The heroes arrive in Minkai only to discover the empire is on its knees. The Jade Regent has twisted the ruling government to cater to his despotic whims, and throughout the realm, the people suffer. Before the heroes can attempt to stand against the Jade Regent and liberate Minkai, they must first earn the trust and respect of the ancient empire's people and recruit aid from throughout the beleaguered empire—all the while dodging the oni and ninja agents controlled by the Five Storms. Liberating monasteries ruled by oni, rescuing a famous geisha from a deadly island prison, defeating armies of bandits led by monsters, and standing tall before a corrupt damyio's army of samurai are all in a day's work for the would-be liberators of the empire.

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path also features an extensive gazetteer of the exotic and intriguing land of Minkai and an article about Irori, the god of self-perfection and martial arts. Plus several new monsters drawn from Japanese mythology in the Pathfinder Bestiary, new adventures of Varian Jeggare and Radovan (stars of the Pathfinder Tales novels Prince of Wolves and Master of Devils) in the Pathfinder’s Journal, and much more!
