It was August 2016, when I stepped into the Event Horizon Gaming store and sat down to play my first session of Pathfinder society. A couple months earlier, my nephews had asked about a tabletop rpg that they were playing at school with a teacher and some students. I said I think I know which one, and proceeded to buy beginner sets of D&D. When I produced it to them, they said that wasn't the game they were talking about. So I went back out to the gaming stores and picked up beginner boxes of Pathfinder, it was the only other option with a beginner box. This time I got it right and we were set to play a homebrew session in Greenville with the teacher as the GM. Now this went about as well as expected, and as homebrew games often do, only lasted a couple of sessions before people involved couldn't commit. They all may have been done, but I wasn't. In the beginner box was a leaflet talking about an online guild that kept track of characters and produced unique adventures for the so called Pathfinder Society. It said you didn't need a specific group of people, just bring yourself and a core rulebook, the other players would be there. So I went to the website it mentioned and followed all directions, read all the material, and made up my first character, the infamous -1 . I'm not sure how I was able to find a game at Event Horizon, I think it was a mix of Meetup.com pointing me to Warhorn.net. However I got there, I started my first adventure in the wonderful Pathfinder Society Online Roleplaying Guild. Now back then we only had one option to play, what is now referred to as 1st Edition. But for YOUR first steps you have three choices. Above is a rundown of each one, and from there you can continue to learn all about the society and what you'll need to do in order to play.
