Alien Archive 4 will give Starfinder players and GMs a whole lot of new options when making characters and adventures for the game. In this preview, we get a look at one of the new species as well as a look at grafting, getting bits of someone else attached to you all permanent-like.
From the article:
Today we continue a series sampling the Starfinder Alien Archive 4!
If you are new to Starfinder, the Alien Archives hold a trove of tools for players and GMs alike.
For players “AA4” holds a dozen races with full rules, letting you play everything from a fungus-uplifted animal to a humanoid made of magical coral. Last week we looked at the astriapi. We showcase at the copaxi below.
For GMs there are nearly 100 uncanny life-forms both classic and new, from the batlike grioth and horrifying brain collector to the vengeful endling and dreaded plasmalisk. Grafts were established in the Appendix 1: CREATING MONSTERS AND OTHER NPCS in the first Starfinder Alien Archive. They were further developed or expanded upon the subsequent Alien Archive volumes.
Now, Alien Archive 4 adds species grafts—new rules for grafting the strange physical traits of other species onto your own character, creating a staggering array of customization options!
