NOTE: I was part of the Kickstarter they had and the Cobblestone rolls do NOT look like the picture. It more looks like a cow pattern or just not like the cobble stone.
Unless of course he corrected the issue!
The cobble stone 8.5" x 11" paper look great though, the rolls though were horrible. See the kickstarter for others with the same opinion.
I see my subscriptions have combined to all ship out in March. I think this is an accident but if it is I would like a request to have this done anyways if I could.
If a "hold" needed to be added for my subscriptions for this to happen that is what I request.
Still in the midst of moving in financial terms.
Plus wife's work actually has us in the Port Angles area now for six weeks so I wouldn't be at the new address I provided anyways.
I appreciate everything that could be done
Just to throw it in for FYI information. Most cross country USPS mail is thrown on to either UPS or FedEx anyways airplanes then thrown onto a belt to be sorted automatically by at a USPS facility by either a contractor or said employee of that company.
This occurs for the larger distances, and oversea shipments. If a 5X it was on a UPS plan if FX FedEx plane. Sometimes it won't have a sticker on it like Priority Mail boxes, multiple reasons why, they like the standard sizes of these boxes is its easier for their automatic sorting system to scan and a number of the boxes can fit in a "bag" they have. Not also their sort system is not as effortless as UPS or FedEx as well yet. Requires more human intervention which a lot of times causes the issues.
I was just considering taking the pawn sheets and gluing a sheet of carboard to one side with a finger sized hole through which to pop the pawns out. That should give them some stability and make them easily removable still.
That's what I was going to do as well.
That way the original box can be used and if they are kept in numerical order on the sheet it would be easy finding the pawns you need.
I can have my subscriptions unsuspended.
I'll have my address updated around noon though so if something goes out immediately try not to update until then...
I only see two things being sent having only three subscriptions...since the Jan stuff hasn't gone out yet.
Any chance it could wait until the Jan shipment to combine them for shipping?
I just saw it on iTunes.
I loved the movie.
Suggestion of blowing off his hand....then the guys Bruce killed would still be looking for young looper since old looper didn't kill them all.
One major sticky point at the end.
If young looper killed himself to prevent old looper from shooting the kid, it also destroys entire timeline up to this point.
So kid and mommy in un destroyed house, little ice cream type truck with gold wouldn't be present in the corn fields.
Maybe kid started the whole looping thing in first place when his mom was killed and when she wasn't there to prevent him from turning bad.
Still young looper and truck of gold wouldn't be present as well as young looper body to save the kid since old looper never occurred. Young looper would probably already been dead if his backstory didn't happen as he told it with out crime syndicate to recruit him.
One could argue these circles for ever. Back to butterfly effect.
Still really enjoyed the movie though. I know long dead thread.
Sara Marie/ Cos,
I played with trying to fix the latch some. Don't have all my tools really; in middle of move and had already packed up my miniature gaming tools, so was not able to give a full amount of needed time.
Did take even more photos though and it seems the far side of latch that is "broken" doesn't even have a hole. Kind of looks indented but no hole at all. Like the manufacture just didn't drill all the way.
I am going to pack it up and have to work on it after the move. Which actually might be well into Feburary before I can play with it again.
Unless the number of copies are going quickly I am hoping this can wait.
At the very least if it is deemed needed perhaps it could be a swap out in person since ill be living down that way. A two to three hour drive is nothing to me. Plus with me doing home school for son I could time it with a visit to some museums in Seattle.
First off in person it is even more impressive and love everything about it. Art work is great as well.
I am glad the styrofoam corners were in the outer box. These corners were destroyed (the other hard covers you sent me they were not. In fact using the un- destroyed styrofoam corners from previous shipments for my furniture and rolls of plastic wrap. Most recent being Rappan Athruk) so it tells me the box went through some rough handling.
(Funny thing is you all used UPS Innovations to go to my USPS box and it came to Alaska via Fed Ex from the label on the outer box. FX is of course FedEx but if it was 5X it would of meant it flew up on UPS.)
Ok to the point of this post The latch. Even before I twisted the latch to open it (its scratched where you twist but thats nothing major) you can see only one side of the locking arm was attached at the hinge from the side to the top of book.
I am trying to keep my hobbie/miniature builder side from just immediately trying to fix it.
I think I can take a small hammer and a little pin to try to push the little needle pin back through but not 100% sure if the needle in the hinge part goes all the through from the one side through the center hinge to the other side.
Do you all know? A expensive piece for me to experiment with so holding off until get feedback from you all to see if you guys know more about the hinge.
From feedback on this site this seems to be the weak point on this awesome of awesome product. (Part of me wish you guys did something similar for every adventure path bundle, but know it might take away from the subscriptions so probably wouldn't happen.)
I don't want to mess it up THEN not able to return it for a in damaged piece. Have pictures if needed.

I am a little surprised the cost of the PDF's go up as well if it was due to the "cost of paper and printing".
You guys must subsidize the cost of the printed product from the PDF's a little. Otherwise to me that dosn't make since with the stated reason of increasing the price of the products.
Unless it is just to keep the PDF prices in line with your other products for PDF price justification on the other lines....being what they are.
It is pretty small increase though.
EDIT: I suppose it could also be you just don't want to make the PDF only option to attractive over your printed prouct line which if did happen you wouldn't be able to do the printed product for many reason that Vic has pointed out on the numerous inquires on PDF subscriptions.
My two cents not really needed but getting thrown in...
While there have been some things I didn't want to see happen by Paizo like increasing the subscriptions of the Module line and Companion Line to a 12 month subscription because I was concerned about the error rate increasing, I still believe they are a great company.
The product they have put out has raised the quality of the ENTIRE RPG industry, I personally believe. Granted there have been some errors but that stuff will happen. Well they keep at trying not to make those mistakes? Yes I believe they will. (I just didn't want them to increase by throwing out more issues when they seemed they coulnd't keep up with what they were putting out, which is maybe the reason for the price increase on some of the items, but once again that is a personal opinion.)
If they deliver a broken or defective product they make good on it and always have. Heck I have even seen them make good on a product that was purchased at another location than their own store but think those are VERY rare occasions. I am not concerned if I receve a product that is defective that they wouldn't make good on it. I STRONGLY recommend anyone else that they shouldn't worry about that as well.
The price increases I noticed the other day and haven't seen any real dicussion on it either (don't frequent the forum as much as I use to) but I do believ, or want to belive they are using it to make there product better and not line there pockets. Perhaps by getting more editors to help with the work load, or different packaging material to help with delivery of products. While it sucks the prices are going up it was bound to happen. At least it is not a GREAT increase.
I am really looking froward to this Deluxe edition and glad my wife conviced me to go ahead and purchase it.
I am moving to Portland, Oregon and will be leaving Dec. 26th taking the Alaska Marine Highway ferry system down to Billingham, WA then driving the rest of the way.
I unfortuantly do not have a forwarding address yet as you have to show your ID to the Post Office within three days of registering for one.
What I am hoping to be able to do is "suspend" or "Put on hold" my subscriptions starting with the December one since it probably wouldn't reach me before I actually leave if it is not shipping until Dec 16th or so. (As of this moment it is only an Adventure Path sceduled for Dec. Although I was thinking about adding on a subscription or two since they are doing northern "lands" but thought that would be irresposible knowing I would need to put it on hold.)
Then possibly combine Dec and January subscriptions when I get the new address lined up at least a day or two after the 4th of January when I arrive at my new home.
We are renting a hotel room/lodge room out in Stevenson, WA for the first couple of months to see if we don't mind the drive from Portland. So don't even have a physical address (prefer a PO for shipments anyways) to give you.
I appreciate it your time and hope this will work.
I am waiting on the Holiday Card shipment which was shipped out before picking up a bunch of PDF's from you all (sent November 16th and package not here yet which is fairly normal as its only been 10 business days) but if my subscriptions are suspended does it affect any discounts I would normally get?
If so I'll wait to "suspend" the subscription until December 10th or so in the hopes that package has arrived by then to pick up a few of those PDF....

Yea second ask for another copy. With pictures. Pictures truly help with anything.
Just hope when my copy arrives I don't "roll a one".
Order 2345058 complete............
Now I just have to not think about it so I talk myself out of it again. Even though my wife is the one the re-talked me into it after I showed her the video of the case and book.
Grrr...of course I didn't have a problem doing the Frog God games Red Dragon level along with another two levels for wife and son. Well maybe that is why I am having a tough time with this order and deciding to keep it. :O)
Wife says I have a Kickstarter addiction. :O) 23 projects later....I might agree with her.
Cos/Liz or whom else it concerns,
I appreciate the answers over multiple times on this when I was inquiring earlier about the Runelords Limited edition book and PDF.
I did re-order and now sadly I am thinking I shouldn't pick it up. I am truly sorry for wasting your time.
Found out about a medical issue literally this morning and think with this unknown quantity and with my move to Portland and other comentiments with Frog God games that I will sadly have to pass on this book for now.
When I know for sure what all this truly means cost wise I'll just have to pick up the book (if still available) and the PDF separately.
Once again sorry to eat up your time ordering then canceling then ordering then canceling.
Oh the trips to Alaska won't be a regular thing once moved to Portland. Except there is one planned end of January.
After that it be wife doing it mostly.
In fact we get moved to Portland then three days later she has to go to Dear Lodge, Montana.
With talk of me taking care of my little one. Not sure if I am totally up with that. Feel like I would have to at least do something part time. We will see.
Goodreader works great for direct download then either using goodreader or "opening" in either ibooks or kindle app.
You also might want to clear your history, could just have so much information it is causing issues, it worked for my brother inlaw whenI suggested to clear history but no promises.
I personnaly use ibooks for all my PDF's from Paizo. Of course I use iTunes to trasfer everything wirelessly from my lap top.
A lot fo PDF rules for various games, Lock-n-Load rule books and their magazine, a bunch of Ospery New Vangaurd bokk PDF's I made from my personal library to use on my iPad.
I actually use both Goodreader (Besides to just download the files if on the road and not able to download it onto my laptop) to have one book opened and then switch between apps to another book if I think I need information quickly from both books.
@Pendagast- To open files into iBooks just click the "square/rectagle with arrow" at bottom of PDF next to the "lock" symbol. To make the tools "pop" up (you probably knew but just covering all bascics) tap the screen once.
Then a "select action" pops up- then you have an option to "send file as is" or "flatten annotations" pick one and then it gives you an option for iBooks or Kindle if you have that app installed.
I need to cancel my pre order for the book. Making a move to Portland from Alaska and it would be better to cancel it for now.
If still available later I'll pick it up.
EDIT: Also a refresher on the "hold" of subscriptions. Think the November shipment will be fine but think I need to place the Dec shipment on hold when it comes time.
I know where I'll be staying for the first couple of months but no mailing address yet.
Actually I don't have TV per say.. I do have Apple TV and am usually doing something the same time as I have something on in the back ground on my TV while I am on my computer or iPad.
How many "molds" of blocks does it take to make say a set of Dwarven Forge?
If you say it is a hobby then great! But if it is a hobby you shouldn't be judging others for wanting to purchase DF....he might have another hobby he wants to dedicate his time....
@Danielc- yea I posted that on Otherworld that I suspected this occurred for a lot of people.
In fact with my Reaper pledge, Sword and Wizardry pledge (three family members on the SW pledge), Numeria pledge, I am looking at dropping my collectors edition of Rune Lords coming out in November.
Also a move Dec 26th to Portland from Anchorage Alaska.
Yea I have to agree.
Dwarves Forge is a very fine product!!!
People always bring up the "I can make it for cheaper" but don't think they take into account how many man hours it takes.
I always say if it takes me four hours to make a piece similar to something that cost me $100 to buy ready made I'd probably go the pre made. That breaks down to $25 an hour if I were to make it my self.
Even then that's a little cheap. I like to think my time is worth more than $25 an hour. ;-)
Just means more time to play my games or spend with family.
The number of miniatures your getting if we reach all the goals....
10 Familiars-cat, crow, hawk, owl, toad, weasel Have been REACHED, still $4,000 to go for quasit, pseudo-dragon, brownie, imp, homonculus
48 Figures from the 4 different boxes- REACHED
Hireling Bonus Pack 3 Figures-REACHED
War Dogs 2 (1 Standing, 1 sitting)-REACHED
Dwarf Mercenary - $9,000 to go
4 Slain Adventurers - the gruesome remains of the Fighter, Cleric, Magic User and Thief from DAB1 $14,000 to go
Seated Magic-user model - a variant of the DA1 Magic-user, remodelled to drive the 'Adventurers' Cart from the $20k bonus. $19,000 to go.
Weapons & Equipment, Treasure Items, Adventurers' Campsite, Adventurers' Car REACHED
So TOTAL FIGURES at $280 Pledge level
Equal to 63 different packs if they were being sold like that, comes to $4.44 a figure size pack.
If you have seen Otherworld Miniatures before you know they are of HIGH quality and great poses and very little to no "flash".
Plus 4 Cases from Feldherr Cases US & Canada not sure if it is just foam in a box or one of their MINI Cases.
Not only do you get this large jump on this figure line from them but I am sure it will infuse any future release of miniatures for this line.

That is true. Had a bunch of minis at Gencon that didn't sell at all when just six months to a year ago similar one did sell for me quite well.
