Pathfinder RPG (1st Edition) Starfinder RPG Pathfinder RPG (2nd Edition)


The Starfinder Roleplaying Game is about more than just meeting aliens—it’s also about playing alien characters. In Starfinder, the word “race” usually refers to an intelligent, selfaware species whose members can be considered characters rather than simple monsters. While not all races are appropriate for player characters, many of them are; any creature with a racial traits entry is a member of a potentially playable race, provided that your GM approves it.

Gripplis are small humanoids that resemble brightly colored tree frogs. Gripplis have had access to advanced technology for only a relatively short time, as interstellar trade has transformed their traditional hunting and gathering culture. Gripplis are still rare in the wider galaxy, but more and more of them are embracing modern technology, and they’re eager to explore the galaxy and meet its inhabitants.
