Starfinder in PFS--thoughts


Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild

Shadow Lodge ****

First of all this is not about crunch, at least I don't think it is. But reading through the Starfinder rpg, I got an idea for a PFS character built in a way that suggests they are a "prototype" of something in the Starfinder verse.

And since I know I won't be only one (but I can claim it first!) to think such thoughts I thought it might be worthwhile to start a discussion on the subject.

How much "crossover" of ideas do you want, both from Paizo and from players? What is your acceptable in your mind, and what is not in the context of PFS?

My idea btw

Spoiler:
is an Oracle whose behavior and a few other things suggest she may be an aspect of Waylan; the CG deity who breaks off pieces of himself and then crafts that piece into a mortal of any species or sex to live in the world, free from the responsibilities of godhood. Wouldn't worship a Starfinder diety. Was born in the usual way etc but has ties to something... unknown.

Oracles aren't required to select a deity, so you can claim your power comes from anywhere that doesn't give you a mechanical advantage.

I've been thinking of doing the opposite - playing an android in SFS who is in the body of the android I'll be playing in Iron Gods starting later this year. This, of course, requires me to have faith in my ability to keep that character alive throughout the campaign...

But how do you feel about such things?

As I stated this is more about SFS and PFS fluff crossing over, especially since with SF, in a sense we now "know" the future.

Will it annoy you, make you laugh, or something else.

What Minna mentioned (and which I think is very cool) is the kind of thing I'm talking about.

I'm considering an Android in SFS that is re-using the soul of one of my PFS characters.

I still say Drandle Dreng is going to show up as an android in SFS. And it turns out that he was an android all along.

Not really on topic but not worth its own thread: It is in fact legal to play, say, Iron Gods using Starfinder (Campaign Mode) and then apply the sheets to your Pathfinder Society characters. You can even do it core!

I've been toying with having my ratfolk in PFS claim to be an Ysoki.

I was under the impression that Ysoki was the ratfolk's name for their race in their native tongue.

It's the name for their race on Akiton if memory serves. On different worlds they have different names, it's just by the time Starfinder rolls around, they had the most numerous population, so they kind of won by default.

Drandle Dreng is not an android.

Yet, only because the PFS has not stolen/acquired the proper tech/magic.

This is crossover in the other direction, but here goes. "I am Stavian IX! My parents tell me that we were once an important family in a political entity called Taldor, though we aren't certain what that is any more since Golarian is lost. I call upon stellar forces and the glory of Iomedae to wield a glowing blue falcata."
