somewhat less occult than the voidsingers or the hermetic order, our next society offers a playstyle more in keeping with diplomacy and espionage. If keeping city states in your clutches and holding sway over your allies’ secrets is more your jam, consider the owls of minerva.
the second of the secret societies is perhaps the oldest, born from the worship of a creature beyond time and space. the voidsingers offer great power to those who make a pact with the great old one, helpful in pursuing faith and unhinging the loyalty of those around your empire. bring the world to its knees for the arrival of the things from beyond the stars.
The introduction of secret societies with the ethiopia game pack has opened a well of opportunities for players to steer themselves towards their victory condition of choice. if knowledge is what you seek, consider the hermetic order.
