    Query re fan-created Pathfinder 1e adaptations for Greyhawk

    Hi folks.

    I'm recently returning to the hobby of the imagination and wonder if any of us created Pathfinder 1e adaptations for Greyhawk—something analogous to Joseph Bloch's recent series of D&D 5e adaptations. See Greyhawk Grognard, Free Resources, http://www.greyhawkgrognard.com/free-resources/.

    If not, would any of us be interested in collaborating to do so?

    Marc---

    Casey Brown published some summaries of LG-era Bandit Kingdoms scenarios and also some PF adventures; see https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/8429/Casey-Brown

    Of course, we also have three 3.5e adventures published in the Canonfire! Chronicles, which could easily be converted to Pathfinder, or simply used 'as is' in a Pathfinder campaign. ;)

    Thanks Allan and SirXaris!

    grodog, I read the review of BDKR1: The Unofficial Living Greyhawk Bandit Kingdoms Summary. What's your view of it? Would you recommend acquiring the print version?

    SirXaris, the Canonfire! Chronicles looks beautiful. Were additional issues ever published?

    I like to read most things in print, so I'm biased toward that format. I like the content, and also have a soft spot for the BK in general (the Rift Canyon has held my eye for many a year!). The book's well put together, with a nice cream-colored paper of good paper stock (it's on Lulu now, so that may not be the case any longer---my version was printed by Create Space), well-written, and well-edited. Casey does a wonderful job summarizing the adventures, commenting on the player actions and giving behind-the-scenes commentary from his Triad-level vantage point. Well-worth picking up if you're planning a trip to Stoink or its sister cities.

    I only have the first issue, which is the only one I'm aware of.

    Allan.

    Thank you for that, Allan! I always appreciate seeing that short line in any review of products I have edited. Wink Cool

    Unfortunately, we only ever produced that single edition of the Canonfire! Chronicles. It would be great if someone could spearhead a revivification of that fanzine as Icarus has done for its sister publication, the Oerth Journal.

    Just noticed this thread and I'd put forward that all of Casey's Living Greyhawk modules that he's Pathfinderized and published are worth checking out—in particular because he leans so hard into Pathfinder mechanics (like settlement stat blocks or value of monster parts) that rarely get any daylight in published modules.

    The two featuring the red dragon are probably the best, but the low-level Rookroost stuff is also very good. (I am curious to see where the series goes.)

    As befits their convention roots, they are all more linear than, for instance, a Grodog Castle Greyhawk adventure but he always leaves a lot of flexibility around the mission at hand for player creativity.

    As the editor of all of these modules by Casey Brown (Aurdraco), my biased opinion is in full support of the above recommendation. Cool

    Thanks for endorsing these adventures. Even though Allan mentioned them in his initial response, when I looked at Casey's DriveThruRPG page, I focused on BDKR1 and overlooked the adventures, which intrigue me because I missed almost all of the LGH modules (not having enjoyed the few that I played in the Pale), and I'm glad that a few have seen the light of day.

    Hopefully others will republish the best of theirs too.

    Note that "A Little Trouble" found in The Canonfire! Chronicles was authored by Adam Thomas, who authored several LG adventures while it was running. "A Little Trouble was scheduled to be released for LG, but WotC shut it all down before that happened. So, you can find at least one other LG adventure published, though I don't recall which area it was from (Geoff, Sterich, or the Yeomanry, probably Wink ).
