A while ago I was emailed a copy of a conversion for Planescape to Mage: the Ascension. At the time I had no idea who the author was, so it took quite awhile for me to track down Mr. James O'Rance. I recently got in touch with Mr. O'Rance and he graciously gave us permission to host his work.
Janus Aran has put together a conversion for Planescape (in 2nd and 3.x formats) to his preferred system: HERO. Here you will find Janus's conversion guide for Planescape to HERO, the first in our efforts to bring the Planes to other systems.
Welcome back! This is part two of our interview with Todd Stewart, the primary designer of Piazo's Pathfinder Setting Cosmology. If you haven't read part one yet - go read! Then get right on back here. Our second half of this interview focuses on the Inner Planes, and some overall questions about the cosmology and how to go about using it in a game. Settle back and listen up...
There've been a lot of questions floating around our forums about the planes in this new age of gaming we've found ourselves in. Which is to say, a lot of the folks around here have been looking at the Planes in 4th edition, and the Planes in Paizo's Pathfinder setting and wondering just where their own Planar adventures would fit best.

So today I got the PCS, and spent the better part of the day flipping through it. While it may be *only* approx. 250 pages, it is easily double the information in the new FRCS book, though that latter book has a few art pieces that are much more gorgeous. Of course, FR is an utter incohesive mess at the moment so the PCS easily blows it out of the water.
On its own merits, I'd say the hardcover is a bit on the pricey side and I hope Paizo makes it cheaper if only to enable more DMs to take the plunge. The pdf, approx. $35, is more of a deal.
