So, you've got your character. You went and you did some adventuring. Now, it's time to level up. But... how exactly does that work in the new edition of Pathfinder? Well, that's exactly what we get a look at in this preview from Paizo.
From the post:
You've created your character. You've tasted that first bite of toil and heroics, earned your first thousand Experience Points, and come back to town a hero. Is it time to hang up the sword, sidle into the local tavern, and get free drinks for years in return for spinning yarns of your youthful adventuring day?
Hell no. It's time to level up your character so you can do it all again!
This week we're going to examine how you advance your characters in Pathfinder. We are going to start with your young fighter who resists the urge to retire and sit on his laurels and instead decides that adventuring is his jam. Let's start by advancing the hero of our story—a human (skilled) fighter, with the nomad background. Let's call him Kaliban.
