I emailed about this, but I am also starting a thread like suggested.

I need to cancel all of my subs (PF2 Core, Lost Omens, PF2 Accessories, Starfinder) at this time. Things are a little tight right now, but I promise to get back into subs again early next year.

Thank you,
Mike

Looks great!

My order is still pending, but I look forward to my pdfs when it finally ships.

Hope to have the pdf soon- starting up a new PF2 game Saturday!

Hello, I click to track my package for order 8715811 and it doesn't load the tracking... Whether from my phone, my work machine, my personal machine, chrome, edge, incognito, etc. Would you be able to confirm tracking shows it, on track? I know mail and everything is slower these days, but I just want to check since we recently had an issue with one of the local ups hubs losing some coffee we had shipping to us.

Thanks in advance.

I was able to track it. The links never worked, but I was able to pull the tracking number and manually enter it into the UPS MI tracking page.

So no further checking needed.

Thanks.

Do you have any pending order(s)? If you have one, that should be your subscription e-mail.

If not, you may want to go to the product page for any item that you know should be in the order, locate the "View order" link, and click on it. The page with your order should show whatever would have been e-mailed to you.

My order shows pending when I go to my account. Just used to emails about it too.

My subscriptions did not process. I emailed as well. Should be lost Omens world guide and starfinder alien archive 3. I am creating this thread and the email per the note in the August thread.

Please fix my order so it processes and sends out on schedule!

Thank you.

Dark Archive

Here is to hoping for mine too! :)

I emailed about this before the pending email and again afterwards. I am posting here as well. Please cancel my subscriptions at this time as we are having some financial issues right now.

Thank you for your assistance.

Unfortunately, I have not received mine yet. Guess I wasn't the NC order that was supposed to arrive today :)

maybe wait until the Alien Archive comes out and there's space dragons, space ogres, space xxx.

then run a fantasy style campaign with starfinder rules... BUT IN SPACE.

Yeah I am leaning toward waiting on the Alien Archive before I really try to run my game.

Dark Archive

Thanks for all the responses. It has given me a lot to think about.

Are you running Dead Suns or home brewing your campaign? If you're willing to put the work in to homebrew something, you could get his input for a Starfinder campaign idea that excites him. Maybe something like exploring the depths of Drow-controlled Apostae, or a campaign centered around the Drift and it's impact on the outer planes. Maybe something that looks into what happened to all the missing Pathfinder God's or even Golarion itself.

If he's not interested in the setting maybe you can get him interested in the story.

Would be my own stuff. However, I have asked him what he is interested in and unfortunately he isn't too interested.

I may just need to shelve the idea of running it for my regular group, and go run it for the FLGS instead for now.

As someone who hasn't gone outside the genre as well in 20 years and was also content with second edition material (still so much left worth playing) I enjoyed Starfinder a great deal at Gencon. On the rules side it does not take much effort. Maybe he'd be down for trying Skull and Shackles or Kingmaker using Starfinder rules?

I have no time to convert either of those to Starfinder.

I don't think that convincing beforehand will do much to change whether he enjoys the game or not. I would recommend a gentle push toward one of the more fantasy type classes (solarian, technomancer, or mystic), whichever is most like his favorite fantasy classes.

I have subtly pointed out things like that.

What sci-fi shows and movies does he like? Maybe you can point out in which places starfinder took inspiration from them.

Starwars and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Did you ask them to suck it up, take one for the team, and try to have an open mind., :-)

He did say he is willing to give it a shot for the team. I just don't want an unhappy player. That can lead to issues down the line.

Have you asked him what he does not like about sci-fi rpgs? Are there specific problems to address?

I will have to ask him.

Are the others not going to play if he doesn't want to?

or asked another way:

Do you have to have him play with your group?

Franz, he is a good friend, hosts the space for the game, and husband to one of the players.

So to answer you, yes.

I let my group know that I wanted to run Starfinder.
Several people seem really excited.

However, one player is not excited.
He likes watching various sci-fi films/shows, but he doesn't like sci-fi RPGs.

I am trying to get him to see the fantasy in Starfinder and to get him more excited so he can have fun and enjoy the game as much as everyone else when I run it.

I don't want to run the game and have a player not having fun, etc.

Any thoughts here to help get him more interested in it? He prefers D&D/Pathfinder/3.5 fantasy over anything else.

Thanks.

The pdf was awesome, but now holding the book in my hands, I can attest it is one of the most beautiful books Paizo has produced. Thank you Paizo!

Dark Archive

Downloading my PDFs now.

I still wait as well :)

I hope I get my shipping notice soon :)

Would love to look at the PDF.

I don't see this in the rules for Retraining but maybe someone has mentioned this in the messageboards and I missed it.

Can you retrain what your character took as your favored class bonus? So, instead of taking a hit point, you can retrain and take a skill point instead?

I don't see why it would be a big deal but I don't see it mentioned.

Thanks!

Don't have mine yet either. I am wasting away again... :)

I am leaning toward a bard now. Yeah its not a full-caster like I was thinking I wanted. However, I think it will help shore up knowledges and help support the party.

I still get some magic, so it scratches that itch too.

Yeah that one is sorely tempting...What patron?
well a number of the patron spells get replaced by ones from the Gravewalker archetype but Occult would be solid and thematic

Yeah, looking over that, I agree.

Thanks- you helped me clear my head.

Juju oracle? You mean Oracle of Bones?

Having read the whole AP, I believe in that particular campaign that if you were to go with an arcane caster, you might seriously want to consider Necromancy as your path of choice.

I note the cheesiness of the Dhampir Cleric, so he actually CAN heal himself with his spells and channel energy abilities!

Yeah the dhampir cleric can heal himself. However, he preps a lot of cures for the party which is cool.

So after a couple characters I haven't been able to settle into and a long hiatus of the game, I am bringing in a new character to my wife's Way of the Wicked evil campaign.

I was an antipaladin, but I don't want to be that type of character.

So the party is as follows:

Drow Bladebound Magus 7
Goblin Alchemist 6/Rogue 1
Dhampir Cleric 7
Vishkanya Skirmisher Ranger 7

So I was really leaning toward bringing in an arcane caster. I think a pure, flexible arcane caster could benefit the party, and well I really have wanted to play one.

So I am asking for advice- do you all think I should bring in an arcane caster like a wizard/witch/sorcerer?

The rules for traits first appeared in the Pathfinder RPG Advanced Player's Guide.

Oh ok. It wasn't clear. My confusion I guess was since the bonuses didn't say 'trait bonus' like other traits do.

Thanks.

Ah! That is an error. All of the bonuses granted by these traits should be trait bonuses.

Awesome, thanks.

I am curious about the section on Kobold coloration. It lists some traits, but doesn't say how one would acquire such traits.

Any thoughts?

Curious- there is a section about Kobold Coloration. It lists some traits, but doesn't say how one would acquire such traits.
