In this Flip Through Matt takes a look at the Pathfinder Society Primer.  He spends about twice as much time as he normally would because the book was a little different than expected.  The primer is a broad overview of the Pathfinder Society (PFS).  If you think it is just a promotion to play in Paizo’s organized play you  might want to watch this video.

We hope that this has made your decision on become a pathfinder a well advised one.

Developer of the World’s Best-Selling RPG Calls on Players Worldwide to Help Shape the Game’s New Rulebook


REDMOND, WA (November 19, 2013): Paizo Publishing, LLC, publisher of the world’s best-selling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, today launches a worldwide open playtest for the forthcoming Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Advanced Class Guide hardcover rulebook.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Advanced Class Guide introduces ten new classes to the Pathfinder RPG, each offering new opportunities and abilities, and supported with a wealth of new rules, archetypes, feats, spells and magic items. The new classes include arcanist, bloodrager, brawler, hunter, investigator, shaman, skald, slaver, swashbuckler, and warpriest.


“Nothing gets Pathfinder players excited like new classes,” said Paizo Publisher Erik Mona, “but since the rules for class design touch almost every aspect of the Pathfinder rules system, it’s more important than ever that we put them through their paces with a rigorous playtest. I can’t wait to see how Pathfinder players respond to what our designers have come up with, but more importantly, I can’t wait to see how player comments and feedback make them even better!”


Participants in the playtest will be able to download and review all ten new classes, use them in their games, or pit them against monsters and other foes to test the power, balance, and overall clarity of the new classes. Via the messageboards, playtesters can directly communicate with the Pathfinder RPG design team and other players, helping to polish and refine the classes, while also taking part in surveys and brainstorms to help make the Advanced Class Guide a seamless addition to the Pathfinder RPG.


The playtest is now open to all via a free download from, and will end on December 20, 2013. Pathfinder RPG: Advanced Class Guide is slated for an August 2014 release.


The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game launched 5 years ago after 10 years of system development and the largest open playtest in the history of tabletop gaming, with more than 50,000 playtesters contributing the success of what has grown into the best-selling RPG in the world.
