Journal Entry Day 2: We're hiding in a cave and have avoided detection so far. We have enough water for a week, but we are rationing our food supplies. The wizard continues to cast a variety of spells, but none appear to working in this environment. I fear we may never reach our destination.

Can anyone from Paizo provide an estimate as to when this issue is likely to be resolved?

Does anyone know if Paizo even reads these threads or if a ticket needs to be opened somewhere?

For the new folks, don't give up. Paizo will figure it out. Likely the skittergoblins found some alcohol and are sleeping of a hangout.

Not a new folk, but certainly a rare visitor as I simply don't need to download the digital assets very often. While I appreciate the upbeat attitude, Paizo's issues like this are a LONG term on-going failure.

So for the new folks, get used to it. Paizo's website is loudly and clearly telling all of us: "We hate you and don't ever plan to make this terrible site any better." Paizo is also telling its talented writers, editors and artists: "We hate you too and don't really care if paying customers are able to access your hard work."

I like the people at Paizo, but I will not alibi for them on this one. Year after year after year after year of this nonsense is inexcusable.

I am having the same issue.

I swear, on the rare occasion I need to interact with Paizo's website it is always a completely miserable experience.

What new melee attack feats in Starfinder Armory?

One of my players runs a melee Vesk upgrading to Level 7 by our next session on 8/3. They’re hoping the Armory releasing on 8/2 adds some melee-focused feats. Especially something that helps with their attack roll -they’re already doing pretty good damage.

Plan B: I recommended we could work together and invent a feat that’s mathematically in-line with RAW and narratively justified for the character.

Thanks for any new feat info!

I just like that I can be in a thread with these references and there's no need to say the source material cause we all know it.

But if someone didn't know the reference and asked, they would not be ridiculed. What a great community!

I was thinking about making 3D mini ships. Either sculpting from clay or a laminated card stock approach. Each has their pros and cons. The clay models are more fragile to breaking if dropped but take paint and washes better. The 3D paper/card approach is likely to get dirty looking after repeated handling. Actually, that might be kind-of cool looking.

Thanks for the facts AND the experienced what-usually-happens info. Since my priorities are...

  • Obtain content in any format at earliest possible date
  • Eventually own the physical materials and PDF
  • Support the Paizo community and FLGS (friendly local game store)

...sounds like the best plan is to wait for Paizo to open subscription sign-up which should get me the PDF as early as possible. I'll also pre-order physical materials at my FLGS which are more likely to be available on release date (vs Amazon) and still dodge the shipping fees.

Undecided on where to pre-order Starfinder materials. I'm new to RPG and my only Pathfinder purchasing experience is the Beginner's Box, Core Rulebook and Ultimate Equipment from my local comic shop.

Paizo direct: If I pre-order Starfinder physical materials directly from Paizo, do I automatically receive the PDF as well? Will materials arrive at my home on the day of release?

Amazon Prime: What if I pre-order at Amazon Prime? Some of the items have a discount. Will these orders include a PDF? Will Amazon ship early so materials arrive on the final release date? Are these listings sanctioned by Paizo, or some kind of speculative reseller?

Local shop: What about pre-ordering at my local comic book shop? PDF? Available on release day? Any drawbacks?

Also interested in opinions on which purchasing methods best support the Starfinder community. It's not just about the price.
