    PF2E About Agents of Edgewatch

    That doesn't sound particularly interesting. I was already turned off by the AP by Paizo deciding to make all damage nonlethal in a fantasy game and making it seem as if any law enforcement that uses lethal force is automatically wrong. It was a ridiculous overreaction by Paizo in a fantasy game...

    PF2E Here's What's Coming For Pathfinder Over The Coming Year

    PF2 was built to be more customizable and require more system mastery much like the D20 system. It's for players looking for a deeper mechanical interface and more tactical options even if story is less of a focus. 5E was built for people that really want to focus on story over mechanics. The...

    PF2E PF2E like D&D 4e?

    They turned things that should not have been encounter powers into encounter powers in 4E. PF2 and 4E are very different. For example, if I want to use 3 focus points on the same power 3 times in a row, I can. Focus powers are more flexible and give the player more agency and control as well to...

    Paizo So how are P2 and Starfinder doing?

    I figured PF2 would have a slower uptake than PF1 given the gaming community is very happy with 5E. When PF1 came out the community was split. 5E has pretty handily rejuvenated the D&D community and drawn them back together. PF2 is a very good game, but it will take more work and time for uptake.

    African Adventures

    East Africa, specifically Ethiopia, might be a good place to investigate as well. That place is ancient. It's a been an area with a lot of cross cultural movement given it's location. That place was never truly colonized. Ethiopia is ancient and they still speak only the languages of their...

    PF2E Martials > Casters

    Having reviewed the 5E spells, I have to agree to a point. I felt the 5E wizard was an underwhelming class that did not compete with optimized builds using other classes. We never ran with a single class wizard after the very first adventure because they were not necessary. You did not need a...

    PF2E Martials > Casters

    I remember those. Never seemed to do much in our games. Things died too fast to the archer and smiting martials. Those spells were definitely more effective than than PF2 summons, which are pretty terrible in battles, especially so against BBEGs. PF2 did a terrible job balancing the...

    What spell lets you summon lots of little things?

    PF2E Martials > Casters

    5E vs. PF2 comparison: Cantrips at max level: 5E damage: 4d8 PF2 damage: 10d4+5. Mixed ranges between 30 feet and 120 feet. Fireball: 5E: 3rd level 8d6. 1d6 Heightening. PF2: 3rd level: 6d6. 2d6 Heightening. Shapechange: 5E: So much better than PF2 that I won't even bother listing it. PF2...

    PF2E Martials > Casters

    I found them both weak for different reasons. Though 5E did have some better elements than PF2 like shapechanging at high level.

    PF2E Martials > Casters

    Legendary saves and concentration made life very hard for casters in 5E. Not sure how you min-max out of concentration. Forcecage was one of the few spells that was very nice in 5E, thought not always applicable and certainly didn't kill anything. Shapechanging in 5E was much better than PF2...

    PF2E Martials > Casters

    I found the 5E wizard to be subpar with feats, magic items, and multiclassing. It was probably adequate without feats and multiclassing. Though it did have some nice utility spells. Just not much of a great damage dealer. I only played a wizard to 16th level. At least 5E had magic items to...

    PF2E Martials > Casters

    True strike is one of the best 1st level spells if not the best.

    PF2E Martials > Casters

    So far the druid seems much better. I have too many things to do with my actions as a druid whereas as a wizard I usually had one thing to do. As a druid I can do the following after casting a cantrip: 1. Command my animal. 2. Fire my bow. 3. Raise a shield. Two offensive and one defensive...

    PF2E Martials > Casters

    I have not tried a focused summoner yet. No, they do not appear to be a good option on paper. But summons often aren't great until more monster books are released. Even in the PF1 core rulebook, summons often weren't great. I think one of the best summons I've seen so far is the Lillend Azata...
