Just a short note from my side, when I returned from my vacation – it was a pleasure to find on the paizo RSS feed the release note of Pathfinder Beta – as you might have noticed already I’m quite fond of the system and recommend it in case you’re not completely satisfied with 3.5 or already tired of 4.0 of Dungeons & Dragons.
Additionally they have reworked and created much more content than they could fit into the >400pages book and have already released the first Web Enhancement – expanding and fixing a few issues with spells and magic items in the past. I’ll try to screen, scan and read the stuff in the coming days and post a more extensive review here.
Bonefinder over at the bone scroll posted a nice little update (for me) on the supposed or expected shipping date of Pathfinder beta. Honestly – I hardly can wait to hold the book in my hands. I’ve preordered it at Planetharry – the dealer of my choice – in Vienna. As Bonefinder reports, it’s quite likely that we find a few old skills and other typos from paste & copy errors that they made when integrating the SRD into this document. On the other hands, it’s a beta version and the game-system itself was very promising so far, it does hold a few expectations of mine for the future.
And yes, it’s really one of the hottest topics for me, so I had to dedicate that article to it. I hope a lot of you feel the same way and – will enjoy the Pathfinder beta when it’s out. (I hope the PDF version goes online soon – since shipping to Austria will take until beginning of September I fear.)
