Would You Buy 5e PDFs Here?


4th Edition

I've got my 5e PDFs at DriveThruRPG/RPGNow and d20PFSRD.com, but I haven't uploaded them here since I was not sure if customers here would be interested. So would you download 5th edition PDFs at Paizo?

Yes, absolutely I would. I prefer to buy as many of my gaming PDFs as possible here.

Id buy core PDFs anywhere, but sure, id DL stuff for 5E from Paizo if I was shopping for it.

Yes, plus I like doing reviews here.

I very, very rarely buy PDFs, so probably not much of a datapoint. Nonetheless, I don't use drivethrurpg if I can at all help it (I've had poor customer service from them several times and a potential security breach of my credit card details). I also don't really like having lots of different accounts on different sites.

As such, if I do plan to buy a PDF of any description, my first port of call is always Paizo.


This is where I buy my PDFs.

I uploaded Deadly Delves: Rescue from Tyrkaven (5e) and Book of Heroic Races: Player Races 1 (5e) to Paizo. I am guessing they will go live Monday or Tuesday.


I'm not very picky. If I see something I want and can afford I'll happily buy it at Paizo, or any reputable marketplace.

I realise nobody really cares, but on stumbling upon this throwaway line, I believe I was too harsh and would like to correct the record. (Which makes me feel better, even if nothing else). Although the credit card breach was real, they dealt with it well and I probably shouldn't have mentioned it.

Also, I've only had poor customer service from them once and it wasn't that bad. It was certainly not bad enough to warrant a boycott.

The main reason I'd rather not buy there is that I like everything electronic in one place.

Another good reason, at least from a publisher's perspective, for people to get their PDFs here rather than on DrivethruRPG is that Paizo takes only a 25% vendor commission while DrivethruRPG takes 35%, so we keep a little more of every purchase when you make it here rather than there.

For what it's worth, we do have our 5th Ed PDFs (and some print product) available here on Paizo.com, including two new products - the fey and undead monster supplement Beasts of Legend: Coldwood Codex (5E) and a 6th-level witch-haunted nightmare adventure The Baleful Coven which has been uploaded and should go live on Paizo sometime tomorrow (the office is closed today), though you can get it elsewhere right now!
