Enhance Your Hero

The Starfinder galaxy is an expansive and diverse collection of eclectic planets, strange creatures, myriad cultures, and ancient traditions! Characters can draw from far more backgrounds, heritages, and training regimens than can possibly be contained in just one core book. The Starfinder Character Operations Manual expands the universe of what is possible for characters of any class or race, providing new choices at every stage of character creation and advancement. Whether you are a veteran or new to the game, there’s something here for you! Inside this book, you’ll find the following:

  • Three new character classes—the biohacker, the vanguard, and the witchwarper—that add the power to alter biology, control entropy, and tap into alternate realities.
  • Additional options for all the classes and races found in the Starfinder Core Rulebook.
  • Expanded selections of feats, spells, and equipment, including shields.
  • More roles and crew actions for starship combat, and a system for downtime activities outside of battle.

Comet And Get It

The heroes must hunt for an icy comet hurtling through the void, the supposed home of a secret monastery dedicated to the insect goddess Hylax. Once there, they’ll have to gain the trust of the inhabitants by undertaking a series of trials. If they succeed, they will be granted access to a powerful artifact that will aid in the battle against the ravenous, nigh-unstoppable Swarm.

The Streets Beneath Your Feet

Whether the heroes are tracking their quarry through the access tunnels beneath a space station’s public corridors or looking for the source of weird alien tech in a hidden subterranean factory, no Game Master wants to spend time drawing every air recycler and trash compactor. Fortunately, with Paizo’s latest Starfinder Flip-Mat, you don’t have to! This line of gaming maps provides ready-to-use science-fantasy set pieces for the busy Game Master.

A special coating on each Flip-Mat allows you to use wet erase, dry erase, AND permanent markers with ease! Removing permanent ink is easy—simply trace over any permanent mark with a dry erase marker, wait 10 seconds, then wipe off both marks with a dry cloth or paper towel.

From a mysterious cave high in the Barrier Peaks, they come: savage raiders of unknown origin laying waste to castle and keep, leaving no survivors. The land is in turmoil and only a band of stalwart heroes dares to launch an expedition into the soaring mountains to stamp out this vile menace. What they discover in those lofty peaks is something beyond their comprehension. A danger spawned from the very stars above.

A crashed starship, buried for centuries beneath the Barrier Peaks, has awoken, and now its alien inhabitants—crazed robots, eerie androids, and even stranger things—endanger the world. The adventurers must confront these threats and navigate the unearthly interior of the wrecked starship, puzzling over and mastering alien technology to defeat their foes. If you’ve ever had the urge to zap an umber hulk with a laser rifle while commanding a robotic servant, this adventure is for you!

Herein you will find high-quality scans from multiple printings of the original first edition adventure module, plus commentary by gaming luminaries.

This is the perfect framework for a fully playable extended dungeon delve, suitable for taking your fifth edition campaign in out-of-this-world directions, with a distinct old-school vibe.

Dungeons & Dragons RPG: 5th Edition Fantasy – Malady of Kings

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gods are moved by greater things than mortal man.

Lonely upon his gilded chair St. Luther, god of Aihrde, Lord of Dreams, King Palatine of Kayomar, father, and husband, sits in restless slumber. He dreams of times long forgotten and people long passed from the world. He knows not that he slumbers, nor that he dreams. He sits, dreaming forgotten dreams, stalking the corridors of his memory, reliving the moments of his life.

Forever is it the malady of kings that they forget.

He has forgotten that he left a world of enemies. He has forgotten the power of wizards and the hatred of man. He has forgotten all this and more.

Vivienne, his Queen and one great love, died. This he knew; but lost in the machinations of his Dreaming were promises made, of a ring he would give her. And for want of this her spirit lingered in the world to haunt her crypt, looking for him and the ring.

The crypt, the Friden Anhohe, is haunted by her ghost. It is up to the characters to find it, discover who or what she is and to free her from her haunted curse. But they are not alone, for an ancient and vile wizard, who wishes to gain access to the Sea of Dreams and to Saint Luther, has learned of her fate and wishes to keep her in this role, for it troubles the Lord of Dreams and makes him vulnerable to the wizard’s attack.

A high-level adventure for a party of 4-8 characters. Play as stand-alone or part of a larger series.
