You’ve probably heard by now that Paizo is working on a science-fantasy version of Pathfinder they’re calling Starfinder. It’s not out until August 2017, so I haven’t been paying too much attention to the game so far, not that there’s a lot information available just yet.
However, there was an interesting 6-page interview at gameinformer about Starfinder. What caught my eye is that Paizo says they’re trying to streamline the rules. Specifically mentioned in the interview are the lessons learned from Pathfinder Beginner Box!
Of course, at this point we have no idea just how much “streamlining” is happening, or what form it takes. For all I know, Paizo’s idea of streamlining may actually make the game more crunchy and complex. But for now I’m cautiously optimistic that Starfinder may be closer to Beginner Box than PF Core.
Of course, nothing says somebody can’t make a Starfinder Beginner Box. Just sayin’….
