We are about to start an Age or Ashes campaign, and one of my players is wanting to be an initiate in the Order of the Godclaw (They are lawful good).
The wiki pages indicate that their citadel was conquered recently in another adventure path. Can someone give me (I don’t mind any and all spoilers- I’m an eternal GM) or point me to a summary of the order’s current situation, particularly in Isger?
Additionally, one of my other players is looking at playing an escaped slave from Nidal, with an understandable hatred of the entirely legal practice of slavery. Thankfully we aren’t talking order of the chain. But if any of you have any suggestions on how I can help those two characters function together in Age of Ashes, that would be appreciated!
I believe that after the events of Hell's Vengeance, the Order of the Godclaw was wiped out.
Since you're okay with spoilers...
However, I can't imagine that the idea of the Godclaw (i.e. giving homage to the five lawful deities) is completely dead. I actually having a player in my campaign playing as a former Godclaw who managed to escape with his life and is currently on the run from his past.

But maybe your aspiring Hellknight was a squire to a full Hellknight who favored Torag or Iomedae and was on a mission outside of the country during the war of the Glorious Reclamation. When that Hellknight found out what the lictor had done during the war, he refused to return home and released that squire from his service.
Assuming that that squire has similar misgivings about his old order, he should get along with your other PC just fine. Of course, this backstory might conflict with your aspiring Hellknight PC's plans, so you and he might want to do a bit more research.
