Pathfinder: People of the Wastes

2 Minute Read
Nov 12 2017

This new sourcebook from Paizo doesn’t want to set the world on fire. It just wants to start a flame in your heart.

The Wastes of Golarion are well deadly, filled as they are with magical mutants and myriad monsters. And they’re as varied as they are deadly. You’ve got Mana Wastes, the Sodden Lands, the Fangwood, the Worldwound–basically pick your flavor of desolate, apocalyptic terrain. You can find it on Golarion. And if you can find it on Golarion, odds are real good that at least one of your players wants to build their latest and broken greatest character around that cool idea. So check out the People of the Wastes book and prepare for your players to tromp around in one sleeved leather jerkins.

Pathfinder Player Companion: People of the Wastes

Dead Trees Give No Shelter

Life might be scarce in the barren corners of Golarion, but Pathfinder Player Companion: People of the Wastes provides all the tools you need to become a master of wasteland domains. Whether your character is roaming the magic-singed lands of the Mana Wastes, the flooded fields of the Sodden Lands, the blighted depths of the Fangwood, or the demonic wilds of the Worldwound, this book offers advice, class options, and gear that allow her to survive and thrive where no hero ever should. Find the perfect trait for your wasteland-born character, or just the right archetype, feats, or spells to reflect her training in a harsh locale.

Inside this book you’ll find:

  • Class features, feats, and items that interact with primal magic, including the primal shaman, who can commune with the unstable spirits that linger where primal magic reigns.
  • A host of new firearms and gun-toting archetypes for characters who hail from the Grand Duchy of Alkenstar, including the gun chemist alchemist and the gun smuggler rogue.
  • New witch hexes and vigilante talents for characters living in boggy wastes, plus ranger traps and the blightwarden ranger archetype for those who tread blight-filled lands.

This Pathfinder Player Companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but it can easily be incorporated into any fantasy world.


We don’t need another hero–but that’s what we’re gonna get with this book.
