Pathfinder Society Organized Play

Original Thread

Welcome to Pathfinder Society Organized Play!On Golarion, the world of the Pathfinder Chronicles campaign setting, the Pathfinder Society is an organization of explorers, vagabonds, sages, and treasure hunters determined to plumb the depths of the darkest tombs, and collect relics and lore from bygone ages. They travel the world braving traps, monsters, assassins, dangerous natives, and worse, all in order to preserve the secrets of the past and to advance understanding of Golarion's many cultures. Some Pathfinders are dedicated explorers who risk life and limb in the pursuit of ancient lore, or lost historical relics. Just as many Pathfinders are little more than feckless mercenaries, glory hound adventurers, and gold hungry tomb raiders. Regardless of their intentions, every member shares one common dream: to contribute to the Pathfinder Chronicles, printed editions of secret lore coveted by the Society wherein only the most impressive finds and bravest exploits of the Pathfinders are immortalized. Pathfinders also follow a loose code that governs their actions: Explore, Report, and Cooperate.

Pathfinders are a diverse bunch of scoundrels and wanderers. Their loyalties lie on all shores of the Inner Sea, and beyond their adventures as Pathfinders, they often find themselves mixed up in the murky politics of Absalom and the five nations who seek to control the City at the Center of the World from behind the scenes. The campaign centers on the sprawling city of Absalom, where five factions engage in a shadow war for control of the city's politics and economy (more on Factions in Chapter 3.) As you play, the outcome of your adventures, your actions, and your deeds affect events on a global scale turning the tide of secret wars between some of Golarion's most powerful nations.

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 five competing nation-based factions, all with their own motivations and secret agendas.

Pathfinder Society Organized Play is a constantly evolving mega-campaign played by thousands of players and the adventures you experience are shared by players around the world.

(from paizo.com's Pathfinder Society page)



The basic gist of thingsThis is the continuation of my previous interest check thread! I'm back from the convention, have some definite experience with PFS, and now am willing to go ahead with this.

Pathfinder Society is a living campaign, not unlike Living Greyhawk, Living Forgotten Realms, Living Arcanis, Heroes of Rokugan: Champions of the Sapphire Throne, and so on and so forth. You play short modules that are designed for convention play, achieving prestige points and advancing your faction's standing in the shadow war of Absalom. For more information, please look at the Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized Play pdf. It's free, though you'll have to make a Paizo account to download it.

PFS requires you to fill in Chronicles, which basically track everything you've done in a scenario. You'll be required to print out these and fill in certain parts for yourself, and a degree of trust is required here. Similarly, you'll need a Pathfinder number, which can be obtained with a Paizo account here.

If you wish to play in this game, you MUST be active. I would hope for a post a day, if not more. They are short games, and judging by the interest thread there are plenty of people that would like to be in on them... but I can't run too many at once at risk of overwhelming myself. So, the faster we can get through things, the more people that can play, and the more modules you'll be able to experience!

On that note... I would be pretty happy to pick up any Co-DMs that were interested! Very very happy indeed.

If you have any questions about Pathfinder Society, the Golarion campaign setting, or even the Pathfinder RPG itself, please fire away!




If you are a new/interested player who did not post on the original ad thread, please post here first with your interest to play. Include your character's level, class and faction. Please note that you may or may not be able to join a game right away, but you're welcome to join a waiting list.

I believe you posted in the interest thread, but oh well. :P

Go ahead and make a character. 12 people put their names down in the app thread, but if you're quick you can sneak in ahead. It's possible that I'll do 3 games at once, anyway.

Ok, a bit sluggish on the character / application side of things, but I'm really looking forward to this. Besides, I need to play through the Season 1 scenarios quickly so I can DM them all.

My Pathfinder # is 10595 and character 10595-1 is Render Kane, Fighter 1, Cheliax.

Another rogue! Please get your char sheet up ASAP. I can slot you in to the recently started game; just pretend you've been pretty quiet all along or something.

3 rogues, a cleric, a paladin and a sorcerer walked into a bar...

Question about personnel

I haven't seen the cleric post yet in the Shipyard thread. Is he online with us or will he be coming in shortly? ***Never mind. He's here!***

I've decided to make the elf a bard, very similar concept, but a little magic to replace the lock picking. Dilruba. I'm still to purchase equipment for her.

She's a use-it-all magic-user, her UMD checks are high so she can pick up scrolls, wands and give them a go. When she is not casting, she is performing her dervish dance routine, or singing folk songs (or both). She tends to do so in combat as well, dancing among opponents, distracting them and avoiding their strikes. Her dervish dancing she picked up in a Qadria dervish lodge.

Oh nice!

Please post your character in the Characters thread when you're done.

Just as a note, you've spent too many points on stats. -2 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 2 + 10 = 25; point buy in Pathfinder Society is 20. You'll be joining the 3rd group doing The Devil We Know Part 1 (unless you have a problem with this, in which case... er... well you might be waiting a while for another game...)

It'll probably be a long wait before I can fit you in, but if you're willing to be patient, welcome aboard!

I've never played PF or PFS before, but I've played every other version of D&D. I'd like to try it out if you find any room.
