Review – Pathfinder Chronicles – Seeker of Secrets
Well here I am, back again for another review of Pathfinder products. This time I have the pleasure of reviewing a smaller product. An issue of the Chronicle series called “Seeker of Secrets”.

Hero System Fans,
Do you have the Hero System 6th Edition?
