Outside of the Pathfinder name, I'm not sure yet what the appeal is vs. Shadowrun or Star Wars... It could be fun, though.

Depends on how closely it hews to Spelljammer's ethos.

I imagine it would have a very different feel than Shadowrun at least, as for Star Wars, I guess if you just didn't like any of the other available systems. I do wonder how easy it would be to port D20 Star Wars into it.

I agree that new minis for this would be good as well.

I think it's actually supposed to be Pathfinder in space in the future. not just Pathfinder in space like Spelljammer. None the less Spelljammer was what immediately came to mind when I saw this.

I wasn't a huge fan of Spelljammer as a setting myself, I thought it was... maybe a little too ridiculous? I probably read too much hard sci-fi for it to really appeal. I know there were some people who really loved it.

 

Starfinder is looking to be more hard science fiction though. Significantly less magic (although I think there may be some, still). Deities are still around and there's an ascended AI deity. World of Golarion has vanished somewhere and nobody can remember where. The Pathfinder Society is trying to figure out what happened to everyone's memories.

 

I think humans are the only core race in Pathfinder that will be a core race in Starfinder, so probably no dwarves, elves, gnomes, halflings, etc.

Since as its release is in summer 2017, we'll have plenty of time to see how it develops.

 

And it sure doesn't give the same vibe as Spelljammer which really was high fantasy in space, no science there.

There is always White Star rpg, which I really need to download, someday........

 

I'm not sure I want to dip into Starfinder. I like Pathfinder but lately I feel like there is just too much going on with it. Granted yes, the rules are optional but I do like to keep a open mind when it comes to all the rules & such.

 

Curious if they'll go Spelljammer or Star Frontier route with the rules & setting. I've only seen the blog posts on P.com & even then I didn't really read it all that close. I will say I'm sure I wanna add anther monthly Adventure Path to my current one (bad enough when they force 2 of them on you in a month's shipment..... <_< ).

 

Hopefully it'll be a success for them thou. Always nice to have options.

I was thinking more like "Shadowrun in spaaaaace"

Don't count on no elves. If I recall elves are aliens on Golarion. Their elf gates connect to their world if I recall as well as other places on golarion. So we might discover elf gates on other worlds. No clue yet. I just seem to recall that being mentioned.

 

Does make me wonder if they once had an intergalactic empire now though

I'm only repeating what I've heard from Paizocon. You're right, though, it's a little surprising. They might be trying to draw a clear line between Pathfinder and Starfinder, which seems to be why they had Golarion disappear.

 

Anyway, you're right, elves are aliens! They're from Castrovel, i.e. Golarion Venus. There are a series of aiudara (elf gates) that link up Golarion and Castrovel.

 

There's even a trait you can take to officially be an alien in regular old Pathfinder.

Just recalled those furry humanoids from Reign of Winter AP. Curious if those will be a option for races. Human as the only core would be kinda blehh being in Outer space. Heck just look at all the aliens you encounter in Trek or Wars!!

      He was a leftover from a group of pathfinder mini's I primed but forgot to finish from my last posting.

      This is the Bones version of the iconic character, painted in a rather quick and dirty fashion. There was a lot of metal and chain mail, which I did not spend time on, and a few details which I picked out.  In retrospect I could have brightened up the armor some, but since she's likely to go on the table as a generic fighter I didn't feel the need to make her special.

      Hello again, this one is Darkblade, a Wizkids Pathfinder Deep Cuts 72596, Human Male Fighter. Darkblade is also a the character of one of the players of our D&D group. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.

      How long has it been since I started a show off thread???? Too long. I have missed everyone and hope to get back to at least a semi regular amount of posts. Figured I’d start with a Reaper mini. For the forum peeps that attended ReaperCon 2019 you may have seen my version of Derek’s beautiful sculpt O-Sayumi or affectionately named Akiko. I had a great time painting this lovely lady. Since I didn’t complete her until Thursday night of the con I didn’t get any photos until last week. Two years to take pics and post them up, not bad huh? 
       
      I missed ReaperCon and all of you. I have been enjoying seeing the pics shared here. So here is to a year of painting more minis and bringing them to Texas in 2022. 
       
      Now without further ado, Akiko.

      Merisiel, Iconic Rogue.  The original artwork is very good but this is one of the early Bones models that did not translate well to the medium.   She flops over, the weapons did not come out well, and much of her detail is guesswork.  I even had to sculpt her a nose because she didn't come with one.  I tried to follow the artwork more or less, but it wasn't worth the effort to spend too much time on her.
