Paizo Advantage and Subscription Updates

Thursday, June 27, 2019

It’s rare for Paizo to make changes to its subscription program, but with the release of Pathfinder Second Edition on the horizon, we’re taking this opportunity to make some improvements. Here’s what will happen:

Paizo Advantage: The 15% discount remains, but how you get it changes. You need to subscribe to 4 product lines to become eligible, but you can mix and match both Pathfinder and Starfinder subscriptions. Your discount starts after your 4th subscription has been charged to your account.

Current Pathfinder Adventure Path subscribers keep their 15% discount. If you ever cancel your subscription, you need to meet the new criteria for the Paizo Advantage to get the discount.

It’s not too late! If you subscribe to the Pathfinder Adventure Path before July 3, and receive Pathfinder AP #144 as part of your subscription, you’ll lock in the 15% Paizo Advantage discount!

New—Society Bonus: If you have 4 subscriptions, you get your choice of either the Pathfinder Society Scenarios or the Starfinder Society Scenarios for free. If you have 6 subscriptions, you get both.

Free PDFs: No change; these remain part of the subscription program.

Subscription Changes: The following subscriptions are changing to better reflect their contents under Second Edition:

  • Lost Omens (formerly Pathfinder Campaign Setting) is your home for the Golarion line, including the Lost Omens World Guide, Lost Omens Character Guide, and future hardcover releases. The Lost Omens subscription offers players and GMs the same kind of content found in the previous Campaign Setting line, but its larger, less frequent hardcover books examine their topics in even greater depth.
  • Pathfinder Adventure (formerly Pathfinder Modules) contains all the great standalone adventures you’re looking for. The first release is the Fall of Plaguestone, and we expect this line to have 2–3 releases each year.
  • Pathfinder Accessories is a new line containing products like the Combat Pad, Condition Cards, GM Screen, Critical Hit Deck, Critical Fumble Deck, and more.
  • Player Companion is cancelled. You’ll find that material in the Lost Omens line now. The last book for this line was Chronicle of Legends.

Thanks again for supporting Paizo through your subscriptions to the Pathfinder, Starfinder, and Adventure Card Game product lines!

The "My Subscription" page looks nice and updated now. My Pathfinder Society and Starfinder Society subs are now marked as "complimentary" (thanks!).

The only thing that's still to change, I guess, is the Pathfinder Player Companion sub, which is still listed among the active subscriptions and shows that the next volume to ship will be the Second Darkness Player Guide, which actually was the first book in that product line.

My PFS Subscription is complimentary and upcoming PFS item has no cost, but SFS subscription is not complimentary and upcoming SFS items have discounted prices. Also, newly available Starfinder Society Scenario #1–99: The Scoured Stars Invasion showing no discount. Perhaps this is just a timing issue. But the mechanics of it seem...clear.


Not seeing a complimentary PFS subscription on my account despite having Paizo Advantage.

My Subscriptions page says this: "Your 6 active subscriptions qualify you to receive two FREE digital Organized Play subscriptions. You will receive the subscription issues as they release." but it doesn't actually list PFS and SFS anywhere. Do I need to sign up for those and then they'll be free, or will I get them automatically at this point?

Don't sign up for the Organized Play subscriptions, but do let them know if you don't show as having complementary PFS and SFS subscriptions after your July subscription order ships. It is the shipments that trigger them.

Oh -- If you signed up for the Campaign Setting subscription and opted to have it start with the Lost Omens World Guide rather than the Druma book, that subscription won't count until the August subscription shipment, as you would not have anything for that subscription shipping in July.

When will we be notified of having access to the PFS materials if we have the requisite number of subscriptions?


Pathfinder Pawns, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

So I got my shipping notice, and it does list this: "Paizo Advantage (Tier 2) New Paizo Advantage mix-and-match for 6 subscriptions, grants 15% off suggested retail price, excluding non-Paizo PDFs. Also complimentary scenarios for both PFS and SFS."

But there are no PFS or SFS scenarios added to my downloads. Were they supposed to be?

The next batch of PFS and SFS scenarios is scheduled to be sent out around the end of this month, just before Gen Con. You should see them listed on your "My Subscriptions" page.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook Subscriber

4 subscriptions are a lot. Grandfathered in now (mostly because I was too lazy to cancel on time), but I do suspend regularly when an AP I don't like is in play.

I guess this means that soon enough I will basically never be eligible for a discount, since I have NEVER had more than 3 subscriptions at once.

Ah, now I see why PFS was complimentary but SFS was not. I am now getting ACG society scenarios complimentarily. Not what I was expecting, but not inaccurate.
