Well met, Demiplanars!

Deck of player safety now available

We have partnered with Tom Nelson to present the freely-accessible digital Deck of Player Safety! The DOPS was created to provide a quick and anonymous method to signal hot-button topics to exclude from your gaming experience.

Try it now at Demiplane.

More information can be found here .

And you can grab a physical deck at https://www.deckofplayersafety.com/buyhere/p/deck-of-player-safety-1

Pathfinder 2e

Do you like arts and crafts? Like building things? Then this update is for you! We've recently introduced Alchemy and Crafting support for Pathfinder 2e.


Pathfinder 2e characters can now craft items in the Equipment tab of their character sheet. From the Crafting drawer you can start projects, make your Crafting checks, or save the projects for later if Adventure comes calling! Have all the time in Golarion? Take your time and spend a few more days on the project to reduce its cost.

Costs are automatically taken from your character’s currency upon completing (or failing!) the project. Once complete, your new creation will appear in your equipment!

Eager to build something? Start at the CRAFTING button in the Equipment tab.

Alchemy & Alchemists

The biggest beneficiary here is the Alchemist class, who now has a complete Formula Book to manage their alchemical creations like Acid Flacks or Elixirs of Life. From the new Alchemy tab Players can create alchemy items on the fly and quickly equip them for attacking.

...And More

These updates come with a plethora of bug fixes and full support for custom Lore skills in Pathfinder 2e. Players can now create their own Lore skills during character creation or while leveling up.

Until our paths cross again!

Pathfinder 2e

Character Builder Updates

  • Resolved an issue in which selecting the Hellknight Archetype was not bumping Intimidation training to Expert if the character was already trained in Intimidation. Go forth and be scary!

December 14, 2023


Hello everyone!

It has been an incredible year for Demiplane. Once the foundations of the character tools piece of our platform materialized in May, we have released character builders and digital character sheets for five games in as many months, with the addition of refactoring the game we’ll spotlight today, the one that started it all for NEXUS…

We are pleased to share that Pathfinder NEXUS has launched out of Beta. Thank you for being a part of the beta journey - your support and feedback have allowed us to make some important updates and changes that bring all of the greatness of Pathfinder directly into your hands. Along with this major update, Demiplane is also delivering full Pathfinder Second Edition Remaster support across our Game Compendium, Digital Reader, and Character tools.

Along with Remaster support and legacy options, the Demiplane team is delivering 30+ new features as part of our launch:

  • Significant updates to speed and performance (with more underway),
  • Refreshed Character Sheet layout
  • Expand and collapse the top section to allow for the bottom section to use more space
  • Equipment and spell selection integrated into the Character Builder
  • Primary and offhand blocks in the sheet top section for faster reference
  • Multiple attack numbers surfaced on the sheet instead of being in a dropdown
  • Live updating of Conditions across the Character Sheet
  • Traits and rarity added throughout the Builder
  • Notes & Journaling integrated directly into the Character Sheet
  • A redesigned equipment and spell management layout
  • Detailed breakdowns of damage mechanics
  • Dozens of bug fixes
  • …and much more!

As part of this launch, we’ve maintained all of your previously created Characters in our Beta system. We’re working on a plan to transition your beta characters into our newly launched system but do not have a timeline on that effort at this time. Beta characters will not benefit from the improvements above. If you are itching to take the new car out for a spin with one of your old characters, you’ll need to recreate that character in the meantime - but the good news is that process shouldn’t take you long at all!

Finally, following this launch (and our holiday break), the team is now hard at work with the next wave of requested Pathfinder 2e features: Familiars & Companions, Alchemy/Crafting, and PDF Exporting! Not only are those features core to some of the final class support (Alchemist, Witch, etc), but they open up all sort of fun, new character possibilities.

Once again, your feedback has been vital in bringing Pathfinder NEXUS to life! As always, please share and report any issues you encounter and our team will be on top of it.

I’ll end by reiterating that after a whirlwind year, the Demiplane team will be going quiet for a well-deserved holiday break starting Monday. All services will be monitored, all feedback tracked, and any bugs discovered and reported that block play will still be addressed as always. You just won’t see us as frequently in Discord, on social media, and lower-priority feedback will be addressed when we return from our break.

From our team at Demiplane, we wish you and yours the absolute best holiday season, and catch you on the flip side!

Plenty more to come!

  • Custom Notes in Drawers should now save again.

  • Mummy Dedication: Death is only the beginning… of you being able to benefit from the Mummy’s terrain choices! Choosing a terrain now adds notes to the appropriate places in the Pathfinder Character Sheet.

Background Updates

  • Clockfighter has been added to the list of available backgrounds.

Class Updates

  • We resolved an issue in which we incorrectly displayed the Focus Spell tradition for Witch hexes, which impacted spell save DCs and proficiency bonuses.

June 28, 2023

See below for the latest updates to the Pathfinder Character Tools Open Beta.

Character Builder Updates

  • Today, we are releasing a significant backend update to Skills and Skill Training. This update touches on many aspects of our Skills system and fixes several issues discovered early in the Beta. A few examples of issues that have been resolved with this fix are below:
  • Several Character Options grant skill- or skill proficiency-related benefits. Nearly all of these benefits are now supported. Some examples are below:
  • The Human’s “Skilled” Heritage now upgrades the chosen skill from “Trained” to “Expert” at Level 5.
  • Archetypes that boost a Character’s skill to a given proficiency now work as expected. The most shared example of this would be the “Medic” Archetype, which now correctly increases a Character’s Medicine Proficiency to Expert.
  • Previously, changing a Character’s Class could cause inconsistencies in the number of skills that could be trained. This has been resolved.
  • Previously, users could increase or decrease any skill’s proficiency at any level where a Skill Increase benefit existed. Now, the Builder tracks which skill proficiencies were increased at each character option for easier tracking and tracing.
  • We resolved an issue where removing a feat that has been selected multiple times removed the wrong instance of the feat. This was reported most frequently when the “Assurance” feat was selected multiple times.
  • We have restructured how character options available to users are displayed across Pathfinder and all other games supported by Demiplane’s Character Builder. Specifically for Pathfinder, this means Ancestries, Backgrounds, and Class options are now sorted first by all user-accessible content and then alpha-numerically.
  • The Green Watch Initiate feat now correctly increases the Survival skill to Expert.
  • Work continues on multi-game support of both the Character Builder and Sheet.

Character Sheet Updates

  • The “Add Item” drawer should now stay open when adding items. Previously, this drawer would close after each item was selected.
  • We resolved an issue where level changes made in the Character Sheet’s “Manage XP” Drawer did not save across the character.
  • We have added a Bulk calculation in the Equipment section of your Character Sheet.
  • The Bulk calculation sits underneath the search bar. Clicking on the bulk calculation grants access to the Bulk drawer, which provides details on the mechanic.
  • As a result of this update, we have also been able to unblock several Feats that impact a character’s Bulk value or calculation.
  • An “Other Items” section has been added to the Equipment tab with free text for you to be able to list other possessions.

Ancestry Updates

  • The Ancient Ash Ghoran heritage now only offers a single skill selection and boosts the selected skill to “Expert” at 5th level.

Class Updates


  • Resolved an issue where the Cleric Doctrine could not be changed once it was initially selected.


  • Ashes Mystery for Oracle from “Blood Lords: A Taste of Ashes” is now available.


  • Resolved an issue where a Wizard’s School selection could not be changed after initial selection.

June 13, 2023

  • Signature Spells no longer allow players to select a higher-level spell than they should have access to for that signature spell slot.

  • The Spellmaster’s Resilience feat now prompts players to choose a Magical Tradition.

Performance Updates

  • Load times for higher level characters should be between 40-60% faster.

Builder Updates

  • We’ve replaced the “1 Selection” labels in the builder with your selection. That should reduce the guesswork of trying to recall what it was that 1 Selection represented.

  • Each Class now has an “Initial Proficiencies” section that displays a Character’s proficiency ranks granted by the class at Level 1.
  • Updated the Deity text to include sub-bullet points about Deific Weapons and continued work on spells.

Sheet Updates

  • You can now track Currency on our Pathfinder 2e Character sheet.
  • To edit your currency pouch, select the currency component in the “Equipment” tab (or the “Add Item” drawer).
  • Ranged weapons now correctly use your Dexterity modifier to calculate attack roll (sorry about that).

  • Bards now correctly gain three Level 8 Spell Rows at Level 16+.
  • Level 19 Bards now receive two spell rows to add their two Level 10 spells to their repertoire.


  • We separated the Champion’s “Deity and Cause” class feature into two character choices: Deity and - wait for it! - Cause.

  • We have resolved an issue where choosing a Druid Order crashed the builder.

  • Players can now track shield Hit Points in the shield drawer.
  • Resolved an issue where unarmored proficiency rank was not displayed correctly.
  • Continued visual styling polish updates throughout the digital character sheet (more incoming).

Class / Class Feature Updates

  • We updated several Alchemist class features, including breaking out the benefits granted by the level 1 “Alchemy” feature and adding “Quick Alchemy” to the list of actions available on the character sheet.

While we can’t ever tell the future, we are starting to get into that “we feel within a couple of months” feel for the Open Beta, so that’s pretty much a home stretch in software development.

Thanks once again for all your help in the Closed Alpha…we wouldn’t be where we are without you!

MARCH 21, 2023

As we continue to work on mobile / tablet responsive layouts and additional styling polish, a new build went out earlier today with some minor updates, plus a couple of character data-related but not necessarily builder or sheet-related updates with two new listing types for the Game Compendium.


  • Weapon Traits for Agile, Finesse, and Propulsive now apply bonuses for attacks and damages based on traits and some fixes to items not calculating correctly.
  • Notes added for Outwit Ranger class feature to the appropriate drawers

Bug Fixes:

  • Class Features or Feats that grant selection of a feat got an overhaul to provide correct refined options to select.
  • Shield Icon on sheet opens your shield, was opening minimal information before but is now a fully fledged drawer.

Game Compendium:

  • The Conditions Listing and the “Rules Index” Listing are now live.
  • These have not been added to the Game Rules menu yet, but they can be accessed at /conditions and /rules. The Rules Index is not comprehensive yet, but more rules / mechanics will be added throughout Early Access.

MARCH 16, 2023

A new build was released earlier today with a couple minor updates that you all will be able to notice, and much more that is classified as “under the hood” for now:

  • Resolved an issue where attack bonuses were double counted for weapon attack rolls utilizing the finesse trait.
  • The Agile Weapon Trait appropriately reduces the second and third item attack.

Work continues on responsive mobile and tablet layout for both the Character Sheet and Character Builder. This has been our primary effort this week, and we expect the first stages of that to go live next week.

MARCH 7, 2023

A new build went out just now with several updates to class features for the Fighter, Rogue, and Wizard, plus the all-important tracking of the alpha modal confirmation where you won’t have to see my smiling face every time you go to the builder.

  • The Builder’s Alpha Modal that prompts acceptance remains closed once you’ve accepted it.
  • Notes have been reactivated for use. You are now able to type notes in drawers and hit ‘enter’ to save. We still need to reinsert the secondary menu (which allows for editing and removing the comment), but wanted to get this first pass out today.
  • Spell slots of a given level can now be filled with any spell that level or lower. We continue working on the damage calculation logic that ensures a spell selected utilizes the highest allowed heightened effect.
  • Weapon Attacks calculations are now broken out for display.
Fighter Class Support
  • Combat Flexibility now allows selection of feats in the Builder. If you’re on the character sheet, you can navigate to the Builder by selecting your portrait on the Sheet.

We’ll be back with more later this week. Thanks for your help and participation in the Closed Alpha!

  • Extended the “Current Hit Points” tracker to support 3 values in the Hit Points Drawer
  • Added support for all classes’ Weapon Specialization and Greater Weapon Specialization feature

We’ve leveled up our widescreen drawer support (and more) in today’s Pathfinder 2e Character Tools update! Here’s what’s new:

  • No more bouncing back and forth - drawers will now stay in view as you scroll through a character’s details on widescreen monitors.
  • Each spell’s Spell Attack modifier and Saves are built up in their drawer, displaying each bonus (or penalty).
  • All Character Sheet Drawers and the Equipment Section now have empty states while loading content.
  • Characters are now limited to 3 Hero Points
  • Max Hit Points are no longer being overridden by hit points tied to the Character’s Class.
  • Finally - for all of our sword-and-board enthusiasts - we have released our first wave of Shield Mechanics support. Add and equip a shield in the Equipment section to toggle the new shield component.
  • Work continues on the Shield Mechanic drawer, which displays information about the specific shield equipped, as well as allows users to edit Shield HP.

The team is now working on Spell Heightening. While that work is taking place, we are also beginning to tackle Builder layout updates for smaller screens, tablets, and mobile devices.

Hello everyone!

We have another batch of updates and fixes for the Pathfinder 2e Character Tools on Demiplane that just went live. This includes a set of touch-ups for the recently-released Spells functionality, and another round of performance enhancements aimed at improving builder response times. We have also made several updates to class-related features.

General Updates
  • In response to popular demand, clicking on a character’s card in the “My Characters” section of Demiplane now directs you to the Character Sheet instead of the Character Builder.
  • You can still access the Character Builder through the kebob menu or by clicking on the Character Sheet portrait.
  • Further platform performance enhancements have been made to improve builder response times.
  • Fixed the Action symbol filters in the Character Sheet’s Action & Activities list.
  • Increased the number of results available in the Add Spells drawer, so all spells available for a given level and feature should now be displayed.
  • Updated Spell Display drawers to include Spell Attacks and Spell Saves.
  • Updated Innate Spellcasting attack and save calculations, with work continuing on innate spell-granting features and feats.
  • Resolved an issue where Armor Class was calculating correctly in the Armor Class drawers but not in the AC display on the sheet.
  • Updated the styling of the Hit Points drawer to match other drawers.
  • Resolved an issue where damage was reducing the character’s Hit Point pool despite having Temporary Hit Points.
  • Resolved an issue where page numbers were not appearing when selecting Backgrounds.
Class Updates
  • Alchemist
  • Chirurgeon is now available as an Alchemist class option.
  • Cleric
  • The Harm & Heal Divine Font class features can now be expanded without crashing the Builder.
  • Investigator
  • Resolved issues where Skill Increases were not appropriately increasing skill proficiencies
  • Sorcerer
  • Resolved issues with the Elemental, Genie, and Wyrmblessed Bloodlines crashing the Character Builder when selected.
  • Swashbuckler
  • Resolved issue with Stylish Tricks not being able to be unlocked.
  • Resolved issue with the Eternal Confidence class feature not displaying information.
  • Wizard
  • Arcane Schools are now available to be selected.
  • Selecting an Arcane School grants extra slots that are able to be filled with known spells of the selected school.

Moving forward, we are continuing our efforts by expanding into two new categories: implementing shield mechanics and mobile/tablet/responsive layouts for the Character Builder and Sheet, in addition to implementing various class feature mechanics.

Thanks for your help!

Hello everyone!

We have just released a few updates and enhancements to our Pathfinder 2e Spellcasting feature we released on Tuesday:

  • All focus spells granted by classes or class features should now be added directly onto a Character’s sheet.
  • We have identified an issue with Wizards and Clerics where this is not happening. We are working towards the solution!
  • There was an issue where spellbook users were not able to move prepared spells onto their sheet.

We’ll be back Tuesday with more, and as always, thanks for your help testing!

February 14, 2023

With a few extra days of development under our belt, we’re thrilled to announce that our Alpha Spellcasting Features are now available for you and your groupmates to explore!

Unlock the worlds of arcane, divine, occult, and primal possibilities with the new Spells section, accessible from the “Spells” tab on your Character Sheet. For characters with Spellcasting capabilities, you’ll find several rows where spells can be selected, grouped by the level of spells available to be cast. Plus, characters with prepopulated spells granted by features like the Sorcerer’s Bloodline or the Bard’s Muse will have them ready and available the moment they’re created.

Selecting an available row will open up your Add Spell drawer or Spellbook, where you’ll find a list of spells available to your character. We are working to ensure that these spells are immediately available on your sheet after creation - we’ll be updating class by class now that this foundational capability is out.

Finally, everyone knows the best part about rules involves breaking them! The Settings button at the top of the spells section assists you in bending the reality of your spellcasting situation further than Pathfinder’s system typically allows. Select the Settings button to override the number of spell slots you have for a given spellcasting feature. Or, throw all rules out the window and add spell slots entirely ungoverned by the rules – what good is a level 4 monk if they don’t have several fireball spells at their disposal, after all?

Thanks to everyone for being patient with us as we spent the past 5-6 days preparing this release. We’re looking forward to your feedback!

And here are some specifics, although this is a big update and there could be several minor things that aren’t included in the list below.

  • Added Spellcasting support for broad spellcasting features, including focus and ritual spells.
  • Began adding Spellcasting support for magic items.
  • Please note: support for items that add innate spells are following a basic ruleset of determining innate spellcasting attack rolls and save DCs (trained proficiency for both attacks and saves, plus CHA modifiers where applicable)
  • Added Spellbook Management for classes leveraging spellbook and spellbook-like features.
  • Heightened Spells are available for selection in higher-level spell slots. We are working on scaling damage accordingly.
  • The Cast button has been added to govern spell resources (primarily, spell slots) as they are consumed.
  • Preferences & Rules section should no longer result in an endless portal spinner in the center column.
  • Skill Feats granted by selecting a Background now displays the Feat’s information in the Character Builder.
  • Speed Penalties from having Armor and Shields are now applied and removed when the armor and/or shields are removed.
  • We’ve added a new capability that allows us to add text above certain character choices to help provide important context.
Areas of Future Focus
  • There are still Spellcasting feats and features (including Archetypes) that need additional work to bring across the finish line. This work will continue.
  • An example of this type of work include things like “Signature Spells” which delivers a special experience for a selected spell.
  • We’ve identified an issue with the “My Library” drawer delivering a poor experience. We’re exploring how best to improve this.
  • Some spells may be displaying damage as “NaN” - we’re actively hunting these spells down. If you see them, please let us know.

Hello everyone!

Seeing the increased amount of feedback has been exciting - we appreciate your participation in the alpha. Today’s release includes many updates and enhancements regarding the application of bonuses and penalties to characters across the Character Sheet. We’ve been working on our “bonus infrastructure” and are glad to see things shaping up so well.

  • Added over 500 different bonuses and penalties into the Character Sheet. For example, wearing the Hat of the Magi - which grants +1 to Arcana checks - now delivers that bonus onto the sheet.
  • Known Bugs: Two bugs are impacting equipping and unequipping armor. Equipping armor displays an inflated AC on the sheet (the correct AC displays in the drawer) and does not display a speed penalty until refreshed. Additionally, unequipping armor with a speed penalty does not remove the speed penalty until you refresh the character sheet.
  • Added 120+ notes to various items, feats, features, and spells (coming soon!). These notes are added to your character’s sheet as the character progresses or equips items.
  • Damage types now contain fancy little icons. Bonus internet points to the character who collects them all!
  • As characters advance, Pathfinder 2e becomes a game of big bonuses. To understand what character choices are influencing your bonuses, we have incorporated a bonus build-up list in popular areas of the character sheet. Below are the areas you can find the new bonus build-up lists:
  • Armor Class drawer
  • Saving Throws drawer
  • Perception drawer
  • Hit Points Drawer
  • Skill & Skill Action drawers
  • We were overzealous in applying a three boost / one flaw Ancestry Ability Boost option. We have removed this Ancestry Ability Boost option.
  • Note: If you have a character with the no-longer-present three boost / one flaw option selected, your character will break if you choose one of the remaining Ancestry Ability Boost options.
  • Another Note: We are receiving reports of Characters receiving +6 to ability scores when selecting an Ancestry Ability Boost option. We are having a difficult time replicating this issue - any outside assistance in reproducing this will be of great help!
  • Certain Actions, Feats, and Character Options were duplicated in the Character Builder and Sheet. We have resolved many of these issues. If you run into any others, please let us know!

January 19, 2023

Hello everyone! We’ve pushed several updates today that are detailed below.

Before we get into today’s release, behind the scenes, we have been hard at work on two major updates that you’ll see soon.

The two major ‘in-flight’ updates include…

  • Updates of 750+ Pathfinder 2e game elements. These updates include everything from granting bonuses in the right areas to our system providing notes to various areas of your character sheet so you remember that you have a bonus to saving throws against death effects. Many of these updates have been highlighted by the community - thank you!
  • Spellcasting, Spell Preparation, & Spell Resource Management. We’ve been working hard on spellcasting since returning from our holiday break and we’re pleased to say things are progressing well. An early view of the initial Spellcasting layout is below and progress is being made on a daily basis. We can’t wait for you to have it in your hands!

*Note: This update contains a major system change that may influence older characters (see "Errata Update: Ancestry Ability Boost Options below).

  • Archetype Feats are now available in the Character Builder. We have added archetype feats to the Character Builder as a first step deeper into Pathfinder 2e’s Archetype system. There is a longer road ahead with Archetypes and this is the next step!
  • Errata Update: Ancestry Ability Boost Options. We have implemented the new Ancestry Ability Boost process as defined by Paizo’s latest Errata. We are eager to collect your feedback on this update, which the Paizo team defines as an “optional - not variant” rule. Two important callouts on this update:
  • First, selecting a boost option on top of a previously built character will artificially increase the number of ability boosts available to pre-errata characters. To avoid the ire of your Game Master, we are happy to share with you that you can avoid falling into this trap by ignoring the additional choice needed to be made in the Ancestry section of the builder.
  • Second, we are aware of a bug associated with sibling choices not being removed when one of the siblings is changed. In this case, we are aware that changing your Ancestry Boost Option does not remove the boosts you may have selected using your past option. This is not intended and will be resolved in a later fix.
  • Resolved issues impacting the selection of a Barbarian’s Instinct. Previously, some instincts were crashing the builder based on prior Character choices.
  • Added Range to Ranged Weapon drawer information. Viewing a ranged weapon’s details in the Character Sheet will now accurately display that item’s range increment.
  • Updated feat sorting order. We’ve updated our feat sorting order and are interested in your thoughts. There are many, many feats in the game and we want to ensure we are balancing the desire to explore character options with speed to selection.

January 12, 2023

Hello everyone!

Another build for the Closed Alpha was released earlier today. Here are the update notes:

  • Resolved an issue where the number of open choices in the class section momentarily displayed the maximum number of potential choices for that class.
  • Resolved an issue regarding drawer navigation. Previously, navigating “back” in a drawer could break the drawer for future uses. This should no longer be the case.
  • Resolved an issue where characters that user’s marked as inactive would not stay inactive - just like that one NPC your Game Master keeps bringing back.
  • All actions now appear when a feat grants multiple actions.

We’ll keep chugging along. As always, thanks for the help kicking the tires!

January 10, 2023

Prior to our holiday break, we released a wave of Performance Enhancements implemented into our Pathfinder 2e Character Builder and Sheet. Now that we’re back in the office, we are release another wave of features and enhancements that we worked on throughout the break!

Major Updates
  • Our major update for this week involves bringing additional information closer to the player through our use of drawers across the Character Sheet. Users should now be able to click on nearly any available Game Element and see a wide variety of information - ranging from specific information detailing the specifics of an item, class feature, or ability score to more broadly applicable rules that articulate how different forms of light impact Perception.
  • This update involved work in nearly every aspect of the Character Sheet, so please let us know if things don’t look quite right now that it is live.
Additional Enhancements & Updates
  • You can search for both Skills and Skill Actions while in the Skill Panels.
  • Toggling the Action & Activity display settings to “Off” now turns off the respective Action or Activity.
  • Due to popular demand: updated click areas for Skills and the Action & Activities rows – clicking on the row now expands and collapses a row.
  • Clicking the name of the button will open the drawer.
  • Introduced the second wave of our Experience Point tracker. Select “Manage XP” to display how far your character is to global domination (or level 2, whichever comes first).
  • Introduced the first version of the “Armor Class” drawer.
  • We are aware of a display-related bug that is impacting AC calculation and are working on a resolution.
  • Updated Rules & Compendium information in the Perception drawer.
  • Updated Rules & Compendium information in the Ability Score drawers.

December 22, 2022

Happy Holidays, everyone! Your participation and feedback in the Closed Alpha so far has been energizing to our team, so it is with this energy that we are pleased to share our last update of 2022. Don’t worry, we’ll be back in full force with much more to come in the new year!

Prior to diving into the specific updates and enhancements of this release, we should highlight it includes the first round of major performance enhancements. These performance improvements specifically revolve around response to selections throughout the builder and sheet. Examples of areas where you should see noticeable improvement includes things like choosing which abilities to boost or adding items to your character sheet. There are a few known issues that are a result of this update, and we’ve called those out below. Areas of specific feedback we are looking for with this first pass of performance enhancement include feats, features, skills, etc. that drive additional choices and are not being displayed in the builder. Examples of this include the Assurance feat, the Multilingual feat, and things like selecting customer lore skills.

And with that, you can find the update notes below. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and see you on the flip side!

Major Updates
  • App Performance: Wave One - Response to Selection – This first wave of performance enhancements specifically revolves around response to selections throughout the builder and sheet. This first wave touched many portions of the builder and sheet.
  • Character Sheet Drawers: Contextual Information – Users should now see information about every skill, skill action, feat, feature, item, and action when they open a drawer. This information includes details on the specific game element itself, as well as contextual Pathfinder 2e rules that help players and game masters make decisions about how to best use that game element. We believe having the right information in the right place helps learn new games (or remember forgotten tricks!). We’re interested in your feedback here.
Additional Fixes and Enhancements
  • Issues with Skill Training & Skill Proficiency labels were resolved. There are a few issues still needing to be ironed out, but please continue to highlight anything you may run into.
  • Identified and began resolving issues tied to class feature choices that lead to additional choices, like the Animal Instinct Barbarian and Draconic Sorcerer. We will continue to update these as they come in.
  • Resolved user reported issues with Hunter’s Edge and Wild Druid Order causing app crashes. Rangers and Druids get along much better now.
  • Barbarian Class has received an overhaul. You should now see feats, class options, skill training options, etc. appearing throughout the class.
  • Natural Ambition should now provide guidance on selecting a class feat when a class isn’t selected.
  • Resolved an issue where Dice Rolls from your other characters were appearing in your current character’s dice roll backlog.
  • Added a note that indicates what type of dice roll was made - skill roll, attack roll, damage roll, ability check, etc. - in the roller window.

It’s hard to believe we’re only two weeks in on the Closed Alpha. Thanks so much for the help - Pathfinder fans are the reason we do all of this and you are greatly appreciated. Please accept our entire team’s warmest holiday wishes heading into the new year!

December 20, 2022

Thanks once again to everyone for the great early feedback. Today’s release continues our efforts of getting the right information to users when they need it and where they need it! Additionally, we’ve been able to jump on several fixes originally identified by our alpha testers.

We will have one more release this week before taking a two week break. Notes on what has been included in this release below:

Major Updates
  • Added full compendium support for Skill, Skill Actions, and Item Drawers. Our intent with this support is to deliver relevant rules and game mechanics that help plan your next attack or determine how best to spend your next down time.
  • More compendium and rules support will follow as we progress through the alpha. Additional areas of focus include ability scores, armor class, actions (beyond skill actions), spells, feats, and class features.
  • We made the decision to push the compendium support today in a somewhat unpolished state, so the look and feel you’re seeing the drawer is close but not exactly what you’ll be seeing once things are styled in a later pass.
  • All items from enabled content are now available to be added to your Character Sheet. Previously, we limited item additions to only include items that leaned on features we wanted to stress test in alpha. Three cheers for bedrolls, chalk, and pocket stages! They’re back on the menu!
  • We are releasing the first pass of our Conditions drawer onto the Character Sheet. This drawer is intended to act as both a reference and tracker for Conditions impacting your character. We are eager for your feedback!
  • We are working through some display issues with the Persistent Damage condition and will get it updated by Thursday’s release.
  • Resolved an issue that was keeping Feats from appearing in the builder when users would navigate away and return. This also resolved a similar issue where feats were not loading past the first page of available feats.
  • We are continuing to hunt down an issue where some feats repeat on the last page.
  • Floating drawers that appear for widescreen support (1600px + resolution) will now scroll along with the rest of the character sheet.
Additional Enhancements
  • The dropdown menu that appears in each equipment row now allows users to both view items in their character’s inventory and remove them.
  • Resolved an issue with the Human Ancestry’s “Natural Ambition” feat not displaying feat options after a class had been selected.
  • Similarly, fixed a crash that occurred when selecting a feat leveraging the Human Ancestry’s Versatile Heritage.
  • Character Hit Points no longer reset to max each time the character sheet is opened.
  • Fixed an issue impacting Hold-Scarred Orcs from earning their hard-fought 12 hit points. You didn’t get all those tattoos for nothing!
  • Resolved an issue causing the Champion’s Level 3 Divine Allies selection to crash the character builder.
  • Resolved an issue where an empty search result caused continued issues after clearing the search.
  • Resolved an issue where a user was able to choose a record-setting seven ancestry feats (!!) in a single level.
  • The “Shield Block” action was not flowing through to the Actions & Activities panel. This has been resolved.
  • Magic Item Details now appear in their respective item drawers (last week’s release supported non-magical items).

December 15, 2022

Hello everyone!

Another build was released today for the character tools Close Alpha. Here are the update notes:

Major Updates
  • We have resolved the issues keeping users from changing their Ancestry, Background, or Class
  • We have resolved issues with Character Progression:
  • Gaining a level from XP no longer grants 2 levels
  • Users can add/remove character levels on the sheet and make updates in the builder.
  • We have started to populate item drawers with relevant information. You should see key information for basic weapons, armor, and shields populating when the items are in your character’s inventory.
  • We will be following up with Magic and more advanced items, as well as adding compendium information for all items
  • The Damage Drop-down menu is now fully interactable, which means characters now roll the correct alternative and critical damage
Additional Enhancements & Fixes
  • Updated Character Sheet drawer styling
  • Activated bottom buttons in Equipment section - the Add Container drawer will be activated at a later date.
  • Attempting to remove a level from your character now summons a modal making sure you really, really want that to happen
  • Second & Third attacks are now correctly rolling, including benefits from Agile weapons.
  • Only one armor can now be equipped at a time (Additional Armor updates coming)
  • A Character’s CURRENT HP field should now match Max HP at Character Creation. Previously, it would default to 0.
  • Removed many, many instances where [1] and undefined damage types appeared in the Actions & Activities drawer.

We expect at least one more build next week before we head into our team’s holiday break. Again, we encourage continued feedback throughout the end of the year as we’ll be tracking and parsing it all.


December 13, 2022

Hello everyone!

We had a new build go out earlier today. Here are the notes:

  • Added very basic Character Details drawer, allowing users to navigate back to the builder from a character sheet. Accessible by clicking on your Character’s portrait in the Character sheet.
  • Tooltips within drawers are now working
  • All Actions should now extend the full width of the drawer
  • Pressing BEGIN only requires one click to advance to the Ancestry screen
  • Performed a styling and readability pass on compendium and rule information in character sheet drawers.
  • Minor updates to the Armor Class drawer. Work continues.
  • Character choices in the Builder now display tooltips
  • Update to the Add Item drawer focused on ensuring items were are added consistently to the character sheet. More to come with Equipment.
  • Base Item information is now flowing into item details drawers. Work continues on Magic Items.

We expect another release Thursday, which will include a couple of the more crucial break fixes that will give the builder more stability to complete the creation process. Our goal is to get as much stability in place ahead of our holiday break as we can to allow tire-kicking over those couple of weeks to be as unimpeded as possible.

More Thursday, thanks again for participating in the Closed Alpha!

December 9, 2022

Hello everyone!

We really appreciate everyone that has jumped into the choppy waters of the alpha so far. I’ll keep saying it - we can’t make these tools all we want them to be without your feedback and support.

We have a new release that just went live. We will have many of these in the next several weeks. The patch notes for today are:

Update Notes 12/9/2022

  • Resolved an issue where Heritages were not displaying for selection in the Character Builder.
  • Heritages now sort based on the specific ancestry first, followed by Versatile Heritages. We will likely make this distinction clearer in a future update as well.
  • Resolved issue where certain Heritages’ resistances were not carried through to the Character Sheet correctly.
  • Clicking on options in the center column will no longer duplicate choices in the right column display.
  • Demiplane Members should not be prompted to delete characters after they have 7 or more.
  • Forwarded demiplane.com/characters to the My Characters page
  • Character Delete Confirmation correctly checks against character name
  • Added Class to container in Element Display section

I’ll share a few more reflections from our first day of the alpha:

Wait, I Thought That Was Working…

After we got all the code deployed into our production environment where all our alpha testers could access it for the first time (a massive effort that took a few days), there were some circumstances where things that were working in our development environments were not working properly in the Closed Alpha.

This would include things like:

  • Center Row selections are duplicating right display
  • Cannot Reverse Class Feature selections after they are made
  • ‘Change Background’ missing from Background Options section
  • Cannot Change Ancestry/Background/Classes
  • Changing A/B/C while selections were previously made in A/B/C is causing major issues
  • No Details for Game Elements available on Sheet
  • Leveling Up grants two levels instead of one
  • Leveling Up on Sheet does not pass benefits of new level to Builder
  • No way to return to builder from Sheet

We’ll be focused on fixes for the list above in the next few days, as for the most part, those are things that already work in one of our environments but we need to get them properly set up and configured in the live environment. We’ll share updates as we have them on this list.

Yeah, We Know That’s Not Ready Yet…But We’re on It

We are (very) aware that the tools are not performant enough right now. Part of most development is “get it working, and then get it working right.” We’re still in the get it working part, so the getting it to work right will come in the near future. You’ll magically start to see those load times melt away until things are right where we need them to be. Feel free to save yourself the time to post if it involves things being slow right now. Once we are at a place where we feel like performance is in the right place, we’ll put out a call for feedback to confirm it is indeed there.

Additionally, we’re seeing posts along the lines of “I can’t select a deity for my cleric or champion” or “I can’t select a familiar or companion,” or “Option [X] is not available for me to select.”

Feel free to share those posts, but I will say again here that we both 1) are fully aware that options are missing throughout and 2) have adding all those options on our list. So, if you want to hold off on sharing any feedback along those lines for now, you can rest assured that we’re tracking it already. We will reach a point in the alpha phase where we will explicitly share “We believe we have all the options in there - let us know if we’re missing anything,” but we’re not there yet.

Noted - We’ll Review Alongside All the Feedback

We’re seeing feedback along the lines of “Button [X] should be centered instead of left-aligned” or “the spacing in this area and font sizes should be larger.” While I’ll reiterate that we have not done a styling polish pass as of yet (and much will tighten up in the next few weeks), I will confirm this type of feedback is still useful at this phase - so keep it coming.

I’ll also share that this kind of feedback is naturally subjective and often based on preferences. That doesn’t make it any less important to us, but I want to emphasize that we will be reviewing all of this feedback comprehensively across all our feedback inputs to make sure if and when we make changes that the outcome is the best for as many fans as possible. So don’t get too mad at us if we don’t change “the thing” you posted about that we should change.

Know that we are taking it all into consideration and are committed to making the moves that make the tools the best they can be!

Smells Like Potential

Lastly for today, I mention in our “welcome screen” that the type of feedback we care about most here in the first couple of weeks is related to overall impressions and general direction.

We are really pleased to see the initial response with impressions and overall “feel” feedback. It’s energizing for our team to hear the feedback that even though this is super-early and definitely not polished or finished yet, there is excitement over the potential for how it can end up once it is finished.

Getting this early impression feedback allows us to validate our approach in order to crank things into high gear to complete development on the character tools in the coming weeks. It’s tough to do that before when we’re wondering “Is anyone going to actually like using this?” We’ve got what we need now to forge ahead.

Thanks again for all the engagement and participation. Keep the feedback coming. Even if we don’t reply individually to everything you post, please know that we are tracking, reviewing, and considering it all as we move forward to get ready for the Open Beta.

Have a good weekend!

December 8, 2022

The Pathfinder NEXUS Character Tools Closed Alpha is Live. Read more in our Forums.

Game Content Available in Character Toolset

We intend to convert rulebooks first, followed by the Lost Omens line, and then move into Adventures (Standalone, Paths, and Organized Play Scenarios).

Currently Available

  • Pathfinder 2E Primer (No Cost)
  • Pathfinder 2E Core Rulebook
  • Pathfinder 2E Advanced Player’s Guide
  • Pathfinder 2E Gamemastery Guide
Game Mechanics: State & Status

Our focus for Alpha is to ensure we have enough Game Content and Mechanics available for users to have fun in building and playing their characters, while also being able to provide feedback early about character creation and gameplay. Below is a broad snapshot of where we are regarding the many exciting Pathfinder 2e Game Mechanics!

  • Ancestries & Backgrounds: Ancestry and Background fundamentals are near complete. Support for particular unique or special Ancestry or Background abilities are not yet implemented. Examples include the Kobold’s “Draconic Exemplar” and the Scholar’s option of skills which then grant Assurance in that skill.
  • Classes: Classes from active sources are all available for selection. Several classes will have limited engagement due to core capabilities not yet being implemented. Examples include spellcasters (we’ll be adding alpha spellcasting capabilities next week) and classes with a heavy companion or familiar involvement (such as the Witch or Summoner).
  • Skills: All but one set of Skills and Skill Actions are in and available for training and gameplay. The Lore skill is the most dynamic skill when it comes to Character Management - we are spending more time on that skill specifically to ensure we get it right.
  • Feats: Feats from the above sources are available for selection. We will be spending time and attention on ensuring feats that grant additional Character choices (“Adopted Ancestry”, for example) are up to snuff over the next few weeks. Currently, those feats are selectable but do not necessarily grant their benefits as written.
  • Saving Throws, Hit Points, Resistances, and More: Saving Throws are in and ready to roll. The alpha version of our Hit Point tracking is ready to use with a few quality-of-life updates still needing to be made. The fundamentals are Resistances, Immunities, and Weaknesses are in.
  • Conditions: We have more work to do for Conditions, which should currently be considered a placeholder.
  • Equipment: Rudimentary Equipment Management is active and in. Players can equip weapons, armor, and items from throughout Golarion! We have many plans to build upon the equipment experience following collecting alpha feedback. Tell us what you think!
  • Note - there is a known issue where freshly equipped armor is not taking effect unless the sheet is refreshed.
  • Spells: Spells are not in today, but will be coming in a rudimentary way next week. Similar to equipment, we have many plans to build upon for Spells and are eager to collect feedback on the core structure and flow.
  • Formulas: Support for Formulas is not currently supported as of today’s launch, but will prior to Open Beta.
  • Crafting & Treasure: We have taken many passes to ensure that magic items are working. We are certain there are some that are not working as planned and will be actively working through the many magical items that make your character unique! Investing is not yet wired up, but support is en route.
  • Variant Rule Support: Variant Rule Support will absolutely be supported following the the collection of valuable pre-launch feedback.
  • Pathfinder Society Support: We are eager to support the many adventures of Pathfinder Society members. If you foresee pain points based on your initial passthrough of the alpha, please let us know. PFS support will be built upon the foundation of the Character Sheet and Builder.
  • Rarities & Traits: We are working to surface rarities and traits better.
  • Companions & Familiars: Companion and familiar support is planned prior to our Open Beta, so keep an eye out for updates.
Platform Capabilities

There is already so much to absorb, so we’ll come back and highlight some of the up-and-coming platform capabilities next week and beyond. Until then, here are a few of the team’s favorite things Demiplane is bringing to the table:

  • Flexible Builder Flow: Whether you pick your Ancestry first or last, Demiplane’s character builder highlights where your next choice awaits.
  • Contextual Insights: Can’t remember how Darkvision works? What does it mean to have a climb speed? We have already started building contextual information about Pathfinder throughout the Demiplane character sheet.
  • We will be regularly passing descriptions for items, feats, class features, spells, and more into drawers as the week continues.
  • Multiple Damage & Attack Options: While still in its early stages, we’re starting with support of multiple attacks and damage types for weapons at the start.
  • User and System Notes: Does your feat grant you a +2 circumstance bonus to having a great day, but only on Wednesday morning? We’ve got you covered. Demiplane leaves helpful notes in key areas based on the choices your character makes. Have something special that you want to remember for next time? Users can leave their own notes so they never forget their high-fantasy garage door code.
  • Homebrew: We would be amiss to not mention our Homebrew plans, which will be implemented following this initial pass of feedback gathering. Users will be able to modify their characters, items, spells, and more within the Demiplane sheet, as well as create entirely new game elements through our upcoming Homebrew system.
All the Gratitude

Congratulations if you read all the way to the end here! We are truly excited to get things started with NEXUS Character Tools, and we could not get where we need to be without all the Pathfinder fans out there providing your feedback and support.

Thanks so much for your participation in the Closed Alpha - upward and onward!
