Pathfinder Society Names Regional Coordinators

13 Venture–Captains Help Bring Pathfinder to the World

Paizo Publishing announced today that 13 Regional Coordinators from around the globe have been brought on board to help coordinate Pathfinder Society events. Regional Coordinators, known as Venture-Captains, will oversee specific locations and serve as local organizers and points of contact for members of the Pathfinder Society, the organized play arm for the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

"Venture-Captains are a vital component in our Organized Play structure," said Hyrum Savage, Marketing and Organized Play Manager for Paizo Publishing. "With this new structure it will be easier than ever for players to find local games and get playing right away. We’ve named 13 individuals now, but have plans for many more in the coming months."

Each of the Venture-Captains will be the local focus for the Pathfinder Society, helping coordinate games, find local game masters, help local retail stores set up Pathfinder Society events, and get people excited about Pathfinder and other Paizo products. If you are a player or retail store manager that is interested in the Pathfinder Society, please email the Venture-Captain closest to your area for more information and instructions on how you can join. If your local area is not currently represented by a Venture-Captain please email Paizo at
