Pathfinder is Paizo Publishing's 96-page, perfect-bound, full-color softcover Adventure Path book printed on high-quality paper that releases in a monthly volume. Each volume is brought to you by the same staff which brought you Dragon and Dungeon magazines for over five years. It contains an in-depth Adventure Path scenario, stats for about a half-dozen new monsters, and several support articles meant to give Game Masters additional material to expand their campaign. Because Pathfinder uses the Open Game License, it is 100% compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world's most popular fantasy roleplaying game.
Não é nem necessário dizer que jogadores que pretendem jogar Crimson Throne tem a obrigação de pelo menos ter o PDF (que é gratuito no site da Paizo) e ler o quanto antes. As ilustrações são muito bonitas, mas poucas delas mostram a cidade em si. O novos talentos são uteis mesmo fora da campanha e todo o conceito do sistema de traits é interessante conhecer para resolver aquele velho problema de como juntar o grupo. Pode parecer forçar algo na história do jogador, mas é só uma maneira do mestre ter de juntar personagens como motivações corretas de entrarem naquela história (sem virar samba do crioulo doido).
Products like these are the reason I'm no longer supporting WotC, and all of those gaming dollars will be going to Paizo. Wow. The background info, the hints on how to get a party together, the flavor, the presentation - it is all perfect. And at $2.00 a pop, and free PDF download available, it is clear that Paizo is concerned more with the player's experience than squeezing every dollar out of us. Please keep up the good work, Paizo!
first i'll say, just to make it clear: this guide is very good, and i'd liked it.
but there is a major problam in this guidebook: it gives to much information. the endless lists of not- really-importent-to-know people frpm the city will quicly overwhelm any but the most enthuistic players, so they might miss importent pats.
second problam: from reading the guide, it is easy to guss what the first adventure is going to be about, for it holds many obvios clues.
therefore, i am going to edit this guide before asking my playrs to read it, and i recommend that you as DM's should do the same.
