Pathfinder Player Companion is an invaluable resource for Pathfinder Roleplaying Game players and Game Masters. Each monthly 32-page Pathfinder Player Companion contains several player-focused articles exploring the volume’s theme as well as short articles with innovative new rules for all types of characters, as well as traits to better anchor the player to the campaign.

With your ongoing Pathfinder Player Companion subscription, we'll automatically send you every new volume as it's released, charging your credit card automatically as we ship each volume. You only need to sign up once, and never need to worry about renewal notices or missed volumes!

After we ship your subscriber copy, you'lll be able to download a PDF of that volume—a $8.99 value—for FREE! (Note that you only get free PDFs for releases shipped as part of your subscription; you do not get free PDFs when purchasing older volumes that are not sent as subscriber copies.)

If you have other Paizo subscriptions, you can combine them to save money on shipping.

When you start an ongoing subscription, any existing preorders for products covered by your subscription are automatically cancelled (or have their quantity reduced by one if you've preordered more than one of an item).

On an entirely unrelated topic, where's the Titanic Games Subscription?
Which, if you're a Pathfinder Superscriber, Planet Stories Subscriber, and Titanic Games Subscriber, nets you the coveted Paizo Deluxe Superscriber Tag!!!!!

Ha!

Nah! Then you qualify for the "my Paizo bill is larger than my mortage payment" tag.

Which is why I've begun building a new house out of cardboard from paizo shipping envelopes & boxes!

We'll be shipping the first Pathfinder Companion for free along with subscriber copies of Pathfinder 13. To get further volumes, you'll need a Pathfinder Companion subscription.

And don't worry—if you sign up now, and you would be getting a free copy of the first volume, you won't be sent (or charged for) an additional copy from the subscription.

Howdy ! I am just glancing through the " Elves of Golarion" and on the front inside jacket is an error . According to the BETA playtest version; Elves have a +2 to Intelligence as well as the regular Ability modifiers

Pathfinder products (APs, Companions, Chronicles, Modules) are not switching to the PfRPG until August of next year, when it is finished. Until then they are staying 3.5, as indicated by the "OGL" in the product's description.


Question .....

If I subscribe today I know I'll get free PDFs for future companions when they ship.
As a subscriber, if I order past issues, do I also get the free PDF?

Nope—subscriber benefits are not retroactive.


Thanks Vic. Guess I'd best get the PDFs while PDFLove is still available.

Bummer.... I'm assuming You'll have them all at Origins? If so, I'll just pick them up there assuming we can get our Pathfinder Advantage discounts at the con like last year.

Thanks.

We're not having a booth at Origins this year. However, I do expect that you will be able to add items like these to your subscription shipments *very* soon.

Are these products going to be available in print form to be sold at your Friendly Local Game Store?


Yes, they're available through hobby distributors such as Alliance and ACD.


Will all of the new releases from here on out be PFRPG related? I have to assume since most of this stuff relates to other products that are only PFRPG now.

This happened in March sometime? Lots of stuff happened at a time I just had no ability to track.

Now I need to figure out how to catch up with this before stuff goes out of print. Is there a sub+previous releases option?

Kevin:

Every Companion product from Qadira onward will use the Pathfinder RPG Core Rules as it default. So right now, Qadira and Cheliax are the two PFRGP Companions.

Need a clarification, because I want to start this. I already have the Chelix sourcebook. Do I need to wait until the Dwarf sourcebook is released before starting my subscription, or starting it prior to it's release, for my subscription to start with the Dwarf sourcebook? As soon as I have an answer, I'll know when to start my subscription.

When you start a subscription, you are given a choice between starting with the current product or the next product. So you could subscribe now and choose to begin your subscription with Dwarves.

I had hoped that the dwarven god of war in Pathfinder would have the dwarven waraxe as his weapon, but again the dwarven god of war had just a battleaxe.
The dwarven war axe was snubbed in 3.5 and now again in PFRPG it seems a perfect fit, IMHO.


LOL Mmmm so much drool worthy eye candy to choose from, unfortunately, it is beginning to seem like PF too much of a cash sink.Would love to subscribe, but I think 5 or 6 recurring monthly subscription fees is getting a bit ridiculous. First, I would be much happier to see two or three compendiums come out a year with a compilation of all the new source material in a nice hard back like the core books. I think it will be very frustrating for my players that they don't all have the same access to the same materials, unless of course they are ensconced at my house.

I have a question: If I subscribe to the Companions, and one comes up that I have no interest in, will there be an 'opt-out'? By that, I mean a "skip this one" clause, rather than having to unsubscribe and resubscribe.

But I *can* unsubscribe at any time if the next one up seems undesirable, right?

Correct, it's a month to month subscription and you can cancel anytime up until your next volume ships basically.

Thank you - then I'll have to very seriously consider signing up, since the next 4 in line are all products I've noted independently as stuff I want.


So the Goblins book comes out in July, and Faiths of Corruption in Oct. Is there to be no book for Aug and Sept??

I want one for Sept for my birthday!!

Technically, the Goblins book is the August release. All of the August releases are shipping at the end of July though so that they are shipped in time for GenCon.

Also, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, I believe the Player Companion line is bi-monthly (generally speaking). So, with Goblins in August (late July) and FoC in October, it would make sense that there's no Companion release for September.

Hope you have a nice birthday regardless!

I have some suggestions for the Player Companion line...

I would like to see some of the new classes from Ultimate Magic, Ultimate Combat, and Advanced Players Giude get their own Companion volumes.

Gunslingers of Golarion, Inquisitors of Golarion, etc. We can get new feats, archtypes, abilities, spells, magic items, traits, write up on how the class fits in Golarion etc.

Eventually I would like to see even some of the base classes get this treatment. Druids, Bards, Sorcerers, etc.

I wouldn't mind if some of the new rules systems presented in various AP's were compiled and expanded upon. "Caravan's of Golarion" etc.

A nice expanded treatment of the animal companion, follower, henchman, hireling rules. Maybe with some new material, sample companions and hirelings, etc. "Henchman of Golarion" ?

Player primers for major cities, Absalom, Korvosa, Sandpoint, etc. Showing what a local would know, and what a relatively new comer might know. I know some of these have big books on them, but a short player guide would be nice.


I'm flagging my own post for the spam of a review posted for this product which I cannot flag.
