M Human Operative 2

From the SRD:
OPERATIVE’S EDGE (EX) 1ST LEVEL
Your diverse training as an operative grants you a +1 insight bonus to initiative checks and to skill checks. This bonus increases by 1 at 3rd level and every 4 levels thereafter.

SPECIALIZATION 1ST LEVEL
Your specialization represents your primary area of expertise. Pick one specialization upon taking your 1st level of the operative class. Once made, this choice cannot be changed. Your specialization grants you the Skill Focus feat in your specialization’s associated skills, and you gain a free skill rank in each of those skills at each operative level (this does not allow you to exceed the maximum number of skill ranks in a single skill).

SKILL SYNERGY
You understand how two skills work well together.

Benefit: Choose two skills. These skills become class skills for you. If one or both were already class skills, you gain a +2 insight bonus to those skill checks instead.

Special: You can take this feat multiple times. Its effects don’t stack. Each time you take it, it applies to two different skills.

So it's not really clear.

Sadly they would not. Both are the same type of bonus.

Skill Focus

You are particularly Adept at a certain skill.

Benefit: Choose a skill. You gain a +3 insight bonus to checks involving the chosen skill.

Special: You can take this feat multiple times. Its effects don’t stack. Each time you take this feat, it applies to a new skill.

Ya, in Starfinder pretty much anything that adds to skills is an Insight bonus.


M Human Operative 2

Should we discuss roles here? Piloting 9 and Engineering 6 here. Will do whatever role needed.

I'm easy. Piloting 6.

To be honest I don't have any familiarity with SF's ship/battle rules, nor PF's. Looking to learn as we go...


you can, but any starship combat will not be for a while


TN Elf Mystic 2 Max HP: 16; Max SP: 10 | EAC: 16; KAC: 17 | Init: +3 | Fort +1; Ref: +3; Will: 6

I've had to become something of an expert on the starship rules. When we get to Starship combat, I'll give everyone a quick breakdown on the various roles and types of checks you can make.

Edward Sobel, when we get to that point, we'll likely want to have a link to our ship at the top of the page, as it tends to get referenced a lot.

If it helps, I wrote up a condensed set of what each role can do on google docs that I can share once we get into starship combat.


TN Elf Mystic 2 Max HP: 16; Max SP: 10 | EAC: 16; KAC: 17 | Init: +3 | Fort +1; Ref: +3; Will: 6

I did more or less the same thing =)


cool, thanks guys

Now I’m just picturing the TNG crew playing poker.


TN Elf Mystic 2 Max HP: 16; Max SP: 10 | EAC: 16; KAC: 17 | Init: +3 | Fort +1; Ref: +3; Will: 6

I had that same thought myself.


hi guys, just quick note that I will not be available till Saturday.


Male Shirren Ace Pilot Mechanic 2 Init +2 | Per +5 (blindsense [vibrations] 30') | EAC 13, KAC 15 | SP 14/14, HP 12/12, RP 3/3 | Fort +4, Ref +5, Will +1

Anyone still here?


TN Elf Mystic 2 Max HP: 16; Max SP: 10 | EAC: 16; KAC: 17 | Init: +3 | Fort +1; Ref: +3; Will: 6

I am, but it looks like you and I are alone.


hey all, real sorry, I had lots of crazy crap going on, and it seemed like there was not much interest in this game.

in any event it really is my fault here.

if anyone is interested in getting back into this game let me know.

if not I understand that as well.

I’d be down for continuing.

I have been checking this game, but I didn't see the recent posts asking if folks were still around. I'm good with continuing.


TN Elf Mystic 2 Max HP: 16; Max SP: 10 | EAC: 16; KAC: 17 | Init: +3 | Fort +1; Ref: +3; Will: 6

still ready and willing.


cool, I will gather may stuff back up and get things going again tomorrow.
