Is watching three different sets of cats during the same week a crazy idea? Also how much money do you think I'd need to make it to PaizoCon for three days to be able to afford things like food, hotel, gifts, and stuff?

Depends on the cats...probably not...

This Question requires some introduction.

I am writing a scenario to introduce my group to Starfinder. And we will have a party of 4 characters (Human Operative, Android Soldier, Skittermander Technomacer, and a Human Mystic) created by me, based on the Player's suggestions. The PCs will be 1st level characters.

This is where I get to the question.

I've read many reports that Starfinder Encounters are NOT like Pathfinder Encounters.

Since you have had some direct experience with the system, what would be a good "Boss" encounter CR?


With new group...I would use a CR 2 as the first Boss Encounter and see how it goes from there

So all other encounters in the scenario would be CR1 or lower?

What I am thinking is a scenario not unlike "Cries from the Drift" without the Starfinder Society elements. But I was concerned that the CRs in some of the early Society adventures were a bit much.

Yes...atleast till you get to know the system better and your players.

My players I know, they are my Pathfinder group. But that leads to a related hazard.

Oh yes. A question.

Would Particle Man be a good name for a Transmuter?

If so, what would his nemesis Triangle Man be?

True but in new campaigns I take it easy on the player's for the first adventure so they can get used to their new characters...

---- ---- ----

That would be a awesome name...though does he get wet...or does the water get Him?

Triangle man should be the nemesis of the entire party.

But these will not be their characters. My idea was to give them (and myself) a chance to see how the game plays before they commit to long term heroes.

Or, is this a "bad" move on my part?

Nobody knows.

Should "Triangle Man" be an Archer?

Once he is defeated, "Universe Man" would be a Conjurer Wizard.
Finally, "Person Man" would be a powerful ghoul lord.

Actually, based on my humorous question above: Is there a fictional "Other Genre" character or group you would like to see imported into Pathfinder?

Same question for Starfinder?

It depends on your players...for me when I am trying a new game I like to generate my character as it helps me learn the system and world...

Triangle man should be a unique monster...

And person man should be a commoner.

Mmmm....for Starfinder a order that fights like the Grammatical Clerics from the movie Equilibrium...and treecats from David Weber's Honor Harrington seris...

For Pathfinder I would love to see the Styrics and the four knightly orders from David Edding's The Elenium and Tamuli...


Anymore questions? Anybody?


Does Hero System have rules for cybernetic parts?


Storyteller Shadow wrote:

Yes...kinda of....

As with anything cybernetics would the special effect of a heightened stat or power...which you can farther show by taking advantages of disadvantages on the stat or power....and or limitions on the character....like a vulnerability to electricity.


*has another question*

If the new Doctor Who is a woman...and the Doctor is yelling at Barry Allen and the other Flashes to stop doing time travel, does that mean she's smarter than Barry Allen?

Sorry it took me so long...but...

I would just base them on what the player wants...I think it would be great to inviduelize for the player.

Yeah I would keep the state bonus..,

As the capstone...I would set them at level of what 15th level character would have...

The 2nd Edition vesion still available?

Have you seen this conversion?

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Okay going in a different direction …

What made Conan the unbelievably successful character he is today?
A quick Wiki search would get you:

Conan the Barbarian may also refer to:

  • Conan the Barbarian's fictional universe, see Hyborian Age
  • Conan the Barbarian (1955 collection), a 1955 collection of stories about the character published by Gnome Press
  • Conan the Barbarian (comics), 1970s Marvel comic series
  • Conan the Barbarian (1982 film), a film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger
  • Conan the Barbarian (2011 film), a film starring Jason Momoa
  • Conan the Barbarian (2011 collection), a collection of stories about the character published by Ballantine Books
  • Conan the Barbarian (2012-2014), an ongoing comics series from Dark Horse Comics by Brian Wood
Add to this three RPGs, innumerable pastiches, volumes of artwork, and a few AD&D adventures.

But what makes the character so enduring? I’m going to start with:

  • Gritty Action
  • Hawt Chicks (See my note below)
  • A well thought out setting
  • L. Sprague de Camp’s taking over the Conan character (after Howard’s suicide) kept the character in print.
But what else added to the continuing value of the character

(I have also cross posted this in its own thread.)

my note below

Spoiler:
Did you know that the reason that there are so many underdressed women in Conan’s stories is that Howard was paid more if his submission was the “Cover Story”?

Also, many of these female characters were far more competent then was typical of the era (the early 1930s).

It came from my friend who passed away collection...

No interest in 5th ed.


About Conan:

Other factors may be...

- The women are competent as you noted...

- It is fantasy that is not Tolkien...

- Howard's writing was interesting as you know ultimately the heroes efforts are meaningless..,,whatever they build will turn to dust...

My bad...I thought you were talking about 2nd Ed AD&D

I was. But, as a result of the conversion link, you mentioned 5E.

My reply was about (near as I can tell from the previews) Pathfinder morphing into "Advanced 5E."

Is that more clear?

Ah so it was more of a commentary on the direction you feel that Pathfinder 2nd Ed is going..,

You are not wrong...but that does not mean PF 2nd Ed is going to be terrible...

It does mean though I am keeping my 1st Ed books...as I do love that style of play...

(Here's a toughie for you.)

IF, as I have demonstrated, I like Conan The Barbarian

… Do you know of any other (non-Conan) stories I should check out?


If Thanos met with Voldemort, do you think the two of them would exchange stories about who died worse?
