    Ah, I missed the KS in my excitement! I’d put my money on Deviant, Hunter, Mummy, but we shall see. Lots in the pipe for CofD right now!...

    Some thoughts on how to mix PF2’s magic with Eberron’s setting.

    Goblins are still generally antagonists, but the very first Adventure Path module for 2e features a goblin worshipping Desna. Seems to be a stated goal across all monster races to “humanize” (I need a better way to describe that) them a bit, although it will likely take time. Seems lizardfolk may be getting that treatment soon too, if you read between the lines.

    Ultimately, the alignment system is just a label. It seems more important because it is acknowledged diegetically and has been woven into the metaphysics of the Great Wheel, but it’s not actually necessary. Devils are tyranny embodied, both as rulers and as middle management. That key behavioural and personality trait is true whether you apply the lawful label to them or not. I, personally, would not get rid of the alignment spectrum because I’m a Planescape person and Planescape played with pushing alignments to their extreme, but it is 100% doable. You just ended up working with themes as...

    Oh, I agree they are part of the same philosophy. But I think some people would miss that. And there are people who blur the line, thinking that the universe is a big random mass with no purpose, but laws and rules are still important (that’s me actually). Now, I think that I personally fall in the neutral spectrum ethically, so that makes sense.

    I guess what I’m saying is that I’d like to see the law-chaos spectrum be explicitly called out as a combination of political/philosophical/metaphysical beliefs. They are all actually the same thing, but that helps ensure the breadth...

    Yeah, that’s my read as well. Authoritarian/anarchist is one logical consequence, but so is the “the universe is ordered and purposeful” and “the universe has no intrinsic meaning, so stop ascribing it one” dichotomy embodied by the pre-FW Fraternity of Order and the Bleak Cabal in Planescape. Putting law and chaos in terms of government does make sense... but I think putting it solely in those terms limits the alignment.

    And of course, even though we have nine alignments, the entire freaking this a spectrum anyhow....

    Well, Signs of Sorcery's hit Gold Best Seller on DTRPG and Shunned is sitting at Electrum. Dark Eras 2 is close to release. Changeling, Geist, and Contagion all did well on Kickstarter, plus Deviant is coming soon. And from my PoV as a writer on Mummy and Changeling, there is some awesome stuff working its way down the tube.

    I ain't worried. And I'd agree with Heavy about the shift away from Open Dev making things seem quieter....

    James does genuinely care about improving RPGs. And he has gotten very good at communicating with fans over the years. I really need to catch up on the ask JJ thread.

    Also, I would be 100% okay with gunslinger being rolled into the swashbuckler.

    Also also, even though the game was rebuilt from the bones up, I am fairly confident that I can hack Eberron and Planescape into PF2 with minimal fuss....

    Yeah, about that...

    As of 2e, Lamashtu only has CE worshippers and Rovagug’s must be CE or NE. I’m all for nuancing villains, especially if it creates fun and interesting storybooks, but both of those deities are staying solidly in villain territory. You can Rule 0 it if you like, but I don’t foresee tons of support for Lamashtu worshipping goblin PCs any time soon....

    So after almost completely turning me off of 2e by tweeting about that character sheet, you have now successfully convinced me to try it out for a while.

    Well done....

  • It’s release date is, as always, when it’s ready... but I usually take art showing up in the MMN (which is where this is from) as a good sign that things are getting close. It’s not a perfect indicator by any stretch, but it helps....
