Probably not. PDFs of cards by Paizo are very rare, if they exist at all.

Nope—we don't offer PDFs of card products.

Tariffs have nothing to do with the delay here. (They may play a role in future price increases if they continue very long.)

How about a template for community use? :D

Will want to make my own for Adventure monsters until there are official releases :D Card Templates help immensely with that like with the Adventure Card Game

What's the reasoning behind Paizo not offering PDFs of card products? This isn't complaining, I'm legitimately curious.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

To be frank, it's mostly inertia coupled with the fact that we don't get all that many requests for them. (Though the fact we haven't done them may contribute to the lack of requests.)

I would very much like to have the production of PDFs for the cards considered. I was planning to write and request this once I worked out who would be the most appropriate person to write to.

I like to have each scenario and quest fully prepared both digitally and physically in its own packet. At the moment that means copying spells and finding pictures of creatures (if not provided), making item cards, etc. That would be so much easier if I could copy and paste from a PDF of the cards, even if that PDF was only available with physical purchase.

Thank you.


What would the point of the pdf of this product be?

To be able to load it onto your tablet or computer to illustrate the monster.

I'd have many uses. Being able to incorporate the official stat blocks in my electronic notes without taking a crappy cell phone pic would be first and foremost.

I can snag them from the bestiary, but I guarantee that these are going to be much better formatted for individual use.


These all sound like valid reasons

Out of interest: Why not look up the monster on 2e.aonprd.com and copy from there?

No doubt, lots of ways of doing this. I use a digital organizer to create all of my dialogue and notes. I like to have all of the information I can in one spot. I've even been known to almost rewrite entire adventures using the source material.

I can definitely hop out and even link to other sources, but when I am in the middle of a game it breaks immersion for me and it's a personal preference to have all of the information in one spot. For example while writing I will put the note for a monster

Name of Monster
Initiative +##
PF2eB1 pg###

Then later as I prep I will go in and fill in stat blocks or copy and paste from the Bestiary. When I get the cards I'll be using them, but for reference sake I'd still like to put them in my notes if possible.

Way back in the day I'd photo copy and put stat blocks in that way....

Remember, you were curious :D

I'd be doing myself a disservice not to point out that I've released feat cards under Everyman Gaming, but there is still no news of an official feat card product by Paizo.

I wouldn't normally link in another product's page, but I adore and promote to use of all cards in Pathfinder for both ease of play and the creation of new sub-systems. And since I was asked: Cleric and Fighter.

Will there be any more art from the cards forth coming?

Yoshua,

What digital organizer do you use? I use Realm Works for mine and being able to post a picture to my players of the monster/map/what-have-you has been great

If Realm Works were cross-platform, I'd be on it in a microsecond.

Pretty basic. Used to just make word docs, now I use OneNote and love it. I'll make a notebook for each campaign.


Could you show an example of your One Note system?

I can't wait to get my hands on these. I will make running a game easier.


Knock on Wood, they have not been moved to May.


Does this come with GM screen clips, or does anyone know where I can get some?

My local dollar shop sells clothespins in bunches of 40, that should do the trick.

That might work, I just want to go overboard and stack my Advanced GM screen on my GM screen, then put the bestiary cards on top of that, lol.

I just want clips that won't cover everything while holding it on.

I saw someone recommend these and I think they might be right up your alley. They're basically what grocery stores use to clip sale tags on produce bins and they look pretty flexible so you can put them on the top or the sides of a GM screen. I'm going to use them for both these bestiary cards and NPC portraits.


Those little plastic things might be better than clothes pins at not damaging the cards.

It's funny, it never crossed my mind to attach these cards to my GM screen. I primarily want these to easily show my players what the critters look like. And no more flipping back and forth between several Bestiary stat blocks if I want to run a complex encounter; I'll just need a small stack of "reference" cards with the complete stat blocks on them. Neat, easy and practical! :)

Last estimate for weight of the box was 3.5 pounds, can anyone confirm or update us on that?

Nerds: 40 USD for a book is so expensive, what is it for, paper, binding, writing I could do and some art a kid could draw? 10 years ago 40 USD would get me soo many more pages!

The Same Nerds: *spalsh 60 USD on cards with art and rules they already have without batting an eyelash*

LOL! I'm not saying there isn't a market for a product like this; a similar product exists for the World's Oldest RPG. However, the price point for this compared to the Bestiary containing the same information gives me pause on purchasing them myself, especially having already bought the Bestiary. My fear is that this product WILL prove popular... and will become the preferred method of producing all future Bestiary. After all, it is far cheaper to produce cards then it is a hardcover book. I seem to recall a developer once commenting about the PACG that the box cost more to print and create than the cards it contained.

While I'd never hope for the failure of a product line, I can hope that producing Bestiary cards doesn't supplant Bestiary hardcovers.

I suppose this product isn't even close to compete with a hardcover filled with those same rules and additional ones, all the lore and so much more. The cards aren't a must, you don't need them to play the game, unlike the bestiary. You can't even fully use them without the bestiary - if I'm not mistaken - as there're some abilities that won't be getting a description on the cards, like universal abilities or additional abilities from sidebars.

It's needless to I surely appreciated the idea of Battle Cards and hope to see the line becoming popular and profitable, so that it can be expanded into other areas.

Imagine a similar product for the deities of the setting, depicting their avatar in one side and their "stats" in the other (by stats I mean their worshiper friendly information). Yet a product like that wouldn't work out without books like Gods and Magic, as there's all the lore and additional rules that wouldn't fit in one card per god...

The cards can't survive without the books. That's a needles fear...

Or is it not? 'O'

They could produce smaller books without stats and art, only with lore and additional rules, and the cards would become a must have........

Yet, that's never happening. =D

Why would Paizo sell a product that makes another one obsolete?
Far better to sell both.

Cards are also not as easy to reprint, hence why we haven’t seen many reprints of past decks, if any at all. Much better to do a regular run of new cards than a smaller reprint run.

Is there a way to start my subscription with this product but not the Adventure Gear Deck?

Maybe I should just buy this on its own and start the subscription with the Advanced GM Screen.

If you go to the subscription page, you should be able to select this product to start your subscription (at least that is what it is showing for me).
