Converting Iron Gods to Pathfinder is a labor of love, and I’m glad that there are other excellent blogs out there doing the same work I’m doing.
Dungeonmusings is doing some nice conversions of races and classes. I’m using his android and gunslinger conversions, and they’re great.
The Lazy Dungeon Master is a beautiful blog with a lot of after-action write-ups. The conversions are a little more Warhammer 40k than I’m going, but there’s a lot of great stuff.
Daemons and Deathrays has moved on from the sci-fi conversions, but there is some really great stuff in the archives. I especially like the bear-people race.
Paizo has been pretty clear about their desire not to produce material for 5th Edition, and I have great respect for that. With that in mind, whenever I’ve changed something proprietary of theirs (like a named race), I’ve changed the name. This isn’t about owning it myself, since I don’t think that I could publish 5th Edition content for money, right now, even if I wanted to. It’s all about respecting what I think are the wishes of the people who own the games I love.
With that in mind, the
kasatha thrake race: four-armed desert dwelling nomads from a far-off world that is in no way the Mars of Edgar Rice Burroughs. (No one is clear on how it’s pronounced. Is it “thrak” with a long “a”? Is it with a short “a” and a short “e”? Is the “e” silent? No idea. I’m inclined towards the first, so that it sounds like a stone hitting a wall. Like “thwack.” Invent your own fun pronunciations!)
