I am currently reading through the first Alien archive. Leafing through the marooned one entry sends chills down my spine. A creature that can only really exist in a scifantasty setting and uniquely using both of those elements. But it doesn't stop with that one monster.

If we take a look at Nihili we find another most that has those same elements but in a lsightly different mesh. Instead of just an intelligent undead that died of effectively starvation a Nihili died of decompression and has gravity control.

I think this makes the settings default monsters pop and makes running a starfinder game different from simply running pathfinder in space.

Anyone else find monster that combine these elements or use them as a DM?

My character wouldn't exist without the marooned ones and nihili.

The assembly ooze holds a special place in my heart. If this were just fantasy, it would just be a magical ooze. If this were just scifi, one would wonder why they made it an ooze. It would only really truly exist as written in scifantasy.

I agree. I didn't think you could MAKE a gelatinous cube scarier than it already was (most pics forget that they're colorless, which is why they're so dangerous, you don't see them unless you're REALLY paying attention to what's in front of you), but somehow they managed it! You're not just dissolved painfully, but now it poops you out as an inanimate object!
