Welcome to the Void. Welcome to Starjammer!

Some people look to the stars and wonder what they are, what they mean, and what is out there.

Your characters are about to find out.

Welcome to Starjammer, a wild ride through the void built upon and compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. This tome is over 200 pages of star-exploring options, including:

  • Four new player character races including the Abiarazi (shapechanging oozes), the Manu (innovative crafters of magitech), the Pasimachi (a beetle-like hive race with a wealth of genetic variations(, and the Transgenics (half human/half alien nomads)!
  • A toolbox approach to creating and customizing your own spacefaring vessels to travel the stars as explorers, traders, pirates, mercenaries, or even as a part of an organized space fleet!
  • New racial options, archetypes, and traits for all of the new races as well as for the core Pathfinder Roleplaying Game races!
  • Additional uses for skills, plus new skills to use technology!
  • New class archetypes including helical healer (cleric), shock trooper (fighter), and void tracker (ranger)!
  • New racial and class features to specialize your characters for their journeys away from their home planets, such as the Infinity Oracle Mystery, Elven Rocketjocks, and much more!
  • Unique Roles for space vessel crewmembers, specialized crew roles, and synergies between officers that grant benefits to the crew!
  • Factions of the Void, including the knowledge-seeking Bastion Incantorum, the militaristic Infinite Star Legion, the charismatic Israfel Order, the avaricious Red Tang Spice Guild, and the preservationist Shaman Knights.
  • New rules for skills used in space, including Craft (vessel), Knowledge (geography), and Profession (pilot)!
  • Over a dozen new feats for PCs in space!
  • New equipment for space-based adventures including magnetic shields, misfortune lanterns, hardsuits, dwarven steam suits, star marine armor, and more!
  • Over a dozen new spells to survive in or control the void around you!
  • Environmental hazards of space and space travel including antimagic fields, asteroid fields/meteor showers, comets, dust clouds, nebulae, Oort clouds, radiation belts, ribbon storms, solar flares, wormholes, and more!
  • Rules for planet shapes, environments, and classifications!
  • A sample gazetteer to spark your imagination when creating your own bold new worlds!

Take to the stars and begin your adventures either on your own or with a hearty crew of brave friends.

Explore the infinite reaches of the void or bring a bit of the stars to the games at your own table today!

Are there any plans in the official works/pipeline for HeroLab data files for the Starjammer products?

Any idea when the Pod version will be available? Trying to hold for a PDF + POD option.

Another potentially cool scifi game down the toilet.... Elves and Dwarves in space? That ruins it.... just my opinion.

You need the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, at a minimum. Depending on how much high-tech you want in your game, I would recommend Paizo's Technology Guide, as well, but that one is not truly required to play.

I would NOT recommend Paizo's Technology Guide, as a whole. It has some good nuggets, but mostly badly designed. Prices are not remotely balanced, power usage of items, their power capacity and what a battery is stated to give, are all weird. Honestly just use the bits you want from d20pfsrd.

Is this based around the ADnD game setting of a similar name?

You're thinking Spelljammer.

However - the same name was used for a Marvel comic.

The name used for said marvel comic title is in plural, the singular is the name of their spaceship:

Not really. Starjammer, like Spelljammer, is D&D in Space, but beyond that there aren't too many similarities, in my not-especially-informed opinion. I think there are analogs of the various kind of Spelljammer helms in the Starjammer engines: engines that burn magic items, engines that burn spells, engines that burn Con. But there are no Crystal Spheres. Starjammer so far seems to play it more straight than Spelljammer did, which is a little disappointing... but it's just the basic rules. Hopefully there will be lots of gonzo over-the-top absurdity in later supplements!

Mind, you *could* use Starjammer rules to play a very Spelljammer-like campaign, but "Spelljammerness" is not a native feature of the Starjammer rules, in my opinion.

Correct, and that is by design. :D

We wanted to make it as setting agnostic as possible while still having places to go and antagonists to encounter.

Any word on when the POD will be available? I've already gotten a PDF copy, but I definitely want a hardcover physical book as well!

How much longer until the POD version is available?
Customer avatar
March 24, 2017 3:03 am UTC
IF you have it available as POD on your publisher site, I will buy it there. Been nearly two months since it was released and it would be nice to get word if and when it is coming out one way or another!

When can we expect to see a POD version of this?

Hello there friend! We are working hard to make sure that any small alien bugs are completely removed from the product prior to sending it off to the printer. Printers hate bugs. Especially alien bugs. As soon as we get that done, we will be sending her out to the printer!

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
