I'm working hard to try and get the videos posted. Its... taking awhile to render them and upload. New equipment has great new quality... but that quality means more computing time.

These are really neat, but leaving so much blank, you mean the cards wont contain the full text?

The first print run CRB's were actually notorious for having weaker bindings. I believe that new print runs had stronger bindings than before. This isn't the first time this concern has seen the forums.

The CRB is one of the few RPG books printed so thick, and certainly the thickest book to see such widespread use. I'm not blaming Paizo for not being able to predict what would happen, but I don't think it dismiss-able either.

Honestly, I'd love to see the CRB split into two books, a Player's Guide and a GM's Reference. At $29.99 and $19.99 respectively (The GM sections are small compared to the player section in the CRB, not all of the DMG made the port over), or even a bit more each, inflation and binding costs etc...

Sorry but Harry Potter is not a good comparison unless that is how you run your world.
Why isn't it?
Because Harry Potter is a style of fantasy where magic is a day to day thing where you can buy magic wands around every corner. Not everyone runs their games like that so its a poor comparison unless that is how you specifically run your games.

I keep hearing this same excuse for your stance. "Not everyone runs their game that way."

The flavor texts were written assuming a certain play method for the game. It has even been explicitly called out as such by one of the games creators.

If you don't play with that flavor, then you are explicitly playing the game in a non-standard way. Which is totally cool, but don't ignore the spelled out facts. If it doesn't have a GP cost it was just something the writers put in the game to sound neat and help describe things during play.

The explicit balance of the game was already established, and using this as a crutch for your house rules is poor form.

If you make house rules stand by them on their own merits. But apply them equally across the board.

You obviously have a problem with casters, but I don't think this is really the ship you wanna sail your crusade on. Its got leaks. Go back to the original problem and figure out how it works better for you.

And hope your players agree with you.

Important note: you'll need to slightly adjust the print settings when prepping the spell cards. On the Playing Card size, size down to 97% and remove the header and footer from the print job or you will have some of the bottom cards run onto a second page.

Stay tuned to the site this week, an update to the cards will solve this problem forever!

Here is another draft of what they could look like...

As you may have heard in Know Direction 47, I'm currently working on a complete revision of Perram's Spellbook, and I need your guys help. I want to make this the best spell cards available, PERIOD.

The goals:


  • Better Looking Cards (Example Below)
  • Save Cards as PDF Files, to help resolve printing issues.
  • Using Inspirations from CCG and Board Game cards to make reading the cards easier and more compact. Using Symbols, etc...
  • Still having the cards be customizeable ! Important to include the option for both large and small text for users who are unable to read small text.
  • A cheat list option, instead of cards. Basically like a reference table of the basic stats without the full text description.
  • Ability to enter your caster stats in, and have the spell display modified numerical info like range and save DC based on level, stat, bonuses, etc...

So please chime in with your requests and suggestions!

Example Here.

I think it is pretty obvious that this would quickly become the complaints box nearly entirely. And it would very quickly discourage GMs from stepping up. It is hard enough to get GMs for events as it is!

If there is a legitimate problem big enough to need action, contact the organizers or Paizo with details.

But if GMs start having to worry about their 'report cards' after a long hard con dragging their equipment around, loosing their voice, stressing about the tables, struggling to even /hear a word/ because the con hall is so loud it drives you deaf, and then dealing with things like last minute changes, or picking up a slot for a GM that didn't show up...

Well, then players should expect it to be nearly impossible to get seats in the very few chairs remaining.

The Know Direction Podcast will once again be releasing audio recordings of the majority of the sessions, presentations, and seminars of PaizoCon! So for those of you, like myself, who were not able to make it, this is the second best thing!

These recording would not have been possible without the help of Justin Sluder, Jessie Banner, and Paul Rimmer. Thank you three for your help, support, and hard work. I’m sure the Pathfinder fan community appreciates it as much as we do.

Our plan is to release a new segment every day as they finish editing.

Our First Segment: The PaizoCon 2012 Banquet!
You can listen to it right here!

I want them to reprint.

I want this to be the ONE book I can hand my players when they want to go shopping in a huge city, instead of them flipping through a dozen books!

Thats pretty cool, but i was kinda hoping to find just a sheet to track my spells the room on the char sheet isnt enough for the way i write.

But thanks for the help anyway.

I'm a big fan of Happy Camper's character sheets for that kinda stuff, they have a lot of neat fields, including many different ways to record your spells known.
