From the announcement:
Syrinscape, developer of the app that creates custom, movie-like soundscapes for the tabletop gaming experience, announces today the release of the Spires of Xin-Shalast SoundPack, the final chapter in the wildly popular Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
Having steeped their weapons in the ancient magic of Thassilon, the PCs in Pathfinder RPG Adventure Path: Spires of Xin-Shalast, are finally ready to confront the newly risen Runelord Karzoug at the seat of his power. To do so, they must travel high into the mountains, to the fabled city of Xin-Shalast, where they will be confronted by enormous giants, dragons, and other monsters before they can finally confront the mad wizard of greed in his mountaintop palace. With the Spires of Xin-Shalast SoundPack from Syrinscape, players will experience this epic confrontation like never before, as the entire campaign comes to life with hand-crafted, custom soundscapes, effects, music, and beastly cacophony.
The Spires of Xin-Shalast SoundPack from Syrinscape provides the complete soundscape for the adventure, including:
• An enormous and very angry Blue Dragon
• The weirdness of Leng Spiders
• A stampede of Aurochs
• The Wendigo
• An inhumanely tall tower
• A semi-plain of fire
• A huge animated chain
• And much, much more!

About Pathfinder RPG
The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is the wildly popular tabletop RPG, in which players take on the role of brave adventurers fighting to survive in a world beset by magic and evil. The Pathfinder RPG is currently translated into multiple languages, and the vibrant Pathfinder universe has been licensed for comic book series, graphic novels, miniatures, plush toys, and apparel, and is being developed into a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game.
Using a powerful audio engine and complex algorithms to produce ever-changing soundscapes and rich encounter-specific music, Syrinscape conjures every aural landscape imaginable, from ethereal forests and stony shorelines, to dank, vermin-filled dungeons, to the spooky depths of the underdark. Designed by accomplished composer and tabletop gamer Benjamin Loomes, along with the developers at the Interaction Consortium, Syrinscape builds on more than 6 years of prototyping and community feedback. Syrinscape is based in Australia. Syrinscape is available for a wide range of devices, including PC, Mac, Android Tablets, and iPads, and the players can be downloaded via syrinscape for free.
