Hail and Well Met Pathfinders!
Pathfinder Second Edition, Starfinder Second Season... September is a time of seconds I guess! Sorry, bad pun. Please give me a second chance!
Anyway, school is back in full swing and we may see a slight change in our attendance because of it so be aware and please post your requests to GM or play as soon as possible so I can better plan for our new attendance levels.

I will continue to schedule first edition (classic) PFS as well as our SFS Thursdays and I will introduce more second edition (PFS2E) games as demand and GM's are available.
As always, I have tried to incorporate as many requests as possible and if you want to see something changed, just ask!

The occasional unexplained disappearance is common enough in Ustalav, yet a rash of unexplained abductions has led to fearful speculation on the verge of panic in the streets. Hoping to improve the Pathfinder Society’s reputation in Ustalav, Venture-Captain Basia Kalistoff has offered her lodge’s services in putting an end to this crime wave. But in a city where countless terrors haunt its underworld and institutions, can the PCs unveil the true culprit without unleashing an even darker fate on Karcau?

A simple retrieval mission takes an unexpected turn when the Pathfinder Society learns a valuable treasure was under its nose—within the curious demiplane connected to the Hao Jin Tapestry. The descendants of the original owners have changed in the centuries since their sequestration, though, and initial attempts to parley have ended in failure. Can the PCs discover what became of this lost people and secure the relic they guard?
01-39 Citadel of Flame Tier 1-5 GM: Mark H.
Once the home to a cult preaching self-sacrifice by immolation in order to achieve paradise, the Citadel of Flame in Qadira's Meraz Desert was presumably wiped out decades ago after Sarenrae dervishes led a crusade to end its morbid message. An enormous sandstorm swallowed both the citadel and the army attacking it, burying both beneath hundreds of feet of sand. Thought lost forever, the citadel's rediscovery prompts the Pathfinder Society to send you deep in the unforgiving Meraz to finally close the book on Qadira's most mysterious cult.
05-24 Assault on the Wound Tier 3-7 GM: Roy
The Pathfinder Society embarks on its expedition to the lost Sky Citadel Jormurdun with a small army of allies in tow, but they are not the only ones seeking the dwarven fortress.

If the campaign is to succeed, the Society’s forces will need bold leadership. Can the PCs lead their motley army to victory deep in the Worldwound?
PF2E 01-02 The Mosquito Witch Tier 1-4 GM: Richard
Decades ago, witnesses reported a fearsome cryptid outside of the quiet River Kingdoms town of Shimmerford.

The PCs travel to Shimmerford to unravel the cryptid mystery, but might they just become the witch's next victim?

05-09 The Traitor's Lodge Tier 3-7 GM: Mark H.
During the recent attack on Nerosyan, Pathfinders sought out a local venture-captain to aid in the city’s defense. What they found instead suggested the leader had not only fled recently but had played a part in the demons’ offensive.

08-25 Unleashing the Untouchable Tier 12-15 GM: Richard
The Pathfinder Society has secured the tools and uncovered the secret to shattering the Untouchable Opal and liberating the demigod within. All the Pathfinders lack is an impossibly hot flame—one that can match the searing hatred of Ymeri herself. The Society's best bet is Kandirion's Pyre, a supernatural forge situated where the elemental planes of earth and fire relentlessly batter each other. Freeing a demigod could send ripples through the multiverse and attract the attention of powerful creatures. Only the greatest agents stand a chance of breaking the Opal and surviving.
02-05 Eyes of the Ten - Part III: Red Revolution Tier 12 GM: Randy
You and your fellow Pathfinders are hot on the trail of the traitor to the Pathfinder Society as Venture-Captain Eliza Petulengro once again sends you into the Maze of the Open Road to track the traitors' co-conspirators. Stepping through a portal, you find yourself on the cold, red desert planet Akiton, fourth planet from the sun and Golarion's outward neighbor. You arrive in the midst of revolution, however, and are quickly embroiled in the politics of a new world. Can you survive the frigid, violent revolution of the alien Akiton and put an end to the Society's traitor once and for all?

After a year of searching and risking life and limb, the agents of the Pathfinder Society have discovered the resting place of the Runelord of Sloth, who has been sequestered from the world at large for 10,000 years awaiting the proper time for his return. Thanks to the efforts of the sinister cult of Lissala, that time is now. In a desperate attempt to defeat this ancient evil once and for all, the Decemvirate sends its best agents, armed with relics found throughout ancient Thassilon, to foil the cult's last-ditch efforts to usher in a new era of tyranny and strife. Will the party succeed in preventing Krune's return to Golarion, or will the Pathfinder Society serve simply as a speed-bump in the runelord's path to domination over the entire region?

Every hour behind enemy lines increases the chance a nearby army learns of the PCs' mission.

SFS AP-13 Fire Starters (Dawn of Flame 1 of 6) Tier 1 GM: James
It Takes One Spark
A magical portal to the Plane of Fire disappears into the sun just after something exits it for the first time in recorded history. An overwhelming telepathic burst from within the star quickly follows, and a scientist recruits the heroes to help her find out what’s going on. The mission takes the heroes to a lashunta enclave called Asanatown in the Burning Archipelago, a bubble-city in the sun’s atmosphere, to meet with another scientist who can help. Before that meeting can happen, however, the psychic disturbance leads radicals among the telepathically sensitive lashuntas to take matters into their own hands, closing Asanatown off from the rest of the sun-based city. Trapped, the heroes must rescue their contact and return power to the proper authorities to escape!

Reaching out with strange abominations of the deep to siphon the souls of the stubborn populace, the lake hopes to release a powerful fiend bound centuries earlier by Arodenite clerics.
