Pathfinder Society

Fellow Pathfinders,

Join us for three days of adventure at Unicon!

Pathfinder Society is an organised play campaign enjoyed by thousands of gamers worldwide who regularly meet to enjoy the game in their homes, in game stores, and at game conventions such as Conquest and Unicon.

You play an agent of the Pathfinder Society, a legendary league of explorers, archeologists, and adventurers dedicated to discovering and chronicling the greatest mysteries and wonders of an ancient world beset by magic and monsters. The campaign's home base is sprawling Absalom, the so-called City at the Center of the World. A Pathfinder explores the dark alleys and political intrigues of Absalom between far-flung travels to the most interesting and exotic locales in the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Each Pathfinder Society game sends your character on a brief mission, a single episode in a continuing story. For every three scenarios played, your character gains a new level, and you can progress your character over the course of many Pathfinder Society adventures held at different conventions and events run throughout the year.

Each Pathfinder Society game plays for 5 hours duration, and therefore requires two standard Unicon sessions to play. The multi-table Special is expected to run longer, and therefore requires three standard Unicon sessions to play. Please refer to the timetable below for Pathfinder session times:

  • Friday PM Sessions R+A: 6pm - 11pm
  • Saturday AM Sessions B+C: 9:00am - 3:30pm
  • Saturday PM Sessions D+E: 4:00pm - 11:00pm
  • Sunday Special Event Sessions F+G+H: 9:00am - 7:00pm

IMPORTANT:

Pre-register your Unicon Session on AON, then reserve your Pathfinder Society tables on Warhorn.

You may join the Pathfinder Society without any prior game experience by playing one of 14 pre-generated characters.

Most Pathfinder sourcebooks contain options you may use for your character, including new classes, archetypes, feats, traits, equipment, spells etc. If using a rule from a source outside the Core Rulebook, you must have a legal copy of that book with you at the table for the GM to refer to, and it must be listed as allowed on the Additional Resources page, otherwise your character won't be permitted to use that class, feat, spell etc during play.

Useful Resources:

You may continue your character's daring adventures at Pathfinder Society gamedays held every week at locations in Melbourne City, Box Hill, Dandenong, Footscray, Geelong and Ringwood.

If you have any questions about character options or Pathfinder Society events, please don't hesitate to contact myself or Jena or join the discussions on the Pathfinder Society messageboards.
