Savage Pathfinder Pathfinder for Savage Worlds Is Live!

The Kickstarter for Pathfinder for Savage Worlds is live! It includes two boxed sets -- the Rise of the Runelords adventure path and a core rules boxed set which includes the Savage Pathfinder core book, a bestiary, and a ton of additional material.


The big question -- how do they do classes? -- is answered. Classes are replicated via Edge trees; one for each traditional Pathfinder class.

Two of the designers -- Chris Warner and Mike Barbeau -- appeared on our podcast last week to talk all about it.


You can grab it digitally for $25, the core rules hardcover is $50, the core boxed set is $200, and both boxed sets together comes to $300.

I'm curious what will be next. PEG has pulled off getting two IP's from other companies nobody saw coming (Rifts and now Pathfinder) so now I am speculating on a third IP that seems out of reach. Dresden Files? Shadowrun? Star Wars?

I wish I could back at $300. The completionist in me wants it all. And with the other Kickstarters I've already backed, this one will have to stay in the wishful thinking stack. Sucks being on Disability.

Two of those are licensed IP, so I would greatly doubt anything like that. But Shadowrun has ‘previous’ as there have been light versions before.

And there was / is an official Earthdawn for Savage Worlds but I understand that it wasn’t as successful. It wasn’t done by Pinnacle, however. That was done by FASA.

6 years ago I would have been interested. The Savage Worlds boat has sailed for me. That certainly opens up the possibility of dividing their fan base. I'm guessing that those who wanted a simpler PF2 "à la 5e" might by tempted to try out SWPF, abandoning either PF1 or PF2.

I'm wondering when they will do Pathfinder for GURPS, Pathfinder HERO System, Pathfinder W.I.O.I.N. 🙃 :p

Just looking at how many of each pledge is made, I am reminded of how much of the financial burden for RPGs Game Masters carry. I guess maybe some group spread the cost around, but I have never seen it besides the occasional GM Day gift or whatever. I am probably going to get the Digital Runelord reward so I can maybe run it next year but I guarantee few if any potential players would buy even the core book in PDF.

Ow, my soul.

I just bought $250USD worth of props for my upcoming campaigns.

Just curious why "the Savage Worlds boat has sailed" for you?

I know this is in jest, but I don't think it's likely there will be any other ports* of Pathfinder to other systems, mainly because my understanding is Pinnacle reached out to Paizo for this conversion, not the other way around.

*Kingmaker notwithstanding, as that's just a conversion of similar system stat blocks, not an unrelated system converting the whole ruleset.

Shane Hensley was recently interviewed on Know Direction. He verified that this is a licensed project that's limited to just Pathfinder First Edition material. All design work is internal. There are no Paizo staff involved in the design process.
In some regards this mash-up is not terribly surprising at all. Both Savage Worlds and 3e D&D came on the scene at around the same time and share a lot of similar game design values despite their differences. Keith Baker even said, for example, that Savage Worlds was probably one of the more appropriate non-D&D systems for playing his original conception of Eberron, which itself was written to be an expression of 3e D&D writ large.

...re-reading the previews and wondering why the bard iconic has taken Taunt skill when Sharp Tongued allows the character to use Performance instead of Taunt in any test?

This is the answer ↓
Because it hadn't been caught in editing yet? (The previews are not final)

Shane accidentally scrolled to the Bard while showing off the Barbarian; it wasn't quite ready for prime time yet. That Taunt d8 is a Fighting d8 at the moment.
