Oh Em Gee.
So many things I don’t know…
Are the pre-made maps going to be as claustrophobic as your typical Pathfinder maps?
What does that mean for long range weapons?
Will melee then shine?
But what if you bring a knife to a gun fight?
On the flip side, what if you bring a gun to a knife fight?
What if you bring a small arm to any fight?
What happens when you fight the level 3 Mandalorian boss who’s got a jetpack and no one in the party can reach them?
Spells don’t scale anymore and casters only have level 6 spell progression, do they suck?
Why bother casting explosive blast when we have grenades and heavy weapons available?
Now we’ve got two health pools to keep track of, how important is it to have dedicated healers?
Are medkits and the medicine skill enough?
NPCs supposedly have low AC and high attack, while PCs have the opposite, so does the math actually matter?
We’re going to hit each other anyway, right?
Is every plus sacred?
Does light armor suck?
What about shields?
Where’s the beef?
Can characters afford to always have the best equipment available?
Skills are super important in both combat and non-combat situations, what happens if you pick a dork class with low skill points in non-com situations?
What happens if we don’t have Computers or Engineering?
What happens if we don’t have a party “face” character?
What happens if we don’t have Sciences, Culture, Mysticism?
What happens if we don’t have a pilot, gunner, or engineer in ship combat?
How important are science officer, magic officer, and captain in ship combat?
I’m so confused.
The drow wannabe character has been shelved. There’s an (interesting?) writers exercise where you have to describe a character in one sentence without mentioning their physical appearance. I tried that with this character and failed.
After watching the Dead Suns trailer again…
The PCs are joining the Starfinder Society. Does this happen in the story or are we assumed to be Starfinders at the beginning? The adventure starts on Absalom Station right? I assume we have to come up with a reason for being there if we’re not natives, correct? Castrovel, Eox, the Cult of the Devourer, and the undead Corpse Fleet are all mentioned by name; are ties to said planets or factions in character background things to be embraced or avoided?
I’m so confused.
