Alien Invasion

Outer space is full of alien species both benign and malevolent. Starfinder Alien Archive 2 presents a host of new creatures designed for use with the Starfinder Roleplaying Game! From the laser-breathing tashtaris and starship-eating stellar protozoans to dust mantas and undead bone troopers, the creatures in this codex will challenge adventurers no matter where in the galaxy they may travel. What's more, player rules for a variety of species let players not just fight aliens, but be them! Inside this book, you'll find the following:

  • Over 100 bizarre life-forms both classic and new, from the voracious akatas and silicon-based quorlus to radioactive pluprex demons and void-dwelling vermin.
  • More than a dozen races with full player rules, letting you play everything from an uplifted bear to a sentient slug.
  • New alien technology to help give your character an edge, including armor, weapons, magic items, and spells.
  • New rules for magical polymorphing, environmental template grafts to modify creatures to fit any world on the fly, and more!

Will this reprint the Alien Archive sections from Dead Suns 1-6 (like the Pathfinder Bestiaries reprinted creatures from older AP volumes)?

A few creatures from Dead Suns will appear in Alien Archive 2, but not all. More AP creatures will likely be reprinted in later Alien Archive hardbacks, as with Pathfinder APs and Bestiaries.

Thank you for the answer, Robert.

I imagine that Akatas, Bone Troopers, Driftdead, Void Zombies and the playable races Elebrians, Kish, Ferrans, Ghibranis, Ilthisarians, Scypozoans, Selamids and Seprevois are good to have in a handy hardcover Bestiary volume. ;-)

Let's start wondering about the description, shall we?

Quote:
Want to play an intelligent, multi-legged centipede? An emotionless, mask-wearing mollusk? and Uplifted Bear?

Not gonna lie, I want to take that "uplifted bear" and make a character called "Yogi" or run around yelling "only you can prevent forest fires". Can't wait to see them.

...

Winston, who lives under the name Mr. Saunders.

Please let there be a cat race in this one.... you have them in the lore of being in the veskarium. I really wanna see the cat race.

That would be cool...

Are these uplifted bears bipedal humanoid aliens (a la how rats are to ysoki) or are these more just literally genetically modified super-intelligent bears

They’re bears what have smarts!

So...the second one? Now I'm even more confused...

I think we need to see Xenomorph or something similar.

Agreed. A Starfinder update of the hive (see Pathfinder's Horror Adventures) would be great to see.

Yes, more Kucharn/Swarm creatures please!

While I would be all for more Swarm stuff, I do have to say that the Hive is different from the Swarm.

The Swarm are insect-like monstrous humanoid creatures bound to the hive mind.

The Hive are aberrations that are basically xenomorphs with swarming larvae instead of a face hugger.

Granted, you don't want either knocking at your door but one is more Starship Troopers, the other is more Alien.

Oooh Shiny! there are some cool looking aliens on there. Im really curious about the spectral goblin looking thing. Very nice!


Ooooohhh. A Trox and Mi-Go on the cover! I think this artwork a lot. I'm excited! We've got cover art for all the "Core" books that they have announced now, right?


TROX!!!!! I love those damned bugs so much I’m glad there making a return! Also Mi-Go...maybe playable and some kind of Gremlin by the looks of it.


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

I love Trox! I wonder if Mi-Go will be considered part of the Unseen conspiracy, considering their knack for infiltrating societies and abducting people. I adore their artwork. Pathfinder/Starfinder's design for this creature is simply the best across all of Lovecraftverse, methinks. And I'm getting real Gremlin vibes out of that ghosty creature.

Will this book have any new summons (or maybe even familiars)?

Has there been any talk about how Polymorphing is going to work in SF? Anything from Gencon, perhaps?

I also heard rumors that someone mentioned that domesticated pet mechanics will be introduced in this one? Or was that baseless?

Squirrel Foxes will have mechanics to have them as pets. There is no mention of general rules for domesticated pets if that was what you were wondering.
