Season 6 of the Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign runs from August 2014–July 2015. The season is generally referred to as the Year of the Sky Key due to the involvement of the Pathfinder Society in and around Numeria. In the UK, the first of these adventures ran at ShadowCon, at the end of August 2014. You have plenty of time to catch up.
At the end of Season 5, national factions were retired and replaced by new ideal-based factions with the same leadership but new goals and traits:
Andoran's vanities and boons remain available to the new Liberty's Edge faction.
Cheliax's vanities and boons remain available to the new Dark Archive faction.
Osirion's vanities and boons remain available to the new Scarab Sages faction.
Qadira's vanities and boons remain available to The Exchange, a new faction that includes elements of the retired Sczarni faction. However, Sczarni vanities and boons can no longer be gained or purchased without a boon that states otherwise.
Taldor's vanities and boons remain available to the new Sovereign Court faction.
The Grand Lodge and Silver Crusade factions remained unchanged.
With the change of most factions from nation-based to ideal-based at the start of Season 6, every character is allowed one free faction change anytime during Season 6.
You were brilliant – one and all! We worked a few changes this year and it was our most successful PaizoCon UK so far. More people than ever before played in the SPECIAL. Our Friday Night Grand Convocation candlelit banquet was a spooky event in an old masonic lodge and the ghost walk was steeped in tales of dark deeds and bloody murder. We welcomed so many lovely people from Canada, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Netherlands, Scotland, Singapore, Switzerland and USA. Please come again and bring all your friends. We were so grateful to our GMs. Please keep volunteering. You were awesome. Our Special Guests were absolute stars!
At Leisure Games in North London two tables of "Risen from the Sands" ran in parallel all through FREE RPG day. The traps and curses of an ancient Osirion pharaoh left one party with a single survivor and another party rich but riddled with mummy rot. This was a tough one but everyone seemed to have fun. The team at Leisure Games made everyone welcome and even joined in on the bloody slaughter of tomb raiders.
