    Default DFA Pathfinder conversion?

    Really the title says it all.

    Does anyone have a link to a good Pathfinder conversion of the DFA?

    Thanks

    Question Re: DFA Pathfinder conversion?

    The DFA? I know this isn't helpful at all, but could you please tell a playground noob what that is?

    Dragonfire Adept.

    As for conversion, DFA is pretty solid so bump up the HD, adjust the skills to match and you're probably okay.
    BEEP.

    I'm with Kylarra, porting T3 classes in is a cinch really.

    I might give them Fly as a class skill (from their dragon fetish and all) but that's the only change I'd make. Maybe an hd increase.

    DFA Would go to d10 HD, Adds Fly as a Skill, since it didn't exist in 3.5, and goes though the usual conversions...you COULD argue that they'd gain 1 or 2 extra skill points a level, but I wouldn't push it.

    With all the skill consolidations in Pathfinder they should be fine imo. On the other hand, dragons are pretty crafty.

    Well they do have flight as an invocation possibility, so fly definitely makes sense.
    BEEP.

    Thanks for all the replies guys.

    It seems that all the PF classes have a cool capstone at 20, any ideas?

    Turn into a dragon x/day seems fitting.

    iirc, the DFA with its BAB comparable to a wizard should actually be bumped down to a d6 hit die. There exists a correlation between BAB and hit die in pathfinder core (excepting barbarians)

    What that really means is that DFA should get a pointless BAB boost.
    BEEP.

    To expand on my previous suggestion: Shapechange x/day as SLA or Su, can only transform into dragons (including dragon subtypes and dragonbloods.)

    Su would be best so it can't be dispelled, however as an SLA it could get a power boost (e.g. you can turn into a dragon with HD = your class level + 4 or something.
