Thank you guys - after Lyn being gone from the boards for so long last time, any absence concerns me a bit more than normal now... (=^_^=)

Monkeygod: Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to venture into the Twitterverse and find out if Lyn is alright, then report back.

I'm sorry for your loss, my friend.

It sounds like he was a good man leaving behind a good legacy, though, so like you said - something to be proud as heck of.

We're all thinking of you.

I probably need to apologize in advance for any potential harshness in my posts for the next little bit.

We just got home from a two-week emergency trip to hospital with my wife and her family. She lost her mother to pneumonia (and to complications from that illness). She was an amazing and good person, and I'll just leave it at that.

So if my posts get a little terse and less understanding, please know that it is not intentional....this Dalesman is just all out of Diplomacy right now.

[EDIT]: Though I guess I still can find my weird sense of humor, looking at my in-game post. I'll just take that as a good sign, neh? (^-^)

Also, we were in the paizo trivia contest at paizocon:

Ask James Jacobs, FaWtL, and the one about hugging succubi, or maybe the LGBTQ+ gamer's thread.

Edit: definitely not the LGBTQ+ thread, they only have 17,000+ posts, so it's gotta be succubus in a grapple.

Deep 6 FAWTL. Tales of Agartha: the Avalon Chronicles. Ask James Jacobs Anything.

!!!!! O.o

Okay, I knew my game was kinda massive, but, honestly hadn’t realized it was that many posts! :D

Huh - our little game (sort of) made it into a trivia contest? At PaizoCon, no less?

I think that's something to be proud of... ;)

Oh...:

The dark days of the year draw down upon us, and the call goes forth...or something ;)

So how many of our flock will be stepping away from the board for NaNo this year?


Male More Human than Human Rogue 10 / Fighter 6 / Shadowdancer 10 / Void Incarnate 4

Probably not, but I always try to err on the side of caution when using portions of other peoples' IP. ;)

Stupid Trivia Time:
Tamrin and his prestige class are heavily influenced by and borrowed content from the late 90's anime series Outlaw Star. And Fei is loosely based off of the main character in a video game from Square called Xenogears.

There's nothing to apologize or feel guilty for, Lyn, and there never will be when stuff this scary happens. Family always comes first.

Take care of you and yours, worry about everything else later, and know that you're all in our thoughts.

If you're going to keep your game strictly RAW to start off with, please ignore my next statement. ;)

If you're not, then Stroh Hammer has published some rather nice content for Starfinder that you might like.

Well, that was a fun week. The whole family was down with the flu at the same time. Trying to catch up, still fighting the fatigue. Less from the sickness now and more from the catching up on all the housework and shopping that didn't get done while I was sick. Trying to remember where I left off. Apologies for the delay, but I can't control influenza. :)

As frightening as this flu season`s been, we`re just glad you`re all on the mend over there now, Lyn. (^-^)

Character roll call:

Dara and Sadie: Okay, so best I can find, Dara is in the library along with Sadie. I think Fei was with him for awhile? Maybe....not sure I'm remembering that correctly. It was before Fei left for the festival.

You are remembering correctly. Fei went to the Library to study up on the Equinox festival, and ran into Sadie and Dara. Here's the (well-buried) post excerpt to confirm:

Fei, of the Sun Soul wrote:
Fei had not intended to be this late getting to the teleportation room, but young Dara had been most insistent upon him staying in the Library as long as possible. Given his absences from the school over the last week or so, the young monk could not, in good conscience, deny that. (^-^)

I don't know if you still check in on this thread, but I'd love to grab a copy of your Director's Cut content if so:

And in a general question to this thread - has anyone created a map for the Black Spire area on Khosravi island? I'm trying to locate something to use for it, but striking out so far

Hey, you could always try with just one or two of your old characters. That might not be as big of a time commit. Just a thought, neh? ;)

Hi, everyone!

I decided to go ahead and make a player's guide for my group. I figured there might be a few people who could benefit from it, as well, so I'm sharing it here.

I tried to make this as helpful as possible while still being spoiler free. That said, I highly encourage GMs to review this thoroughly before giving it you your players, so you can make sure it doesn't include anything you don't want them to see.

Here's the link to the location on Google Drive:

If you see any problems, let me know, and I'll make corrections.

Good News and Impressions

'Tis good news indeed that you're on the mend, Lyn (^-^)

My Starfinder reading has been a bit slower than yours (I just started the Computers section of the Equipment chapter last night), but so far I'm liking it as well. If I get any different impressions from the starship chapter when I get to it, I'll let you know.

(I can't remember if the d20 Star Wars rules for starship combat were any good or not, but I may check my books and see.)

So we are coming to you. What kind of aliens do you want? Please feel free to reference existing Pathfinder material, your favorite scifi book/movie/tv show/web series/radio show/etc, or anywhere else you get your inspiration for a playable alien race that you want to see.

Tell us what you want to play.

I know I'm late to the game here, but I'd like to see playable aliens based on the Votan races from the (now-defunct) Defiance TV show/MMO game.

For those of us with a manageable character list, for each of your characters, who is their roomate, and what classes do they have?

I think this might be a nice way to spurr on interactions. I'll post mine in a bit.

Can do.

    Seriously though, I'd be seriously jazzed (aka instabuy) to see such an archetype(s) in 3PP PFRPG and SFRPG products. I tried to build a cavalier pilot archetype that gained a heavily-modified eidelon mech mount ("agalmata"), but I could never get it right. It'd be pretty awesome to have Medium/Large size mechs like landmates, Tachikomas, and Veritech Cyclones as options for a mount that scales with the PC's class.

    Happy Saturday Folks,

    So the great news is that I just got my Starfinder Limited Edition hardback today (and earlier than I thought I'd get it)! (^-^)

    The not-so-great news is that my book arrived damaged. It appears that part of the styrofoam bracing for the top left corner was broken off and lying under the book, and the top of the spine was partially crushed during shipping.

    I figured it would be best to let you know immediately to see if we can do anything about this. I have pictures of the packaging and the book and I will send them to the customer service email as well.

    Thanks, as always, for the help with this!
