Shoot for the Stars

Blast off into a galaxy of adventure with the Starfinder Roleplaying Game! Step into your powered armor and grab your magic-infused laser rifle as you investigate the mysteries of a weird universe with your bold starship crew. Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of alien temples? Strap on rune-enhanced armor and a laser rifle to battle undead empires in fleets of bone ships, or defend colonists from a swarm of ravenous monsters? Maybe you'll hack into the mainframe of a god-run corporation, or search the stars for clues to the secret history of the universe or brand new planets to explore. Whether you're making first contact with new cultures on uncharted worlds or fighting to survive in the neon-lit back alleys of Absalom Station, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you'll need each other.

This massive 528-page hardcover rulebook is the essential centerpiece of the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, with rules for character creation, magic, gear, and more—everything you need to play Starfinder as either a player or Game Master! The next great adventure in science-fantasy roleplaying takes off here, and the Starfinder Core Rulebook is your ticket to a lifetime of adventure amid the stars!

Inside this book, you'll find:

  • All of the rules you need to play or run a game of Starfinder.
  • Seven character classes, from the elite soldier and stealthy operative to the physics-hacking technomancer and mind-bending mystic.
  • Character races both new and classic, from androids, insectile shirrens, ratlike ysoki, and reptilian vesk to the dwarves and elves of the distant future.
  • An in-depth exploration of the Starfinder setting, including its planets, gods, factions, and threats.
  • Hundreds of weapons, spells, technological gadgets, magic items, and other options to outfit any character.
  • Complete rules for starships, including customization and starship combat.
  • Rules and tips on using Pathfinder RPG content with Starfinder.

I'd be interested in this if I can get it instead of the normal version as part of my subscription. Is this possible?

(Edit: gonna call CS and see what they say about it. Will report back with more info)
(Edit 2: just spoke with Diego, this is unfortunately not possible. If you want it, you'll need to order it separately. You can cancel the RPG sub if you only want this version, but then you miss out on the PDF and charter tag. I guess I'm getting two copies...)

Looks beautiful. Here I was just thinking that I might want to pick up a second core book for Starfinder for my group.

Howdy everyone,

I see that skizzerz has updated his post, and I wanted to chime in to verify. The Core Rulebook Limited Edition is NOT part of the subscription and the copy your subscription generates cannot be upgraded to the Limited Edition. If you want the Limited Edition you will need to place an order for it. We can cancel your subscription so you don't get the regular version. Just let us know through email, by making a thread in the customer service forum, or giving us a call at 425-250-0800 between 10am and 5pm pacific time, Monday through Friday.

The product description and store blog are being updated with clearer language regarding this.

I really wish this wasnt hot on the heels of everything else. With the first month releases adding on $80 is pretty tough. Any ideas on how limited this will be?

Yeah I love stuff like this.. it was pretty much a take my monies please moment for me. Here's hoping nothing happens to it in shipping


Can we buy one of these at Gen-Con?

I would be happy to pre-order, but the thing that would make this version a collectable (for me) would be signatures from the staff, especially those who actually worked on it. That can only happen if I can take delivery at Gen Con. I'm assuming it will not be available prior to Thursday, 10am.

Can we take delivery of this specific item at Gen Con?

Uhh, but doing that means we'd still have to shell out another $10 USD for the PDF.

Hello Everyone,

GenCon pickup is only for subscription items and this is not a subscription item. Pre orders for the Limited Edition cannot be set for GenCon pickup.

As for whether we will have them available for purchase at the show, that depends on pre order sales. So, subject to availability.

Two copies of the core rulebook isn't a bad thing anyway, so might as well.

We've already sold almost 25% of them.


Any idea when the pre-orders will ship out?

I'm also with the camp of customers that want a sub so we can get the pdf but want this version. It's easy enough to just order this copy and then start a Starfinder sub afterwards, but we would still miss out on getting the pdf when the book ships.

Is there any chance we can get this copy AND the pdf?

Crikey, with the international postage costs and taxes, it is going to double the price to ship it over here......

HOWEVER, I have managed to wrangle it as a birthday present, so..... Come to me, my pretty!

The Exchange

I already pre-ordered my copy of the CRB around six months ago... *sigh* I wish that this had been available at that time.

If I preorder this one already having a subscription will it ship alongside the normal core book from the subscription or the release date is different?

I can't help but drool looking at this, but considering the amount of time my son spends poring over my pathfinder rule books, this would not be treated properly in my house.

When will this actually ship?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Class Deck, Maps, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Mid August, probably (they haven't yet announced the exact shipping window for next month.

When they do the dates and so forth will probably be in this thread.

I'm betting first week in August. :-)

Yeah, I suspect the subscription shipping process will begin then. However, I seem to remember them "shipping" the GenCon orders first, then the subscription shipments and then preorders (like this one). So I figure this book is likely to go out around mid August if you're a non-subscriber.

I'm definitely just guessing though. :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I mistook this for the regular Starfinder book. :-)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

I all ready ordered one as I am a sucker for limited editions and deluxe editions....but I am wondering why they are releasing this...Paizo does not seem to be in the limited edition thing.

Because the limited/deluxe editions of Core Rulebook, Rise of the Runelords and CotCT have sold well? The CotCT limited edition disappeared in an eyeblink.

There were some variant cover AP issues early on that sold out pretty quickly too (from memory).

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

It will ship at the same time as all of our other August releases, including the regular edition.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Subscriber

I like this edition and ordered it, though for some odd reason I didn't see an estimated cost for shipping?

In my pre-order it's just the 79,99 from the book, and it's located in my sidecart with the first issue of the Starfinder AP.

When can I expect to see an estimate cost for the shipping?
Or will it be a surprise when it's being charged?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Class Deck, Maps, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

You'll get an email a few days before it's charged (so you can check you're getting what you want and know what the cost will be). If you don't want to make any changes, you'll be charged a short while later (and get a second email then).

This is where they'll announce timeframes and such for August. I'd keep an eye on this thread.

Yeah, I found the thread, but was unaware of the way the costs would be made clear, as all my previous purchases were things that weren't preorders.

Thanks for the info!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Class Deck, Maps, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

No worries.

If you want an estimate in the meantime, you can place the things in your sidecart that will be shipping (this and the first AP instalment, by the look of your tags). Then you can click through the order process to the second tab and the various shipping options will be displayed for the order.

Then you can go back and take them out of your shopping cart and wait til August, when it will all happen for real.

Well, now that you got sad about that, I am not sure if the Deluxe CRB was English by Paizo or was that a special edition by one of translating distributors. I just am 99% sure that I did hold a faux leather Patfhfinder CRB in my tentacle-straps :)


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

I don't think that was a Paizo book.


Pathfinder Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Subscriber

At only $20 over the normal book, this seems like a no-brainer if you want a dead-tree copy.

Alas, my days of buying RPG books in print look to be over. On the bright side, the super-reasonable $10 PDF means I'm still on board for many of the Starfinder accessories. :-)

That was from our German partner, Ulisses Spiele; you can see it here.

We did actually print a tiny, tiny quantity of gold-foiled Core Rulebook and Bestiary Special Editions in 2009—fewer than 100 copies each—but we didn't sell them. Most of them went to employees, and we contributed a few to charity auctions. You can read about them here and see them here.

Well, with $79,99 for the book and $22,99 for the AP you qualify for the $10 discount on shipping, so it'll be only like $45-ish :P.

That said, I fully expect to be paying around 200 euro for this order, due to extra charges from VAT and customs, but I've resisted spending anything on the steam sales, so I have most of my gaming budget set aside for this (and some extra from the backpay of my raise).
