Abomination Vaults (adventure path)

Abomination Vaults is the twenty-eighth Pathfinder Adventure Path and the first three-volume Pathfinder Adventure Path published by Paizo Inc., and ran from January 2021 to March 2021. It is loosely tied to the Second Edition Pathfinder Beginner Box, which is also set in Otari, and provides an easier to manage first campaign for players and gamemasters. It is also focused on a large dungeon complex, something Paizo had wanted to do for some time, but Paizo considered that six volumes would be too much to keep interest in a single site.[1]

Enter the megadungeon! Evil stirs in the depths of the Abomination Vaults, a sprawling dungeon where the evil sorcerer Belcorra Haruvex attempted to raise an army of monsters hundreds of years ago. Brave heroes must venture into a dungeon full of beasts and traps to prevent a spiteful villain from rising again.

Ruins of Gauntlight Written by James Jacobs Released January 2021
Enter the megadungeon! When the mysterious Gauntlight, an eerie landlocked lighthouse, glows with baleful light, the people of Otari know something terrible is beginning. The town's newest heroes must venture into the ruins around the lighthouse—and delve the dungeon levels far beneath it—to discover the evil the Gauntlight heralds. Hideous monsters, deadly traps, and mysterious ghosts all await the heroes who dare to enter the sprawling megadungeon called the Abomination Vaults!

Hands of the Devil Written by Vanessa Hoskins Released February 2021
Beware when dealing with devils! The Abomination Vaults sprawl far beneath the mysterious Gauntlight, and it's time to take weapons, torches, and wits into the deeper dungeons. Here, vile fleshcrafters labor to create armies of monsters for their long-dead leader, and a force of devils still work to maintain order among the feral and fractious monsters. An unlikely ally can reveal the secrets of the Abomination Vaults, but his price is steep and must be paid in blood.

Eyes of Empty Death Written by Stephen Radney-MacFarland Released March 2021
Death lurks in the darkness! The deepest levels of the Abomination Vaults contain massive caverns and a relic left behind by one of the Outer Gods. The heroes must negotiate the ruthless politics of insular drow, vampiric urdefhans, and stranger creatures for the tools they need to vanquish Belcorra Haruvex. Yet even as the heroes grow nearer, the undead sorcerer's power increases, and the heroes must put her to rest before she claims the full might of her malevolent patron.
