The Pathfinder 2nd Edition Core Rulebook is a 640-page bible for the new-and-improved roleplaying system. It has everything you need to make and play a character, and you won't find a better price on it any time soon.
Pathfinder started off as a revised and expanded version of D&D 3.5 in 2009, giving dedicated tabletop gamers a new way to play one of their favorite systems. A decade's worth of additional books and materials added new classes, items, and stories to the game, making it impressively broad yet also very complex. Pathfinder 2nd Edition revises the core concepts of the game to make it more streamlined and accessible while leaving just as much room for customization and future expansion.
If you like the core rulebook enough that you want to run a game yourself, Pathfinder 2nd Edition's Bestiary will give you fearsome foes to make your players' lives more interesting - all with the same 30% off discount at Amazon.
