Here we go again! By now you know the drill… I disappear from the blog for a couple of months and the come August I’m back for #RPGaDay2018
Thankfully my fellow posters keep you busy in my absence, but for the third (excuse me I checked and it turns out it’s the) fourth year in a row I’m here to participate in this wonderful initiative started by David F. Chapman, #RPGaDay. Where we celebrate all the wonderful things about our hobby by talking, blogging, posting, tweeting or live streaming about it; however you communicate on the Internet, the point is to join the conversation.

A couple of weeks ago I found about a new product in Kickstarter. With the success of Starfinder there are a slew of new third-party products available. Many push the system in new and interesting directions. However, I learned about this project vial the Google+ Stargazer’s World Community. The author shared the campaign, and I was really intrigued by the fact the project was being created in Mexico.

Sunglar: How did you start playing role-playing games? Continue reading Distress Call, a Starfinder adventure on Kickstarter, an interview with the author.
Here is a follow up to yesterday’s post. This time around I try adapting the alien species introduced to the Star Frontier’s game in the supplement Zebulon’s Guide to the Frontier for Stars Without Number, revised edition.
While I used the rules for alien player characters in page 231 of the SWN revised, I took many liberties, and attempted to balance them in other ways. This approach still requires some playtesting, and that is exactly why I’m sharing this document. For this conversion I am using my Character Creation House Rules and Grappling rules I wrote for the game.
These are the alien Foci for each of the species:
