Chapter 3: my sense of the mine was that if a fight broke out anywhere, the whole mine would be aware and charge the party. That was a bit much. Instead, I had the kobolds revolt. This is how I handled it. The sickly kobolds met earlier in the adventure were cured by the party's cleric. They were so thankful and enamored by him that he took the opportunity to convert them to the religion of Torag. Later, behind the scenes, those same kobolds went back to the mine to rally Hezle and the rest of the kobolds. By the time the party found their way to the mine, the revolt was in full swing. I set it up as an encounter of increasingly difficult waves of enemies as the cultists try to stop the revolt. I even introduced the party to Belmazog there as she had a duel with Hezle. She eventually was run off into the jungle by a rampaging mokole mbembe. The surviving kobolds hailed the cleric as a hero.

Chapter 4: the party found their way to the cultists' HQ very early in the book, before they had deactivated any pillars. They proceeded to find ways to get in. The ranger attempted to swim underneath the barrier. He became a permanent statue. Instead of having the player roll a new character, I dropped the hint that the elves might have a cure. The rest of the party then dragged his statue all the way back to the elves. They got dysentery on the way and ran into some drakes, but they made it and the ranger was cured and brought back to life.

Hello,

I am attempting to order a Lost Omens Subscription starting with the May release since I already own Gods and Magic. I go through the checkout as normal, but when I get to the last step to "Place your order", it displays Order 10448138 which is where I started the Pathfinder Adventure subscription with Fall of Plaguestone.

I've received Fall of Plaguestone already and don't wish to order a second copy, but I have not found a way to remove it from the cart and the cart won't allow me to finish the order for Pathfinder Lost Omens.

Please help me, you are my only hope.

Thank you!

While I've never experienced any issues like this, I have always felt like their ordering system is outdated and could use some attention. They spend a lot of resources cranking out new products at breakneck speed, but they don't seem to focus on improving the ordering and fulfilment process.

I wish you luck in getting your problem resolved!

Hello,

Order 15519725 was supposed to be my Adventure Path subscription and my newly-started Adventure subscription. I just checked on the status and the Adventure, Fall of Plaguestone, no longer shows up on the order. It originally did show up when the order was created last week but has disappeared sometime since then.

Thank you for looking into it! :)

I'm looking up some data on where we're at with fulfillment. When I looked at Pawn boxes yesterday, I was much more confident about how much we had fulfilled overall than I am after looking at the Gods & Magic book fulfillment rate.

In addition to inventory in early January, a couple of the products getting tied up in customs longer than expected, the snow outages where the offices were open but several of the CS and warehouse folks were stuck at home, we also had a postal holiday on Monday for Martin Luther King Jr Day, and some internal meetings and such that tied up some resources.

I just had a chat with Will and they're hustling as fast as they can to get packages out the door. 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. If you happen to fall into this category, please keep in mind that packages processed for shipping on a Friday evening wouldn't be picked up by our mail carriers until Monday afternoon.

I did let Will know how there's lots of folks waiting in particular for God's & Magic, and while the warehouse isn't going to prioritize those at the cost of overall efficiency, they'll see what they can do to get those orders processed for shipping so folks can get the PDF.

Thank you for the update!

My only subscription is the adventure path which should hopefully ship today or tomorrow. I'm really excited to be able to read the PDF for this new storyline!

It looks like one of them was processed for shipping earlier this morning and the other is currently on a packing list to be picked by the warehouse. Sorry that it's too late to combine them!

Thank you very much, Sharaya! This news is even better; no need to apologize. Have a great rest of the week. :)

Hello,

Could you please check the status of these orders to make sure everything is okay with them? I understand you can't give me a precise time frame for when they'll ship, but I want to know if anything is possibly holding these orders back from being shipped.

Also, if both orders are okay, would it be possible to combine the orders without putting me at the back of the warehouse's queue? It will save me a little bit on shipping, but I'd rather get them sooner than later.

Thank you. :)

Is there a particular reason why some of the Mummy's Mask adventure path books are going out of print when Paizo is getting ready to release the Mummy's Mask pawn set? I ask because I am fairly new to Pathfinder and I am interested in GMing APs that have the pawn sets. I already have RotR, but it seems like the other APs with pawns have out-of-print books. :(

Info mostly gleaned from Paizo responses to this question in the past:

Mostly, Paizo products don't go "out of print" but rather "out of stock" - they only tend to have a single print run, unless they're one of the RPG hardcovers (which sell enough ongoing copies to make reprints viable.) The paperbacks tend to be sold more in terms of a periodical (released monthly, then sold until they run out.)

If they're running out of stock, it's because they've simply sold out of the print run. The economics of printing usually make it non-viable to go back and do a second run, because they would have to print far more copies than they'd likely ever have a chance of selling. In addition to this, it would create unwanted competition between older APs and newer ones.

If Mummy's Mask is getting low on stock already, it shows something of a surge in popularity for that particular AP.

Unfortunately, the Pawn Sets tend to be released a few months after the end of the relevant AP. Your best bet for the future is probably to pick up an AP, put it aside for later, and then grab its pawn set once it is released. In the meantime, however, bear in mind that (as mentioned above) the PDFs of the APs will *always* be available, and I'd suggest snapping up copies of Mummy's Mask ASAP before they're gone :)

Thank you very much for this information. I'm planning to get the AP subscription to stay current, but I'd also like to get the older APs that I missed. PDF format doesn't really interest me because I like flipping back and forth between several reference books/pages; plus, there's something special to me about having the actual book open on the table. So if I can't get the entire AP in physical form, I'll probably just skip it altogether, which makes me sad. :'(

I read such great things about some of the older APs, ie. Skull and Shackles and Kingmaker, but then I get dismayed when I see some of the books are out of stock.
