Catching up with Pathfinder / high level Pathfinder campaign


Advice


Hello good people in Paizo land!

It has been quite a while since I've been on these message boards ... since 5e launched, in fact. I have been running a long campaign since then in 5e and it is near to wrapping up. (By near, I mean late October - late November),

For my next campaign, I would like to run a high level Asian/Oriental adventure using Pathfinder. Prior to 5e, I had been running Pathfinder since its launch and have most every hardcover book Paizo released up to that point.

My question is, have I missed anything critical that I need to add to my library before I start prepping for this new campaign? For core books I have: Core Rules, Ultimate Campaign/Combat/Equipment/Magic, Gamemastery Guide, Advanced Players Guide, Bestiary 1-3. I also have the Dragon Empires Gazetteer. As the new campaign will be focusing heavily on dragons and dragon riding, I will be getting the new dragon book when it comes out as well.

I just downloaded any updated pdf's so at least I have one version that's current.

If I have missed anything that you feel should be added, I would like to know. Ultimate Intrigue. perhaps?


Occult Adventures is pretty popular. It's on the PRD for free so you shouldn't need to worry.

Advanced Class Guide has a lot of stuff on the PRD. I heard the Hard Copy has a lot of spelling errors that annoyed some people.

There are two more Bestiaries, also on the PRD. (If you didn't know)


Thanks; I will be getting the new Bestiaries, you can never have too many monsters!


Seconding the Advanced Class Guide. You don't really need to purchase it since of course the SRD is a thing, but the classes within it are particularly good for the most part.


You are covered by what you have, everything else is extra. The mentioned class books are OK, but will collect dust, if nobody plays those classes. If you are planning on going mythic at some point, I recommend the Mythic Adventures book.


Thanks! Will probably skip the ACG but Mythic interests me.

Mythic is terrible. If you do dabble in it, limit it heavily. Otherwise you'll have people 1 shotting demon lords and casting Wish as a SLA 3 times a day, and other hilarity.

Well you can at least check it out on the PRD and see for yourself. I'd probably use it for a one-off adventure, but recreating mythology is just so tempting. Besides, who doesn't want to be a god?
