Where the dungeon ends, another adventure begins! Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Campaign takes you on a guided tour through the parts of the game that happen between monster attacks and quests for ancient artifacts. As some of the most powerful and prestigious heroes around, do your player characters want to build up a kingdom of their own, or lead an army against a neighboring nation? Perhaps they want to start a business, craft magic items, or embark on a quest that will come to define them.
Whether you're looking for help generating a young character or seeking ways to challenge adventurers who've grown bored of fighting monsters one-on-one, this book has everything you need!

An excellent expansion of options and rules and ideas for any campaign, long or short, you can find all kinds of exciting build ideas in this wonderful book. Read it cover to cover to find all the hidden gems.
The tables in Ultimate Campaign for creating randomized character backgrounds are great fun, and exceedingly well done, and I've enjoyed adding their depth to older characters I have -- with even a few rolls, the backgrounds take form almost instantly. You come away with a much richer feeling for your PC's, and you want to see them and their stories come alive. I've yet to move on to the Character Downtime chapter or the larger discussions on kingdom management. For the group of new players I'm with that is just beginning to explore RPG's, I think the Character Background section is a perfect way to show them how creative they can be at the human (or non-human) level. This is a fantastic book and I'd definitely say it's one of the Top 5 essential titles for creating a great Pathfinder experience.
