Shadow Lodge

Shadow Lodge

For decades, a growing segment of the Pathfinder Society’s membership has become disillusioned with the Grand Lodge. They represent dissenters and traitors to the Society and its causes, though they do not view themselves as evil: the Shadow Lodge holds the Decemvirate accountable for its treatment of field agents and the consequences of its missions. (If you remember The Rock, Ed Harris played a disillusioned veteran who was tired of the government not taking responsibilty for the damage they left in their wake. If you like spies or want to see the Grand Lodge become more serious, this is the faction.)
