I would like to cancel all pending orders, and subscriptions; this includes order #1336479. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Thanks


I added a separate order to this order which I used the holiday discount with, and looking at the order now and seeing the price it seems that the discount was no longer applied. Is this because I moved it to ship with the subscription order?


I was wondering if there was a problem and that was why this hasn't shipped yet, or what. Thanks.


I think the word "greats" could definitely be argued against here.


Is there any chance someone has a high-res digital copy of that map? I really want to get something printed so I can use it for my game. I'm running a homebrew campaign set around Sandpoint, and that map would not only be really, really helpful but also is one of my favorites.


A couple of nights ago I had a dream about a zombie apocalypse and the first I heard of it was from Jason's "from the future" blog where he was warning of us of it happening in the "world of tomorrow." Wtf, really.

I had as similar idea, but the entire campaign was not to take place in the north. My campaign was centered around an ancient race that left Golarion in the distant past and their ancient god that dwelt in the Dark Tapestry. Anyway some of these ancient folks were coming back and their god was following them through the dark places between the stars (they were a space fairing people) and the left an ancient city at the Roof of the World. The PCs came across strange events in the campaign that were seemingly unrelated but were all caused by the coming of this Azathoth-like entity. I even had one part of the campaign where the PCs were transported to a sort of ancient space station in the further reaches of the solar system and they witness the passing of the alien ships and the god on their way to Golarion. Anyway the campaign would climax at the Roof of the World in this frozen city.


I don't know if this has been said, but considering that Wizards apparently only releases two books for their settings each year now, I would say that a big draw to Golarion would be actual support for the setting.

Take it from a resident.

Armpit huh? Then I guess that makes East Texas the Asscrack of Hell, since is so damned humid here with thick bushy growth.

God, that was terrible. I'm so sorry, but I can't express it any other way.


Could you cancel my Pathfinder RPG subscription and make sure that I'm not charged for the core rulebook.

Thank You,


I would like to cancel all of my subscriptions please. Please do not ship July's orders.

Thank you


I did NOT know about that. Thanks, I'll be sure to check it out.


IF this belongs somewhere else please move it or delete it (if it doesn't belong anywhere) if you have to.


I had it in me to start writing a little story set in Absalom. Just jotted down what I thought so far, figured I'd share it. I hope this doesn't violate no legalities, but anyway here it is and I should write more later:

The Merchant of Absalom

Soloman Hapes stood like an iron statue as the boom and hiss of the waves resounded about the ship as the wind hurled it toward port. The sprit swung gently, ropes grinding against strong pine, in the wind as he closed his eyes and felt the needle-like spritz of the Inner Sea’s warm waters against his face. He heard the gulls singing songs of gluttony. He heard the sailors preparing the ship for dock. He heard the waves crashing against the shores of Absalom. He heard the city’s legion of strange voices calling him home.
He opened his eyes and turned round to look at the man that stood behind him. A gaunt figure with his eyes wrapped in a dirty rag above where dried blood still stained his face. The man was looking in the direction of the city and Solomon could see that he was breathing it in.
“How long’s it been,” the man asked Solomon, “since you been home last?”
“A long time. You?”
“Twenty-seven years,” the blind man said stepping closer to Solomon, never once second-guessing where his feet fell. “Hard to believe I’ll never see her again.”
“I’m sorry. We can find a healer in the city,” Solomon said turning away from the man and looking back toward the vast metropolis that hurriedly approached.
“The hell! I won’t let no heathen priest lay no hands on me,” he said spitting on the deck.
Solomon laughed, “I’ll never understand why your so fervent in your faith to a god who died before you were even born.”
“Cause he ain’t dead. Asides, I don’t need no eyes, I can still smell her. Like an aged whore she smells, always ready to receive, and always more than you can handle or afford.”
Solomon stared at the old captain. His eyeless gaze peering through the city, but not beyond it, like he saw something there that no man could perceive with the eyes of his birth.

While I'm someone who's been pretty vocal on Pathfinder RPG staying close to 3.5, you have my sympathies there. I want to assure you, however, that the outlook I favour would give (people like) you all the 3.5 departures and innovations you'd like to see in the two PFRPG rulebooks, as long as the remainder of the fanbase could "play 3.5" as you put it. But we can't, or at the very least can't do so using Paizo's Adventure Path modules published in August 2008 or later. And that's what this difficult issue is really about.

No one begrudges you (and those who think like you) the joy of trying out a new, exciting ruleset. People only get vocal about wishing to stay nearer to 3.5 when they don't want to be forced to buy a new ruleset just to continue enjoy the full benefit of their Pathfinder subscriptions (modules, Chronicles, APs).

We can only hope that Paizo's final solution will satisfy a great enough number of people in both camps (those primarily wishing to buy a new ruleset, and those primarily wishing to buy other products based on that ruleset). It's a thin line to walk, and I hope Paizo can pull it off.

No, I agree completely and I understand those wanting to continue using 3.5 with Pathfinder, I will continue using a large number of my own 3.5 books as well. But also, those people must also understand that Paizo IS creating a new ruleset, and not just rehashing the same ol' thing that Wizards put out a few years back, and sadly that's what some folks want. I agree I hope a good balance has been struck with the Pathfinder RPG, as I believe too much of a departure would be bad, and sticking too close would be just as bad.

But, I have faith in Paizo, and I think generally most of the people here do as well.


Thanks James. I'm just really worried about Pathfinder being too much like 3.5 as Beta had some wonderful ideas. I just hope you guys didn't listen too much to the crowd that just wanted a new cover for their 3.5 Player's Handbook.


And I thought that was some of the most interesting things about the Beta. If they want to play 3.5 they should, not try to ruin Pathfinder.


I've been hearing all of this about classes being returned to being closer to 3.5. This terrifies me, because I loved most of the changes. What is everyone meaning by this? Give me some examples of what you're talking about and how you know this. Please :)


This hasn't been posted in for quite some time. Whatever happened to Zogonia? The site is down still.


I received my shipment, but it didn't contain the Legacy of Fire Player's Guide Companion.


Hi,

I received this order, but the Legacy of Fire Player's Guide Companion wasn't included in the package I got. I was wondering if you could ship the player's guide in another package.

Thanks,


Pathfinder 19 and the other items in my subscriptions haven't been shipped as of yet and I was wondering why as I've read that others have received there's.

They have been in my "side cart" for over a month now and I was wondering when I should expect them to be shipped.


Is there a chance you could upload a blank one without the input fields?

Thanks,


Also the idea of them being "crow-haunted" could bring more uses of the carrionstorm into play, which I think is a really interesting monster.

Thanks for the help, I think I see now what I can do to make things a bit more exciting for those PCs.


Yeah, faceless stalker! I don't know why they didn't cross my mind.

I don't really want to move Aldern out completely, I just want to throw in a little bit more to the mystery so that the PCs aren't so sure of themselves. They are great roleplayers but I don't want them to feel like they are just going through the motions. I want to add a bit more mystery to it for them.

Maybe the faceless stalker also impersonates Aldern in town and makes the PCs think maybe that Aldern isn't involved after all.

Also in Maginmar I wanted the murder mystery to continue and not have the PCs go almost directly from Aldern's townhouse to the Sawmill. One of the PCs already has some involvement with the murders in Magnimar previously as a partner of his was murdered by the Brothers Seven. I think maybe a continuation of the investigation would be nice. Maybe leading the PCs to a confrontation with the Skinsaw Men in the Golem Works as they attempt to murder a greedy "golemsmith" before they go to the sawmill.


I'm in a bit of a tough spot it seems. Three members of my group have played up through the Skinsaw Murders before with a different DM and the whole mystery within the Skinsaw Murders isn't going to be quite as exciting. I was thinking of a few ways to change up things involving the Murders in Sandpoint and their time in Magnimar.

One thing I'm thinking of altering is Aldern Foxglove's part to play in all of the events. I want to keep him involved in the murders but maybe not as the primary perpetrator. I was thinking of having one of the Brothers of the Seven come to Sandpoint in the guise of a traveling jester and guide Foxglove along the path. Also I was considering making this Brother a Doppleganger so that through taking on the form of one of the PCs, the one Aldern's obsessed with, they can place suspicion upon them. This is just a beginning idea. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Hi, I want to cancel my Planet Stories Subscription including the first book I'm sceduled to receive. My order number for the subscription is: 1080363. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,


The dwarf ranger in my group took her out with one critical from a musket (from the PFCS) and rolled max, so he got add another die to the damage. We were also using the critical hit deck and he drew one that did triple damage... needless to say she died real quick from that lucky shot.


I'm sure someone at Paizo has thought of this already, but I would really like to see an Adventure Path deal with the Whispering Tyrant. I can only imagine what your devious minds would think of with all his undead minions. Not to mention the awesomeness of adventuring in Ustalav.


This order was shipped on Aug. 4 and I was told to wait until the end of this week and it has yet to arrive.


the Mexican Weather Channel along with the late


I think my recent order was lost in the mail, it was near $100 worth of books. If this is the case can another shipment be sent to me or do I just have to deal with the loss? If that is the case then I think I may not be dealing with Paizo any longer.
