Starjammer is an exciting variation on the standard Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules. This rule system is not to be confused with the Starfinder Roleplaying Game by Paizo, Inc. which is to be released at Gen Con 2017.
The Starjammer Core Rulebook is over 200 pages of star-exploring options, including:
- Four new player character races including the Abiarazi (shapechanging oozes), the Manu (innovative crafters of magitech), the Pasimachi (a beetle-like hive race with a wealth of genetic variations), and the Transgenics (half human/half alien nomads)!
- A toolbox approach to creating and customizing your own spacefaring vessels to travel the stars as explorers, traders, pirates, mercenaries, or even as a part of an organized space fleet!
- New racial options, archetypes, and traits for all of the new races as well as for the core Pathfinder Roleplaying Game races!
- Additional uses for skills, plus new skills to use technology!
- New class archetypes including heliacal healer (cleric), shock trooper (fighter), and void tracker (ranger)!
- New racial and class features to specialize your characters for their journeys away from their home planets, such as the Infinity Oracle Mystery, Elven Rocketjocks, and much more!
- Unique roles for space vessel crewmembers, specialized crew roles, and synergies between officers that grant benefits to the crew!
- Factions of the Void, including the knowledge-seeking Bastion Incantorum, the militaristic Infinite Star Legion, the charismatic Israfel Order, the avaricious Red Tang Spice Guild, and the preservationist Shaman Knights.
- New rules for skills used in space, including Craft (vessel), Knowledge (geography), and Profession (pilot)!
- Over a dozen new feats for PCs in space!
- New equipment for space-based adventures including magnetic shields, misfortune lanterns, hardsuits, dwarven steamsuits, star marine armor, and more!
- Over a dozen new spells to survive in or control the void around you!
- Environmental hazards of space and space travel including antimagic fields, asteroid fields/meteor showers, comets, dust clouds, nebulae, oort clouds, radiation belts, ribbon storms, solar flares, wormholes, and more!
- Rules for planet shapes, environments, and classifications!
- A sample gazetteer to spark your imagination when creating your own bold new worlds!
Starjammer Compatibility License
If you are a publisher of Pathfinder Roleplaying Game products and would like to create products compatible with the Starjammer rules, read the following:
d20pfsrd.com Publishing Starjammer Compatibility License
1. Acceptance of Terms
You accept and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this license agreement ("License").
2. Copyrights and Trademarks
You acknowledge and agree that d20pfsrd.com Publishing owns all trademarks and copyrights in and to the Starjammer Compatibility Logo ("Compatibility Logo"). You agree not to contest d20pfsrd.com Publishing's ownership of any intellectual property rights in or to the Compatibility Logo, during the term of this License or thereafter. You also agree not to create or use any names or trademarks similar enough to our trademarks that consumers could be confused about whether the item was produced by or on behalf of d20pfsrd.com Publishing.
3. License Grant
If you are in compliance with all of the terms and conditions of this License and the usage requirements set forth in Exhibit A ("Usage Requirements"), you will be granted a non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use the Compatibility Logo in printed books, electronic books, and freely available websites in connection with products that are compatible with Starjammer, subject to the obligations and limitations set forth in this License.
You may use the Compatibility Logo only to indicate that your product is compatible with Starjammer. You may not use the Compatibility Logo unless your game product is fully compatible with Starjammer (see Section 5. Compatibility). The Compatibility Logo may only be used on Starjammer compatible products and in advertisements and websites directly promoting those products. The Compatibility Logo may only be used in the manner specified in this License and in the Usage Requirements and may not be modified except as specifically set forth in the Usage Requirements.
The Compatibility Logo may only be used under this License in connection with materials you publish under the Open Gaming License 1.0a ("OGL"), a copy of which can be viewed here. You may not use the Compatibility Logo in any way that the OGL prohibits. (Note that you are solely responsible for ensuring you use the OGL correctly.) The Compatibility Logo is designated as Product Identity, not Open Game Content, as those terms are defined in the OGL.
No license or permission is granted (either expressly or by implication) with respect to any trademarks, copyrights, or other intellectual property right except the Compatibility Logo, and any right not specifically granted hereunder is expressly reserved to d20pfsrd.com Publishing.
4. Usage Restrictions
The license granted hereunder is expressly limited to use of the Compatibility Logo in printed books, electronic books, and freely available websites. Anyone seeking a license for any other use should contact d20pfsrd.com Publishing directly.
You may not use the Compatibility Logo in a way that suggests d20pfsrd.com Publishing owns, endorses, or is in any way responsible for any part of your product, or for any conduct of your business, or that suggests that you have any relationship beyond a mere license with us, unless we have a separate agreement that lets you do so. You also may not state or suggest that we guarantee your product's compatibility with Starjammer.
The titles of your products may not include any d20pfsrd.com Publishing trademarked terms (or marks confusingly similar thereto), including "Starjammer" and variations thereof.
You may not use d20pfsrd.com Publishing's trade dress for your products or advertisements—that is, you may not design your products to look confusingly similar to d20pfsrd.com Publishing's products.
You may not do anything illegal in or with products produced under this License.
You must use your best efforts to preserve the high standard of our trademarks. You may not use this License for products that the general public would classify as "adult content," offensive, or inappropriate for minors.
You agree to use your best efforts to ensure that the licensed products are fully compatible with Starjammer as published in January, 2017. Your products may additionally be compatible with other systems.
If you wish to reference sections of Starjammer or supplemental products in your product, you may do so in the following form:
See the "Manu Racial Traits" in Chapter 1 Races of the Starjammer Core Rulebook.
You may not use page numbers, as they may change in subsequent printings. The list of products you may reference is set out in Exhibit B, which d20pfsrd.com Publishing may update at any time. You may not reference any d20pfsrd.com Publishing products that are not listed in Exhibit B without express written permission.
6. Effective Dates
The License is effective as soon as your application is accepted by d20pfsrd.com Publishing.
7. Breach and Cure
If you fail to comply with any of the terms of this License, you will be in breach and we will have the right to terminate this License. We will send notice to the contact information you provided in your registration. You will have (30) thirty days from the date we send notice to cure the breach to our satisfaction. If the breach has not been fully and completely cured, we reserve the right to terminate the License with no further notice. After termination, you will not have the right to secure a new license from us without specific written consent.
d20pfsrd.com Publishing may terminate this License at any time, at our sole discretion.
If we terminate the License due to breach, you have to immediately stop selling products that use the Compatibility Logo and you must destroy all of your inventory of those products (including all marketing material). You may not make any more products that use the Compatibility Logo. You must immediately suspend any advertisements and any web content promoting products that use the Compatibility Logo. If there are any costs associated with any of this, the responsibility for paying them is exclusively yours.
If we terminate the License for any reason other than breach, you may no longer make any new products using the Compatibility Logo, but you may continue to sell existing physical products that were compliant under this License as long as you have inventory. If you sell out of a compliant product, you must remove the Compatibility Logo from future print runs. In the case of products that do not have physical inventory, such as PDFs, you must stop selling them within 30 days of termination, but if you remove the Compatibility Logo from them, you may start selling them again.
Note that if we terminate this License, and you publish products that make use of our copyrighted content available under the OGL, you still have to attribute it to d20pfsrd.com Publishing Inc., as required by the OGL.
If you fail to comply with your post-termination obligations, you agree that any resulting dispute will be resolved in courts located in King County, Washington, and you agree to be subject to the jurisdiction of such courts. You agree that such courts will be mutually directed to award the prevailing party in any dispute its legal fees and court costs in addition to any other appropriate monetary or injunctive relief such court deems appropriate.

For new products, you may only use the current version of the License.
We may update the Exhibits at any time; if we do, we will send notice to the contact information you supplied in your registration. You must always use the most recent version of each Exhibit. The Exhibits are incorporated within the terms of this License by this reference.
We may update the Compatibility Logo and the text required at any time; if we do, we will send notice to the contact information you supplied in your registration. You agree to use good faith efforts to stop using old Compatibility Logos and Text and start using the updated Compatibility Logo and Text for new products. You may continue to sell items made with the old Compatibility Logos or Text as long as you continue to comply with the terms of this License. If you reprint any products that were originally published using old Compatibility Logos or Text, we request, but do not require, that you use the new Compatibility Logo and Text.
