The Pathfinder Society - apart from being an organisation of explorers in the campaign world of Golarion - is the 'shared campaign' devised by Paizo Publishing to support their development of the Pathfinder RPG and provide further enjoyment of the Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting. Launched at GenCon US in August 2008, adventures can be played at conventions or in home groups, with feedback going to develop the world and enable characters to advance, and to be played anywhere.
The first year, August 2008 to August 2009, was Season 0 of the campaign, and was regarded as a playtest of the system. It used the Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 ruleset, and switched to Paizo's own Pathfinder RPG when the final version was published in the summer of 2009.
