Thank you so much for the review Endz!

I do have a bit of news regarding this collection as well. First of all, this will be our first print on demand product which I hope to have available soon! In preparation for this, I have done multiple editing passes on the entire document in order to clean up various grammatical and rules formatting issues before committing to the print version. Like some items having the weight in fractions and others in decimals - an artifact of combining the multiple pdfs that occurred in some early versions of the release.

There will also be some content changes which include the following:


  • Layout changes to ensure monster entries align with page-breaks, so monsters take 1, 2 or 3 full pages.
  • Page count increased to 82 pages, which due to the layout changes actually includes about 8 pages worth of new content!
  • At least 1 new hazard
  • Some new/updated art
  • Some problematic items (like Sard Sap) updated or replaced entirely.
  • Plant companions moved to their own section!
  • All monsters included in Bestiary (except Verdaxag) will have a natural item (there were a couple of omissions).
  • 5 entirely new plant monsters only available in this collection - all written by Mike Welham!

Of course, anyone who has already bought the collection will get the updated version for free once it is released.

Well, it is 4:00 am on Sunday and I am apparently awake for the day so I might as well post something!

It is great to be back at PaizoCon after missing last year and seeing a bunch of familiar faces! My con highlights so far include the VC dinner on Thursday, the Freelance Forge meetup and the Banquet (weird how those all involve shoving food in my face)!

Also got to play the SFS scenario Data Breach with a table of 4 Operatives to that was pretty fun!

I picked up a ticket for Cosmo's Railroad game from the event swap table* and had a lot of fun, but honestly, I still don't know what the heck happened during those 4 hours. It's like my brain is blacking that out in order to protect itself from the evil clown trauma!

Tonight I might be able to get in on the special even though I don't have a ticket - I hear one of the seeker tables may be interested in a 15 level cleric! :) fingers crossed

Other than that I will be wandering around today, so if you see me feel free to stop and say hello. Chatting with folks is one of my favorite PaizoCon activities.

*Check it out if you have an open slot and are looking for something to do.

Yay, the forums are back up at a time I can access them!

Glad to see that I am not going crazy and there actually is not a way to make a 1st level character with an 18 Con currently.

Arguments to the effect of "an high Con isn't very good anyway" are missing my point. There SHOULD be a way to make a character with an 18 con at first level - and it should exist in the core book. Otherwise the game is effectively incomplete.

In order to accomplish this under the current setup there needs to be a class (preferably more than one) that has or can choose Con as its Key Ability.

A separate, but related topic is that there should be more class features/feats/abilities/whatever tied to Con in order to make having it as your key ability a viable choice at a comparable level to Str, Dex or any of the other abilities.

Thoughts?

I just want more RIG stuff from Space Badger® (aka Mike Welham).

Mike went and took a vacation or something so he won't be back in the word mines for a while. He is going to be doing something Starfinder related for R.I.G. when he gets back, but it will more likely be a September release than on the August 17 release date.

Okay I can announce Rusted Iron Games first Starfinder Compatible product line!

We will be doing a line called Starfarers that each feature a new NPC ship crew. The crew will have a group background and motivations (such as exlporers, smugglers, etc.). Each individual NPC will also have personal background and motivations and information about their crew role on the ship. Each NPC will also have stat blocks at 3 different levels for added utility. Each Starfarers product will also feature a new ship design including deckplan and 3 different ship stat blocks - each appropriate to the NPC levels.

Starfarers can be used as enemies, friendly NPCs or quick pregenerated PCs if needed. You could also just swipe the ship designs to use for your own PCs or something else.

I plan to have the first editions of Starfarers available on the Starfinder release date of August 17th.

What increases when a character goes up in level?

A) Hit Points only.
B) Stamina Points only.
C) Both, Hit Points and Stamina Points.
D) Neither.

If I remember correctly from the Starfinder delve at PaizoCon, you get SP and HP from both your race and class at character creation, then get more of both (I think) from your class when you level. Don't know how/if resolve points go up.

Edit: Oh and after reading the whole thread I see Owen already answered this. :)

Hey, I wrote the the Magma Crawler monster that appears in this adventure! The stats for that monster should indeed be correct - as far as I can verify to the best of my ability! :P

New Today! Template Races: Half-Humans

Half-elves and Half-orcs have been a staple of fantasy game worlds for a long time. But why limit our games to just those two human crossbreed races? Why not half-dwarves, half-gnomes or half-hobgoblins? That's where the the half-human race template comes in, you can create any human crossbreed races that you need for your game.

So when will Paizo have the revised version of the PDF available? Based on Endzeitgeist's review, I would have to say that we do not have the revision here (I just re-downloaded it to check).

Hi David,

Sorry I am a bit behind on getting the revised version uploaded here at Paizo. I will upload it tonight and then it usually takes the Paizo folks 1 to 2 business days to make it available. In any case the site should send out an email when the updated version is available.

Regarding starting with monsters, I hope they would be new monsters and imaginitive not just archetypical since I'm sure paizo or one of 3rd parties is quick to cover all basic space monster tropes.

Hi CorvusMask,

Thanks for commenting, there are a lot of good suggestions there. Monsters will be mostly original as designing monsters is one of my favorite things to do for Pathfinder - I expect that to be true for Starfinder as well. I do admit there might be one or two classics that I might not be able to resist taking a swing at myself (salt vampire from Star Trek TOS, Aliens, mind controlling parasites) but would put some kind of unique twist on them.
