Please cancel my AP, RPG, and Pawns subscriptions.

-Thank you-


That works. Thank you for catching and correcting the shipment as well as providing that information. That helps me a lot.

Enjoy the holiday weekend.


Hello,

I thought of another question related to this issue. Was the shipping I was charged for the cards refunded? I ask because I see in my notice for the upcoming September order that the Codex Box is being charged for shipping once more.

-Thank you-


Cool. Thanks.


Oh, how do I return the card deck?


With the September order is good enough. Thanks much!


Hello,

The second part of my order arrived today and contained the wrong item.

I was supposed to receive the Monster Codex Pawns Box and instead received the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Card Game Deck The Midnight Isles.

-Thank you-


Hi,

I have an AP subscription that still shows a status of Pending (Order 3358648).

I also just placed an order today for a couple books (Order 2578633) which also shows Pending.

I was wondering if it would be possible to combine both orders into a single shipment instead of each being sent separately.

-Thank you-

Tharian


If we remove the first Sneak Attack paragraph, then that also removes the "If a slayer gets sneak attack from another source, the bonuses on damage stack" sentence.

Should that be added back in when removing the first paragraph?


That's fantastic news.

I have not canceled (nor plan to cancel) my subscription so I'll look for the PDF in the coming days.

Have a good one.


Hi,

I was wondering if, because I've ordered the hard cover version of the anniversary edition of RotRL, if I will be receiving the PDF copy as well.

I can't tell if the product is still in the pre-order phase, but the product page says the PDF has not been released (not until Wednesday) even though others are starting to post their thoughts of the PDF copy.

Can someone please clarify?

-Thank you-

Tharian


I just ordered the hardcover because it made mention that pre-orders will also receive the PDF.

Are they still in pre-order stage?


Will this be updated to include other record sheets (like those for caravans) or with the new character sheets from the Beginner Box?

Your AP#45 was unfortunately skipped, I have place it in your side cart and it will ship with AP#47 as AP#46 has already been sent to you. If you would like it sooner go to your side cart and click ship as soon as possible.

Thank you for looking into things. I was just checking out my subscription status today and noticed the following:

Quote:

Est. Date Estimated Subtotal* Estimated Current

Shipping & Handling Estimated Total*
pending
1x Pathfinder Adventure Path #45: Broken Moon (Carrion Crown 3 of 6) (PFRPG) Print Edition, $13.99 (in sidecart)
$13.99 $0.00 $13.99
early July pending
1x Pathfinder Adventure Path #45: Broken Moon (Carrion Crown 3 of 6) (PFRPG) Print Edition, $13.99 (in sidecart)
1x Pathfinder Adventure Path #47: Ashes at Dawn (Carrion Crown 5 of 6) (PFRPG), $13.99
$27.98 $0.00 $27.98

Hmm... Sorry about the formatting. Basically, there's two rows there with one showing #45 by itself and the second showing #45 bundled with #47.

Can you please verify that I won't be getting two copies of #45?

-Thank you-


Megan A wrote:
Yes, the PDF will be available as soon as your order ships.

Megan, thank you for your help with checking my subscriptions.

Can you also check why Issue #45 of the Adventure Path is not available in my downloads as well? I'm not at home (I'm actually in WA state this week for work) to check if I have issue 45 on my shelf, though, so I will try to find that out through some other means.

-Thank you-

Will the PDF be made available at the same time?

-Thank you-

Never mind. It's already there.

I apologize somehow you got skipped in our system, our brave IT team is battling the problem as we speak. You will receive Ultimate Magic with your pending subscription.

Great! Thanks a lot. I look forward to it.

Will the PDF be made available at the same time?

-Thank you-


Hello,

I have an ongoing subscription to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and thought Ultimate Magic was a part of that subscription. However, I've not received a copy of the hardcover or PDF version of the book.

When I look at my subscriptions, I see the most recent product shipped for this subscription was Bestiary 2 and the next scheduled to ship is Ultimate Combat.

Can someone take a look into this and let me know if I am to receive Ultimate Magic?

-Thank you-


If I'm not too late, I'd really like to check out one of the One Night Stand PDFs. Specifically, The Warren of the Death Spider PDF.

Since one player in our group already has issues with spiders and a second player started to develop issues with spiders after a particular in-game encounter with a horde of tiny spiders erupting from a single source, I think it'd be fun if I can add another player to the spider list.

Thanks!

Your order actually just shipped today!

We had a few orders that, due to a bug, were set to ship with the next subscription shipment rather than shipping in August as they were supposed to (which is why yours said we expected to ship it in September). The bug has been fixed, and the orders have been correctly added to the shipping queue.

Thank you for the update. I look forward, with much drool and anticipation, to receiving the book.

Ouch... that would be a issue to bring up with customer service for sure. I feel for ya... but hopefully they can help you.

Already had done so, actually. Thanks for the advice, though.


Hello,

I placed a subscription order for the Pathfinder core rules (including the Core Rule Book). Previously, it had shown an August ship date.

However, I logged on today and now I'm seeing an estimated date listed as September 2009. Is that correct?

Please let me know.

-Thank you-

I'm crying now because of all these people who have books already. I pre-ordered and also signed up for subscription...

Yet here it is less than 3 days till release and my book has not even shipped yet. It still says "pending" on my order.

Congrats for those who have their books already.

Consider yourself lucky. Mine not only doesn't show a status of shipping for the Core Rule Book (though my Adventure Path book does), it has even adjusted from an August ship to a September ship estimate.

I'm not sure what's up with that.

Paizo folks have said they will not include Gollarion specific information in the PRPG, except for the deities list- which will not be open content.

The Campaign Setting is just about 100% fluff and no rules crunch, so does not need to be reprinted when the final PRPG ruleset comes out. In fact, the CS can work with any rule system.

Now, I know you write your own world and all, but you should look into the CS just to mine for ideas. It is full of cool stuff you can scavenge and adapt to fit your own needs and wants.

Is the CS also the book that shows the holy symbols for the deities that were listed in the PRPG Beta?

Thanks for the quick turn around on this, Cosmo. You rock!


Hello,

I ordered two of the Basic Flip-Mats last week and my order arrived today. However, I opened the package to discover that only one of the mats was enclosed. I am missing the other mat. Can this be checked out?

-Thank you-

"Warlords are accomplished and competent (competent doesn't belong here, since you already said they are accomplished, which tells you they are competent) battle leaders. Warlords stand on the front line issuing commands and bolstering their allies while leading the battle with weapon in hand. Warlords know how to rally a team to win a fight."

I don't know that I can really agree with you on this one. After all, one can be accomplished without being competent. Take a look at the pointy-haired boss from Dilbert or Capt. Brannigan from Futurama. I don't think either could be classified as competent, but each can be said to be accomplished by virtue of their roles.

Here is my first version of Pathfinder RPG alpha 2 character sheet. It has quite different design than my alpha 1 sheet. I'm not really sure what information it should contain, and what should be left out. I'm open to any suggestions =). Especially last page of the sheet is quite clumsy to use, or is it just me?

Thank you for the character sheet, Salama. Would there be any way to get the character information (name, race, class, etc.) moved to the front page? Given that I carry multiple character sheets around at one time, being able to see that information on the front page would make sorting much easier.

Again, thank you for the work you've put into the character sheets.

Right, which is why people should get Craft, Perform, and Profession for free. Give everyone four or five, so that roleplayers can get their jollies and minmaxers can just say "hey, I'm an ex-soldier so I just know some soldier stuff" and not even assign those skills.

That way everyone gets what they want and people aren't making substandard characters with wasted skill slots that annoy the other players who need them to be capable adventurers with real abilities. As a player, you should never be in a situation where other players are asking why you took "Craft: swordsmithing" instead of a skill useful to the whole party like Gather Information, or at least a skill that helps yourself like Tumble.

What's to stop roleplayers and minmaxers with the way the system is currently set up now? I think this is more of a group composition issue than a skills rules issue.

If there are some in a group that feel others are making substandard characters but others in the group are enjoying what they are playing, that's something completely different. That's a time when the players need to sit down together and figure out why they are gaming together. It's not cause to change the rules.

As an example, in the group I'm currently in, Gather Information is the useless skill and Profession and Craft have both come into play as recently as the session we had last night. I'm the newest member of this particular gaming group and have to adapt to the way the rest of the group plays. However, I'm glad I've stuck it out because learning how a group where the majority of the people are new to 3.5 (3 of the other 5 are playing in their first campaign in about 15 years) so it's very interesting to see how people without preconceptions of the game have grown into it and enjoy dabbling and exploring different facets of their characters.


K wrote:
Which is why they should be free. People who care to minmax even a little don't pick Profession or Craft or Perform.

My only concern with this is that not every cares (not even a little) to minmax. That's the beauty of the game as it stands. It can appeal to a broad array of gaming personality types. No one should be forced out of the game.


The version of the spell in the Alpha release has been changed to remove the cost. However, that doesn't change the fact that what was possible in the 3.5 SRD is now no longer possible for clerics with the Magic domain.

Regardless of the cost of the spell or the changes in how the Appraise skill works, not all groups will have an arcane caster in a party for whatever reason, be it thematic or preference.

This just reminds me of discussions in 2nd Ed that asked why clerics did not have access to Permanency when they made magic items. I'd rather not go down that road.

Instead, suffice it to say that "Just use an arcane caster" may not be the solution that actually works for some groups.

Regardless, why should a divine spell of great utility be taken away and replaced with a (dubious?) arcane spell?

Because Identify no longer works as presented in the 3.5 SRD?

Check out pages 24 and 60 of the most recent version of the Alpha doc. Magic items are now id'd by casting Detect Magic and making a skill check (Appraise) and DC = 15 + the item's caster level. This does require that the identifying character has Appraise as a trained skill.

Identify just adds a +10 enhancement bonus to that check. Since the check is Int based, anything that enhances your Int bonus will enhance that check as well.

That's all the more reason for the addition of the spell back to the Magic domain.

Though clerics already have Appraise as a trained skill, in general, most clerics will have a higher Wisdom than Intelligence. The use of the spell will give that subset of clerics a chance to be on par with the wizard when it comes to identifying items.

I agree that taking identify as a 2nd level cleric spell instead of a 1st level arcane spell is something the ferret from the Bud commercials would do.... :-)

but seriously, that's really not even close to being abusive for 3.5...

i don't think the loss of identify from the magic domain in alpha is going to break the cleric class either.

Personally, the loss of deity's favored weapon as a free feat for war domain will be missed as i usually prefer the warlike deities.

Normally, I would agree with you, but I had in mind my particular group that, right now, has no arcane caster (due to a mishap with some great cat that we suspect was of the dire variety) and the cleric of Boccob that relied on it until he met an untimely demise at the hands (fists?) of an earth elemental.

Regardless, why should a divine spell of great utility be taken away and replaced with a (dubious?) arcane spell?


With the changes in the domains and the Identify spell in the Alpha release, clerics no longer have access to Identify.

This was a domain spell allowed to those who took the Magic domain. However, in the Pathfinder release, there's no sign of Identify.

Instead, the 4th level ability gives clerics access to Magic Mouth. Magic Mouth does not exist on the cleric's spell list in the SRD. It's not allocated to them via a domain. This does not seem to make sense to take away something clerics could use for something they couldn't.

Is this something that can be examined and re-evaluated? I think it makes more sense to give the clerics, through the use of a domain, a way of dealing with magic items. And since it would come in at 4th level (currently), it would help allay the worries of those who may be like my current DM that calls me weasel for finding a way for a divine caster to cast Identify without the high cost that has been removed in the Alpha release anyway.

Thank you.

Hello,

I've got a couple issues remaining on my account from the rollover to Pathfinder. I've been very pleased with the issues and was wondering something. How can I set up an ongoing subscription to Pathfinder?

I just wanted to follow up with you. My replacement issue was waiting for me when I got home from work today. Thanks for getting that to me.

I apologize for having missed your post yesterday.

We can safely assume that your #149 is missing. However at this point if you haven't seen your #150, then it is running late (but not quite lost, yet) as well.

If you have already received your #150 let me know and I will get your replacement #149 sent out immediately. If you have not received your #150 yet, please let me know when it does arrive and I will send your #149 at that point. Otherwise, if your #150 fails to show as well, I will replace both of them at the same time.

Thanks,
cos

And this time it's my turn to apologize. I've been out of sorts with pneumonia and didn't think to check the boards.

I already did receive issue 150. That was what I used as the litmus test. Thank you for asking about that issue as well, though.

While they will usually show up much more quickly, issues going to US address can take up to three weeks to reach their destination. Three weeks from the ship date is tomorrow, so if you have not seen your issue by the end of this week, please let me know at that time.

Thanks,

Hello Cosmo,

I waited through the weekend in case it decided to show up on a Saturday, but there's still been no sign of the magazine. Can you resend?

Wow. You skip the boards for a few days and look at what you miss out on.

Is the tech job still up for grabs? Just finishing up my CS degree after getting laid off last year so I'm back in job search mode. Mind you, it would mean a move across the country, but isn't adventure what this game and place are all about?


Any idea how long ago this item may have appeared? That could help narrow down the search.

Like some of the others in this thread, I've not yet received my issue of Dungeon #139. Cosmo had asked that I wait to see if the missing Dragon and Dungeon issues arrived. The Dragon issue arrived, but there is still no sign of Dungeon #139.

Thank you.


Cosmo wrote:

Tharian,

What F2K says is correct (Thanks!), while your issues should have arrived already the fact that we had a postal holiday recently means that we need to give issues an extra week to arrive. Given your address, there is also the possibility that your Dun 139 was incinerated in the postal truck (more information here), and we are still awaiting the list of affected subscribers.

Therefore please wait until the end of next week (which is the longest reasonable time for your Drg 348 to arrive), and if you still haven't seen anything let me know via email and I will replace both issues for you.

Thanks!
cos

Thank you for the feedback. I will keep an eye on the mail an extra week. If the issues have not arrived by that time, should I respond to this post or start a new one?

-Thank you-


Both normally would have arrived some time ago.

Thank you.


Argh!!! And that's exactly in the field I'm currently studying and closely resembles what I've done in the past. I've already told myself I would finish this degree this time around first, though.
