Pathfinder Pawns: Shattered Star Adventure Path Pawn Collection (based on
Paizo Publishing, LLC
Key monsters and NPCs from the Shattered Star Adventure Path come alive on your tabletop with the Shattered Star Pawn Collection, featuring more than 100 creature pawns for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game or any tabletop fantasy RPG! Printed on sturdy cardstock, each pawn presents a beautiful full-color image of a monster or NPC from the Shattered Star campaign, including giants, constructs, ancient undead, Lovecraftian horrors, and dozens of unique NPCs also suitable for representing player characters. Designed for use with the Pathfinder RPG Bestiary Box, each cardstock pawn slots into a size-appropriate plastic base from that collection—making them easy to mix with traditional metal or plastic miniatures—and supplements the Bestiary Box’s creatures, together providing pawns for nearly every Shattered Star encounter. With tons of distinct creature images, the Shattered Star Pawn Collection brings to life the enemies and allies from all six adventures of the Shattered Star Adventure Path.
The enemies and allies of the Shattered Star Adventure Path surge to life on your tabletop! Each has its own abbreviation and identification number for easy sorting. The Shattered Star Pawn Collection includes:
Small (and Smaller)
1 Brain Ooze
2 Donkey Rat (2)
3 Giant Crab Spider (4)
4 Goblin Snake
5 King Zuuga
6 Larla Clankypump
7 Luonim the Vast
8 Magister Khrysm
10 Mite (5)
Even though some of the creatures are missing from the set, it includes all the NPC's from the Adventure Path and that to me is more important in the long run. Considering the Bestiary box sets will have the so called missing creatures from the set I am ok with them not being here. I would hate to have the redundancy for when I buy the Bestiary box sets.
Not knowing which ones are missing from the set is not to difficult to figure out... as I plan things kind of ahead of time it will not be hard to just look the creatures up and see which ones are not in the set and which ones are in the bestiary box sets. Do not need a list of what is NOT in them.
As far as the images being cut off.. I know they do not make the art work specifically for these pawns.. so I can live with that as it is rather minor in my opinion. I have the creature with the art I wanted to represent the encounter.. this is what matters :)
This product doesn't contain all the monsters you need to run the AP.
What's worse than that is that it doesn't even tell you which are missing! Although I suspect the missing monsters are available in the bestiary 1 set, not saying which they are and how many are needed is just poor.
Quite a few of the monsters are missing arms/legs/weapons once you pop them out because either the printing isn't aligned properly or because the image is too big.
The main selling point of these pawns is to provide everything you need to run the AP. The cost of printing a couple of extra sheets of cardboard to include everything wouldn't make this product less popular and would make it much better.
