You absolutely need melee units to tie up enemies before they reach your archers, but your marksmen are the core of your firepower. Also your mage generals.

Being honest, I had not put much stock in my generals before. Maaaybe that was a mistake.

I havent had a chance to play it yet, but I crowdfunded the HOMM3 board game from Archon and y'all.... I freaking love these minis. Its like its 199X again and I'm sitting at my family's Gateway desktop with the MIDI sounds streaming from Soundblaster speakers.

Paizo Employee Community and Social Media Specialist

And here I was getting all excited to mix it up in melee with my units!

We have a panel at Gen Con coming up that will lay out Starfinder's roadmap for the next year. I'm sure we will have answers to your questions then!

Oh hey! I was ALSO at ALA! Congrats to all the GMs!

Are you starting Curtain Call fresh, and need to make up a past? Or is this a continuation of the adventures of a long stories group? What past adventures are being immortalized in the written word for you?

I see nothing wrong with this at all. Everyone loves a little Gothic horror every now and then.

I must hear of the exploits of ALL these characters.

Years ago, I was part of a home game that played PF1. We had to deal with quite a few of those things. Also reminds me that I need to get Prince of Wolves off my TBR pile eventually.

I have never played an oracle... But this is certainly selling me on the idea!

I don't understand the relation.

Fair enough, I only gave you half the context. We were talking about one of the Advanced Readers those librarians were reading—some new dark fantasy with ties to Russian folklore. Then the Baba Yaga, then Rasputin, one or two Bartok quotes later, boom—Reign of Winter.

This is all great advice! I tend to make monolithic, single armies that do most of the heavy lifting, only to get caught up when a demon stack spawns. This problem has been coded into me since I first played Heroes of Might and Magic way back in the Windows 3.1 era. I thimk I have a save on the way to Drezen I can go load up at some point and play around with how it works.

Should be off.

I love this community.

Paizo's silence on this question has been the reason i've never been able to play starfinder. :P

I love that the fact that this rule exists means someone tried to do some straight-up shenanigans to make it work. I salute you, unnamed group!

The title basically says it all. I'm not above using all the troops necessary, even if I don't like them (those Hellknights certainly help early game). What unit combinations do you use? Strategies? Or do you set it on autopilot to focus on the characters?

I must admit... I have never considered how a living hologram might store items up until now. This might haunt me for a bit.

Paizo Employee Community and Social Media Specialist

Sure do! I'm very excited to see what sorts of fun happen in Curtain Call.

I absolutely love reign. My players are having a blast with it!

A...wintery blast? *Cries in 95F PNW summer* I'll see myself out now. I'm glad to hear it's going well, though!

Part of the reason I find it difficult to progress the story is the crusade bits. It scratches that 'Heroes of Might and Magic' itch just enough that I really enjoy running around and fighting!

I'm waiting out the last DLC, which drops in a few days, then another patch cycle to iron out the new bugs it introduces, then it's time for that Angel run I've been holding off on. :)

One day i WILL finish that gold dragon run.

I just found this thread and wanted to add that young Jon is super psyched that I can now make a Badger Lord style fighter and make a full on Redwall game.

We are 4ish sessions in. I'm running it. My group is having a BLAST, I've altered some of the adventure (i'm adding a dip into a Regency era party for reasons) and its going very smoothly.

Im currently running Stolen Fate for my home group. I've changed some of card hunting to fit my group, but you DO get a home base early, and my group loves that. The villains are present early, but there isnt real 'This is who we are' until later. And the stakes are essentially all of reality.

Kingmaker is also a solid choice.

I can see some tempers are beginning to flare. If you are going to disagree, please do so respectfully.

I keep hearing good things. If I ever play SF2e (Im sure I will) it will probably be Solarian first, Witchwarper after.

For my part, Rovagug's death was still my favorite pick, but that's just because it felt like the most Dark Souls option available. The doomsday god is dead, and yet everything is worse now. Gorum's death is a great development!

I love that as an option. Gorum may not be the one who goes in my home game ( havent decided/not there yet story wise) but one of the things I love about this game is the vast amount of creativity involved in our own worlds. To continue the FromSoft vibe, if Pharasma goes, maybe nothing truly dies anymore a la Elden Ring? That sounds like a fun thing to explore.

I will also continue to hype our art because dang that Gorum piece looks good.

This dates me, but you might have seen those old 'Tootsie Pop' commercials? Anytime anyone asks me 'how many x' my brain immediately goes there. But also, 3 is not a WRONG answer?

I'm going to let the cuts stand. This is apparently a fiery subject. I think the general intent of the thread has been asked and answered, so I'm going to lock the thread now.

In home games, I have absolutely allowed archetypes from other campaigns. I think the advice you've gotten here is spot on. This is the sort of thing you hash out at session 0, get buy-in, and have fun with. If they are a newer player, it might be worth pointing out any deficiencies about the archetype (like if they didn't know it wouldn't do x very well), but other than that.. we make the game to play and have fun. Thats the important part!

I would pay real monies to watch a sitcom of the emo goth oracle and the cool cat solarion bopping around space doing things.

I love that the discussion has changed from 'Whodunnit' to 'Whydunnit'. Even if you won't be running Prey for Death, I'd highly suggest reading it for the story alone.

One month! The PDFs will still be free but if you want the physical copies, its a purchase.

Something about childhood toys coming to life makes me wistfully nostalgic. I wonder why that could be. Also, the big old bunny being a tank is so spot on that it hurts.

Did a reading on this, I had no idea Kingmaker was that well loved. Definitely gonna do Curse of the Crimson Throne next with other friends after Runelords.

Kingmaker is arguably one of the most popular AP's we have. My best advice is to make sure what sort of story your group is after and find one that fits. I ran Ruins of Azlant for my group and they enjoyed it (not the least of which because they were fans of Lost, the TV show).

Mummy's Mask seems like a good fit as well. My group also really enjoyed War for the Crown ( I just upped the Regency bits and made it more 'upper crust society during the day, Robin Hood vigilantism at night')

I am SO excited for everyone to read/play the adventure and learn all the things.
