* The adventurers have come a long way since the violent and desperate launch of their pirate career. Now, their ship's hold full of loot and plunder, they make their triumphant return to Port Peril to present themselves to the Hurricane King to officially gain recognition as Free Captains of the Shackles. But with this recognition comes new opportunities, as other pirates take action to aid or hinder the heroes, during which hints of a hidden plot begin to surface. Maintaining and improving their infamy eventually sends the heroes into the notorious Free Captains' Regatta, an annual race along the fringes of the Eye of Abendego - yet this year, more than a supernatural hurricane lies in wait for those brave or foolish enough to sail these deadly waters! * Continuing the Skull & Shackles Adventure Path, Tempest Rising is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 7th-level characters.
