Paizo Announces Pathfinder Beginner Box to Release in November

Pathfinder Second Edition

Paizo is looking to make it easy for new players to jump into Pathfinder, launching a “Beginner Box” for the game later this year. The company announced on Friday that the Pathfinder Beginner Box will launch in November and will contain all the things players need to learn how to play and run games in the system.

The Pathfinder Beginner’s Box follows the release of the Starfinder Beginner Box in May of last year. That box contains both the Hero’s (aka Player’s) and GM’s Handbooks, dice, pawns for battlemaps and more. Similarly, the Pathfinder Beginner Box will include, per Paizo:

An 80-page Hero’s Handbook, including rules for character generation, a solo adventure, skills, spells, and equipment.
A 96-page Game Master’s Handbook, containing an introductory adventure, over 20 pages of monsters, rules for building your own adventure, and magic items.
Four premade characters so you can jump right into the action and four blank character sheets if you want to make your own hero.
Over 100 character and monster pawns to use on the full-color double-sided adventure map.
Four game reference cards to help players remember their actions.
A complete set of polyhedral dice, including a d20, d12, d10, d8, d6, and d4.

You can pre-order the Pathfinder box here.
