Starfinder


We're about 2/3 of the way through November. A lot of holidays are coming up, and there'll be plenty of new Starfinder and Pathfinder releases available for players to get as presents. Paizo's latest releases are now available. You can pick up some maps, some adventures, and the Starfinder Character Operations Manual.

Having options for your character is what every player in an RPG wants. That's exactly what Starfinder players are getting with the Character Operations Manual. New classes, new options for existing classes, new feats, new spells, new equipment, new roles for starship combat. It's got a bit of everything. This isn't one to miss.

Wake up. Grab your brush, put a little makeup. It's the things we take for granted for our RP characters. They're not -always- adventuring, swinging swords or shooting blasters. There's downtime, too. In this article for the upcoming Character Operations Manual for Starfinder, Paizo takes a look at new downtime systems to make them more interesting than just "time passes."

The Character Operations Manual coming soon for Starfinder has, as one would expect, a bunch of new options for characters in the game. A major aspect of any character is their Class. Well, the Manual has several new ones for players to pick. Have yourself a look at a preview of these new options.

I'm human. You're human. We're all human. And each of us is different. However, when it comes to races in RPGs, they tend to boil down entire races and species into a single set of traits you put on your character. Well, Paizo knows that that's not the best and is giving players more racial options for the different core races from the Starfinder book in the upcoming Character Operations Manual. In this preview, we get a look at just what some of those options will look like.

Alien Archive 3 for Starfinder gives GMs a bunch of new alien species to toss at players. But, more than that, it also gives you a way to create your own new alien species. In this article, Aaron Shanks, the designer of the creature companion system, talks about the process behind how the system was made and implemented in the book.

It's always interesting to see who's working on the games we love. Over at Paizo, they've got quite a team working on products like Pathfinder and Starfinder. And there's been a lot of moving and shaking going on, with new hires and promotions happening all around. Go take a look at who's gone where and what they're working on now.

Paizo has a pretty busy October planned, from the looks of the update they just posted. If you're wanting to know what's going on with the continued rollout for Pathfinder 2nd Edition, Starfinder and the Starfinder Society, and what events that the company will be attending this month, you'll definitely want to check out this post.

We're about 2/3 of the way through September. This month has been going by quickly. Seems like a good time to be showing off some releases. Paizo has posted up theirs, with a whole batch of products for both Pathfinder and Starfinder. From new books, to a new critical deck, to new maps. Have a look.

Why do game designers make the decisions they do? What draws them to create the way they create? That's what a lot of gamers want to know. In the upcoming Alien Archive 3 for Starfinder, there's a lot of different races coming to the game, and Paizo's posted up a Design Diary article with the designers so they can talk about where they got their inspiration for making the aliens they did.

Space is big. Really big. You may think it's a long way down to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts compared to space. And with all that space, there are plenty of alien species inhabiting the various planets, moons, and asteroids. You get a whole bunch more of them for your Starfinder games in Alien Archive 3. In this article, we get a look at some of them, including new playable races.

Paizo has announced that they're teaming up with Archon Studios to create their Masterclass Starfinder miniatures. This includes changing over from resin to plastic. Also, those that backed the Starfinder Kicktarter from Ninja Division, backers will be getting the figures again in plastic (those that had received figures already).

Roll20 lets you play RPGs with anyone anywhere (as long as they have internet, anyway). Want to game with your friend on another continent? You can do it. Or someone just sick at home and still wants to play? You can get them involved. And if you're playing Starfinder over there, there's the start of a new adventure path available. It's The Reach of the Empire, and it's available now.

August is not all that far away. With it will come Gen Con and some new releases from Paizo. ... *looks at the number of releases* Ok, so "some" might be an understatement. There's going to be a deluge of releases. But then, it will be the release of the new Pathfinder edition. So there's that. Have yourself a look-see.

Iron GM Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Grimmerspace, their new sci-fi/horror RPG setting that utilizes the Starfinder rules set. As you can tell from the name, Grimmerspace is not a nice, friendly, shiny sci-fi setting. It's a lot more dark, dirty, and dangerous. And, I mean, it was co-developed by Sean Astin. Yes, that Sean Astin (You know... Sam from Lord of the Rings).

The Starfinder Beginner's Box is coming soon. There's a lot to put into a little package, and the folks at Paizo had to figure out what to leave in and what to cut out. In this article, they talk about some of those decisions and how they came about figuring out what could stay and what should go.

WizKids and Paizo have had a good relationship so far, and it's only getting better. They've entered into an agreement to make Starfinder miniatures now. I, for one, look forward to more reasonably priced sci-fi minis of all types for my tabletop.

Discuss

Grimmerspace is the new horror sci-fi setting that's compatible with the Starfinder RPG system. Iron GM Games has released the first adventure for it. It's called Abattoir 8 and it's not about being a hero, it's about making it out in as few pieces as possible (preferrably one). This new adventure is free to download for a short period of time. Get your copy now.

We were all new to our games at one point or another. So, it's good to have products designed to get new gamers up and going quickly and easily with your game systems. For Starfinder, Paizo is doing that with their new beginner box. You can order yours now.

Back to Monday again. I mean, I'm not thrilled with it. But it's just one of those things that happens, y'know? And, with that, we're also into a new month. The first quarter of the year's over with. Time for spring to really get into full swing. I know the pollen outside is reminding people of that... So, while everything outside gets coated in green/gold powder, let's stay inside and make your gaming tables look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Paizo Announces Starfinder Map, John Carter of Mars: Ruins of Korad Tile Set PDF Available From Modiphius, and New Medieval Lost Burg MDF Terrain From Pwork Wargame.

Rolling a 1 in a game is bad. You missed your attack, which could've been absolutely vital. But what if it was even worse than that? Paizo has their Starfinder Critical Fumble Deck where players can draw a card from the deck and see what sort of horrible things also happened to them when they slipped on that banana peel.

Discuss

It's always nice to have some pre-made adventures hanging around so you can easily drop them into your games. For those that play Starfinder, you've got the Starfinder Soceity, with all its linked adventures for the different campaigns. Paizo's posted up March's entries, so you can head out into the stars now.

Biology. Phsyics. Chemistry. There might be a lot of terrifying things out in the depths of space, but they all abide by these laws. But what happens when magic is introduced, for the first time ever, into the universe? That's what you'll have to find out in Grimmerspace, a new horror sci-fi setting for Starfinder coming from Iron GM Games, with distribution partner Modiphius. The game is coming to Kickstarter in May.

All things must come to an end. That is what we know, and that includes adventure paths. In this instance, it's the Adventure Path #12, Signal of Screams, for Starfinder.
