Pathfinder Society Adventures
The Consortium is a semi-covert crime syndicate specializing in running contraband in and out of Absalom. Posing as a merchant’s collective, they have slowly seeped their way into every facet of Diobel’s social and political infrastructure, with high-ranking members serving as elected officials and holding prominent social positions. They ruthlessly persecute nonaffiliates, and those caught smuggling are righteously handed over to Absalom’s officials. Such seemingly aggressive tactics create a thickly spun chrysalis of deceit to mask their criminal motives. Capital gained from dues and their own smuggling operations funds a hierarchy of minions used to maintain the group’s political infrastructure and protect its extensive property holdings. Diobel also provides a perfect strategic location for the Consortium to keep watch over activities in Absalom. Ultimately, the Consortium seeks to extend its gluttonous reach into the City at the Center of the World; if not openly, then by plucking its shadowed strings.
