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.

Syngnathrixes are a species of monstrous humanoids with an arcane component to their genetic code that expresses itself in most individuals as an affinity for magic. Syngnathrixes are amphibious, and most have two or three finned prehensile tails. With augmentation and practice, they can walk on land like other bipeds, allowing them to live away from water in times of need. Syngnathrixes use coral harvested from their home world to ornament and augment their bodies.

They can cast that spell as a spell-like ability once per day for every 4 character levels they have. The caster level for this spell is equal to the syngnathrix’s level. Once chosen, this spell cannot be changed.
