    Roll20's Latest Numbers: Cthulhu Holding Strong!

    Yeah, PF2 players are mostly on Foundry now and they haven't published these kinds of stats by game system (that I am aware of).

    Level Up (A5E) [+] What features should a "Advanced 5E" have?

    I would love something that actually fulfills the original "modular elements of complexity" and "dials" concept of 5e before the design team mostly abandoned those ideas in exchange for simplicity. I want a PC that can feel like a 4e martial in play, for example. I want more meaningful character...

    Starfinder Starfinder Meets Alexa: A Review

    I tried this out this morning and it was surprisingly fun and engaging. I would definitely purchase more adventures in this format. Well done, Paizo!

    Pathfinder 2E Complexity vs. Depth -- A Look Inside Pathfinder 2nd Edition

    1. Time will tell for sure, but Paizo consciously tried to eliminate the huge power disparities between PF1 martials and spellcasters with PF2. Many who play spellcasters have been complaining they have been "nerfed" in PF2 (which is a good thing in my view). Martials seem much stronger. I doubt...

    Pathfinder 2E Complexity vs. Depth -- A Look Inside Pathfinder 2nd Edition

    Good question. I don't see them in the SRD either. Looks like an error. Messaged the site owner to ask. Received the following response from someone on Reddit: Most of the monsters aren't completed yet. If you look in the monster index tables, you'll see that most monsters have nothing listed...

    Pathfinder 2E Complexity vs. Depth -- A Look Inside Pathfinder 2nd Edition

    dave2008, it sounds like PF2 may not be for you, which is fine. I also like and play 5e but feel that PF2 brings a lot to the table for those who want a little more complexity, depth, and customization (similar to Morrus). You may want to check out the rules for free at http://2e.aonprd.com/ to...

    Pathfinder 2E Complexity vs. Depth -- A Look Inside Pathfinder 2nd Edition

    My feeling on complexity level is that PF2 is much less complex/fiddly than PF1 and a bit more complex/fiddly than 5e. However, for that modest increase in complexity over 5e, it offers a lot of additional depth and customization. For some, that trade off will be worth it, for others it won't be.

    Pathfinder 2E Complexity vs. Depth -- A Look Inside Pathfinder 2nd Edition

    1. Would you say this is true even taking into consideration more recent releases for 5e? Yes. Monsters just have a lot of cool and flavorful actions that make them interesting and more than just the "bag of HP" that many 5e monsters still are. For example, some skeletons can take off and throw...

    Pathfinder 2E Complexity vs. Depth -- A Look Inside Pathfinder 2nd Edition

    PF2 is definitely more "fiddly" than 5e (e.g. lots of small bonuses, four degrees of success, weapons and armor have individual traits, etc.). However, it also has significantly more depth and tactical options than 5e. I think it will run more slowly at first as you get used to the key words...

    Pathfinder 2E Are you moving from 5E to PF2?

    Yes, we are going to give PF2 a try. 5e is fun but, in some ways, overly simple. We will likely end up playing both systems.

    Is Pathfinder 2 Paizo's 4E?

    I believe Paizo is trying to create something similar to 5e, in terms of ease of learning and running it, but which also... 1. doesn't have bounded accuracy (becomes more "fantasy supers" at higher levels) 2. is directly tied into their Lost Omens/Golarian setting (which helps sell APs, their...

    Traveller 5th Edition Reprint Is Kickstarting

    I was part of the original T5 Kickstarter and felt really burned by the final product. It was an overly complex, nearly unplayable mess. Not going to waste another $100 on a revision, that's for sure.

    Pathfinder 2 Character Sheet #4: Seelah, Human Paladin

    Not sure I want to track damage to shields (dents) in detail. That seems *more* fiddly than even Pathfinder 1. Isn't this supposed to be an easier, faster, and streamlined version of the game? If so, I'm not seeing it.

    Skill Feats In Pathfinder 2

    This is the first blog post that made me feel like PF2 is not for me. I'm happy for those who seem to be getting what they wanted (high-level martials just as ridiculous as high-level spellcasters) but, for our table, the legendary skills seem like they would turn the game into a cartoon...

    Pathfinder 1E Returning to D&D 3.75 er I mean Pathfinder

    I love D&D 5e because it is an absolute dream for a DM to run with little prep. However, after our 5e session tonight (Storm King's Thunder), my wife requested we go back to Pathfinder. I asked her why. She explained: I love buying and using powerful and diverse magic items. We have all of...

    D&D 5E Flanking - Do you use it, and if so how?

    I like using miniatures and having more tactical options in combat. However, I don't like the optional DMG flanking rules because flanking (with advantage) is too easy to get. My flanking house rule (which requires the expenditure of a bonus action) is: Creatures flanking an enemy can perform a...
