    PF1E Looking for ideas - the "Mad Architect"

    As is often the case when I start planning out adventures, I am finding that planning too far in advance turns out to be a waste. I was planning on having the players explore a ruined temple on their way to other cities for other reasons. I pictured a temple that fell during the Godswar...

    3E/3.5 (Coming from 3.5) Are casters still the most powerful in PF?

    I don't think it's matter or "letting". I think it's a matter of the way the mechanic works. Spells are design so their use is more limited, but characters are much more free to add new spells as they progress. This makes the task of the DM playing "goalie" a bit more daunting. But certainly...

    3E/3.5 (Coming from 3.5) Are casters still the most powerful in PF?

    In PF, martial characters are veritable damage machines. Further, many of the "niche stealing" effects have been removed, and many of the all-too-convenient spells that wormed around the weaknesses of casters in 3.5 are not present in PF (e.g., no spell resistance conjuration effects that are...

    4E Poll about your interest in 4e

    Never bought any books, never played (did watch a few games, that's about it). Very early on, I could tell they were actively scuttling things about the game that I find to be essential for D&D.

    Swashbuckling in Freeport! (Adventure Help)

    So anyone a Freeport fan here? 7th Sea/Swashbuckling Adventure Fans could help, too. Or anyone with a good eye for a plot. I'm porting the Swashbuckling Adventure adventure "Four and Twenty Blackbirds" to Freeport (I'm using Fantasy Craft, but that's really not important here.) The adventure is...

    4E 4E Dislike - a hypothesis

    Mark me down as a data point against your Hypothesis. I started with 1e and the basic set. I moved forward to every edition TSR/WotC offered prior to 4th. Prior to 4th, each edition seemed like a new edition. 4e, to me, seemed like a different game.

    Adamant's Tome of Secrets: How has it aged?

    Adamant's Tome of Secrets has been out for a year now. Some of you may have been using it. Some of you may have even looked at similar classes in the new APG (Knight/Cavalier, frex). Some of you might have even played some of this material alongside each other. Any impressions on how Adamant's...

    4E Sell a 4E DM on Gamemastery Guide

    Honestly, it's a very good book, but I think it has less to offer an experienced GM with a collection of DMG editions and lots of experience under his belt than it does a new GM.

    PM: Off the Edge of the Map (Fantasy Craft) (OPEN SPOTS!)

    Inhabitants of the Sword Isles are no strangers to seafaring. But the crew and passengers of the Emerald Crown are about to set sail via the most unusual venue, for the River or Worlds is no mere sea that the Sword Islanders know. It is the primordial ocean from which the gods themselves drew...

    PF1E SAT AM - The Pathfinder Experiment (Pathfinder RPG)

    The Pathfinder RPG is Paizo's derivative of the 3.5 rules, with one stated goal being compatibility. But how well does it play, and how compatible is it really? This is the question I am trying to answer in The Pathfinder Experiment. For this game, I will select an adventure published for the...
