Converting Magical Items from Pathfinder 1 to 2
Here I am showcasing items I have updated or changed for 2nd edition.
When looking at converting items across I have created a page called Item Creation (2020-01-01) which you can see under the list of items converted. This goes into detail about all the different rules in the Core Rules as well as the Gamesmastery Guide on how to create items in the new game.
The source of the first lot of items I am creating is the Jade Regent Adventure Path which I am running on Tuesday fortnightly. I want to make sure I can convert over the items that they have found and can potentially find.
Next I have rebuilt those items in such a way that I can have lesser and greater versions of some of those items to make them more useful at different power levels without destabilising the game. As I have two low levels games that have time for items from Varisia to be created.
Items from: Jade Regent books 1, 2 and 3.
Items to create from: Jade Regent books 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Artefacts: Artefacts cannot travel through astral space, and will not go through gates or any form of teleport teleportation (including fey step), remaining behind when the holder of the item uses such movement.
