(not sure ifn this is the correct forum for this- so if not, mods please move)

i looked around the message boards and couldnt find anything relating to this question. so.......

once the Pathfinder RPG is released (or maybe even just before) are there any plans to have conversion pdf's for the first 3 adventure paths- Savage Tide, Age of Worms and Shackled City??

or is this something the community will need to do??

and yes, i realize there will be issues as those adventure paths were set in "Greyhawk" (although loosely enough to not really matter) and WOTC still owns the rights to Greyhawk.

but was just wondering if there any plans for such in the future???

Those are wholly owned by Wizards of the Coast; we can't do anything with them.

But scuttlebut has it that James Sutter and Chris Self are on a secret mission with Kyle Hunter to steal SCAP, AoW and STAP back from the Dark Side. If they're lucky they'll be able to get all the mags from about #70 onward.

The plan is for Kyle to create a distraction by slapping Bill Slaviscek across the face and amid the Chaos the Paizo Secret-Ops-Team is going to sneak in.

Hopefully, this will also give Chris Young a chance to escape his bondage there and return to the Good Side.

This is my favorite rumor EVER...


No, there is not going to be an official conversion. Why? No, I don't have any insider knowledge. But I don't need one to know that such a labor of love would be exactly that. Paizo would get exactly 0 benefit from using their workforce to create a conversion for someone else's intellectual property. (Generating goodwill alone generally doesn't sell unrelated product.) Remember that as publishers, they were only licensed to publish dungeon and dragon magazine; they were never given any ownership in the affair, which WotC retained in toto.

As for a community effort, I have already begun converting SCAP, as my group is about to begin Drakthar's Way. I already have half the adventure converted to Alpha 3 and will post the entire document when I am done. I plan to continue posting my conversions as my group moves through the path. Where I will be hosting those conversions is another matter. I don't have my own site at the moment so I would probably host it through EN World or another site like that. But keep your eyes peeled on these boards for when I finish Drakthar's Way.

We were already halfway through Jzadirune when Alpha 1 was released so I didn't bother converting much of that adventure. I may go back and convert it for fun, but that remains to be seen.

this is good news! I was planning on using SCAP as my first PathfinderRPG adventure.


Remember also the goal of Pathfinder is BACK-COMPATIBILITY. This means that when you've got your grubby mitts on the final release, you should still be able to run any of your old adventures with the minimal of fuss/conversion. So far, I've had no trouble using other 3.X sources both official and 3rd party, with the Pathfinder Alphas.

Peace,
