Take this with a huge grain of salt as I almost never play Sorcerers and don’t think I have ever played a Wizard. Wizards are outdated and should be consigned to the derivative bins whence Gandaldore and Saurmort derived. The distinction between Sorcerers and Wizards should rather be combined into a spellcasting class that casts a bunch of different ways utilising a bunch of different sources. With the ability to heal.
Well it is one way to look at things. But only one way. And it’s a neat thesis. But again, only one. Sadly, there are about a million kajillion bazillion ways of quantifying just how godlike…gods are and twice as many that describe the provenance of their powers - the one presented in the playtest document is one of them. And they are all about as logical as the next. My favorite is the one about backwards tea leaves, dried bananas and wrought iron fish legs. But not in that order.

Who doesn’t give the primitive timetraveller here to fight space fascists a phone, or at least an ear-piece/comm unit? Sounds like inefficient use of available resources. Rookie error.
I clearly didn’t read the OP clearly enough.
Commander works. As does Strategist.
Fateweaver does not work, as it has two vowels, one that occurs three times (e), and one that occurs twice (a).
Godcaller works. And Michael Sayre likes Godcallers of Sarkoris.
Symbiote works, even if “y” is “sometimes a vowel”.
Banana doesn’t work, because it tastes yummy.
I like the idea of Apostate as having something to do with a dead god. Or Incarnate…
Psyched for this game! Will it be updated to officially include the Remaster rules once out?
Waitaminnit. Rules or lore? Will this be all about Golarion’s lore, or Golarion’s lore and PF2R’s rules? Because…they are…different things. I’m not sure knowing how exactly Power Attack works or at what level a Kineticist gets what would make someone a Lore Master.
And will be Rare.
It shouldn’t be a matter of savory or not unless you are a ghoul necromancer, or possibly a vampire necromancer. I’m not sure many beings actually taste…sweet. Some types of fruit-conversant leshy types perhaps…
Manifesting your kinetic aura tells the anyone who know what it means that your a kinetesist and what elements you have which is something you might not always want to advertise.
Unless of course you are about to meet Duchess Primproper. Important to appear ready for anything and all that…
Alternatively, for those who like Epic/Mythic/High Level play, Seneschal will be a Path, each character gets a Destiny, there’ll be a sidebar about how, handled incorrectly, Mythic play might be problematic if not broken, and a little grey haired old goblin lady works as a weaver….um…Weavers are also a Path.
For those who like magic, Spellweavers will be a Thing, who can heal a broken destiny. So there’s that. Oh, and also, seneschals.
I’m still trying to work out something pretty simple. If I get a partial boost, is it actually like I’m getting something? Or…not? Like I’m pretty sure it isn’t a boost to my attribute, and the partial thing seems like it is going to be checked in a box. But apart from that, what did I actually get? And why? Is it…chocolate flavored? That would be cool. If I have more than one partial, can I make it into a boost later? I can? In ten minutes, or…now?
I’m not sure about “bad design”, but it definitely feels like uninspired implementation, especially given the opportunity and remit of the Remaster. Sacred cows and all that.
It’s a silly “gift”. That literally does nothing. Until later. When it is a marshmellow.
Totally uninterested in the flavor text for rules mechanics. Would save a hell of a lot of space wiping them from the face of the earth. Which I always here is at a premium. Space, that is. And space is also a good place from which to launch nukes that will eradicate the flavor text. Only. Way. To. Be. Sure.
Have the mechanics be clear. I don’t need someone else to imagine what happens, and it seems that there are more cases where the flavor text is contrary to the mechanic rather than being used where there might be confusion. To me this is the same argument as folx who say they use AI to generate their character’s names. Why?
Also, I need the Gorbler base class yesterday. With Trained skill in Deer taming at first level.
Lanzborne, the Fighter [glasses the prairie with his mystical scope of ocularity] “I…see..an infinite number of…bears”.
Aeriyal, the Rogue: “Wha…bears? Owlbears?”
Schtudius, the Battle Mage: [nudges Aeriyal worriedly] “Eh-hem”.
Aeriyal: “Wha…oh, right. *koff* Umm. [restrikes confused but alert pose] “Beakclaws? Or..was it Clawbeaks? Feathergnashers?”
Lanzborne: “…Nah. Just….bears.” [frowns as he snaps shut the mystical scope of ocularity with time worn and professional tap]. “I think we can take them.”
Aeriyal: “Sure, my trusty ever repeating double flaming penetrating enervating crossbow should do the trick.”
Gaslyte, the Thaumaturge : “Or we could, you know, go around…”
Lanzborne: [looks at Aeriyal’s weapon suspiciously] “Say, aren’t you the GM’s boyfriend?”
Aeriyal: [ignoring Lanzborne] “I can fly almost all day. We can be at the coastline by sundown and the Wizard’s stonepirk agents won’t know what hit ‘em”
Gaslyte: [gestures widely indicating the pastoral expanse] “Or we could ignore them and….”
Schtudius: [in some deep thought] “Perhaps an infinite number of bears isn’t exactly an objectively ideal encounter. I mean…infinite is….big. Perhaps an illusion…”
Aeriyal: [jets upwards and off like an arrow…or…bolt] “Yee!”
Gaslyte: [sits down, hurriedly fumbles with a tome] “The treatise says there is a western path through the moors…”
Lanzborne: “Nope, bears it is.”
Schtudius: “Infinite XP…”
Gaslyte: [stops flipping pages, and covetously, fervently prays over an arachnid pendant before surreptitiously hiding it beneath their ebon mailshirt] “Surface dwellers!”

You must be joking. Clearly it is a half-Skeleton Awakened anteater. No time to be half awake.
I'd rather walk down the roads paved with pavement. Intentions make a notoriously poor building material.
See in Australia, we walk on the pavement (I guess in the US that is the…sidewalk?) but drive on the road. So it would be super weird for the road to have pavement on it, because you’d either end up with angry drivers honking their horns or multiple pedestrian fatalities.
And if the road to hell really is paved with good intentions, then it must use that Solar Freakin’ Roadways product, coz those folx made a packet on Indie-gogo, but I haven’t seen one…anywhere.
AP 206 - Having failed to stop the mysterious and ongoing disappearance of owlbears, mimics and drow the party now faces the uncanny noble sekmin, the Snekpeep. The Solar Dominator has been repurposed into the ORC cannon, an unholy device capable of replacing your favorite creature with a bland, beige coloured stand in.
Which might be great but I also vote they get the conversions right.
