    Default 3.5/Pathfinder differences

    Hey

    I was wondering, without going into too much detail so as to avoid thread and legal issues, just what are the differences between p[athfinder and 3.5? I know thay streamlined some skills, combining several into one, and they balanced the classes a bit, but aside from that, are there any big rule changes? what about spells, and casting in general, did they do some big changes there?

    How easy is it to take a PrC from, say, one of the completes, and apply it to a pathfinder base class? What about races?

    Thanks

    Legal issues? 3.5 D&D SRD and Pathfinder Reference Document are both free.

    Saph hasn't posted anything about it yet, so you might want to mosey over to www.pathfindersrd.com and look at some of the advanced playtest stuff. There are a few new classes that cover some of the roles met by non-core D&D classes with a different flavor.
