Anyone know if when the label printed is completely random, or based on something (location, number of items on order, etc). I only have few days points but it seems that since I added cards to my subscriptions my orders have been taking longer get printed.

Persistent Damage is a Condition, but also damage, there's not really anything in there that you quoted that say it's not doubled.

Here is why I don't agree with that. Persistent damage is the name of a condition, that condition applies its own damage. The damage that it applies only happens at the end of the targets turn.

Damage dealt by strikes happens right there and then. The rules for doubling describe you doubling the damage occur on step 2 of the damage application rules. The damage is applied on step 4. All that happens before the strikers next action.

Persistent damage is applied just like normal damage on the targets turn. It runs through the exact same steps on its own, at that time it no longer connected in any way to the critical hit.

That is correct. Where in the rules is this complicated?

The rules explicitly state how damage is calculated and doubling a condition's value is not mention.

page 451 -

Persistent Damage
Persistent damage is a condition that causes damage to recur
beyond the original effect. Unlike with normal damage,
when you are subject to persistent damage, you don’t take
it right away.

Doubling and Halving Damage
Sometimes you’ll need to halve or double an amount of
damage, such as when the outcome of your Strike is a
critical hit, or when you succeed at a basic Reflex save
against a spell. When this happens, you roll the damage
normally, adding all the normal modifiers, bonuses,
and penalties. Then you double or halve the amount as
appropriate...

Acid Splash creates a persistent damage effect on a critical, it doesn't double it.

Acid flask only does 1 point of acid damage and the listed persistent damage and the listed splash damage.

Then they showed an example but the example looks wrong. Both because it doesn't mention the one point of damage and it mentions doubling the persistent damage which if you read the doubling rules it should not effect.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

Persistent damage and critical hits.

I read the rules on page 451 indicating that persistent damage is a condition and its damage does not occur with the strike and thus is not doubled.

However several examples of doubling in other sections of the book appear to indicate that it does. Namely Acid Splash example.

Can we get an official ruling?

I have had the rulebook subscription from the beginning of 2e.

When I go to the My subscriptions page it shows the following
----------------------
Most recent product:
Pathfinder Core Rulebook shipped by 07/18/19 via USPS Package Service (estimated 4 to 8 business days in transit)
Pathfinder Bestiary shipped by 07/18/19 via USPS Package Service (estimated 4 to 8 business days in transit)

Next product:
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Planar Adventures (Cancelled 07/17/19)
Pathfinder Gamemastery Guide
-----------------------

I assume that means it is all OK, and that the Planar Adventures that I did not want will not interfere with the Gamemastery Guide shown below it.

As of this moment, my Jan orders have been completed (Yaaayyy!) but now my side cart only contains the Battle Cards (Yaaay!) the new Adventure (Yayy!) but no Game Mastery Guide (Booo!)

Can someone correct that before February shipments roll out?


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

Luckily my order has shipped so no worries for me this month. However next month the devil must be given his due. Oh well. At least a had two shipments with no tax.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

Posting again because my January 14th order is still pending and it is the 28th...if my order does not get resolved until February will I be taxed as well? Or is it set for orders ordered by a certain date?


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

So if my order for January that is still pending does not get resolved until February will I be taxed as well? Or is it set for orders ordered by a certain date?

They'll be printing more of the bulk labels tomorrow afternoon/evening for some overtime shipping on the weekend. When the labels are printed those orders are being processed for shipping and the PDFs will be added where applicable.

So if I did not get a notice from last night's bulk print job, is is safe to say I won't get my PDF this weekend?

That's just literally what the process is called. Paizo didn't name it.

Credit card authorization takes about 30 seconds and it does not involve us, no real need to list it as a step in the process.

So far everyone who answered my questions regarding authorization has stated that authorization was the email that they send you detailing out the order that was generated. It does not mention authorization of any kind, credit card or otherwise. It literally is a notification that the order was generated.

I understand the need to wait to give people a chance to cancel the order. I'm just saying the process could be better described.

2. pre-shipping authorisation

I keep reading the words authorisation which to me implies that the person is notified and must make an action to give the OK. But when I ask about it, people say I need to do nothing. Can we just call it pre-shipping notification because as the days go by and I keep seeing pending and not shipping I keep wondering if there is something I am missing.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

Any neutral good gods of Death? Asking for a friend (I mean PC I'm building).

Thanks for the great info Joana!

Should I be seeing this in my sidecart? Because I don't see it, I have other Feb releases but not the most important one.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

I'm pretty much in the same boat.. Does Customer Service work over the weekend? Fingers crossed we get shipping this weekend!


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

My order has been pending since the 14th. Is this Normal? Do I need to confirm anything (click a button, say go for it, etc?) to have it move from pending to perhaps shipping?

Sorry still new at this subscription thing.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

While it is not as bad as 5e where either it had darkvision of normal vision. It is frustrating for so many creatures immune to sneaking in the dark.

Not sure if I will just convert some creatures to low-light vision, or change how darkvision works.

My main idea is to assume the spot the creature is in to be the base level light. and Allow then to see perfectly into the adjacent lighting band, and the band beyond is considered to act like Dim light (grants concealment).

Like this
Bright -> Dim -> Dark

If you are in Bright then you can see perfectly into Dim and consider Dark Dim for detection rules.

Of if you are in Dark, you can see into Dim perfectly and bright areas are considered Dim.

If you are in a Dim area you can see perfectly in all bands. This makes creatures with Darkvision prefer dim light. I think it works well thematically.

No. You can always get the latest information on shipping schedules in the month's New Releases and Shipping thread's OP.

I not talking about general shipping. I have seen others saying they received their emails for products I also have subscribed. I have not received ANY auth emails yet. Not just the delayed items. I just want to make sure that my Gods and Magic and others will be shipped soon.

I have glitches on my account before... so I am just a bit concerned.

I am still new to subscriptions. I have 4 subs and 3 of them will kick in this January. I see a number of items in my side cart. So if I understand this correctly I should see these in my order history on the 13th. Is this correct?

Pathfinder Weapons & Armor Deck
Pathfinder Bestiary Battle Cards
Pathfinder Lost Omens: Gods & Magic Hardcover
Pathfinder Adventure: The Fall of Plaguestone


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

Thank you both for the help!


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

Thanks for your help!


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

Ok, lets see if I understand.
I have had the rulebook sub from the beginning so that should not be an issue.

For the accessories sub I don't like the idea of crit fumble cards so waiting until the 29th of Jan seems best.
For the lost omens gods and magic drops the 29th as well.
For the adventure sub I can choose fall of plaugestone since I don't have it yet.

The optimal choice would be to somehow hold off Plauguestone until the 29th. That way on that day all will be triggered and I will get the discount on each of those products.

Does that sound right?


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

Here are the corresponding Order #s
9116245 - Pathfinder Adventure Subscription & Pathfinder Accessories
8002621 - Pathfinder Lost Omens Subscription
3395375 - Pathfinder Rulebook Subscription

OK, now I think I messed something up.
On one PC my shopping cart was empty, on another it said I had 4 items to preorder.

I assumed it was a browser caching error and I just told them to be removed.

But now I am wondering if I just messed up my subscription orders.
When I go to my subscriptions page I don't see any reference to Gods and Magic which is the first item I wanted shipped to me from my new Lost Omens subscription.

To make this as quick as possible, here is a list of my subscriptions and the first products I was expecting to get.

Pathfinder Lost Omens - Gods and Magic
Adventure Subscription - The Dead God's Hand
Rulebook subscription - Gamemastery Guide
Accessories - Pathfinder Weapons & Armor Deck and Pathfinder Bestiary Battle Cards

And of course I was also inquiring about the 15% discount that I assume will get applied to these, I understand that the bonus subscription to the pathfinder society subscription would not come into effect until after the 4th item is purchased, but I would hope that all these products mentioned would have the discount (as honestly it is a large factor in going all in like I did).


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

I recently added subscriptions bringing me to 4. I do not see a discount being applied to my future purchases. Will this get resolved before they are shipped?

Also one item ships a few days before the others can I bundle them together to get a reduced shipping fee?


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

I would like to subscribe to the Lost Omens subscription, but I already purchased the currently available products.

Can I set it up to start on the first pre-order?

Looking for feedback. Do you like seeing the Table of Contents and back of the book? Or meh?

I like it, while I was already sold on this (picked it up at my FLGS) if it was something I was on the fence on, then the ToC (mostly) and the back .. less so. Would help me make a choice.

BTW this book is awesome!

Wow that is a huge discount to give up, I wish they would have informed me. That discount was a the reason I switched to a subscription instead of just buying the pdfs by themselves.

When is the next installment shipping, I might have to cancel it given this info.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

Actually I just checked my initial receipt that I received the day I ordered it and it was a 30% discount.
I noticed that when my order was fulfilled that discounted price was charged, but immediately afterwards a second charge occurred that included the cost of the core books as well as the difference between the original price and the discount.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

Sorry on the poor wording above. I meant to say that the 15% discount did not appear to be applied.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

Hello,
When I first ordered my subscription to the Adventure Path for 2e, the web page described the price as -15% off.

A few days ago I added a subscription for core books that of course did not have the 15% off.
However I just received notice that my order (#7981628) have shipped (yaaayyy!) but I notice that the 15% off was deducted. And going back to that page now no longer mentions the price reduction. Was that %15 off a typo in the first place or was it somehow accidentally removed when my new subscriptions were added.

Thanks

NOTE: It seems that my $10 credit was not applied to my core subscription (that also might have been lost as my core order was originally numbered #3395375. I guess it is OK as I will just have it used on the subsequent Adventure Path releases.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Pathfinder Accessories, Rulebook Subscriber

I'm having issues with subscribing to the new 2e adventure path. When I try to sign up, it does a couple of weird things.

1. I start by clicking the start with adventure #145 button

2. It adds 2 items to my cart but I only see 1 item in the cart when I view it.

3. It always adds the start at issues #144 when I go to checkout

4. After changing it back to #145 I go through the whole process of billing address and payment

5. At the final confirmation page it says it will start with #144 again.

Any suggestions?

I really like how you folks (Piazo) are stressing storytelling, and being able to tell the same sort of stories as you did in PF1.

The abilities gained during character creation feel organic and stresses that the PCs are unique and interesting characters, not just sheets of paper filled with abilities.

Also can't seem to download anything (tried last night at around 1am and now today at 8am). Tried 2 browsers.. so I assume my issues are the common issue for everyone... servers being hammered. It would be nice if you could cue it up and have the servers let you know when the personalizing is complete.
