Pathfinder 2

Here I am showcasing what I have done with Races for Pathfinder 2.

House Rules:

  • Half-Breed (2020-02-03) Here I am showing how I have changed the Half-race options from Humans and made it available to all races.


  • Available Races
  • Available Half-Breeds
  • Converting Races from Pathfinder 1 to 2

Available Races

Source: PF2 Lost Omens Character Guide (pf2-locg)

Common Base Race:

Uncommon Base Race:

  • Goblin (2020-08-06)
  • Hobgoblin (pf2-locg)
  • Lizardfolk (pf2-locg)

Rare Base Race:

A character gains ALL the character build mechanics of the mothers race and is identifiable as that race.

Available Half-Breeds

Common Half-Race:

  • Elf
  • Orc

Uncommon Half-Race:

  • Gnome
  • Hag
  • Halfling
  • Human

Rare Half-Race:

  • Dwarf
  • Goblin
  • Hobgoblin
  • Leashie
  • Lizardfolk
  • Ratfolk
  • Shadowkin

They are designed to use with my Half-Breed rules where any race can mix with any race, the mother sets the core details (including attributes) and the father provides additional bonuses.

For using the Half-Breed further, I have all the Half-Breed Feats referenced in one place with additional ones created for my campaigns. There is a difference between a Heritage and an Ancestry, so if your building a character in my game and are unsure what the difference is feel free to ask.

Feats found in other sourcebooks:

Hobgoblin Feats – Azarsi’s Roads (R Hobgoblin 17, leg28)

Converting Races from Pathfinder 1 to 2

For my Jade Regent game I had a few characters that were built using Pathfinder 1 rules that did not have an equivalent conversion in Pathfinder 2 so I built my own.

They are designed to use with my Half-Breed rules where any race can mix with any race, the mother sets the core details (including attributes) and the father provides additional bonuses.
