The Starfinder Character Operations Manual expands the universe of what is possible for characters of any class or race, providing new choices at every stage of character creation and advancement. Whether you are a veteran or new to the game, there's something there for you!
Now, retailers have their print copies, subscription PDF and print copies have been sent, and non-subscription PDFs are available for purchase. The new Starfinder Character Operations Manual has hit the streets. For your convenience (and because showing off my co-workers’ brillance is my favorite part of my work), I have bent time and space to gather the previews, with their vivid science-fantasy art, all in one place! #talentcrush
First, we introduced the new iconic characters in our Meet The Iconics series. Subsequently, in our Iconic Encounters web-based flash fiction series, we received a glimpse into the life and personality of each of them. Developer Jason Keely put Barsala, a.k.a. “Dr. B,” the new iconic biohacker centerstage. Then we saw Barsala test a hypothesis in The Scientific Method. Managing Director Amanda Hamon manifested Zemir, the iconic witchwarper. Later, she revealed more about Zemir in The Reality Next Door. Lead Designer Joe Pasini shown the spotlight on Velloro, the iconic vanguard. And then he showed Velloro in entropic action in A Hail Of Bullets.
In Starfinder Wednesday! on our OfficialPaizo Twitch channel, Social Media Producer Payton Smith got interactive with the new classes. Most of the Starfinder team, including Jason Keeley, Joe Pasini, Amanda Hamon, and Creative Director Rob McCreary, sat down together and—with the live assistance of chat— built a biohacker, a vanguard, and a witchwarper. All the Starfinder Wednesday! videos have been archived on YouTube for you to watch now, with one possible exception. This week’s episode showcased the New Roles Starship Combat, and it is currently available as Video on Demand on Twitch at the time of posting. If you have been lost in space, then it is on YouTube too!
In our final preview blog articles, we explored alternate ability score adjustments, racial traits, and new feats, gear, and class options that are available to everyone in Character Operations Manual Preview: Race Options by Jason “Jake” Tondro, Starfinder Developer. We previewed the new feats and class features in Classing Things Up With Starfinder's Newest Book by John Compton, Starfinder Senior Developer. And we introduced you to a new mode of play in System Of A Downtime by Joe Pasini.
All 160 pages of the hardcover Starfinder Character Operations Manual are available today at your favorite local game, book, comic shop, online retailer, and here at paizo.com. We’d love to hear what you think on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, YouTube, and our Starfinder Forums.
