I have already received the regular editions of the Bestiary and Pathfinder Core Rulebook via subscription. I'd rather not get the deluxe versions as well so can they be removed?

Also, I had planned on cancelling my Starfinder Adventure path after Dawn of Flame #6.

Can that please be done so I don't get #19.

Thanks.

Anyone else seeing this today for Pathfinder 2 subscriptions?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yeah, the UI is broken, no matter what you select it picks the first one.

I have the same problem.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Not yet!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Do we know where they are going to post this info?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I have started a Core Rulebook subscription. No matter how many times I keep selecting 'start with core rulebook' it keeps adding Planar Adventures. I definitely don't want this.

Please make sure my sub starts with the 2.0 content!

Thanks


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Just to clarify, I have ordered the first 3 core Pathfinder 2.0 books.

What I'd like to do is convert this to a subscription starting with the new Core Rulebook 2.0.

I'm a little confused by the website and don't want to end up ordering 1.0 stuff.

Please help thanks. Also I'd love to pick up at GenCon if possible.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hi,

I currently have the first 3 core rulebooks for Pathfinder 2.0.

Is it possible for me to get that converted into the subscription?

Thanks


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

HI, somehow I ended up with doubles of all the Starfinder minis. Can I get my order changed so I'm getting ONE of each, instead of TWO.

Thank you!

The game, like most games, is made to assume you want to be good at things. It's not going to cover corner cases of wanting to be bad at things.

One reason is because being bad at things can make things more difficult for the party, not just for you.

They may have to save you due to a weakness, and therefore put themselves in danger. If they elect to not save you it could cause OoC issues.

I'd just talk to the GM about allowing you to be bad at ____ if that is what you want.

I can see the augment of hindering other players. It might just be my knee jerk reaction of a lvl of control being removed from 1ed where I could fine tune my skills E.G max ranks in one thing, a point in another for to show some lvl of competence, then nothing in a knowledge I know nothing about.

One thing I want to say in addition to my starting point is if no skill can be bad no skill can be particularly good ether. If you have two PCs with the same abilities the score the skill difference is barely noticeable.

I will be playing as written for the playtest ofc but I'm hoping for a more flexable version of skills in release. On the bright side it is still better than DND5ed skills where your forced in to certain skills based on class, I can at least choose to be untrained here even if it doesn't make much difference from being trained.

I think this is one of those rules where it seems fine while everyone is very low level but starts feeling stupid at high levels.

I posted a different thread since I didn't know the title of this was referring to this.

Agree completely you shouldn't be incredibly good at something you never used and have no interest in just because you looted some dungeons

I believe in 5e if the group is required to make checks for something like stealth then only half are required to succeed. Given the rules around Exploration mode something like this makes sense.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So as I read it on page 291, all skills are modified by level regardless of proficiency. So a completely untrained lvl 20 pc with a 18 associated ability will still have a +18 modifier. A legendary indivishal will have a +23. That seems bizarre to me, even taking into account some actions can't be done untrained.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I searched this forum and the GenCon event listing and I don't see any Pathfinder Playtest events. Is that correct or am I missing something?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I got mine at GenCon and started noticing this issue real early. I didn't realize it was a 'thing' until someone mentioned it.

What do I need to do?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

OK. Thanks for the response. I searched thoroughly for 'space goblin ac' and 'space goblin armor class' both here and on google and found nothing, thus I posted. Nothing in the first contact book mentions that they don't follow normal rules for AC.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Just downloaded this and was looking through it.

I noticed the Space Goblin has a +3 DEX bonus but ACs are 11 and 12.

Am I missing something or is this an obvious error?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thank you!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Option was only to start with #2, but I'd love to get #1 (with the appropriate cost) once its off backorder?

Please add it to my newly purchased sub if possible.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'm at GenCon, this adventure sold out on day one and its listed unavailable on the website. Will it get more printings? I loved the Starfinder intro game and would like to have from the beginning so I'm subscribing, but it starts with #2.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yes, 4 tickets opened for the thursday 2pm quest pack and I grabbed 2.

Keep searching folks, stuff will open up as people re-arrange schedules


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I assume you cannot hold tickets in your cart forever. Anyone know what the expiry on that is if people don't pay for the tickets in the cart? Some tickets may get freed at that point


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yeah this really sucked. Submitted at 1201 and every starfinder event gone. Demand must be huge as those 150 person events were gone in an instant.

Please add more!!!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I got your email (and responded).

They did attempt to deliver something on the 28. I then used their website to rearrange delivery. they never attempted this and have now already returned to sender.

Can you ship it out yet again using a trackable shipping method? I will pay the difference.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

No response?

I just received an item I ordered on Friday by mail. So it doesn't make sense that the Dragon hasn't shown up.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hi,

I have not received the replacement order you listed above
2858408. It says it shipped back on the 24th of October.

I have been receiving my regular subscription shipments without problem so it can't be my shipping address as a problem. I also received the original Skull and Shackles crate order without issue.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thanks very much for your help! Any idea what happened to the original? I received the rest of the minis (which were shipped separate) no problem.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hi,

I never received the Gargantuan Skeletal Dragon from my Skull and Shackles order.

Did it ship?

Can someone figure out what happened to it?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I think it's worse than you are making it sound. By your own admission you have a roleplay centric group, and yet you had to condense the 20 days to 12. And even then, I think asking even a roleplaying group to spend 6 sessions essentially near-powerless victims of tedious lashings will stretch their patience to the limits. 10 sessions definitely would.

As for the swarms, lets be clear here. Swarms have always been one of the more broken parts of Pathfinder/3.5 rules, and placing these in a scenario where there is no clear way of combatting them is beyond 'deadly', its malpractice by the adventure designer. As mentioned, without a very specific type of PC in the party, this is a near certain TPK, especially in the scenario where the party is attacked by the ankheg at the same time as the swarm.

Finally, the overuse of monsters with improved grab and high-damage output means that you are likely taking multiple PCs out of each fight, not only threatening a lot of deaths but also being constantly frustrating.

Not even mentioned is that the group supposedly only has 48 hours to get through the island the only fresh water source is miles from the coast.

A more creative selection of opponents on the Island (no flying creatures? how about some goblin primatives?) would have presented challenges to different character types without making it a cakewalk.

My party is a veteran group of 5 members and is on 25 point buy and if I hadn't removed the swarms and fudged in a few cases they would have been wiped out. I question if this was ever successfully play tested without many player deaths as written now.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I just posted this on the product message board but perhaps more relevant here. Maybe people can give me some feedback on this. I almost feel like I'm doing something wrong:

I am taking my group through this, and there are a number of questionable design decisions that I wonder were play tested.

SPOILERS BELOW

1) The initial 'time on the ship' is set to 20 days. This includes 2 ship actions at a minimum per day per PC (with lots of seemingly pointless DC 10 checks, but with occasional con checks which are quite hard and result in various whippings.) Add in 5 bonus ship actions per pc at the end. Lets make an EXTERMELY conservative guess that a ship action takes 2 minutes of real time to resolve. 20 days x 2 actions +5 x 4 PCs is 180 ship actions!!!! At 2 minutes per action that's 360 minutes or SIX HOURS. And we aren't even counting the actual encounters and events during this time!

I ended up cutting it in half and it was still tedious and dragged over two sessions.

2) Shipwrack Isle or whatever its called: I hope you like monsters with improved grab. Giant frogs, Ankhegs, vine-chokers, giant crabs. All with improved grab. This is a nightmare for PCs with average CMDs (and are 2nd level at this point). Being constantly grappled is NOT FUN.

3) Botfly swarms? Sure, these are CR3, but if the group lacks a character with an AoE spell, they are a TPK waiting to happen. 31 hp? 2d6 damage automatic, IMMUNE TO ALL WEAPONS. Oh, and they give ghoul fever? Basically if the party doesn't have a sorcerer with burning hands, its game over, or they do a lot of un-fun running. I just took them out completely but since they were factored in to get the players up to level 3 for the caves at the end, I had to fudge XP.

I love pirates and was so psyched to run a pirate themed campaign, but I'm definitely going over each adventure going forward and dramatically re-working anything like this I See again, as it is constantly annoying and frustrating my group.

I think the irony of Paizo's subdscription model is it means a huge percentage of their customers rarely visit their site to do anything other than go to their 'downloads' section.

I rarely have to make buying decisions because they were made when I signed up for msubscriptions.

The result is I visit the site and forums rarely. I had never heard about this new edition of the book until today and I have 3 active subscriptions and have since Paizo started making them.

I don't care about the collectability. I have a pre-ordered copy of Ptolus, and I appreciate the book greatly, but never even considered it might have any value beyond a gaming accessory. The same goes for this. If a 2nd printing was done and it clearly indicated as such, I wouldn't give a fig, I'd happily buy it.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Why not take pre-orders for a 2nd run. If you can't get enough to justify it, cancel the 2nd run and refund the money.

They are a Tiny Company, they can't do Huge print runs, especially with books as monolithic as this. A Huge print run would Bankrupt them most likely.

Exactly- this volume is fatter then Ptolus and I don't see anyone declaring that Monte Cook of somehow scamming his customers with a limited print run. If you just want the gaming resource, then just buy the PDF and print as needed.

(Preordered from FGG a few weeks back- the PDF is a beast, but great. I ended up not having my Paizo Discount, but considering the run on this book, happy I erred on the side of caution- now just waiting for my hardcopy).

Advertising on a tiny, obscure website, and the forums here, is hardly advertising. As clearly shown by the results of Paizo's email, there are a crapload of Paizo customers who do NOT visit these boards on a regular basis. I have 3 subscriptions and have had for a long time, and yet I visit these boards about once every 3 months.

Unless they are selling for a loss, if it takes them 5 days to sell out rather than 8 hours, they are only giving up profits by not making more, and I doubt they'd be making a book to sell for a loss.

If the damand is there for another print run, why on earth wouldn't they do it?

Frog God is in the short print run business.

I don't think anyone expected this to sell out in less than a day, though, so everyone's heads are kind of spinning at the moment.

So I'm puzzled. The pre-order sold out in less than a day.

Does that mean there will be more copies available at some point, since they say pre-order? And if so, will they be here or on Frog God games site?

Or is that it?

Hi,
Don't mean to be a pest but this order is over 16-days beyond when it normally arrives, and 21 business days from when it shipped. Really don't want to keep waiting to see if it shows up. I'm confident it's lost somewhere. is there some way to get this order re-sent without spending another $50.00. Order number is 1360122

NOTE: I've already been told twice to wait till the end of next week and if it doesn't arrive it will be addressed. That is not an acceptable answer again.

I wish you luck man. Mine is on 18 business days right now, no response as yet. What I am concerned about is this is the 2nd shipment in 3 months that this has happened to for me, after nearly two years of on-time deliveries.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

For the math challenged, i'm now up to 18 business days since this was supposed to have shipped.

I still have not received this.

This is the 2nd time in 3 shipments that it's taken over 3 weeks to receive my shipment.

I never had these problems until this year, I have been a subscriber since Adventure Path #1

There are some nice comments about how you could reconfigure your shipping to get the products on time.

But it doesn't address the issue that a product was delayed several weeks and the customer was not informed. If I buy something from Amazon they tell me that, and I don't have a 'subscription' there where I am committing to buying all this product every month.

When a product is delayed more than a week, I think people who have ALREADY ORDERED THE PRODUCT, should be notified. I guess I am expected to check the forum regularly and read all threads to find out if the products I have ordered are shipping on time?

The previous poster put up a strawman by saying that they can't send 'thousands of emails when something slips from tuesday to wednesday' but no one is asking for this.

A simple message saying

'You have currently selected to receive your products bundled into a single monthly shipment, One or more of your products has been delayed a week or more and will delay your other products. If you choose you can go to this link to select 'ship products seperately' for this month.'

Something like that would have been a simple database query and automated email and saved a lot of headaches for Paizo and their customers.
