Yes, what @payn says above. Typical APs are $25 per book, with 6 books in the series == $150. This is cheaper for only $99. It's only $150 if you also want either the 5e or PF1e bestiaries.

Sadly, pdfs will be a separate purchase.

Thinking real hard about this one. Maybe will buy later as my other campaign comes towards a close...

I was running Kingmaker (converted to 5E) when the pandemic hit (and when this was first floated as something people could buy). Nearly three years later, I don't think I will re-up my cancelled order. The group found the campaign as written to be clunky and poorly paced, and while we really enjoyed the bits up to getting control of the kingdom everything after fell well short. A lot of filler, villains with no background or foreshadowing, and an absurd insistence that the rulers of a kingdom should continue to go on dungeon and hex crawls. Also the fact that the series seems to overly rely on sending in a force of level-appropriate giants to invade whenever things drag.

We loved the concept, we hated the execution. You get a lot for $100, but you're getting quantity, not quality in my opinion.

Do you normally like sandbox adventures in the OS vein? If not, then it’s perhaps not surprising this didn’t scratch your itch.

Hmm, not my experience at all. I was a player though, and my GM executed it very well. He did make a few comments about adjusting a thing or two, but said he was mostly faithful to the content.

I'm looking forward to the 1E iteration of the Bestiary, myself. Technically speaking, it'll be the tenth and final bestiary product in the 1E line (the six hardcover bestiaries, the Inner Sea Bestiary, the Occult Bestiary, and the oft-forgotten Bonus Bestiary, which was a Free RPG Day product back in 2009).

We enjoyed the sandbox hexcrawl - it was the clunky marriage to a strategic ruler sim we found less enjoyable.

When we discussed whether or not to continue playing the series, the only things my players had enjoyed were the things I had put in myself. Hard to discuss specifics without spoilers, though. Different strokes, I guess.

Edit: Probably worth underlining that this campaign was torpedoed by lockdown, so there may well be an element of bitter grapes here. That said, I still feel it is a pretty flawed campaign.
