I havn't gotten a chance to read though it, but it is nice to see some additional PDF support for the Beginners Box. The fact that it seems to be a bridging document is even better.

This is... rad. I'm starting up a BB campaign which I plan to transition to the Core rules after 5th level. Thanks for this!

I CAN'T WAIT TO READ THIS! This has been needed and requested for a while. Thanks Paizo, for listening to your customers!

Sweet. I'm going to try this with my 7rd old and my 11yr old niece and 10 and 12 yr old nephews. To see how this pans out.

Nice tie-in from the BBB stuff to this.

Might be something we can do at cons for a Pathfinder Kids Track (ages 6-12)

This is extremely well written, Sean. Although not technically a beginner, as a rules-challenged player, I found it both clear and easy to follow. Nice work.

I am very pleased to see this! Can't wait to check it out...

Yeeeeeeeeees. Yeeeeeeeeees. Yeeeeeeeeees. Yeeeeeeeeees. Yeeeeeeeeees. Yeeeeeeeeees. Yeeeeeeeeees.

Paizo, I love you. Let's have RPG babies.

You guys just continue to impress me. Good work!

Sent this to my kids already!

Great stuff!

This is really cool. I love how you are all supporting new players and GMs to the game. It's something that is really needed.

It also occurs to me that this document might be used in the opposite way- to simplify the Core Rules a bit for more streamlined games. Hmm. I'll have to explore further (and maybe even pick up the Beginner Box one of these days, even though I'm not really a beginner.)

I haven't had a chance to do more than skim, but if that's the case cthulhudrew, then it's even MORE useful. And if it isn't all that helpful in simplifying full PF material for BB, then I hope Paizo writes something up that does the job. While there are some guidelines in the BB, a more detailed document would be great. I mean, "Ignore the stuff you don't recognize" only gets you so far...

Thank You. As I am teaching my 8 year old to game using the BB, this will come quite in handy soon as we continue to prep him to join the "Big Boy's" game.

Great Job.

Now free is something that I can go with.

Hey Paizo. I see what you did there.

The Beginner Box is a gateway game and the Transitions PDF is a free sample of the stronger stuff.

Ah yup. ;-)
