Did she eat Meligaster and steal his cloak? Does that mean that mesmerists are being rolled into sorcerer class features?

You all know that Europe released songs other than the Final Countdown, right? The whole Prisoners in Paradise album is amazing. That should get its on scenario, or maybe a 32-page module.

We can make followers of Kadrical yes? He is nicer than the Society-legal Devourer, and his portfolio appears to fit well with the aims of the Starfinders.

Mine is in honor of the film The Dirt, the film adaptation of Motley Crue's biography, recently being released on Netflix. While I certainly don't approve of the actions in the Girls, Girls, Girls B-side power ballad You're All I Need, I can't deny my appreciation for the art form known as lyrical dissonance.

The title is reminiscent of soap opera star Jack Wagner's soft rock hit All I Need, as Crue bassist and chief songwriter Nixxi Sixx suspected his girlfriend of cheating on him with Wagner. Meanwhile, Sixx was cheating on her with twenty other women, but the hypocrisy failed to register in his drug-addled mind. Vince Neil's soaring upbeat vocals stood in sharp contrast to the tragic tale of the murder of a lover so that the heartbroken narrator could keep her all to himself.

Sixx showcased his dark humor most prominently in the verse-ending line, "But we finally made the news," evoking nostalgia of a time in which securing a headline could be considered relationship goals, long before the era of tweets and hashtags. While this tune would possibly be barred from mainstream airwaves in the modern climate, You're All I Need will remain in the hearts of classic headbangers as one of the all-time great ballads. (OK, maybe not. Home Sweet Home is a far more popular example of a slow pretty song from the leather-and-umlaut clad bad boys.)

People like him love being the center of attention. Dropping him without fanfare and moving on seems like the best-case scenario in this situation.

Bard is an excellent choice for this AP. I recommend it 100%. My bard has been absolutely killing it on keeping up alliances with respect to political intrigues, seducing characters that are depicted as attractive in the artwork, and buffing his allies into becoming even more efficient murder-machines. Argent Voice is an archetype made for this campaign, so I suggest at least giving it a look.

I've recently played several Starfinder Society adventures. On one of those adventures, I managed to grab a few items (Clearsight Goggles and two Mk 2 Healing Serums).

My question: do I need to purchase those items off the chronicle sheet to "officially" have them, or did my character have them as soon as he picked them up?

You have those items until the end of the scenario (and may use up consumables before then). At the end of the scenario, rather than dividing up individual items, all players will get credits on their chronicle sheets. In order to permanently possess an item, you will need to buy it with your earned credits.

I just got a ganzi for GMing at a convention so I think it is the flavor of the 3 months.

I would like it if we just dropped deity alignment and used anathemas to control which clerics can worship whom. I think anathemas are much more clear role-play hooks then alignment, especially since no two people can agree on what Chaos and Law are.

I second this idea. Concrete rules are better guides for behavior than alignments, which can be subjective. My characters who worship Gorum tend to act lawful good, despite being chaotic neutral on paper, and I’ve never been warned that I was close to violating Gorum’s tenets.

Hey - one of my local GM's is getting ready to run this as a PFS sanctioned event & he's got a question about the sanctioning document - the small box on the 1st page lists the level ranges starting at level 11 & ending at 15 [11-13, 12-14, 13-15, & 14-16 for the bonus sheet].

Unfortunately the actual chronicle sheets start at 10th level, thus the ranges are 10-12, 11-13, 12-14, & 13-15.

Which of these is correct?
I'm inclined to go with what's on the sheets, personally.

I am also inclined to go with the tiers on the chronicle sheets, as GMs will see those numbers in character records.

I think a new character means what it meant before, which is different from the new category, “one of your Starfinder Society characters with 0 XP.”

I am making mine as a kasatha with the Star Knight archetype. Some two-handed basic melee weapons deal comparable damage to one-handed advanced melee weapons. A kasatha can hold a spear in two hands and have two hands left over for holding a small arm and for casting spells. Plus having the Strength and Wisdom as higher stats helps.

The only gender mechanics that I have seen in the CRB are height and weight, which may simply be holdovers from the world’s oldest roleplaying game. I do not recall any PFS scenarios that take height or weight into account. So you should be fine to go ahead and make a character who is intersex, genderfluid, etc.

The Red Raven/Aric of Halvon pregen says that he may share his identities with his allies in the Society. I go ahead and do that if the other party members suspect that I am two people. Often I will stay in one identity for the scenario, chosen by reading the description.

Is it too late to call them paths? In Pathfinder Society we have GM Stars, so in Starfinder Society we could have GM Paths.

Many pregens aren't very good. Make your own character as soon as possible. Starfinder has reasonably competent pregens, however.

Modify Memory may be more likely to be used to make a child think something horrific happened, rather than cover it up.

Veil sounds as though it is more likely to make the caster, or another creature or object, appear more terrifying to the child.

Unnatural Lust.... yeah, I'll give you that one. Even if intended for another use, it has overtly sexual connotations. A variant "Unnatural Gluttony" or something may be more appropriate.

Yeah, they're obviously supposed to be the villains. If players go off the deep end in performing evil actions, that's on them. Paizo shouldn't have to censor material for the vast majority of gamers just to prevent what might happen with a few fringe elements.

The bonus feat is useful for soldiers. I plan to mitigate the effects of the -2 Strength for my ryphorian soldier by making him my SFS GM baby. Starting at 14 Strength, by level 5 he can have 18 Strength from the ability crystal and level-up stat boosts.

What is it about both sides having toilets that makes this a "must have"?

I think the map is pretty awesome, but the toilets didn't factor into that much.

It's rare to see toilets on even one side of a map, much less two.

Their face stripes appear to be natural, like their face spikeys, both of which were probably added to differentiate them from humans. Many species in Path/Starfinder can have darker skin tones, so the same likely goes for lashuntas. They may not necessarily be the same as elves, halflings, or humans. Any way the coloring works out, it is all super sexy.

Here's one that will ring true for Starfinder characters:

The wrong person flushed the wrong toilet at the wrong time for all the right reasons.

Why else would some of the new maps feature toilets when they rarely or never have before?
