That first cityscape wide shot. Wow. Apostae is looking a lot slicker than I would have thought.


Can't wait! Looks great!

I am super-pumped to get all the juicy lore out of this book. And the art looks fantastic, especially the Apostae landscape!


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Starfinder Superscriber

Yeah, Goblins should get shipped the book first, darn it!

We are your company mascot after all. :)

Looks good!

However, I think that the "Verces adventurer" and the "Security" pictures are swapped.

Apostae is Gorgeous!


That first pic looks amazing!

But then I looked closer... Are those people at the bottom? Aren't they too big for those buildings?


Starfinder Superscriber

It looks like they're significantly in the foreground and there are buildings next to them for scale. It looks right to me.

I think they are about right for the closest single-story buildings. Those buildings seem to have some shorter objects in front of them that can be confusing at first glance.

*nods*

They’re the right size for the stalls, then there’s the gap and the larger buildings on the other side. It’s probanly further away than it looks.

I hope I can get prints of Verces Adventurer and The Drift at some point.


Funny! The Arcanium Sage really looks like a Michtim; but I presume it's an Ysoki, isn't it?

Having received my PDF i have to say this is hands down by far my favorite Starfinder book to date. The wealth of info and useful character options makes it a must have period. Great stuff! I have high hopes for the armory book and what comes next.

I think they gave us a print quality (or near enough) PDF rather than a compressed one. The CRB is double the book length and has at least as much art but is a good 90mb less.

Wish I worked on it. It would be cool to work on a paizo product like this.

Love the book as well, best one to date. That said I appreciate that they are unique and distinctly different. Androids are not Robots nor are Robots Androids. I figured it would be a tough distinction to create in a player race but I feel like they handled it beautifully. I think it would have been a disservice to Androids, given their history in the lore, to have included them in a catch all Android / Robot race.

SORs are a very cool concept however I feel like they are currently the most OP race yet created. Still I really like the possibility provided by the race. I just felt like the heaped on way to many advantages / immunities and what they provided as supposed disadvantages are really not that disadvantageous at all. Still a great race though.

So you are saying we should welcome our new robot overlords?


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I do find it amusing that SROs are better at handling emotions and inter-personnel relations than androids. Just more proof of robot superiority over all things. And all of the concepts they open up; chappie, R2, 0-0-0, K2-S0, Robbie, Tom Servo!
