There’s a beautiful, limited edition of the Starfinder Core Rules up for pre-order.

The release of Starfinder is only another month or so away–the science fantasy rpg is slated to debut at this year’s GenCon, ushering heroes into an Era of sword and planet adventure as they dart across the drift, in search of mystery and loot.

Get your game going in style with this limited edition hardcover core book. Clocking in at over 500 pages, this book is going to be huge. But then it’ll have to be–it’s a whole new game in one big book. Everything from classes, skills, and feats to gods and monsters and magic items will be within these pages.

And it’s the next evolution of the Pathfinder system. They’ve taken Pathfinder engine and turned it into something new. Like a bunch of black monoliths overtaking the surface of Jupiter, the game has been transfigured. Which I guess means we should pay close attention to the stellar communications we’ve been receiving. So take heed adventurers:

    So, what’s the difference between this, and the regular core rule book?

    • kafkadreams

      The “special” fake leather cover. That’s it. Faux real.

      • Drew_Da_Destroya

        Oh, that’s pretty lame. I was considering preordering this, but if the difference is literally just the cover, then screw it.

        • Nani Sore

          Kind of my reaction, would have loved some artwork or a detailed cloth map. I mean “something” at least.

          • Drew_Da_Destroya

            Yeah, it wouldn’t have taken much. Another few pages of artwork, an extra story or two maybe? But just a cover swap is weak as hell.
