A promising but flawed product

***( )( )

The book is over a year late, and during that year its hard to tell where the money and effort went.

There are only 8 original pieces of art in the entire 200 page book, most of which are re-used from his previous project, the character guide.

The actual prose and mechanics are interesting, and sometimes novel, but these mechanics we've mostly seen before in previous releases. Though its easy to see that under the surface of a poor presentation was a good idea and an interesting world setting.

This had promise... but is flawed.

(Note: This review has been updated to reflect changes to the final PDF now available.)

One of the best surprises of the series

*****

Alright, finished this up and I enjoyed it quite a lot. I think I'm joining with the others in saying that the Pathfinder Tales line needs less anti-heroes and more real heroes... but at least this time it was one heck of an anti-hero.

Also: Have no doubt, the banter is the main attraction of this book, and it is wonderful.

You can also tell that Tim Pratt knew gamers were going to read this book. The main character isn't so dumb as to fall for the obvious tricks, and makes plans and plots like way too many players would. It was honestly refreshing to knot really know what to expect or to have my expectations turned against me... but in a good way not a 'Got-cha' way!

Also, best part of the book is Magnos the Ash Lord shows up. Trust me.

VERY Large, Good Price, Uncomfortable

***( )( )

I bought this bag at GenCon 2011, though mine has the 'Bag of Holding' logo stitched on it instead of the Handy Haversack logo. It is still, however, the same bag otherwise.

Overall I'm happy with the purchase and use it as the primary gaming bag even still. I won't be going to conventions without it.

The thing is BIG. That can't be understated. The design of the bag allows me to keep:

Pathfinder Core Rulebook
Pathfinder Bestiary
Character folders for 6 NPCs
4 volumes of an Adventure Path
Map Pack from the ADventure Path
2" thick case of miniatures.
Spiral Bound Notebook

BIG bag of dice.
Spell Cards for Each Character
Condition Cards
4 Flip Mats
Tokens!
More Tokens!
Initiative Flags

BIG bag of pencils, scissors, other important tools.

And... I think I've got room for a lot more.

However it is UNCOMFORTABLE to wear. The straps on the shoulder dig into your arm because they have no padding. I'll likely figure out a way to add my own.

I also had some wear and tear. The metal fittings for the shoulder straps broke, and I had to tie a knot to replace it. Similar failures for other metal bits happened less catastrophically.

The best Wayfinder Yet

*****

This is quite simply the best produced fan project I have ever seen. The articles are varied, well written, and useful. And the layout work and art are of a quality far above what I expect from even the best third party publisher.

Simply put the best RPG Magazine in existence is free, and it's name is Wayfinder.

Fantastic take on a potentially tired concept.

*****

I really enjoyed the read for this book. It covered a lot of aspects about playing a race that doesn't really get a lot of depth. The section of Tiefling rituals was especially nice, and I'll be using a lot of this book the next time I play a Tiefling character.

I love it when a book like this comes along and turns something that is a tired cliche into something with depth and character. Paizo's really been hitting them out of the park lately.
