With five shards of the Shattered Star secure, visions pointÂ toward one of Varisia”s most remote corners as the site protectingÂ the sixth fragment of the powerful artifact. Yet the heroes are notÂ the first to search for this shard-upon arriving at the ancient ruinÂ known as Guiltspur, they find a small army of giants said to beÂ ruled by a blue dragon already excavating the site. And as theÂ heroes soon learn, there are other forces searching for the finalÂ shards from the Darklands below, and even from beyond realityÂ itself, for Guiltspur lies dangerously close to the nightmare realmÂ of Leng!Â Into the Nightmare Rift is a Pathfinder Roleplaying GameÂ adventure for 13th-Â–level characters. This volume continues theÂ Shattered Star Adventure Path, including articles on Lissala, the
ancient goddess of runes and fate, a gazetteer of the weirdÂ demiplane of Leng, and several new monsters (includingÂ Lovecraftian terrors like the nightgaunt) in the PathfinderÂ Bestiary. Author Bill Ward (Return of the Sword) continues a new
novella in the Pathfinder’s Journal.Â Each monthly full-Â–color softcover Pathfinder Adventure PathÂ volume contains an in-Â–depth adventure scenario, stats for severalÂ new monsters, and support articles meant to give Game MastersÂ additional material to expand their campaign. Pathfinder AdventureÂ Path volumes use the Open Game License and work with both theÂ Pathfinder RPG and the world’s oldest fantasy RPG.
