I'm trying to make sense of the 2015 Bundle pricing, right now it includes:
Unchained (9.99)
Occult (9.99)
Player Companion 19 (4.99)
Campaign Setting 14 (4.99)

So rounding ~= $30

If we add one more hardcover in the fall with monsters and one more each of the other book types, thats only another $20 worth of product.

For a total of $50 that costs $65...

So does HL know what is happening @ Gencon and expecting something big, or does the bundle pricing not make sense?

Well there should be 2 more hard covers. Inner Sea Races is Hard Cover plus an RPG line Monster/NPC book I would expect in late fall.

gcpeart, based on our knowledge of the release schedule for Paizo and how we'll be selling that content, we decided to price the bundle at $65. Fun fact: $65 worth of official Pathfinder packages released for Hero Lab in 2014.

This is more of a general comment on the bundle, not to anyone in particular: As we mention in the Pathfinder update announcement and the newsletter, this bundle is one of convenience (buy everything at once and it will be available for download right when it releases), rather than a "discount" or "sale" bundle.

It wasn't really clear when I bought this package yesterday, but I gather it does not include the Rise of the Runelords AP stuff, so that's an additional 25 bucks, right?

So I just gave you money in advance with no other benefit than "you will not have to purchase things separately"?

I don't know Liz, I feel when you're saying only $64.99, there's an implication of a price benefit. I really wasn't expecting to get screwed, but it seems I and everyone who purchase it did.

Well I am pretty sure that if you demand/ask nicely for your money back LW will actually do that. I have seen them do that in the past for other stuff even the Kickstarter of RW.

The emails and newsletter never said sale and based on the price it was pretty clear it was not a discount. Nor did it ever say 64.99 compared to the normal 75.00 price.

Yes, that's correct. As we mentioned in the news post, Adventure Paths like Rise of the Runelords aren't included in the bundle - we're planning to release several APs this year, so including those would have probably doubled the price of the bundle.

Hi Kaz,

We actually created this bundle because we had multiple people tell us "I want to just buy everything at once and not worry about it". $64.99 is our best guess as to how much all those packages will cost individually, so that's what we went with.

Sorry you felt like we weren't clear enough with the messaging - is there anything else you think we could do to make it more obvious that this isn't intended as a discount? (We didn't put the little "Save" icon beside it for that reason.)

As ShadowChemosh says, we offer refunds within 60 days, so if you're unhappy just get in touch with us at support@wolflair.com and we'll arrange a refund. Sorry for the confusion!

just a voice from the silent minority:
I was amongst the give me everything and "bother" me once for paying.

I'm happy with the 65$ . I guess that if they produce only 50$ of packages they'll make up for something
