According to the tracking number my order arrived in Springfield, MA on July 18. That was more than a week ago and I still haven't gotten it yet. It shouldn't take this long to reach New Hampshire. I was wondering if you had any way of telling where it is. I am really looking forward to these two books.
1) There is no additional tracking and Paizo doesn't know where it is.
2) Until last month, UPS-MI would send my subscription thru Windsor CT and it would arrive usually 3 or 4 days after that to Poughkeepsie NY. Last month and this month, mine also went thru Springfield MA and it took 15 days to get to me last month. *sigh*
3) The July 18th date, same as mine, was not posted till July 23rd, so I think either UPS-MI, or UPS messed up, but I am not expecting delivery till early August.
ps. To Paizo folks, not complaining, just trying to give James some info.
There are two camps in this battle.
1) Paladins can be of any alignment.
Let me introduce a 3rd camp;
I, obviously, fall into the 3rd camp. With that said, a very good PDF for this is Green Ronin: Book of the Righteous. It is for DnD 3.0 / 3.5, and one of these days it will rise to the top of my to do / project list, and I will finish "converting" it to the Pathfinder rule set.
Just following up on our conversation yesterday afternoon.
AP #82 just showed up and even though it seems to have traveled all of the New England states, it is in perfect condition, so you will cancel the replacement copy and just ship AP #83 and 84.
Thanks for all your help.
ps. I miss my Charter AP Subscriber tag......
Character Sheet - G'Nal:
Elf rogue 1
NG Medium humanoid (elf)
Init +6, Senses low-light vision; Perception +6
Inquisitive Archaeologist You have studied the architectural styles of nations throughout the Inner Sea region, but none have fascinated you like the architecture of Ancient Osirion. Hearing that the famed necropolis of Wati has f inally been opened for exploration, youï¿½ve come to that city to get f irsthand experience with the lost secrets of Ancient Osirionï¿½s master builders. You gain a +2 trait bonus on Knowledge (engineering) checks, and that skill is always a class skill for you. In addition, you gain a +2 trait bonus on Perception checks to f ind concealed or secret doors in structures built in the style of Ancient Osirion.
Keen Senses (Ex) Elves receive a +2 bonus on Perception skill checks.
Low-Light Vision (Ex) You can see x2 as far as humans in low illumination. Characters with low-light vision have eyes that are so sensitive to light that they can see twice as far as normal in dim light. Low-Light Vision is color vision. A spellcaster with low-light vision can read a scroll as long as even the tiniest candle flame is next to her as a source of light. Characters with low-light vision can see outdoors on a moonlit night as well as they can during the day.
Silent Hunter (Ex) Elves are renowned for their subtlety and skill. Elves with this racial trait reduce the penalty for using Stealth while moving by 5 and can make Stealth checks while running at a -20 penalty (this number includes the penalty reduction from this racial trait).
Sneak Attack (Ex) If you can catch an opponent when he is unable to defend himself effectively from your attack, you can strike a vital spot for extra damage. Your attack deals 1d6 points of extra damage anytime your target would be denied a Dexterity bonus to AC, or when you flank your target. Should you score a critical hit with a sneak attack, this extra damage is not multiplied. Ranged attacks can count as sneak attacks only if the target is within 30 feet. With a weapon that deals nonlethal damage, you can make a sneak attack that deals nonlethal damage instead of lethal damage. You cannot use a weapon that deals lethal damage to deal nonlethal damage in a sneak attack, not even with the usual -4 penalty. You must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot and must be able to reach such a spot. You cannot sneak attack while striking a creature with concealment.
Trapfinding (Ex) You add +1 to Perception skill checks made to locate traps and to Disable Device skill checks. You can use the Disable Device skill to disarm magical traps.
Warrior of Old As a child, you put in long hours in combat drills, and though time has made this training a dim memory, you still have a knack for quickly responding to trouble. You gain a +2 trait bonus on Initiative checks.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency Rogues are proficient with all simple weapons, plus the hand crossbow, rapier, sap, shortbow, and short sword. Rogues are proficient with light armor, but not with shields.
Weapon Familiarity (Ex) Elves are proficient with longbows (including composite longbows), longswords, rapiers, and shortbows (including composite shortbows), and treat any weapon with the word "elven" in its name as a martial weapon.
G'Nal is typically tall and slender for his race, standing at an even six feet tall and weighing 140 pounds, however his frame is not without some muscle as well, likely due to all the time he spends in tombs, moving things around and carrying relics of ancient times back to the outside world.
His dark brown hair is kept long, however whenever he is exploring a tomb or working on a trap, he keeps it tied back behind him as once he almost lost his head as his hair got caught in a trap while loose.. His skin is perpetually pasty white due to the amount of time he spends indoors. In sharp contrast to his hair and skin, his eyes are a clear, crystal blue, the vibrant pupils taking up very nearly the entire visible part of his eyes.
Despite the hard times he has lived with for as long as he can remember, his personality is fairly laid-back and relaxed, although his passion for exploring ancient tombs, especially those in Osirion, is when he becomes more forth right and forceful.
Growing up, his parents always taught him that physical possessions were always less important than sharing what you had, that it was better to live free and help others than to be obsessed with the material. That, while trusting people would often cause you pain, it was better than not trusting at all. G'Nal took the lessons of his mother and father to heart, adopting many of the tenants of their philosophies as an adult.
G'Nal grew up in the city of Absalom, the son of merchant elves. While he had the ability to be able to continue on the family tradition, but his sense of wanderlust and his carefree attitude towards the world, finally dictated that he would always be a wanderer and travel around. Even when he went on trips with his father, he would go off and explore some nearby old ruin to try and discover its secrets. It was during one of these, what he called, side trips that he met Kepler, a gnome archaeologist, who was exploring the same old ruin that G'Nal had heard of. The two of them became instant friends and G'Nal vowed that this would be his last merchant trip, and that he would take off with Kepler and explore the wonders of the world. So after returning to Absalom, he told his parents that he was leaving, and while disappointed they gave him their blessing to continue on.
Years flew by, and the young elf learned many skills of the trade, and inherited Kepler's intense interest in Osirion, and he promised himself someday that he would return their and learn all he could. Finally, Kepler was starting to succumb to old age, and he retired and returned to Absalom where G'Nal stayed for a bit. Hearing that the town of Wati in Osirion was opening up the tombs for exploration, G'Nal decided to leave and explore. On his way out, he talked with his mentor and friend, Old friend, I am going to explore the ruins in Wati. I will bring you back something that we find, so you can once again look upon the wonders of the Old Pharaohs. And with that said, he took the next ship out of Absalom and headed to Wati.

My apologies for putting you guys through hoops, however I have to make some changes, so please;
1) Cancel the Pawns Bestiary Box 4.
Sorry for all the work, but with my wife also now retired (as of July 1st) I just have to cut back on my entertainment expenses. I was hoping not to have to do this, but it just works better for us.
Sorry for followup post, but I just looked closely at order 3189876.
It lists two different shipping costs.
Shipping & Handling
The math is wrong in the first one, it seems that I am paying the cost to ship the replacement AP #82.
Read THIS FAQ entry.
You have not been charged, it is an authorization. You will not be charged till the order actually ships. Also, declined payment method is almost always an address discrepancy between what your bank knows as your address and what Paizo knows as your address. It has to match EXACTLY.

Totem Transformation (Su): At 2nd level, an eagle shaman may adopt an aspect of the eagle while retaining her normal form. This ability functions as the bear shaman ability, but the druid may select from the following bonuses: movement (fly speed 30 feet [average], the druid must be 5th level to select this bonus), senses (low-light vision, +4 racial bonus to Perception), or natural weapons (bite [1d4], 2 talons [1d4] for a Medium shaman). While using totem transformation, the eagle shaman may speak normally and can cast speak with animals (birds only) at will.
And PRD says wrote:
Does the 5th level Totem Transformation fly speed enable the druid shaman to take the Hover feat? (Yes, the DM is allowing 'monster' feats).
I understand how UPS-MI works. In 81 APs received, once UPS-MI started being used it never went to Springfield MA before. Also note that it left your warehouse on June 14th, so 8 business days later was June 25th, last Wednesday, which makes yesterday the 11th business day.
I was hoping to get it before we left town on vacation, so I won't know till July 9th as the mail is being stopped till then, but I will let you know if it does not show up in the mail then.
A package containing 1 item from Paizo Order #3150002 is expected to ship from the Paizo warehouse by Friday, June 20 via Standard Postal Delivery, estimated 4 to 8 business days in transit.
It entered the USPS on June 16th.
Problem is that for some unknown reason it entered the Post Office at Springfield MA, rather than all the others did at Mid-Hudson NY.
When should I become concerned?
See THIS post from Vic about why no PDF Subscription.
What I do, is put the book into my cart, then go to the cart and "save it for later". That way I can see what has interested me and when the item comes out it is a tickler to then order the PDF and remove the book. It also makes me rethink if I really want it or was it just an impulse.
I would like to float a couple of ideas to help solve this issue of spammers.
1) New accounts only, ie. not an alias of existing good accounts, are allowed to be created during Paizo business hours only and by approval of Paizo staff.
2) While I really dislike the idea of super users, start with a couple off shore, perhaps Steve Geddes (Australia?), and give them permission to "freeze" an account that is spamming. Not clear it up, just prevent them from posting more. When they freeze an account an email is sent to that person from webmaster with some text and how they can be removed from being frozen. Then it is followed up by Paizo staff the next business day.

I worked for a company that supported main frame computers, and some of the support contracts were off shored to India. They would work from 1500 to 2400 (or so) so that their work hours coincided with US work hours. This could be a person from India who finished his day job over there, and is logging on in the evening to make a couple of extra bucks.

Touched by Divinity (Hierophant) As long as you can remember, youï¿½ve had an unexplainable interest in one deity in particular. One of your parents may have been a priest of this deity, or you may have been an orphan raised by the church, but these alone cannot explain your deep connection to the faith. Youï¿½ve always felt calm and at ease in places holy to the deity, and often have dreams about the god or goddess visiting youï¿½most often in the form of a sacred animal or creature. Your faith is strong, even if you donï¿½t happen to be a divine spellcasterï¿½if you are a divine spellcaster, you should be a worshiper of this deity. You begin play with a silver holy symbol of your chosen deity for free. In addition, choose one domain associated with your chosen deity. You gain the use of that domainï¿½s 1st-level domain spell as a spell-like ability usable once per day (CL equals your character level).
Weapon and Armor Proficiency Clerics are proficient with all simple weapons, light armor, medium armor, and shields (except tower shields). Clerics are also proficient with the favored weapon of their deity
Gabriel is the son of the leader of a traveling gypsy caravan and his wife. His father leads the small band of travelers all over Varisia, trading and performing small magic tricks for the crowds to earn an income. His wife, danced and sang and as pretty as she was, worked for the coin that that crowd placed in the offering box at the foot of the stage. She also was the troupes healer, because she had been raised by a very faithful family, and actually was a priestess of Desna before learning the dances and songs of the road. Gabriel loved the road, and the wandering. He dreamed many times of what it would be like to be off on his own, wandering the lands and learning the tales of this world. During on of the dreams, a figure spoke to him, saying "May the light carry you far today.' When he spoke of this to his parents, his mother told him that it was the Azata Empyreal Lord Sinashakti, and both of them taught their son about him.
Upon reaching his 18th birthday, with his parents permission as they were near Magnimar where devotees of Sinashakti were know to gather, he left the troupe and found them and became accepted as a follower of Sinashakti. Now, even though he took after his mother mostly, he did not forgo the ways of magic that his father was trying to teach him, although he never mastered the spell book, there was a spark of the arcane in him. On his 21st birthday, after successfully completing the required rituals, he left Magnimar and wandered the country, healing and learning as he went.
He finally ended up in the city of Kenabres, just as the holy days started, looking for information and tales on the festival, and also any information about the wardstones that are legendary in the south.

I think that I confused both of us. Let me try again.
On your Account page, there are two places where a street address is put in.
1) Under "My Payment Methods" is a button that is "Manage Payment Methods". Click that button and update the payment method for your credit card to have the address that the credit card provider has on file for you.
2) Under "My Addresses" is a button that is "Manage Shipping Addresses". My understanding is that address is where you want the product shipped to.
So in your circumstance, #1 must be your address, and #2 would be your buddies address.
This is what I understand the process to be. However, lets wait for Customer Service to answer to be certain.
The address difference is the issue. The address for your payment method (credit card) must exactly match what the credit card issuer has on file. There is a way to change the shipping address to your friend. I believe that on your account page, under "My Address" there is a button that will change the "shipping address" only and leave the "My Payments" address along. However, I am not 100% sure of that as I do not have that concern myself.
edit: Also, you won't receive access to the PDF till the physical copy actually ships.
