Rise of the Stellarkings

Game NameRise of the Stellarkings
Game SystemStarfinder
ThemeRise of the Runelords IN SPACE!
FlavourWorld Destroying Evil, Unknown Heroes, Uncovering the Path
Plot SummaryThe space station Starpoint is medium sized station located in the Rukbat sector. A region of independent space, it is colonized by humans, but is home to all manner of species both normal and exotic. With no central government, law and order fall to the blaster and sword. However despite the roughness of sector, great wealth can be found here and it draws explorers, adventurers, and academia all in equal measure. It is here you found yourself drawn, on the last of your credits looking for a break. The station of Starpoint had a disaster five years ago when a ruptured fuel line exploded destroying the station chapel. It has taken a long time, but the citizens rebuilt it larger and grander, extending the hull and reworking the station. Now home to a mighty cathedral, they wait for a solar eclipse to occur in the upcoming week before they dedicate the new cathedral to Desna. As you wait for the ceremony, you set out to enjoy the Swallowtail Festival occurring on the station.

Sector InformationI am going to break it down from large to small.

Our SectorRukbat Sector- The formal region designation of this area of space. Towards the galactic core it is bordered by Retori Sector home to the Chelix Empire. Towards the western galactic edge is unknown space minus a handful of small solar systems that have been founded. These are mostly home to pirate and outlaw operations. Towards the Eastern Galactic Edge, the Christi system home to five or six small kingdoms. It has no formal government and is instead divided between 4 small solar empires and uncharted wilderness. Throughout this are small mining, exploration, and farming communities that trade with the four systems.

 


Player Portion

DM PortionSo about me. I have been a DM and player here for just over 9 years now. Well at work, I thought of how much fun I had running Rise of the Runelords several years ago so I decided to do it again. However I wanted to give it a fun twist so I will be converting it to a Starfinder Game. Meaning well the basic idea of Rise of the Runelords and the plot will happen, things will be altered to work with the IN SPACE theme.

Starfinder races yes, pathfinder races or homebrew no, but I will need a SRD link for it as all of my books are packed. Also, I reserve the right to say no to anything not core or create a modified weaker version if it with you if it seems extremely strong compared to others.

Not at all. New players to both system and site are welcome.

For the second trait, you have to convert it from Pathfinder 1E. The link I included will tell you if a skill name was changed like Knowledge Local to Culture for example. If you need more help figuring out how to convert it let me know and I can look at it.

But here is a list of what is probably close to every trait ever published for Pathfinder. Some are probably more useful than others, but again let me know if need help converting one or ideas. You don't have to take two, however it is a free bonus to your character so there is almost no conceivable reason not to take a second one.

Cool idea, mighty!

(and let me say, I've been gaming with Mighty for almost 7 of those 9 years? More?

He's a steady, solid gamer.)

A few questions:
- What exactly can we take from Rise of Runelords for character creation, apart from the trait?
- From which sources can we choose the second trait?

I don't understand your first question. Species, Class, and Theme should be Starfinder or converted Pathfinder (from the back of the Core Book). Location wise, Starpoint has all the various spots and people of Sandpoint, just in a space station instead of a town on the coast and more non-named NPCs. The various regional locations all exist except instead of being a nearby bandit den or mountain range, it will be a moon base or a asteroid belt in a nearby system. Most of the galactic map is generated from the world map of Pathfinder, just expand it 3D instead of flat surface. So Chelix on the map is bordering to the south, in this universe it is a region of space towards the Galactic Core. I hope that helps.

Any from a Paizo source book outside of another adventure path. A good list can be found d20pfsrd.com

I see a lot of interest, but not many apps. If there is anything I can clarify or assist with, let me know.

It could be helpful to proactively work through those RotR campaign traits.

I'm kind of inclined to have the connection to Daviren Hosk, but what would Goblin Squash Stables become in this setting? And I'm guessing the trait benefit would be something other than the horse and related equipment.
