3.5 to PF conversion?


Rise of the Runelords


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Tales Subscriber

From what i know the Rise of the Runelords AP uses the 3.5 ruleset, so i ask:
Is there any conversion to the PF ruleset? (official or fanmade)
Thank you.

Nearly every single encounter and creature named in the AP is listed here. Just follow the links to each issue and you'll find a list of the creatures and NPCs.

Nothing official, by the way. Every time one of these threads pops up (and they happen a lot), Paizo staff say not to expect anything of the sort any time soon.

I've actually gone through the Bestiary 2 and found that several of the monsters in Runelords (Like the Shining Child in FotSG, or the Faceless Stalker from Skinsaw.) A more in-depth search may find even more that have been officially converted on the sly.

True, they have done that with quite a few, actually. Be careful, though; with some of them, they changed the challenge rating or gave them abilities they didn't originally have. That changes the fight pretty significantly. One I can think of right away:

spoiler:
I'm pretty sure the Shemhazian demon in Sins of the Saviors did not have flight in the published module. It gains it in the Bestiary II. That's a pretty significant change. His poison abilities are also dramatically altered. If I'm not mistaken, his CR went from 14 in the module to 16 in the Bestiary II. These things change that encounter a lot.

Just make sure to check old versus new when using any publications and make adjustments as you see fit. The D20PFSRD people did update to the Bestiary versions, by the way, as they were published.

For official stuff on the class NPCs, you won't find anything. Not yet.

I didn't really expect something official (although a man can always hope) but thank you for the link (fan conversion is way better than no conversion).

Again thank you.

Question:
Some NPC and monsters don't have link to conversions, is that because it's not needed (NPC not a fight, monster is in bestiary etc.) or because they just haven't done it yet?

Most of what they haven't done is older templates that don't have a correlation for PFRPG (diseased), traps that operate fine as-is, or non-combatants. They also may not have gotten to the last two modules (NPCs with class levels are a lot of work at high levels). If you need those sooner than they might get to them, go to this thread and leave your email address. He'll send you a file of what he's done.
