Just warning you, even with the 15% discount you are paying more thanks to the shipping costs than if you bought the book online and bought the pdf from the site. (although you do get pdfs earlier)

Not that I don't want to support Paizo, just that I have found that their products get to me a lot later and cost a huge amount to ship from this site (even compared to smaller indie rpg teams).

thanks, but yeah I know, trying to support Paizo. I'll be switching to ad hoc Amazon purchases once the flow of products means I won't be keeping up. Even the reduced PF2 rate of publication will be to much for me, eventually

That's old info. Amazon has been turning a profit for years now. Their gross profit (revenue minus direct costs) for the twelve months ending June 30, 2019 was $104 billion dollars. Net income (which accounts for all expenses) for the same period was over $10 billion.

ha, I'd hardly call ten billion a worthwhile profit....

Wow that's pretty sweet to ozzie! I've had to delay mine until the next round of subs, as without the delayed lost omens book I didn't qualify for the 15% off. Then it's got to make it to NZ :)

Order 7942710 Pathfinder advantage discount hasn't been applied.
It also says "Store Credit to Apply $15.00", I hope that means it will be used as I'd like it used for this order.

So I just listened. Confirmed 1 action to switch grip.

Game balance wise it's completely fine. But they could have balanced the game around free action grip switches instead. I think that would have made a more fun game.

Now it's too entrenched in weapon balance, not something you can easily house rule away and keep the same balance :(

5E is the same, with a 'hand economy'and arguments about what you can and can't do wit that. Thankfully in 5E you can just ignore that, and it'snot unbalanced (tho it invalidates a feat). I hope you can do the same here!

Thanks for the information, Diego.

For the shipping of subscriptions, will you be prioritising overseas subscribers to be early in the shipping process? My books typically take 3 weeks to reach me here in NZ, and while I could tolerate the PDF for a little while before they arrive, I'd much rather read the rules from the book.

I feel your pain! But such is life in Aotearoa!

It's not an advanced screen; it's a screen for advanced GMs. Totally artwork, no information, on the grounds that you must have everything important memorized.

it is also in 4k, rather than 1080p. The deluxe, advanced GM screen is in an amazing 8k!

Hi

I've gone for 4 subs, and the AP and Campaign have not taken the PF2 start as selected. Please start them at the PF2 products. Also, it does not show the PF Advantage price on the non AP subs, if that is correct and it doesn't apply, please cancel all my subs. If that is incorrect, please apply the 15% off to the other subs.

Thanks

Thanks Sam, it looks like the sub wants to start on the 6th of the last AP and also Druma. Please confirm that if I put in an order for Sub of AP, PF Rules, Modules, and Campaign Setting (they're still called that in my cart) that the PF Advantage 15% will apply to those other subs?

The thread title made me think 'ugh, I hope someone cleans up that alchemical mess!'

It does look simple to run, but also a lot of interesting bits. I play 5E ATM, which is great fro speed and simplicity behind the DMs screen, but a lot of monsters lack any individuality/interesting stuff to do. It's a balance that is hard to get. 4E was great for that, at least, and it looks like PF2 has picked some of the goodness from there

It's been doing the same for me, with every subscription I try. Previously with the card game, now with all the 2e books. Other people are posting the same thing, so it is a system error. I'm just waiting until all the 1e stuff is gone from the subscription starting points!

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

It certainly isn't a very encouraging platform, compared to Kickstarter, of all the notifications, I received maybe one in five by email, seemingly random ones. So it didn't encourage participation, also no notify me near the end option is poor. Pre paying also sucks, for those of us not using USD, no way I was going to add on with extra bank charges.

But I'm certainly looking forward to my copies arriving, esp in a lovely slipcase! I'll look to give my PDF codes for the 1e AP in return for a charity donation, I reckon

Same here. It just charges you for the difference mach1.9pants so you have nothing to fear.

But some cards have fees per time used, especially if you're in a different country than the one charging your card.

I'm considering getting one or two of the newer add-ons but I'm going to wait until the campaign is nearly done in case there's more that I want otherwise I'm just throwing money at the credit card company for stupid fees that I would only have to pay once if they charged me for everything when the campaign closed instead of paying each time I added a new thing to my order.

This, I pay a CC fee, international fee and the cost of converting from NZ$ to US$ - CC's don't really give a good market rate for that! I didn't quite click that it was up front, just sorta went 'next yes next yes' as you do. If I'd realised I would've waited until the end. And I plain think it's not a customer friendly way of doing business, compared to KS.

Grand Lodge

The pay up front method is rather silly, I won't be upping my pledge because of it. I'm happy with the slipcase and 5e bestiary, but I'd buy a few add ons if it ran like Kickstarter

Thanks for your reply Sam, I prefer to see the process myself as I still haven't decided on purchase - shipping being key. So I will wait until the Wilderness pack is not a starting option for the subscription. It should work then!

Just for your info, I tried it on my iPad (in Safari), Chrome (on 2 PCs) & Chrome incognito mode, and Edge (which I normally don't use) on PC for the same result. So I doubt it is a cookies etc problem.

The Shipping Button 2 is grey, I'm not sure if that means anything, and the Subscription Options 3 & Place Your Order 4 are red.

Here is an image when I am in the Shopping Cart 1: Note button next to Core Set is selected, I then press the Shipping Button 2 as highlighted

Here is an image of the next thing I get to, note it has gone back to the previous starting point.
http://iforce.co.nz/i/hnobirjo.xnl.jpg

Hopefully this will help you with future problem solving/bug hunting - thanks for your help. I realise shipping is approx $40, I still haven't decided whether to go for it. I will await some reviews of the new ACG.

EDIT the approx $40 estimate for shipping that you gave me: is that for both Core and AP, do they ship together?

Thanks

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Sorry it's still doing the same thing. I click on the button next to core set. Then I click on the shipping button and it resets the cart contents to the Wilderness set + freebie card.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

How did you fix it? I've got the same issue, as soon as I go to the shipping button it resets. I've tried different browsers, same thing

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Hi I'm just looking at the possibility of starting the subscription with the Core Set, but when I select that in Cart > go to section 2 shipping it always defaults back to starting with the Wilderness pack, so I cannot see what shipping will be or carry on from there.

Grand Lodge

Good for those that want it that there is a 1E Bestiary (& conversion) book too! I'm in for the slipcase (loverly),the 5E bestiary, and hanging around for the still hidden map folio to be unlocked!

Maybe a voice of a minority here, but I would gladly pay for a well-designed, professional 5e conversion guide, even in just pdf form, for each upcoming AP and setting guide. I prefer playing 5e for its rules simplicity, but love the complexity of the Pathfinder setting and stories.

I don't think you're alone, there are a lot of Paizo fans that prefer 5e, me being in of them, and I'd be on board. It would have to be a third party, I guess, as Paizo wouldn't have the time (and expertise?) to do the conversion but they could publish it. Maybe this will happen later on down the 2e track, when Paizo have that more sorted. This bestiary is a teaser towards that!

So looking to the future do we know how often these are going to come out, like if we subscribe? So we've got the Core and 1st AP here in May, when does the next AP release, or is that unknown?

Hi

One of the biggest factors into my RPG purchases is shipping, getting stuff from the US (tho, bizarrely not UK/EU which is twice as far!) is very expensive. I'm interested in the PACG sub, starting with the core set, but when I go through the process of checking out it doesn't give me a shipping cost. Is there any way to find out what the shipping will be? Wait until it is released then add to cart then - I guess if it is shipping immediately it will show the shipping costs?
Thanks
Mach

It doesn't make a huge amount of sense when you consider the main consideration in all weapons damage is how big they are, that sets the base. Technically there are differences but from dagger to great sword is basically a scale of knives - with size being the damage differentiator. I reckon a large great sword is as different size wise from a medium great sword as a short sword is the other way, yet only one way makes a damage difference.

Nice write up and covers most what I think too, apart from three things:

I don't mind it doesn't 'feel' like PF1, I'm not hardcore on pathfinder anymore and like the game for what it is.

I love resonance because I don't like the mass of potions and and in 1E, in fact I never have magic stores in my games. Resonance is a good solution to crafting and using crazy amounts of one shot items.

And 'sleep is still a very powerful spell for example, perhaps more powerful now than ever before' what? Sleep has been totally nerfed, it is now weak in combat, imo (and Paizo's opinion!)
"A creature that falls asleep from this spell doesn't fall prone or drop what it's holding. This spell doesn't prevent creatures from waking up due to a successful Perception check, making it of limited use mid-combat." With the noise of combat you are waking on your turn, as a free action.

But great write up, i especially want to emphasise the emphasis ;) needed about DCs. A DC is set in the world is just that Pc's are more likely to encounter higher DCs in the place they adventure at higher levels. A great way to emphasise this is to put high level DCs in low level adventures. Put that DC 33 climb wizards tower in a level 1 adventure, they'll probably never get up it, but you never know the genius on players! And if they do they'll get a great sense of achievement...

...before the wizard turns them all into toads!

This seems a good way to reduce LFQW, with Fighters still just basically getting more feats. The spells are not so amazing now, and layering is harder. Sleep is non combat, fly only 1 PC and short duration etc etc. Seems like a good thing to me, spells are still cool but they're not the answer to every higher level question.
