Hi, Customer Service - this thread was designed to be the discussion thread for the campaign at http://paizo.com/campaigns/SFSGM857401QUESTIntoTheUnknownPart128AUG2017Tabl e2, but it never linked correctly. Can you help me get it properly aligned? Thank you!


Hi, everyone: Since the other one won't link, and I haven't heard from customer service yet, I'm just going to create a new thread here for Discussion.

Do any of you not yet own a copy of the Starfinder Rulebook? Not a problem if you don't, just checking. Thanks!

I've got mine.


Male Shirren Mystic 4: EAC/KAC:16, Fort:3, Ref:2, Will:8, SP:28/28, HP;30/30, RP:6/6, Init:1, Perc:11, blindsense

Just got mine less than a week ago. Combat is pretty much the same, character creation is not, but we are playing with pregens.


Male Shirren Mystic 4: EAC/KAC:16, Fort:3, Ref:2, Will:8, SP:28/28, HP;30/30, RP:6/6, Init:1, Perc:11, blindsense

Where is the SFS starfinder rules. I have Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide version 8.0 dated August 8th, 2016, but nothing about Starfinder or if PFS has a new guide, since that one is over a year old.

Just saw this on a FAQ for the first wave of releases:

Item #2 (Errata): The statistics for the Loreseeker (primarily the AC / TL) are incorrect and use some old data that accidentally made it to publishing. To fix this, use the Tier 2 Pegasus stats as detailed on page 40 of the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide.

Here's the Tier 2 Pegasus stats they mention:

Medium explorer
Speed 10; Maneuverability good (turn 1); Drift 1
AC 12; TL 12 (was AC 13; TL 13)
HP 55; DT —; CT 11
Shields basic 40 (forward 10, port 10, starboard 10, aft 10)
Attack (Forward) light laser cannon (2d4)
Attack (Port) light laser cannon (2d4)
Attack (Starboard) light laser cannon (2d4)
Attack (Turret) coilgun (4d4)
Power Core Pulse Green (150 PCU); Drift Engine Signal Basic;
Systems basic medium-range sensors, crew quarters
(good), mk 1 duonode computer, mk 2 armor, mk 2 defenses;
Expansion Bays cargo hold, escape pods, science lab,
tech workshop
Modifiers +1 to any two checks per round, +2
Computers, +1 Piloting; Complement 4–7

Only difference is the lower AC/TL, and the addition of +1 to any two checks per round.


Nice - thanks for the update!

Sorry for my delay here on keeping us going, just wanted to make sure y'all were settled for roles and then some family things came up. Moving ahead now...

Hi everyone, sorry for the delay! I've now merged the two discussion threads, so you should be all set.

Apologies all. Still on the road and internet is spotty. I'll be able to update tomorrow evening.

Um, I dealt 8 damage to it, but it dealt 13 damage to us. If the enemy ship is suppose to deal more damage on average vs what we do, then how does Paizo believe this fight to be winnable?


Male Outsider (native) Gamer 15 / DM 7 / Author 4

Aleon, don't forget you can use the 'open fire' maneuver to fire more than one gun at it, doing more damage (WAY more damage) than just firing a single weapon. since we have a turret mounted gun you can always fire at least two guns with any firing arc that has at least one in it already.


Male Shirren Mystic 4: EAC/KAC:16, Fort:3, Ref:2, Will:8, SP:28/28, HP;30/30, RP:6/6, Init:1, Perc:11, blindsense

Yes, but it says -4 penalty to each gun when you fire two. And the turret can't be fired with the lasers right? So it is either 2d4+2d4 or 4d4.


Your maneuverability is also significantly better than that of the Endless Threnody, and a successful scan goes a long way to help figure out a good strategy.

@Aleon: I looked over the starship combat section of the CRB, and there's nothing I can see prohibiting turrets from firing alongside fixed weapon mounts.


Sorry to not respond earlier - Rez has this correct, you can fire both a turret and a fixed-mount weapon on the same round.

You are also correct about the -4 to hit. It can be a significant impairment against high ac targets.

The only problem with PbP is the lack of minis to obsess over. :D

HeroForge scratches that itch, though.

Sorry, I am having trouble with my internet - specifically, it died, so I am frantically trying to use a wifi hotspot and my 3G phone to post apology updates...


No worries! Do what you've got to, and let me know if I should bot you.


Hi, all. I'm on the road tonight, and won't be able to update. Will post tomorrow afternoon or evening. Thanks!


Sorry all, lots of travel today. Hoping to update tomorrow!


Male Outsider (native) Gamer 15 / DM 7 / Author 4

If possible, when this is all over, can I get the new SFS boon sheet signed off on for the Alien Archive races?


Male Shirren Mystic 4: EAC/KAC:16, Fort:3, Ref:2, Will:8, SP:28/28, HP;30/30, RP:6/6, Init:1, Perc:11, blindsense

There is a boon if we purchased Alien Archive? I didn't see it.


Yes, it was just in a blog post. Sure, I'll take a look at it and see what I can do! :)


Rez - my mistake, it's actually supposed to be the Tier 4 Odyssey that you flew in on. Mea culpa!


Sorry all - website problems have thrown me for a loop, and am just catching up now. Will post more tomorrow.


Male Shirren Mystic 4: EAC/KAC:16, Fort:3, Ref:2, Will:8, SP:28/28, HP;30/30, RP:6/6, Init:1, Perc:11, blindsense

Still waiting on somebody?


Sorry, all. Ended up being out of town. Updating now!


Male Shirren Mystic 4: EAC/KAC:16, Fort:3, Ref:2, Will:8, SP:28/28, HP;30/30, RP:6/6, Init:1, Perc:11, blindsense

Ah, gotcha Rez, post after you do. I never thought about the idea that posting out of order could cause unintentional metagaming.
But technically speaking that could be said about any post on pbp that doesn't follow exact init count, like the fighter goes after the cleric but both before the enemy, so the fighters hit does hit and deals dmg as he ends up posting before the cleric, so the cleric does a burning hands or something to finish off the enemy instead of healing the fighter. That being said, I'll wait for Rez.
Edit: or put them in spoilers.

FYI: There was a change made to Starship Combat DCs. Not sure how much this will affect us. I guess we should just continue what we are doing but in any case:

I can't tell at a glance what's different, but it seems that the DC dropped from 15+ to 10+?

Most DCs went from X + (Ship_Tier * 2) to X + (Ship_Tier * 1.5)

Tier 2 ships' DCs drop by 1 (X+2*2 = X+4), (X+2*1.5 = X+3)
Tier 4 ships' drop by 2. (X+4*2 = X+8), (X+4*1.5 = X+6)
Tier 6 by 3, etc. (X+6*2 = X+12), (X+6*1.5 = X+9)

Yes that's what it looks like to me, the thread where I pulled this from was talking about higher level scenarios still it seems they pulled back on several DCs which is fine for me. Especially at the lower levels.


Male Outsider (native) Gamer 15 / DM 7 / Author 4

Excellent.
I will inform my IRL group. I wonder if they're going to include the changed DC's in a later version of the print copy.


Thanks for sharing! Let’s go ahead and finish the combat with these updated DCs. Please make sure to post the DCs you are rolling against, to help me keep track, but mostly it’ll be vs. DC 16 or 21.


Just wanted to drop a quick reminder that I need to get a cert for the first part. Cheers!
