Familiar Folio, a Pathfinder Player Companion accessory by Will McCardell, Philip Minchin, Mark Seifter, and Jerome Virnich, was released on January 28, 2015.


Helping Hands and Spying EyesIt’s time to make your familiar more fearsome! Whether you’re looking to give your magical ally an archetype to transform it into a brutish battle companion or you’re just scouting the menagerie of available familiars, Pathfinder Player Companion: Familiar Folio has you covered. This volume provides a bevy of new options, including new rules that allow characters of any class to gain familiars. Featuring all-new feats, items, spells, archetypes, and—of course—familiars, this Pathfinder Player Companion is the perfect accessory for spellcasters, as well as any player who fancies teaming up with a fantastic, travel-sized friend.

Inside this book, you’ll find:

  • A comprehensive list of familiars in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, guaranteed to make choosing yours both quick and convenient.
  • New archetypes like the duettist bard and eldritch guardian fighter, allowing classes traditionally without familiars to gain animal allies tied to their class abilities.
  • Familiar archetypes that allow players to customize their familiars to excel in combat, dispense untold wisdom, or even gain powers from a school of magic.
  • Bloodline and patron familiars that manifest abilities from the same powers inherent to bloodragers, sorcerers, and witches.
  • Information on the familiars most popular within specific groups on Golarion, like Hellknights and the Pathfinder Society.
