So, after the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game came out, Paizo shifted from Pathfinder Chronicles (3.5) to Pathfinder Campaign Setting.

I was wondering if anyone had a good list of books that have been completely outdated, semi-outdated, and not outdated at all. I'm also curious as to which books Paizo now considers part of the campaign setting. (I have a copy of the Pathfinder Chronicle Dark Markets, but the Additional Resources guide for PFS lists it as a Pathfinder Campaign supplement). I'm curious about this from both a mechanics and a lore perspective.

A couple examples I could think of that might help you understand:

  • The Inner Sea World Guide has since completely replaced the Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting.

  • The Great Beyond (Chronicles) has not had (to my knowledge) a book published that replaces it completely.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yeah, I tried to set reasonable bounds, because I know open ended list questions are usually frowned upon here. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Aug 30, 2015 at 19:57

1 Answer 1


The only things I could find that were 100% outdated are

Gods & Magic: Replacement Inner Sea Gods

Osirion Land of Pharaohs: Replacements Osirion Legacy of Pharaohs & People of the Sands

Adventures Armory: Replacement Ultimate Equipment

  • \$\begingroup\$ It's worth noting that Gods and Magic contains magic items associated with various gods that I don't think are reprinted elsewhere. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jun 16, 2016 at 11:14
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, but Inner Sea Gods do have magic items associated with the gods in that book. So you could say that the new items replaced the old. \$\endgroup\$
