I've been using the online posted rules to play Pathfinder RPG for about a year now (d20pfsrd.com) and I must say, having the book while playing instead of a laptop brings a much better feel to my games. While the vast content of the website is unmatched by any of the books, I think it's best to keep online stuff to out of game preparation and use the core book (and perhaps bestiaries as well) during table top play. Plus, buying the book instead of going to the free site is the best way to show appreciation for the excellent work that Paizo does.

I will go so far to say that Lords of Waterdeep is the most enjoyable Eurostyle game that I have played in a very very long time. Lords of Waterdeep is a Eurostyle game (worker placement specifically) for people who aren't fans of Euros in that it is a very quick to teach and play, has actual player interaction elements (the Intrigue cards), and has elements of luck in the quests drawn, the intrigue cards drawn, and the building tiles that show up throughout the game. Heavy spreadsheet non interaction, non random element fans need not apply. The core spaces of this game will always be the same as they are spaces on the board provided. Which helps make the game quite easy to teach. Each player is one of the Lords of Waterdeep and has hidden agendas (normally a focus on two of the four quest types) that can help them dramatically in end game scoring. In the beginning of the game, each player is given two starting quests that require one or more of the five resource types (represented as colored cubes - sans gold). Players get a number of agents, from 2 to 5 to deploy on the board for which give them resources, intrigue cards, quest cards, allow them to purchase buildings, or to play intrigue cards. Quests cost resources to complete but reward with victory points, resources, or other abilities. Higher point quests typically reward only victory points, lower point quests reward with victory points and other items. Waterdeep Harbor allows 1-3 agents deployed there to play intrigue cards. After all agents are deployed, Waterdeep Harbor allows a second deployment of the agents there to other unoccupied locations. Which is quite a fun mechanic that shakes things up as being able to play both an intrugue card early and to redeploy for additional resources late allows for different strategies to be employed. What are intrigue cards? There are three basic types, those that hurt one other players resources, those that help the player alot and one other chosen player a little, and one that helps everyone to different degrees. There are also instant quests that can be played on another player. These particular quests are easy to complete but must be completed before any other quest by that player. Lords of Waterdeep is fast and is about as fun as a Euro can be. I haven't met a group that likes Euros or dislikes Euros that hasn't liked this game. Give it a try!

This is a resource book no player/GM should be without if your playing Pathfinder RPG. Covers magic in more depth than the core rulebook and adds a couple of new classes.

I have a friend who was interested in learning more about the Knights Templar and was very happy to receive this book.

The game was a Christmas gift and all other websites carried the same thing for $80-$100 or more. Overstock price was $$$$. You can't beat that especially at Christmas. The product arrived in a box that had a huge fist sizes hole punched in the side but the contents inside were umdamaged.

Book is great. The shipping box was beat to crap & the book binding was damage. damage was little, not worth the trouble of calling customer service & waiting for another.

I had ordered this book elsewhere as a gift, but after 2 months of waiting I cancelled the order, and ordered from Overstock. Much better experience, I had the books in my hot little hands in less than a week, and I saved $25!!! there were some minor cosmetic issues on the corners of the books, but hey, I saved alot of money by not getting them at my local game store, so I didn't even bat an eye at some dings on the cover.
