At long last, I can finally say that the Core Rulebook is done. Today’s update gives you all of the systems and data necessary to support the entire Starfinder Core Rulebook, including a few new areas:
  • Rules: The largest new section is the "Rules" area. Historically, the Archives has focused on the "Mechanics" of the game - things that repeat throughout books, have a single set of rules to guide them, etc. For example, I’ve tracked Feats, but never really gave you the rules on how Feats themselves work. I tracked every Spell made, but not the rules on how Magic worked.

    Now you get both. The Rules section will contain all of the rules that tell you how to use these different mechanics. It will focus primarily on all of the data from the main RPG line, but any significant new rules from other books will find its way there as well.
  • Afflictions: Curses, Diseases, Drugs, and Poisons all can be found in the new Afflictions section of the website.
  • Traps: I’ve updated the Equipment section, adding a new Trap menu item to show off all the different Traps that GMs can throw against their players.
Now, though I’m done entering the data necessary to support the Core Rulebook, that doesn’t mean I’m finished. The Alien Archive is the next big addition, which will bring with it a new section for Aliens and all of the rules needed to support them. Starfinder #1-6 will follow after that.

Beyond those two books, there’s still a lot of areas to improve in the existing site structure - more hyperlinking is a big one. Thanks for stopping by and keep checking back for more updates!

The Starship section is now online! With that complete, the Core Rulebook is nearing full completion. Work on the Alien Archives has already begun and I hope to share progress on that with you soon!

The Sources page is complete, now listing all the areas shown on the site thus far. Enjoy the long list of mechanics from the Core Rulebook thus far.

The Vehicles section is now live, complete with the (Terrestrial) Vehicles section from the Core book (I added the clarifier as I’m considering Starships a vehicle too). Starships aren’t up quite yet I’m afraid, but they’re coming next. You will also find that there is a lot more rules content being added then ever before, seen here in the Vehicle rules section.

Also, thanks to everyone who’s reached out to be so far about aiding with a search engine! I have enough conversations going now that I think we’ll get something arranged, and hopefully a new and improved search will be coming soon!

Hi everyone - I’ve wanted to improve on the Search engine for the Archives for quite some time, and have decided that it may be time to reach out for some aid. As I’ve said in the past, I’m a self-learner when it comes to all things web design and programming and the murky waters of Search Indexing are very deep indeed.

If you are a web developer and think you have what it takes to put together a useful search for the Archives (would need to be proficient in asp.net/C# and SQL database structure) then please, send me an email! You can reach me at nethys@archivesofnethys.com - let me know your background (especially experience related to search engines) and rate/cost. We can go over more about what I’m looking for then.

Thanks for reading!
