Suspend subscription : Usually a month or so, but you then pay and get all the items you missed.
Cancel subscription : You can restart when the item you want becomes available.
If you are asking to not receive the Iron Gods AP at all, then they will have to cancel the subscription, and you can restart it when the 1st chapter of the next (or some future) AP begins.
Thank you for the information. My intent was more along the lines of debugging the issue for others. Right now, the address that is listed as "Other Address" is the Address that I have used since AP volume #1. I changed nothing. What changed is I no longer have any subscriptions. I was hoping that could point the PMG and others to a section of code in order to debug the issue that others are having.
Long time VM Base Support, and then MVS/CICS Support.
I have noticed many threads about not being able to purchase items from the website because of the inability to add a Shipping Address, so for giggles I went and looked at "My Account" to verify that my Shipping Address was ok.
Well, under "My Subscriptions" on the "My Account" page, there is a phrase in BOLD RED Subscriptions cannot be processed without a shipping address.. Huh? I looked and my Address is listed as "Other Address", and under "My Address" on the "My Account" page it says that I have zero active address.
I think I figured out what occurred. I was a Charter AP subscriber, and my Address has been the same since the beginning. Because my wife and I are both retired now, and we need to ensure that the financials are working (and I am not interested in Iron Gods AP), I cancelled my AP subscription, which was my last subscription. At THAT point my "Shipping Address" became "Other Address".
Now, I have been able to order some PDFs (ie. no shipping needed), but I have not tried to order any physical product.
Also, I can not find a place / method to add a "Shipping Address".
I hope that this has been helpful in finding a solution(*) to the inability of some folks not being able to order product since they can not add a Shipping Address.
(*) I almost reverted back to my corporate days and said "solution the problem" shudder
I use the following two products:
That way I give consistent answers to knowledge checks.
However, I may incorporate some of the answers above. Thanks,
Oh, that is a new one on me. I looked under Core Rules FAQ, but could not find that one. Could you provide me a link, thanks muchly.
edit: never mind, found it, and thanks..
Papa's wrong though;
And according to the PRD and the FAQ and a Design Team ruling, daylight can be used as a arcane spell, and that arcane always counts before it being used as a divine spell.
So, Aasimar -> Daylight (with a level in sorcerer) meets the Able to cast 2nd level arcane spells.
Please point out where I am wrong.
You could also play an Aasimar. Using the 3rd level daylight ability, you can qualify for Mystic Theurge at 5th character level.
Cleric 3 / Sorcerer 1 (emphyral (sp?)) allows you to take mystic theurge. As a 10th level character you would be Cleric 3 / Sorcerer 1 / MT 6.
Cast as a Cleric 9 and Sorcerer 7, and with the emphyral wildblood line, wisdom is the casting stat for both.

Sure, lay it out and the group will take a look. Remember everyone, they are judging on backstory as much as crunch. I work elements from player backstories into future encounters to include something for everyone.
Got into a different Kingmaker PbP, so I'll drop out of consideration and let someone else have a run at it.
Not Paizo staff here, but the usual reason for that is a mismatch in the address that you have on file with Paizo and the address that the bank has on file. The addresses have to match exactly, down to the last comma and period and abbreviation.
edit: If that is not the issue, then you will need to wait till Monday when CS comes into the office.
whiskey tango foxtrot?
You seem to know what you are talking about, but I do not believe the rest of us do. Please explain, in detail, and use simple words. Do not assume any knowledge on our parts as to what you are saying / implying.
What I have started doing lately is take a couple of words central to the theme of the character and translate them into a language appropriate for where in Golarion they are from. If your character is from the Tian-Xa area, try an Adian language. If he's from Varisia, use Italian. Galt would be French.
Very interesting !!! and THANKS !!
I use translate.google.com for things like Dwarven, Terran, Goblin, etc that the NPCs use in my play by post, but just never thought of using this for names. Dang, that is a good idea!
ps. I am creating a human warpriest of Irori (sacred fist archetype) and using Italian between "Reign of Winter" and "Sacred Fist" it can be combine into "Sacro D'Inverno"
Keep on trying. It should eventually work. LOTS of folks are buying the PDF now. It is 0333 Eastern Daylight Time (USA) here, so just be patient grasshopper.
I can't say for sure, but from your post you ordered the books. You are only an AP subscriber. You only get PDFs of books that you are getting because you are a subscriber to that particular line. The AP subscription only gets you the PDFs for the APs, not the others.
But then I could be reading the situation wrong and am completely misinterpreting the words.
+1. Not my cup of tea either. I am playing NWN2 for the 10th or so time. Also have played ToEE at least 4 times. Guess I will give "Divinity - Original Sin" a try next.
It's interesting how different people reading the same thing read completely different motives and tones into the exact same material. I read the statement as an obviously facetious statement, clearly not something actually meant as a serious suggestion. I honestly can't see how anyone could possibly interpret it as serious, and wold have been perplexed had the poster felt the need to further point out the obvious sarcasm with an emoticon or "j/k" (and to be honest probably a little annoyed by the use of those).
Couple of comments so perhaps you can understand my point of view.
I believe that it is a "generational" interpretation. I am 67, and my dad taught me the "old" values from the WWII generation. While I have passed this on to my children and grandchildren, I see so many teenagers and 20-somethings today have the attitude that I read into the original statement.
I did not take it as serious, in that it was to be taken literally, but I read it as "I want it FREE, I want it NOW, and you jackasses better get working on this above all else, because I WANT it!"
Read his two posts. "not buying the book, just want to read it" and "lock them in an office till it is done." With many of my generation and background "them's fightin words, hoss" and like I said, I failed my will save.
And as for Papa's reaction to your earlier post, mine was pretty much the same as his, but I chose not to post. A problem which could have been avoided by an emoticon.
Words have meaning and consequences, which I learned the hard way early in my business career of 40 years (retired now).
A simple "lol" or "j/k" or ":-)" would have garnered a completely different reaction from me.
awesome... If they need help, they should just lock the doors to the office and tell everyone they cannot leave untill the work is finished
You do realize that Paizo does not have to put anything into the PRD. This is not required by the OGL, regardless of what some folks think. And they do not recuperate the time and money spent doing so, other than good will to their customer base.
I know that I am going to get in trouble for the following, but I failed my will save:
What are you, 12? Paizo folks have SOs, families, friends, and other things to do, rather than sit around all day and do just what you want them to do.
ps. Moderator, delete this post if you need to. The Quoted statement just really pissed me off.
With all the other books that need to be added, and the current web issues with order processing, credit cards, address (etc) that need to be fixed, I suspect that it will be closer to three of four months before it is added to the PRD.
I think that I read somewhere that the PDF will be $9.99 (American Dollars). If you are in a hurry, buy the PDF.

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.
