it's really not that bad once you figure it out. but the learning curve is more a learning cliff...
What is the trick to using it? With the simple sheet the trick is you need to not use it on firefox so you can see the icons you need to click to pop the hood see the engine and check the info.

well, that's probably why it's been a cliff for me! LOL.

nah, but it's easy enough. some of our new guys had some problems, but the vets straightened them out in a few minutes.

its flexible, which is what sheets should be, does everything you need it to do...

You need to stick to chrome for roll20 in our groups experience.

First, a Drow? Aren't they very Evil in Golorian...without exception?

I think the "Always Chaotic Evil" is now non a thing in pathfinder / starfinder.

A drow might face chalenges on the surface but the player needs to own that and rp the consequenses.


Last night we faced Jaagrath Kreeg who hit our tank 116 hp in one hit almost instakilled then I took 49 two characters down in on turn!

Just prior to that our rouge was insta killed by one of the other mid level Ogres.

So now that the game has had a few years I keep noticing, why are ranged

weapons getting so many toys?

From gunner harness to bipod, You don't have to invest in strength to use heavy weapons anymore wich was their only downside, and these are stupid cheap.

Heavy Gunner harnass combined with a bipod and sniper atack allow you to make your full attacks with no penalty to hit.

Melee needs to run into range and take fire and then when they get to full attack, they will do less damage than ranged just because they have less chance to hit?

If you just hunker down with a heavy weapon and a gunner harnass, you can pump all other stats, ending with better survivability and better damage.

'But you are bad in melee!'
Add an operative weapon bayonet and there you go, no longer defenseless.

Seriously? What gives?

Don't think bipod and sling would stack ae front grip might

Yeah, I am not seeing a problem here either other than perhaps game philosophy- there are always people who are going to want to save money by just looting corpses. There are a lot of ways to deal with that in game(i.e. the game world), but at the table? Just ask the guy to stop a few times, and then have the above happen. It certainly happened to me in a game or two.

That is how starfinder is designed I am not sure what the issue is here really

Yeah, I totally agree with that. This is probably how I'll wind up ruling it. Either way my players will probably manage to make a case for using it to travel, at least this way I won't have to deal with them trying to calculate Aucturns orbit to project where it will be in two weeks so they can just wait cloaked in that exact spot.

Thanks all!

Well you can(EVIL GM HAT ON ) force them to rules from Traveller book 3 with gives the actual calculations for Newtonian mechanics for travel :-)

thanks all for the interesting things to consider while running this AP ... as GM, im the only one of my group with actual military background

And I feel the need for a solid grounding in logic and tactics ... so I had to take upon myself to draw up actual maps the region from the start

so the players being sent out on their first mission can understand the lay of the land ... and encouraged them to try resisting the cold without armor protection at first, so they get a feel for it

as for the rank structure, the players squad included;
an outlaw who enlisted to get a pardon
a mercenary grunt who has survivor guilt
a phentomite scout/mechanic the excels at tracking
and lastly, a wild warden technomancer "plant creature"

so ... we role played up their "2 weeks of basic training" prior to the start of the story ... and each was provided a "score" (based on arbitrary things I added up, but players dont know that)

And the mercenary scored highest ... and was promoted to Squad Leader ... aka PRIVATE FIRST CLASS ... enlisted rank 2

and the other (2) were close behind in points and promoted to PRIVATE (each) ... enlisted rank 1 ... and each given a few special items for their class role (which works out best anyhow, since they are new to star finder and the real life youngest of the group)

finally, the "convict" was singled out as "beneath" them on rank structure ... rank 0 ... with no chance for promotion, just a full pardon ... and other team members were warned to "watch out that he doesnt turn on you or try to run off" (which fits his Lawful Evil alignment very well)

so far, has made for some interesting inter-party gossip ... and added to the realism and "internal conflict" for the players

I'm working on creating maps / handouts for the players before they head off on their overnight Patrol ... and another for the Long Slog

thinking of letting them move across the map in (1 hour) increments or something relative ... so they can choose to stick to the roads (reduced to...

I thought a squad leader was Staff Stgt with a Sargent leading a fire team in US usage

Though As I am in the UK If ran it id like to try using Dads Army (TV Show) as the model with the pcs being members of a home guard unit.

I feel like I am missing something in this adventure. The Acreon crew is only ever called 'crew' and the captain is never described or named.

When the adventure mentions the Garaggakal it points out the creature has never met a human and is interested. It also mentions that it is interested in the non-humans.

But what race(s) were the crew?

What about the captain? Does he have a name or race?

It seems weird that the leader of the Hardscrabble Collective (We are family TM)does not play up on emotion by talking about the captain and crew by name. Or that he does not play on emotion. "Here is Captain Starbuck's widow and children. This drift rock could keep them fed, educated, and housed but the greedy corp is trying to steal their inheritance."

Do they give more on the crew and I am missing it?

Oh I totally agree I worked out who all the crew where and gave them

names made reading back the log recordings better and finding bodies with name tags on them.

For Absalom Its also very dependent on where you live it basically a hive of scum and villainy in a lot of areas down below you would have the eqvielent of the favelas - its just some areas are the same but with "Nicer Shoes" as Miranda puts it when referring to illium on Mass effect.

From what you tell, it seems more that your players don't wanted to lean in on the "military theme" of the adventure.

Sure some pieces doesn't looks logical at the first look, but also keep in mind that there are always things happen who are not shown/told in the AP.

Example: Why only one fleetfury?
When the convoy moves out Cmdr. Najiri of course told the HQ in Reos about it. They sent a swaudron of fightercrafts to backup the convoy. When Fort Gallant exploded, they are enganging the enemy sqaudron which tries to kill the convoy. They managed to hold them back, but one enemy slipped through their lines ans chased the convoy.

Why not evacuate immediately from Reos?
Because there are civilians and the duty of a soldier is to protect civilians. So the civilians will be evacuated first.
There were only a number of ships available, so it will take some time to evacuate several thousands of civilians.
That's why they were told "It will take 2-3 days to evacuate everybody from Reos".
They already had a days march from Fort Gallant to Reos behind them, so giving them some sleep before the next mission is logical.
If your player head right after the convoy to the temple I would suggest to take a look at the "Sleep Deprivation"-Rules.

For me it looks more a "player issue" then a AP issue

Just quote the Birkenhead Drill at them or the Starfinder equivalent

To take your chance in the thick of a rush, with firing all about,
Is nothing so bad when you’ve cover to ’and, an’ leave an’ likin’ to shout;

An’ they done it, the Jollies—’Er Majesty’s Jollies—soldier an’ sailor too!
Their work was done when it ’adn’t begun; they was younger nor me an’ you;

One way in which Starfinder does feel a bit shallow is in the amount of wacky races that get pushed out, with just 1-2 pages of description. I'd prefer a slowdown in playable races (81 in Nethys, and ~15 more incoming with AA3), and instead focus on more development of some of these races we already have.

Shirren are found all throughout the Pact Worlds

You also get bonus languages for ranks in culture and 1 for each INT bonus.

A high INT Operative or Mechanic can have a lot of languages

Um I think you might be missing the point that any sane party will be using some sort of coms system 100% of the time.

Everyone (99.99%)is going to be miked up and have earphones /earpieces in even when they haven't buttoned up their armour.

Eh, strength in numbers does exist, its just not infinitely scaling. There are middle ground zones where the added number of attacks more than balances the the lesser chance of hitting.

That said, I'd be inclined to stat well-disciplined forces using something like the swarm rules.

Strength in numbers aka the human wave attack is not that good against a superior opponent.

You could say have a target passively or actively detected at range, fire a missile or missiles which could be guided closer until its within the zone of no escape - then switches to active and sprints in at full speed.

Have you ever noticed that Starfinder characters tend to walk around settlements heavily armed and armored? In any realistic setting this should result in a chat with Law Enforcement; this would occur even the settlement is “Wild West” enough to allow characters to carry side-arms.

Thing is, the players are RIGHT to do this because of two issues I am having with the design of the game.

  • 1 – the encounter design system presumes that characters (and NPCs for that matter) have certain levels of protection and damage potential.
  • 2 – the Wealth By Level system normally does not allow characters to own two sets of armor (one light and one heavy) or multiple weapons (a long-arm, a side-arm, and a melee weapon – though even large melee weapons would be a problem, requiring still another smaller melee weapon).
Do you see this as a problem in your campaigns?

Isn't this just like pathfinder/dnd where characters keep a lower level / social set of armour - some times referred to as my leather pajamas.

The problem would be each ship would take a different time to travel a given distance and you would split the party

Hey there, this is Patrick the author here.

The description of 'marauding bikers' is funny because that makes me think of Mad Max.

No, this hasn't come up in a game but I just was kind of curious.

Let say you go out of your starship on a EVA. And someone comes along and decides to blow up your starship. Are there any kind of items or class abilities that allow for you to just guide yourself towards the planet and reenter the atmosphere? Normally that sort of thing would result in blacking out and dying from heat without special shielding to help you.

However, humans have done juumps "from space" and survived. And all of our combat armor is basically super tough space suits.

So do we have any armor upgrades or anything that deals with reentering a planet's atmosphere without using a space ship?

I mean I guess with force soles or a jet pack you could just control your movement back into the atmosphere. It might just take you a while to get back on your feet. Since it's like 60 miles from Earth's surface to "space". So you need some sort of system to make a controlled fall, and then gain complete control before you splat.

Traveler JTAS 11 did have a Atmospheric Re-entry Kit which had an inflatable ablation shield plus a deorbiting booster which you strapped your self into - you then deorbited and made the last stage as a normalish parachute jump

What are some fun/unique solar weapons people have seen in Starfinder?

Nimor Starseeker wrote:

Here are my two cents:

To answer your question I ask you in return:
What would it take to increase the maximum range of a firearm?
In my opinion the weapon would have to become more powerful somehow and a scope will not make a firearm more powerful, but it will increase accuracy at longer ranges (within the fire arm maximum).

I think scopes do not increase your maximum range, they increase accuracy.

Right, range limits of modern firearms are physical limits, not based on quality of sights.

For example, the M16 has an effective range of 500m vs point targets (a dude) and 800m vs area targets (a group of dudes or encampment). The point limitation isn't because small targets are harder to aim at and a better scope would help you extend out to that 800m, it's because the physics of the bullet mandate that it has too much random spin and dispersion past 550m. But it still has enough energy to (less accurately) travel and do some damage, so you can still hit at a random point inside a certain area out to 800m.

For energy weapons in Starfinder the physical limit would presumably be beam coherence past a certain point. A scope/sight isn't going to make the photons stick together any longer.

I suppose the real world upgrade the weapons barrel and use different ammo would be one way of improving the maximum range - its just that Starfinder didn't go down say the traveller route of being more based on real world weapons.

As for other safeguards, it's very plausible that the system to shut off the air and suffocate people on the ship is not even accessible from any general workstation.

For well built systems, the designers should have learned the lessons of Therac-25 and would have hardware interlocks that prevent hackers from venting atmosphere - even with root access.

For cut-rate budget systems though...

The problem is, there may well be legitimate circumstances where "venting the atmosphere" is something you really do want to do. 'Fire' being the most obvious. And depending on how big the ship is, strictly analog electro-mechanical systems for handling atmosphere venting may not be practical.

Classically some Traveler Ships decompressed before combat - stops those nasty fires. The crews obviously where in vacsuits.

You probably would want to be in armour in an engagement even if you where still pressurized as you could dump fire suppressant into the crew spaces.

And I suspect that there would be a hard air gap between safety critical systems and the general computers.

Since the Azlanti empire is at least much as powerful as the Veskarium and the Pact Worlds combined, but probably not a lot more, they'd have to devote more than half of their fleet to be sure to win an expensive battle of attrition against the Pact Worlds (and attacking Absalom Station would mean fighting all the Pact Worlds). That leaves the Veskarium forces, who are allied with the Pact Worlds and pissed at the Azlanti for taking one of their colony worlds, free to take revenge on any of 12 underdefended Azlanti planets. Or several, including the homeworld.

You would need a lot more than parity to guarantee success so I suspect its more of a stand off

It looks as though spaceships are the only free source for battery recharging -- note that there also seems to be no mention of them using up fuel. That raises the question of what other sources of free power might be available.

Public recharging stations cost credits to use -- but is there a minimum size or price of a private home that could be equipped with a recharging station comparable to that on a starship? I could easily see a wealthy patron including as a perk of working for him free access to his private recharging station, if he is sending a group with no spaceship on a mission on the same planet.

I think ship upkeep is figured in as part of what you are doing while adventuring and between adventures. So it is not necessarily free but basically negligible in the face of everything else you need to do to keep a ship running.

I uspect that some of teh oddities are due to the lack of sf role playing experience in the writers (and they have admitted as much in the SW youtube vids)

The pc's almost always have a SSTO starship charging a battery is trivial.

Howdy All!

I am looking for some players for a Starfinder campaign that will play through the Against the Aeon Throne adventure path, playing on alternate Sunday afternoons (1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. CST, every two weeks), with the first session on January 27th (which I intend to use as a "session zero" to create the characters and introduce the players to each other).

Ideally, I would prefer four or five players and would ask that the players make at least 75% of the sessions.

We will be using Roll20 for dice rolls, pictures, maps, etc... and we will be streaming the session on my YouTube channel (which you can find here: ).

If you want to see what a session will look like in play (and what kind of DM I am), you can see an example, here (where I ran Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea): - Actual Play - Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea 2nd Edition

If you either do not have a functioning webcam or do not want your face on the stream, you will be free to play anonymously in Roll20 at the sessions, you will just need to join us without your camera on through a Google Hangout (I use that program to capture the audio for the stream and then just share the video from Roll20).

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the characters, the campaign, or the Starfinder rules beforehand, please do not hesitate to drop me a line at

Otherwise, I hope 2019 is off to a great start and hope to share a virtual table with you soon!

You should start with a Dex of 16 and put max ranks into piloting, as the others have said. This should take care of the driver and gunner roles.

The machine gunner role probably requires proficiency with heavy weapons. That's very feat intensive for a technomancer. If that's important to your build, I would consider a 1 level dip in soldier.

I don't think a "tank" in starfinder would have a 5 man crew the bow machine gunner was redundant shortly after ww2. If you watch the chieftains videos on youtube there is one where he describes the process of signing for weapons they had more than 1 mg for every crew member.

And a tank that does not have a gun with CPR rounds is unlikely to need a loader

A Tank in starfinder would be a panzer (grav tank) or possibly a full on gunship (a grav tank that can SSTO)
