Season 6 of the Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild campaign ran from August 2014 to July 2015. The season is referred to as the Year of the Sky Key due to the involvement of the Pathfinder Society in and around Numeria.

At the end of Season 5, national factions were retired and replaced by new ideal-based factions with the same leadership but new goals and traits:

The Grand Lodge and Silver Crusade factions remained unchanged.12

Metaplot and ongoing plots overview

The Year of the Sky Key badge.

The Pathfinder Society recovers part a strange artifact known as the Sky Key in the dwarven sky citadel Jormurdun, a prized relic recovered by the dwarves of Jormurdun after seeing it and other pieces of a mysterious starship plummet from the sky during the Rain of Stars. In 1600 AR when hryngars3 attacked and conquered the citadel its ruler, King Gutheran, broke the Sky Key into five pieces, keeping one piece for himself and giving one to each of his four heirs.

The Pathfinder Society takes on the task to find the remaining pieces and reunite them to reassemble the Sky Key in order to explore the true potential of the famous artifact. This search takes Pathfinders to locations across Golarion from the frozen plains of Irrisen to the steamy jungles of the Mwangi Expanse and the arid deserts of Osirion, eventually guiding Pathfinders to the heart of Numeria, where the starship fell and into even extraplanar adventures. 4
