The Complete Character Chronicles, the tools you need to tell your story, and the pages to preserve it.

What does that mean?

It means that we take that heap of books, character sheets, and journals stacked up in front of you at the table and distill it down into one book that contains:

  • 20+ page character sheet. Everything you need at your fingertips, including plenty of room for home-brew rules, familiars, allies and enemies, and more.
  • All the rules from the Pathfinder 2e Core Rulebook and Advanced Player Guide that you need to run your character, and only your character. What does that mean for you, a Wizard? It means a spellbook with only Wizard spells.
  • A journal for you to record your character's entire story.

What goes into building the Chronicles? How about:

  • Full page, 8 1/2 by 11 design
  • Vegan Leather Cover beautifully decorated with an embossed foil design
  • Sturdy lay-flat binding
  • Thick paper for the areas that you're going to write on
  • Glossy paper for the rules
  • Artwork from the Pathfinder universe, as well as custom pieces commissioned by us for the Character Chronicles

Beadle & Grimm's Pandemonium Warehouse was summoned up by the five founders as a mid-life crisis. And like any good summoning, it has gone awry and grown into an actual company, only nominally under our control.

We are gamers. We love games. We play games. And now we, or at least this thing we have summoned, make loot for gamers like us. We hope these things we have created bring you the same joy they bring us.

Although these products will be available everywhere Beadle & Grimm’s merchandise is sold, we have chosen to crowdfund this project to get the product into the hands of the most dedicated fans as quickly as possible.

And, as anyone who knows about the printing business can tell you, the more copies we order in our print run, the lower our costs go which is a win/win for everyone!

Risks and challenges

There's one variable we can't control: The COVID-19 pandemic! Most affordable printing options are overseas, and it is impossible to know when the factories will reopen, or how backlogged they will be. We have carefully calculated the production and shipping costs pre-pandemic, and we will communicate with you as soon as we have firm timeline estimates. While there are many things we can plan ahead of time, we realize there are inevitably unforeseen circumstances that may arise when working with printing and fulfilling a large number of orders. We will be transparent about the status of the project along the way so backers will be the first to know if complications come up. In order to keep backers up to date on the project, we've included the "project status" as well for extra transparency. We want this to be a journey we take together!

For those who plan to get heavily into the mead (as one does) bring your own bottle.* Does not include Digital Age premium reward.** Does not include transportation to Gen Con, and though we hate to point this out, this is dependent on there actually being a Gen Con next year.
