Hi

Any news on when this is releasing to subscribers who haven't had it yet. Disappointing to have to wait beyond release date to get subscription copies.

Thanks

Medriev

Hi

As per the release thread I am creating a new thread as I have not had an email confirming the PFS and SFS scenarios for this month are available. They are also not in my downloads. Grateful for help please. This is the second month in a row that this has happened so maybe there's a problem with my account?

Thanks

The issue I have with HLO is unpredictable downtime. Over the last two weeks it has gone down during a game on three occasions which is problematic to say the least. I don't object to a subscription model as long as I get a reliable product for my money. At the moment, HLO is not that and it's souring my PF2E experience as a result.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

All sorted now. Thanks

Also missing these. Can this be sorted please when you have chance? Thanks


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I also don't have SFS 2-05 or SFS 2-06 despite them being available to non-subscribers. Can this be sorted please?

Thanks


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Hi

I have the same issue. I didn't know this was part of the subscription and bought it separately.

If a refund is an option that would be great.

Thanks

I converted the Tentamort and Yeth Hound to 2E Playtest. Not sure how they stand up to final version of 2E but feel free to adapt as needed if useful. In retrospect the Yeth Hound's sinister bite should probably be an action but these were very quick conversions based on similar level creatures in the Playtestiary.

Spoiler:

TENTAMORT (UNCOMMON CREATURE 4)
Aberration ¦ Perception +11; darkvision, scent 30 feet
Medium ¦ Languages -
Skills +3; Athletics +11, Stealth +9
Str +4, Dex +0, Con +3, Int –2, Wis +1, Cha –2
AC 19, TAC 16; Fort +10, Ref +5, Will +8
HP 65
Speed 20 feet
[A] Melee grasping tentacle +11, Damage 2d6+2 bludgeoning and Grab
[A] Melee sting +11 (agile), Damage 2d8+4 piercing plus poison
[A] Constrict 7 bludgeoning
[A] Reposition
Requirement The tentamort has a creature grabbed in its grasping tentacle.
Effect The tentamort attempts to reposition the grabbed creatures to other spaces within reach, rolling an Athletics check against their Fortitude DC. On a failure, the creature doesn’t move but remains in place, and on a critical failure, the creature is no longer grabbed.
Poison Saving Throw Fortitude DC 16; Maximum Duration 6 rounds; Stage 1 1d6 poison and enfeebled 1 (1 round); Stage 2 As stage 1; Stage 3 1d6 poison, and enfeebled 2 (1 round) .

YETH HOUND CREATURE 3
Perception +8; darkvision, scent
Languages Abyssal or Infernal (can’t speak)
Skills +3; Athletics +7, Acrobatics +7, Stealth +9
Str +3, Dex +2, Con +2, Int –2, Wis +2, Cha +0
AC 18, TAC 17; Fort +7, Ref +6, Will +5
HP 50; Weaknesses silver 5
Speed 40 feet; fly 60 feet
[A] Melee jaws +9, Damage 2d6+4 piercing plus sinister bite
[A] Bay (fear) When a yeth hound howls or barks, all creatures except other evil outsiders within a 300-foot spread must succeed on a DC 12 Will save or become Frightened 1 for 2d4 rounds. This is a sonic mind-affecting fear effect. Whether or not the save is successful, an affected creature is bolstered against the same hound’s bay for 24 hours.
Sinister Bite (fear) A good-aligned creature bitten by a yeth hound must make a DC 14 Will save or be Frightened 1 for 1 round. If the victim is already suffering from a fear effect (such as the hound’s bay attack), the victim is instead completely overcome with fear and can do nothing but cower for 1 round. This is a mind-affecting fear effect.

Good work! These look great from a quick read through. The more I think about PF 2E backgrounds the more I think that 1E campaign traits should map across to them well with a bit of work.

Medriev,

You fit the common mold for this issue. I've created the scenarios for you. We'll be taking a look into why people with both complimentary subs seem to be the ones that are skipped!

Great work Sam. All received. Really appreciate the super quick resolution.

Hi

So the last SFS scenario I have in my downloads is 2-02 Waking the Past and the last PFS is 10-22 Passing the Torch, Part 1. Are you able to check what's happened to mine please?

I really like the new format, especially the adventure toolkit section. Allows Paizo to customise what they include to suit each adventure rather than sticking to a set format. They also seem to be using sidebars to fit in extra info too.

I'm also thoroughly impressed my books (including CRB and Bestiary) got to me in the UK today when they only shipped last week. Well done Paizo! Good work!

There will be deity descriptions for two gods in the last AP volume of PF1E. The gods in it are going to be the dwarven god Angradd and the redeemed demon lord Nocticula. I can't wait to read about them! I hope there're full body illustrations for both.

Both entries are same format as Inner Sea Gods and both have full body illustrations.

This has been my method for quite some time due to lack of time (and to a certain extent inclination) to find a group. I can play whenever I have free time and have got through Curse of the Crimson Throne from start to finish. Currently on Book 3 of Rise of the Runelords and Book 5 of Dead Suns (Starfinder). I also plan to play Age of Ashes this way when 2E drops.

I recommend this (now sadly defunct) site for some great tips and a variety of suggested methods:

https://web.archive.org/web/20180806030426/https://thelonecrusader.com/

The Mythic Game Master Emulator system is also a great resource although I don't use it at the moment. It's pretty cheap on Drivethru RPG.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Very pleased with the direction this line is going. Was not too pleased with the playtest but optimistic for PF2E. Roll on August!!

Hi Cyria!

That was indeed how the shipment had been set up by the postal service, but there was the option to ship all the items in one box, and it was only $.40 more expensive, so I bumped it up to that. Let me know if you would prefer a different shipping method.

Hi

My subscription is shipping in five separate packages as well which is unusual. I don't mind if it's cheaper but if I get five separate customs charges that's going to hurt.

Thanks

Hi Medriev,

Thanks for letting us know! I've taken a look, and was able to consolidate both your monthly subscriptions and your Battles minis into one box. I'll go ahead and send you an updated confirmation email so you can look it over to make sure everything looks good. If you have any changes you'd like to make, please either respond here or reply to the confirmation email to let us know. Otherwise, you should be all set! Thanks, and have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks Katina. All looks good. Look forward to that bumper present arriving. Have a good weekend all.

You have the main Runelords one listed, but Curse of the Crimson Throne, Jade Regent... and I keep thinking one other one... are both slightly related to the three you mentioned.

I haven't read it, but I assume Carrion Crown and Tyrant's Grasp are kind of related.

Hell's Rebels and Hell's Vengeance pretend to be related but only because they happen in the same country at the same time. The players might hear about general things happening in the other one but neither has any actual impact on the other.

I think the third one you're thinking of here is Second Darkness which is linked to Rise of the Runelords and Jade Regent by a prominent NPC who features in all three.

There is at least one direct link between Rise of the Runelords and Curse of the Crimson Throne (certainly in the RotR Anniversary Edition) but Curse does not assume that RotR has taken place (nor do Second Darkness or Jade Regent for that matter).

Hi

Could someone check the above order to start a Pathfinder Battles subscription please?

The prices don't look right to me given it starts a subscription so grateful if someone from Paizo could check everything is showing correctly at your end.

Many thanks

Hello Medriev,

While we do not currently have a timeline for when the Ruins of Lastwall will be added to the site and the subscription as an option, I can answer about whether or not this would allow you to get the Battles Subscription discount before the Holiday discount was over.

The Ruins of Lastwall is not expected to be released until April, which is when it will ship. The Battles Subscriber discount only becomes active once an item from your newly begun subscription has shipped. Therefore, if you started the subscription with the Ruins of Lastwall, even if you did it today, you would not have the subscriber discount on other Battles purchases until it shipped in April. The combination of the Holiday code and the Subscriber discount gained from Ruins of Lastwall will not be feasible. In order to use both, you would have to begin with the Kingmaker case which can ship right away, and start an order with the subscription discount and the Holiday code only after the Kingermaker case has shipped to you.

Hopefully this is the information you need to make the decision that works best for you!

Thanks Sam. That's very helpful. I'll go ahead and use my holiday discount on a Dungeons Deep case and wait to subscribe for Ruins of Lastwall.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Hi Paizo

Is there an answer to this? I also have my eye on a Dungeons Deep case and if I could get a subscriber bonus as well as my holiday19 discount then that would be great.

If the subscription isn't going to let me start a sub with Ruins of Lastwall before the end of January then I'll probably order Dungeons Deep with my 10% anyway and subscribe later but would be good to know.

Thanks


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Me too. Big thick hardcover adventures were something I literally dreamed about back in my AD&D/D&D days so when Paizo made the dream a reality I bought them all on release (Shackled City, RotRL and CotCT).


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I'd like to do this as well. I've got Kingmaker from a UK distributor but now want to subscribe for Ruins of Lastwall.

Return of the Runelords (Fall 2018 AP) was announced at Gencon 2017. Tyrant's Grasp (Spring 2019 AP) was announced at PaizoCon 2018. P2 was "announced" (playtest started) at Gencon 2018.

I would expect the first P2 AP to get announced at a special event or something before February to keep their standard array of 8-12 month notice of products. That and I'm sure they need to start the ISBN # process early enough for their printers and resellers and what-not to begin adding them to their future products, etc. If they wait until PaizoCon, then the final AP will be half-way over, with no official word on something that is likely already in the QA/QC process with the print and layout depts., being 3 months away from street date.

My bad. That is right. They announced Return of the Runelords at Gen Con 2017 and Tyrant's Grasp at PaizoCon.

I agree some sort of special announcement around February would make sense. The Playtest was announced that way I think.

IIRC, the August AP is usually announced at Paizocon at the end of May. Could be earlier as it's for the new edition but that would be the latest date I'd suggest.

Still don't understand why Paizo doesn't use AP art for these. Would make them useful for those running the AP and for those not since it doesn't really matter if the map is from an AP if you're dropping it into a homebrew. It would also presumably cut costs as it would only be one art order.

Makes no sense to me for SF and PF. I appreciate some AP maps are too specialised to be used more widely but most aren't.

I see no problem with your reasoning John, and if you want to reveal info about the Gap in your campaign then that sounds like great story. I suppose the big question is what to tell the PCs in terms of a maximum length of the gap.

Using the meta-game reason for the Gap as a starting point the latest date it can start is early 4707AR (ie. just before the first AP and Gamemastery Modules set in Golarion). The end date is more tricky as, meta-game wise that needs to really be after the end of the last Pathfinder adventure set on Golarion which is, hopefully, a long way off in both real time and game time. Your call really but you could settle for anything from a few hundred (to allow technology to evolve) to a few thousand (to be on the safe side) years.

Would be good to hear what you settle on as I'm intrigued by this idea.

EDIT: This has also now got me thinking about whether there is a historical event on the Pathfinder timeline that could be the cause of the Gap. No ideas yet but interesting to think about. Of course, the cause of the Gap does not need to be on Golarion (although I think it's more fun if it is).

FURTHER EDIT: I'm also now thinking about when Golarion disappeared as it can't happen at the beginning of the gap as, meta-game wise, Golarion needs to be present into the Gap so that Pathfinder stories can still happen. At some point during the Gap, Golarion needs to disappear and be replaced by Absalom Station. Something else for PCs to figure out information on.

If the description is accurate and this chapter is for 11th level characters, this AP will be going to level 20 like the previous one does.

It also makes sense if the big bad really is Lich #1.

Afraid the Paizo people have already confirmed this has traditional level progression and doesn't go to level 20. A level 11 adventure for book 4 fits with this IIRC. It would be good if 1-20 became the standard and I'm sure they have said this will be the aim with PF2 APs.

That's a lot of math to pretty much get to the same conclusion, but yeah. It's the same rule and system, in a roundabout way.

Am I the only one who feels there's a lot more workload on the GM in this edition?

I do get that we reach the same end point but if that's the case isn't this a rule change to solve a problem that doesn't exist? It certainly seems that way to me. Would love to hear from the Paizo people what the rationale was for switching to this system.

I agree with Reckless that this is very disappointing and that it is something we have every right to express our disappointment about here.

I also agree that customer service / shipping issues are rare for Paizo but I am concerned that of the perhaps half a dozen issues I have experienced in my 15 years or more of dealing with the company, at least three of those have been this year. I am concerned that the company is overextended with Starfinder and the PF Playtest landing so close together and that this is impacting on the otherwise outstanding customer service. With shipping costs to the UK being so high and customs charges sometimes being levied on top (nothing to do with Paizo obviously) I am already considering how many of my subscriptions I can realistically maintain and this month's problems, first with Playtest pre-orders and now with subscription shipping are making me think. In the end, I will probably see how the next couple of months goes but I am not in a good place with Paizo at the moment.

Glad someone started a thread on this as the new XP system has been niggling at me since I first got the books.

Why do we have to look up where the encounter sits relative to the party (which, as someone points out above could have varying levels) and then split XP based on relative difficulty? What's wrong with adding up the XP values of the monsters / traps in the encounter (which should are in their stat blocks in 1E) and splitting it between the party? I appreciate the maths needs some thinking about to make sure level progression is fairly steady but this game has nearly twenty years of work behind that sort of system (if you just start from 3E) so why change it. Doesn't make sense to me.

Unfortunately I had already ordered from somewhere else based on the estimated delivery dates so I will end up with two copies of everything (and twice the cost) but guess I'll have to live with that.

I would be very surprised if they did. Unless they need to test the monster building rules specifically they probably don't want to add more variables that could throw off the results of things they want to test.

Yep. Can understand why it wouldn't be a priority for the playtest as it would be difficult to get useful feedback on homebrewed content. Would have been useful though.The rules in Unchained and Starfinder are really good and wanted to see / try out the new incarnation.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

As per thread title.

Would really like to see the monster-building rules. Along with playing Doomsday Dawn, I was planning on converting the Rise of the Runelords game I'm running for my daughter. The level up and level down rules are useful but would be great to try out the full monster building mechanics.

It has been noted that Lich and Were-creature are nolonger monster tempalates, but rather presented as complete monsters.

Other than the Elite and Weak "Adjustments" in the Playtest Bestiary, has the fate or future of monster templates been mentioned anywhere else?

I think all we know is that monster-building uses a system similar to Pathfinder Unchained / Starfinder. I would imagine that Were-creature and Lich would be template grafts (or whatever that becomes in 2E) given that is what they are in Unchained.

On a side note I'm a bit disappointed that the monster creation rules aren't in the Playtest docs as would have liked to try them out (not least for converting old APs) but appreciate homebrewed monsters would skew the data Paizo gathers.

As per my posts elsewhere and my emails to customer service that have all gone unanswered please cancel the above order of my Playtest products.

The estimated delivery date of 6 September for UK pre-orders is not anywhere near what we were promised and I would therefore be grateful if you would cancel the order and refund my payment in full so that I can source the Playtest products from elsewhere.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Any update on UK orders?

An estimated delivery date of 6 September is ridiculous. We should be offered a full refund so that we can source the books elsewhere.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Do we have a decision on whether we will be able cancel orders and get full refunds (as I have requested via email)? I'm not prepared to wait until September and have ordered duplicates via Book Depository given Paizo / Amazon has not been able to fulfil as promised.

When I ordered mine it says, as it always does for cheapest shipping possible from Paizo, shipping time 11-40 business days. So as long as I get mine by mid September Paizo is covered from 40 working days after Aug 2nd. What did your shipping estimate say when you ordered it, is the UK normally substantially faster than NZ? Or did you pay extra for expedited shipping, if that was available?

I had my about to ship email on 13 July and it said 11 to 36 business days as usual but I queried on the forums whether international customers could expect to get products on or about 2 August and was assured (by Vic) that we could. That said I would have lived with a short delay. A month, however, during which one of the flip mats will become redundant for playtest purposes of following the timetable, is not acceptable to me.
