Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I like how they have taken the 3.5 rules and tweaked them to make the game more interesting. I also loved the artwork in the book.

Rated out of 5 by from Everything You Need... ...except the Monsters. Essentially a cleaned-up, boiled down version of the D&D 3.x rules, this huge tome contains the rules for both players and GMs all in one volume, which eliminates the need to constantly change books while looking up a rule. It is well-organized, with a good index, and the artwork is nice throughout. The most popular character classes and races are present [more will be added in later volumes], along with the classic Vancian magic system, assorted skills, feats, and all the magic items you will need to get a campaign started. Best of all; it is fully compatible with any of the already-published 3.x books and supplements out there, so you don't even need to start your library over again! Highly recommended for anyone who liked "classic" D&D, or who wants to get started now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pathfinder RPG is D&D v3.5 perfected! For anyone who doesn't want to trade in all of their expensive D&D v3.5 books but is looking to take their campaigns in a new direction, the Pathfinder RPG system is what you want. Although completely compatible with your older D&D books, the rules are now simpler and more sensible. In this core rulebook that serves as both player's handbook and DM's guide, the original character races & classes have been expanded with many new options that makes the game more exciting to play. Finally, a reason to play a Scorcerer character! http://thephilosopherstone.ca
