In no particular order...

Forgotten Realms

Elric of Melniboné (Stormbringer)

Scarred Lands

A Game of Thrones


Westeros is not a D&D campaign setting, that I am sure of.

none for me, Golarion (amd its solar system) has them all covered:)

As others have correctly pointed out, many of these settings are closed content or otherwise unavailable for conversion.

The Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk are certainly off the table. I would imagine so are most of the others like Planescape, Dragonlance, Eberron, Spelljammer, Ravenloft, Dark Sun etc.

Not really sure what the point of this is ...

Pretty sure it's fishing for ideas of "what themes do people want more of".

I don't think anyone thinks Louis is planning on actually converting these worlds specifically. But people saying "I want more Dark Sun" gives a pretty concise way of saying "I want more post-apocalyptic, harsh worlds with a heavy focus on survival with some psionic flavor and some things I'm certainly forgetting".

Ditto with "I want more Eberron" being simpler to say than "I want advanced magical technology, non-standard monster/race alignments and associations, more complex and less absolute divine arrangements, and lots of political maneuvering between noble houses and powerful mercantile empires".

If that were true, count me out. I'm not interested in the "theme", I'm interested in the specific campaign world. If that is not possible, I'll pass.

The gerbils in my skull want me to tell you that a Maztica inspired campaign with Ravenloft's dark lords and a blight caused by defiler-style magic, in which everyone wields obsidian-edged war clubs and wears parrot-feather and jaguar capes would be the bomb.

whoa! thats weird the Alien Hamsters that muck about in my hair that only i can see or understand have been telling me the same thing!


Planescape, but only if that included Sigil and the Factions. Because it was awesome.

I would love to see Ravenloft done as well. I normally stick to home-brewed settings but this is something I'd buy up quite a few campaign resources for that one.

YOU HEAR ME! I WILL PAY MONEY! REAL MONIES!


Planescape
Ravenloft
Dark Sun

I like Greyhawk too, but I don't trust anyone to do it except for someone like Erik Mona or Roger Moore. And I own...ALMOST every single Greyhawk thing out there, (one or two things I am missing), so I don't actually need any Greyhawk stuff (though it would be nice...)

1) Pre-spell plague Forgotten Realms
2) All other Faerunian settings (Al-quadim, Kara Tur, Maztica)
3) Planescape, berk!
4) Ummm...

Heck, I'm running a FR campaign right now (that I've been running since 1991), and the year is only 1364 DR, so long way to go before the spellplague shenanigans affect me at all, anyway.


Birthright
Spelljammer
Red Steel
Mystara

Ravenloft (If the best authors who really GET the setting and SUBTLE horror took over...Think VRG to the Shadow Fey/Gazetteer-series/Bleak House)
Dark Sun
Midnight (With APs and MANY modules; We have the sourcebooks!)
Maztica (or a similar South-American-style setting)
Not-Planescape (too tied with cosmology; Something NEW in the vein)
Spelljammer (since Sailing the Starlit Seas failed...)


In no particular order:

  • Al-Qadim
  • Dark Sun
  • Spelljammer
  • Ravenloft (though I hear there is a pretty solid conversion out there)
  • And you know what? I like parts of Eberron. Not all of it, but at least it was creative :-)


  • Kalamar
    Dragonmech
    Dragonstar
    Maztica

    Greyhawk, mostly for nostalgia reasons, but I agree that Golarion does well in emulating most of the feel.

    Birthright, bolted on to Golarion, would also be interesting.

    Maztica.

    The Hollow World basic D&D thing was also cool.

    I second your Kalamar motion, seeing as I was an author for LKoK.


    1) Spelljammer, but a little more serious. I loved the elves/orcs war, neogi and illithids, but the giant space hamsters, and other comedic toys kinda detracted from the feel.

    2) Ravenloft. Love horror games, especially subtle horror.

    3) Dark Sun. Underdogs fighting against corrupt, near-godlike rulers in a post-apocalyptic setting? Yes please!

    4) Planescape. Intrigue, machinations and the power-mad fighting the crazy-mad! You had me at "intrigue"...

    I really just want to see a Pathfinder Basiran Dancer. That was a really neat class. :)

    To be honest, I have always toyed with the concept of a multi-world plane-hopping campaign, but life of the the gaming groups mean that I was never able to push the idea to fruition.

    Much frustration here


    Birthright.


    1. Ghostwalk (how has NO-ONE mentioned this?!?)

    Wide margin to second place ...

    2. Dragonlance
    3. Ravenloft
    4. Dark Sun

    I was VERY hard-pressed to chose four, so others I would LOVE to see ...

    5. Greyhawk
    6. Eberron
    7. Planescape

    I'm also in the camp that if one of these was updated for REALZ (a fully licensed product) for PFRPG rules I would throw money at it. But if it's just a inspired-by setting I would most definitely pass.

    Can't wait to see what you have going Louis!


    1. Eberron- theres a lot of goodies in there, it takes high magic to another level, so many unique races and the artificer class. They must all be part of pathfinder!

    2.Ravenloft- Good ol' horror setting, would prove to bring many new and interesting rules to the for front for pathfinder.

    3.Rokugan- I want more oriental themed stuff for pathfinder, and I really don't care where it comes from!

    4.Spelljammer/highscifi setting- I just would enjoy a setting focused on flying through space, encountering various worlds, using rediculous tech/magic. It really brings a new edge on exploring a fantasy setting.

    HM.Kingdoms of Kalamar- Very low high fantasy stuff, sometimes you just want a campaign without all the ridiculous races, and focusing more on elements that dont involve fighting rediculous monsters, and just creating intersting characters without going the crazy route of Aismar Sorcerer/barbarian with a crossblooded undead/fey bloodline!

    Yeah Dragon Kings really isn't Athas enough for me. So if it were possible, then yes, Dark Sun.

    And adding another vote for Birthright. Loved the awnsheglein (sp) and cultures like the Khinasi and the Vosgaard.


    4 people marked this as a favorite.

    But I agree with posters above - all of this is moot if what results is "thematic". I don't want "not-quite-Eberron" or "not-quite-Athas". Soemthig completely new would be interesting, or a true conversion.

    Well, a true conversion of pretty much any of these is impossible, or so nearly so as not to be worth speculating on. So if that's your expectation, you might as well bow out now before you're inevitably disappointed.

    I don't have any expectations, so I can't be disappointed. I'm curious about the possibilities. I'm fairly sure this is all just testing the waters of desire for Louis to make something that isn't a true conversion, but he's being cagey and dangling "wait and see"s.

    As to the worth of speculation… ;)

    If it's impossible, then why ask?

    If the question was meant to be about themes rather than about the settings, it could have been clearer about it.

    For me personally, it doesn't make much of a difference to my answer. I want to see Maztica, yes, but if the question were about themes instead, I'd still want to see Native American themes. So it's not a big difference for me.

    But I can easily understand that the same doesn't hold for many people. A person wanting to see the Forgotten Realms isn't automatically going to want to see a new generic fantasy setting.

    TL;DR: I think this thread would have benefited from an early appearance by the Department of Expectation Management.

    Eberron, while skipping over the fact that magic has completely replaced science/technology as to allow gunslingers/alchemists. Maybe making magic vs tech a theme?

    Spelljammer. Sailing through space. Awesome.

    Dark Sun. Admittedly don't know a whole lot about this setting, but the little I've read seems interesting.

    Ghostwalk/Ravenloft mash-up. 'Nuff said.

    This is pretty standard procedure for Louis, admittedly. He's fairly fond of being vague and cagey and then doing a "big reveal". As someone pointed out earlier, it's got its fans and its detractors as a method.


    Yup. Well aware.

    Don't get me started. :)

    THREADJACK --

    Yes I think this is standard procedure for 95% of the marketing in the world. Apple. Samsung. Marvel Comic. Adobe. Most blockbuter movies teaser trailers. Paizo AND WOTC too.

    There will always be people who like one thing and an equal amount who hate it. I asked a simple question: What four (4) D&D campaign setting would you like to see converted for use in Pathfinder?

    Now I have people looking into the MOTIVE of why I asked that question instead of actually answering the question. Better question would be is: Why are you so interested in what my future plans are?

    -- END OF THREADJACK

    I already answered the questions. I find discerning the motive to be as interesting as reading about what other people are interested in as I am interested in why you made the thread in the first place. This is the Compatible Products from Other Publishers forum on Paizo's website. Not twitter or Facebook.

    C'mon Louis. Whatcha up to? ;P

    I think you greatly overestimate that. At the very least, most of those are significantly less vague about it. But we've had this conversation before, about the whole "any advertising is good advertising" mindset.

    Well, as OSW said, everyone currently involved in this discussion/speculation has already answered the question =P Unless you don't want people posting at all who have already done so, this is the inevitable, logical next step in the train of conversation.

    Quote:

    Less for myself, because anything you produce is either going to be something I can pick apart and use for my own homebrew setting, or something I won't be interested in anyway. But a lot of people seem to be under the mistaken impression that there's a chance that this is actually bringing those desired settings to an updated Pathfinder conversion, and are now more often stating that if they're just going to get a setting "inspired" or "themed" like the ones they're requesting and not the ACTUAL SETTING itself, they're not going to be interested.

    So it's an issue of people getting their hopes up, when inevitably they're going to be let down because the thing they want just isn't possible.

    No one's asking you to come out and say "here's everything we're planning", but as Samy said, a little Department of Expectation Management minor "yes/no"ing might not be a bad idea.

    Give me a campaign setting in the Americas with the natives and I'll totally buy it. And help with it.

    Applauds.

    I'd be interested.

    We could completely hijack the thread to be:

    Tell Louis what themed CS you would totally buy.
