There are some suggestion for exploring the city of Xin, along with possible encounters. There is also an outline of a plot involving the rise of another runelord—Zutha, Lord of Gluttony.

When it comes down to it, the suggestions here are not so much for continuing the campaign, but rather continuing this particular adventure into a new campaign. After this is an article detailing each of the Runelords of Thassilon.

Each runelord gets a full page of detail covering history, legacies, and relics, as well as a portrait.

I enjoyed this article a great deal. I should point out that these are the final runelords, the ones who were ruling when Earthfall struck, the ones who hid themselves away in suspended animation and have the potential to rise again. All campaigns need variety, which Shattered Star provides little of.

Also, as an advertised sequel to the first three adventure paths Rise of the Runelords, Curse of the Crimson Throne, and Second Darkness , Shattered Star falls considerably flat.

There is very little connecting it to these previous APs. The events of Rise of the Runelords only provide the impetus to collect the shards and have no other impact on any of the Shattered Star adventures. As best as I can find, there is absolutely no connection with Second Darkness other than a small group of drow turning up in one adventure. Only Curse of the Crimson Throne has any real direct references to it.

The limitations on dimensional travel are a poor decision, but otherwise the dungeon has quite a bit going for it. I do think that groups that have played through the entirety of Shattered Star will find this adventure a quite satisfactory conclusion. This tells the story of a Pathfinder in Riddleport, trying to determine whether a dwarf alchemist has the last journal of Jan Lortis, a famous Pathfinder. While there, she becomes distracted by the activities of some old acquaintances and uncovers a drug ring, all the while coming to terms with her own self-identity.

The story certainly starts very slowly. Very little actually happens in the first instalment. The story initially concentrates a little too much on setting the scene by describing Riddleport and having Taldara reflect on various aspects on the city and how she got there in the first place. Most everything she says or does feels scripted as something she needs to do rather than something Taldara would do.

She even reflects on her life as a story and what the story needs her to do. She remained a complete enigma to me. Admittedly, we come to understand those characters as individuals better than we do Taldara, even if they are only painted in broad strokes and have little depth to them.

However, their relationship to Taldara is rather mystifying. She apparently adventured with them back in Magnimar although how much is never made clear , but she demonstrates very little affection for any of them.

Even her relationship with Kostin, whom it is made explicitly clear she had a previous sexual encounter with, is blurry and indistinct.

She has no clear opinion on Kostin. However, her actions and attitudes around these characters should make her opinions of them at least somewhat apparent. The villain, Gundsric, comes across much more successfully than any of the other characters in the story.

And despite his horrendously evil plans, there is a touch of the sympathetic to him, which makes him work particularly well as a villain. Even though he deserves what happens to him, you do end up feeling just a touch of pity for him as well. The wererats, the other villains in the story, are pretty much characterless, nothing more than stock bad guys to fight. The plot itself does start to get interesting once it gets going after the first few instalments.

It is gruesome, true. But it is also both creative and, retroactively, completely obvious, which is exactly what it should be. There are a few loose ends that bother me a little.

It seems to happen for no other reason than to stop the good guys winning too easily—but then why was such a powerful item in the story in the first place? Posted by. Frequently bought together.

The conclusion of the Shattered Star AP is not a whimper, but a bang! Once the Sihedron is rebuilt, the ancient city of Xin rises. This results in a catastrophic flood and a battle with a mighty ancient servant of Runelord Sorshen. From there you go to the ancient capital of Thassilon.

There you must battle many clockwork guardians, Xin's failed experiments, a graveknight rune giant, a mighty aboleth, the ghost of Xin, and finally the Clockwork Reliquary. This volume also includes a bestiary with 4 new monsters, and it includes an article on the seven runelords of sin, which is fascinating.

This is a great volume if you enjoyed Rise of the Runelords. Perhaps I just expect too much.

The final adventure in the series sees the adventurers already 15th level when this adventure starts and, likely, 17th level, or even 18th, by the time they face the Clockwork Reliquary assemble the Shatterred Star--which causes the long-lost city of Xin to rise from the ocean only miles from Magnimar. The adventureres must first save the population of Magnimar from the dangers posed by the massive city's re-emergence only miles from the harbor, and then must go to the city of Xin and investigate the ruins for the Pathfinder Society.

Pretty obvious, pretty straight-forward.

The city of Xin is mostly destroyed but the crystal fortress of the original ruler Xin himself still exists and poses a challenge for the characters, as not only does it still include functioning guardians mostly clockwork-type creatures, a few bound monsters, and a couple of undead encounters but also another investigator--and, on top of it all, it is haunted by the spirit of Xin himself.In contrast to the earlier Mawangdui medical texts, the Huangdi Neijing discussion indicates the increasing importance under the Han of the new form of polity, not only, as Lewis argues, as a model for structuring space through controlling the flows of substance Lewis , 37 , but also as a new equilibrium in the relation between the emperor and his aids.

This adds a nice twist to many battles throughout the palace, as Xin could take control of any of the numerous constructs throughout it, giving it new abilities.
