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 Your Unique Number
Organized Play gives you a unique number to help you track your adventures. Getting your number is easy; just go to Paizo.com/organizedPlay
Click Create a Character and follow the prompts. 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 get started with Organized Play.

Take note of your number; you’ll give it to your GMs at the games you play to record the results of your sessions.
