Per this posting, you may not need to do anything:
We can move the World Guide to your sidecart or it's own independent order. But if it is left in that order it will cause everything else to wait for it to be released. I believe Sam was working on moving items for those orders this morning. You don't need to ping us about it. We expect to have them all taken care of by Saturday. If you haven't got a new email confirmation by Monday morning let us know.

But since the AoA players' guide has specific backgrounds tailored for the AP, not as much a problem as I thought!Fumarole wrote:Have you considered delaying starting Age of Ages by a few weeks? That'll give you time to better digest the rules by the time the World Guide is out. If you absolutely must play 2e ASAP there's always The Fall of Plaguestone.Also keep in mind, as long as your group doesn't zoom through 1st level, you won't fully need those archetypes until the PCs hit level 2.
I am curious if they would consider allowing the Archives of Nethys to publish the Backgrounds from that book at the same time as the core rules, thereby offering them as options for those starting the AP or Module. Granted, I suspect people should strongly consider using the backgrounds from the AP if they are planning on playing the AP, so not having the world guide backgrounds seem less important.
