General Discussion

The Appendix of the GameMastery Guide and other books, there's a list of books, movies, and even songs that were used or can be used for inspiration by the Devs and DMs for adventures and other elements.

So what are your inspirations that you would, or already do, use to make Sci-Fi/Fantasy worlds and adventures, or would like the Paizo devs to take a look at as they work on Starfinder?
