Firstly, this is an unofficial community blog, open to anyone inspired to write a blog here.
So today is the 17th of September, a month after the 50th Anniversary of GenCon and the debut of Paizo’s Starfinder RPG. So let us look back at this past month and reflect upon the state of the game.
Prior to Starfinder’s release, everyone seemed to be hyped. “It’s going to be the best sci-fi game” some would exclaim, while many would follow along similar lines of hyperbole. Being a sci-fi fan and someone who’s run many a d20 game (including Star Wars), I was curious how this would be handled. Is it going to be Pathfinder in Space, or is it going to actually be an interesting sci-fantasy game that brings multiple elements together in harmony?
Despite bringing more copies of the Starfinder core rulebook to Gen Con than any other single product before, Paizo has sold out of them after just one day.
Luckily, as they say, copies are out there at local game stores.
