Love having a disabled iconic for Starfinder, that's super rad


My players just finished up We're No Heroes, but they escaped from the rendezvous point without killing Deminda. The book says that Sinjin will kill her if she fails, but that feels like a waste given how much of an impression she made on my players. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to incorporate her into future adventures?

As an autistic person who owes much of his social life to this company's games, this means so much to me, thank you!


I for one would love to see more of the Ramiyel. Their origins fascinate me.

Wait... HOW THE HECK DIDN'T I NOTICE THAT THE TASHTARI ONLY HAVE THREE LEGS UNTIL NOW???

Very happy for Stheno, hopefully they adapt the Euryale from 1e in this so we can finally have monsters based on all three sisters!

Trying to put together a group to play this ASAP! I've read through the first two books and I really love the tone it sets for really making the players feel like a part of this universe! Honestly this is exactly the kind of thing I've wanted since the game was announced.

That said, I do wish this AP was available for Roll20. I've noticed that Starfinder APs dont have much support in that regard, which is a shame.

I dont think that's a dragonKIN


I'm fighting between the conflicting urges of "this seems really cool" and "I'm already way behind on like three actual play TTRPG podcasts"

Considering that Dwarves who live in the Mana Wastes were the ones who invented black powder weapon in the Inner Sea Region, I like the idea that the new gunslinger iconic is a Dwarf.

Oh, yeah, she looks really cool and it's a good idea to have a dongun dwarf. But I'm still attached to the old character

Has Paizo said that if they appoint a new iconic for a class the old one is no longer available? I must have missed it. Although, come to think of it, I don't know how easily certain PF1 class iconics (gunslinger, alchemist, magus, summoner for starters) can be ported to PF2.

I'm just referring to seeing her in artwork.

TBH I never found goblins particularly intimidating but seeing one in life-size would probably change that! This is spectacular, though I'm sure it's way out of my price range

I hope we get a book that similarly expands magic, it feels like the fantasy part of Starfinder is a little neglected, which can be disappointing since that's a big part of its appeal for me.

Seltiyel is wearing a SHIRT??? I am offended

TBH the main reason I'm buying this book is Meyanda being on the cover

Why does it say PDF unavailable?

Still disappointed about losing Alahazra but this character's pretty neat. Love the descriptions of Gozreh and the elemental lords, and the whole "drowning and returning as a prophet" bit reminds me of a more functional Aeron Damphair. Plus I'm just always a sucker for storm-themed characters.


This is a mature and understandable decision to come to. While I personally think there is still room for fantastical police forces that represent what law enforcement *should be* while being critical of the current nature of such institutions (see Sir Terry Pratchett's Watch novels) such stories need to be made cautiously and with intent, and in an interactive medium like this it is very reasonable for people to feel uncomfortable with such content, particularly in times like this. The truth is that, regardless of any hypothetical ideal of what police "should" represent, Paizo and many of its fans reside in a nation where that institution is fundamentally flawed and violent, to the point where I myself probably wouldn't be comfortable playing a police character, even though I'm white (though I am disabled which is another risk multiplier for police violence).

I understand why a few people are concerned about this, but while I would be 100% fine with an AP exploring a police force if it was written with care and understanding regarding the issues surrounding real world police institutions, that's not what this is about. I'm not the kind of person who thinks all characters should be shiny paragons of justice, but the issue is if the *work* the police is doing is made to look 100% heroic there will be problems, and by their own admission that seems to be what this AP is doing.


Both of these are great to see

Oh crap, Meyanda's staff is made from her old spiked gauntlet! :0


I love this

It would be awesome if that were Meyanda - she became a major character in my Iron Gods campaign.

But I'm pretty sure the default assumption is that she died, so it seems unlikely...

The clothing is identical to hers, so I can't imagine it's anyone else.

MEYANDA!? MY GIRL IS BACK!?


Anyone else having an issue adding the PDF to their cart? I keep getting a "Your request produced an error" message

What do y'all mean "Gaston"? That's clearly skinny Obelix!


why is this in the February releases on the front page if it isn't out until late March?

Yay, a full-body image of Casandalee where she doesnt have a gaping hole in her chest! :D


Was hoping for Iron Gods but this is cool too


I'm really excited to hear we're gonna get an announcement about future PF comics, I love them so much!

For the record, I've always envisioned Desna's pre-humanoid form to be more like a glowing light space moth. Think Mothra, but made out of stars and prismatic sprays and sparkles.

That's pretty much how I imagined her. Love it.


OH THANK GOD. I've been needing this

I've read through the whole thing, but I still dont know what the robot thing on the cover is?

I like them looking alike, but not TOO alike. I always liked the Bestiary 1 hobgoblin, where it looked similar but not just like a big goblin.

Not the biggest fan of the hobgoblin designs. They looked way better in 1e. Still better than the Starfinder ones, but still

Hanakans are small magical dinosaurs. They (along with many species on their homeworld) developed magical abilities very early in their evolution, and their modern society is powered by magic rather than technology. Curiously, they view electricity with the same disdain many technological species view necromancy.

Does their society run on... crystals?

I LOVE the Dirindi.
Are the Jinsuls playable?


Any new wildlife?

Is it possible to get multiple companion creatures for a single character?


Will it be possible to get multiple companions? One of my players is very interested in his character becoming a sort of beastmaster


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Yeah, I'm hoping for guns sooner rather than later, since they're very common in my home-brew setting.


I saw that too. My guess is that theyre waiting for there to be more ancestries or else it'd be kinda lackluster

They better not replace Quinn. He's the best.

Too many things in the updated setting seem to be like "good is winning".

What you might be sensing is a side-effect of us deciding that we didn't want to arbitrarily decide some Adventure Paths are canonically failures. Forcing a group to think we assume they're a failure simply because they happened to play one such AP would be gross.

In any event, rest assured that there's still a need for heroes, and you'll see examples of that every single month in the Adventure Path installments and Pathfinder Society adventures, and now and then in adventures as well.

Is there a chance for some of the Continuing the Campaign stuff to be factored in? I know that Sorshen bringing Ileosa back as a vampire would probably not fit her character development but the whole idea of her scamming her way out of Hell was kind of awesome


6 people marked this as a favorite.

Honestly, it feels like a breath of fresh air. There's still plenty of challenges and conflicts, but it's nice to see things get better for the setting in some ways. One of few issues I had with the setting in 1e was that it felt like Golarion was so doomed by a hundred different threats that it kinda felt over the top.

Any way I like that Cressida is Queen though I wonder why the city is still back sliding?

Presumably because of a combination of factors. Though Ileosa is gone, the Sable Company was disbanded, and the Hellknights left the city. Though both could return in time it would not be easy, so the (depleted) Korvosan Guard and Grey Maidens are the only military and police force they have, which given that people don't look fondly on the Maidens is a problem. In addition, Ileosa's vanity projects drained the treasury and did a lot of damage to the city's infrastructure. Finally, I'm pretty sure Lorthact is still around and given his contract with Ileosa he's probably quite pissed about her downfall and might be sabotaging things through the Acadamae students whose souls he's stolen. All of those things mean that even a competent, fair-minded ruler like Kroft is gonna have a hard time.

Sorshen > Tar-baphon.

That'll help a lot in defending her new nation.

I stand corrected :D

(also, I kinda forgot Sorshen was CR 27 and Tar-Babhon was CR 26)

I like that there's an active, non-evil ruler who isn't vastly outmatched by the arch villains of the setting.

The one thing that I REALLY don't like is that we no longer get the quick descriptive blurbs at the beginning of the stat block. Those really helped establish the flavor of the creature and give the players a picture of what they were facing.

On the one hand, yay Cressida! On the other hand I hope Ileosa isn't QUITE down and out, given some of the Continuing the Campaign options in the anniversary edition.

Also, as someone who's great-grandparents fled Russia because of the Romanov's pogroms, I really don't mind that Anastasia's portrayed this way. Don't judge people by their forebears and all that, the real person was a child who never committed any atrocities.
