Anybody currently playing Pathfinder? If you played 3.5, it's very similar. Basically, it was written by a bunch of folks who didn't want to see the 3.5 D&D system end up in the trash heap after 4th edition was released. They've tweaked it and introduced a new campaign setting. There's also an organized play system called Pathfinder Society.

More info here.

The thing I like about Paizo, the publisher of Pathfinder, is that you can pay about 20% of the cover price and get a PDF version of the book. Compared to the fixed $25 and up prices on the Wizards of the Coast materials, a $10 PDF of the core rulebook (over 500 pages, BTW) is much more in my price range.

Yeah, I've been playing Pathfinder for about a year and a half now.  It's pretty cool, much better than 4th ed.

Wow! You're way ahead of me. I just got back into RPGs, so I started with 4e, and now I'm getting more and more into Pathfinder. It reminds me more of the old Classic and 1e D&D that I played in Jr. High School.

What campaigns have you played?

I make up my own adventures.  I've been GMing for about 20 years now so I'm pretty good at ad-libing. 

 

My friends have started getting into the new rule books that have been coming out, Ultimate Magic and Ultimate Combat and stuff.  It's pretty cool some of the new classes.

I recently picked up Ultimate Magic, because I'm playing a cleric of Iomedae and I needed some background info. The Gods and Magic (of Golarion) is pretty neat too. I'll pick up Ultimate Combat eventually, because I'm also playing a rogue in Society play.
