    Pathfinder 2E Is it time for a new Pathfinder Setting?

    Making generic modules has been tried in the past, and generally hasn't been very successful. Different games, even different branches off the same D&D tree, make for different pacing requirements and have different assumptions about how the world works. I mean, it'd function, but it wouldn't...

    Pathfinder 2E Discussing a new PF2 healing paradigm

    I'll just add as a point of order that you can't Refocus three times in order to get all your Focus points back. The Refocus activity can only restore Focus spent since you last Refocused or had your daily preparations. So a character with two Focus points but nothing that lets them recover both...

    So, Wandavision?

    My impression was not that this was a deliberate ploy on Agatha's part — she certainly doesn't seem happy with being assaulted the way you'd expect a villain with an absorption power to be. You'll also note that the charge leveled against her by the coven is "stealing magic above her age and...

    Pathfinder 2E Is it time for a new Pathfinder Setting?

    It does seem rather unlikely, given how they are integrating Golarion/Lost Omens into the core products more than they did in PF1, and how they're releasing significant rules add-ons as part of the Lost Omens line (e.g. Character Guide or the new Ancestry Guide).

    So, Wandavision?

    Do we? There's a subtle thing going on that I didn't notice until it was pointed out elsewhere: different places have different aspect ratios. Inside the hex started out as 4:3, and changed to 16:9 (or thereabouts — basically, it's full-screen on my monitor) when it changed to color. But the...

    Pathfinder 2E Is it time for a new Pathfinder Setting?

    In Golarion's defense, it's good at what it does, which is to provide a framework for a diverse assortment of adventure paths. This is a world that has room for warring genies (Legacy of Fire), gothic horror (Carrion Crown), exploring jungles and lost ruins (Serpent's Skull), pirates (Skull &...

    Pathfinder 2E Is it time for a new Pathfinder Setting?

    Yes and no. Some regions have quite a bit of cohesion, at least in sub-parts. For example, Geb, the Mana Wastes, and Nex sort of form a "unit" where things outside are fairly irrelevant to the internal stuff going on, and I fully expect there to be an AP set in that part after Strength of...

    Pathfinder 2E Is it time for a new Pathfinder Setting?

    FR is significantly more... I guess "coherent" is as good a word as any. Forgotten Realms has a core region that's pretty much "standard D&D", basically the north-west corner of Faerûn (the Vast, Cormyr, Sembia, the Dalelands, the Moonsea, the Dragon Coast, and the Sword Coast (previously known...

    Pathfinder 2E Is it time for a new Pathfinder Setting?

    I mean, they already release everything mechanical under the OGL. They just don't have a convenient community showcase like the DM's Guild. And I'm not sure how much that aspect of the Guild helps (compared to just being able to do D&D stuff without having to concern yourself with the legalities...

    Is The One Ring 2E Kickstarter going to break the records?

    It depends, I think. If you offer a product on Kickstarter and say "This'll cost $150 once the Kickstarter is done, but if you support us here you'll get it for $100", and then keep selling it for $100 once the Kickstarter is done, that could be considered false marketing. The situation is, of...

    D&D General Adam Bradford, Lauren Urban, Todd Kenrick Leave D&D Beyond

    It's probably easier for people who have played previous games, but I do not feel I'd be ready to run Cortex Prime as is. To use a more concrete example, it's like the difference between running Edge of the Empire and Genesys. I could do something that comes really close to Edge using Genesys...

    Is The One Ring 2E Kickstarter going to break the records?

    I made an edit to my post while you were replying. You use Kickstarter a bit differently from many others, and that clearly works for you. And sure, when the product being sold is a $7 PDF/$20 softcover, you probably don't need to make sure customers are getting paid while the crowdfunding is...

    Is The One Ring 2E Kickstarter going to break the records?

    One month means anyone who gets paid monthly will get at least one paycheck during the course of the kickstarter and can put some money away for it, if they have the means. Of course, this matters more if we're talking a big-money kickstarter where you have $100 or $200 pledges than "65...

    Is The One Ring 2E Kickstarter going to break the records?

    ... unless you're Disney and can bribe enough congressmembers to extend copyright indefinitely that way when Steamboat Willie gets close to becoming public domain. Should be about time for another extension now.
