The nice thing about pathfinder 1 is that it's open source, so while Paizo may not be supporting it any longer anyone else is welcome to do so.

I really enjoyed GURPS with figs withHowl and his gaming crew. (Spotted his comment about it being best without them)

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd Pathfinder 2.0 - which they SWORE would never happen - hits next month.  It is different enough that the two full size bookshelves of Pathfinder I have are not compatible.

In thst case screw them.

I've never played Pathfinder, but I understand it to be rooted in D&D 3.5

What are the new bells & whistles in the new pathfinder? How does it compare to D&D 5?

It doesn't.  It's Pathfinder 1 with all the complexity stripped out to add new and different complexity.

So, I walked into Barnes & Nobel bookstore last weekend, and the gaming section contained a bunch of paperbacks for Pathfinder 1E, a single book for Pathfinder 2E, and NO D&D at all.  Not one book, in any edition. Prior to 5th, there was a metric shit ton of material, then 5th started out okay, but strangled themselves with gigantic hardcover adventures.

I am thinking the original franchise should be declared dead.  Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Descent into Avernus should have been released a month or two ago. But they are taking a very relaxed publishing schedule, yeah.

Dead? it's still doing better than it ever has.

Barnes and Nobel is hit or miss on carrying RPG stuff, it seems kinda regional I think.

Yes.  Your modern world is made of dildos and fail.

IT'S STILL 1979 HERE.

Its still 1979 everywhere, we just added a bunch of unnecessary garbage to it.

Proof: the first Alien movie is still the best one. 50s chic is still a fucking thing somehow. Despite having cellphones, you still cant get a hold of anyone unless theyre home. Russia is still our enemy and still causing trouble in the Middle East.

Really, the main difference is that everything is worse, faster and more idiotic.

I'm pretty surprised D&D books were gone. I can only assume tehy were sold out--the one by our place has a good balance of both. But, if sold out, it means they paid Barnes and Noble prices...which...sorry, fucker.

If I go into another comic book or gaming store and get greeted with a wall of funko pops I might start shitting right then and there, on the carpet
