Fine, Functional, Boooooring

2/5

Frankly, the cards are fine, and thats it, they are little better then a page with a glossary on it. The lack of goblin art was a massive lunch box letdown.


Disappointed covers it

3/5

The deck contains 108 cards, one for instructions, one for the OGL, and 6 'tracker' cards for conditional values or durations.

Unlike the first edition condition cards, these are double-sided with the same condition on both sides, which would be a reason for the grown deck size.

Not having 4 copies of each condition card makes only limited sense to me, as does including conditions that only the GM would usually use, like undetected.

The rules texts on the cards is useful, the presentation rather neutral.


Got Cards early... a little disappointed

3/5

I love my 1st edition condition cards. The cute goblins on them... the fact that they are usefully two-sided with related conditions on the back of most cards made them both adorable and great to have. These ones... not so much.

No artwork. Blocky design. Strange numbers of different conditions. Some have 4 copies and others only have 1 of the condition. I understand there are a whole lot of new stuff happening, but it was a huge let down from the 1st edition cards.

I will update my post to address how useful they are once I get my Core book and get a chance to play a few times.

Sickened, bleeding & fascinated goblins?

These cards are cool for 1st edition & Starfinder, but thete are less cards in there than here.
I wonder if there are more conditions or just more of each one in this set?

There are more conditions in general (I think), but I know that several key conditions get multiple cards per deck, so more than one player can use them at the same time.

Is this going to be part of the Accessories subscription?


I love the condition cards so much. Can't wait for second edition EVERYTHING!!

Shadow Lodge

Did they go the way of 1st edition with different colors for different conditions so they're easy to sort, or the starfinder way where everything is the same and hard to tell apart?

I am so happy to see these being available right from launch, they were a great asset to have at the table in first edition.

Is there any chance of item cards returning? My group loves them.


Just in case the answer isn't "No", has there been any discussion of having these also be available as an App? Bonus points if it could interface with an app version of the Combat Tracker, but I understand that it's difficult / a long way off.

Just thinking of ways to interface with my players in their preferred medium - thanks!


Card size, I'm get used to use card sleeves. I'd love to know card size in order to have ready their sleeves.
Thank you!

Seems like standard card game size.

About the deck: I'm a little disappointed. ... Actually, it's not just a little.

Let me explain: the cards and the text on them is nice, and the pack being 108 cards is okay for the price.

But:

Why? Why did you print the same condition on both the front and back of the same card?
I know that conditions now worsen by the value attached to them, not by going from one to the next worse, but that makes half the space available not useable. That was the good thing about the first edition condition cards.

That brings me to the second point: 2 cards for blinded? 1 card for controlled? At least frightened and grabbed got 4 cards each.

Finally: do we need cards for those GM-only conditions like undetected? At least there are only 2 cards of those.


Is there like a sample somewhere of how these look?

I'll be honest... the way the PF1 condition cards have different conditions front/back is the one thing I don't like about them. It's irritating when looking for a card in a deck to search top to bottom, fail to find the card, flip the deck over, and start the search again. If the cards had been designed like this deck, I could put the cards in the deck in alphabetical order and find the card I want fast.

I bought multiple decks (for PF1) to get the quantity I want.

I won't consider buying these until:

1} There's a clear breakdown of what's in the deck and,
2} There's a decent preview of what the cards look like.

That would let me know if I actually want the deck, and how many I might need. Given we're only very lightly dabbling in PF2, I won't be spending a bunch up-front on faith.

Quote:

Sort of yes. There's a utility there. At least with PF1, some of the time we players give the DM a condition card for something we've inflicted upon an NPC/monster. Even if we've got the condition memorized, it's a useful reminder to the DM that one or more creatures they're running have that condition. We also use Alea tools magnetic coloured bases under minis, but more aids tend to make things flow faster. But my point is that DM-only conditions do have a place at some tables.

I knew I had seen a close-up of some of the Condition Cards on Twitter.

Surprised Paizo doesn't have samples up yet, but I guess that got pushed until after GenCon.

EDIT: On reflection, not surprised. It would have been before release date, so it would have counted as spoilers.

Thanks! And oh, I actually like those designs a lot better than the cards for PF1. I mean, I like goblins as much as any other fellow, but the cards seemed kind of too childish and colorful and could provoke some dissonance with the game themes.

Hi Anguish

I can't help much with the 2nd (although for what it's worth, I like the look - there's no clutter by way of amusing Goblin pictures, just clearly readable font and large spaces to write on for those conditions with varying degrees). If you follow the link Joana posted two posts above this one, you can kind of see the white box on the Dying card peeking out from the other two. I'm afraid posting pictures on the internet is beyond me at the moment. :o

In terms of the card list, there's:

1 OGL Card

6 Condition Value/Duration Tracker Cards - these have rows numbered 1 through 10 on one side and numbered 1 round through 10 rounds on the other. The idea is you lie whichever condition you're affected by over this one to indicate the duration/severity.

1 Instruction Card - outlining how to use the Condition Value cards with an easy to understand picture and a suggestion that if you don't want to do that and would prefer to write on them you should get a clear sleeve. :)

I've spoilered the important cards. I also put an asterisk by those with a box to write the severity/duration on, though I realised halfway through that was a little unnecessary. Nonetheless - the asterisked cards have a white box or bar in the bottom half.

Number of each Condition Card:
2 Blinded Cards
2 Broken Cards
3 Clumsy* Cards
2 Concealed Cards
2 Confused Cards
1 Controlled Card
4 Dazzled Cards
2 Deafened Cards
3 Doomed* Cards
4 Drained* Cards
4 Dying* Cards
1 Encumbered Card
3 Enfeebled* Cards
2 Fascinated Cards
2 Fatigued Cards
2 Flat-footed Cards
2 Fleeing Cards
4 Frightened* Cards
4 Grabbed Cards
4 Hidden Cards
2 Immobilzed Cards
4 Invisible Cards
4 Paralyzed Cards
4 Persistent Damage* Cards
2 Petrified Cards
4 Prone Cards
3 Quickened* Cards
2 Restrained Cards
4 Sickened* Cards
4 Slowed* Cards
4 Stunned* Cards
2 Stupefied* Cards
4 Unconscious Cards
2 Undetected Cards
4 Wounded* Cards

They get a solid thumbs up from me (way to go Logan!) I bought multiples for Pathfinder and Starfinder but I think one pack will be fine for PF2.

Are these on backorder or something? Ordered them two weeks ago, showing as pending. That a known problem with this site?

The last 2 weeks coincide with Paizo's monthly new-release shipments. They're shipping things out the door as fast as they can right now, but they're already running a little late. (They were supposed to finish shipping subscriptions and pre-orders today, but they say it might take until Friday to finish.)

Good news is, they ought to be getting your shipment out the door too by the end of the week. But in the future, if you can schedule your order when they're not shipping subscriptions, it will probably leave the warehouse more quickly.


Pathfinder Maps Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Ah. I thought it was going to ship with the new releases, which it ultimately did not do (I have received those).

I'll just trust they'll get to it when they can, then. Thankee.

Oh, gotcha. Then, for future reference, if you place an order during the subscription-shipping window and you want it shipped with your subscription, you can contact Customer Service to have it combined with that order.

(Usually, you can get something to ship with your subscriptions just by sidecarting it, but if they've already run the authorizations, the system doesn't always add it to the one about to ship out but holds it for the next month.)

It's also possible, particularly with non-book accessories (non-books don't count for the cheapest shipping options by USPS sometimes), that it works out cheaper to break your subscription into separate packages, so you might get a couple of packages shipping at different times even if your order is correctly combined with your subscription order.

Hope you get your cards soon! My subscription just shipped last night.

The solution to that problem was easy. I sorted in two cards with the front and two cards with the back in alphabetical order. Needing more than 2 cards of one condition can happen, but then two players can just share one card for reference.
