A series of four quests designed for levels 1-5.

Disagreements among the Pathfinders erupted into violence 300 years ago, spurring the Society's leaders to don helms that hid their identities and protected them from assassins. These ten members of the Decemvirate have remained anonymous to this day, but a recent discovery may uncover new information about this dangerous part of the Society's history. With a unique window into the past, it falls to the PCs to identify these original leaders and the secrets they buried before donning the helms—in the process helping to unveil a hidden threat to the Society.

What the Helms Hide includes four 1-hour adventures that send the PCs across the Inner Sea region to uncover the secretive Decemvirate's past. The series includes a finale adventure, but players can experience the other parts in any order.

Written by Calder CaDavid, Lysle Kapp, Kendra Leigh Speedling, and Nate Wright.

What tier are we looking at? I have a Cavalier or Samurai at 4th level and a Gravewalker Witch at 2nd level that I can bring in.

Sovereign Court

About to leave for the day. I have less characters in tier than I remember. A melee mostly-alchemist at 5, Several 2s and 1s, mostly ranged. I was hoping to play a fresh medium 1 with a ghoran boon, but am not picky.


I've been itching to try my witch and having a ghoran to play with would be cool.

How 'bout low tier? I'll need to work the character's profile up but it will be worth it.

Scarab Sages

I will not deny my interest in seeing somebody actually play a Medium.

I've got plenty of 1st- and 2nd-level characters to choose from (including but not limited to an Arcanist, a Paladin, a Ranger, a Samurai, and even an aspiring Mystic Theurge), BUT I do also have a couple of level 3.2 characters (an Investigator, a Fighter, and a Spell Warrior) who are long overdue for reaching 4th. No reason I can't play between-Tiers, right (I believe I even still get commensurate treasure!)?

Sovereign Court

I'll likely go with the medium, then. Will put up character information when I finish them, and find a name I'm satisfied with (up to a day, though realistically I'll never fully like a name I come up with).

You can definitely play out of sub-tier as a 3rd if we're in tier 1-2. You'll get the out of sub-tier treasure reward...which isn't as good as if we were playing high tier but better than the low tier people will get.


Let me check the rewards sheet. It's errataed on the forums somewhere. I believe every player gets rewarded based on individual level. It's weird.

Oh...that's true...you would get out of subtier rewards, either way...assuming the tiers are 1-2 and 4-5.


Rewards are variable. Different characters will get different rewards based on their individual level. But the monsters are still low/high tiered, so it'd still be good to stay clustered in level.

The Concordance

Huh, I hadn't heard about that.

Here's my ghoran! While I will likely rebuild into Relic Channeler to maintain my sanity, for how they're without archetype. Mostly to check how viable it is. I'll try to keep that from affecting you much, GM. May also change my name up to a few times before hitting 10 posts, sorry.

Please choose quickly.

Okay...Medium, Witch, don't know what else...but sounds like a good occasion for this fellow to Find his way back to the Path:

Player Name: I'm Hiding In Your Closet
Character Name: Ekanta Hanoi
PFS #: 40025-15
Faction: Grand Lodge
Day Job: Craft (Boneworking): 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (19) + 10 = 29 If I don't use it otherwise before game's end, I will DEFINITELY want to apply my Faction Pin bonus to that! Alternatively, I have a Jade Wayfinder that casts guidance at will; if you'd be willing to let me apply that to Day Job rolls, then consider it a '30' with no need for the pin!
