Important Highlights

  • PF2 - Additional Creature Adjustments have been added as options in the NPC table of the same name, where Elite/Weak and the simple adjustments from Book of the Dead are located. Note that while these complex adjustments grant the stat modifications and abilities that their "Creating a..." sections describe, occasional decisions are left to the GM, such as whether claw/jaw attacks are appropriate to add for a ghoul version of a particular creature based on it having hands or a mouth.
  • PF2 - Abilities, weapons, and gear that use quantities will all now consume resources/uses upon making rolls with them. Thrown weapons will deduct from their stack when a ranged attack is rolled for them, and weapons with ammo loaded will consume a piece of the loaded ammunition. Like spells, abilities will consume a use upon making an attack roll if they require one, or when rolling damage otherwise.

The Nitty Gritty

Game Mechanics

  • PF2 - In the case that a GM wishes to apply a creature adjustment to a PC or PC-style character, an adjustment has been added to the Temporary Adjustments/Permanent Adjustments tables that will make the Creature Adjustments table display on the Ancestry tab. Creature Adjustments will function much as they do on NPCs, except any level modifications will only alter stat values, not modify the character's actual level.
  • PF2 - The "Variant Monster" table has been renamed "Variants & Optional Abilities" to more accurately reflect its purpose, as it allows the customization of optional abilities available to certain creatures/creature adjustments, such as ghosts. Additionally, for creatures with any of these optional abilities included in their statblocks, such as the ghost commoner having Frightful Moan or the default suite of graveknight abilities, these abilities will now be able to be removed from this table to allow for greater flexibility in customization.
  • PF2 - All werecreatures now have Change Shape abilities that allow activations to apply the changes for being in humanoid form or animal form.
  • PF2 - The Drink Blood ability of vampires can now be set to grant temporary HP when excess HP has been drained.

Bug Fixes

  • PF2 - The Champion Dedication feat was granting proficiency with your deity's favored weapon.
  • PF2 - The Wizard Dedication feat was granting the focus spell from the chosen arcane school.
  • PF2 - The persistent fire damage of the incendiary aura focus spell was too high.

Patch at 3:30pm Pacific

  • PF2 - Certain characters were experiencing a loading error if the Strength of Thousands branch version of Additional Lore had been added via one of the Additional Abilities tables.
  • PF2 - The Wizard Dedication feat was continuing to grant a focus point when an arcane school was selected, instead of when the ability to cast the focus spell was gained.
