TL;DR -- I prefer more story continuity in my APs. This is my way of adding it in.
Sounds wonderful! Pathfinder groups are absolutely valid choices. I resisted "plugging" the PFS more because of the pushback from Shattered Star (where, rightly or wrongly, some groups chafed at being forced to be allied with the PFS).
I personally love the idea of the Society and I applaud your approach. There's NOTHING wrong with adjusting any AP to the taste of you and your players. Its the sign of a good GM.
There's a delicate balance to be struck between structuring the campaign too much and leaving it so open and flexible that it lacks something in terms of a campaign. This one doesn't start with a strong, driving agenda because its trying to set the stage. Some folks aren't sure what to think and some are resistant. I'll be curious to see how they feel by Book 3 or 4, and whether their opinions change at all.
Thanks for the comments!
