Pathfinder (PF) versus Pathfinder Society (PFS)

Postby LegacyKing » Sat May 16, 2015 7:05 pm

ATTENTION PATHFINDER USERS:
There are two Different Game Systems for Pathfinder.

Pathfinder (the normal game system) and Pathfinder Society (PFS)

If you are using the Pathfinder Society Rules (PFS) then please realize you are actually LIMITING your options to what the Pathfinder Society ALLOWS. This is a very restricted game play option for players that participate in the Global Pathfinder Society game. You should ONLY use these rules if you are interested in making and playing with an authorized Pathfinder Gamemaster who runs specific authorized PFS adventure modules, and you have your Society Player ID along with your log. Otherwise, please do not use that mode, since you'll be sending in FALSE bug reports about MISSING options.

If you want the FULL pathfinder game play experience without restrictions, please avoid using the Pathfinder Society rules.

Loading any of the following sets will include the PFS Rules:
  • Pathfinder Society Complete
  • Pathfinder Society Core Assumption
  • Guide To Pathfinder Society Organized Play

If you find yourself missing feats that are common, or something seems off, please verify you are not loading one of the above sets first before posting an issue.

Cheers,

One way is to add it in your bio section. Then keep track of purchases and additions by date and session.

I've also noticed that Humans of Golarion isn't included in the Pathfinder Society Complete Rules source.

If it's not included, then it hasn't been vetted. You can add any additional Paizo books, but be warned, you need to police yourself on what is allowed.
