I'm already on the list. I never played the original, so it will all be new to me. One of the reasons I never bought the old one is I didn't want the trouble of trying to convert a 3.5 OGL adventure path to Pathfinder rules. Now I don't have to worry about that.

Oh, I try to keep my gaming supplies as light as possible. I've got a bad back. I'd love to have that one just to put it on the shelf, but the extra cost isn't worth it just to have a collector's edition. I use my game books, so they need to be practical to carry around and actually run games from.

It is nice, though. Fancy-schmancy!

Bought the regular one (not the $200 one) from Amazon. They are currently saying that it's available in January though...

Yeah, that's crazy. My FLGS already has two copies that they picked up in Orlando.

I just got the massive 3" thick Slumbering Tsar print. These things are awesome, but I have to hide them (closet geek here). It's doubtful I will be interested in another giant print module. I normally run by PDF anyway.

From Amazon.com Rise of the Runelords Anniv Edition is less than $40. It should be shipping from Amazon.com around August 15.

It's simply too good a book not to get. It represents currently, in my opinion, the best value in gaming.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Rub it in why don't you. My company is reorganizing so I'm stuck here in town for the rest of the year. I'll be lucky if I can take a "stay-cation" at home. But I have a job! Can't buy Pathfinder stuff if I'm unemployed.

Who all signed your book, Az?

I agree. I snapped it up when I saw it for pre-order on Amazon. They have the best prices I've found on Paizo materials. The only drawback is that by buying from a third party or a game shop, you miss out on the free PDF.

All six authors for their words.
Laz for his maps.
Wayne Reynolds & Sarah Robinson for the art.

That is awesome, I'm jealous!

I preordered (and received) the non-suped up version. After skimming through it, it looks really cool and I can't wait to run it.

NeverTellMeTheOdds, did you order directly from Paizo, or through a third party retailer?

Just a heads up that this appears to be set to ship from Amazon.ca this weekend. I cannot imagine shipping from Amazon.com can be very far behind.

I would also point out that Amazon.com is also selling The Bestiary Box and The Rise of the Runelords Pawn Collection. You can get 'em both from Amazon for about $37.00. Personally, I would get TWO of each for about $75.00 as that provides a GM with far more flexibility in terms of depicting larger groups of foes for running encounters and provides you with more Pawn bases as well. Together with the Rise of the Runelords Anniv Edition, you can get all of that from Amazon for still less than what you would have spent on a 6 volume AP in single volume 96 page books. You are making out likea bandit.

The difference is, you will have a complete Adventure Path in a better format, gorgeously illustrated, together with about 1,000+ stand-in Pawn minis plus a generous supply of bases to run *any* encounter in the AP -- as well as most encounters that are not in the AP, too. There is no better value in gaming than this -- it's as good as it gets.
