Back in the 1980s, I, like virtually every geeky, nerdy kid out there, discovered Dungeons and Dragons. I returned to it off and on over the years, but lost interest in papers and pencils gaming some time ago.
Then…Pathfinder came along.
While this game lacks a harlot encounter chart, it is, nevertheless, quite a good, solid system. I came to it a few years ago, playing in a Viking-themed campaign that a friend of mine ran. Then a couple years ago, I started up a short-lived Indian-themed campaign. Now I’m running a came set in a fantasy version of The Thirty Years War, because that’s a cheerful time in history.
If you’re a gamer who likes the old school-style of gaming, but with a few modern bibs and bobs added on, I do highly recommend this game. It’s very good, very fun, and a great way to spend time with friends!
