Everything you could want in a beginner box

*****

Painfully easy introduction to the Starfinder universe. Interesting pre-made characters and a step by step guide to building your own. The map is gorgeous and when you're done you flip it over for a blank map. Easily the best beginner box I've had experience with.

In the past, this wasn't true. Many products, which were not part of a subscription, were offered with a free PDF to those who pre-ordered and were subscribed to a "matching" line.

Those were the exceptions, not the standard.

The only two that come to mind are the collected editions of RotRL and CotCT.

Flip-Map Classics also work this way.

So basically reprints more or less got the treatment.

Quick question — would it be possible to get the blank character sheets from this posted?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Would those character sheets be in any way different from the ones that can be found here?

Anyone else who got their Beginner Box get one yellow base mixed in with the otherwise all black bases?

Anyone know what the reasoning for that is?

Not mad or concerned, by the way, just curious. :D

The pawn bases in the Alien Archive boxes have been like that, too.

I think it's just to draw people's attention to the fact non-black bases now exist as an option.

Paizo Employee Creative Director, Starfinder

Starfinder Pawn bases can be purchased in a variety of colors (such as orange, purple, and yellow). The extra colored base is a freebie to show that other colors are available.

If you’ve got two identical enemies, different base colors are handy so you don’t need to remember Mook A vs Mook B for recording damage. If you’ve got 3+ enemies, it’s good for distinguishing a leader or an ally.

Is this suddenly available for purchase??? It wasn't supposed to be available until the 24th but it seems that is not the case... anyone know if this is for real?

You can subscribe/preorder it now, but the street date isn’t until the 24th.

Ok but they just posted a video on YouTube saying available now and on this page it changed from "preorder" to "Add Print Edition." Its just confusing is all.

If you put in an order now you'll probably get it around or a little after the street date is what it is.

Ordered this yesterday and received it today. Awesome product. Definitely going to use this to teach the game to my kids and wife before we start our Dead Suns adventure!


Yay!

Darn! I never saw this. I usually don't preorder stuff (subscribe, yes, but not preorder separate things), and just figured pdf options for this would be no go so wasn't watching the product thread. Would be nice to have announcements like this on the front page (and if I missed that it's on me). Of course I'm one of the people who just wishes this would have been part of the subscription, so. Maybe I can talk a friend into getting me the pdf for my birthday in a couple months.

Great work Joe and team!

Just got my copy and it looks fantastic. I hope there’s a thirty two page follow up “beginners guide to starships” in the works. A book like that would be useful, even for experienced players, I think.

I wasn't fishing for presents, but your generosity is most appreciated, anon. :)

Some of those look like errors rather than simplifications.
