Class and archetype concepts


General Discussion


The thing I'm most excited about with starfinder is where it's gonna go from here. The core classes give you a lot of character types to play as but I was wondering what gaps in concepts you guys think need filled.

I posted in another thread about my desire for a geneticist class but I also hope to see class specific archetypes. Stuff like a mechanic whose AI is in a weapon or vehicle, a solarian themed after wormholes and space manipulation, or maybe even a mystic that focuses on summoning (hopefully from the alien archive in october)

Basically I'm mining you guys for homebrew ideas if Paizo doesn't deliver stuff I want. So bring on the inspiration.


I have written the Technomorph. It's a cybernetic shapeshifter that can modufy themselves to incredible degrees. Currently looking for playtesting and feedback to help balance.


Do you have a link or anything so I can take a look?

Technomorph 1st release draft


It's not bad at al for a first draft. I'd change some stuff like BAB (making living armory use level for BAB with melded weapons) and maybe dial down a few abilities (like making eat metal 1/day) but I like the theme and the mechanics. It's really strong as is but with some tweaking I'd totally allow it in my games. Good job.

If I get around to making a write up for the geneticist I'll post it on this thread.


BAB is already full, so living armoury doesn't need that. Others have stated the same concern about devour metal, so I've been considering limiting it further.


Sorry i didn't type that how I meant it. I meant give the class reduces BAB with living armory being the exception. Kinda like exocortex mechanics

By chance have you completed or have an updated version of this build?

It should be usable as is. I'm currently running a game with one player playing a technomorph. It may see some changes later as we find things that need changing.
