A friend of mine is under NDA, he's specifically looked at the rulebooks, and has told me there's no "mecha" type deals in the core book, but there is crap like power armor and terminator armor, ala Warhammer 40k.

the devs have gone on record that we'll be getting "gundams" sometime in the future.

>>53937624
Well, maybe it's because those 'bestiary entries' are literally just quick-play designs using the incredibly shitty fast monster creation rules from Pathfinder with only small nods to Starfinder's mechanical changes?

First contact is not a bestiary. Alien Archive will be, once we get access to it, but First Contact is utterly ignorable and terribly edited.

Frankly I just hope we get to actually use them. It always seems like no one ever plays to max level because it's implied you've become a demi god at that point. From the looks of it the tone of the levels have been dialed down so while you may (or may not) become a semi divine being you could just be a super badass instead.

But really i want to see what archetypes they have and how well they will mesh with the themes because there are already a few character I want to make just based on the class/themes alone.

I don't know if that's the tone I got from the stuff I've read and watched. It saeems more like they're doing away with some of the cheesy bullshit casters can do in pathfinder, and bringing warrior types up to par.

I did the math a little bit ago, and soldiers with a decent gun at level 10 can do more damage than a moderately well optimized blaster sorcerer, and with more staying power both in terms of offense and defense.

The equipment rules alone bring some parity for warrior types. At least, it seems like they can rival or outshine anything a dedicated evocationfag could do in Pathfinder. Plus actual utility stuff, like the Operative's cloaking field.

>> No.53937817

>>53937773
Yes, demons, devils, angels, and whatever are still around. It's literally just the Pathfinder universe - which runs on a modified Great Wheel cosmology - but in the future, so magic, demons, and shit are all still around.

In fact, interstellar travel is done through exploiting the space between planes to get from one place to another. the trick is that you might drag some of said plane into the Drift with you, and then you'll be dealing with some seriously pissed Angels.

And, just to confirm, all pathfinder races will be able to be converted for Starfinder.

Technically speaking, it's already possible in Pathfinder, just incredibly shitty.

It's paizo - they believe they can balance "mechanically good" versus "thematically awesome".

Come on. That's obviously not feasible. RPG design mandates designing your challenges (in this case, benchmark monsters you'll base stuff off of) before your characters. Even if it didn't- or Paizo is so awful they screwed up something that basic- they've done playtesting and run demo games, this is known. Paizo has finalized stat blocks for monsters, it's not debatable.

Do you think they then went back and made a shitty hack for PFU monster generation to build monsters for First Contact specifically to fuck with you? Do you think that's actually more likely than this just being how monsters work in Starfinder? Face it, the future is CR 4, has 52 HP, 16 EAC, and 18 KAC.

I don't mind the standardized stat values, its easier to balance classes around. What I am afraid of is their abilities being boring and every fight still being 'you/the monster moves 5 feet and Full Attacks' if neither have spell equivalents.

no, they're literally wrong for statblocks. Check the space goblin's AC values - they don't take into account the Dexterity ratings. One guy's sniper rifle deals 1d810+5 damage. The Fast Monster Creation rules are the only explanation for them getting so much shit wrong.

Soldier with the Priest Theme, most likely. you'll even be able to put the Holy Fusion (fusions = enchantments) onto shit like plasma cannons. they specifically said that the holy fusion is better than holy weapons in Pathfinder too - makes the weapon count as Good for DR, yes, but it'll also ignore the energy resistances of Evil undead, outsiders, and dragons.

Agreed. Unfortunately, if Starfinder becomes the forerunner for that, we're likely going to be stuck playing it whether it's good or not since it'll be the most popular of the bunch.

that said, there is some evidence that the current class of nerds wants Starfinder; it's a pretty small cross-section of the gaming community, but the demand for tickets to paizocon to play starfinder was a bout triple the normal ticket requests they get for the con.

Nil. From what we've seen and been told, casters are going to be restricted to 1-6 casters with side abilities (like Bard, or Hunter) while, after doing some math, soldiers will be capable of dishing out more damage than dedicated blaster sorcerers. The utility of non-mages is yet to be seen, but with tech being ubiquitous, it's more more likely to have a lot of utility as a non-mage.

that's actually a concern I can alleviate. Even if your GM is super stingy, as long as you have the cash for it, you can craft basically anything so long as you have Engineering, Life Science, and Computers as invested skills (or whatever the Spellcraft skill is called now for enchanting).

And even then, they said they want you to be able to keep a good gun and upgrade it over time if that's what you want to go for. customize the blaster your pa gave you.

On top of that, the game has some basic assumptions, such as the fact that all armor is enviro-suit capable, and everybody is running around with high tech weaponry, enemies like goblins included.

Here's a Summary for the Weapon Stuff

Weapons can end up dealing at least 7d8 base damage before any modifiers or enchantments
Baked in damage boost tied to character level.

Lack of iteratives (which is alright with me given the above two points) makes chasing accuracy bonuses far less important

Finesse weapons are now "operative weapons" and the feat tax on them is gone.

Weapon enchantments, now called fusions, can be swapped between weapons freely.

The holy fusion overcomes energy resistance of some evil things

Weapon focus now applies broadly

Weapon levels sound really cool

Crits double all damage, and they are very emphatic on the "all" part

Soldiers are the only ones with inherent access to the full-Level-to-Damage boost weapons

Crits don't need confirmations anymore, but if you only hit on a nat 20 you don't get a crit

Inappropriately sized weapons inflict a -4 penalty to attack but don't change damage

Melee weapon handedness doesn't change the Strength bonus

Many weapons have crit riding effect, most common of which are burn, corrode, knockdown, deafen, staggered, bleed, and wound. There are a few others

Armor bonuses scale with equipment level, as does how long you can survive in a vacuum with that armor

There's a 12d10 slashing damage sword with 6d6 bleed on a crit and a 14d10 bludgeoning and fire hammer with knockdown on a crit as level 20 melee weapons

General assumption is that you can buy anything with an equipment level equaling Character Level +2

>> No.53941512

>>53941491
So what does this all mean?

Basically, I want you to think nu-XCOM over systems like Mass Effect or Rogue Trader. There's going to be a lot of status effects and ways to put them in, so rushing in with powerful Melee weapons is NOT a good idea. Much like in Gears of War, shooting someone from behind the safety of a chest high wall is usually the better option.

>> No.53941537

>>53941512
Still, having a backup melee weapon seems like a good idea, since if some kind of alien gribbly gets all up in your face, you want to be able to shank it and move on.

Cover also seems like it's going to play a greater role than it did in Pathfinder, so the XCOM comparison is even more apt.

I believe there will be archetypes that allow casters to go higher than sixth level casting but then again there are archetypes that will allow anyone to be a caster essentially.

Not only that, there is no divine/psionic/arcane split mechanically so magic can be fluffed in whatever manner you want so if your soldier took your Phrenic Adept (I think that's what it was called?) you could say it's divine power and be the paladin (without the smite) or be a super cool and edgy spell sword/gun type of dude.

Travelling to "Near" Solar Systems (aka those with a lot of beacons adjacent) takes 3d6 days and has a 10% chance of shit hitting the fan.
Travelling to "Vast" Solar Systems (aka those without many adjacent beacons) takes 5d6 days and has a 25% to 50% chance of shit hitting the fan.

Travelling from anywhere in the galaxy to Absalom station takes 1d6 days and has 0% chance of problems.

More advanced drift engines reduce the travel time significantly.

As for barbarians? I mean I don't know what would make for Rage powers but I've never been a fan of barbarians getting their rage from nature powers or some shit.

Themes and archetypes are two different things.

I'm really hoping for proper Warforged and Dragonborn for Starfinder. Pathfinder never really got them, and I always hated it.

It's funny that I originally hated the Dragonborn, but now I love the idea of cast-based dragon civilizations with dragons at the top, a dragonborn warrior caste, and a kobold population.

Would work crazy good in Starfinder.

I'm imagining a mash-up between Classical Sparta and the Indo-Aryan High Culture. In space.

And the Warforged origin story works absolutely perfectly in Starfinder. A species of AI:s modeled after their creators, created for a war that's long over, endowed with sentience, trying to find their place - often by affixing Megaman-like utility-rifles to their arms, or mount shoulder-cannons, obviously.

So the archetype "themes" are basically just a secondary class that's added to the main class?

That could work, I guess, if so. Just add a Barbarian Class to the Fighter Class, a kind of built-in gestalt created from two different pools, a "class" and a "theme"?

Could work, could work. Could still end up feeling wrong, I think, especially when we start talking about different kinds of barbarians - urban barbarian, nature-based barbarian, etc.

And barbarian is obviously just used as an example here.

I found a source of good info on how it works in Starfinder:

http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2017/06/starfinder-all-about-archetypes-and-themes.html

Basically, you pick a core Class.

Then you must pick a Specialization, which is a lot like archetypes from Pathfinder, and are specific to each class. You need to take a Specialization, because they determine aspects of your core Class.

Then you pick an Archetype if you want to. Archetypes are generalized and applicable to all classes, by forcing you to give up base features of the core Class at levels 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, and 18 (or less, but those are the eligible levels).

Then you must pick a Theme. Themes are a bit like Traits and Backgrounds in Pathfinder, but they're mandatory and also add class features to level 1, 6, 12, and 18, and give you an attribute bonus.

Hopefully, Starfinder will also have Traits, just like Pathfinder does.

I'm going to miss class-specific archetypes, and I think that they're really tying themselves down to a very rigid system here, rather than the archetypes of of Pathfinder, but overall, I think it all sounds pretty solid.

For example, I can see a Soldier having a Specialization as a Barbarian, and then you can take an Archetype to be more like a "ranger"- or "druid"-type character, or you could take an Archetype that makes you more of a "rogue"-ish urbanite brawler. And then you add a theme to establish your day-job - are you a bounty hunter, a mercenary, or an outlaw? Or are you just a really, really, really angry ace pilot?

Consider me officially re-psyched.

That's pretty sad, but it might just be temporary. It's pretty obvious that Paizo has made the system like this to be able to expand upon it in order to sell more books and not feel like they're running on empty like Pathfinder (where they finally started to just churn out new base classes because fuck the police).

The modular approach makes a lot of sense, though, because they get to essentially create new classes without actually having to churn out new base classes, and content can always be expanded upon, without anyone really being completely neglected due to class inflation (there can only be so many archetypes in a supplement, after all).

Paizo gets an excuse to churn out massive amounts of content and just keep it going, and we get a good system to play around with to make interesting characters. I can't wait to make a Ratling Rage-Rogue that jumps out of the shadows and hatefucks someone to death.

I had an idea for a dragon based kingdom that was feudal and sort Bretannion/Arthurian in nature.

The actual dragons sit at the top of the rung as gods.

I believe at this moment it's important to describe the definition of a Mary Sue.

A Mary Sue is not simply a character inserted into an established setting, and it's not simply a heterochromatic purple-haired gold-ticket lesbian. A Mary Sue is a character who, for one reason or another, everyone they meet loves or at the very least admires them, and the only people who do not are either social pariahs or the villain. The classic Mary Sue is not a master-of-all abilities, but rather shows unnatural skill in one or two areas (typically something important yet clearly supportive, like healing or mechanics) and needs their legion of fans and friends to carry them the rest of the way. The classic Mary Sue was, after all, a Star Trek character named Mary Sue who worked in medical.

>>53945463
I just finished reading her story and so probably have the freshest perspective of anyone here.

Nothing in it suggests Mary Suedom in the slightest. Mary Sues need two critical things (beyond being fanfiction):

1) The universe has to seem to bend over backwards in order to accommodate them and ensure that they always succeed
2) Everyone has to instantly love them.

Navasi fails to meet either requirement. Her backstory has plenty of failures to go along with her successes, and her backstory features plenty of people who have all sorts of feelings about her.

Tastes like perspective and restraint.

From another angle:
1) What, in your opinion, makes a character a Mary Sue? Because it does not seem to match up to any real-world definition used anywhere outside of 4chan, and not even all of 4chan at that.
2) How is Navasi a Mary Sue under that definition?

She's not my waifu. This is actually the first Paizo-related thread I've been in in months. I normally hang out in Star Trek or Star Wars or verses threads, telling people why Heartless beat Tyrannids or Carmen Sandiego beats the Ruinous Powers.

>>53945733
This is a horrible list as I have to find your requirements buried in it rather than having you actually spell them out clearly and concisely, which I think is deliberate on your part becuase if you did you'd have to admit that Navasi isn't a Sue. Nevertheless, I'll give it the old college try based on what I can glean from your post.

>Name
Navasi is simple enough and not strange by the standards of the setting. Not Mary Sue.

>Age
Navasi's backstory establishes her as older than 18 (she left her parent's home at the eve of her 18th birthday then spent years as a raider), though it's not concrete on how much older. Probably not Mary Sue, though, as she looks like someone in her mid- to late-20s.

>Hair
Purple. And this thing you posted establishes that merely having a weird hair color doesn't make you Mary Sue if it's normal for the setting, which it is in Starfinder or, Hell, Earth (since it's not natural, just dye, unlike in your post where Ami Machida has naturally green hair). So not a Sue.

>Eyes
Wears a blue contact lens. Hardly Mary Sue-ish. A Sue would have natural two-colored eyes.

>Species
Just human. Not Sue.

>Mother & Father
Ordinary (if wealthy) people, not superbeings or preexisting characters. Not Sue.

>Profession
Space pirate, which is a normal thing in the setting. Not Sue.

>Secret Powers
None. Not Sue.

>Companions
Other space pirates, which makes sense. Not sue.

>Weaknesses
Made a number of poor life choices (namely she could probably do more good as a rich woman in Absalom than as a space pirate). So definitely has them, and therefore definitely not a Sue.

She even explicitly dates the avatar of Weydan, one of the major deities.
From her backstory:
>Yet when she considered mimicking the original Navasi's tattoos, she was shocked to learn that they were symbols of Weydan, the god of discovery and equality, famous for taking mortal form. Though her partner had never spoken of religion, Navasi took it as a sign, and even holds out some hope that perhaps her companion might have been more than she seemed...
From the deity's description:
>The deity called Weydan regularly breaks off shards of his divine self and crafts them into avatars—mortal versions of himself in every gender, shape, and species—that can walk unseen among the countless cultures of the Material Plane, free from the responsibilities of godhood and able to experience those aspects of existence denied to omniscient deities. In this way he also teaches the fundamental equality of all creatures—even gods—and encourages his congregation to treat all people well, for even the most grotesque sinner or alien monstrosity might be a secret messiah.

What it actually says is that it could go either way. It's deliberately vague, and even if it weren't, it's still not in and of itself grounds for Suedom - plenty of characters get touched by a higher power without realizing it. Bethany Sloane in "Dogma" hangs out with the 13th Apostle, the Metatron, a former Angel who quit to become a Hollywood writer, two prophets, and is the great-whatever-grandniece of Jesus Christ, but she's not a Sue.

Also, what's this "plausible deniability" thing? Who's the one who thinks they're in a court of law? Because typing out a line like that doesn't make it sound like me.

That wasn't left in for plausible deniability. It was left open for the purpose of future writers or DMs who might use her character to go either direction as the needs of the story require.

Not that I ever really believed it in the first place, but your inability to understand deliberate vagueness and open plot hooks leaves me wondering if YOU'RE the autist, not me.
