I was running 1-09 Live! Exploration! Extreme! this last weekend.

When introducing Wazasha, and describing her. One of the players interupt's.
"So she is Zo!'s assistant?"
me: "Kinda"
"Is her name Vanna Wight?"

A botched role on creating a new identity in Commencement led to an ID that just said "Grandma McLovin". Amusingly, there's now a Granddaughter McLovin PC in our area.

I was playing my Solarian Icon Stavian IX, who is out to restore the Glory that is Taldor - even though we can't seem to find Taldor at the moment. Naturally I took profession (politician.) Everyone kept telling me that he was violating the rule on no evil characters :)

I will endeavor to be as spoiler-free in this description as I can... But I will still put it in spoilers, for sake of spoiler possibility. As there is no way to truly explain the moment, without risking some spoilers.

Moment of Hilarity:
I never thought I'd be able to say the following... however it is most definitely true.

My Ysoki Actor Icon was able to prevent the assassination of a powerful political figure...

By having an impromptu make-out session...

With an individual who had just recently, been the willing host of a sentient alien parasite...

Furthermore, this situation was 100% completely ad-libbed between myself and the other player... I am fairly certain the table/GM were as shocked and surprised by the events that unfolded, as the NPC we were trying to distract.

We revved our buggy engine, eager to crash through the chain link fence and begin our all-out offensive on the enemy headquarters. The buggy surged forward, and we fired wildly at the startled guard as we advanced. The buggy crashed into the chain link fence at top speed, and.....

The fence won.

A hellknight going old school faces a devil and goes after it on their own.

"You handle the mooks, the demon is my test! Someone make a record of this! "

This being starfinder, a PC against a boss alone... didn't go so well.

A few rounds later

Mystic cure poke. Hellknight wakes up to the ysoki mystic holding a datapad showing the fight.

"You failed. Wana try a retest? "

We track down a hostile informant, who has a security robot. My fellow vesk busts in the door and combat begins.

I go first. I walk through the door and ahead my speed, placing me next to the mark.

"Excuse me, I'm going to knock you out so we can question you," I say.

I make a non-lethal attack with my VESK PUNCH. A hit for 17 damage. The informant goes out cold before even hitting the emergency villain button on his comm unit. The poor robot gets dismantled shortly after.

Another anecdote:

We come across a boarded up house where the fugitives are holed up. Most of the party goes in the front door and starts trading fire with the two perpetrators.

I smash through one of the boarded windows, leaning in and saying, "HERE'S ZOGGY!" One of the perps is standing next to the window and attacks me, missing.

One of the other vesk double moves to flank the perp on the other side, opposite me. I make a full attack, through the window, and hit both times for 32 non-lethal damage. The GM asked me to describe it; basically I grabbed the perp, smashed his head against the wall twice, and hauled his unconscious body out the window.

From the perspective of the other perpetrator, it just looked like a huge, scaled arm reached through the window and snatched their co-conspirator. They surrender immediately thereafter, without releasing their ace-in-the-hole monster.

Basically, what I'm saying is that the SFS authors don't seem to account for fully optimized melee vesk working in teams.

Dreaming of the Future

Spoiler:
My Team gets the end fight, my Wrikrechee Technomancer gets in position to Jolting Surge. Manages to hit- and rolls 1's on my 4d6. What are the odds?
Second attempt, using my Energize Spell ability, for a free Jolting Surge- only to roll a Nat. 1.
Third attempt, Nat 20! :D 20+ damage later, enough to defeat the BBEG.
:D

Save the Renkrados

Spoiler:
Playing with a NPC Keskodai, the party in the chase to catch Vossi. With very little to do, Keskodai uses Command to make a couple of the riders on Vossi literally jump off the beastie.
Before the final fight, my Envoy comes up with a plan to bring most of the party in to the final encounter area. with a 30+ bluff, everyone believed me and allowed my to "secure" my teammates with the rest of the hostages.
I approach the big bad with the intent to "join his crew" as the Starfinders weren't lucrative enough. GM rolls Boss's Sense Motive and rolls a Nat 20, he begins laughing- "He sees through your lies. So, what's your bluff?" I rolled a Nat. 20 myself with a 6 on my Skill Expertise bonus. "Does his Sense Motive exceed my 35 bluff?"
GM sighs and takes back his statement, and offers character a drink.
"Good! Let's get this party start!" and i shoot one of his mooks and we roll into combat.

good times.

When I ran it. The characters heard pets and wanted to know where they were. For the rest of the scenario they were looking for the missing pets.

And the soldiers battle cry was, "FOR THE PETS!"

Last night my table found a Mk1 null-space chamber.

They immediately put it in the ysoki's cheek pouches and described putting the two suits of Vesk Overplate 2 as well as anything else into his new and improved "cheeck pouch".

The idea of a ysoki sword-swallowing massive armor and weapons with ease had all of us in stitches for the rest of the scenario.

So... I must ask. Does this run into the problems of Pathfinder?... namely, putting a portable hole (null-space chamber) into a bag of holding/Handy haversack? (ysoki cheek pouches)? Inquiring Cheek Pouches want to know.

I don't THINK that ysoki cheek-pouches are extradimensional in nature, but I admit that I've never reached my hand into one to find out.

But I expect that putting a null-space chamber in an extraplanar cheek pouch would result in a very messy explosion. *pushes up glasses*

In Live Exploration Extreme!:

Spoiler:
Right after the party dealt with the goblins in the first combat encounter, the party's technomancer was the one that spoke up the most about caring for the goblin after the studio audience voted they should keep it for the rest of the show. He then volunteered to go into The Booth, so that gave me a really good intro line.

Wazasha: "So, how long have you been an advocate for goblin rights?"

Technomancer: "Um, about...twenty minutes?"

Meanwhile, the goblin (Ekkie) had grabbed three sandwiches off the craft service table and was noisily and messily eating the pickles off them during the interview.

A certain scenario started an encounter at ridiculously long range, and the enemies were sniping at us. I was playing a brand new dwarf heavy weapon soldier. I measured off the range - 5 range increments out. I told the GM, "OK, I am full attacking with an azimuth artillery laser."
"The penalty is -"
"You heard me."
The funny part is one of the two shots hit, to the shock of the enemies who were barely within sight.

Playing Return to Sender-
Team is going through an enemy station, and come to a small room with an "inactive" ooze that consumes biological materials *coughLATRINEcough* and the Android Mechanic says "I'll poke it with my survival knife." after the 'field medic' envoy attempts to identify the purpose of the room.
Heh... the clueless mechanic gets gassed.

There was a lot of the GM asking what were we going to do, with the mechanic saying "I'll do it!" after much debate and no agreed upon plans and could not roll a save above 10.

The party comes across a refrigerated biological sample of some importance

My character has a habitat box, which is currently storing 20 credits of ice cream.

So impromptu ice cream party to make some room, put the sample in.

Other party member gets about halfway through the ice cream "Uhm justin. Did you have OTHER dangerous biological hazards in that box before the ice cream?"

"Hey, I washed it..."

Reminds me of what happened when I ran Skittershot for my group.

Computer: "Warning! Animals have been detected out of their cages!"
Engineer Skittermander: (Figures it out)
All other skittermanders: "Oh no! That computer needs help corralling those animals! We have to find them and get them under control for the computer!"

The Ysoki gym teacher is the closest thing the group has to a medic

"Hello captives, we have a possible deadly infection on board the ship. So your options are to have your suits transmit your health information, or I'm going to use a thermometer on the only data port I can reach... "

They transmitted the data.


My Android Operative has the ability to cast Supercharge weapon.
This makes his trick attack pistol shots amazingly deadly.

Or it would, if he could ever hit anyone when using it. He's consistently a great shot, with high attack and trick rolls. But the moment his pistol is charged with the spell, his attack roll tanks.

Other people can benefit wonderfully from his supercharging their weapons. But that hasn't stopped him trying on his own pistols, and constantly threatening to reassemble them as childrens mobile's of scrap parts if they miss another shot.

Dead Suns end of book 3...

Spoiler:
My team- a Vesk Soldier, gnome envoy/technomancer, android operative and my Skittermander Solarion/Soldier are investigating happenings on Eox. We're fighting a 50 ft tall elephantine thing... my skittermander is fully solar attuned, and has a crazy idea- the main body of this elephantine beastie with high above the ground and he reasons that his Supernova won't harm the spindly legs- so he has to get closer to the main body! He has jumpjets! UP UP AND FWOOOOOOSH! 5d6 for 20 damage... he made his relfex, so only 10.
So, after launching himself and loosing the Supernova, the elephantine beastie swats him out of the air...
The rest of the party was more disappointed that my skittermander didn't bounce. Well, his Golem-Plate Armor mk.III weighs a lot.
Then we learned, afterwards, that the operative's debilitating Trick Shot prevented him from using AoO's while flatfooted... so, rather than retconning the damage, we kept with.

An Azlanti Aeon guard makes a save against a player's hold person spell, and then breaks into song, because I am a very bad person.

♫ You can't touch this
You can't touch this
You can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh)
You can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh)

My-my-my-my majestic genes help me fuel Azlanti schemes
Thank you Azlanti lords for the best will save you can afford
That’s good when you know you’re on top
Yeah, the imperial forces you cannot stop
And we’re known as such
And this is a regime u can’t touch

I told you vesk boy u can't touch this
Yeah that's how we're livin' and you know u can't touch this
Look in my eyes, bug, u can't touch this
You know let me bust the azlanti tech u can't touch this

Fresh conquest and plants
Invaders coming like that now... you wanna dance
So move Starfinder fleet
Ooh baby will you ever catch this beat
We’ll be rollin’ over you in a little bit
Our reinforcements will surely knock you flat
Cold on your mission, so pull on back
You know you’ve taken on to much
And this is an empire that u can’t touch

Yo I told you u can't touch this
Why you standing there vesk u can't touch this
We enslaved 17 races sucker u can't touch this
They now march to Azlanti rhythm
Making 'em sweat with work we’re giving 'em
Now they know when you talk about the Hammer
You talk about a regime that's hyped and tight
The slaves are sweatin' but that’s all right
They gotta learn what it's gonna take
And now you gave us burn
On grounds our Izepthar worked hard
Oh you might as well quit
That's word because you know

You can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh-oh-oh)
You can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh-oh-oh)
Break it down
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh)

While playing "The first Mandate'

I mentioned to Zo! that he might think about getting the Junk races on his network. He told me that the junk race's broadcast rights are owned by another network. I then mentioned how there is a small party of Starfinders that want to compete, and has he thought about sponsoring them to get his show mentioned on another network?

GM stared at me for a minute, then didn't even have me roll for success. Instead Zo! took off, followed by his assistant, as he started calling people on 2 phones at once. Achievement unlocked!


So several times I've had to roll Survival, missing it by such a small amount that if I had the class bonus I would have made the rolls. When my character recently leveled I gave my character Skill Synergy, so she could have Survival as a class skill.

I just realized that, being a soldier, she had Survival as a class skill all along.

In AP
Party encounters security droid by way of rescued Space Goblin.
Here is what happened:
Goblin starts cussing and runs to the Android Mystic (he has been getting piggy back rides through the asteroid)
Mystic uses fire extinguisher to propel themselves back 25 fee to the entrance and lay down cover at the same time.
Ysoki soldier books from other side of the hall and lobs a sticky grenade.
Vesk Mechanic hears the commotion and also runs for the door.
Lashunta Operative tries to access the computer.

Next round the rest of the party is halfway back to the ship and the Lashunta, hearing the robot, dives under the desk.

Long story: Lashunta waits a full minute to determine patrol pattern and find out he has 3 rounds to try to access the computer before it gets back. The entire party is gone. After 3 minutes, the robot finally sees him hiding under the desk and fires. Operative then trick attacks, succeeds, then books it past the robot to get stunned. Meanwhile the party sends the Mystic and the Goblin back to recover his corpse.
Operative then spends last remaining Resolve Point, stands and then books it out into the darkness.

When asked why, Operative explained that he couldn't see to run back to the ship, so might as well try to access the computer before he dies...

So me and another player are both playing ysoki. In the scenario where you go to the crow city. We’re down in the warehouse and they kill the lights. Both of start going on and on, in character about not being able to see cause it’s so dark. “Oh no what are we going to do it’s sooo dark I can’t see a thing.” Even after we successfully shoot things we keep going on and on. “I think I hit someone was that you?” Basically hoping the drow thugs were too dumb to know ysoki have darkvision....
