Starfinder: New Classes, New Ways to Explore

Two new classes, the Aeoncarnate and the Dragoon, make their way into Starfinder.

Those third-party publishers are really getting into the groove of producing cool content for Starfinder. Today the base game gets its first couple of custom classes, shown off in Little Red Goblin Games’ Dragoon and Rogue Genius Games’ Starfarer’s Codex. These both are some pretty solid new base classes, which, while not legal for league play, are still worth checking out if you’re looking for a little variety in your home game.

The Dragoon is very firmly rooted in the sci-fantasy part of Starfinder. I mean if you’re playing Pathfinder but in Space these guys fit right in with that style. Dragoons are the once-dead, now resurrected servants of dragons. Bound to a set of powerful armor, they are pretty beefy. These guys are martial through and through, if you want something to be soldiery, but with a unique spin on it, these guys are all about it.

The Aeoncarnate, on the other hand, are a hybrid caster class. If you have been thinking, how am I going to do some crazy gish shenanigans in this new game? Well here’s the answer. While they’re specifically “not a spellcaster” they have all kinds of abilities and spell-like powers that they can draw on to do everything from buffing their attacks to bending luck.

Dragoon Base Class & Lore $6.99

A New Class for a New Game!

“The Mewthian Disaster, a catastrophic event that killed millions, was perhaps the single greatest tragedy we have ever benefited from. They called it a disaster. I say it was a crucible that forged the weapons righteousness needed to survive.”
–Schola Dimus Rigan, “On the Mewthian Fallacy”

Short Version: You are a quasi-immortal soldier bound to a set of haunted armor by a dragon god.

The Mewthian Dragoons are the result of a tragic war on a graveyard planet reserved for the most ancient of space dragons. Those servants of the great wurms who died were resurrected to continue the fight when their dragon died. Now they are legion- organized into sacred orders and dispatched across the galaxy to combat evil wherever it rears its head! Will your character take the plunge and give up their mortal form to fight against the darkness?

Included:
-A Balanced Combatant Base Class: An extensively playtested base class designed to mathematically keep up with solarians and soldiers (tested at various levels with multiple builds and with multiple playtesters).
-Setting-Neutral Material: You can use “The Legend of the Mewthian Dragoons” lore or use one of the many other methods of integration into your campaign world!
-18 Orders: 11 “Mewthian” Order plus 7 “non-Mewthian” orders. This include the Errant Dragoon order, which is great for making your own order!

Starfarer’s Codex: The Aeoncarnate $3.95

 

Command the Energies of the Universe!
All the drives and limits of the universe are fuels and lenses for your power!

Like the mysterious outsiders known as aeons, and the masters of the ancient magic items called aeon stones, you are an embodiment of the conflicts and paradoxes within all planes of existence, and you use the tensions between them to enact your will on reality.

The Aeoncarnate is a new base class for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game that gathers and manipulates the potential energy of the universe to create supernatural effects. Not a spellcaster, the aeoncarnate uses dynamic potential to increase the destructive force of your attacks, manipulate gravity, and call on quantum energies to twist things to your benefit.

    Ya know I wish they would preface articles like this to let people know it is about 3rd party nonsense. I don’t care about 3rd party anything as none of it is society legal.

      These products are promoted by Pazio…and it’s called out that they are third party in the first sentence of the second paragraph.

        I am aware of that, however I was not aware of that until after I clicked the article. Which is what I am saying.

    Can someone explain to me the appeal of the myriad of supplements and add-ons for RPGs, third party or official?

    Someone way back linked to an Adventurer’s Alamanac (maybe that’s not the exact name) and I thought the idea was terrific. It wasn’t tied to any particular game system, but instead it was a generic generator of adventures, full of ideas and inspiration for the budding master, all bundled in a charming presentation. I can definitely see the appeal of that!

    But add-ons for specific games, with pre-digested campaing, with charts and stats and character classes? (“compatible with Starfinder”, wtf?) What’s the appeal of that? Do people really buy character classes for their favorite RPGs, instead of making up their own based on a book, comic or movie they liked?
