StarCraft Update 8/23/2019


A big series of updates were pushed out today to go alongside Supplement 5! Check it out!

Resources

The Advanced Race Guide and Game Master's Screen are no longer available. They are both out of date and no longer necessary.

Protoss

*Major* Protoss players and enemies are now high threat entities. This means player protoss count as two characters for splitting experience. Therefore, a party of 2 terrans and 2 protoss would split experience 6 ways. In the meantime, fighting 3 zealots in an encounter would be worth 6 encounter points instead of 3. Protoss are quite powerful, between their shields and their psionics, should not be the same threat level as other races.

*Major* Almost every protoss item, across all the supplements, has had its honor costs changed. For the most part, the costs have gone 25-70%.

-Substantial Changes to the Legion-of-One renowned class

-You can now only use up to 50 nanobots at a time for Sacrifical Pulse and Nanobot Onslaught

-Sacrificial pulse has half the area (1 per 10 nanobots) and deals 2 EMP damage per nanobot.

-The Destroyer servitor has had its damage reduced from 40 to 25.

Talents

-Cleaned up a lot of discrepancies with talents and other issues in the Core Rulebook. Thanks to Zandmar with his help in that!

-The Excellent Spirits talent has been added back into the game, in the Core Rulebook. The talent gives +1 starting morale level and +1 morale bonus.

-The Universal Knowledge talent now gives +4 to assisted skill checks of all kinds, instead of +2

-Clarified that a melee charge with the Mighty Blow talent should give +5 damage base

Terrans

-The Commodore master specialization now gives temporary hit points equal to the vehicle’s fortitude, instead of the character’s attributes

-Prodigy master specialization now specifies that Technological Savant reduces the time to take to perform a medicine or computer check that takes longer than 1 full-round action.

-Power Man master specialization now gives advantage with melee attacks

-Raging Psychic Spectre Drawback no longer causes rolls on the overload table, instead deals 8xPL psionic damage to the caster

-By popular demand, the Predator robot from the Wings of Liberty campaign has been added to the Advanced Terran Training Manual.

-Tier 3 Bio-Mechanical Nanites use up a healing threshold every round that they cure crippling wounds.

-In Explorer’s Guide to the Sector, there is now the Concealable item trait in the listings. The Shadowguard Armor gains the Concealable trait.

Psionics

Numerous Changes to powers in Supplement 3, both Energy and Temporal powers:

-Psionic Bolt: +5 damage, +2 accuracy

-Improved Psionic Bolt: +5 damage, +1 energy fatigue

-Life Drain is -3 damage instead
