All Hands on Deck!

Don't worry, the skittermanders are here to help!

When a routine salvage operation deep in the Vast goes awry, the skittermanders Dakoyo, Gazigaz, Nako, and Quonx must board a luxurious cruise liner controlled by a rogue artificial intelligence to save their vesk boss and a group of hapless passengers. All manner of obstacles block their path to success, from malfunctioning massage tables to cybernetic undead to vermin from another plane, but if the skittermanders can work together (something skittermanders do best), they are sure to be hailed as tiny, furry heroes! That is, of course, if the passing pirate starship doesn't blast them all out of space first...

In addition to this exciting adventure, this book includes four pregenerated characters that are ready to play, with full stat blocks and backstories. The inside back cover also holds a wealth of information that will help you roleplay the six-armed creatures, such as their species' thoughts on food, religion, and how to relate to other cultures, as well as examples of skittermander slang.

Skitter Shot is an adventure for four skittermander characters who are eager to help those in need and explore a seemingly abandoned starship, written for the wildly popular Starfinder Roleplaying Game.

What level is this and who is the author?

No Space Goblin adventure? ;-)

Skittermanders are the new ewoks goblins.


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

IIRC, the various WBG scenarios had semi-official (or even all-the-way official) 'extra' Goblin pregens made available, sometimes by the developers, allowing up to 6 people to play at once.
Any chance of that happening here?

Mainly asking for SFS, since obviously GMs can make their own extra Skitters in home games.

Shouldn’t this be under Starfinder/Modules not Starfinder/Rulebooks?

I am hoping to run this at my local store to generate more interest in RPGs in general. However, since he is mostly a MtG and Comic book store, he will not be purchasing a kit for Free RPG day this year. Is there any way that I can get a PDF copy prior to Free RPG day for both scenarios, so that I can print/bind/ and prep all the maps? Is this going to be available to VCs that have GMs that will run the scenario to generate interest? My VC is aware of the situation and stated he will try and help out.

It'd be awesome if a PDF including chronicle sheets and the 4 pregen PCs can be posted early.

I'd like to have laminated PC sheets for players sitting down for the demo, and obviously we should have chronicle sheets pre-printed.

So how much time are the Free RPG Day mods expected to run? Its the first time my game store has participated but the owner wants all RPGs ran to last only 2 hours to maximize the number of people participating. But I argued that 3 hours would be better for the mods that come out that day.

While i will only get the Skitter Shot module next week, from gamemastering experience of the "We be Goblins" modules, unexperienced players will need about 4 to 5 hours to play through the entire module.

Experienced Pathfinder players can do it in 3h, but 2h seems impossible to me.

As soon as i get this, i'll testplay it with my group, i will post the needed time here afterwards. :-)


So goblins and skittermanders for Free RPG Day, eh?

I would say Marco Massoudi's assessment of time is spot on.

Another thing that can make these run a bit longer is that while they get Organized Play sanctioning, they still are formatted as a standard module. That means there isn't nearly as much box text or "If the PC's ask the following..." elements to help streamline a session. Since this is the first Starfinder Free RPG Day offering, that may have changed but historically, that's how they have been presented.


Is it replayable?

Please tell me that when the chronicle sheet comes out for this, there will be a boon called "Skittermander Admittance"! :-)

The only thing that "We be Goblins" did far superior is having great individual minis available - we don't even have different Skittermander adults pawns in the Alien Archives box - there are six which look exacly the same - no different fur colors sadly.

Yeah, but it was years before we had We Be Goblin minis. Give it time. Plus, once you have the module its not that hard to make pawns for the Skittermanders. I did, it took me maybe an hour from scanning to finished pawn.

I just want to mention that even though I haven't seen the scenario yet..I'm liking what I'm seeing with the pregens and the sanctioning document


It seems there is a small error in the character sheets. The attack bonuses of tactical batons and survival knifes are wrong because they are operative weapons and should use the Dex bonus.


Starfinder Superscriber

I just read the chronicle sheet. Question: Does the Playing/GMing "An Entire Adventure Path Volume" mean all 6 parts of an AP, or just 1 part?

And if we're GMing either a scenario or the AP in 'Campaign Mode' does the GM sign it, or do we need to find a VO or something to sign on top of that (for the GM)? The line about the Event Coordinator is the part that's confusing. I think GM's can be their own Event Coordinators, but I'm not sure.

If GM's are allowed to sign their own boxes (for scenarios/APs they run), should they note the chronicle sheets that apply on this chronicle sheet?

Volume would be each book of an AP, not the entire AP. I believe it would need to be something "played for credit." So the person checking off the box on the chronicle here, would be the same one signing your chronicle for the AP. (Shouldn't matter if it is "campaign mode" as long as it is played "for credit" with the applicable rules for campaign mode)

Dark Archive

Also, I take it this is NOT an 'evergreen' adventure, despite the low level?

I know the "getting credit" portion says: once for GM, once for Player. But people will ask if there was supposed to be an exception... cue preemptive annoyance

Dark Archive

So I have a question does the GM get boxes for running Skittershot on Saturday.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

They'd get them if they GMd it multiple times. It specifies you don't get a box for the scenario you received the chronicle for. If they GMd in the morning, played it in the afternoon, then GMd it again in the evening they should get three or four boxes checked off. Depending on if they have rsp or not.


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

It actually looks like this one can never be applied while playing to this sheet per the wording of the boon but you could and do get it as a GM

• 1 box for playing 4 hours of quests, a scenario, or a 16-page module (not including this one)
• 2 boxes for playing an entire Adventure Path volume.
• 2 boxes for GMing 4 hours of quests, a scenario, or a 16-page module.
• 3 boxes for GMing an entire Adventure Path volume.
• 3 boxes for GMing at an event that received Paizo Event Support or a Regional Support Package.

The bold part is the only part saying when you cant get credit for it.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Subscriber

Scenario is yet to come, but in event reporting form there is its option - and there are still no such options for Dead Suns IV and V. How is that?


Two characters argue in front of a post with several notices nailed up, saying the name on the sheet behind the one they've just torn off.
"Rabbit Season!"
"Duck Season!"
"Rabbit Season!"
<beat>
Two characters look the remaining sheet hammered to the post and turn to the camera.
"Con Season!"

Any chance PDF's of the maps will also be released?

Sure... On July 1st

We'll we be able to aplly credits retroactively for this boon? I didn't see any dates restrictions like for eox elabrian boon.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Boons of this nature rarely allow you to retroactively check things off. I believe its safe to say that if it was going to allow that it would have included the wording in the boon itself, likewise it wouldn't have an issue of you checking a box for playing the scenario itself. Retroactive activated boons can cause unforeseen consequences.


Pathfinder Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Subscriber

They could have at least allowed GM credits to be applied retroactively.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

Why? One of the obvious goals of the boon is to get people to gm more.


Pathfinder Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Subscriber

Yeah, i agree.


I really like the art for the skittermanders in this. Way better than the Alien Archive.

Is this item going to be available to buy in print on the site? I had to work on FRPG day and was unable to get my own copy.
