Advice


I've decided to "down-port" my goblin healer from Starfinder into PF 2e. One of her core beliefs is that the dead should stay dead, which is straight-laced, lawful good on its face. She helps anyone in need of medical assistance regardless of faction, ect. as well, which shifts her towards neutral good/lawful neutral. Are those beliefs opposed enough to, clearly, make her NG/LN, or is she still LG?


You basically just described a good-aligned cleric of Pharasma.

For alignment specifically and not tied to deity, LG vs NG is likely going to be a matter of how you approach the world. Are you more rigid and by-the-book? LG. Are you more interested in helping those in need as a primary motivator? NG.

Disclaimer: Alignment is kind of nonsense, so make of it what you will and try to have fun.


Thanks. It's the latter, so she's NG.

Do a snow goblin's skin and fur match in color, or is their fur true blue (0 0 255) canonically? The CRB just notes their fur as "blue."

As with all things in nature, there's probably variation. Humans aren't all SINGLE_PERFECT_SKIN_TONE™, so why would Snow Goblins be that?


Sensible.

I'm between the field medic and herbalist backgrounds. Will the field medic option be expert in medicine because she's already trained in it through following Pharasma?


Nope. At character creation, if two things give you training in a skill, you just pick a different skill. The only time you would gain expert is if something explicitly says you do.


Okay.

Would society or survival fit a(n) herbalist with 10 intelligence better? I like the idea of a goblin able to mingle a bit but, at the same time, want to go all in with the heals while not knowing if I'll use a free boost for intelligence.


Survival would fit thematically, and would be powerful with your Wisdom focus.

That said, Society is a really good skill that covers a lot of different situations.


Also important to note the distinction between mingling on a personal level (Diplomacy) and understanding mingling on a social level (Society).


I feel a bit dumb for asking that because I can get both as additionals from being a cleric.

No worries! We all are new to PF2. Takes time to get to know the feel for things.


Is teal skin out of the realm of possibility for snow gobs, whose skin's canonically defined to be "between sky blue and navy [blue]" in color?


Maybe? I don't think it really matters, though. If you really need some sort of justification, just say that you have a relative a couple steps removed who was a greenskin goblin or something.


Posting this here because it's related to the character in question. But, it may be better-placed in the Society forum for obvious reasons.

I think the answer to this question's "no,"but I'll ask anyways. This character's altered from a Society character I played at Ohayocon. And, I'd like her have access to weapons from a different culture through something of a cultural exchange program. Is this allowed in Society? If so, it's most likely to be elf weapons because I couldn't find any heritage other than arctic elf that, explicitly, lives near snow goblins.
