Pathfinder Rules for Batman


Recommended Posts

My 5 1/2 yo son is super into Batman.  I had set up a Pathfinder game for the grownups, but only filled 2/4 seats.  My son has shown a little and growing interest in tabletop gaming.  So I made some stats for Batman as a Pathfinder character and used his LEGO Batman on the battle grid.


Here are how it came out: attributes were rolled.

Race Human

Class Ranger (Urban) lvl 1

Str 16

Dex 19 (+2 human)

Con 14 

Int 13

Wis 14

Cha 8


Favored Class Ranger +1 HP

Trait: Rich Parents

Trait: Deft Dodger (+1 Reflex)

Favored Enemy Humanoid (human)

Feat - Improved Unarmed Strike

Feat Human - Exotic Weapon Prof - Shuriken


Skills - don’t remember exactly, sheet isn’t in front of me:

Acrobatics, Craft (alchemy), Disable Device, knowledge (local), perception, Survival, Stealth


Gear- I took some liberties here for flavor:

Mwk Studded Leather, Batarangs(shuriken shaped like a bat available in a lethal or non lethal variety), smoke bombs (combine thunderstone and smoke stick in one thrown item same price as both combined), Mwk thieves tools, sap, spiked gauntlets x 2 (his sharp things sticking out of his arms), Grapnel: (Light Crossbow + 50ft silk rope + Mwk grappling hook + 100gp to account for the “gnomish winch”) I would have loved to make it a hand crossbow, but didn’t want to waste two feats on exotics.  I just tacked on cost to the various gear to use up the gold from rich parents and still leave him with a good kit.


He made level two and I chose an alt. Option for weapon style: thrown weapon.  That gave him bonus feat of Precise Shot without needing Point Blank Shot, but I plan on adding it later.


Let me know what you think.


My son didn’t have the attention span to stay at the table for long: his cousins were in the pool, so he ended up there.  My friend always plays the Cleric, but he ran Batman as a second character and had a blast with it.

Just read up on that.  I don’t have that source book, so didn’t know that existed.


I agree completely with it seeming to cry out Butman.  Ultimately I was trying to a) keep it simpler b) use the books I own, rather than Archive of Nethys.  But that Vigilante class will be a good next iteration if my son starts gaining more interest and finesse with the process.

I'm surprised you didn't take the vigilante class



I'm Bat errr inspired by Batman!!


Cool concept thou, I do like his combat gear. It really gives the character a gadget man feel but using medieval items (or medieval as you can get with fantasy rpgs now).
