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. Sunshine wasted no time, taking advantage of the eyebot's flailing tentacles to distract the monster, and pop out from behind the creature with a well-place laser shot, hitting the beast in a sensitive spot and throwing off its aim.
  3. "What kind of blue, bloody, pus-spewing hell that that thing come from?" Jexa exclaimed. Jexa reached over toward Echo's rifle, never taking her eyes off of the gigantic creature, with glowing arcane symbols looking more like circuits appearing around her hand and a small cloud of nanites flowing from her sleeve, swarming around and into the weapon, each one attaching itself to the capacitor, preparing to add their own power to that drawn from the cell for the next shot, only to fall away and crumble into a fine, metallic dust when eventually discharged. "Light it up." she encouraged Echo.

    "That's right! Die you lump of filth!" Gorunta tore into the thing, sword and talons and oh this was going to be a gruesome bloodbath that would get all over Evana's clothing.

    Eye-bot scoots over and it's arms extended plugging into a panel that slides open. The beams and bolts strike the giant eye which opens it's great maw and makes a wailing hiss, it's tentacle thrashing about.
  6. Echo blinked on seeing the massive creature there, and solemnly got out her bigger gun, the laser rifle slung over her back. "Hey, eyebot. If you can open up the hangar and let my buddy in there join us, I'd be MUCH OBLIGED!" She charged up the weapon with her rig, and took aim, letting a line of superheated air streak between her weapon and the gooball!
  7. Sunshine, to her credit, didn't hesitate for long - she pulled out her laser pistol, flipping it in the air, then leaping up to catch it and firing off a carefully placed shot.
  8. "That thing is as big as our damned ship!" Jordayn gulped, stretching down that he could stand upright and peering into the massive chamber from the middle of the pack. "Anyone able to make a guess if bringing down the momma testicle will bring down all the baby testicles?" The half-elf priest grimaced - the thing was truly intimidating and disgusting and he didn't think it was 'natural' to the station, as it were, but rather was some manner of parasite. That would do, especially if it/they started infesting/infecting their ship while it was under automated control. "I propose we find out, since I don't fancy leaving it behind, not after how helpful this little eye-bot has been, or what its... offspring might do to us or the ship." He glanced at his Arc Pistol, then holstered it for the moment. It wouldn't be the most effective against this creature. Instead, he murmured another prayer, and from his hand flew a ball of active, darting yellow-orange light to harass and harry the Brobdingnagian Space Testicle.

    The intrepid crew of the Solanya wound their way through the labyrinthine service corridors with an occasional beep or whistle from the eye-bot when directing them at cross corridors and intersections. After what seemed like hours but was in actuality only minutes they can to another large service hatch. The eye-bot scuttled forward and extended it's appendages again and with more clicks and whirs the hatch irises open revealing a huge chamber nearly a kilometer across. it hummed with energy and pulsed with electric life. Our Heroes found themselves staring at the still beating heart of the station. They had found the Engine room. And there sitting right on top of the main engine was the largest space-ball yet!
  10. Echo wasted no time getting over to the service hatch, glancing back over her shoulder the whole way. "If they're installing these things on our ship, Imma blow up the whole place. Just...you know...FYI." Then she crawled in after Evana. Hard to say if it was 'safe' or not, but it was at least nominally away from the raging mouth-monsters, so that made it safe 'enough.'
  11. Jexa looked down the dark service tunnel and gestured with a hand, apparently summoning small bits of tech from the darkness as a thin wisp of a metallic cloud traced a line through the air from here sleeve to the bit and surrounded them, which was then surrounded by wisps of nanites as they worked on the tech, modifying and adapting them. S small spark arced from her fingertip to one of the bits and then then bounced between the rest, causing each one to reveal their purpose as they illuminated with the intensity of small flashlights hovering in the air. She then flung her hand out in an almost dismissive gesture, sending the lights zooming together down the service tunnel ahead of Evana and the others. "That should help." she said, more to herself than anybody else as she watched the lights illuminate their way. Jexa turned to the eyebot and smiled. "Thanks little guy. I hope the leg is feeling better." she said as she slipped into the proffered escaped route.
  12. "S'cusemethankyou," Evana said hastily as she weaseled way around the service bot. Her sidearm remained in her hand while she clicked on the a flashlight with her thumb and held it at eye level illuminating the darkened corridor beyond. "Oh, someone is going to pay dearly for my dry cleaning..." the icy haired diva mumbled as she built up the nerve to to follow the corridor. At this point anything was batter than... whatever those things were. With a deep breath, that was meant to bolster confidence but failed on all levels, she pressed on.

    The eyebot looked at echo then shaking it's repaired leg dashed off to a section of the wall. Back down the corridor the sounds of multiple space-balls grew louder, Yseult made arcane gestures and a small purple eye appeared and zoomed off down the corridor. "We should hurry they are close and there are... a lot of them." She said. Meanwhile the eyebot had extended several small appendages into some hidden sockets and with a screech as parts that hadn't operated in years began to move a small hatch rotated open revealing a darkened small service tunnel.
  14. Echo checked the charge on her pistol and scowled as she swapped in her spare cell. "Yeah, unless you can open the hangar back up, I think getting outta here is the way to go." She gestured at the eyebot. "Get us somewhere we're not getting eaten by living meatballs...the rest can wait!"
  15. Gorunta Hemok

    IC: Starfinder Episode 02 - INTERMEZZO

    "Run?!" Gorunta bellowed, shaking the blood and gore off him. "You-" He paused. All right, that sounded like a lot of space-balls. "All right, where is this shelter, bot?"
  16. "We can take cover, or we can run," Evana said plainly to everyone, one eye on the corridor as she slid a fresh mag into her gun. "Either way, people, let's go, stop standing around and wake the hell up." She scanned the area, looking for probable escape routes. "This is just bloody wonderful," she fumed. She glared at Sunshine. "For the record, this is your fault. No more reading books or eating while flying the ship."
  17. "Geez - " Sunshine crouched down behind something, preparing to run or for ambush. "Hey, iPod, can you tell them we're not here to hurt anything?" She looked at the dead creature she'd plugged through the brain, and amended, "Anything that doesn't try and hurt us first?"
  18. STARFINDER GM

    IC: Starfinder Episode 02 - INTERMEZZO

    The Eye-bot wheezed and beeped the in a scratchy with static voice spoke in common "Danger, Danger, Danger Find Shelter Immediately!" Down the corridor the space-balls had come, could be heard a blood chilling wail and something that sounded like loud Thwumps! followed by wet splats and the unmistakable sounds of more space-balls rolling in their direction!
  19. Sunshine blinked big rodentlike eyes at the result of her shot. "Okay," she says as she gathers up her dropped weapon and checks the minor injury she took. "I take back some of the bad things I've said about witchcraft."
  20. STARFINDER GM

    IC: Starfinder Episode 02 - INTERMEZZO

    Spinning and flipping the little Ysoki made a once in a lifetime shot, her beam sizzling right into the monsters mouth and burning through the and out the back. The thing shuddered and it's tentacles drooped and it stilled in sudden death. Not so the monster Gurunta was gutting. It's tentacles thrashes and it wailed as grayish green blood sprayed as the Vesk sawed the thing virtually in half. It too was dead. The party slowly came out from cover and even the eye-bot was peering around the counter where Etch had it cornered.
  21. Gorunta Hemok

    IC: Starfinder Episode 02 - INTERMEZZO

    Gorunta's feral grin became wider as he caught one of the flailing tentacles and brutally yanked it to the side. The monster ball's wail was premature. It really had to scream when the vesk thrust his sword into its body up to the hilt, and began to yank the blade downward, ripping it open.
  22. Sunshine rolled into a ball and sprang upright, deciding to take the chance that the tentacle monster would attack her - and in turn, hoping it'd overextend itself.
  23. She slid up from her place behind cover, holding her pistol at the ready as she zeroed in on one of the creatures. A thin pinkish-purple visor slid over her field of vision and began sending her relevant tactical information. She held still, calculating the perfect moment to squeeze the trigger. "C'mon you disgusting bastard..."
  24. Satisfied for the moment with Yseult's dog's herding of the 'eye-bot', Jexa assessed the situation. Best to completely remove an enemy from the fight. Besides, Gorunta could handle himself, she figured. With a swift motion, Jexa brought up her empty hand and then waved her other hand over, leaving her arc pistol in hand at it passed, and immediately pulled the trigger, sending a ball of barely tamed lightning streaking through the air to hit the beast, causing and electrical-magical discharge to arc all over its spheroid body.
  25. One of the tentacle monsters seemed to be heavily injured, but there was at least another one, and Sunshine was being battered about. And who knew what else might be on this damnable space station. Jordayn considered a moment longer, then grunted and twisted away from aiming at the creature and broke from cover to close the distance with the ysoki pilot. A prayer to Arshea on his lips, Jordayn linked his life-force with that of Sunshine, to take upon himself a portion of any grievous pain and wounds Sunshine might suffer.
