Who Will Save Sandpoint?

This invaluable resource for Pathfinder's first Adventure Path reveals how best to customize your character so that he'll fit into the realm of Varisia with ease. Inside this guide you'll find:

  • An introduction to Varisia, the frontier region that serves as the setting for Rise of the Runelords, and a brief exploration of your PCs' new hometown of Sandpoint.
  • Notes on how humans, elves, dwarves, gnomes, halflings, half-elves, and half-orcs exist in Varisia.
  • Details on what roles each character class can expect to fill in Rise of the Runelords, including suggestions for animal companions and familiars, favored enemies, character backgrounds, and more.
  • Domains and more for twenty new deities comprising the core pantheon of the Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting.
  • New weapons, armor, and equipment.
  • New feats to give your PCs a distinct Varisianfeel.
  • Full-color maps of Varisia and Sandpoint.

Can we get an option for buying a pack?

Or should I just order 5 at once?

We wanted to keep it flexible, so just order as many as you like at once.

The PDF should indeed go up tomorrow.

Feats for making gnomes even more badass. ^_^

I don't think you need to take a feat to play a good race instead of a gnome.

Just say gno to gnomes.

A question: Will there be one of these Player's Guides for each Pathfinder AP or is this just something special for RotRL?

Paizo Employee Chief Creative Officer, Publisher

The current plan is to do one for each AP.

Don't lose hope -- remember, the good folks at Paizo are on Pacific Time! They are probably just having their first cup of coffee right now.


Heh, I'm just having my first cup of coffee, and I'm on Central time...

Yeah, we get off early today to celebrate the fact that we don't suck like the rest of the mortgage industry. I'm hoping its posted before I leave.

Patience is a virtue.

I am indeed having my first cup of coffee. At home.

Then, when I get into work, I have some things I have to take care of first.

Then the Players Guide PDF goes up.

Patience....


We shall all raise our first cup of coffee for the morning, and toast the good folk of Paizo!

Hurray! BTW, you may have the coolest job title ever.


Whee! Anybody keeping track of how many times they're hitting refresh until this goes up? (I've lost count).

glad to hear this is definitely going up today, I've been chomping at the bit to read it & now my players are starting to as well, mainly to see what kinda characters will feel at home in the setting (so far I've opened the PH races & classes & the various Completes Book classes) but with options to nullify any if needed.

Again, can't wait!!!

I just hope they will post it before 2:00 CST. This way I can read at work.

Sovereign Court

Instead of refreshing every 5 minutes, I think I go play Oblivion. I'll be able to bear it that way. I'll check back every hour or two. It's still before 9 am out here on the west coast.

Please keep in mind that I'll be selling these to stores in packs of five, so if you order your books from your FLGS ask for a pack plus one :-) THey will, of course, be available individually on paizo.com.

Excellent, I'll be happy to scarf up a set or two of packets of these - well, three, since our group is a tad on the bloated size end of things.

As a rule, I generally do not care for PDF gaming materials. In fact, I'm not the biggest of 3.5e fans either, truly preferring simpler systems like C&C.

Despite those things however, here I sit anxiously awaiting this PDF being posted. Truthfully, I can little recall another RPG product that has had me so hyped up awaiting its release.

Damn you Pathfinder.


I have this mental picture of a bunch of gamers perched like gargoyles, looking over and watching...waiting...

The Varisian Tattoo spell-like abilities do not seem to have the Varisian names mentioned in the feat description.


Just skimmed it...very nice!

Thank you!


Oh man, this is awesome; I'm so pumped for the campaign now! I love the bonus feats; they are actually useful.


I love the donkeyrats! And Golemworkers? Can't wait to here more about them.
