Starfinder – Skyjacks

Does your party have methods to overcome darkness? Do they post watches? How about ways to fly?

The skyjack (the unknown flying creatures from the Mandalorian) will soon teach them the errors of their ways. Throw an encounter with a pack of skyjacks at them and watch them scramble to address these shortcomings!

Skyjacks are nocturnal aerial predators notorious for carrying off prey. Typically hunting in packs, the skyjacks will target groups of prey, swooping silently in and carrying off some or all of their victims. Once in the air with a potential meal, the skyjack will not hesitate to drop it’s target if it proves too lively, and will happily eat prey that has died from the resulting fall.
