In our April 16th blog, we announced the Battle of the Pantheons contest, run in conjunction with folks at the Know Direction Network. On June 11th, we revealed the four finalists and opened voting to members of the community. Now, it is time to announce the winner and sanction the new Pantheon for use in the Pathfinder Society organized play program.
The winner was The Path of the Heavens Pantheon by Conor Young!

The Path of the Heavens is well known to those who make their way in Golarion. Looking down from above, these deities help travelers and voyagers find their path. Their guidance can be literal, or for others, more spiritual—some worshippers seek to know the progress of Sarenrae (the sun), Tsukiyo (the moon), and Desna (the stars) and through this knowledge gain enlightenment. Nocticula, the last member of the pantheon, for her part uses the cover of the darkness, the gaps in between the others, to shelter travelers and outcasts. Some who worship her as their primary deity in the pantheon seek to use the void between the stars to defend voyagers on the road. Though this is frowned upon by the other members of the Path of the Heavens, it does not seem to disrupt the harmony between the gods.
Watch the Know Direction Network for an announcement on their upcoming interview with Conor as well as follow up pieces on putting the contest together! You can find all this and more things Paizo on the Know Direction Network.
Until next time—Explore, Report, Cooperate!
