The Pact Worlds are the beating heart of the Starfinder campaign setting, a solar system full of citizens both familiar and bizarre. From the cosmopolitan corridors of Absalom Station to the carnivorous jungles of Castrovel or the floating cloud-cities of the gas giant Bretheda, this hardcover rulebook is your guide to Starfinder's core worlds and civilizations, and the perfect place to launch any adventure.

Inside, you'll find:

  • In-depth gazetteers of the system's 14 major worlds, from high-tech Verces and the draconic empires of Triaxus to the necromantic wastleands of Eox or magical bubble cities floating on the surface of the sun. Each gazetteer features a detailed world map, residents and cultures, settlements and adventure locations, a unique theme to customize characters from that world, and more.
  • New playable alien races, from undead Eoxians to Castrovellian plant-people.
  • New starships, from the living vessels of the Xenowardens to sinister Hellknight dreadnoughts.
  • A codex of themed NPC stat blocks to help Game Masters create vivid encounters.
  • New archetypes for every class, including the Star Knight, Skyfire Centurion, and Divine Champion.
  • Tons of new weapons, armors, spells, feats, magic items, technological gadgets, and more to help outfit your adventurers.

Good Setting Overview.

4/5

I picked this book up in an LGS I play in regularly, and what a great introduction to the Pact Worlds setting. I had played the 'Into The Unknown' introduction adventure, but the lack of exposition made the adventure hard for me to immerse into.

This book makes the setting come alive, and the art compliments the good writing rather than having to make up for any lack in it.

I took away a star for the continuing lack of deckplans for playable ships. In a Sci Fi setting the party's ship fast becomes a character, and the lack of a deckplan is a severe handicap.


Space Worlds

5/5

A very good, solid, well illustrated, rich... book on the Starfinder setting.
Great as a DM, as a player to flesh out your character's background.
Super nice!


A great setting book!

5/5

Setting books are absolutely crucial for rpgs, in my opinions, it's what defines exactly why you love what you are playing at. For a sci-fantasy game such as this, a rich setting book is even more essential, as you are breaking new ground, and you need to do it in an epic, memorable way. This books does it in spades. The world building, the player hooks (arguably some of the most valuable content of this book), illustrations, playable options, starship travel and types (oh my the starships are gorgeous!), NPCs, factions, equipment, spells... this book has all you need to make the Pact Worlds your home and make them come to life in your mind. Even if your campaign takes place in the Great Beyond, you will still enjoy this book and find its exciting lore, and beautiful narration very useful. It's true that it might not be as rich as Pathfinder's Inner Sea setting book, but I find this one more than fulfilling. Looking forward to expansions for the Great Beyond or even a deep dive into the Drift!


I love this book

5/5

Starfinder has become my favourite rpg so far, right after Pathfinder... One of the things I love the most is the lore, so this book is full with it, think your Campaign Setting book... while not as big as the Inner Sea Wolrd Guide, aldo of my favourite books, still is a good purchase. I would just love if the Starfinder books would be as big as the Pathfinder, or at least, if they are not the same size, then they should not be sold at the same price. Anyway, great book, a must if you are planning to play Starfinder in the core setting which, by the way, is awesome!

If anyone wouldn't mind, could you give me a rough description of the new races? On top of this, are there any monster stats in the book or is it purely sentient NPCs that get statblocks?

Spoiler:

Astrazoans (Medium Aberration) - 7 limbed human sized starfish with an eye on each limb.
Bantrids (Small Aberration) - Kinda look like an organic upside down microphone but with eyes and sprouting hands.
Borais (Medium Undead) - Mostly dead creatures which retain part of their soul (varies based on the base CRB race)
Khizar (Medium Humanoid - Plantlike) - Vine people with a flower head (but cooler looking than that sounds).
Sros (S or M Construct) - Sentient Robotic Organism - pretty much says it all.
Strix (Medium Humanoid) - Winged humanoids ala PF. Sweet artwork. Similar mechanically to PF.

No monster stat blocks that I recall. Havent had an indepth read yet.

Is there any new equipment? What about feats? Inquiring minds want to know, and if there is a "yes" involved, a general list!


So is Aucturn just the amazing summer home every budding young spawn of Yog-Sothoth dreams of owning?


are the races written in Core Rulebook format or Alien Archives Format?

IMO neither really. But closer to AA than CRB I guess.

Steward Officer: Interplanetary Peacekeepers. Get things based around Diplomacy, Culture and Combat.

There are some sample NPCs for cultists, the Free Captains, Hellknights, mercenaries, security forces and street gangs. Nothing especially dedicated to gods or threats, besides maybe in the individual world's sections.

Nothing outside the Golarion system, but well, this is the Pact Worlds book.

That's a joint effort between Alex Augunas and myself.

Since I am the developer, he deserves all praise, and I deserve all condemnation. :)

Maybe someone asked that I missed but has anyone seen any info on the Divine champion archetype? I'd love any tidbit I can get while the wait continues :-P


In the weapons section what kind of sniper weapons are there? The Horizon Striker line sounds like it is.

Turns your SF character into a PF Paladin ...complete with SF analogues of Smite Evil , Divine Grace and spells. I’ve named PF Paladin abilities here but they are not the same. Maybe distant relatives perhaps.

Correct. Generally speaking these ones have longer range increments but smaller damage.

Would anyone mind giving a sentence or two about the Arcanamirium Sage archetype or the Dragonblood or Roboticist themes (and which ability scores they add to)?

Spoiler:

Close Combat: gives you defensive bonuses against opponents you are not in melee range with.

Divine Blessing: you pick one of the 20 deities in the CRB and get a benefit. They are all quite different.

Xenolash: advanced melee weapon. It’s a whip with your typical whip abilities.

Kalo Shredder: magnetism powered long arm.

Spoiler:

The Sage is all about magic and hybrid items.

Dragonblood (Cha) - the abilities are around draconian traits (because you actually have draconian blood). Although I don’t think I can really do it justice without spelling it out.

Roboticist (Int) - you are interested in machines and how they work. Good way to get some Mechanic like flavour / abilities without actually being one.

went in and corrected but now having to wait to get pdf and book shipped :(


I don't suppose there are any new powered armor options by any chance...? If there are new PAs, what levels are they? =D

Neat! That's pretty much what I was hoping for. About to start a new campaign and I was really hoping the archetype would be something along those lines for this character.


Oh man! I heard about this coming out way back, but I had no idea it has so much new content! Given all the new PC options, this is definitely gonna be a must buy for me! It even comes out on my birthday! ...This is gonna be a long two weeks.

Regarding the actual content,

Spoiler:
Close Combat
definitely sounds fun! I imagine it'd synergize well with a reach weapon, which my SFS character just so happens wield!

Also, could someone please provide information on what the

Spoiler:
Gladiator
archetype provides? Thanks in advance!

Knowing my luck, I'll probably not have my shipping notice until next week.

In the mean time, would anyone be willing to share the ability score bonuses of the new races? Particularly interested in the SROs and Astrazoans.

It does seem a little weird. I hope we can get some more class options in the core line soon. I do like the sound of these archetypes though. If they're worth taking, I suppose they're essentially new class options.


I mean I guess yeah but id figured theyd put mroe efforts into making new class faetures

I was sort of hoping something on the Veskarium would be included, seeing as they are Pact Worlds members..... No?
