Starforce Knights (Starfinder Roleplaying Game)
Posted by Owen K.C. Stephens
Don’t ask me what movie I am going to see, just enjoy my thoughts on an alternate set of class features to turn solarians into Starforce Knights!
A Starforce Knight must select solar weapon as his solar manifestation. This weapon always appears as a sword.
A Starforce Knight does not receive the black hole or supernova stellar revelations at first level. Instead, the Starforce Knight gains the following revelations at 1st level
Force Block (Su)(Graviton)
When you are graviton attuned or fully attuned, and you are wielding your stellar weapon, are wearing light armor or no armor, and able to take actions, you constantly block attacks made against you. You add your Charisma bonus to your AC against ranged attacks against you if they target only you (this does not apply to lines, blasts, or other attacks that affect multiple creatures), and gain a +1 bonus to AC against any other attacks.
When you are photon attuned or fully attuned, you add your charisma bonus to damage done with your stellar weapon in addition to your Strength bonus. Additionally, you may choose to use your Charisma bonus in place of your Strength bonus for attack rolls with your stellar weapon.
A Starforce Knight does not take penalties for having disproportionate revelations. However, they must follow the code of their knightly order. If a Starforce Knight violates this code, they take the penalties normal solarians take for having disproportionate revelations until the beginning of their next character level. Each order is normally represented by having stellar weapons of a unified color (such as blue, green, red, or white). Two sample codes are presented below.
Knights of the Blue Star: Knights of the Blue Star are defenders of the downtrodden and respect life in all forms. They do not use their stellar revelations other than Starsaber to make attacks against or harm living creatures.
Knights of the Red Star: Knights of the Red Star are dedicated to looking after themselves and establishing their power over others. If a Knight of the Red Star is attacked by a creature, it must attack, harm, or cause penalties for that attacker within 24 hours.
