Quick question: are the non-novel epubs included with a subscription?
No just the novels.

Thanks DM.


After having my toes in the water for too long, I've finally decided to jump in. Along with the sub for new stuff, are there some MUST read Tales that I should pick up too?

Personal favorites as of now are Prince of Wolves (for the great characters and setting) and Plague of Shadows (for the wonderful implementation of a classic D&D party feel, and just flat out wonderful writing), but I have enjoyed them all thus far. Winter Witch was a nice little travelogue through Varisia, The Lands of the Linnorm Kings, and Irisen, and The Worldwound Gambit was a rip-roaring, fast-paced classic heist story with a demonic twist.

Just getting into Master of Devils now, and it is great fun so far!

Looks like I need to sub, then. I'll begin grabbing those other books as I can as well. Thanks!

I just got Prince of Wolves, The Worldwound Gambit, and Master of Devils for my birthday. Can't wait to get started them. Finally, I get a chance to start on the Pathfinder Tales line.

Question: Is it possible to get a subscription of JUST the PDFs and eBooks? I don't really want the paperbacks, but I'd like the automatic purchase.

Thoughts?

This question is actually answered in our FAQ.

The answer is that we do not currently have any plans for offering PDF/eBook only subscriptions, nor do we currently foresee this being an option in the future. In the post linked in the FAQ entry Vic spells out why in a detailed manner, but the upshot is: The potential benefits to do not outweigh the seriousness of the potential risks .

Thanks,
cos

Shadow Lodge

Thanks Cosmos,

I assumed what Vic mentions in general doesn't really correspond to trade paperbacks. I would think the costs equations would be different between the normal rulebooks print runs and mass market trade paperbacks (only $3 different in price between book and epub). It could even be automated as part of Apple's Newsstand ... I'd pay a premium for the privilege (over the standard epub cost), but understand that there might not be an audience for it.

EDIT: If they actually showed up automatically in Newsstand I'd pay the normal subscription price, but with none of the dead trees!

You get both the ePub and PDF with the subscription to Pathfinder Tales.

That is good news indeed. I didn't sign up for the Tales subscription right from the start....so today I bought the ebook version of Prince of Wolves.

I'm proud to say that Calibre quickly and accurately converts the epub file to mobi... which can be read on my Kindle. I am LOVIN the Kindle. And I can't wait for more Pathfinder Tales books. I've got the Pathfinder Tales Collection already set up. :D

Hate to pester people, but I *really* need to figure out how to convert epub to something that works with Kindle. Also I have a Mac, if that makes a difference.

Hopefully sometime today.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Software called Calibre can be used to convert the novels to Kindle format. There's a link here.

Silver Crusade

Yucale: install calibre. it'll ask you what sort of ereader you have. Find it in the list and select it. Then when you connect it to your computer calibre will recognize it and show you what items are on the device and not. When you try to send an EPUB to your Kindle, it'll automatically convert it (maybe it'll ask you first; I don't know, I have an EPUB-capable reader). Either way, you don't need to worry about doing anything manually besides what I just outlined. It's pretty easy.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Just curious since here in the near future I will own a Kindle Fire. Will Calibre copy the epub file over directly? Will there be any goofs in the wording (like misspells or other weird wording)? Any other problems I might encounter.

(should have read the Calibre link better, pretty much answers my question. I thought it was link to the actual software, ha ha)

Would love to see a novel e-subscription thou. Once I get the KF, the dead tree version will just be a paperweight for me. I could cancel the sub & get the digital version but right now I'd rather support the line by being a subscriber.

I use it regularly. Never a problem. Even marks the chapters correctly. Calibre is a fantastic program. :)


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

So far we have had the Forgotten Realms authors Dave Gross (whose stories I continue to love) and Elaine Cunningham (who I hope to eventually see more of). Are there any other FR authors that we might see novels from in the near future (i.e. Erik Scott de Bie, Steven Schend, Ed Greenwood [though I know he is very busy], Richard Lee Byers, or Troy Denning [though he is probably very busy with Star Wars)?

I have to say that one of the coolest things for me recently happened while I was out of town.

I got my ship email, pulled out my iPhone, went to my downloads page and was able to download City of the Fallen Sky directly into iBooks.

Very, very cool. I love having books in both physical and electronic versions ... while I vastly prefer reading a physical book, being able to pull up iBooks when I'm stuck somewhere unexpectedly and to pick up where I left off is an amazing ability.

i wish Paizo will print stats for the characters in the novels hehehe

i'd subscribe to the whole line hehehe

I don't know if I need stats for the characters although, that would be a good juicy bit. I would not mind if the "Glossary" was removed and replaced by some juicy bits. Stats of a character or an item, etc. I don't think that a lot of people are looking stuff up in the glossary while reading.

Liberty's Edge

I actually find the glossary quite handy and use it occasionally.

Being new to PathfinderRPG and being an avid fantasy reader I would like to know the chronology in the Pathfinder novels (if there is one).
Or are there some trilogies in there?

Thanks in advance.

Hope that helps.


From Pathfinder Tales issue 27 (Lord of Runes from Dave Gross) onward the books will be available on kindle.

Grand Lodge

Really happy about the Tor partnership and opening up to Kindle in particular. I've only been reading fiction on my Kindle lately and having the novels handy for impulse buying will work out great!!!


Will there be some kind of a PF:Tales eBook Subscription?


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

Agreed,

I use the epubs and let the books be shelf ornaments. Will we still have a way to get good epubs cheaply? Does the increased discount cover the price discrepancy?

I'll pay whatever, you guys rock, but I'm now a bit unsettled.


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I am at the moment mildly unsettled by this, but I haven't decided whether I should be upset, or it's just a gut "OMG, Paizo changed something!" :-)

That depends on if you have Pathfinder Advantage.

If you're a Pathfinder AP subscriber, you were paying $8.50 before and will be paying $10.50 now.

If you didn't have an AP sub, you were paying $9.99 and will be paying $10.50 now. That's not as much of a jump.

Sovereign Court

As of the release of Pathfinder Tales: Lord of Runes the digital versions of Pathfinder Tales novels will no longer be included in the Pathfinder Tales subscription.

But will it be available at all from Paizo? what about and "electronic" tales subscription option?

So the answer to Brandon's question is that we are paying about 24% more to get a larger format ("trade" vs. "mass-market") and losing the electronic version. What will the pricing be for the kindle version?

I suspect I would be in favor of a "paper or kindle" choice for the sub if Paizo can't see a way to continue to give us both in one sub.

Looks like they just put a bullet in the head of one of my favorite things about the subscription. Marvelous.

Are the other subscriptions going to follow suit?

Not only that, but I'm currently paying $8.50 for both the electronic and physical copies of the book, and soon I'll be paying $10.50 for just the physical copy of the book.

Paizo might see this as an improvement, but I sure as heck do not :(

I doubt that. There is no reason for Paizo to license their game books to another party, and I don't think there is another party that is qualified anyway.

But Tor has a long track record as a fiction publisher, so they make sense for the novels.

I have no insight into Pathfinder Tales sales, but I do remember Planet Stories being cancelled going on indefinite hiatus. It's possible that this is a move to make sure the line survives, not merely to increase its success.

Paizo Employee Community & Digital Content Director

Just to answer a few of these questions:

No, we won't be putting together a digital subscription. No, we won't be moving other product lines to this sort of distribution/removing the digital copies from the subscriptions from other lines. Tor is going to be managing all of the digital distribution starting with Lord of Runes, which means more formats and different online outlets. However, we will be making these more obviously linked from our individual product pages on paizo.com so you don't have to hunt around for them.

Exactly like this, actually.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Please make sure that Kindle versions are also available internationally. Not all Kindle books that are available on amazon.com are also available international Amazon sites. As an example, you can easily buy a Kindle version of Timothy Zahn's "Heir to the Empire" on amazon.com, but you can't buy it on amazon.de. And you can't buy ebooks from amazon.com with an international Amazon account, so if I want that book on my Kindle, I'm out of luck. Please make sure that doesn't happen with Paizo books.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Once Tor is handling distribution, they'll manage electronic distribution the same way they do for any other Tor title. I don't know the details of that, but I believe it means that if you can buy any of their other titles through your preferred Amazon site, you should be able to buy their Tales titles.

Let's hope this works out. Thanks, Vic.

Hello Chris, what happened to the Dave Gross "Lord of Runes" novel???

It is listed as unavailable and does not show up to "start your suscription with this"... ;-(

I think I know. Unfortunately it can't be fixed from PaizoCon, but I will get it corrected as soon as we're back on Tuesday.

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'm not all that pleased with the move to Tor either. As a D. Weber reader I've watched tor and Baen for a while. Tor's electronic distribution is really screwy. Baen's is pretty straight forward, and much more in tune with how paizo distributes. I find Tor's prices harder to stomach as well.

Oh well, good luck to the tales line and those who stay with it.
