Is there a comma missing in your tag list, Majuba?

No... it says: "(Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Pathfinder Chronicles Charter Superscriber, GameMastery Cards, Planet Stories Subscriber)"

I think it would be better to say: "(Pathfinder Chronicles Charter Superscriber, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, GameMastery Cards, Planet Stories Subscriber)", listing the Superscriber first, then the rest that are "Subscriber"ships.

Uh...That's not how it looks to me. Here's a copy/past: (Pathfinder Chronicles Charter SuperscriberPathfinder Roleplaying Game, GameMastery Cards, Planet Stories Subscriber),

Huh, mine is missing it too.


*chuckles*

Okay.. *now* it says that :)

Thanks for listening Gary (Ross?) :)

Hmmm ...

I see the comma missing as well. To me, your tag reads:

Pathfinder Chronicles Charter SuperscriberPathfinder Roleplaying Game, GameMastery Cards, Planet Stories Subscriber

There should certainly be a comma and space between SuperscriberPathfinder, right?

Oh .... Gary?

By the way ... I'm pretty excited about this! It will be my first Paizo subscription once I do it! Paizo, you guys rock!

@ Staff Is there any news on the PDF only cost? Knowing that is the final piece of my "how to order this in the best* possible way" puzzle"!

*Fast/Cheap/Most profit for Paizo.....Not sure what order though.....

Liberty's Edge

Cool!

OK, now for some questions for the Paizo crew...

I'm still a tad confused what is included in this. I know these:

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GameMastery Guide (OGL)
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GM Screen

... are part of the subscription.

However, it looks like these:

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Bonus Bestiary
Pathfinder RPG Launch Poster

... are part of it as well? Am I reading this right?

Next question: I'm still a little unclear when each items ship. Can someone clarify please?

Last question: this is my first Paizo subscription, so I don't know if I fully understand how it works. I have a VISA ATM card attached to a secondary checking account (I use it only for EBAY / PayPal things right now) and plan on using this ATM / credit card for my new subscription.

My question is ... as a rule, I don't keep a ton of cash sitting in that account. It usually comes in and then goes right back out. So, how does a VISA Check card work with these subscriptions? Does my card get charged now for these or only when the item ships? Do I get an e-mail telling me the card will soon be charged so I have time to get cash in there if necessary or do I pretty much need to just keep cash in there all the time? In a similar vein, if an item will cost, for example, $50 ... does my card only get charged $50 or is there one of those initial higher cost hold charges assessed? I will need to know this because if I, in the $50 example, only have $50 in the account and a higher initial hold comes first, I assume the actual $50 charge could actually bounce? Does this make sense???

Thanks in advance!!!


I am now Uberscribed!

All your Paizo product belong to me!!!!!!!

Now there are a lot of new subscriptions. Can someone explain to me the difference in titles people have? I now see "Paizo Charter Superscriber," "Pathfinder Chronicles Charter Superscriber," as well as a ton of individual subscriber tags.

There is a tag for every single subscription we offer. Currently, that is the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Pathfinder Adventure Path, Pathfinder Chronicles, Pathfinder Companion, Pathfinder Modules, GameMastery Cards, GameMastery Maps, and Planet Stories.

A Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber is a Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber who has had a paid subscription since before August 13th 2007.

A Pathfinder Chronicles Superscriber is a subscriber to the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Pathfinder Chronicles, Pathfinder Companion, and Pathfinder Modules. They get a grey box around their avatar. The grey box sticks around even if they have a specialty title like a Superstar or contributor tag.

A Pathfinder Chronicles Charter Superscriber is the same, except they are also a Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter subscriber.

A GameMastery Superscriber is a subscriber to both GameMastery lines.

A Paizo Superscriber has every single subscription we offer. They get a Paizo Purple box around their avatar. Like the Chronicles Superscriber box, it persists even if the tags are replaced.

A Paizo Charter Superscriber is the same, except they are also a Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber.

oooooh, the prospect of a purple box might be too tempting. Damn you, Paizo, and your nerdy incentives to be bigger nerds.

Thanks for pointing that out! I missed that....


I guess I might subscribe eventually. Right now, it's too expensive for me.

Of course, I'm pretty pissed about the fact that I either have to pay about twice the price for the book because of shipping, or pay extra for the PDF which should be free or at least really cheap.

And it looks like the other books will be heavy enough to push combined subscription shipments over the weight limit, which means that the rest of the books are basically their own shipment, with extra shipping costs.

The Bonus Bestiary and Launch Poster are not part of the subscription. Currently, the Core Book, the Bestiary, the GM Screen, and the Gamemastery guide are the only products in the subscription.

Marc Radle 81 wrote:

Check our Product Schedule page, as well as each item description. I believe that currently, the RPG is set to ship in August, the Bestiary and Screen in September, and the Gamemastery Guide in February. (The product schedule and the product pages will always have the most recent, accurate release dates.)

A day or two before we expect to ship a subscription product, we authorize your card for the amount for the item(s) and shipping. Depending on your bank, this authorization will hold the available funds. However, this should be the precise cost, not a 'higher cost hold charge'. This is the same time we send out emails saying that we expect to ship soon. If your card does not have sufficient cash/credit available (or is expired, etc), you instead get an email saying your payment method failed and a day or two to talk to Customer Service and/or your bank and make sure funds are available when the item actually ships.

Is it just me, or is anyone else missing his Pathfinder AP Charter Subscriber Tag?

And do you at least have an ETA für the PDF price?

Hey, I'm missing several of my subscriber tags--while I've been "absent" on the boards, I've been here since the option to transfer my Dun & Drag mags over. . . sniff, sniff.

Your tags for the Adventure Path, Chronicles, Companion, and Modules line condense down into your Pathfinder Chronicles (Charter) Superscriber tag.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

You folks are amazingly fast with responses and answers. Let me try this. . .

I had $1000 around here somewhere; where'd it go?

As a quick aside, what warrants the full color purple treatment?


Pathfinder Companion, Pathfinder Accessories, Pawns, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber

Does the pathfinder advantage apply to this subscription?

If I want to order multiple copies of RPG rules, how is that handled?

Thanks Erik. Also, Darkwolf brought up a good question/scenario on another thread:

Darkwolf wrote:

Hmmm, I have a concern about shipping. I'm going to want my PFRPG pretty much NOW. but the only options available are

Hold everything and ship with the AP.

Hold everything and ship once a month.

Or Hold nothing and pay lots and lots of shipping fees.

I'd like to exclude my PFRPG subscription from holding while still paying minimal shipping fees for everything else. Think something like this could be possible? Say a 'Hold' option for each individual subscription line?

I mean imagine my misery if AP #25 ships before the 13th.. I'd be stuck waiting for #26 in September! Not a fun kind of anticipation. :(

Yeah kinda have to agree with Darkwolf here.

Maybe something like a option to hold for PFRPG line/AP line. So that on the months there is a PFRPG stuff will ship when it is out and on the months there is no PFRPG product it would revert to the AP line we currently have.

Yeah yeah i know i want my cake and to eat it too. But I know I just don't want to wait for PFRPG books, the rest I am willing to wait on to save a little shipping but not the main books, but I would wait on stuff like the screen. yeah I know.

Or maybe i am just trying to turn Gary's brain into a bubble ooze so i can suck it out with a straw.

If you want multiple copies of all products in the subscription, contact customer service and they'll set the "number of copies per product for this subscription" to however many copies you want.

If you just want multiple copies of the core rulebook (or any other individual product), just preorder them normally and select "ship with earliest possible subscription shipment."

Is there any estimate of how much these books will affect shipping cost?


Curses foiled again! I used to have some money in the bank, until I discovered Paizo. I now have subscriptions to the AP, Chronicles, Companion, Modules, and the RPG Books. Oh well, you only live once until you are reincarnated.

With you here KaeYoss. Whilst I don't mind that the PDF isn't much cheaper than the actual book (they want to drive print sales after all), I would love to get in on some of that Golem Glow and I'm intending to buy every RPG product one way or another anyways; having my shipping cost leap to $50 or whatever every three months or so is too much financial strain for the free pdfs and convenience to mitigate it.
