A Fantastic System

5/5

I never played the first edition of Pathfinder, I found it too complex for my liking. But after playing Second Edition with my friends, I refuse to go back to playing D&D 5e. I love the system of the entire system, the action economy makes the game interesting and engaging, and I could not be happier with just how much fun we are having.

TL; DR-A solid mix of new good things, but some issues remain. 92%

Basics-It’s here! Pathfinder 2nd ed is out in the wild! Let’s dig into this thing! The basics from my previous review here: Let’s look at the big changes.

Base Mechanic-The d20 system never really changes. It’s still numbers + d20 vs other numbers. Pathfinder 2nd Ed has the player add their ability modifier, their level, AND a modifier to the roll, depending on their level of proficiency. The biggest change from the previous one is that the proficiency levels are now +2, +4, +6, or +8 instead of adding one to 4. Honestly, this feels like a change coming from 4th Edition DnD. I know the heresy of that statement, but I like that mechanic.

Action Economy- Players still have the three actions per turn of the playtest with some spells or actions requiring additional actions to do.

Skills- If you are not trained it's just a d20 + ability modifier. If you are not trained, after about 4th level, it might not be useful to even roll.

Options- This edition is labeled featfinder by its critics, but the designers use the word feat instead of options. I’m ok with featfinder as I LOVE class options.

ITEM LEVELS!!!-Items HAVE LEVELS! I love this as you know exactly what an item should cost, what kind of character should have this, and it means that some things such as alchemical items are going to be useful later as higher level options are available.

Character Advancement- Characters now level at 1000 exp. Monsters of your level give certain amounts of experience, and there are formulas for changing the experience points if you are fighting a creature of a higher or lower amount.

Those are the basics. Let’s look at my thoughts.

Mechanics or Crunch-I really love this system. Long ago, I toyed with the idea of making a 3.5/4e hybrid, and this is almost what I wanted. I get the clean mechanics of the d20, but I add my level so leveling up made things matter. I get the deep CRUNCH of 3.5/Pathfinder, but the ease of a 5e. I get cantrips that I can use all the time and not have a wizard firing crappy crossbows while still feeling like a wizard. But it’s not perfect. Skills are kind of a big deal for me. I think the system kind of forgets about skills if you are untrained. I think a fighter could pick up some basics of magic from traveling with a wizard and I liked how previously untrained actions still added your level, just with a penalty. Now you don’t add your level to untrained actions and that basically means you have silos where no untrained character can go. It’s a design choice that isn’t bad, but not one I love. Also, I really don’t like the new EXP system. Just keep creatures with different exp instead of having some crazy formula to figure out the exp! It feels like a level of simplification that some players demanded but the rest of us hate. But overall, I really do like the simplicity of the system and the variety of options in this book. 4.75/5

Theme or Fluff-Everyone has their own idea of what “fantasy” should be. Pathfinder has a niche of an almost industrial magic world where some elements of science are beginning to poke their timid heads out of the real magic with semi-magic, semi-chemistry potions and simple guns. This new game nails that vibe. Also, this edition fixes a major problem others had before: alchemy. I love the idea of alchemy, but it's always hard to add to a system Lots of RPGs add this in later due to fan demands. But that system feels bolted on and not a core of the world, with alchemy basically being a new magic caster class but with a reskin. In Pathfinder 2e, with item levels, an alchemist makes alchemy items and the items are NOT spells. They are their own special thing. I LOVE THIS! Pathfinder 2nd ed nails the Pathfinder theme even better than the original! 5/5

Execution- PDF? Check! Hyperlinked? NOPE! Come on Paizo! This book is over 600 Pages! Even random websites trading illegal PDFs have their stuff hyperlinked and for this size of document, it’s a major problem. Also, I think 3.5 has the best layout for d20 systems in regard to class advancement and feats. However, in the new system the classes get a table of advancement for each level, but you have to read deep into each specific advancement to know what is really happening. It's less at a glance and results in slower leveling and progression. I LOVE table with the character level, short descriptions of mandatory class options, and saving throw bonuses, and even spells if needed. Now we get too many words that are not helping, and two tables that are seperate for magic and character options. That is two too many! Nice concise tables would help this feel less wordy and less tiring to read. Next, feats for each class need a feat table with short, one sentence descriptions of each class option. This is going to take up space, but the current layout of listing several options and just making players read the possible rule in its entirety is too long and wordy. Even if you keep the full feat description, adding these tables would make skimming for your next class option a breeze, but instead you end up reading lots of class options you do not care about. Reading about options you don’t care about is tiring! The rest of the book is fine, but those class sections could use some serious changes to make the material easier to read! Pathfinder 2nd ed charts its own territory, but it needs to learn from its roots for its readability. 4/5

Summary-My review of this system is not glowing, but I do love it. The mechanics of 2nd edition Pathfinder are a mix of 3.5, Pathfinder, and 4th edition and 5th edition DnD. Since I love all those games, I had no issues with all the best being blended together to make the best of everything. I didn’t get EVERYTHING I wanted, but I got enough. I love the world, and the new mechanics of the new edition really emphasize the world. The low point was the execution of the book. It feels way too wordy and made reading all the different classes a slog. The book isn’t bad by any stretch, but I feel that taking some clues on how other editions of RPGs work and displayed their information would really help here. Now this might seem negative but overall I love this system. It's easy to play, characters are made quickly, and I feel it's going to be a fun system for a long time. Can’t wait to see what story I can tell with this system! 92%


Incredible work

5/5

I am floored by what Paizo has accomplished here. So much of the old guard DNA has finally been filtered out. The sheets and book have never been cleaner or clearer from a graphic design standpoint. This book is simply a joy to read cover to cover. All 600+ pages of it! I wasn't planning on coming back to PF, my RPG interests drift a little more indie these days. But I saw the copy at a brick and mortar store and gave it a look. I bought it on the spot.
Thank you, Paizo. Just thank you. I will be ordering many more P2 books as I go.

PS. More Iron Gods plz ;p


Pathfinder has never been better before

5/5

Improved in almost every single way I can think of. Bravo!


Simply Amazing

5/5

I love Pathfinder 2E. Great game with tons of improvements. The book is good quality, very nice layout and design. A+ stuff.

I don't suppose the folk at Paizo could send out an addendum e-mail to customers who pre-ordered letting them know that the PDFs will be released in August? Though I suppose it's a moot point asking now as it's a Saturday and no one will see this request.


Pathfinder Companion, Maps Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

The initial PDFs for the PF2 products will apparently be a one-page copy of the e-mail. In that case, you would know that the real PDFs are out when they show a last updated date of 1 August and a much greater file size.

I don't know where you are getting this information, but I can tell you from my own experience that the shipping email says nothing about delayed PDFs, the product page here claims that the PDF is waiting in the downloads section, but that there just is none. I have not received any information about the delayed unlock of the PDFs in any way, even though I am following the blog posts. The only thing I found was a post by some paizo official buried in the forums somewhere.

If I missed anything, please point me in the right direction.

From this stickied thread in the Customer Service section.

That said, the implementation has not been as stated. As you say, there is no placeholder PDF, just no PDF listed. I don't know if this is a technical glitch or if the placeholders just weren't ready for the beginning of the shipping window. Perhaps we'll get more information on Monday, when people are back in the office.

EDIT: Oh, hey, if you scroll all the way to the bottom of your Digital Content page, there is this:

Quote:

The following five products have been added to your account, but are not currently available for download:

Pathfinder Bestiary PDF
Pathfinder Flip-Mat: The Fall of Plaguestone PDF
Pathfinder Adventure: The Fall of Plaguestone PDF
Pathfinder Adventure Path: Hellknight Hill (Age of Ashes 1 of 6) PDF
Pathfinder Core Rulebook PDF

Which can be a lot of scrolling, if you have a lot of PDFs. Still no placeholder, as was foretold*, however.

I've bought every hardcover book available for Pathfinder, by far my favorite game. This money grab for a second addition hasn't excited me like it has others. I will most likely end my collection at 1st edition and migrate over to Dungeons and Dragons. It was fun while it lasted and I'll still play the 1st edition, but I can't see spending another $1000 or so on another edition to rehash so much of the same stuff, just with "simpler" rules. My generation isn't the target audience anymore I guess.
So, you'll migrate to D&D 5e and spend another 1000 USD on another edition to rehash so much of the same stuff, just with "simpler" rules? :)

I have to agree with the Good Ol' Bagsy here, although in a slightly less confrontational tone. I just don't get why people blame Paizo for 2E being a "money grab" or claiming Paizo has "betrayed their fans".

I, too, have purchased all the Pathfinder hardcovers and almost half of the softcovers plus an insane amount of maps, flip-tiles, miniatures, pawns and whatnot. I've enjoyed 1E immensely, probably more than any other RPG system I've ever tried, but 10 years is a very, very long run for an edition of any game. And I think Jason mentioned years ago that there was a lot of things he would have originally changed in 1E, if it hadn't been for backwards compatibility.

Funnily enough, I haven't yet seen (apart from the new action economy) that 2E would be a simpler game than 1E; the book is thicker than ever and just to give an example there seems to be more conditions, more spells, more feats, more activities etcetera. It may be smoother to run and play once you get it, but I'm an old warhorse who is heavily invested in 1E and kind of still on the fence.

Regardless of whether I'll end up running or playing 2E, I'm excited to see how it turns out. Maybe I'll buy the books, or maybe I won't. That has no bearing on how much I just *LOVE* the flip-tiles or Pathfinder minis, and I'm certain I'll also buy 2E adventures just as I've purchased 5E adventures occasionally.

Of course, it figures the one time I get early shipping, Paizo isn't doing early PDFs. Oh well.

I am up to date on the pdfs, so I was suprised when my email told me the pdfs were downloadable. They weren't of course, but that doesn't bother me. The bigger confusion is that the email says my package has shipped, yet also says that it will ship before the 2nd.

Is your order trackable? If so, you may want to click on that link to see where your package is. In the past, I have sometimes noticed enough of a delay in them leaving Washington state to suspect that they were waiting on a loading dock to be picked up for several days.

But I am suspecting progress now that both of my shipments have gone from listing a number range of days until they ship to "Not yet shipped". Maybe they will both be on their way this week!

Nothing Trackable yet, it just has the "May take up to 48 hours to show up" on the tracking, I will probably check in tomorrow night."

The email generates when the labels for your box(es) are printed. Usually this means it will be going out that day or the next, but sometimes things happen, so they put the end of their shipping period as the deadline for it to actually happen

Copies from paizo.com have been shipping out to folks with our July New Release shipping. We've expanded the window a bit for this release to try to get preordered and subscriber copies shipped in time for the launch. I know people are very excited to see these books and I’d like to quick remind folks to be respectful when posting about getting your copy earlier than others, and when asking people if they can share info from copies folks have already received.

Posting snippets and discussing them is fine. Typing up really long chunks of text or taking pictures of every page is excessive. We want people to have fun and be excited, but we also want to be respectful of folks who own or support FLGSs, or plan to pick up their copies at Gen Con and do not have the potential for getting a copy early.

And remember if you see something you want to take a deep, game theory debate approach to talking about, go ahead and start a new thread to tackle that rather than getting into a super specific discussion in the product thread. Thanks!

I'm curious to know why/how the Amazon price for this and other books are 20%-35% discounted.

I want to support Paizo the best way I can, but saving that much will allow me to purchase more books than I would have otherwise.

Now I just need to find the time in my busy schedule to read the 1000+ pages of P2 content when it comes out.

From Redmond, WA and then the next day to Fife, WA? Me too! Mine's been in Fife since Tuesday morning. When I've had trackable packages before from Paizo, they always seem to hang out in Fife for a few days. It's a magical place.

Amazon sells at a loss, Paizo actually has to make a profit in order to pay all its employees and freelancers who make the thing being sold.

Note that if you're subscribed to the line you get a free PDF of the product as well.

Amazon functions as a wholesaler here. They are selling at or near the distributor price. This is versus a brick and mortar store that has to pay the distributor, employees, rent, etc. Paizo sells at the list price because they need the books to sell at the FLGS. If I own an FLGS, why would I stick my neck out to purchase a book from the distributor and take up valuable shelf space just so that Paizo can come along and sell the same book for 20% less AND throw in a free PDF on top of that?

TLDR; Amazon shouldn't be compared to anything b/c they are not the same as Paizo or FLGS; Paizo doesn't want to kneecap their partners by undercutting their own market.

Amazon does typically come in a lot cheaper however its worth noting that specifically for Paizo books they are usually not available to well after the street date in most cases as they get them from a distributor and not Paizo directly.

If past experience is a guide, my package will hang out in Fife over the weekend, at some point next week zoom across the country to my town, then sit here locally over another weekend before showing up Monday or Tuesday. Ah, Mail Innovations, there's a reason you're so cheap.

I like MI's FAQ.

Q. When will I receive my mail piece?

A. UPS Mail Innovations inducts your mail piece into the U.S. Postal Service within 48 hours of processing. The U.S. Postal Service will then deliver the mail piece within three to five days, on average.

That is BS!

^^ This.

Back before my wife and I retired and I had a lot of subscriptions, I would see the package leave Paizo, get one update that it was en-route to NY and no updates till it shows up at my door, then all the updates come thru.

Don't worry about UPS-MI updates.

Mine is now a state away. I probably will see it tomorrow. :)

Which means a lot of squinting and using reading glasses (which tend to make me feel nauseous) to read them until the PDFs are released and I can enlarge fonts to my heart's contentment. ^^;;

Ah well. Getting old sucks. The alternative is worse though.

^^ This.

Back before my wife and I retired and I had a lot of subscriptions, I would see the package leave Paizo, get one update that it was en-route to NY and no updates till it shows up at my door, then all the updates come thru.

Don't worry about UPS-MI updates.

That makes me feel better, at least about the package arriving safely. More than a little irritated with UPS's apparent misunderstanding of how "tracking" is supposed to work, but I suppose I can't complain too much with how little shipping cost me.

I really like my books, very nice quality. I am going to be whipping up a three man party to run through some tests (Goblin Fire Sorcerer, Half-Orc Cleric of Gorum, and Human Rogue) and then run some for a friend (Bard, Barbarian, Druid)

Everyone else has had their books for a week, and mine haven't even shipped yet. I guess I can't get upset, since official release date is Aug 1st. I'll just listen to everyone else talk about how cool it is for the next 10 or 11 days.

Only a few people have their books, it's really just luck of the draw. According to UPS, mine has been sitting in Fife, WA for SIX DAYS. It's cruel the way they gave me hope a week ago.

@Phaedre - Is it sitting in Fife, or does it say "Package transferred to dest MI facility" like mine currently does, which means that it has left Fife, but has not been received at the UPS-MI facility near where you live to be injected into the USPS system.
