Pathfindery Extravaganza

John, Eric, Jeremy, and I played some Pathfinder last night. The other member(s) of our group were indisposed. We ran through the eighth scenario of this campaign arc, which was called Descent Into The Depths. Even without the Pathfinder shenanigans, I really liked the way the whole thing turned out. The scenario was pretty cool and it combined a dungeon with a dragon and some traps.

There were only four of us, and the session only really lasted five hours total I believe. It was pretty fun. The guys really enjoyed the trap thingy that I put in there, it was difficult but a nice change of pace from slugging it out with another group of faceless monsters. It was also pretty amusing to have the mutant dragon thing melt half of John's face off, and to watch the slime try and slime D'alton's shadow and then go through it and up a hill, only to slide back down the glassy smooth stone and try to do the same thing next round.

Everyone seemed to really enjoy the way Pathfinder played, and the fact that the fights didn't take like an hour or more each was pretty nice. Ultimately, I guess I don't have too much to say other than it went well and now the Glenwighta Fremwightan and the rebels of Hell are all hooked up and ready to cause some trouble.

I guess Pathfinder is 3.5 Edition, but a little bit better, and we all like 3.5 Edition, so it works.

There was a bit of a snag with the microphone, Audacity went wonky in the midst of recording and then it popped up with an error. It ended up closing itself down and I lost the second hour of recordings for that session. Oh well, we're about gaming, not fiddling with recorders and trying to get them to work. So, no downloadable version of the session.

Anyway, I had a lot of fun with the guys and it seems like they all love Pathfinder. In fact, they said they would like to switch to Pathfinder right this second, or for next scenario, or whatever you want to call it. So, Pathfinder wins without discussion apparently. Unless Fred suddenly decides he really likes 4th Edition, heh.
