What is the status on Pathfinder: Munchkin?
Except that my Subs have been screwy for the last week or so, way before they actually started the spawning process.
First, I had an October Shipment, a November Shipment and a December Shipment listed.
Fighter used to be a nice 2 level dip for any class wanting to see some melee, but now with Armour Mastery it makes sense to go one more if you want to use heavier armour types. I agree that Level 4 is nice for Weapon Specialisation, but only if your Feat selection will allow it and mine is pretty tight. :)
I really like Archetypes as I am a big fan of being able to customise a character to suit a specific charactisation. I know that it also makes it much easier for people to build overpowered machines of death and destruction, unable to be touched my mortal man, but for someone like me who enjoys creating weird class/race combinations, having that extra little bit of versatility is a fun addition. I honestly don't believe that any of my characters are overpowered for their customisation, as I build "Characters", not Deathbots... :)
Level 3 lets me move in Medium Armour without Penalty (with the bonus of getting me another free Feat). And Level 13 of Paladin gets me another use of Smite Evil. :)
Oh hallelujah! It's a Father's Day miracle! My product is shipping...
I look forward to the worst Father's Day ever this Sunday when my kids have nothing to give me for another 2 weeks... :/
Now it's just another 12 hour wait until I can actually read through my .pdfs, since I'm at work for another 8 hours and the kids/dinner/bedtime routine...
Also, it's not "hogwash" as you so eloquently put it. I've had the scenario you put forward happen to me and it didn't go down as you describe it.
I had my Authorisation. That Authorisation dropped off and the funds were available again. My wife spent some of said funds. Paizo then tried to charge my card and it declined until I had paid enough to cover the cost of my Paizo order. And this card has gone into negatives before from other things being taken out above what was available, so it's not a factor of the account not being able to be overdrawn.
I agree with Ayrphish about part of your statement being correct. Paizo's Customer Service is A+ and they've always been nothing but helpful whenever I've had an issue. So their unhelpfulness in this instance may just simply be the fact that there's nothing more they can do to help you at this point and it's just a waiting game.
That being said, I fully agree with the first part of your statement. I went into my FLGS on Monday and they have multiple copies Mythic sitting on their shelf. And this is a store that is almost always quite late getting their Pathfinder deliveries (I'm in a non-capital city in Australia). So when somewhere like that can have their copies already, why is it that a week later (and 2 weeks since shipping began) I still have yet to receive a shipping notice. I understand that it's a once a year deal, but treating GenCon goers above your subscribers is, in my opinion, poor form. I also understand that because I added additional items to my order that it would be pushed back slightly, but pushed back until a week or more past it's release date is again, poor form.
Vic has said that they try to get the product into subscriber hands as soon as possible, but it's not always going to be by release date. Well that's fine for subscribers from the USA, when postage is a couple of days at most. But for those of us who live overseas, this means that all I see in my Facebook Feeds are pictures of people holding their new Pathfinder books, or saying how awesome this or that is, when I won't have mine in hand for weeks (and usually don't even have my .pdfs for almost a week after I start seeing people with their hard copies).
I still to this day don't understand two thing about the way Paizo ships their products:
And to top it all off, the main reason that I'm not impressed with this month's subscription fulfillment is that The Adventure Card Game and one of the additional books I ordered were supposed to be Father's Day gifts for me from my children.
It's nice to know that so many people already have their Subs for this month and that all those people at GenCon can actually buy their copies of this month's products before I even get a shipping confirmation. I mean, I was under the impression that one of the benefits of Subscribing was that I could at least have access to my .pdfs before non-subscribers could get to read it. As it is, with no confirmation for at least another 2 days that means that I won't have my physical products until (at the bare minimum) the first week of September. :/

Those of you who think we're charging too much for shipping, I invite you to head over to the USPS postage calculator or the UPS calculator and do the math yourself.
Oh yeah, I don't think you're charging too much if that's how I came across. I was just saying that because of the weight it's super expensive to ship here, I know it's got nothing to do with you guys. :)
Even though the international shipping is abhorrently expensive because it's so heavy, I still went ahead and Subscribed. It means I'm guaranteed the Promo cards and I don't have to wait until my FLGS can get it in (they're a bit hit and miss with releases due to their distributor). I already have a fairly hefty Sub package this month, so the excess postage was somewhat mitigated by my already large and heavy order. And I was always gonna Subscribe after the Base Set anyway... :)
To date I have backed 89 KS Projects since Novemeber 2011.
So I have 16 projects that I backed over a year ago that I still don't have products for yet. Some are nearing completion, while others still have a way to go. Am I upset that some are taking longer than expected? A little. Do I care, as long as I gt my product in the end? No.
* All Months I give are the month the KS ended, not the expected release date. So some of those may appear to be longer than they actually are (take StSS for example: it's projected completion was August 2012, but it is one of the February 2012 ones since my spreadsheet only tallies when I backed them, not when hey're due to me).
I agree that the Pathfinder Huge Black was too small, but I like the Gargantuan Blue. You're comparing it to the D&D Black though and while it might be a touch smaller, the proportions are about the same. Of course the D&D Blue is bigger, but D&D Blues are more predatory muscle, whereas the Pathfinder Blues are sleek and sexy. The Pathfinder Greens are more analogous to the D&D Blues and I expect the Pathfinder Gargantuan Green to be a bit bulkier when it comes out.
My friend wants me to ask that if gets greater magic fang permancy on him would amulet of mighty fists also give nire to hit / dmg ?
Yessss... Damn you GoG!!!
I'm currently playing a Dual Pistol wielding Vanquisher.
And as a consequence my lack of sleep caused me to actually physically fall asleep at Roleplaying last night... O.o
Yeah, my 6am starts at work don't mesh well with my nocturnal nature. Subsequently I tend to subsist on 3-6 hours of sleep a night. Once a week I will extend this out a bit when my body just looks at me in disgust and won't let me go on anymore...

heh heh heh... :P
Hey I don't care if it's more night. As long as there are more hours I'm all good...
Oh Almighty Set.
Can I please have more hours in the day? Just one or two would be enough, I'm not greedy.
I wanted it mainly for Tekken 6 and Resident Evil 5. Then Resident Evil 6 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
I never bothered to upgrade to a PS3 'cause by the time I could afford one they were no longer backwards compatible. So now I still just play my (original) PS2. My 5 year old doesn't seem to mind old skool Transformers or Tony Hawk or Sonic and my seven year old likes her Sing Star. :)

I know that Lost Girl isn't really a top notch show. But somehow I just can't stop watching it. It got it's hooks into me and now won't let go. Plus Kenzi is da bomb! :P

Yeah, in Season 1 Episode 5 "Never Let Me Go", Doctor Vanessa (Artie's "girlfriend" from Warehouse 13) Guest Stars. That was the only link shown, but it makes sense given that both Pete and Steve have strange abilities (in Warehouse 13), which can now more easily be explained as Alpha abilities.
Honestly, although I started watching Warehouse 13 first and didn't even find out about Eureka until Alphas had started (and devoured the first 4 seasons of Eureka in under 6 months once I did find it), I'd have to rank the three shows as Alphas, Eureka then Warehouse 13.

Have you tried Defiance yet? It's not unbelievably brilliant, but it's a pretty cool watch. And Doc Yewell is super awesome! :D
Have you also tried Warehouse 13 and Alphas?Both are set in the same shared world as Eureka. Alphas was canceled after two seasons (which was a real shame because it was an amazing show) and this current season will be Warehouse 13's last.
Yay! I got my shipping confirmation for my $200 subscription order this morning while at work (6.20am, 11 hrs ago). So I've had to know that I have the .pdfs and not be able to read them all day!
Gonna download them now and read them all after the kids are in bed tonight. :)
