Heroes of the Everflame
The Decemvirate is the ruling body of the well-known Pathfinder Society and is headquartered in the Grand Lodge in Absalom. As per the name, it is composed of 10 experienced Pathfinders. The identities of the Decemvirate are a closely guarded secret, and their motivations are often shrouded in mystery, Pathfinder members often shrug-off strange orders from above as simply the “will of the Ten”. Nevertheless, members of the Society are sworn to absolutely obey the will of the Decemvirate, or risk expulsion or an even darker fate.
Because their identities are unknown, some say even masked to the gods, members seem ageless. It is assumed that the position is passed down through a hidden method, although it is not beyond reason that the Decemvirate age very slowly or are truly immortal.
The Decemvirate has existed almost as long as the Society itself. It was created as a result of the increasing complexity of the growing Pathfinder Society, and instituted as a way to maintain the numerous far-flung lodges and facilitate communication between members.
