Being an adventurer is a dangerous line of work, but the rewards are well worth the risk. The smartest adventurers never go it alone—they not only bring allies to help explore the dangerous reaches of the world, but also seek aid in the form of support, supplies, and secrets from powerful organizations. With such a group to serve as a guide, an adventuring party's chances for success have never been better!

Pathfinder RPG Adventurer's Guide presents several such organizations, each with its own suite of benefits and boons to grant those affiliated with it. Designed for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and drawing upon the rich traditions of the official Pathfinder campaign setting, this indispensable guide for adventurers provides a wealth of new character options for your game.

Pathfinder RPG Adventurer's Guide includes:

  • Details on 18 different organizations that use adventurers to further their goals, including the law-enforcing Hellknights, the sinister assassins of the Red Mantis, and of course, the world-renowned Pathfinder Society itself.
  • A wealth of new player options, including feats, spells, magic items, prestige classes, archetypes, and new abilities and powers for a wide range of classes.
  • Rules and advice on how to incorporate the new options found in this book into your own game, whether it takes place in the official Pathfinder campaign setting or in a world of your own choice or design.
  • Notes on the movers and shakers of each organization—nonplayer characters who can come alive in your game as allies and advisors for the player characters.
  • AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!

Deepens My Investment in Golarion

5/5

I didn’t expect to find such a connection to this book, having not played the APs that touch on the various groups contained herein (and also just generally hating hellknights), but hoo-boy was I surprised.

The writing is lovely, the characters and organizations are vivid, and the player options are exciting and well-designed. The gray maidens chapter in particular blew me away in particular. The mechanics of their player options are a pedect combination of flavorful and mechanically effective, and have the added bonus of fitting together into a coherent and effective character build.


Great Book!

5/5

Read my full review on Of Dice and Pen.

These days, it can take a lot for a book focused on new feats, spells, etc. to impress me. I’ve reached a saturation point. There are so many options now that I can’t keep track of them all, and most new ones get forgotten soon after I read them. Adventurer’s Guide is one of the few books that stays in my mind and keeps pulling me back to it. I can’t recommend it enough!


The worst core line offering by far

1/5

The title is misleading, as was posited by many during the product preview, and mealy-mouthedly denied by Paizo. This is a Golarion book, period, which has no place in the core line, and the contents consist of an insultingly large percentage of reprints. Shameful, really.


Good Product if New

4/5

Soooo...I'm going to say that I obsessively collect Pathfinder products, and as such, much of this material is old hat for me. Emphasis here is 'for me.' With that said, I want to examine this in a vacuum.

The artwork is good, but then, it's been good. It serves more as a 'Faction Guide 2' for me than anything, giving some details about the various organizations, class options, feats, and ties. In particular, though, I like that I don't have to flip through two or three books to get character options for the factions. Hellknights in particular were always a pain due to how diffuse their rules were. I can now hand this book to a person and say "here ya go. Here's some ideas of factions in the setting."

One drawback, as has been mentioned, is spoilers for the various APs. While I use those sparingly, it can be somewhat problematic, and I'd suggest steering players away from this if that's the case.

Overall, it's a decent enough product. If you're new to the setting, it's worth picking up as a nice collected list. If you're old hat, a few options inside are interesting enough, and a few setting updates are worth examining. I'm particularly interested in the Lantern Bearers' new direction.


Solid addition with some faults

4/5

This book helps clear up and collect a lot of older material, balanced now with other released material for GMs. It also adds in a wealth of new material for factions of Adventurers across Golarion.

What's good?
A solid collection of old and new under one singular heading.

What's bad?
Some factions contain major spoilers, making it hard for a GM to just pass off to players who may be playing certain APs.

What's fun?
Inclusion of multiple races and creeds and even transgendered factions and npcs in multiple parts of the book. This book really fleshed out some factions which had little to no crunch.

What's odd?
Certain feats are fun but others are less the useable. A feat that allows a bonus on maneuvers but doesn't stack with improved maneuver feats? Those are the ones that help avoid AoO. So what's the point of the feat? Additionally a heads up to some people about the amount of reprints would have calmed an angry section of customers.

Honestly I love the book and can't wait to try out some of the new material and some of the updated versions of older (and due to other books options more unbalanced) options.

When you get past the salty tears of angry optimizers, you're left with a fine entry into the guides section with Inner Seas flavour.

Hmmm. None of the ten listed organizations have any particular psychic or Vudrani focus... but the writeup says we are getting 18 total.

That said, I can't think of any significant psychic or Vudrani organizations which have been introduced thus far. So, unless we get a completely new group, probably not too likely.

We haven't released that level of detail yet on the book's contents, but there are some options in here for classes from Occult Adventures, yes.

I have been waiting a LOOOonnnggggg time for more information on the Cypher Mages.....I wonder if they are revising the PrC ???

Well, each organization is getting "at least one prestige class". So... either revising the old one from Second Darkness, getting a brand new one, or maybe both.

As far as I know, there only ever was the one Cyphermage prestige class (found in Inner Sea Magic). And that's already Pathfinder content (as opposed to 3.5).

The two Cyphermage-related feats (originally in the Second Darkness Player's Guide) were updated to PF in the Inner Sea World Guide.

On the other hand, only one of the four Cyphermage-related spells in the SD PG have been updated to PF (Codespeak, found in Ultimate Intrigue).

So yeah, more information on the Cyphermages would not be amiss ...


so they took the 10 page chapter 4 from the old pathfinder chonicles campaign setting book and super-sized it into it's own 192 page book with new and expanded options...cool.


This looks like a potentially saucy product ... can't wait! Wondering which 6 organizations round out the final 18? James Jacobs or Erik Mona ... are you guys able/allowed to tell us the final 6?


i have a question:

there will be the Anaphexias?

i would love to know more about them


Damn, a step backwards in my opinion.

There are still many way's to fight that are not covered by the rules and there are so many rules that have been a little broken since the Core rulebook was released. The only characters that fight with one handed weapons, for example, are the ones who can cheeze them with some kind of special attack (magus, Swashbucklers). I'dd love to see some oe-handed fighting feats. Also, Two-weapon-fightting still needs help.

Isnt it time for an updated core rulebook?

Im not saying pathfinder 2, nor am I saying Core-rulebook 2. Im saying a new Core rulebook for this very same system, with some new generalized feats and some class updates.

It seems we've reached the point of exhaustion for new crunch, therefor the pathfinder crunch book line is delving deeper and deeper into Pathfinder's campaign setting, which is a big turnoff for me.

... I wouldn't call the classes' main abilities "cheeze". Fighting one-handed is their thing. Fighting styles for other characters that only want to use a one-handed weapon? Sure. But the classes that have it as their shtick aren't cheezing it simply because they exist.
tsuruki wrote:

You are very mistaken.


tsuruki wrote:

There's also sword-and-board for players who like high ACs more than high damage. That's being encouraged for Occultist by a new option from Psychic Anthology. Also, some classes only get martial proficiencies with one-handed weapons (Bard, Mesmerist, and Investigator). One-handed is the best choice for finesse builds, since there are several finessable martial one-handed weapons with better damage than light weapons.

tsuruki wrote:

My favorite is Possessed Hand, which is one-and-a-half feats with some perks rolled in, so long as you're using a one-handed weapon at most.

tsuruki wrote:
Also, Two-weapon-fightting still needs help.

The way to help TWF is generally class features, not more feats. It's feat intensive, after all. Anything that adds lots of damage on an attack (sneak attack, hidden strike) or removes the feat burden (flurry of blows) benefits it. If you're interested in more feat chains, though, Hand's Autonomy can further reduce TWF penalties and provide lots of utility benefits.

tsuruki wrote:

Not really feasible to do that way. There's a decade of material based on the current Core Rulebook, and changing that breaks everything. It would need to be a separate book just to avoid breaking all the references. Once you get that hurdle out of the way, it's starting to sound a lot like either the Pathfinder Unchained book or the Advanced Class Guide.

Pathfinder Player's Companion just came out with an Occultist who uses ostentatious displays of wealth for arcane power (probably the best dedicated 6/9 caster), a cool new Spiritualist phantom and a nice melee casting archetype, tons of new Kineticist options, and some major improvements on Mesmerist's playstyle. Upcoming, we've got more rules for underwater games and an Adventurer's Armory 2. And if you want a blank slate, you can always see if you like Starfinder. Maybe backport some of the rules, race, or class changes you like.

No, we've only reached a point of exhaustion for on-line reference sites to keep up with the new content. I am hoping that they will all eventually catch up.

Actually a little more fleshing out of the whole "Wizads who have opposite goals" part of that whole conflict would suit me fine. Are the Riftwardens picking and choosing their battles or are the knee deep in the Worldwound? Are the Blackfire Adepts more interested in just acquiring power or is there a grand plan? Is the Worldwound an obstacle to the Blackfire Society or is it all part of the plan? I can imagine that a giant hole in the universe that they don't control is a giant pain in the ass for the Blackfire Adepts

Thing is, that just says to me that Paizo has gotten confused when it comes to the lines. Because those things make a lot more sense to be in RPG-line books, and this golarion stuff makes a lot more sense to be in Campaign setting books and player companions.

Player's Companion and Campiagn Setting are two different lines.


He's saying player companions should be Golarion-centric player options that are flavored to that world, not generic class improvements like the Silksworn and Mesmerist stare/trick feats which would be great to share with the wider ecosystem via the RPG line. Both would have fit in nicely in Ultimate Intrigue and been a lot better than feats letting you ask for the salt so politely at the dinner table that they might also give you the pepper if your Diplomacy is high enough.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Ah, but the problem with that is there a lot of Player Companions, but only so many Rulebooks put out each year. As for the "generic improvements" the whole point of Player Companions is to play around with and improve the stuff we have.


The Player Conpanion line is much more crunch-heavy than the Campaign Setting line - so they will always have more opportunity for "generic" content as part of their overall offering. While the Player Companions are intended to provide Golarion-appropriate options for players, and sometimes even Golarion-specific ones, they are not limited to that.

Some crunch requires supporting generic crunch first, and if that's not in the RPG line, then it needs to be in the Player Companion with the stuff it is there to support.

Several Player Companions do this.. Heroes of the Wild, Black Markets, Undead Slayers' Handbook, Demon Hunters'... all have rules content that could be in the RPG line.

On-Topic, I look forward to seeing how the Cyphermages compare to my homebrew version of the organization. I am also curious to see how the Lantern Bearers compare to the version in the Faction Guide. I was disappointed that the "Influencing Organizations" rules in Ultimate Intrigue were so different from the rules in the Faction Guide, Inner Sea Combat, Inner Sea Magic, and Occult Mysteries (Fame/Prestige based like PFS, but for non-PFS games).


Hmm... 18 factions. Probably nothing on the Technic League. I mean, on the one hand, it makes sense since the TL would probably necessitate reprinting and/or expanding on the Technology Guide, but on the other, I do kinda want to learn more about them. Plus, I mean, there are some organizations of bad dudes here.

But they are kinda local and not exactly major players in a lot of other regions.


The Technic League would have the least utility for adapting to a non-Golarion setting, which is another big reason we won't see it.

The problem is that there all ready is a line of books that introduce Golarion-centric player options. Its the Campaign Setting Line. Those books usually when relevant introduces more mechanics into the game than a lot of Player Companions. In fact the Golarion-Centric player option book for Ultimate Intrigue exists and its so much better than the Player Companion equivalent.

Its not like they didn't adapt the concepts that helped form the Technic League from a completely different setting.

Yeah, since the Technic League is basically "Evil psychotic dumbasses find crashed spaceship" you could put them in any setting where you have a crashed spaceship.

So anyway....

(quietly avoids this stupid debate about setting vs generic)

Anyone wanna spit ball what other organizations might be covered in this book? Also, how crazy would it be if PFS approved an Apsis Archetype for play LOL?

Or "Power-hungry brutes meddling with concepts beyond their comprehension", which can go into any setting that plays with Clarke's Third Law a bit. Or "Secret society attempting to withhold wonders the like of which the world has never seen" which... I mean, is there a setting where that particular group wouldn't work? Just because the Technic League isn't especially great at it doesn't mean you couldn't have a more competent (or Lawful or even Good) version of them dedicated to keeping technology a secret (Lawful Evil TL would be all about controlling it, like the current TL is, but with the addition of a better-managed hierarchy, while I could see a Neutral Good TL being more interested in sequestering technology away until it's able to be used by everyone in society, keeping it secret so that some dumbass warlord doesn't conquer half the world with an army of laser-wielding murderbots).

One without a very specific form of future tech that follows the rules of Paizo's tech guide. Which seems like a large majority of settings. This is a rules line book, and those are the least generalizable rules.

They can use the tech in that book, they don't have to though. It's just equipment.

Dark Archive

The Technic League, Aspis Consortium and Pathfinder Societies are just three edges of the same blade, organizations dedicated to uncovering sources of knowledge and power and keeping them to themselves.

The Technic League is just a highly specialized organization, dedicated to one specific source of knowledge and power, confined to one region, while the Pathfinder Society and Aspis Consortium are more trans-national and open in their 'gather and hoard all the things' approach.

They *might* have different end-goals, as well, but nobody knows what the Decemvirate actually wants, so it's not particularly relevant to the story whether they are benevolent 'protect the people from bad knowledge' sorts or acquisitive power seekers who just use the Pathfinders to bring them more lost lore and magic bling. As long as the missions get done, it really doesn't matter whether or not you're bringing the lore and bling back to your superiors in the League, Society or Consortium (or Whispering Way, for that matter). You'll never find out what happened to it, in any event.

They're the tabletop equivalent of an MMO's 'quest NPCs,' there to point the PCs at adventure, and take anything potentially unbalancing or game-wrecking off their hands at the end.

And feats tied to tech. And a prestige class based around tech. And spells that interact with tech.

My point, which should be entirely uncontroversial, is that the Technic League is the least portable to most other settings for both flavor and rules reasons and therefore is the least likely to be in the book. I hope it is, since I like Golarion and tech, but if they're going to cut something I would expect this to be low on the priority list.

I don't know if I'd go as far as least likely, at least without giving it some thought. But they're definitely close.


They shouldn't use mechanics from the technology guide since, even if it's on the PRD, it's not an RPG-line book.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Technically, I believe its presence on the PRD is the determining factor, rather than which line it's from. It just seems like that sort of reference is RPG line-only because, other than that book, everything on the PRD is from the RPG line. (At least so far - there are murmurs that Aquatic Adventures might be added to the PRD as well.)

Personally, I wish Campaign Setting hardcover books like Inner Sea Gods were on the PRD; I'd love to be able to reference Deific Obedience and the boons. ^_^


Yeah, Inner Sea Gods is in this weird position where it's too useful not to have, but way too expensive for me to justify actually buying it. If it were RPG line and 9.99 for the PDF I'd go for it, but all the really important stuff is on the free sites and I don't need all the pages about the gods at this point.

I'm still hoping we get substantial previews before the subscription auths. Otherwise I'll probably do the same, and maybe get only the pdf. If we get previews early enough to know what level of golarion is actually infecting the rpg line, it will help me decide better. I can handle setting fluff on par or a bit more than bestiaries, but if it's player companion levels of golarion, it's not something I really want a hardback of.
