TOPIC: Pathfinder RPG sold out

Pathfinder RPG sold out 5 Years, 2 Months ago  
The 3ed vs 4ed discussion drove me towards Paizo and the new Pathfinder RPG. A month ago I did pre-order my core rulebook. Seems I was just in time. So I hope Amazon will really deliver (as cheapskate I used the free shipping). Anyhow - just 10 days to go and it will be also available as PDF - unfortunately I will be on holiday and I'm not sure my iPhone will cope with the file if I send it to my mailbox for reading.

Maybe others here are interested as well. Whatever good news there are for a new RPG system should be long term good news for DF as well.

Ten days before the launch of their much-anticipated Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, Paizo Publishing today announced that the first print run of the book has sold out, with all preordered copies on their way to stores for an August 13 release. With preorders more than five times greater than for any previous product in Paizo's seven-year history, orders for the Core Rulebook continue to mount even as the company speeds to produce another print run. Paizo.com has retained enough copies to handle all paizo.com subscriptions and pre-orders. Customers who have not already placed a pre-order with paizo.com or their game or book retailer are encouraged to seek out a copy immediately following the book's retail release, as supplies are expected to run out well before the arrival of a second print run in early November.

"We thought we had printed enough to last us at least until the end of this year, but skyrocketing demand from our customers and distributors has us reprinting already," Lisa Stevens, CEO of Paizo said. "We have a healthy amount heading to Gen Con, but we think even those will go fast, so don't delay in picking up your copy!"

The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook is the first release in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game line of hardcover tabletop RPG rulebooks. Clocking in at a whopping 576 pages and at a weight of more than four pounds, this $49.99 rulebook is the newest incarnation of the 3.5 version of the world's best-selling roleplaying game. Playtested by more than 50,000 players over the last year, the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook is the most hotly anticipated tabletop RPG release of 2009. A massive electronic download file ($9.99) will remain available at paizo.com.

"The phenomenal support of the constantly growing community of Pathfinder RPG players has been a staggering sight to behold," said Paizo Publisher Erik Mona. "To sell out a hugely ambitious print run before the release date just goes to show what an immense audience this game will enjoy in the years to come."

The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook can be found wherever gaming products are sold or can be purchased directly from Paizo Publishing via paizo.com.

Probably a little bit late now (unless you are lucky and a FLGS has it pre-stocked). Yes $50 is a lot for a rule book - but it is 576 pages and apart of the bestiary all you need as player and GM.

Anyhow - there is (still) the beta version as pdf to try for free. And this is the only one you get right now until GenCon.

BTW, I'm running a pathfinder game at Con-Quest in Santa Clara over Labor Day weekend. I may even have it set in a RoTA DF layout, if I have time to make a new adventure. Otherwise, I'm converting an ancient 1st ed adventure I wrote 20 years ago...
