I hope they don't reset the numbering of the Adventure Path when the first one of the 2nd edition will come out.

Well, they didn't restart at #1 when moving form D&D to the Pathfinder RPG, so there's no reason to do that now. It's not Marvel, after all. :)

I really hope the numbering remains the same. No to the reset.

I’m a little fidgety that PF1 isn’t going to conclude on AP150. That would have brought me a sense of satisfaction. 144 is a perfect square, so all is not lost.

Still kind of bugs me that issue 150 is going to be buried somewhat in the launch of the second AP. I was really excited for issue 100 but that seemed to come and go with barely a mention on the forums. I think milestones are worth celebrating.

I'd hardly call being the Finale to the first PF2 AP being "buried". Sounds like an opportunity for some extra articles or content or who knows. Unless Paizo decides they only want to celebrate 100s.

There was a fair amount of talk about 100, but that was buried in an AP, the fourth book as I recall. More difficult to purchase as a stand alone. First or last are probably best options for stand-alones, because you're either buying a new start or a capstone to a campaign. But I'm quite happy with the extra materials and such.

I approve of your light OCD and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

It honestly kinda bugs me that the spines aren't all identical between the various APs.

I've got 1,000 (non-RPG) books in my collection and I'm forever struggling with spacing and organization. It drives me batty when publishers change cover artists for a given author/series, and the various sizes for paperbacks and hardcovers is giving me no end of grief. How am I supposed to organize this stuff if it's chaotic? Worse, I have an author whose latest book puts him one over what I can fit in a single shelf. So what... put one book on the next shelf over? Down? <Gasp> Lay it on its side on top of the rest.

Kill me now.

Paizo celebrated issue 100, it just didn’t get a lot of buy in from the fans (at least that was my perspective, anyhow. I don’t mean that in any accusatory way).

Similarly, in my experience, the finale issues never get that much buzz on the messageboards as there’s always the excitement of “the next big thing” just around the corner. The nature of the beast, I suspect (and something that would only be worse if it marked the launch of a new edition).

Hopefully, you’re right.

I feel your pain. This issue has led to various purges over the years. If I can’t fit it in neatly, I won’t own anything that person writes. Seems reasonable.

PF 100 works fine as a capstone for groups who want to end by blowing up the Death Star rather than building the New Republic.

For what it's worth, this is 100% my take on how it played out. Issue 100 was a BIG deal for us; we made it a bigger issue, put a poster map in there, and did our best to make sure the adventure and content were extra awesome. But it ended up being a non-event for whatever reason. As the author of said adventure, it was more than a little disappointing, I must admit, but not everything in life can be super, I guess!

That installment certainly ranks as super. (That whole AP was brilliant, in my opinion).

It's a lesson for me to be more vocal about what I like, I suppose. Here's me complaining about the lack of enthusiasm, but I was hardly parading around the forums with pom poms. :/

Well, I guess the jubilee my have been disappointing since adventure path instalments get reduced visibility compared to other Pathfinder products, as only GMs buy them. A big share of players, who do not buy adventures at all, probably didn't even know about this milestone.

I have played the adventure as a player – actually we just finished it very recently – and so far, it's the best adventure in what is one of the best adventure paths. As a GM I also appreciated the additional NPCs article.

I loved all the extra NPCs added in in the back for the previous APs, and the adventure itself was awesome, sorry for making enough noise.

I'll add here that I loved issue 100, particularly the adventure and the extra NPC guest stars for each prior AP (an inspired idea). Sorry for not making more of that at the time.

It was a big deal in our house. :-)

I bought the PDF of AP #100 for the extras - particularly the NPCs for the previous APs. I thought - and still think - it was terrific even though I have yet to play or GM Hell’s Rebels.
