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):

Spoiler:
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.


A Pawn has no Name?

***( )( )

The pawns are, as always, high quality. The art is fantastic (I noticed a few reprints, but they're good pieces), and there is a nice diverse set of figures included.

However, unlike previous sets, the pawns in this set don't seem to have names, numbers, or labels at the bottom, nor is there a list of what pawns are in the set on the back cover.

This may not seem like a big problem, but it makes it impossible to include these pawns in my collection without completely changing the way I organize them. The lack of a pawn list on the back cover also makes it easier for me to lose pawns from this set, since I can't exactly keep inventory once I've popped them out of their frames.

They don't even say which pawn set they're from on them, which has been standard for pawn sets since after Runelords.

I don't know if this was intentional, or an oversight, but it's an unwelcome change to an otherwise great product line.
