PFS Legal Races


Pathfinder Society® General Discussion


This may be a stupid question, but what races are legal in PFS? Is it core only? Any race with 0 racial HD? (other then drow noble and deep gnome of course)

Grand Lodge ** RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Core only.

You can see what non-core content is legal over on the Additional Resources page. Currently no non-core races are legal unless you have a special boon that you got at a convention or other special event.


Damn....so no orcs or tieflings.....

Nope. But half-orcs are available! And frankly, they're not bad, especially if you have the APG for alternate racial features (such as +1 to all saves).

If you are a class that has access to healing (paladin, cleric, inquisitor, bard, druid, witch, oracle), don't give up ferocity for a meagre +1 to saves. Barbarians should also consider keeping it.
