For what it's worth, at least some of this stuff *has* been taken to heart- I can't recall if it was in a Q&A devoted to game questions or during one of their Kingmaker twitch streams, but it was mentioned that one of the APG items is a shield specifically designed to explode and damage the enemy after breaking, priced as a consumable.

I personally would like to see Permanency and Contingency back, presumably as rituals. I love playing the ever prepared wizard, and those two spells really help sell and play that.

Definitely want Permanency back as well, but good news for you! Contingency is in the core rulebook. Not as a ritual, sure, but in the same form 1e had it.

My plan is to let them use Payout GP to level up the NPC performers (to a max of the PCs level) so that if they have a specific NPC they like they can keep them relevant. I haven't nailed down precisely how much it'll cost, but they were open to the idea when I pitched it. My first pass is 5GP per level (as in, level 2 is 10GP, level 3 is 15, so going from 1 to 3 costs 25).

Thanks for the update- and also for the hard work, I can't imagine manually sending out that many entries was a particularly fun task. :-(

And I'm not trying to sound harsh, but when something is a full primary product sold independently of what it's bundled with, passing it off as *just* a perk is arguing in bad faith with semantics... and that even if it weren't, it *still* isn't an unreasonable expectation for it to be available by at least the time it's publicly available.

Also, it's very disappointing that we have no update to tell us when our subscription products are shipping given the shipping window ended yesterday.

This too.

You definitely shouldn’t handwave it away as a nonissue. It’s an issue and I wasn’t attempting to dismiss anyone’s perspective.

There’s just a reason behind how things are that many may be unaware of (the “why don’t we all get PDFs at the first day of the shipping window?” question comes up a lot).

I quoted you, but I didn’t mean it to come off as a challenge - sorry if that’s how it sounded.

I was more offering some perspective into the discussion from someone who has placed a thousand orders, (with over a hundred of them subscriptions). Based on my sample, the system works pretty well, even if there are the occasional unlucky runs of three delayed months in a row from time to time. I also personally think it’s improving over the long term - something that’s hard to see for those who maybe signed up at PF2’s launch. (Again not directed at you specifically but more just words into the general hubbub of conversation).

I appreciate the clarification, and I'm sorry my reply was that hostile in tone.

I guess... when I really concentrate on what's bugging me about all this, it's not even that the stuff is late. It's that even when the system is *working*, items that could be delivered with near-perfect consistency of date- the PDFs- aren't. I'm aware that getting all the shipping labels printed and attached and orders sent out is a massive enough undertaking that it'd be silly to want a very short timeframe, but the PDFs.... I would happily accept getting those on release date if their delivery were separate and we could expect them with complete consistency ON the release date. The current system where we can get them one to two weeks early is... nice, but the *possibility* of it taking this long when *physical* shipping has issues is just baffling.

If you have a subscription to something that has instant delivery, then it should be delivered by *at least* the day it's publicly available, regardless of issues with the other items. That's not an unreasonable expectation.

So, any word on what the revised revised revised revised end shipping date is?

They could guarantee that. They don’t, by choice - it was always been an aim that subscribers get their books and PDFs “on or about” streetdate.

Well, that's sort of the point for this one here, now isn't it? We're not at "on or about" street date, we're at "it's past street date and it hasn't even shipped".

Like... I get that there were concerns over how it would shake out, yeah, and that's valid, but it's not enough to just handwave away the fact that we're subscribed to a product that is publicly and instantly available but haven't received. That's something that should *not* just be passed off as "oh well, that's the way things are! :3 :3 :3"

I'm all for patience, but it's honestly kind of ridiculous that we can't even be guaranteed to get *DIGITAL ITEMS* by the day they're released.

Three points, if you count the total collapse of the shopping cart in December.

The other option is street date.

If it came with a free PDF, I'd be seriously considering just going with that.


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Pathfinder Accessories, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Christ, I appreciate getting updated at the very least, but I'm starting to get really tired of hearing "Sorry, we have had ANOTHER technical issue" over and over. At this point I'm starting to wonder why y'all even bother putting up an "end shipping date" entry, if it's this much of a guess.


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Pathfinder Accessories, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Mine is listed as "time in transit 4-5 days, previously 1-5 days", with shipping date still 'pending' XD

I'm solidly on track to get my books on street date


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Pathfinder Accessories, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for knowing that some people have their *physical books* before we get even a PDF. x_x

One day, I will be near the front of the queue... but that day is not today. o7

Managed to contact CS over the phone, issue resolved.

All three orders are showing up as 0 items in my order history. For Order 10052214 and Order 10713155 this isn't too big a deal, since I was properly charged and had the items added to my account, but Order 10708216 is a very large order of physical items that I *need* to be able to keep an eye on. So far I've posted in the sticky regarding this kind of issue, with no response; sent in a direct email, also no response; and, just now, phoned in during listed customer services hours, only to be redirected to an automated message listing the hours and asked to leave a message. This is getting downright ridiculous.


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Pathfinder Accessories, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Any further movement on this? Haven't heard back either here or from an email sent in regarding it. One of the orders is a fairly large one that I actually need to keep track of for financial reasons.


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Pathfinder Accessories, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Order 10708216 & Order 10052214

Both cases, didn't disappear from the cart, but from the order list under my account after purchase.


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Pathfinder Accessories, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

So there's a solid chance the shipment won't arrive until significantly past the street date? That's... disappointing. :-/
