If you fall into this camp - then you will love this book. A few example - the MW backpack that gives you carrying capacity as one Strength higher (a lot cheaper per lb extra capacity as a Bag of Holding - and non magic), the launching crossbow (for splash weapons), the meteor hammer, the grappling arrow as well as many less useful stuff.
20 pages are for Gear - starting with weapons, Armour and shields, Adventuring Gear, Special Substances and items, Tools and Skill Kits, Clothing, Food Drink and Lodging, Mounts, Pets and related Gear, Entertainment Items , Black Market Items as well as an update of Pathfinder Chronicle Campaign Items from D&D3.5 to the Pathfinder rules.
Following this are two pages with Equipment Tricks. Using a feat for a specific item (for example a scabbard or a shield) it allows you some 'tricks' like break ground, hurl shield etc. I'm still undecided on the usefulness (I'm not playing a fighter). It follows two pages on Channel Foci. In principle you use a channel energy to load up an item for 24 hours - like a consecrated weapon . Some nice ideas here - are they worth one channel energy? You have to decide yourself.
My favourite (by now you will guess I play a wizard) are the Alchemical Power Components. You can use items like acid or alchemist fire either as a focus for a small boost of a spell - or as material component for a bigger boost (off course - the item then is used up).Read more ›
It looks and feels more like a magazine excerpt for the Core Rule Book (CRB), and the quality and depth of the information inside is, in my view, disappointing.
The book serves as a supplement to the CRB for (primarily) weapons, armor and adventuring gear (20 pages); Combat (2 pages); Faith (2 pages); Magic (2 pages - no new spells); Persona (2 pages); Social (2 pages).
As with a lot of supplements, the vast majority of the new equipment/ideas inside would never, ever be used. You might find one or two items you'd add, but most of the rest are "Hmm, interesting. Impractical. I can see how you might get a good use out of it in one contrived and rarely occurring situation. How is that not 'exotic'?"
Additionally, some supplementary items are already included in the Pathfinder Crhonicles Campaign Setting, thus those owning that supplement have even less requirement for this one.
Conclusion: An excellent supplement free with the CRB. A good supplement for £2. Something you might pick up for £4. Something you can do without for $6. At it's £8 price, it's a rip off.
If you're fixated on Pathfinder especially their Golarion setting then this is something you will find really useful, otherwise take a gander anyway there's bound to be something of interest whether you play any edition of dungeons & dragons or even 4th edition! (Sorry couldn't resist that!)
Keep an eye out for this you won't be sorry!
Only a few of the magic items and the NPC are unique.
i do like the tables in the covers though, they make for an easy reference of stuff

It was a hard choice to give it only one star star, the product at least looked professional, but man I haven't been this disappointed in a purchase in a long time.
