    Pathfinder 2E Taking20 -"I'm Quitting Pathfinder 2e Because of This Issue"

    PF2 isn't as fun as PF1 was, but the balance is nice and makes it easy to run. I like PF2 better than 5E, but not as much as PF1. But I will keep playing PF2 because it's so easy on me as a DM. I do understand as a player not having as much fun given you can't do as much as a PF2 character as...

    Pathfinder 2E Wanting to Change the AP We Started - Advice?

    I'm glad I decided to give Extinction Curse a run. I had held off due the Circus. My buddies and I wanted to do a side campaign as the main one was having trouble getting everyone together. I've been really pleased with the Extinction Curse AP. I keep the Circus mostly in the background other...

    Pathfinder 2E Wanting to Change the AP We Started - Advice?

    I honestly don't like Age of Ashes either. There are good elements to it, but the story is not cohesive. It all occurs by happenstance. The motivation for moving forward is weak. It's like some cool adventure elements placed together in a disjointed, haphazard manner. Definitely not Paizo's best...

    Pathfinder 2E Another Deadly Session, and It's Getting Old

    I wonder how many people don't use the exploration activities? They can be very helpful to preventing you from walking into an ambush.

    Pathfinder 2E Regarding the complexity of Pathfinder 2

    I have a natural filter for unintuitive, unnecessary rules in general. Another thing likely not intended, but missed because the PF2 book is so insanely huge.

    Pathfinder 2E Regarding the complexity of Pathfinder 2

    This is the kind of thing I'm talking about. I did not even know parrying caused an AoO. Is it a move or manipulate action? If so, that is getting excised out. Stupid.

    Pathfinder 2E Another Deadly Session, and It's Getting Old

    Retreater, Remember the 3rd book in Age of Ashes if you get there. Near the end. You'll be back here with another TPK. If your group survives, I want to hear about it. That encounter was the most vicious in the AP so far. If you run it by the book with everything reacting in an expected manner...

    Pathfinder 2E Regarding the complexity of Pathfinder 2

    PF2 could use some clean up. The makings of a very good game are there, but the book Paizo released has far too much in it written in a sometimes strange way. The community should do some clean up work and advise Paizo to clean up and shorten the book. Some examples of half-assed rules: 1...

    Pathfinder 2E Regarding the complexity of Pathfinder 2

    Good to hear you finally saw it. I didn't see it until lvl 11 on my bard, but a bard is not as built for blasting. Bards have a lot of other abilities than blasting, so wasn't important. Yeah. Wizards and sorcerers still need some help at those early levels. I keep telling myself I plan to build...

    Pathfinder 2E Another Deadly Session, and It's Getting Old

    Age of Ashes is tougher than Extinction Curse. It seems because it was designed early, the encounter balance system was a little off. They have some real out of whack encounters. If we didn't have a Champion and a Cleric, I think the early modules would have killed us. Both of those classes are...

    Pathfinder 2E Another Deadly Session, and It's Getting Old

    Not unless your players are extraordinarily good with a well optimized party including a Champion and a Cleric or a good caster who can split the battlefield. It is very rough if you're a group of loosely organized players with mostly martials and some kind of healer.

    Pathfinder 2E Regarding the complexity of Pathfinder 2

    Why would you need computerized help? I wonder what you're table looks like. I run things very quickly. I use a pencil to quickly keep track of conditions and modifiers. It takes some memorization, but PF2 is more of a priority list than a need a computer to track everything. The way you...

    Pathfinder 2E Regarding the complexity of Pathfinder 2

    Aren't you playing Extinction Curse? I'm surprised your players haven't found a lot of AoE opportunities in that AP. I'm playing the same one and they have way more AoE opportunities than Age of Ashes. Extinction Curse is a more cohesive series of modules with a good mix of hard and average...

    Pathfinder 2E Regarding the complexity of Pathfinder 2

    PF2 isn't difficult. But it does have a lot of little rules to remember. You don't really need to run them all like some codified law to make the game work. I generally handwave medicine checks when time is not limited. As far as combat, it runs quickly and easily. I think PF2 is mostly a...

    Pathfinder 2E Is this a fair review of PF2?

    1st to 4th won't give you a big feel for your character. You could play any of them 1st to 4th. Those levels are rough for all classes. You spend a lot of time kissing the dirt.
