Pathfinder RPG General Discussion


I have a bunch of new players that aren't all that familiar with TTRPGs or the Pathfinder Campaign Setting.

Which Pathfinder Paizo product would be best to have them read to get a taste of the flavor of the campaign world? I think the Inner Sea guide is a bit much. Is there another sourcebook, that does a good job, without giving to much away in terms of things characters just wouldn't know.

We are running Kingmaker, and I'm looking for something similar to the Player's guide to Kingmaker, but Inner Sea focused.

The Inner Sea Primer was pretty much written for that purpose.

As for an overhead lore view you really can't beat the Inner Sea World Guide, but if your players are only interested in relevant info you should pick up the River Kingdoms Guide.

That's what I was looking for. Thanks.
