They'd likely end up having a schism and losing their Iomedae members, or the Iomedae members would convert, or the entire organizaiton would go rogue and they'd lose the Asmodeus members, or something along those lines. They would not emerge unscathed in the end.
I'm assuming that was a PFS question, and I'm not familiar enough with PFS and their faction leaders to remember her name without having to go look it up.
But it's important to remember this—PFS is reactive to what we do in the campaign setting, and its elements build off of what we create. PFS is one possible incarnation/subset of a Golarion, alongside of all the home games running out there. It's not intended to be, itself, a primary source of baseline canon.
PFS is one of the reasons I'm so frustrated trying to wrap my head around canon. So much seems to happen in it that trying to establish a headcanon as close to the true Golarion as possible seems nigh impossible. I mean, apparently they killed Krune, saved some noble family from shadows or vampires or whatnot, won a magic tapestry from the Ruby Phoenix Tournament that lets them teleport anywhere, and gave the Ruby Prince a wasting disease that's made him ban the Pathfinders from Osirion out of spite!
I feel locked out of the loop because I don't have time in my schedule to join a regular PFS group and experience these things. It'd be different if PFS was done independently, but since its materials ARE published by Paizo, it's canon by default, isn't it? I thought that's how canon worked: Everything released as official stuff from the creators is part of it, like the EU books for Star Wars, or the Silmarillion and the Book of Lost Tales for Tolkien.
