Product Description wrote:"Twelve character classes, including the alchemist, barbarian, bard, champion, cleric, druid, fighter, monk, ranger, rogue, sorcerer, and wizard!"Did they rename paladin?! That's an interesting development!
Yeah, they turned it into a slightly more generic religious warrior with subclasses for each alignment. Paladin is the subclass for lawful good.
The special edition hardcovers will be available through all retail channels.
Can you say what channels these are specifically for the UK and Europe? Also hoping that Brexit won't affect shipping to the UK if the distributor is solely EU based. I had some trouble ordering the playtest book through Amazon last time and ended up having to cancel my order due to massive delays and uncertainty if it was an official Paizo seller. I can't wait to get my hands on these books but I can't afford to pay the import tax for American products.
Dang, I was going to wait for the 2nd printing for the real life rulebooks for the inevitable errata, but this... THIS...! (growls in frustration)
While I struggle to decide whether to cash in or not for the next 4 months, I hope this won't run out...
P.S. If I preorder this, do I get the PDF version in time automatically, too?
Will there be a way to get this edition through other stores outside of US or is the only way of getting it via pre-ordering here? I'm outside the US so shipping+customs is a pain.
Concur, its $40+USD to get it out to Singapore. My advice would be to keep an eye on bookdepository.com, that's where I get most of my Paizo hard copies.
So is the only difference between the standard edition and deluxe the cover and ribbon (well, that and $20...) or will there be additional content?
No additional content.

A question that I haven't seen asked or answered anywhere so far - will there be an option for a GenCon pickup for preorders? There are parts of this that I don't want to have to wait to get home in order to be able to peruse.
Sara Marie has said that they're yet to confirm whether they will be able to do GenCon pickup.

Thank you. I read through most of the product pages and couldn’t find an answer, so I appreciate you giving me one. I guess I’ll wait To put in my order until I know one way or the other.
One more question that comes off of this though- will the deluxe hardcover be available at GenCon, or only as a preorder?

I haven't noticed any difference between the deluxe hardcovers and the regular ones. If anything, I think I'd prefer a standard cover if durability is an issue - the deluxe ones are all one colour, so dings and scratches show up more than on the versions with artwork, Imo.
Mainly aesthetic. The covers are different but inside the text is identical.
I believe the bound in bookmark is a functional difference, but other than that it’s just the look.
What is the difference between the Deluxe and normal versions? Is it just aesthetic or is there a content difference?
Pure aesthetics. The content is the same as the regular editions in all of Paizo's special edition printings.
EDIT: Ninja'd! *shakes fist*

Will future books, in the vein of Bestiary 2, Advanced Player's Guide, and so on, come in deluxe editions? I don't want to start a faux leather collection only to have to downgrade later for the sake of aesthetics.
Based on previous precedents, it is highly doubtful that any books beyond the initial books would be printed in deluxe editions.

The problem with these deluxe rule books that they are destined to be outdated relatively soon by the first wave of errata and the inevitable reprint.
