Short Pathfinder Reviews – Merchandise, Smugglers and Ioun Stones

16 July, 2012

Three short reviews of various Pathfinder products:

Markets and Merchandise (Pathfinder Edition) is a collection of useful information on market, what you can buy at them, and wide varieties of things to buy.  The Pathfinder conversion (this was originally written for a different system) is rough on a few mechanical things in the weapons, armor and alchemical sections sections.  Even with those flaws it covers a considerable amount of useful territory such as currencies, a wealth of interesting trade items, prices for services from the profane to the sacred.  I hope Avalon Games revises the mechanical sections noted above so that I can wholeheartedly recommend this product.

Evocative City Sites: Eiffelmacher Estates is a ruined estate, fully mapped out and printable as battle maps, used as a base of operations for a band of smugglers and worse (the Spotty Bottle Gang, two of whose leaders are detailed) that use their knowledge of the estate and its haunts (seven of which are provided) to protect themselves and their base of operations.  Several scenario hooks are provided and the estate map can be used for a variety of purposes.  Overall, quite a useful package.

#30 Ioun Stones contains what it says on the tin, 30 new ioun stones ranging from the minor but useful to the quite powerful indeed, including a legacy ioun stone that can grow in power as its owner does.  If you like ioun stones, you will like this product, if not . . . not.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of these products for free from the publisher for the purpose of these reviews.
