I can't help but feel a little sad.
I'm really grateful for the last ten+ years, and I'm glad that our group still has so many AP's to pursue.....but it still feels like a big chunk of my life is dying off.
Sounds like we jumped to the assumption that "new race" meant player race.....when they are not actually intended as a player race :P
Can you give more details ?I'm very curious about this new race....but can't imagine they can't take class levels....doesn't make sense :P
Link or it didn't happen :P

Flavor is convertible....so I'm sure those of us sticking with PF1 will still follow specific area's of interest and convert the material back to PF1....but other than what has already been announced...I don't expect much support for PF1. They will be trying to get people to transfer over to PF2.
I'm not expecting anything that will actually benefit the Oozemorph....it's already locked out of most Shifter feats as well...as it trades Claws for Morphic Weapons.
If they do add something helpful to the Oozemorph....I will be pleasantly surprised ;)
And be subject to flanks and crits? Why would they want that? Also, the appeal of the class is being an ooze, not being someone who shapeshifts into different humanoids. Unfortunately the archetype was written to quash that appeal.
Well at least for me....the appeal was being an Ooze..... that can shapeshift into different humanoid form......but I agree that the overall appeal was squashed in the execution :P
If they didn't hamstring a character so bad at low levels (like below 8th), or specifically lock out the one idea that did make it playable (Kitsune with the perfect copy racial ability) it would be a very fun Archetype...but as it is currently (without a lot of house ruling) it's bound to simply be frustrating for low level characters.
EDIT: Apologies, it's a feat (that got locked out by errata, when people brought it up as being viable)....not a racial ability, and it's called Realistic likeness.
Poo....then yep, we will be ignoring that as well :P They seem determined to make this Archetype not work :P
Would love to see a feat/totem list. The only thing is that when you use the racial ability to alter self, you don't get the morphic weaponary or other oozemorph benefits but I assume that's probably being overruled.
Morphic weapon and compression work regardless of what form you are in. Expressly stated ;)
I'm actually doing Oozemorph Barbarian (Urban and invulnerable Rager archetypes)for our Strange Aeons AP. RAW I'm doing a cheat, as the DM has agreed to let me use a homebrew race (built with the race builder rules....does that still count as homebrew ?)So I have Shapechanger type, and the racial ability to use Alter self at will (minus the ability score adjustments). I'm only doing 6 levels of Oozemorph, and the rest Barbarian....but many of the rage abilities actually work well in combination with an Oozemorphs abilities. "It" is a modern attempt to create a Mezlan :P
Besides, they made it pretty clear at the time they had no interest in fixing the Oozemorph, even hamstrung the one playable option.
It's probably a matter of houseruling for your table at this point.
I sometimes get this message too when trying to open the PDF while it is still zipped (i.e. navigating inside the zip file and double clicking the pdf). Did you try right clicking the zip and extracting it then opening from the unzipped folder?
I think that's what's happening, which must mean a setting on my computer has changed for some reason.
I was able to instruct to "extract all" then download the PDF and save to my computer.
ANy idea what might have changed in my setting ?
I'm not very tech savvy....

It looks almost to me like they are opening as Adobe Acrobat files instead of pdf.
It’s a problem of Pathfinder being built on a player base that didn’t want to abandon their previous version. And for the most part, Pathfinder was just 3rd edition, with a few bells and whistles added. If P2 was also just a small change, then people may not have been so upset. But instead, it’s just the same bitterness as when D&D moved to 4th, and changed everything.
Yep, feels exactly the same to me. Wizards threw everyone overboard (Including Paizo) to go a completely different direction....that's what is happening now. But like I said in another thread....I have enough material to play for many years, so when all is said and done everything is fine. I'm just a bit sad at the direction things have gone.
What it meant to me (yes, past tense) was a continuation of the game system I really enjoyed (3.5), but with the addition of a setting I quickly grew to love as much as my old favorite setting (Dragonlance).
What Paizo has accomplished with Pathfinder has been extremely enjoyable for me over the last ten years, and I'm glad to know I can keep enjoying it for many years to come.
I have a great deal of nostalgic sadness that it's over....but realistically, I have enough adventures still to be explored that everything will be fine.
It's still like morning the loss of a friend in a way though :P
I'll miss new AP's and books coming out. But beyond that we plan to keep playing PF1 for a good long time.
We have all the AP's (few holes to fill in some of them), and I'm actually looking through modules that look to be interesting. I assume they will keep selling 1E stuff digitally for a while....so we have plenty to work with for a good long time.
I would have liked more information on Arcadia....but beyond that...we can keep our group going for many years to come.

Nice updates! I too like the cover art, but now I'm even more interested in Dragon shifter. :) Plus stuff about Kamis is always cool.
Dragon and Fey archetypes for the shifter are certainly interesting....I'm still hesitant about shifter stuff....but this looks like it may be worth a peek.

And like I said, it's not likely to change.Those of us staying with 1st edition are going to have to get more comfortable with simply house ruling things at our tables, rather than waiting for "official" input. ;)
