I was a former subscriber to the Adventure Paths, and my interest has been severely rekindled with the new Kingmaker series (to the point where I might start liquidating shelf space to pay for/accommodate the new issues). I printed off part of the Player's Guide that I downloaded (the 16 page one) and came here to look if I could buy a print copy for $2 like you could for the first few APs.
~whew~ long story short, I can't find them. Are they still being offered?
A lot of the other threads have been bandying about the 25k downloads that Alpha has gotten so far, and somehow construing that to a fanbase. Of course, Alpha and Beta are both FREE downloads! Getting something for free and paying ~$40US for something (i.e. PFRPG when it comes out) are two different animals.
I guess my question is: What percentage of 25,000 downloads will actually translate into sales for Paizo? My guess would be 10-20%, but it's just that - a guess. I'm not a businessman and know next to nothing about sales, so I will pose the question to the community.
FWIW, I have Beta pre-ordered at my FLGS and plan on buying PFRPG when it comes out.
I think the original thread of our conversation is gone...
I had ordered DCC #12 which was advertised as autographed, but my original copy came in as non-autographed. You promptly sent me a replacement, and asked that I send back the original (and said that the postage would be refunded on my next order). I dropped the ball on sending the original back, but it will be in the mail today.
Now that I've placed order #924719, why not ship all three together?
I'm running a WFRP2 game and am looking for some ideas for throwing in vampires against the PCs. What I specifically need is an adventure (if one exists) that pits the PCs (who could be considered a gang - one of the PCs is on the road to Crime Lord) against a rival group that is, or is lead by, vampires. I have never played anything Ravenloft, but after a cursory glance of the .pdfs available, I don't think that's the theme I'm looking for. Has anyone had experience with a game or adventure like this? Game system doesn't matter, as I'll most likely be scavenging ideas and creating NPCs myself.
This isn't a New Year's Resolution or anything like that, but I'm going through a purge of RPG materials that have collected and have remained unused since I've owned them. I'm a sucker for sales, and pick up almost anything that I find on clearance at Half Price Books, and delved into the recent Green Ronin/Paizo sale that we had here last month. Not that I need to justify getting four books for the price of a magazine, it makes great sense, but once you have piles of books several feet high, enough is enough!
So I'm curious, am I alone in having a ton of books that I've never read? What do you estimate your percentage of read materials is? How do you decide what should go? I have a bunch of setting books and materials for games that I'll probably never play (Alternity, Last Unicorn's STAR TREK) - should I let go and send them off despite great settings? Or am I fooling myself? Should I also do a d20 purge like so many companies are doing? Thoughts?
I realize my second order is but a day old, but I was wondering if you could ship everything on hand (possibly combining orders)... I'm getting antsy waiting for mail - especially the one placed Nov 14th!
(no worries if something is unavailable right now, I can handle another shipping charge... or if it can be combined with Pathfinder, that would be better!)
