  1. I've looked into the two Wizard guides, and sadly they both have some egregious errors (misunderstandings how the game works) that make them very problematic and certainly less than useful.

    1. It will be certain useful if you'd point out such errors.

      Delete
    2. If you mean the things in the Principia Arcana that have those big red "this may not be accurate" warnings - seems like they've gone out of their way to point it out dude

    3. Whoever posted this has no idea what he is talking about. That foundation in the unknown guide is one of the most comprehensive I've ever seen.

    4. I spent much of the last two hours reading through "Principia Arcana" from end to end. For all of it yet to be completed, it is a comprehensive, well researched and thoughtful guide, which shows incredible attention to detail and design insight.

      If there are flaws, they are those of which come from attempting authoritative documentation in a living system. As a sysadmin, I know the pain.

  2. RPG Bot Dwarven Ancestry: Dwarven Weapon Familiarity is wrong.

    DWF lowers Martial to Simple & Advanced to Martial like all the other Racial Weapon Familiarity feats.

    1. You should let him know there! I don't make the guides, I just link to them.

      Delete
  3. I mean a lot of RPGBot guides contain mistakes. It's actually not a new trend, and it likely won't change. Perhaps a disclaimer?
    Also the Tools section could benefit from a separate header, as it seems to have GM guides still listed under Character Creations.

  4. You should remove Edna's Guide since it is inaccessible

  5. That Wizard guide is nuts! 2e has been for like 2 months and someone already has a fucking novel on a single class.

    No lifer but props.

    1. Thanks, added! Do you have a forum post on it somewhere?

    2. Nah, not really. I just keep document open for comments :)

    3. Hello again. I remade the guide into guide on all spells of all traditions. Can you please rename it to Kicking Ass with Style and Staves: Spell Analysis

  8. RPGBot has been updated with guides for familiars, animal companions, monks, and barbarians

    1. The one about familiars is pretty bad. The section of familiars in the Principia Arcane wizard guide does a much better job.

      Delete
    2. The RPGBot guides appear to have been written by someone who has never played 2E and is stuck in very much a 1E mindset.

      They display significant lack of understanding of the new action system and the new character creations system. For example they are filled with recommendations to "dump" stats. That is pretty much not a thing anymore. You have to really go out of your way to have a stat below 10 and it is nearly always Ancestry dependent.

      This is not 1E when "dumping" was better for min maxers because it gained you points back to spend on other stats.

      Delete
    3. Note that if you're playing with a GM who allows taking voluntary flaws, you can take two penalties to net one extra boost, so the min-maxers of the world *can* get points back to spend on other stats...

  9. Here is another Alchemist Guide I have come across.
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1lrI1-mzDG_beKwCxxmT5bjsMMtMwVixuZmiVUwhALsg/edit

    It does not really have a discussion thread but it does have this reddit thread from where the author first showed off his guide.

  11. Here is a guide to the Pathfinder 2e sorcerer by TheGentlemanDM.

    The Gentleman's Guide to Blood Magic: The PF2 Sorcerer
    https://www.reddit.com/r/Pathfinder2e/comments/escrb5/the_gentlemans_guide_to_blood_magic_the_pf2/

    TheGentlemanDM has also made a series of character builds called “Not Good, Still Awesome” that could be worth adding to the “Builds” section.

    Not Good, Still Awesome: The Grenadier Grandma Build

  14. I realize it's early on, but I sense a predisposition against Clerics (i.e. no guides for them)! lol
