Xenometric Android and Alien Archive 3


Rules Questions


Sorry if this has been answered before, but a search of the forums yielded no results.

I am asking, are any of the races in Alien Archive 3 also supposed to be/going to be included in the racial options for the Xenometric Android, and if so, which ones and what abilities? Curiouos because there are a few nice ones in there and some I think would make for a cool idea or two (The Spathinae come to mind right off the bat)..

Side question not even remotely related to the above, mainly because I am curious as can be...

Armor Adjusted for Spathinae would work how? Not really relevant I know, but I am just really wanting to know. I mean, they are a swarm of little insects that can literally change form (Which is not mentioned as being possible or impossible when wearing armor, though logically it should be impossible) and even compress (Which the adjustment supposedly allows, but curious how?).

Anyways, if I could please see an answer about the actual question on Alien Archive 3 and Xenometric Android, that would be much appreciated, thank you in advance!

There is not any kind of announced upcoming official tule stating "these races will be added under xenometeic android."

To use xenometeic variants modeled after other races, you'll need to do a little house ruling and select the traits that seem most appropriate. It's a lot like using non-core races with Borai.

I was afraid of this. The group I am with is just now about to try a Starfinder run and I was just looking in case I needed to get with my GM/DM. This is the first time for all of them but myself (though my experience with it was very short and only when the core rule book came out) so I am unsure if he will do any homebrew or not, although he is very experienced with Pathfinder and allows a lof of 3rd party if they are fairly balanced.

Ahhh well, can't hurt to have asked lol.. Thanks again HammerJack for the answer

Regarding the armour for the Spathinae, I imagine when it is customised each component gets part of the armour.
