Pathfinder Chronicles subscriptions now available

Finally! They're ready to go. Some notes about this subscription:

You'll get a free PDF of all non-card products when they ship to you.

When you create the subscription, any existing preorders for products covered by the subscription are automatically cancelled (or have their quantity reduced by one if you've preordered more than one of an item). So don't worry about contacting customer service if you've already preordered Pathfinder Chronicles stuff.

Shipping costs will vary. A deck of item cards falls into a different category than a book. Every product will be a different weight. So when you select a shipping method, the price you see will reflect whatever is the next product in the subscription.

As with our other subscriptions, when you create the subscription you're given the option of which product to start with: either the most-recently shipped product or the next product to arrive. For Pathfinder Chronicles, that means you can start either with the Rise of the Runelords item cards deck, or the Rise of the Runelords Map Folio.

You can combine shipping with other Paizo subscriptions. You can hold items to ship with any monthly subscription (Pathfinder, GameMastery Modules, Planet Stories). Pathfinder Chronicles products are not scheduled one per month, so you can't hold other subscriptions to ship with Pathfinder Chronicles. You can of course choose our recently-added option of "hold for monthly shipment," which means once a month we ship out everything that's arrived in our warehouse that month.

We're working on improving the My Subscriptions page so it knows more about which products you can expect to ship at what time, and when the monthly shipment will be. For now, the best answer is that the monthly shipment happens around the middle to latter part of the month.


Whoohoo! Thanks Big Eye!

Cool! I have subscribed. (Skipping the RotRL item cards though.)

FYI - I am still hoping there is a way to opt out of the future item cards. Other than cancelling my subscription before the future item cards come up, and then re-subscribing afterwards, is there any hope for this as an option...? They just are not my thing.


Me too (with the cards). I figure no one cares about my buying habits, but I just wanted to see my new tag in action. Woohoo!

Paizo, thank you for helping me find ways to hemorrhage my money in a new and efficient manner.


Yay! *runs off to spend money*

The only thanks I want, Mike, is to see you playing some CoH. ~grins~ But you are welcome.

Apparently more money needed spending. :) Done. And done. :)

The tag line is getting longer and longer!

On another thread, shipping costs were discussed for Australians, whereby there appear to be two categories, depending on weight: (approx) $6 or $60, and how in these cases it can be more economical to split products across multiple orders. Could the nasty situation arise whereby some combination of Pathfinder/GameMastery/Chronicles unexpectedly bump the shipping from $6 to $60, and is there any way this might be avoided? eg, for your warehouse to split orders and ship separately where it is more economical to do so?

(Awesome subscription options though, thanks!)

Awesome. I ordered. :)

I currently hold my GameMastery stuff to ship with Pathfinder, because Pathfinder is what I'm more interested in.

Hopefully Chronicles won't come out AFTER Pathfinder forcing me to hold off on Pathfinder issue delivery or worse, force me to wait a full month for Chronicles after it ships to others.

I'm thinking the same thing. We'll see once we get better estimates to the availability of the different products. The "1 package a month" option could be the way to solve the problem if Chronicles products always happen to arrive in the warehouse 1 week after PF.

It's a hard choice. I currently have GameMastery to hold until Pathfinder, but as I'm only about to begin running Burnt Offerings now, Chronicles could hold more of immediate use to my game sessions than Pathfinder issues I'm not nearly ready to run yet.

We've designed a solution for intelligently splitting orders like that, but it hasn't been implemented yet. Fortunately, we have a couple of months before it might be needed.

Actually, I just added all seven products for February to my cart (assuming you have a Pathfinder sub, a GameMastery Modules sub, a Pathfinder Chronicles sub, and a Planet Stories sub), and shipping to Australia remains at $6.86.

For those of you who are curious, that's:
• Pathfinder Chronicles: Guide to Korvosa
• Pathfinder Chronicles: Rise of the Runelords Map Folio
• Pathfinder: Curse of the Crimson Throne Player's Guide
• Pathfinder #7—Curse of the Crimson Throne Chapter 1: "Edge of Anarchy"
• Pathfinder Chronicles: Harrow Deck
• GameMastery Module J3: Crucible of Chaos
• Almuric (Planet Stories)

Yay for Bound Printed Matter rates!

Thanks Gary and Vic. You guys kick ass.

(but did you ever think about a discount or some special deal for the guy who suggested this in the first place? Maybe something simple like a custom tag for his name. That's the sort of customer service that everyone loves!)

Thanks for all the hard work!

Does this mean if I ordered 3 packs of Item Cards, that the remaining two would be included with my "Hold subscription items to ship with my Pathfinder subscription" or do I need to switch to the Once Monthly option?

Thanks Vic, that's awesome news. It's things like this which really help customer confidence. I'll be adding a Chronicles subscription soon.

Cheers :-)

Whooo-hooo!! Subscribed (with the cards)!! Awesome!!

I'd really love to subscribe. I really would. Unfortunately, I'm not DMing at the moment, and although I can see the value of the card sets and map folios if I was, I can't justify the extra expense to myself right now.

That said, I'm really interested in all the book items and it would be great if I could get the pdfs of these without having to pay twice. Is there any chance of bundling the pdf and physical books together with one price tag?

Cheers,

Big-time Kudos! Thank you for this option, and thank you for finding new and cool ways of extracting money from my bank account. =)

Best.


Yay! Now I save on shipping for all those pre-ordered items. (^O^)v

Yay! All praise those Gods Among People - the programmers who make our lives so much easier, better, and more secure by doing intelligent stuff like that.

I suggest that tomorrow will be Programmers' Day, where everyone goes to find some programmer and helps him somehow - doing small chores, giving small gifts, doing favours, certain other things (no, now what you think. Or maybe yes. It depends on what you think.

Now guess what I do for a living ;-)


Now that the PDFs and physical items can be purchased together, I'm wondering if it would be possible to just subscribe to the PDFs. Obviously, money is a concern for everyone. But my house is too cluttered and it's much easier for me to use ebooks instead of physical. Just a suggestion.
