Hi Everyone,

I've been making YouTube videos about Starfinder for the past 8 months, and now with the release of Second Edition I've started doing the same for Pathfinder as well.

My first video is a review of the rules for Flanking: Pathfinder: Basics of Flanking

And my Starfinder videos can be found here:

Enjoy!

Nice I enjoy your videos.

This is a really great idea, and your flanking video is a work of art, with high production value, both for the visuals and the voiceover!

It seems to me that there is a small error in the example with the ogre and orc flanking Seoni diagonally. While moving 2 squares diagonally amounts to a 15-ft move, for reach purpose, 2 squares in diagonal still count as a 10-ft reach. (If it wasn't so, someone could approach the ogre diagonally without triggering a potential attack of opportunity.)

The reference for that exception to the rule is: Core Rulebook, page 455, last paragraph in Range and Reach.

Please be sure that, in pointing out that small mistake, my intention is absolutely not to rain on your parade. I find your video both very pleasant to watch and easy to follow, and I certainly hope you will make many more of them!

Thanks for sharing your work!

GAH!! Thanks for pointing that out. I looked for that rule, since that's how Starfinder works, but didn't see it under the listing for "Reach" as a weapon quality.

I'll add a pop-up correction to the video.

#1 rule for me, I can already tell.
Take Die Hard for every single character I will ever make.

Why is that? It might save your life, but it's quite situational. I'd take Toughness first, and that's not great either.


Great work!

Hmmm... Hazards next sounds pretty good. We'll see!

New video: Basics of Initiative and Surprise

Enjoy!


These are excellent videos. Please keep them coming!

One thing I would like to see is that I noticed on occasion you re-upload videos to fix a specific error, but don't specify what the error was. Would you be able to add in the description of the new video what was changed?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I appreciate the bits on Perception and Stealth especially. Ive been playing since the playtest and still find these systems troublesome.

Very well done, man.

I may have missed one, but I thought I did exactly this. I place three asterisks in the description of the new video followed by what was updated.

I'll have to go back and see if I missed one and correct. Thanks!

Thanks again FP!! These are a valuable resource for the community.

Oh no, it's entirely possible I missed this. That's on me. Thanks anyways! :)
