Acceptable Sources

The core rulebook is the only source necessary to play in this campaign, and even it doesn’t need to be brought to the game. As long as players have access to its contents (such as through the system reference document) then that is sufficient. This is supplemented by some freely downloadable material.

Additional Sources

I have a lot of friends at Paizo (and some affiliated companies), and I feel that I would be doing them a disservice if I discouraged players from purchasing their products. If you buy a rulebook then I want to find a way to let you use it. With that in mind, if you bring one of the following sources with you to a game (either as a paper copy or on a tablet) then here’s what you can use:
