So I think we can all agree that the Pathfinder name, for all of its merits, is kind of terrible when it comes to being easily searchable and identifiable. 'Pathfinder' is a really generic term and is more associated with Nissan than Paizo! Plus it's used in dozens of different things as well which means Pathfinder game stuff on social media is harder to find than it should be..

Of course over the past ten years its built up a good reputation and a fair bit of brand recognition among RPG gamers. But if Paizo wishes to be bold then why not change the name entirely?

Instead of calling it Pathfinder Second Edition, why not call it... AdventureSeeker or something?

I'm pretty sure that they're not going to remove the value of pathfinder's name in the world of tabletop games, also they'd have to pay for another trademark

Then, they can switch it back to Pathfinder Classic!

I would rename the game "Jonathan".

That's sexist. Emily is better. (Just kidding)

It should clearly be Track-encounterer.

When in doubt, always name something Bob. Bob is everything.

I think the trick is to make it use the same words. Finder Path.

Too long, we should shorten it to Kate.

Horrible suggestion. Pathfinder is an excellent name and has quickly become its own icon over the past decade.

To do that they'd need to call it New Pathfinder, have it bomb critically and have market share evaporate in a dangerous fashion, then bring it back as you say.

But actually, y'know, not bring it back but bring back Pathfinder Classic using the mechanics discovered in New Pathfinder 'just like we used to remember it'.


We need to appeal to a younger audience, so we should give it a more t00bular name: Pathfinder XTREME!

Maybe a shortened, comedic version of pathfinder, without all the bloat and nonsense that spawned here and there. Pathfinder Abridged.

You're on the right track, but I prefer 2 Path 2 Furious. It doesn't really form a proper phrase, but it sounds right.

...Or it could be "Valorous" and the first blog post for the announcement could have Valeros, the iconic fighter, with a can of paint in hand turning the first "o" into an "e" and crossing out the "u."
