There are two new pocket edition rulebooks due to be released for Pathfinder. It’s possible these will be some of the last Pathfinder books you’ll find released pocket-sized before Pathfinder 2.0 comes out and casts doubt on everything. So pick up the Ultimate Magic and Bestiary 4 for a nice pint-sized pal-around.
Exactly what it says on the tin folks. These two books are expected to be up for pre-order come Apriltime. So be sure and keep an eye out for them, assuming you can spot things that are roughly pocket sized…
