Will 1E products continue to be printed? I don't expect new products, but once the 1E rulebooks are soldout will there be reprints? If not the hardcovers, will the pocket editions at least continue to be printed or will I have to hunt hard copies on eBay?


If you like this edition, you should definitely get what you can while you can. Paizo's works won't be reprinted except for perhaps the pocket-sized editions. Third party published material will get harder and harder to find unless it's available on Print-On-Demand.

Heck, I would have recommended doing that while PF1 was still the current edition. Paizo ran out of hardcopies of many PF1 products years ago.

Paizo has said that they will keep pocket editions of their rulebooks in print as long as there is demand for them, but there will be no more new hardcovers printed.

This. So if you want any player companions, hardcovers, APs, module or chronicles that you want a hardcopy of. I would put this in front of pocket editions.

Note PDFs of all of these products will also continue to be sold.

For what it's worth, I do not believe that Paizo has ever reprinted any of their softcover books.

Yep. I got in late in the game, and have been trying to fill in the entire AP line. I've got about 3/4th of it. Some of the early stuff I got a good deal on Rise, Curse, Second Darkness, but some of them (like Kingmaker) are $80+ a book. :( I was wondering if I should buy multiple of the hardcovers (of the rulebooks), but if Pocket Editions will be around a bit longer, I might wait a year and prioritize finishing my AP collection.

I hope they do compilation books for an anniversary edition some day...Could you imagine a reprint of Ultimate Equipment with all items ever created, Ultimate magic, with all spells, etc?

There have been a few exceptions, but only a handful.


I would put down money for an Ultimate Spells hardback, and an Ultimate Feats hardback.

Or failing that, a single hardcover that includes all the obscure material in the APs, Player Companions, setting books, etc. I know a lot of that has been reprinted, but I have a feeling there's still a lot more out there.

I've bought all the existing hardcovers and APs that I plan to, but I'd still buy compilation hardbacks.

And as long as I'm dreaming, I'd like a pony. : /

I would also PDFs of the Ultimate Spells/Feats books, that would be a single source of every spell and feat found in PF1. An added bonus would be their original source be included in the spell/feat description.

Yes, there are websites with similar information but d20pfsrd is unofficial and I'm not fond of the search page on Archives. Having a single pdf for each to search would be best for me.
