Interesting news. Sadly I already have them all, or I'd jump in quick.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

There's this page which helps keep track of the reading order and relationships between the novels and the now sadly discontinued webfiction. I'm not sure how up to date it is though.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

You probably will be able to once it gets released.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

You'd be best sending the key code and other purchase details to customer.service@paizo.com so they can look into what's happening.

For other issues with those codes they've asked for them to be sent privately rather than have them posted publicly.

Also, you might try copy and paste from the Humblebumble page to the Paizo site when entering the code if you haven't done so already.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

The customer service people have asked for the details of this issue, including the redemption code, to be emailed to them. They need the code in order to fix the problem, but obviously don't want it in public posts. The email to use is customer.service@paizo.com

Fixes will be made in the order they get the emails. Details are in this thread.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Yep. Looks like the traffic's killed the personalization system for now.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Many thanks.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Also, could I please have the holiday16 code applied to my current sidecart, Order 3837467? The system didn't give me the option to apply it.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

I just received this order, and found that I am missing the Pathfinder Map Pack: Marsh Trails, and the Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Noble Estate. The sheet which normally lists the contents of the order was also missing.

I do have the digital downloads available for the missing maps, and the label on the shipping box lists 6 items shipped, not the four I received.

Could I please have the missing maps sent with my next subscription?

I'd skip that meal - they're unfit for human consumption, and have too great a chance of causing food poisoning.

Paul,
We have added a pledge level for 4 books, and incorporated a discount for it. So your current pledge is too high, please switch to the four-book level and reduce your pledge (or apply the extra money to some extra add-on). Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

Thanks, but I think I'll stick where I am for now. It looks like it's 9 dollars more expensive at the new pledge option than picking two books then adding $70. (Complete GM for $95 + $70 for two more hardcovers totals $165 as opposed to $174 for the new four book package.)

Matthew Finch wrote:

You're exactly right in your reading of how to get a full set of hardcovers for only 2 rules-editions: there is no pre-programmed option for that. The way to do it is to pledge for 2 hardcovers, then add the cost of 2 more hardcovers to your pledge amount ($70 total extra). What happens is that when the Backer Kit arrives in your email after the Kickstarter, it will ask you to apply your "extra" $70, and you'll be able to select the two hardcovers at that time.

Thanks for the info. I've now pledged. It might be a good idea to put the cost of adding additional hardbacks on to the Kickstarter page, to save on answering questions like mine.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Looking at the Kickstarter, there are two hardcover books. Each of those hardcovers comes in three different rules versions. The softcovers seem to be rules neutral.

So if I wanted to get the both hardcovers for just two rules sets, I'd need to either pick an option for four hardcovers, which doesn't seem to exist at this point, or pick an option for two hardcovers and then add on two more, which isn't listed as an option under the addons list.

Am I just misreading and not seeing something that should be obvious to everyone, or is there an option missing from the Kickstarter?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

More of a double give from the server. ;-)
I see the odd title for you too, so it's a bug anyone can see, but it doesn't affect all Legends subscribers.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

For some reason, my titles as I see them on Firefox are Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Pathfinder Legends Subscriber Subscriber.

There seems to be something up with the last one, the 'Pathfinder Pathfinder Legends Subscriber Subscriber'. The new Legends subscriber tag shows normally for other subscribers I've seen post, so it seems an oddity worth mentioning.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Well, I got my downloads and shipment OK from Order 3689722, but for some reason I only got shipped the Paizo exclusive version from my Deluxe Comics subscription. I don't seem to have been billed for the missing ones though. Could they please be added to my sidecart for next time?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Thanks for restarting everything.

Today though, it still tried to authorize the cancelled card which I'd thought I'd gotten rid of from my account. Hopefully my new update to payment method sticks this time.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Well kudos to my bank. I've already got my replacement card and after about three tries I think I've got my account here to accept it as my new payment method.

Can my subscriptions please be restarted now?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Many thanks. With any luck it'll be less than a week, and I'd be really surprised if it was more than two before I can restart things.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Can my subscriptions please be put on a temporary suspension? My credit card details were potentially compromised and I was forced to cancel my card. As soon as I receive a replacement and once again have the means to make a payment I'll restart them.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

It does now. Thanks and ordered.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Just over two days to go on this, and the Mythic stretch goal's been reached. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next one will be.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

There should be a line at the bottom of your Authorization email saying that there's an unlisted item as a surprise. Sara Marie spilled the beans that it's actually the promo cards in the June Subscription thread.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

This should work:

Please just list your address as the USA if possible so it does not try to charge that, since the kickstarter has started I can't change it. I have a ticked into to kickstarter for them to change it but i expect the kickstarter will be over before then.

AFAIK, you could create a second PDF only tier, this one without the shipping charge error. Mark it as being the one with the error fixed and it should be good to go for international backers.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Congrats on funding. Now onwards to that adventure please. :-)

Kobo sells the epub format. DRM is dependent on the publisher's choice. They use Adobe Digital Editions when DRM is being used.

Kindle doesn't necessarily have DRM encumbered downloads, or at least books from Baen and Tor are advertised on the Kindle store as being without DRM at the publisher's request.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Thank you. If there's an issue with the May shipment I'll check back in on it.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

That mess with the card game subscription where the add-on deck was for sale at a con while subscribers were stuck waiting a month for another shipment. Understandable since it was the big launch, but what got me mad at the time was how nobody at Paizo seemed to be willing to admit that there were any problems for quite a while.

The lack of information about what's happening with digital versions of Tales now (prices, where to buy etc...) is what brought the cards mess back to my mind, because it seemed back then that Paizo was being equally evasive about there being any sort of a problem at all with the card subscriptions way back then.

As I said at the time, people are a lot more willing to accept a problem if they're kept informed. Not keeping people informed makes them think there's something that needs to be hidden. And they expect the worst.

The circumstances with the card subscription, including a big product launch and late messed up shipments were a lot more understandable than the current circumstances with the Tales from a customer viewpoint I admit, but it still was a case of potential customers put before existing subscribers.

It also does bother me that Paizo seems to put off releasing bad news when it'd be a lot more customer friendly to get the information out and let people know what's happening. We still don't have any information about ebook versions of the Tales except what people have found digging for preorders on the major ebook sites. And that bothers me. What's so bad about what's happening that we can't even be told what sites will be have them for sale or given an estimated price? We don't even know for sure if Paizo will be selling their own ebooks yet.

I will be frank: one of several primary goals for the Pathfinder Tales line is to attract fiction-loving non-gamers to the world of Pathfinder. And we believe that Tor has the ability to advance that goal farther than we ever could on our own.

Without partnering with Tor, the future of the line would likely not rise above "more of the same." And sure, that's great. But if Tor is able to expand the readership, we might be able to do more and bigger and better things in the future. We might be able to mix things up and do something special outside of the bimonthly paperback novel run. We might be able to attract authors that we can't get right now. I can't make any promises, of course, but we wouldn't be doing this if we didn't think it gave the line a better future than it would have otherwise.

Well, I hope you're right, and it all works out for Paizo. I'm not exactly happy with the changes, but you've got to do what you think is best for Paizo's long term prospects and I'm not going to be holding any grudges over this. But I can't help remembering a certain company a few years back that went to try to increase their market without considering their current customers. Someone else did listen, and now that first company has only the second largest share of their market, instead of the largest, which those customer friendly folks who'd been listening took away from them.

I'd hate to see Paizo forget that particular lesson, but this is the second time in the last year or so that the subscribers who've been supporting Paizo all along have been put behind potential new customers. It concerns me a little that this might be a continuing trend.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Actually Amazon is showing the price of the digital version of Lord of Runes as $10.05. That's more than the old subscription cost for both book and digital, which was $8.49 It's a hit to the pocket any way you look at it.

Effectively, the cost for a similar service to the old subscription terms just went up by 142% for anyone who wants both. I think there is valid cause for complaint there.

To buy just the ebook is not a huge increase for someone who just used the digital version from the subscription anyway, but it's something I find ... nigglingly irritating to be honest. I'm not actually angry, and I'm prepared to pay the new price for the digital version, though not to buy the physical, but I'm still far from a happy camper with the changes.

It may (or may not, I'm in no position to judge) be a good choice for Paizo as a company and for growing their market, but for the existing subscribers who made the Tales line profitable in the first place, it's ... not so good a deal.

Good to know!

I can only find 13 Paizo Charter Superscribers: Costa, David Cornwell, Dragnmoon, Gary Sarver, gbonehead, Kata. the ....., Nikosandros, M. Sean Molley, Paul Ryan, Russ Taylor, theprofessor, Wizened and Zaister. I'm certain there's others, and it's really hard to tell about the Paizo folks.

I'll be dropping off that list. The new Tales subscription isn't cost-effective for me so I've asked for mine to be cancelled.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

I've concluded that I can't justify the cost of the subscription under the new terms and asked for mine to be cancelled. I usually read the digital formats rather than the physical one, so to get both would now effectively double the cost to me.

I'll stick with buying the digital releases whenever I remember to.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

I would like to cancel after Forge of Ashes, but before receiving Lord of Runes if at all possible. Otherwise please cancel immediately.

I primarily read the digital versions, and cannot justify paying for the subscription plus shipping to receive only the physical book, then having to pay another $10.05 (as per the Amazon preorder page for Lord of Runes) to obtain the format I actually use most of the time.

I can see that the original subscription terms might have been too good to be indefinitely sustainable, but the new ones are too poor to justify the subscription at all given my preference for a digital format.

Lord of Runes is showing on Amazon as a $10.05 preorder, to be released on June 2.

Effectively, not including international shipping, the price for getting a similar amount of product to the old subscription just doubled, with at least a few weeks extra delay before the digital version is available compared to previously.

I'm finding it very hard to see any positives at all from an existing customer's viewpoint.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

The order has arrived, complete, including the Strategy Guide.
Hopefully I'll figure out how I could go through that email line by line, twice, and fail to see the line saying the Strategy Guide was included, when that's what I was specifically looking for.

Thanks for checking, and sorry for putting you to the trouble because I'm apparently selectively blind. Doh.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

I quite liked Adrian Ripburger, of the Lucasarts game Full Throttle.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

I received the resent email for this one, but it's not including the RPG Strategy Guide. Could it please be kicked out of my sidecart into the subscription order?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

I didn't get an email notification for my order, but other than that, it does seem to have been generated properly. Order 3459332 if anyone decides to go digging in the system to see what happened to the notification.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

So far, from an existing customer's POV, I'm seeing a lot of downsides, for no compensating upsides.

1) Dealing with Tor, who didn't bother reply to my email when I was trying to find out where an international customer could actually buy their ebooks. Admittedly they've made their books a lot more available to international customers since then, but I've still got a sour taste in my mouth.

2) New book size which doesn't match the previous ones, or even fit on the same shelf.

3) The possibility of losing the digital portion of my subscription, for no change in price.

OK, the first point is purely personal, and is regarding another company's poor service which isn't Paizo's fault, the second is also more a personal peeve rather than anything actually damaging to me, but losing the ebook from the physical subscription would be a real cut to service for the same money.

I dunno whether I'd cancel over it from the information we've been given at this point, but I have to admit I wouldn't be a happy customer either.

Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber

Tor? I hope they handle customer service for Paizo better than when I tried to find out something from them. They didn't bother to respond to email when I was trying to find out where I could buy ebooks published by them. :-(

Unless something has changed since the last release, yes.

I gave up about book 9 when I concluded there was more padding and filler than actual plot, and decided to give up until Jordan actually brought it to a conclusion. Now that the series is complete, I still haven't gotten around to seeing how it finished.
