Looks like it was a typo since the text in the story has been changed. I’m pretty sure the eidolon advanced with you as you leveled in PF1, and it sounds like that’s still going to be the case in PF2.
 



This is why I hate new editons.

Let's sell you the exact same thing only in a much more inferior product. I wouldn't be this upset if they simply just continued to support PF1e but they abandoned it.

Can't we have an RPG company that does that? Support all editions? Heck if I owned D&D and/or Pathfinder, I'd support all the editions with new stuff. Not hard to do and would be extremely profitable. You lose no one and continue to gain customers who can actually pick and choose what edition suits their tastes and they keep coming to you because they want more for the edition they want to play.

Fractures the customer base. you lose economies of scale on each product; instead of selling lots of a few things, you're selling a few of lots of things. That's what TSR did, and look what happened to them.

Well, the opposite of that.

Pathfinder 1e lasted a decade, and the system it's based on is now two decades old. The amount of content that is compatible with D&D3e/PF1e is, frankly, insane. You could spend a lifetime trying to play it all and not run out of stuff.

Plus there is still a trickle of 3rd party stuff for 1e.

Contrary to what the naysayers seem to be suggesting, PF2 is not an "inferior product". It's very different from PF1, and also very different from DD3.5 (and DD4 and DD5, for that matter.

A lot of people who have actually given it a chance by playing in a PF2 campaign have good things to say about it. Here is not the place to extoll its virtues, however.

I am keen to see how they handle a dual character like the summoner and his eidelon. Many mistakes were made in the genesis of the PF1 summoner, to such an extent that they had to offer a revised version in PF Unchained, so as to avoid the hue and cry for major errata. Now, with the severe limits placed on typical "pet" classes in PF2, it's going to be very tricky indeed walking the tightrope between overpowered and over-nerfed.

But this sort of thing just goes to show how attentive and responsive to the fan base Paizo is, as a company and as individuals. I enjoyed DD3.5. I loved PF1. But PF2 has a lot more going for it than critics care to admit.
