Unusable with large collection

*( )( )( )( )

I have almost every paizo pawn set, I sort them by what set they're from and either the number or the label (alphabetically for the bestiary boxes). Without numbers or labels these are impossible for me to sort in any meaningful way. Makes the set useless for my purposes.

Paizo finally gets rid of annoying labels! Perfect starter set for your game!


After years of having to hide the labels on the bottom of my pawns from the prying eyes of the meta-gaming scum that occupies my game table, Paizo finally does me a favor by getting rid of all labels for this pawn set. This is a pure godsend as I no longer have to worry about my players trying to get game knowledge by reading the labels.

This set continues to maintain the high quality of pawns that we've come to expect from Paizo. The art is crisper and clearer than on any pawn set prior. The cardstock is sturdy and the coloring is vivid.

For Game Masters on a budget, this is the perfect starter set from which your players can choose the perfect pawn to represent their PC. When I opened this set, I immediately pulled out close to twenty pawns that will serve as NPCs for my current campaign. When passed around to new players, they all found the perfect pawn for their character right from this set.

It's great. Pick it up today and continue to build your pawn collection until world domination is achieved!

Welcome Addition


I found the lack of labels useful (though it wouldn't have hurt to number them). With this set, characters and NPCs can be who you say they are, not what the label says.

****( )

This box is a treasure chest of PC and NPC pawns. As far as I can tell, a vast majority wasn't printed as pawns before. There is a lot of art from hardcovers (often from archetypes) and PFS modules, but also a few reprints from beginner box and adventure paths.

The pawns are sorted by gender and race, but come without any names or numbers, as criticized by some people. I am neutral about the topic, just think it should have been announced openly.

Pawn breakdown (as precisely as I can say):

87 human
25 elf
25 dwarf
15 half-orc (with an orc chieftain from Giantslayer as oddball)
14 half-elf
10 halfling
10 gnome
4 orc
4 aasimar
4 drow
4 tiefling
3 ifrit
2 oread
2 sylph
2 undine
2 hobgoblin
2 hobgoblin, Eastern version (?)
2 android
2 catfolk
2 kitsune
2 strix
2 vishkanya (?)
2 tengu
1 fetchling (female)
1 gillwoman
1 ghoran (male)
1 nagaji (female)
1 samsaran (female)
1 wayang (male)
1 of each Castrovel race
6 with mask and body covered, for flexible use

6 of them are mounted (hence Large), all on horses or horse-like creatures.

So we get a bit more than 200 pawns here - more than announced, actually. Overall it's a pretty good addition, just a tad too human-centric - and without announcement of the absence of names.

Pretty art, but don't plan on ever being able to sort them

*( )( )( )( )

There's a really top-notch selection of art here, which is really great! I'm excited to see these guys and gals in pawn form. Or... I was.

However, as owners of basically every other pawn set Paizo has ever printed, we use a lot of pawns. A lot. And we have developed ways to organize this many pawns, using the lists on the back and the numbers on the pawns to organize them. If we need a pawn, we search our spreadsheet and figure out which set that pawn is in, and which number they are at, and what size they are, and then we know exactly where, and in what binder, to go to find them.

When we have pulled ten or twenty pawns out for a game and it's time to put them back, we sort the pawns based on the set, size, and number. We know exactly where each of them lives and have no trouble putting them back in the binders.

These pawns have no identifying marks whatsoever. No names, no numbers, no set abbreviations, no list on the back to help us find these. For us, this is a complete disaster. If we ever remove these from the binder we'll have no idea where they live when we go to return them to the binders. There's no set list on the back to help us inventory these--so they're not going in the inventory at all. Guess what, we can't use them at all!

If this is how any future sets are going to be formatted, we're going to have to drop our subscription, because these are completely useless to us. It's just awful.
