Get the most out of your heritage with the Pathfinder RPG Advanced Race Guide! Embrace your inner monster by playing one of 30 iconic races from mythology and gaming history, or build an entirely new race of your own. If classic races are more your style, go beyond the stereotypes for elves, dwarves, and the other core races with new options and equipment to help you stand out from the crowd.

The Pathfinder RPG Advanced Race Guide is a bold new companion to the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook. This imaginative tabletop game builds on more than 10 years of system development and an Open Playtest featuring more than 50,000 gamers to create a cutting-edge RPG experience that brings the all-time best-selling set of fantasy rules into the new millennium.

The 256-page Pathfinder RPG Advanced Race Guide includes:

  • New rules and options to help you customize all seven of the classic core races, including new racial traits, racial subtypes, and racial archetypes.
  • 30 exotic races, from mischievous goblins and reptilian kobolds to crow-headed tengus and deadly drow, each with complete rules for use as player characters, plus archetypes, alternate racial traits, and other options for maximum customization.
  • A complete and balanced system for creating an unlimited number of new races, mixing and matching powers and abilities to form characters and cultures specific to your campaign.
  • Tons of new race-specific equipment, feats, spells, and magic items for each of the races detailed!

Castrovel(the Green) is the "venus" one and Akiton(the Red) is the "Mars" one Ashanderi.

Hopefully they added Aberation, Dragon, and Magical Beast to options

I figured I got it wrong when I wrote it, but I didn't have time to look it up while at work. Despite the planet I mentioned not being a direct analogue to Mars, I think my point stands.

May just can't get here fast enough, can't wait to see the official cover art.

The cover art was revealed a few weeks ago in the latest Wayfinder. :)

May and June are shaping up to be 2 crazy packed months of books!!!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Wayfinder? is that something Pathfinder society related?


It's a Pathfinder fanzine created by fans of Pathfinder. You can download the released issues HERE. Want to contribute? Check out THIS thread.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thanks for the info Heine Stick.


I can hardly wait for this book~


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I like the new cover but I wish they included some more non-core races.

I am more excited about this book then I was for Ultimate magic and Ultimate combat.

I hope there will racial traits and racial favored class bonuses.

I am sure there will be racial feats but I hope there will be a large feat section since the races only got 2-6 pages.

Taldor

As a GM, I can't wait for this book ... but it maybe a waste :(

My players are VERY humano-centric, though one of them did play a (prepare to be shocked) half-elf once ;)

I'd be looking forward to traits for Centaurs personally -- I've always thought a group of Centaurs with lances and bows would kick butt :0

Roll on May :)

I hope there are racial favored class bonuses.

I also hope there is a scent feat for Catfolk, Ratfolk, and other animal race that should get it.

Is there going to be magic items in this book?


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Are there going to be racial bonuses for favored Ultimate classes?

Will there be guidelines for making templates?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

What kindof templates are you talking about?

Bardess, are talking about classes from the ultimate books or something else?


Classes from ultimate books: Magus, Gunslinger, Ninja and Samurai.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I would say that the new races need favorite racial bonuses for all the classes.

Also the core classes need favorite racial bonuses for the classes they were mising from the other classes as well.

*sigh* June. Oh well, more time to build up money for this!

Taldor

June? I thought this was supposed to be out in April?

Apparently the combination of Snowpocalypse and Chinese Printer Rebellion threw tore Paizo a new one in their release schedule.

Ow - this plus Runelords plus poosibly the Runelords minis makes my wallet worried...


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Darn pushed back again.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

June?! NOOOOOOOOOO! oh well.

Shadow Lodge

Hey this will be well worth the wait until June so I'll be looking forward to this. Besides we still have the playtest docs which might tide all us eager fans over at least a bit.


Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hmmm..reading through the playtest document. I'm disappointed that it doesn't seem to allow for the creation of some really weird new races. I was looking forward to creating an ooze race and creating a race with the incorporeal subtypes.

Wow, so now there will be 2 hardcovers in June and another in July...

Actually it will be two in June and one in August, as Gencon is back to being in the middle of the month this year.


Did everyone see the preview of the Duergar in this month's Game Trade Magazing from Alliance? The race is completely stated out over these two pages. If you can find a copy you might want to pick it up! I am glad I did!

There is not link, this came out of the actual book. I am hoping Paizo places the pages up for us to download.

Thank you


I just want a good Large Sized player race.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thanks for the link.

Not a big Duergar fan but still interesting choices none the less. A racial archtype for a class is really interesting.


I'm actually currently crafting a Duergar NPC. I was already pretty excited for this book, but getting to use it a little bit on something I'm actually doing has only stoked that excitement.

Silver Crusade

Wondering if the amount of background material in the duergar preview is indicative of how much there will be for the six-pager races or if those guys will be getting more.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The duergar was only a two page one, so it will be interesting to see the four page ones.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules Subscriber

I'm hoping. The duergar's text leaned pretty hard in the "these are all horrible people" direction. I'm hoping the races with more pages(orcs, goblins, etc) get more range and flavor to back that up.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Now that we've seen the final cover for Ultimate Equipment, might this one be coming soon?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Will there be any other races with a race specific archtype for a class?

If so can you say what race(s) and/or class(es) was/were picked?


When will the cover image be updated?

Ultimate Equipment is a bit unusual in that we had the finished artwork in hand before we had to make the mockup cover. So while that mockup uses the final art, it's *still* a mockup cover, and will likely be adjusted prior to publication.

Generally, we post the finished covers a little while after the books are sent to the printer, and the printed has generated proofs, and the proofs have been approved. That's the first point that we know the cover is 100% final, and we wait until that point so that we don't have to update the image repeatedly should things be required to change. I'd expect that to happen for this book within about a month.

Thanks for the insight, Vic!

Gotta love it!


Is there an official reason as to why it has been moved back a few months? I hope that Paizo doesn't follow MWP's Dragonlance releases.

It was probably mentioned upthread, but the latest Wayfinder has an ad featuring the likely final cover art.

still hoping for four-arm mechanics in the race building

Given what we saw in "Orcs of Golarion" I am not holding my breath on that. :(

Well, that's me. Eternally and foolishly hopeful.

I'm hoping being divorced from Golarion canon means that they actually put some flavor their for non-Always Chaotic Evil orcs.

Andoran

I'm fairly certain the answer is "no"--and I apologize if this has already been asked--but, will there be any races in the Advanced Races Guide that are approved for play in Pathfinder Society?


Are orcs really that popular of a PC race?
