  • Star Log.EM: Expansion Bays (SFRPG) This installment of the Star Log-series 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, so, as always, we begin this with a contextualization of the subject matter at hand regarding the shared and implied setting of the Xa-Osoro galaxy, summarizing two popular starship manufacturers in a nice piece of fluff.   The pdf contains a total of 8 different expansion bays, which feature a proper table with PCU required noted alongside BP cost. One of these, the Null-Space Hold, comes in 3 Mks and basically applies the same tech as the null-space […]

We then proceed to get the racial information on the Yroometji regarding their physical descriptions, home world, etc. In case you didn’t know: We’re talking about kangaroo-folk here, which is a damn fine concept! The only flavor aspect not covered here would be […]

Damn, now I really want a spamorcery-specialist! Anyways, younger technomancers (and those nerdy/young at heart) enjoy toonimancy, drawing upon concepts popularized by cartoons. This write up also mentions the Tooninomicon. It often comes in physical versions and contains this warning, in dozens of languages: “Warning! You are not B. Bunny!” Oh yeah? Yeah!   Anyways, we get […]

Now, here’s the thing – quite a lot of the releases of the companies managed to predate the Alien Archive, which means that NPC/Monster-creation couldn’t be taken into account.   Well, this book remedies that for quite a wide variety of different sources.

Well they are mortals whose bloodlines have been mutated by generations of exposure to the energies of chaos, whether by living on planets saturated by such energies or the direct lineage tracing back to beings like proteans.

The “Playing as XX“-section, as before in the series, is the only missing component in this section that contextualizes the race within Starfinder. As before, if you’re interested in Rogue Genius Games and Everyman Gaming’s shared Xa-Osoro system, you’ll be in for a bit of a treat, as the section unobtrusively notes how the races works within this implicit setting.

As before in the Star Log.EM-series, the “Playing a XX”-section that notes how you likely behave and how other races view you, is missing here.   Mechanically, gnolls get +2 Str and Con, -2 […]

We also have the new weapon fusion, biointegration, which clocks in at only 680 credits, which represents the classic means of the integrated weapon. While deployed, you can’t do anything with the hand but use that weapon. Unfusing is a move action and […]
