Unleash your hero!
This comprehensive game system provides everything you need to set out into a world of limitless fantasy adventure! Choose from ancestries like elf, human, and goblin and classes like alchemist, fighter, and sorcerer to create a hero of your own design, destined to become a legend! The new Pathfinder rules are easier to learn and faster to play, and they offer deeper customization than ever before!

Supported by official partnership between Paizo Inc., Foundry Virtual Tabletop, and the PF2E Volunteer Development Team, the Pathfinder Second Edition game system has been specifically designed to provide seamless integration with game rules automation, to make one of the most intricate D20-based roleplaying games easy to GM and easier to play. The PF2e game system includes:

  • The complete SRD for Pathfinder Second Edition, including all creatures, NPCs, hazards, and rules from all current rule books.
  • Convenience features for players and GMs, including quick application of damage and healing, re-rolling using hero points, inventory management, spell scaling, and more
  • Automation for rules-based vision, conditions and effects, flanking, and rolls including calculation of criticals.
  • Support for all actions, bestiaries, equipment, feats, hazards, and spells through a convenient Compendium Browser
  • and much more!

Latest Release Features

  • healing/harming hands now automated
  • Hearing now works through walls that don't block sound
  • Undetected now on the HUD as a condition

  • Bugfixes: token mirroring works with locked scale, secret text in journals now stays secret, several data entry fixes 

How to Contribute

The ongoing development effort for this game system is volunteer-based, and we always welcome more help!

  • If you know how to code in JavaScript/TypeScript/HTML/CSS and have something specific you want to work on, check out the issue tracker on GitHub. You can set up a development environment following these directions.
  • If you find a data entry error, feel free to open a ticket in the GitHub issue tracker.

If you find what you think is a bug, do the following:

  1. Close the world and restart Foundry.
  2. Push F12 and make a note of any errors in the console log.
  3. Try to replicate it and figure out exactly what you did to cause it. Do you get the same error in the console log?
  4. If it is an actor, try replicating it on a brand new test actor.
  5. Disable all modules and try again. If it stops try figuring out which module - you can likely get help in #module-troubleshooting on the FVTT discord.
  6. If it still persists, create a new PF2e world with no modules enabled and try again. At this point you likely have enough information people in #pf2e on the discord channel might be able to help you.
    1. If it still persists and you feel confident in this, back up your world data, delete the PF2e system and reinstall it and see if that fixes the issue
  7. Open up a GitHub issue stating exactly what you did and exactly what error you are getting. Likely someone in #pf2e can help you phrase this.

Highly recommend the Pathfinder 2E system on FVTT. It is one of the best system that I’ve used. The system contains so many good features and so many more are being developed. The community on Discord is great too!

Does the PF2E implement every quirk of Pathfinder perfectly? Not yet, no. Is it better in Foundry than any other VTT? Easily. Is there a particular feature you want working? Ask for it and if somebody doesn’t have a quick fix, odds are pretty good one of the volunteer devs will have it implemented before you thought it was possible! The rate of improvements and increased automation feature additions is honestly impressive.

The automation out of the box in the Pathfinder 2E system is incredible. Since I’m playing with IRL friends that didn’t read the Core Rulebook I couldn’t play without this system.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
