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.

Water’s nearly incompressible nature makes the liquid a useful component in starship cushioning and safety systems, and certain undines are similarly incompressible. An undine with this trait gains DR 5/piercing or slashing.
This replaces an undine’s spell-like ability.

Warp Element

Source Starfinder #46: The Perfect Storm pg. 53
When a planar scion with this trait makes an attack or casts a spell that would deal acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic damage, they can instead choose to match half of that damage to the element of their heritage (fire for ifrits, acid for oreads, electricity for sylphs, or cold for undines).
This replaces each planar scion’s elemental affinity.
