Advanced Class Guide Playtest

Welcome to the Advanced Class Guide playtest! Due to be released in August 2014, the Advanced Class Guide will contain a wealth of new materials for players and GMs alike. Most importantly, the book contains 10 new classes, each one of which combines features from two existing classes to give you a brand new play experience. This playtest focuses on these 10 classes, including complete rules for the arcanist, the bloodrager, the brawler, the hunter, the investigator, the shaman, the skald, the slayer, the swashbuckler, and the warpriest.

Download the document, make a character or two and give them a try in your game. Have the players face off against a few, or just use them to run some mock combats. Once you've given them a try, head over to the messageboards and give us your feedback. We want to hear from you. This playtest will run until December 17th, 2013.

The PDF download was last updated on December 9, 2013 to include revised Playtest content.

Help us gather feedback by completing the Advanced Class Guide Playtest Survey!
