The world of Golarion is full of mystery, so adventurers, maybe Pathfinders, are tasked to solve them and the Game Master has the answers to reveal the truth within the canon of the campaign. Some elements of the Pathfinder campaign setting, though, are defined by Paizo Publishing as mysteries that will not be revealed to the public and this page documents them:
