We're always looking to the future. Paizo certainly is, as they're planning on coming out with a new Beginner Box for Pathfinder in November. Is that a long way away? Sure it is. But I can't wait for it. That's my favorite time of year. But Thanksgiving aside, we'll also be able to pick up this new set to get your friends into the game quickly and easily.
From the post:
New players will soon be able to take their first steps into an amazing world of fantasy adventure! Unveiled for November 2020, the Pathfinder Beginner Box will contain everything you need to learn how to play the Pathfinder, including rules to create your own fantasy hero and tools to make your own amazing stories.
Will you be a courageous fighter, charging headfirst into battle, or a sly rogue, moving quietly to strike at foes from the shadows? Maybe you will be a knowledgeable wizard, wielding incredible arcane spells or a wise and pious cleric, using the power of your deity to shape the world for the better. It is all up to you!
Inside you will find a rich toolbox, filled with everything you need to get started, including rules for character generation, an introductory adventure, guidelines to build your own campaign, character sheets, a full-color map, character pawns, and dice. This deluxe box set will be the ideal introduction to the Pathfinder, leading the way to a lifetime of adventure!
The Pathfinder Beginner Box will include:
- An 80-page Hero's Handbook, including rules for character generation, a solo adventure, skills, spells, and equipment.
- A 96-page Game Master's Handbook, containing an introductory adventure, over 20 pages of monsters, rules for building your own adventure, and magic items.
