Title: [Starfinder] Dead Suns - Incident at Absalom Station [5/5 | 4]
Post by: DireKitten 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 would like to play, but I have never played before so I need some help learning the system and making a character. (I have gained access too a core role book thankfully)

Welcome aboard, @Acetwinelf! No problem with needing some help. Shoot me a PM and we can work on a character concept and the mechanics behind it!

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!

Ysoki mechanic outlaw seems cool to me but idk if that's good or not.

Rocket Raccoon is always viable in my heart

It's rocket ratcoon also I plan to be atleast not as much as a jerk as rocket is.

Ysoki is easily my favorite race! Seems like a Ysoki mechanic outlaw would be a lot of fun!

I am interested as well, though I've never played a Starfinder (or even a Pathfinder) campaign. I'm digging through the core rulebook to come up with a character concept.

Post by: DireKitten on September 08, 2017, 04:45:52 PM
No problem, @Ramis00! There are a lot of similarities to other D20 systems, if you have played those. The main differences that I have found so far is that the concept of a "healer" is less necessary, and even the mages are only a couple of feats away at being great at combat.

If you would like clarification on rules or want someone to bounce backstory ideas or character concepts off of, just shoot me a PM.

Hmmmmmm... science fiction. Why yes, I am interested.

Eh... looks like we might need somebody brainy. Let me absorb the online SRD and try to figure things out.

Looking like a Half-Orc envoy, a rough-around-the-edges Scholar. Forceful, confident, and extremely bright.

Welcome aboard, @TinWeasel! Our resident Ysoki Mechanic is very brainy, but his expertise is with computers and machines. An Envoy would make a wonderful addition to the party! Someone who is both clever and good with words is always welcome!

If you run into any issues with character creation, let me know. I love making characters, so it's no bother!

I think we're good to start making characters! I've been working with @Acetwinelf on his Mechanic already and we've made some solid progress.

I'll speak to Otter about getting a game thread started!

Congrats on meeting your minimum player requirements!

Here's the forum for this game (http://irate-pirate.org/dead-suns/)!

This LFP will be left up until it meets its maximum player limit, at which point it will be moved into your game forum.

Just a reminder to everyone out there! We still have one spot open in this game! We haven't started just yet, so anyone who wants to join would be starting at the beginning.

If you are still open to a fifth, I'm interested in jumping in. It would be my first time playing in a text format, just to put that out there.

I'm absolutely still open to a fifth. Welcome aboard, @Kris10 ! No problem, if you have any questions with the format, game, rules, or anything else feel free to ask away!

WooHoo!

I'm excited to be in!

By any chance, would you take a 6th player? Looking to try starfinder, I have access to the core rules. Been looking for a group locally, but alas, no dice. I played Pathfinder about 5 or so years ago, then switched to D&D4e and 5e.
