Another RPG bundle offer - Starfinder Empires

A bundle of third party adventures etc. for Starfinder, the SF/Fantasy version of the popular Pathfinder rules, best summed up as D&D... in... Spaaaaaaaace!

This offer features third-party supplements compatible with the Starfinder space-fantasy RPG from Paizo Publishing. Starfinder is a spacefaring version of Pathfinder, with classes, races, magic and monsters transmogrified from their Golarion origins, and with new systems for high technology, starship travel, and space combat. Starfinder inherits Pathfinder's Open Game License, and indie publishers -- notably Rogue Genius Games, Legendary Games, and Fat Goblin Games, the three represented in this all-new offer -- have supported the game with a galaxy of supplements and sourcebooks that enhance any Starfinder campaign with new planets, aliens, starships, robots, monsters, magic, and adventures.

(These third-party supplements require Paizo Publishing's Starfinder core rulebook, which is not included in this offer. Paizo's website offers several free Starfinder quickstart adventures.)

We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format). Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these books have NO DRM (Digital Restrictions Management), and our customers are entitled to move them freely among all their devices.

Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief gets protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$138. Customers who pay just US$12.95 get all four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $66) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the Rogue Genius Starfarer's Companion rules expansion (retail price $20); Legendary's 450-page Alien Bestiary (retail $30), with nearly 300 monsters both classic and new; Fat Goblin's Alien Evolution: Cosmic Race Guidebook (retail $10), with two dozen playable alien races; and the introductory adventure Blood Space and Moon Dust (retail $6).

Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $24.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with seven more titles worth an additional $72, including the Star Empires Compendium (retail $25), which lets you found and run your own stellar empire in the mode of Legendary's Ultimate Kingdom series; the Advanced Skill Guide (retail $20); Service Bots and Synthetic Companions (retail $7); three Blood Space Gazetteers (The Solar Court, Tor, Ulo) set in the Xa-Osoro System introduced in Blood Space and Moon Dust ($5 each, total retail $15); and Pirates of the Starstream (retail $5), a campaign sourcebook set in the buccaneer haven of 8-Pieces Port.

I'll be honest, I'm not a huge fan of the system, or of its source, Pathfinder - they're OK, but use things like character classes that go back to the beginnings of role playing and feel a little clunky today. Basically, if you like Starfinder and already own the rules this is probably a good deal. If not, bear in mind that the rules currently cost around $40-$60 depending on the set you buy, and think fairly carefully before buying add-ons for a game you don't own.
