Really fun dungeon crawl

5/5


Actually tops the 1E beginner box

5/5

Context: I own the 2E Beginner Box in both PDF and print (where it truly shines).

The good: This box really offers unparalleled value for money in terms of the physical components. Everything you need to play is here. I especially liked the fact that six player reference cards were included, making them useful for games that include more than the four included pregens. Also noteworthy is the selection of pawns, which makes an ideal supplement to the Bestiary Box with respect to additional low-level baddies. The included adventure also seems well-crafted. Finally, I love that -- unlike the 1E beginner box -- the rules are fully compatible with the "full-fat" game. These factors combine to make the package compelling, even for established players.

The bad: Providing a flip-mat with one blank side would have better supported homebrew adventures, possibly extending the utility of the box. Speaking of the included flip-mat, the squares are -- like the Star-Finder basic flip map -- a bit too large. Not a huge deal, as this map probably won't be mixed and matched with other maps/tiles, but seeing this continue to happen years down the road is unfortunate.

The ugly: The D4 is numbered wrong? :P

Menace Under Otari - Solid!

5/5

This review is just for the adventure portion included in the box. Menace Under Otari, as a classic dungeon crawl, is XP-thick, and I like this, as a feature of this product; you get to level in the adventure, and fight the final fight as 2nd level. That's a win in my book for the players. Diplomacy-based PCs may feel less useful in this adventure, but luckily all PF2E classes have pretty good balance and are able to contribute. If playing with 4 players, I'd recommend rewarding each hero a hero point per hour of play, or at the very least every two hours. With so many die rolls, those will come in handy.

Without giving too much away, the adventure has a good mix of different difficulty-level combats, some terrain challenges, and a puzzle. All of this is great for teaching the game.

If you plan to orient players to Otari and its locations and NPCs (say as a non-Pathfinder Society adventure, or to start the beginning of a campaign), I would definitely allow 5 hours for each session, so 10 hours for both parts. I GM'ed it in one go, and in retrospect, would've broken it into two sessions. If running it in one go 10 hours would allow you to take some breaks throughout, if just to break up the slog through the dungeon.

If running this online, I'd insist player come early for characters and training, unless they are good at figuring out VTTs, and experienced PF2E players. One other thing. Ask players to have their 2nd level choices decided before game time, as the game assumes that you will level before the end fight.

Overall, I'd love to play this particular adventure, because I like dungeon crawls, the tactical challenge they present, and this is, imho, a great beginner adventure. That said, the sanctioning document is very liberal with interpretation on how to run it, think "campaign mode", so I allowed any class/ancestry combos, but not rare backgrounds. Also, I had 5 players, only scaled up a few fights. 4 players may take a bit shorter than 10 hours.

Enjoy this fine product!

The First Encounter is a walk through of a specific combat. If you roll a 20 during this then it would be considered a crit.

Ah, ok, I see.

Yes, the roll of 20 in and of itself is a success in that encounter, no matter what your attack modifiers, because it beats that first target's AC.

Then, because you rolled a 20, that success improves to a critical success.

Request For Beginner Box Forum

PF1 had a separate forum for Beginner Box discussions.

Rather than continuing to clog up the product page, and make it impossible for newbies to find anything in a single pages-long thread, could we please get a Beginner Box Forum for PF2?

Ordered and Downloaded the PDF.

First thing I notice, opening in Adobe Pro X, is that the Pre-Gen Character sheets are needing to be fixed. Numbers outside of boxes, over words.

All 4 sheets, specifically over the Armor Class area.

Also would be nice if they were broken down into 8.5x11 to make them printable on standard at home printers. most of us don't have 11x17 capabilities :D

That's peculiar. Being a Paizo's PDF, I thought it would have applied...

Definitely should apply, but sometimes when things first get released they fall through the crack. Someone will need to toggle that on when they get back in the office tomorrow.

Honestly, the main reason I picked them up was for easy printing of the pre gen sheets.... Not having them as 4 individual 8.5x11 pages and having the text not in the right spots are bigger issues for me than the 2 bucks or so I would have saved.

I have also bought the PDF and Paizo Advantage didn't apply. Weird.

I am very impressed with this beginner box! Didn't dive into rules that much, but I noticed there are some exclusive items and monsters in the product, which is nice. What I want to compliment the most is the presentation! Not only is the product very readable and clearly laid out, the rules and game are explained WONDERFULLY. And the adventure from GM's book is a great intro and it explains the game SO WELL. Out of all intro products I have ever read, I think this one is the best when it comes to presentation and explaining the game. Good job Paizo! I also think that the dungeon is pretty nice, not dull and not overcomplicated. I really give this product a thumbs-up.

Something odd that I found (and I have not seen this brought up anywhere else) is that the Character sheets

(at least through the link that I viewed:
https://paizo.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/PFBeginnerBox_CharacterSheet.pdf)

have the wrong calculation for a melee weapon attack roll.

Melee Weapon Attack rolls are entered in there as being affected by DEX and not STR. DEX affecting your melee to hit should only be an option that's available when you use a Finesse weapon.

Other than that they look beautiful and I wish there were versions this visually appealing that had additional bubbles to mark when you gained Master and Legendary proficiencies.

Is it intended that the Pathfinder Advantage discount doesn't apply to the PDF? If so, may I ask why?


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Companion, Pathfinder Accessories, PF Special Edition Subscriber; Starfinder Superscriber

I just looked into that myself. After reading the FAQs on subscriptions I conclude that if a product has a corresponding pdf, and if when you buy that product you do so via a subscription, you pay for the product and you get the pdf for free. If there is no subscription for the product (and the BB is not a subscription product, as the product description page says) or you don't have a subscription to the appropriate line when you buy it, then you don't get the pdf for free. So I'm gonna go order it in a minute (I already have my box). :-)

Added: Oh, I guess that didn't answer your question. I don't know the answer to that - I would have thought the discount would apply. I'll get back to you after I place my order. :-)

Yeah, you missed the addendum where I said I didn't know the answer to that. I do know that the order I just placed for the pdf didn't include the subscriber advantage discount.


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Companion, Pathfinder Accessories, PF Special Edition Subscriber; Starfinder Superscriber

I also noticed that the red blurb at the top of the product now says "you ordered this product today" and links to the pdf order I just made. Which means if I ever want to find the order that contains the physical product I'm going to have to search my order history manually. :-(

Also, what's with this damn "you backtracked too many times" BS? *I* didn't backtrack at all. And I don't like it when software tosses my carefully constructed epistles in the trash without my permission. I'm not angry, but I *am* annoyed.

I've noticed that when I get that error screen, if I use the 'back button' on my browser toolbar, I'm returned to the previous screen without any loss of text. (Firefox 82.0.3)

I have confirmed that the Art Dept has corrected the PreGens and Katina, the Store Manager, has uploaded them into the system. Our system can take a while to update the files. (I just tried it and got the bad files a second time too.) One can try the "refresh downloads" button at the top of the digital assets page, and if that doesn't work then click the "having problems downloading?" link by the digital asset itself. Lastly, please have some patience and return.

The "Top Sheet" doc should not be there at all. It will be removed from the folder.

In the printed blank Character Sheet was indeed an incorrect version. There will be an updated sheet when the files are updated. In the correct version the first "MELEE WEAPON" To-Hit space has STR/DEX, the second "MELEE WEAPON" To-Hit space has only STR.

Thank you for calling this to our attention. We apologize for the faulty launch.

Hm. My download a couple of hours ago doesn't have the "Top Sheet" doc, but it does have "updated" attached to the names of all the Pregen files and the blank Character Sheet. However, the Character Sheet has STR/DEX for the first weapon and DEX for the second. Am I correct in assuming this is *not* the latest version of these things?

I picked up my box at my local store. I have been reading through it. I really like the way attributes are done. Just use the bonus, after all that is all that matters. This product is just so beautiful and well done.

Can we expect a player and/or gamemaster addendum that adds a few extra things like we got with the first edition beginner box? If so, might I suggest maybe adding the bard class and the gnome ancestry?

One question that I do have is how this relates to Troubles in Otari. The beginner box only has details to advance to 3rd level, but Troubles in Otari is supposed to be able to take you beyond 3rd. Will the adventure contain the details to get to 4th or 5th level?


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Companion, Pathfinder Accessories, PF Special Edition Subscriber; Starfinder Superscriber

If the adventure doesn't contain such details, they'll be in the CRB. :-)

There is a link to the Character Sheet pdf on the Beginner Box landing page. You can find that using the top menu

This link will take you directly to the Character Sheet PDF

And, of course, as Ed Reppert said, you can make as many copies as you like of the blank character sheets from the box


One error I noted in the text is under the cleric’s Daze spell, it says “This deals mental damage equal to your Intelligence” - shouldn’t that be Wisdom, the cleric’s spell casting ability, instead?


I'm a little confused about the ability score generation used in the beginner box, in that it seems to be possible to get a +5 or effective score of 20 in an ability at first level if you are either a Human Acolyte Cleric, Human Criminal Rogue, or Human Scholar Wizard. I'm not sure if I just haven't seen where it says you cannot do that, but yeah.

Quick Question for the nice people at Paizo.

I purchased the Beginner Box at Roll20. Looking great. With other Pathfinder purchases I have made on Roll20 I was given a PDF version of the product - which appeared in my downloads. Nothing has shown up for the Beginner Box.Any Advice?
