Yeah, I hate this sort of thing too and won't be able to make it, but here you go before you find out about this too late on eBay:

"Established in 2007, Free RPG Day works with participating hobby game retailers and RPG publishers to bring new and exclusive RPG quickstart rules and adventure modules into the hands of gamers. Consumers WORLDWIDE will be able to grab brand new material for a variety of RPGs --- no overstock, retail-priced or dead product here. The goal of Free RPG Day is to inspire gamers to play a new RPG, which will in turn, create sales through local game stores. Use the retailer locator to find a participating store near you!"

Retailer locator: http://www.freerpgday.com/

The promo cards come in 4-packs, and will be the most plentiful in the FreeRPG retail boxes. Unless the boardgamers go after them. whistle

Dang. There's one place in Phoenix participating, but it's way on the other side of the city. Not sure if the drive is worth it, but I do want these...

I know right. It's a good long way from us. Paizo said you'll get the promo with your subscription order of Skulls and Shackles, though.

At least they're in your city. There's not one retailer within 100 miles of me that is participating.

Just want to point out that I'm pretty sure Vic said you'll get these promo cards with your shipment if you subscribe to the card game through Paizo's website.

It's very unfortunate that some retailer somewhere decided to break street date by putting these out there before Saturday AND charge money for it despite the fact that it's supposed to be free. That person should be ashamed of themselves.

I love Ranzak and I must have him.

Who am I kidding? I would never leave my precious Druid for him. So tempting, though...

Those most likely are 4 different cards :

1 Token card
1 + 2 1 card on ablilites

The same as for any other character in the game.

Stupid me, I somehow thought that we have 2 cards for the two roles. I guess I made this mistake because I use some character sheets from BGG for my characters.

I'm actually curious what the fourth card is... every other character so far has a token card, a character statistics card, and a role card that is two-sided. That fourth card could be a promo boon card. :-D

Okay. so he gets one starting Ally in his deck. Are there any ally birds in the base game? Mine is still in transit, two days away. But, never even having played, I am obsessed with getting that Goblin. And I want him to have a bird in his deck, if at all possible.

So, help me out, I haven't played yet. If this is accurate, he gets 1 each Ally, Spell, and Armor; and four each of Weapon, Blessing, and Item. What are some good choices for me on this guy? I know I have to wait and get the leftovers after my friends and family get first dibs, but if I know what I am looking for, it will help a lot.

I somehow missed the fact that Raznak was a character and not just a promo monster. Now maybe i have to find him this saturday.

At least 2 Crows in the base Ally deck (one might be from the Character Add-On pack or not).

Anybody want to try that 11 hand size ? Better not mess up a combat roll, not a whole lot left to draw from.

I'm nervous enough about that 7, there is NO WAY I would ever check a single one of those feats. Unless, do you ever get to the point where you have to increase hand size?

There will be a Parrot ally in the S&S set.

Could you show us the other side of the cards please ?

So are the promo cards shuffled into any decks? Haven't played the card game yet.

It depends on the card in question.

In the case of Ranzak, his cards won't be shuffled ever into a deck, since he is a character. At the beggining of the game all player choose a character and takes it's cards + create a starting deck.

For cards which are boons (Horsechopper +1, Poog of Zarongel) or banes (Grindylow) you should shuffle them into their respective decks, based on card type. (Weapon, Ally and Monster in my example) You encounter those during games randomly.

Yes, the promo cards are normally shuffled into the main decks for their card type, so they can randomly be included in location decks.
