I'm surprised I forgot to talk about this yesterday.
On Sunday I played my first game of Pathfinder with my friends (and fellow shameless nerds) Scott and Brian. It's one thing to look at a roleplaying game's book and nerd out over the rules and concepts, but it's an entirely different matter to play the game itself. Sunday's game was a test run for this book that I've been ranting about for weeks now.
My fellow shameless nerds, I am happy to say that Pathfinder's streamlining of the D&D 3.5 rules is both efficient and lots of fun. That, and I finally got to play a half-orc bard that doesn't suck.
So yes. Pathfinder officially rocks my nerdy socks off. I highly recommend it if you're an old-school tabletop roleplaying gamer like me.
That's all from me for now.
Rock on and nerd out.
