Pathfinder Nexus Frequently Asked Questions

Things I require in order to make use of this:

  • I have to be able to make changes to the base rule elements

  • I have to be able to pick and choose which rule elements my players have access to (not just which books)

  • I have to be able to share my PDFs with my players.

  • dice roller built into the character sheet would be nice, but not required.

I’ve made a bunch of changes to the system’s rules and removed a bunch of feats that don’t work for me/my table, so without full control over the system this wouldn’t be for me unfortunately.

As GM I budget and front most of the costs for my gaming group to play Pathfinder 2E, from Pathfinder Nexus, to Roll 20, and also to Hero Lab Online(For now since it has character creation and combat management / tracking as well as some other awesome features like setting up scenes). Roll 20 and Hero Lab Online let me share content with players. I know DnD Beyond lets players join the GM’s campaign and have access to the GM’s purchased content(my DnD 5E group does this). Will that be the same for my players? Can they search the compendium with all of the content I have purchased because they are part of my campaign as well as the other features inside of Nexus?

I really hope so, otherwise I feel like my players won’t be able to use this tool due to the cost investment.


Great question! We’ll share more specifics about content sharing when we’re ready, but it’s definitely something we plan to include.


Ok awesome thank you for getting back to me on this.

With the announcement of Foundry VTT partnership with Paizo will we see official integration between Foundry and Nexus?


I am really excited for the full release of Nexus. I love pathfinder but with the pandemic and what was created a bit ago with DNDBeyond, I couldn’t find anything anywhere that was like it. My friends and I just happen to talk about pathfinder and others and I needed to find out if something existed. I was shocked to see Nexus. I’m just curious as to when the full release is?


We’re glad that you’re excited about Pathfinder NEXUS. So are we!

We aren’t in the habit of giving timelines, as the development process can be unpredictable. We won’t have a full release until we have several more features in place (like character management, for instance), but I can tell you that we are working hard to put all the pieces together as soon as possible. In the meantime, you’re welcome to help us test things in early access :slight_smile:

Well I guess I need to start digging into it!

I am starting a PF2E adventure and I am
using foundry. Is the nexus a replacement for Hero labs?

question: what is the planned date for character creation release? i noticed you guys were getting ready to release the pilot and was wondering if you guys set a date?

We don’t plan to share a date at this time, because it can be a little hard to predict how long it will take to build a tool like ours. That being said, we are working very hard to get this out as soon as possible, and I expect that there will be updates in the coming weeks as to what an approximate timeline for character management looks like. :slight_smile:

It’s times like these I wish I could add a gif

Hi, one question I couldn’t find info on: do you plan on including a tool to build/modify NPCs? Maybe a switch in the character creator that would let you create NPCs just as easily following the guidelines from the GM Guide?
That would be a most wanted feature for me. I could even get ahead of myself and say that if I knew such a feature will be included, that would push me over the hill and make me buy into the whole platform!

That is on the long-term roadmap, yes. We won’t get there for a while yet, but we would like to make it happen. We’ll share more as we get further along.

Thank you very much, I can’t wait :slight_smile:

So since I am unsure where to post this I figure this might be best. But I am looking at buying the complete bundle for PF2E and I was wondering if the 25% and the paizo 33% rebate stack or if the system defaults to one or the other and if so which one?

The Paizo Connect discount for PDFs that you own on their store does stack with the Ultimate Bundle on our store. The Paizo Connect discount applies first, and then the Ultimate Bundle discount is applied on top of that, so you’ll want to make sure that you’ve refreshed your Paizo Connect before adding the Ultimate Bundle to your cart! :slight_smile:

We’ve been providing updates as we’ve been building character tools. We are currently targeting the end of this month for the character builder closed alpha to launch. Invitations will go out to select users who are Demiplane Members and have unlocked content on the NEXUS to help us fine tune and test during this time. More invites will go out along the way, while we move closer to an open beta/Early Access period.
