Pathfinder

Post by Thamin Trollsbane » Fri Jul 01, 2016 8:16 am

No one posted here yet? I'm shocked!

When D&D 3rd edition, and later 3.5 came out, they offered up an open license for other companies to create products compatible with their system. Little did they realize a game called Pathfinder would come to great success using that license and be nicknamed "D&D 3.75".

We have a big gaming convention up here in Minnesota. The last few years, there has been more people playing Pathfinder than all the different D&D versions combined. In Feb 2016, over a hundred Pathfinders played the "Saturday night special", in which each table had their own levels but the individuals successes and actions at the tables contributed to the overall progress up on a big screen.

Are other Grievance folks Pathfinder players?

I don't know that I could keep up any regular game. If it's weekends, I could rotate with another GM or do a limited few-in-a-row and then switch back to player so someone else gets a turn, etc.

I bought pathfinder in hopes to play but I live in a small town and the closest place is over an hour away. If we were to do something online is it hard for a newbie to learn?

You could look at either Fantasy Grounds (which comes with the PF ruleset free) or Roll20 to play online... Then there is no need to go to the store. If ya have any questions on how to get FG setup, etc let me know!

One thing I would have trouble doing is getting the online setup as nice as Shmo has. I'm trying to recall the gaming site that helps set some of that up automatically.

I think one thing that helped Pathfinder grow was having an open license. The expense of keeping up with the editions of DnD are getting crazy. I mean 2nd edition probably was the most expensive given all the expansion materials, however the major editions might have ways to make previous ones compatible. In the end they all come down to selling more books by making all new rules and conditions.

At the time I was one of a few players that where not happy with 3rd at all as I think it did not make anything better over 2nd except make saving throws more simple. I am not the biggest fan of pathfinder but seems to be catching on big here locally as well. I host 2 groups on the weekends and I can say I find it funny how quickly younger generations adapt to it and all I can see is because its heavily invested in having all the information free to use online.
Although you can not control the choices others make around you, you can choose how you react and are influenced by these choices.
