Best of all, this set contains multiples of most pawns, so your heroes will always be able to face off against a horde of space goblins and security robots or blast their way through a fleet of warships!

The Starfinder Core Rulebook Pawn Collection includes pawns suitable for representing player characters, allies and enemies, starships, mechanic drones, aliens, and more!

    Useful, but with Limitations

    ***( )( )

    The Core Rulebook Pawn Collection was the first set of pawns released for Starfinder. If you're new to the pawns concept, they're thick flat double-sided cardboard tokens that slot into plastic bases that are sized appropriately for the size of the creature in tactical combat on a 5-inch grid. This collection relies on images from the Core Rulebook and includes about 100 different creature pawns and 15 different starship pawns. Multiples of most pawns are included--usually 2 of each, though some creatures only get 1 and one (space goblins) get 4. Starships tend to come in groups of 3 or 4. I've used the set for about a year now, and I'm happy with the coverage of options it provides for PCs and NPCs of the core races; there's eight different Lashuntas, for example, and sixteen different humans. Beyond the core races, however, coverage drops significantly: there's only one type of elf, one type of dwarf, and a few others like a single haan, sarcesian, etc. Some other drawbacks:

    * The set does not come in a box; once you punch out the pawns, you'll have to come up with a custom storage solution to keep them organized.

    * The set does not include bases; you'll need to purchase those separately or use the ones included with another set.

    * Inexplicably (and unlike the Pathfinder pawn sets), there is no set indicator symbol. This means that once you start bringing in Starfinder pawns from other sets, separating what belongs to any given set can get very time-consuming.

    The drawbacks aren't so major that I regret buying the set; I use it more than any other, as it's the default product I put out when players need to choose tokens for their characters. But I would suggest going in with your eyes open about the pros and cons here.


    Space Pawns!

    *****

    I like them: I use them in a lot of my games (though I have other minis)
    Having the pregens is great.
    For me they deliver what I want: nice colorful images of Starfinder characters and enemies, that I can easily carry around with me.


    Starfinder, Pathfinder, Star Wars, Shadowrun. Pawns bring high quality fun!

    *****


    Lashuntas get their antennas cruelly cut off by bad picture scaling

    **( )( )( )

    At first I thought, hey, this is a really useful pawn set. A lot of pawns for each race, which is nice with oddball new races for which there isn't a lot of art out there to make your own pawns with.

    But what really annoys me is that the pictures are often slightly too big for the pawns they're printed on so that bits get snipped off at the edges. Like the lashuntas antennas. Or like the guns and other cool weapons people are holding (lots of sawed-off laser rifles).

    This is bad. It could have been prevented by shrinking the picture 5% so it would fit on the pawn. And it's something Paizo has been doing wrong for years.

    ---

    ADDENDUM

    A big, BIG PROBLEM with this set though is that the name of the pawn set isn't printed on the pawns, nor do they have numbers. That sounds trivial but it isn't. I store my pawns in the original cardboard in their boxes - easiest way to keep them sorted. If I need a monster from Bestiary 17 starting with Q, I pop open box 17 and flip cardboard until I come to monsters starting with a Q. After I'm done playing, I have a hand of pawns from five boxes, but each pawn has a box name printed on it so I now where to put it back. It's very easy and efficient.

    Bestiary boxes, as well as Pathfinder AP pawn collections, the Villain Codex, NPC Codes all have this handy system. But the Starfinder sets don't. Neither Alien Archive, nor Pact Worlds, nor Core Rulebook. So if I've used pawns from all three in an adventure (which is really not that unlikely) I have to do a lot of looking up to see where to put them back. And Alien Archive 2 is going to hit the shelves in a couple of months. This problem could get bigger and bigger.

    PLEASE PAIZO PUT THE NAME OF THE PAWN SET ON THE PAWNS. Also please the number in that set. You've done this for years and it's really useful. Why did you stop?


    No numbers :(

    **( )( )( )

    As with the Heroes and Villains set, it's a problem that the pawns have neither numbers, nor a small thing indicating which set they are from. Since this is the first Starfinder set, we could get away without the latter, but for all the same reasons that we gave in the discussion of the Heroes and Villains set, many of us really want to have numbered pawns.

    The pawns themselves look good, and will be very useful in running fledgling Starfinder games. However, especially as more pawn sets come up, the lack of numbers is going to be an issue. For that reason, I've lowered the number of stars in my review.

    While starship pawns aren't all the same physical size, they do all go on a standard Medium base (since even the largest ones fit within one hex).

    having got the pawn set pdf; most of the spaceships are the same size as medium pawns, some are the size of large pawns. All of them are printed ladscape style, so the base will attach to the side of the pawn if they were creature pawns

    This looks like a pretty awesome set!

    One thing I wanted to check on as we're looking through it--just about all of our pawns (the ones that are on page 10 of the PDF--the Lashunta sheet) are misprinted--the print was crooked and we lost most of the names and big chunks of the images. This happen to anyone else?

    Your post encouraged me to double-check my products looking for misprints. Fortunately for me, mine all seem to be printed correctly. In particular, none of my pawns seem misaligned.

    It looks like you get to ask for a replacement.

    Oh, that's good to hear. Thanks for checking! Hope I am in the minority. :)


    Hello everyone. I am new to all this and I am confused about there being a PDF version of this product available for purchase. Simply put, why is there a PDF version of this? Will I be able to print out the pawns if I wanted too, or can they be used as tokens on Roll20? Thank you for the replies in advance. Really would like to know if I can use them as tokens on Roll20.

    I'm wondering, do you know how difficult it will be to use the pawn's from the PDF in Roll20.net? Do you know of a tutorial video or some guide that can be helpful?

    I use Roll20 and will be converting these over myself. There is a tutorial on Roll20 I believe about how to upload tokens and what not. Generally your just going to make individual files out of each one and upload them as jpgs.

    while not a tutorial per-say this might help

    Curious, will this set cover the SfS adventure: Into the Unknown? I tried matching up a couple of the encounters but I'm not exactly sure on the starships & such.

    Example:
    Starfinder Society Drake

    I'm not seeing this in the listing. I'm wondering if it's listed under a different name.

    thanks!

    Spoiler:

    That's a negative. There is no pawn for the Drake, nor for the skreebara. You'll also want to dig up half a dozen skeletons from your Pathfinder Pawns. In fact, none of the pawns are really an exact match for Into the Unknown -- that's probably too much coordination to hope for -- though most of the other stuff has decent enough stand-ins.


    Does anyone have any advice on suitable ways to print these for use?

    how big are the pawns of the characters are they close to 28mm cos im setting up a game and wondering if ill need to change up my terrain


    Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

    I really like the pawn set.

    It's probably my favorite pawn set.


    Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

    I didn't get the flip mats because my brother got me a Chessex megamat a couple years ago I've been waiting to use the hex side for something ever since.


    Pathfinder Companion, Maps Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

    I would have skipped the initial flip mats as well if I didn't have to buy them to get Charter Superscriber status. My GM already has that same megamat.

    I have pathfinder advantage through my AP sub, and while it would've been nice to a Charter subscriber, there's no way I can afford being a superscriber. :-)

    The medium character pawns are 2,8 cm broad and 4,8 cm high.

    That´s a little to broad for a normal square...

    That's not a new thing—having the pawns a bit wider than the bases means we can make the art about 10% bigger than if we squeezed it into an inch-wide space. Yet, because they're essentially two-dimensional, that doesn't prevent you from putting them in adjacent squares.

    The Flip-Mat scaling issue is an actual error. We'll be talking about it in an upcoming Paizo blog, so I'm not going to say more about it yet. We've also heard your feedback on the darkness of the grid lines, and we'll be lightening those with future releases.

    As for the ship pawns, they are as intended. I would rather have more visually impactful pawns than restrict the art to an inch just so you can use them against the wall of a 3D hangar (because using them in a 2D hangar isn't a problem).

    As for your binding issues, I can guarantee you that the entire print run is not defective. I would say that reports of binding issues are slightly on the high side of normal, and we have already sent samples to our printer for their examination... but I also know that some people are reporting binding issues because they don't realize that the fabric strip is not supposed to be glued to the spine with the style of binding we use. (Even though this has been the case with every hardcover we have printed since the second printing of the Pathfinder Core Rulebook, Starfinder has brought in a number of people who have never purchased our hardcovers before, or who haven't purchased one since the first printing of Pathfinder, where the fabric strip *was* glued to the spine.)

    If you do have a binding issue, though, there's no reason you should be stuck with it. If you bought it from us, contact us about replacing it. If you bought it from a retailer, start at your retailer, because our industry has an established process for dealing with these things. If you don't get satisfaction from your retailer, let us know.

    Quick question about the PDF version of the Starfinder Core Pawns. Is there any way to get rid of the red outlines on the pawns?

    When I'm using Nitro Reader 5 (on Windows 10), I can copy an image and paste it to a paint program, and the red outline is not copied with the rest of the image. So I imagine it's possible.

    I know that they technically arn't part of the core rulebook, but I really wish that the Drake and Pegasus starships had pawns in this set.

    They will likely be the most flown ships for a while.

    We used these in our game on Sunday. Great art, added a lot of flavor to the board.
