The Adventurer's Handbook

Watermarked PDF

"Stuff People Want To Play!"

That’s how Sean K Reynolds, Paizo Publishing’s Developer for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, describes the contents of the Adventurer’s Handbook in his introduction to this book. He also says that the Genius Guides are “fun, playable, and of excellent quality.” If the people who make Pathfinder are saying that, shouldn’t you check the material out for yourself?

Written by industry veterans and Pathfinder contributors Owen K.C. Stephens and Stan!, this book contains new base classes, spells, and feats including:

  • The Death Mage—a spellcaster dedicated to the powers of death and decay without focusing on necromancy.
  • Feats of Battle—gimmicks and tricks to help your combat specialist stand out from the crowd.
  • Ice Magic—spells and character options that make wintry spellcasters as versatile and dangerous as any fireball-flinger.
  • The War Master—a martial warrior who is a leader of men, but maintains his own ability to kick ass.
  • And more!

    The Genius Guides are the best-selling line of digital Pathfinder Roleplaying Game support products. As individual PDFs, they have been featured on RPG Countdown and the best sellers lists of and

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
