Spires of Xin-Shalast is the sixth and final adventure in the Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path.

The restoration of Thassilon has begun. Within his fortress-city of Xin-Shalast, Karzoug, Runelord of Greed, stirs from his ages-long slumber. Those who survive climbing the dizzying Kodar Mountains and exploring the ruined city of Xin-Shalast must still face Karzoug’s most nefarious guardians and fight their way to the Eye of Avarice. Within that magical refuge they’ll finally face Karzoug himself in a battle to determine the fate of all Varisia. Will the heroes survive, or will the runelords rise once more?
