I’m now back in Spokane, WA, and working at The Comic Book Shop in town. My first order of business? Getting our gaming section up to par. With that, I’ve started scheduling weekly “learn-to-play” events. The first week was a failure, as I had exactly zero people show up to play Robo Rally. Boo.
However, this weekend, I’m teaching people how to play Pathfinder, using the Beginner Box. I’m excited to show people how the game plays. If you’re in Spokane, WA, show up at 2PM to the Comic Book Shop in Northtown Mall to play.
Next month, I’m going to be kicking off Pathfinder Society at the store. I’ll be running the first introductory games, and am really wanting to get more people involved so that I can have multiple GMs running diverse games.
I had some initial confusion as to how to manage a Pathfinder Society group, so I’m going to present all the information here for anyone interested in doing the same.
What is Pathfinder Society? To quote Paizo’s site:
“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.”
Here’s the Adventure I’ll be running, as well as the rules for Organized Play and how it’s different than home campaigns. You’ll need to get a Paizo account to get a Pathfinder Society number, and from there, you’ll be able to register games here. They have a step-by-step download that you can get here.
I hope this helps. I’ll keep you all updated as to the progress of the games, and I welcome any of you who are in Spokane to come by and play!
