Great Line

*****

Everytime I think that I have every rule book I really want for a complete game system, Paizo comes up with another one that I suddenly realize I need. They know their gamers well, and anticipate their desires. Books come with plenty of packaging to insure they are not damage in delivery, and the free PDF is very handy for those reliant on Ipads and the such at the table. Two thumbs up!


Service with great potential, but it has its flaws

**( )( )( )

The Pathfinder RPG Ongoing Subscription is basically a way for you to pre-order upcoming Pathfinder products. Once you sign up, you will automatically receive new products as they're released, being billed automatically for each one. As a bonus, you get free PDFs of rulebooks you buy from the subscription.

I started (and ended) my subscription with the Advanced Race Guide. I was very happy with the book, speed of delivery, and the free PDF.

However, I have mixed feelings about the Ongoing Subscription service.

THE GOOD:
1. PDF is nice. You get the option of downloading it as a single file or individual files for each chapter. Each page is watermarked with your account information (just a warning for you pirates out there), but they're barely noticeable. You also get the PDF a few days before the book officially releases. Pretty nice.

2. You can cancel anytime. You can get one product and then immediately cancel with no penalties, essentially using the service as a way to pre-order products.

3. You save a few bucks. The free PDF saves you a few bucks. Not too much with the shipping, but it's still a discount.

THE BAD:
1. The subscription has little unnecessary items. I canceled my subscription because the next item is the Character Folio. Honestly, no one wants to pay 10 bucks plus shipping and handling for a FOLDER. Paizo really should make the service only have rulebooks. If they did that, I just might have given into temptation to keep my subscription for the August release of Ultimate Equipment.

2. Canceling is a hassle. You have to manually contact customer service to cancel your subscription. Not cool, especially when there's a risk of being forced to pay for something you don't want.

3. Shipping and handling is expensive. It's twice the price of Amazon (plus they have offers for free shipping). Even with the free PDF, you're only saving a few bucks.

Overall, if you don't mind the cancelling hassles, I'd recommend it if something you want is up next. However, the lame trinkets and the cancellation inconveniences really hinder Ongoing Subscription from being a stellar service. Otherwise, this would be something all regular Pathfinder players should have.


Pathfinder RPG Ongoing Subscription Melds Convenience With Content

****( )

I just received my first delivery of my Pathfinder Role Playing Game Ongoing Subscription. I chose the Ultimate Combat book as my initial product.
While I was a little apprehensive to sign up for the Ongoing Subscription, for something like hardcover books, and game aids, my uncertainties were alleviated as I got to looking at all of the details I could insert into my campaigns by having a couple of cool prestige classes, like the Gunslinger and the Ninja, plus variant rules such as Armor as Damage Resistance, and Called Shots, not to mention the additional skills, feats and weapons that are available for use.
The price of each shipment might seem prohibitive at first, and it does vary from product to product, so that is something to keep in mind if you are on a tight budget, but all that said, having a book delivered to your door, and having a free pdf of that book available from Paizo.com is a significant savings in itself, if you consider travel and time as factors. The pdf files are invaluable to me as a GM, as I can cut and paste sections of whatever books I need right into a word document for ease in reference when I am running a game, and not have to lookup the information in session.
One thing that I did learn is that if there is an upcoming product that you do not want from the ongoing subscription, you may stop it at any time, and start it back up again to receive the next product.
Overall, I give the Pathfinder RPG Ongoing Subscription 4 out of 5 stars. Check it out today!
