Tempest Rising is the third adventure in the Skull & Shackles Adventure Path.

The rulers of the Shackles — the notorious Pirate Council and their leader, the Hurricane King — have taken notice. No longer just seaborne bandits, you and your crew have made names for yourselves as buccaneers not to be trifled with. But potential doesn't mean worthiness, and there's much to do before the pirate lords bestow their trust. You've succeeded on the seas, but in Port Peril, the de facto capital of the Shackles, the stakes are higher, the bounties are bigger, and the price of failure is even greater.
