Full Description

Heroes for Hire is a science fiction/fantasy game using the new Starfinder RPG rules from Paizo Publishing. Set in a slightly modified version of the core games published setting it is a sci-fi/fantasy romp across the galaxy full of action, adventure, romance, humor and maybe some dancing.

Inspired by space movies like Guardians of the Galaxy, Ice Pirates, Battle beyond the Stars and a plethora of grade b space movies from the 1980's (most available on you tube) it follows a band of down on their luck crew of a crazy starship trying to make a living without selling out to the Galactic Man or falling victim to the numerous intergalactic crime lords and their nefarious schemes all while desperately trying not to become the next meal of the hordes of the insect like Swarm bent on devouring the galaxy.

This game will have lot's of action, lasers, nukes, magic, more lasers, rock and roll, zombies, androids, huge space battles, even more lasers this time with different colors, pissed off space gods, pizza, sexy space witches, horrible alien bugs to kill by the score...did I mention the lasers...

  1. What's new in this game
  2. "Maybe we can make a friend here..." Jexa thought aloud as she watched the fleeing eye-bot while her companions battled the others... things. Jexa held up her hand, pointing at the eye-bot, and twin, sparkling metallic clouds swirled down her arm, crisscrossing like the dual snakes of the caduceus. She then turned her hand around, palm up and opened with her fingers together, and gestured toward the construct, sending the clouds of nanites racing after the partially crippled eye-bot. The sparkling, metallic clouds caught the eye-bot and then swirled around its damage leg. The cloud sparkled brighter and with other colors as the tiny machines surrounded and even entered the limb through a myriad of openings, examining the damage before swiftly repairing it in a near instant. "I hope that wasn't a mistake..." she continued to think aloud as she extended her Arc Pistol into her hand from the quickdraw sheath.

    The Plasma blast caught the closest Ball of Tentacles and burned clean through on as that tentacle fell to the ground the bolt scored a graze across the seconds balls body leaving a smoking furrow before hitting the wall where it continued to burn. The ball that had batted Gorunta aside suddenly lunged forward it's maw wide and the only thing that save the Vesk was his blade which he jammed sideways into the biting jaws with a clang. The other ball lashed out trying to hit Sunshine but the small Ysoki bounced all around and all the balls tentacles did was smash a couple of kiosks scattering goods and all across the way and make a heavy dent in a barrier gate for one of the shops.
  4. "I don't wanna keep those ones! Those ones are bad!" Sunshine ran between cover, sliding along the floor and lining up a plasma pistol shot in an attempt to hit both of the Ugly Balls.

    "See!" Gorunta's voice boomed, "This is why we listen to the dog!" His sword flashed forward as he charged the testi-gina-cle on the right... which caught him with a well-timed swipe of the tentacles and yanked him aside with a quick toss. The vesk's frustrated growl echoed off the walls.

  16. Evana's eyes were wide in abject horror and confusion as the testi-gina-cle mouth-balls unfurled. "Uh... guys! This, is the shooting part."

    The small bot immediately started to backtrack... click, klack, click, click... then stopped it's eyeball containing sphere spun away from the crew of the Solenya, showing its metal rear, then it started to move back towards the heroes rapidly it's eye swiveling back to face them. Even though there is no determinable difference in how it looked a moment ago, the impression of fear is written in that red rimmed eye. And a moment later the Heroes for Hire know why. Two giant Balls come rolling around the corner as the robot runs towards the crew. the balls slide to a stop and multiple tentacles unwrap from around the bumpy round bodies two of which appear to be tipped with flattened ends like blades. the center of the monstrosities is a yawning toothed maw which emits a piercing shriek.
  18. "Oh my goodness..." whispered the ysoki, her eyes widening. "... it's adorable. Sure we can't keep it?"
  19. Arc pistol readied in hand and a mystic prayer readied on the lips, Jordayn ducked down behind the service counter, peeking around the edge to see what came. His eyes widened at the sight that came into view. He had seen a lot of strange things in his relatively short life, but this certainly ranked up there with the strangest. He wasn't sure who was more surprised, them or the... eye-spider. He was a healer as well as a priest, a doctor of the flesh and the soul. He felt a little bad for the thing. It was mostly hardware, but it moved and reacted as something that wasn't just following programing. Maybe Jexa or Echo could fix its leg, a sign of goodwill or an exchange for services rendered. Jordayn kept half an eye on the eye-spider as Evana and Echo, er, spoke, with it, while looking and listening for any of its friends.
  20. "Oh no," Echo said, shaking her head. "No, nope, uh uh, no way. You are NOT putting huge gross eyeballs all over my ship!" She pointed at the weird little robot. "We need...information. What procedures are going to be done to our ship, what if anything will it cost, where are we...all of this. There must be some kind of orientation package or customer service AI or something. How do we access it?"
  21. This was new. "Uh, hi." Despite her grace and poise, her flair for diplomacy and downright lying... that was the best she could up with as the sheer absurdity of what she was looking at, outpaced her brain.

    The Crew took their places as the clickety-Klacks got closer, Echo Gorunta followed a step behind Evana as they moved toward the corner and waited, Jexa, Jordayn, and Sunshine readied themselves in case things went down the gravity well. Around the corner came a sight none of them truly expected and obviously it was just as surprised by them. Standing a little under 1/2 a meter in height the tiny robot came around the corner, it was a sphere of brass colored metal pitted and scarred from age and use, held aloft by four sharp pointed legs one of which which was damaged and bent at an odd angle. This damaged leg accounted for the Klack announce the clicks of it's walk. When it came around the corner and was in full view of Evana and Company it froze, suddenly it lowered itself closer to the ground. The sphere turned rapidly right then left, then it split and a portion slid back revealing what looked like a red bloodshot organic eyeball.
  23. "Iomdedae's ass cheeks," Evana cut in. "Can we get our bearings before we start hacking their networks and making a damn mess of the place? Echo, Gorunta, you're with me. We'll greet the thing, everyone else go find a shady spot, and don't shoot unless you have too."
  24. "Oh, I'll say hello," volunteers Echo. "I'll even throw in a 'take me to your leader,' for free. She pulled up a holographic display over her right arm as she activated her engineering rig. "It's gotta be a robot of some kind. If it's networked in, might be able to use it." She turned to face the clacky-clack noise, waiting to see what exactly was heading their way.
  25. Sunshine crouched, readying one of the newer plasma-line pistols that were the spoils of their last job. "How about we compromise - they know we're here, so how about someone say hello and we get their back covered if they don't say hello back?"

    "And yet, everyone has vanished." Gorunta harshly whispered back to the half-elf. "Also, the dog doesn't like it, and considering our past job, I'm inclined to listen to the dog." On the bright side, Gorunta noted, this place, still so fully stocked on all locales, would make excellent looting for the crew. And why should there be any cause for objection, given the place was lost in the Drift and nobody who could justifiably object? That just left the click-clacking thing and whatever caused the disappearances, on the off-chance the two did not mean the same thing.
