So, I wish I subscribed earlier - I waited because I wanted to support my FLGS and I wish that was possible with a subscription but I totally get why they can't offer this through the retain stores so, instead, I've found other ways of supporting my local shop by running games. Unsubscribing and Resubscribing to skip a product is as easy as an email - no hassle, no worry. If you're going to buy multiple subscriptions to get the APs and the companions and the so on, it's totally worth it and the discount and PDF covers shipping. If I was just considering one subscription, I'd probably buy it at my FLGS. Very pleased with the products and the product line.

Everytime I think that I have every rule book I really want for a complete game system, Paizo comes up with another one that I suddenly realize I need. They know their gamers well, and anticipate their desires. Books come with plenty of packaging to insure they are not damage in delivery, and the free PDF is very handy for those reliant on Ipads and the such at the table. Two thumbs up!

Yep, just cancel your subscription.

I have subscribed to Pathfinder RPG, Adveture Paths and Companions in the past but stopped. I have always found the subscriptions great value for money back in Pathfinders infancy.

While setting up a new RPG subscrition for the Ultimate Campaign book I was a little shocked by the $57.61 Price tag for one book plus shipping+handling. I know its expensive to ship outside US but this seemed rather high.

Upon checking my previous book order (Advanced Race Guide) the shipping was only $13.60 compared to the $19.97 (-$2.35 discount)

Total Price after conversion for the subscription for me comes to £37.12 based on current exchange rates so I decided to check my local options.

RRP is £29.99 in UK for Ultimate Campaign - Amazon.co.uk offer Free Shipping.
PDF option is $9.99 which is £6.44
Total Price £36.43 a total saving of 69p
Now its not alot I know and certainly worth the cost for receiving the book and PDF early.

BUT, Amazon.co.uk are currently offering a Pre-Order Price Deal of £19.19!!!

Thats a Saving of £11.49!

I'm sorry to say this, but at that kind of saving, I can sure wait a couple of weeks to get my hands on the books. Perhaps its because of how popular Pathfinder has become that its now more commercially available.
Its a shame because I do like to show my support for Paizo but the subscription options just aren't worth it for non US customers anymore.

Add the cost of tearing your hair away over Amazon being 3 months late with the book :)

It hasn't been quite that bad for me since I started getting my hardcovers through Amazon UK (for the same reasons as the OP) but it's true that you shouldn't order through Amazon UK if you're in a hurry to get the book.


It's unclear to me what is actually on the subscription. It's pretty clear what is coming every month on the AP subscriptions, but planning for varying costs in a given month is something that I want to keep track of. Is there a list of upcoming shipments over the next couple of months? I assume that I can "bundle" ship all of my subscriptions when there are monthly shipments like I do with comics and APs.

Thanks,
Bill


According to the product schedule, there is the Bestiary 4 next month and nothing in November. Will that hold true or will there be something in November that hasn't been announced yet?

Thanks,
Bill

The schedule has been 3 books a year, one in the spring about April, one in time for GenCon in August, and the last in the fall, Oct/Nov. Next book should be in the spring, since Bestiary 4 just shipped.

The best way to keep tabs on what's coming in future months is via Paizo's catalog and schedule page. Things do move around from time to time, but they're generally pretty accurate within the next month or two.

.
All paizo subscription products release on the same day each month (the pawns and miniatures are the only two subs which dont comply with this, being from different companies). Since you're also a comics subscriber, you'll have the option of keeping those until your monthly paizo shipment goes out or having the comics ship out as soon as they become available. Assuming you choose the 'hold for monthly shipment' option on your My Subscriptions page, everything will automatically be bundled up in one shipment, if that's the cheapest option. Occasionally, it's cheaper to split a large packet into two parcels and the shipping software should recognise that and do it for you.

As a general rule, products are announced something like six months in advance (longer than that for the RPG line). I dont think there's ever been an announcement only a month or two before release.


I am new to Pathfinder (but familiar with DnD 2/3/3.5) and I am trying to wrap my head around this "ongoing subscription" offering. Since I am just getting started with Pathfinder, I think I would need to get the Core Rulebook and probably a few other books to have a good starting library. When I click on the Core Rulebook, down near the bottom of the description is a note that it is part of the Pathfinder RPG Subscription.

In reading up on the Subscription, however, it appears that it is only focused on new/upcoming product releases. I do not see anywhere in the Subscription description (try saying that 10 times fast) where it indicates that I will be (or can opt for) receiving the Core Rulebook or Beastiary or any of the other basic (or advanced) books that have already been released.

On top of that, one of the Subscription reviews mentions that part of the Subscription may wind up being small items that I may not want and there does not seem to be a way to opt out of these undesired products.

Am I missing something or not understanding what the Subscription is for? How do I receive my basic/advanced rulebooks and strategy guides via the Subscription -- or is that not what the subscription is for? Any clarification would be appreciated.

When you subscribe, you're basically telling Paizo that you want to put all future item in that product line (the RPG in this case) on preorder (and you can cancel it at any time). A subscription doesn't cover any items that were released prior to signing up for the subscription.

In your case, you'd need to buy the CRB and any other books that have already been released that you are interested separately.

(Since you're new here, it's worth mentioning that Paizo also publishes all their rules to the Pathfinder Reference Document on their website for free. Others are also allowed to post rule compilations.)

Thank you very much for the feedback, Skeld. I had a feeling this was the case, but just wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing before plunking down my dollars.

I have one more question that I hope you (or anyone, for that matter) can answer. Considering that, while I am new to Pathfinder, I am not new to RPGs in general and D&D 3.x rules in specific, is there any value in me purchasing the Beginner's Box as well as the Core Rulebook? Does it make sense to do the early-character leveling (levels one thru five) in the "basic rule set" of the Beginner's Box (akin to the original D&D) before transitioning them to the "full rule set" of the Core Rulebook (akin to the original AD&D) the way the Beginner's Box unboxing video describes, or would it be better/smarter to start with the Core Rulebook?


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

If you're already comfortable with 3.5 rules, then the Core Rulebook should be all you need. The Beginner's Box is an excellent tool to get new folks into the hobby, but is not really needed for the transition from 3.x

Hello Sniggevert. Thank you for your feedback. I know what I need to order now.

Do any of the subscriptions still offer a discount outside of the free PDF? I noticed people saying "yes, 15%" earlier in the thread, but the posts were dated from WAY back.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Yes Ravingdork.

I subscribe to the APs and receive 15% off of everything I order on Paizo.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

The pathfinder advantage discount doesn't apply to non paizo PDFs and some items already on sale with a bigger discount.

The only subscriptions with an ongoing discount are those without pdfs - the card game, the cards, minis and comics (and probably legends, when its available).

I can't seem to get my order to go through. It keeps asking me for my password and directing me to the Paizo home page. What gives?

you should probably start a thread outlining this problem either in the customer service area or the website feedback area.

Hi Christos,

When you start a subscription, you choose which item to start with, so our system will automatically put a new copy of Unchained into that order. If you do decide to start the subscription with it, just let us know and we can cancel your preorder.

Please note that we don't check these threads as frequently, so if you need for us to change your order the best way to contact customer service would be to email us at customer.service@paizo.com, post a new thread to our Customer Service Messageboards, or give us a call during our business hours. Our phone number is (425) 250-0800, and our phone lines are open M-F 10am-5pm Pacific Time.

Let me know if you have any questions in the meantime and I'll be glad to help out.

According to Erik Mona, it looks like Planar Adventures will be the last product of the PFRPG Ongoing Subscription line:

Question

This makes me sad :(

I've been a subscriber to the PFRPG from the very beginning, and I doubt I'll continue with a PF2 subscription.

Thank you for the 10+ years of fun and memories, Paizo....

I'm quite certain that the subscription will continue in August 2019 with the new Core Rulebook


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Can we get a confirmation or something here that this is the subscribtion used for PF2 or if we need to keep our eyes open for a new one?
