Pathfinder Second Edition Remaster Project!

Wednesday, April 26, 2023

Today, we are pleased to reveal the Pathfinder Second Edition Remaster Project, four new hardcover rulebooks that offer a fresh entry point to the Pathfinder Second Edition roleplaying game! The first two books, Pathfinder Player Core and Pathfinder GM Core, release this November, with Pathfinder Monster Core (March 2024) and Pathfinder Player Core 2 (July 2024) completing the remastered presentation of Pathfinder’s core rules. The new rulebooks are compatible with existing Pathfinder Second Edition products, incorporating comprehensive errata and rules updates as well as some of the best additions from later books into new, easy-to-access volumes with streamlined presentations inspired by years of player feedback.


Pathfinder Second Edition Remaster Project


This year saw a huge explosion of new Pathfinder players. Remastered books like Pathfinder Player Core and Pathfinder GM Core improve upon the presentation of our popular Pathfinder Second Edition rules, remixing four years of updates and refinements to make the game easier to learn and more fun to play.


Pathfinder Player Core Cover Mock


In time, the Pathfinder Player Core, Pathfinder GM Core, Pathfinder Monster Core, and Pathfinder Player Core 2 will replace the Pathfinder Core Rulebook, Gamemastery Guide, Bestiary, and Advanced Player’s Guide, which Paizo will not reprint once their current print runs expire. Existing Pathfinder players should be assured that the core rules system remains the same, and the overwhelming majority of the rules themselves will not change. Your existing books are still valid. The newly formatted books consolidate key information in a unified place—for example, Pathfinder Player Core will collect all the important rules for each of its featured classes in one volume rather than spreading out key information between the Core Rulebook and the Advanced Player’s Guide.

The new core rulebooks will also serve as a new foundation for our publishing partners, transitioning the game away from the Open Game License that caused so much controversy earlier this year to the more stable and reliable Open RPG Creative (ORC) license, which is currently being finalized with the help of hundreds of independent RPG publishers. This transition will result in a few minor modifications to the Pathfinder Second Edition system, notably the removal of alignment and a small number of nostalgic creatures, spells, and magic items exclusive to the OGL. These elements remain a part of the corpus of Pathfinder Second Edition rules for those who still want them, and are fully compatible with the new remastered rules, but will not appear in future Pathfinder releases.


Pathfinder GM Core mock cover


In the meantime, Pathfinder’s remaining projects and product schedule remain as-is and compatible with the newly remastered rules. This July’s Rage of Elements hardcover, along with the Lost Omens campaign setting books and our regular monthly Adventure Path volumes, continue as planned, as does the Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign, which will incorporate the new rules as they become available.

Learn more with our FAQ here or read it below

Is this a new edition of Pathfinder?

No. The Pathfinder Second Edition Remaster Project does not change the fundamental core system design of Pathfinder. Small improvements and cosmetic changes appear throughout, but outside of a few minor changes in terminology, the changes are not anywhere substantive enough to be considered a new edition. We like Pathfinder Second Edition. You like Pathfinder Second Edition. This is a remastered version of the original, not a new version altogether.

Are my existing Pathfinder Second Edition books now obsolete?

No. With the exception of a few minor variations in terminology and a slightly different mix of monsters, spells, and magic items, the rules remain largely unchanged. A pre-Remaster stat block, spell, monster, or adventure should work with the remastered rules without any problems.

What does this mean for my digital content?

Paizo is working with its digital partners to integrate new system updates in the most seamless way possible. The new rules will be uploaded to Archives of Nethys as usual, and legacy content that does not appear in the remastered books will not disappear from online rules.

We will not be updating PDFs of legacy products with the updated rules.

Will the Pathfinder Second Edition Remaster books be part of my ongoing Pathfinder Rulebooks subscription?

Pathfinder Second Edition Remaster books will be included in ongoing Pathfinder Rulebooks subscriptions. We are currently working on a method whereby existing subscribers will have the opportunity to “opt out” of these volumes if they wish and will provide additional details as we get closer to the release of the first two volumes.

What impact will the Second Edition Remaster have on Pathfinder Society Organized Play?

We are working closely with our Organized Play team to seamlessly integrate new rules options in the upcoming books as those books are released, as normal. In the rare case of a conflict between a new book and legacy source, campaign management will provide clear advice with as little disruption as possible to player characters or the campaign itself.

Will there be more Remastered Core books to come? What about Monster Core 2 or Player Core 3?

It’s very likely that we will continue to update and remaster the Bestiaries in the future, but for now we’re focusing on the four announced books as well as Paizo’s regular schedule of Pathfinder releases. Publishing 100% new material remains Paizo’s primary focus, and we look forward to upcoming releases like Pathfinder Rage of Elements, the Lost Omens Tian Xia World Guide and Character Guide, our monthly Adventure Path installments, and other exciting projects we have yet to announce.

Will the new Pathfinder Second Edition Remaster books have Special Editions?

Yes. We are looking into various exciting print options for these books and will post more information soon.

Will the new Pathfinder Second Edition Remaster books have Pocket Editions?

Yes. Pocket editions of the new books will appear roughly three months following the hardcover releases.

Will these changes impact the Starfinder Roleplaying Game?

Not yet.

How can I learn more about the Pathfinder Second Edition Remaster books?

To learn more about the Remaster books, check out our live stream chat about the announcement happening later today on Twitch. Beyond that, we’ll be making a handful of additional announcements in the coming days and weeks to showcase more about this exciting project, culminating in your first full look at the project during PaizoCon (May 26th–29th)!

I'm not convinced that it will actually do that. It looks like a renaming of the existing Core Rulebook and Gamemastery Guide.

But it is possible. I'm waiting to see what is actually announced fully before crying that the sky is falling though.

Removing alignment is foolish also splitting the core book into a players and GM one is also not a good idea I prefer how Paizo does it of just buying one book for both.

Fear not. I'm pretty sure that alignment will survive on as alt rules. IMO, they're probably just doing a swap with their existing alt rules for alignment so that alt are primary and alignment is alt. It should be a trivial lift for you to keep using alignment.

No, but the books will have been sent to the printer several weeks before and it's not inconceivable that we may have some printer samples to display at Gen Con. Would certainly be very cool.

If you're houseruling, chances are you have the GMG. Although I've personally only skimmed its contents. Still reading the setting books that preceded it... Getting an idea of how to describe/articulate important things in my home campaign setting seems more important than fussing with the GMG atm.

Several companies have d5s, d7s, and d16s on the market (along with d30s and d60s).

DCC uses that. Sadly, it's very "OSR" in styling, so I don't play it. But it's designed around the full gamut of dice sizes. Prices have come down a lot on the weird sizes, but they're still up there. I think it's still fair to focus on the standard "poly 7" set.

So I really doubt Paizo would pick up that kind of thing in just an "errata and licensing" update.

Good luck, Paizo! Glad you won't have the Wizards of Damocles hanging over your head anymore. It'll also be nice that the rules will be getting a good once-over for improvements in hindsight.

Dumb question that doesn't matter just curious. If Player core 2 replaces the apg why are 4 core classes iconics on the cover instead of the 4 apg classes?

Looking forward to the updates. I'll be picking up another set, even though I have a complete set of hardcovers to date. Hopefully we get some more love for existing classes in the form of new class feats and character choices within the existing classes.

I think splitting the player core and gamemastery core in particular is a good idea. While it is convenient having everything in one purchase, a new player being handed that chonk of a corebook can easily be overwhelmed.

From a minor sentence in the posting, it looks like they may have moved the class definitions for the APG classes into the core book.

Losing alignment is big because it conveys a ton of info to a GM in just 1-2 characters.

I mean, we can usually guess at it by reading all the description, but sometimes you just want to know if a mook is a bad guy, not his whole life story.

Any changes to champions to go with the alignment removal?

EDIT: maybe necromancy (the undead raising part) is finally freed from the chains of the evil alignment?

We can hope that it goes away and gets replaced with something better which (a) allows divine sorcerers to be blasters too and (b) doesn't unduly nerf clerics of neutral gods.

I don't like alignment personally, but I don't think its a matter of your preference versus my preference. Chances are that alignment is considered a mechanic that might be indefensible in the court if Wizards decided to sue Paizo over using their brand identity. The concept of, "a mechanic that measures your goodness" is definitely a game mechanic that probably couldn't be sued over, but using that rule and calling it alignment could be argued as D&D product identity, and it's probably easier to trash it as a result.

Strange, since my recollection is that the original D&D got a lot of their alignment stuff from Elric of Melniboné and other similar book series. The first book of that series was published in 1972. Now those books were about Law vs Chaos, but still it seems that their claim would be weak.

Honestly, I was in favor of dumping alignment in the PF2 playtest. Look forward to seeing what they do with Divine Lance cantrip since that is likely to demonstrate a lot of the changes for this.

Removing alignment without at least providing an alternative descriptor process is a bad idea.

For my two cents, not that I think this has a chance, but if this remaster make the "Proficiency without Level" rules from the Gamemastery Guide the default, then I'm 100% in on this. Pipe dream, sure, and I'm probably in a minority of people who think that is what the game really needs to do, but just getting that thought out there.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Alignment going the way of the Dodo is fine, since it's largely a vestigial limb from older versions of D&D. Other game systems have shown you can have better ways of dealing with the idea of alignment. But it will change how some classes work, as well as how some spells function.

One big benefit is that content is going to be less spaced out between several books, and instead be unified in one place. As a Starfinder fan, I'm especially aware of what a hassle it is to have vital systems, class features, and more spread out over every hardcover release.

That said: They are not going to update any of the existing PDFs with rule changes or new rules going forward.

That seriously stings, seeing as having continued up-to-date rules in PDF form was one of the big reasons for buying a PDF version of the books in addition to the printed version.

Continuing to have that information on Archives of Nethys doesn't really offset that, since there are key use-cases (and just general preference) for having PDFs.

I can understand that there is significant legwork involved in terms of editing & layout, and that having old books incorporate new text would add work.

I can also understand why Paizo is doing this. Again, as a Starfinder player, it's a significant barrier to entry to new folks, to have to tell them that the Starfinder CRB is not fully feature complete , as key things (such as Starship rules) are locked behind separate books.

For PF2E the APG is pretty much mandatory, as is Bestiary 1.

But I can't help but feel nickeled & dimed from this change, especially since I (like many folks) just got a 2E CRB earlier this year.

I purchased these books in part directly from Paizo, as part of a good faith effort to support a different game system.

I can't help but feel shortchanged, as significant rule changes are not going to be made available to me, despite having paid money for PDFs of all the affected books.

At a minimum, what I would like to see is for people who own the PDF versions of the CRB, APG, Gamemastery Guide, and Bestiary 1 to be given some kind of discount on the new versions of these books.

Ideally I would like to see them being given for free, but I recognize that editing and layout takes labor, and I don't expect the people working on these books to have to do so without pay.

The unexpected announcement to structural changes to how 2E sells books makes me incredibly wary of getting the Starfinder Enhanced book that's coming out later this year.

Because I can see 6 months down the line, Paizo announces "Starfinder Remaster", where they do the exact same thing they just did here.


"for example, Pathfinder Player Core will collect all the important rules for each of its featured classes in one volume rather than spreading out key information between the Core Rulebook and the Advanced Player’s Guide."

So will this be a regular remaster? As surely in future book releases, classes will receive updates that are then again spread between multiple books and you're in the same situation as we are now.

Also a shame to rename Bestiary to Monster Core. Bestiary was cool and made it sound like an old manuscript. Monster Core just sounds like you're trying to be like Dungeons and Dragons.

Going by the product descriptions, the core + APG classes are going to be split up evenly between the two books, instead of Core 1 having all the CRB classes and Core 2 having all the APG classes.

Yes. People will not have to feel guilty about choosing their subclass of Champion by putting down an alignment on their character sheet that they don't intend to actually play.

These are mock-up covers, and will be replaced when the new final covers come in.

Watch this blog in the coming days for an early peek at what they will look like!

That's nice!

I see that the rules are going to remain the same, which is great, but would there any chance to see addressed "major topics" that have been discussed all over these years?

I mean, although the rules remain the same, if they are ambiguous ( given the fact there will be some sort of 2.0 ) would be pretty convenient to have them explained the most important in a "different" way.

Or some sort of way that won't allow "interpretation".

For example Battleforms ( what a character can use or can't use while morphed ).
Or what already clarified by paizo staff on "How it's Played" channel.

I'm with you. I've always wanted to do a good sandbox/west marches game and if I do so, I'll be using "Proficiency without level" and ABP exclusively...

I feel like the Paizo website as a whole is a bit unorganized for new prospective players. I say this because I just bought the 2nd Edition of the Pathfinder Core Rulebook hardcover edition when it was on backorder. I finally received the book and was confused on if that is all I really needed to get things started.

As I started browsing the forums, I find out about this Second Edition Remaster Project. Nowhere on the main website page is this brought up or announced or discussed. I'm sure a lot of you guys who are advanced players know how to find every piece of information on this site but it is not laid out well for new visitors.

As a result, I feel like I may have wasted $60 on a book that will be replaced in 6 months.

Please update your site and better organize your book listings for newbies. It would be appreciated.


Just another quick comment to say I am a big fan of all of this and can't wait to grab myself a copy

So I really doubt Paizo would pick up that kind of thing in just an "errata and licensing" update.

There's some 15 piece sets on Amazon for $11.50-$12. Since I revised the weapon list for my home game, I applied the new (to me anyway) dice (knowing I'll just gift some to my players).

Back in the day (A)D&D1 had a lot of 1-5, 1-7, etc., etc. rolls but these were all understood to be 2d3-1, 2d4-1, etc., etc. Which does make one wonder how much Gygax et al. really understood about statistics. 1d7 is a vastly different set of results than 2d4-1.

I'm in the same boat. Had fun with SF until I played PF2e in an extended game. Now it just feels clunky. I was SO hoping that SF would get a 2E update so hopefully this opens that door.

No one's mentioned that those are facts. Just that alignment has been removed. However, I'm pretty sure alignment will be available as alt rules which won't be hard to apply.

God I hope not, I still don't get why people enjoy ABP so much when it basically makes playing an alchemist more boring than it usually is.

I think tha apart from a couple of them ( rogues and neutral champions ), the rest is something I wouldn't like to have ( as for FA, I like and don't like it, so making it optional is pretty good to me ).

I agree that it could be otherwise, but it feels very much from the description that they're renaming GMG and bolting all the CRB GM content into it, especially as the product page for PC1 and PC2 have nothing about "how to run" but only "how to play"

I suspected the alignment part would generate some conversation.

I'm sure Jason will go into this a little deeper in today's stream, but just because we are removing the classic nine-alignement grid does not mean we are abandoning the idea of certain creatures being "good" or "evil" in a cosmic sense.

The significant majority of Pathfinder rules regarding alignment hinge on that aspect, so expect the remastered books to cover this in a way that doesn't wreck the champion or demons, for example.

But is there something to replace it?

There is reason why I made whole homebrew alignment table of "eight alignments of Community, Beneficent, Liberty, Dogma, Anarchy, Tyranny, Ego, Destruction derived from cosmic forces Radiance, Shadow, Preservation and Entropy" for my homebrew campaign idea :'D Because I really like idea of SMT type stuff and alignments being something you choose to be which makes creatures who chose same like you better.

Idea of being ALIGNED with cosmic force and getting benefits from it is so cool :'D
