I recently got me the core rule book of Starfinder and I really love the setting and the rules.
I want to run a Starfinder game but I don't exactly know which books I need or where to start exactly. I've looked at the books in Paizo's web shop but I couldn't really find out which books are needed.
E.g. there are numerous Alien Archive books. I couldn't really find out if I only find some setting specific aliens in them or if I find more generic enemies like rabid dogs, thugs or the like. What I really like is the idea of traveling around in a starship and as far as I've seen I need several of the Alien Archive books in order to play in differing settings.
The Armory book seems to be a bit superfluous as most basic gear is described in the core rules.
I know there are the published adventures that hopefully provide everything that's needed but I think they are a bit pricey. Maybe I'll buy them later but for now I just want to play around a bit.
Primarily I lack enemy stats and descriptions but something like the D&D 5e Starter Box would be nice too. With some maps, miniatures and enemy descriptions. Maybe some loose guidelines.
Can someone with experience in Starfinder help me please :)
