Looking to start a group in Las Vegas (Buffalo/Alta area)for friday or saturday evenings. I'm up for just about anything;
You name it, I'll play or GM (if I have it)!
Top of the list would be
Hero Lab for the Pathfinder Beginner Box is being finished up now, so unless there are any major last-minute surprises, it will be out before the weekend.
Awesome news! Is it using the same character sheet layout as the full Pathfinder rules when printed, or one closer to the Beg Box?
That's cool that some Beginner's Box adventures are being written. I love the BB and how it makes me feel like when I first opened the Basic D&D Red Box set.
It really did not work well for TSR. Spliting the player base into diffent groups lead to the downfall of TSR.
Not so much, it's more likely the splitting into a dozen different settings did this as Basic was around for close to 20 years before TSR went out. If it was Basic's fault, TSR would've been in trouble alot earlier I think. I started with Basic in 1980 and bought stuff for both games. It was pretty easy to use stuff from both games in your campaign.
For me, I use a basic Pathfinder - I strip out the tactical combat stuff. If I want tactical I'll play 4e. I take out AoO and maps. Combat becomes much quicker, especially with the CMB and CMD. Players spend alot less time worrying about where they're moving to and just attack.
This doesn't speed up character generation, but after the pc's are made, the game plays pretty quick. I like the options at PC gen that Pathfinder has and don't really want to change that part for my home games.
Oh wow! I haven't thought about that movie in years. My buddy and I rented it probably sometime around 88 or 89. That and "Deadly Friend". HAHA I may have to track down a copy of that one to see it again!

No, Spring Dawning was never made, not until the new ones by Devil's Due. I don't know why they were never made though.
I do like the new GN's but the old ones were awesome, I was lucky enough to get all 5 when they came out.
I look forward to retirement and being able to game like when I was a kid! They'll have to pry the die out of my cold dead fingers!! lol I don't care if I have to sit there in a diaper, as long as I can throw the dice I'm rpg-ing!!
I look forward to seeing the game, I haven't gotten to try it out yet.
