PFS StandardCosmic Caravan [NG]

Source Travel Guide pg. 92, Abomination Vaults Player's Guide pg. 5
PFS Note The Cosmic Caravan pantheon is legal for play using Tsukiyo instead of Groetus. Groetus was listed as a member of the pantheon in a different source, but is not treated as a current member of the pantheon in the Pathfinder Society campaign.

A pantheon rapidly gaining popularity throughout the Inner Sea is the Cosmic Caravan. Astronomers and astrologers will tell you the Cosmic Caravan is a collection of constellations visible in the night sky, said to travel forever in a circle around the star Cynosure. The association of a diverse array of deities and demigods linked to the stars—and the spaces between them—first rose to prominence in western Avistan, particularly in Varisia, Nidal, and Ravounel. The deities worshipped by the faithful are a heady and diverse group that shows the true depth of understanding of this pantheon: Desna and Sarenrae; the empyreal lords Ashava, Black Butterfly, and Pulura; the elven god Ketephys; and the outer god Yog-Sothoth. Their religious observances take place at night and center around stargazing. While Groetus served as the moon in the original pantheon, the god's treatment of spreading hope as anathema has caused many to swap in the Tian deity Tsukiyo in regions where he's known.

If your travels take you through Nidal, you'll find this pantheon has been gaining ground there against the worship of Zon-Kuthon, whose faithful feel they own the worship of the night. A rising number of Cosmic Caravan worshippers in that nation seek to oppose or, one day, even overthrow the Midnight Lord's theocracy to reclaim the night from the implications that all who dwell in the dark are evil.
