Format: Paperback
Paizo is well known for all the fluff and trying to add roleplay into the Pathfinder game at every opportunity. But face it - fluff is nice to have - but how often are you rather looking for the bit extra that helps your character to be this tiny little bit better equipped or just getting an edge.

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).

This isn't a lot of book for the nearly-£8 price tag - especially as the actually *new* content is, of course, even less.

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.

A good buy this product is only second to the Kingdoms of Kalamar tools & gear supplement they released back during the 3.0 era.
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!

Just about every item in this book is covered elsewhere.
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

HASH(0x98bbc348) out of 5 stars Don't buy this 10 Sept. 2010
By Pathfinder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Most of the content is found either in the free Beta Version or in the new Advanced Players Guide. This is a pamphlet sized soft cover and is way overpriced for what you get. I read the reviews but got suckered in on the four and five star reviews. Don't make the same mistake I did by buying this product. Honestly it should be priced at about $2.99 but even then, there is a reason they don't want to give you a preview of whats inside.

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.

HASH(0x97a55eac) out of 5 stars not worth it. 11 Sept. 2010
By winston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well I was expecting more. This product is something that would be a freebie at a convention. It has some intersting things in it, but, I found it a dissapointment. Not remotely necessary. 30 page of "meh", a glorifed pamphlet.

HASH(0x97a55e7c) out of 5 stars More Substance Required 21 Aug. 2010
By Todd's Dungeon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was thinking there would be wonderful Weapons and Armour additions in a booklet entitled "Adventurer's Armoury". There's plenty of weapons, bugger all armour, plenty of equipment descriptions, some additional feats and some alchemical gear. One whinge - seriously, I don't want a companion booklet to waste space on describing a blanket or a coffin. Users should also be careful about some of the effects etc - some don't make sense or are poorly thought out. Oh yes - should you know the authors, please tell them I want sections for sub-zero equipment, desert gear, useful gear for planar travel, caving gear etc etc in their next edition!!

HASH(0x97d20bac) out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY! This book is so shallow its like an empty folder! 6 Sept. 2010
By L. Beauchamp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the worst Gear books ever seen in the rpg game book world. Almost every Rpg tries to publish an accessory of Gear and Weapons and most come with handy charts to random generate gear, Like the Pathfinder Dungeon Master guide does (BTW THAT BOOK IS A MUST HAVE). But this book is a true disappointment almost as bad as the Pathfinder Npc guide book, which is even thinner believe it or not! Should be pulled and content should be added to Core book for free. Its very limited and a waste of money. I was frustrated and embarrassed I had wasted money when I got this book.

By Guardian56 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This product is a waste of money the info is in the handbook. I can't believe they sell this product. I am guessing this was printed before the handbook came out and the BETA test version was still being worked on. Please read the reviews don't waste your money like I did.
