I am not accustomed to Starfinder however I do assume that the Misplaced Omens sequence of books for PF2 are very a lot Splatbooks which have been particularly designed NOT to be restricted/particular with the intention to encourage buy by extra folks. For individuals who play or run PF2 repeatedly and wish to personal the books, most individuals’s buying habits will seemingly break down into just a few choices:
1. Purchase all the pieces
2. Purchase all “core” guidelines and the Misplaced Omens stuff that has content material that’s attention-grabbing to you (laborious to determine when the titles of the guide aren’t character class or ancestry particular)
3. Purchase all of the “Core Guidelines” solely
4. Purchase the Core Rulebook (and possibly the Bestiary)
I feel the newer tendency to keep away from isolating related “growth” content material by character class or ancestry is an try and push extra consumers into class 1. When there is a particular class or two launched in a Misplaced Omens splatbook that’s largely crammed with content material that’s irrelevant to your marketing campaign, will you skip it when you have all the opposite books. For somebody like me, having easy accessibility to 22 of 24 character choices (or no matter) is irritating. I absolutely notice that it causes irrational buying selections. That is, little question, a part of their plan.
