First off, the adventure path Rise of the Runelords is widely regarded as one of the better overall D20-based adventure series, it fits a niche in 3PP for D&D (or Pathfinder in this case) that is reserved for classics in D&D like Against the Giants and Tomb of Horrors.
Second, this project is codifying a well defined focused fantasy ruleset that lets you do very specific Pathfinder/D&D style fantasy in Savage Worlds. The flavor of these systems over the years have been a key reason I stick with them for my own game worlds; they fit the specific epic fantasy style I need for the sorts of worlds I like to run stuff for.
Now, having said that, thematically merging the style of epic Pathfinder gaming with the Fast! Furious! Fun! mechanical rulset of Savage Worlds is something every Savage Worlds gamer has tried to do over the years, and we have all noticed just how good that fit is. The problem, of course, is evident in the countless fan made modules and 3PP supplements trying to offer up content to support really good fantasy gaming in a D&D style with a Savage Words ruleset.....lots of it, but nothing necessarily all encompassing or cohesive enough to rival the sort of direct support Paizo and WotC provide for their systems.
With this Kickstarter, it looks like at long last there will be a version of Pathfinder that would let me definitively use Savage Worlds to run the fantasy worlds I normally lean on Pathfinder (or D&D) for. This is a huge deal, seriously....Savage Worlds is a much faster and more efficient game system than either D&D or PF, and it's a system that can accomplish this sort of gaming but without the mechanical baggage that the D20 systems come with.
So yeah...color me excited, and I'm in at the $300 level! This is going to be great.
