Space is the final frontier, and it’s time for your Starfinder characters to do more than run missions and investigate mysteries. It’s time to think BIG! Get out there into space and explore it, plant a flag, raise a colony, and stake your claim to an interplanetary empire! This week from Legendary Games we are every so excited to bring you Star Empires!

So what exactly is between these pages?

This amazing expansion for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game allows your heroes to stake their claim as princes of the universe and suzerains of the stars! Star Empires brings you extensive rules for founding colonies of your own and expanding them to form an empire, with a flexible and modular system that applies to territorial expansion on a single planet to interstellar empires that span multiple systems. Build colonies from simple modules to sprawling metropolises, fine-tuning the balance of law and corruption, industry and culture, prosperity and popularity! Develop your own governmental ethos, exploring and expanding your domain and issuing edicts to manage your empire’s economy and stability while keeping your citizens loyal and productive. You can play with a simple, abstract system or use any number of optional rules to develop trade, diplomacy, and more, and Star Empires also includes a modular system for mass combat in a sci-fi setting, allowing you to build armies to defend your colonies from invading enemies or raise a mighty crusade to crush the resistance of any system in your path. Your heroes have explored new worlds, uncovered interplanetary conspiracies, and boldly gone where no one has gone before, but in between your adventures and endless weeks cruising the spaceways now they can return home to their shining capital to build their own sci-fi society, from conquering techno-legions to peaceful utopia! Grab this incredible 100-page Starfinder supplement today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Download also includes PDF Army, Colony, and Empire sheets to print and use with your Star Empire!

And this is by no means the last entry in our ever-expanding offerings for Starfinder. Besides adventures, planets, magitech treasuries, and more already available, we also are pushing into the layout pipe Arcforge: Technology Expanded, Arcforge: Psiber Ascendancy, Star Intrigue, Star Battles, and SO MUCH MORE! Your space campaign is about to get a lot more Legendary!

You can pick up Star Empires RIGHT NOW exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore and starting this Friday from our friends at Paizo, DrivethruRPG, Amazon, and the Open Gaming Store!

Looks very interesting!

Question: when I buy Paizo PDFs at Paizo.com, and they get erratad/reprinted, I get an email telling me I can download the updated version. Does Legendary Games do a similar thing, and does it matter which channel (paizo.com, your own site etc.) I buy through?

This sounds great. Question: What is the smallest sized armies and the largest sized armies the mass combat rules support?

As far as I know, each of the various sales vendors where we sell our books will send you an update when an updated version of a file is uploaded. On some sites (I know on DrivethruRPG, not sure about others), it may require you to have your email settings on that site set to allow you to receive emails.

Army size is intentionally abstract, based on the CR of the creatures involved rather than leaning on a specific number of creatures, though you can build armies out of a single creature. As a general round number, an Army Size of 10 for typical soldiers is probably around 1000 troops or more.

Also available in print and print/PDF bundle at the Legendary Games webstore!


I would say that this sounds neat, Jason. I'll see if I can pick up a copy. Usually I can't because I spent my money on new clothes this month.

Jason, I can't thank LG enough for this product! I've wanted a decent colony-builder forever. I'm still reading through the document but immediately dived into the Colony section and built out Madelon's Landing from AtAT.

Am I correct in thinking that "Lots" (from the Colony Record Sheet) equals "Modules" (from the text)?

Am I correct in thinking that any colony infrastructure takes at least 1 module? Ones that take more than 1 are noted, but I didn't find the 1 infrastructure / 1 module explicitly stated.

In any case, thanks again for bringing this product to life! I hope like the Kingdom-building rules, additional supplements will add breadth and depth to the systems presented here.

Answering a few questions.

Army sizes are, like nation sizes, tied to relative scale. A Size 4 army could mean a group of 500 soldiers or a platoon of several million depending on the scale of the campaign.

All infrastructure requires at least one module As for Lots/Modules, that was the result of name change late in development that didn’t carry over to the character sheet.
