A Solid Compromise Between Paper Minis and Solid MinisDover Pro —
I decided to pick this up after I ran the introductory adventure from The Beginner Box. I had a lot of fun assembling the pawns from that box and placing them on the map for use during the adventure. I don't have the storage space or the budget to buy plastic or metal miniatures. I also don't have the craft skills to make paper minis. So, for me, pawns fit my requirements for miniature figures. The artwork is cool and they store easily in the Beginner Box or their own box.
Just Not EngagingDover Pro —
This review is based on the review I wrote on Goodreads:
This was the second Pathfinder Tales book I read.I found the female lead to be thoroughly unlikable and I was completely unable to relate to her. The male lead was acceptable in a naif-ish way, but I haven't got a clue about how his quirk magic ability works in Pathfinder terms. I found the plot somewhat engaging, except when the female lead was taking action. The ending is best described as rushed, predictable and flat.
Useful Supporting DetailsDover Pro —
This supplement is full of useful detail about Elves in the Golarion setting. It's important to my own campaign, for example, because of the player characters is an Elf and lives in Varisia. With this book, I am able to tell him about where his character comes from in Varisia.
Pathfinder Campaign Setting: The Inner Sea World Guide (PFRPG)Paizo Inc.
An Engaging SettingDover Pro —
This was the first Pathfinder Campaign Setting product I bought. That would have been early in 2013. I was curious about the references to Golarion in the Core Rule Book and wanted to know more. I got what I wanted in spades! This is an excellent resource for the Golarion setting.
I recently bought the PDF because I forgot where I had put my hard copy. It's excellent because I can just open the file on my computer, find what I'm looking for with a bookmark and I'm good to go.
GameMastery Module D1: Crown of the Kobold King (OGL)Paizo Inc.
Cool Adventure and Town SettingDover Pro —
This module was my introduction to Nicholas Logue's work. The adventure outline has a lot of cool content and there are designer notes about why things are the way they are in the adventure. The encounters can be insanely dangerous. That's a design feature of Golarion and adventures written for that setting. The town of Falcon's Hollow is well-detailed and is a nasty, downbeat place. It's grim, but I feel that motivated player characters could make a difference and make it a better place.
Pathfinder Adventure Path: Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition (PFRPG)Paizo Inc.
Excellent Supplementary MaterialDover Pro —
This was the first full Adventure Path I bought. I was looking for inspiration for material set in Sandpoint after running the introductory adventure from the Beginner Box. I have been adapting the plot and setting elements from Rise of the Runelords for the past three years to flesh out my own adventures and campaign arc. I substituted my own version of Thelsikar for Karzoug as the main villain.
This Box Rocks!Dover Pro —
After I bought the Core Rulebook, I was a bit overwhelmed. So I picked up the Beginner Box next. The rule books made the game much more accessible to me. Rules I didn't quite get from the Core Rulebook were simplified in a way that made sense to me. Also, the introductory adventure was easy to run and the suggestions for expanding sparked my creativity. I liked the explanations the GM's book gave for the several different kinds of adventures and the content that makes them up.
A Fresh StartDover Pro —
After years of seeing the Pathfinder rule books on the shelves of my FLGS, I took the plunge in December of 2012. I bought the Core Rulebook and began skimming it immediately. My first discovery was the character creation rules. They were fun! Characters were cool in a way that I hadn't seen in previous editions of the world's oldest role-playing game. Within three months, I was up and running my first Pathfinder adventure. That was three years ago and I have no regrets getting involved with the Pathfinder system.
