Ancestral Options - Humans


The Best (and the Worst) Humanity Has to Offer!


In the Pathfinder Second Edition roleplaying game, a character’s ancestry matters more than ever before. Instead of picking a race and sticking with it, players are encouraged to customize the benefits a character gains from their lineage, with a wide assortment of ancestry feats gained at various levels. While the Pathfinder Second Edition Core Rulebook presents plenty of great options for each of these ancestries, the focus on customization means that there’s always room for new and exciting ways to bring your ancestry to the fore.


This book focuses on providing new ancestry-related options for human characters. Too often relegated to simply being the “default” or “generic” race, humans have distinct traits all their own, including their affinity for domesticating and training animals, their quick thinking, and their uncanny ability to adapt to any situation, as well as a capacity both for incredible altruism and self-sacrifice, and terrible cruelty and brutality. In this book, you’ll find:


  • 16 new ancestry feats for humans, ranging from 1st through 13th level, including Free Market Advantage, Humanity First, and Horse Whisperer!
  • A new archetype for human characters, the exemplar, for those humans who represent the best and brightest of human potential.
  • A second new archetype for human characters, scum, for those humans who sink to the lowest levels of depravity that their race has to offer.

This is a great product, many of the feats are very useful and both Exemplar and Scum emphasize the best or worst of humanity in a very flavorful way. Exemplar especially opens some Paladin behavior and dedication to all classes, which is more interesting than multiclassing in Paladin for the smites.

There's just one major flaw I've noticed and that is that Jogger's cost on 1st turn is immediately compensated on the 2nd and there's no limitation to how long you can jog in combat. Also, there needs to be a limitation on a straight line, without turns (or turns cost double, as if difficult terrain) for this to be balanced. It is not clear how long can a player run in that mode. Overall this feat needs major rewrite.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
