he´s working on the Pathfinder PCRPG with Obsidian.
To make that single player Pathfinder RPG with an AP-like story finaly.
After D&D disapointed there heavily with Legends of the Sword Coast, and after the surprising Humble Bundle deal, such a PC game, where Pathfinder mechanics aren´t changed like in PFO, but ported 1:1 or nearly there, might very well be the road to unequaled glory.

Incredibly glitchy.

Maybe in the Know Direction podcast on April 6? Argh, the anticipation!

We generally don't announce big things on podcasts like Know Direction—those are better used to explore and chat about things we've already talked about.

As evidenced by the past, our preferred venue for making big announcements is to do so at big conventions. Like say, PaizoCon or Gen Con, of course... but sometimes other major industry conventions that happen at other times of the year...

So something announced this week at GDC which explains why Jessica Price is there....

I'm excited!

VERY SOON or Very Soon™?

My bets are on Obsidian making a Pathfinder CRPG based on the Pillars of Eternity engine.

Ahh, well, when will you be announcing the date of the announcement? If you can't tell us that, can you tell us the date when you will be able to? If not, we'll be satisfied if you could just let us know when that's going to change. <Grin>

GDC isn't really a "convention" in the way I'm talking about it. And while Jessica is certainly representing Paizo there, she is not attending GDC on Paizo's dime.

Isn't Erik off at some convention at the moment? He's big on announcing things. :)


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Pathfinder Accessories Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Starfinder Superscriber

Hmm, does the GAMA trade show count as a convention?

Considering we've got like half a dozen of our senior employees there this week, I would indeed count it as a convention.

He's developing a new hybrid of tyrannosaur that gains a stegosaurus spiked tail and replaces the puny arms with utahraptor jaws.

1:00-2:00pm Tuesday - paizo publisher preview - I'm going to guess that's when the magic will happen.

So, based on the way that James has been trying to manage expectations about this secret project, which of us will be the first back here to say, "Uh, that's it?"

;-)

You would be surprised at the number of paleo folks who have a background in DnD...

Personally I enjoy these 'let's guess' threads much more than the actual reveal - both because they allow us to be a bit silly - and because they let our devs see just how excited we really are to even think about 'something new from their imagination' - take it for what it's worth, if your past work gets people excited at just the *possibilities* - yeah that's kind of awesome!

Precisely!


Given that today is just 3 days shy of the 8th anniversary of the Pathfinder RPG being announced, it's obvious that this announcement will be a new game system.

Don't ask me how I made that leap.

Today, Paizo announces Pathfinder, The Toaster(tm), the newest way to bring the excitement of Pathfinder and the giddy flames of goblin kind to a breakfast near you. With exciting toast burn configurations such as "Ezren's Chin", "Griddle of Opposite Germination", and "Runetoast", breakfast will never be boring again!

Well ok I am really excited about this :) The AP I most wanted to see make a hardcover even!

Although I still would love to see another GM specific book! (/poke!)

Cool, if only I could afford those hardcover AP books.

Thanks, that one was really taking up waaaaay too much space inside me.

Wow. Now I hope that Ulisses Spiele (german publisher) translates that as well. Already got the Rise of the Runelords HC in german.


Ah. That's it!

So is this a confirmation that in the upcoming years, all the of the 3.5 AP might get a Pathfinder hardcover version?

It's no confirmation, but it is an indication that if the conditions remain the same/grow to be the same as this, they will do so at the right time for them.

Contributor

Considering the Deluxe Collector's Edition of Runelords is still available, my hope that there will be a similar version for CotCT is pretty low. Here's hoping I'm wrong!

There are only four 3.5 APs. So, I´d guess that the remaining two might be converted at some point as well, with one already done and the second one on its way.

Furthermore, a Pathfinder 2.0 seems quite unlikely now, with updating this AP to the PF rules (If this is indeed the case - not clear from the pic). Updating old stuff and then making it somewhat obsolete shortly thereafter would be a stupid move.

Nope.


Pathfinder Companion, Maps Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I take as a confirmation that as more AP's go out of print or mostly out of print we will see the same treatment, when they have right spot in the schedule.

I am both not surprised and glad to see this announced!!
