What is the Pathfinder Society?
From the Pathfinder Society Page
On Golarion, the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, 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. 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 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.
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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
