Know Questions

Hi! Welcome to Know Direction’s Pathfinder Society Minute. This is the  Inland Empire of California’s Venture lieutenant Brian Darnell and I am here to answer you PFS questions. Back after a long break due to vacation and of course, Paizocon! I have a bunch of questions this segment so I’ll get started right away.

Today’s question comes from Venture Lieutenant of Fresno California Will Johnson.

Will says,  “Season 5 introduced secondary success conditions to Pathfinder Society, pre-season 5 scenarios use a document called the secondary success conditions document. This document is hard to find for some players, is there an easy way to find this document?”

Great question Will! You are right, the secondary successcondition document is hard to find. After going to and clicking on Pathfinder Society, I then have to click on the products link found near the lower-right hand corner of the page. On the products page I then click the free products link and scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the pathifnder Society Scondary Success Conditions document. I’m not done there as I have to click on it and add it to my downloads.

This is really complicated and will definitely result in a lot of people being unable to find it. To make it easier I made a short cut. Just go to A link to that will be included in the show notes

That’s it for today’s PFS Minute. If you need to contact me directy, feel free to e-mail me at or tag me on the Know Direction facebook page.

This is Venture Lieutenant Brian Darnell signing off, I hope to catch a game with you soon.
