Pathfinder Skulls & Shackles Character Add-On Deck list





Something I wish I had done with the previous Rise of the Runelords set for the Pathfinder ACG was to keep track of what monsters came in which adventure deck for the purpose of keeping fights in theme.  I'm a big advocate of stacking the monster deck so that it makes sense, after all, you probably wouldn't fight an aquatic monster in the middle of the desert.  Another example would be during the "Attack on Sandpoint" scenario, making sure the monsters are all goblins or goblin-related, and depending on how many players you have, the only way to do so may be to pick up extra adventure decks.  So, that is point of all this, if you find yourself wanting/needing extra cards for your games, then hopefully this resource will be helpful.  I'll also give a few brief thoughts on each deck, what excites me, and what I find interesting.  You can expect to see more of these with the release of each deck...

Anyway, on with the list!

A Few Brief Thoughts...

Character wise, I'm really excited to give Damiel a try, as I'm excited to see a male elf/half-elf and the alchemist class sounds pretty interesting.  I'm also excited to see Lini, and I find it interesting how they've chosen to change her.  The Charm Animal spell is going to be good for Lini, and I'm also excited to see her companion, Droogma (Snow Leopard) included in the allies.  Also it looks like Feiya will get her fox companion that she is pictured with as well.

I think it is clear, given that all the cards like monsters and henchmen come in singles, the extra characters are going to be the main/only reason to pick this one up...



Let me know what everyone thinks, is this type of list useful?  Of course, I skipped the adventure deck #1 as it comes only in the core box set, but I plan to do similar lists for Deck #2 and onwards.  Of course, there will be much more to talk about in the actual adventure decks since they'll contain even more monsters, not to mention you'll be able to get my initial thoughts on the adventures themselves, possible theme ideas, who's going to struggle with them, etc...

Either way, I hope you enjoyed this, until next time...
