Introduction to PFS in Gen Con?

Pathfinder Society

I've been curious to try out PFS for some time; are there going to be any "introductions" to the Society in Gen Con? I figure it's as good a place as any to start.

Well, there are plenty of low level adventures on the schedule, which are appropriate for level 1 characters. I'm not sure if they're doing the Beginner's Box Bash or anything like that.

Do you already know how to play the game and just new to Society, or are you a total Pathfinder newbie?

There is the (somewhat misnamed) Kids' Track as well, which is the Beginner Bash quests... this works really well as an introduction if you're totally new to RPGs.


I started playing PFS at Gen Con 2009. In fact it was my first ever organized game play. If you're not new to RPGs, just sign up for any tier 1-5 scenario and dive in!

Ok, I'll do that! I'm familiar with the system, I just don't have any groups to play with at the moment. Hopefully I can connect with my area VC (which admittedly is something I could've done in the past but I keep putting it off).


If you are comfortable enough with the system and rules I would do as Kyle says and just jump into a tier 1-5. You can also come play at one of my We Be Goblin tables! I give you a pregen Goblin and you get to act like an idiot and burn things to the ground. A fun Sunday morning had by all!

Yeah, definitely just dive in and play a session, or two or three or ten. I'll be GMing Assault on the Kingdom of the Impossible Friday morning, which is a great low level adventure.

You can either get a pregen to play when you get there, or make a level 1 character in advance, using the campaign rules in the Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized Play, which is a free download.
