This free issue of Pathways was great. It had more information than older issues of Dragon/Dungeon. It really is a good resource for anyone running, playing of building a Pathfinder game. The amount of options given open up the game to such a point that you could play almost anyway you want.
Now for the bad. Easily half of it was advertising. Now, I do realize it was free, and 40 some pages, so I really can't complain.
I would recommend Pathways for anyone who is looking to expand beyond the standard cookie cutter characters and ideas presented in the Paizo books.
