an evil robe of the archmagi, a headband of vast intelligence +6, a ring of wizardry II, and a cape of the mountebank.

The bulk of the journal catalogs Vraxeris’s studies and the development of an improved version of clone that effectively granted him immortality. The drawback was that each time he switched bodies, he lost a portion ofhis own knowledge and experience, forcing himself to relearn much with each incarnation. At several points in the book, he also speaks of how with each new clone, the debilitating dementia that lurks at the end of his life manifests a little sooner-with each new body, his effective lifespan shrank. It seems obvious that the dementia finally struck soon enough to prevent him from creating a new clone, and thus finally, death claimed him. A wizard could use the journal to rebuild Vraxeris’s version of improved clone, but the research for creating this powerful 9th-level spell is particularly onerous and would itself consume most of a lifetime. Nevertheless, the journal is worth 15,000 gp for this information alone, and if word of its contents were to spread, all manner of unscrupulous wizards would doubtless do much to claim it by more violent means.

The four incense burners are minor magical devices that never go out or run out of fuel; they can be commanded to emit any number of pleasant and mildly narcotic scents. Each is worth 500 gp. masterwork ranseur, belt of mighty constitution +2, bracers of armor +3, jewelry worth 8,000 gp

2 glamered mithral chain shirt, sadist’s lash,1 dagger, belt of physical might +4 (Dex, Con)

TREASURE: A DC 20 Perception check reveals something hidden under the southernmost bed: a handy haversack that contains a tome of understandinig +1, six potions of cure moderate wounds, a potion of remove disease, and a potion of remove paralysis.

TREASURE: Strewn about the chamber are a dozen exotic, bejeweled toys and devices of decidedly erotic natures that Delvahine uses in her debauches . The functions of some of the s e devices are salaciously obvious in some cases , but in others isn’t always clear at first glance. As a collection, they are worth 2,400 gp, but not all merchants would publicly admit to an interest in purchasing them, requiring the merchant to be helpful (or bluffed as to the true nature of the devices before they can be sold. In any event, any one of these toys works as a component for a runeforged weapon.

Dominant/Commanding (opposes transmutation) : A union
of enchantment and illusion magic, a dominant weapon functions

the shapechanger subtype. As long as the weapon is carried, it can

polymorph or petrification) inflicted on the wielder per day

Of greater value are the two star sapphire eyes (each worth 1,000 gp) and the dozen amethyst grapes (each worth 300 gp). The wine stored in the alcoves remains delicious to this day, preserved by Runeforge’s aura. In all, there are 68 bottles in this room, each of which is worth 100 gp-and each of which could serve as components to make gluttonous runiforged weapons.

TREASURE: One of the sarcophagi contains 11 spellbooks Azaven has claimed from enemies and fallen allies. Each of these spellbooks bears the occasional notation written in Thassilonian, but the actual spells within-a wide range of 1st- to 8th-level spells-can be identified as normal. All of the spells Azaven has prepared can be found among these aged tomes, as can any other potent or rare spell you wish to include in the campaign. The second coffin contains 7,000 gp in mixed jewels, gems, and fine linens Azaven stores for fabricate spells, an eversmokinig bottle, a golembane scarab, and all of the lich’s personal spellbooks.

TREASURE: This massive pile of treasure consists of 39,500cp, 9,410 sp, 3,500 gp, and 250 pp. Mixed in with the coins are tapestries, small items of furniture made of precious woods, delicate pieces of jewelry and fine works of art, silverware and candelabras, six everburning torches, and several decorative boxes spilling pieces ofjewelry worth an additional 16,000gp in all.

26 Empty vials – still wet





on frozen moutain xin awaits, his regal voice the yawning gates

+1 breastplate, fanged falchion, +1 cold iron returning dagger, headband of inspired wisdom +2, 750 gp in diamond dust

CL 11
PRICE 22,375 GP
The blade of this brutal-looking falchion is serrated, forming the fangs of the stylized etching of a jackal’s profile on the shimmering metal. Such weapons are fashioned in honor of Lamashtu and are favored by her most powerful cultists as weapons not only for battle, but also for sacrifice.
A fanged falchion is a + 1 unholy falchion and wounds caused by the weapon’s serrated edge are horrifically ragged and bleed profusely. Whenever a fanged falchion’s wielder scores a successful critical hit with it, the sword’s blade animates and “chews” at its victim. In addition to doing damage for the critical hit, this horrific chewing deals 2 points of Constitution damage and stuns the victim for 1 round (Fort DC 15 negates). Creatures immune to critical hits are immune to this Constitution damage and the stun effect.

Revelation Quill
Aura strong divination
CL 20
weight 3 lbs
minor artifact

The first revelation quills were created by the followers of the Peacock Spirit. Since the fall of Thassilon, the method for creating them has been lost. The few revelation quills that
remain today continue to function, drawing their revelations, it is said, from the Peacock Spirit itself. The quill is fashioned from a peacock’s tail feather. Its nib is made of bone, and when held in one’s hand, the quill seems strangely heavy. If placed in an empty vial or other glass container of similar size and left there for an hour, a revelation quill fills that
container with ink. The ink created is of a random color 50% of the time, otherwise the ink is black. While a revelation quill can certainly function as a standard writing implement, its true strength lies in its ability to answer questions. Once per day, if the user concentrates on a specific future goal, event, or activity occurring within the coming week, the revelation
quill takes over and writes out a short phrase in response, often in the form of a cryptic rhyme or omen, much in the same way the divination spell functions. Once per week, the user may use the quill in the same way to cast contact other plane instead, asking up to 10 questions of the mysterious intellect that guides the revelation quill.

The scribbles on the wall ofthis room contain more than merely invocations to Lamashtu-they consist of notes the Scribbler has taken regarding the state of the world beyond, as reported to him by the various spirits and outsiders he’s conjured, as well as via commune, divination, and speak with dead spells that he cast on the dead body he keeps here. The notes impart a feeling of someone from out of time doing what he can to gather intelligence on a world that has moved on. Runeforge is mentioned several times-the Scribbler very much wants to send agents to the dungeon in order to gather supplies and raid it for magic items and texts, since he has grown convinced that the complex has long since been forgotten and abandoned. In particular, his notes speak of something called runeforged weapons­ items that the Scribbler believes could be quite useful against the runelords and their allies, yet the methods of creation of which seem to have been lost somewhere in Runeforge itself.

Notes from the game

Karzoug was the Runelord of Greed. While he was, himself, an Azlanti human, he was a powerful man indeed—said to be the most gifted manipulator of Transmutation magic in all of Thassilon, and to have lived for hundreds of years. He ruled a region called Shalast, part of the ancient empire of Thassilon, over 10,000 years ago.

Karzoug’s armies were composed primarily of giants who followed his every command—the giants were ruled by towering monsters known as rune giants, who were themselves runelord pawns. Karzoug counted other powerful creatures as his allies as well, such as blue dragons, eerie denizens from the nightmare realm of Leng, blooddrinking outsiders known as scarlet walkers, and immense lamia harridans who towered over most giants.

Karzoug focused his magic on the school of transmutation, magic associated in Thassilonian times with the virtue of wealth. Under his reign, though, this virtue of rule became more associated with the sin of greed. Among the runelords, his mastery of greed magic was uncontested, yet in the schools of illusion and enchantment (related to the sins of pride and lust), his skills had atrophied greatly. Many believed that weapons infused with illusion and enchantment magic, known as “dominant weapons,” would be particularly potent against Karzoug, yet no record of someone attacking the runelord with such a weapon exists within the library.

Karzoug warred with his neighbors, but none more so than Alaznist, the Runelord of Wrath and ruler of Bakrakhan. Between their nations, along a ridge known as the Rasp, Karzoug built immense sentinel statues to watch over Bakrakhan, while Alaznist built towers called Hellfire Flumes to prevent Karzoug’s armies from invading. Citizens of both nations worried that the war between Karzoug and Alaznist would soon escalate to the point where they could bring about the end of the world.

kp 0
As Karzoug and Alaznist’s war intensified, and as wars between other runelords threatened more than just their armies, the runelords devised methods in which they could escape the world and enter a state of suspended animation, so they could ride out cataclysms. In theory, their surviving minions would then waken them to reclaim their empires once the cataclysms had ended.

Xin Shalast

Xin-Shalast is a legendary lost city, rumored to be hidden somewhere in the Kodar Mountains. Stories hold that Xin-Shalast had gold streets and gemstone buildings, and sat under the gaze of a mountain that could see.

Xin-Shalast was the capital city of an empire called Shalast, one of seven that composed the ancient empire of Thassilon. Legend holds that Xin-Shalast lay at the headwaters of the sacred River Avah—which Varisian folklore says leads to an earthly paradise sacred to Desna. Unfortunately, no record of where this river may have once flowed exists today, and most scholars believe the river itself to have been destroyed during Earthfall.

In the final centuries before Earthfall ended Thassilon, Xin-Shalast was ruled by Runelord Karzoug, one of the lords of the Thassilonian Empire. The primary architects of the immense city were tribes of giants, themselves ruled by powerful beings known as rune giants.

The Spires of Xin-Shalast stand upon the mythical mountain of Mhar Massif. This mountain of legendary proportions pierces the skies above the Kodars, and is said to be the highest peak in the entire range of stupendously inhospitable mountains.

Mhar Massif is said to serve as a bridge to strange realms beyond Golarion—notably, to the nightmare dimension of Leng. The connections with the nightmare realm of Leng were said to have infused the region around the peak of Mhar Massif with dangerous eldritch and otherworldly energies.

Since the reader does not need to sleep while in the Therassic Library, they will not notice the effects of a failed save until after leaving the library. The clockwork librarian has read this book, but is unaware of this trap because it is immune to mind-affecting effects and does not sleep.


Runeforge was created as a place where agents of the seven runelords could gather to study magic.

The runelords wove wards around Runeforge that barred entrance into the complex to any runelord or his direct agents, in order to keep the research within free from sabotage at the hands of an enemy.

Runeforge’s magical enhancements sustained those within without the need to eat, drink, or even sleep.

The final project the runelords set Runeforge on was the development of ways the runelords could escape the imminent fall of their empire. Each faction developed a unique answer for its runelord, based upon the underlying principles of that faction’s magical traditions.

Translated from Thassilonian among the ravings about Lamashtu:


Loot - final

Combat Gear +1 turtle shell of light fortification*, +1 huge unholy heavy flail, 2 potions of cure serious wounds; Other Gear wooden holy symbol *The runes of the magic are inscribed on the prophet’s natural turtle shell and keep their power even if the shell is removed from his body

The treasure consists of 3,306 sp, a carved mammoth bone statuette of a much smaller mammoth worth 700 gp, an eye patch with a mock eye of black star sapphire and moonstone worth 900 gp, a mithral anklet worth 1,000 gp, a jeweled gold crown worth 4,000 gp, a +2 deftnding bladed scarf, a leather pouch containing seven potions of cure moderate wounds and a potion of remove disease, and an efficient quiver containing 16 + 1 undead bane arrows and one ,greater monstrous humanoid slaying arrow.

A DC 25 Knowledge (nobility) check reveals that the crown is in fact the Lost Crown of the Pallgreves clan, one of the oldest noble families of Janderhoff The dwarves would gladly pay 10,000 gp for its return.

Although a carpet of coins covers the innermost section of Longtooth’s cave, most of these coins are copper pieces. In all, the coins consist of 360,055 cp, 23,145 sp, 3.403 gp, and 23 pp. In addition, the collection of treasure includes several gemstones: a water opal worth 1,ooo gp, a rich blue diamond worth 1,6oo gp, and a black opal worth 8,ooo gp are Longtooth’s favorites , though there are 53 additional gems worth a total of 3,500 gp. A fine linen tapestry depicting monks sparring in a courtyard is rolled up and leans against the wall-this tapestry weighs 50 pounds but is worth 6oo gp. Finally, a set of solid silver idols sits on a ledge on the innermost wall. These idols are each worth 6oogp-they depict a wyvern with a human rider, a human warrior trampling a demon underfoot, a centaur dressed

in plate mail armor, and a leaping fish with a wide mouth filled with teeth. A sixth idol is in fact made of platinum. It depicts a robed figure coverd in thassalonian runes, and is worth 5,000 gp.

Galenmir’s wealth is mostly invested in his gear, but he also has an impressive collection of scalps and war trophies, including the preserved head of a frost giant jarl, the beards of 100 dwarves (each neatly bundled and secured with a silver ring worth 10 gp), part of a marsh giant’s grossly elastic but impressively tattooed hide, and bits ofbroken and dented breastplates from the plate armor of a dozen different warriors (worth 20 gp each). Galenmir’s favorite collection is a neatly sorted grouping of 33 shields, each marked with the name of a human, elf, or dwarf hero Galenmir defeated in combat.

one of the shields belonged to Anstan Jeggare, an exiled bastard from the affluent Jeggare family of Korvosa. This shield alone is magical +1 arrow catching heavy steel shield.

Each disgusting guard carries a bag of filthy, troll-groped treasure at his belt-payment from Mokmurian for his work here. Hurek’s bag contains a large collection of colorful, striped, shiny, but ultimately worthless stones weighing 100 pounds in all. Without a DC 15 Appraise check to note the differences, the stones could easily be mistaken for valuable agate, onyx, and mithral ore of various kinds. Durek carries the real treasure-assorted bits of armor and helmets and a dire bear skull. The armor includes a suit of Small half ­plate, a masterwork breastplate, six chain shirts, and a +1 ghost touch gauntlet. Unknown to either troll, one ofthe chain shirts has a hidden pouch in its lining that can be found with a DC 30 Perception check-it contains an air elemental gem. +1 large full plate, runechill hatchets (2)

Slot none; Price 5,312 gp; Aura moderate necromancy; CL 5th; Weight 6 lbs.


Runefrost hatchets are sized for Large creatures, but resizes so it can be wielded by Medium creatures as battleaxes or Small creatures as greataxes. Their blades are jagged and carved with ancient runes, and the weapons always feel cold to the touch. A runefrost hatchet otherwise functions as a 1 battleaxe, but once per day as a free action, its wielder can cause the runes on the blade to flare up with flickering cold blue light. For the next 5 rounds, the axe deals an additional +1d6 points of negative energy damage on a hit. Any creature that takes any amount of this additional negative energy damage must also succeed at a DC 12 Fortitude save or take 1 point of Strength damage. An undead creature struck by a runefrost hatchet does not gain this negative energy as healing, but instead must make a DC 12 Will saving throw or flee as if panicked for 1d45 rounds.


Craft Magic Arms and Armor, chill touch; Cost 2,812 gp
