Slipping on the art

***( )( )

Art art art.......Need to step up on the art for the cards. Detail in the items are key to maintain the "Unique" item status for the card sets. If every longsword or bow looks similar from set to set then why buy new sets? Over all a good selection of items though.


Very nice and very useful!

*****

You simply cannot have enough armors and weapons. And this set does exactly that with almost every weapon out there, some with a twist or an innovative description. Gets the creative juices flowing from a GM's point, alsso from a player's point of view (give a cool description and players make up their own backstories for the weapons which the GM can then use, or not). Excellent stuff, love them!


Not my style

**( )( )( )

I didn't like the style of the art on these cards very much. Most items look a bit too cartoony, and several of the swords, especially the bastard sword, look a bit weird, with hilts that are too small and thin for their blades. Many of the other weapons are roundish and "bubbly", not managing to give you the sense that they are made from hard wood and sharp metal.
That said, there are some really great pieces in here that I will be using in my games, and the quality of the cards themselves are very good, although the art is disappointing.


A fine set and a great idea

****( )

Really, every GM knows that regardless of whatever awesome and curious magic items and artifacts he throws out there, what the players want most is magic weapons. Having a 54 card deck of just weapons is a very good plan. Some of the weapons in this set are interesting or slightly strange/unusual, which is fine by me. I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

What I'd really like to see next is a 54 card deck entirely full of armor. Or maybe armor and clothing.

Oh, to clear something up real quick, this set was not actually done by the same artist as Second Darkness.


All weapons, disapointing art

***( )( )

I looked through all the cards as soon as I received the pack and I was happy to see all the weapons. I was disappointed with the art of several of the weapons, though most of them were good enough with a couple being amazing. In particular, the spear looked too elaborate, even if it was magical.

The weapon labeled as falchoin isn't even a falchoin. It is a type of short sword, and the handle clearly isn't for two handed use.

Beside those complaints I am happy with the product and will be using them as often as I can.

Can't get enough item cards. Will this be new items or a collection of the oldies but goodies? And, most importantly, will Dutrait be illustrating?

They'll be all-new cards. I think the artist is yet to be finalized.

I thought wrong. They'll be by Christophe Swal, who will be making his Item Card debut in the Wondrous Treasure deck that's about to ship.

We would have loved to have had Vincent Dutrait continue to do the Item Cards, but he got a bit burned out on doing them, so he asked us to give them to someone else for a while. Vincent is doing some pretty kickass art for us for Legacy of Fire though!

Truer words have seldom been spoken amidst this community. The cards in these collections are pure gold. Heck, I've even used one or two as visual references for commissions I pay for at conventions.

On a very related note, I would support adding module items to these great card sets. My players do enjoy getting cards when they find stuff.


Heh. I'd like to see an item card set with a pistol/revolver and a rifle (with bayonet?) in it, but I won't hold my breath for those.

Steam Punk pistols and rifles with or without bayonets are excellent ideas. If Paizo ever does an item card set for Steam Punk adventures with either or both those items I know I'd want a copy.

I just noticed there's a pistol in the Dragon's Trove deck. I haven't seen it but I'm guessing it's like a single-shot dueling pistol?

Oh well, my request for a pistol/revolver and a rifle stands. I have a PC in my campaign with two masterwork six-shot revolvers. Plus I might like to run a Western campaign at some point.

I don't have the 110 card Dragon's Trove yet but it just went up a few notches on my wish list. (I prefer the 54 card decks though because they're easier for my budget to swallow.)

OH! You know what else would be AWESOME?! A sword cane! I'm just saying.


Yep..they are great for DMs and players alike. Also nostalgic for all of us that remember a similar try from wizards in the days of adnd.

PS: Have a look at the Gamescape pdfs on this site.I find their story card line an interesting addition to my collection.


I really hope this deck will have a bastard sword and katana or two. So far I've only seen one bastard sword at all amongst the card collections thus far.

It'll be interesting to see if the pathfinder adventure paths take a tour of the Grand Duchy of Alkenstar: Magic-Dead Scientific Microstate. If they do, you'll surely get your wish for pistols and the like for the item card set for that adventure.


The cards are great and are a hit with our group. One thing though, I have yet to see a net. I just noticed now that I was using some treetop monsters that net their opposition from above, I've searched all my sets and can't find a net. This would be a good set to release this in.


Halfspears have yet to be represented as well as nets.

I want more!!!! :O)

Any chance for a list eventually? I know a ways off but hey never hurts to ask.

Will these weapons be as fancy as the ones in the other set - ones that look like unique magic items - or will they be simpler - more like mundane weapons?


Mosaic wrote:

Which "other" set? I think most sets allow you to treat the items as mundane or magical. Some look fancier than others, but looking fancy and being magical aren't really the same thing. Even a mundane non-masterwork weapon could look attractive, it could just have poor balance/bad workmanship that keeps it out of the masterwork category.

On the one hand, I love when weapons look unique, but on the other I also hope there are some fairly mundane-looking weapons so they can fill in the gaps between the unique ones. The only great sword card I remember having right now is the one from Elements of Power. It looks very distinctive with a bit more "eastern" flair. Hmm... I'll have to check my Essentials deck. According to the item listing, there's a great sword in that deck too and I don't remember it at all.

I got Dragon's Trove so have the pistol in that set now (I mentioned maybe getting it above) but I'd still like to see a revolver-type pistol and a rifle w/ bayonet in a 54 card deck. I'd also like to see a net. Had the party brought down by a group of primitive humanoids with nets once. Oh, and a sword cane! Can't forget the sword cane.

Any news yet on what's going to be in this set?

I was confused. There's not a great sword in Elements of Power. I was thinking of the one in my Essentials deck.

That having been said, I'd like to see some of the less-represented martial weapons in Weapons Locker.

Vic, or any one with the answer, is there a place or a PDF or something that has the symbols of the cards so I know what deck they have come from. I am purchasing some of the older Heros Hoard and Relic of War boosters and know I have some already but want to complete the set.

Yet right now all the cards I have are in a folder ( actually multiple folders) and I combine the same art work together so it is a little hard for me to see what was with what set.

If you guys had a place or file that had the symbols that are on the cards telling me what set they came from that would be awesome.

If not I will work on making one my self just it will take longer.

Sorry rambling a bit there.

D'oh. IE, for some dumb reason, won't display CMYK JPEGs. I'd converted this one to RGB as soon as I got it from the art department, but then it looks like I uploaded the CMYK version anyway! Should be fixed now, though.

Just saw some of the artwork on Christophe Swal's website - looks pretty darn good. I loved Vincente's artwork in the first packs but Christophe's stuff is great too (still hate the Second Darkness cards).

Yeah, I think I am going to like those.


*sighs* Well no guns or a sword cane, but I still foresee myself buying multiple copies of this deck.

My players are always salvaging the weapons of enemies they slay. I need lots of weapon cards so I can keep track of who is carrying what and better enforce encumbrance.

More ammunition cards! There aren't enough arrows, bolts etc...

Ammunition cards would be a great excuse for a new random set.

I mean ammunition is something I'd like to have duplicates of.

I was just looking at the listing of items in this set and I'm wondering, is there a reason they aren't sorted alphabetically in the set?

Yep... somebody forgot that was important. Hopefully it won't happen again.


Nice to see another Bastard Sword. Also good to see a full selection of monk weaponry. Still no katana though. I'll keep hoping! :)

Scarab Sages

Man, I'm hooked. I used the Thanksgiving weekend sale to order cut-rate booster packs of Relics and Hero's Hoard. Just to try and fill in the three or four cards I don't have in each set. Maybe I should pass on this set . . .

.... ahh, who am I kidding? Preorder time.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

I've added sample cards. Also, note that while the set contains a few cards by Christophe Swal as previously reported, most of the cards were illustrated by Kieran Yanner and Abyssal, Inc.


I think there is a mitstake here : the Short Sword is from Christophe Swal and not from Kieran Yanner. And some sketches from Christophe Swal was also used to do colors (as the Dwarven spear axe here)... I think it should be clarified.

Your pics above just prove to me a digital version of these decks would RAWK!

BTW, the pics above work just fine for my needs, so I hope that means doing up a digital product version would not be hard to do. As it is I only get to use these cards in my home game, but none of the 4 games I play or run on line using Maptools from RPTools.net.

Then again, its probably best you don't, I might feel bad if I turned the 12 or so people I play on line with into Paizo junkies like myself.

The answer for Item Cards is the same as it is for Map Packs: Several of us believe that if we offered them in PDF form, a significant number of gamers would choose the PDF edition exclusively over the print edition, which would mean smaller print runs for the print edition, which—since print costs are based largely on volume—would in turn mean higher costs for the print edition, which would lead to even smaller sales for it, which would mean we wouldn't have a profitable line anymore. So, it's just not in the cards.

If we want to pull back the curtain and really look into the sausage factory for a moment - looking at all the ugly details no one really should want to consider before biting into their delicious Item Card bratwust - this set of cards had a particularly unfortunate number of setbacks and problems.

As printed - said with the authority of one holding the entire printed set in his hands - every card and the credits card bears a credit for "Abyssal, Inc." The reason for this is twofold: as I'm told Abyssal either produced or tinkered with every illustration in the set, and our graphic designers (a team separate from those who order the art) are used to laying out entire sets with a single illustrator (as every previous set has had). As the finals for the entire set came from a single studio, that studio was credited for the entirety of the work.

In truth, another artist was hired to work on this set, but that artist was unable to complete the set for us. In the end, Abyssal, Inc. was able to take up the uncompleted project and finished the work with commendable skill and alacrity.

Ultimately, it works out that about eleven cards: sickle, mace, blowgun, javelin, club, dagger, throwing axe, pick, sap, falchion, and quaterstaff, (and perhaps one or two others that unfortunately slipped through the cracks with our recent FTP house cleaning and Abyssal's considerable work) were taken a measure of the way through the process by the original artist. As it's not our policy to air our dirty laundry online, I'd like to leave the matter at that, which I'm sure the original artist would appreciate.

It turns out that the three card fronts added earlier this week were non-final drafts; I've replaced them with finals, which credit Kieran Yanner's studio, Abyssal, Inc., instead of Kieran himself.

How about releasing a digital version 3 months after the print run? Or after the cards have sold out? Something like that?

Like I posted earlier, my needs would be for me to have both.

Besides, with these being as colorful as they are, the cost of printing them, on far inferior card stock as far as I have found in STAPLES, etc..., its actually cost EFFECTIVE to just buy your cards to also get the superior production quality.

Then again, people would have to be smart enough to see the value/cost differences, so maybe that isn't an effective point...


So... dwarven urgrosh became dwarven spear axe?

Yup. Since item cards are system-neutral, they don't use the OGL. Since they don't use the OGL, we can't really use words that Wizards of the Coast made up. And so we renamed the urgrosh and a few other weapons to make them generic rather than make this set the only one to have an OGL statement printed in it.

I've updated the card list to match the finished set.


You know, I also play "gritty" RPG's such as Warhammer and Hackmaster, and it would be nice to have "poor" looking weapons, armor, robes, and the like for RPG's like these.

I've been hoping for some less flashy weapons and armor for some time, stuff I could use for mundane as well as magical. These look really nice and possibly less unique (no crystal shields of flaming rapiers), but I would buy several sets of "ugly" weapons and other items.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

I'm enjoying the nice variety this set has. However, after dividing all of my cards from all the sets I own into categories I noticed that my armor stack is very thin. Any possibility of an Armor Locker Deck in the future?

Is there any current set that has a fair amount of armor I should pick up? I don't have Essentials yet, so I know I should get that for a basic line up.

I also want to second the vote for more arrows and bolts in future sets.
