  • Star-Log.EM: Loremaster (SFRPG) This installment of the Star Log.EM-series clocks in at 6 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1.5 pages of SRD, leaving us with 2.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   As always, we begin with a brief introduction and the meta-framework of accessing a database. The pdf represents another one of the classic concepts of d20-based gaming and converts it to SFRPG, this time around featuring the loremaster, one of the arguably most boring PrCs ever devised. I always liked the idea of the loremaster, but the implementation has never really touched me, so let’s see whether the Starfinder-version fares better!   Structurally, the loremaster is an archetype, and supplemental material-wise, we […]

  • Prestige Archetypes: Loremaster This installment of the Prestige Archetype-series clocks in at 8 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, ~1/2 a page of editorial, leaving us with 5 1/2 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   First question – what are prestige archetypes? Well, they are essentially a breakdown of a regular PrC into a full-blown 20-level spanning class – so no, these classes don’t necessarily mean that you’ll have a universal archetype (wouldn’t have worked in this context, I think), instead providing a retooled playing experience so you don’t have to work your way up to the PrC via classes you don’t want to play. So that’s definitely a pro-side. On the con-side, *personally*, I […]
