If memory serves, you will always (barring a warehousing hiccough) get the current printing from Paizo. The same is not true regarding any other retailer.

Yup... one of the title or copywrite pages will let you know the printing if it is higher than the first... its a little hard to find

Does this book give a hint to what is in the fabled "Pathfinder Chronicles #5" that was destroyed and talks about Durvin Gest's disappearance? Reading through it, my eyebrows shot up when I read Gest's namedrop by someone not from Golarion

Unless I'm missing something, it wouldn't nearly be the same amount again. None of the rules books enter the picture at all- just APs and smaller adventures. You're paying for the convenience of someone else doing the work of putting the adventure material in your virtual tabletop system for you. When you want to run a particular thing, you only pay for that particular thing, run it for a few months, and then get the next thing. There's no point to replicating your entire physical library. It's not a thousand bucks; it's twenty-eight (taking Dragon's Demand as an example).

Other good options: get adventures you don't already own. If you own all of them, check out the third-party adventures. Razor Coast is four stars on Paizo, and most of the complaints are addressed by the new format.

but if you're building a campagain set in Golarion, in The City of Korvosa as it is now, you need The CotCT AP, Shattered star AP, Guide to Korvosa, Varisia Birthplace, of Legends, and Inner Sea World Guide. When you consider 1) this is the target audience for realmworks and 2) this is a audience that wouldn't be using pre-written content, so would be less likely to have subscription to the adventure paths.

The design of the books prohibits this. Kindle doesn't handle the images/ maps well, and without these the page numbering and formatting would be off. Not to mention that by default kindle doesn't include page numbers, so loooking for something on page 90 would be really tough

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Dragons Unleashed and to a lesse extent Pathfinder Player Companion: Dragonslayer’s Handbook have the more up to date dragon information.

Usually the more recent book is considered the more up to date information on anything in it. you can check the Wiki sourcebook page to browse by year.

Also I always suggest browsing the wiki and looking at the reference sections for pages that interest you. once you find a book that comes up often, look it its page and if you think it would make a good addition to your collection.

Dragons are the subject that has had the most changes. Between Dragons Revisited and the module about Dragonfall that isn't talked about anymore. Some of the earliest 32 page player companions were based on countries in the inner sea, that now have their own 64 page books that build off the original's information. The other big one was that the Pathfinder chronicles campaign setting was replaced by the Inner Sea World Guide. and Gods and Magic 64 page book was replaced by the 200 page Inner Sea Gods

Also Crimson throne is just a hardcover edition, not a anniversary edition.

They have been on the record saying that creating one of these basicly takes a designer off the other products for 9-12 months.

part of this is mitigated by the "cutscenes" that show how powerful she is. If the PCs take a long time planning on taking her out at her next public appearance, and then the cut-scene with the general happens... it makes them think twice.

As I understand it there are disagreements between designers with how a gold dragon could do The Glorious Endeavor. We have been told not to expect much detail written about Hermea until these disagreements are worked out. I don't think there is enough detail for a good map

If you are looking for generic builds, then there is very, very little room to debate- take a long bow.

Crossbows can be very powerful, allowing you to go pure dex and a crit build...but that is only when you take a very particular build. Otherwise, they are inferior.

People only 'settle' for crossbows. And that is usually when they lack the str to make slings work.

In the long run, it doesn't matter as much as people think. Ranged combat is mostly about getting more shots off. A crossbow ranger gets crossbow mastery ignoring prerequisites at level 6 or 7... (if you are using ultimate campaign, any ranger worth his salt will retrain their unneeded reload feats at this time) at level 10 a crossbow ranger can be within 10-15 points per full attack from a longbow". The lack of manyshot means they can pick up clustered shots earlier, and are more likly to get improve critical. Both would be dealing between 125 to 150 a round

so exceptional pull doesn't add damage, it just lets you use bows that have a higher str rating.

Are you sure about it?

"Exceptional Pull: You have mastered techniques to get the most out of composite bows.
Benefits: When you wield a ranged weapon that you are proficient with and that has a strength rating, add 2 to the weapon's strength rating. You don't take a penalty on attack rolls for having a Strength modifier lower than the strength rating of a weapon, provided you're proficient with that weapon."

It says you add 2 to the weapon STR rating, not to your mod. That's why it says you don't get the penalty for having a STR mod lower than the rating.

So if the longbow has a STR rating of +3, you add +2 to it, without getting the penalty for not having the +5 STR mod.

Can someone confirm this?

if you have a strength modifier of +3 with a +3 composite bow, exceptional pull makes it a +5 bow that your 3 strength modifier doesn't take a penalty for... but you can grow into without having to rebuy a new bow... great for when your+3 composite bow has a+1, holy. And Flaming burst magical properties on it, and you now have a +5 STR modifier. In other words, it doesn't add the strength damage if you don't have the STR mod qualification for the damage.

"I want something that counters bows specifically, regardless of class. Just like shield users, 2H users, and dual-wielders have specific weaknesses."
How about the fact that the build eats all your feats?

Yeah there are 3 main "soft counters" to this:

1) soft cover which you negated with giving him improved precise shot,

2)Wealth management arrows and new bows cost a lot. You negated a good amount of this by allowing him the adaptive bow. Remember all arrows that are hits are not recoverable, and watch his arrow inventory. If he is machine gunning through 7 attacks a round and your average fight lasts 6 rounds, that's an entire stock of arrows Per fight. Most archers carry less than 15 stacks of arrows... so by the boss fight of a dungeon he should be rather low on ammo... once he runs out he's just another guy with a sword and a ton of useless feats. If he doesn't roll his 50% destruction check on each missed arrow when he's collecting the misses, call him out on it. Ranged characters don't need to be close up to deal damage, but should not have nearly as much disposable income to buy armor as a up close fighter after expenses on arrows.

3)social encounters where all of the required feats are useless.

Remember if you are trying to be realistic and not allow soft cover rules you also should not be building NPC so specifically to the weaknesses of the PCs. They should be built to make sense of the environment that they are found in. They Should mow many of these down. Many well built encounters will not even have the bad guys attack once, but use 2 spells from the spell caster that he can't use next encounter. By the same thought using 1/3 of the archers arrows but never hitting him is a win for most non boss fights.

When you updated your address, did you update both the shipping and billing address? Because if the charge fails due to the billing address being different from what your credit card has on file, the authorization sticks around for a few days but the card is never charged, so the download is not available.....

I'm not a Paizo employee... but this has happened quite often... so I would suggest reviewing that first.

Ouch. :/

Note the shipping section at the bottom of the campaign page:

*Core Games Ships Separately!
The Core Game is massive. To ensure its safety, it is being package into its own carton with corner protectors. It is too heavy to ship with other rewards. It would crush them!

Wave 1 - Estimated Delivery Summer 2017 Core Game / 1.5 Update Pack 

Wave 2 - Estimated Delivery Winter 2017 (Still hoping for Summer 2017)
Current Expansions

Wave 3 - Estimated Delivery Spring 2018
Gambler's Box, Promo and cross-over figures (that would be the pathfinder and zombiecide ones)

Wave 4 - Estimated Delivery Spring 2019 
New Expansions

Wave 5 & Beyond - Estimated Delivery Winter 2020
???

So you will end up getting the game this summer, to start playing through it so you know how to play once the pathfinder minis come in the spiring

Conquest of Bloodsworn Vale and Swords of Sin were really early adventures, prior to the world itself being written in the campaign setting book. 95% of the modules are still valid (except for J2: Guardians of Dragonfall which is pretty much the only thing completely written out of existence) There are a number of one-line comments that are ignored... but most of them are small... many are noted on the 'cannon conflicts category of the wiki

Its a busy time of the year, so many people are not checking the boards as often. Have you browsed Pathfinder Wiki? It has references at the bottom of each page, so you can see what books things came from, and I consider that a great starting point.

Is there a list somewhere that gives the actual monster for the minis?

I understand the hesitation to use actual monster names due to licensing, but that means for some of the lesser-known minis I have no clue what the actual creature represented is.

I don't think so. I've been thinking about doing this for a while, and will try to make a database for it when I do my next re-org of my minis later this year. If I see you at Connecticon, I'll try to have an up to date beta file ready and on a CD by then....

As someone who does lots of shipping of my own for EBay, I don't mind them. They can be reused, and are less likely to damage individual miniatures than the confines of wrapping it in most bubble-wrap or the stiff-ness of air-bags. Airbags also tend to deflate over time, so are less re-usable. Knowing that many of the peanuts are already being reused from the distributor's shipping to paizo makes it even more eco-friendly.

I'm not a Paizo employee, but as they will most likely have a backlog when they get in, I'll do my best to help in case you look before they get to this post.

Did you finalize your order on the site? Many people did not hit the final 'submit' needed to confirm the order/address was complete and correct.

Other hang ups may include your address not matching your credit card if you bought something else from the store at the same time as the beginner box here. It could also be hanging out in your sidecart (may be the same issue as finalizing I mention above)

I believe all finalized orders for the beginner boxes boxes were shipped July 6th (per This post) so you may want to check to ensure you finalized the order and everything on your account appears correctly.

I hope this (and the thread I linked to above) help!

I go all the way back to Harbinger, and to original-release Mage Knight before that. Plus, Star Wars Miniatures on the side. Let me assure you, I know about quantity. ^_^

I only use the Plano tackle boxes for Medium or smaller PFB minis. I've got a couple of larger tackle boxes for the 4e-era D&D Minis, and then a tall set of plastic drawers for the 3.5-era minis. And then larger boxes for Large or Huge minis. The Star Wars minis have their own set of drawers, plus a large box for the big stuff. The Mage Knight stuff is mostly in two big boxes, sorted by era (original vs. 2.0).

Ahh... right now mine are sorted by monster type (so Good outsiders are in one box, evil outsiders in another, PC races in another, monstrous humanoids in another, etc). This was to make it easier to find a certain monster quickly when prepping for a game. Maybe I'll have to re-think that organization.

I have a ton of plastic minis (over 2,000 sculpts and over 8,000 miniatures). I'm currently storing them in small shoe boxes and Rubbermaid containers about the same size as said shoeboxes. This has been more of an issue with the more brittle nature of PFS minis, I have found a number of broken minis, almost always rares. (all of my shattered star slurks are missing teeth, and ticks and insects are missing legs, many flying bases are broken off at the base)

So, how do people store their minis to prevent damaging them. I was looking at this link and it had me thinking about getting an Ikea Billy Bookcase, and adding drawer runners to the shelves, so I can more easily find a mini in the back as needed.

I'm not a paizo employee, but as it's the weekend I'll have a go at it.

It gets put in yours downloads section when it is boxed up and a shipping label is put on it. Not sure where you live or what shipping method you chose, but if you got the download on the 28th, then it shipped on Halloween. That would mean you are on business day 14(remember, for shipping estimates you don't count Saturdays Sundays, and might not count Vetrans day), and still within many of the shipping estimates.

In general the watermarked digital copy is not supposed to be distributed or leave the owner's possession, if a PDF with your watermark shows up on a file sharing site, its still their fault. Link where this was verified

They are both great books, Death's Heretic was a Barnes and Nobel award winner the year it came out. Redemption Engine mentions events from Death's heretic, but I don't think it spoils it in any way. If you read DH first, you have a little more details on Salem's history going into the story, but if you have decent knowledge of the inner sea countries (IE Rahadoum), you shouldn't get lost.

If I had to guess, I'd say that a single season of PFS doesn't produce enough full-body pieces of art to fill up a whole pawn set. So they'd either need to commission a bunch of new art to make it work, or the set would be mostly reprints.

Its usually one new full body per scenario, so 28. The main issue is that Scenario development and layout often finishes less than a month or two before the scenario is available to the public. Based on prior blogs, scenarios are played most often within 6 months of release. This means that you would have to wait until December to get the pawn set for the prior year, a full 4 months after the majority of the players have moved to the next season.

Without reading too far into it parts of Sargava and the underground Caverns feature terrain similar to the press pics of Primeval Thule. I would say the 'land of the lost' like underground caverns would be the best bet, as they havn't been fleshed out as much. Sargava has a player's companion and a novel set there.

The demigods part mentioned in their homepage makes me a little leary, as Golarion has a very specific cosmology and ladder of Devine beings....
