Engineering skill: Craft Tech Item
While the crafting item section on p235 states tech items in this chapter (equipment), is there any reason why crafting a trap cannot be included? Is it possible to expand the skill use to include this?
Organized Play-wise; so long as there is no lasting/carryover (ie: trap carrying over to next scenario), what would be the problem with not including crafting traps using all the same rules of ranks = level of trap to craft it?


I hope it's all right to an observation of my own to this post in order to keep the forum a bit tidier!

Page 31, as written for the theme Icon, reads:

"THEME KNOWLEDGE (1ST)
Choose a Profession skill. You are hooked deeply into
the culture of your iconic profession. When attempting a
Profession or Culture check to recall knowledge about other
icons of your profession or details about your profession’s
cultural aspects, increase the DC by 5. You gain a +1 bonus
to checks with your chosen Profession skill. Culture also
becomes a class skill for you, though if it is a class skill from
the class you take at 1st level, you instead gain a +1 bonus to
Culture checks. In addition, you gain an ability adjustment of
+1 to Charisma at character creation."

Every other theme (save Themeless) reduces the DC of related checks by 5, not increases it! Is this just a misprint or is it intended to be written this way - perhaps all Icons can be reasonably assumed to be so self-absorbed that they fail to notice the trends of their own profession?

There is a thread already up over on the Starfinder side of the house for possible errors.

It can be found here. The name of the thread is not best but it is what it is.

Oh awesome, thanks! I went looking through the FAQ yesterday and I'm not sure what I was doing wrong (it kept taking me to the Pathfinder FAQ, with maybe four or five Starfinder-related FAQs) (eta: found the one I was looking at!) but this one looks much more comprehensive :D
