The Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords - Character Add-On Deck is published by Paizo Publishing. It adds 4 new classes to the base game- barbarian, druid, monk and paladin. It also makes it possible to play the base game with 5 or 6 players. There are lots of extra monsters, spells, blessings, allies and items included.
For how to play, check out the base game review here.


COMPONENTS
This expansion adds 110 cards to the base set. Just like the base game, the artwork is phenomenal. The theme flows through these cards just like it does in the base set. Again, these look great.

RULEBOOK
There is no rulebook included with this expansion. All rules needed to play are provided in the base game.

GAMEPLAY
Just like in the base game, these characters are a lot of fun to play. I'm very fond of playing the druid. The extra cards provide lots of new things for your characters to explore and many new monsters to fight. I very much enjoy this addition.

OVERALL
The Character Add-On Deck is a definite necessity if you ask me. There's no reason why you shouldn't purchase this along with the base game. Whether you plan on playing alone or with a group of 5 friends, it's worth having. As a matter of fact, it's the only way to play more than 4 players in the game. This is a definite MUST BUY addition. I highly recommend it along with the base set.

(I know this is an old post but I wanted to ask)

I want to buy base set and I was thinking of buy this addon at the same time (some characters seem soo cool). The thing is that we are going to play it just 2 ppl (probably with two characters each one) so I don't need the extra cards for 5-6 players.
You said that the addon adds many new monsters and stuff and comparing the two cards lits this addon just add 1 monster and 1 barrier that are not in the base game, and some weapons and items that I asume are design for the new characters.. am I right?
I don't know what to do.. characters are cool but if all the rest of the cards are copies from the base game I dont know if it worth it :C

Image with the addon card list and in yellow the ones that are not in the base game http://i61.tinypic.com/dc37fm.png

Thanks for your opinion!

For what it's worth - I think the new characters are great, plus it gives you the option of playing a few solo sessions with a new character and still leaving the 4 characters you are playing in your main campaign constructed.

I find the game a lot of fun solo with one or two characters - I also play a 4-player game with friends - so have enough cards with this expansion for both to be running at once.
