Rise of the Runelords; Converting to PF RPG CRB

Do we convert, or do we hold where we're at? Pathfinder RPG CRB (Role Playing Game Core Rulebook) is out and available to the masses. TOS+ is being modified to support this. There have been changes to the classes and races. Some are small, some are big. You would each need to look over your character build and compare the differences and choose. The cleric went back to something like 3.5 as did the wizard. Favored classes has changed too. The half-orc only gets a bonus to one ability like the human does; same for the half-elf. CMB is now countered by CMD (combat maneuver defense). Some of you may like the changes, some of you may not. This thread will be for discussing this choice and comparing the changes. I will keep this poll open for as long as needed and allow you to change your vote if desired, but there will be only one vote per player.

Financial reasons will not be considered here as Richard points out there is a SRD version of the Core Rules.
Another reason to consider the switch is that Richard is looking for testers of TOS+ v2.9 Beta. If you are willing to convert your character over to the 2.9 Beta Release, then vote for the conversion, otherwise vote to stay.

From a purely practical standpoint, it would be difficult to keep running the Beta rules once TOS+ integrates the final ruleset. It would mean keeping an old version of the sheet around or making custom classes/races that use the Beta rules. Not that either of those are overwhelmingly difficult...

Although the changes actually mean a reduction in power for Vi, I like them. It was getting to be too much like playing a warlock, not a sorcerer.

I voted yea to the changes, as well. I figure, the Beta rules were Beta for a reason, and the standard rules are standard for a reason. Probably problems with the Beta rules somewhere down the line.

I am in for changing over. Beta is for testing and since the final release is out, that is the way we should go.
