Best Poster for your Game Room - EVAR!

5/5

Wayne Reynolds once again strikes with an evocative piece that is guaranteed to make you smile when you're in the middle of flavor text at the next game you host.

This poster is perfect for bachelors living on their own with their game room/living room to be decorated at their leisure. This is probably Wayne's best work since he started in the industry and when you have it hanging, you won't find that statement untrue.

Thank you Wayne and Paizo!

Pathfinder Poster Review

1/5

Good day all
It is interesting that they are selling posters. You see the one thing my group hates about Pathfinder is the crap art. My DM came up with the theory that the artist is sleeping with the executive who okays art.
I just think everyone over there would not know good art if it bit them on the arse. The over-sized weapons and disproportionate bodies are gross. Well if Wizards of the Coast has to be better than Paizo at something that is the least harmful.
Too bad because the game and the scenarios are really good. Rise of the Rune Lords was a hoot to play. We all like this better than that other RPG; you know the one with 4 in it's name.


A great poster.

5/5

There is no other way to say it.

Sold! Can I add it to my next outgoing Pathfinder Superscriber order?


Wohoo! Ordered!
...Wait, strike that, no way I'm paying $26.70 to ship a $6.99 poster.
Sigh, damn international shipping.

We do not yet support combining other orders with Subscription shipments. However, even if we did, these posters are shipped in their own tube, so they'd ship seperately anyway and would cost just as much to ship. So why wait?

Dark Archive

Question how big is it? I am assuming normal poster size, like you see in walmart and other places but thought I should check.

Can we use the PFRPG promotion for this? Pretty please?


This...needs to go next to the first Worldwide D&D Game Day banner I have. :D

It's 34" tall and 22" wide. Unless I did my math wrong. Which has been known to happen.

Sold.

You guys have been getting way to much of my money this week. :-/

But I like!

Ok cool thats what I assumed it would be. A typical movie poster or there abouts. I just remember once a friend of mine ordered a poster and it was like 12 by 20 or so, about half the size you would expect.


This poster is so amazing, it sucks the light out of my office. Seriously. It's a gravitational singularity from which both awesome and light cannot escape.

So glad you put this up the same day I put together my latest order. In fact, if I had finished the order before we went out to dinner, I would have missed it. Yay cigar discount!

$5.53 for UK shipping?!?!?

Damn, the USPS is really ripping off the rest of Europe (and the rest of the world I'd wager).
Someone should tell them (the USPS) that those insane prices are costing a lot of American companies international sales, which I'm sure isn't exactly helping the current financial situation everywhere.

I think $5.53 is Standard Postal Delivery as it's the same to fin.


So does that mean that PFRPG is going back to the 3.5 ruleset, or that this is just meant to be a bit misleading?

Hmmm...

I am going to assume that is a rhetorical question. I'm trying hard to read it in a tone that is not snarky, but I'm struggling.

Don't dance around the issue, if you've got something to say: say it.

OH..............hell yah!!!!

Must put order in today for this!!

thanks guys!!

Hey, count your lucky stars... it could take 3 months on a wooden sailing ship, weather permitting... Transporting a parcel of any size across the Atlantic for $5.53 is a relative bargain. :)

Just to make sure I'm not misunderstood here:

I'd gladly pay $5.53 for the shipping, but when I put one of these bad boys in the shopping cart yesterday I got a shipping quote of $26.70! Hence my initial "outrage."
Don't know if that was a mistake, because I just ordered one again and this time around I got the $5.53 shipping quote. So, make mine a Paizo!


I definately have to get this to hang in my game room(basement)!

I don't know if it Pathfinder excitement or what, but my local group is up to 7 players plus me DMing. I haven't had this much interest in the game in years.

Right?

Well, I'm just looking at what has been said, such as:

PFRPG FAQ wrote:

A new RPG? Why not just stick with 3.5?

In a sense, that's exactly what we are doing. All Pathfinder products will be written for the 3.5 rules set until August 2009, at which point new releases will transition to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules. That means that Legacy of Fire (the current Adventure Path) uses the 3.5 rules, but Council of Thieves (which begins in August, 2009) will use the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Both rules sets are similar enough that conversion between the two will be an easy affair for most Game Masters.

The core rulebooks for the 3.5 rules system are already out of print, and we feel it is important to keep a core game available to new players. Plus, as great as 3.5 is, there remains room for improvement. The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game enjoyed a year of open, public playtesting, making it the most robustly playtested game in the history of tabletop RPGs! We're sure you will find many of the changes intriguing and worth consideration for your campaign.

Seems pretty clear that Paizo believes that PFRPG and 3.5 are different. This poster seems to confuse that.

Dark Archive

Well 3.0 and 3.5 where techincally different too but similar enough to be collective referred to as 3rd edition and close enough that products from one to the other was very simple to tweak and use.

Not speaking for Paizo but I think their point is PFRPG is close enough that you can use all the old 3.0 and 3.5 stuff with little work.

So I guess it depends on your point of view if the poster is or is not misleading. To me it isn't cause i can use the 3.5 products with it.

I believe they will, but hopefully either Vic or Gary will confirm. Gary had to write new code specifically for these posters. My understanding is that you can't combine them with other non-poster items, but that a number of the same posters will ship in the same poster tube. But since I didn't write the code, I could be wrong. :)

Although I couldn't care less about the confusion it creates, I admit that the added text turned me off for buying it myself - it half ruins the great WAR illustration for me.

But then I can see why that's a good marketing move for a poster in a FLGS's window.

Paizo Employee Creative Director

The poster is a marketing device, aimed at fans of 3.5 who are disappointed that their favored game is no longer supported. Since Pathfinder is built from 3.5's SRD and is quite compatible with those rules, 3.5 lives on in Pathfinder and thus thrives AND survives. Since it's marketing... essentially a giant advertisement... the poster's goal is to get its point across fast and without cluttering up the art that much, which I think it does quite well.

It's not meant to be a full explanation as to what the Pathfinder Core RPG is, why it exists, and what's inside. That's the job of the game store owner, in theory, or of whoever put the poster up in the first place, I guess...

Ah, so the deal is it is "marketing" and we know how truth and marketing go hand in hand *wink, wink*. Got it.

I also have to wonder if anyone else is confused by the wording on the poster, or if you're simply awkwardly angling for a way to nitpick, to be honest.

Some people just think they're clever, James.

I think I'm clever. Oh, wait. That's not what you mean.

Call it nitpicking if you want, but the sooner Pathfinder gets its own identity separate from 3.5 the better as far as I am concerned.

I already can’t say I play ‘D&D’ because that means 4th edition to most people. I thought I was safe when I said I play ‘3.5’, now I can’t even do that because people say 3.5 when they mean Pathfinder.

To be clear, I wish no ill will on Pathfinder, If Pathfinder is your game and it you enjoy it, I am happy for you. That said, if someone says they are playing ‘3.5’ I want to be able to show up with my 3.5 players handbook and play, not get weird looks and have people point to their Pathfinder books and say ‘oh, no we meant the *new* 3.5’.

I think that is pretty unlikely.

I've never seen anyone not be clear which d20 based system they are going to play, be it True 20, Conan RPG, Mutants & Masterminds, whatever. The only real difference is that PFRPG was designed to be compatible with the existing 3.5 source material. Something few, if any of the other varients do.

Gamers are pretty proud of their rules system of choice, as evidenced by the still common 3.5/4e friction in some places. I'm sure groups playing Pathfinder will be sure to lets folks know that you need not bring your PHB. (Of course in the end these are only my thoughts/opinions and what the hell do I know?)

James, quick reply. I shared this item with 8 players, and all understood the message, and were not confused.

Darkwolf, for me this already happens. As a 3.5 fan, I look for 3.5 posts here. I have seen a fair number of Posts marked ‘Pathfinder/3.5’, 90% of the time a post says this, it means Pathfinder. For another example, there was a game posted as Pathfinder/3.5 in my area. I figured it meant Pathfinder but as it was listed with 3.5, I asked what game system was to be used (it was a new campaign, so I thought he may have been willing to go with either rules set based on the players that replied). It was for Pathfinder.

Now I know as a 3.5 player who is not a Pathfinder player, that makes me a fish out of water on this forum and things like the confusion above should be expected and I am OK with that, but with plans to market the Pathfinder as ‘3.5 thrives’ I expect Pathfinder = 3.5 to be more common.

I'm curious Tiger Tim, if a DM would be glad to have you in his Pathfinder game, playing a 3.5 character, what would be your reaction? I can certainly see plenty of reasons to turn it down, I'm just curious how you'd consider an offer like that.

I've run separate editions together before [1st and 3.5, 3.0 psionics & 3.5 psionics, etc.), so this is an option for me when I'm looking for players.
