⚡⚡⚡ Support TOS 2nd for the Pathfinder 2nd edition ⚡⚡⚡

Post by admin » Wed Mar 07, 2018 10:28 am

Paizo has released the PlayTest the 2nd edition of PathFinder!

I have started building a new tool called TOS 2nd to support this new system but I need your support to finance the months of work required to build this tool. By helping me out, you will not only gain early access to this new tool, but will also see your forum subscription time increase as well. ALL those who contribute for the development phase of TOS 2nd will have their names and/or nicknames (your choice - see FAQ) appear in this new tool as an official supporter of this Project!

There are many aspects to such a project.. not only the tool itself, but everything related to it must also be worked on! With the release date looming ahead, I started working on things that I could while I was waiting for this release. Below, you'll find my progress report, which I will update as I go along. I estimate I will need a couple of months of work before I can release the first alpha.


You can grab the free PlayTest rules on paizo's site, of click here to get the whole bundle from my server, or here if you want only the RuleBook.

FAQ:
Q #1: Will you be making a character sheet for the 2nd edition of Pathfinder?
A #1: 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.

Q #2: When will this new sheet release? How much will it cost?
A #2: 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!

Q #3: I already have TOS+/TOS FIVE: Can I get this new tool for free?
A #3: 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.

Q #4: I don't want you to use my real name when I contribute!
A #4: Certainly!! I can use your nickname in the credits - OR nothing at all if you wish to remain anonymous!

Q #5: Will you be putting the names of the sponsors in any particular order?
A #5: Yes - They will be listed by the weight (high to low!) of their Contribution to this project.

Q #6: If I contribute twice, do you add the amounts?
A #6: Absolutely! But consider that when PayPal takes their "cut", one part of it is a fixed amount...

Q #7: I really want to help out, but I can't afford it. Can I still help?
A #7: 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!

Q #8: I see you found an image for the face of TOS 2nd?
A #8: Yes!! I posted the details about this new image HERE!

Q #9: What are the main differences in the new edition?
A #9: This covers it:
SpoilerShow
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 edition!

Feel free to post any questions you have regarding this subject, below!

I am no fan of the use of "Ancestry" to denote the Race in the Paytest... and I posted about my dissatisfaction here on the Paizo forum! Feel free to comment if you agree with me but if you LIKE the use of ancestry, keep quiet!!! LOL

Folks!

There is really a ton of DATA to add ... While I can certainly add this data, it does eat up much time, which I would like to divert for the important stuff, like class creation!

Would anyone be willing to help me out by entering DATA? I'll provide all the details of what I need and the workbook where to add it... This will help speed up the 'readiness' of TOS 2nd - THANKS!!

I am happy to report that I have completed ALL of the 12 Classes! *whew*.
My next task will be to focus on the zillions of feats that these classes can choose... HEHHE

Your financial help is always welcome to support this project! Details in the top post.

Happy Gaming!
