Be well, Telgan. Best of luck.

Ready to go.

I have a quick question, how do boons and chronicle sheets work for online play?

I have the Welcome to Starfinder Boon (link), and I think I have to apply it to my first Starfinder character. Since Assidur is my 35598-701, how do I apply it to him? Blake, would you be able to sign it after we finish the adventure?

Thanks!

Liberty's Edge

@the party - isn't 500 a bit low? He does mention best donors. I don't know if we'll need that much money after this, but maybe a round 1000 just to make sure?

Every single time, as far as I believe Pharasma is concerned. If the undead is not evil, I think the way good Pharasmins help them along is to help them finish whatever their unfinished business was before helping them move on to the afterlife.

I'd be willing to accept any canon example of Pharasma acknowledging undeath as something natural and revise my opinion.

It doesn't mean they all do. Just like not all undead need to be evil, nor should you, in a more modern world, smite them before at least trying to talk it out.

Because undeath is evil. It is a corruption of the natural cycle of life and death, which prevents their souls from joining the River of Souls and getting their reward in the Great Beyond.

Not according to the pact worlds. :-)

I do believe that Pharasma's opinion counts for more. I believe the core of the issue is that, in-universe, there is a specific life-death process that is disrupted by undeath, which makes undeath evil even if the individual undead isn't.

Greetings all.

I have to apologize for being absent during the weekend. Last Friday there was a teacher's union strike in my city and things got violent. I was on my way to the bus station after work and was held up by some of the rioters, they hit me and took my backpack with my laptop in it. I'm alright now, but had a couple of really bad days.

I'd like to jump right in the action, if you would still have me.

Checking in! I'd like to try my hand at playing a mechanic and I'd be willing to use the pregen.

Checking in! Just got my book today, I'm pouring over it and boy do I like what I see!

My book is still on its way but I'll buy the PDF tomorrow. Will have the character up by tomorrow night!

I'm still reading the CRB but I'll have a character set by tomorrow.

US notations are weird. And from what I'm reading, this is a US-only thing, apparently associated with using the Imperial system.

Thing is, no one else does it that way, which is why it's so confusing.

Liberty's Edge

Also, would this be a good time to talk about character ideas? I'm thinking about playing a soldier, unless someone is really set on taking that role. If that's the case, I'm also curious about playing a technomancer.

Liberty's Edge

Hello everyone.

Reporting in. I'll fill in all my info as soon as possible.

Google maps works great for me, I've never used roll20 but I wouldn't have minded giving it a try.

As I've read it, the phantom could not manifest at all. It comes from the Ethereal Plane, it would also be prohibited from entering.

Vildeis, absolutely. From her backstory to her following, she definitely gets my vote.

I'll mostly leave the setting as-is, I find the narrative awesome. The one change I will make is use the Lashunta as found on Pathfinder/Distant Worlds, the retconned version will be called something else. Lushanta, probably.

The only thing I'm not 100% on board with is "flavorless" magic. I liked the differences between arcane and divine. But other than that, I'm aboard the Starfinder hype train!

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I don't really care for spontaneous casters, to be quite frank. I like the idea of preparing the spell.

Perhaps in a couple of months we'll get a new batch of classes and there will be a prepared caster in it. It'd make me really happy.

Given what little is known about the aboleth, it's probable that none of them were away from Golarion during its disappearance.

If I could have just one wish for an AP, it would be for a fully mythic AP set in or around Geb and Nex.

I too would really appreciate a return to the mass-market paperback format. I had to drop the line when it went changed, the new format just doesn't fit my shelf.

I'm glad the line will continue.

Sure, you can have a sword made of darkwood.

Linkify!

It literally will give you no benefit, but if it's a flavor decision, I'd suggest it as the way to go.

If it's a trope, it's one I happen to really, really enjoy. The whole "race of beautiful women" concept has a special place in my heart, as I grew up reading early sci-fi magazines my dad had collected when he was young. I still keep them, old issues of Future Fiction, Planet Stories and Galaxy Science Fiction.

I hope they find a place in Starfinder.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Aw, that's unfortunate. I really enjoyed playing mythic. Hopefully with time we'll get more content for it.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I loved Wrath of the Righteous, and I was wondering if there are plans for another outright-mythic AP down the line. Not one where maybe the players can get a mythic tier towards the end, rather one were the players will go all the way to tier 10 as part of the story.

It'd be really awesome.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I didn't know aboutthe 6th spell level cap. That's... quite disheartening, to be frank. I hope full-spellcaster classes do become available sometime in the near future. I never play anything but full casters, regardless of the system and setting, unless I'm absolutely forced to, but then I tend to lose interest in those games pretty quickly.
And a full-fledged wizard would be so much fun to play in space.

Friend of mine had his character go to sleep for the night away from the party, outside the fort they'd liberated, just halfway to the haunted woods (made sense in-character, I suppose).

Roll random encounter. A dire badger appears! He fails his check to wake up. Badger's hungry, and as badgers are prone to do, it wants to bite him in the neck. Rolls attack: Natural 20! Rolls to confirm: Natural 20! As per house rules, he needs to confirm the autokill: Natural 20!

Given the sheer improbability of such a roll, he's given a saving throw to survive the throat-tearing attack.

Rolls save: Natural 1.

Background:
Ion was born in Grayce, a small town in the Ustalavic province of Caliphas, near the border with Lastwall. Raised in a relatively well-off military family, he spent most of his free time exploring the wilderness that surrounds the town along with Andrei and Iosif, his two best friends.

From a young age, he received weapons and survival training from his father, a retired officer from the Ustalav army. For a long time, together with Andrei and Iosif, he considered joining the military, much to his father's satisfaction. Disciplined and courageous, Ion had all the makings of a successful career officer.

At age 14, returning home after spending four days with his father, doing survival training in the wild, they informed the rest of his family that he would not, in fact, be joining the military. They were pressed for an explanation, but refused to provide one, both for the reason why Ion would not join the military, and for the bright green scar on his father's forearm.

One week later, he left town on horseback, accompanying a trade caravan heading to Taldor. The leader of the caravan's guard, who served with Ion's father in the army, had taken him on as an apprentice.

Three years have passed, and Ion is now living in Brevoy, resting after his most recent caravan trip. He's heard that the Swordlords are looking for adventurers to explore the Stolen Lands. It sounds to him like the adventure of a lifetime.

Thank you for your consideration, I'd love to play!

Absolutely interested! Creating the character right now.

I agree, I'd have no interest in player options, but I'd jump at the chance to get modules or even APs.

Right off the bat, we (my party and I) will need a place to try out the new system. We usually finish an AP chapter in about three weeks, so we'll have plenty of time to try other mods.

Said modules would be particularly interesting if they were set in a defined setting.

If I were to be teleported to Golarion, with my current skills and knowledge?

I'm a Mechanical Engineer working on renewable energies, and a weaponsmith and marksman by hobby and training.

I'd be on my way to Alkenstar on the double, whnere I would be a LN worshipper of Malthus.

They can't use the one originally written for D&D (Age of Worms and Savage Tide) because WotC owns them and all the associated IP.

Shackled City (the first AP) was compiled into a hardcover before WotC yanked the Dragon/Dungeon licenses back in-house.

My bad, I meant for the D&D System. A Pathfinder update to Second Darkness and Legacy of Fire would be most welcome.

I think it would make a lot of sense to make Anniversary Editions of those APs that were originally published for D&D. It's a great chance to port them over to Pathfinder and get new sales.

As for APs that were alreasy Pathfinder to begin with? Maybe after a really long time has passed. Ten or fifteen years later, maybe. Otherwise they do risk hurting their sales base, for some reason when there's the prospect of a "soon-to-come, better edition", a lot of people put off buying until later, and out of those who do, a large number forget or decide not to buy.

John Glenn passed away today, at the grand age of 95. He was the first American to orbit Earth, and years later at the age of 77 when he flew on the space shuttle, he became the oldest person to fly in space.

Would I be too bold to politely request that he's in some way honored in Starfinder? He, and many who followed, inspired my generation in so many ways.

Thank you.

I hope for a wizard prestige class related to technology. Something like a warp mage or a technomancer.

I suppose it's obvious I still have a decade of lore to go through given that I understand barely a fourth of what you just wrote. But regardless, I still stand by my original request/complaint: Ditch the kitchen sink approach for Starfinder, or at least don't indulge in the subgenres of sci-fi until much later in the new game's life cycle.

While I do understand where you're coming from, I've come to realize that a big part of the success of Pathfinder stemmed from the kitchen sink approach at launch.

Think about it, when Starfinder comes out, we'll only have one AP and no modules to flesh out the setting. Now consider that if you sit ten gamers at a table to play a sci-fi game, chances are that you'll get at least five different ideas of what a sci-fi game is. Maybe a lot of gaming groups won't be interested in the flavor of sci-fi that the first AP will offer.

But if the setting laid out in the core book presents the kitchen sink approach, the GMs will be more likely to find the sort of environment their players prefer, and the adventure seeds (I'm assuming these will look like the ones in the Inner Sea World Guide) will give them a taste of what this game can bring to their table. Which will lead to them following the line, and ensuring its continuing success.

In my case, I was a big fan of Spelljammer. Still have a lot of the books. But my gaming group wants something closer to Stargate, except for someone who wants basically a Shadowrun-like game. At six months per AP, it'd take at least a year and a half to cover all three preferences. And this is just my group.

Hopefully you'll find your preferred type of sci-fi covered in the core book. Hopefully everyone will.

I've been thinking about it, and I'd like race-specific classes and prestige classes. Things only certain races have developed.
