So, the real basis of my frustration is the first time i tried to order some AP dice from you guys, back in 2012.

I placed my order on Jan 18th (http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2ni1i?Question-on-My-Order), and had a similar "explanation" given to me then: "not in stock, 4-11 days, blah blah blah".

Two and a half months later (Mar 30th), after exactly 0 updates from Paizo as to why the dice were not available, I finally gave up and cancelled my order.

So, I don't care what your FAQ says, and I don't care how your business works. In my experience, Paizo cannot be trusted to deliver this type of product in a timely fashion.

It's not a big deal, but is an enormously irritating one.


Honestly - if you guys have so much trouble handling small orders of dice, you should just stop offering them.


When I ordered these dice, they were not shown to be out of stock. Now they are.

This happened the last time I tried to order dice from you guys as well. It's hugely irritating.


With further research, it seems like these are thing things that I am missing:

New Releases in October

  • Adventure Path #87: The Choking Tower (Iron Gods 3 of 6)
  • Campaign Setting: Ships of the Inner Sea (PFRPG)
  • Maps: Map Pack: Starship Corridors

New Releases in November

  • Adventure Path #88: Valley of the Brain Collectors (Iron Gods 4 of 6)
  • Maps: Flip-Mat: Red Light District
  • Modules: Plunder and Peril

New Releases in December

  • Adventure Path #89: Palace of Fallen Stars (Iron Gods 5 of 6)
  • Campaign Setting: Lost Treasures
  • Maps: Map Pack: Boarding Action

Questions:

1. Is it possible to get these grouped together and sent to me with my subscription discount?

2. Can I get my subscriptions re-started so that I get automatic shipments in the future?


So, my life has been really busy for the last six months, and I lost track of my subscriptions. It looks like I paid for my September subscription and got it shipped in Oct, but nothing has happened since then?

I have tried reading through this forum to figure out what happened, but there are way too many posts to get through.

Can somebody explain what happened and how I can get it fixed?


The catalog is nice, but I'd prefer a straight list...


Is there anyone that has a complete listing of Pathfinder products produced by Paizo?

I would especially like one that included the retail prices, if possible - I am trying to set up a checklist for my collection...


I recently received Half Dead City (AP 79). Yesterday, while reading it, a section of the book fell out (pages 1-14).

This is the first time that I have ever had this happen - is there any way I can get it replaced?

[Edit] - I meant to add that my copy of Half Dead City was from my subscription, not from a 3rd party retailer.


Please cancel my subscriptions for the following two items:

* Player Companion

* Gamemastery Cards


I don't think that I am necessarily over-thinking it... I missed a lot of the history of the game during the years that I spent playing Rolemaster and HERO/Champions, so some things are just not inherently obvious to me...

The reason I was thinking about all of this is that I have just started running a campaign with a much lower level of magic in it than the standard game seems designed for. I have said that all magic items must be commissioned (or found); the listed cost just seemed to low for how powerful an item it can be.

I agree that it is a very niche item, but it's one that the PCs would benefit immensely from as they try to build fortifications and a city to serve as the seat of power for the independent duchy they have found themselves responsible for.

Thanks for your help!


Okay, so I was trying to figure out exactly how the Lyre of Building only costs 13,000 gp.

The construction requirements say:

* Craft Wondrous Item feat (caster level = 3rd)

* Fabricate Spell (5th level spell, min caster level = 9th)

* 6,500 gp in materials

So, when I look at the Table for Estimating Gold Piece Values (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/magic-items#Table-Estimating-Magic-Item-Gold-Piece -Values), it says that "Use-activated or continuous items cost Spell level x caster level x 2,000 gp". But, that can't be accurate, because it comes out to 90,000 gp.

Then I notice that items that require a skill to use should be reduced in cost around 10%. This also cannot be right, because that only takes it down to 81,000.

Then I notice that charged items have a base cost of "Divide by (5 divided by charges per day)". Well, it has a single charge a week for the building component, and a daily charge for the attack negation effect. So, how to cost that out?

If we use the attack negation effect, the equation becomes Adjusted Base Cost = Base Cost / (5/1 charge/day) which would be 18,000 gp. Closer, but still not right.

If we use the building effect, it essentially has 1/7th of a charge per day (it can only be used once a week). The equation becomes Adjusted Base Cost = Base Cost / (5/(1/7 charge per day)), which comes out to 2,571 gp. Clearly, this isn't the right approach either.

So, I don't get it. What am I doing wrong?


I no longer wish to purchase these dice.


Thank you for the update. Please move the dice to my sidecart.


I know that you guys had snow last week - can I get an estimate on when this might ship? My order history says that that it should ship sometime in the next 4 - 11 business days. Since it typically takes a week or more to arrive, is it really possible that I won't see this order until Feb 14th?
