OK here is something for you:

What if I told you in this Adventure Path there would be a campaign setting / world destroying power ACTUALLY destroying campaign setting / worlds and the PCs would travel to MANY different campaign setting / worlds to prevent this happening?

What if I told you some times the PCs will save the campaign setting / worlds and some time they will not be able to?

What if I told you the enemy you would be facing would be unlike ANY foe you have ever faced in AP for Pathfinder and only wants to cause the extinction of all that are not like themselves?

What if I told you the top 3PP have said they would be interested in helping on and taking part of this AP?

Now, would you be interested is what I am doing NOW?

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.

But once again, what people infer and assume are on themselves. I asked a simple and straight forward question and that is what I wanted the answer to.

Oh... I was hoping this would be fully fleshed out settings, not one offs for an adventure.

I don't care what sort of stuff it would be, I just love the following and would love it done justice:

1. RAVENLOFT (my first ever campaign was Expedition to Castle Ravenloft...)
2. Al-Qadim
3. Sarlona (if we're allowed to pick a section of a setting. If not, Eberron)
4. Dragonlance

Well that might be part of it, but we have to work out a few bits of logistics.

First I would say "what has this at all to do with the question in the Original Post?"

Then I would say "sounds like Planescape/Doctor Who/An old Campaign I ran in Palladium before RIFTS came out using Ninjas and Superspies, TMNT, Palladium, After the Bomb, Heroes Unlimited etc etc etc."

LMPjr007 wrote:

Um. Sounds like a regular campaign with a chance of failure or success. But I'm guessing perhaps you are alluding to temporal planar hijinks that might affect the outcome.

I would call hyperbole and the deepest of shenanigans. Sheer marketing blather. I hear that kinda stuff all the time. But by all means go for it. But no tentacles ok?

LMPjr007 wrote:

Again. Sorry Louis, but I do I hear that all the time. "Top" "3PP". Means little to me. I care not for names or pedigree. The "top" authors are good, but they rarely write anything I'm particularly interested in. But I do love me an intriguing and evocative concept dripping with atmosphere.

LMPjr007 wrote:

Um. No. But others definitely will. As usual, I need to point out I'm an outlier with uber-specific tastes and a zero-tolerance for rigmarole.

Is this anything to do with Cross of Fire?

If you are wondering about theme vs actual setting: lets say Wizards starts licensing off their settings to companies like LPJ and JBE and other small companies. The license is going to include a clause that says it the company cannot convert this to any other system. It can only be D&D 5e. How do I know that without seeing anything? Because Wizards wants to sell their system books. If they can't snag someone with Forgotten Realms, but they can get someone to join the 5e ranks with greyhawk or dark sun that wizards didn't have to write, but are instead getting paid to allow someone else to publish the book, then that is just money in the bank for them.

So if someone is talking about converting one of D&D's official settings to pathfinder, its going to be a "same themes" "serial numbers filed off" kind of situation.

Sorry to intrude Louis. I just wanted to help clarify.

Which is about what I expected, but for a lot of people it's apparently a massive turn-off. They either want the real thing or nothing at all, as several comments in this thread have attested.


1. 2E / early 3E FR (because that's the timeline & primary setting I'm currently running most of my PF home game in)
2. Al'Qadim (probably the best flavor+crunch I've seen in a camp setting)
3. Birthright (because highlander metaphysics would probably work really well in higher-powered PF)
4. Dark Sun (because all the gnomes were already dead - it was like a vacation!)

Like most, I would not really be interested in FR "theme", only the reality.

LMPjr007 wrote:

I'd say it sounds like the campaign I've been writing & running for the last several years with my final arc scheduled to clock in with approx. 30th L characters at the end (which I'm guessing will be in 12-15 years).

Yeah. My issue there is that the serial numbers tend to be the very thing I'm buying that book *for* :)

If I want a conversion of stats out of a book from one game system to another, I'd do it myself, and would hope most other decent GMs could. If I want a nice, neatly organized setting book with the relevant stats right there on the same page as the setting text, I'll pay for it. Anything I have to cross-reference, however, just complicates my already overly cross-referenced game even more.

That said, books like the Pathfinder Technology Guide, which aren't really tied to any particular setting but can be used to help facilitate a number of them, are certainly appreciated. For the majority of settings though, I usually don't really need anything other than the original setting book and the Pathfinder CRB and bestiaries.

I'd be fine with that. Although I'd assume that, at least for the best-Forgotten Realms ( :P ) they would probably only license out individual products, instead of the entire FR franchise altogether.

As for what I would find interesting, it would also depend on the setting and the publisher. Some publishers would be a good fit for some settings, but not as great for other settings.

As an example, LPJ would probably be great for some of the less standard-fantasy stuff, like Dark Sun, Spelljammer, Planescape, Eberron, etc. But conversely, something that's a bit closer to standard fantasy, like Greyhawk, Forgotten Realms, Dragonlance, Birthright, etc; wouldn't be as natural a fit for LPJ, in my opinion.

Meaning no disrespect to LPJ...I'm sure they would turn out great stuff for a more standard fantasy campaign, but I think they would shine even more for the less-standard settings.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Forgotten Realms (only if actually converted)

but otherwise
Birthright
Dragonlance
Ravenloft
maybe Ghostwalk....

An undead/demon/dragon apocalypse fantasy setting would be awesome.


Scarred Lands.
Eberron.
Planescape.
Birthright.


In order of preference:

1. Planescape
2. Eberron
3. Ravenloft
4. Scarred Lands

Liberty's Edge

Just my two cents nothing against Louis. But I seriously doubt that WOTC would license one of its settings for Pathfinder conversion. Since 5e has come out I think they'll release stuff for 5e.

that being said.

1. Dragonlance 2. Forgotten Realms. 3. Greyhawk. 4. Spelljammer.

Take my money! Please take my money!

In all seriousness though, that info does influence my choices so maybe you should have started with that. Now, I'd put Greyhawk first. The others should have different themes. Darksun = desert + psionic. Eberron = pulp + noir + magepunk. Ravenloft = horror.
Something like that I guess.
No Planescape/Spelljammer, because the story is already about planethopping.

Right I agree 100%. there was a 3rd party d20 book that had Planescape "themes" in it but it wasn't official Planescape stuff.

For 3rd party stuff I'd love to see Dragonstar or DragonMech or Iron Kingdoms. I'd defiantly throw some money at a Iron Kingsdoms conversion.

Plaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanescape.

I will in fact pay money for someone to run a campaign and let me play Annah from Planescape Torment as a Pathfinder grimspawn rogue/brawler specializing in punch daggers.

But the Planescape setting in general, very yes now.

Also, oddly enough, Grayhawk. It isn't necessarily my favorite setting ever but it a solid, classic, simple fantasy adventure world that would be fun to play in with Pathfinder rules.

I'd be willing to jump in as a consultant, particularly the North American Southeast Ceremonial Complex, Mississippian, Hopewell & Moundbuilders culture, and I could probably pull in some contacts from the Eastern Woodlands and Central Plains nations/tribes.

I am working on something for future release and I wanted to get feedback from the Pathfinder fanbase: What four (4) D&D campaign setting would you like to see converted for use in Pathfinder? Edition doesn’t matter just the setting. Thanks!

1) Dragonstar

3) Dark Sun
4) The Known World


Coming in late but my 4, in order, are:

Spelljammer
Dragonstar
Hollow World
Eberron

I like the odd ones - space, inner world, steampunk (sorta)

And I don't mind the "serial numbers filed off" thing. It's tone and style I like about these all.


1,2,3,4 - Dark Sun.


Can Krynn be one of the worlds that isn't saved and goes up in a great, fiery kaboom?

It sounds like Crisis on Infinite Earths the AP, which could be good if done properly.

That's essentially how I feel. I can file off serial numbers on my own and just use all the background from setting x except using monsters from the Pathfinder Bestiary and writing up important NPCs as Pathfinder classes. Prepared, well thought out fluff is awesome to have, but fluff is infinitely transmutable. If any of the old settings would make an official appearance in Pathfinder I would get them for their specialized mechanics to support the setting, not for their fluff. I already got that in the old versions and don't need it again.

Well there you go. I'd definitely take a look at this and toss a few coins in the KS bucket if the writers interest me. It would also be impetus enough to dust off some of those old books and boxed sets and use the real setting info rather than not-Athas, not-Toril, not Midnight, etc...

Given the scope, this will have to be a twelve issue maxi-series like its inspiration :D


1. Planescape
2. Spelljammer
3. Kara -Tur-which got the hose in 1 and 2e and was dropped altogether in favor of Rokugan. Since so little was published about Kara-Tur, Paizo can make it it's own.
4. Eberron

FWIW, The question of which settings I'd rather have converted to pathfinder (which I answered) has a different answer than the question of which settings I'd like to visit in an AP.
