The listing that everyone was seeing on Amazon but sold by FunAgain Games was an error on Amazon's site. We've been in touch with the FunAgain guys and they have assured us that they set up their offering to be a pre-order until the 30th and any orders they are receiving between now and then will be delayed until after the release date.
I hope that helps clear some of this up.

Is there going to be anyone demoing the Card game at the Spiel Convention at Essen, Germany in October?
I believe that they will have translated copies of the rules and translations of the cards there but I'm unsure if they will be running demos in the hall. I've emailed them to find out so stay tuned.
I have a question about the critical fumble deck. A few of the cards have something like (DMG 237) or some such after the description of the fumble. Can anybody tell me what, exactly, that means? At first I thought it meant "damage" but I'm seeing it on a few that don't necessarily deal with damage.
Those were page references that pointed you to the old 3.5 books. In this case, DMG 237 was Dungeon Master's Guide page 237.

Parking at the hotel is extra even for those staying at the hotel. I'll double-check that the ATM is full and as far as I'm aware, there should not be any remodeling during our show. I think we got quite enough of that last year at the Redmond location.

No there are still plenty of available rooms at the hotel and on our block so feel free to book at anytime.
A quick question if I pledge $15 do I get the chronicle sheet as well or just the PDF.
At $15 you just get the Emerald Spire PDF. To get both the chronicles sheet and the ES PDF, you have to pledge $35 and that gives you the game and a bunch of other stuff. The best way to figure what you get in each pledge level is to consult the graphics near the bottom of the KS page.
If you're not 100% sure on the value of attending PaizoCon this year (since we don't have 1-day tickets) you and your wife can always drop in and wander about to get a feel for the event. You won't be able to take part in any of the seminars or activities (and won't get a swag bag) but you'll be able to meet some folks and see what PaizoCon is really about.
Then you'll be better armed to make a decision about future PaizoCons.
It will be another few months before we begin to post the events. We are still coordinating the Special Guests and working on our internal programming for the show.
We will have a variety of panels and workshops that are open seating, as well as open gaming areas and plenty of non-Pathfinder Society gaming.
Keep your eyes peeled for more news!
Any plans on selling the other "styles" they make, such as the milk, or white chocolate here on Paizo.com?
This is the only product that the manufacturer is offering through the Hobby distribution channel so far. I may look into ordering direct from the manufacturer but since these are *perishable* I'm not sure how many SKUs I want to have on hand.

My best guess is that may have been the 13 Coins...?
What's the parking situation at the hotel for those of us who are local and won't be staying at the hotel? Can we pay the day parking rate and park at the hotel, or is that for guests only?
Te rates we've shown should be available to all of our attendees. Just be sure to mention that you are there for PaizoCon.
We are expecting these back in sometime in mid September.
Are there plans to have this set available again?
I don't believe that they've made any kind of decision about issuing a new Starter Set or new coin packs but I'll be keen to discuss this with them in person at Gen Con. Hopefully I come away with some good news to report. Until then, stay tuned.
Will registration be open the day before to pick up badges ahead of time?
I've thought a lot about this option and right now I'm leaning towards NO because there's so much involved in setting up for registration.
We're trying to streamline the registration process this year and I'm hopeful that we will be able to cycle folks thru the line much faster and get you all off to your games on time.
I was trying to do you all a favor and have the evening games start and end at an earlier time but if everyone would rather shift all the 6PM open gaming slots to 7PM then I'm prepared to do that. Just let me know and we'll make it so. At the end of the day it's YOUR show and we just want everyone to have fun so help me do that. :)
I have good news and bad news.
The good news is that the attendance for PaizoCon 2012 has exceeded expectations which means we've now sold through all the rooms the hotel can set aside for us for the room block. Hurray!
The bad news is we're out of rooms in the room block and all rooms booked from this point on will have to be at the regular rate.

You have mail!
Currently Reaper isn't offering those into the distribution channel so I'm not sure if we'll be able to offer them or not. But if we do, I'm sure that James Jacobs will be talking them up so stay tuned.
Unfortunately you are corect that we do not take AMEX cards but that doesn't mean that you are SOL. You can purchase a pre-paid VISA or MC at your local grocery store and then use that to purchase whatever you want from our site. I guess you could also get someone else to buy you store credit and then you could pay them back.
The guys at Campaign Coins are reevaluating the line for determining what to re-mint and I don't have an answer on what that will be right now. We've spoken lots of times about bringing back a Starter Set in some configuration and restocking the GameMastery line but I'll know more in the coming months. Stay tuned!
