Not going to Gen Con but I will be at PAX unplugged. So if I am reading this right, my debit card will charged for Arsenal (or as I am hoping to call it, "The Toy Box") next Thursday, July 12th?

For what it's worth, in my one campaign setting there is an organization known as the Druid Council. They are the rulers of large tracts of lands and in those areas as well as the organization itself is organized into three main tiers. At the very top are the druids themselves who watch over the realms and act to preserve and cultivate the various environments, no matter what your specialty. Just below them are certain arcane spellcasters most notably witches and sorcerers of various nature oriented patrons and/or bloodlines. Below them are the more martial classes with rangers at the top of this pecking order followed closely by hunters, barbarians and other nature oriented specialty warriors as well as bards who act as lawyers in all legal matters where the Druid Council holds sway. Below them is everybody else. For anyone in the top three tiers Druidic is a bonus language, a kind of secret code based on Ogham which was a real world language that was a purely written code. The idea here is that between the different tiers, writing in druidic allows for the passage of secret messages back and forth.

They're both restrictive environments.

On the other hand, if the details are fun for you to work out, go for it.

I was thinking along these lines for the most part. I mean our own astronauts go underwater as part of their training last time I checked. Definitely a good idea.

I putting this in homebrew because I am not sure where else it could go. I am starting to put together thoughts and plans to create a dieselpunk style campaign using Starfinder rules set underwater. Among other sources I am drawing inspiration for this from such programs as Seaquest DSV, Journey to the Bottom of the Sea, Aquaman, Tigersharks, Blue Submarine No. 6, Stingray, Marine Boy and other various underwater oriented adventure series. The idea here is that in order to survive and explore, the PCs need their armor and equipment to act as a buffer between the outside environment.

I am thinking that the filtered rebreather and thermostatic add ons to armor would be useful in such a campaign and am looking to see how easily one can adapt vehicles to work down there. Most weapons can be made adaptable to such an environment although I am envisioning cryo and sonic weapons working the best with the least necessary modifications. If you will excuse the pun, how far off the deep end am I going with this? Do you have any suggestion as far as media to look at for additional information?

My birthday is the last day of July. I signed on for the main book subscription service. I do hope this means that by the time my birthday rolls around I will have more toys to include in the pre-gens I intend to make for the furry con I will be attending the weekend before Halloween as well as a few things for my ysoki solarion to dream about using in starfinder society.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

First and foremost I wish for an entire AP where the villainous organization you have to deal with is the Dominion of the Black and ONLY the Dominion of the Black. I imagine they have enough range in the kinds of critters at their disposal you could go from 1st to 20th and beyond and still not kill them all.

Beyond that I would delve into old movies and cartoons like:

Flash Gordon
Buck Rogers
Commander Cody (Radar Men from the Moon, etc.)
Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors
Captain Future
Captain Harlock
Battle of the Planets (Super Scientific Ninja Team Gatchaman)
Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato)
Outlaw Star
Red Dwarf

Potentially stupid question but are races that are legal for play in PFS legal for play in SFS? I have Advanced Race Guide among other official books. Is it possible to create a kitsune solarion for SFS play?


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Alright, I need to keep an eye on this so I can volunteer to GM this as soon as possible here in Philadelphia.

I get the sneaking suspicion that the folks at WizKids who are making minis for Pathfinder would make minis for Starfinder easily enough. Heck, I don't think I would be psychic if I say there were folks at WizKids that heard about the new games and said: "We're minis for you guys for this right?" I already know that there are people on the starfinder who want to announce organized play but the logistics for that is a nightmare that if they are even somewhat working on that it's on the sly. We will seeing more in the future to be sure and I know I will be supporting it as much as possible. I love space opera; it's one of my favorite sub-genres of Science Fiction and the idea that they want to make Starfinder to do for Space Opera what Shadowrun did for Cyberpunk is one I applaud.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am liking what I am hearing in all this. Rat folk are going to be in the core, I think that has been confirmed. I would love to see kitsune, cat folk, vanaras and nagaji as well. There is a lot of potential here and for now I want to see what comes out within the first year of its existence before I go clamoring for [insert name of race here] to be made available. It's not even out yet folks. It's OK to get excited but let's not get too carried away shall we?


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am one of those that was suitably impressed by Dragonstar when it came out. I can see where the core classes can be ported over just fine as well as how some of the other classes might fit although in some cases depending on what the new classes bring to the table I would still want to look at concept before pigeon holing anyone into anything. When I play the game I usually play a ranger and that class can be rather ubiquitous in how I see can be played in medieval settings, modern settings or futuristic settings. But I am also content to adopt a wait and see attitude when it comes to this.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Gods I can't wait for August, is there anyway in the next few months I can start sending money to just outright buy books for this in advance? No lie, I just want the books because everything I have heard about this just has me excited and anxious to get the freaking books.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hmmm, I may have to steal this idea if I get to run Strange Aeons. From what I can tell it would slot in perfectly with that AP


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hmmmm, I wonder how easy it will be to take the game's rules and what not but use our own solar system as the basis? Add in anthropomorphic animal races as something the people of Earth or some alien races is toying with, much like the Moreaus from d20 Modern, and go from there?


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Interesting ideas, Proley, I am taking not of your suggestions. The main goal of the campaign is more exploration and selling their exploits to the public. There is also some cosmic horror thrown in here so the crew sometimes gets more than they bargained for. Although the Captain does his best to make sure that what should remain sunk stays sunk.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The campaign calls them pirates and the one nation certainly considers them pirates for taking the treasure they themselves sunk and planned on recovering. While I am not in favor of One Piece it is something I am looking at as an example since it focuses on piracy. Some players may revel in being called pirates but they are not really pirates; salvagers and explorers to be sure but not the sea robbers that are pirates.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I have this idea for a campaign that will include material from the Skull and Shackles AP, Freeport and Razor Coast among other things in a campaign world that takes inspiration principally from Waterworld (yes, the Kevin Costner PA movie), Pirates of the Caribbean and Pirates of Dark Water with this being the general theme song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zewxwc1SFeo

In this drowning world there was a cataclysm some 1K+ years before the start of the campaign that flooded the world and it hasn't dried out yet. There are plenty of island nations that are near constantly at war with one another over resources. But there are treasures waiting to be looted on the sea floor both from the remains of civilizations long, long ago and one of the nations has this idea in its collective noggin to sink its own ships and claim it was done by pirates or a rival nation as an excuse to hang the innocent mariners as pirates or go to war.

The PCs are part of the crew of a salvage guild ship specializing in looting all these wrecks. Although if some navy vessel decides they want to take them on suspicion of piracy they will defend themselves and in fact they have effectively raided several warships from the one nation that sinks its own ships that I mentioned above because ships from that navy decided to catch them to fill their quota for the week. Now, given all that information how justified would it be in calling the PCs pirates?


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I never bought into 4E but I did look into 5E but always kept my main interest in Pathfinder. If they did more with 5E I'd have been more on board with it but the fact that they seem to want to stay in FR and not go off world annoyed me since I wanted Mystara content and ultimately SpellJammer. Starfinder is the next step in that evolution as far as I am concerned with Dragonstar having been the next step for the 3E period. We shall see, I look forward to running it in my area to be sure.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

We already have numerous UFO lore references in Bestiary 5 which I would not mind seeing continue but I am hoping for original stuff as well. I too would love to see a line of humanoid, humanized animal species but that list could be exhaustive. I know from my own work and I concentrate only on mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Although that said I am supporting this as much as possible.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

OK, as someone who loves psionics and psychic magic equally I am quite interested in seeing how much this plays into the game. Historically speaking psionic/psychic ability has been a part of science fiction for quite some time. Heck, the reason may who don't want this as part of [insert name of favorite fantasy RPG here] is because of the overall perception that is sci-fi and thus has no place in fantasy. I like to refer to psionic/psychic power as "Magic that likes to pretend it's science" as there have been fantasy stories to feature it and if we are doing science fantasy I think it really should be part of the game. But I understand there are those that might not agree with me. Still I do think it's the most "appropriate" kind of magic as in its a trope that is well establish and well accepted as being part of the overall space opera landscape, or would that be starscape?


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

OK, the pdf is in my shopping cart and next paycheck I buy that and Ultimate Intrigue. The HC is on pre-order which I paid for with a gift card from my birthday. So whenever Amazon gets their copies for sale one of them is flagged as mine.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

New classes are nice but I also would like to see them take a page or two out of Dragonstar and adapt existing classes to outer space. The way they restructured pretty much everything favorably impressed me. I also expect them to extrapolate what they did to certain classes in Unchained and maybe take that same approach to rangers, paladins and other core classes.

Sounds good, I am expecting a reprint of the Technology guide with all the gear from Iron Gods thrown in for good measure.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Unless I am playing in PFS I don't give much regard to Golarion anyway. So far I see what they are doing and am encouraged about what is coming. I may step up and GM if and when they put in organized play. But I also like science fantasy space opera quite a bit.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

A lot of sci-fi games hand wave currency all together or use some intangible like credits. Revamping the whole credstick idea is interesting and very could work especially if the PCs are mercenary in any capacity.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

This is going to be a science fantasy setting so the sky is the limit as far as pay loads go. Putting an explosive in an arrowhead is something most folks don't blink an eye at or question. Imagine adding magic to that, say as the delivery device of a fireball with so much damage it would make the bombs we dropped on Japan to end WW2 look like mere firecrackers. And yes that is a little extreme but in a game like this it could be par for the course. But I like going gonzo.

I like how they are going to be putting an emphasis on alien races become playable. I did like Spelljammer but at the same time I also liked Dragonstar.

Compound bows can be nice, you have pulleys that negate the whole calibration for strength thing and a few models have a small quiver built in. But I'm also a big fan of Green Arrow...


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I would be very surprised if stuff we already have on the Dark Tapestry does not get at least mention and/or expanded. Somehow I can see them as major adversaries in this setting.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Well, we do have the strix and I for one have them show up in something like this as something akin to the hawk men from Flash Gordon.

If we can get them sure, and for the children, the giff are a race of humanoid hippo folk from Spelljammer. I for one would be amused if they managed to get in.

Sentient AI quest givers anyone?


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'd like to see consolidate skills, group skills or both; loyalties instead of alignment; automatic magic item progression. Well, those are my faves from Unchained.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I will have to look this weekend. A facebook page to increase hype and enthusiasm might actually be amusing.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am a backer on the Aethera project and look forward to its fruition no matter how it shakes out. Pathfinder or Starfinder I will be using Aethera with Starfinder as I speculate that they will work well together. That and Legendary Planet from Legendary Games.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'd love to see something involving the Dark Tapestry.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am sure mecha will be available and if Paizo doesn't do it, I know LPjr is planning on doing something with them.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Either otyughs or gelatinous cubes. I would love to see catfolk as a core race in this.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

All good suggestions, if Owen KC Stephens could be persuaded to do something it will be good as well.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I read an Enworld article that says that they want organized play but they are not sure how to go about doing it. Here's hoping whatever issues they have they can resolve soon after Starfinder launches.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Battle of the Planets (Gatchaman)
Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato)
Galaxy Express
Silverhawks
Galaxy Rangers
Saber Rider and the Star Sherriffs
Star Gate (anything and everything)

Space Opera has a long and storied history in print and film as well as other forms of media. There is no shortage of inspiration from.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Add my vote for some starfinder stuff for NeoExodus. I know LPjr will be doing some excellent work. Honestly everyone looks like they are jumping on board. I may have to see what I want/need to do for the perpetual project that I have been working on of new races that combine human and 2 other animals to make a lot of new options.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Names are rather superfluous but I have seen a few good ones. Maybe something like Exploration League or Seeker Corps. Right now I am just hoping and praying for it to be announced and I can sign up.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Dark Tapestry stuff is a definite want from me as well.

Spelljammer and Dragonstar were wonderful. I see starfinder as potentially the next step in the evolution of science fantasy space opera gaming. And to add my 2cp on Spheres of Power I love it, I was a backer for it and in my home brew games it replaces the traditional magic system.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

For Starfinder I think Dragonstar material might be slightly more relevant but I would not rule out the possibility for SpellJammer either, although they may alter them to resemble Spider Moon ships rather than classic spellammer.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am curious to see what sort of catalog we're going to get in regards to the Dark Tapestry. Since they are using Pathfinder cannon the Dark Tapestry makes an obvious choice for recurring adversaries.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Magic/Tech fusion as a kind of advanced alchemy sounds good to me. But maybe not everyone I know. I am still in a state of cautious optimism right now as this is something that I love and get excited about all too easily.

There is a lot of speculation but little real info as of right now. I am excited to see this and look forward to having fights with the Dark Tapestry next year and beyond.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

In something like space opera spaceships are something that are a must. There is a lot of potential for them good and bad. Although that said I hope somebody has flying saucers available for PCs and GMs. I have had dreams on them for quite some time.
