[Pathfinder & Other Tabletop RPGs] 1d6 Dragons Fall, Everyone Fries
So I've played my very first session of Pathfinder this week. As some of you may or may not know, Pathfinder's supposedly at it's core Dungeons & Dragons's 3.5 Edition but rebranded and tweaked. This comes from a company named Pazio who'd been making D&D-related stuff until 2008 when they decided they liked the 3.5 Edition too much to let it die to the 4th and created their own RPG world around 3.5's mechanics. I've never tried D&D myself so I can't very well judge how much better or worse Pathfinder is compared to it but I liked how my first session went so I plan to keep playing. Not seeing a thread for it or PnP (Pen & Paper) RPGs in general on SE++, (mainly because of the current super-basic state of the forum's search engine) I decided to pitch up my own and see if there's any other dice-geeks around here. You count if you've played one of the following:
Dungeons & Dragons: The top dog (?) and OG of the tabletop-RPG world. Currently heading towards it's fifth edition called D&D Next.
Shadowrun: Cyberpunk and magic colliding violently in a megacorp-run future, mainly in Seattle. Currently in it's fourth edition.
World Of Darkness: Redefining the term 'monster' in a present-day world where being a vampire or werewolf is just the bottom rung on the horror ladder. Currently running in a rebooted version of the original WoD that's shed it's 'end of the world is nigh' plot-hook.
Warhammer/Warhammer 40K: Originally and still going as a miniatures-based game, both the fantasy-based self and it's IN SPACE 40K version have PnP RPGs for those that want a little story in-between the miniatures' massive battles.
If I haven't mentioned a PnP you play, feel free to speak up about it. I do ask however that any talk about pre-made campaigns (called an Adventure Path in Pathfinder) are put in a spoiler box as there may be people like me who're playing through one of those.
