Legal races?


Pathfinder Society


What races (Other than the core races) are legal?
Which ones do you need a boon to play?
I want to roll up a new pathfinder cleric but I don't think aasimar or Oread are available.

Scarab Sages

For future reference, the additional resources should list any races other than core.
You can use the Core races, and Tengu, Teifling, and Assimar with the ARG. There are many boon races, such as Damphir, Oread, Gripli, Wayang, Kitsume, Nagaji, and others.

In addition to what Zauron: you can be a Teifling if you have Blood of Fiends, you can be an Aasimar if you have Blood of the Angels.

Scarab Sages

To my knowledge, Blood of Fiends and Blood of Angels is not needed for those races, they just open up more options. Could be wrong though.

Slight thread necro.

Silver Crusade

That is correct. To play a tiefling or aasimar, you must have one of the PFS legal books that gives the details of how they work. That could be the Advanced Race Guide, or it could be Blood of Angels or Blood of Fiends. Your choice.

Bestiary works as well for them.

The Dragon Empires Gazetteer still works for tengu, right?

Currently, yes. Additional Resources does not say you can't use the source for tengu (though it doesn't mention them at all).

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Dragon Empires Gazetteer

Subdomains: Moon; Gods: All gods listed on pages 58-63; Languages: all languages on pages 49-51 may be learned via the Linguistics skill; Races: All human ethnicities are legal, humans begin play knowing all listed languages for their chosen ethnicity as racial languages. To create a kitsune, nagaji, or wayang character, you must have a Chronicle sheet that opens the race as a legal option at character creation.


Are any of the races from the Pathfinder Player Companion: People of the Stars legal to play in PFS?

Check Additional Resources (find the name of the book in question in that page). If the situation on legality changes, checking that page will make sure you have up-to-date info.

Wrong. You need boons to play either of those races. Possession of those books only gives you access to extra mechanics, IF you have one of the aforementioned books. They do not grant access to those races by themselves.

The current campaign guide specifies the standard list of legal races... PERIOD. The only thing that adds to that list are possession of racial Chronicle boons, usually given out at conventions.

An Aspis Consortium Necromancer has tricked you fair Pathfinder, to be fair when he posted that two years ago it was accurate info.
