My words per session are going to drop considerably if I just have to point at a card instead of reminding people every. damn. attack. that they get +5 to hit.

Brilliant, elegant simplicity! A great idea to make every game session just a little bit better.

OK, time for someone at HQ to 'fess up - who's home game was it when somebody uttered the line "You know - wouldn't it be neat if......."?

Love it! I will haz it.

Turns out, when somebody asks that question here, it sometimes ends up on the product schedule. :D

I hope at least SOME goblins makes it to the artwork, so they won't just be the negative status effect models for all time...

Love it! This has been a long time coming.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I love the condition deck, we use it all the time in my game. This will quickly be adopted as well.

Shadow Lodge

YES! I was excited when we first discussed it on these boards, now I'm ecstatic! Pre-ordered, and hopefully it will come in time for my birthday in May! :D Paizo, YOU ROCK!


Want please.


Sold! *drools*

Hazaa! Added to want list.

The really good news is that I can take 'Create buff cards' off my to do list.

Taldor

Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

I'll have to add it to my to get list.


I love this idea a lot, it would be cool if the card where clear plastic card, with the buffs that don't stack covering each other so you could just look at the top and see all the buffs you have, probably to expensive and a little late.

Looking forward to using them

Shadow Lodge

I'm wondering how they're going to incorporate increasing bonuses, such as a Bard's Inspire Courage.

I'm really hoping they might have some blank cards too so that custom spells or newer spells can have their own cards.

MUST! HAZ! BUFFS!!!

Ahem, ah, yes, I think I might be interested in this product


Will a single card cover one specific source of a buff (like Inspire Courage or Haste), or will they be organized by bonus types (like Enhancement or Luck)?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I imagine one specific source.

I was thinking the same thing. Given the sheer quantity of buff spells, abilities, magic items, etc, I'd think they'd pretty much have to do it by type of bonus and quantity of bonus. Otherwise, the deck would have a thousand cards.


If it is supposed to be any good, it would almost have to be by source, not bonus type. They could save space by making them double-sided (like the condition cards), and put buffs that give the same bonus type on opposite sides. I was about to give an example with Bless and Inspire Courage being on the same card since they don't stack, but then I checked again and saw that the Pathfinder version of Inspire Courage gives a Competence bonus to attack/damage, not a Morale bonus.

Also, were I making the cards I'd definitely focus on short-term buffs that come and go in a matter of rounds. Haste would definitely be in, as would Inspire Courage. Mage Armor would definitely be out.

I'd also focus on stuff that gives multiple bonuses/effects. So Haste over magic vestment. Since it's easier to remember single effects compared to multiple.

Some random +1 X bonus cards would be useful for those times you need to give out temp bonuses for stuff.

Cheliax

Wow just saw that, and shinny! Would have made a great stocking stuffer though. Just saying.

Now this is something I need two copies of. Doesn't happen often enough for me to double-up the cards subscription, but I've pre-ordered a second one of these.

Shadow Lodge

A couple of queries

1. Will the buffs included simply be core rules or will it cover a wider range of buffs? ie. from Advance Players, Ultimate Magic, Ultimate combat.

2. Will there be a means of tracking the buff type? ie. Luck, Morale, Size, enhancement, alchemical, insight, inherent etc...

Nice! Our group uses the Crit deck, Fumble deck, and the Condition cards. The Buffs deck will be a welcome addition to our gaming table.


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Are these cards all unique, or are there repeats (a la the condition deck)?

Each card is unique, except for three "blank" cards you can customize.

Paizo Employee Webstore Gninja Minion

It's my understanding that they are mostly unique.

Pathfinder Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So there's no duplicates of cards, like there were in the Conditions deck?

That seems like it could get a little ... grabby at my gaming table.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Patiently waiting. Any chane there could be duplicates like the condition cards? Lots of my players use the mass buff spells.

I can understand why there's too many different buffs for them to have duplicate cards. It just means you'll have to buy multiple decks to have several copies of the same one. And anything that affects the whole party will have to have the card thrown in the middle of the table, instead of being handed to the one person it affects.


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Will most likely be picking these up, but I'm gunna wait for the previews before I make up my mind. If they're half as useful and amusing as the Condition cards however then I'm definitely picking up a pack :D

Yep... there are 49 different buffs, plus the three blanks.

I'm actually surprised it's that few. Combing through the spell lists from every book, along with various class skills (bardic performances, etc), I would have expected 100 or more. Now you've got me curious as to what's on your list.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

Paizo card packs are standardized at 52 cards, so something's gotta give.


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

It's a shame they're not double sided, presuming some have been left out. I guess knowing which to pair would be a complicated issue.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yea, the condition cards were double-sided since the effects were generally related.

But to be honest, I'm not sure what is needed other than 26 cards of Inspire Courage and 26 cards of Haste.

Maybe one of Transformation.

Paizo Employee Lead Designer

I will be happy to go into the methodology on these once we are a bit closer, but to put it simply, when you comb though all the effects, there are some that simply do not warrant a card, due to a very short duration or due to effects that that just would not make sense for this sort of tool.

More to come soon.

I do not know how I missed this but I am glad I did because now I only have to wait about two months instead of four. Maybe I should just stay off the boards and be surprised when my shipment shows up every month.


LOVE ... IT ...


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Maps Subscriber

I think I need to get these. I know at our tables, we've had a devil of a time remembering all the different buffs that we get added in. Having a card handy, even at the center of the table for everyone to reference, would be a huge plus versus each of us lugging out Core books and continually flipping between the buffs we have and the other rules we need to find.
