Lending an adventure path .pdf


Customer Service


I apologize if this is not the correct message board for this question but I don't see the answer under the pdf section of the FAQ and it doesn't seem to fit Product Discussion.

I am an adventure path subscriber and I would like to convince a few others to join me in a Pathfinder game. My suggestion was running Rise of the Runelords and the person most likely to act as GM would like to read through the first 2 parts of that adventure path. If I owned the hard copies I would simply lend him the material but given that I only own the .pdf copies I'd like to know what Paizo's policy is on lending a pdf file. I certainly don't mind investing in a hard copy but I'd hate for either me or the potential GM to do so if he ultimately decides it isn't his cup of tea.

Thanks.

I am going to hold off on answering this and let our Technical Director Vic Wertz field this one.

Our PDFs do not include the right to redistribute them to others. (Note that if you "loaned" a PDF to somebody else, and they decided to redistribute it globally, you would be the identifiable source that would potentially get in trouble for that.)

My recommendation would be for you to print out selected pages for him to peruse.

Will do, thank you both for the assistance.

I'm sorry to revive this thread, if I need to create a new topic or should put this somewhere else please let me know.

Are there plans to offer Burnt Offerings in print again? I looked at the cost of, per the pdf license, printing a professional copy of the .pdf version I already own and the cost is only slightly less than the much better print versions Paizo already offers. Frankly I'd much rather turn over money to Paizo than Kinkos.

We don't plan to reprint individual out-of-print Adventure Path volumes. See this thread for some reasons why.
