I've just started playing PFBB with my kids and I'd buy a Sandpoint Box day of release!

Me too! I want it badly!!


That's an awesome idea!
Why didn't I think of this? ^_^

A campaign in a box is a grand idea. Especially focused on 1-5 or 1-7 level play, detailing adventure sites and the like. Collating information from Rise of the Runelords and Jade Regent, with pawns and maps.

It's a great idea and I would definitely buy it.


We love Sandpoint, between the card game, beginner box and the adventure path we spend a lot of time there.

I think for my kids its like Homlett was to me.

I would be all over this set. I stopped running BB because there is no adventure support.In fact I just sold all my PF hardcovers and adventures last week because I have no desire for a game as complex as core PF, and stripping core adventures down to BB is more work than coming up with my own material to run. I am not a novice by any means, I started playing in the 70s with the LBBs, I just hate running 3.x full blast. Especially for the kids group (my 13yo son and his peers) who have no desire to learn complicated systems and get analysis paralysis with too much going on (we now mostly play a OD&D/S&W houseruled mashup, but we started with the PFBB nearly 2 years ago! )

I did keep my Beginner Box though because it is a fantastic product I believe in, hopefully this Sandpoint boxed set and other adventure material will surface for the BB! :)


I think it would be a great idea. I'd want it. One of the things I've run into with the BB set is not being able to get the experience (as a GM or a player) to prepare me for the Core Rules. A nice campaign boxed set with a companion book designed to be a transitional tool would be great.

Perhaps each adventure would add a component of the core rules into it so that the GM and players would have an easier time moving over?


So I was just watching Youtube videos of the Adventure Card Game to help me decide if I want to get it when I had an idea! It'd be really neat if this Sandpoint Box contained the other Perils of the Lost Coast stories from the card game (Brigandoom, The Poison Pill, Blackfang's Dungeon). :D


A box set like this would probably push me over the edge in switching from D&D to Pathfinder.


So.... This thread's got a bit of life in it. I'll be ordering two more beginner boxes for Christmas, one for my sister's kids and one for the son of one of the guys in our group... What I'm trying to say is that I would buy many Sandpoint boxes, were they to be made.

I'll throw my hat in the ring as a person who has never purchased the BB and probably wouldn't unless for my girls. But a Sandpoint box, from the POV of the fact that I'm a busy guy w/out a lot of time to dream up campaigns/worlds and here's a fully fleshed campaign starter complete with maps, handouts and other goodies.

So when's the release date...


This needs to be made now...

A campaign box set would be awesome.


do it already!!!!


I vote! I vote! We need Sandpoint box!


I'm imagining two booklets like in the BB.

Book 1: Sandpoint booklet. A detailed overview of the town. Pretty self explanatory.
Book 2: Perils of the Lost Coast booklet. The full level 1-5 mini-campaign/module, hinted at in the card game and comics, that follows the dungeon introduced in the BB. :D

Also lots of pawns of the common townsfolk would be so incredibly useful!


When can we pre-order this, please? :)


okay, do it! also make sand castle molds for sand point for a beach toy set! relief casting mold of squashed goblin that comes with green food colouring spray... okay just the boxed set...

Throwing my vote in for this as well.

I've got four little gamers and they're killing me with the PFBB requests. Sandpoint box set now comes in ahead of Geb/Nex on my wish list.

Is there any way this could be a community effort? Wayfinder's been doing in-setting BB stuff under the community use license. If there's no official plans to do a Sandpoint box...

That'd be cool too but I want an actual physical box. There's just something about having one that's special. Also pawns. >.<

I too love the idea and would buy such a box.

I am always more a fan of encyclopaedic material than mere crunch. Golarion has so many opportunities. I liked the background information in the original RotRl series a lot but was underwhelmed with "Varisia, Birthplace of Legends".

Compared to the Forgotenn Realms or the German Aventurien, Golarion is still a world hard to imagine; it does not invoke pictures with real depth in my brain.

I think that's the point, so that it doesn't become as convoluted as the Realms.

That being said, my North box set for the Forgotten Realms sees so much use, whether for play or personal enjoyment. I'd support a product like this for Sandpoint and Varisia.

I would buy a Sandpoint Box Set in a heartbeat. There is so much incredibly rich potential in that area I actually find it hard to believe it hasn't been done yet. There are oceans, mountains, forests and, most importantly, dragons. Take my money!

Add me as another who'd buy this in a heartbeat...


I'd buy it.

Since I got the BB I've used Sandpoint as the starting town for all my adventures, even the one that takes place in Forgotten Realms :)

A Sandpoint Box would help bring it to life for my players even more.


I wonder if Shadows Under Sandpoint would make good BB fodder.

Methinks it would.

A trilogy of boxes, perhaps?

Kaer Maga box? Hell Yeah! :)

We haven't had gaming money for a couple years due to my husband being unemployed and then underemployed. But about a month ago, my daughter asked us to teach her to play with us. We had the D&D Beginner Box from way back at the beginning of 3.0 when I was teaching my little sister to play and we were going to just take the materials from that and convert it to Pathfinder. And then we saw the BB at a game store while we were out last weekend. It was a no-brainer to save ourselves the conversion work. And when we opened the thing, it was so impressive. I don't know how many of you ever got a D&D Beginner Box, but it was lame compared to this one. So I love the materials in it and after a couple game sessions, my daughter (who is 6) has been doing a good job of getting the hang of things and learning her way around the character sheets. I had actually come to the Paizo site today to look for PDFs of the beautiful character sheets from the box when I saw the follow-up adventures available here as PDFs. I'm getting all the free stuff they've got and I'll wade through it to keep us going. But, at the end of the day, my daughter is only 6. Even if she gets a character to 5th level or 10th level or beyond, her capacity to understand all of the Core Rules is limited. So expansions on the Beginner Box would be of great interest to us. And particularly a Sandpoint Box with more adventures there. When I showed her the maps in the little GM book, she was really excited to finish in the dungeon and go explore the town. And while I can roll with that, having 20ish years of experience under my belt, I also really like the structure of planned adventures and such. Plus, we plan to try to buy some of the Pawn Boxes because we are so impressed with the pawns from the Beginner Box. So if there were pawns of various Sandpoint NPCs, that would be awesome.

Basically, as a parent teaching a young child how to play, any support for BB rules is going to be welcome. And box sets really speak to the cash-strapped cheapskate in me. So I definitely want to add my support for this idea in here.


Perhaps a BB guide to Sandpoint would be a good community project?

I have several 'sandbox' adventures for the BB that I would contribute.

This idea is so awesome... I'd like it for a few other cities as well. Instead of Beginner Box Set call t a City Box Set and include a four page map of the city as well as a notable place (like the Rusty Dragon) in it. This is an awesome idea. I wholly approve!


I just started reading the pathfinder comics and there is a lot of information in the back pages to make a gazetteer. Issue 12 even has stats for Thelsikar (CR6 BTW).

I'd buy dat Sandpoint Box Set. I don't even like Sandpoint, but I'd buy 2 to give Paizo the impression that a Kaer Maga set was worth development time.


I also put in my two cents and say I'd buy a sandpoint boxed set. Make it so!

SANDPOINT BOX
Hell yeah, I am old school so any Box set is good. But A starting point for any DM/GM is a mega step in the right direction.

Throw in say a PF Directors Screen, a few booklets on Campaign construction, Sandpoint, CD with blank forms, Generic Urban, wilderness & dungeon map packs.

Flow charts and capmaign adventure parth style design development construction ABC's and you should be go to go. Some blank but form styled Index cards, for NPC, Creatures, Character Summary-to match up with the Game mastery Friens & Foes ect

It sounds great, I also have a couple of adventures of my own, around Sandpoint that can contribute to this

Erik when will the pre order for the Sandpoint Box Set ready? Hint Hint


Not only would I buy this, it would also make me buy the Beginner Box.

It's not on the schedule, it's not something I've even really discussed with folks, but it's a damn good idea.

Okay Eric,

You've had nearly a year. Where is it!?!?!?!


Please DO IT!
I would buy it in a second!!! :)


This would be fantastic...... I'd buy it


I am a foster parent and potentially adopting (again) so I have a group of young girls that Ive already turned on to boardgaming. Purchasing a BB and Sandpoint boxed set would definitely be an immediate pickup. I want to introduce them to all the gaming hobbies that I have enjoyed and this would be a perfect family night thing.

I dont think Im alone in that there are many parents who grew up playing RPGs and are now in a position to bring their own children into the gaming culture. I think its a great idea to expand on the BB and even in general provide further boxed sets of key cities and other areas. I was a big fan of boxed sets for DnD and see no reason it would change for Pathfinder.


I vote for including a 14 - 25 page document similar to BB 'Transitions/GM kit' that expands the Beginner Box core classes up to level 10 adding 4 pages of new spells and several pages of new feats and skills. If Paizo did this, IMO this product would appeal to BOTH the core PF crowd and those who want more rules for the Beginner Box and are interested in using that as their main rule set. It would be the perfect 'intermediate' product without creating a separate Beginner Pathfinder line of products.

If Paizo had already released a Sandpoint Box, they would be at least $40 richer by now. I'll say it again - love the Beginner Box and would welcome any further expansion on it!

The Exchange

Any official response at all? I would love to have a Sandpoint Box, and could see boxes for many of the areas from the various adventure paths....could probably be cut and pasted from current productions and expanded at the lower range of levels...


Well the fact that they haven't ruled it out is encouraging. Sort of...

How out a Kickstarter to get this going! I for one would LOVE to help fund this! Let's see if we can get this going!

+1 for a community project. The guys doing Wayfinder magazine already did som BB stuff for it, maybe a special BB edition?

Level 6-10 rules could probably be done with the OGL. Build it from the PRD and add it to the PFBeginner srd too!

I'd buy anything that gave us more stuff to use with the Beginner Box. And Sandpoint is awesome, so that would be a good place to start!
