My Conversions to PF

(23 items)

During my translation work I have done several conversions to Pathfinder (even some 3rd party material). Here is the list:

This was NOT my first conversion, since the module came out as a promo in a magazine as is (i.e. 3.5). A year later I converted the module to Pathfinder and it was offered for download on the German Pathfinder website.

THIS was my first conversion to Pathfinder. PLUS it was my first complete translation. I did some translation work in the Core Rulebook, but not much (i.e. the complete "Additional Rules" section, plus the Classes chapter in our transition from Beta to the Core Rulebook).

This conversion was a joint venture with Mario Schmiedel. I was only consulted for some of the more difficult statblocks.

This was the book, that made it clear to us, that conversion to Pathfinder will be a major work, if you want to do it right. More work, than we estimated in the beginning. Conversion meant: also updating all Encounter lists in the Appendix, all the spells, magic items, the variant and prestige classes...

This is the book, that taught me to convert monster statblocks... as these 10 dragons were extremely difficult to convert (i managed to squeeze in the size mali into the AC at the very last minute).

This conversion contains my biggest mistake, though not in the conversion itself, but in the text for a Special Ability of the Lurker in the Light. I used the German word for beholder for a viewpoint of a person, not knowing that it was already taken by the most fearsome (WotC-IP) eyeballing monster. This brought us the lowest review note ever, as the reviewer used this example to grind his axe against our translation efforts.

This book contained my first design work for a conversion, as I had to design three domains (void, scalykind and creation) for PF. They have all been succeeded by official versions, but I am still proud of these three domains.

This book is in hindsight the book where a real conversion will really be possible once the mythic rules are available. The Queen uses levels of Archmage... This statblock was one of the most difficult statblocks ever (together with the ruby prince Kemmet III. and the biggest dragons from Dragons revisited plus the shoggoth from W3).

I am very proud of this book. the conversion work was very limited, but we managed to fill the map of the vale with life, plus we managed to incorporate the changes to the Five Kings Mountians from Dwarves of Golarion into this book. (Thanks to James Jacobs and Mike McArtor for their input)

This conversion was more difficult than other conversions, but this was not because of the critters and the variant stuff in there. The difficult part was the big encounter table in the front cover.

This is the second conversion, that contained some design work. This time it was the vermin companions. I tried to contact Jason about this work I had done when Paizo was designing Ultimate Magic (but i got no answer though).

Parallel to "Elves of Golarion" this book contained the statblock of Kemmet III. with levels of hierophant. I had to change this back to cleric levels in order to convert this book. Nowadays I would try to give him Mythic levels.

This was the book, that was the 2nd biggest conversion effort ever. But you say... this book is a Pathfinder book.. and you are right, but the encoutner tables for the Mwangi Expanse referenced a whole lot of monsters from older AP volumes (Divs and many many more) that we created a web enhancement for this book, that was nearly as big as the book itself...

This book was converted nearly completely by myself. I was able to use small bits and pieces from other books (already PF) in the setting, but I had to convert most things myself. Luckily PCGEN was able to help... a lot...

This module has a little story to tell... about the Shoggoth. The version presented here (3.5) was a CR 14 encounter. The one in the Bestiary was CR 17 and would have killed the group instantly, if they had encountered it in the lost city. Then along came a wonderful article in Kobold Quarterly about shoggoths and proto-shoggoths as smaller versions of these critters. Excellent! I had my solution. I'd convert the shoggoth in the module as a proto-Shoggoth from the article (just a small adjustment of section1 5 of the OGL and done).... and then came Sally (i.e. Serpent Skull part 5 or 6), and it contained a Proto-Shoggoth, also one, that i would not be able to use for the module... sigh, so i converted this "Thing from Beyond" as a Primal shoggoth, an older version that was not tempered and further developed by their aboleth masters. (plus I also translated the whole thing, because I had run it for my home campaign).
