Core Set Cards


Pathfinder Adventure Card Game General Discussion


We just finished playing Wrath of the Righteous and I purchased the core set along with Curse of the Crimson Throne. We play with 4-5 players but the new core set says 4 players. Are there new decks (class) to add on with the new prints or am I supposed to use the older card decks I have acquired? I like the new print and I would like to buy new addon decks but the expansions listed in the store do not specify if they are the new print for the core set or the older prints. Please advise.


Only the Core Set and Curse of the Crimson Throne have the new look and rules. Everything else uses the original look and rules.

There are conversion guidelines and such around so you can use the old cards with the Core Set cards and ruleset.

With Core+Curse you should be able to go to 6 players and use the normal rules of using cards with the current Adventure's Deck/Level number or lower when building Locations. (You only need to use all the cards with the Core Set alone because you might run out of cards when building Locations otherwise.)

Everything Parody is accurate, and I'll note that you can play through the Core set's adventure (The Dragon's Demand) with up to 6 players if you mix in the Curse of the Crimson Throne expansion cards alongside the Core set cards.

If you decide to make use of the older cards, there are conversion details towards the back of the Core rulebook and additional details at https://paizo.com/pacg/conversion.

While no more new products are being produced for the Core set, there are a number of Pathfinder Adventure Card Society scenarios that were created for Core and Curse to add additional story content / replayability to those sets. You can find them on the webstore here in PDF form.

Here is where you'll find the PDF Adventure Paths written for Society play. Year 6 (Year of Rotting Ruin) is a full length AP using the Core and Curse sets, but with an entirely new story. For the AP, you'd buy the PDFs labeled #6-1 through #6-6. There will be images of some new cards included in the AP.

A Night at Bloodthorne Manor, also listed on this page, is a fun standalone 4-scenario adventure playable at any level 1-4. I wouldn't recommend the 2019 Open or #6-99 at this time. (They aren't part of the AP.)

Year 7 (Year of Reborn Strife) is a level 1-3 AP (#7-1 through #7-3).

Season 1 (Season of the Righteous is a full AP for the Wrath of the Righteous base set if you want to revisit that set with a new AP!


Additionally, if you would love some class / character deck to add into the Core set (for example, Occult Adventures or Ultimate Intrique or whatever you desire), I have converted every single card in those "older" decks as well as the original four adventure paths AND the Seasons 0-5 into Core wording. I have overlay texts that can be printed out on an adhesive tape and thus glued to the original cards.
Currently, my collection covers Skull & Shackles, Wrath of the Righteous, Hell's Vengeance decks (for WotR), Pathfinder Tales and Gunslinger (for S&S) - all with converted texts and sometimes checks. My friend has Mummy's Mask (converted). The non-converted decks (i.e. without the text pasted over the original cards) I have are Occult Adventures and all Ultimate decks save the Ultimate Combat - I do not intend to acquire more :)
If you wish some of those character decks available converted into Core terminology, I can help you with that ;) - but I can't make the old cards into the new layout, obviously.
