Chapter 4: "Forest of Spirits"
by Richard Pett
The heroes finally reach the distant land of Tian Xia, only to once again attract the attention of the oni of the Five Storms. But not everyone wants them dead—the heroes must meet a mysterious woman named Miyaro who promises to lead them to allies deep in the Forest of Spirits. These mysterious spiritual guardians—known as kami—reveal that the oni of the Five Storms once dwelt in a fortress known as the House of Withered Blossoms, deep in the forest. Much can be learned at this fortress, but a few of the old inhabitants remain…
A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 10th-level characters, this volume continues the Jade Regent Adventure Path, a sweeping quest that takes the heroes from familiar territory in Varisia all the way across the ice fields of the Crown of the World to distant Tian Xia, the land of the Dragon Empires. This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path also features an investigation of the strange spiritual creatures known as kami, as well as a larger article that explores the most notorious ninja clans of the empire of Minkai. Plus several new monsters drawn from Japanese mythology in the Pathfinder Bestiary, new adventures of Varian Jeggare and Radovan (stars of the Pathfinder Tales novels Prince of Wolves and Master of Devils) in the Pathfinder’s Journal, and much more!
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.
