Starcraft Rpg

Game NameStarcraft Rpg
Game SystemStarfinder
Themehigh sifi mild fantasy and horror
FlavourSurvival,action, adventure,horror
Plot Summarynote: this is attempt two of this time but much more finished

left-aligned image




The Zerg swarm have been splintered, Raynors raiders have gone missing Arcturus Mengsk and his dominion have retained control of korhal, and the inner systems. But the outer planets have been abandoned, the few small governments that have formed are trying to maintain control but to little success. One planet however has stabilized this is where an unlikely group meets on the colony planet of Servain.

note I will regularly answer questions and add new plot teasers


player amount and application rules I will need 6 players with detailed character backgrounds pathfinder 1e races are welcome if don't have the starfinder books.

posting rate 1-2 times a week

20 point buy

use medium leveling for your character (sorry for over looking this)

app rules

character level: 3

starting wealth 30,000 credits pull from starfinder books for pathfinder player 1 credit is 1 gold d20pfsrd is also allowed

Homebrew is welcome please contact me in a pm so i can look it over

races: all

backstory: optional but would be nice

character description: required picture to go with are optional but nice

an example of role play: not required but nice

roll in the group: required

who they were affiliated with before: example sons of korhal

filling out all above points completely will give you a very good chance of acceptance

everyone has an equal chance at a slot but the more detailed you are the better your chances

any alignment

you start on a arctic planets so i recommend some power armor or warm clothes

if you play a human you get a basic set of power armor max value of 2000 credits and its necessary feats as bonus feats

the dead line is now never once i have two players game will start and then four to six more players will be added over time Good Luck Have Fun

the reason for this drastic change is mainly cause of how long most starfinder games take to get going at least from my experiences

note there will be vehicles from the Protoss and Terran faction available when game starts as they are to powerful to start with



stats for protoss player race
right-aligned image

Protoss are of strong will and body giving +2str and +2wis

protoss are unified by the Khala giving +2 to resist mind control but some reject the khala opting to become dark Templar granting a shadow phase ability move 15ft instantly 3 times per day

Protoss specialize in hand to hand and psyker type combat, very few become dark templar an as such have developed abliitys for this. Protoss with the fighter or an equivalent class gain charge as a bonus feat. Protoss that can cast spells gain the feed back ability at will dealing 2d6 damage and the psi storm ability 2 per day dealing 5d6 damage in a 20ft area

all Protoss that are connected to the khala gain a khaydarin amulet removing the need to eat and drink. (this is because in lore I have found no point as to how the protoss eat as they lack a mouth and communicate telepathically) dark Templar gain a void amulet providing the same benefit with an added plus 2+ to stealth called blessing of the void.

note the khala is not a hive mind it is a telepathic matrix used to communicate

racial items

Psi blade 200 cedits

a wrist blade made of pure plasma able to cut through tungsten 1d8 damage

khaydarin armor and plasma sheilds 3000 credits

a personal set of khaydarin armor ornately tailored to the owner giveing +5 to kenetic ac the shileding gives +10 energy ac

Glaive cannon 1000 credits

range 150ft 1d8 damage

this glaive resonates with the psionic power of the user

purifier Glaive cannon 20,000 credits

range 250ft damage 2d12 can be fired once every 2 rounds

this Glaive cannon was and used by the purifiers a faction of protoss who religiously hate the zerg only the most honored Daelaam warriors can get there hands on this powerful psionic weapon

note if you are not protoss but still want these items work a positive relationship with ether the purifier protoss faction or Daelaam faction and add ether Daelaam or purifier to the item name please note this rule dose not apply to the purifier Glaive cannon



my style
my style heavily uses the rule of cool and 3d movement so don't be afraid to be in depth with movement and fighting I also believe that characters should be able to make comments and quips whenever they wish adding to the realism making for a more enjoyable game and time spent I will not be mad if you make more then your allotted actions so fi your character has a renown for firing 20 shots from a pistol in 5 seconds do it with a -4 to hit i want an enjoy able experience just done take advantage of that or i will drop you from the game as over using that kind of ability can make combat boring and unenjoyeble i want it to be fair and fun for all if you have questions for me send me a pm. just be creative with your character and use my styles freedoms in reason DO NOT EXPLOIT THEM I will bring down the hammer on those that exploit them



reason for pathfinder races and classes I have allowed these within reason, and so people without the starfinder books can play. but how does this work you may ponder well when I made the original version of this game, someone suggested a wormhole which I liked so a large number of all pathfinder races and monsters entered, my game universe and please if you want to use a pathfinder class pm me and i will look it over.

I'd like to express interest. not familiar with Starcraft so please accept this as a placeholder while i do some reading up and see what character inspiration comes to me.

my Initial thought is a Terran Bounty Hunter Operative - Zerg Hunter Specialist/Cold Weather Survivalist.

Thanks. got the starfinder books so working up the stats now with background to follow. working out to be what i hope is a fairly decent sniper and survivalist, focusing on cold weather benefits so my mind is going to a Liam Neeson from the Grey Movie type.

Servain Colony Native hired by companies to provide sniper security/Overwatch against the native wildlife/Zergs while their engineers work on research stations or mining outposts. whatever brings people and facilities into the snowy wastes of Servain (will need some help with Servain info though)

Info on ServainServain is a arctic world with an average surface temperature of -50c to -80c the terrain is mountainous and rough
the colony was established twenty years after the brood wars. the colony mainly trades minerals from the mines with the near by protoss base servain is also a big spot for mercenary's and adventures the big threat on the planet is the feral zerg hives that dot the tundra


i cant reval any more without spoiling the plot

Hi, I'm also not that practical in starfinder nor starcraft.

So you're saying that playing a Zerg is not kosher?

More seriously, you mentioned usong other races, in the lore we could just say "they're allied with the marines/protos"?

Trying to think at a race/class combiation that could fit a "fish out of water" kind of pc on paizo.com so i don't look too foolish while saying something completely out of place canon-wise.

Mechanic doesn't sound so shabby..

I would suggest for that a kobalt or gobline maybe a fey type i don't know any good classes but i do allow pathfinder 1e so might be something there but keep in mind the sub zero temperatures of the planet

the big reason that zerg is unplayable is that the zerg is a hive mind I am open to hombrew attempts at the zerg that's why the dead line is so far off I like seeing what people come up with

but keep up the good work lore drop later today

lore drop for the town of New Servainfirst yes I'm aware that it's unoriginal but throughout history humans have been unoriganal and I liked how it sounds so don't hate me onto to the lore

The town of New Servain is not a bustling metropolis or quite hamlet, Its somewhere between crime ridden anarchy and barley scraping by the local government is a mix of corruption, And two powerful mercenary groups the two being the Defenders Of Adun and, The Hands Of Man the day to day affairs are manly run by corrupted Hands Of Man the few uncorrupted officials are from the Defenders Of Adun. the main export of New Servain is mineral and vespene gas both are used to build the other big exports is the adventures guild where sell swords,freelance mercs and adventures gather for jobs and a place to rest after a job. The town was founded on top of the remains of a zerg hive so regular zerg attacks drive most people who can afford it away.



info on the Defenders Of AdunThe Defenders Of Adun operate mainly out of their base the Spear Of Adun named after the executor Adun the Spear was moved here before the fall of Aiur the Protoss home world and Its main production facility's have since fell dormant, and thousands of Protoss Templar lay in stasis deep in side the ships bowels the Defenders support anyone they can and regularly purge zerg from the surface but due to their low numbers and the inability to reawaken the Templar in stasis it is a struggle the few sub systems active however give them the tactical advantage, Even thought the ship is grounded and almost out of solarite for the solarite core.




info on the Hands Of ManThe Hands Of Man are a large group of Terran's only looking to line their pockets with credits made of selling vespene gas and minerals for extreme prices. And barley bat an eye when someone in the mines dies sparking, a lot of distaste from the Defenders Of Adun who use robotic probes for dangerous mining tasks rather than risk lives as probes are easy to replace compared to actual, people but despite this the hands keep disregarding all risks associated with vespene and mineral mining to line their pockets and as such the town it rampant with crime and unofficial businesses. Despite the lack of governing the Protoss manage to keep the status quo and by proxy the town intact even with all the crime and wrong doings the town still produces some honest citizens.

Cross
right-aligned image


Name: Nathan Cross / Talandar
Occupation: Freelance Corporate Overwatch Security Sniper - Native Guide - Search and Rescue Survivalist - Protoss/Terran Envoy
Class: Operative
Theme: Bounty Hunter
Gender Identity: Male
Race: Terran
Age: 23
Homeworld: Servain (Birthworld was Mar Sara)


Appearance:

Standing a hair over 6 foot tall, Cross has the solid physique of a man used to hard work and severe weather. a very common thing on Servain. Ice Blue eyes are a stark contrast to his Dark mahony skin and black hair, kept short to fit better into his Cold weather Suit, his face brushed with stubble. not a personal style choice, just his dislike (and sometimes inability) of shaving on a regular basis. Cross carries a large white scar down the left side of his face, running from his temple to the top of his cheekbone, a reminder from the Zerg attack which claimed his mother. Other than his eyes and now his scar, Cross is an Average man, by no means Ugly but few would call him classically Handsome, just Average Looking


Personality:

Nathan makes friends easily and is personably enough, but his solitary work and nature makes keeping them difficult. he is often out alone in the wilds for days if not weeks at a time so he finds it easier to just have passing acquaintances than true friends. with his new fear of his descent into madness this could be a blessing in his mind. Nathan, or Cross as he more commonly goes by, is at heart a good man, a loyal friend to those very few he has managed to keep and a hardworking valued member of the colony, he likes to see himself as a cowboy from the old Earth Vids he was so fond of growing up but maybe this is just his way of coping with the loneliness which comes with his job, Thank the White for Rose, the artificial personality in his Datapad. He knows intellectually she isnt real but she has sure been a boon to his life, and sanity


Backstory:

If you ask Cross where he was born, he will tell you his homeworld is Servain. Its the only home hes ever known, but as much as he loves the world and he is uniquely suited to it, he is keenly aware of other worlds, warmer worlds with more wildlife and vegetation, and color than his own. But despite what he will tell you, Cross wasnt actually born on Servain, he was brought here by his parents when he was just 1 year old. he will tell you its because his parents wanted to settle this world and mine for Vespene and Minerals, which is technically true. but not the whole truth.

Nathans Parents were on the run when they came to Servain as part of the colonist setup. His father was a Ghost in the employ of Vice Admiral Alexei Stukov. One of the Covert operatives in his Elite Personal Guard and his mother was a Medical Officer on the DSS Aleksander, the flagship launched during the UED Expeditionary Forces campaign to bring the Koprulu Sector under the control of the UED at the end of what became known as the Brood Wars. both of his parents defecting after witnessing Admiral Stukov using a Zerg Invasion as a test on an Unsuspecting Dominion Colony. women and children slaughtered along with their troops.

This was too much for his parents to be a part of and they left, knowing they would spend their lives on the run, they assumed new identities and left military life to start anew on a New colony in the far reaches, the Colony that would become Servain. It was by pure chance that Admiral Stukov was killed at the end of the war and his Guard disbanded shortly after their defection. a twist of fate which prevented them from being hunted down as traitors, something they sadly didnt not learn about for many years

And so they started a new life moving from colony to colony before finally settling in Servain, Raising Nathan as a Native and training him to be a use to the colony as he grew older, not only how to hunt and survival, how to fight and defend his home from the Zerg which were prevalent in Servain but also how to turn his hand to many of the other trades needed in a new colony, Mechanic, Medic, Pilot, Hunter, Guide. a Jack of all trades and of immense use to a newly formed Colony, His true talents however seemed to be in Languages, Cultures and Survival. Nathan found he had an ear for langauges, picking them up easily and had an interest in other cultures, especially the Protoss. it was almost as if he was destined to become one of the Defenders of Adun, acting as interpreter between the Protoss Towns and New Servain on numerous occassions as one of the few with fluency in mulitple Protoss Dialects.

But as is the way with Life, Fate had other ideas and 5 years ago, at the age of 18 the Zerg launched a devastating raid on the colony, an attack which claimed the life of his Mother and the sanity of his Father, although not until later in his fathers case. After the death of his mother, his Father Jackson descended into grief and the bottle, his life falling apart. Jackson had always been the strongest man Nathan had ever known, he was his Hero and seeing him like this was just too much for him to bare to watch and he spent more and more time out in the cold wastes of Servain, finding his talents for survival and marksmanship in high demand by the Mining colony to keep their workers safe from Zerg and other wildlife while mining and transporting Minerals and Vespene.

Nathan and his father are now estranged and rarely speak, Nathan retreating into the wilds and his work and his father having moved onto Terrazine Gas. Cross hasnt asked where his father is getting the potent psionic reagent but he suspects the Hands of Man are supplying it. He fears the answer. Although he has always suspected his father had psionic potential, his alcoholic rantings of later years seeming to suggest he was a Ghost Agent before coming to New Servain, he never really took the thought seriously until he saw his father on Terrazine. Now he believes the stories and seeing his fathers, his heros, decent into madness he fears himself. has he inherited his fathers psionic abilities and is this what is in store for him? madness as his mind tears itself apart?

lovely thank you Dylan

Assuming that the local protoss are familar with your character history add the honor name Talandar witch in Khalani means ("One Who Bears a Strong Heart") for all the strife you have endured you have a strong heart

and add a single psi blade as a gift from the current local leader Executor Ynorich (blue blade as it was foraged by Daelaam protoss)

the blade represents your gift for their language and understanding of the culture the name and blade are honorary and recognized by all protoss as a symbol of trust the blade is embroider with Executor Ynorich's seal officiating your status and an envoy and trusted ally of the protoss

I see this as a fitting reward for all the research you did for this game and the well written back story
