The extraterrestrial menaces of Starfinder Alien Archive come alive on your tabletop with this box-busting collection of more than 300 creature pawns for use with the Starfinder Roleplaying Game or any tabletop science fantasy RPG! Printed on sturdy cardstock, each pawn features a beautiful, full-color image of an alien from the Starfinder RPG's first collection of interplanetary threats and unique player-character races. These cardboard pawns slot into size-appropriate plastic bases, making it easy to mix them with traditional metal or plastic miniatures. With multiple pawns for commonly encountered creatures and a handful of new foes to fight in starship combat, the Starfinder Alien Archive Pawn Box is the best way to ensure you've got the perfect characters to bring your Starfinder campaign to life!

Hundreds of aliens invade your tabletop! While creature pawns are broken out by base size, all starship pawns use medium bases. The Starfinder Alien Archive Pawn Box includes the following:

Super excited to see pawns coming out so soon after the product!

And this is actually the second Starfinder pawn box.

The first one can be found here.

I thought that first one wasn't a box but one of those thinner releases.

Yep, you are right, Samy.

The product David linked seems to be just like the Pawn collections for a Pathfinder AP and will probably have only the iconics and base creatures from the Starfinder Core Rulebook art and will have no bases included.

Maybe even a few from the first AP "Dead Suns", as that AP will probably use some creatures from there.

This here is an actual box like the Pathfinder Bestiary Boxes and should include some bases indicated by the similiar pricing.

It's drawn from a book on creatures, so what reason would there possibly be for putting starships in this set?

Spoiler:
Because there are three starships in this set. And they're each there for a good reason.

In the Bringing Out the Big Guns thread, we learned from the writer of Alien Archive about his very topic:

Jason Keeley wrote:
This is probably a conversation served better by another thread, but in the most teasing way possible, here's what you will see in Alien Archive: an alien that IS a starship, an alien that can turn into a starship, a sample starship for a familiar alien race, and a starship frame that you'd have to be a real jerk to use.

My guess is that the starship frame you would have to be a jerk to use is some sort of take on a space whale.

So if I want to be a real jerk of a GM, I need to wait a couple of months after August to give the party the "starship frame that you'd have to be a real jerk to use" as their initial ship, right?

Vic posted on the "Alien Archive" product page that there are over 90 different pawn images inside the box, which would average about three per creature.

Of course we will probably get like six "Space Goblins" and two "Necrovites". ;-)

Paizo Employee Community & Digital Content Director

Updated with final description and image. Set list to follow closer to release.


Hmm.. so there are 90 images in this pawn set and almost 160 images in the corresponding book. Can some of the missing images be found in the core rulebook pawn set?

No, Alien Archive has 160 pages, but over 80 creatures (with images).

There should be almost every creature (up to huge size, but not the gargantuan or colossal ones - planet-killing "novaspawn" are a good bet) in this pawn set.
Huge ones (like the "Ksarik") will most probably be in it once, while small ones (like the "space goblins") will probably be in it multiple times.

I can see that the Space Goblin pawn says "Goblins, Space"....however, in my head it says "Goblins in Spaaaaace".

It was stated in the alien archive discussion that almost every creature will get two illustrations.

Unfortunately, I'm sure it's too late for them to correct this error. :)

Thanks for the info, i didn´t see that. :-)

It will probably be a male and femal version each (or seven for some species)?! ;-)

Aww, is this an April Fools joke? That thing on the side of the box looks like some variety Barathu (or a Liavaran Dreamer?) which is basically the friendliest, most xeno-loving creature in the whole Golarion system

And they can all be traced back to Tribbles.

The set list has been added!

It's good to see that every creature gets at least 2 pawns and that creatures which are encountered in groups get up to six pawns.

Can anybody who knows provide an answer to how many creatures of one type the new "summon monster" spell can conjure?
I would guess up to four, as that's the number of pawns all elementals get, even if personally i'd like it to be one.

Thanks.

When you select summon creature as a spell known, you select four creatures you can summon for each spell level you can cast it at. For example, if you select it as a 3rd level spell known, you pick four creatures for when casting it as a 3rd level spell, four for when casting it a a 2nd level spell, and four for when casting it as a 1st level spell.

If the creature you select if from the same level summoning table as the spell level, you can summon one such creature when you cast it. So if I choose medium fire elemental as one of my creatures I can summon with a 3rd level summon creature spell, I can summon one medium fire elemental when I cast it.

If however, I select a creature from a lower-level summoning chart as one of my summonable creatures for 3rd level summon creature, I can summon three of them. So if instead of a medium fire elemental I choose a Small fire elemental, I would summon three.

I could even make one of my 3rd level spell choices one medium fire elemental, and another one three Small fire elementals.

However the default for what features you can summon is elementals, so if multiple spell casters can summon elementals are what you are most likely to need more than 3 of.

Labels, yes; numbers, no. (And, like the Starfinder Core pawns, there is color-coding to differentiate multiple pawns that have the same art.)

Do a lot of you want numbers?

It´s far easier to write "Skittermander 1", "Skittermander 2"... on the Initiative counter than to write "Skittermander Blue", Skittermander Yellow" and so on.

It´s a space issue.

So yes, i´m more of a numbers guy, even if both numbers and colors would be the best of both worlds.
But if i would have to chose, it´s numbers.

Thank you for asking, Vic.

And thank you very much @Owen for explaining "Summon Monster". :-)

Augh!

Yes, I really want numbers. I keep track of pawns by keeping them sorted by numbers. They go into binders, and I have files that index them by numbers. If I'm looking for a pawn of a given thing, I can search the files, and then I know both which set has it, and which number in the set it is. I turn to the page, and I've got it.

With the Starfinder Core set, I wrote in numbers in pen by hand, following the convention that used to be printed on pawns with (for instance) the Bestiary Boxes, where pawns that were copies got the same number.

Back in the day, Paizo put numbers on all of their pawns, as well as an indication as to what set it came from. I'm very sad that this seems to have gone away. I'm probably going to skip the Heroes & Villains set because of the missing labels and numbers. I wrote in by hand on the Starfinder Core set. I already have this set coming because of a subscription; I'm not sure what I'll do, as it's even more things to write in numbers on.

(Does this set at least have an indication that it's the Alien Archive pawns? Or is it only names? The names are the one label I don't need. In fact, there's probably even an argument for leaving them off.)

But *please* print all pawns with labels and numbers. It helps those of us who want to keep our pawns organized, and don't want to page through shelves of binders to find what we're looking for.

So is there a particular reason that a large number of things included in the AP and Society weren't included in this or the Core Pawn Box? Off hand, no Space Goblin Bullies, no Pegasus, no Akata, no Gaargakl just to name a few. I guess there could be a Dead Suns collection coming later, but that doesn't help for the SFS scenarios.

Presumably it's because the monsters you list arent in the CRB or the AA.

Early on in the line there's bound to be gaps. Hopefully we'll get a dead suns pawn set midway through 2018 and possibly a 'gap' set prior to that with odds and sods.

Iron God pawns can be helpful, obviously you won't find specific Starfinder creatures but there are a few decent stand ins. :-)
