  • Unarmored and Dangerous: A Martial Sourcebook This massive sourcebook clocks in at 86 pages, 1 page of front cover, 1 page of editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page of advertisement, leaving us with…yes. 82 pages of content. That’s a lot of ground to cover, so let’s take a look!   This book, just fyi, is not a collection of classes in the traditional sense – instead, the goal of this book is to provide a unified set of traditions to codify martial arts in Pathfinder.
