The 16-page Rise of the Runelords Player's Guide is an invaluable resource for players seeking to start this exciting new campaign.
The guide presents details on how best to customize your character so that he'll fit into the campaign. What’s the best choice of favored enemy for a ranger? Which of the region's deities will your cleric worship? What about new weapons for your fighter? And everyone loves new feats; there are several to choose from in this product, all of which are specifically designed to aid you in your fight against the Runelords.
Yet there's more to building a character than crunching the numbers; this guide also gives you extensive details on the frontier region known as Varisia and the town of Sandpoint where the campaign begins. Build your character from the ground up as a living, breathing addition to this brand new world!
Pathfinder is Paizo Publishing's 96-page, perfect-bound, full-color softcover Adventure Path book printed on high-quality paper that releases in a monthly volume. Each volume is brought to you by the same staff which brought you Dragon and Dungeon magazines for over five years. It contains an in-depth Adventure Path scenario, stats for about a half-dozen new monsters, and several support articles meant to give Game Masters additional material to expand their campaign. Because Pathfinder uses the Open Game License, it is 100% compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world's most popular fantasy roleplaying game.
This is a small (only 16 pages) guide to the world in which Pathfinder is set- the continent of Varisia, part of the world of Golarion.
It purports to be the guide to start the players out on "Rise of the Runelords" but it's a great guide for any who adventure in that world.
Sections on races and classes of Varisia, including a great chart on the local Deities , including Portfolios, Domains and even favored weapons.
There's also a handful of local weapons and other gear, including the Starknife and War-razor.
I also like the local feats, here included for a free background feat. In power, they are moe like "traits" than feats, but still they add a little local flavor and some roleplaying ideas, but also are somewhat useful.
There's great color maps of Sandpoint and Varisia, too.
All in all, this is a fantastic value for the price.
Uma ótima primeira introdução ao cenário de Varisia, mas não prepara tão bem os personagens para a campanha quanto player guides futuros. De qualquer forma é muito bem escrito e vale a pena para qualquer jogador de Rise of the Runelords.
