With Gen Con poised to unleash the Pathfinder 2.0 playtest upon the world, Paizo has a book lined up to take you to the far corners of Golarion.
Take a walk to the fringes of Golarion. I’m excited for this book–it takes the focus away from the Inner Sea region, instead guving players archetypes that tie them to non-human races from the distant reaches of the world. This is one of the first few books out after the Pathfinder Playtest. Not sure if the book will incorporate the new rules, or if it will be one of the last few books under old Pathfinder–either way, there are some excellent ideas explored here, so be sure and check it out.
Delve into the many non-human societies found outside of the Inner Sea region! From elves to gnomes to halflings to dwarves, Pathfinder Player Companion: Heroes from the Fringe offers new options to expand upon non-human characters who come from lesser-known civilizations and backgrounds. Find the right archetype, feats, alternate racial traits, and equipment to reflect your character’s heritage, whether she’s a graceful elven samurai from Jinin or one of the festive gnomes and halflings of Segada!
Inside this book you’ll find:
- Character options for unique cultural groups of major non-human peoples of Golarion, including Osirion’s Pahmet dwarves, the Ekujae elves of the Mwangi Expanse, and gnomes who never left the First World!
- Feats for half-orcs and half-elves who hail from different parts of the world, from unyielding half-drow who escaped their murderous kin to vivacious sandkin half-orcs who view themselves as Sarenrae’s chosen people!
- New occult choices spawned from unusual backgrounds, such as whimsical phantoms formed from the lost wonder of gnomes who fell to the Bleaching and a terrifying psychic archetype for gloomkin half-orcs!
