Pathfinder. It’s one of the most popular RPGs out there. Savage Worlds, it’s one of the most popular RPG systems out there. Next year, you’ll get these two great tastes tasting great together as Pinnacle Entertainment Group and Paizo have announced that they’re creating Pathfinder for the Savage Worlds system.
From the release:
Pinnacle Entertainment Group, creators of Savage Worlds™ and Deadlands™ tabletop roleplaying games, and Paizo, creators of Pathfinder® roleplaying game announced Pathfinder for Savage Worlds in a surprise revelation Thanksgiving Day.Fans of both games responded globally to the information with enthusiastic comments on social media, forums, and news sites. As user “Doctor Futurity” said on ENworld’s Comments:
“As a fan of Pathfinder and Savage Worlds this feels like a peanut butter and chocolate moment.”
Paizo President Jeff Alvarez said, “We are thrilled to be partnered with Shane and his amazing team at Pinnacle on this project. I remember when Shane approached us about the partnership over a year ago and to see that we are just a few short weeks away from their Kickstarter is really exciting.”
Shane Hensley of Pinnacle responded: “I’ve loved Pathfinder’s Adventure Paths forever, so we’re beyond thrilled our friends at Paizo are letting us share their amazing tales with our Savage Worlds audience.”
The Pathfinder for Savage Worlds core rulebook will include an adaptation of the Savage Worlds game mechanics for players to make and evolve characters, and for game masters to create games of their own design, for play in Pathfinder’s world of Golarion. A separate purchase of the Savage Worlds core rules (SWADE) is not necessary to play.
The Pathfinder for Savage Worlds boxed set—as typical for Pinnacle Entertainment Group—will include the core rulebook as well as other elements of game play for Savage Worlds like Bennies, Action Deck, Templates, Game Master Screen with adventure, Powers Cards, and more.
For the Kickstarter planned to launch in January 2021, a Boxed Set for Rise of the Runelords with all six books of the Adventure Path provides starting adventures for many gaming groups who have not yet visited the town of Sandpoint.
Retail release of all items created in the Kickstarter is targeted for Q4 2021
