Questions

Size? What are the dimensions for this version?

Errata? Is this the 2nd printing that fixes the first printing errata? Or is it still the first printing version?

Thirded.


I'd like to know if this will be the standard print option going forward, replacing the hardback version.

Silver Crusade

No.

I just got a second copy of the hardcover, now you're telling me I have to buy a third copy.

Well played.

Grand Lodge

Definitely need to know about that errata.

This is a new option, not a replacement. The Pathfinder Core Rulebook is now available in hardcover, softcover pocket edition, and pdf, giving you options.

And yes, the Pathfinder Core Rulebook Pocket Edition includes the latest errata, matching the second printing of the hardcover.


Thanks Aaron, much appreciated.

Would it be possible to use the credit from the Humble Bundle CRB to get the pocket edition instead?

We are not able to accommodate that.

640 pages...I assume the 6.5” dimension is the thickness LoL

Silver Crusade

Preordered from my local FLGS! Can't wait. Now to find/make a suitable leather slip cover...


will this copy have updated content with the errata?

Grand Lodge

Yes.

The Pathfinder Core Rulebook hardcover, softcover Pocket Edition coming in December, and the PDF will all include the 2nd printing errata.

The Special Editions are first printing, have only non-mint condition copies left in our warehouse at this time, and will not be reprinted.

The first printings copies were essentially gone a year after the launch.

I love these pocket editions. They didn't start doing this until pretty late into PF1. So it's cool they're starting it up already for PF2. There's even a pre-order option for Bestiary 3!

I have bought this pocket edition, even though i don't like 2e better than 1e.

Honestly, I love my current pocket editions for the other games. The form factor is just more convenient at a desk when a PDF is not immediately available. That and I love the softcover.

Is the pocket edition also being updated to include the 4th printing errata and if so, when will it be available?


A quick question, if I may? Is the pocket Editions, simply a convenience of size and cover style, but contain 100% of the original hardcover editions?

Yes.


New to Pathfinder - if I purchase the pocket edition does that come with the PDF version or do I need to purchase that separately?

They are two separate products.

If you subscribe to a Paizo product line, then you get a free PDF when the item is released. Otherwise, the print edition and the PDF are two separate products.


Thank you!


Can we get PDF versions of the pocket editions? The form factor of the pocket edition would fit on my tablet easier without having to zoom around.

Pocket editions are simply scaled down versions of the full size book, without any layout change. So a "PDF" of it would be... the same PDF zoomed out. :X

Thanks, I was hoping they were laid out differently not just smaller. Makes total sense there wouldn't be a different pdf then. I shall grumble about my bad eyes now :)
