Using Options: Resource Ownership
  • Ownership of the Core Sources is not required for Character Option use in the Starfinder Society campaign, as long as rules are referenced from the official Starfinder Resource Document (sfrd).

    The Core Sources currently are: the Starfinder Core Rulebook and Starfinder Alien Archive.

  • Ownership of Adventures or Adventure Path volumes is not required to use Character Options originally published in Adventures or Adventure Paths in the Starfinder Society campaign, as long as rules are referenced from the official Starfinder Resource Document (sfrd). A player must still have a chronicle sheet from a Scenario to use any options in that Scenario.

  • To use an option from any source other than the Starfinder Core Rulebook, Starfinder Alien Archive, or Starfinder Adventures in Starfinder Society play, you must bring any one of the following to your game table:

    • A physical copy of the book you wish to use
    • A name-watermarked PDF copy of the book
    • Name-watermarked printouts of all relevant pages you wish to use from the PDF
    • Access to the rules you wish to use in the form of either electronic access to the Starfinder Reference Document ( or a photocopy of the relevant pages, along with proof of purchase, such as a receipt from a game store or a screenshot of your My Downloads page on

    The following do not satisfy this requirement:

    • A photocopy of a physical book with no proof of purchase
    • Printouts from electronic character builders such as Hero Lab
    • Content reproduced in other sources under the Open Gaming License (such as an online reference document or a homemade omnibus)

    In addition to the copy of the rules themselves, you must be able to provide a digital or physical copy of the below Character Options page for that source to show that the options you have selected for your character are legal for play.

  • Family members, significant others, or other members of the same household (such as roommates) can share resources if they are playing at the same table, rather than requiring a separate copy of the same book for each person. A group of friends that always plays together at the same table fulfills this requirement, as long as all the necessary materials for each character's options are present. Members playing at separate tables must each supply their own materials as normal.
