Feeling a little sad as well as I continue working through 2e. Not liking a majority so far. Multiclassing, spells, etc. To me it feels they took alot from 5e but didn't make it better. They could have taken the saves from 5e. That would have been a nice change. Most likely will continue to buy the 1st edition mini books and play with what 3pp bring out and start converting to 5e. Although on a bright side, this gives me a reason to try a level less game. Thanks for listening to me rant. So much anticipation and I feel it was dashed.
So I just purchased the last two items on my wish-list.....a wish-list that has always had a large number of items on it for many years. It's going to be strange to not constantly look to see what is coming out....not anticipating the next months release, and realize the game I loved is no longer producing content.
I get it:-)But, our group has so many AP's to go through and with the Pathfinder Cthulhu book we're looking at a looong happy run!
We wont be playing the new system, but are hoping for someone to tweek Pathfinder (Looking at you, Stealth and Light!)
Good Gaming to all of you
I cannot recommend this brilliant book enough!
Why was a 2nd edition created when Paizo said they would never do this?
"Smells trolling" (sorry, if I'm wrong, OP!)
Paizo said nothing like that. Ever.
I'm not a fan of the new system - but nobody got cheated, or lied to -

Thanks, Joana. I'll just have to be patient

I dislike having my levels handed to me by the GM. Earning my XPs is a source of satisfaction for me and I have to feel that I EARNED each and every one of them:-)
We never let anyone lag behind the rest of the group by more than one level. Works for us - but then again, we ARE old farts. Our sons play the same way, but that's probably due to them being influenced by us ...
Thank you, Adjoint!
There doesn't seem to be much to talk about, apart from them saying that they want to give it a go and that nothing will happen for a long time.
Are you talking about one more characters? - I can't tell from your post, but I guess one?
What books is your GM allowing?
Buy point (10,15,20?) or do you roll stats?
Given how big and loyal Pathfinder 1ed’s playerbase is, there will be more quality 3PP materials produced even after Paizo stops supporting their most successful tabletop RPG. I hope that Frog God Games will still make awesome adventures for Pathfinder 1 ed. They have some of the best sandbox adventures I’ve seen and I have DMed most (if not all) of the legendary D&D modules that are famous for their sandbox gameplay.
Sounds interesting, I'll be checking those out - thanks
Both our groups; junior and senior are staying with Pathfinder.The new system will probably be alright, but just not our cup of tea - a matter of taste.
So we're buying a couple of ekstra Core books and APG while we can.

This is the kind of news I like to hear. I adore the playtest, but seeing so much negativity made me anxious for the prospects of the game. Seeing that the surveys were more positive than feedback here was a huge relief! Looking forward to those skeletons ;)
It's very hard to get people who do not like the game to participate in a playtest - so the surveys would be skewed to the positive and not giving the true picture.
Also with the entire PF1 rules material being open content and the existence of various SRDs, the concept of books as a primary source of finding out new rules is obsolete. I am the only owner of any PF books in my gaming groups, all my players just pull out stuff from d20pfsrd/aon. The days where people used only the stuff they bought and owned physically are long behind us.
Goes to show how different groups are; the two groups I play in use books: Core and AGP. AP's are bought at the gaming store. we use the D20pfsrd to look things up in a hurry, but don't consider it "gospel".oldfashoined crowd, I guess, though some are in their early 20's.
Which books do you use? I'm very interested in where people thinks "the boundary" is when it comes to which books to use - and why ...
Absolutly, I wish Paizo all the best and I'm sure that the new game will be a good one.
But, it won't be something that *I* would want to play, as there are too many changes that I don't like, changes that we were told WOULD be in the final game; bulk, skills+1/level, not starting with your racial goodies, but getting them along the way, Charisma having influence on magic items, no Abilties under 10 and so on ...
These things are dealbreakers for ME, but most people won't feel the same way and the game *will* be easier to learn for new players. That will be good for Paizo and for those who like the changes - and that I can applaud!
You are probably right, though I would love a new, cleaned up, Pathfinder - (the new game is not really for me.)
No, RPG history pretty much invalidates YOUR post.Being rude is fun - but not very productive, or polite.
Good gaming to you all:-)
Pretty much all I am doing now is buying the various APs that I like, and whatever supplemental material for each AP I effectively invest in. I have no idea if Paizo will continue selling their 1st edition APs for a while or not, and if so, for how long. Heck, I don't even know how long they will even list what supplemental books go with which AP/in any way information support their current items.
That is still a lot of material, there are so many APs that I still want to try.Right now I'm having a blast as a player in a great group. we're near the end of Book Two in Curse of the Crimson Throne.
