    HM's Dragonlance game converted to Pathfinder - recruiting

    Ok the title pretty much tells the tale. recruiting

    I have been running the first module of the Dragonlance series (Started 1 year ago today ) in 2e mode. And while it was very nostalgic to dig out the old books it has been hard to remember the game play or get into the game after 9 years of 3e and 2 of Pathfinder.

    But the main reason I am thinking of a change is due to characters. As I look ahead I see I will need a lot of players if I don't wish to end up NPCing half the group as we play.

    So I am posting this to see if I were to change the rules system to Pathfinder would it draw the interest of more players to help me and add to the fun.

    Even if you don't wish to join into the game I will be keeping this thread open for conversions of characters (always fun), should the change take place. Please feel free to add comments post what you think one of the Heroes of the Lance would look like decked out in PF crunch.

    The second post I am leaving open to help show the PC's and who would need taken over and edit in those that find a player.

    Thanks for stopping in.

    Hi, found the thread

    Coming from years of 3+ D&D, it is hard to play a first level caster in 2e again. Either I use some of my very few spells or being totally useless in combat and standing around as liability. The latter also happens once I used the spells, but with also a penalty to everything...

    So changing it to Pathfinder would give some nice 'power-up' in options both in what to do in combat encounters and more utility spells.

    BTW, I have the 3.5 core Dragonlance Setting book.

    Do you really expect to reach modules nine and ten? I realize a couple of those aren't adventures. Still at an average of a year per module.....

    I hope so rangerjohn -

    Let's see you are right I have it that it might be around a year a module (older modules are smaller than their current brethren). So it brakes down to.

    Mod 1: 2011
    Mod 2: 2012
    Mod 3: 2013
    Mod 4: 2014

    Mod 6 & 10: 2015
    Mod 7 & 12: 2016
    Mod 8 & 13: 2017
    Mod 9 & ?*: 2018

    Mod 14 - Finale 2019

    Looks like I made a mistake there 9 is not the start of the trip through Lorac's nightmare that is Mod 10.

    * I think the second group may take longer as they have a lot of more ground to cover and less direction from NPCs unlike group one. So 10/12/13 should run till 2018.

    2018...you've got some initiative there. I mean don't you know the world ends in 2012. Please do NOT let that lead to a religious discussion.

    Also whens the earliest I get to break out Caramon in Pathfinder form?

    Probably a month or so. You have the crunch worked up? And if you want you could help me with a few others.

    If it is possible to know less than nothing about Dragonlance, I'm there. I know it is a campaign setting and a famous bunch of books, and that's it. I am however looking for more games, and would love to play whatever role needs filled.

    Excellent BH & Gondsman - I take you are both up for playing with the PF rules? And knowledge of the books/world is unnecessary we aren't following them and you can learn about the world as you go.

    ______________________________

    WD keep that book handy it may be of great reference to us in getting the characters converted. Speaking of which and while I have you here.

    What do you think of Raistlin having a lvl or two in sorcerer? I was thinking Destined Bloodline - It would play into his background where he could perform the Illusionists tricks just by watching them. And then be part of the fact that part of Fistandatilus's soul is inside him, and thus some unexplained magical power.

    I think it was the fluff in the bloodline that got me thinking. Within Reach At 15th lvl your ultimate destiny is drawing near. I could see Raistlin as a Wizard15/Sorcerer15 right before entering the gate to the Abyss.

    Just food for thought.
