Are There Going to be Any Published Previews?


Pathfinder Second Edition General Discussion


1 person marked this as a favorite.

First off, my apologies if this has been asked and answered already.

Do we know if paizo, in the weeks leading up to the release of the core rulebook, will be putting up any previews ie. classes, races, feats etc. that have changed from the playtest?

They'll be doing some sort of mechanics previews starting...I think this coming Monday? What form these will take we do not know.


That would be great if they did. After taking a few years off, my group is going to start playing again in September but not sure if it'll be 1st edition or 2nd edition yet. It would be nice to get as much info about 2nd edition as possible before to group decides.


Yes, the first preview blog is tomorrow. See here:

But I know folks are hungry for a lot more information about Pathfinder Second Edition. And I've got good news for you. The kind of quiet period is now well over.

Look for a blog on Monday that's gonna kind of introduce a lot of the broad concepts. We're going to be doing some blogs hopefully every Monday after that—I'm still kind of negotiating some timing details but Monday I think is going to be our target date.

We still have Oblivion Oath ... And we have a lot of other things kind of ramping up as well.

Expect some articles on some websites, expect some interviews in some magazines, there's going to be lots of different places where we're talking about the game. We don't want to only talk in one spot because if that's not the spot for you, you don't get anything. So we're going to be all over the place. You're going to see us plenty on here on Twitch, you're going to see us plenty on YouTube, you're going to see us plenty on Paizo, and you're going to see us plenty on great channels like Know Direction[/url]

The hosts then indicate that the next couple Know Direction shows will also have Paizo folks talking second edition.

The full version of the final rules for PF2 will also be out and available on Archives of Nethys at least a month before your game starts in September, so you shouldn't have too many issues getting a good look at them ahead of time (even without counting blog teasers and such.)

I thought we were supposed to get a preview from one of the blogs today.

We are supposed to, yes. But Paizo's on Pacific time and the playtest blogs often came quite late in the day (4-7pm Pacific, I think?). So the window's not closed yet.

Thanks for this info. I was starting to get a bit nervous. I've been really looking forward to today's article, glad to see there's still a chance we get it.

Not gonna lie, I'm kinda nervous still


"I'm still kind of negotiating some timing details but Monday I think is going to be our target date." Isn't really a phrase to bet the farm on.


welp. at this hour I'd say the blog, so recently promised, is a no-show

5 weeks to release and still no organized previews of post-playtest PF2


Except it is up. ;-)

Do you mean this blog? Not that much to this one, but it does seem to promise a lot more next Monday.

I've refreshed the page like 3 times before and 3 times after posting to triple check. Am I having some technology issue?

EDIT: apparently yes, I was having some technology issue; here's the blog

EDIT EDIT: I'm really kind of annoyed! I try not to be punchy online, for the most part, and I'm especially supportive of Paizo & PF2. Trust the designers, loved what we've seen (scattershot though it's been) so far, etc. So here I was, being extra diligent before getting a little spicy. And yet! The technology betrayed me


It appears to have gone up about an hour ago, but I was sitting here spamming F5 every ten minutes and only just now saw it pop up, so I think there might have been a technical glitch.

I've also noticed that the timestamps on the blog posts are ... unreliable at best. They seem to shift around wildly even for the same post. And I haven't seen a twitter notification for the paizo account or the paizo folks I follow and have notifications set for. So who even knows when it went up or was supposed to have gone up.

I actually had it up, read it, clicked on the blogs link again to see if there was a discussion started on the blog yet, and didn't get it. Hit refresh and it reappeared.

Probably some propagation delays on the server side.

I almost missed this because the blog is not posted in this forum...

Yeah, if I hadn't seen this thread, I'd have never know as I don't do whatever twitch is.

That is why I set a record for flagging a post. In the thread for that blog, I asked whether it should be in this thread instead and then immediately flagged my own post.

And it looks like they did move it.
