Sorry, I didn't intend to imply you couldn't talk about politics in here. What I meant was that it isn't the place for people to come in and try to debate policies and speak in a manner that feels like its invalidating the feelings and worries of LGBT folks and their allies in this thread; which is what my read of the situation was when I was trying to get context for flagged posts. Please feel free to email community if you have additional concerns about this.
Please keep in mind that while Paizo Inc is based in Washington State in the USA, Pathfinder and other Paizo products are sold globally. We have people in our community and visitors from all over the world and our goal is to keep paizo.com and the Paizo Community a welcoming and friendly environment.
Folks, upon review of the product we are taking it down and will be in contact with the publisher. While we appreciate the issue being brought to our attention so it can be corrected, if you come across a product you feel violates our compatibility license or may otherwise contain offensive or derogatory language, please let us know via email@example.com (cc firstname.lastname@example.org).
I know sometimes its hard to understand why a word that's been in our cultural lexicon for what seems like forever with no protestation might be a slur or problematic or sometimes we need to avoid saying, but when the group of people that the word gets applied to says that yes, its an ethnic or racial slur, then yes, we need to stop using it.
The wording of the options for off-schedule subscriptions are still a little clunky and I'm hoping to clarify the language and UI a bit. I think one of those things is that if the options are disabled because its your only subscription, then we should have ASAP as the option that appears selected or neither option selected.
Politics is a topic that frequently has some very passionate posting from many different perspectives. I know that there are very strong opinions regarding the recent elections, however, our forums need to keep the conversation civil. In addition to treating one another with respect, keep political threads to a minimum (we do not need to continuously spawn new political threads), and if you feel someone is baiting or trying to incite arguments, flag it and move on. I am locking this thread.

I am locking this thread, "Trump And The Possible End of Western Civilization" is a baiting title. If you want to debate if this presidency means "Western Civilization is over" take it to PM or take it off paizo.com.

Should I be worried about my order if I got my shipping Email last Thursday but still have no tracking info on Tuesday?
Nope, no need to worry yet. The warehouse is going strong getting orders shipped and out the door. Our estimated shipping window for Nov. Subs is November 14th (since Friday is a postal holiday we will be closed).

Unfortunately how singles sales are handled is not something I am able to change, though I will most certainly pass this feedback along. This new system of singles sales was a very large factor in why we brought back the ability to ship licensed subscriptions outside of the regular Paizo monthly new release shipping, so that folks who would want to choose to ship them earlier can.
Since the reintroduction of the Off-Schedule Subscription Shipping Options feature, I am trying to determine the best way to keep the monthly shipping thread from getting out of hand. I'm going to try splitting up stickied release threads based on release dates. If you have any comments or questions or suggestions, please let us know!
If you have chosen for your Battles Subscription to "Ship items from this subscription as they arrive in our warehouse." :
Battles Subscription Release in November
If you have both monthly and off-schedule subscriptions, you can select what to do with any non-subscription items you put into your sidecart.
As we experienced in January, singles will be on sale starting November 23rd and will be available for a limited time. I know how important it is to many of you to get your Battles case as soon as possible so that you can figure out which singles you may want to order more of. To help facilitate getting your order to you as quickly as possible, check over your My Subscriptions page your payment method, shipping options and address to ensure everything is set how you want it. Once we generate orders, check over your confirmation email and let us know as soon as possible if there is an issue.
Removed a handful of posts and replies. Black Lives Matter is a serious topic and we are not comfortable with posts satirizing it.
Shaming other posters over their spelling and grammar is not welcome on paizo.com. Tangents into personal opinions on spelling and spell checking in forum posts would be best served by moving that conversation to a new thread.
I removed a post. Folks, new product announcements are exciting times. Passions can run high. Remember people's preferences vary and opinions on what makes good game content vary. We understand that some people will be very happy with this book and others will want to give it a pass. We expect this product hits a home run with many of you. Keep this product discussion thread respectful. If you'd like to debate the more philosophical questions of what this experiment might mean for Paizo Inc or the Pathfinder Roleplaying game, a new thread dedicated to those musings might be a better place than this specific product discussion thread (if you chose to do that, feel free to post a link to the thread in here for visibility).
Approximately when will tickets go on sale?
We are hoping to get our Guests of Honor squared away soon and shortly thereafter put badges on sale with an announcement.
My personal goal is to have them go up in the month of November 2016.
Hope that helps!
ashley: pie bar?! this sounds like a fantastic place.
sharaya: oh. pie. god.
katina: Our father, who tart in heaven
sharaya: thy filling yum
sharaya: thy bake be done?
cosmo: On the fork as it is in my mouth.
katina: Give us this day our a la mode
ashley: And forgive us our carbohydrates
cosmo: As we forgive those who mince meat against us.
katina: but deliver us from Marie Callendars
I understand that this is a person who stirred up a lot of drama and trouble in his lifetime, particularly for role-players and the RPG industry. At this time we do not feel it is necessary to have a thread on our website memorializing his death, as the conversation is likely to dissolve into a real negative, dark place.
That being said, I want to be clear that we do not want to stifle people sharing how Dark Dungeons and Chick Tracks affected them. If you are moved to create a new thread discussing your feelings and experiences related to this, you are welcome to, but keep celebrations of his death out of it.
I apologize for the confusion folks. It's kind of amazing what a missing click can do. Should be all patched up now. If anyone purchased it in the last couple hours while that was available, your Digital Asset was suspended and it will be unsuspended after we begin shipping to subscribers (estimated October 31st).
I removed some posts and the replies to them. Its ok to address that you don't understand what a poster may be asking, but it is not ok to insult what you perceive their intelligence to be. We have a very diverse set of gamers that play Pathfinder, from all walks of life and from all levels of English language reading and writing skills. It is not ok to make personal insults on our messageboards.
In trying to review this thread it feels like it has become kind of a pile-on. I'm going to go ahead and lock it with a quote I think might be relevant.
"The rules in this book are here to help you breathe life into your characters and the world they explore. While they are designed to make your game easy and exciting, you might find that some of them do not suit the style of play that your gaming group enjoys. Remember that these rules are yours. You can change them to fit your needs. Most Game Masters have a number of “house rules” that they use in their games. The Game Master and players should always discuss any rules changes to make sure that everyone understands how the game will be played. Although the Game Master is the final arbiter of the rules, the Pathfinder RPG is a shared experience, and all of the players should contribute their thoughts when the rules are in doubt." pg 9, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook.

Actually, since Paizo is in Seattle, they're closed for Indegenous Peoples' Day.
(Technically we are not *in* Seattle, but yes, Indigenous People's Day):Here's an article from 2014 on this subject:

For subscribers with subscriptions to our licensed product lines, we have brought back the ability to ship those subscriptions as soon as possible if they release off of the Paizo release schedule.
If you have both monthly and off-schedule subscriptions, you can select what to do with any non-subscription items you put into your sidecart as well.
To access these features, visit your My Subscriptions page.
While the concept of shipping off-schedule subscriptions is one we have done previously, bringing this feature back has resulted in new code. If you have any issues with your subscriptions, contact customer service as soon as possible so we can resolve the issue.
While licensed products may release off-schedule from Paizo's monthly release, it is not always the case. Choosing the option to ship as soon as possible simply means that if a product is releasing outside of our release schedule we will ship it to you as soon as possible.
Our first license product to be shipping off of the Paizo monthly release will be the upcoming Comics volume Worldscape #1. Releasing in store October 19th. More information on the shipping updates for that will be coming soon!
Let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns about this change. If you have questions about an individual order, please email, call or start a new customer service thread.

Here is the link to the deluxe edition:
We're sending out emails about it now to relevant groups.
For those who have preordered the Curse of the Crimson Throne hardcover, will we get the opportunity to upgrade our order to the deluxe version? There's only a few days left before order spawning.
We're hoping to have the product page up for the Deluxe CotCT limited edition later this afternoon. If you already have the hardcover edition on preorder, you will want to go ahead and preorder the Limited Edition ASAP and then request customer service cancel the first order. Putting something like "Upgrade/Cancel Curse of the Crimson Throne" in the subject line would be helpful so we can make sure those are all cancelled before we create subscription orders and auth on Thursday.
