Cheliax, Druma, and Ustalav are nexuses of occult activity in the Inner Sea region, which also makes them hotbeds of occult magic.[8] The Esoteric Order of the Palatine Eye specializes in occult studies,[9] and Kelesh incorporates occult calculations into its imperial rule.[10]

The Pathfinder Society's quest for knowledge is often compatible with occult studies, including occult magic.[11]
