Fantasy RPG Pathfinder 2E is getting a new beginner box

Believe in your ‘elf.

Learn how to play fantasy RPG Pathfinder with the upcoming Pathfinder Beginner Box, which will contain absolutely everything you need to get started with the system - both as a player or a game master.

It will include a player handbook featuring character generation rules, a solo adventure, skills, equipment and spells. You’ll be able to use one of four pre-made characters, or write out your own on one of the included character sheets.

A game master’s guide - which will contain an introductory adventure plus a host of monsters and magical items - will also feature as part of the beginner box.

In addition, you can visualise epic battles aplenty with over 100 character and monster pawns, which will be included alongside a full-colour adventure map.

Last but not least, a set of polyhedral dice will also feature as part of the set.

One of the best tabletop roleplaying games out there, Pathfinder is based on Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 and is more mechanically crunchy then its fantasy predecessor.

It was recently nominated for the Origin Awards and its first edition is the second most popular online tabletop game on digital RPG platform Roll20.

Currently on its second edition, it was created in 2008 by Paizo Publishing, which previously worked on D&D magazines Dragon and Dungeon and also created Pathfinder’s sci-fi counterpart, Starfinder.

The upcoming RPG Pathfinder Beginner Box is due in November and will cost $39.99 (£34).
