Adventure Awaits!

An ancient and evil undead thing rises in a dark dungeon. A long-forgotten horror stirs in the dark forest. A hungry and vengeful dragon awakes in forgotten mountains. A cry for help echoes across the world of Golarion. Brave heroes —the Pathfinders— answer the call. They are crafty rogues, powerful sorcerers, and deadly fighters. They are humans, elves, dwarves, gnomes, and halflings. They are heroes!

Pathfinder for Savage Worlds combines the “Fast! Furious! Fun!” of the best-selling, award-winning Savage Worlds game system with the incredible depth and excitement of Paizo’s phenomenal Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the world of Golarion. Create your own adventures or play one of the legendary Adventure Paths, starting with Rise of the Runelords!

This book contains the Savage Worlds rules, specially tailored for the world of Golarion. All you need are dice, a deck of playing cards for initiative, and some excellent friends to share your adventures with!

I started my table top rpg experience with Pathfinder and then migrated to Savage Worlds for its flexibility and various settings. Savage Pathfinder is a welcome addition to my Savage Worlds collection. I have been running this setting for 4 sessions now and must say that it captures the Pathfinder/D&D feel and experience incredibly well.

I am new to Savage Worlds and have been waiting for news on an updated fantasy guide, but am now looking at this. Is a large portion of this essentially a rewrite of the basic rules? If so, how much new material is here? Is this the SWADE version?

Hi Craig, it is a rewrite of the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition rules, specifically for the Pathfinder setting. In this case we felt that was the best way to go (we don't do it for any other except Solomon Kane years ago). It adds the Class Edges, a few new Edges & Hindrances, spells, etc. If you want to play Savage Pathfinder, this is the book for you. If you want to create your own fantasy world, you might want to wait for the new version of the Fantasy Companion for the core game coming out later this year.

Cheers :)

Hi! Thanks for the response. My initial thought was to wait for the Companion, since I am torn between creating my own world and possibly using a slightly altered version of the Mystara setting from D&D, but I wasn't sure how long it would take for it to come out (IE this year or next).
Being new to SW, I am not too sure what to expect from the different books. I see that the Pathfinder rules include "classes" for lack of a better word. Will similar rules be included in the Companion as well? If I look at the contents of the previous Companion, will that give a good indication of what to expect, or will there be all new material?
Thanks again! I'll try not to hound you with too many questions!

Are there any conversion guidelines for GMs who want to bring in monsters or adventures from other Pathfinder books or will he or she have to do that mostly from scratch?
Customer avatar
Shane H December 21, 2021 4:11 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
We haven't published anything like that yet, but I think you'll see from the examples how easy most creatures are to convert. Of course stranger critters require a bit more work.

Thanks :)

a couple of things. For potions on page 213 it lists the costs for minor and major versions of the potions but doesn't explain what they do. At least not that I can find. I ran a search for the words "minor" then "major" and didn't see anything that gives detail. Also on page 207 available Potions item 17 lists Minor Healing with Greater. And that's it. At least in the edition I have. Could you enlighten me on these points?

Aha. Found the minor and major rules finally on page 205. Still don't know what the minor healing with greater is however.
Customer avatar
Hagai G December 25, 2021 3:24 pm UTC
It means minor Healing (success with no raise) but with the effect of Greater Healing Power Modifier.

Is this just the pathfinder setting with the savage worlds rules? Or is there any use of pathfinder rules peppered in? I kinda curious about this if It would allow for a slightly crunchier savage worlds game.

SW PF adds Class Edges, among other things, that make it feel like the world of Golarion... which inherently means some of the nature of its rules system as well. You can skim through the preview to get a better idea of what's inside. Cheers :)

On Pinnacle website mentions that there is update on all books, but here in DriveThruRPG both the Core and Bestiary have a date from June. Any news about the updated version?

Hello Shane, sorry, but is not true. The update date still says that it was on June. I redownload the file and it still doesn’t mention which arcane background has access to the Baleful Polymorph power (the last version corrected this, as I learned on PEGFORUM).
Unless there is bug on my account that doesn’t allow me download the updated version

The combination of the Pathfinder and Savage Worlds is a great idea! And the preview was very generous and played a part in why I’m considering adding this to my SW collection. However, I don’t like that in the description above you wrote “no other rulebook is necessary”. That’s is misleading. I figure what you’re saying is that you don’t need the Savage Worlds Rules. All the rules are in this core book. But it DOES SOUND like you’re saying you just need this Pathfinder for Savage Worlds core book alone to PLAY the game when any experienced gamer knows that an RPG system with a bestiary means the bestiary is required. An inexperienced buyer may not know this. You might want to consider rephrasing.
I’m a huge savage Worlds fan. This is a great idea. Going to get it - AND the Bestiary! Really looking forward to the hard covers!

I agree AND disagree. It’s perfectly possible play with just the Core, but the GM will have to make every NPC and monsters stats block. For those who wants to play a fantasy game and like to fight more NPCs than monsters it is perfectly fine. For those who wants a more classic fantasy game the bestiary is necessary.
Also, the official adventures (like Hollow’s Last Hope or the full Rise of the Runelord campaign) put the stats block of every creature in it, making the Bestiary completely optional.

Does this break away from level based advancement that Pathfinder and D&D use?
Customer avatar
July 10, 2021 1:29 pm UTC
That depends on what you mean. Savage Worlds does have advancement but they aren't levels as such. You're expected to gain an advance every session or so, and each advance grants you a bonus of some sort. There are also ranks, such as novice, veteran, etc. which are mostly ways of restricting higher power abilities. Nobody tracks experience, and Savage Worlds is definitely not a resource management game in the way D&D is. I play both, frequently, and enjoy both for very different reasons.

Purchased, very cool combination of Paizo's setting and the SWADE system. Conviction is an interesting addition to a SWADE game, curious to actually get a game in and see how it interacts with (and hopefully wont get confused for) bennies. One question though is if there is an ETA on the physical version of the game?

Thanks, Daniel :)

Check our KS page for an update on the print versions. We're about two months behind at the moment, I'd guess, but it might be more than that given the container problem from overseas most all manufacturers are having (plus any other hiccups that occur).

I’m a late backer who purchased it through Backerkit, but I feel 100% comfortable saying that Savage Pathfinder is EXCELLENT! I was “optimistically intrigued” as to how PEG was going to meld Savage Worlds with Pathfinder, especially the classes, and decided to dive in on the well-earned faith that both PEG and Paizo have garnered by creating incredible products with fantastic fan support.

This did not disappoint.

This book is dripping with high-fantasy goodness that really captures the Fast, Furious, Fun! of Savage Worlds in the Pathfinder world. If you’re a fan of Savage Worlds and crave fantasy widgets to hack into your current games, this has you well-covered. If you’re a fan of Pathfinder but maybe wish to explore in Golarion using a different game system, Savage Worlds Pathfinder is sure to help craft an exciting tale of high-fantasy adventure!

I didn't back this on Kickstarter because I was told that it didn't contain a bestiary. Is this still the case? Are other Savage Worlds bestiaries compatible? Thanks.

The core book contains a small bestiary...mostly the creatures players need for animal companions and the like. A separate Savage Pathfinder Bestiary is sold separately.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
