Some years ago, I was introduced to the Pathfinder Role Playing Game, and looked forward to meeting up with the gang every month to explore strange locations and battle evil things.

Fast-forward to spring of 2015 and our gaming group was no longer meeting and I was itching to do more adventuring, combat (both martial and social), and to just have a good old time rolling dice.  And so, I had a chat with the members of my old gaming party about whether they’d be up for organizing a group (whether the old one, or a new one), and got some bites from enough people that we could organize a group.  Only one problem.  Nobody was willing or able to Game Master for the group.

Hmmm….that’s a problem… or is it?

I found an Pathfinder Society Organized Play group that met weekly near my home, and started gaming with them, with the intent of learning how to run a game.

Not only have I met a lot of really great people, they’ve helped me improve as a player, while at the same time help me learn to the basics of being a Game Master.  I haven’t as of yet run a game for Pathfinder Society Organized Play, but this group is really my only opportunity to play as a player, but I pick up every tip and trick I can to improve my Game Mastering.

The timing couldn’t have been better.  The first game of my newly formed gaming group was quickly approaching June 20th 2015.
