Pathfinder APs in Mystara?

Weird red metals, dominions, immortals, hollow planets, invisible moons, and a lot of glorified magic zeppelins. It's all here.

Pathfinder APs in Mystara?

Post by agathokles » Fri Aug 16, 2019 8:24 am

In the Greyhawk forum, Big Mac asked if it was possibly/easy to port the Pathfinder adventure paths (other than the D&D ones set in Greyhawk) to that setting. There are a number of reasons why this is reasonable at least to some extent -- Golarion, the default setting of Pathfinder and therefore of the APs -- is in part inspired by the early D&D settings (it even goes as far as containing a pseudo-Blackmoor region), although arguably more to Greyhawk than to Mystara (e.g., the focus on devils).

Cthulhudrew responded with an impressive list of APs divided by porting difficulty, commenting on the main issues and possible locales. It would be interesting to have a similar list for Mystara :-)

While making the 1mile hex map of Karameikos.
I already use the locations of some Pathfinder??(not really sure) material located in Karameikos.

I have played a port of Savage Tide to a 3.5 Merry Pirates setting of Mystara. It did mean we were going more with a 3.5 outer planes setup than a BECMI setup, but we are using conversions of the Immortals to worship not 3.X deities.

I know someone suggested using Rise of the Runelords for Mystara (Maybe Norwold?) when it came out.

I'll have some more detailed responses of my own ideas later, but one that immediately comes to mind is using Kingmaker on the Isle of Dawn. The kingdom building and warfare aspect fits with the existing themes of the setting (as a dominion building region for PCs), and the fey aspects of certain parts lends itself well to existing regions like Redstone and the northern territories of the IoD.
