So today I’m going to provide a little bit of useful information for people looking to run a Starfinder campaign, who want something a little more complex than “wizards and artificial gravity took care of all the problems” in locations.
Today, having been reading The Atrocity Archives and having my newly-acquired PDF of Starfinder sitting on my hard drive, I’m going to describe what might potentially be the most terrifying creature possible in a sci-fi setting. Credit to Charlie Stross for the basic idea.
Today I want to talk about the three genres of adventure in space and compare them for the purposes of tabletop play. These are science fiction, which can itself be split into hard and soft forms; science fantasy, which the best known example of is Star Wars; and space opera, which regards science as a thing it used as a vague starting point before blending it with the kind of over-the-top antics you might expect from a pulp adventure novel.
