Re: Letters From the Front

I keep meaning to post here.


So my friend group has been running two long term games in Starfinder and 5E, and since the quarantine has been doing one-shots in other systems.


In Starfinder, the longest running, I play Marcus Decimus Gallus (hah), a dragonkin gladiator who fought in the Highrocke circuit, a league that used "life fields" in each rink to bring people back from the brink of death after each fight. A new company took over the league and wanted to turn it into an overdramatic sequins-and-makeup mockery of honest combat. Marcus resisted the changes so much that the new owners disabled the life field in one match, causing Marcus to perma-kill one of the gladiators he'd taken under his wing. As a result, he has a price on his head and just wants to retire and grill, for god sake. Despite being a former gladiator, he's always the one who wants to de-escalate, and my favorite moment is when he nat 20'd a diplomacy roll and avoided a boss fight completely.

In 5E, my character is Elithrien Starleaf. He's somewhat of a stereotypical elf druid - conventionally handsome, long haired, elaborate druidic robes - except he adores insects. All of his wild shape forms and druid spells are bug-themed. Right now his wildshape form is a rhino beetle. In his story, he was disowned by his family, who have been druids for generations, for not choosing something more dignified like birds of prey or wolves. He's really, really bitter about it.


We played a Mutants and Masterminds one-shot, where I played Samson McCabe, freedom fighter from an alternate universe who piloted a diesel-powered battlesuit named Cammy that he repaired using classic car parts.

The Star Wars RPG short-term we just started has me playing Cada Bael, sort of a Star Wars version of Art Bell - gentle-voiced conspiracy theorist radio show host. He's convinced the Death Star was an inside job.

Re: Letters From the Front

Excellent! Welcome, PK. How long have you been playing that Starfinder campaign? I love a particular Starfinder live-play podcast (Androids & Aliens), and I'm curious to hear from a veteran what it's like to play over a long period of time. It seems complicated!

Re: Letters From the Front

Gosh, I think since June of last year. Almost a year now. We used to do twice a week but when schedules changed and we introduced the 5E game, we went to once every other week. I don’t think it’s particularly bad to play over the long term. We’re leveling somewhat slowly, we’re level 7 still, so that might help.

I like your Starfinder character's backstory.

Re: Letters From the Front

Wow that is some diversity.
Tell me more about the druid. How big is this rhino-beetle he transform into?

Re: Letters From the Front

I think I imagine it as three? feet tall at the top of its “head”. For the interests of mechanical simplicity, I took the stats from a crocodile in the monster manual and just reskinned it. The croc’s “lockdown” ability when it attacks really works for the beetle pinch.

His previous wild shape form was a centipede, which I reskinned a wolf for.

Re: Letters From the Front

Giant centipede, nice. Why are they called wild shape forms?
