This would make a nice "comedic" encounter: the party is going through a forest and hear an altercation, high pitched skeaky common versus gutural-ish common, investigating the PCs see a Barbazu surrounded by Alurians who demand a nice sum of silver from the devil. The devil was tasked with a stealth investigation of a nearby location and killing all the alurians would denounce its presence.
This Pathfinder Friday: Wanna help us make a character from the up coming Lost Omens: Character Guide?
They just want to put a lot of options that were avaiable befroe so DMs and players have a lot of options within a short amout of time, without having to wait 5 years to get what they had in 1e. They said they want to start doing new stuff, so I'm guessing they just want to get the "old" things out of the way first.
I'm fine with their schedule.
Now THIS is the main reason I'm coming to PF2e after years of dismissing 1e and playing mostly D&D: the monsters! While many people have come - primarily - for the tools that this new edition has for players I fell in love with the way creatures are presented, by only reading a creture's stat blocks you already know its history and place in the world (and also how cool they are to throw at your players). Of course I'm excited to let my players customize, with an obscene amount of possibilities, their characters to their heart's content and the 3 action system is AMAZING, but "monsters" and magic items are what gets me going while being a DM.
Can't wait to get the books next week!

Yay for contract Devils!
I probably know the answer but there's still hope: is Xenopterid in the Bestiary?

OR, that person could be so generous as troubling themselves to type all the creatures avaiable (since, I believe, a pic of ToC from the Bestiary is a no no) but that is just my anxiety and wishfull thinking!
I'm really anxious for more leaks on the DM's side of things.
W O W, I have no words to describe how amazing these sheets look! So clean and artsy!
I think it's more the fact that aside from us here in the forums, "outside" people have no idea how the game is going to work. Paizo needs to start working better on spreading the new edition and its selling points to "all the internet" quickly!
Pathfinder has a really small reach regarding online material, it's hard to find actual PF sessions on YT, when you search for it the Kingmaker game pops up more frequently than RPG sessions. What PF team needs to learn is the power of internet, they already got the equivalent of "Acq. Inc" with the Glass Cannon Podcast, now the next step should be an equivalent to Critical Role (but less boring and long). YT and Twitch are the things Paizo should focus more from now on, cause I sure wanna see these guys getting the recognition they deserve for years of hard work!
