Souls for Smuggler's Shiv, an adventure by James Jacobs with support articles by Clinton Boomer and F. Wesley Schneider, and fiction by Robin D. Laws, was released in August 2010. It is the first of six adventures in the Serpent's Skull adventure path.

Only the Strong SurviveA deadly storm shipwrecks the passengers and crew of the Jenivere upon infamous Smuggler's Shiv, an island off the coast of the jungle realm of Sargava. If they’re to have any hope of escaping the notorious pirates’ graveyard, the survivors will need to band together to outwit the isle’s strange beasts and legendary menaces. But can the PCs unite the swift-to-squabble castaways, especially when several seem to have mysterious goals of their own? And does Smuggler's Shiv hide secrets even deadlier than its desperate denizens?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path launches the Serpent's Skull Adventure Path and includes:

Contents

Foreword: "A Tale of a Fateful Trip" by James Jacobs (4)

Paizo's Creative Director talks about the difficulties in beginning a new campaign and avoiding the cliche of "you all meet in a bar". He discusses the challenges faced by PCs when they are stranded on a tropical island at the beginning of this adventure, and addresses how to deal with supplying replacement characters in such a remote location should a PC perish. Lastly, he mentions the encounter area "Treasure Pit" and states that it was based on the real world legend of the Money Pit.
