Paizo’s recent Starfinder livestream gave us all kinds of juicy new details about the upcoming sci-fi RPG.
In support of their recent charity bundle, Paizo hosted a live playtest and Q&A session of Starfinder, their upcoming science fantasy game due out in August of this year. While the humble bundle they were raising money for is now over, Starfinder got a lot of love. Here’s a real quick overview of what they talk about in the broadcast.
All in all, this was some exciting stuff. Seeing it in action, I’ll say it definitely still felt like they were playing Pathfinder (it doesn’t help that they spent a while fighting space goblins)–but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. We’ll have to wait and see what other details they release, but I will say I’m heartened by how much they want to capture the feeling of real good science fantasy, with ancient temples, space gods, and star emperors. After watching this, I’m definitely eager to create one of the Solarion (the paladin-esque space knights they talk about) and have laser swords and black holes and…and…look I’m really excited is what I’m trying to say.
Happy space adventuring in space!
*No word yet on whether or not there will be a W”e Be (Space) Goblins,” but, the whole thing practically writes itself. Not satisfied just adding “space” to everything? All you’d have to do is have the goblins set loose on a stolen space hulk-like starship. Paizo, I’m available.
