Paizo Organized Play Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers, collectively known as Venture-Officers, receive ranks based on their duties and geographical areas of responsibility. The top level of volunteers, Regional Venture-Coordinators, looks after geographical areas. Under them are Venture-Captains, responsible for countries, states, or metropolitan areas. Their right hands, the Venture-Lieutenants, assist in the area’s coordination efforts, sometimes belonging to the region and other times being assigned to a city or town. The lowest level, Venture-Agents, coordinate activities in one location, such as a game store, a school, a community center, or a military installation.

Anyone may join the Organized Play Foundation as a volunteer. A list of recommended tasks and benefits for each level of Venture-Officer rank is available from the link below. If you read the Venture-Officer descriptions and are interested in joining the team, email the Regional Venture-Coordinator responsible for your location. Players looking for organized play activities in a particular area may either search the events listing on Warhorn or email the Regional Venture-Coordinator for the area of interest from the list linked below.

The OPF also coordinates Paizo Organized Play games at a number of large conventions each year. More information on how to volunteer for these events, as well as the rewards for volunteering, are listed below. Blocks are considered 4-5 hours each, depending on the convention. Contact the convention’s Organizing Committee Chair with any questions.
