Pathfinder 2e Landing Page

Tools

  • Rules: Archives of Nethys is a free official database that contains all the rules for the game. No books required! You can also use PF2 Easy, which is much more feature-rich.
  • Character Creation: Pathbuilder 2e makes it possible to create characters in 15 minutes or less. It is available for web browsers and Android devices.

House Rules

  • Free Archetype: Use the Free Archetype rule from GMG 194.
  • Timed Turns: In combat, if a player takes more than 1 real-time minute to declare their actions, they automatically Delay.

Getting Started

Before the first session, be sure to do the following: 

  • Read the Player's Guide for your adventure path. Message me and I will send you a copy.
  • If you are a new player, first read the Archives of Nethys Player's Guide.
  • Come to the table with a completely built character. I recommend using Pathbuilder 2e to create your character, and will reimburse you on request for purchasing full access.
