Golarion is the world and home of The Pathfinder Chronicles.

Book Requirements for this Campaign: Pathfinder Core Rulebook

Characteristics: Roll 3D6 for each Characteristic. Lowest roll becomes a 16 if the highest characteristic rolled <= 16. Can put into any order. Racial Bonuses are applied after this judgement and stat placement.

Characters will start at Level 1, and will start in ‘The River Kingdoms’ area of Golarion. The characters can originate from ‘The River Kingdoms’, or from other areas in Golarion. The Campaign itself will start in the city of Pitax located in the northeast corner of The River Kingdoms. You can describe how or why you are in Pitax in your character backgrounds.

Characters will benefit from background traits chosen from the area they grew up in, or from the ‘general traits’ area. In addition I am allowing the Pathfinder Chronicles Alternate Class Abilities located in the Campaign Setting Book which I will make available.

You can find Available Traits and Alternate Class Abilities in the wiki.
