Pathfinder: Beadle And Grimm’s Character Chronicles Is Live On Kickstarter

3 Minute Read
Nov 1 2020

Beadle and Grimm’s first ever Kickstarter is already a massive success–and one of the best ways to track your character we’ve seen.

Beadle & Grimms’ collaboration with Pathfinder has officially hit Kickstarter, bringing adventurers all across Golarion the opportunity to chronicle their characters in luxury style. They’ve launched a Kickstarter to create not just a character sheet, but a whole chronicle–a 20+ page character sheet. Which sounds like a lot, but let’s take a look at what they have in mind.

The Complete Character Chronicles, the tools you need to tell your story, and the pages to preserve it.

What does that mean?

It means that we take that heap of books, character sheets, and journals stacked up in front of you at the table and distill it down into one book that contains:

  • 20+ page character sheet. Everything you need at your fingertips, including plenty of room for home-brew rules, familiars, allies and enemies, and more.
  • All the rules from the Pathfinder 2e Core Rulebook and Advanced Player Guide that you need to run your character, and only your character. What does that mean for you, a Wizard? It means a spellbook with only Wizard spells.
  • A journal for you to record your character’s entire story.

What goes into building the Chronicles? How about:

  • Full page, 8 1/2 by 11 design
  • Vegan Leather Cover beautifully decorated with an embossed foil design
  • Sturdy lay-flat binding
  • Thick paper for the areas that you’re going to write on
  • Glossy paper for the rules
  • Artwork from the Pathfinder universe, as well as custom pieces commissioned by us for the Character Chronicles


Behold, the Complete Character Chronicles. As Beadle & Grimm puts it:

This is your character’s story. Keep it proudly, and create something that you can refer back to in your dotage, long after your character met their tragic, or heroic, or heroically tragic, end.

The Complete Character Chronicle is a full size journal that includes:

  • Complete rules from the Player’s Guide AND the Advanced Player’s Guide for your class (and your class only!)

  • Spells / Feats for your class (and your class only!)

And more!

  • Original Artwork and elements like Birth and Death certificates, floor plan for your Wizard’s Keep, and more.

  • Complete, expansive character sheets

  • Journal section with grids for map making, and inspiring (or just funny) quotes from famous adventurers

  • All on lay flat binding and quality paper fit for scribbling, drawing, journalling, adding hit points, erasing hit points, and anything else you need for recording the story of your favorite character

In a nutshell, you’re getting a character folio on steroids. It’s got a custom ledger to keep track of everything you could possibly think of–including original artwork, a death certificate (you might need multiples), and a host of other things. It’s already fully funded after just 12 minutes, but there are still 30 days to see what kind of stretch goals (they’ve already unlocked Whiteboards) you can help unlock!
