Pathfinder 2e Speculation

Paizo has announced Pathfinder 2e, with a year long public playtest.
PFS is gonna get a pretty major shakeup, and after season 10, there will be no new content for 1st edition characters.

Some speculations to get us started
  • The Skald, Brawler, and Slayer will be folded into the Bard, Monk, and Ranger respectively, as Archetypes are now Core
  • The new books will follow Starfinder's lead and have the setting integrated into the rules
  • Paladins are going to lose their spells in favor of a system like Monk Ki Powers
  • Cantrips/Orisons are going to be removed
  • Spell durations will become more abstract to fit with the new action economy system
I build characters as weird as possible.  If that is a bother,  I've heard 4th edition is pretty good this time of year.

While I am not opposed to them redoing PF to make it more streamlined and fix a lot of issues, the thought of having to buy all new stuff is depressing, along with not being able to convert my existing characters to 2E really sucks.  I do like a couple of the proposed changes, but I think we should take part in the playtest so we have some input on the final product (maybe prevent blunders akin to the Shifter from ever happening again.)
Willaxyn (Gnome) - 7 Draconic Sorcerer
Rajsaphix 4/5 Nagaji Bloodrager/Sword-Saint
Enigo Minituya - 5/4/2 Mouser/MoMS/Spiritualist
Mirka - 3/3 Or/itch "Gypsy"
Koldir - 3 Bloodrager/Sorc CORE
Xandon - 5 Thassilonian Greed Mage
Qaraja al-Magrabi 1 1/2orc Illusion Wizard CORE

I'm going to be keeping an open mind. PFS 1st Edition has a couple of more seasons yet to go. 😀
