I have not looked into them, but I have never been a fan of technology in a fantasy game. The class that I like the least, and in all likelihood will never even consider playing, is the Gunslinger. I know that some love it, but for me it just does not fit in a world with magic. After all, if people can teleport across great distances and shoot fireballs more than a tenth of a mile, who needs airplanes and guns.


I feel a bit on the same page, but it seems Pathfinder has taken the Final Fantasy route. I am of the opinion they have created multiple campaign sttings without seperate branding leaving it up to is to exclude what we dislike. The lasers really destroy a bit of the DnD feel, but maybe that is what they want?


Anyone pick up the DnD yet?

The flavor sounds good. Are they fun adventures to run? It sounds like some TPK threats for low level characters.

I've just started Trial by Machine.

So far so good.

TPK traps only if you roll craptacular characters, in which case you had it coming. :p


These books scream for a Chrono Trigger game, lol. I am buying them today. Grippli paladin time.

I've looked over the first one, seems interesting enough to me. Looking forward to seeing where in unfolds.


It took a really long time for them to elaborate on this portion of Golarion. I think they had to be firmly rooted in order to not alienate a core readership. Now that the game has been out for 5 years it might renew some interest where people had started to look elsewhere.


Any of you guys ever use D20Pro? They have a Kickstarter going right now to update the system to accommodate more systems and streamline a few other things. Not sure how much fun VTTs actually are.

In the past it always worried me when a system began to expand into multiple worlds/timezones/archetypical settings without clearly separating them from one another - for example by different rulesets.

AD&D didnt need Spelljammer ;)

I downloaded the free PDF of the rules. It looks like they have brought back many of the elements of 3.0/3.5 that we liked. At a glance, there are many differences, but it is recognizable as d&d. However, I have no inclination to change gaming systems at this point. I love Pathfinder way too much!


I am not sure how they will balance the tech advantage of a laser toting gunslinger against a PC with a blackpowder musket or long sword. It does erode the reality of any less advanced culture not bowing to the Technic League.


Hey Harp, thanks for the input. I kinda want to get them just to give DnD a shot again. Haven't played it since 1996. I miss Beholders, lol.

I am trying to keep an open mind, but I remember the feeling of such loss when they went to 4th edition. I loved 3rd edition, but I hated what WOTC did to my game after that. Discovering Pathfinder was such a joy! I feel like Pathfinder became D&D the way it was suppose to be. I mean, even the core rule book is dedicated to Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson. I guess I felt like I found my people. Now that D&D Next is here, I'm not sure how to feel. My loyalty has switched to Pathfinder, and I don't think I will switch back.

However, I have fond memories of the World of Greyhawk, Keep on the Borderlands, White Plume Mountain, The Caverns of Tsjocanth, the Tomb of Horrors, and creatures such as Beholders and Mind Flayers!

I jumped off at 3rd Ed, I wasn't having a bar of it, and won't go back now.

It will just remain a happy memory.

Yeah, 3rd never attracted my attention as it just felt like a table top video game. I ended up going back to 2nd at the time.

Oh yeah, no way back...maybe only for a round of AD&D Forgotten realms ;)

I always found Greyhawk vastly superior to Forgotten Realms. Forgotten Realms started what I consider the - lets be lazy and just make a world that is pretty much the same as the real world. Golarian does the same thing unfortunately, although I still like it better than FR. Both have a west facing continent with a large semi-landlocked sea that separates a cooler northern land from a hot deserty/jungle covered southern land. Both have big barbarians who live on the far northern coast and like to raid in longships. Etc. It is like - just reprint the Europe map with the Mediterranean and norther Africa thrown in for good measure - and save yourselves the time of having to redraw it.
