Sky King's Tomb is the thirty-sixth Pathfinder Adventure Path and runs from July 2023 to September 2023.

Millenia ago, the dwarven creator god Torag shook the earth and called the dwarves to the surface in the Quest for Sky. Taargick rose from the hardships of this journey, becoming the Sky King of Highhelm. For centuries he ruled, creating monuments to Torag and the accomplishments of his people… And then he vanished without a trace. Invited guests of the clans of Highhelm find themselves embroiled in a story of seekers, survivors, and heroes discovering the Sky King’s Tomb.

Finding a legendary tomb requires tracking an equally legendary cave worm said to dwell there. As the adventurers set out from Highhelm, they must brave the Darklands' dangers, navigate a treacherous fey city, and recover the relic that retraces the cave worm's path. Yet in doing so, they learn of nefarious rivals who also seek the tomb—rivals the adventurers might stop by infiltrating an unforgiving underground metropolis.

For level 8. History Sealed in Stone

For all his epic deeds, the first high king earned countless enemies, and word of his tomb's rediscovery has gathered an eclectic army of dwarves' ancient enemies. To preserve the tomb and save a dwarven city, the adventurers must infiltrate, splinter, and sabotage the gathering legion. Only in this chaos can the adventurers catch up to their rival at the tomb itself. The question isn't just whether they can prevail, but whether their victory makes them worthy of the tomb's greatest secrets.
