The Pathfinder Society is a globe-spanning organization based out of Absalom, the world’s largest city. The membership consists primarily of Pathfinders, adventurers who travel throughout Golarion, usually inconspicuously, and explore, delve, and otherwise experience the lesser-seen parts of the world. They send journals back to their Venture-captain, who also assigns them new missions and suggests new places to explore. The most exciting and illuminating of these journals are compiled in the Pathfinder Chronicles, an ongoing series of books which collect the history and mystery of Golarion for their membership.
The Venture-captain of the Pathfinder Society in Daggermark is Malphas ‘Mal’ Memphisto, a cunning tiefling who retired from a criminal racket in Cheliax some 10 years ago to ‘see the world’ Mal doesn’t assign nearly as many quests as Venture-captains at other Pathfinder Lodges, but nonetheless the Daggermark branch still recovers valuable artifacts and information.
