Do you want your critical hits to deal more than double damage? Want your arc rifle to have options beyond arcing to a new target? Think setting things on fire should be the beginning of what a flamethrower can do, rather than the only possibility? After you score a critical hit, draw a card and apply one of four different effects based on attack type. These cards are designed to work with the Starfinder Roleplaying Game and can be used by players and GMs alike. Even if your weapon already has critical hit effects, firing off that perfect shot has never been more fun!

Will this be available as purchase in PDF format so I can port it to Roll20, or will I be able to purchase it on roll20 directly for that matter?

I'm not sure this is a good idea for Starfinder, as critical hits are already very powerful due to not needing confirmation and often already having an additional effect for most weapons.
This was fun for Pathfinder and sold very well there, but i don't think it will work here.
Maybe i'm wrong, we'll see.

I for one wish to have it so.. Im sure it will sell well enough but we will see :)

The box art says 52 cards, the description says 53 - which will it be?

I've been using the Starfinder condition cards to good effect, but i'm not really hot for these (yet).
Some sample art would be nice.

If it's anything like the ones for Pathfinder there really won't be much artwork. Each card for Pathfinder has a bunch of different effects depending one what weapon you're using to deal the crit with so much of the card space is filled with text.

The descriptive text says "lavishly illustrated", but who knows?

It certainly makes sense to tie the cards to certain weapons, even if there are mostly ranged weapons in SF.

Personally i'd like to see some gruesome illustrations of burning aliens, sniper headshots or Han Solo frozen in carbonite after being hit by a cryo weapon. ;-)

Cute box art! :-)


Is this on pre-order at the moment, or has it come out for actual sale and shipping?

They're packing them for preorders right now, so if you order today you should get it very soon after those go out. Official street date is December 12.

Cool, thanks.

These cards are the Starfinder Accessory subscription shipment for December. I have a deck on its way to me now.


I just wish Paizo could use Paypal. My bank freaks the hell out when Paizo is involved for some reason, so I can't actually buy anything.

No confirmation roll.

Some things are just alternate crit effects--use your attack's normal critical effect, or the one on the card.
Other things are bonus effects--do your attacks normal critical AND the bonus crit effect.

Each card has crits for energy attacks, kinetic attacks, spell attacks, and one extreme effect you must match exactly (such as acid damage) in order to apply.

I took a look at the cards and decided that this product isn't something for me.

On the other hand, i would really love a "starships stats" card pack, "spells cards" pack, "Alien Archive" & a double-sized "Armory" pack! ;-)

Will there be an Android app for this?

Hey Mortification, Unfortunately we do not have any internal plans to create apps for our deck products nor do we have any current licensees interested in creating them. We'd love to have them but we just don't have the time for our tech team to create them.


RE: "lavish illustration"
There are no illustrations on the cards, save for the one on the back which you see on the box.

Could we get a PDF option for this product? I currently GM Starfinder on Roll20 and I could easily turn a PDF into a usable deck in that application.
