Mild Confusion

*****

I purchased a set of these cards off of Amazon, along with the harrow handbook, and am completely satisfied with both. The artwork is beautiful and often hilarious, and I can't wait to use the archetypes in PFS. Mild confusion, however, regarding the rules for towers. I can't seem to find them anywhere. The harrow handbook says that it's in the divination book included with the deluxe harrow deck. Well, I have the aforementioned book, but haven't seen the rules anywhere. I rather like card games, and would like to be able to learn the most popular one, according to Galorian lore.


Upgrade!

*****

Definitely put in for this deck if you're considering the use of the Harrow in your games. I originally picked up my copy in anticipation for the Harrow themed medium (alas, it won't be published until well after Occult Adventures), but I'm still glad I bought the deck. Tarot sized and formatted to show off the art, they're a treat to handle and admire. I recommend picking up some tarot sized card sleeves to keep the cards in good condition.


Fantastic!

*****

I don't often write reviews since as a freelancer I try to remain as impartial as I can be. However, this particular product is a bit outside the norm so I don't feel as constrained by personal preference to avoid a review. That said, the Deluxe Harrow Deck is fantastic. I own the original Harrow Deck and have always been looking for proper "tarot" sized cards and these absolutely fill that need. The cards are made from durable stock and have a wonderfully redesigned card back that looks much more thematic than the original. I brought these to Paizocon 2014 to use with my harrow-focused Pathfinder Society character and everyone at the table wanted to look at the new Harrow deck and check out the cards. They feel so much more natural to shuffle and use during gameplay than the smaller cards and they're absolutely a must have for fans of the Harrow or if you've purchased the Harrow Handbook.

I sincerely hope Paizo produces more special edition cards/props like this in the future. With Occult Adventures on the way maybe we can get a Pathfinder planchette board! ;)


Archtypes, Background Generator, Feat, Game, Plot Device, Prop, Weapon

*****

to get best use of the deck, it is best paired with the Harrow Hand book:
http://paizo.com/products/btpy95zm?Pathfinder-Player-Companion-The-Harrow-H andbook

I love this prop. I also own the first deck, that was more playing-card sized. The deluxe deck, tarot-proportioned, feels more comfortable in my hands. Full disclosure: I suck at shuffling but the cards hanlde better in their longer size.

There is rules for a game "Towers" included with this book, bidding and bluffing. But the Handbook, link above, talks of more games. Game that could be played as a pathfinder character or by your gaming group during downtime. the games are "illusionit" and "Last Azlant"

Oh and Aroden is mentioned as part of the lore, the namesake of one of the games and linked to Harrow history. In the Harrow Handbook, above.

This is a review of the deck itself, not the book, but you will get more use out of the Harrow in your games with these together (feats, archtypes, equipment and magic items).

Another disclosure: the art is unchanged. But Kyle Hunter put alot of work into the original art, backstories, and creating them all from scratch. I do wish the art had been refined for the Deluxe Harrow Deck, by Kyle. though it was not. Admittedly the art on some of the common tarot decks is similar in style and line-work. So the art only seems less in comparison to the first Harrow deck.

I pre-ordered this and am completely satisfied with my purchase. Maybe you will too. 5 stars


If you are a Golarion-fiend like me, you need this product

*****

This deck isn't just useful for all of the colorful divination. This deck is also useful for Golarion's card games such as "Illusionist" and "Last Azlant", found in the Harrow Handbook, which is an "unnecessary must" for this product. Furthermore, you can use them as ideas for voices, settings, plots, and more on the fly.

I don't have any valid criticisms for this product. The shipping time was extremely reasonable.

Be prepared to take another step into the pool of Golarion Lore.

Harrow Cards sized as actual tarot cards? Niiiiiiiice.

Is the 55th card a how-to card again, or is there actually a 55th divinatory card that doesn't match up with an alignment/ability score combo?

I wonder if its the one mentioned in the inset of Broken Moon, the 55th card know as the "Prince of Wolves?"


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

Awesome! Been trying to get one of these for awhile now. Thanks!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Oh. Oh, yes. Having missed out on the Harrow deck, and planning to run Curse of the Crimson Throne sometime next year, this is perfect.


Is there going to be all-new art?

Grand Lodge

Nice! I'm looking forward to getting this!


How is this different than the regular Harrow deck?

Per the description, the cards are oversized, and feature a different card back than the original set.

The faces will still have the same Kyle Hunter art.

So is the 55th card the Prince of Wolves?

Can't wait to see this. I liked the first deck, but wanted a couple of changes - both of which are incorporated in this one. :)

Thanks for listening, Paizo.

There are no plans to add any new actual Harrow cards beyond the established 54. More specifics will have to wait until we've cemented other details.

So more handout and costume prop, less stand alone game.

Ok so they are thicker, like my White Wolf Tarokka deck?

Covet!


I just pre-ordered this today. I have had a character in mind for so long and have held off on making her until I had the deck in hand. I'm so thankful that this new edition will be coming out! :) Way to go Paizo! ^_^

Excellent, thanks Wes! As you know from Bastardhall, Linda and I really enjoy using the Harrow Deck to add atmosphere at the table when applicable. Ours are getting a bit worn from use, actually. Will these be more durable? I may consider grabbing them for that and for the nicer backs.

I had a new campaign upcoming and I thought it would be kind of fun to do a fortune telling sequence at the beginning (Sort of like the old Ultima games, and yes, I realize I am showing my age) and I noticed that the deck was unavailable. Curious, I went on Amazon and found Harrow Decks were going for $500 to $4100!

Thank goodness I stumbled across this! I was afraid this just was not going to be part of Pathfinder anymore. Thank you Paizo!

If the packaging isn't finalized, would you consider something that would fit all the cards in a single stack? I'm not fond of the two-stack package of the original, and if these are oversized cards, I'd rather not go looking for a custom plastic case.

That said, glad to hear about the new set. I loved the face-art of the original, but really disliked the back-art, and would have liked something similar to the back-art for the plot twist cards. Glad to see that the new set will have different back-art.

Either as you said it's packaged like the last one or it's put in the box sideways.


Oh, that's true. I hadn't even thought of that when I looked at the packaging mockup. If it looks like that because it will be in the box as a single stack turned sideways, that would be just fine.

Our printer will tell us what the box needs to look like for the cards we've selected. Sometimes we have choices, sometimes we don't.

(I believe the mockup image uses a standard poker-sized double-deck, which, while it's far from the correct template, is probably the closest thing we have to it at the moment.)

Dark Archive

Very much looking forward to a larger sized card set.

Rereading some of my books... Would the Prince of Wolves be too much for 55th card?

Liberty's Edge

Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Card 55 is Batman. He exists outside the alignment spectrum.

Silver Crusade

Is the product going to keep the original artwork. I do hope so. I saw the original artwork and I hope the artwork stays the same.

Sovereign Court

I'm so happy this is coming soon. Half my original deck was stolen in the middle of the Carrion Crown AP! So frustrating to have such awesome handouts for the optional reward system and then not have them at the end! Definitely buying this in May!

Does this mean we will see an expansion pack at some point with these rare cards?

What are the dimensions of the cards? I plan on getting a set and like to use plastic sleeves on my cards to extend their use.

Where is the suit symbol on the Neutral cards? Not present (except at the bottom) or on the picture?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Cool. I like the new back better than the original back.

My guess is 2.75" x 4.75" (70mm x 121mm), as that is tarot sized.

RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32

How was the order of the suits on the back of the cards determined?

Chr->Str->Wis->Dex->Con->Int doesn't seem to be a particular pattern.

It's certainly too late now, but i would have loved to see

Chr->Dex->Wis->Str->Int->Con, which would have alternated between mental/physical scores, and when presented in a circle like the back of these carts, would have put each mental score across from its physical analog and vice verse.

Any chance of getting this added to one of subscriptions? At least initially? I've been wanting this deck for about a year or 2 now. Never could find the old ones and worried I'll forget about this one. Heck, I'd even be willing to pay a bit extra for throwing it in subscription for companion or campaign setting. Or the very least, a chance to opt in or out.

Either way, can't wait for a chance to pay this! hehe. Keep up the good work, Paizo!

It is part of the cards subscription. Otherwise preorder it, it will ship when your next sub does ( and you'll be charged then too)

The Exchange

Super excited for this! Already pre-ordered. Are we still on track for a mid-May release?

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Yes—it has arrived in the warehouse, and will go out with our May releases.

Also, to answer some of the previous questions, the cards are about 2-3/4" x 4-5/8", and cards that are true neutral have no border symbol highlighted.

Will I be able to use these to play the Harrower prestige class?

I don't see why not. the alignment is based on the placement of the highlighted symbol on the border, (neutral means none are highlighted) and the suit is based on the symbol at the bottom of the card.

it works.

Thank you for pointing that out! I am very much excited to purchase one of these.


Sad to see that the final mockup is still the double-deck box, but as Vic mentioned above, this probably means they didn't have a choice.

Still a buy for me.
