Pathfinder Beginner’s Box

Jason Bulmahn, Lead Designer at Paizo Publishing, unveiled today the secret project they’ve been working on; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Beginner Box!  Perhaps the idea came from the success of Wizards “Red Box”, hoping to introduce a new group of gamers to their game.  Whether they’ve “borrowed” from Wizard’s strategy or not, I’m all for bring more players back to tabletop RPGs!

Content for the box set is described as below:

  • A 64-page Hero’s Handbook, detailing character creation, spells, equipment, and general rules for playing the game
  • A 96-page Game Master’s Guide packed with adventures, monsters, magical treasures, and advice on how to narrate the game and control the challenges faced by the heroes
  • A complete set of 7 high-impact polyhedral dice
  • More than 80 full-color pawns depicting tons of heroes, monsters, and even a fearsome black dragon
  • Four pregenerated character sheets to throw you right into the action
  • Four blank character sheets to record the statistics and deeds of your custom-made hero
  • A durable, reusable, double-sided Flip-Mat play surface that works with any kind of marker

The box set has a target release date of October 2011 for a price of $34.99, and they are accepting preorders.  For more info, check out for  details!
