Hey all

I'm looking to start my first real attempt at GMing Pathfinder (1ed) and to that end, I'm looking at the Lands of Porphyra setting. It sounds interesting but I was wondering if anyone has experience with it, and if so, what are the setting's positive and negative aspects.

www.drivethrurpg.com/product/156162/Lands-of-Porphyra-Campaign-Setting-PFRPG

I know its obvious appeal is how, due to its set-up, it allows for a lot of different genres, but is there much else to say about it?

Thanks all.

EDIT: A little confused now, because, there is another version:

So, the Porphyra Campaign setting is PF1 and Porphyra the Rpg is PF2?

Sorry, I'm new to the whole PF product line.

Porphyra seems to want to be PF 1.75 from what I've read in reviews about it.

Which makes me wonder why? Like was PF 1 just too limiting for it?

They did have one product which was too "adult" for the compatibility licence, but I think the main reason was they were tinkering with the system and once PF2 was announced (with fairly major changes) they decided to publish their own version of PF1.

It's a bit like Paizo did when they came up with PF1 in the first place.

Porphyra has a ton of sourcebooks set there so Paladins of Porphyra, etc so lots of mechanical options that fit the flavor of the world. It has a neat cosmology with a decently fleshed out set of pantheons (demon lords, gods, etc.) and a number of nonstandard races and such situated in the world.

If you like Pathfinder and want lots of nonstandard content it is a good option.
