Anyone else noticing the quality of the art work in newer Starfinder releases going downhill? I’m seeing a lot of amateurish looking images. Galactic Magic has some pretty low budget looking art throughout….

Take our money Paizo!!!!

I’m tired of trying to buy something from Paizo and every time I click “Place Order” I get some page saying the URL doesn’t exist or I don’t have permissions to view it…… WTF?

The rules for familiars are horrible. Who wants to search through the Bestiary's trying to find something suitable?

Soon we will have Blood Lords AP where PCs save Geb (the undead nation) in the middle of undead politics.

How does that sound ?

That actually sounds pretty awesome. I'd like to see another AP set in Numeria as well.

Outlaws of Alkenstar could be really good. Hopefully it won't be some cheesy copy of a bunch of western tropes and be something unique.

Strength of Thousands sounded really cool when it was originally announced but now it just seems like Harry Potter in the jungle...

Does anyone else feel the second edition APs are a bit boring compared the 1st edition? Don't know what it is but they just aren't doing it for me....

So how soon can you have this Iron Gods sequel completed? Lol.. I haven't been excited about the 2nd edition APs but the possibility of one set in Numeria sounds awesome!

Can a player allow his familiar to ride on his character so that they move together without having to use an action to command the familiar to move? For example, my goblin sorcerer has a wasp familiar. I imagine the wasp clings to his master until he is ordered to move and act independently.

Seems like the families of the victims might not be cool with someone buying their loved one for parts.

So I just got the second book and the first thing I noticed is apparently you can just buy all the dead bodies left after a horrific event such as an explosion on a passenger transport ship. Lol... That's weird.

Thank you Jason Tondro for clarifying that. My question is answered and I look forward to the bounty hunters going after the PCs.

My assumption is that EJ Corp has a large presence on Absalom station. I'm sure Golden League agents would be on station as well. When the Oliphaunt is stolen I would imagine the word would go out for both parties to be on the lookout for the ship considering it's value. I imagine Corp agents hacking into the station traffic control AI to watch for the arrival of the ship based on it's name and transponder. I may add a scene where Company agents close on the Oliphaunt right as the characters are preparing to depart the station. Maybe even have a Golden League ship break off from the Armada to pursue the characters before they enter the drift. All depends on how the second book is written.

So the players steal the Oliphant and then the first thing they are expected to do is fly it to Absolam station to get work from Tarika..... And nobody, at all, would notice the stolen ship? I would think if you stole a spaceship you would try to avoid a place like that. Lazy writing maybe?

I havn't even read Alien Archive 3 fully, nor did we play anything beyond the introductory adventure, "Dead Suns" & the first Skittermander adventure.

I did buy SF APs #1-#24 though and will continue to buy them until #33.

I have so many questions about this post and what it's doing here.

Ask away.

Basically i said that i don't need a Alien Archive 4, as 3 volumes (and the Alien Archives sections in the AP volumes) are more than enough for me.

We played Starfinder and liked it, we also played Pathfinder second Edition and didn't like it and we played Pathfinder 1e and still love it.
Unfortunately due to covid-19 it's impossible to meet in person for the next months and i do not need a 4th Alien Archive in my life.

Stay safe and stay home, everybody.

You need Fantasy Grounds in your life.

Good points all around. Thanks fellas!

No, an SRO is a different thing.

Why aren't Anacites a playable race in Starfinder?

I'm planning on running the Dawn of Flames AP and I'm finding the first book to be full of holes.... For one, there is no reason for the characters to ever go to Asanatown. Taeress needs a ride to the Burning Archipelago.... Why wouldn't the characters just drop her off at the Dawnshore space station? For that matter, why does Taeress need to go there? She thinks the DCI is full of crap so why go talk to Nib about the events at Far Portal Station? The list goes on....

No humans? That sucks...

I hope there are a lot more if these stand alone modules. Good stuff.

Love how the English language is thrown out the door and "they" is used to refer to an individual....

Fantasy Grounds is far superior to other VTTs. I wouldn't play anything on Roll20. Just my opinion...

Owen Stephens said on twitter it may very well be the biggest RPG related thing to happen in the past decade....

How long after August 1st will the 2nd Edition materials be available on Fantasy Grounds? It's the greatest VTT software on the market and makes playing Pathfinder even more enjoyable!

Ship my book already....

When will this order ship? Why does it take over a week to ship a product?

I remember playing RPGs with no maps at all... I guess that's why I appreciate quality maps. I only play in Fantasy Grounds too so I don't have to redraw anything. If I want to create extra maps for random encounters or such I make my own with Photoshop.

I'm including a lot more nipples in all my future games!

Thanks for the quick replies. I always read over everything before the game but I end up forgetting while playing. I'll make up some note card like suggested. Making notes about the tactics is a good idea too.

I just found a site where you can print out "spell cards" to have on hand during play. I'm going to print them out for the players as well as the monsters to avoid cracking the book so much. Thanks again!!

I'm a Fantasy Grounds user myself, I consider it far superior to other VTTs available. I'm excited about this news... I love Pathfinder but running live games is a nightmare with everything spread across a million books. Good deal.

How do you prepare to GM a Pathfinder module?? I'm taking someone through Dragons Demand and as we have gotten further into the adventure the monsters all have numerous feats and abilities and spells.... What do you do to avoid having to look everything up in all the different books during combat? There is no way I can memorize all the information and looking it up on the spot slows things down so much it becomes a boring mess..

Any advice from Paizo??
