Smoke and Sail: a Pathfinder 2e Naval Warfare Sourcebook

Smoke and Sail: a Pathfinder 2e Naval Warfare Sourcebook A brilliant book for a set of rules not fully set out for 2e yet. Very impressed with the work that has gone into this with a lot of thought on how combat is run, and how new rules changes would mix it up and make it free like 2e ship combat. I didn’t enjoy Starfinder ship combat, but this feels a little more interesting and there is more than just combat rules. What I love (with not too many spoilers) - Special Ship Ammo, is a brilliant twist on just firing adds a new element on what to use and how to really cripple or sink a ship. (Ale Shot is one I enjoy a lot) - Special magic items like Sails, Anchors, and crow nests. Really setup a cool way to augment and customise your ship and gives ideas and flavour for a GM to customise some special stuff. - How actions and reactions are worked into each ship role, there is a lot of high-level play that can be worked out if the team really want to be the best pirates out there. If you’re looking to run ship combat this is the book for y...

Smoke and Sail: a Pathfinder 2e Naval Warfare Sourcebook I am part of the game that is running these rules and they are working fantastically. The naval combat feels dynamic and there's always something to do, like Starfinder's ship system but streamlined for PF2e. I like the assumptions made and the generalizations should apply to most games and are easy to shake up if not. Overall, an excellent product that fills a specific niche not really covered in the game's systems and should appeal to anyone out to get some booty!

Kineticist: Power of the Elements

Kineticist: Power of the Elements So far I am loving this. Kineticist is my favorite 1e class, and this does a pretty good job of converting and expanding the class. Now if this had a Foundry VTT module, I would so get it, though not sure how much demand there would be for it.

The Feathered Valley

The Feathered Valley This is a decent attempt at a level 0 adventure. Considering it's the only one for PF2e currently out, I say it's the best one yet :) Sure, there's a few minor annoying things, like typos, missing words, missing monster indicators or threat levels in few places. However, this is also an adventure that brings the same atmosphere of a harsh, frozen tundra and ruthless prehistoric tropical fauna that is prezent in "Quest for the Frozen Flame" adventure path. As such, it's a great tie-in, and surprisingly varied and exciting for level 0. The background locations and characters, though not nearly as expansive as one in official Paizo releases, are convincing, and PCs themselves are neither authoritative adventures the social life revolves around that we're used to, nor downtrodden rebels in a gritty setting. They are just a group of youths from their following who want to prove themselves. More importantly to me, this module tries its best to incorporate...

Practically Perfected Panache: Swashbuckling Refined

Practically Perfected Panache: Swashbuckling Refined So, just to start - this product has some *super interesting* ideas, and even though I think it needs work I **would recommend** picking it up! It's fun and flavorful, even though it could use work **16 styles** - Great flavor, Love the ideas, Could use a balancing pass. All but a couple of these are really evocative, they *feel* like cool swashbucklers. At the very least I thought "this is cool" for all but one of them. The balance of them is by and large at least... reasonable. A couple like Candelabrist and Dour Militant are *very specific* in their flavor and expected playstyle. Some of the others feel like they're practically *giving* away panache, at least one is guaranteed panache while others will pretty much passively end up giving you panache for just striking people. Other than these criticisms, they're *really flavorful* - and I think only one of them is poorly-balanced enough to actually warrant changes at my table. Would recommend, but about ha...

Character Classes: Ironclad

Character Classes: Ironclad *If you're looking to play a tank without the trappings of divinity found within the Champion the Ironclad is the class for you!* Amazing work here. The Ironclad is a class I could see printed in a Paizo product tomorrow. It's both unique and well polished. **Everything I Wanted** Step aside Champion because Pathfinder 2e has a new defender ready to step up and stand in front of the blows for his allies. The Ironclad is a tank through and through, but unlike other Tanks such as the Champion or Barbarian it doesn't fret with attempting to draw the enemies ire, it simply steps in the way of their aggression. Take that willingness to eat the blows for your allies, couple it with a plethora of feats for armor, shields, and stances and you've got yourself a unique defender. Raise two shields into the air with Double Shield bash or lay a two-handed polearm over the top of your shield in Phalanx Stance, either way you're going to be killing it as an Ironclad. Not o...

Kineticist: Power of the Elements
by Malcolm R.

Kineticist: Power of the Elements Kineticist has always been one of my favorite classes in 1e, and other third party books have tried to update it for 2e, sure. Some come out better than others, though I find some are far more complicated than is warranted for the new design philosophy. This book, however, doesn't fall into the complexity trap, and does the class justice! While I first had reservations about it being a bounded caster, I was won over with the execution of the concept, as well as how the book handles both form and substance infusions. My only gripe, although it doesn't affect my rating, is that it doesn't include Aether as a focus, but considering Aether was too weird and different that Kingmaker didn't bother translating it either, I hardly blame the author. I do, however, appreciate the sidebar that comes with suggestions for making telekineticists work with some elbow grease, though! All in all, solid book, well made class, best example of a third party kineticist for Pathfinde...

The Haunting of Blackthorn Manor

The Haunting of Blackthorn Manor I found and prepped this on a time crunch! I had a player unable to come to a session, but the other two said they still wanted to play. I didn't feel up to making something up, so I found this adventure and read through it fast. I felt like I had a good handle on the story after one read-through and didn't need to consult much more than the stat blocks while actually running it. One 4th-level monk and one eighth-level fighter (they pulled in some weird old characters for this) went through this pretty easily, but there was enough challenge and interest that they ended up really liking it. I like that there were multiple ways to solve a variety of problems and built-in buffs, like making smart decisions and looking around to find ghost touch oil and that sort of thing. There's definitely a pacifist run of this (except perhaps the first run-in with undead) and I really appreciate it. This is clearly written, interesting without being too complex, and beautifully illus...

Mythic 2e
by VINCENT M.
Publisher: Paizo
Date Added: 04/18/2022 18:01:23
Mythic 2e This migration of the Mythic ruleset from P1 has promise. The document needs polish in two different ways, however. First, and simplest, is some corrections to grammar and spelling; for instance, instead of "Heirophant" the path should be "Hierophant." The second is in regards to mechanics, where a lot of P1 mechanics are referenced that do not exist, or are greatly changed, in P2. Some examples: * There are a number of references to "bardic performances," but there are no such things in P2. The closest analog are composition cantrips or composition spells (bard focus spells), but the way their durations work is vastly different from P1's bardic performance, to the point where the abilities as defined don't make sense to use on a composition cantrip/spell. - EDIT: This is addressed in the 18 Apr 2022 update. * There are number of references to provoking "attacks of opportunity," but AoO works very differently from P1. Not all chara...

Kitsune of Golarion

Kitsune of Golarion This book is an absolute gem. The fluff is delightfully fluffy, and the crunch is quite satisfying. A must-have resource for anyone who wants to play (or run for) a kitsune character. My one minor criticism is that the nine-tailed scion dedication feat feels a little too powerful. No other archetype dedication feat gives both cantrips and the basic spellcasting benefits. While I recognize that this is in exchange for the fact that the dedication feat gives no other benefits, granting additional spell slots seems overmuch. Of course, I have no idea what would be best put in its place to separate out "basic nine-tailed spellcasting" its own feat like most spell-granting archetypes give....

Queerfinder Issue 1: Bars of Absalom This is an amazing magazine and a great opener for the Queerfinder team, giving a great balance between player and GM options with plenty of new items, maps and NPC's to draw from. No matter who you are, if you're playing or running PF2 there's going to be something here for you.

Well-Rounded Rogues: Jacks and Jills of All Trades

Date Added: 03/29/2022 00:19:02
Well-Rounded Rogues: Jacks and Jills of All Trades Of the six rackets presented in this text, I personally think that all of them provide great inspiration and benefit to players and GMs looking to diversify their rogues’ toolkit. However, the fault of this comes from beyond the mechanical text, as some of the features and feats are uninspired and difficult to parse, save for a few. In addition to being laid out in such a way that is both very familiar and yet quite divergent from Paizo’s typical style, the choices in some of the design here make it hard to gather what the author is conveying and why it wasn’t written as it was. I like the concepts here. Who wouldn’t want to try playing a preacher who whacks fools upside the head with a holy text that deals precision damage? Why, a rogue whose incredible memory and dubious familiarity with the law are weapons in their arsenal? Sign me up! These rackets have great potential for roleplay and interesting game mechanics. However, I feel that this is true for only four of the six rackets....

Character Classes: Inquisitor

Character Classes: Inquisitor Prefacing this by saying I'm on mobile right now, so apologies for any typos or wonky formatting. Also this is all my personal opinion, and I am just an internet rando so take everything with a grain of salt please. This is also my first review, so maybe make that two grains of salt. To start off with there was a lot I enjoyed about this class. Flavor-wise, it's excellent and as someone who would really like to see a bounded Wisdom caster in play this just hit the spot. I think where it works it does a great job of filling in a space between Champion and Cleric with its own unique aesthetic. I liked the setup for the different Inquisitons; they give the class a very nice, flexible feel. Similarly I like that it gives the option to make either Dex or Str your class ability boost. It really feels like the writers took the time to consider different wants and playstyles, which is both impressive and appreciated. The framework for it is also very well done. What holds me back ...
