I love her already
This is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT for the Starfinder campaign I'm starting next week.

That's pretty cool, guess I'm gonna doodle some alien dinosaur designs then.
Do they have any cool lore or abilities mentioned?
The Final Chronicle
Based on a persistent conspiracy theory, this long-running program follows the adventures of a fictionalized version of Durvin Gest as he uses the Scepter of Ages to travel across all of time to chronicle the history of the entire universe.
By the Sword
An epic speculative drama that asks the question: what if there were no magic in the world? The series takes place over the course of several decades, skipping ahead a few years every season, as it chronicles the lives of the Cargwritt family and their struggle to survive in a world where might makes right and enlightenment and education is sparse.
Worlinpike was a long-lived half-elven playwright born shortly before the end of the Gap. Obsessed with the history that was lost, he strove to chronicle as many great epics from the time of lost Golarion as possible. His outstanding character dramas The Last Days of Thassilon, Abrogail I, The Crown of Fangs, General Arnisant, Choral Rogarvia, and Ninshanbur all received great acclaim, though his few forays into comedy, such as The Drunken Hero, about the mortal exploits and ascension of Cayden Cailean, are considered his true masterpieces. Nevertheless, some have harshly criticized his tendencies to alter history for the sake of a good story, and many scholars believe his overly sympathetic portrayal of Karzoug the Claimer in his battle against Alaznist is utterly absurd and possibly even dangerous.
A hit comedy series about the lives of a team of Pact Worlds soldiers stationed on a remote outpost in the Vast, Outpost Nine was made by a group of Akitonian vidgamers working out of an abandoned fuel hauler. The series has been praised for its expert use of limited resources, though as the production values have improved, some believe it has lost its original charm.

Isn't the time limit about the soul being processed through the boneyard? Wouldn't an intelligent undead like that not count for that?
While dwarves are a type of elf in the Norse myths, Ive always seen the alfar depicted a bit more like the Aos Si.
Are there traits, or have themes pretty much eclipsed them?
Are there rules that would let you, say, fight a great wyrm on a starship scale? Or other giant space monsters?
How easy is it to crash your ship?
Are there any "negative energy" weapons?
Are there rules for boarding parties?
How's Verces doing? What about Kalo Mahoi?
As for the question of "why would Besmara depose Lamashtu specifically?", the answer is pretty obvious: they have a significant overlap, in that both of their areas of concern include monsters. IDK if they've ever been said to have a rivalry, but Besmara definitely dislikes Dagon, who also contests her on dominion over sea monsters, so it'd make perfect sense that of the original core 20, she'd go after Lamashtu

...Pretty much that, but in more words. He didn't painstakingly go over the rules, or show us every premade ship. He showed us a couple pages from the chapter and said pretty much what the blog said.
A few more details (I was at the banquet):
The little guys on the Alien Archive cover are called Skittermanders.
There's also a new god of evolution, Oras.
The Azlanti Star Empire are descended from off-world Azlanti colonies not affected by Earthfall. The Free Captains are now Space Pirates!
Idari is a Kasatha generation ship (explaining how there's enough for them to be a core race)
There's a spell called Logic Bomb, which if it has anything to do w/ the TV Tropes page of the same name, is gonna be so much fun.
The character themes are ace pilot, bounty hunter, priest, scholar, spacefarer, icon, mercenary, xenoseeker, outlaw, and themeless
New factions include the Xenowardens and the Android Abolitionist Front (not the Abolitionist Front of Androids, those guys are nuts)
Dwarves mine asteroids
The Book of the Damned will finally give us details on the Pathfinder versions of Orcus and Jubilex
Please tell me there will be more than a sentence of lore for these dragons. Honestly the only part of these bestiaries I'm continuously disappointed in is that the true dragons are nothing but art and rules. I have all five bestiaries and I don't use any of the true dragons past the first since there's no lore to grab my attention. We need another dragons book to breath some life into them!
1000% agreed. Imperial dragons were the last ones that I really thought were interesting, due to all the lore about them in the Tian Xia book.
