Look, I don't want to be "that guy" again, but we really need better proofreading for those things. There is no such thing as 'Bluff' in Pathfinder 2e. C'mon, this is not a first 2e product you release, yet those errors are ever present.

If you want new people to use those small quests, you need to be more clear, as they will easily get confused.

So let me get this straight: you decided to keep stuff like NPC cards or Equipment/Bestiary cards and scrapped the pawns line...?

That's... silly, to say the least. You can get more uses from pawns than from cards. Pawns can be used in plethora of systems, not just Pathfinder. Cards are useless for someone who plays, let's say, Savage Worlds or 5e. I mean, I'm not into details of the sales of Paizo products so I don't know if that's more affordable, but common sense tells me, that more people are buying miniatures than some little spell cards boxes (correct me if I'm wrong).

Obviously the decision was already made, but it's extremely disappointing, as you were the lead in the affordable flat miniature market, offering enormous collection and now it's gone. Not a fan.

Yeah, they're not turning away anybody's money, they're just not producing things from this product line right now. A lot of that may be the global paper shortage that we're still in and pawns are a much easier thing to cut out of their line than books, and pawns take a lot of paper to make. They aren't announcing sub changes until they can do it all at once because THAT will hurt customers who rely on this to keep their Advantage discount.

Then maybe they should change the Advantage discount model instead of counting a ghost subscription for how long, 3/4 of a year? Communication is key and since the only communication here is hidden inside the comments, I don't think it's fair to continue this farce.

I'd rather prefer for Paizo to get rid of flip tiles and spell/item/npc cards instead of pawns.

To be honest, they should just remove the availability dates or add just the expected quarter of the year, as the exact dates no longer hold any value. I can't remember a single book not delayed in the last 6-7 months, maybe LO:MoM was on time. Right now, I know that whatever date they announce, it will be delayed and immediately lowers my expectations and hype for any book. I'd prefer a mysterious date, instead of pushing it time and time again.


If anyone got the book in their hands, could you tell me the approximate amount of NPC statblocks, if any? I remember reading back in the day, that there will be many and I'm looking forward to those!


So we can safely start adding extra month to all upcoming releases, because this is plagueing you since March, with no hope in sight.

I had really high hopes after GenCon informations about the book and now the balloon is popped...

We can all reassure you "it's not your fault" etc. but I feel like with every passing month and yet another delay people are getting kinda angry and put their money elsewhere...

Player Character Pawns are great, but with new Ancestry Guide, it would be even better to have expanded Pawns for new races, as well as the old ones, which didn't make it to this collection.


Since the beginning of the playtest, I thought that saving throw DC is basically enemy roll vs your roll (or vice versa) - like Athletics vs Reflex roll. Someone said that it's wrong and Reflex/For/Will DC is calculated like AC - 10+modifiers (page 291 in rulebook).

Is this true? Are saving throws now a fixed value when talking about their DC? It feels kinda... weird, as you won't be able to counter many threats if your DC is always 10+something (which means you're forgoing an extra 1 to 10 value from rolling d20).
