We know many of you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Realm Works Content Market. We are, too! The final pieces aren’t quite in place yet, but we’ve received numerous inquiries about the upcoming content and what prices to expect at launch. So, it’s time we shed a little light on that subject. You can read the full news post about features, pricing, and content guideline submissions here!

And in-case people miss it... there's a survey at the very bottom!

The folks who still buy print copies of Paizo's stuff are going to be mad.

If this is a concrete stance that applies to all things digital (which is what is sounds like) then physical book sales will plummet. Who actually just plays with the books, paper, pencil and dice these days? Everyone I know is using something digital.

It's a really curious move... I don't even play PF but I'll munch on some pop-corn while I watch how it plays out.

Feel sorry for LW. They could cop some flack over this regardless of who made the decision.

Just looking at the current pricing, and using Emerald Spire as an example:
On paizo it is $25 for the PDF and then to buy the RW package its another $18 (I am using US dollars here ... not even looking at the current exchange rate!).

So to use the product in RW you have to have both. so that's $43US - Is that right ?

Extrapolate that out to a Rise of the Runelords or Crimson Throne where the PDF is $42, and assuming that the RW cost will be around $30 (its about 25% difference using the difference between Emerald Spire costs) that's $70. Now when I look at it in Aussie money is close to $100, makes it an expensive prospect (plus we all know that you will also buy the Herolab package as well), or you only will get them when they are on special at Paizo.

I guess its early days yet, and we wont know until its fully released if we get a bigger discount further down the line.

You also then have the question, how much is my time worth, putting it in manually.

That's my 5c (since we got rid of our 2c pieces a long time ago!), I was really holding off on putting anything in for the next AP we want to run, and just buying the RW package, but I may have to rethink that.

It take's me about 3-4 months of solid hard work to put a full sized WOTC module into Realm Works... My time is worth around that much.

As a seller of those print copies through my store, I'm not overly thrilled either. It is very FLGS unfriendly. It is sad but I know many retailers who have supported Pathfinder through the years, are now dumping the line because of their on-line policies. I won't do it but we have certainly reduced our numbers drastically.

Considering it would be relatively easy for Paizo to put a voucher code in each book, much like their gift card system, so that you could redeem the code, and then have it.

That would significantly reduce the cost.
