Do not trust in hope- it will betray you! Only faith and hatred sustain.

Out of curiosity how appropriate is Pathfinder for running am Eberron game? It seems like an interesting system but idk how easy it'd be to reflavor to some of the specifics of the setting, especially Artificers

Inventors donít work quite like Artificers, but they capture a lot of the same flavor.

There's also the Automaton ancestry, which is at minimum close enough to work for Warforged. Other than that, dragonmarks would probably take a bit of homebrew but there's enough examples of feats that give limited access to spells to figure something out.

The new Deviant Feat chains from Dark Archive seems like a good answer here.

The explosive dogslicer is an advanced weapon, and Bullet Dancer Stance only works with simple firearms.

Is there a separate Pathfinder GM book or is it in the core rulebook?

There's the Gamemastery Guide. It technically isn't necessary, but it has a lot of useful stuff.

The core rulebook has all the rules necessary to run a game. The Game Mastery Guide has GM advice, optional rules, and guidance for turning a session into a campaign. Itís extremely helpful but not needed to get up and running.

Likely no. You can use the pdf to foundry module to import your official pdf.

Paizo is likely not going to be back porting stuff until much much later

If they hardback Strength of Thousands itíll likely get a Foundry release as a one volume job. Otherwise use the importer, youíll need to fix some character art and put in some stats for NPCs if the players ask them for help in fights. Otherwise it works fairly well.

It imports maps, journals and npcs. Some of the monsters don't have graphics so you'll need to import token pictures.

One of the snags with PF2e is that itís harder to adapt for changing player counts. XP is per player so you canít just do the ďsplit the XP among more people so the PCs are lower level later onĒ, and the action economy is really sensitive. Itís best to try to scale up encounters using the guidelines in the book, but scaling to 8 may need some fudging.

Scaling to 8 is really easy, just double the number of enemies. All BBEGs have a equally evil twin.

Which is more or less what the book tells you to do, but has the problem that if double the enemies end up attacking one tank PC, then they too easily get trashed. If you can somehow find a way to spread the party out then it can work, but tacticians tend to avoid that.

Yes. Thereís an XP budget based off of difficulty and number of PCs and you choose enemies and hazards to fit that budget. Both enemies and hazards follow mathematically solid design systems, so it hangs together very well.

I will say, Pathfinder 2e does feel like it's handles the stuff on that map in a much more fun way than 1e did. At the very least, it hits 'fun' more reliably. Take the Mwangi Expanse, the Africa joke on that map. In 1e, I hated it because it was just a random slice of colonial Africa they dropped into the setting because Paizo's executives like pulp stories set in that era. 2e feels like they're trying to be more respectful about integrating it into a fantasy setting, instead of just being A Historical Setting, But Fantasy.

The Mwangi Expanse setting book is excellent. One of the best setting books I've read for any system.

I mean I guess but there was also like nothing written about the mwangi expanse other than the 30 page sargava companion which kinda counts?

Canít say Iíve noticed any huge shifts in style personally
