Early in the game’s lifetime, Pathfinder’s races went little beyond ability score modifiers. But over time, Pathfinder’s races became gradually more complex, especially with the addition of the Ultimate Race Guide and race-specific options like archetypes, feats, and spells.

These articles focus on an individual race. Ratings for that race may intentionally differ from the ratings on class handbooks. As usual, we only support a limited subset of Pathfinder’s rules content, so options for the races below may be omitted.
