Question for GMs out there. Do you have one PBP event code that you use for all your games? Or do you set up a new event code for each game?

I do, though my modus operandi is changing with the new handling for the online region. I still curate a fair number of games, so I have "my PbP" for those, and the online region one for public games.

I created an event in 2016, for my first GMed game, and have never changed since.
I report tabletop, convention (unless they want me to use their event number), and online games with that one number.

I generally report all underneath the same code unless it is dealing with some sort of con or the now upcoming OSP.


Was one code, now with OSP I will have to change.

Female Short Kitsune Oracle

Howdy all! A question:

As part of the latest Humble Bundle, I now have found myself in possession of the Starfinder rulebook. While my interest in aliens with lasers isn't amazingly high, my interest in fighter pilot antics is off the charts.

That in mind, I've been considering signing up for SFS (although if I understand correctly, it enforces single-craft-for-the-whole-party style space combat). While this doesn't let me pull kulbits in a nice, sleek Interceptor, I still wouldn't mind making a character whose focus is Piloting (Skill Focus and the whole shebang) and all things related to it.

Problem is, I'm not certain how saturated that market is. Am I the 49857347437th person who would have a character like this (and therefore there would be a lot of competition for the pilot's chair), or would my character's ability to outmaneuver any incoming fire be a welcome blessing?


SFS Signup sheet

Yes...and no. SFS makes it easy for someone to excel in multiple roles, so there is usually always a decent pilot in any given group. However, there are many other roles to play, so it's not like every group will have 3 pilots. In the last few tables I have run, there has been a pilot in each group, but only 1 had more than one in it.

Also, usually there is a little "okay who's playing what role" discussion before you embark, and you'll have the chance to make your pitch why you should be the pilot. Typically, "I have the highest bonus" is a good argument :)

The real concern for you should be more along the lines of "what do I do if I'm not in the pilot's chair?" There is relatively little space combat in SFS, and it's usually no more than 1/3 of any given scenario. So if the piloting is all you are interested in, perhaps there in another angle in the roleplaying or out-of-combat aspects that might entice you. Otherwise, I feel you may be disappointed with the little piloting you get to do, and your teammates will suffer from the out-of-work, half-drunk pilot that shuffles with them from NPC to NPC, trying to impress everyone they meet with stories of the halcyon days when pilots really meant something to the galaxy, you know?

Liberty's Edge

If you are talking about characters playing here, on the Paizo PbP boards, you will mostly be playing with 5 other people, so it should not be a problem.
Personally, I've often seen a couple characters with good ranks in piloting in a team, but never two who went all out into that.
So I do not think you'd not be able to pilot.
Also, most have at least a couple skills they are okay in, for Space Combat, so can take another position.
Be sure to go for games with the Starship Combat tag (just ask if it has it).
You can look for campaigns too, in which you can co-create your own starship.
Have fun!
Fly safe...


Female Short Kitsune Oracle

I appreciate the response! Thorough!

Naturally, I'd be angling primarily for scenarios with a little starship symbol on 'em, but outside of that 1/3 or so, I'll make sure that I have some use, even if it's primarily "skill monkey" (since I've been eyeing the Operative class).

That said, I'm not going to pretend my character won't be waxing poetic about how it's really a shame that computers have taken half the fun out of carefully maneuvering behind an enemy pilot and watching their engines light up with impact from twin-mounted flakkers.

I'll probably be putting in an ace pilot in the near...-ish future then.

The good news is that all great pilots also make great gunners, so you'll always have something to do. My advice is to build for the whole game. There are a lot of interesting operative specialties, and I've had fun building three of them.

★ --- ★ --- ★ --- ★

This one is ♫ Na nana na nana Bat Elf! ♫ a detective icon crime fighter. My back story for Bat Elf is that she's an elf that went insane after losing her childhood to the Gap, and had a complete personality breakdown before she reenvisioned herself as Bat Elf. She's a released mental patient with her own crime fighting show and is followed around by Alfred, her android butler / cameraman / home health care aide.

I like Bat Elf because her crime fighting focus really fits in well with most Starfinder scenarios, and having key skills of culture and sense motive has been pretty useful. Plus I get to pull out all sorts of great bat gear! Yes, she pilots. But she also does lots of other things too.

"Miss Apastron, er, Bat Elf's therapy is coming along nicely!" Alfred nods with approval. "Come back tomorrow for another exciting adventure."

Agreed! As for your question...I shamelessly stole something from the GM that ran it for me a while back...

(Link) This map really helped us

As for the GM to give credit...sorry but I'm forgetting who the genius was at this time...

Edit: GM Fuzzfoot was who I stole it from.

'Welcome to the crew!' echoes in your head. 'While I personally have a hard enough time opening the airlock, it's quite nice to have such a friendly pilot along!'


Heaps of spots on for the pbp con coming up.

Otherwise I’ll probably open up a session or two but it looked like there was No demand at the moment with all those games running.

I have a backlog of scenarios to run.

I had COMPLETELY forgotten about OutPost, since I wasn’t signing up for my Pathfinder characters this time. Thanks!

ok, so I don't think they have converted tieflings just yet.

they have some conversion rules, but I can't find any conversion rules to convert a race.

so, I ask you all
help me find some converted Tiefling character race base stats, or help me find conversion rules so that I can convert the tiefling race to Starfinder. or at the very least help me find an alternative to tieflings, at least stat wise, and racial order wise if possible.


Venture Lieutenant, Play by Post (online), Hostess of Cottonseed Lodge (playtest)

Tieflings are found on pages 98-99 of Alien Archive 2. They are not available in SFS without a boon.


Heart of the Foe | Pact World Warriors | The Commencement | Portent's Peril

Alternatively, you can also find the rules for building tieflings (and aasimars) on Archives of Nethys.

Here

As Redelia said, though, you would need a boon to play either of those races for SFS.


Venture Captain, Play-by-Post "Doom Girl" // PbP Events // PBP Gameday VIII Player Signups // PbP GM Kit // Aeon Throne MapsPlayer Folder // Pact World Warriors //

Are you GMing SFS for Outpost II? The Online Region's convention boon this year is either Dragonkin or Planar Scion (aasimar or tiefling.) We will have the same boon as a GM reward for PBP Gameday VIII in the fall.

Hmm


Male Half-wolf (half anthro wolf) N/A

no, just a player.

and as for the boon needed
what is this boon?


1 person marked this as a favorite.
Heart of the Foe | Pact World Warriors | The Commencement | Portent's Peril

In Paizo's organized play programs, special boons are awarded that grant access for players to create characters of a race usually not allowed by the organized play rules. In SFS, these are frequently titled something like (Special Race X) Admittance. As HMM mentioned, this year, Paizo is giving out a boon to play as a Dragonkin or a Planar Scion to individuals who GM games at online conventions like the Outpost II convention beginning next week or the Gameday VIII convention happening in the fall. As far as I know, the only way you can gain one of these boons would be to GM at one of these conventions, or possibly for someone to trade one to you.

Hope that's helpful!


Male Half-wolf (half anthro wolf) N/A

yes and no
IDK anyone that would have one
and I do have a 701 boon though if anyone wants it XD.

...

so if I can't play a Planar Scion
what is the closest thing to play to a tiefling allowed by SFS?


Venture Captain, Play-by-Post "Doom Girl" // PbP Events // PBP Gameday VIII Player Signups // PbP GM Kit // Aeon Throne MapsPlayer Folder // Pact World Warriors //

What about the Tiefling appeals to you? Tell me about what you want, and maybe we can help you capture the flavor. The races that are always available are currently core + legacy, but there are a plethora of themes that can evoke dark pasts.

Your 701 boon is not tradeable, alas. Everyone is allowed the welcome to starfinder boon for their first character.

Here's hoping we can find you something you want to play!

Dragonkin? The fates are really conspiring to make me run a game...

Would I just have to run one during Gameday for the boon or would I have to run multiples?
