Chapter 13: Pathfinder Legacy / Character Conversion

Class Skills and Skill Ranks per Level

Source Starfinder Core Rulebook pg. 504
A Pathfinder RPG character’s list of class skills will necessarily be shorter when converted to Starfinder. Use the guidelines for skill conversions (see page 500) to determine a converted class’s appropriate class skills.

Find the converted class’s number of skill ranks per level on the chart below to determine the new number of skill ranks that class should receive at each level. Of course, you can decide to give the converted class fewer skill ranks if you wish, but you shouldn’t give that class more.
