Like many others, at Gencon this year, we picked up the paperback copy of the Pathfinder 2.0 playtest. First of all, I like the idea of grabbing the playtest this way, because it covers the cost of the book, plus I get to hold a copy of it in my hands and pass it around the table. PDF's work, however, I still prefer the feel of the books in my hands. That was nice. However, I am not sure who did/would purchase the more expensive copies like the hardback, or the even higher priced special edition copy. That seems a little over kill for my tastes, but to each their own.
Digging into the book as we got home (ok why am I lying, as soon as I got into the hallway from purchasing it), I started to really look at some of the new items that made it into the playtest. Remember, this is just a playtest and can change when the actual edition comes out. This isn't an exhaustive list, as we are still pulling it apart and playing it to see where the bits and pieces fall. As we get moving along with the playtest and digging into the book more thoroughly, we will post further articles.
