Test of FireD&D Insider Article
The Scales of War Adventure Path
by Scott Fitzgerald Gray

In a last-ditch effort to win its campaign against the forces of good, half of Tiamat’s remaining army has been sent to hold her final redoubt in the planes— the legendary City of Brass. By virtue of foul rituals and dark pacts undertaken with Bashumgarda, the Lord of the Efreets, the Dragon Queen has bolstered her draconic servants with elemental power that may yet turn the tide of war in her favor. The heroes must infiltrate this stronghold and win the alliance of a formidable efreet noble before squaring off against the blue exarch of Tiamat in a city under siege. “Test of Fire” is an adventure for five characters midway through 27th level and the penultimate episode in the Scales of War adventure path.

You call yourselves heroes? You claim greatness? Prove it to those who survived the Dawn Wars of gods and primordials. Prove it before the lords of fire and chaos. Prove in this Crucible Court of the City of Brass that you are worthy of the allegiance of the efreets!
