Paizo Inc., publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, announces today the release of new softcover pocket editions for two of the game’s essential rulebooks, the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Core Rulebook and Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Bestiary.
The Core Rulebook and Bestiary pocket editions will include the same page count and all of the content of their hardcover counterparts, but will be published in a reduced size of 6.5” x 8.4”, with smaller type and images, a lighter paper stock, and lower price point. The pocket edition Core Rulebook has an MSRP of $24.99 and the pocket edition Bestiary has an MSRP of $19.99, each 50% off the MSRP of the hardcover editions.
“Early response to the paperback Pocket Editions of the Core Rulebook and Bestiary has been absolutely phenomenal, From the lighter weight being popular with convention and game-store players to the overwhelming surprise at the legibility of the text, Pathfinder Pocket Editions are a great idea that has people clamoring for a similar treatment for other Pathfinder hardcovers. I wish we’d thought of it years ago!” – Paizo Publisher Erik Mona
