Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core RulebookJust days before the launch of their much-anticipated Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, Paizo Publishing announced that the first print run had sold out, with all preordered copies on their way to stores for an Aug. 13 release.

“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,” said Lisa Stevens, CEO of Paizo. “We have a healthy amount heading to Gen Con, but we think even those will go fast.”

Gen Con, the world’s largest and longest-running gaming conventions, will be Aug. 13-16 in Indianapolis.

The Pathfinder project began as a series of third-party adventures for 3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons but morphed into an alternative to the new 4th Edition when it debuted to mixed reviews last year. The new book is the first in a line of hardcover tabletop RPG releases. Clocking in at 576 pages and weighing more than four pounds, the $49.99 rulebook is the newest incarnation of the “3.5 version” of D&D, which had an open-source license for its rules system. More than 50,000 players have tested a free alpha release of the game over the past year.

Never fear, bold adventurers: The company says a new Pathfinder print run will arrive in early November, and a massive PDF download for $9.99 remains available at paizo.com.
