I am kind of disappointed. This is the second time in a row that one of my orders has been delayed. I am hoping it was not because of the miniature in this order?
I am not sure why when I make orders for miniatures and such that they always get added to the side cart. I don't plan on it that way. Is there a check box I am missing somewhere? When I make an order I want it immediately. Not with a subscription shipment :(
Is there something holding this Order 3458672 up?
I have an order in the side cart AND a pending order that I wanted when I ordered it. Now I am seeing I do not even have subscription orders being shipped this month??
Order # 3456177 (One of which is the Xorn Miniature that I wanted (needed) for this weekend!!) Now I have to wait yet again for this to come and now I don't even truly need it unless I run the adventure again in a year or so :( I thought that placing this order on Mar 2nd would be MORE then enough time to get the miniature to me by this weekend. Apparently I was wrong. Though I can't for the life of me figure out why it is not here??? I have the money and such paid for!!
The Pending order I wanted when I placed it as well. :(
Can Mr Selinker or Mr Wertz care to do a video walk through playing "On the Horizon" for us "newer" players to Skull and Shackles. The ship seems to cause a lot of confusion especially the rules about anchored/docked and moving and commanding the ship. Also how does a "player" acquire more ships too. Playing through using the "On the Horizon" scenario I think would be a good one to do because it is a difficult one and it shows the complexity of Skulls and Shackles off quite well. :) It will also show off Guild play too well. :) And what to do at the end as far as rewards and "upgrading" the deck.
Would you mind?
Thank you either way!! :)
So you are saying that the store has to physically order it?? If so how do they do that?? Where??

Chris, for the retailers is Paizo still shipping out a free S&S Base set at all? I am only asking as I would like to mention this to my FLGS :)
Thank you! :)
Katina, It still shows the "Ants" on backorder. (For Order 3318773 ) I do not want ANYTHING to slow the order down and would rather pull the ants out for now and wait on them, then when they arrive ship the "Ants" then, and ship the rest of the order without the ants? Also is there any break I can get on shipping or something or even expedited service for the length of time I was waiting on the "pending" order of the Ants, Tentacles and Amiri?
(expedited as in shipping as quickly as possible like "Thursday? :D)
Thanks for anything you can do!! :)
I was hoping to take "one" of the items from Order 3123288 in my cart and then combine it with a pending order in my cart Order 3304558
The item I want out of the 3123288 order is "Pathfinder Battles—Shattered Star: Amiri, Human Barbarian" and then combine it with the 3304558 order so they ship together.
Leaving the back order Ants and Tentacles to stew until they arrive once again at Paizo. Even though the 3123288 order has been pending for months.
Hope this makes sense and I also hope it does not slow the order down any?
if they are not able to handle the situation or you have an issue with one of them... then speak to Mike Brock.
By coming here and speaking out to us is a good way to rant but it can also be a catalyst to a lot of issues in your area and can honestly hurt peoples feelings that you are speaking about. While no names were mentioned. It seems like it was pretty obvious who it was by a few postings. Being he was a new GM too... might mean he will not GM again because of your post and that would be a shame. I am not saying you are doing anything wrong but there are better ways.
I would hate to see a new GM stop GMing and or even stop playing because he/she is to ashamed to do so again from lack of confidence. The coordinator or local VC can mollify the situation immediately and hopefully with good results for all concerned :)
Again I am not accusing you of doing anything wrong. Just some advice going in to the future is all :)
Good Luck sir.
I can't see over saturation for a long time yet :)
I have personally reached the "no more rulebooks" stage with Pathfinder. Unchained will probably be my last. I have enough rules to last a long time. I will still continue buying the APs that look interesting but I do wonder if, between 5e and people feeling like they have enough Pathfinder rules, a downturn is inevitable.
To early to tell but I doubt that 5E will affect Pathfinder or Paizo all that much at the moment. I will still continue to support Pathfinder personally as will my wife.
I am mildly interested in 5E but not so much I am going to rush out and buy every single thing that they put out. I was bit hard by 4E and because of that and how WotC handles their customer service... I am very hesitant on buying in to them once again. I also think I am not the only one that is thinking this way. I have spoken to many people I know and they feel the same way. They are not buying in to it fully. So the fan base I personally think is still a bit fractured and if WotC truly wants to try and heal that fracture, I do not think that at the moment 5E is the answer for it. At least not for the foreseeable future.
It is way to difficult to compare TSR to Paizo of today. The Market is completely different. The marketing in general is a different model as Dragonchess Player mentions and it is just a different age and distribution system. So your comparisons in the OP is just to over the top in my opinion. Not to mention I do not buy the whole TSR business expenditures completely. I would love to see the research that he is coming up with other then a hear say testimony by yourself.
I knew people from TSR and even WotC back in the days... I think you are just more then a little off base.
I am thinking they will come back in to production. 5 days to go and 76K is not to bad. With the last minute push a lot of Kickstarters tend to get, makes me very hopeful :)
Hehehe. (To everyone) So please please support this. It is well worth it. You might have seen them at Gen Con. I think you will like them a lot.
Besides you probably know someone that has already supported it so you do not want to be left out when they got something cool and you don't. Imagine going to a con with these all done up and predrawn and NOT have to worry about your mats getting stained because the marker was left on to long.
Think about it and then go and support it! :)
John and Mike,
I know this is a Gen Con event as well was it was for Paizo Con.. but it does say it was released Wed, Jul 30th.
I do not have a 1rst edition DMG BUT I have a 2ned edition DMG signed by Gary Gygaz, Dave Arnson, David "Zeb" Cook, R.A Salvatore, Sean K. Reynolds, A personalized character Drawing by Jeff Easley, and a personalized letter from Danilo Thann (By Elaine Cunningham) to my Favorite Character, and many many more inside one lowly 2ned edition DMG :)
I am sure Sean remembers signing it at one point and giving bubble text to the character drawing in there at Gen Con 2000 :) (Maybe he doesn't as his memory is not as good as it used to be and he might not remember his WizO_Kip (TSRO_Kip) :)
For those that do not know what Tact-Tiles are.. they are awesome!! They are a modular Wet and dry erase gaming surface... sort of like a Chessex map meets Paizo Flip-Mat married in to a puzzle like surface surface that is awesome to say the least. When the company went out of business awhile ago (This is NOT the same company) The Tact-Tiles sold for a small fortune on Ebay and still do, that is IF you could find them even.
Now they are coming back better then ever and by a new company.
I know there have been many many people on these forums that have wanted to see these come back in to existence.. It is in it's first day of the Kickstarter.. so lets back it up!!! :)
Go to TACT-TILES Kickstater page..
Brell I can understand being a bit bitter... but being vindictive is not always a good thing either. I have bought cases of each of the Pathfinder Miniatures and I agree that while not all have been painted to my satisfaction, I am not worried that they will not show well on the table when I am using them.. yes I even got one of the bad Feiya miniatures and have had people STILL want her too as one of their figures and or to use her on the table.
I am not saying don't be upset or even telling you what to do at all. But being vindictive is never usually the answer at all. Either way I wish you luck sir!
Vic I am actually disappointed Con of the North (Feb) here in MN was not able to get any promo cards for the ACG RotRL for it earlier this year despite the fact I emailed someone about it several times before the convention :(
I was trying to promote the card game as much as possible at the Pathfinder Society event we had going on there the entire weekend. I was even able to get several card games going too. :(

The fact that you call it a "Money Grabbing Scheme" is the problem I have. No company that produces product and then uses it in their game and furthers their own product through it to me is not a scheme.. nor money grabbing. I know you are ok with Paizo promoting their own product and such. But you have to realize it is basic marketing practice when a company does produce their products they are going to do their best to promote their product and try and get you as a consumer to use them as much as possible.
Mike Brock put it succinctly though in that they are trying to get it so that the GM does not have to use 3 different rules systems for the same thing. Speaking as one of those GM's I am grateful for that as I do personally do not want to use 3 different systems where 1 will suffice. So having to make sure the person using a harrowing deck actually has one made by Paizo.. I do not have a problem with it.
So I do not see this as a a company "sinking" to a level but as a marketing practice like any other company. But also as a rules consolidation for which I am grateful. Any company that does this though is not sinking to a level. A company that you have a "need" of their product and actually can not live without and then forces you to pay more and more for said product is scamming you. But a company that gives you a choice to use their products and you whether you choose to do so or not is your choice but not a scam. Just an FYI... I know a rather long winded one. Sorry :)
