Wanted: Index


Playtest Reports

Dark Archive

During playtesting (which has gone really well, players and I love new rules) I kept coming across the same problem:

No Index.

It made play really slow. I have other problems with this as well (it also made dungeon designing difficult) so yeah...

I told my players that, clearly, Paizo wouldn't be so stupid as to not add an Index in the actually published game, but my players pointed out several good examples as to why this just simply couldn't go unmentioned, and so, I now mention to you:

PLEASE have an Index in the actual core rule set; both the Handbook and Bestiary. Oh PLEASE!!!

Thank You.

As someone who has actually compiled indices, I understand how hard they are to create, but a good index makes a good book, GREAT.

I implore you to take Goblins' suggestion.


If I remember correctly, there will be an Index in the Core Rulebook. I can't say if the MM will have one, but my guess is that they will also make sure that it has an index too!

Charles did one for the beta.
Yes, the new rules will have indexes.


Here is the thread with Charles Evans' beta index. If you scroll down a few posts Fray also did a formatted version.

And here is the thread where Vic Wertz confirmed there'd be one in the final book.
