Pathfinder 2’s game system has its roots in three early AD&D games: the Expert Gamers Guide (EGG), Classic AD&D, and Fourth Edition. But its playability was strengthened by years of experience with the ever-evolving online game that is Pathfinder, a roleplaying-game version of the Pathfinder RPG rule-set.
The game of Pathfinder 2 is designed to let you enjoy the core rules in more depth, without worrying about memorizing dozens of new rules. It offers faster play, fewer pages of rules, more story, more player interaction, and more communication with your players.
Pathfinder 2 provides options for character generation, from a single, non-drow character to a fully-drow character ready for granddaddy roleplaying. As an option, a list of Encounter XP can be added to the game, providing more opportunities for adventuring, as well as more combat encounter variation.
Pathfinder 2 also gives you the option to create a game where everyone plays their own character, or everyone plays a character together. In either case, everyone still takes their notes from their character sheet, but will choose from a list of free-form notes and memory aids that fit their character.
Pathfinder 2 can create and manage dozens of campaigns, characters, NPCs, monsters, and player notes. It works as a single-document campaign framework, letting you build, and manage, a rich campaign from start to finish.
The advantages of Pathfinder 2 over Pathfinder become more obvious as the game progresses, as it is easier to build your own campaigns, characters, and monsters, while your players gain experience and grow.
Pathfinder 2 – The Basics
Pathfinder 2 is a very solid, easy-to-learn, easy-to-play, and affordable game system. It is an open-ended system, allowing you to play a character for as long as you want to. You can start a character from scratch, with full racial characteristics, or build a character that reflects your own experience and outlook on the world. You can even give your character an accent.
Pathfinder 2 is a quick-play roleplaying game, with a simple combat system that allows players to quickly resolve clashes. With just a few symbols, characters can fight at medium range with no disadvantages or penalties, and attacks with advantage. A few turns later, the loser is rolled over, and a new enemy appears.
