Nitty Gritty Details

Hotfix - 2021/11/26

  • PF2 - Added the Mwangi Expanse Pantheons from the Paizo Blog "Gods of the Expanse": https://paizo.com/community/blog/v5748dyo6shqp

Major reorganization to improve character building

  • PF2 - The display of the Class Features table, along with the list features added by your core class choice (such as barbarian's Instinct) have been moved to a "[Class] Features Summary" tab in the Classes section. This provides a location in which to reference your general class features, and focuses the class tab towards selections you need to make for your character such as feats and spells.
  • Moved the Profile tab, which mostly contains character flavor, after the relevant mechanical tabs for the game (race, background, etc).
  • PF2 - The "Gear" tab has been moved to be the first tab in the Equipment section, to facilitate ease of new character creation by making the location one purchases Class Starting Kits more prominent. Both it and the Gear table have been renamed "Adventuring Gear".
    • The Personal Details section is now located on the Profile tab.
  • PF2 - When an item is added to a table, and that item adds a table of its own to pick something in, the added table will be grouped in the same block with its source pick.

Major enhancements to improve character building

  • Most validation messages on the Validation Report & character summary now link to where the problem is when clicked on.

Journal / Wealth & Experience

  • Renamed the Journal tab to "Wealth & Experience" or "Wealth & Karma" to provide greater clarity as to its function.
  • PF2/SF/PF1 - Moved the Wealth & Experience tab to the Classes group.
  • PF2 - Moved Starting Wealth from the My Classes tab to the Wealth & Experience tab.
  • PF2 - Re-arranged the journal to display the current values on the journal entry and added an info button to better explain journals.
  • PF2 - The "accept starting wealth" error message now turns the Wealth & Experience table yellow until it's satisfied.

Adding Table Item Improvements

  • Added messaging to the "add items" window indicating when you've chosen the correct number of items for tables with limits.
  • When adding items to a table, the next item in the list will be automatically selected after the chosen item disappears from the list.
  • When selecting items for a table with categories that must be drilled into (e.g. weapons), added a back button to the list header to make returning to the category list more discoverable. The header is now also outside of the scroll area, so it remains accessible even with the list scrolled down.
  • For empty tables made the message prompt clickable as an alternative path to add items
  • Items can now be sold/deleted from any table they appear in instead of just the table they were initially added through. The sell/delete confirmation window has some additional messaging for this case.

Gear Details Window Improvements

  • The details window for complex items such as Weapons and Armor has been split into 2 tabs: "Stats and Information", and "Edit and Configure" to better organize the large amount of options and information available.

Spell Improvements

  • PF2 - Added a marker for Signature Spells, both on the table where they are added to a class, and on the Play tab's spells table.

  • PF2 - The free advancement spells table on a spellbook now shows how many free spells are left to be chosen at each level at the top of the table and at the top of the spell's details while choosing advancement spells.

  • PF2 - A control to customize the number of spells a particular spellbook can hold is now available
  • PF2 - The spells on the play tab have been re-organized to reduce the number of small groupings
  • PF2 - Once a spell has been added to a spellbook, the selector to choose which type of spellbook this is is hidden, so that you can't accidentally make these spells invalid. This selector is also hidden for spellbooks where there's not a choice of spellbook type to be made, like a character who only has one type of spellbook-based spellcasting.
  • PF2 - On the class/spellcasting tabs, the level of a fixed-level spell now uses the same pill display that is used on the play tab

  • Changed the title of the side view when adding items to a table to 'Selections Made' for clarity.
