P2 to 5E Professional Conversion Opportunity


Product Discussion


I'm developing a P2 project under my own publishing company and am looking for someone with previous experience adapting P2 stats to 5E. This includes new classes and races and is expected to be a complex project. Referrals welcome.

Thanks, -AA

Are you making a Pathfinder 2E product, or a 5E product, or a product that uses both systems?

Your original statement would indicate that you're looking to make a PF2 product, but then you say you're looking for someone who can do a 5E conversion. Assuming you mean that you want to convert PF2 into 5E, that might be a bit of confusion and why you're not getting replies.

Can you provide links to your previously produced material, or an overview of what your publishing company has done for Pathfinder or 5E materials in the past? An idea about what the product you're currently working on entails? What your pay rate will be?

All of those might help potential freelancers see what you've been able to make so far, and whether or not they're interested in joining up on your project.

I hope this helps!


Thanks for the feedback, Jemstone. I'm not ready to announce all the details yet, but it's a new publishing company and a large product designed for P2 but in need of a 5E version prior to release. It will publish in both systems. Pay is negotiable and expected to be in line with professional standards and rates.

If you or someone you know have done rate conversions and are interested, please reach out to discuss the details. Thanks! -AA

I'm happy to help! Even though I took about a ten-year long break from freelancing, I've been doing it since the early 1990's in one form or another, so I can tell you what people need to see when they're looking at project announcements and the like.

You may run into some interesting issues when attempting to deal with Ancestries between 5E and PF2. The 5E system maintains the "Laundry List" method of Ancestry/Race creation, where everything that makes them unique is presented during character creation. PF2's Heritage/Ancestry system provides much greater variation during creation and play (and honestly, I prefer it), so make sure that the methods by which you're crafting such things take that into account. It'll save you a lot of headaches. :)

Good luck! I hope you knock it out of the park!
