Pathfinder: Shadow of Heresy

Facilitator: 
Michael

In the homebrew setting of Volentia, play as one of five 14th level characters contracted by the Church to find the location of a rumored gathering of heretics dubbed the Shadow Conclave. This gathering, should it succeed as planned, would unite the various heretical sects and pose a threat large enough to shake the foundations of the Empire. The adventure mixes roleplay with combat as players attempt to hunt down and exterminate the Conclave as either an emotionally scarred Paladin who has come to question whether his slaughtering of heretics is ethical, a zealous Inquisitor who enjoys his work perhaps a little too much, a noble-born Curatrix who struggles to keep the vows of her order of restrained monk-women, an elven Ranger who constantly battles against the prejudice humans have of other races while trying to hide his hate of them, and an acclaimed Wizard who despite her achievements still has not garnered the respect she desires because she is a woman. Will the Church's champions succeed in rescuing the Empire from perhaps the most dangerous threat it has ever faced? Or will their personal struggles inhibit their ability to complete the task set before them? Will they rise triumphant over the challenges they are to face? Or will they be cut down and forgotten to leave the Empire roiling in turmoil?
