This product does exactly what it's supposed to. I've been playing society for a year now and I still reference this document nearly every session, both as a GM and player. If you're interested in Pathfinder Society Organized Play, start here!

2 pages!!!

It loads with one 2 pages so one it's fixed I'll change it

Exactly as Promised


This document does exactly what is it supposed to, introduce you to the organized play world. It references all the other aspects for Pathfinder, and is clear, concise and easy to read. If you read it and still have questions, then it has done it's job, to get you to dive completely into the whole PAthfinder universe.

Why this system in better in their own words.


A friend pointed out this paragraph to me and I think in a nutshell this is what makes Pathfinder such an excellent RPG system.

"Reward Creative Solutions: (pg26-27)

Sometimes during the course of a scenario, your players might surprise you with a creative solution to an encounter (or the entire scenario) that you didn’t see coming and that isn’t expressly covered in the scenario. If, for example, your players manage to roleplay their way through a combat and successfully accomplish the goal of that encounter without killing the antagonist, do not punish the PCs for their creativity. If that scene specifically calls for the PCs to receive gold piece rewards based on the gear collected from the combatants, instead allow the PCs to find a chest of gold (or something similar) that gives them the same rewards. Additionally, if they roleplayed past a bad guy who carries a specific potion or scroll they might be able to later purchase off their chronicle sheet, don’t cross that item off the sheet— instead, allow them to find it elsewhere as a reward for creatively solving the encounter without resorting to combat. Pathfinder Society Organized Play never wants to give the impression that the only way to solve a problem is to kill it—rewarding the creative use of skills and roleplay not only makes Society games that much more fun for the players, but it gives you, the GM, a level of flexibility in ensuring your players receive the rewards they are due."

What's with the background!!!

I know to some it may look cute, but it is going to burn A Ton of ink. This is completly unnecessary IMO for the doc. as the changes are mostly to accomodate the new classes.
This should have come out as a supplement not a rewrite.
