In Organized Play, you are a member of an adventuring group, seeking fortune and glory. At the same time, your character works for one of several competing factions, all with their own motivations and secrets.
Get a Society Number
Organized Play assigns players a unique number that identifies them. This number is used to keep an online record of adventures played. Obtaining a number is easy: Ask your event coordinator for one, or simply go to Organized Play’s main site.
Click the “Pathfinder Society” link on the left-hand side of the screen. Click “Join the Pathfinder Society!” halfway down the page. If you do not have a paizo.com account, you will need to create one.
Once you’ve created a paizo.com account, you can create an Organized Play account. (Use the same number for Pathfinder Society, Pathfinder Card Game, and Starfinder Society play.) If you have a number and confirmation code (from a slip provided by a coordinator), choose the option for those who have already obtained a number. If not, then choose the option for those who need a number. Fill in a few simple questions, and you will be taken to your Pathfinder Society page. There should be your Pathfinder number in the middle of the screen. Take note of this number, as you’ll need it to provide it to GMs to record your sessions! You can always get to this page again by signing into your paizo.com account, clicking the “Pathfinder Society” logo, and choosing “My Pathfinder Society” from the gray bar near the top of the page.
Download the Guide
Paizo has a free guide to Organized Play. When logged into your paizo.com account, go to the “Pathfinder Society” logo, and then click “Player Resources” in the sidebar on the right. This page has links to several items you will find useful to have at your disposal. Click on the product page for the guide, where you can choose “Add to Downloads” below the “Our Price: FREE” text. Your paizo.com account keeps a list of PDF files that you have gotten from them, and will notify you via e-mail if one of them gets updated.
To access your Downloads, click the “My Downloads” link at the very top of the page. This will take you to your list of downloadable items. Click the link for the Guide to open or save the file.
