Is there still a touch AC or touch attack in Pathfinder 2?
I can not find any rules about it, but it is shown on the pregenerated Society character sheets.

Each character gets three actions per round.

Is it possible to cast 3 different spells in one round?
Is it possible to cast a spell and make a melee attack in the same round (strike)?

Is it the same for focus spells?

Why is the spellcasting not listed in the possible actions in the reaction list?

Thanks for help.

Is the "Lost Omen" a new Age or just the continuation of the 1. Edition Age?
What is the current year? Did Paizo advance the timeline?
Is there an overview what has changed?

Is it correct that each character class can get three attacks per round at first level and there are no extra attacks at higher levels?

How is two-weapon fighting handled?

Is it more easy now to interrupt a spellcaster?

Following situation in an asian inspired jade empire adventure:

1. there is a small island with two cities. It was an island long ago used for training of military troops.
regent of city A lets murder the regent of city B by Ninjas.

What could be the motivation to kill the regent of city B? I am looking for something interesting. Just to gain control over the whole region is a bit boring.

2. the story should involve a dungeon adventure. Does anyone has an idea how to connect the murder case with a dungeon exploration?

3. What should be special elements or situations for a jade empire dungeon crawl?

Thanks for help.

Im searching for new inspirations and adventure ideas for a Jade Empire campaign.

Do you have any nice adventure hooks or campaign ideas?

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

I wonder which role the Government plays in the adventure. I can only find, that the government is a council. Does it mainly consist of the Pharasma church? All major decisions seem to be done by the temple priests. What are the council members?

I have a question concerning the "Feral mutagen" of the Alchemist.

Lets suppose the Alchemist has +6/+1 Base Attack.

What are the attack boni for claw 1, claw 2 and bite? Is it +6/+6/+6 ?

Do there any rules for two weapon fighting apply?

In my plot a major priest of Adabar has to be murdered.

This should be a major plot hook. Adventure location is Osirion. Do you have an exciting idea about a plot scheme?

Who could be the murderer and why is the Adabar priest killed?

E.g. just the successor of the priest, the evil uncle, opposed religion would be boring. Maybe you have some cool ideas.


Where do I find informations about the Storval Plateau and the Cinderlands?

Is there a way from the lowlands to the Plateau apart from the Storval Stairs?

Thanks for help.

Is there a final decision about the starting hit points? Which of the options is in the alpha version?

In my opinion Barbarians power Surprise Accuracy is overpowered.

Is there an errata about the skill?

Consider a Barabarian with high consti score (20+) and 10 level. In principal you can make a +10 attack roll each round.

How many skill points does one get at 1. level?

The statement in the book is rather cryptic.

"At first level, your character gains a number of skill
points dependent upon your class plus your Intelligence

Taking a look at the classes, there is only a statement of gaining skill points for new levels.

I just want to thank the Pathfinder team for keeping D&D alive.

D&D4E is not a bad game, but its juvenile und WoC merciless dismissed all old school gamers. The D&D-Insider is another kick in the face.

I like the fluff quality of the books, the friendliness of the authors and the absence of arrogance (compared to the WoC-tyranny-of-fun and 4Ed-is- best-mindset).

Hopefully there will be some Pathfinder novels (the short stories dont make it for me).

And hopefully you will release more regional settings (like in the TSR Birthright setting).

Best wishes.

I am a big Pathfinder fan, but there are some thinks I dont like
in the Pathfinder setting.

- The doctors degree. There are some NPCs with a doctor degree but no explanation where it comes from or how it is gained.
Is it a Phd? a MD? Are there universities in Golarion?
IMO a doctor degree does not fit in a fantasy campaign world.

- gunpowder

- Golarion in campaign chronicles setting:
too fragmented, too many things and themes.
One Chinese area, one agypt area, one pirate area, one
ravenloft area, one africa area, eberron machines etc. its nice but
it fails to give the world an idendity.
The campaign book tries to have a finger in every pie, too much is too much.

- Worst of all: the names. They sound awful for europeans.
E.g. there are some names that sound slavish, latin, german, greek.
Combinations of surname and forename are awful.
"Noleski Surtova" the ruler of Brevoy is a combination of polish and czech. It is clearly a female name and sound silly for european ears.
Augustana of Andoran sound like a figure in an Asterix comic.
Why Baba Yaga? It is a famous myth in russia. Ilepodus from Thuvia
sounds like a joke in latin.
I would prefer are more Tolkien-like-style.

- the statue of liberty on page 200 seems a bit misplaced for europeans.

- Dont make the same mistake like WoC. The introduction is a bit like to overegg the pudding. WoC says permanently "4E is the best".
Dont fall into the same habbit.

Anyway thanks for the good work.

Does anybody know when exactly the Pathfinder Campaign Setting and Pathfinder Alpha RPG will be released? I can only find August or GenCon as dates.

Thanks for help.

Are there any novels planned for the Pathfinder world?

I think some supporting novels would be a great addition to the pathfinder world and could bring a lot of background flair (as seen with Eberron).

Does anyone has experience with limiting the number of Prestigeclasses a character can take?


- a character can only take 1 or 2 PrCs
- the character has to finish the levels in each PrC

Is it worth the effort and trouble with players?

Does anyone have experience with the ABjurant Champion? Is the PrC broken?

Thnaks for help.

3.5. Bard focused on supporting other pcs. thats nonsense.

How about exclusive spells for bards with exclusive spell compontents like "music". How about music checks or instrument checks for spells?

How about sonic damage spells?

What bugs me of the 3.5 ability scores is that they are linear distributed.

In addition you need 2 ability points to increase the bonus.

Why this linearity? The world is exponential and nonlinear!

Proposal: I) A nonlinear progression for ability scores. A peak in
the middle and a decrease of improvement after 18 - it should be hard to get better if your are on the top.
II) two different modifiers for different tasks (like 2.Ed)

score / modifier
12 +0
13 +1
14 +2
15 +3
16 +4
17 +5
18 +6
19 +6
20 +7
21 +7
22 +7

I love the idea of a Pathfinder RPG. However unfortunately there are only
three classes included.

Important classes like druid, bard, sorcerer are missing. IMHO playtest is so far not really possible because the Pathfinder classes are not compatible with 3.5.

What do you think? Please release the missing classes soon.

If Thassilon was so mighty, why have they been only in Varisia?

Does that make sense?

I have some questions to the Golarion setting. Since I have the Pathfinder magazine only fragmentary so far (1-5) there are some open problems.

- Where exactly was Thassilon? Was it in complete Golarion or only in Varasia?

- Where is the 'arabic' race (cover pathfinder 4) and are there some information about them?

- There seems to be a chinese/japanese race according to some NPC names (pathfinder 1). There are they from?

Thanks for help.

Wie funktioniert die Pathfinder Bestellung nach Deutschland? Wird mit Kreditkarte abgerechnet? Bekommt man nur eine pdf oder auch eine Druckversion?
