James issthe fiction editor for Paizo, he is also the creative director for the Starfinder RPG releasing at Gen Con 2017.  In this interview we discuss Starfinder. We touch upon the character classes and how Paizo plans on making them feel futuristic without loosing their fantasy aspect.  We go on to talk about tech and how religion matures in Starfinder.  It was a lot of fun and I hope what we discussed doesn’t change too much while it’s on the drawing board.

I have to admit I was skeptical about Starfinder at first, but the more I hear the more I like it!

Something wicked – and monstrous – is stirring around the rugged Isgeri town of Saringallow, where the hated legacy of noble Chelish diabolists runs deep. With the recent disappearance of apprentices, the nearby menace of particularly grotesque goblins, and the unsettling buzzing coming from the old Sarini estate, Mayor Sandra Trinelli only knows one thing: she needs help, and fast! The heroes must confront one of these crises – or all three – if they hope to stem the darkness that looms.

 

Gallows of Madness is a 64-page, highly versatile collection of three adventures for 1st-level characters. Geared toward beginning GMs and players while retaining challenging content for veterans, these adventures can be prepared quickly and run separately or in any order. Bonus content includes new monstrous foes and a gallery of NPCs to help connect the adventures, plus a gorgeous double-sided regional and miniatures-scale tactical map!
