Incidentally, just how is the amount of starting wealth arrived at? Is there some sort of arcane formula for figuring it out or is just a random amount determined at the time of class creation?
If there is a formula, it is hidden in the Wizards or Paizo vaults somewhere.
From a reverse-engineering perspective, it just needs to be enough to buy minimal starting equipment. That number is (by necessity) higher for combat classes that buy armor and weapons than it is for non-combat classes.

Is there an intention of a new printing of this, made available here or through the Kobold store? And if so, is there a way to be notified when such a printing happens?
It is currently on backorder. We'll have more in October, which the kobolds will ship first (and Paizo not long after that).
The elven kingdom sourcebook has never gotten off the ground, sadly. There have been at least 2 attempts but it hasn't clicked yet.
Depending on how much kitbashing you want to do, some ghoul adventures or concepts to look at include:
Kingdom of the Ghouls (Dungeon Magazine #70, 2e)
I like those reviews from out in the wild! This book has been quite a hit since Gen Con.
Anyone playing the Hell's Vengeance or other evil adventure paths should definitely check out the section on evil-aligned campaigns, by none other than Robert J. Schwalb, the malevolent mind behind Shadow of the Demon Lord.

Will these new paths be collected and printed in a volume two?
Hmmmmm. Well, the New Paths series has certainly been popular, and some of the classes are now staples in a lot of campaigns. Others, like the shaman, have since been adopted or at least their names used for Paizo base classes.
So, maybe revisiting them is worth considering. Right now, we're just seeing how the sales go, what questions people have, and generally whether we have enough in the tank for a run big enough to qualify as "Volume 2." Even if not, I think Marc has done some great design here.
Lessee, we shipped Wrath of the River King for Pathfinder, so the next adventure will be the sequel to Cat & Mouse. Likely to ship in October.
And the 5th Edition updates are happening for those using that system.
Plus a major expansion to the villains, secret societies, and NPCs is looking good. That one includes details of several of the evil kingdoms and groups.
In addition, we're working on a free series on the blog that will visit sites in the East. Not in great detail, but a great journey all the same.

Yes, Paizo should have additional books in stock in a few weeks. Though in some ways this is an odd place to buy a 5th Edition D&D title, I'm happy to see Paizo continuing to support the whole range of the hobby, from Star Wars to Cthulhu to D&D and FATE.
Sounds like fun! Will there be a Pathfinder version?
We've certainly converted 3.5 and 4e material to Pathfinder in the past (Halls of the Mountain King, Wrath of the River King, Courts of the Shadow Fey, to name three examples).
So, no reason not to do the same here, if sales/interest seems to justify it.
I understand picking up the Southlands Bestiary takes care of a lot of them, but what other books/pdfs would I need to pick up?
You don't need all of these, but just for completeness, here are the other sources available at Paizo.
Roughly in order of decreasing size/monster-osity (the last two in particular are more setting/adventure books than bestiaries):
Smilodan, that's a quick read and a keen eye. Some responses just these.
1. Correct, there is. It's deliberate, though I realize it's not to everyone's taste, and it is different than the MM on this point. Some of it is just our naturally cruel designers and developers. Agree that poisoned condition could get more of a workout in a couple places, though math-wise it's more-or-less a -4 penalty.
Yes, "processing" means it has likely already been shipped. The shipper eventually goes through and hits "completed" on all those, but when you are sending out 2,000 packages or so...
You should see it in the next few days. A few have hit Massachusetts today, so they are definitely trickling into the NE.
Marv and Smilodan, thanks for noting corrections! We'll roll them into the revised PDF for September release.
If you find other things or have a list of the spelling/other issues, feel free to send them to Koboldpress@gmail.com with a "TOB Typos" subject or similar. We do want to update and improve this book over time.
