    PF2E Pace of fighting

    I don't deny that players of casters would give up on casting those spells against higher-level creatures, but I do question whether that's wise. I've seen making a scary brute creature blind, even for just 1 round, negating 1 or 2 scary crits and hits and knockout on more than 1 occasion, and...

    PF2E Pace of fighting

    The way the math works in PF2, a creature 3 levels higher than the party hits like a truck. You definitely feel like it's dishing out nearly as much damage as your entire party combined, and that each of you can only chip away at it. A crit will take a character from full health down to 0.

    PF2E Pathfinder 2e: Actual Play Experience

    Yes, awarding Hero Points 1/hour and reminding my players to use them for rerolls and to stabilize, moved the game from Dark-Souls-punishing bordering on feeling unfair, to tough and exciting. They are a default rule so definitely use them.

    PF2E Pathfinder Bestiary 2 Preview

    Oh, yay, it looks exactly like the same things they did with PF1. On top of that, they're trying to be 5E. AND just repeat what they did with PF1. Yeah.

    PF2E PF 2 Demo- Curiosity wins out

    To the OP who was interested in simulated high level play, check out this guy's reports over at the Paizo forums. High level play sounds dramatic and exciting without getting as bogged down as PF1: https://paizo.com/threads/rzs42poa?Level-20-Test

    Roll20 Reports First Drop For D&D

    Can there be a Pathfinder 1E tag instead of a generic "Pathfinder" tag, just there is a "2E" tag? The 2 systems are quite different, and the current labels might be causing some confusion.

    General Write a Plot Hook that's a terrible pun designed to earn groans and thrown dice.

    I don't know if you've seen this but this has been circulating. Some good ones here: https://me.me/i/d-d-adventure-premises-inspired-by-stupid-bear-puns-premise-a-7d03dd85273a4dd8848ba546218afe59

    As it turns out, hiding requires cover.

    Actually in 2e someone behind another creature is "screened." Perhaps this is why a different word is used, to limit the ability to hide behind someone?

    General Ed Greenwood: How The Realms Began

    This was so evocative and inspiring! I especially love your childhood "first glimpse" into the Realms! I was exposed to the Forgotten Realms via the computer games and didn't make much of them. But reading your words makes me see why they would have inspired and enjoyed by so many!

    PF2E A Few Images From Erik Mona's Pathfinder 2nd Edition Presentation At GAMA

    I am curious - what does "Math balanced across all 20 levels of play" mean? I believe this was part of the initial presentation for D&D 4e. My take is that it is to prevent near-automatic successes and failures. I don't know how this is accomplished without some flattening of the math, however.
