Has Paizo ever considered selling empty Adventure Path boxes?

Nothing too fancy, just a simple box with some artwork on it. Sized to fit a single campaign.

I, for one, would be willing to pay for them.


Ooo. Me too!

I like.

That would indeed be cool. So +1 from this collector.


This is a neat idea. It would be nice if it could hold all 6 of the paperbacks for an adventure along with maybe the pawns and room for a notebook and dice.


I'm currently using empty cereal boxes for storing APs.

They work, but I'd be very happy to have an attractive slipcase sized to hold a full AP. It would make storing them on shelves a lot nicer. Perhaps $8-$10 for aftermarket, or a $5/month add-on for subscribers?

Its been talked about before.. See here

I'd love this kind of thing too (with room for the map folio, in my case). I daresay the sticking point is what people think they're worth vs what they actually cost to produce.

What if they got sold flat but with creases for folding at home.

It looks like Vic answered that in the thread Cpt_kirstov linked. Shipping them flat doesn't save on shipping, and they'd likely get damaged in the process.

Sigh. I'll just have to keep looking for thematically appropriate cereal boxes for my APs:

Carrion Crown - Count Chocula

Skull and Shackles - Cap'n Crunch

Jade Regent - a Cheerios box because I have so far failed to acquire any Japanese cereal boxes.

Shattered Star - I'm leaning towards Lucky Charms.

To be fair, the linked thread is 4ish years old and things might've changed since then. Of course, if they had we'd probably have heard about it..

I'm paying ~$120 for each path. Cheaping out on the slipcase and demanding it for 5-7 dollars (which seems to be the major hurdle Vic was talking about in 2008) isn't what I was thinking.

Maybe costs could be kept reasonable by making one case instead of a campaign specific one for each AP. Then again it's Paizo so I'm sure they'd rather go big or go home on any product they make, which means production costs might still not be feasible.

Awesome idea though.

To be honest, I'd happily pay $20-25 for a slip case for each adventure path. I'm probably in the minority here, though.


I would also buy this to have some protection for my paths. If it accomodate 6 parts + map folio it would be perfect.

The french language licensee for Pathfinder products makes slip covers for APs. They are a bit pricey (just under €20), but they look quite nice.
Have a look.

Any chance paizo might be able to stock these?

Oh man.

Can Paizo get some of those in their store then?

It's 20% cheaper if you order the first five APs as a group.

Hugely expensive shipping, though. The above bundle + shipping works out to $145.22 USD, or about $30 per nice shiny box. :(

Awesome!

After Christmas I'll get my brother-in-law (raised in France & Switzerland) to sort out an order for me.

This may be the first Pathfinder perk to being European!

Well, never one to be defeated (and a bit impulsive), I decided to make my own.

So I jumped on Amazon, ordered myself some acid-free binding boards and hinging tape, and had a go at it.

The first attempt was a disaster. Let's just leave it at that. But my second was much better.

I took some pics for posterity (and petty messageboard self-aggrandizement).
Ready for the second attempt
Measured and cut (blood-free!)
Tape attached
Almost done
Voila!

Not pretty, but much more stable on my book shelf. Now I just need 10 more of these puppies.


Nice, chinchbug! Are you planning on adding art to the box, or are you just going to write the AP name on and call it good?

Chinchbug, very cool. It would be cool if you could include the measurements for us to do the same thing hehe :)
Adding art would make it cool too :)
Very very well done!! :)

Now that's pretty sweet. Something to keep in mind with regard to measurements would be that Rise of the Runelords and Second Darkness both had alternate versions of their first installments. So, assuming that a box would contain the adventure path installments only, one would need measurements for 6- and 7-part adventure paths.

Here's a Sketchup image with my measurements and notes on how I derived those measurements. I tend to go overboard on these things and I have miserable memory, so I added some popout reminders on how to put it together.

Oh, and I think I have an idea of how I'll handle the artwork. I'll post it if it turns out half-way decent.

The Plans


That is awesome. I may have to try it. Great job!

Could someone tell me what format the french books use? If they use A4, the Paizo books in letter won't fit.

Liz or Vic? Is there any chance it would be possible to order these through paizo?

Sovereign Court

Covers are identical, I'm guessing that the books are the same.

Just translated text and shuffling a few images around to make it fit.

The runelords case also holds to player's guide and map-pack.

Can we get pics?

I have APs #1, 3 and 5 in French, and I can tell you with 100% certainty that the format is exactly the same as the original one.

Thanks. I guess I'll order the boxes once they are back in stock. Or hope that Ulisses, our local publisher, starts to sell them.


If I'm not mistaken, they aren't selling yet. Black Book Edition's website mentions "Précommande" (preorder).

By the way, you might want to know that this editor's release dates are very unreliable.
