What is the Pathfinder Society?
From the Pathfinder Society Page
Pathfinder Society Organized Play is a worldwide fantasy roleplaying campaign that puts YOU in the role of an agent of the Pathfinder Society, a legendary league of explorers, archaeologists, and adventurers dedicated to discovering and chronicling the greatest mysteries and wonders of an ancient world beset by magic and evil.
The campaign’s home base is sprawling Absalom, the so-called City at the Center of the World, that stands astride the great Inner Sea on the mountain-capped Isle of Kortos. A Pathfinder’s adventures explore the dark alleys and political intrigue of Absalom between far-flung travels to the most interesting and exotic locales in the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
In Pathfinder Society Organized Play, you play a member of the Pathfinder Society, seeking fortune and glory all over the face of Golarion. At the same time, your character works for one of the competing factions, all with their own motivations and secret agendas.
Play is organized into Seasons, throughout which the actions and achievements of you and your fellow Pathfinders create an ongoing storyline. Each season consists of at least 28 Pathfinder Society scenarios (short, 4-hour adventures) set in a variety of exotic locations across Golarion.
For more info on the PFS check out their web page here, Also from that page you can download the Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized Play. I suggest you download that and read it over to learn the rules on character creation and other things about Org Play.
Some other useful Pathfinder Society links and downloads
- Additional Resources – A specific list of Paizo Publishing products and the equipment, traits, deities, spells, feats, and classes contained within that are legal for play in Pathfinder Society Organized Play. While most of the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook is legal for play (with some feat and spell exceptions), these additional resources give you new character options. If a product does not appear on this list, then it is not considered legal for play.

As soon as you can please join and register into the Pathfinder organization so you can get credit for the scenarios you play in. Both can be done from the link above. Please bring your Pathfinder Society Org number to the game.
A great source for information on the world of the Pathfinder Society, Golarion, can be found on the Pathfinder Wiki. The Pathfinder Wiki is a fan run page that adds all the info from the RPG books from Paizo that deal with Golarion. It is a great resource for making a deep background story for your character and to help with roleplaying in the game, Which we are hoping to get out of you all, our goal not to be running a Combat Mini game, but an interactive roleplaying game.
Some of you may not be familiar with the Pathfinder Roleplaying game, the Paizo rules based on D&D 3.5., the best way of course to become familiar with the rules is to buy the book, or the PDF (which is only $9.99!), but a good resource to learn the rules is the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Reference Document, which is free full rules on the Paizo web page.
So other useful resources are:
- d20 Pathfinder SRD
- Archives of Nethys
- Hero Lab Character Creation Program – Official Sponsored Character Creator, also includes Character Generation for PFS characters. The program costs $30 which includes any one Data set of your choice. The program also supports Mutants & Masterminds Core System, d20 System SRD, Call of Cthulhu, World of Darkness Core (Including Vampire and Changeling), Cortex System and an Authoring kit which includes Savage Worlds and 4th Edition mechanics. Each additional data set costs $20. I own the program so if you want to use it but don’t want to buy it you can come on over to my place. You can try the program out for free and download the demo from their site
Looking forward to game with the players we have and the new players to come!
