Beadle and Grimm's Complete Character Chronicle update.

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

We launch our kickstarter on the 27th, and we wanted to reach out and give you an update on our progress.

But first, maybe it's best to remind you what it is we're up to. We here are Beadle & Grimm's are building something that we think is unique, and more to the point, something that as gamers ourselves, we've always wanted.

The Complete Character Chronicles is a class specific role playing journal for Pathfinder 2e. What does that mean? It means that we took your character sheet, the rules you need from your character, and an expansive journal, and combined them into one book.

The Character Sheet: 20+ pages (depending on the class) with plenty of room for feats, skills, notes, equipment, loot, and home-brew content. All on heavy paper and a lay-flat binding to stand up to years of use.

Beadle & Grimm's character chronicle character sheet layed out on two pages with a parchment-like background


The Rules: All the rules from the Core Rulebook and Advanced Player's Guide you need to play your character. If you're a Wizard, you get all the Wizard spells, and just the Wizard spells.

An illustrated page example of how different wizard class spells would work from the Core Rule Book and Advanced Player's Guide


The Journal: Pages of room to tell your story. Beautifully illustrated, with inspirational quotes from the heroes of Pathfinder. Includes additional class specific elements, like a fold out map you can use to build your Wizard's keep.

A blank lined journal with a parchment-like background and a sketched illustration of a branch-like staff

All the tools to tell your story, and the pages to preserve them.

The day approaches, and we can't wait to show you more.

I'm mostly courious how well these will function for Mutlticlass or heavily Archetyped PCs, but this sounds great.

All my players use their phones, but I wouldn't mind having them. It is worth a look. I wonder it the Kickstarter will affect the length and content, or is that set already?

These really look great!


Is this something you’ll be making for 1e as well?

I love these.

Will PDF versions of the info be available as well?

Absolutely gorgeous. I'm pretty much a forever GM and I'll still be picking up one for each class that's available.

OK, so they're starting with the core 4 classes and adding more via the Kickstarter as stretch goals I'm assuming.

From the website:

We’re starting with Wizard, Fighter, Cleric, and Rogue. As part of the Kickstarter, you’ll get to help unlock the next group of classes.

Hi Cyfer, this is Bill from B&G. Thanks for asking. The length and content of the books is pretty set. There are a few cool features that we're hoping will get unlocked in the Kickstarter (the whiteboard in particular!), but basically we wanted to offer the best possible version of the books right out of the gate, regardless of how the KS goes. This is our first Paizo product and we want you to love it. :) Thanks again for your interest and let me know if there are any other questions I can answer!

I feel like this would also be perfect for a PFS character you love so much you play them on slow progression.

The areas page is really nice!

[Edit]
Oh wait... The emanation section is missing the added sentence from the errata!

Errata wrote:
Page 457: In the Emanation section, add the following sentence to the end. “Unless the text states otherwise, the creature creating an emanation effect chooses whether the creature at its center is affected.”

Thanks Grimm the Slayer!
I hope there will be bundle deals!

I echo Unikatze will there be PDFs with the physical books?

If this does well is there a possibility Pathfinder Adventure Paths will get some of the deluxe treatment you have given D&D?

PLEASE NO!

The collector in me will want all of them and I just can't afford to spend more on books I never read!

For when you want to make your GM feel REALLY guilty about killing your PC at 3rd level.

These look great, interested in what will get unlocked over the KS.

Whiteboard, as in an overgrown combat pad? Man, I just bought a TV for this purpose, but I will have to seriously consider the whiteboard if that is indeed what it is for, especially if it is magnetic.

Yes! We are dying to do a premium box for an adventure path, and Paizo is excited as well. Definitely in the plans. Glad to hear you're interested! :)

I daresay most people who knew your company's work have been extremely interested in this when they first heard about your collaboration with Paizo.

Full disclosure : I did not know about your company before this collaboration was announced. Likely due to being an international (French) customer. Glad to have found out.
