Best Way to Start Pathfinder

*****

I recently gave this to my brother and his 7 year old kids, since he was unsure of whether his kids would like the game.

The box includes everything you need to start: An erasable flip mat, some paper minis for your characters and monsters, dice, a starting adventure, and easy rules.

It's really too bad this box wasn't promoted more in game shops and conventions, it's a cheap and easy way to get into Pathfinder.


They fixed the flaws!

*****

To anyone who's read the reviews in this page and are bothered by the following:

1. No large bases for the large creature tokens
2. Errata (found in the GM's Kit and Player's Pack downloads)

Note that Paizo has rectified this! I bought the Beginner Box recently and found that there are large bases included in my set, and that the errata has been incorporated in the Hero's Handbook and GM's Guide! So I'm very happy with the product.

On top of these, once you are ready to move on to the full Pathfinder experience via Corebook and Bestiary, note that the smaller softcover Pocket editions fit inside the box with room to spare for dice and minis :)


*****


This Box Rocks!

*****

After I bought the Core Rulebook, I was a bit overwhelmed. So I picked up the Beginner Box next. The rule books made the game much more accessible to me. Rules I didn't quite get from the Core Rulebook were simplified in a way that made sense to me. Also, the introductory adventure was easy to run and the suggestions for expanding sparked my creativity. I liked the explanations the GM's book gave for the several different kinds of adventures and the content that makes them up.


Brilliant way to Introduce New Players

*****

For an explanation of how I use the five star review method, see my entry on So What's the Riddle Like Anyway? HERE.

The Pathfinder RPG Beginner Box uses simplified rules to introduce the game to new players. This is very important as the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook is somewhat…intimidating to people who have never played a Tabletop RPG before. So the objectives of the Beginner Box is to get people who with no RPG experience familiar with the concept, a firm grasp of the basic rules, and have fun doing it. A challenging task…let’s see what they have done with it!

First let’s look at what is included in the Beginner Box. It comes with a cover page to get people reading the right volumes whether they are a player or GM; a Hero's Handbook, covering character creation and the general rules; a Game Master's Guide with a ready to go dungeon, monsters, magic treasures, and advice on how to create your own dungeons and the basics of game mastering; a set of 7 polyhedral dice; a mass of cardboard pawns to mark both heroes and monsters; four pregenerated character sheets; four blank character sheets so you can make your own hero; a double-sided Flip-Mat with a dungeon on one side and blank with grid on the other; and finally a transition guide that explains how to transfer your character over to the full rules version of the game.

Outside of the books, the extras are really great. The cover page is the standard “Read Me First!” type pamphlet you find with any new piece of technology or complicated instructions these days. It points the would-be players in the right directions and gives them an idea of where to begin. A simple, helpful guide. The pre-generated character sheets and blank character sheets look great and are very easy to read. The only problem I can see with them is that they have—by necessity—been designed to work with the limited rules presented in the Beginner Box. This limits their usefulness once the players move on to the full rules.

Flip-Mats are beautiful, time-saving, and great for getting the players to really understand and visualize the action. Having one built for the dungeon provided is a practical god-send. The blank other side is exactly what would be needed for a new GM starting out, so spot on there. A full set of good quality dice plus character and monster pawns to act as placement markers fills out the rest. The dice are an obvious addition, but the pawns are fantastic. Beautiful representations of every monster portrayed in the dungeon provided and the bestiary included in the Game Master's Guide. One extra is a goblin dog, which for some reason does not have stats anywhere. Could have been used for another goblin or orc or something instead. Obviously the stats were originally intended to be in, but something got changed in development. Not a big deal, really.

The Hero's Handbook is wonderful: beautiful art, an excellent solo-adventure to get a newbie understanding the basics of table-top roleplaying games, and simplified rules that explain how to make a character, how they work in game, and how to advance them all the way to 5th level. It begins with a step-by-step guide to filling out a blank character sheet on the inside front cover, a useful reference. After the intro and table of contents, a solo pick-your-path adventure is included to help a newcomer get what players actually do in a RPG session. After that is a sample of play written out so that the reader gets what is goes on with more than just one person playing.

This is a good way to introduce a new player to the game. I’ve seen the sample of play in virtually every RPG from the very beginning with my Tom Moldvay version of Basic D&D. But I like the way it was coupled with a pick-your-path adventure. A new player gets to experience what it is like to play and sees what a games session could be like before starting. A good, practical one-two punch.

The rules section is next and the rules are simplified and pared down so that a new player isn’t overwhelmed. It goes through the character creation process in a bit more detail, keyed entirely to the character sheet. This really helps streamline the process and keeps everything easy to access. Only three races (human, elf, & dwarf) and four classes (fighter, cleric, wizard, rogue) are available, but that’s good; keeping things pretty basic is what this whole product is about. The book guides a player through character creation and levelling up in a very easy to read and understand format. It allows for choice, but limits the number of choices so as not to confuse a new player. It also explains the basic consequences of each choice so that the player doesn’t have to worry about having made the “wrong” choice. It is a very good and easy way to learn.

The rest of the book covers basic adventuring rules and the basics of combat and spellcasting. It is succinct and to the point and there is a glossary of common terms on the inside of the back cover. A combat guide is placed on the back cover of the book, so it really is of great use throughout the game.

The Game Master's Guide has a sample dungeon to run a group through as a first game mastering experience that includes a GM’s version of the map on the inside front cover. It’s a neat little dungeon that includes all the standard tropes found in your average RPG: monsters, traps, treasure, and what used to be referred to as “tricks”: items that can be beneficial or baneful or nothing at all depending on how you interact with them. The dungeon is an ideal training ground both for GMs and players.

The next two sections cover basic methods of game mastering and building adventures respectively. It’s all easy to follow and understand, with sound advice that will really help bring someone new up to speed quickly. It ends with the basic framework for a sequel to the sample dungeon, giving the new GM the opportunity to build the adventure her own way given the tools already presented. It is a good way to get the creative juices flowing; it’s sort of like having training wheels on a bike then removing them.

The next section covers advice on building encounters within unique environments, from underground dungeons to urban settings. It’s followed by a section covering traps, with a good variety available as samples. Next up is a magic treasure section, with images by each of the limited selection of items available. I like this; it’s as if the authors gave recipes for building campaigns and adventures then provide the component ingredients for use. Mix carefully…

Completing the ingredient list we have a selection of low-level monsters follows with random encounter tables for each of the previously discusses environments and how to use them. This plus a setting—Sandpoint—completes the new info section of the book.

After that we get a number of reference pages at the back which are easy and quick to access for rules adjudication. My favorite of these reference pages are the list of conditions: from blinded to grabbed and all the way to unconscious, each of the common conditions found in this limited rule set—and most of those found in the game—are explained clearly and are accompanied by a picture of a goblin afflicted by it. Incredibly useful and cool to look at. The inside back cover has a number of common map symbols to use in making your own maps and the back cover itself has the most common conditions accompanied by a quick combat reference guide and an explanation of cover. All in all, a very useful reference book.

The final book is the Transition Guide, a brief explanation on how to convert your game over to the full rules when you are ready to expand. It’s clear, simple, and a very good aid in expanding to the full rules. But what I really like about the book is the fact that there is a chapter dedicated to converting full rule adventure modules into Beginner Box rule adventures! This is a classy move; with the PRD available for free online, gamers could simply use the Beginner Box without buying anything else should they so choose. By giving advice on how to convert an adventure over, Paizo has made available all the myriad modules and scenarios available for Pathfinder for the Beginner Box as well. They use the free downloadable module Master of the Fallen Fortress as a conversion example and do a very good job of it.

On top of all this are the free to download resources available on Paizo’s website on the Beginner Box page, HERE. They include printable character sheets, both blank and of the pregenerated characters; a Player Pack with a fifth class (Barbarian), new options for the other four classes, new feats, and new equipment; a GM’s Kit with a new small adventure, a few new monsters and magic items, plus more advice on using published adventures; a Pathfinder Society Beginner Box Character Creation Guide, helping let players get involved in the PFS; and Bash Demos—short mini-adventures to get people involved quickly and can act as seeds for bigger adventures. The value of all this simply cannot be overstated.

Final Thoughts: As an introduction to the Pathfinder RPG, this is simply a brilliant product. The Beginner Box has everything needed to help brand new players learn the basics of the game and get a good idea of what tabletop role-playing is all about. With the support it’s been given on the Paizo website and the ability to easily convert all the many low-level adventures out there to this rule set, this is all that anyone needs for quite a lot of adventuring. Add in that the Flip-Mat, pawns, and reference materials will be of use to anyone who plays the game—even the Core Rulebook and beyond crowd—and this becomes an indispensable addition to every Pathfinder player who wants to introduce someone to the game. 5 out of 5 stars.

What exactly is a "pawn" in this context?

Also, glad to see the wizard made it on the core four instead of the sorcerer. Old School.

As much as I would like a copy of this, please please please do not make it part of an existing subscription.

Because it is a game rather than a book (because it contains dice), it will be subject to import tax into the UK (~10% = $3.50). On top of this the post office add a £8 (~$14) 'handling' fee, AND I then have to go and collect it while they are open (~$5 fuel and parking)

So a $35 + postage box becomes a ~$58 + postage box and it is not even delivered directly to me.

As far as non-books are concerned it is NOT a good idea to include non-books in the subscriptions for international customers.

Please don't force me to have to cancel my subscription and re-establish it later just to avoid the costs associated with this.

Antony

I dare say a free or cheap PDF of the books might be an excellent move for recruitment. Barring that, just including a beginner section on the PRD would do the trick.

Man, I want to be a kid again so I can relive that thrill of opening a boxed set and seeing all these new stories and ideas unfold in front of me.

I'm pretty curious as to what they mean by "pawns" myself. I'm hoping for plastic figures rather than tokens or standees, but I doubt it.

Oh my! That would be terrific. If at the very least, make the Hero's Handbook a free PDF to pass out to friends, that would help TREMENDOUSLY to getting the interest of new players. If you can't make it free, a special gifting mechanism where you can pass out four extra copies (for each hero PC), much like gifting co-op games on Steam works.

This looks fantastic and as one who never bought the classic red box, I'm excited to get my hands on this.

As rough as that sounds, I'm sure that the vast majority of subscribers are happy to receive this as part of their normal subscription. I feel for you, because I know how stupid mail can get, but I have a feeling yours is a corner case, and you'll have to take one for the team, either from your wallet or the time you spend cancelling/resubscribing.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

It's going to be more than welcome around here!

Note: The younger ones are less able to deal with "second languages". It might be significant if that product goes through the translations that have been covered for Core. (French, Spanish and German I think?)

Dark Archive

Well to congrats to the Paizo staff for this product and making a very solid effort to get new blood into the community.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

What age groups is this targeting? Is this intended to introduce kids (under age 10 or so) to gaming or more for the preteen/teenage crowd?
I started the Red Box with my Dad when I was 7~8 as my first exposure to gaming. This seems right along those lines but the game was a little simpler back then. Will the language be such that a kid can understand the concepts or will it take a broader understanding of things and/or someone to interpret it to their level of understanding?


Ooooh - nice :) ! I'm getting this one, and my little sis might also find one under the Christmas tree.


I'm curious about the pawns too. Anything is better than the tokens that WotC has decided to implement in their game. I hate being mr. skeptical negative pants, but I hope they don't "change" the classes (ala D&D Essentials.)

Dark Archive

Very cool; my nephew is seven, and he will be getting this box as a christmas present!


This is definitely on the list for my nephew.

Since the pawns are described as "full-color", I sincerely doubt they are plastic.

At the very least, I am pleased that the old school wax crayon has been left out. I always hated coloring my own dice.

Knowing paizo, it is all going to weave in pretty seamlessly. I'm guessing the Beginner Box classes will be a subset of Core, and that you can bring a Beginner Box class to something like, say, a PFS session, and it'll play totally fine.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

W00t!!!!!

Okay, so this is awesome, and I think I'll have to preorder some of these suckers for Christmas. Because, after all, my subscription copy is my copy and get yer stinking paws off of it! I'm just hoping that a preorder is a guarantee and they won't later on go "oh, sorry, we're going to have to limit it to one per customer."

I'm really really really hoping that the 'pawns' are standees kind of like the Pathfinder Paper Minis (though, no offense, I hope it's not the same cartoony artwork). Because I never ever liked the counters that WoTC was fond of. Ugh.

And I also am very very glad it's part of the subscription, though I do feel for those who will be paying extra for shipping.

This and the two Ultimate books and the fall Faiths book and the winter daemons book? This is quite a good year.

So every international customer is a 'corner case'?

I repeat - do not include GAMES as part of a BOOK subscription, alternatively offer international customers an alternative with the $30 dice and other plastic bits removed (you can leave the price the price at $35).

Sczarni RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

I'd like to make a suggestion regarding the dice included in this set (and I fully understand that it may be too late for this). I think it would be very helpful if the dice are all different colors, as opposed to a "complete set" that all match. I have found that for beginning players, it is often difficult for them to pick up which dice are which, especially at first. Being able to say, "The d8 is the blue one," or, "Roll the orange d20 and add your attack bonus," is a big help for someone in their first few sessions.

I can't wait to see this!

To hit that pics point they will need to print a ton. I doubt they will limit the number per customer. Paizo will be very happy to sell additional sets to subscribers. They want this thing to be everywhere.
