Simple straight forward question: Why are elves not a core race, from the races we know about thus far? They are already a space-faring race in pathfinder and they are one of the more popular races in the game, so why not?

[silliness]
My theory: elves cause cancer. No one wants to be around them in a confined ship (aside from other elves) for a prolonged period of time because long term exposure to elven radiation gives other races cancer. Even androids.
[/silliness]

Also, I'd say that the designers wanted to do something new.

Do you have a theory why elves or any of the other core races are not core here (serious or silly)?

I would say it would take it's cues from runelord. Each adventure would center around a different classic monster (goblinoids, constructs, void creatures that don't breathe, etc), showing how each is different in space with an overarching plot of someone/something wanting to take over and/or destroy everything. probably a corporation.

More than anything else, it will be a tour of the solar system.

I don't anyone to think I am ignoring them... but most of those things are the kind of specific details we're not at the stage to discuss yet. The questions themselves can be useful, since it encourages us to look at an issue, but until we are much further along we won't have things like this pinned down.

In that case:

My Starfinder Requests

  • Alignment is no longer a game mechanic. So its like 5e where yes you still have an alignment, but you don't have a ray gun of smite evil,
  • Flumphs be in the core book. Artwork of the signature engineer repairing something while a flumph is handing him/her a tool, improved familiar, playable race, whatever. Just as long as they are there.
  • Ships/vehicles have levels or some other balancing mechanic other than cost. When I was making vehicles for Pathfinder after Ultimate Combat came out, I found it REALLY difficult to even suggest that X vehicle be at a certain level. I suggest something like the eidolon build where you have the base form and then, as the group goes up in level, you add on extra stuff, like shields, more powerful lasers, improved sensors, smuggling compartments, etc. Done like this, a ship can go from levels 1-20 with the characters.
  • A ways to play R2-D2/BB-8. This one is a stretch or probably better for a Starfinder Compatible supplement, but I am throwing it out there.

The most I.portant thing to remember is that the classes will be compatible, meaning that you can take a class from one and use it in the other with little issue. As for what classes generally look like, I'd say, look to unchained, ACG, and OA: open choices (arcanist) where your last choice may have nothing to do with the previous choice, classes with themed choices (shaman, unchained summoner, kinectist) where your later class choices are limited based on an early decision (but not by much), and classes that can do more than heal (warpriest, hunter).

Beyond that, don't expect to see some radical new approach to class design.

From there, I would recommend checking out either Frog God Games or Legendary Games. They're both good and worth checking out.

Well it is going to depend greatly on how the city and the people view magic in general, and it is going to vary from city to city.

If the city views magic as:

  • A tool, helpful for all even if not accessible by all, then it will probably be in or near the local guild hall or near the market with shops nearby. It will be either totally unguarded or minimally guarded. The few guards that are there are more to collect the toll for using the circle.

  • A power to be kept in the hands of the elite, then there will be one in the mage's tower, guarded by powerful warding to keep various undesired creature types (demons/devils, fey, etc) from using it altogether and to hold desired creature types (humanoids) in a contained area until they can be cleared for entry. Guards: a duty of the lower ranking wizards will be to watch the circle and let one of the higher ranking wizards know when someone comes.

  • A power that should not be trusted but is necessary for the king, then in a converted dungeon with mundane protection (aka stone walls) magnified by magical protection. Guards: oh yes.

  • An excess of an eccentric ruler, then just about everywhere. Literally, you'll see them in random houses, all over the palace, near the stable. There will be one near the ruler's bed chamber for booty calls. For a period of time, building them will be a public works project.

That's just what I can think of off the time of my head.

One of my players in my Kingmaker campaign

Let me just stop you right there.

First off, let me just say that I love me Kingmaker. My company's early Pathfinder products were directly centered around Kingmaker because I love that campaign that much. I GMed it back in the day.

Having said that, Kingmaker has some serious problems with it. Namely over-reliance on low level monsters well long after they are useful. I had the exact same problem as you and the APG was new when we were playing.

Then there is the fact that the game assumes characters have 4-5 encounters before resting and Kingmaker has an average of 1-2, with only a few exceptions. Take your Sorc/Wiz problem for a moment. he can do that trick many times/day. So the only way for them to be challenged is to give them situations where that cannot be used.

Suggestions:

  • A peasant revolt in their Kingdom. That is just low level guys straight out of the NPC Codex.

  • Monsters with spell resistance.

  • Place old ruins or caves in the kingdom that need explored. Adventure A Week modules or some converted Goodman Games/Necromancer modules are great for this.

  • Forget the random encounters. If there is plot relevant stuff to be found in a hex, it is found and move on. Instead, focus on the multi-encounter days.

As for converting to 5e, yea, it can make a difference. Its a good game and I highly recommend it myself. But that is a decision you need to talk to the group about.

Agreed with everyone else. There is alot less math involved so it is a much easier game to play and run. Adjudicating things are much simpler (forget "does this conditional bonus apply or not", its just advantage or disadvantage). The flatter math of the whole game means monsters stick around longer and a CR 3 encounter is still good when the the players are level 6 without it being a cakewalk encounter.
