Pathfinder

So I bought the pathfinder core book a few days ago. If you have not heard of Pathfinder it’s a split off of the D&D brand. Basically when 4th edition came out some of the main guys behind 3rd and 3.5 switched companies and started the Pathfinder system with Piazo entertainment. My first impressions of Pathfinder is that it is very a very close cousin to 3.5 D&D. Most of the core concepts are exactly the same. In fact without careful examination it’s hard to tell that it is even different than 3.5.  Many of the skills have been changes, feats reworked and concepts tightened but under the hood it’s still basically Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 edition.
Over the next couple weeks I’m going to go through the book and explain how each chapter is different than its 3.5 counterpart.   I’d like to see some comments especially from anyone who has planned or run any games.

Below you will see some awesome pictures of classes from Pathfinder. They are as follows: Barbarian, Samurai, Paladin, and Monk.

  3. It does sound like it was what people hoped D&D 4 would be.

  4. Is it weird that I was always more interested in the art of D&D then actually playing the game? Back in the old days, when I was a teen ager, it was my job in our group to illustrate each persons characters.

  5. Looking forward to your posts. I've been interested in Pathfinder since it came out a year or so ago, but still find myself having issues forking over $30+ dollars for a copy... would love to run a "fixed" version of 3.5 with a group... my friends have always preferred 3.0 and 3.5 to 2nd anyways...
