I hope it's not turn-based, is party-based, and is on PoE's engine

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

I hope it is turn-based, is party-based, and is on PoE's engine.  I'll be fine with RTwP, though.

 

Pretty exciting news!

It's basically DnD rules wise since it's based on the DnD d20 system. I know nothing about the actual setting because I try not to pay attention to rip offs.

 

\That said, this could be interesting.

AFAIK they can't use the D20 system rules as its prohibited in the Open Gaming License; so the game would have to have its own rule system (presuming that they couldn't also license the D20 rules independent of the Pathfinder setting but that seems like a lot of rules...)

as others have mentioned, pathfinder Rules is effectively d&d 3.5.2. we like pathfinder settings, but their boards has become much like d&d boards in that a majority o' posts is dealing with rules debates and build optimizations. for many people, pathfinder is the rules far more than it is the setting. am curious how the paizo folks will satisfy their fans, fans who arguably equal or outnumber d&d fans, if a so-called pathfinder game would be using rules other than d20. 

 

Gromnir, on the other hand, would be quite curious 'bout a pathfinder setting game using a variation on the rules obsidian has developed for PoE.

 

aside: we hope obsidian/paizo don't go the toee route and use existing pathfinder modules. many o' the pathfinder adventure paths is fantastic, but the last thing we wanna do is play a crpg version o' a module we already know.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Yeah, part of me is wondering if this is going to be the telling of Rise of the Runelords in video game format. I'm not saying that wouldn't be cool, but I think I would prefer an original story. 10 gold says it is set in Varisia though.

Hope they atleast host the official forums here rather than at Paizo.

If it has ToEE gameplay mixed with Obsidian's story telling, then I'm sold. :D

 

That's about the only way I might get more interested in this than "Oh well, we'll see what comes out of it".

we thought rise o' the runelords were a fantastic adventure path, but we know those modules very well. we know what is around every corner. we know every gotcha moment. we know every plot twist. we know where is traps and hidden treasures and the answers to puzzles.

 

there were an old star trek tng episode where in data and jordie(sp?) go onto holo-deck so that data can solve a sherlock holmes mystery, or somesuch. ten seconds after starting the "adventure," data solves the crime. no surprise there 'cause data knew all the sherlock holmes stories-- he didn't need puzzle-out the whodunit. jordie observed that it were kinda pointless to have data solve a sherlock holmes mystery if the android already knew the solutions to all those mysteries.

 

am guessing that the troika developers were on the star wars end o' the star wars v. star trek continuum o' geekdom, otherwise they woulda' known what a dead end recreating a known module were leading to. 'course the fact that toee were not a particular impressive adventure to begin with and troika added almost nothing to the bare bones o' the printed module did not help troika's efforts.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Pretty exciting news!

 

It would make sense to use the PoE engine, rather than building a new system from scratch. But I have to wonder about how Pathfinder players would feel about that. The name brings with it certain expectations.

what kind of expectations? is there a Pathfinder game already?

Being built on Unity, PoE is extremely compartmentalized obviously. To go from PoE rules to Pathfinder would require very little effort, not rewriting the whole engine.
