Pathfinder Society Messageboards
The Pathfinder Society messageboards are a great way to interact with different players, GMs and volunteers in the community. Are you trying to find a Pathfinder Society group in your area? Maybe you're a GM looking for help? Join the conversation with other members of the Pathfinder Society!
Pathfinder Society Organized Play is one way to get involved in the world of Golarion. Scenarios can be played on a regular basis in game stores, but you can also find games at various conventions around the world. If you're interested in organizing Pathfinder Society events, whatever the venue, schedule it on our Events page!
A regional coordinator is a local or regional organizer and point of contact for Pathfinder Society Organized Play. Regional coordinators are called "venture-captains" after their counterparts in the Pathfinder Society Campaign. We are always looking for new volunteers to become regional coordinators. To find out what areas we're currently in need of coordinators for, please check out the Regional Coordinator page.

After your have submitted your Pathfinder Society Quest for consideration, please allow 72 hours for a response before resubmitting. Allow for more time on a holiday weekend (US bank holidays) or during or near major industry conventions.
We will read queries as quickly as possible and respond appropriately. Depending on submission volume and other factors, some submissions may wait several months in the review queue. If we receive one that meets our needs, we will likely give that author a contract and pay him or her for the adventure. If we receive one that we like or that shows potential but which isn’t quite there yet, we will likely ask that author to rewrite elements and resubmit for possible future publication. There is no guarantee at any point in this process that we will give you a contract and pay you for your work.
