Legacy of Fire

Over at Tales from the Rusty Dragon, Scott Betts has being doing excellent work converting Paizo's Rise of the Runelords adventure path to the Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition ruleset. Unfortunately for myself, the campaign that my players are interested in having me run is the Legacy of Fire that they are currently part way through publishing. With "Rusty Dragon" having started work on the third of six books in the Rise of the Runelords campaign and with their being at least a couple of other campaigns before the Legacy of Fire, chances are that time will come for my group to play the campaign before Scott has a chance to start converting.

As such, I figured that I would have to set myself to the task for this particular Pathfinder conversion (along with the probable drop in quality that might entail) and I opted to launch this blog in order that others may learn from my mistakes. ;)

As with Tales from the Rusty Dragon this blog is not intended to serve as a replacement for Paizo's extremely well crafted adventure path, but rather as an aid to other DMs who find the 4th Edition rules a more pleasing fit while occupying the DM chair.


  1. Yeah, that is the unfortunate reality of the situation. Much as I'd like to have the time to create and playtest conversions for all 3.5 adventure paths, it's time consuming and can't move faster than the pace of the playtest game.

    I've often toyed with the idea of beginning a large, community-based project to create these conversions and publish them in a consistent, free digital format for others to use. That's a far-off goal, however, and not one I'm convinced can ever be fully realized. In the meantime, these individual blog projects seem to be working alright.

  2. A community-based conversion "think tank" sounds like a cool idea, but I agree it'd probably one hell of a task to set up. Maybe if I ever luck into enough money that I can give up the day job...
