Between the new multiclass system and the reduced emphasis on magic items to maintain minimal competency, I think Pathfinder Second Edition may be the version that finally makes the fabled “low magic” campaign viable without major rule adjustments.
5E does that pretty well too.

In my opinion, however, martials in 5e are incredibly boring, and between PF2 and 5e there is no competition into which gave more love to martials and made martials more interesting and customizable and unique, so I think it lends itself infinitely better than 5e

These are all helpful, thanks. I think I'll be picking up the alchemical crafting feat or something at lvl 1 (humans, woo) and maybe get some use out of both of them here.

Making a polymath bard, and I have very little in the way of ideas for using a one minute limited unseen servant. I guess maybe holding some things like torches or potions, but doesn’t seem like it’s worth the slot until later levels when I can burn 1st level slots. Thoughts?

WILL THERE BE PLAYER'S GUIDES???

Of course.

Hellknight rules won't be in the Age of Ashes player's guide, but we'll have those rules out very soon. Playing a Hellknight in Age of Ashes should be interesting.

As for exactly WHAT is going into the Player's Guide... I can't say yet because I haven't yet written it. I've got more ideas in it than are responsible to include in it, of course. I'll likely aim to keep it pretty simple and short so that...

...A) It doesn't kill an already incredibly busy editorial department here, and...

...B) Doesn't overwhelm players with too many new options, when everyone's gonna still be focusing on the options in the Core rules.

I know it's a bit later on than this original post, and you can't really reveal too much in specifics, but say we want to run the first book of the AP within a few weeks of the 2e release. Any chance the "very soon" will encompass this? I would really love to let my players play one, and worst comes to worst I'll just let them play a fighter or paladin and reskin things until official rules come out. Any possible insight you could grant? Thanks!
You'll need to let them reskin.

Sounds good! Thanks for the response, and keep up the great work! I'm hyped for the new ed, and your appearances on PF Friday are always fun!
