Here's an idea: Mothmen and other Cryptids from the Bestiary! Fits in great with the setting.

I'm afraid I'm gonna need stats on a metal folding chair and kendo sticks.

None of these are canon. Also, use the First Rule and make your game you own.

Oh, Aaron...you don't know annoying I can be with my letters and blogging endless begging.

Yeah, never go by the art. Four different artists will paint or draw the same thing differently and even the same artist will add little variations unconsciously. Case in point: The difference between the cover troll and the interior troll in the Bestiaries has long been a running joke.

Go by the written description, that's why it's there.

Good news, we've got fetchlings. They're just called kayal now.
That's always been an alternate name for the race. I was not, however, aware that they had officially made it into Starfinder yet; still not entirely caught up.
I think they're in the signal of screams alien archives.

They are indeed and since that entire AP deals with the Shadow Plane, it's a fitting place for them. Also the art for the Kayal is effing tight.

...And I await the moment when Paizo realizes this is the most exciting, goofy thing since Otterfolk and Platyparians and just gives into the pressure.

I love how we know these are jokes yet we genuinely see their use in game.

Skinwalkers/werecreatures sure. But I'm also confused as to why

Because the one thing the setting is missing at the moment is all the Demi-human half breeds who made Pathfinder so wild. Aliens are great but give me something weird from birth and full of body horror.

A planetary system orbiting around a White Dwarf that has consumed inner planets of the system and now in a few thousand years, the highly populated planets on the outer rim of the system are also in danger of being consumed. The knowledge that their culture and homeworlds are going to die gives the inhabitants a need for instant gratification and a rush for experience and danger.

CorvusMask: It is not a space pirate AP. It is a space trucker AP. As far as alignment goes, I expect most characters will be some version of Neutral, but important moral and ethical choices are an important part of this AP, so what you do and how you treat others WILL matter.

Toxicsyn: Yes! All three of those were influences (but there are a lot of other influences too).

Porridge: Yes! Chris Sims, former Starfinder Developer, wrote it; it's in the back of the first volume and includes new themes, gear, and player backgrounds to tie your character into the adventure.

So hey, my real name is Daniel and I have a story to tell:

Over the course of about three or four years, I've had a lot of strange brushes fate that sort of gave me a weird reputation as a minor Starfinder Super Fan. I used to do a Facebook info blast and I had some stuff published in Wayfinder.

A while back I got the chance to actually interview for a job with Paizo, sadly I didn't get the gig but it was a thrill to have a video conference with some of the people who put their names in the books on my shelf.

And today, something really funny happened: I found out that an idea that I pitched to Owen KC Stephens on Facebook, just a one-off crazy thing, actually made it into one of Owen's books: Uplifted Owl Bears are a real third party race.

That warms my damn heart. It warms me up that a simple fan can have even a tiny interaction with the people who make the thing he's a fan of and learn that The creators of Starfinder and Pathfinder are themselves fans of you, even in a small way. That's kind of awesome and something to remember as you're isolated, at home and maybe separated from loved ones or friends. You are still part of at least one community, this one. And they're happy to have you.

Once upon a time, I recommended that they bring back several Pathfinder monsters but with a Sci-Fi Twist:

Uplifted Owl Bears
Plastic Eating Monsters (Rust Monsters)
Imperial Aboliths (Who now rule over a vast empire)
Dimensional Companions (Blink dogs)
Machine Elves (Formerly Ice Elves)
Star Furies (Erinyes who now lay waste to entire planets)
Etc.

I would be so happy if they surprised us with a vast Kobold empire rivaling the vesk and the azlanti. Just, "Oh, by the way, Kobolds in the future are a Big Deal."

Of course, the Kobolds have an Empire...who do you think the Platyparians are at war with?

I am working on something right now you are going to really like.

We're all just going to call him Suitcase, so you may as well shorten it now.

Hmmmm...Starfinder trucker lingo? What would that sound like?

"Howdy y'all, This here's Suitcase, I'm on the Absalom Run with a Billy Goat on the dead pedal blockin' mah Drift exit and I've been in granny gear for six light years, so I'm looking for a way station to check mah nav and get some monkey blood for the rig but I don't want no smokies in no nightcrawlers checking mah speed on the way there. Anybody out there know a place with some good rations? And you'd better say it quick, we got stellar interference throwing nine pounds at my receiver, over."

I think, given the heavily Lawful nature of the Veskarium, the answer would more likely be "Yes, just show me your licenses. All of your licenses. " :P

"Everything here seems to be in order... just one thing. You're under arrest."

"Arrest? Why?!"

"You don't have your license to carry licenses. It's criminal scum like you that threaten the care-free order of the Veskarium."

"News of the Empire: Today the Hammers of the Vesk have pounded down the threat of foreign dogs who dared to purchase items without having the licenses for having the proper licenses. Our long national nightmare is now over."

So I rediscovered an old Stuart Gordon movie, Space Truckers, and it got me thinking: how do you imagine blue-collar workers in the Starfinder Universe? I mean we know they exist, Starfinder Scenarios showed us a giant battery factory in solar orbit, working-class slums on Absalom Station and fluff mentions exploitative mining practices on Akiton.

So what's a working Joe look like to you in Starfinder?


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Society Subscriber

A galaxy map would sort of go against Paizo's unstated policy of not "filling in the entire map" of their game settings. At most, we'll get a rough, unmarked overview like the continents map they made for Golarion

Samasarans and Aphorites would be damn fine! Duskwalkers would be strange considering Eox I wonder how a race basically gifted life by Pharasma would feel about Eox.

Of course, the Pahtra have a planet on the edge of the system...they think they're too cool for the rest of the Veskarium

According to this they do, but this is just their main system. A bit like how the Pact Worlds have a bunch of rando colonies out there.

Archetypes can't be taken at level 1, earliest you can get one is level 2.

But tell me more! Like have a high BAB-based slug, a skill expert slug, and a casting slug?

Let's say that your slug is a different species depending on your base class. One slug grants you skills to go with your operative skills, maybe one gives you a growing CHA bonus for Envoy or an extra maneuver for a Soldier. Imagine a magic friendly slug who gooses your spell casting, etc etc. The fluff could even be something fun too, with a sybiend that has a different alignment than you.

Do they have to announce it? After the starship book it's the most obvious choice.

Just like the first Vast book and the gods books. They are inevitable.

None of those are "inevitable"

A Pet class would be a fun idea, something like an alien animal handler.
Someone mentioned a Primal/anti-tech class, that could be cool.
The Shifter from Pathfinder wasn't accomplished very well but maybe it could be made into a genetically engineered warrior, something more interesting than the augmented archetype.

Another good resource (assuming you want to keep diving into Pathfinder) is the Inner Sea Races pathfinder book (which I THINK is where the Azlanti PC stats are) also the Ruins of Old Azlant AP and the Return of the Rune Lords AP (The country of New Thassilon is populated by people descended from ethnic Azlanti and that AP deals directly with the worship of Aroden, Nocticula and Lissala).

For the Original Poster:

Here is some background on the Pathfinder race, Azlanti. Note that they are supposed to be basically extinct in that game (Starfinder basically tells us that isn't true).
