Chapter 13: Pathfinder Legacy / General Conversion

Skill Names

Source Starfinder Core Rulebook pg. 500
Pathfinder RPG skills that have the same names as Starfinder skills don’t need to be converted (though you should use the Starfinder rules for those skills, of course). To convert a skill that isn’t found in Starfinder, replace mentions of that Pathfinder RPG skill with the Starfinder skill indicated in the right column of the table below. If the entry has a dash, you can simply assume that the PCs succeed at all skill checks of that type.
