Pathfinder Campaign Setting publications (previously Pathfinder Chronicles) are 64-page sourcebooks detailing elements of the Pathfinder campaign setting. This product line for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game includes maps, regional gazetteers, books on creatures and races of Golarion and other worlds, and other subjects rooted in the Paizo Inc. fictional universe. Many Campaign Setting products directly tie into Pathfinder Adventure Paths.

The Pathfinder Campaign Setting provides classic adventuring style and cutting-edge game design optimized for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and suitable for use with all fantasy roleplaying systems!||”|
The Pathfinder Campaign Setting line was launched in February 2008 with the release of the Rise of the Runelords Map Folio under the Pathfinder Chronicles product line. Releases under this series title continued through August 2010, after which the line was rebranded to its current name. The campaign setting itself also dropped "Chronicles" from its name to adopt the product line's new name.
The line ended with Druma, Profit and Prophecy in June 2019 as the final Pathfinder First Edition setting sourcebook, and was succeeded by the Pathfinder Lost Omens line, starting with the Lost Omens World Guide.
