This is my complementary scenarios order. I see that it generates a record, but I did not see the pdfs. Have they been posted, or do I need to wait until Friday?

My copy of Pathfinder AP #171 Hurricane's Howl was misprinted. It is missing the first sixteen pages with the inside front cover facing page seventeen and no duplicate pages. I'd like a replacement copy. Please let me know what email I should send a picture of the product I took if you need proof this is not a scam.

Order 22067705, from April of 2020 should not be Pending. It should be Complete. I think because the status is wrong, my current order, 36654186, is showing that it needs a valid payment. I had that same message last month, and when I switched that subscription order's payment from the Mastercard to the Visa on my account, the situation resolved. I'd like to not have to switch back and forth every month, so please check if this is the source of a bug that's hanging the payment processing for my subscription orders, or a real payment problem.

I had an email Monday listing these as pending, and the items have the red header saying I purchased them Monday, but they are not yet in my downloads despite looking like they can be purchased. Is there a specific time today they drop? Or is this just a bug?

It looks like this order is refusing to put Pathfinder Adventure Card Scenario #6-5: Echoes of Death in my downloads. Is it filed somewhere separate from the other scenarios in that year? If not, can you check on why that order still shows as Pending in my history and kick loose what needs to be kicked, please?

My monthly subscription is back to being held for an old, cancelled credit card. I think the problem is because the payment update CS made to the last collection of held stuff has not propagated backwards. Or at least that is how it looks on my end. I'd like to pay for my stuff either with the updated Mastercard number I entered earlier in this problem chain, or if that is truly never going to be possible, or will never fix the root cause of this long-lived issue, then with the Visa I just entered but could not change over to with the payment management links.

First Order in thread title is my regular subscription for July. I had to change card #s because of a fraud report. I was eventually able to add the new card to my account, but I could not get the manage payment button in the pending orders to change the existing card. (I wanted to edit and hit the retry button, but could not make it save the new info I entered. So I added the new card # instead.) I'd like to associate all of my orders with the new card #, not the old, declined card # which is holding everything up.

On Order 23309688: The pdfs in this order were bought during the May pdf sale, but they were incorrectly not priced with the discount at the time. I also am not sure if the difference from the full price I paid and the discounted price I was promised was ever credited as store credit or refund, because I lost or did not keep my paper receipts. I did not see any sign of this being fixed in my online statements; please check on this and fix it or point me to the order in my history where the discount reduced my bill as store credit.

I placed order 23309688 May 1 during the PDF sale, but the email I got for the order confirmation had the old price struck through and replaced with the same price for the Flip-Mat Classics pdfs, not the discounted price. Can you apply the discount as a store credit to my subscription order (#22042870)?

2. I've tried clearing my cache multiple times, but for the life of me, I can't get the download link for the Waterfront Tavern in My Downloads to work. I click it, but it's not even generating the wait 60 seconds then click message.

I'm worried that since I started a subscription this order cycle, a bug is holding up my usual subscriptions. Also, in the my account page, the order that started my adventure card subscription has the picture of the curse of the crimson throne set, but that item does not appear in the subscription order that absorbed it.

Three adventures into Age of Ashes, I'm liking it. The exploration so far seems to be a good mix of being about the location, and about the inhabitants. I am also finding it somewhat reminiscent of Reign of Winter, like an echo or reflection. Having a magic transportation mcguffin really takes the travail out of the travel, for better and for worse. From the description of Extinction Curse and Agents of Edgewatch, I want the next AP to be less local and have more of a feel where the voyage is the adventure, like Jade Regent, but warmer, ideally. Some possible road trip suggestions:

1. The change to Taldor's succession law interests Qadira and the Padishah empire decides not to just delegate the diplomacy. The PCs somehow distinguish themselves in the capital of one empire in adventure 1, the middle of the AP is escorting a diplomatic mission with a caravan subsystem, and the final adventure is all about making a good impression on the host nation, and justifying their decisions in the earlier adventures, with consequences like at the end of War for the Crown depending on how they behaved. In particular, adventure 6 is kind of like the now-canon diplomatic outcome of Vault of the Onyx Citadel, but with plenty of expectation management along the way to make clear that the diplomatic outcome is the correct end goal. Don't really care if the trip is east-bound or west-bound.

2. An NPC patron in Azir questions the Laws of Man and decides to go on a spiritual pilgrimage, or maybe has been a heretic for some time and is found out. Maybe they have to disguise themselves as merchants until clear of Rahadoum, or maybe they are the chosen family of an NPC cast out for theism. The adventures are as much about an arduous journey as they are about an interior striving for a connection to the divine. Don't really care if the final scene is attending the patron's joymaking in Pangolais, lighting candles at Iomedae's temple in Absalom after seeing the sites of all the Acts, donating Zen and the Art of Broomstick Maintenance to a grand temple to Nethys, or drinking in a random tavern where they all kick back and celebrate hitting the best Caydenite bars in the Inner Sea.

3. Somewhat less like Jade Regent and more like Age of Ashes but an inversion of Skull & Shackles. In adventure 1, the PCs are clutch help in a relatively cosmopolitan port such as Absalom, Katapesh, Niswan, Quantium, or Mechitar. Convinced they are just the freaks the ship needs, they join on to a ship that looks like a sailing vessel, but once out of sight of land is revealed actually to be an airship. The plan is to explore places like the Impossible Lands, Holomog, Murraseth, and other parts of southern Garund. In any case, the PCs are always the A-Team Away Team. Don't really care if the PCs return to their point of origin or make Anthusis or Senghor their destination, but at the end of the AP, I'm left with a feeling like I was just part of a blend of something new, Sinbad, Dragon Magazine's The Voyage of the Princess Ark, and Gail Carriger's The Custard Protocol.

So when do we get to read the iconic encounter with this tag? And what theme is Zemir, the iconic witchwarper? Ar the three new classes going to use up the themes in the core rulebook? What alignments are they? What are their names? Will they be added to the pregens pdf?

I have some subscription and one-off items which have been stuck in sidecart purgatory. I think the problem may be the now-unavailable QWSSPATD20SF (Starfinder d20), but I have no way to really tell. It may also be because last month I started a subscription. This is has been a hanging problem that has persisted with a bunch of pins I ordered back in August not shipping. Since some of the items are limited run, like Skitter Crash and We Be Heroes, can you divide the order into things that are actually available, and things that are not, so that the subscriptions and such ship during the subscription shipping window?

I added a subscription to these two orders, and I think it triggered a bug. I haven't seen a pending email for my existing subscriptions, though a visit to those pages says they're in my side cart. Also, the link to Order History under My Account goes to a golem placeholder page that looks leftover from a playtest.

I'll try to spawn a non-rules thread for this, since I can't watch in real time and join the chat. I like this stream, and the more I watch, the more the entertainment comes from wanting to scream advice at the screen, horror movie style.

Things that I've thought more than once:


  • The players seem determined not to have the scene where they create, present, and discuss the relative merits of various long-term plans for their tattoo situation and settle on which one they ought to pursue. Almost as if it was some secret conspiracy among them. Like each time they rest or come to a role-playing dialogue encounter, Jason's face looks like he's thinking this will be the time where they take stock and reflect in character, it's gonna happen, it's gonna happen, this time, by the tactical grace of Torag, let this be the time. But it keeps not happening. That's got to be frustrating for GMJB, but his suffering is also kind of hilarious. If I've caught on to the secret plot to torment Jason, please keep this Lucy and the football gag running! Hang in there Chuck^H^H^H^H^HBulmahn, eventually, someday your Council of Elrond will happen!

  • It's a key so old that the markings are worn faint, though once intricate. The knight's order's heraldry and badge are so old that no one recognizes it as contemporary. Before the passing of Qundle, the knight's death looked like he Chose Poorly at the grail lineup, perhaps as if his life had been magically sustained for who knows how many ages. Their homeland/point of origin was a nation founded in opposition to someone so old as to have been a contemporary of the person responsible for the PCs' calendar. (Who also just so happens to be a powerful necromancer.) If I was on that couch, I'd be arguing about what's the best angle into Kyonin and how what we're doing right now will help us get there even faster. Maybe Zel would have an antiquities connect in Erages. Or maybe Mykah has always wanted to see Omesta. Or if they think elves are icky, maybe they figure the knight was headed for Greengold to book passage to Cassomir and thence Absalom. Or maybe Carina is going to convince the group that the well-inked Blue Warders of Tar-Kazmukh have the sweet abjurations they all so desperately need.

  • Kerse and Macridi en route to the Five Kings Mountains for the tie-in to the last of the old campaign setting products seems like a marketing opportunity. Maybe Kyonin is just not in the cards.

  • I keep thinking about that squire left on the dock, and how he will eventually make his way to whatever town the knight was going, and wait. Like he's sitting in some adventurer bar somewhere because he's too ashamed or clueless to go back to Lastwall and fess up to missing the Sleepy Seacat. Did he take the very next barge and has he been waiting in Kerse wondering about the overdue boat all this time? Perhaps he fell in with a Varisian caravan going all the way to Absalom. Or maybe he made it to Caliphas and has been trying to contact the Palatine Eye for help. Each episode, I try to imagine another scene from his off-stage journey like the art in the editorials for Serpent's Skull. It's probably too close to GenCon to put together now, but maybe when the regular crew needs a break for whatever reason, another GM or group of players could do cut scenes of what he's up to, where each time he's the sole survivor of a one-shot scenario.

How do I return an error item? In this order, I ordered QWSSPATIM, the Pathfinder Dice: Playtest Edition (limited edition) with the red ink on the playtest plastic color scheme, but was sent a copy of PZO2100-SE, the Pathfinder Playtest Rulebook Special Edition. I don't want the fancy book, but I do want the red ink dice to complete the collection, since I already have the green-grey ink in that color scheme. Are the dice actually still available? The web store says they are.

I want to be subscribed for Starfinder rule books and APs, and I have the Starfinder core rule book and Dead Suns #1 in pending. But it looks like the CRB is not part of a subscription while the AP is. I had both subscriptions in my shopping cart for much of July, I think, before I pulled the trigger Friday. If it matters, I'm not picking up at Gencon.

So I spotted this item as the last novel in the 2015 catalog pdf, and searching the ISBN, Amazon says that Liane is the author. Woot! Will it tie into either of this year's Cheliax Adventure Paths? Which Hellknight order? And who's in it that we've seen before?

Please revise the Paizo standard class block's headmatter, above the Class Skills item so that:


    Alignment: {Foo}
    Hit Die: {d4, d6, d8, d10, or d12}
    Starting Cash: {Foo} gp (average {Mean_Foo})
becomes:

    Alignment: {Foo} (tab or justifying white space here) Hit Die: {d4, d6, d8, d10, or d12}
  • Starting Age: {Intuitive, Self-Taught, or Trained}
    Starting Cash: {Foo} gp (average {Mean_Foo})

For the love of Irori, Jaidz, Pharasma, Shei, etc.!

I tried to lay it out so that there would be no impact on the existing pagination, and since there's only one word the authors would need to add, it seems pretty doable.

Something like Demons Revisited or Dragons Unleashed, but with celestials. Except maybe have them each offer different quest seeds, with the intent being that DMs could use them as requests for payment when players use planar ally.

The rules index claims that there are four general traits on the center illustration (the haunted house), but my pdf does not have them. Is there a newer version with them, or were they dropped? Also, can we get the two pages joined like the center illu in Bastards of Golarion? That was pretty neat.

I have a bunch of pdf back issues in my shopping cart, but I can't seem to get to the confirmation page to order them. I see the review items page fine, but clicking on confirm and select payment method links to a blank page with a complicated URL and does not load. Are they still for sale?

At first, I noticed that two of them had a red line through the price (112, 114) and then the discount, while the others just had black, so I saved the red two for later, but that didn't work. Do I have too many?

I noticed that a lot of the NPC allies in Brinewall Legacy lean towards the CG alignment, and was wondering if that was going to be a plot element. In particular, are lawful PCs supposed to common into their own once the AP gets to Tian Xia?

Suishen sounds like it will allow some DM flexibility, but what are the main powers of this weapon?

I love the old Land of Men with Tails modules from Dungeon, and hope we get all kinds of jungle fun.

That said, I must repeat a request I've made elsewhere before: Please, not another Heart of Darkness remake! After so many over the years, a remake of one of Bob Hope's Road to &SOMEWHERE would be preferable. If you need some real world inspiration, how about those Maya ruins United Fruit restored in between shuffling banana regimes? For inspirational reading set in jungle terrain, how about, say Call it Courage? Haiti's been in the news lately, how about some voodoo legends I've not heard of yet? Punch, National Geographic, Harper's, and The Atlantic are all really old; maybe they have some actual exploration accounts from 1870-1890. Just, please, something, anything, other than Joe Conrad again.

1. If you roll a '1' on the first save for which you have the Improved version of the relevant save bonus feat, can you use your reroll on that save? Like if my first save vs baleful polymorph is a 1, but I have Improved Greater Fortitude, can I roll again?

2. How do these feats work with saves made by the DM in secret? (Improved Iron Will, I'm looking at you!) Is it used the first time a save is needed, or is it never used for these kinds of saves, or only when the die for the first save is less than 11 (or some other player-specified but unchanging value)?
