Chapter 3: "The Jackal's Price"
by Darrin Drader
The savage Carrion King is dead, and in his treasure the heroes recover a mysterious magical map. Rumored to be a portal to several islands of paradise, the heroes must travel across the country to the distant city of Katapesh to seek aid in unraveling the map’s powerful magic and perhaps to find a buyer for the precious item. Unfortunately, the heroes aren’t the only ones with an interest in the map, and before long they’ll be thrown up against a mysterious group of violent genies and one of Katapesh’s most notorious crimelords—a shapeshifting cult leader known only as Father Jackal.
This volume of Pathfinder also includes an in-depth exploration of the world’s genies, reveals many secrets of the world’s second-largest city, and features a bonus adventure set at a remote desert oasis. Also included are several new monsters and the third part of New York Times best-selling author Elaine Cunningham’s Pathfinder Journal.
For characters of 7th to 9th level.
