That actually made me remember a HUGE advantage for Pathfinder that the majority of people won't really realize:
It's ten times easier to make a Pathfinder NPC than it is a 3.5 one.

Since my practical experience with paper-based D&D ended with a brief foray into the second edition rules, I was pretty happy to see this conversion. I guess if you were really into the 3.5 rules, this might just be fun to read for nostalgia purposes. But I'd never heard of the Pathfinder system so thanks for sharing.

I hope your preferred enemy is gnolls. And don't forget to collect those kill mementos.

And it seemed like the armor class for most of the characters was pretty high considering they were all 1st level (most had armor classes in the 15 - 16 range).
