The best intro product of a TTRPG I have ever played. Recommended continuation: Troubles in Otari and/or Abomination Vaults.


Pathfinder 2e's Beginner's Box deserves its 5 star rating

5/5

I love the Beginner's Box, because it's a great tool for introducing new players, and for new GMs, even those who are familiar with the system. It's meant for someone new to play it each time, whether that's the GM or some of your players. To that end it focuses on introducing new concepts at a great pace, accentuated by the 'how to play' blurbs found in the book. These concepts are introduced in a natural and meaningful way while giving players a room to stretch their legs. By that of course I mean that they can go wild in a dungeon crawl and really show their excitement for learning a new system.

The scenario is a two-session (four hours each usually) dungeon crawl which gradually introduce various mechanics of the game, going from simple things like fighting rats, to gaining loot, to learning consequences of navigating dungeons in a particular way, to skill challenges, and solving puzzles and using knowledge of the area to your advantage.

Each of these things is important to a player, but just as important for a GM to figure out how to manage. It never throws too much at you at once, either as a GM or a player, and so it remains pretty manageable, when you adhere to the four person party recommendation. Five people might get a little claustrophobic.

By the end of it, the players will face their "final exam" of everything they've learned. The players should feel pretty powerful in this one, and I DID make some adjustments when my players were doing particularly well, just to keep them on their toes, which they loved, but don’t go overboard, especially if you’re not familiar with PF2e balancing.

For players: There's not much new stuff for a veteran player, but a first run through will provide a fun dungeon crawl with your friends. It always helps a GM to have someone knowledgeable about the system.

For GMs: Be sure to read how the monsters are played. This is commonly referred to as "morale," and it's crucial that you play your monsters as smart as they're supposed to be. Some of the enemies in this are clever, and some may not have as much experience as others. It's crucial to ensure that you play the monsters as written, especially the final fight. That one CAN be tough, but in the end, your players should emerge feeling like accomplished heroes.

As a closing statement, (though keep reading afterward if you plan to run on Foundry VTT) the Beginner’s Box has great value, and even comes with cool art and pawns, (tokens used to represent the monsters) as well as giving some background lore on the place that you’re in while providing some nice segues into newer adventures as well as good ideas for starting new ones of your own. It also has some magic items which aren’t used in the adventure (unless you want them to be!), some of which even come with art. All in all, massive value from this one, especially if you plan to get into PF2e, or are trying to get someone else into PF2e. My players and I had an amazing time both times, and I as a GM am VERY satisfied.

Another thing for GMs who plan to run this on foundry VTT: PDF to Foundry is a great module for this one, ESPECIALLY if you’re new. Importing the Game Master's Guide PDF that comes with the BB sets up a lot of stuff for you, which is useful, not just to save time, but to learn how walls are used on Foundry, as well as the use of map notes in order to make the gaming experience smoother. However, I should warn you that not everything is immediately laid out, as you’ll still need to place loot, (which just means making a loot actor and dragging the proper items from the compendium – I suggest the Quick Insert module to expedite the process) as well as adjusting certain things to your specific liking, such as lighting and other effects if you’d like. My advice for setting up loot actors is to change the loot actor token from its default treasure chest image, into a blank .png, then place it over the treasure chests/other lootable things on the map, and so what players will simply see is a nice and natural clickable area on the map for them to walk up to and loot. You should play with the VTT before running, and figure out what it does before trying out TOO many modules. You don’t need to port forward anything, so don’t worry in case you’re confused about that. Lastly, if you hit P, you get a useful party overview, which is helpful for managing who has what skills, as well as two very nice buttons in the exploration tab: one to rest the party, and the other to allow players to roll checks and automatically show who succeeded based on the parameters you set. I.e. you ask for a DC 15 athletics check, and people can click on it in the chat and it shows their roll and degree of success. Foundry is very customizable, so it’s easy to go overboard with modules, but do test to make sure every one of them works before getting more.

Thanks, Paizo, sincerely. :)


5/5

The very first adventure any new GM should play. The adventure is written as if you’re brand new to any tabletop RPG so you can run this without having to read the Core Rulebook. It’s learn as you play. The adventure can be completed in two sessions and has its own little bestiary if you want to continue running a game with just the content in this box.

The only downside, however, is that it's not a very heroic adventure. You're pursuing a pretty simple job, there's not much of a narrative, and doesn't really show off what you can do role-play wise.


It raises the bar of what a TTRPG starter set should look like.

5/5

I had been curious about Pathfinder 2e for a while. I read the Core Rulebook and The GM Guide and was excited to start playing Pf2. I was however a bit nervous about how to teach the system to other new players. Or, I was until I got The Beginner Box.

It's got everything you need for the first tiers of play and is beautifully laid out in easy portions that makes the Pathfinder 2e system readily available for players and GM.

Paizo really didn't skim on the quality of the set. It's got a guide for players, that is very handy to pass around the table and a smaller version of The GM Guide that lays out most of the information you need to start playing Pf2 ASAP.

Can anyone tell me exactly how many bases are included in the beginner's box? I'm gonna be bringing the box to a family vacation but would rather wait to unwrap it for packing purposes. I'm gonna have 7 players (I know, I know, too many)and will have scaled up encounters to match and want to make sure I pack extra bases if I need them. I didn't spot a specific number listed and I couldn't quite make out a count from the official unboxing vid, but it looked like too few.

13 plastic pawn bases including a large base. Have fun and thanks for introducing Pathfinder to 7 players!

Errata will be published on this site when a second printing is complete. I have no timeline to share. But I can tell you that I’m trying to promote sales as fast as I can. ;)

I’m confused on the current policy regarding this, Aaron.

With the Advanced Player’s Guide errata were released even though the first printing was still being sold. When I queried it I was told that the “we only release errata when a new printing is available” policy had changed with the release of PF2 (and that the linkage between the CRB was coincidental).

Here though it sounds like it is being adhered to with the beginner box. i wonder if you’d be able to ask around and/or link me to what the current position is? I’d appreciate it, if so.

I've posted about it in the tech and paizo general forums before. I'll go resurrect those threads rather than clog up the Beginner Box thread.

Thanks as always for your help. :)

I received the Beginner Box for Christmas, and it’s such a high quality product. I’ve been playing 2e for a year+ now and have the core books (Core Rulebook, Bestiary, Gamemastery Guide) and a handful of others to boot, so the rules aren’t new to me. But the presentation in the Beginner’s Box is first-class and, most importantly, I was able to open the box and just start playing the game with my second grader (with basically no prep time). I simplified some of the descriptions for him, but he was immersed in the world from the get go and had a blast starting his first 2e adventure. Hats off to Paizo on this one.

Edit: I know this reads like a review, but I can only seem to post to discussion, so discussion is where I post.

not sure if this is the right place to ask, but would it be possible to make the pregen character sheets and the hero's handbook (basically only the rules) publicly available?

the reason I'm asking is twofold, if someone wants to look at the pregens to run the BB on foundry it goes like this: "make an account on paizo.com. find the right item in the store. add it to your account. go to your downloads. then open the zip-file", when it should be "here, let me send it over/give you a link". the pregen sheets don't have a visible watermark, but being tied to an account still makes the legality of distributing them uncertain.
the beginner box on foundry is great, but sadly uses the default character screen (with EVERY option), without any of the great explanations the BB sheets offer. imho the easiest way to prepare players who never played pf2 before is by giving them the sheets and the handbook to look over before they start (and then have something to look up in while playing), which isn't possible with the foundry module unless you want to send out watermarked PDFs (bad idea).

which brings me to the hero's handbook. the character sheets only go so far, for one it doesn't offer the preselected alternatives and explanations in the handbook (which I could replicate as a GM, but would be twice the work for something that already exists and works), the second is once players level up and open foundry or archive of nethys, they are hit with _every_ option in the whole ruleset - while the point of the beginner box is to limit and preselect those to make it accessible to new players.

part of what makes the beginner box so great is the handbook for players to learn the game easier on their own before the first session, but that is sadly lost with the foundry version. worse, usually people only learn a system once, after they've run menace under otari they don't really have a need for the hero's handbook anymore. they could watch a video or check AoN or whatever, but that isn't very intuitive and easy to get into (even with the player's guide AoN provides), something that was commented on especially recently with the influx of new players. it would be much more convenient and accessible for everyone to be able to point them to the official PDFs they can download right away.

if it would be possible to treat the sheets and the handbook kind of like the player's guides for the adventure paths (which I assume have a reason to be freely available without the need of any accounts), it would be a great help for new players and a great tool for GMs to teach the game. the material is already there, and it's fantastic, so why not use it to make it easier for people to get into the game while they need it (they would still need the rest of the beginner box and a GM running it to get most of it, and it's not like the rules are on the internet anyway, just in a different form). even WOTC gives people a simple and direct way to get their quickstart rules.
of course it worked without any of it in the past, but that doesn't mean there isn't potential room for improvement.

it could even be marketed to appear on newssites and social media: "paizo announces the release of the beginner box rules for free, there has never been a better time and better way to learn what pathfinder second edition is about!" and other spins.

TLDR: please consider giving people easy access to the beginner rules and material.

that is all. :)

The pregen character sheets were updated in late November 2020, shortly after the product was released.

Other than that, there haven't been any updates to the PDFs.


Are you guys going to be releasing a remastered edition of the beginner's box? I want to grab this product but I would wait if it was being remastered.

They said the chnages affect the content of the box so little (heck, the box already didn't use the attributes, only using the modifers), that they didn't really need to remaster it.

Since the Beginner Box isn't even on the schedule for remastering, it would probably be 2025 before it even was considered. 2023: Player Core 1, Gamemaster Guide. 2024: Player Core 2, Monster Manual.

As Elftelroh said, the BB had already eliminated Ability Scores. It only has space on the character sheet for the modifiers.

The whole "Alignment" section is only 160 words, and I don't see anything in there that's going to be superseded.

Here's how it describes Alignment,

Beginner Box wrote:

Alignment

Your hero’s alignment is a general indicator of their morality and how strongly they favor consistency or flexibility.

It doesn't talk about the axes any more than that. And it lists six alignments you can choose from, with a quick descriptor (LG, NG, CG, LN, N, CN). Here's how it describes Chaotic Neutral

BB wrote:
Chaotic Neutral (CN): You view creativity and flexibility as essential tools to seize life’s opportunities.

There are only three ancestries (dwarf, elf, human) and four classes (cleric, fighter, rogue, wizard) and none of those seem to be up for remastering.

Clerics are going to need to make some choices, but it's likely to be pretty easy to handwave, since there are only three gods to choose from (Desna, Sarenrae, Torag).

I'd go ahead and buy it and run it as is. Check the Beginner Box forum for errata (there are a couple mistakes in the pregens, and the pregen PDFs were updated almost immediately).


I just realized that the box is out of print. I just submitted an order for it. Any ideas when this will be fulfilled?

I now know why my local card shops didn't have one. :\ I feel like a dolt for ordering it now.


So far, Paizo has not announced a timeframe for releasing a new version. And it's unlikely that they'd reorder a product that will need some editing to bring it into line with the Remastered Rules.

You can still buy the PDF, but I wouldn't expect to see a new physical version until after the next two Remastered rulebooks are released (Monster Core in March 2024, and Player Core 2 in July)

The remastered Pathfinder Beginner Box reprint will arrive late Q1 2024.

We will start promoting it more heavily when we know we have it in the warehouse. All the product numbers will be the same—we’re treating it like an errata update so that the stores that have it on backorder will immediately receive it. It is a minor update and will flow into the Player Core and GM Core.

There will be a tag in the upper right hand corner that says “Second Edition Remaster.” We will work to update our images and web pages.

Upon release, I expect the remastered PDF will be made available for those that wish to download it.

I don't yet know exactly what this means for the various VTT versions and will work to get clarity.

There are no plans to remaster Troubles in Otari as this time.

Does this exist in print version anymore?
I haven't been able to find it and the Amazon store links to an out of print item, which I'm guessing is this.

It has sold out in most places. We are out. It will be reprinted and updated in early 2024. So, not yet.

I'm curious if this means that it will be the same product with minor errata, if it will be aligned fully with the new Remaster rules while being published under the ORC and exist as a wholly new and separate product/SKU, or if it will be somewhere in between.

Upon release, I expect the remastered PDF will be made available for those that wish to download it. The "legacy" PDF will be removed from our store.

I'm looking forward to having this great box updated for the remaster. One thing since you mention the remastered PDF, I just wanted to pass along some encouragement to whoever is in charge of such things that if there is anything that can be done to make the PDF files more stable than the current PDF, it would be great.

I'm not sure if it is just me, but I find that when I open the current PF Beginner Box Game Masters Guide (which happens a lot as I am running Menace Under Otari for two groups), the file struggles and crashes way more often than the PDFs of my much larger books do.

And before anyone asks, yes, I have tried refreshing/re-personalizing/re-downloading the file multiple times, and yes, I am using the fully current and legal version of Adobe Acrobat Pro.


Pathfinder LO Special Edition, Maps, Pathfinder Accessories, PF Special Edition Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Starfinder Superscriber

Hm. I've never had a problem with that file. OTOH, I don't usually use Adobe Acrobat Pro, I use Apple's Preview.


I use the BB GM pdf all the time; it's pretty much the only way I access that info.

I have never had any problems. I open it as a tab in Firefox, and there are no loading or display problems.

It's not technically a new release, but a reprint... probably will not be on that list.

And "late Q1" is only ending in two months.

The Release Schedule page goes out through May, 2024 but I don't see the Beginner Box listed as an upcoming release.

Any updates for us?

It's not technically a new release, but a reprint... probably will not be on that list.

And "late Q1" is only ending in two months.

Right. Reprints are not listed as new releases, but our plan is to wrap it into the March New Releases blog, if all goes well. I am excited for it to be back in stock, as it is such a good on-boarding tool.

As an aside, Pathfinder Troubles in Otari Adventure, Rusthenge Adventure, the Free RPG Day Adventures, Bounties and certain Society Scenarios are still our best entry-level products. None are remastered, nor have we announced plans to do so, as they are all still Pathfinder.

I ran this twice at Megacon Orlando this year. Once I borrowed a VL's box and really enjoyed being able to use the map and pawns. I look forward to being able to get a reprint when it comes out.

I've updated this product so you are now able to preorder the REMASTERED version of the Beginner Box! Our stock arrival is imminent, so we're collecting preorders and should also be contacting anybody who has an outstanding order for the Beginner Box in the coming days.

The cover image of this product has been updated, but any updates to the description text will likely come tomorrow. Also coming tomorrow: updated files! I'll be sure to send out an email when the upload is finished, so that anybody who already has the digital version will be notified once the new files are available for download.

Let the hype commence!

Glad to hear there is so much interest with Remaster. I cant make promises, but I know WE are just as excited to get them in our warehouse and out to people as fast as we can.


The Beginner Box is a fantastic product and a great value, even after a $5 price bump.

Very curious to see the remaster changes. I feel like they could be a little as a few spells renamed, or they might go as far as swapping out some of the pawns (drow, owlbear).
