Tabletop Spotlight: Enough Pacts For An Entire World

2 Minute Read
Apr 3 2018

The Pact Worlds are the core setting of Starfinder. They are the beacons of civilized society, the place where explorers can rest up in between jaunts into the Drift. The place where adventure begins–but they are also home to dangers of their own.

Today on Tabletop Spotlight we sit down with the Pact Worlds supplement for Starfinder. It’s the first big setting book for the sci-fantasy system, chock full of information about the galaxy. Take a look.

The Pact Worlds are the populated parts of the Starfinder setting. They’re the homelands, the known territory–though that doesn’t make them any less full of danger or adventure waiting at every corner. They’re the bones of the Starfinder galaxy though, and this supplement breathes life into the setting.

The Core Book and Alien Archives have done a lot to flesh out the stuff your players might encounter, but this campaign guide provides you with what you need to really feel what the worlds are like.

In addition to the details on the setting, you’ll also get some new playable races, new enemies, and new archetypes. Everyone will find something in the book–player or GM. So check it out!
