I know that Pathfinder is probably not a popular game in this corner of Blogaria.
My friend Josh, who is in the Sunday group and the Traveller group and the mostly defunct Hackmaster group and just about everything I've run for the past six years is into it.
My wife is into it. (Well, 3.5, but I think she'd be down for the Pathfinder train)
Her best friend, who is coming back for the summer, is into it. (Well, 3.5, just like the wife)
I can think of a few friends/gamers who are into it. (Yes, I associate with people who don't share my enthusiasm for yellowed old books with attack matrices and purple prose- the horror)
Point is: PF may have a certain inevitability in my future. Right now I'd rather play a PF game that runs than a game that doesn't, for instance.(Hack and Traveller are essentially done)
I will grant PF a few things mechanically, but for me the main draw is my ability to include people in gaming who are not currently included. It also reminds me of the good times I had with a previous gaming group that only played 3.5; I enjoyed the company and I enjoyed the campaign and characters, even if I did have some frustrations with the system. I'd also take any iteration of D&D 3.x over 4.0 any day of the week, but that horse is quite dead, so I shall say no more.
With the return of my wife's best friend, there exists the possibility of getting the band back together.
In the meantime, Traveller looks to be dead in the water. I really like the campaign we were developing, but honestly I just can't go back to Trav now that I've had Stars Without Number. (Which I am continuing with and am running this Sunday, in fact) Perhaps I will ask the group one more time to bring it back. Alternatives have been suggested as well, but nothing to which I am giving serious thought yet.
I still like old D&D better. Honest.
Now, if anybody needs me, I'm going to take my lightsaber and go find all those Jedi children...I have something I need to... tell them...
