The Students Become the Masters! Lore-speakers are the teachers of the Magaambya school of magic, and the heroes have graduated and joined their ranks. Sent with their students to the edge of the Mwangi Expanse, these new teachers must unearth ancient ruins while keeping themselves and their students out of danger.

They must liberate a town, stop an evil cult, and show their students how heroes stand as wardens of the world.

“Hurricane’s Howl” is a Pathfinder adventure for four 8th-level characters. This adventure continues the Strength of Thousands Adventure Path, a six-part, monthly campaign in which the heroes rise from humble magic academy students to influential teachers, and ultimately decide the fate of the Magaambya. This adventure also presents a comprehensive gazetteer of a Sodden Lands town, as well as new monsters and new rules flying in on the hurricane’s winds!

Each monthly full-color softcover Pathfinder Adventure Path volume contains an in-depth adventure scenario, stats for several new monsters, and support articles meant to give Game Masters additional material to expand their campaign. Pathfinder Adventure Path volumes use the Open Game License and work with both the Pathfinder RPG and the world’s oldest fantasy RPG.
