The Scales of War Adventure Path continues. The characters are dispatched with their deva ally Amyria to the island nation of Nefelus, home of sages and masters of the arcane.

As the PCs soon discover, a new enemy has blockaded the nation, and the heroes must end the blockade and help persuade Nefelus to join their cause. An adventure for 14th-level PCs.

An adventure for 3rd-level PCs.
