Well written with a nice twist at the end.

What would the stats be for TOS red shirts?

Wayfinders

Man, that deck looks like so much fun! I am really looking forward to this coming out and I know GMs will be grabbing this and wearing them out.

Wayfinders

I think it would need to be errataed but seems reasonable as we have torpedoes that can be launched and then will lock onto their target.

Wayfinders

I would like to see an uplifted raccoon and duck. I have Rocket and Howard minis that would be fun to play.

Well, I hope it works but being one of those who detests Alexa, it does nothing for me.

Wayfinders

Thank you both!

Wayfinders

Thank you both for these answers. So the CRB would be appropriate to have and refer to on a rule question, but grabbing the Alien Archives to look up the critter isn't if you are a player? Correct?

Wayfinders

Okay, I am a relative Noob to RPGing but an experienced gamer. On a Game like Battletech a player can have any of the sourcebooks handy during games and it is acceptable, not considered meta-gaming. The other night while playing Starfinder, a creature was mentioned and I remembered it from being in Alien Archive, which I had in my backpack. I was not trying to be a jerk, and did not realize that some people would consider this meta. The GM was cool, realized I wasn't trying to be a jerk and said how some people might be offended. Okay, well and good. But what is allowed, what is not, what is legal but being a "that guy meta type"? Thanks

Wayfinders

Joseph Wilson, thanks!

@thecursor do you mean the Wacky Hacky Akkies?

Oay, I'll let myself out...

A book with all the starship designs and some new ones?

Don't forget Howard the Duck.

Yoshua, thank you for explaining things more in depth.

I am not involved in this KS in any way, but I am seeing a lot of disappointed folks with legitimate gripes towards ND spilling frustration over at Archon and Paizo. Ninja was the one who screwed both the consumers and Paizo over. Look at the damage that has been done to Paizo's reputation over this. NO company wants that, so they did the best thing they could and got another company to step up. Are a lot of folks having to wait and perhaps pay extra to get their final product? Yup, but you are still going to get it. Look at how many Kickstarters go bust completely and folks have no recourse but to chalk it up to complete loss. It seems Archon is thee one who is blameless in this, hopefully folks will see that and direct the [deserved] ire at ND who created this mess.

I would consider like the AED units in public places. It is there with instructions/automated so anyone can use them. A trained Paramedic can't get any more out of it than someone who never touched one before.

Wayfinders

There is a big difference in carrying something and shoving a file cabinet around. 2 totally different things. If you throw someone over your shoulder to get them out of the line of fire, you can move but obviously not quickly or for a huge distance. But pushing an object can be done in several different ways. For example, a lot of stores use cardboard balers for empty boxes. The bales come out weighing a few hundred pounds. One or two people can scoot or flop/roll them a short distance but it is slow going. So your characters could move something like that 1 square per full turn to make a barricade or try to take it with them.

Wayfinders

I am still a newer player and I was given very good advice on what to start with from the folks here.
First, the PDFS are GREAT!
Core Rule Book
Armory or COM next
Then any of the Alien Archives for fun and the Pact Worlds for flavor and fun
Look at fleabay for the Iconic Mini packs, they can be found cheap there. Welcome to the forum and good gaming to you!

Wayfinders

150. GW decided to revise the Codex

Wayfinders

This would be a "ready" character, as my group is just doing Society right now. Dr. Tortellini would use a ranged weapon, doing his best to stay out of melee and being strictly a support type character. I am debating between him and a Pahtra Solarian.

Wayfinders

Thank you all for the efforts you have put into this. It is appreciated!

I assume we'll sell them as individual PDFs in 2021, each a year after it's available as part of the 52-in-52 program. But I could be wrong.

But the only guaranteed way to have access is is to pick up the whole program, which is currently just $29.95 for more than 550 total pdfs.

If I hadn't just been hit with 3 major Kickstarters [Starship 4, Clan Invasion and Reaper Bones 5] I would have grabbed it!

So if you want to play Society and AP you really need to have two characters?

I am of the opinion that you should create as many society characters as you can get away with actually playing and GMing for, plus one. One of the biggest strengths of OP is the ability to try out different playstyles/concepts while still feeling like you are contributing to a singular overall goal. There are a handful of scenarios that give you benefits for all your characters or for some character other than the one you played the scenario with, so you benefit from a breadth of characters.

That being said, if you GM a lot, you can get away with applying your society and AP credit to the same character really far in advance with almost no risk. I think dying in someone's very first game at level 2 was a pretty big fluke. While all of the scenarios have risks and you can always run into a string of really bad dice rolls, most of the low-level stuff and most GM's running for low-level characters have kid gloves on and pull their punches.

I happen to prefer playing in more deadly games over less deadly ones, but that isn't the norm. My single favorite experience in SFS so far was when Thursty killed my 5th level Envoy. But, since everyone's here to have fun and most people don't consider dying fun, most of the time everyone tries to avoid it.

Well, I am so new, GMing is still in the distance. But, thank you for clearing this up for a new guy!

I'd say that it's a bit safer to not assign credit into the far future of a character.

Also, these scenarios are rather the exception for deadliness. Unlucky..

Okay, thanks! It does give me an excuse to try out a different style character. [I'm thinking of a Telia Mystic Healer]

Wayfinders

Maybe we could see a PDF with all the AP deck plans and spec sheets? That would be a lot of fun and very useful.

Watch for ZO!s newest series Battlestar Golaria!
So, Golarion isn't missing, it just got turned into a space ship to travel the cosmos? *ahem*

No, it's shortened name of the ship. It's official name is "The Timeless Battlestar of the Noble, Tireless, Fearless, Bearded Questors on the Lifetime, Eternal Search for the Lost Promised, Glorious Realms Graced by Sarenrae of Golaria"

Even ZO! refuses to use the full name.

The show tonight was really interesting. Wish we would have had more time to hear about the new Starship book coming next year.

Wayfinders

YAY! I do love starships!

And now they are adding big tracks to make it look like a Jawa Sandcrawler!

They list Society Legal Material in the Additional Resources accessible from the Starfinder Society page on this very site.

Alright! Thank you!

Wayfinders

Okay noob question time. I see where the COM is not usable yet in Society events, correct? That as new material is released, it is not automatically Accepted for those games. SO what books/pdfs/other stuff is currently usable/approvedd for Society play? Thanks

Wayfinders

I wonder if the simplest answer is simply that it should have been listed a 10' diameter blast. A simple typo slip would be easy to make on a description of such a complex ability. It also would make the rule easy to play.

Wayfinders

What if you used a type of "brass knuckles" as a handguard instead of the knife? You could make it either bludgeoning or slashing?

Wayfinders

They have just added a new low price entry and a starfighter!

If this idea doesn't make it into an AP, they are missing a bet for the most fun since Live Exploration Extreme!

Thanks for posting this! The tips on the Renkrodas were great! They are delicious!

Wayfinders

Hiya folks, I need some advice. I have a couple of minis from a Reaper Kickstarter that are extremely sharp, but need a way to run them in SF.
the Thunderfoot Commander 49006
and the Bloodcrest Sharshooter 49005
I am already using the Blacktooth Suppressor for my Vesk Kotoro but I would like to use these guys as well. I think the Thunderfoot could be a pretty neat Nuar, but it's just not quite there. Any other race suggestions, 3rd Party are welcome as well.
Thanks!

Wayfinders

Necroing this thread but Bug from Heroclix might be a good option.

Wayfinders

You could use the Nuar's combined weapon rules from Alien Archive.

@metaphysician we need Professor Gorkmork as an Iconic Character!

Wayfinders

Well Alien Archive has the official stuff on the Space Goblins but basically picture throwing 6 alley cats into a room full of antique velvet furniture and 3 Jack Russell Terriers...

Wayfinders

Thanks for a fun read!

Wayfinders

Oh, I will be glad to do one up. I didn't know if there was one already in existence. I will make it up to use on the drone and a larger one to put on the dugout for my Bloodbowl team. It can go right next to the Wolf Whiz Ale [It's in the water]banner.

Wayfinders

Does Poshkettle Tea have a logo? I would love to do a Sponsor Decal for my Mechanic's Drone.
