Guns & Gears Playtest
Welcome to the Pathfinder Guns & Gears playtest for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game! This is our opportunity to add two new Pathfinder classes—the gunslinger and inventor—and we need your help to do it!
Download the free Guns & Gears playtest, make gunslinger and inventor characters, and run them through their paces. Then tell us what you and your friends thought of the experience. We need your feedback to make these classes the best they can be!
Once you have a copy of the playtest document, it’s time to gather some friends, create characters, and test them in play. We’re interested in feedback gathered from a variety of in-game situations, so feel free to try out the new classes in multiple Pathfinder Bounties, Pathfinder Society scenarios (you can run them for credit using the Organized Play rules found here or without those rules at all), standalone Pathfinder Adventures, Pathfinder Adventure Paths, or adventures of your (or your GM’s) own design.
The playtest will run until February 5, 2021. Once you’ve had some time to play with the new material, come back here to share your experiences using the survey linked below.
GUNS & GEARS SURVEY
Let us know what you think about the class by completing these short surveys: the Class Survey and the Open Response Survey. The surveys will remain open throughout the playtest period, but will close when the playtest ends, so make sure to fill them out by February 5.
Other Ways to Participate
You can also engage with other players and designers on the Guns & Gears playtest forum, discussing the new material and possibilities for the future. While we want to focus on actual-play feedback, we’re interested in hearing all of your ideas about this exciting new addition to Pathfinder.
