I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment What's the likely law enforcement response to my PCs in Nidal?
@MatthewNajmon good points. Though Nidal is pretty much all about torture, shadowcallers are dedicated to a god of torture and go to torture school and torture torture torture, so I think they'd get the job done (unless he kills himself rather than be taken alive, which is possible). With Bryan's blood transcription angle, if they found the battle site they could probably take 20 on a search to find at least a drop...

The novel Nightglass is about a shadowcaller, they didn't have anything like permanent telepathic bonds but are amazed by a Chelaxian long-range magical communication device. They do have whispering wind but it can only check in when within say 7 miles of somewhere... They do have scrying objects everywhere in towns and such, which is the most likely frequent check-in method.

I'm not sure this question really qualifies for "rules-as-written," it's not strict, but it is Pathfinder and wants a specifically Pathfinder/Golarion compatible solution - normally those two tags should be enough.
