This latest power move is all my friends and I have talked about.
This is amazing. Fantastic.
I've never been more proud to be on the side of the underdog.

What a lovely offer! I am telling everyone in my local Organized Play Group about it!

Hmm

PS Will there be a similar offer for Starfinder fans? I'd love to encourage more people to play Starfinder. It's my favorite game!

This and the ORC got me to finally get my DnD group into Pathfinder. Thank you!

Picked my free copy of Lost Omens World Guide up before this thread showed up in general as I happened to be looking at the blogs when it popped up there. Can't go wrong with free!

This is not a Starfinder sale at this time, but the Holiday23 code will still get you 15% off if you have not used it yet.

We will probably run our current 5e campaign to completion (as we already have all the books we need, so why not use them?), but I don't think I will have too much trouble persuading my group to go for PF2e rather than OneD&D when we get to our next campaign, as they would be having to get new books either way.

The Pathfinder books being sold now, are they from the latest printing? 4th printing, I believe. I have several copies of the 1st printing hardcover and pocket, but I am thinking that I may want at least one print copy with all of the current errata. I know that the PDF's update, but I do like a good physical copy. Thanks for any response.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

The hardcover* is the 4th printing and just started shipping this past Monday.

I'm not sure which printing the pocket edition is.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Way to go me, not reading this and ordering the special editions, which the code doesn't apply to. Holiday23 did work tho.

I'm here to support what you are doing with ORC. Thank you <3

I was able to take advantage of the code, but missed the part about adding the 'Lost Omens' PDF to my cart. Still very grateful for the discount, though! :)

It looks like you can get it separately just fine.

Oh? I'll give that a go - thanks!

Thank you Paizo. Will check it out.

And now I've picked up your book and that PDF. I already had the starter set so consider me invested. Wizard's non-pology followed by an FAQ that contradicted everything they claimed they were going back on just seals it all the more. I hope for Paizo's success, but not quite like Wizards. I don't want Paizo to dominate tabletop, I want a myriad of game systems with competitive popularity. Maybe we can get that to happen if your license does what you've promised. I was worried before (and still am, no telling what Hasbro might do), but I'm far more hopeful today.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Had hoped to make the switch, but realized it is on print copies only. Sadly can't afford the shipping on the 6 books I was going to get. If the sale expands to include PDFs, then I will happily jump in.

Weird -- if I reply, it looks okay until I submit.

But hey, eldritch entities from the Dark Tapestry have to hug too . . . .

Doesn't work for the Foundry or PDF editions of Beginner's Box, but I don't care, the 15% HOLIDAY23 code still works.

Going to be running 3 separate groups through the BB at least, then after that I'm not sure how much time I have IRL to follow up with Abomination Vaults, but Paizo, if you're going to financially commit to creating an ORC you won't own for our sake, we as DMs will do our part to help cushion the blow for yours.

Guys, I had faith in you, and you nat 20'd this! The time of the #ORC is at hand! I didn't play PF2E … but I'm gonna be playing it now! I ordered before the discount—beginner box and … my books have gotta be PDFs.

That said, I kinda want a Starfinder box as well, probably this summer. But if you add it to the coupon code, it'll be now in January. I'm putting my money where my mouth is. WotC had their chance. Will need to find people who can tell me which books I'll need beyond that to play both, but I'm sure I'll find that easily enough.

Do the hardcover books also include access to the PDF? It is hard to tell with the web site whether I would need to buy both PDF and hardcover.

Thanks!

They are separate products so you have to buy them both.

In the future, if you subscribe to a Paizo product line, you can get a free PDF along with your subscription item. But once a product is published, the PDF is a separate purchase.

25% off. Ha! Nice, I see what you did there. looking forward to the wonderful things made under ORC.

This is an amazing deal! 25% off is an outstanding response to the Tyrany of a Dragon that we see invading our TTRPG community. Thank you Paizo! I am looking forward to the greatness of ORC!

The Orcs of Belkzen refusing to obey the dusty Wizard that is Tar-Baphon who wants the whole world to bend the knee from his abode near the coast was darn prophetic


Good to has some free Lost Omens World Guide stuff out there for PF2e, among other things, Paizo- even for a limited time. ;)

The ONE D and D VTT is looking more and more like an online videogame with potential for microtransactions. My prediction is that this HASBRO VTT will attract peeps from the World of Warcraft online game seeking to be labelled as table top players. Whilst, the true table top players will migrate more and more to PAIZO and third party games :-)

I remember playing the adventure card game in Iraq with a friend to pass the time. Looks like I'll be picking up the Core book now to support the ORC.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Been a long time since I been back here, but all the news and the deal got me to finally bite on the 2nd Ed Core Book.

I had the PDF already from the Ukraine Humble Bundle, but such a hefty tome is easier to read in physical form, so order placed. Now the waiting game.

What other books are recommended for a "lite table" of Pathfinder 2e?


2 people marked this as a favorite.

You may not be able to see through the shadows in the hood... but I am grinning.

Downloaded the free PDF and will be buying a hardcopy PF2e, already had the PDF. The % by which you discounted it made me chuckle.

Can't wait to see ORC go live and the things it will generate.

Thank you Paizo!

What about StarFinder? Will there be a similar offer for StarFinder Players?

I support Paizo, but I'm a sci fi gamer and need to buy a few more SF books and adventure Paths.

Thank you and if there isn't, can you take that into consideration.

I was going to buy the starter and the core rules $74.98 but delivery to the UK is $76. Would buy locally but it seems the UK has sold out haha. Go ORC.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Well, got some of the books now I need to either start a group…after I read the rules…or find one. We are done with WOTC. Oh and thanks for the free world background. I will use it for the home brew campaign as a model to outline mine. Reading on Russia cause a certain war. Well, age of troubles, Ivan the terrible and the secret police just scream fantasy setting.

Before I decide to buy the pocket edition of the core 2E rule book, can anyone tell me if it will be the latest update? If it is not, I would rather wait until they DO update it. Thank you

I believe the latest is the 4th printing.

I got the world guide and the PDF of the Core rules. International shipping is too much or I would have got a printed copy too.

The PF2 Core Rulebook Pocket Edition (and Silver Crusade pin) I've ordered cannot be delivered soon enough lol. Starfinder is next. I'm looking forward to my first Pathfinder game. I didn't know how hardcore the Paizo (and 3pp) systems and players are. Man, I've been missing out. I also appreciate the warm welcome from this community. j/s

So if someone bought books at their LFGS, would it still be possible to get the pdf discount on platforms like Foundry and Roll20 with some form of receipt? MTG and D&D kinda keep their lights on, so I felt it a good idea to support them in these trying times. Cheers, Brian

Unfortunately, purchasing the print edition of a Paizo product does not get you any discounts on the PDF version of that product, even if you buy it through the Paizo store here on this site.

There are two ways to get PDFs at a discount
1) Subscribe to that product line here (Rulebooks, Lost Omen Setting, Adventure Paths, Maps, etc).
If you are a subscriber at the time the item is released, you will get a free PDF of the item once it has shipped to you.

2) Watch for sales here on the Paizo site. Often there are sales codes for some of the products near PaizoCon, GenCon and around the holidays.

You can use the same code on another transaction. I got the pdf at first and then went back to make a purchase with 25% off.

Whoever reads this, you have about an hour and fifteen minutes left.

Argh!

Not only did my dead computer make me miss the big controversy over the OGL and its potential replacements, but I also missed out on the Lost Omens World Guide free PDF. :(

I played DnD for years and I would like to say I fell in love pathfinder 4 years ago it was in a certain place that would not let hard cover books in. I joined a few guys that were playing pathfinder and they had soft covered books and fun learning the system and now with 2e out im going to try to to GM my own .....keep up the great work paizo..
