Generally I don’t nerd out actively as much here regarding updates to favorite tabletop games, but next week has me pretty stoked. Paizo is releasing the Advanced Class Guide for their Pathfinder Roleplaying Game tabletop, and it’s got me pretty excited for a number of reasons—
1) New classes— Yep. Ten new classes, each utilizing a set of skills inspired by the previous core classes, now available to play and expand on character creation of the popular tabletop RPG. From the charismatic swashbuckler to the zealous warpriest, it’s ten classes (each with their own set of archetype builds) of all new fun with friends.
2) New iconics— One of the things I loved about Pathfinder is how each player class in their game is an iconic character existing in the universe’s continuity. Each character is fleshed out with their own back story and why they took up the adventurer’s call. The Advanced Class Guide adds ten new faces into the Pathfinder universe, each ready to carve their own path of destiny.
3) This one is just a personal quirk of mine, but I like the even male:female ratio of the genders of this new batch of iconics coming to the Pathfinder universe. Especially towards the ladies, who have some well-written back stories that will assuredly put them on the path of strong female characters. Visually they look spectacular too— none of them seem to hit the stereotypical “fantasy female sexy wardrobe” one would expect. These ladies come pretty much clad head to toe in full armor, ready for a fight. It’s beautiful. c:
