Grab your dice and take to the stars in Starfinder, the space companion to Pathfinder from Paizo Publishing. As opposed to the base setting, where combat is a mix of traditional weaponry and magical use, Starfinder adds a fresh mix of futuristic technology. Some other additions to the Starfinder series is mechanics related to spaceship travel, spaceship combat, and faster than light travel.

The player races of Pathfinder return in Starfinder but the new setting of the game is that the planet that the events of Pathfinder take place on, Golarion, has disappeared forcing others to head out to the stars. Players will also encounter familiar monsters, though there might also be some spacey twists to them.
