The Return of Pathfinder Sunday

Well after a long hiatus from regular gaming, believe it or not we are returning to Pathfinder.  I tried to get some sci fi gaming going but wasn't getting any takers, I tried to get some OSR gaming going but no takers, I ran a couple of sessions of C&C which was fun BUT something just wasn't meshing for us, then someone mentioned Pathfinder, and I agreed to run it again.  I've got players coming out of the woodwork! I'm actually having to turn down players at this point cause I've got so many at the table.  We had our first session today, I think it went pretty good all things considered. 
I'll keep ya'll posted on how it goes!
Good Gaming!


  1. Good Luck! Pathfinder is just too much for me to run. I have enough trouble running a character in some combats.

  2. SAROE I understand it is pretty involved, especially when compared to the Older Edition games that I grew up on. But it's what the players seem to want right now, so I'm going to give it the old college try. Having the Pathfinder SRD Online has been an awesome help!

  3. Today's game was excellent! And you know I'm down whenever you want to try a new game!

  4. I've been going through the same process...everyone's gaga for Pathfinder, so I've been running it for both my regular groups, and have soaring attendance as a result. If it helps any, Pathfinder has tried to include some relatively easy "on the fly" templates and other features that make the GM's life slightly I've yet to find a problem in combat that couldn't be solved with CMB/CMD. So long as you don't have a diehard rules lawyer in your group you can probably manage the game just fine. Even if you do have a rules lawyer, if he's on your side you'll do fine, too (that's the case with my group; my rules lawyer is the guy I look to when we run into those classic 3rd edition-style "odd rules moments." But he's not anal about it, which is very key)

  5. Thanks Flapjacks!
    Tori, good to hear I'm not the only one having this issue. We played again today, it was alot of fun, but I know I made some rules missteps, luckily my players are really cool. The Pathfinder CMD/CMB thing really streamlines some stuff. : )
