Pathfinder

Pathfinder is a tabletop RPG published by Paizo Publishing in 2009. The RPG is a modified version of the 3.5 edition of Dungeons & Dragons under the Open Game License and is intended to be backward-compatible with that edition of D&D. The game was announced in March 2008 after Wizards of the Coast switched over to D&D 4E.

Pathfinder was designed over the course of a year using an open playtest model where players could try the system and send their feedback directly to Paizo.

Paizo announced a second edition of Pathfinder in 2018, which will have an open playtest much like the first edition.
