Apparently it runs really well on the Foundry VTT.Does PF have tools that automate the crunch the way D&D does? And (assuming you’re not a rules lawyer who actually cares about such stuff) how badly would the game break if you just ignore a ton of the rules and play it as de-facto D&D? Because while people online love to argue and obsess over rules minutiae, my experience in the real world is that most people don’t care at all about if they’re remembering all of their modifiers and calculating their gestalt bonuses correctly and all that fiddly stuff.
It's the one alternative that's available and known, with a significant player network and VTT support, and basically fills the D&D genre.I really like D&D-ish games but going for an even more "fiddly" system is baffling (to me, speaking as a DM/GM). But then I don't get kids these days...

Although where are Pelgrane Press in all this? If ever there was a time to try and drum up some interest in 13th Age now would be the time.
Yes I don’t understand this, as I found 5E to be an improvement from 3EI really like D&D-ish games but going for an even more "fiddly" system is baffling (to me, speaking as a DM/GM). But then I don't get kids these days...
Aside from what I said above for many players it may be sort of the next stage in the cycle of their gaming careers.Yes I don’t understand this, as I found 5E to be an improvement from 3E.
I would understand if they were jumping ship to DCC, but PF sees like a cumbersome choice to go to. I only have the original edition of PF and that feels very much in the 3E family, so I’m unsure if PF2 is that much differen.
PF2 does have the resources and visibility on the shelves however, as well as supported organised play, so I guess that is why it’s the most logical one for them to grab
Goodman Games needs to get more titles on the game shop shelves right now, and I think it would quickly rise as a contender!
Would you mind sharing links or a quick summary of what happened? This is all news to me.With regards to Warhammer, them losing interest in the Old Word was one the best things that happened with WFRP 4E. The Old World was dead in GW's mind, so they didn't have the issues Chris Pramas had with 2E, where he had GW insisting he had to line things up with the mini game.
4th edtion was being developed after Games Workshop had killed off Warhammer Fantasy Battle and replaced it with Age of Sigmar. As GW wasn't making anything in the Old World, it freed up Cubicle 7 to set 4E in the time of 1st Edition.Would you mind sharing links or a quick summary of what happened? This is all news to me.
BTW, who else thinks that there would be stills from the D&D movie in DnDone's books?
I have...I never seen a girl who looked so much like they belonged on the cover of Mad Magazine
It's like, Codega needs to, like, stop using "like" when she's, like, describing something, like, something that actually happens/happened, because it's like-ly to drive her editor, like, insane!NPR dropped a piece on the ongoing situation yesterday.
(transcript on the page for those who don't want to spend 8 minutes listening to it)
Well, if they like it so much, I'm sure Paizo wouldn't begrudge them this small pleasure...as long as it's no-strings-attached!WotC really does like handing money to Paizo, huh. (Seriously I had just come to this thread to post the same tweet)
I also noted yesterday that there were no Pathfinder 2 core books on my local game store bookshelf.When I was in the bookstore today, I saw that some of the Pathfinder stuff was gone. So there’s some anecdotal and then the hearsay from other people about what they are seeing on the ground. Big self-inflicted wound on Wizards part, and they are waiting around for survey results they already know the answers to.
