It's All White Now!

3/5

Wow! It's a good thing they made everyone white! I suppose it's hard to sell firearms AND brown people in power at the same time so clearly sacrifices were made.

A good adventure brought down by horrible art direction and thoughtless execution. Also no gazetteer whatsoever of Alkenstar in the Alkenstar AP.

It's Morbin time!

1/5

Like Morbius, the Drift Crisis is a huge letdown and not worth your time. Spend your money elsewhere.

Time of Troubles... In Space!!!!

3/5

It's a good book with interesting plot hooks and artwork but it is NOT the cosmic catastrophe that it's been hyped out to be and is just a vehicle for advancing the metaplot slightly forward without any substantial long term changes.

The best city map ever published!

5/5

Give designer Adam Daigle and cartographer Matthias Rothenaicher a huge, huge round of applause!!

Now that that's out of way, go buy this map! You'll figure out where to put it later.

Seriously, this is hand's down the best RPG city map I've ever seen.

*Standing ovation!*

A great book! Very inspirational!!

5/5

First of all, I've never really been interested in Absalom, other than the cool stuff regarding the Starstone. That said, I love this book and could find inspiration in it for years to come. Especially coupled with the book of the Grand Bazaar (which I'm extremely thankful to Paizo for splitting into it's own book as that's the only way to properly cover a market of that size and scope.

I've been reading it all day since I got home from work and I honestly haven't noticed anything about slavery, so I'm not sure what previous reviewers are upset about. And I have no idea who this other guy that everyone is upset over is so I can't say anything about that but if you're looking for an expansive and evocative metropolis for your campaign or you're running any of the countless adventures set in or around Absalom they've released in the last three years then I highly, highly recommend this!

Coral! Where's Coral?!!

5/5

An incredibly fun RPG from a surprisingly unrepresented genre in RPGs with the cheesy art we've all come to expect from Palladium Books. If you ever wanted to play as Rick Grimes searching for his son Coral this is the place for you!

A Universe at your fingertips!

5/5

A great product with a ton of possibilities!

My one complaint is it can get really cluttered if you end up with a planet with six different creatures or aliens living there.

The rules were super easy to grasp, and I say that as someone who struggles mightily with card games more complicated than War!

I highly recommend it!

Amazing Little Book with Infinite Possibilities!

5/5

In case you can't tell, I'm a pretty big fan of Starfinder so I was pretty excited to see this on the release schedule. I love it so much I bought one for myself and then when I saw what a sturdy and easy to read book it was I got one for a friend.

My only complaint is, it didn't come with a towel.

Flashing Less Skin Then Jesus.

5/5

It's a great, well written and beautifully illustrated book with impeccable editing, though I am disappointed that there isn't as much skin as previous reviews led me to believe. Still, despite being less sexualized than certain other publications I'm incredibly impressed with all the hard work and love that everyone put into this book.

And at least there's an equal amount of beefcake (Kurgess and Grusathatha (sp?) I'm looking at you!) to balance the deities out.

I'm very impressed with the player options, especially more spells and all the deities included in the table at the back of the book.

I'd give it ten stars if they'd let me.

Exactly what I needed!

5/5

As someone that has struggled making characters without a character sheet these are a god send! Yes, the fighter sheet is a bit wonky and I have to make photocopies but the amount of time saved make this more than worth the money for me.

Awesome Book! Ten Stars!!

5/5

I absolutely love almost everything about this book, thank you for the new classes!

Every class will inspire countless character ideas, and I especially love that the symbol for the Vanguard class is a fist comet flying through space.

The only part I personally didn't care for (and I absolutely accept is a matter of personal taste) is the alternate racial ability adjustments, but that's just me.

I love the artwork (especially the three new iconic characters).

I wish they had a few more spells but I understand they were crunched for time and Hillary Moon Murphy actually covers that ground in the psychic magic article in Hive of Minds so no worries.

I'd give the book ten stars if I could!... Oh, what the heck, I'll just put some extra star stickers on my copy!

Ten stars! All hail the Fist Comet!!

Awesome!

5/5

I love it!

It's fun, easy to run with an interesting backstory, I can't wait for part two!

My only complaint is the toolbox seems a bit disorganized, but I'm sure Paizo is working on that as they've never shied away from evolving the Adventure Path line.

I'd pay top dollar for whatever product that has the Anadi ancestry.

Not sure how having sympathetic goblins equates to SJW status, whatever that means.

At any rate, anything to stick it to D&D 5th edition!

I see dead people!

5/5

I love the beginning, but definitely could have used more of the Boneyard. I thought the addition of some of the creatures would have caused dissonance with the group but they loved it!

My one complaint about the adventure is it had too many puzzles, those were not fun but with a bit of nose leading and hand waving we were able to make it through without too much frustration.

I love the Boneyard toolbox, especially the archetypes.

The Half Dead article was spot on, even though it was for races we almost never play as.

To Exceed Their Grasp was a wonderful addition I wasn't expecting.

And of course, the bestiary was top notch!

Overall, I thought I was going to get a lot of grief from the players in this one but was pleasantly surprised at how much fun everyone had, kudos to Paizo!

I'm satisfied with the ending.

5/5

Overall, I rather like the adventure, the side bar on how to switch things up was very well done I thought (for the record If I run Tyrant's Grasp I will be using the side bar ending instead).

While this AP has issues in earlier installments, this one isn't among them.

The developer showcase is also really solid though I'm disappointed Mark and Thursty used their space for advice instead of something else, it's still good advice and certainly not worth knocking off a star.

I especially liked the inclusion of Iblydan hero gods, as well Angradd and Nocticula 2.0.

Stranger Things!

5/5

Whether you're running Strange Aeons, your own Lovecraft inspired campaign or you want to go in Stranger Things territory this is the set for you!

So, so many weird monsters and tentacles you won't know which of your party to kill or drive insane first!

Get The Drift!

5/5

This book is worth the price just with the article answering all your Drift questions and the starship on the inside front and back covers.

Also there's an adventure, a cloud giant (a planet, not an actual giant), and a bunch of beasties ready to maul your player characters.

But really, all you need is the drift.

And i thought i didn't need this one!

5/5

I had thought when Bestiary 6 came out I wouldn't need it.

How wrong was I!

This book will definitely take it's place as one of the essential Pathfinder books in my collection, if you're waiting to get this, don't! Get it now!

Well done Paizo!

My one complaint is mine had the same s#%#ty yellow binding glue as the first printing of the Starfinder CRB, but I'm not dropping the rating because it is that good (also I still have binding glue leftover from my Starfinder CRB).

A great set!

5/5

Overall a great set, but I was disappointed that there wasn't new Skittermanders or any of the other new races.

With future sets it would be super cool for more variations of the playable races, like Skitttermander mechanics or Barathu Technomancers.

But, I'm not going to let my personal preferences drag down the star rating of a very good set, so good job Paizo, give yourselves a round of applause!

Yay! Shifters!! And I don't need a PhD in English to try to figure out how the f#$! it's supposed to work.

Two plant races even! And faeries!!

I don't really get into archetypes that much anymore, but these! These look fun!!

Ever since Ultimate Intrigue I've been waiting for pathfinder to give the same treatment for the wilds, and they did not disappoint!

Great job Paizo! Keep up the great work!

Resistance Is Futile...

5/5

...All will be assimilated.

First of all, you won't find space orcs here.

But you will find a dragon, some goblins and of course, somewhere handy and tentacled to store your brain, and in the end, isn't that what's really important (I'm seriously asking).

Overall a great book with a lot of fun aliens that make great enemies or a really f+~@ed up crew for the Enterprise.
Playable races run the gamut of intelligent space jellyfish (Barathu), Contemplatives (floating brain people), Dragonkin (dragon people), Nuar (space Minotaur), Urog (silicon based mutable worm people), to space goblins, Skittermanders (Stitch) and reptoids.

While smaller then a typical Bestiary, they pack a ton of inspiration, adversaries, and imagination into those 160 pages, well worth the money, especially if you love Starfinder as much as I do.

As far as Paizo's customer service, I've been a subscriber for two years now (and a customer through my local FLGS before that) and I've had nothing but great experiences with them, even when didn't make it easy on them they handled all requests and questions with class and aplomb.

And yes, the spine is great. :-)

So, grab your lightsaber, check your tricoder batteries, make sure you have a towel and keep a wary eye on your crew (anyone could be a Cylon) because it's only gonna get better!
