Fringe Benefits!

Delve into the many non-human societies found outside of the Inner Sea region! From elves to gnomes to halflings to dwarves, Pathfinder Player Companion: Heroes from the Fringe offers new options to expand upon non-human characters who come from lesser-known civilizations and backgrounds. Find the right archetype, feats, alternate racial traits, and equipment to reflect your character's heritage, whether she's a graceful elven samurai from Jinin or one of the festive gnomes and halflings of Segada!

Inside this book you'll find:

  • Character options for unique cultural groups of major non-human peoples of Golarion, including Osirion's Pahmet dwarves, the Ekujae elves of the Mwangi Expanse, and gnomes who never left the First World!
  • Feats for half-orcs and half-elves who hail from different parts of the world, from unyielding half-drow who escaped their murderous kin to vivacious sandkin half-orcs who view themselves as Sarenrae's chosen people!
  • New occult choices spawned from unusual backgrounds, such as whimsical phantoms formed from the lost wonder of gnomes who fell to the Bleaching and a terrifying psychic archetype for gloomkin half-orcs!

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

Definitely looking forward to more about bleachlings, pahmet dwarves, snowcaster elves, ekujae elves, mordant spire elves and aquatic elves!

Huh, all these years later, in a setting that doesn't have gray / high / wood / wild / grugach / silver / gold / sun / moon / dargonesti / dimernesti / avariel / etc. elves, I'm still an elven sub-race junky...

I do miss those sub races from older editions like the stout and tallfellow halflings, forest gnomes, wood and grey elves, etc.

It would be interesting to see a 1e version of the background system from 2e.

This looks interesting. Still hoping for a giant themed book, like Blood Of Giants or something.

This should be in stores on august 2nd.
While i like the "River Drake attack on caravan during a downpour" cover, i suspect we'll get an updated cover soon.
Do we know how many races are covered in this book yet?

Gnomes that never left the First World sound interesting.


That Psychic archetype sounds cool!


Pathfinder Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Whimsical phantoms sound interesting...options for regional Half Elves? Thank you, I like that a lot.
Ah, and it isn't too far off. Just next month. Very nice.

Great Yeti fight cover, even if the human bloodrager doesn't match the content (but the half-elf swashbuckler sure does)!

I have to buy this because of the half-drow content, but i also like the sound of the half-orc sandkin & gloomkin flavor.

I'm also hoping for albino dwarves & snowcaster elves from the crown of the world & maybe mordant spire elves.


I just like people fighting yetis...

Thx Chris!

It doesn't say that the release date has changed in the release schedule?


Pathfinder Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

The release schedule and the July/Gencon subscription thread in Customer Service both have this product as shipping this month and a street date of August 2nd, so an update to the top of this page is slightly overdue.

I hope geniekin get some more loving here. I'm guessing this isn't the book for them, but I can still dream.

Blood of the Elements covered those races.

By the way -- Is this product supposed to ship this month or next month? I have seen contradictory indications in various places. This page has it for "mid-August" and its absence from my "My Subscriptions" page would seem to confirm that, but the top pinned Customer Service thread has it as being shipped this month and available for Gencon pickup.

Sara Marie has confirmed that this book has slipped to August.

What's wrong with Strongheart Halflings?

Fringe minorities are cool! :)

SO true, it will be exciting.


Sooooo... Am I the only one who's noticed that this is listed as a 3.5 splatbook? Seems like a bit of a goof on somebody's part.
(unless after 9 years Paizo decided to go back to making 3rd edition supplements, which would be a twist)

It is also designated as a Campaign Setting book when it is actually a Player Companion.

Silver Crusade

I really home this includes information on the Mbe'ke and Taralu dwarves of Garund!

I would also some to see something more written on aasimar, elemental-kin, tieflings etc that don't use human as the assumed base race. How does a dwarven aasimar or ifrit differ from an elven sylph?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

Well the release date has changed now:(

Geez, Paizo *is* running out of ideas, what kind of heroes live in a refrigerator?

In hindsight, the answer to this is obvious....
