If you're looking for exciting and expertly crafted adventures to add to your gaming rotation, Pathfinder Adventure line has you covered! Each 64-page Pathfinder Adventure presents a short, but challenging adventure designed for 2-4 session games within the world of the Pathfinder campaign setting. A Pathfinder Adventure can be run as one-shot adventure or woven into any on-going Pathfinder campaign.

Paizo releases an average of three new Pathfinder Adventure products annually. With your ongoing Pathfinder Adventure subscription, we'll send you each new installment and charge your payment method automatically as we ship each product. You only need to sign up once, and never need to worry about renewal notice or missed products.

Aside from receiving the latest stand-alone adventures, you'll also receive:

  • A free PDF copy of each release shipped as part of your Pathfinder Adventure subscription

Pathfinder Adventures use the Open Game License and are compatible with both the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the world's oldest fantasy RPG.

By starting a Pathfinder Adventure subscription, each release will be automatically bundled with any other Paizo subscription items you're subscribed to releasing in the same month.

When you start an ongoing subscription, any existing preorders for products covered by that subscription are automatically cancelled (or have their quantity reduced by one if you've preordered more than one of an item).

Best value for money subscription

5/5

Not only are Paizo Patherfinder (Gamemastery) modules some of the best in the business they offer more information on the world of Golarion. You receive the books and a free copy of the pdf. Plenty of shipping options as well. A must for any worthy DM.




Among the best 32 page adventures I've ever read

5/5

The players are quickly trapped in a pyramid with a team of rival adventurers, and every step they take exposes them to a deadly curse. Fun, varied encounters that will challenge your players' wits. Overall, this adventure does a great, great job of turning the screws on the players -- I'm not sure if I'd rather run it or play it. Easily adaptable to other milieus.

So the question becomes the module pictured now is seven swords of sin, if I subscribe now will I get that module, or the next? If its still swords how long do I have to wait to get on-board for the next module? Thanks!

When you add a sub to your cart and checkout, you'll be given the option to start with the current volume (that's D2 right now) or the next one (U1).

One more question: Since the date for both products is simply listed by month rather than actual date, its hard to tell which one is generally shipped first. So the question is: which is more advantageous, to have Pathfinder subscription hold for GameMastery, or vice versa? If Pathfinder is usually released the week before GameMastery, for instance, it'd be better to have it held, but if it's released the week *after* GameMastery it'd be better to hold the GameMastery subscription. Anyone know which usually comes first?

We can't guarantee that either one will consistently come before the other, which is why we're letting you choose which one is more important to you. (For the next couple of months, we expect them to arrive together anyway.)


Delivered to the door and a free pdf version....Sounds Awesome!

Looks like there will be 1 a month, according to the products page.

Liberty's Edge

You might have seen this over on the Pathfinder subscription thread, but I think it's helpful here, too. So--

I have seen the Pathfinder and GameMastery Modules subscriptions as a great deal since the beginning, but a friend just pointed something out to me: with the low, less that $4 combined shipping cost, discount on Pathfinder, and FREE PDFs, I'm getting roughly $56 in products for less than $27--more than a half-price discount.

Another way to look at it, with shipping, I pay about $31 a month for both products and get the PDFs free as a subscriber bonus.

Paizo could choose to charge subscribers full price for the extremely-valuable PDFs, to the tune of $23.

Since they don't (for subscribers), I see it as a $23 discount.

Which means I'm paying about $8 a month for the whole thing.

That's a pretty sweet deal.


I have a question: If I subscribe now, what will I miss? Is there an option to get the "back log"? Maybe a deal where I subscribe now and buy all previous modules, and get the PDFs for the older ones thrown in?

Because I'd really like a complete gallery, with PDFs for each one, but paying extra for several PDFs doesn't sound sexy for me (and I really want those PDFs).

During checkout, you can choose to start your subscription with either the current Module (currently Carnival of Tears) or the next Module (Guardians of Dragonfall).

Everything older is still available, but you'll have to purchase them separately (as well as the PDFs). After all, it wouldn't be fair to the people who subscribed all those months ago for you to be able to get all of the benefits they got. And besides, we don't really want to send the signal to customers that subscribing in the future is as good as subscribing today—we really want you to subscribe today!

My problem with this is this:

I'm a completionist. I don't like having PDFs of only half the books, since the PDFs are very useful during preparation (and even during sessions, since I use a mix of books and pdfs on my laptop), but I also don't like paying twice for the stuff (book and PDF)

I understand that it wouldn't be fair to other customers to let me pick my cherries among the modules, but neither do I like having only half.

Before the holidays, there was this offer to subscribe to Planet Stories and get the older stuff for the same deal - and this made me subscribe to PS. If there was something similar for Gamemastery - even if it required me to "retroactively" subscribe from Day One (getting all the older Modules that aren't in the regular subscription instead of choosing what older ones I get the deal on), I'd very likely subscribe to GM, too. And I think that because I have to make the same commitment as the other subscribers, they wouldn't feel treated unfairly: After all, I get that stuff later than they did, and I have to put a rather large pile of gold onto the table (while they got to pay them one at a time).

But as it is now, I'd miss out on several PDFs, and so I'll probably not subscribe at all.

Is there any chance of a subscription to only the PDFs?

Sorry—it's just not in the cards. Our business model is predicated on the success of our print editions, and PDF-only subscriptions would potentially decrease sales of the print versions. That would mean that we'd need to print fewer units, so per-copy costs would go up, which would result in either A) lower margins for us or B) higher retail pricing for print copies. (And higher pricing results in lower sales, which results in lower print runs, which results in... well, you can see it has the potential to be bad.)

Yikes, that sounds like a nasty can of worms that should not be opened! Thanks for the response, though.

I'm considering renewing my subscription. Issue I need clarified:

I already have Clash of the Kingslayers. If I renew my subscription now, will a second copy be sent? If so, I can wait until the next issue is advertised. (But I also want to minimize the cost of postage, too.)

You can choose to start with the current module(Clash of the Kingslayers) or the next one.


One thing I've noticed, these modules are for low to mid-level characters (mostly 5th-9th level) and the Adventure Path's take you up to 14 or 15th level. Are there any plans for higher level modules to help round out the upper levels?

You are only charged when an item ships, at which point you are notified that the PDF for the item is available for download.

That was one of the things I talked about in the "what sort of Pathfinder Modules would you like to see?" thread. :)


Question: I want to start subscriptions for at least 2 products, but I don't want them to start until the next item is released. Do I need to wait until the picture changes to the next project? I got the RPG hardcover and a few other items at GenCon, so I don't want dupes.

D'oh! Never mind. Just saw a post in the thread I missed earlier. Looks like I pick when it start.


Approximately how often are modules ready to be shipped? Monthly? Bi-monthly? My main concern is if they come out more often than monthly (which I'm not sure if they might do.)

I believe modules are meant to be an every-other-month item. However, that doesn't mean that two might not get released in the same month when Paizo gets behind schedule (which hopefully won't happen so much now that the RPG has been released). But the general idea is 6 a year, AFAIK.

Yep—this line is on a bimonthly schedule, so even if one volume runs a month late, it shouldn't get any further off schedule than a two-month gap followed by volumes in two consecutive months.


You know what I was thinking would be nice?

When you are looking at the listings for the modules you sell, please list the authors. It would be nice to see at a glance what mods are by what authors.

Thanks. That is all

Well, The Moonscar (which was just released this month) is level 16, and Witchwar Legacy is level 17.

Liberty's Edge

I remember reading that the revamped Pathfinder modules would come with poster maps, but none of the recent ones have any. Is that no longer happening, or is it still in the future? (I also can't seem to find the post that stated this. Can anyone provide the link?)

Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

The maps (and the new expanded page count) start with The Dragon's Demand in July.

Liberty's Edge

So now this will basically be quarterly?

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Yep. We'll update the product description...


Good idea dropping that card into my AP subscription. Until now, I've always ignored the module line -- since I have little use for most short one-shot adventures -- but with the recent change, you have a new subscriber. And without that card in my AP subscription, I would not have known about the change (since I've always ignored the module line).


Vic Wertz wrote:

Vic, you were responding to someone's post (June) about this now being a quarterly line. But I see modules coming out in July (The Dragon's Demand), September (Wardens of the Reborn Forge), and November (Tears at Bitter Manor).

Did this quickly move from quarterly to every other month?? I hope not; I can't afford a sub if they're really every other month.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

The current release schedule is a result of cascading delays in the Modules line that started more than a year ago, and affected the last several 32-pagers as well.

Originally, The Dragon's Demand was scheduled for May, Wardens of the Reborn Forge was due in August, and Tears at Bitter Manor was solicited for November.

The Dragon's Demand is releasing this month, and there's a high probability that Reborn Forge will slide to October, but there's a very good chance that we'll be back on schedule with Tears at Bitter Manor in November.


Thanks for the explanation Vic. I guess I'll take my lumps for a while and hope it does indeed revert to a quarterly sub.

Will emerald Spire super-dungeon be part of the module subscription?

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Sorry I missed that question—the Emerald Spire won't automatically be part of the Modules subscription (because it's going to be more expensive than usual, and because many subscribers already have a copy coming by way of the Kickstarter), but if you preorder it and you have an active Modules subscription when it ships, you'll get the PDF for free as though it were a subscription item.

are there modules with mythic content in the pipeline?

Emerald Spire has a bit, but beyond that, it's not a major element of any modules we currently have announced.

Any chance of having the 32 page modules reinstated? I like the mini-story arcs, but they are difficult to tear apart and use individual chapters for use in my homegrown game.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Our current plans are for the 64-pagers to be the norm.

Dark Archive

So what is the next module after bitter manor and will it be released before Tendon 2014?

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Of course, having established 64-pagers as the norm, the next two Pathfinder Module releases go outside the norm... Up next is the 160-page Emerald Spire Superdungeon in June, followed by the 16-page Free RPG Day module Risen from the Sand. (Neither of these are automatically shipped to subscribers.)

I don't believe we've announced the module after that yet, but it will be back to 64 pages!

Dark Archive

How about using the module format for an "continuing the campaign" adventure for every Adventure Path?

I know lots of people who want to continue playing their characters after the regular story is over.

There is an article in part 6 of most of the adventure paths how to do that, but that is only a few pages long.

Most adventure paths end at level 15, 16 or 17 (one even as early as 13).

You could let people vote which AP they want to continue playing most and try that out.

Does anyone know how many modules Paizo has released so far in 2015? It's probably just me but it seems that the module releases are few and far between. :(

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

We had Daughters of Fury in February. Feast of Dust got caught in a sandstorm, but it will be out in October. That's when House on Hook Street should have been out; since we don't want to ship two at the same time, Hook Street will be out in October, which puts us back on track for Down the Blighted Path in January.

I think this is what Vic means. Otherwise the website info needs to be changed. Or I'm just hopelessly confused.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

D'oh! Yeah—Hook Street is due in November!


So looking at the module line-up, am I reading this right?
From nothing since February to November, December, and then January in a row?

I think you guys may be taking this whole Feast or Famine thing a bit far with your module line ... ;)

-TimD

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Feast of Dust was originally scheduled for May, but delays caused it to bump into The House on Hook Street; we had to push that title back to avoid having two modules ship the same month. Down the Blighted Path returns us to our original schedule. (Though it wasn't part of the subscription, we did also have the Free RPG Day module We Be Goblins Free! in June.)

any hopes of more regular scheduled releases come 2016? The question is not meant to be snarky or crass, I love then line and the new format has a lot of potential. I want to see the line used to the best of it's ability.

I'll echo that. It's one of my favorite Paizo subscriptions. Four a year is already to slow for me - it's a shame to see it bounce around a bit. (Similarly no crassness or snarkiness here - I'm sure paizo are more upset about the shifts in schedules than I am).

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

2 people marked this as a favorite.

As I mentioned, everything got shoved together because we plan to get back on track. The current 2016 plan has Down the Blighted Path plus three other full-length Modules, as well as a Free RPG Day module.
