Well, I don't think it is actually Paizo's calculation that everybody who subscribes to Pathfinder AP will automatically also subscribe to Starfinder APs.

However, they do not want to change anything about the Pathfinder RPG for Starfinder, and reducing the number of Pathfinder APs would be a bad idea commercially, so I'm sure that is not on the table.

It is possible, however, that maybe Starfinder APs will be released more slowly, i.e. maybe one a year only. Paizo will probably have to test the waters to see how this will play out.

I'd really love to be able to playtest this. This seems to be exactly the ruleset I'd need to finally put into existence my long-hedged plan of setting Green Ronin's Freeport Trilogy on a space station.

The more this channels Babylon 5 the better.

So, for those that have adopted the Automatic Bonus Progression from Pathfinder Unchained, what are your experiences and verdicts with the system?

I have adopted it for my current Iron Gods campaign that is now halfway through. However we thought that the way the system handles magic weapons and armor was strange in the way that you have to pay for a weapon's or armor's immanent magic abilities from your attunement bonus, and so we decided to ignore the part of the system pertaining to weapons and armor.

So, I am especially interested in how the system plays out regarding weapons and armor. What are your experiences as GM, and what do the players say in this regard?

Also, how do you reduce WBL if playing an adventure path?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

They said they will be doing the Starfinder APs in addition to the usual stuff. However, James Jacobs will not be the creative director for Starfinder, that falls to James Sutter, I think.

Yeah, I'd rather see the homebrew setting from James Jacobs.

That's something entirely different.

Really? the next AP is Nirmathas vs. Molthune?

What is it called?

It "Iron Fang Invasion", and it's about a hobgoblin invasion in these counries. It'S not really a Nirmathas/Molthue AP, it just starts there.

Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

That was my first thought too. Well, hobgoblins.

Unchained 2 would be a cool announcement, actually.

By the way, NPC classes are all in NPC Codex 1 already.

PF 2d Edition

Not this year....but next year with 5E OGL.

There is no such thing as a "5E OGL." The OGL is independent of game systems or editions.

If you mean to say you expect a Pathfinder Second Edition based on the D&D Fifth Edition SRD, using the OGL, that would be possible, but i higly doubt it. If a Pathfinder Second Edition is coming some day – and I think that is still some years off – it will be an evolution of the current Pathfinder edition.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I'm guessing fall hardcover will be NPC Codex 2, Next AP will be more conventional, after Evil AP and Mythos AP. Crimson Throne is also coming, so the new AP will probably not be too similar, so no city-based AP, and probably not Varisia.

Chambers and Bierce should be at least mentioned in the AP's metaplot since they predate Lovecraft.

Considering that the King in Yellow seems to be involved, and it looks like we're even going to Carcosa, I think that's a given.

Copying the original text would require having access to that text in the first place. If I had that, I could just play with the original text, making your entire suggestion redundant.

That step is necessary for your entire suggested course of actions to make sense, but since it can't be completed without access to the text we are trying to get, your suggestion cannot be followed.

The text of the first printing is currently available on the PRD, and will continue to be available there until Paizo updates the PRD to include the errata. Liz Courts has already stated that this will not happen until PaizoCon is over, so at least until May 31.

If your character concept's linchpin is the availability of a single underpriced and overpowered item, well...


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Well not everybody plays this game to win.

I have learned from this that PFS is all but confirmed to be the devil.

I don't think you can blame PFS for anything bad here. I've seen jokes about how every martial has a jingasa , but no "nerf the jingasa!" lynch mobs.

That would have my bad guys laughing them off. "Look, it's the jingasa clown squad!"

None of that is required for a new edition, unless your definition of the word is different than mine.

I know, but there was one poster calling for such measures.

The errata problem has nothing to do with a hypothetical second Paizo RPG system, and more to do with the prevalence of organized play having more influence over products than the vocals of the fan base.

PFS is the devil.

Well the items were unbalanced in home play as well.

Personally, I don't care much for PFS gaming, but mostly because there's simple none available around here. I still buy and read the scenarios. But PFS is certainly not the devil, it is a necessity of business, of creating a need for Paizo's product. PFS is an important mechanism of PR.

Well to be honest I use the Archive of Nethys whenever I can. Its better laid out. Though I go to PFSRD for 3rd party stuff, or when the archive has not updated.

I just use my books/PDFs, and I can find everything I need to look for easily. However, I do not create PCs all the time, as I am mostly a GM, and I do not need comparison tables and whatnot for optimizing.

As far as "...do not always apply all the rules or corrections correctly" well, the rules forums show that there's plenty of differing opinions on how to apply them correctly.

No there's not. The errata documents usually say things like "replace xxx by yyy", or "strike this and that sentence", and so on. There is no room for discussion there.

Strange, I find it perfectly easy to search through my PDF collection. My PDF viewer keeps a full text index of all the PDFs and I just need to enter what I'm looking for, and I get a list of all the PDFs containing the sear term. Then I click on a book and get a list of all the search term's occurrences. Doesn't get much better.

I find the PFSRD useless for my purposes, though, especially since they (have to) manipulate names and do not always apply all the rules or corrections correctly.

Well you could buy an actual book, or PDF. Rulebook PDFs are cheap. If you rely exclusively on the PFSRD (which isn't even Paizo's site!), Paizo don't own you anything. If you don't want to pay, you can't expect to be allowed to make demands.

The spherewalker wasn't upgraded in the RotRLAE, and it's unlikely that the justicar will be updated here, especially since it wasn't actually used in the AP (to the best of my knowledge).
Thanks. Good to know.

Both of these prestige classes had nothing at all to the with the adventure path in whose volumes they were published, they were just part of the deity articles that were part of these volumes. If Paizo had intended to update them, I guess Inner Sea Gods would have been the place to find them, but it seems Paizo has no interest in bringing these prestige classes to the Pathfinder RPG. The is probably true for the chevalier from Pathfinder Adventure Path #14.

Fortification armor is literally better now. As is the Buffering Cap. There's no reason to have the Jingasa anymore.

Which in my mind is a much better mechanic than there being no reason NOT to have it.

I have seen the comments on the slowness of the PDF and am experiencing it too.

I just tried to download the PDF again and it's still taking too long to turn pages.

Has anyone received word from Paizo on a fix?

I'm a new Path Subscriber (Giantslayer) and there have been no problems with my initial PDF.

I'm a little confused why this Fury PDF is not useable.

Any suggestions?

Thank you

I've isolated the issue and the PDF should be fixed soon. An email will be sent out automatically when it's corrected.

This is still an issue, is there any possibility to get this fixed soon?

Note that this also affects the poster map PDF.

Actually, some prices were not changed, only corrected, when the table had a different price listed than the item's entry.
