Dead Suns 012: Who Let the Dogs Out?

The team boards the Arceon and gets a rude welcome from the new inhabitants, a pack of what can loosely be described as space dogs. Rusty’s ability to stay out of the thick of the fight finally runs out, and the team has their first encounter with Starfinder’s new disease system. That’s right… space rabies!

Also this week, GM Stephen discusses how to best prepare for large encounters with multiple creatures with unique abilities.

Plus this week we announce the start of a brand new contest! And don’t forget to become a supporter of the podcast at our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/rollforcombat where you can help us while unlocking fun exclusive rewards for yourself!

Dead Suns 011: Spaceship!

The boys board the Hippocampus and leave the safety of Absalom Station for open space. At first, the biggest danger confronting the team is Rusty’s heavy-handed leadership style might cause a mutiny. But then, actual danger appears in the form of a one-man enemy fighter. Lock phasers on target, charge techno-babble emitters – it’s time to kick the tires on Starfinder’s spaceship combat!

Join the Roll For Combat crew as they stumble their way through life and death with a Starfinder starship combat tutorial. Will they live, die, or will Rusty get thrown out an airlock? Find out this week!

Also this week, GM Stephen discusses how far one should “dumb down” powerful bad guys – should every combat be an epic life and death battle, or can some of them just be a simple shootout?

Plus, this is the week we announce the grand prize winners for the $1000 “Big Podcast Launch Giveaway”! Listen to find out if you won… and even if you didn’t we’ll have a brand new contest starting next week!

Dead Suns 010: Quid Pro Cronut

On the heels of accepting the job investigating the Acreon, both Astral Extractions and the Hardscrabble Collective reach out to the team to make their cases. Mo proves to be surprisingly receptive to a tasty donut and a compelling PowerPoint presentation, while a hot cup of coffee brings out Rusty’s fondness for the working man. Meanwhile, Tuttle never met a well-worded contract he didn’t like, and Hirogi looks for an opportunity to squeeze a few extra credits out of the situation.

We also continue our interview with Erik Mona, author, editor, and Publisher of Paizo Inc., creators of the Pathfinder and Starfinder Roleplaying Games. In part two of our interview, we discuss Erik’s time as editor-in-chief of Dragon and Dungeon magazines, Erik’s best prison stories, and the history behind creating the greatest adventure path of all time… The Age of Worms!

Also this week, GM Stephen discusses the term “bleeding encounters” and what does it mean? (It turns out most people didn’t seem to know the meaning of the term … sorry about that.)

Dead Suns 009: Dead Man’s Party

ATTENTION NEW LISTENERS: We here at Roll For Combat recognize that jumping into an existing podcast can be a daunting task, especially one like this that involves an unfolding story. To help newer listeners out, we’ve prepared a brief synopsis at the start of this Episode that will catch you up to the story so far. Give it a listen, and you’ll be ready to join us, all caught up ready to jump right into the podcast. Enjoy the show!

After wrapping up business with the Downside Kings, the boys enjoy a little rest, relaxation, the fruits of their labors – full membership in the Starfinder Society, leveling, and shopping. Soon after, a new lead emerges from an unexpected source – an undead ambassador to Absalom Station offers the group work as investigators in the mediation between Astral Extractions and the Hardscrabble Collective. Both sides want the Acreon and the Drift Rock, and our team must sort out this mess. All that’s required is a trip to a quarantined ship where everyone died….

We also have a special guest join us on this episode. Erik Mona, author, editor, and currently serving as Publisher of Paizo Inc., creators of the Pathfinder and Starfinder Roleplaying Games, joins us on the show. In part 1 of our interview, we discuss the decision behind the creation of Starfinder, the future of Starfinder, and unleash gaming stories from his past.

Dead Suns 008: Payin’ The Cost To Beat The Boss

The Downside Kings’ cannon fodder has been disposed of, setting the stage for the first real boss battle of the campaign. With Mo and Hirogi already dinged up from the previous fights, the tag-team of Hatchbuster and Ferani presents a formidable challenge for the team. Vesk against vesk! Grenade-throwing coward against grenade-throwing coward! Rusty actually fires his weapon! Will the RFC team walk away in one piece? You’ll just have to listen to find out.

Also this week, GM Stephen discusses how he organizes his notes and manages inventory for all PCs.

Dead Suns 007: Downsized Kings

The battle against the Downside Kings heats up as both the bouncers guarding the door and the card-players in the back join the fray. Hirogi continues to be the least stealthy Operative in the universe, grenades become the team’s new best friends, and we shed a tear for a table that left this world too soon.

This week, GM Stephen explains how to handle rule mistakes when playing an RPG and how to not to be a killer GM.

Dead Suns 006: In Da Club

The Downside Kings strike back against our fearless adventurers through the power of overpriced bar drinks; Tuttle tries to stage an evacuation of the Fusion Queen, but succeeds only in starting a new dance craze; and bringing clubs to a gunfight proves to be a surprisingly effective strategy as combat breaks out.

Last week GM Stephen shared his favorite 1st level RPG adventures. This week Stephen discusses his least favorite 1st level RPG adventures (which will probably prove to be quite controversial). We also treat the listeners to “Roll For Combat Unplugged” as the gang discusses the finer points of combat in Starfinder.

Dead Suns 005: And A Side Order of Rat

The trip to Mama Fat’s proves to be worthwhile. The sci-fi snacks are decent enough, but the membership card found at Kreel’s apartment lets the team order off the special menu – a meeting with Jabaxa, the leader of the Level 21 Crew. Jabaxa points the team toward the Fusion Queen nightclub, where the leader of the Downside Kings waits.

Also this week, GM Stephen also explains why level 1 adventures are so tricky for GMs and PCs alike and discusses his top three favorite level 1 modules of all time.

Dead Suns 004: CSI: Absalom Station

A trip to Kreel’s apartment and further investigation reveal an intricate web involving Absalom’s street gangs as muscle for a miners’ labor dispute. Armed with new information, the crew sets off to find the lesser of two evils, the Level 21 Crew on … you guessed it … Level 21! Mo makes a new friend, and Tuttle learns a shocking lesson about using the key instead of hot-wiring things for fun.

Also this week, Stephen, Jason, and John review the Starfinder Alien Archive in detail.

Dead Suns 003: Cops, Cut-Throats, and Career Opportunities

Absalom’s Finest work a little “Good Cop, Emotionless Android Cop” against the boys, Tuttle engages in a little light invasion of a dead man’s privacy, and we learn about the biology of Starfinder – ysoki cheek pouches, lashunta antennae, and third-gender shirren. We also learn that time is money, and Mo is stingy with both.
