    Taking a look at the Recruiting Office these past few weeks, I have noticed a disproportionate number of D&D 3.5 games as opposed to Pathfinder, or as it is affectionately called by its players, D&D 3.75. As the reason for this may be as simple as a lack of familiarity with the Pathfinder rules by current D&D 3.5 players, I have compiled this guide to clarify the improvements that Pathfinder offers over the 3.5 ruleset.

I decided to start using both programs together; OpenRPG for the main game, and Maptool for the map. As time passed I was asked why I didn't simply use Maptool exclusively. My answer was simple; I enjoyed having each monsters macros in an easily accessible chart, where I could pull up one monster at a time but they were all there ready and waiting for me. This is when I was introduced to the idea of token-macros in Maptool.
