An amazing supplement with flavor never seen before in Pathfinderjudas 147 —
The book is amazing a must have. Perhaps you´ll think it is kind of expensive, but it worth every cent spended on it.
The only thing I could complaint is the art of monsters, I would love to see the art in Cthulhu´s Portfolio, but the miniatures from Cthulhu wars are ok.
the revised monsters from pathfinder are amazing, gugs now are scary as hell.
I put 5/5 but if i could i would give it 1000/5
It has flaws, a few, but at the end you really won´t care about them
Well, the idea was good, the material has potential, then what happened?judas 147 —
I will say the things I said before (an expensive pdf for something you probably will never use)
Character options: Shifter class; it have a good starting levels, also, combining it with other classes could even stand alongside with the barbarian... could. but in the end, you will be the guy using the barbarian.
Archetypes: they are all bad. really, non of the archetypes had something to offer to say "hey! I want to try this" It´s like the issue with the Trapper ranger archetype; sounds good, yeah, in your mind but it crashes at the table"
There are a starving orc, really, the mere image made me sad (rot warden) also, none of the art are inspirational, nor make the archetype atractive: Besides the rot warden, there are a storm caller who inspires nothing but a random npc. there are a psychic archetype walking over water?
The races are ok, they weren´t needed but ok.
Feats: more feats, thank you paizo, now we are near the 3k official feats.
Spells: more of the same.
enviromental rules: this is one of the best parts of the book but again, you, as a gm must work on the rules to make them actually work (but for when that times comes, you will be using something else instead). The herbs as ingredients has a potential, but again, useless due the over ruling on it.
There is a bestiary; second best part of the book, but neither needed.
Conclusion; I love pathfinder, i won´t change to another system since this is where i want to be, but man, with books like this you should learn that if you didn´t playtest your upcoming rules, and if you dont listen to your customers, your ship will be going to crash.
I´m thinking that this book was made this bad as an excuse to drown Pathfinder to focus on starfinder or something (I hope they don´t since there are a lot of ppl incluiding me, who doens´t like space opera)
Cheers guys, I know you would do better next time.

At last a "new" mechanicsjudas 147 —
I like the book, and the options...
Ok let´s see
i dislike the reroll option... i dont know, it feels rare
Mythic Magic item: i felt this chapter some kind of empty... the needless part from this book.
Thank you paizo, i like this one, now my campaigns can last a bit more!!
4/5 because is a good material, "new" at all for the 3.X system (there was a post where we talk about epic like the druid with trials and voilá!)
Feats and Spells scalating (i wish unique option, maybe a some kind of new system to cast spells... Maybe using spells like force skills from SWD20)
Behind the book, and everything it has inside... I can see a more growing up Paizo, with more fresh ideas, and their own rules (also, if they decide the next step for PFRPG is levelling without XP, t´will fine for me)!!
Now we are talkingjudas 147 —
Every change is in most of cases both:, Flavorlful and utiity. im not going to specif what it has inside, the other reviewers do it so well that i have nothing more to tell about.
This is a mix between ranger and rogue, in fact, this is the way i always want to play a ranger without spells!!

a not so lot of pawnsjudas 147 —
great pawns, sadly, there are a lot monsters that stay at the adventure!!
Very Neat!!judas 147 —
This box comes to save my wallet some months ago!!
its a huge box with a lot of pawns, there are missing creatures and maybe paizo decides colossal sizes were too expensives (i agree with them), actualy, no minis nor pawns are realy needed to play the game, but this is a great adition to it.
Congrats paizo, this stuff was a great move that keep me waiting for more.
i already buy the RotRl and Skull & Sackles pawns (i dont run those paths, but there more monsters some of which were missing from this box and now i have a lot of pawns)
The only thing i dont like about this box, is that you dont have how to storage inside after you cut this from the pages!!
the issue isn´t a huge deal, with some GM power, you can figured how to store them (the very box were this box came to you will provide a lot of material to deal with)
also, i want to recommend this!!
Good, More Pawns!!judas 147 —
i buy this one monday 6th at amazon, today it arrives, very hasty timing Cheers for amazon!!
Good pawns, i dont realy care the absence of bases in this expansions, and the fact that pawns haven´t colossal sizes!!
but what can annoying me, is the fact that theres a lot of missing creatures and npcs from this, and rotrl!!
Still a great buy to add to my collection of pawns
a great book, please, where in golarion can i put the Midgard?judas 147 —
Ok, maybe for someones the book is not so good!!
There is no classes inside, its ok, i would prefer one or two but i can handel it.
what you will find inside this pages is a lot of flavor, old and beautiful flavor!!
I want a golarion as flavorful as Midgard
There are a lot of races to expand with the ultimate race guide, there are some new spells. feats and items. I also love the traits per nation!!
Seriously, im still waiting for the traits for every etnithy in the iswg!!
Great game, my second purchase from midgard (the 1st one was the crossroad and there is one of my favorite class: The Shadowsworn)

Half the way because two thingsjudas 147 —
i´ll be very fast in this one!!
This book have a great use for you if you are new to the game and gming and the rules... otherwise, stay away from it.
For experienced GM, this one has a town, town-name, tavern-name generator, a useful npcs with boons and some traps and curses and poisons and so (things that an experienced gm knows how to work with, without a book at all).
veredict: buy this one only if youre collecting all the books, or if youre new to the gming system!!

good book at all, it has evrything you need, and things you dont!!
its good book, short, but you dont need more
Maybe in the future, the paizo crew may give us some companion for the race builder with more options for all!!
and in one future, maybe we can see some class builder, just like the race builder!!
Pathfinder the Bestiaryjudas 147 —
great one, some draws are so ugly, without creativity at all (sphinx)
but it is a bestiary, 3rd printing which i have!!
i always love the monsters and bestiaries and call them how you preffer, i want more bestiaries!!
one gothic bestiary would be nice (with carrion crown monsters and alike)

i love this one, i buy it when it was a brand new book, but i have doesn´tt read it yet... i love a lot of things, hate some others.
the bestiary part is great, the prestiges classes are good...
theres a lot of etnities for humans, but i also will love if came options for every one in here (i have to make my own, and there is not a description of what every human likes to do in theyre homelands)

jeeezzz Again? Paizians crew, be professionals please!!judas 147 —
its a Good item compendium (not so good as 3.5 magic item compendium but its ok)
something annoyin is the fact that always paizians sell a book there will [and it WILL] be a lot of issues.
Few words and one example:
Paizians, p. 370 Table 7-13, tell me the weapons from 66-84 please!!
ultimate magic, rrrrright!!judas 147 —
this book owes its selling rate for the Magus.
lazy feats, some options are good, some others just dotn´
Spellblights: interesting but too complex for a fumble system
feats: ok those are feats
Magic spellbooks: why you dont just paraphrase some words concerning about how to protect the spellbooks with some spells and thats all. maybe a feat or two for scaling this option, besides the spellbooks looks greats.
spells: again, the magus options are great.
my advice for you: buy the book, cut the pages concerned for magus, and dump the rest or Download the pdf at any place you can, print the magus and drop the rest

again robbed by paizians!!judas 147 —
ugly classes, the gunslinger has nothing to do versus a wizard with a shotgun!! his lost!!
samurai: an ugly and awful alternative for the worst class in the whole game: the cavalier
Ninja: if u will us it, then you can start to think how to say "good bye" to the rgue and the monk
archetypes: read the first one for the cleric. really, youll gain 1 extra feat every five levels?
Feats: ok those just feats, maybe one or two kind of good but nothing else!!
Equipment: at last, a good chapter, good items, good suplies, good, thats all just good
alternative rules: seriusly, stop to doing that, i believe the piecemeal armor will be good, but, it wont!!
Spells: one or two are good, but nothing else
this is an issue kind of "ups-i-did-it-again" stuff
i just felt like when i by the Rule of Fear book
In a Gothic Horror´s Adventurejudas 147 —
there was upon a time, where the mist abduct your players from theyre native world and drop them in a misty land where any npc have question and needs!!
this plug-in reminds me that very feeling!!
you need to explore the town, talk with the people who lives at one place without a leter on it (for example an N in the map for lorrimor´s place)...
very flavorful, little creepy, with more ties to the town and the mob than in the vanilla AP my players enjoy it and one of them almost cried at the end (i can´t say how it was because the spoilers ¬¬)...
Thanks legendary games!!
i wish the AP for wich its was designed were almost a half flavor rich as this article is!!
i also buy the Fiddler´s Lament (still reading it and waiting for running it then i will reviewed it in its place)
Where is Carrion Hill again?judas 147 —
1.- the map is awesome great detail with it
in advice to buyers... this is not the same as varisian and korvosa reviews there was good enough that just happen once in this books.
in page 30 it refeers to explain a carrion hill altar and... there is not a carrion hill at all in any way to mention it... where is carrion hil???
is a lazy setting... maybe with it issues...
