Bring back the Species name its So Good and much more thematically appropriate for Starfinder (a Bantrid and a Entu Colony have really very little in common ancestrywise)

Thanks for the recognition everybody.

This has been an incredible journey, I have loved organized play since I happened across Living Greyhawk at a local game store when I was 16.

I love GMing for our community. I love being one of the first people who introduce the game to new people. I love GMing at the big cons, the little cons and the retail game days.

Ive slowed down a bit with a kid and all the extra responsibilities in my life but...

Bring on the 150 Starfinder 2 games!

Prepping this for tomorrow, and I have a few questions. (Spoilers, obviously)

1. How often should Barnaby have to roll deception? Once per text block? Once per Area (so once in the meeting with the mayor, once at the boat, and once at the crypt?) Or only when it explicitly says he lies?

2. How large is the hole in A3? Medium creature sized?

1. I dont have him roll ever. Thats a proactive pc thing vs his bluff dc imo.

2. I played it like the brekthroughs were too small to be traversed without squeezing

3. Short of Joseph coming in here to say otherwise, run it as only having the bite back in the tier it says it does. Maybe thats why its a variant.

Id like to take this opportunity to congratulate the 3 newest campaign coin recipients and explain why the three were awarded since people seem to like knowing what people have done to earn these.

#880 - Amie Tracey
When Asheville Scarefest began, it was the sort of retail con that many of us have run and supported over the years. Amie had the vision of making it something more than that, she moved it to Montreat College and began to execute the vision of it being a community-enhancing event for the entire Appalachian region. The vibe of the con is campy, slightly off putting humor, with fun little skits. This con has been the pillar of our community for going on 5 years now and coming out of the pandemic this con helped pull our community back from dormancy.

#881 - Robert Wiesehugel
Robert took over as Venture Captain in Knoxville at the tail end of the pandemic, not because he wanted to, but because he knew someone had to step up to lead his community. Knoxville is now a thriving and diverse community. If you've ever had a chance to game with the people from East Tennessee you'll be hard pressed to find a group that has more fun, more respect for one another than them. This community he has fostered is worth this coin twice over but Robert also helps a ton behind the scenes keeping us up to date with NDAs.

#882 Amber Howell - Amber has been a stalwart of our community for as long as Ive been involved in this campaign, which is by this point a damn long time. Amber does all the behind the scenes work for her Cookeville scene, and she and her husband Matt Travel all over the region, an almost completely reliable pair of gms at any con thats drivable for a pretty liberal definition of drivable. She has also been a relentless advocate for the campaign all over Tennessee.

Congratulations again to Amie, Robert and Amber and I am proud to have been able to award these coins to you.

I will say that the biggest challenge as an organizer in terms of getting people to GM are these two percieved factors

1) The rules seem really complicated and prospective GMs always seem to feel that "they just do not know the game well enough to run the games". There is an intimidatiom factor

1a) The game is completely asymmetrical. So just playing the game doesnt really prepare you for running the game.

2) It seems like a lot of work and a lot of money. Long-time GMs can take for granted that these scenarios are basically their own genre and things you read as second nature now can sometimes be near impenetrable for a new person. Toss in that each scenario requires 1-3 flip mats, maybe some flip tiles, and a drawn or printed custom map. From the outside, GMing looks pretty expensive both in terms of money and time invested.

There are three things I have seen done in my region that have put a dent in these two factors.

A) Some kind of reward always helps. The old boon system was great for this but there are other ways we can do this. One local VC gives every GM a free mini the first time they run a game. Another has name tags with spots for 5 glyphs. Run pnce and get the tag, get a glyph, you get a glyph on the tag.

B) Offering/promising as VO that youll be there the first few times to help with amy rules and to offer mentorship as theyre working through the scenarop. Plan ahead. Asking someone to run a game 6 weeks from now can give them a chance to take their time.

C) Have a library of resources available. One local lodge prints every adventure and every map from every adventure and lovingly cuts out and tapes together the maps. Those folders then can be lent out to whoever is going to gm. They still need to study the scenario but now maps, chronicles handours and printing are done and the investment is significantly lightened.

The downside to all this is that it DOES mean an increased investment in terms of time and treasure from the venture officers and not everyong can do all of this (including me, i barely have time to do any of this).

If my wildest dreams were to come true Paizo/OPF could offset some of this expense somehow or provide some of these resources.

It seems like a lot of the balance was down to technology.

If Michael had been equipped with Jennys gun do you think you would have come to these same conclusions regarding the balance? Because it sounds like all the nrgatives for him boiled down to the single shot weapons.

I was just looking at what species are available for play in SFS and just realized there around 40 species that are not playable. I was a bit disappointed to find Stellifera on that list, but more surprised by SROs not being playable. I just realized 1/2 the characters I've created are unplayable. Unfortunately, SFS is the only way I'm able to play Starfinder.

With time running out for Starfinder 1e I'm worried many of these will never get a chance to be played in e1 SFS. I does look like many of them are from APs not sure if that's an automatic disqualifier. But several aren't form APs so there's got to be more than one disqualifier. Any chance of making all the species playable in 1e SFS after the final season of 1e SFS, if it can't be done before?

Both are accessible via scenario boon.

First reaction:
holy crap EN World is still a thing?

Second reaction:

“The classes you will see will be unlike classes you’ve seen before," said Thurston. “The classes we are doing for Starfinder 2nd Edition are not just sci-fi versions of Pathfinder classes.”

I wonder if this means "unlike the PF2 classes that already exist" or "unlike the SF classes that already exist".

Ive been assuming the core 6 field test classes were going to be 6 of the 7 CRB classes but maybe the last two that havent been confirmed yet are going to be entirely new?

(Venture Captain hat)

When PF2 was announced, within a month I had several pf1 players drop from my community because "What's the point if they'll be unsupported in a year?' I've ALREADY had one of my players say they're dropping from SF because of the same reasons.

I can say my scene has been on life support for some time. If I lose even 2 of these people we dont have a scene and the state of the current releases has made it hard to onboard newer people while still serving the surviving few.

The pandemic really kinda murdered SFS here hard in ways it didnt PFS2. I felt it really gathering momentum hard coming out of season 2 and the 2 years of online play just took the wind right out of the sails in profoundly disappointing ways. I myself almost resigned because it felt like the campaign was dead.

But the announcement does have people asking me about the game again for the first time since the pandemic. I think a lot of people had kind of left it for dead and are delighted to see that not be the case.

As for compatibility, I think a lot of people expected SF2 to use big chunks of the P2 "engine" but not, to torture the analogy, the transmission, brakes and power steering. And that is what "compatibility" hits a lot of ears as, including my own at first glance. I have now seen you in many places say its not your intention to make things 100% directly compatible. The former makes it sound like SF2 is like...a campaign setting for P2 a la Spelljammer and the latter makes it sound like SF2 might be to PF2 what SF1 was to PF1.

Two things I'm curious to get a benchmark on: lvl 1 telepathy, and lvl 1 blindsight/sense. Just like flight, they seem like things that could upset the PF2 balance, but are fairly common (and easy to add later via itemization) in SF species. Are there many species in PF2 that start with telepathy or blindsight/sense?

For the matter, I hope blindsight/sense gets some TLC in SF2. Currently, it's useable, but there's a lot of questions and grey areas about it. Does blindsight/sense (hereafter, bss) sound or vibration work in a vacuum, what's the difference between sound and vibration anyways, do more esoteric things like bss thought or emotion require a medium to work through, can non-mindless things that are usually immune to mind-affecting stuff (like necrovites or SROs) be sensed via bss thought, what blocks various bss, and so on.

There is a very real tension between keeping common SFisms in the game and allowing for clean porting from P2ERemaster

I do hope it leans more toward the former.

My guess is the soldier field test is just one example of what a Soldier can do and focused on testing new ideas for the class. The field test document refers to itself as a snippet of the soldier.

That is literally what it is, yes ^^. Though probably less "new" stuff (everything is new after all) and more the basic feel of the class.

I think people are heavily overestimating how far along SF2 is in development. Essentially anything that isn't the basic PF2 math and system is most likely subject to change.

Dustin said "a year" roughly on the keynote stream.

I think the Soldier is neat as a class for PF2e, but it's really narrow as one of 6 starting classes for a new game.
That's pretty much my take on it as well. Admittedly, we're only feeling a small part of the elephant right now, but "burly dude/dudette with big gun" seems more like a subclass than a full class to me. If you have a full class about that sort of thing, I wonder where folks like Ka D'Argo, Drax the Destroyer, Finn, Ronon Dex, Amos Burton, or Jayne Cobb will be. I mean, they can't all be Operatives.

I mean....Fighter.

I really think this "First level ancestry abilities" concern is quite overblown.

Humans in Starfinder get a bonus feat at level 1 and an extra skill rank each level.

Humans in PF2 can get the exact same thing, and then *also* awesome choices at 5, 9, 13, and 17, and a bonus one at 3rd if they take a general feat.

Androids in Starfinder get a bonus vs biological and mind affecting stuff, darkvision, penalty to social stuff, and an armor upgrade slot.

Androids in PF2 get a bonus vs biological stuff, low light vision, penalty to social stuff, a first level feat that could be an internal compartment, and a choice of much more impactful stuff from a variety of heritages, and then *also* awesome choices at 5, 9, 13, and 17, and a bonus one at 3rd if they take a general feat.

It's clear that there is quite a bit of room at level 1 for interesting stuff. We know early access to flight is already on the table, and yeah cheek pouches being kept back until later levels is weird, but I don't see all the upsides people are talking about.

Its mostly the same to be honest because you got all the stuff you got at level 1 and if you wanted more later racial feats were a thing.

The difference is you didnt often have to piecemeal together your basic features like your wings or darkvision etc so you had a pretty potent core of abilities, which you could then improve if you wanted to.

It sounds to me from further interviews that they plan to not be slavishly devoted to clean 1 to 1 ports of mechanics from P2e so we may yet see some loosening in areas where P2 is very conservative, including flight climbing and burrowing. So i will be very anxious to see what they cook up for the Kasatha and Kiirinta and the like

I didn't think so. I have a suspicion that the cantina is going to get a lot more crowded. Is that a group of demon-hunting orcs whose ancestors were doing the same in the Mwangi expanse? Is that the famed iruxi scientist from one of their worlds? How will the changeling bartender, the kitsune cook, and the staff of anadi, nagaji, shoonies and others keep up?
Hmm, just how many playable ancestries are there in PF2 right now? It’s not 124 or near that though, right? But not a tiny number either…So even though they might not have the same wow factor of SF ancestries, they can go a way toward bridging the gap between SF2’s starting number and subsequent releases. Also, conrasu say hi.

Its true that theres a lot of ancestries but they are largely fantasy-coded not sci-fi coded and that is an important distinction.

But like...we will get there somehow and hell we will probably get there faster not having to waste bookspace on space elves or space dwarves

I mean it does genuinely feel like "its gonna be like P2" is the only real selling point which is meh. And I do play both games alot. *gestures towards his glyphs and novas*

Im not really happy or sad about the new edition.

I like P2 well enough but its old hat by this point. I know what it is at this point its not exciting or sexy or anything like that in and of itself. There isnt a whole lot of mystery waiting to be unfolded.

That's more what I think Kish is getting at - its not got any real selling point for people who actually like Starfinder already beyond "hey your games not getting moth balled".

Itll maybe be nice to see some new faces at the starfinder table I guess but thats like two years away still.

On the brightside converting your favorite SF1 species to SF2 will probably be a fruitful Starfinder Infinite hobby.

Second Seekers (Roheas)

It will certainly be harder for scenario writers to just drop a random new playable species in a starfinder society scenario but I do think this is a potential benefit to the game being 100% cross compatible.

We already have mechanics for a lot of species so they will be able to focus on just the most alien ones. I imagine there will be full mechanics for all the common pact world and scoured star species from early on. Especially since Ysoki, Android, and Human plus all the "legacy" species already have mechanics.

First of all, I am not speculating; let me quote the FAQ for you:

Will new classes just be old classes IN SPAAAAAAAAAAAACE?

Classes in Starfinder are going to be their own bespoke classes that operate alongside the existing set of Pathfinder classes.

Theyre already explicitly telling us this is how its going to work and if you watched the announcement stream they really couldnt have been any more explicit about their intent.

Second while the fighter class is the same one used in Pathfinder its not like he is gonna use a holy avenger longsword. He is gonna use the same Reaction Cannon the soldier is or a doshko or something and still use Sudden Charge or Power Attack as normal.

I want to be clear I dont think this even necessarily is a bad thing, they still have a solid chance of nailing the flavor anyway even without their own mechanical engine.

But I think being in denial that its what this is gonna be is weird.

Second Seekers (Roheas)

With the remaster on its way its extremely possible that that IS within the new standard design parameters of PF2 to be fair; thats a pretty minor thing.

This is the part that I just dont think is true or else Soldier wouldnt look the way it does.

Actually, I wouldn't be too surprised if they eased up on the "remove as much overlap as possible" approach as they get into the meat of the design process. They're going to find that filling gaps in the SF2 lineup with PF2 classes isn't really an option, and some level of class overlap isn't the end of the world. Two classes across a system border can be more similar than you would allow within one system, and they could all still work together without too much drama if a table wants to do that.

I think the Operative/Rogue will highlight this.

Well my point is I dont think they even percieve much of a system border on the mechanical level.

I really dislike that they killed Starfinder and released a DLC for 2e with the same name and people fell for it. The biggest loss will be species, Starfinder has a lot of cool unique species that have cool stuff but not they will all be watered down to work with PF2e ancestries.

In PF2e you can be a pixie that can't fly (until lv9) or a spider that can't climb (until lv9), etc. I hate that following that principle most species will lose the time most campaigns are over.
We will also be losing most of our cool species since I doubt they are making that many unique feats to fill all of the ones we have.

They probably will be handled differently, even if they have the same framework. There's a Roll For Combat interview with the developers where they talk about this.

Starfinder 2e will definitely be its own thing and work under different expectations. Specially regarding weapons (with their higher capacities) and Flying abilities.

So I expect that while not front loaded as they were before in SF, they will still keep their core physical attributes.

So, while the framework is the same, the developers will be designing with a different baseline in mind.

Funny thing is most of the guns in the field test actually need reloaded MORE often than the guns in Pathfinder do at the moment. Hopefully they iron that out, but I did find it funny.

Im also not sure how theyre gonna handle flight while maintaining simple 1 to 1 cross compatibility. It will be interesting to see where the compromise gets made.

If this is what it takes for Starfinder brand to survive then so be it but I am not thrilled by having the setting be a subsystem of PF2e because then it may well become Pathfinder in SPAAAACCEEE rather than its own distinct brand. Still, on the optimistic side, making Starfinder 2E compatible with PF2e can open doors for cross-play, broader story arcs, and a unified player base. Time will tell.

Pretty much where I am too.

I knew the 3.X elements were gone but I was really hoping Starfinder would make some advancements on P2 - at this point 5ish years into Pathfinder 2 I think we can all identify the pain points of its design philosophy and all have our own homebrewed ways of dealing with them. I thought SF2 would be a great time to see professionals try to tackle the beast but I guess its not to be.

Anyway to borrow the format for the topic

I am the Regional Venture Coordinator for the Appalachian region and was one of the first 5 nova gms. I LOVE just about everything about Starfinder 1.

GOOD

Its early yet but Im glad they ditched Reynolds for the art and have gone in a new direction. Anything to help Starfinder really pop as its own thing is a massive positive in my book.

I think the new rules for emphasizing big explodey guns are really interesting even if theyre in sort of a rough unrefined state in the current field test

BAD

I REALLY do not think fantasy style pantheon worship is something I want in my Science Fantasy. Its barely an element I like in my Fantasy fantasy but its an old sacred cow thats never gonna die. But for me religion and its place in a world with high technology really shouldnt look and feel the same as it does in old golarion and stuff like Zon-Shelyn just rubs me the wrong way. I dont buy that anyone would care unless all the god drama was playing out as a days of our lives style soap opera on the vidsphere.

I know cross compatibility is gonna be a thing, but the Pathfinder classes really all place a premium on close quarters, melee oriented combat. I want lasers to reign supreme in my Starfinder and I hope they find a way to keep the game more ranged combat oriented despite having all the Pathfinder Classes available.

HOPE:

I hope that they are somehow able to, despite this goal of full and easy cross-compatibility, to keep Starfinder as a distinct game somehow, instead of being reduced to being a setting book for P2 like Spelljammer is for 5e.

I hope that the technology can still be the star of the show in this setting despite now having 10 level casters.

I hope in general that Starfinder still feels like Starfinder with all the flight and kablooey and computers and all of that and doesnt end up feeling like Pathfinder with spaceships.

I mean it is very clearly the #1 design goal and percieved selling point for Starfinder that it be 100% cross compatible.

I would have much rather seen this game try to advance and improve on P2s engine rather than copy it myself. But easy and full compatibility is just so clearly the bedrock of the design philosophy they have done to this point and I do not anticipate any amount of feedback shifting them from that.

I do think as a design goal it is extremely disappointing; Starfinder has always had its own vibes and I dont think they match pathfinders 1 to 1. I think Starfinder will have to give up some of it's identity in order to be fully cross compatible with Pathfinder. But its gonna be what its gonna be, we can only hope they really nail the equipment/enhancements and tech aspects to help it still feel distinct from the fantasy game.

Back on topic somewhat, I anticipate all 6 classes are going to be the sort of niche experience the soldier is. I dont anticipate the 6 are necessarily even going to be 6 of the 7 from the starfinder core book.

After all we dont need a generic fightyman or generic magic-user; Wizard and Fighter are gonna be usable. So maybe technomancer doesnt make the jump. Do we need an operative when we have a rogue? We are gonna find out I guess. What does mechanic do that Inventor doesnt already do? Maybe we see Biohacker and Precog instead.

I recognize they are a long shot because they require some developer work, but in PFS1 I loved having the ability to join the Ruby Prince's Undying Guard, or being able to buy a minor noble title in Taldor or to have my own pirate ship or a theater in Absalom.

Why are you bothering Jon about this sort of thing?

I have seen you posting here and several community discords and it sure seems to me like you do absolutely nothing but go around sniffing for fights about organized play.

Cannot help but notice you dont have a single organized play character registered.

I think a lot of your concerns are purely theoretical and if you actually played the campaign you would feel pretty silly about the amount of concern youre projecting over purely hypothetical situations that would never ever come up as negative realities in a game.

I beg of you - either make a character and play some games so you can be disabused of this toxic fantasy of yours about how terrible our campaign is or just STOP please.

I am very confused about the way horses are handled.

I liked that they were inclusive enough to add language that allows a horse to be medium so my halfling champion can ride around on a divine pony.

But I cannot take any of the feats that would improve that mount without it increasing size to large and ending up unrideable for my halfling.

Other than asking my GM nicely, is there any way to prevent this from happening? Is this an oversight we can get an FAQ for?

You strike me as the type of highly intelligent individual who walks into a McDonalds, sees with a keen observant eye that all the sodas are 1$, then angrily demands to see the manager and ask him why if he can sell a large soda for 1$ you can't get a Quarter Pounder for the same price.

Cope and seethe, boycott Paizo, whatever. Don't insult my intelligence by comparing a book publishing company with a model-producing company that releases books on the side.

Listen, I promote paizo products all over all the time - look at my profile check the profile before you accuse me of wanting to burn down the house.

The pdf coming with subscription but not the hardcover in the store has long been a sore point for retailers - anyone who is properly obsessed with Paizo is eventually gonna switch off buying from the retailer to buying direct from Paizo.
