So I Recently Joined a Pathfinder RPG Campaign
If we look back at my very first post, it was my goal in starting this blog to help me rediscover my inner geek, and regain many of those lost interest of yesteryear. In fact, what I have discovered is my interest now have evolved and matured. So rather than attempting to go back and recapture some long lost part of myself, I am now finding that Im building a whole new base of nerdy interest… remember I am the “MisguidedGeek”.
Anyway, I recently had an opportunity to join in on a Pathfinder game at one of the great finds in Greensboro, a little coffee shop/movie theater/nerd den called Geeksboro (dont worry a write up is forth coming). I have loved video game RPG’s all my life, everything from your classic turn based (Chrono Trigger, FF tactics, FF VII) to the more modern first person RPGs (Fallout 3, Skyrim), so I am super pumped to get into the world of table top RPG games!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Pathfinder, it is essentially a modified and extended version of the third edition of Dungeons and Dragons. From my limited understanding of the game’s development the fine people over at Paizo took was was good about D&D 3 and made it better, while streamlining some of the game play, in essence making it a more fun, intuitive game to play.
Thus far, the only thing I have done is create my character (Human, Ranger FTW), and buy a set of polyhedral die (in the MG color set) but I plan on chronicling my experience through this first, of hopefully many, such campaigns. Since we meet every other Sunday, this will be the first in a series of bi-weekly post. Im excited to play, and I think this is a step in the right direction in upping my Geek cred. If you have any experience with Pathfinder or any other table top RPG that you would like to share with a n00b, leave a note in the comments.
