Chapter 13: Pathfinder Legacy / Monster Conversion

Gear and Treasure

Source Starfinder Core Rulebook pg. 502
Most of the humanoid monsters in the Pathfinder RPG wield weapons and wear armor that are appropriate to that game’s fantasy setting, and much of it is magic. While this might fit in certain Starfinder adventures (such as traveling to a planet where technology hasn’t advanced very far or a planet that simply benefits from a high concentration of magic), you might want to consider giving a converted monster some cool futuristic gadgets and weapons. Just remember to stick with items of a level that is close to the monster’s CR!

The type of treasure the PCs receive after defeating a converted monster should be commensurate with the guidelines presented on page 391. However, any treasure that grants a bonus to attack rolls or AC (such as the magic items used by a monster) should not be part of that treasure. You will need to convert such items into similar magic items from Chapter 7 before the PCs get ahold of them.
