Vaults of Madness, an adventure by Greg A. Vaughan with support articles by Jesse Benner, Gareth Hanrahan, and Jason Nelson and fiction by Robin D. Laws, is the fourth in the Serpent's Skull adventure path and was released in December 2010.

This Way Lies MadnessThe PCs are now the masters of the lost city of Saventh-Yhi—or are they? For no sooner is the city won than the mighty Gorilla King and his simian followers come to take it for their own. At the same time, the PCs learn of a missing Pathfinder imprisoned in a subterranean city beneath their new holding. Before they can rescue him, however, the PCs must venture into seven ancient vaults to find the entrance to the hidden city. Can they survive the dangers of these strange constructions, or will they succumb to madness first?

Adventure synopsis

Level
  • 10th
  • Location(s)
  • Saventh-Yhi
  • Ilmurea
  • Mwangi Expanse
  • A strange swashbuckler rescued in the City of Seven Spears reveals the secret beneath Saventh-Yhi—a forgotten serpentfolk city called Ilmurea, inspiration for the superstitious natives' fears of a terrible evil lurking just underfoot. The heroes must accompany their new ally to rescue her captured companions in the city below, braving the trap-laden, monster-infested Vaults of Madness that stand between Saventh-Yhi and Ilmurea. But just as they venture forth, a new inhabitant takes up residence in the City of Seven Spears—the legendary Gorilla King himself!
