Who's going to be playing this weekend? Do you have settings or campaigns already set up?
I'm reaaaally excited to get to play around with the new system.

In case you missed it, we'll have Pathfinder Second Edition tomorrow! Complete with the Account Sync with your Paizo account so you can unlock the PDF. http://roll20.io/PF2Blog

I've never tried Roll20, but have had an unused account for a long time. Maybe this is the time to learn the system and start using it.

Fantasy Grounds has account sync for PF1 & Starfinder, so probably will have it for PF2.

Roll20 also has a new account sync starting today that will work for all Paizo products.

I haven't been using a virtual tabletop for long (only started this year) and I absolutely love it. I've started making encounter maps for my in-person games in-app. I hope you at least get to try it! I know we're going to have a special map done by one of our Marketplace creators for the first PF2 Adventure Path too.

Excited about the support! I have been using Maptool for years, but will likely give Roll20 a try, because of its 2e support.

No Bestiary support for a few months is a drag , but neat nonetheless


Okay hopefully I'm missing something but I bought the PDF from Paizo and now I have to buy it again from Rolld20 for 48 dollars?

Why would I want to do this?

It doesn't just be like "Oh you bought the PDF already? Here's all the stuff on Rolld20"

Because it is not the same thing. They have taken the time/labor to enter all the data into their platform and should be (rightfully so) compensated for that.

BTW the discount/cross promotion/discount thing is new, and I persoanlly think it is awesome and a step in the right direction. Thanks Paizo/Roll20!!


Do you get access to it if you are a premium member? Or would you still have to pay for it?

A premium member (Pro) of Roll20? No

I must add that I have bought the 5e versions on Roll20 and all the functionality (Drag and Drop on Char sheet, Online Compendium , Charactermancer (Creator) support) is well worth the price and is what you are paying for. If this does not appeal to you, than it might just not be for you.

Note: They have the Character sheet and (NPC/Monster Sheets coming soon) for free, so technically you don't need any of the above to play.

Hope that helps

Thanks Jib916!

And yeah, we have a ton of updates in the works for the PF2 integration, both for the Character sheet and Compendium. All of the Character sheet capabilities are available for every user, from free to Pro subscribers.

Charactermancer for PF2 is currently slated to be live for early 2020, I personally can't wait for that. It makes character creation SO easy.

For anyone that has been, or is interested playing on Roll20, we have Fall of Plaguestone now and the NPC sheets are live! Our User Collab team has been working really hard to get the Character Sheets as integrated as possible.

As someone who used to only play in person, ngl this whole playing online thing (wherever you play) is pretty freakin' sweet.


I wish I could find one that was generally text based. Got loud doggies/loud house hold members. Also closest game store is about 1.5hr drive sadly!

Roll20 is pretty fun.

Maybe I need to figure out how society works and try some post by post.


I hope that age of ashes gets the treatment, cause I'm looking to start hellknight hill


I will wait until I have enough material, but I think PF2 lends itself well to Roll20/virtual tabletops.

The thing is, with these rules-heavy, miniature-based games, I need rules support and modules, because doing it all from scratch is just not possible with my schedule (anymore). I need rules, monsters, maps and so on.

For less rules-heavy systems, I do not care that much, but even then, I find that the logistics are more demanding than at the table.

When I moved away from my regular gaming buddies, I started a couple of D&D 5e campaigns on Roll20, but the amount of work was simply too much. Nowadays, I just GM modules that give me everything I need, which is well worth the price.

So, some nice Adventure Path and maybe a Bestiary would be nice.

We'll definitely be working on Age of Ashes as soon as we're able, and Bestiary is currently getting worked on.

I know there are some text-only games or play by post. You could always try the LFG search, or you could create your own post for it? Loud households are definitely not conducive to using voice chat.

And yeah, modules are kind of heavenly as an adult. I love doing homebrew and world-building but oh wow there's only so much time in a day.

For anyone who's been playing on Roll20 or wants to, our User Collaboration team is making consistent updates (every two weeks at minimum) to the PF2e Character Sheet integration. http://roll20.io/PF2CharSheet

I was able to roll my spells with a single click and oh my word it was so nice to not have to keep the compendium open to look up each spell once I put all the info onto my sheet.

Is anyone else playing Fall of Plaguestone on Roll20? What's your party make-up?

I have to say that as someone who has never been on roll20, this is an incredibly non-intuitive way to get to a character sheet. I tried the other week when you last posted and no luck. Now at least with the latest link I was able to find a community member explain it to someone else, but I still can't quite seem to get it to pull up. I like to consider myself tech-savvy but TBH I'm a bit off-put by how buried the sheet is.

Meanwhile I was able to go to mythweavers, find a template, and start building right away. Granted, I know these are two completely different ways to play the game but at least it was intuitive and easy to follow. Anyway, found some games on mythweavers I'll be playing so guess that solves my dilemma .

Hate to sound negative so I will add that Charactermancer sounds pretty cool. I do intend to check back in once that has been finished. I just hope it's easier to find than these elusive sheets

I'm running 2 of my 4 groups through Plaguestone right now :)

I did remake the maps as I hate the "watercolorey 5Ed" type maps, but it is a 1-4 level adventure so I did not expect Paizo to go crazy on them.

I'm a bit bummed about leaving Age of Ashes til later compared to the Beast I book. As I'm getting a group together for that and hopefully as a player instead of Gming it. But I have all the maps (MUCH better maps thank god!!) and dynamic lighting set up and 4-5 of the 6 players, just looking for a GM to run this for us every saturday evening, no luck yet.

The sheet is a nice start but PLEASE get those 2nd and 3rd attack penalties in there ASAP, we can wait later for the other bells and whistles me thinks ;)

Cheers

Did you have issues finding the Pathfinder Second Edition sheet in the dropdown menu when creating a game? I would love to know the pain points in your process, if you don't mind sharing.

I'm glad you were able to find games to join elsewhere! I hope you have good groups.

And yeah, Charactermancer is gonna be shiny as heck. It makes everything so much easier, and far easier to entice new players into games. ;)

Thanks for the feedback! I'll pass along the attack penalties request, I'm pretty sure it's in the queue already but another voice asking for it never hurts.

Age of Ashes is definitely on the list after Bestiary, and I can definitely let you know a timeline update when I have one.

Best of luck finding a GM! It's always refreshing getting to be a player instead of a GM.

Oof, yeah, the Compendium support for PF2 is really expensive, and it's JUST the Compendium support and some art assets justifying the hike over the cost of the proper PDF from Paizo. PF1 got Compendium support for free and that was pretty instrumental in my groups preferring to use PF1 over D&D. Even 5e has at least its free SRD available. It stings quite a bit to pay so much for what's on pf2.aonprd.com for free. Seems to be the same case with Fantasy Grounds, though for some strange reason I can still drag and drop everything from the PF2 ruleset there despite not having purchased their module. I'm not quite sure what's included with theirs.

I guess here's hoping that OGL means we can get more affordable VTT support for PF2 somewhere.


Thanks for the kindly reply Bunny!!

Yep,, I found a GM and all set to go as a player with 5 others for a party of 6 in a couple weeks for Age of Ashes, YIPPEEEEEEEE!!!

Thanks for passing the feedback, also a lot of Monks and Rogue players so the -4 (2nd Attack) and -8 (3rd Attack) for their Agile Fist/Light Weapon attacks would also be something needed as well please :)

And on the last posters thoughts

Well PF II just came out and PF I has been out a long time when Roll20 picked it up so I have no problem paying to get the new Compendium for PF II.

I bought the physical book then bought the Roll20 Compedium for ease of use in game for Roll20 then I got the free PDF here because of the Roll20 purchase, and a discount on the Roll20 product, works for me.

And its nice to support the 2 companies that are making this happen!! :)

Others mileage may vary but for me this is a non issue in and of itself

Cheers

If any of you want to follow along with some of our integration updates for PF2e, our User Collab lead keeps this thread very up to date: http://roll20.io/PF2CharSheet.
She's been adding in the community's requests alongside the internal priorities while constantly updating current support.

Helmic- The cost of the product on Roll20 covers the current and any future integration, so maybe it'll be worth it you at some point. Regardless, I hope you find what you're looking for!

TRDG- grats on finding a GM! That's wicked exciting.


Thanks BR, very fired up, now with the arch types out from Lost omens players (including me might rejigger their starting characters, fun though to have extra options!!

For those interested, our User Collab team got the NPC spellcaster sheet created: http://roll20.io/PF2CharSheet

There's lots more on the way with regards to character sheet functionality, and the Bestiary is currently in production.

We also have Roll20Con coming up October 5 & 6 so if you've ever wanted to try out Dynamic Lighting (or want to help raise money for TakeThis.org), keep an eye out on our twitter (roll20app) or the blog on our website. Adam Koebel will be creating a Pathfinder2e adventure on stream that Saturday and running it Sunday.

Hey all! This weekend is Roll20Con and Adam Koebel is going to be building a PF2e game on Saturday at 3pm PT on twitch.tv/Roll20App if anyone wants to see it on the vtt. He's going to be running that build on Sunday morning at 10am PT. I'm excited to see what he's going to do with it.

Also, anyone with a Roll20 account also gets to try out Dynamic Lighting for free starting October 5 until October 15, in case that's something any of you have wanted to try. Details for the convention and the free trial are over here: http://roll20.io/Roll20Con2019

Yeah, what Gorbacz said! Adam is also the GM in Residence for Roll20. He's been playing on Roll20 and streaming games for years.

He actually did a full walkthrough of the Core Rulebook and Bestiary pdfs on his twitch channel yesterday. I haven't gotten to play PF2 in a few weeks and it really just had me jonesin' to go play.

Was a neat stream yesterday. Enjoyed the team showing off the work done on the Bestiary!

Did I hear correctly that it might be available in a couple weeks?? Can't find any information elsewhere !

Thanks! It was fun, and Carlos and Adam are always a blast to listen to when they get chatting. I can't wait to see how today's game goes with the encounter he built.

And the Bestiary actually going to be available sooner than a couple of weeks. ;)
Keep an eye out... let's say in a few days. :D
