The second installment of the Dead Suns Adventure Path, Temple of the Twelve, has hit the space lanes this month, bringing us one-third of the way through Starfinder's inaugural starfaring campaign. As a result, it seemed a good time to show off some more of the art from Dead Suns and hint at some of the friends, foes, and extraterrestrials the heroes might encounter during the Adventure Path.
In Starfinder Adventure Path #1: Incident at Absalom Station, the heroes acquire their very own starship, a Sanjaval Spaceflight Systems Vagabond named the Sunrise Maiden. But the ship is far more than just a stock light transport/freighter. The Sunrise Maiden will accompany the heroes on their adventures throughout the campaign, and as the player characters advance in level, they'll be able to improve and customize their vessel to truly make it their home among the stars.
Meanwhile, in Starfinder Adventure Path #2: Temple of the Twelve, the heroes head to the planet Castrovel, home to the lashuntas, elves, and formians, though the famed universities of Qabarat welcome scholars of other species as well. The Cult of the Devourer also makes an appearance in this volume, along with new Devourer-themed gear, spells, and the devastator mystic connection.
Among the creatures presented in this volume's Alien Archives are the woiokos, a humanoid species native to the planet Heicoron IV (itself detailed in Starfinder Adventure Path #1's "Codex of Worlds" article). Woiokos have two subspecies, the Floatborn, who live on the ocean's surface, and the Deepborn, who embraced their ancestral aquatic heritage to live underwater, and their entry includes racial traits for woioko player characters.
We'll end with a taste of Starfinder Adventure Path #3: Splintered Worlds, available in December, which sees our heroes visiting the scattered asteroids of the Diaspora and the dead world of Eox. The native inhabitants of Eox, the elebrians, turned to undeath long ago to survive a planetary cataclysm, but a handful of living elebrians survive, making an appearance in this volume's Alien Archives, along with racial traits for elebrian player characters.
Stay tuned! There's plenty more to come in the Dead Suns Adventure Path, from yaruks to skreelings to four-eyed bug-weasels, not to mention frailty cannons, necrografts, and much, much more!
