Pathfinder: Previewing the Favored Classes of Shadowsfall

Next week, JBE will be releasing our Favored Class Options for the races of Shadowsfall. This week we are previewing all the races and classes in this book. Before diving into this, I want to make it clear that EVERY class have a favored class option for ALL the races. That comes out to nearly 300 Favored Class Options contained within. Also these favored class options are great for games in Shadowsfall as well as any other location your setting.

So without further ado, the races are …
Dhampir
Drow
Duergar
Fetchling
Hobgoblin
Orc
Ratfolk
Tiefling
Umbral Kobold
Wayang
Wanderer

You should note that none of the races presented in the Pathfinder Core Rulebook are present herein. That is because the Advanced Race Guide covered those races quite sufficiently. Classes from other Pathfinder Compatible publishers are also covered by those publishers. However, these other races received significantly less support to date and we wanted to make sure these races received their fair share of favored class options.

As mentioned above, there is a favored class optoins for each race/class combination. These classes are:

Alchemist
Barbarian
Bard
Cavalier
Cleric
Druid
Fighter
Gunslinger
Inquisitor
Magus
Malefactor
(see The Malefactor Base Class from TPK Games)
Monk
Oracle
Paladin
Psion
(see Psionics Unleashed from Dreamscarred Press)
Psychic Warrior (see Psionics Unleashed from Dreamscarred Press)
Ranger
Rogue
Sorcerer
Soulknife
(see Psionics Unleashed from Dreamscarred Press)
Summoner
Time Thief
(see The Genius Guide to the Time War from Super Genius Games)
Time Warden (see The Genius Guide to the Time War from Super Genius Games)
Wilder (see Psionics Unleashed from Dreamscarred Press)
Witch
Wizard

That’s a total of 26 classes and 11 races for a total of 286 different favored class options. We are including support for non-core classes right from the very beginning because we feel these classes make an excellent addition to the Shadowsfall setting. If you have not yet done so, be sure to check these classes out. And remember to pre-order your copy of the Shadowsfall: Shadow Plane Player’s Companion so you can get it as soon as it is released next month. Pre-order it from your local gaming store or your favorite gaming website.
