PaizoCon 2012 Banquet Stuff Part VI
The Pathfinder Player Companion will be awesomer (so says Erik Mona). Wes Schneider showed off Varisia, Birthplace of Legends, which will debut at GenCon. The books have been redesigned with a lot of cool new visual features--the inside cover of this book shows all the Shoanti tribes in Varisia. The Player Companion is very modular and will feature quick pieces of information. The first spread contains information "for your character" and a reference to all the new rules in the book. The books will show roles for iconic characters (such as the Varisian Fortune-Teller), which features suggestions for character classes, feats, and roleplaying ideas. The next featured section was the player map, showing all the things characters would know and not spoiling GM-y goodness. Paizo is taking advantage of the book's format to have double-page maps and panoramic art (like the illustration depicting Korvosa). The books will also pull in some information from the Player's Guide, but it will including more information than just the AP. Next in the line is Knights of the Inner Sea, which has information on paying the "big heroes" of the Inner Sea.
