Looks Like the Pawns Are Out of the Bag

The box?  Well, however you mix that metaphor, ICv2 has come out with the news that Paizo will be releasing the entire first bestiary as a set of over 250 monsters on over 300 pawns.*  Sweet!  I'm happy to hear it, and the price doesn't sound bad.  Even though I prefer minis, I will probably pick this up just because of those monsters that will likely never get made into minis, or the super rare ones that are a pain.

It was a no-brainer, of course, but I'm really surprised Paizo allowed someone else to announce it first.  Usually, this is the kind of thing you hear first on the Paizo blog.

EDIT: The product page is now up at the Paizo website.

*Per the product page.


  1. We meant to have this on our site earlier this week, but we've been hit particularly hard by illnesses. So icv2 beat us to the punch, unfortunately. The product page should be up by the end of the day Friday.

    The product will have more than 300 pawns, though. Not sure where icv2 got the 250 number...

    Seriously, though, thanks for stopping by. I'm sorry to hear that Paizo's crew is beset by illness. Keep those boys and girls healthy, lest your legions of fans go all nutso. (Need I even ask if this is all somehow Cosmo's fault?)

    I will edit the post to reflect the more accurate number, and I'll add the product page. I'm really looking forward to hearing about how multiples will work out.

  3. it is always Cosmo's fault.

  4. many days were there between the Paizo Holiday party and the outbreak of this plague?
