No More Required Rulebooks for PF2 APs!

Bestiary 3 is the last book Pathfinder 2e Adventure Paths will assume you own. As a GM who exclusively runs Adventure Paths, this is exciting news!

I just got Secrets of Magic, and Guns and Gears will likely be the last rulebook I get a physical copy of. The next rulebook is Book of the Dead, which indicates to me books in that line will get increasingly niche, like the Lost Omens books did post-Ancestry Guide.

Thanks to tools like Archives of Nethys, I am content with only owning physical copies of the rulebooks I consider essential to portraying the world of Golarion (i.e., they have enough broad applicability).
