Time for another round of our ever-popular Friday discussion, where I throw out a topic and you respond. This week's topic is all about Pathfinder. Paizo’s “3.75” OGL continuation will be hitting the shelves at Gen Con. Now Paizo is well-regarded in terms of layout and art, and they have a goodly following from their Pathfinder line and Dragon Magazine days. Obviously, the playing field is a little different from them compared to Wizards of the Coast—what might be a disastrous sales level for WotC might be a raging success for Paizo.
This week's question(s): What are your predictions for the Pathfinder RPG? How will it do, relatively speaking? Will it still have a good following in a year? Can Paizo bump White Wolf off their 2nd-place pedestal? What can Paizo do to help encourage success for Pathfinder?
Be insightful, be snarky, be funny, be honest. Admit it's a wild-arse guess, or share your insider genius. However you do it, just discuss it, enjoy the cross-talk, and have a great weekend!
