Volume of the Vanguard: A 2E Class


Presenting the Volume of the Vanguard, a Pathfinder Second Edition class portraying the most stalwart combatants.

The Vanguard class is a heavy defender, from their rock-solid core to their reactions to negate incoming damage or punish a foe trying to ignore them. From steel mountains who sacrifice their mobility to pack a devastating whallop to warlords providing a commanding presence for their allies, vanguards excel in the thick of the fight. Furthermore, this volume contains new protection-focused equipment, boasting new heavy armors as well as adjustments for any armor. In this volume you can also meet Brynja, the iconic vanguard, a noble Matanji orc hailing from the Mwangi Expanse, with a complete 1st level character sheet.

Included in this document:

  • The Vanguard Class, boasting 35 new feats
  • 6 Valorous Paths for Vanguards, a sub-class choice which focuses the character, from mobile Heroes to intense Dragon Knights
  • The Vanguard Multiclass Archetype, to bring solid defensive might to any character.
  • 2 new armors, including 3 new armor traits and 1 new armor specialization
  • 5 new adjustments for armors
  • Full character sheet for Brynja, as well as 2 less-detailed sample builds interspersed among the class

Additionally, Volume of the Vanguard has its own module for FoundryVTT!

In the downloads, you'll find a second file describing how to install and use the compendium module for FoundryVTT, bringing all the content from the Volume of the Vanguard to your virtual experience, with as much automated and integrated as reasonably doable.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
