131 – re:view Pathfinder 2 Playtest

We review the Pathfinder 2 playtest.

Check below for a ready-to-run version of the first playtest adventure, with annotations that make it mostly a system neutral one page dungeon.

Here’s an affiliate link to Beyond the Wall, the vv interesting OSR game discussed in the episode.

Things We Liked

The daily/long rest thing. No more resting in dungeons. When you take a sleep, you get to prepare your daily spells and such, and you get back some hp based on level. After a really long rest, like a week, you do a reset.

Action economy. It’s aesthetically pleasing and less confusing to explain to newbies than 5e’s economy.

Things We Didn’t

Well, pretty much everything else, but here are a couple zingers.

Rules for walking and talking at the same time:

Insane rules written by and for robots from another dimension:
