Join the Evolution!

The evolution of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game begins here! The rules in this book pave the way for next year's Pathfinder Second Edition, but we need your help to test and polish them for final release. The new rules make Pathfinder easier to play and learn while still providing the breadth of options that have made it one of the most popular tabletop roleplaying games of the last decade, allowing you to create the character you want to play and craft the stories you want to tell. Your feedback will help to evolve the game even further!

This 432-page rulebook contains everything you need to create and advance your Pathfinder Playtest character from level 1 to 20, as well as hundreds of new and updated spells, magic items, feats, and Game Master rules necessary to run a complete Pathfinder Playtest campaign! Delve the deepest dungeons with a brand-new goblin alchemist hero, or convert your favorite existing characters to the new system! With gorgeous interior art from Pathfinder cover artist Wayne Reynolds and new rules concepts on nearly every page, the Pathfinder Playtest Rulebook is your gateway to the future of Pathfinder. Your next adventure is about to begin!

This deluxe special edition is bound in faux leather with metallic deboss cover elements and a bound-in ribbon bookmark. The perfect way to commemorate Pathfinder's new edition!

Terrible

*( )( )( )( )

Incredibly poor layout, making things difficult to find or look up. Amazingly dry text, making the book a slog to read through. Class and racial descriptions lack excitement and inspiration. Artwork is very cheaply put together for the most part, or otherwise recycled from past material. Disturbingly, this text is also a magnum opus of sexual and gender discrimination, only using "she" or "her" to the exclusion of all other sexes/genders.

What's worse, much of the information contained herein is already out of date!

Pass on this book.

Three hours in, and all the playtest books are already unavailable... I really hope this is a bug. :(

You have to go here

They’re being fulfilled differently (all preorders are shipping through amazon, as the expected volume would likely overwhelm the Paizo warehouse). So you don’t order them the same way as usual orders.

Also, they are printing these items based on pre-order demand, so unless the printer has placed limitations on how many they can fulfill, there is no limit to how many can be ordered.

Hmm. Some weirdness here. I can’t see the posts I replied to, nor the time stamp on my own post.

I knew most of that, but not that they weren't being ordered normally. Thank you! ^_^

So wait I ordered this on paizo.com and paid 8 bucks in shipping? -When I could have ordered it on Amazon and paid zero shipping with prime? How does that make sense?

Yeah, this is even more an issue for us out of the US.

I really wish I could subscribe to a bunch of stuff to get the free PDFs, but the shipping costs are very high. So I get pretty much everything through Amazon.
