Updated the OP with more information regarding getting the Pathfinder (2.0) rules and/or Fantasy Grounds, including free options.
At the very least everyone will need:
- Guild Discord access
- An installed Fantasy Grounds client (can be unlicensed)
And I strongly suggest downloading the Age of Ashes players guide.
Everything else is gravy and will only heighten your enjoyment of the campaign.
Thanks for the interest guys.
Original OP: for um reasons
I bought the PDFs for the Pathfinder (2.0) material as well as the modules for Fantasy Grounds. I plan on running the Adventure Path Age of Ashes of which I have the first and second module. The follow up modules will be dropping in the next few months.
This will be a learning exercise first and for-most.
VTT Client: Fantasy Grounds (Ultimate License) (connectivity info will be provided later)
Game System: Pathfinder 2.0
- Pathfinder Second Edition Core Rules
- Age of Ashes Player’s Guide
- Pathfinder Lost Omens World Guide - Player Guide
Voice: OTG Guild Discord
Preferred Party Size: 4-6
Since I have an ultimate license for Fantasy Grounds, no one else requires their own licensed copy and will be able to connect to my game with an unlicensed version of the client. Upon connecting to my server they’ll be able to see the modules I have listed above so they can make their characters. If you wish to make your own characters when not connected to my server then you’ll have to have a licensed copy of Fantasy Grounds, and at the very least the Pathfinder Core Rulebook module/extension for Fantasy Grounds as well. The download link for the installer of Fantasy Grounds is here (no license required). At the very minimum, an unlicensed copy of Fantasy Grounds will be required
For the rules, you’ll be able to see all the player oriented material when connected to my game server. If you are really interested in the game then you can pick up the Pathfinder Core Rulebook at your favourite local gaming store or book store or even directly from Paizo. Paizo also provides all of their books in PDF form as a cheaper option from their webstore. Free playtest rules for 2nd Edition Pathfinder exist from a year or so ago, but I do not know how accurately they reflect the shipped rules. Here’s a link to a PDF of said playtest rules. Furthermore, Fantasy Grounds has a Pathfinder Core Rulebook module available for purhcase that contains all the material from the hardcover (or PDF) book but organized and viewable/usable from inside Fantasy Grounds client. None of this stuff is required.
(Edit) Another option for character creation is to make your character using offline rules and then manually entering your character on the server during session zero.
A freely available PDF of the Age of Ashes players guide is available from Paizo’s website here. It contains background info relevant to character creation for the campaign. Said character creation information will be available when connected to my game server.
I also have the Pathfinder Lost Omens World Guide and you’ll be able to utilize the character options listed in that book for the characters you make when connected to my server.
More material from Paizo is going to be shipped for Pathfinder (2.0) in the following months of this year. When that material becomes available, we’ll see about integrating it into the campaign and possibly allowing modifications to characters based on new rules and data.
The guild’s Discord info is available here, including a link to setting up and/or troubleshooting Discord. Discord will be required!
Keep in mind:
- I haven’t used Fantasy Grounds in a few years
- I’ve never played/GMed Pathfinder 2.0
- I’m a dick
It’ll be starting in a couple of months as that’ll give me time to read the core rules, world guide, and first module, as well as determine what new maps I have to make as well as figure out the tokens I’ll need.
We’ll figure out dates/times in the future. I raid in EQ three nights a week (Mon, Wed, Fri); I’ll be available pretty much any other times. This will be one night a week for about four hours or so.
Session 0 will include character creation/party planning and Q 'n A.
Post if yer interested! Thanks.
