Redshirts: Adventures in Absurdity (Vol. 1) is a Starfinder compatible Adventure Path, guaranteed to have your PCs laughing hysterically from one end of the galaxy to the other.

 Critics have called it "The Office meets space." 

Unlike most RPGs which set up the PCs to achieve great heroic victories over threats to the very existence of the world, Redshirts is more a game of survival, as in can the PCs survive the ridiculous orders of the command crew. Redshirts is perfect for players wishing to emulate the tone of comedic Space-Opera settings such as Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Futurama, or Spaceballs. It parodies and builds upon popular Sci-fi settings and tropes, while building its own niche. 

Redshirts plays like a combination of a Role-playing game and an improv comedy routine (always say "yes"), as the PCs run the crew's most dangerous errands. Vol. 1 encompasses the first three "missions" and takes the PCs from level 1 to level 3.

Redshirts: Adventures in Absurdity adds 8 new playable races, and dozens on original NPCS and monsters to kill your players with over and over again. Have fun!

Are vols 2 and 3 still in development or has this series been abandoned?

I was just searching, and it appears the author ghosted on a Kickstarter for over $7000 to make vol.2 so I'd assume it's dead

We're working on adding them directly to the PDF in the next two weeks or so.

Here’s the obligatory...”Will this be Print on Demand?” question. Insta-buy if so.

Thanks for your consideration. Some folks have eyes that just can’t do electronic copies.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
