: Will you be making a character sheet for the 2nd edition of Pathfinder?
: Yes I intend to create a new tool to support the 2nd edition of PathFinder! Since the PlayTest rules will be coming out first, that is what this new tool will be based on.
: When will this new sheet release? How much will it cost?
: As soon as possible! The PlayTest rules are coming out in August, so I'll be furiously hacking at the new tool the moment these rules come out. I need your financial help to support work on this project!
: I already have TOS+/TOS FIVE: Can I get this new tool for free?
: Like TOS FIVE is to TOS+, this is a new tool is a stand alone product, not part of any previous subscription. Active Contributors will gain access to the alpha/beta of this new tool should they wish to help out ironing out the bugs.
: I don't want you to use my real name when I contribute!
: Certainly!! I can use your nickname in the credits - OR nothing at all if you wish to remain anonymous!
: Will you be putting the names of the sponsors in any particular order?
: Yes - They will be listed by the weight (high to low!) of their Contribution to this project.
: If I contribute twice, do you add the amounts?
: Absolutely! But consider that when PayPal takes their "cut", one part of it is a fixed amount...
: I really want to help out, but I can't afford it. Can I still help?
: The financial help is really what helps me out the most - but once the tool is released, you can help out be reporting bugs and creating content!
: I see you found an image for the face of TOS 2nd?
: Yes!! I posted the details about this new image HERE
: What are the main differences in the new edition?
: This covers it:
At its core, the story of both games is essentially the same. You still build your own character, venturing off on daring adventures, risking your life for a chance at fame and glory, defeating deadly foes that threaten your friends, your family, and perhaps the very world itself. Beyond the narrative, there are many things that have changed, but mostly in the details of how the game works. You still pick a race, even though it is now called your ancestry. You still decide on your class—the rulebook includes all of the core classes from the First Edition Core Rulebook, plus the alchemist. You still select feats, but these now come from a greater variety of sources, such as your ancestry, your class, and your skills.
Where the changes really shine through is in how the game is played. Gone are the confusing action types like move, standard, swift, and immediate, instead replaced with a simple system of three actions and one reaction each round. All of the varied systems and formulas for determining your character's bonuses and statistics, like saving throws, attack bonuses, and skills, have been unified in a single, easy-to-use proficiency system based on your choices and your character's level. You no longer need to collect a specific set of magic items to be a balanced character, relying on specific magical statistic bonuses. Instead, you get all of the bonuses you need from your regular armor and weapons, allowing the rest of your items to be truly wondrous
So the second paragraph seems to indicate that the new system is streamlined and simplified. Like 5th
edition! So I guess that PF2nd is Paizo's answer to the WotC's 5th
