I'm a little apprehensive.

I'm most worried about hero lab dropping hero lab and doing pathfinder 2.0 in hero lab online. i've tried the online one for starfinder and i don't like it as much. not by a long shot.

changing action economy is...... interesting. i'll be curious how that plays out. sounds like iterative attacks are going away.

I REALLY hope they don't start going with leveled equipment like starfinder. i really dislike that.

Not judging till I see more information. I have felt 2.0 coming for a year or two. Starfinder was just the beacon that said get ready. The action economy thing looks like a boiling down. Probably a move and single attack or the stand here and full attack action still the basic combos.
I spent a lot of time during the Beta of PF1, but I was between jobs then. I am hoping not to have enough time to contribute this time.

I was hoping for a story jump to offer a better jump in point. That was one of the appeals of SF.

Also, not looking forward to the Wizard nerf. If a properly played Wizard high level Wizard isn't measurably the most powerful class, that breaks logic without some in story "weakening" of magic. But I bet it is coming.

well if we get the play test stuff count me in. need to read up on this and see if they are starting with season 1 again - converting the old stuff to new, or like core run it parallel to each other

Once PF2 hits (August of 2019), all new scenarios will be PFS2 and can only be played with PF2 PCs. PF1/PFS1 scenarios can continue to be played with PF1 PCs.

From the casual player's point of view, I'm both super excited at getting something new (still very much like SF, just haven't had much time recently), and kinda bummed my old characters and books will slowly become obsolete.

I really like the sound of the new character creation methods.

Would be very interested in play-testing.

I got my preorder in also.

And hey did you guys read wendsday's blog? Looks like they will be rewarding those faithful gms that put in the time to get their stars for pf1. It is definitely good news, I think.
