These sound like positive changes to me, but I only play Starfinder, not PF2. I will say it does seem to decrease the value of subscribing if I'm losing on the number of scenarios I currently receive for free in favor of one-shots and bounties I would have to pay for. I also agree with one of the comments above that I would like to see bounties for levels higher than 1st. Looking forward to seeing some of these new short releases in Foundry VTT as well if they're made available there.
I agree! Much better than the image issues with second release of the Devastation Ark PDFs and the Fly Free or Die PDFs. The file size is much larger, 130MB vs the 30MB or so of the others but I'll take that trade-off for the ability to easily extract complete images and select text. Any possibility we could get the FFoD PDFs repackaged this way retroactively?

That's great news, I am pre-ordering now!

It doesn't make a difference to me whether or not there is a subscription, but if there is no PDF copy included with a pre-order I probably will not buy this. I want both physical and PDF but I won't pay for the same thing twice.
I agree, all of the Fly Free Or Die PDFs have the image problem with lines of text included as part of the image and generally poor image resolution. The Devastation Ark original large file size PDFs did not have this issue but the newer updated smaller file size ones too. Please fix this, it may well mean I never run this since I mainly game online.
I agree, these are not very usable for extracting the images and using them with a VTT. I extracted the images from the non-revised (large file size) versions of 31-33 and those are fine, but 34 and 35 have the images embedded in blacked out text with nameplates in the way in front of the pictures. Might as well just grab the images directly from the PDF with Lightscreen or the Snipping Tool.
Maybe they tried flattening or combining layers to reduce the file size? I would definitely like to see the PDF generation method go back to what it was prior to #31 as well.
What program are you using to do the image extraction tricklet? I use NitroPDF.
I went back in and updated my payment method again and made sure that I had only one payment method and one shipping address and that all of the names and addresses matched 100%. Then I manually completed a purchase which prompted me for the CVV code from my credit card, which was not happening previously. That web order completed and now I notice that my subscription order that had been pending has processed successfully. So it seems like once the payment method is changed an automated order can't process until something is ordered manually to prompt for the CVV code, and the system is very picky about addresses matching the billing info, which is a good thing really. So to anyone else having this problem, consider removing all existing addresses and payment methods and start over, and then if you have automated orders you might have to go buy something like a bounty for a couple of bucks to get the CVV prompt.
Customer Service please ignore my two emails and this post referencing the subject order, my issue is fixed. Please also notify your payment people about the CVV prompt, it's a small thing really but I shouldn't need to purchase something manually to get my subscriptions working again.
I'm having a problem with the subject subscription order. I changed my payment method and now the order will not go through, the payment method is definitely valid.
I also cannot complete an order from the webstore manually, I keep getting the big red button to complete the order but it does not complete so I don't know if the website is having issues in general or if it's just me. I've tried calling several times over the past few days but I just get a message that the voicemail box is full.
I have also sent an email and replied to one of the "problem with your order" emails I've received but have not received even the automated response email back yet.
Let me know what I need to do to get my subscription order completed.
Svardi Eagle-Eye Male Dwarf Cleric of Ragathiel Level 4
A stern battle scarred dwarf with a patch over his left eye bearing the symbol of Ragathiel, a bastard sword crossed with a crimson wing. The name Eagle-Eye comes from Svardi having lost his left eye to a Griffon after his clan was forced to move to the surface of the mountain range north of Pitax in the River Kingdoms. The partial blindess explains his low Dex and relatively low Charisma. He has a deep hatred of goblin kind after his clan was forced from its ancestral home by a tribe and its allies.
This is desverendi, still working out the details of the character for the Kingmaker campaign.
