Okay, actual SMGs today require 2 hands to use. They use lighter ammunition which allows for more in a magazine. They gain a little extra velocity over a handgun because of slightly longer barrels.
Well, I went and bought a tablet just so I could have all the PDF books when playing Starfinder. But, being a dinosaur, I still like reading an actual book. So now I have wound up buying all of the hardbacks as well. They will stay at the house but I have to admit it seems a bit strange to have bothered to get them in both.
This^^^^ is a great idea! May I steal it?
with almost all the guides in the guide to the guides only having the core rulebook, can someone fill me in on the good options from the other books?
As a newer player myself, I asked this question last year and received plenty of good advice. Like as has been said previously, CRB first, then Armory. Coin flip between Pact Worlds and Alien Archive 1 next. COM is a lot of fun, but can be overwhelming at first. And the great thing is that all are available as PDFs, saving a lot of money.
Depends on how you play the game. Starfinder can accommodate either kind of player, however, the advantage of a sniper is their motto "One shot, one kill" is not easy to accomplish with this rules set. Also, a game based upon team actions does not lend itself as well to snipers, as they are trained to operate independently for extended periods of time and then strike without warning. This will make it difficult for a player to make this their primary focus and see a lot of action consistently.
in our game last night, we had two players with characters with high numbers for charisma and are very good at sweet talking other characters. My character is a Vesk soldier who has been nicknamed Groo by the rest of the team, you can understand why, and if he ever figures it out, he will be annoyed. But last night both our normally James Bond smooth operators failed EVERY attempt at convincing they tried, while Groo succeeded!This was met with a whole lot of laughs as the night progressed, as this would normally never happen. I am sure things will be back to [ab]normal next game, but it was fun while it lasted!
