rare races?


Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild


Think any of the rare races from pfs - like kitsune or tiefling
will ever be in starfinder ?

None of the rare races are currently in Starfinder (good riddance!) and if they're ever released, it'll be years down the line.

Define rare race. Kasatha were in the Advanced Race Guide. Androids were also in Pathfinder.

There will almost assuredly be Pathfinder "rare" races in Starfinder and I doubt it will take years more like weeks. Some of the 20+ races in Alien Archive will very likely be ones we saw in Pathfinder. One of them, I would bet, will be Shobhad which was a Pathfinder race.

There's also catfolk (although not sure if they're actually "Catfolk") on Vesk 6 which might be in Alien Archive. I could go on, but you get the idea.

Will there be a lot of races unique to Starfinder? Absolutely. Will there be a lot of races that were in Pathfinder that get ported over, almost assuredly.

Considering these are the Starfinder Society forums, and the question was specifically directed at SFS, I'm quite confident when I say it'll take years. Maybe a little less with boons.

Any new races added via the bestiary or splat books won't be legal for a very long time.

Considering there are already 3 races available via boon from the splat books, I would say that's wrong and chances are good they'll be another splat race available in less than 3 months for the Q2 GM boon. They've very much said they are going for a cantina feel for Starfinder, so I think you'll actually see MORE races available and quicker to play via boon than in PFS.

You're almost certainly right, DE. The first several races to be featured in boons will be non-human pathfinder-core races, I'm almost certain. That should keep people happy for a year or two.

There are GM boons for the Haan and Sarcesian. There are GM boons for the Legacy races (I traded mine, so I know at least one such boon is in the hands of someone who doesn't GM). I believe a boon for the Contempletive was auctioned at GenCon. As Shaudius said, there should be another race boon available to GMs in a few months (and I'm guessing that it would be one from Alien Archive). I believe the rate of new races being opened for play in Starfinder will be similar to the rate they're currently opened for Pathfinder. I just hope Eoxian is opened sooner than later.

I would not be surprised, and quite happy in fact, to see Catfolk sooner than later. If I remember correctly there is a World in the Veskarium that specifically mentions Catfolk.

If they are going for a cantina feel, it would be nice to see race boons that players can access.

That said....bring on the Catfolk

I look forward for the expansion of playable races. Not only for the fun of playing fun new options, but also to go on missions with lots of different races. I hope that the writers actually have race influence responses by NPCs and such.

And now I have the song from the opening credits stuck in my head.
