If you're a GM looking to expand your resources on a budget, then this is the starter deck of items for you! Just like it says on the box, this deck is filled with the "Essentials" that you need to fill out your adventure. I just finished plotting out the item drops of the entire Godsmouth Heresy module - using only the cards from this deck plus one charm for the rune.
I now have all the card decks from the Game Mastery series aside from the booster pack deck. This one is a collection from three different decks. The best cards from each set is the pitch and they are very good ones.
I think now that I have all the sets that the art work needs to be improved over all for all the sets but they are a good addition to the game in general. Any idea which ones yet? I'd love to see a list, but because I already have a lot of these, the most useful list would be one that says which ones they were in the old sets.
But something that said, "Item Pack One cards being reprinted: 01, 03, 04, etc. BTW, Item Pack One was a 52 card set and Hero's Hoard was , but if I recall correctly, there was a 30ish card overlap, leaving about about unique cards. OK, if anyone with certain powers that be are actually reading these boards, I have a better suggestion for what should be in this, not so much item pack one and Hero's Hoard but all the cards from Hero's Hoard and Relics of War combined!
Item pack One was already put out as a boxed set complete. But Hero's Hoard and Relics of War were not. I don't care about shiny foil cards I want every single card from the entire set available as one stinkin' set I can shove in the binder I already bought to keep everything straight with the same kinds of display pages other folks use for baseball cards.
Can you do that for us please? Let me amend my earlier request, at cards please just reprint Hero's Hoard as a complete set and use the same numbers so I can combine this deck with the cards I already have of Hero's Hoard in my binder and have one complete set with a lot of extra cards for some items. I rather liked the chainmail that was reprinted from Item Pack 1 in Hero's Hoard.
Heck I used the card as a reference for a con badge picture at a convention! If I can get the scanner working I'll make sure I scan the badge for those that want to see it. You know, its as if these Paizo guys know that I've not been spending money on monthly releases of 3.
Since the date was pushed back a whole month, and chance at a list of the cards to whet our whistles? I'd say i'm down for this, even though I already have Item Pack 1. I really want to own Hero's Hoard and Relics of War, even if it isn't a complete set.
Thanks a lot for the list and the references to the previous sets. Looks like a good spread. Only 6 5? I almost guess that it is a typo and should be HH94 Boots because that one doesn't show up in both sets. Otherwise, everything from Hero's Hoard is stuff you can't get in Item Pack 1.
A nice selection of weapons, armor, etc. Almost all of the wondrous items from both sets are included. And if you're looking for those last few you can't gt in Essentials Although I have most, if not all, of these cards already; I am certain to buy this set when it releases. I love the Item Card Decks. As I was furthering my knowledge of Alpha3, I noticed that the list of Animal Companions had a total of 55 creatures, which is one more than the standard 54 card decks; but includes some Very unusual choices.
Perhaps a double set including "Improved Familiars"; winged cat, undead dire rat I love the hell out of this idea. DM Jeff Jun 3, , am You know, my group loves these Oh, woe is me. Any word on the release date for these?
I pre-ordered them and they're holding up the rest of my order :. Check our Product Schedule! Cool, I hadn't seen that before.
I'm a little miffed because this was apparently shipped ahead of Skeletons of Scarwall and while the cards have yet arrive, I got the new pathfinder today. We'll see when the golem shirt ships and when I get it. I want to second that request.

Spoiler: In case it needed to be said, I'm joking. I was going through the my item decks to set up treasure for the coming session, and I realized that Paizo left a horrible ommision Chainmail Bikinis are Essential Equipment! It has been so since Estaban Maroto established the trope in the early s! Just to make sure that this doesn't fade into obscurity, here are some more thoughts on Chainmail Bikinis!
They are an essential piece of Adventuring Equipment. They need to be included in an item pack in the near future! Any progress yet on getting me my Chainmail Bikini item card? I'm not taking a pro or con stand on chain mail bikinis, but it might be fun to have one or two cards in each pack determined by community vote. Folks could nominate odd items and the top vote-getter would make it into the pack. P assume these cards are used or magic items.
Question, are these cards reusable I. Can you erase and rewrite on them? The back has a large section of uncoated paper so you can write on it; if you'd like to erase it, I'd suggest writing lightly with a soft pencil.
Plinke Dec 20, , am So You can just use a pencil and eraser on it? Flamehawke Mar 29, , am I have to state my mother got me two different packs of these GameMastery cards. This was one of them. I love them. I have to state on the chainmail bikini that item might tempt my mother into finding her old stats for the chainmail bikini she actually had a character wear.

Some people have commented that they like the idea of props, but lack the time to find or make them. That got me thinking; Paizo offers a line of item cards that each depicts in full color an item either mundane or magical which could be used as a sort of meta prop. Along with magic items, they offer two sets of mundane gear. The cards 54 to a pack have artwork by some the industries best artists, and the back of each card is left blank so the DM or player can write notes about the item, along with a detailed description of the item.
