Pathfinder

Grab a sword and get to work.When Wizards of the Coast moved Dungeons & Dragons to a new edition and a more tightly-controlled gaming license in 2008, it created a divide in the role-playing industry. While many got on board with 4th edition D&D, others thought that 3rd edition still had some life to it and could last for a while longer with some love and care. The result is Pathfinder, a game from Paizo Publishing that revised and streamlined 3rd edition D&D without negating backwards compatibility.

The material here is usable for the Pathfinder Role-Playing Game or for those sticking to 3rd edition D&D. Pathfinder is still a game about epic fantasy, where wizards battle dragons, warriors wield magic swords, and so on. It just has a different name now.
