It is Arodus 5, 4716 AR. It has been 4 years since a small group of citizens from Sandpoint found themselves in the middle of a giant invasion into the lands of Varisia, lead by the returning runelord Karzoug. This group stopped the invasion from Storval Plateau, traveled to the long forgotten city of gold Xin-Shalast, and destroyed the runelord. They returned as heroes, but what became of those heroes after they saved Varisia is a story for another day.
Our story starts in the city of Absalom on the Isle of Kortos. It is widely considered the City at the Center of the World, and headquarters to the largest organization in the world, the Pathfinder Society. The Society dispatches their Agents all over the world, to explore, delve into, and otherwise experience the lesser-seen parts of Golarion. It is also here that new Initiates in the Society train to become Pathfinder Agents.
Today, we find a group of Initiates collected together awaiting their final trial.
Today, this is their Confirmation.
Today, this is beginning of your character’s story….
