What’s the best thing to put in a pocket if you’re on your way to a Pathfinder game? Probably one of these Ultimate Rulebooks that have been conveniently pocket-sized…
Two more pocket Pathfinder guides, all updated with the latest rules and erratas are out now in stores (and will be out later this month on PDF), which means that right now you can get your hands on the following. There’s the Ultimate Campaign guide, which is a resource for putting together both a campaign or an open world where players can go on quests or start their own business or farm. And if you want to add in a little more betrayal, there’s Ultimate Intrigue, which definitely isn’t what your players want in order to try and supplant the power behind the throne, why would you think that.
