Within this book you’ll find countless player-friendly possibilities as you explore one of the most richly detailed corners of the Pathfinder campaign setting.

The choices are endless, but you'll find the ones that are right for you with this primer to an entire realm of adventure.

  • A player’s guide for the Shattered Star Adventure Path, giving players everything they need to know to create characters ready to face this deadly new campaign.

Great, Player-Friendly Overview of Varisia

5/5

Varisia, the rugged wilderness that contains only a few scattered city-states and several small settlements, is home to five (soon to be six) adventure paths; so it’s only fitting that it receive a sourcebook. Oddly, instead of appearing in the campaign setting line, Paizo decided to make Varisia, Birthplace of Legend a Player Companion book. This means it’s shorter (32 pages) and more focused on options for PCs. Still, it’s a great addition to the canon: full of gorgeous artwork with clear, accessible introductions to the peoples and places that make Varisia a great place to adventure.

The fantastic artwork starts with the cover, the best representation we’ve seen of the Sandpoint Devil to date. The interior front cover is all about Shoanti tribal lands, explaining how the various nations (“quahs”) have different totems and traditions. As it provides cleric domains and oracle mysteries for each quah, it’s quite useful for a player hoping to add some depth to their Shoanti PC. The inside back cover features something about the other indigenous people of the area, the nomadic Varisians. The focus here is on Varisian caravan routes, but the feature most useful to GMs is a grid showing how far (in miles and travel days) it takes to go between most of Varisia’s major settlements by land. I often forget this is here, and I wish I wouldn’t.

The interior has a really fresh, bold art layout that sets this Player Companion apart from previous ones in the line. After the usual table of contents, there’s an overview of which classes get special attention in the book and which options can be made use of by all PCs. Then, after a rules index (perhaps oddly placed near the beginning instead of the end of the book), there’s a two-page overview of Varisia that includes a paragraph on each of the core races and (my favourite) a sidebar on “Five Things Everyone Knows About Varisia.” This last bit is the sort of thing GMs can pass around to new players without overwhelming them with world-lore.

The next two pages focus on the Shoanti. The Shoanti race traits are great, and the section on common Shoanti sayings are quite evocative. My favourite part of the new Player Companion design was the introduction of the idea of “roles”. Roles are essentially flavourful build-suggestions that help a player focus around a key concept—here, it’s “Shoanti Outrider” and “Shoanti Totem Shaman.” The roles include suggested classes, class features, personality traits, and preferred equipment. The nice thing about the roles is that they help players create well fleshed-out characters without simply adding more mechanical bloat.

The following two pages are on the Varisians, and follow a similar format. I’d say the race traits aren’t as useful, but the roles are still interesting: “Varisian Bravo” and “Varisian Fortune-Teller.”
“Battle in Varisia” (two pages) introduces two new feats and two new archetypes. One of the new feats, “Thunder and Fang,” is pretty cool—it allows a character to use an earthbreaker in one hand! The archetypes are “Kapenia Dancer,” a flavourful magus archetype that only comes online at high levels, and “Thundercaller,” a more offense-oriented bard archetype.

“Magic & Faith in Varisia” (two pages) provides short, one-paragraph long overviews of the various arcane schools in the land. I didn’t find this particularly useful, as the information provided is cursory and appears elsewhere. There’s an overview of common faiths in Varisia that includes the mystery cults of Magnimar and the totemism of the Shoanti, but again it’s only the briefest of introductions. A “What is Thassilon” paragraph is nice in answering the “what does my PC know about Thassilon?” question that can easily come up in some APs.

“Equipment in Varisia” (two pages) is a bit odd, as it provides descriptions and stats for weapons (like starknives, bladed scarves, and klars) that have already appeared in the Core Rulebook or Inner Sea World Guide. I guess it’s worth emphasizing them as common Varisian weapons for players unfamiliar with those sources though. Some minor alchemical and spellcrafting items are also introduced here, though they’re all pretty minor and niche in terms of usefulness.

Perhaps the best thing about Varisia, Birthplace of Legend is the pull-out map in the center. The map, which is drawn as an “in-world” artefact, is a gorgeous representation of where major cities and geographical features lay. In addition, it’s quite useful as it provides the distance in miles between each set of landmarks. I’ve happily let my players use this, and I’ve used it myself as the GM when I didn’t have a more detailed “zoomed-in” map available.

Next up, each of the three major city-states in Varisia (Korvosa, Magnimar, and Riddleport) gets a two-page spread. Each of the entries provides the full settlement stat block for the city, a page of general description, two roles for characters from that city, and a couple of new regional traits. Understandably, these entries are just brief overviews, but they’re well-done and give the reader a good taste of how each of the three cities is very different than the other two. Two of the smaller cities in Varisia (Janderhoff and Kaer Maga) receive a similar one-page treatment, with one role and one trait apiece. Finally, Sandpoint and many of the smaller settlements in the area are covered in a single two-page spread; with so many communities to cover, each tends to get only a line or two of coverage.

The next two pages are especially relevant to anyone playing in the Rise of the Runelords, Curse of the Crimson Throne, Second Darkness, or Jade Regent Adventure Paths: new campaign traits! It’s pretty cool to see older APs get support, and I wish this trend would have continued more.

Last up is a two-page player’s guide for the then-new Shattered Star AP. It includes the usual (but important) tips on what sorts of characters are appropriate for the campaign, as well as several campaign traits.

All in all, this is a nice, clear, colourful overview of Varisia. As far as I’m concerned, it should be distributed to everyone playing in a campaign set there.


Useful, if brief, overview of Varisia and its people

4/5

Read my full review on my blog.

As a GM, I have found this book extremely useful in preparing NPCs and general flavour for my Varisia-based campaign. Since there is no Campaign Setting book that covers Varisia as a whole (and I don’t really expect there to be one in the future), this is the next best thing to get a good overview of the types of people who live in the region.

This book also looks good, with great cover art and some really nice interior pieces. I recommend it for anyone spending significant time in the Varisia region.


4/5

I have never had much interest in varisia, neither its inhabitants nor its cities, do this book make me change my mind?, lets see.

The people: There is some good fluff on shoanti and varisians, like the names of the most common shoanti tattoos of every tribe. However, there is no more information about the tribes, I have to look at wikigolarion for the information. The same for varisians, good but too little.

The land: As before, good but too little. What is the point in saying "more details in player companion second darkness"?

The Rules: I have to say that most of the time traits are a waste of space, and that is true for this book. There are a couple of good ones, but a lot are just pointless.

About the feats, Deadly dealer is really cool but it is just weak. Thunder and fang is just great and unique.

Roles: This book present something called "roles". They are like a guide to flesh out your characters.

They have a good side and the bad side. The good side is that they are full of fluff, which is, IMHO, something that player companions to golarion should have in abundance.

The bad side is that they take too much space but do not any new rule. It is a wasted opportunity. A dusk warden is just the same old urban ranger.

If there is not going to be nothing new mechanically, then the class options, preferred equipment and preferred options should not be there.

So far, the book is a solid 4 star. However, the advertisement of APs made in pages 28 to 30 is really annoying and a waste of space that should have been dedicated to more useful things.

So, I give it a weak 4 star.


5/5

I've reviewed this product on RPGGeek.com.

You can find it here.


disappointing

1/5

Having most if not all of the paizo catalog since being a dungeon/dragon subscriber, I've been getting/subscribing to much of their products.

Have to say this one is disappointing. The product is 32 pages long. However, the last 4 out of 5 feel like advertising for other products(the last being an actual advert). The middle is a 2 page map spread that doesnt add much as far as content. The first is the table of contents, the next two are roles for characters which turn to "here are the other products and page numbers where they are".

Which is the biggest complaint I have for this. You scroll through places- lets say City of Magnimar- you get to the end of one page of the two page spread it says "for more details can be found in product pathfinder campaign setting Magnimar, city of monuments" Same with some weapons only to be told for more details to go look in the core rule book or inner sea guide.

Why am I spending money on this product only to be told more details are in other products and places? I bought the product to have all the Varisia items

- What are the mechanics for a paladin obtaining a hippogriff mount?

Same as most other classes, hop on and go for it! The write-up on hippogriffs in Bestiary 2 has a bit on how they function as mounts. Divine bond doesn't factor into this too terribly much (except that you still get an awesome steed in your off hours, which is still pretty clutch for any reputable hero of Korvosa), but shining knight is going to assure that you're one of the best horsemen (bird-horsemen?) in the sky!

Hope that helps!

Is this option still valid?

Would that also be a viable "template" for Paladin and Cavalier Archetypes?

I'm so happy that this book feels more like a primer for players (taking into account their attention span of oh look a butterfly!) and not a "DM Book Lite".

And that the line between Companions and Campaign Setting line isn't as blurry as it used to be.

And that faith/combat/magic/social is done away with.

Great job, Herr Schneider!

I;m not sure who to send this to, but the shoanti map on the inside front cover, the legend only shows 6 of the quah's territories....unless the Hawk and Wind clans have the same territory?

Dark Archive

They both use the same color green which I imagine is a mistake. But if you look there is a line running between them splitting that in two following the river in the middle. My guess is that's the territory boundary and the color on one of them is just wrong.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Lost Omens, Maps, Rulebook Subscriber

I'm loving the new layout. AMAZING!!

My players will love it as it will help some of the newer ones to focus on role playing aspects during character creation, and the older ones to get additional information to help them flesh out characters.

When I think you can't possibly impress me anymore you seem to find a way.

Kudos.

Whoops! Yeah, as Dark_Mistress said, the Wind and Hawk clan accidentally shared the same color and line type in the map, but their territories can be identified by the line running along the river between them.

Damned if you're not right. You can see the boarder for it running up the Chavali river, but the Hawk Clan's color overlapped it totally. There's supposed to be bars denoting that the Wind Clan's territory falls entirely within the Hawk Clan's territory. So, that green is all the Hawk Clan, but that left section is also the Wind Clan

Now that I'm looking hyper close, there's a few other messy lines I'm not digging on here. Let me see if I can get those sorted out here, as I'd love to do another Player Companion "preview" in the coming weeks and a problem-shot version of this map would be great.

Good eye CaroRose! Hope you see those boarders so any future Wind Clan Shoanti you make don't get into any territorial disputes!

Glad you're digging it man! That was really a huge goal of this whole refresh. While you'll still see battle and magic sections every now and then, I want this format to remain hype flexible, so if it doesn't make sense to talk about something, we wont!

Aha! I see the line now. I was distracted by my initial reading and the little paizo junkie on my shoulder going SQWEEEE!

This is going to be the #1 Player Companion for our gaming group. I love Varisia! I also love the new layout. I think there will be something for everyone in our group to love.

....If any Shoanti get into border disputes, we'll send the Spire Clan in to calm things down.

Not sure of the specifics of when the powers that be release PDFs and what now, but if things are different than normal, it's likely because Gen Con starts next Thursday and our August products are meant to debut there.

Release are normally on Wednesdays, yes, but we're tying all releases for GenCon Thursday (next week).

Awesome job Paizo staff! I really like most of the book. The tribal and caravan maps (with distances!) are both very nice. Also the inclusion of more traits is always nice and there are so many more new ones to choose from.

The Thunder and Fang feat just seems a little strong for a feat. Granted it is restricted to just the earth breaker and klar, but the feat tax is more than worth it. Hardest choice for making my Shattered Star Shoanti fighter will be the difficult choice between nontraditional native or serpent runner trait...

Great looking book, love the maps, especially the "In World" centre spread, and the caravan routes.

I'm curious how dangerous some of those are, especially the Sklarkar route that looks like it heads straight into the Hold of Belkzen. (OK, looking at the map again it's just that one I'd have some trepidation following :) )

Some of those routes are very dangerous indeed. Not all Varisian caravans are populated by low-level folks.

If you see a review that you see as concerning, sending an email to webmaster@paizo.com or a PM to a moderator works. We don't take down reviews often enough to have a flagging system for them at the moment.


OK. The usual "begging for free stuff" here:

The book just arrived in the mail today, and has that absolutely BEAUTIFUL 2-page map of Varisia. I want to blow it up, print it, frame it, and hang it on the wall of our gaming room. I love love LOVE it!

But I'm not a subscriber so I didn't get the PDF.

Waaaaaaaaaah!

Any chance you might make that map available to those of us who just appreciate ancient maps and want to print it for our walls?

It's been confirmed in multiple places, including the Shattered Star Map Folio product page and page 2 of this very book (Varisia player companion) that the map in question will be in the Shattered Star Map Folio. :-)

I think what annoys me the most about 1-star reviews or misplaced negativity in general is when the person complains about absolutely asinine points and then claims to "know a little" about the industry or the subject and that's why they're right. This really peeves me.

Really, buddy? You know a little about this sort of thing and so you claim that if there's a delay it should only be for the print version? Wow. This proves you know nothing at all. Well done.

Reviews even themselves out (I actually find five star reviews in which the reviewer cites a list of minor flaws to be more annoying, for some reason).

.
Reviews like this tend to look a little silly and almost forlorn after a little while (when they're surrounded by four/five star reviews). It's not like anyone browsing the site in six months and weighing up whether to buy it is going to decide not to because it came out a week late.

(There's quite an amusing review of the CRB which was posted shortly after it came out. Someone claimed to have casually paged through the book at his FLGS out of morbid curiousity - yet was somehow able to reach the conclusion that PF had fixed none of 3.5's flaws. Reviewing a book of that size from reading it in the shop shows some pretty astonishing speed-reading, in my opinion. :p)

I'm loving the new format as well, but there seems to be an image gaff on page 31 of the PDF: the Gray Maiden is terribly pixelated, the image behind her feet is crisp as anything, so it's just her. Is anyone else seeing this?

The same image in the hard copy is fine, however.
