Feature Creatures

The galaxy hosts a staggering array of aliens both bloodcurdling and benevolent. The pages of Starfinder Alien Archive 3 are packed with creatures designed for use with the Starfinder Roleplaying Game! From starmetal dragons and the spiral-winged irokirois to living holograms and body-snatching flayer leeches, the creatures in this codex will challenge adventurers no matter what strange worlds they're exploring. What’s more, player rules for a variety of species let players not just fight aliens, but be them! Inside this book, you'll find the following:

  • Over 100 bizarre life-forms both classic and new, from bioluminescent cephalumes and quantum-entangled oozes to natives of hyperspace and living asteroids.
  • More than a dozen races with full player rules, letting you play everything from a life-hungry undead creature to a sapient swarm of tiny insects.
  • New alien technology to help give your character an edge, including armor, weapons, magic items, and more.
  • New rules for gaining a creature companion that can accompany you as a pet, a mount, or even a fearsome combatant!

The best way to get better at GMing is to do it. Talk to your local Venture Officer and offer your services. You'll be surprised at how fast you get better at GMing.

The cover of the Alien Archive Box 3 looks much better than the cover of the actual book imo.

This is the first time that the book & box art differ from each other.

At the moment Starfinder is pretty much dead with the people i know.

As it turns out, Pathfinder Second Edition IS indeed canibalizing the interest for Starfinder.

Also the genre isn't as beloved as fantasy.

We are going to play "The Fall of Plaguestone" & probably "Hellknight Hill" asap & don't plan another Starfinder campaign after "Dead Suns" atm.

Alien Archive 3 doesn't change that, we didn't even use AA 2.

Maybe the "Character Operations Manual" will change that in november, but i doubt it.

I'm playing Against the Aeon Throne at the moment with a group of mostly 20-year-olds, and we're having a blast. As It's basically more like a big adventure than a traditional adventure path, it plays fast, and it's a lot of fun like that.

That's not how I see it...

The art for the pawn box is more akin to a place holder. We can actually see they are only different illustration, one over another.

Hyperspace? What's that? Is it like the Drift?

My guess would be that it's referring to the Drift, yeah. But for someone who isn't familiar with the setting, they'd have no idea what "the Drift" is so rather than thinking these are inhabitants of the Tokyo street racing scene, they use the term hyperspace which is an established sci fi term that most people have at least a vague idea of.

Legally, Hyperspace is also how us Third-Party publishers have to refer to the Drift. "Drift" is specifically called out as product identity that we're not allowed to use.

It's possible that FriarZero is referencing that.


Anyone know if this will be at Gencon?

It will not. This book will release next month. Street date is August 28.

Starmetal Dragons!?! (So does that mean 7 different types of Dragons)?

Random question (a player of mine would like to know) will there be kitsune playable race options in AA3 (or perhaps an upcoming adventure path)?

Just nudging this again.

Very curious about the Starmetal Dragons (will there be 7 different types)?

And a PF player of mine wants to know, will there be rules for kitsune in Starfinder, in the Alien Archive 3?

Thanks

Yep! They use the basic statistics of dragons (as presented in Alien Archive and Alien Archive 2), along with different template grafts (which add special abilities and other adjustments) for each of five starmetals: abysium, adamantine, horacalcum, noqual, and siccatite.

Nope. If you're interested in what else is in the book, I'll be talking all about Alien Archive 3 next week on the return of Starfinder Wednesday, with host Payton Smith! Join us at 1pm Pacific on August 14th.

Awesome! New "SPACE" dragons! I'm always happy with new dragons, specially true dragons. By the way, those are true dragons right?

It's sad to known there aren't going to be illustrations for each of them, but I hope to at least see all of them in the Pawn Collection. Unlike previously released dragons, those are completely new dragons.

I'm so excited!

I hope that Alien Archive 3 has 1) Kaijus and 2) Giant Robots, because my Starfinder games need Kaiju vs Giant Robot fights

The truest! We knew early on that we wanted to have a Starfinder-specific "family" of dragons, so I'm excited too.

You sound like Amanda (Hamon, our managing developer); she wrote a why-not-both kaiju mech for this book (which you can always pit against the kyokor from Alien Archive 1).

Oh heck yes. Do all of the dragons have illustrations in the book, or if not, can we find them in the pawn box? Star metal dragons are such a wicked awesome concept.

Also, are there any stats for disembodied AIs in this book, like in the Pathfinder Technology Guide? That's currently my most wanted thing in Starfinder right now, aside from expanded starship rules (exploration, space hazards in combat, ramming, and generally more starship build parts and role actions).

Amanda is a smart woman with an impeccable sense for “What this game needs.” :P

COM is adding two new starship roles, and presumably a lot more starship related goodies.
