Can I use the prd as a resource?
« on: February 12, 2015, 01:32:38 PM »
Hey! I'm new to PFS, but not new to Pathfinder in general, and had a quick question.

I understand that if I wish to have an item/spell/class/race/etc. from anything other then the Core rulebook it is required that I bring a copy of the information to any games I attend. Can I bring a printed off page from either the or as a reference? as far as I understand, these resources are taken directly from the books and their respective errata.

I only ask, as I do not have any of the extra resources at the moment, and I would like to use some of the extra resources available.

Thank you in advance for your help!

The PRD is a legal resource for players only if you also provide a screen shot of your downloads page that shows you own the pdf version of the book you are using.  If you don't own the PDF and are able to show that you do, the PRD is not a legal resource.

While d20prsrd is an awesome tool that I also frequently use for research, but it is not considered a legal resource for Society play.

You can use the PRD to decide what to buy, and then buy the printed or PDF.

There is a core only play, and if people ask for core, there will be more core only games.
