If you GM a Pathfinder game, there's no requirement to use any subset of additional materials. You can run a game using just the Core Rulebook if you want, or just Paizo products, or Just the hardcover RPG line from Paizo, with GM permission needed for any other material, or any combination of material you're comfortable with.

Exactly what I was thinking. Also. Any system that has 10 years under the belt will have a library of material to choose from.

The PF beginner box is a great way to show a new player.

Elves grow up/mature as quickly as humans, but then they slow down a lot. You can still play a 100 year old elf who, biologically, is akin to a 20 year old human, more or less, and it's that sort of elf who is a Forlorn elf if they grew up among humans or other races that grow old and die much more quickly.
But why would an elf who'd grown up among humans abide by the elves cultural expectations and not start adventuring in her 20s?

Probably because individuals do all sorts of things for all sorts of reasons.

Enjoying the heck out of these free flowing and streaming discussions. As soon as we start editorializing these discussions, then it becomes just another polished thing. Polished is cool, but there is a much needed place for a more freeform type of discussion.

We already have official blogs and products for the polished stuff, let's leave space for the freeform. Thanks!

They said it will go up on the Paizo YouTube channel soon. That’s when I intend to check it out (I can’t stand Twitch)

Yep, usually goes to YouTube around Mon or Tues.

I don't get the Twitch hate, it is basically just like YouTube.

Awesome stream. It was good to see you guys didn't just pick the most experienced gamers/roleplayers as the game feels more "real" than alot of streams.

Everyone did an excellent job. So far I'm going to go have to go with Owen's character Qundle as my favorite so far!

This is exactly what I was thinking! Kudos to all of you for jumping out into the spotlight and playing a "real" game. Thank you!

Really digging the extra attwntion to the equipment. It does seem like this was a definite theme for this round of iconics.

By the time volume one is out at Gen Con, we'll be saying everything about the plot in that book in a sort of "GM's supplement" part. I'm going to try very hard until then to keep spoilers tight on the plot though.
So the backmatter of Hellknight Hill will include a summary of thefull AP's plot, is that what you're saying? If so, that's interesting; it would very much help avoid issues like the aforementioned Kingmaker with its villain's late appearance
Strange, my copy of the first Kingmaker adventure includes a summary of the full AP, including mention of the final villain.

I was thinking the same thing In fact, the majority of APs have the plot summary.

I have always loved adventures that allow for thematic story driven rewards that are more than equipment, but it raises a lot of questions about how specific these new feats, spells, powers, etc are going to be revealed to players and whether these things will be opened to general play, or if they will be rare/unique options that are really only supposed to exist within the specific adventure path.
Based on what they've talked about regarding how Rarity will be used, I'd bet good money that most things from a specific adventure will be Rare, making them impossible to get without either playing that adventure or convincing your GM to alter their rarity.

I hope that is the approach they take. It makes sense, and will give DMs a relatively easy way to adjudicate these various options.

Love the idea of the adventure toolbox. This sort of thing can help make the AP more of a unique experience.

Thanks, Birmy. That was always the plan. I'm so thrilled that James was available to write them and that folks are digging them.

James is knocking them out of the park!

I guess I need to go watch the video. Someone is playing a lizardfolk? It seems odd that they would allow a non-core player race in a preview game for 2e.

The "stated" goal of Oblivion Oath stream is not technically to preview 2e. Jason talks about this in the first announcement. To put it simply, they just want to have fun playing.

I am by no means saying that it is not "also" a preview of 2e, just that the preview aspect was not the stated goal.

Okay, nice story, cool art. Love a blue giant. But...

"showcasing the myriad stories you can tell with Pathfinder Second Edition"

I'm pretty sure I could tell this story with my current books?

So, you want to be critical eh? Okay, then, the announcement does not say anything about these being stories that can ONLY be told in 2e. Take a chill.

Interesting! Sounds exciting for the witch!

The CR could've been tweaked a bit to challenge them more, methinks. But if your players dug it, then great!

Curious what point-buy are the characters?

Steve,

Bring it up on a phone/tablet, stick in some ear buds, AND do your cardio :)

Looks like a lot of fun!! Looking forward to watching, even if not in real time.

I find the maps that come with the AP PDFs are just fine for VTTs. A little bit of Photoshop here and there, and you are good to go.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Card Game, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

I have used Maptool for the last 10 years or so, with Lindsay's macro set. It has been amazing.

I wish there was someway for Paizo to directly support Maptool, but honestly, with the PDFs I have everything I need with a little bit of setup.

I can only hope Lindsay, or someone else makes a PF2e macro set when it comes out.

Maptool is the bomb.

I have a newer player as a wizard in a converted RotRL game, and she just wants to get new spells. She went and asked an NPC wizard if he could teach her any healing spells. The magical essences and how they intersected with the traditions made for a really solid way to explain a mechanical limitation in fiction. Being able to tell a player "No, because we wizards use the mental and material essence and healing is largely of the vital essence" felt like a much more satisfying thing than just saying "it's not on your spell list."

It also made for an interesting avenue to explain multiclassing in fiction a bit, and the wizard has already started studying up on Sheylyn with the intention to take the cleric dedication at some point.

It's all just pretty neat. I hope the essences get worked into future publications, even if it is just setting books.

Thanks for sharing CM! I dig the idea as well.
