Is there a "core book" for the Pathfinder Campaign setting? I've looked on multiple sites but haven't found out!

i have refused pathfinder, as they failed psionics.

and, no, third-party (quality or not), is unacceptable.

Not sure your points, nijineko. Alter the psionic rules to your taste, no problems. Also, not really sure what you mean by 3rd-party material - yes, I know what it means, just not seeing how it applies to Paizo-released/published game material, Paizo Publishing, LLC.

BTW, Always nice to meet another Psionics fan, nijineko. http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/images/icons/icon14.png

If you are referring to the Golarion campaign setting, rather than the PF rule book, then this is probably what you're after:

The Inner Sea World Guide (http://paizo.com/products/btpy8ief)

It's a 320 page hardback book full of Golarion (well, Inner Sea, technically...) goodness. Well worth the asking price, with only a small amount of game mechanics in the back. It's a great read and a worthy campaign book.

ah. ^^ my point was that pathfinder has no psionics at all. and no psionics = no nijineko.

there is a third party source, DSP, which does produce psionics designed to be 3.x/3.p compatible, but as mentioned, are third party.


and, likewise.

Sure, it's interesting to have Psionics, but I (personally) don't see it as a base requirement for a good fantasy game.

I wonder if Paizo have any intention of doing a Psionics book?

Yes this is the one. I realized after posting that I had already purchased it but misplaced it. Silly me.

Thank you everyone for the input!

i do see it as a requirement for myself, though i have seen it work fine without.

some of my favorite fantasy included psionics.


as far as i know, they have no intention of doing so.

Nothing wrong with a bit of mind bending. ;)

It seems strange that Paizo haven't taken the opportunity to release a nice big expensive hardback 'Ultimate Psionics' book. I guess they still have that option. I'd buy it! :D

seems they've left it up to dreamscarred press for the nonce.

To quote a certain Spaniard, "I do not think that word means what you think it means".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonce_%28slang%29

I don't think Dreamscarred Press will be happy, you suggesting that they cater to Nonces*. :p :lol:

(* Just for clarity: Yes, I know you were referring to them being the only source of Pathfinder Psionics for the time being, bit it was too funny to pass up. ;) )

On the very bright side, they do appear to be releasing an "Ultimate Psioncs" book, which I shall add to my list of books to purchase, so thanks for the heads up. :)

that word, i think it does mean what i think it means (from your link, a quote), "Nonce also means "now" in ordinary English[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonce_%28slang%29#cite_note-OxfordEnglish-3) and has other meanings in the terms "nonce word (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonce_word)" and "cryptographic nonce (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptographic_nonce)"."

^^ but that is a potentially funny and/or risky meaning. thank you for letting me know - i'll be careful around brits and (maybe) aussies. ^^
