    Paizo A question about Paizo/PF adventure design

    I've mentioned this before, but my main group and I are 5E babies who got introduced to the hobby via Critical Role. I take issue with the idea that encounters "just work" in 5E: as has been noted in earlier threads, low level is deadly and higher levels become trivial unless you significantly...

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

    I just wanted to say, thanks for those detailed posts. I wouldn't even call myself a struggling GM (though I am newish compared to this venerable crowd as I started with 5E as a critical role baby), but I reaped a lot of valuable information from your posts. My players and I love Pathfinder 2...

    Pathfinder 2E Preparing Hellknight Hill

    Really solid post! Thanks so much for putting your thoughts into words! We just finished up Rise of the Rune Lords with my lazy conversion and I really wanted to try Age of Ashes next since it was made with 2E in mind; you've given me a lot to think about how I should run it!

    Pathfinder 2E Hero Points

    My players make extensive use of hero points for rerolls. The bit in the rulebook which says something along the lines of "The player must describe their heroic action" to get the reroll is awesome flavor and everyone loves it. I like to think I'm fairly generous in dolling them out, but only...

    Pathfinder 2E Pathfinder 2e: Actual Play Experience

    My players have finally hit level 9 so I thought I'd come back and answer some questions that was brought up about how mid level play was going. Just to recap what I said earlier in the thread, our group has been playing D&D 5e for about a year and a half so we're not "new," per say. We made the...

    Pathfinder 2E Rate Pathfinder 2E

    I rated it "excellent" based on player feedback. We've come from 5e and my players like the feats, a lot. Someone else in the thread said that they don't amount to much of anything, and that may be true, but players really, really, dig even the tiniest skill feat, let alone class feats that...

    Pathfinder 2E Playtest Four New Pathfinder 2E Classes

    I was guilty of this, but then we gave it a go because my players wanted more customization than 5e. I'm still not sold on PF2, but a lot of things I assumed turned out to be flat out wrong.

    Pathfinder 2E Pathfinder 2e: Actual Play Experience

    It's the feats. Running monsters is easy, but the npc's need feats to be properly scaled to the party. This means that I have to give the npc's flavorful abilities that players also have access to. I'll admit, when the players collectively nodded their heads and exclaimed "Oh... this mercenary...

    Pathfinder 2E Pathfinder 2e: Actual Play Experience

    Yeah I'm a DM coming from 5e. In an effort to keep interest with my players, I switched systems to 2E. What are your actual experiences in running the game? I guess we have 8 sessions under our belt now. We adopted the remnants of a 5E campaign where the party TPK'd so that the players could...

    D&D General Welcome Thread

    Hiya! I've been lurking for a long time, but I felt compelled to post in the Pathfinder forum; really excited about PF2 after coming from 5e since launch. Thought I'd post here and get back to lurking, haha.

    Is Pathfinder meant to be "boutique D&D?"

    I find this to be a fascinating conjecture so I ended my long time lurk to register and throw in my two cents. Once I read your post, I couldn't help but agree with your hypothesis. My group recently gave a test run on Pathfinder 2 after a long stint with 5e and we all were extremely excited...
