[Starfinder] Dead Suns - Incident at Absalom Station [5/5 | 4]
« on: September 08, 2017, 07:53:26 AM »
Game system:
Starfinder

Game Style:
Science Fantasy. This is a module, so there is a decent mix of Roleplaying, Combat, Mystery, Exploration, and some Politics.

Players: 4-5
- @Arcrinsis - Halfling Ace Pilot, Class TBD
- @Acetwinelf - Ysoki Outlaw Mechanic
- @Ramis00 - Race, Theme, and Class TBD
- @TinWeasel - Half-orc Scholar, Envoy
- @Kris10

Player Skill Expectations:
Open to players of any experience level. Starfinder is a brand new system so I don't expect anyone to have much system knowledge.

Starting Character Information:
You will be starting at level 1. I am open to most character ideas, but please run them by me first.

Character Creation:
Characters will be created using the core classes and races in the Starfinder Core Rulebook (CRB). Standard Fantasy races are also allowed, and can be found at the back of the CRB. If you do not have access to the CRB, all of the relevant mechanical information can be found on the Starfinder SRD.

One houserule for character creation: your Theme gives you a +2 to the relevant stat instead of a +1.

Fair Warning: there are a lot of firearms in this setting, so Dexterity will be important!

If you need assistance with character creation, please PM me and I can assist!

Posting Expectations:
Every other day. I would love more frequent posts, but I understand that people get busy and there are much more important things in life. If you need to be absent for an extended period please let me know and we can work something out.

Restrictions:
You character must either currently be a member of the Starfinder Society or looking to join. Any alignment is allowed, but is subject to GM discretion. Alignments do not dictate your character's decisions. Your character's decisions can (and often do) shift your alignment.

Setting:
Standard Starfinder setting. Characters will begin play either on Absalom Station or heading there in a shuttle. If you need a quick rundown of the setting, please PM me and I can provide it!

Notes:
This is my first time running Starfinder and my first time running any kind of game on a Play-by-Post forum. Other than the character creation houserule, I will be trying to follow the rules as written as closely as possible. If there is a rules discrepancy, please bring it to my attention via PM and we will work it out. There will be some checks that I will make for your characters as for the sake of keeping the game moving. Initiative and basic knowledge checks are included on that list. Other checks may be added once we begin play (Saving Throws comes to mind).

Please use the Myth-Weaver website for storing character sheets. It makes the character sheet easy to access and update.

Please let me know if I missed something or you have any questions!

Glad to hear it, @Arcrinsis! Once you have a character concept, let me know!

I'm definitely feeling a halfling pilot, though I'm still a little undecided on class. Probably mechanic or envoy, operative looks cool though

Halfling pilot sounds good! Have someone who can make those pilot checks is super important. Anyone with a good Dex will make a good pilot, though Operatives and Envoys do get specific bonuses towards specific skills. Worth a thought!
