The Beast of Lepidstadt, a savagely cunning flesh golem, has long terrorized the simple folk of the land. Once captured though, rather than destroy the monster, the enlightened council of the city of Lepidstadt insists the obviously thinking creature face a lawful trial. While on the trail of the Whispering Way the heroes are enlisted to guard it against infuriated townsfolk, scholars of the macabre, and the slaves of its mad creator. When a violent attack releases the berserker, its trail leads to the laboratory lair of a mad scientist and his blasphemous creations, crazed conspirators in the maniacal plot of the Whispering Way. A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 4th-level characters, this volume continues the Carrion Crown Adventure Path, drawing on themes of classic horror stories. This advanture also includes an in-depth look at Pharasma, mysterious goddess of fate, along with details on the Eternal Order of the Palatine Eye, one of Ustalav's most manipulative and mysterious secret societies, plus five terrifying new monsters in the Pathfinder Bestiary, new fiction in the Pathfinder's Journal, and much more!
