I'm looking forward to playing a different flavoured Pathfinder. Hopefully my Pathfinder Society group will be happy to alternate between PFS and Starfinder Society (?)

I've always considered Shadowrun sci-fantasy, perhaps almost urban-fantasy, actually.

Dresden files is urban fantasy, I haven't read the books but I liked the TV show. Basically a magician PI.

Warehouse 13 is pretty much urban fantasy, I think, enjoyed that show as well.

Ultimately I think things from folklore really have no place in science fiction.

Again, there was some guy who posted here circa 2003, maybe a year or two earlier or later, about how he took a group of Traveller PC's through a Middle Earth like setting. And things were fine until the group ran out of ammo. I think that kind of dynamic is interesting as a one off. Otherwise it doesn't do it for me.

I'll check out the rules and background, but I'm getting Gammaworld like vibes from it.

Whatever. To each his own.

That line sums up Starfinder for me as well.
