Good place to go for overall view / history / setting sense of PF2e


Pathfinder Second Edition General Discussion


Nice to read all the wishlist items and picky thoughts posted in forums...but I'm a newbie and still trying to get my head around the overall view of what's it all about from maybe 30,000 sq.ft level....We've just about completed Beginner Box first adventure below the tavern in Otari....and have purchased "Troubles in Otari"...but where do we go from there???? and what's the story flow for players quite new to all of it...the role playing...the PF setting and game???

All responses appreciated in advance...


The Lost Omens World Guide is an overview of the setting, and is the best place to start; the entire Lost Omens series of books are all about the lore, just focused on various topics.

Wayfinders

The core rulebook also has a chapter that broadly describes the setting, though in very broad strokes given it's only 26 pages.

Thanks...that's the answer I was looking for and gather there is an overall map there as well...


If you have any further questions, the Lost Omens subforum is the place - we’re friendly, I promise!


I personally like to go to the Pathfinder wiki for questions about the setting.

It's not a detailed description, like the one you could get from the books, but if all you want is a simple sense of what's going on, I think it's an ideal place to start before buying the Lost Omens books.

With a word of warning that a lot of the wiki reflects 1e canon; you'll see much harsher treatments of certain ancestries than in 2e, and lots of pages don't reflect the changes to the setting leading up to 2e and during its run.
