2e PDFs before GenCon


Pathfinder Second Edition General Discussion

I'm very excited to play 2e, but I am -NOT- excited to lug this printed doorstop of a rulebook around a convention. Why are the PDF's not available BEFORE GenCon?

Seconded. But it's more because the global area where I live will be August 2 when the Paizo office hits 9:00 AM August 1, so I am doomed to get it a day later (scientifically not, but it's that cheated feeling that's important for me)...

As a fellow future-dwelling person I feel your pain.

I hope I sleep the night of August 1 but there is a 50/50 chance I'll stay up and click refresh every 15 seconds until it's out and once I have them PDFs I'm not sleeping until I've read at least all of the class feats.

...and that is why the servers crashed, your honor.


Don't they drop at midnight PST?

I thought the playtest dropped 8 am PDT so they had somebody onsite in case things went wrong.


When starfinder dropped it was about 8pm est, I took a day off, that was a mistake

this time I take off the day after and just go to work that day, less time to wait and less frustration for me

I believe PDFs go live when the doors open at GenCon, which is 10 AM Eastern Daylight Time.

That's what I remember too. I don't have a link though.

I do hope Paizo has bulked up the server farm a bit...

I believe that their PDF delivery system is cloud-hosted on AWS nowadays, so there should be no problem there. They just need to turn the dial up to 11 for a few hours.

That is the time that 2e.aonprd.com gave for going live.
