    I played a myconid bard in a one-shot a while back; he was a real fungi.

    With his high Charisma, most people took a lichen to him.

    They really broke the mold when they made him.

    I have been noodling over the idea of a myconid crime boss, though.

    "Does Mycellus Wallace look like a lich? Then why are you trying to turn him like one?"

    ...which unfortunately then leads to "You know what they call a Quarter Pounder in Aundair?", "I give my mummy a foot massage", etc. etc...

    His covers were a spore imitation of the original songs though.

    I want to play a Conrasu so bad.

    They feel like a real challenge, role-playing wise, which excites me a bunch.

    From my brief exposure to them, I imagine I'd take a lot of inspiration from the Vorlons in Babylon 5.

    I am glad starfinder 2e is pathfinder 2e compatible. I really would love to play a conrasu but they are so freaking weird it is just hard to justify/roleplay in normal pathfinder because they are just show stopingly weird it is really hard to figure how how you could get around in a pathfinder city without everybody just stopping and going what in the holy heck are you and just being massively disruptive.

    My shroom is of a subspecies that's small, speedy, and sneaky, and they're a storm sorcerer so they'll stealthily sling spells with subtle metamagic. At least until they start to spread their static, then shit'll squirt from spooked scoundrels

    I was informed there were not enough dogs in the Beast Wing pdf so I'm making an effort to add more dogs (Because furs are 100% dogs). Also the opening like 10 pages are heavily dinosaur biased for *reasons*.

    So the immortal triumvirate get a golden retriever space paladin on their opening faction section

    Aaaand now I want to put this guy in the campaign as an NPC, but I probably shouldn't because I used my actual dog as a reference and I know I'll be incredibly precious about him lol.


    Generally excited for tomorrow though! The players will be meeting on a station to be briefed on their opening mission and everything is immediately going to go to shit (because of course), with pirates attacking the station, kidnapping the person they're supposed to be escorting, and the damage causing corpse reanimating nanotech to escape containment. So the party will be having a nice dinner, getting briefed, maybe doing a little side quest and fighting some hooligans who try to mug them to introduce the combat rules. Followed by fighting space pirates and space zombies to get to their ships while the station falls apart.

    Incredible!

    This is not important but there is a period missing after ‘were they to join the war’, and a space is needed between ‘agents,for’.

    Questions!
    Are the dinosaurs feathery or old school?
    Do you have separate melee rules to dogfight rules? I’m imaging so, so is one simplified?
    Are the pirates bugs, apes or not a reference to Star Fox or Metroid?

    Fixed.

    I'm strongly biased towards feathery dinosaurs. So most of them have feathers in the art, but lore-wise you can play whatever kind of space animal you want without much restriction.

    There's ground combat rules and space combat rules. The space combat rules are the same as the ground rules with the following changes:
    -You use your ships stats in space rather than your own
    -There's a speed mechanic that determines if you can tail someone else (need to match or beat their speed), and attacks have a chance to miss based on your speed
    -Close combat on the ground is bi-directional (you're either engaged with the other formation or you're not), in space you tail the other ship/group rather than just being *engaged* (and you can't shoot backwards) so there's a bit more of a "bogey on my tail" thing going on. And you can get chains of ships chasing one another.
    -There's a special barrel roll action for breaking off when your tailed (whereas in ground combat you can just move to be at range).

    The pirates aren't species aligned (nothing really is), and the pirate faction is actually one of the Phalanx members (player heritage factions) who united against the Maw (generic evil expansionist space fascists). But the pirate faction being composed of disparate pirate vessels, is a bit less organized, so in this case the pirate attack is from some members of the faction who, now that the war is over, would rather get back to the good old days of attacking ships and doing crimes rather than being lap dogs for the other members of the phalanx.

    I figured to hell with it, my lil mushy is gonna look mostly like Spaw from BG3, but way tiny and with a morel cap instead of whatever gigantic bracket thing Spaw has going on up top. Shimmery skin and everything, my subspecies can apparently shift their skin coloration over the course of a minute to blend in with local plant life and fungi. Gonna be the most sneaky

    Oh, and they have only one eye and no other visible humanoid facial features because I always gotta be real weird

    The Lancer core book on Amazon is on sale for $45ish, and is also included in their currently running "Buy two, get one free" deal on books, games, etc. Evil megacorp bad, but deal pretty good.

    However you end up getting it, it's a beautiful book

    I also love the game, but it's very much a mechanics heavy wargame style combat system and leaves whatever happens when you're not inside a mech to you to figure out

    Turns out the BackerKit page does not understand time zones and my livestream ended up going three hours instead of two. Sorta grueling!

    But it's over and I have a substantial chunk of change to begin becoming a real boyan actual game designer what develops and releases product.

    One of the things I find fascinating about fantasy player species is that they so often use humans as a vanilla physical baseline, while not recognizing that we have a number of special physical abilities most animals lack. We have an ability to handle toxins and diseases that rivals dedicated scavengers and our ability to go for long walks in hot weather is remarkable.

    Imagine if humans got a bonus to poison and disease, and the default travel and temperature handling was reduced, with humans getting a bonus that puts them back where they started.

    humans as the tough enduring CON species in a really cool idea I love that. sure the <alien 1> are strong and the <alien 2> are fast but you just cannot beat a human at endurance theyll still be walking when a mechs batteries run out etc

    fun fact, conrasu don't have the plant nourishment feature that leshies have, so they still need to eat food to survive

    i like to imagine they insert sustenance directly into the orb

    Yeah, the Kobold Press mushroomfolk entry doesn't mention food or eating, so since the adventure was about food I just said fuck it and said they had a mouth. But in the future I'ma just have em sit in a pile of decaying plant and animal matter and absorb nutrients

    One thing I think is really interesting about humans too is that our bones heal better from fractures than most other animals for some reason.

    Probably because of all the necromancers pushing us to drink milk so our skeletons are strong and full of calcium

    I think this is how the fungus Leshy work as well you give up photosynthesis but gain the ability to just stand in decaying stuff for a while for food. I believe they can eat normally but don't require it eating is more for funsies.

    I remember reading something years ago, I think it was a light novel? that had some flavor of treefolk character that slept in a kiddie pool half full of water.
