Are subscribers still getting emails when there are new releases for Slumbering Tsar? I haven't gotten one in ages to let me know there is a new volume out and I'd like to make sure it won't interfere with receiving the hardcover when it is released.
After reading another post here regarding gift certificates, I'm considering getting myself a couple while the exchange rate is working in my favor.
Couple of quick questions:
1) Do gift certificates expire?
How do you convert to Kindle...PLEASE HELP?
Instructions to do this would be handy!
Edit: looks like you need to grab a program called calibre to convert epub to mobi, then you can copy the file to the appropriate folder on your kindle/tablet. Off to experiment more.
I would never recommend buying PDFs from Battlecorps directly. If they ever update their files, you have a limited window to grab the files. Same thing if you buy the PDF. If you don't download right away (or say forget that you bought something), you can't grab it later. I've been trying to get the updated PDFs of all the core rulebooks that I bought and can't because the download time window has expired.
Since you can't get the PDFs at Paizo, you're far better off to purchase from DTRPG.com
I've been considering picking this up.
Does this version come with the PDF and the double sided map (similar to the one listed on the Conflict Games website)?
I'm curious, do the security settings used preclude the use of some more advanced PDF features?
I took a look awhile ago at an Eclipse Phase PDF and I really like the way the PDF was structured. You had the option of turning off the background layers, art and other options to get clean text if you were printing something. This is something that I feel is lacking in Paizo's PDFs. Any chance of adding something similar to future PDF releases?
Just to throw my 2cp in.
Like the OP I would prefer each side to have a seperate image on it, I've bought a couple of the various flip-mats, so if I need blank sides I've got them. Cool maps that I don't have to draw though... that would be very handy.
and an android app would be awesome.
I was looking at one of the preview PDFs for Eclipse Phase and they have a really nice option to turn off the various layers of their PDFs. If Paizo could do something similar I would be very impressed (I DM from an older tablet and it's sometimes slow going browsing through the PDFs).
Does the steel core extend all the way to the edge of the pad? I had two complaints about the original one. 1) the colors were too dark (resolved!) and 2) the edges were really flimsy with what seemed like a 1/2 inch border that there was no backing to.
I'd like to replace mine with something a little sturdier, but I'm nowhere near close to a FLGS/NSFLGS, so I sadly have no way of checking it out.
I think it was the tone of your post.
I ran a store for years and used to ke\ick people like this to the curb all the time while they screaming that I should be bending over backwards to keep thier business. Never hurt my sales at all. Sooner or later, they all get a wake up call and realize the world dosen;t owen them crap.
Same experience here. I appreciate good customer service but as a retailer I think people need to be good customers too. I'll bend over backwards to help out a customer who is polite and reasonable, but when confronted by aggressive or offensive behaviour my first thought is "how much time and effort do I devote to this before I fire this customer".
I think the iconics should be removed (certainly from the AP, I can see an argument for leaving them in the Pathfinder Module line). If iconics were to be provided for the APs, rather than putting them in the actual AP itself, 1st level versions (of all the iconics) should be added to the Player's Guide to the AP.
I'd like to see a product similar to Enemies & Allies (I think that's what it was called) from the original 3.0 releases. Something that has all the iconics from level 1 - 20. I occasionally do one-shot sessions and it would be useful having a roster of characters for someone dropping in for just a session or two.
I'm prepping for my Kingmaker game today and I have a quick question about Boggards. I see they get a "Sticky Tongue" attack that can be detached as a free (as opposed to swift/immediate action). When they are stuck to a target they can't move more than 10' away. My question is: what happens if the target tries to move more than 10' away on its turn? Does it drag the boggard with it (since the boggard can only detach on it's turn)?
So I've started checking out Pathfinder podcasts and I keep hearing that this one is supposed to be really good and I'd like to check it out.
How would one go about finding what URL to use to subscribe to the podcast if one did not use iTunes? (I use Media Monkey).
So here's something that came up for my weekend game. I was trying to find the Abadar article and couldn't locate it (until I busted out the google).
With all this fantastic material coming from Paizo, it would be nice if there was some type of online article index for the Companion/Chronicles/AP product lines. Any chance of seeing something like this in the future?
1st death in the 1st session.
Name: Hugo Alahandros
a) the PCs decide to change the plan on the fly, sending one character up the trail towards the camp (splitting the party yet again).
Kressle & co suffer some losses, but Kressle manages to down the paladin, cleric & barb of the group before demanding that the survivors surrender (which is where we ended the session).

I really like the little summation of the political scene in Brevoy, it nicely wraps up the charter issue with a reason for it to be issued (something that Stolen Lands didn't do so well IMO). The write ups are interesting as well...
I'll be keeping my eye on this one :)
I'm prepping a Kingmaker campaign to start in the next couple of weeks. I've got a pretty good handle on the region and the scope of play, but I do have one question that I can't seem to find the answer to.
Who are the Swordlords of Restov? Are they an actual political organization? Are they a collective of Aldori duelist who wield political power? Do they have any relation (official or unofficial) to the Lord Mayor?
Basically, I need to know who gives the charter to the PCs. Any suggestions?
So... maybe it's just me and my computer but does anyone else notice the Legacy of Fire headers on the pages of the map folio PDF as you scroll through it? I'm using Foxit and it's fine when I stop on a page and the image draws, but as I'm scrolling, before the image/map has rendered I'm seeing a header for the previous AP.
Just weirdness on my end?
For what it's worth, I'm really happy with the quality of the Chinese printers that Paizo is using. I've been a subscriber from the start and I've only had 2 books that had binding issues, unlike my 4E books (printed in the US) that are already seperating after only 2 weekends of use.
... Only one copy of Burnt Offerings is offered on Amazon right now for $999.00.
Was surprised to see this! Finally a retirement plan I can get behind :)
Took a quick look on ebay and found someone selling* the complete AP plus a few Chronicles books for about 30$.... but no individual listings of Burnt Offerings!
Impressive work for Paizo indeed.
* Edit: 30 for shipping too, but still 60 bucks ain't bad.

Most of the Foxit problems have been resolved as of the lastest version (especially the weird graphic not being behind the text issue as well as the upside-down text magnified issue).

Was just looking at the store blog and I saw this:
That's right! From now until the end of May, you can chop off another 10% on any single order on paizo.com. The 10% comes off your subtotal after any other discounts have been applied—including sale items and the Pathfinder Advantage—but before shipping and taxes are added. Just use the code PFRPG during checkout, and we'll do the rest. The more you purchase, the more you save!
Any chance I could get this applied to this order?
Although just looking into it, I ran across this in the store blog:

Quick follow-up to this order. I subscribed to the pathfinder modules on the same order as everything else. This will ship with my other Pathfinder subscriptions and not hold till the other stuff I ordered is ready to ship correct?
Good afternoon customer service peoples!
I just placed an order (#1173352) and I'm wondering if you can check the discounting on it. I'm not sure that I got the Pathfinder Advantage discount and the PFRPG discount.
This stuff looks fantastic, and I was really pleased with the quality of another WWG product I had purchased.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a decent inkjet printer for this (preferably something I can get a continuous ink system for)? I've been to the WWG website and can find all kinds of recommendations for printers that aren't manufactured anymore. I've bought 2 different color laser printers (toner flaking problems), 4 different inkjets (multitudes of problems). I WANT, WANT, WANT to start making (and more importantly for WWG, purchasing) some of this fantastic terrain, but cannot find a decent printer to do it with.
One thing I've noticed about 3.5 is that it doesn't really handle scaling monsters very well. In Library of Last Resort (may have the name wrong), there are several monsters that have been advanced many hit dice. The biggest problem with this is that BAB scales up so quickly that it makes for auto hits on every roll except ones. I'm coming around to the POV that HD/BAB could be boosted slightly, and any increase beyond that would come from doubling/tripling HPs.
The one other area I've noticed that 3.5 is a pain is in the sheer number of buffs available. I'm really starting to hate Dispel Magic. It's bad for the PCs (too much math to recalc) and even worse for the DM (too many monsters buffed). The higher level you get, the worse it seems to be.
