by Beadle & Grimm's Pandemonium Warehouse
We worked closely with Beadle & Grimm's Pandemonium Warehouse on this set of 5 licensed class books for Pathfinder (2nd Edition): Cleric, Druid, Fighter, Wizard, and Rogue.
The concept was to make an in-world-styled book that a player would carry with them, containing the things most likely to come up at the table for their specific character. We collaborated with the project leads, artists, and authors, to make the book truly unique while complying with Paizo's requirements.
We designed character sheets for each class, highlighting the most important information for the first spread, and provided lots of space for everything the character would need – and nothing they don't. We made sure to support the very-popular Pathfinder Society to make it useful for Organized Play games.
Then, we collected only the relevant class information from the Pathfinder Second Edition Core Rulebook and Advanced Players Guide, reassembled them in a new format, integrated the information, and reorganized it for extra clarity when it made sense. For instance, there are new charts, information pulled from multiple areas in the book and integrated where it makes sense in the particular class, and images that show what spells and abilities do.
We finished it off with a journal, again styled to highlight the class with unique lists, art, and quotes to liven it up and inspire the writer.
