Lack of games and commitment plague the system a bit more than they usually do other systems (which is saying much!) but, personally coming out of a rocking PFS game recently (courtesy of Chemalle) I have seen first hand that the structure, pacing and overall way to play a PFS game is excellent for PbP as opposed to the long winded AP arcs from paizo - they are just too long to do effectively, save for a strongly dedicated group.
Ghardi came up with the idea to create here our own PFS boards and invite fellow DMs/GMs to pitch in and get some Pathfinder games rolling in a somewhat centralized way, to spread the word and induct newcomers or just to grant the gaming fix to those that like Pathfinder
About PFS Organized play [Official link]
On Golarion, the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, the Pathfinder Society is an organization of explorers, vagabonds, sages, and treasure hunters determined to plumb the depths of the darkest tombs, and collect relics and lore from bygone ages. Every member shares one common dream: to contribute to the Pathfinder Chronicles, printed editions of secret lore coveted by the Society wherein only the most impressive finds and bravest exploits of the Pathfinders are immortalized.
Pathfinders are a diverse bunch of scoundrels and wanderers. Their loyalties lie on all shores of the Inner Sea, and beyond their adventures as Pathfinders, they often find themselves mixed up in the murky politics of Absalom and the five nations who seek to control the City at the Center of the World from behind the scenes. The campaign centers on the sprawling city of Absalom, where five factions engage in a shadow war for control of the city's politics and economy.
In Pathfinder Society Organized Play, you play a member of the Pathfinder Society, seeking fortune and glory all over the face of Golarion. At the same time, your character works for one of the five competing nation-based factions, all with their own motivations and secret agendas.
Pathfinder Society Organized Play is a constantly evolving mega-campaign played by thousands of players and the adventures you experience are shared by players around the world. Play is organized into Seasons, throughout which the actions and achievements of you and your fellow Pathfinders create an ongoing storyline. Each season consists of at least 28 Pathfinder Society scenarios (short, 4-hour adventures) set in a variety of exotic locations across Golarion.
In a nutshell (or how I see it ) PFS play are a series of short adventures that make it easy for different players to game with different GMs, as rules for creation and play are streamlined to be modular an easy for anyone to pick up, being players getting into a new game or a GM picking up a new group.
I've rambled to much by myself, the objective here it to see who is willing to participate, both as GMs and/or players; and to pitch ideas on how to get this off the ground.
