Summon up some help for your game with 4 Winds Fantasy Gaming's Player's Aid II: Monster Summoning Cards!

With templates—even the simplified templates of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary—and bonuses from feats, summoning monsters on the fly can be a time-consuming process and drag the action to a halt. As a GM, whenever we know the player's are going to confront a spellcaster with a Summon Monster spell readied, we always have the creature stats handy for when it appears, but players don't always know when they are going to cast a Summon Monster spell.

To aid players of spellcasters and to make all other players and GMs happier people, we proudly present Player's Aid II: Monster Summoning Cards. Each card contains a stat block for a creature on the monster summoning lists in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook. Where applicable, you will find both a celestial and a fiendish variant of creatures, and each stat block also includes the necessary adjustments to the creature if your spellcaster has the Augment Summoning feat.

Now, with these cards, your GM and the other players won't groan in frustration when you announce you are going to summon a monster! You simply find the card of the creature you want to summon and—ta-da!—you are ready to go!

Probably not going to use it.

*( )( )( )( )

Doesn't include the secondary elementals (ice, mud, magma, lightning).

The differences between Celestial vs Fiendish (and Entropic & Resolute--not included) templates are not worth spending half of most of the pages for. The only differences are which energy types they resist and which alignment they can smite.

Augmented damage pluses for single primary natural attacks are not correct for the small elementals that are included.

Discussion comments indicated that there would be corrections and additions 'in the near future'. But that was in 2012 and the file is still from 2010.

Between the wasted pages, not being sure I can trust the numbers, and not including the elementals I use the most, I don't foresee using this as it is.


Exactly as Advertised

*****

I picked these up because I have had combats grind to a halt while a player flips back and forth between the Core Rulebook and the Bestiary. Now I can just hand him a short packet and tell him to pick one.

Product is 54 pages long. 1 cover, 1 Title page w/ credits, 1 page Introduction, 3 pages listing the Summon Monster I-IX spells and Summon Monster Table, and 1 page OGL. That leaves 47 pages of Summonable Monsters with the Celestial and Fiendish Templates applied.

-This product lists all the monsters available under the spell with both the fiendish and celestial template applied.

-They are listed alphabetically within each spell level (all the Summon Monster I creatures are listed alphabetically followed by the Summon Monster II creatures listed alphabetically and so on).

-Text goes right to the edge of the page, so you can't 3-hole punch them to put them in a binder. However, this layout makes sense as the intent is for players to cut them out and use them as "cards."

-This product is all black and white with no artwork. It is a purely utilitarian product with no frills, which (I assume) allows for the VERY affordable price point.

I plan to print these out and put them in protective plastic sheets in a binder to be available as a resource at my gaming table.

Why 5 Stars?
-The product is exactly as advertised for a very small price. This is a useful aide for players and GMs.

I printed these, laminated them, cut them out, glued them to thick cardboard so the celestial version is on one side, and the the fiendish version is on the other side. They are now my best player aid ever, and I feel like the king of the world plying my summoner with these. Thank you, and thank you for the continuous updates.


MASSIVE TIME SAVER

*****

This is a wonderful product.

I started a wizard with summoning focus.
After the first game the DM told me it was my job to come up with a list of all the creatures I was going to summon due to the template requirement.

After I finished the list for the 1st level summonable creatures I realized it would take a lot more time than I wanted to spend. I went looking for someone who had done this work and found 4WFG's Player's Aid products.

I love the way the summonables are listed. The creature list gives the creature stats, specials (SA, SD, etc), and if appropriate puts the celestial or fiendish template separately. NO junk. It also has augmented summoning changes in brackets when/if you need it.

They are NOT colored nor is poor art put on it. If you want good art you are going to spend more than 7 dollars.

The templates are 2x2 per page or 4 templates per sheet.

I have only two minor complaints.
1) Sometimes the celestial and fiendish templates are off due to an oddball singleton monster. Which puts the celestial and fiendish on separate pages. It might be nice if the celestial and fiendish versions were available to print front and back of the card.
2) The summoned creatures page in the Bestiary page isn't on the template. This is sometime helpful especially for DMs who want to spot check the template on the creature.

These are very minor complaints and overall it is a great product.

This product is cheap, a time saver, easy to read, full of the info you need, and to top it all off it is low ink.


OK

***( )( )

The product is priced well; its a time savings.

The cards are 4 per page (not 3x5), Celestial to the left and Fiendish to the right.

I only have two grips which would had made this a 5 out of 5 instead of a 3 out of 5:

1) Would had been nice to separate all the Celestial from the Fiendish creatures (Celestial I-IX then Fiendish I-IX) - I rarely cast Fiendish versions. Or perhaps place the Fiendish on the next page so when you printed them the Fiendish would be on the back of the Celestial.

2) I'm a sucker for art and wish the cards had ornate borders and watermarks - looks too plain, but can't complain because of the price.

My suggestions to the author:

1) Append a new chapter of the same data but Celestial only.
2) Append a new chapter of the same data but Fiendish only.
3) Organize the original content to print Fiendish on the back of Celestial.
4) For these new sections of the same data, add ornate art to the cards

Thanks.
