Not every adventure awaits within a sealed tomb or mad wizard's tower. In seemingly civilized cities, dangers lurk down every twisting alley, and backroom deals might spell the end for nosy investigators. Pathfinder Player Companion: Heroes of the Streets provides the resources to take your Pathfinder RPG character from a dungeon-delver to a witty and backstabbing urbanite.

Heroes of the Streets is a player-focused supplement that provides inspiration and rules for city-focused characters and campaigns, allowing you to make the most of an urban adventure. Each Pathfinder Player Companion includes new options and tools for every Pathfinder RPG player. Inside this book, you'll find:

  • Background suggestions and traits for heroes of every race who hail from Golarion's biggest and oldest cities.
  • New archetypes that bring bloodragers, hunters, skalds, and witches out of the wilderness and into the city.
  • Exceptional gear and magic items especially suited for urban intrigue, underhanded espionage, and despicable crimes.
  • Optional subdomains focused on city life and urban challenges, opening up unique powers and expertises to clerics and inquisitors.
  • New spells especially suited to getting by in the bustling streets and back alleys of your favorite metropolis.

This Pathfinder Player Companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be incorporated into any fantasy world.

Best Player Companion

*****

So far this is my favorite entry in the entire Player Companion line. I'm running Hell's Rebels right now, so I got this for my players. I immediately fell in love with the book. The flavor is exactly the right tone, pace, and level of detail for my players. Every single piece of crunch is something which is just powerful enough that people want to use it, without any one item seeming OP (at least as far as I can tell). But most importantly, all of the crunch feels very flavorful. If you are in a campaign which involves any amount of urban adventuring, this is a must have. If your campaign has no urban campaigning, this book will make you want to book it for the nearest city.

Sadly, that can't happen since the brothels gave way to dance houses in Ultimate Campaign. XD

Heroes of the street...

...but a freak in the bed! I said, YEAH!

But seriously I'll be disappointed if this book does not have urban fantasy slang terms.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Between Dirty Tactics and this one, there should be a lot of urban adventure support for the Hell's Rebels AP!


I'm running my first totally city based campaign and this would be a great help.

Why has this and other books (like the Dirty Tricks one) shown up on the product page yet?

Honestly, I'm much more hoping they try to focus on most of the other classes that do not so easily fit in a "street" level game. Something along the lines of the Urban Druid/Ranger/Barbarian for classes like Cleric and Monk, maybe a Cavalier that focuses on personal security for in coming merchants/caravans.

Really don't need anything the more obvious classes like Bard and Rogue, who already play well, (best) in urban and street settings.

Liberty's Edge

Shouldn't this show in the PF Companion page?

I want a Flash Mob teamwork feat, and the Shaft prestige class. The streetwalker archetype while appreciated may not be palatable.

Need more Rogue, Investigator, Brawler and things like Urban Ranger.

The Mature imprint Heroes Between the Sheets is no longer available in the scratch-n-sniff variant.

Edit: It was never available in a scratch-n-sniff variant.

Edit 2: It was never available at all.

I AM expecting Vigilante support in this as well.

I take it there's a lot of monologuing, nefarious mustache twirling, then a complete collapse all your grandest plans followed by diving out the escape hatch?

The cover not being actualized makes me wonder if it will come out in september at all...


Curious to see what we might get from this, not much news as of yet it seems.......

:(

I fully expect this NOT to come out on september 30th.

You expect them to push the sole September Player Companion from September into October, when 2 such books are already planned for that month? Based on past patterns, I think it is far more likely that the 2nd October release will get pushed into November. If they are going to delay Heroes of the Streets, they would have to move 2 Player Companions from their currently scheduled months to the following months before this Thursday (when the monthly order spawning starts).

I hope you´re right. But the fact that we don´t have an actual cover or updated description speaks against it.
Would´nt be the first time that no Players Companion comes out in a month. I think it already was the case in february.
I guess we´ll know more tonight.
But the most important thing is that the product turns out good.
I don´t need a Player Companion that is mostly worthless every month.
But since Owen has taken over that seems to have changed - last/this month´s Dirty Tactics Toolbox is real good -the first one since Melee Tactics Toolbox.

Good work needs to be recognized. One can see that you ask people what they want and then manage to transport that into the final book.

Keep up the great work and thank you. :-)


So what is up with this product again?

Great cover – Jirelle rocks the crowds! And it's just showing up in my September order authorization mail, too. Probably useful for a Hell's Rebels campaign.

The Cover looks great...

Can I expect more Calistria support in this book? the whole 'Optional subdomains focused on city life and urban challenges, opening up unique powers and expertise to clerics and inquisitors.' seems to suggest that it is possible.


Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Nice cover, I hope the swashbuckler will get some love.

Is there any chance that the occult classes will get anything in this book?

No, Occult Origins is the first PC book that comes out late enough that we could get nearly-finished rules into the hands of our writers.

It was possible, but that's not the way the subdomains went. We mention Abadar, Abraxas, Andoletta, Apollyon, Arqueros, Asmodeus, Besmara, Bergelmir, Bharnarol, Brigh, Cayden Cailean, Chaldira Zuzaristan, Cyth-V’sug, Daikitsu, Dispater, Droskar, Erastil, Erecura, Eritrice, Ghlaunder, Gorum, Iomedae, Irori, Kelinahat, Kurgess, Lamashtu, Lissala, Marishi, Milani, Nethys, Norgorber, Shei, Svarozic , Torag, Trudd, Urgathoa , and Winlas, but nothing specifically for Calistria this time.

DAIKITSU?

One nitpick though -- Compared to her appearance in the Advanced Class Guide, doesn't Jirelle look a bit pale on this cover?

Ah... it seems to me Calistria just screams urban adventures...and I am probably a little greedy for more Calistria favored options.
