Pathfinder Society Scenarios

Pathfinder Society Organized 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 scenarios (short, 4-hour adventures) set in a variety of exotic locations across Golarion. New scenarios are released each month.

Sanctioned Modules

In addition to the scenarios available for the various seasons of Pathfinder Society Organized Play, Game Masters can run their players through products from the Pathfinder Modules line. Chronicle sheets and additional rules for each module can be found as a pdf download on their product page.

Pathfinder Society: GM 101

GM 101 is a course that is divided into four lessons, each lasting approximately one hour. The document covers four basic topics that will allow for new GMs to ease into the role and feel more comfortable running a table for Pathfinder Society.

Pathfinder Society: GM 201

Now that you know the basics of running a game after completing Pathfinder Society: GM 101, it is time to delve deeper and examine the more delicate and complicated aspects of gamemastery: using subtlety to build atmosphere, adding extra depth to roleplaying encounters, making effective use of props, dealing with troublemakers, and building a positive roleplaying community. Participants should circulate between stations and practice what they learn with an updated Deck of Many Situations.

Pathfinder Society: Kid's Track

The Kid's Track covers the basics of roleplaying games, utilizing the Pathfinder RPG Beginner Box. Each lesson contained in the document is intended to aid a GM in teaching children what roleplaying games are and how to play using the Beginner Box rules.
