Comment on Review – Inner Sea Gods (Pathfinder) by Review – Lost Omens Pathfinder Society Guide – Strange Assembly https://www.strangeassembly.com/2018/review-inner-sea-gods-pathfinder#comment-29540 Thu, 12 Nov 2020 20:34:06 +0000 https://www.strangeassembly.com/?p=8752#comment-29540 […] There are about 15 pages on history and life in the Society, plus another 40 pages that are divided by factions (that includes the Envoys/Grand Archive/Horizon Hunters/Vigilant Seal divisions and the Scrolls/Swords/Spells).
