Glad you think so! It will be a guide to herbs and herbalism and will include the Apothecary NPC class and some new options for the Alchemist.

Andoran

Cool - I'll check it out when it's released!

Completely unrelated, but I sent you an e-mail recently and wanted to confirm you received it :)

Any idea how big this is going to be?

This is going to be a shorter book, on par with our recent release, Inkantations, which means it will be around 50 pages.


Because of some unforeseen circumstances that are beyond our control, we are having to push the release of Apothecary's Handbook back to August. April will still see Inkantations, Tome of Monsters (only slightly late) & Deus ex Historica.

I know things happened to push this and the other upcoming products back. But any word on when we might see this?

This one has been delayed rather significantly, with several other products taking priority. It will be released down the road.

We are working on it. I know everyone is waiting on it (and a couple others). They are coming.

I too am anxious for this. This will be a PDF only, right? The higher price makes me think that isn't the case.

Many of the 4WFG books are in print. This one doesn't mention PDF, so my guess is thats the price for the print book but i could be wrong.


When finally released it will be in print and PDF. The PDF version will most likely be released before the print, as has been our tendency lately.

Cool! I might preorder the print version at my FLGS. I gotta show them that 3rd party stuff can sell!


That would be very cool, and we would appreciate it!

Short version, sometime this year. I talk more about the products we are behind on in this post: http://paizo.com/forums/dmtz4yvj?4WFG-Update-on-status-of-previously-announ ced#1

can you tell me if there will be enough herbal and alchemical healing means added to pull of a "House" style healing focus alchemist? (attitude included ;)?


How I wish this one would finally come out...

You're not the only one, I have been wanting a book like this for mundane herbalism and alchemy for... well for as long as I can remember honestly.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Damn you guys! I was excited that this was finally released :(


We realize folks are waiting on this one. They are waiting on others, too. We are getting caught up, but 2011 wasn't kind to us as far as production went, and it pushed everything way back. We've got the GOLD Guide, Exploding Aces original game system, and Tyranny & Manipulation (PFRPG) to go ahead of Apothecary's Handbook. But we are getting there.

By the way, anyone that has pre-ordered this book and wants a refund should talk to Paizo. We don't see any money for pre-orders.

As long as it comes out I don't want my money back. Good to know that it will eventually come out.

It will. Two things happened in 2011 - we bit off more than we could chew with a big production schedule and we had a nightmare of a time finding a partner to help with printing costs (Studio 2 Publishing eventually stepped in to help us out with that!). Those two things combined ground most everything to a halt for much of 2011. That's the main reason I didn't do a 2012 product schedule, nor will I do one for 2013. Until we get caught up, we won't commit to any new print products.

Still hoping this see's the light of day soon.


I am with you Dark Mistress, I wonder who this will come out of the sale.


Please see this thread.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Mark! Any news on this one?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Sorry for getting your hopes up, D_M.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

And another hope that this will see the light of day


In 2011, we were actively working on this book, with an intended release date later that year. But, by the end of 2011 we were so far behind on so many projects it became clear that wasn't happening.

By 2012, I was entertaining thoughts of selling 4 Winds Fantasy Gaming, and as should be known by now, I did sell 4WFG to Purple Duck Games in February 2013.

In the process of selling the company, work on this product was completely abandoned. However, this was one of several unfinished products that Purple Duck Games acquired when they took over, and Mark Gedak has expressed interest in seeing it completed.

To that end, work has resumed on it, but unless Mark gives me a specific deadline, I can't offer any specifics on when it will be finished.


At this point, I will not give a specific deadline because there are still a number of other projects that are still being finished up.
