Conversions?


Product Discussion

Sovereign Court Owner - Enchanted Grounds, President/Owner - Enchanted Grounds

I'm Not sure where to post this, and I can't find anywhere that someone has already asked, so I'm going to do so here:

Are there any plans to convert older Pathfinder stuff to the PFRPG rules? I know it's not supposed to be a difficult conversion, and you just need to do CMB and CMD, and blah, blah, blah...but I'm sure there are balance issues and experience point progression issues and other things that people who do this for a living (yes, I'm looking at you, Paizo) would be able to do faster than I. So, anyone know anything about this?

Paizo is not converting old stuff to PFRPG.
I'm sure you will see much fan converted stuff.

Though, I don't think it's necessary. YMMV.

We'll know how easy or hard it is to do when the conversion document comes out.

I plan to have a large quantity of Paizo 3.5 system open content added to http://www.d20pfsrd.com. Check back in a week or two and we should have most of the final rules up as well as beginning to port in older material. This is one of the ways we hope to stand out from the "official" SRD, by including content that the official one will not. If you have content you'd like to see there come on over and post a request on the Feature Request board (or volunteer to help update the site to the final rules and add / convert content!).

If you think you would like to volunteer, shoot me an email at jreyst@gmail.com.

There's no plan to convert all of our pre PFRPG product, no; but some of it will end up getting converted as time goes on. Particularly monsters we pick up for inclusion in Bestiaries... although this is more of a compilation project than a conversion project. But one of our primary reasons for keeping the game very compatible with 3.5 rules was precisely this reason; we didn't want to obsolete the last several years of our work, and wanted all of our 3.5 products to still be usable with the new rules. So really... no conversion is necessary.

We WILL be providing a short Conversion Guide PDF to help with what small bits of conversion work do need to be done, though; the PDF will be available on Thursday.
