All I have to say, is that I'm desperately hoping the automaton ancestry is more "Pathfinder warforged" than a redo of PF1's androids.
Androids are coming out in Lost Omens Ancestry Guide. Automatons will be very different, more like magitek constructs who can modify their bodies by doing things like slotting a sword into their elbow instead of their forearm and hand.
It's okay, you can say Warforged on the forums.
To be fair I'd imagine a dev can't actually say that, because if they said "Oh yeah, this ancestry is totally like this other copyrighted race from a well-established IP" the scary wizard from down the coast might object.
I 100% disagree. Magus and summoner are such that I want them to expand on their unique features. Giving them full casting will make them very bland. Id rather get rid of magic all together for these two and come up with interesting spell like abilities for Magus through focus points and have even better ways than most at restoring focus points during combat. Maybe even a focus spell that allows you to mimic a single target spell to enhance damage, but still costs a focus point.
A Magus with no magic and just spell-like abilities...sounds like a Warlock to me.
Maybe just me.
Ssshhhh... We are not allowed to have full class warlocks here...
Just call them kineticists and it'll be ok. ;)
Hey hey. Don't ruin my chances of them bringing back actual kineticists when they inevitably bring back psychic casters. >.>
Not sure if this has been posted yet, but for a few days now searching "adventure path" to get to the main AP page for PF2 has returned the "Sorry, there's an error, the devs have been notified" page. Any chance this is getting looked at?
Honestly, I like this approach of having the errata separate. It means errata can be pushed out much faster without having to wait the sometimes literal years between major errata releases due to book printing status, especially for books that don't sell as fast. Reminds me of 3.5.
