Pathfinder Player Companions are an invaluable resource for Pathfinder players and Game Masters alike! Each 32-page volume contains player-focused articles exploring a specific theme or region found in the Pathfinder Campaign Setting. You'll find new rules, traits, magic items, and more for all types of characters that will better anchor them in the world of your own Pathfinder campaign.

Paizo releases Pathfinder Player Companion volumes monthly, with each issue providing you with new player-focused resources. With your ongoing Pathfinder Player Companion subscription, we'll send you each new installment and charge your payment method automatically as we ship each product. You only need to sign up once, and never need to worry about renewal notice or missed products.

Aside from receiving the latest supplements for your character, you'll also receive:

  • A free PDF copy of each release shipped as part of your Pathfinder Player Companion subscription

By starting a Pathfinder Player Companion subscription, each release will be automatically bundled with any other Paizo subscription items you're subscribed to releasing in the same month.

When you start an ongoing subscription, any existing preorders for products covered by that subscription are automatically cancelled (or have their quantity reduced by one if you've preordered more than one of an item).

The Player Companion line is not really checked thoroughly enough for balance or mistakes of the new content, because the monthly release window is too narrow for that with all the different contributors per book.

As a result there is a lot of power creep and sometimes a few underpowered things.

All in all one has to pick the Player Companion that appeals to him/her.

You should check with your GM for permission to use the new content though.

As a GM i would roughly allow half of the PCs content and ban the other half.

Being a Pathfinder Player Companion Subscriber, I disagree with this blanket statement. Do they make mistakes? Yes. Editing errors are made, including giving differing archetypes the same name. That has happened a few times.

However, power creep seems to happen more in 3PP than in these Player Companions, in my experience. Often, these options are more flavorful than optimized.
This is my favorite line of all of Paizo's products because many contributors are not part of the Paizo staff and therefore have some fresh new ideas (as do the Paizo contributors, also) not seen in other parts of the game line.
While $15 is a fair amount to pay for a 32 page book, I have yet to regret subscribing in the year or so I have subscribed (I think it will be a year in January?). Love Player Companion!
