Starfinder Core Rulebook$59.99

Strap in and blast off! The Starfinder Roleplaying Game puts you in the role of a bold science-fantasy explorer, investigating the mysteries of a weird and magical universe as part of a starship crew. Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of alien temples? Strap on rune-enhanced armor and a laser rifle to battle undead empires in fleets of bone ships, or defend colonists from a swarm of ravenous monsters? Maybe you’ll hack into the mainframe of a god-run corporation, or search the stars for clues to the secret history of the universe or brand new planets to explore. Whether you’re making first contact with new cultures on uncharted worlds or fighting to survive in the neon-lit back alleys of Absalom Station, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you’ll need each other.

This massive 528-page hardcover rulebook is the essential centerpiece of the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, with rules for character creation, magic, gear, and more—everything you need to play Starfinder as either a player or Game Master! The next great adventure in science-fantasy roleplaying takes off here, and the Starfinder Core Rulebook is your ticket to a lifetime of adventure amid the stars!

The Starfinder Core Rulebook includes:

  • All player and Game Master rules in a single volume.
  • Complete rules for science-fantasy races like logical androids, telepathic lashunta, ysoki ratfolk, and more—plus all of the classic fantasy races of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game!
  • 7 new science-fantasy classes, from the spellhacking technomancer to the starship mechanic with a remote-controlled robot. Will you be a heavily armored soldier, a charismatic envoy, a stealthy operative, an occult mystic, or the cosmically attuned solarian, who calls forth strange powers and shapes energy weapons from stars and black holes?
  • A detailed overview of Starfinder’s core setting, including the planets of the Pact Worlds, their gods, major factions and threats, and more.
  • Complete rules for starship combat, as well as for building and customizing your starship.

    Eh, I’m not convinced that using a class based system was the best idea for a sci-fi game. I bet it still has hit points too. Nothing more fun than shooting something a dozen or more times before it dies.

      This is literally Pathfinder in space.

        I’ve sort of wanted to try Pathfinder if I could find people. There are /so/ many rules though at this point (or it feels that way to someone who never played). I have no clue how class x differs from y and z subclass.

        It would sort of be nice to get in on the ground floor of something instead. That said, I don’t think this setting really pulls me in.

        And I sort of agree about the HP/gun thing. Not that I have a better way to deal with it, arm chair critic that I am.

    darn, only 7 classes? Hopefully there will be substitution levels or prestige classes to bulk it up
