3.5 Rules Compendium and Pathfinder


Liberty's Edge

I'll admit, one of the last 3.5 products from Wizards of the Coast is the one I find most useful for DMing: the Rules Compendium, which does a better job of organizing it's rules for ease of access then their old PHB and DM guides did.

And admittingly, I often find myself having the same problem finding just the right rule to refer to when I'm GMing a Pathfinder game. So the Rules Compendium comes off as a good extra book to keep in a pinch. But there are changes between 3.5 and Pathfinder, not the least of which is the addition of Combat Maneuver rules and unified skills.

I'll have to take another look at it. I threw it in a box in disgust when I saved up two months to purchase it only to have WotC announce 4E the next week.

I can't see it having any use in PF. There are just too many changes to core mechanics, little adjustments that make each unique from its 3.5 genesis. You would have to put post-its on about every page detailing the changes.

The PF SORD is much more intuitive.
