Key monsters and characters from the Pathfinder Society Roleplaying and Adventure Card Guilds come alive on your tabletop with the Pathfinder Society Pawn Collection, featuring more than 200 creature pawns for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, or any tabletop fantasy RPG! Printed on sturdy cardstock, each pawn presents a beautiful full-color image of a monster or NPC featured in the Pathfinder Society campaign or the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Class Decks, including classic threats like evil agents and golems; unique villains like Runelord Krune and Tygora Cinderfury; and dozens of unique pawns suitable for representing player characters—including kitsune, nagaji, tengu, and wayang characters. Each cardstock pawn slots into a size-appropriate plastic base from any of the Bestiary Box collections, making the pawns easy to mix with traditional metal or plastic miniatures. With tons of distinct images, the Pathfinder Society Pawn Collection brings eight seasons of enemies and allies to life!

The enemies and allies of the Pathfinder Society Organized Play programs come to life on your tabletop! Each has its own abbreviation and identification number for easy sorting. The Pathfinder Society Pawn Collection includes:

Not first choice, but solid

****( )

I hoped for another big package of NPC / PC pawns, and this hope was more or less fulfilled. There is a lot of material for humans (as usual) and relatively little for the other six core races (rather go for NPC Codex here). Kobolds and goblins get a lot of attention - the former pawns I mostly knew from Monster Codex already, the latter ones are mostly new to me. There is a single pawn for several planetouched races (ifrit, fetchling etc., no tiefling though) and many 'Asian races' (kitsune, nagaji etc.). Tengus and ratfolk get significantly more support: There are four tengus, even a bird rider (nice!), and five ratfolk pawns (some overlap with Monster Codex here).

The low point of this collection is the addition of several generic monsters. Yes, they are part of the announcement, but still feel like unnecessary fillers. On the plus side, there are also several unique monsters, like a female ettin, minotaur ghost (?) and colorful lamia matriarch.

Quality is great, as usual with Pathfinder pawns - not a single pawn was damaged. Finally for a 'pawn softcover' this one contains a lot of pawns (220) for a moderate price. Where AP packages cost up to 20c per pawn, this one here goes with barely more than 10c. Might be due to the high amount of Medium sized ones.

If you are a collector like me, I guess you will be content with this package - the highlights and problems cancel each other out. Maybe it's good for PFS GMs and players, don't know, not my cup of tea. In case you simply want a lot of PC pawns, you are likely better off with the Inner Sea or NPC Codex collection. Or the upcoming Heroes & Villains one.


Perfect Starter Set for N00bs & Pathfinder Society GMs Alike!

***( )( )

Paizo delivers another gorgeous set of pawns to use in your tabletop Pathfinder game. The art and card stock are of the same superior quality as previous releases. This set delivers about 300 pawns ranging from basic monsters to a variety of NPCs - both friendly and fiendish.

I had to think about this set for a couple days because my first instinct was to deduct a point for the basic monster repeats. Then I reminded myself that every pawn set is someone's first pawn set. Not every GM has a complete set of pawns on their shelves like I do. In that case, this is a great place to start.

After the Beginner's Box set, the Pathfinder Society Pawn set is the perfect place to begin building your pawn armies. It contains a wealth of NPCs and creatures. I wanted to see more NPCs from Pathfinder lore, specifically, the Pathfinder Society Venture-Captains, but I understand that despite providing the catalyst for the Pathfinder expeditions, they rarely appear outside of the Grand Lodge in combat capacity and simply don't need representation in a pawn.

That said, I do have questions about the final content as I thought there were some names mentioned in the pawn list that didn't show up in the final version such as Amara Li and Nigel Aldain who appears in the many popular Blakros Museum scenarios. I thought both were listed in the original set list, but neither appears in the final product.

If you're new to pathfinder pawns, then you'll get a mix of about 30 basic monsters and the rest of the set is devoted to a wide range of NPC that could easily double as PC pawns. If you're like me and have all of the sets, then you'll be a bit underwhelmed by the inclusion of basic monsters instead of more NPCs. That said, as my players gain levels, I find that I need more and more of the basic monsters to help build an appropriate CR challenge, so even these basic monsters can help me bulk up those numbers.

Read over the set list so you know what you're getting. If you're new to Pathfinder pawns, then bump this set to the top of your list as it gives you the basic materials to start running games today. If you're a seasoned Pathfinder Society GM, then pick up this set to help you flesh out those scenarios.

Every pawn set is someone's first set and for the rest of us, it's our next set. Pick it up today.

Edit: I had to come back to drop this set a star in the rating as it contains too many repeats. I am disappointed that the tabletop gamers trying to run Pathfinder Society were not the target market for this set. If Paizo wants a set of pawns for the card game, then they should make such a set and not subvert a set that many of us were looking forward to, but ultimately found to be disappointing.


Great collections, but so many generic monsters...

***( )( )

Pathfinder Pawns is a fantastic collection at first. It includes a lot of unique creatures found in PFS, as well as many memorable and unique NPCs of the organized play scenarios. The quality is high, the pictures very vivid, and overall this is an excellent set.

One more good point is the addition of the uncommon and featured races that PFS players can pick, such as Wayang, Kitsune, Tengu, Nagaji or the elemental races (Oread, Sylph, Undine, Ifrit). Those aren't common and they're good to have.

However, I didn't like Paizo's idea to include generic monsters (such as skeleton, ghoul, bulette, basilisk, etc.) in this set. Do these creatures appear in PFS scenarios? They do. Do most people already have a ton of these? They do. Do they need more of them, whereas they could have had other unique PFS NPCs instead? They don't. Even if we needed them, would one of these suffice to run the scenario? It wouldn't.

To give you an idea, there are 35 of them. Including the Adukhait Ashura, the deadfall scorpion or the Agash Div was a good idea since they're very specific creatures, but a skeleton, a ghoul or a babau demon? Much less attractive.

Moreover, Paizo included in this collection a few NPCs from the NPC Codex that have nothing to do with PFS (Darago, Meliski, Radillo, etc.) That's another 10 or so more pawns that I personally find unappealing for a PFS set.

I'll give you that 45 out of 206+ isn't alot, but in my book it means that there are 45 important NPCs for PFS that weren't included in this set.

Regarding Serpents Rise pawns:
For example, it's great to have all the NPC minis to run "Serpents Rise", yet... the final boss, Aram Zey, one of the most famous icons of the PFS 'verse, was surprisingly left out. While I understand that Kreighton Shaine and Marcus Farabellus aren't needed as pawns, Aram Zey is another story.

Regarding Destiny of the Sands pawns:
Thank you Paizo for giving us great minis to play what's one of my favorite series of scenarios! We have Yjalk, we have Kura Shehr, we even have Grandmaster Torch! But... where's the Sage of Plagues? Yes, it's an allip with a greenish aura, but that would have been much more interesting to have than a regular mummy, for example. Kafar, Nefti, Amenopheus, Tahonikepsu?

Many key NPCs were left out. Why? Because their failing was to have only their head portrait done in the relevant scenarios, and not a full head-to-feet one. I understand the fact that art is expensive, but we're talking about essential characters to run iconic PFS scenarios. This gives me the impression that Paizo attempted to make a PFS pawns collection but didn't want to give themselves the means of making one that would truly do justice to it.

All in all, this is a fair set, but deeply flawed in my opinion.
