Beginner Box Rules

These are the streamlined Pathfinder RPG rules and the best way to learn the game. These rules take characters up to Level 5.

For Players:

Hero’s Handbook (ask Grandmaster for a copy) – How to create your character, and rules for adventuring and combat.
Beginner Box Player Pack (expansion) (PDF) – Includes the barbarian class and new equipment and options!

For Game Masters:
Game Master’s Guide (ask Grandmaster for a copy) – Includes a beginner dungeon and rules and advice for creating your own adventures.
Beginner Box GM Kit (expansion) (PDF) – Includes a second beginner dungeon and more monsters and magic items.

Someone has created an excellent online reference site for the Beginner Box rules

Beginner Box Races:

Gnome, Half-elf, Half-orc, Halfling – Beginner Box conversions thanks to EDOWar

Beginner Box Classes: (Beginner Box conversions from EDOWar’s Blog)
Barbarian – Contained in the Beginner Box Player’s Pack expansion
Cleric – See your Beginner Box Hero’s Handbook

You get a new feat at every odd-numbered level. Here is a list of the feats (PDF file) available to Beginner Box characters!

ALSO… We will use the Core Rules for animal companions, and allow Two-Weapon Fighting! You can choose the Two-Weapon Fighting Feat from the Core Rulebook! (Note that this requires a Dexterity of 15, and your 2nd weapon must be a light weapon — in the Beginner Box light weapons are dagger, light mace, light hammer, short sword, starknife, and throwing axe.)

    This is exactly what I was looking for. I’m about to be a player in a game that is all new players so we’re going to use the beginner box and play through the beginner box adventure and the bash demos but as the only experienced player I’d like to play something more exotic. 🙂

      I’ve now linked it to the PFBeginner website. (I think I might have previously posted a PDF from the document itself which I later put down for copyright reasons.) Thanks for letting me know!
