So much stuff coming out from Paizo for Starfinder! What are you most interested in for 2021?

I am most excited about Tech Revolution, more Tech stuff! And the Galaxy Exploration Manual comes out the first week of June. What are your thoughts?

Starfinder #30 Puppets Without Strings, released July 2020

It has the Spell Sergeant archetype which is one of the only ways Starfinder offers gish-style gameplay. I've been playing a character with that archetype since ~October 2020, and trying to manually account for its features since then. Would be great if this software could handle it.

I'm personally still catching up all the AP (since they contain items, locations, spells, etc). Reading Dawn of Flame at the moment.

I would say that both Tech Revolution and Galactic Magic are what I'm mostly looking forward to. Anything that adds depth to the setting. My favorite books are the Pact Worlds & Near Space. Kinda wish they would elaborate more on the worlds already listed. The Tabori Cluster, the Great Shadar, The Gideron Autority, etc.

That makes sense, @Tohmaturge. @WatersLethe, I get it. The lack of updates means I can't spend money on HLO.

True dat. I'm personally limiting my own chronicle to the material that is supported by HLO since I'm using the software as my single source of truth.

Hear that LWD ? I got money to spend on ya !

I think we can add the Alien Character Deck to this list.

Similar issue - I'm holding off on making an Esper-themed Mystic until the Psychic Magic material in Starfinder AP #23 (Hive of Minds, from the Attack of the Swarm AP) is added to HLO. If there were an option to include custom theme names, theme abilities, and custom spell names, just for tracking purposes, it would be easier to go build the character without having every source published included.

Yeah, it's honestly nearly a dealbreaker on this software. I'm actively looking for an alternative, and if I find one I'll abandon the hundreds of dollars I've already spent.

What's the point of having an expensive character gen software if I'm constantly referring to a google docs character sheet with my actual character details?
