What's that looming heavy on the horizon like an ominous thundercloud? Why, it's none other than the sixth and final adventure of the Starfinder Adventure Path: Empire of Bones by Owen K.C. Stephens! Though your heroes have tangled with agents of the Corpse Fleet in past volumes, this particular adventure has more undead than you can shake a stick at!

The Empire of Bones of the title is a massive ultranought flagship of the Corpse Fleet larger than some cities. It leads an armada of other hostile vessels, intent on seizing control of the ancient alien superweapon known as the Stellar Degenerator. Which would certainly mean the death of every living thing in the Pact Worlds system and possibly beyond. No pressure! Your characters have survived up this point, and are probably more than up to the task of infiltrating the Empire of Bones and taking over the bridge, right? You will only have to face bone troopers, corpsefolk, and ghouls, as well as Starfinder versions of baykoks, kurobozus, mohrgs, and pale strangers. Oh, and did I forget to mention the gatecrasher, a horrific blend of powered armor and necromancy-infused flesh?

Even with a few surprises along the way, this adventure is sure to be a walk in the park—no, not park. Graveyard. A walk in the graveyard. Enjoy and good luck!

It is one of the best volumes as far as i can say from merely flipping through it.

Only the maps could have been more evocative. *gravtraincough* ;-)

Will the Sivvs civilization be detailed at a later date? Also, I agree about the maps. Overall, though, I was impressed with the ending.

I'm actually with you on that. This is one of the reasons I hammered map skills so much when I was hosting RPG Superstar. A good map does fine, and I think we got good maps. But an awesome map can elevate an adventure, and I know from experience how hard it can be to design awesome maps.


Where is a Iomedaean Cathedralship when you need one?

That's just a semi-solid holoprojection coming from the real Iomedaean Cathedralship behind your corpsecruiser. Also, SPOILER ALERT: it's locked it's fusion guns on you. :P
