  • Star Log.EM: Polymorphic Options (SFRPG) This Star Log.EM-installment clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   All right, after a brief bit of context of gene reconstruction and body modification in the Xa-Osoro system, we begin with a new soldier fighting style, the shifter. These fellows have natural shapeshifting powers that help them in combat – at 1st level, we have shifter’s strikes, which lets them execute natural attacks with any body part (and that is better than many people give credit for if you’re creative!) and they don’t count as archaic. Better yet, you get to choose whether […]

  • Star Log.EM: Mephians (SFRPG) This installment of the Star Log.EM-series clocks in at 9 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Mephians in the Xa-Osoro system are natives of Terros, a relaxed and community-driven species that has endured their fair share of prejudice, courtesy of their looks and ability to exude a type of musk akin to the skunks they resemble. And yes, get out all your Pepe Le Pew jokes now. 🙂 (As aside, a mephian Casanova with Gambit-esque ambitions was pretty much immediately a compelling character-concept I came up with…)   The pdf presents a mephian subtype graft, but fails […]

There is a small glitch, an “all” missing here, but other than this cosmetic hiccup, I couldn’t have […]

This is relevant, because the mummy rot […]

The pdf presents 8 different ones that may be taken at 2nd level. The first one is already pretty interesting in its execution – it halves the time required to take 20, and allows you to execute skill checks that require 2+ rounds in half the time. […]

After we receive a brief piece of fluff that contextualizes the Kasatha within the Xa-Osoro system, we begin this supplement with the kasatha paragon archetype – obviously, this one requires that you’re a kasatha. At 2nd level, the alternate class feature nets you a feat that requires being a kasatha or having “Kasatha” in its name. This may be taken as a replacement class feature at 4th, 6th, 12th and 18th level as well.   The pdf then proceeds to provide […]

Additionally, they designate a ward, which may be a creature, location or object. The kami may merge with the ward and share senses as a standard action, and emerge just the same way. Nice: This takes mounting wards into account regarding size category implications. While within 120 feet of the ward, the […]

This archetype nets the best-gob Skill Focus with Engineering at 2nd level as an alternate class feature. At 11th level and every 4 levels thereafter, the insight bonus increases by 1. Additionally, at 4th, 6th, 12th and 19th level, you may take […]

All creatures of this size are even larger than Colossal critters, and receive the Massive extraordinary ability. Creatures with this ability ignore difficult terrain and environment-based movement-impairing effects of up to 1/4th of a height or depth of the creature’s space. These creatures may not be flanked by critters that are Large or smaller, and receive +2 to AC against attacks from such targets. They also only take half damage from effects from such […]

Nice! The race may, at first glance, be mistaken for human, though their skin pigmentation does differ, and their increased hair growth means they have mighty manes – but this resemblance with humans that are into hair metal is only skin deep: The zephyrian physiology allows them to absorb radiation from sunlight to defy gravity, and a nine-chambered stomach allows them […]

The Great old Ones get a stellar alignment variant unique to the respective Great Old One, and they have a 300 ft.-aura of unique effects. Oh, and they are genuinely immortal.

These would be:   -Adaptive Guard: Nets you an untyped +2 bonus to Reflex saves, and provides the option to choose a nearby target, increasing bonuses for fighting defensively and Reflex saves originating from that foe at the expense of being slightly more susceptible against assaults from others. Nice!   -Barreling Momentum: Requires Step Up and Improved Combat Maneuver (bull rush), and lets you Step Up to […]

There are 4 new level 5 weapon fusions included: Boomerang does what it says on the tin, may only be applied to thrown weapons, and makes a thrown weapon return to you your hand one round after it is thrown; this is akin to returning, save that you get a second attack roll  at the original value on a missed one. Conductive makes a weapon’s electric energy charge an opponent’s armor. A […]

Borai get +2 Con and Cha, -2 Wis, are Medium and have a 30 ft. base speed, unless specified otherwise. They have Darkvision 60 ft., and for effects that target creatures by type, they count as both humanoids and undead, whichever effect is worse.

Interesting to note would be that the race develops first like wolves, but ages slower, with the second birthday being a benchmark for them to start the development towards a bipedal stance, and their cognitive development is […]

The races herein thus have the mortal heritage trait. This trait lets them choose a base race of sorts from a list, and gains the race-trait noted. The Disguise check to pass off as said race is not modified, […]

Cool: The xaursi are differentiated between 2 subspecies – the diurnal xal and the nocturnal oso (which is btw. also noted in the abbreviated NPC-reference), who are, in a nice linguistic touch, obviously named after the binary stars of the system.

The archetype nets an alternate class feature at 2nd level, namely clutch bond, which allows for the formation of partner bonds with two willing nondragonkin creatures simultaneously. All members of the clutch roll initiative and share the highest result, which is a pretty […]

Depending on the threat level and your stance on the species, you could emphasize “enigma”, “malice” or “lice.” This is a really clever neologism that made me smile with glee.   So, what do we get?   Grays can choose from 3 new feats:   -Gray Telepathy: Nets a lashunta’s limited telepathy; may be taken additional times […]
