As I prep for the next session, I'm curious how other GMs are looking at one aspect that will likely carry through a big portion of the AP.

** spoiler omitted **

Great question and I'm happy with the way it worked out. Since none of the party members are androids, I didn't get any pushback to this idea from players explaining that androids can just get another body and live on.

One of my players was an outlaw running with a group called The Jackals, inspired by Leverage and complete with a mastermind, a grifter, a crazy one, a techie (the PC), and the muscle (an android named Zee). The group fell apart due to an incident

Spoiler for books 2 and 3:
caused by a run-in with an Atrocity from the Cult of the Devourer
that caused the android to perish gruesomely. All they could get was the personality chip.

When the outlaw PC reunited with the grifter NPC, she swiftly loaded his personality chip into the bridge (which due to the luck of the dice and murder-hobo syndrome almost started a war within the party involving grenades on the bridge of their own ship...) and Zee's jovial voice boomed through the corridors.

Spoiler for Book 6:
Later his chip will either be loaded into The Jackals' replacement ship or loaded into a new android body. I'm working toward an epic moment where the Sunrise Maiden, the Anubis II (Jackal ship), and the Aquila, another PC's previous ship take on the final mission against the Empire of Bones. With Zee gone, the AI voice will go back to default so they can decide what to replace it with, and I'll probably suggest they change the name of the ship to make it their own.

Are the Kaukariki really supposed to have a +9 to hit, deal 1d4+2 damage (+1 more for poison application) and have a poison that can outright kill you if you fail enough times? Granted, the save is low but with how ridiculously accurate they are you are bound to have at least one poison rolling at a time, and that's probably right after the stampede and a warm up for the vracinea.

Seems reasonable to me, considering the party likely picked up an antitoxin each at Turhalu Point. But I'll find out this week how well it works out for my party.

This makes sense. There's also a section that calls the Temple of the Twelve area D instead of C, so I'm guessing things moved around close to the final draft.

Anyway - thanks for the clarification John! Really enjoyed reading this AP cover to cover when I should have been sleeping. Looking forward to running it for my group. Castrovel is such a cool setting.

I love the map for area B so much. However I'm confused how to handle the prior evening's fight with the Whiskered Renkroda, which suggests using this map at dusk the night before.

Presented with the fact that a giant threat is coming their way, the party will be drawn to the center of the area. Unless told otherwise, they will want to camp at the base of the Stargazer to rest up and explore the area in the morning. This ruins the spirit of the fight the following day that features a cool approach while under attack from two sources.

Am I missing something? What is the intended way to approach these two encounters sharing the same space?

Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this problem so I'll put it here: my payment method has been repeatedly declined with no listed reason for this month's subscription, but I've been charged twice: once last week and once this week. Is there a way that can be fixed?

I did have declined transactions and after calling my bank, it was an incorrect zip code. Fixed it and it went right through.

Maestro Vic here is an Envoy, and he's known as the conductor for the Castrovel Symphony Orchestra. He uses the same conducting performance as a tactic in battle. When a fight breaks out, Vic mocks his conducting movements in hopes that his foes will think he's actually directing his party members through magical means. This is an elaborate bluff so they think a huge strike is coming when he steps it up into big sweeping motions (Clever Feint).

If they do manage to close enough, they will find out the hard way that his conducting baton is actually a glamered taclash.

I need to look into augmentations to make it look even more like magical effects to complete the bluff.

Regarding the music in Fusion Queen, I am going with the Afterlife Club music from ME2 since that about sets the mood for everyone.

Afterlife Theme.

This is exactly what I did, and the players liked it. When they eventually enter the back room, be sure to lower the volume considerably as the door shuts.

I have the Paizo Advantage and I haven't seen the digital versions of the SFS scenarios in my downloads. I understand that Gen Con is underway, but I'm curious if I will be able to pour over these scenarios this weekend, or if I will need to wait until next week. Thanks!

Yes. They aren't releasing until August 17th. They should be in your downloads then (although being month one, it wouldn't be entirely surprising if the process takes a day or two.

Excellent. Thank you for confirming!

I am subscribed to the other 4 Starfinder subs. My books have shipped and my PDFs are available for download. I don't see any mention of this anywhere in my account so I want to confirm.

1. Will I eventually get these PDFs going forward without additional cost?
2. If so, will it include #1-01, #1-02, and #1-03 as well?
