The stories of heroes:
Those strange lights you saw in the sky? Yeah, those weren’t just “experimental air force jets”. And the news reports of the “wild animal mauling”? There’s no animal with two rows of teeth that can rip through a carbon-fiber ballistic vest – and certainly not one that is only the size of a Labrador. Oh, and the murderous stabbing rampages from “rebels” in Tibet? What if I told you that they were just unfortunate herdsman that got too close to the dried husk of a demon that possessed them. Yeah, there’s whole lot more to this world than the pin-heads and scientists and politicians want you to know. Gotta keep people from panicking and all that right? But what happens when those things that bump in the night come for you?
When a fragment of an ancient alien superweapon surfaces in the depths of hyperspace, its discovery sets off a race to find the extraterrestrial doomsday device. Hopping from planet to planet in both the civilized Pact Worlds and beyond, the heroes must contend with both the undead Corpse Fleet and the nihilistic Cult of the Devourer, each of which seeks to acquire the alien artifact for its own purposes. Can the heroes find and destroy the superweapon before their enemies seize control of it, or will the Pact Worlds’ sun go dark and cold, a harbinger of dead suns across the galaxy?
In the sleepy coastal town of Sandpoint, evil is brewing. An attack by crazed goblins during the annual Swallowtail Festival quickly turns into something more ominous as the shadows of a dark past come back to haunt the town—and perhaps all of Varisia. Can the heroes stop the awakening of a legendary runelord and keep him from reclaiming his lost kingdom of greed?
