Well damn....I better start stocking up I guess.....


The availability of things like Pawn Packs for the 1E modules ?


It's still odd that they would put two and three up....but not the first one......


Has volume One been posted yet ?
I can't seem to see it 0.O


Loving many of the new options for Duskwalkers.....but question...
The feat "Personal Chronicler" under it's "special" states "If you ever willingly consort with sahkils or undead,"....

How would "consort" be defined. Does that mean simply talking to ? making a temporary agreement ?


Can we get a little more detail on what the Duskwalker traits and feats are like ?

I'm not sure I think it's fair to say the "community" killed the game for you. Paizo has moved in a completely different direction with the game.....and that's going to kill it for those that liked that it was still grounded in 3.5. If you liked the idea of 5th addition D&D you might like this as well, as it sounds like it emulating that.

That said, those who don't want to move in that direction....are under no obligation or compulsion to do so.

It's that simple.


Personally I didn't like Mythic....at least some tiers simply got to silly. I could see an individual character having mythic (because they were fathered by a god or some such) but in my mind it makes no sense for an entire party....or multiple parties....to have those kinds of abilities.

If the goal was to dumb things down enough to capture 4th & 5th Edition D&D types, without loosing the old 3.5 types....well that's probably not an achievable goal.

I have only payed a little attention to 2nd Edition....just enough to confirm I'm not interested.


I have always found this to be the easiest to navigate...
Here .


As written....the only way it's playable is to use Kitsune to build your base form and take the feat that allows you to copy anyone you have encountered. Beyond that it requires a considerable amount of house ruling (which is what we did) to make it playable at lower levels.


I'm really liking the traits....they are very flavorful and definitely story driven. Two so far have confusing elements though.....

Accidental clone: is obviously a nod to events of Shattered Star....but states you must be human (what if a non-human is the recipient of the effect)....and that you can retain your gender (as a clone of Sorshen your gender would be female) ?

Intrigued by Thassilon: say's you can "once per adventure" take 20 on a use magic device check or activate a charged magic item without using a charge. How is "adventure" defined for this ?

Different people, but same name. The Greed one being a student of transmutation, though (AKA shapechanging) should give some suggestions about how this may have come about.

(It's a bit more complicated than that, and there was a fair amount of conflict between the two that eventually ended with Greed Aethusa getting taken out by Gluttony Aethusa; this is perhaps a story that might be explored more sometime in the future though.)

Thanks for the answer, James. I really hoped that you'd come back with a cool backstory for why the names are the same (instead of "oops, that's a mistake").

Now I hope you get a chance to expand on all the above in the near future!

-Skeld

I find it kind of funny that people think it's so odd they should have the same name....do you know how many Steve's I work with ? and that's just one factory :P


If it does show up today.....please somebody link it in this thread. The site has become a lot harder to navigate since all of the changes :P

The site seems to be running stable, thank god.

Personally i think the players guide should drop sometimes this week, fingers crossed.

My guess is Wednesday.....

I mean, I'd buy them. I suspect a lot of folk would. But you could always do a Kickstarter or the like on that to gauge preorders and how much of these should be printed and adapted to 2nd Edition.
i hope the people at RPTOOLS.net do a suitable Maptools framework for pathfinder 2.0 or im out cause the bestiary is to much of a hassle for me as a DM. i dont understand the removal of the attributes, didnt like it in Starfinder either.

I think it's a little to early to say that Sorshen is "redeemed"

** spoiler omitted **

This ^^^^

Just because she's softened her cruelty some, and curbed her tendencies towards a more politically cautious approach, doesn't mean she's suddenly "good" ;)

Could have been identical twins. Could have been that Aethusa figured out a way to magically "copy" themselves, one of them going one way, the second another ...

Or it may have simply been a fashionable name at the time ;)

Oh no?

Well I don't like attempts to overly complicate a game to appeal to basement dwelling min-maxers who look down their noses at everyone else. Isn't generalizing fun?

Alternatively, we could all trying to refrain from insulting people because they don't share our preferences IN RPGs (radical, I know!).

Interesting thing about insulting people, especially these days...as insults are highly subjective, you actually can't post anything without running the risk of insulting someone ;)

That said, I'm not overly concerned with it. I speak my opinion, and the reactions of others is all them ;)

They did say a few months ago that they were trying out the most extreme versions of the rules changes that they were considering, so it is likely that they can and will walk back many of them. But which ones? That is where we need to speak up.

They would need to walk back the whole thing....a whole lot....to recapture my interest. The direction they are going does nothing for me. I don't like the attempts to "stream line" and simplify for a new generation that can't be bothered to learn the rules. It feels far to much like a video game to me, from what I'm seeing. I'm not even really interested in looking at the playtest when they release it after seeing the previews.

It looks like you'll burn through your first level allotment of stones in a about 6 attacks at level 3. What a silly archetype.

To my mind, that's the same as saying the fighters weapon takes damage every time he attacks......

I'll have to see if the GM is willing to ignore it as well :P


So the Ioun Kineticist....

Under Ioun focus say's "An ioun kineticist’s telekinetic blast always sends one or more of her ioun stones to strike her foes and immediately return*, and her wild talents typically manifest as her ioun stones moving or spinning to create fields of energy. This alters elemental focus."

Under Telekinetic blast, it states "If the attack hits, the target and the thrown object each take the blast’s damage."

I assume this ability protects the Ioun stones from damage in a manner similar to Telekinetic Boomerang ? Otherwise your Ioun stones would be destroyed in short order.....

I'm staying with PF1.
Not interested in the direction PF2 is going.


I'm still reading through everything....but so far Planar Infusion is one of my big scores (it solves the Hellfire dilemma I was having with my Kinetics), and I'm really liking the look of Gloomblade.


Infuse Self (take the form of a Native Outsider)


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I'm loving the Duskwalker....fit's perfectly with a long term character concept that will work perfectly for the last AP.
Can't decide if I want to stick to the Slayer class concept...or switch to the Gloomblade for it though :P


Can this ability be applied to Natural attacks ?


Mighty Squash wrote:

It has nice flavour, but for the most part is just worse than a regular aether kineticist. (I do however want to play one, just for the silliness).

There are some weirdnesses in it that may cause table variation - hopefully if this is made PFS legal it will get some minor clarifications. Especially as the archetype doesn't change the fact the blast used damages the thrown objects as well as the target. Rolling good damage could leave you Ioun-stone-less and unable to do anything.

Ya, there are definitely some things that need clarification....

I wanna learn about duskwalkers!

One of the first character concept I came up with after the introduction of the Whispering Tyrant....was a soul sent by Pharasma to defeat any nemesis.....now with the introduction of this race....I can actually do this.


Can I get a little more on the Duskwalkers...appearance, maybe some hints about racial abilities ?


Claxon wrote:
I have tried to find what you're talking about, but can't find such an archetype. Do you have a link?

It's in the newly released Blood of the Ancients ;)


Any traits or feats jump out as "must haves" ?


I hope we get more information on just how the whole "Runelord" title works. For a long time I thought it was the basic "assassinate your predecessor" to gain the title....but James stated somewhere that's not exactly the case.....


Sir_Andrew wrote:


interesting, but even if you stop the regeneration for 2d6 rounds, wouldn't it just revive it after regeneration kicks back in?

Depends on if you manage to actually kill it. Once dead, regeneration does not work.


Derklord wrote:
Isn't "stuff in PF1 that needs fixing" the whole raison d'être for PF2?

Not really. PF2 is about attracting a whole new audience.

PF1 fans are going to have to just get used to the fact that they are going to need to homebrew their own fixes going foreword ;)


I can download now....but still can't save.
I'm getting the following message...."The document could not be saved. A file I/O error has occurred"

Anyone know what that means ???


So when I purchased the PDF yesterday, I could download it, but not save it to my PC (1 was getting an odd error message). Now, when I go into my digital documents, I get a 404 error message and can't even open/download ???

HELP :P


Not likely......

Thanks, Tri.

Yikes... I have a bazillion books. Horrified to think that they are about to be paperweights :(

Granted... I wont be able to read them much longer anyway, so... eh. Will keep 'em for posterity, though. Gave away some of my D&D 2nd ed stuff and BOY WAS THAT A MISTAKE.

They will only be paperweights if that's your choice. I have enough 1E material that I still haven't used to keep me going for a long time. And I can always go back to developing my own AP's, like we did in the old days.

So no need for me to move too 2E.

Hey look at it this way, if 2e flops, they will go back to making 1e material.

Not likely....backwards is not really the directions to go. If 2E flops...they will just do 3e, and it will go even further away from 1E.

So nothing new for the shifter it looks like?

The Shifter was such a flop....I don't really expect them to spend much effort going foreword on it.


David knott 242 wrote:

There is that "Personal Resistance" ability that enables the kineticist to gain the resonant powers of some (and eventually all) of her Ioun Stones as though they were in a high capacity Wayfinder. Anything else I can say would involve more mechanical details than seem proper for me to reveal.

OK, THAT's more what I was looking for :P

If your comfortable answering this....do they "have" to attack with their Ioun stones ? or can they still hurl other objects ?


David knott 242 wrote:

The Ioun Kineticist is basically an aether kineticist who psychically throws Ioun stones at her enemies (and then gets them back). She starts out with three dull gray ones in a "cloud" and can add more as she gains levels. At high levels, an Ioun Kineticist can improve the enhancement bonuses granted by the Ioun stones that normally grant a +2 enhancement bonus to an ability score.

Hm.....well that sounds rather lackluster.....

Can you give us any more ?


I'm really interested in seeing what the Iounkineticist is all about :P

That's me and my group, and I already bought enough stuff to play for the next ten years and beyond. We just started in October 2017, and we are having a blast. I have been collecting material for almost five years little by little hoping it would eventually get put to good use. Now it is.

That's more or less what pulled me out of being very upset at the news.

I'm old enough....I have enough unused material to probably get me through the rest of my gaming life ( have bought just about everything that's come out) :P

I originally had plans to still look at 2E, was trying to keep an open mind. But I've seen enough of the material to know I'm not interested in it.

wow... so many classes people have not seen - that I have PCs of.

just ... wow...

That's one reason why I have no interest in 2ndE....I still have plenty of classes I have not even had the opportunity to play yet :P

I say it again. A reboot is not inevitable.

I hate to break it to you, as I share your opinion that "Pathfinder is so critically linked to 3.5 that a reboot would be antithetical to the basic premise of Pathfinder."

However the truth is, it is inevitable.

The reason Pathfinder was based on/critically linked to 3.5, is that it was created as an effort to preserve and develop 3.5....which had many devoted followers (myself among them).

That worked for them for ten + years......however, they have now set their sites elsewhere.

All the wining and complaining in the world is not going to change the fact that they are looking to capture a different target audience than the old 3.5 fans.

Our time is done evidently ;)

You do realize you're responding to a post from 2015?

I find it funny that two people marked this as a "favorite".

Actually at the time I didn't :P


Can't wait to see what the race associated with the boneyard is like....I'm hoping for a revenant style race :P


Paladin....
