It Came From Outer Space!

What mysterious creatures dwell upon this bizarre extraterrestrial craft? Paizo Publishing’s latest Pathfinder Map Pack provides stunningly crafted 5" × 8" map tiles that can be positioned to form modular, customizable spaceship chambers—whether in an abandoned wreck that serves as an unusual dungeon, or a ravaged but still functional lifeboat depositing its crew on a strange new world. Inside, you’ll find 18 richly crafted map tiles, including:

  • Breached Airlock
  • Maintenance Catwalks
  • Crew Quarters
  • Medical Chamber
  • Plasma Generators
  • Damaged Hatch
  • Dissection Lab
  • Hangar Deck
  • Command Center

Game Masters shouldn’t waste their time sketching maps every time explorers venture into the unknown. With Pathfinder Map Pack: Starship Chambers, you’ll always be ready whenever the mysteries of the stars beckon!

Suitable for experienced GMs and novices alike, this product fits perfectly into any Game Master’s arsenal.

Wet, dry, and permanent markers erase from the tiles! With revised packaging that includes a reusable box for easy storage, Map Packs have never been so useful!

For a Particular Aesthetic, but Solid

****( )

Starship Chambers is an interesting Pathfinder Map Pack. Released back in 2014, long before Starfinder was a thing, the map pack was designed much more around an "ancient, crashed starship discovered by fantasy adventurers" aesthetic (influenced by the Iron Gods Pathfinder AP).

By this, I mean that the starship chambers are intentionally dimly lit, dirty, and full of wrecked equipment. The 18 5x8' tiles can be combined to make a starship bridge, crew quarters, med bay, cargo hold, and a couple of other chambers that I don't immediately recognize. The chambers have a lot of nice detail--rust stains, exposed wiring, debris on the ground, etc. I also appreciate how each chamber has connections to the corridor sections. In regards to the several corridor sections (the packaging calls the "maintenance catwalks") though, again showing the original design, they and some of the other tiles contain trees next to them as if explorers stumbled over the ship in the forest.

All in all, there's nothing wrong with the concept of Starship Chambers as long as you're expecting Warhammer 40k "grim and gritty" starship chambers as opposed to Star Trek style "sleek and gleaming" architecture. The map pack is done in the same style as another one, Starship Corridors, so they're a natural pairing.


Almost unusable alone

***( )( )

The map pack is beautiful (hence the 3 stars) but it is incomplete and utterly useless ob its own. It requires at least some other maps pack to complement it. In addition the rooms featured in the pack are not engaging though detailed and beautiful.

Ehrmagherd. I think I will be saying this a lot for the next little while...

Now you're thinking with Portals (or is it Wormholes?)

Well you could take a look at the calendar.

I am hoping this isn't an April Fools as these would be good for Star Wars d20, or any Sci Fi game that uses minis.

I would love to think that this could mean Paizo would also do some modern day map packs e.g. Office Block, Downtown, University Campus etc, however I think this map pack might be tying into the downed spaceship in Numeria (or whatever that region in Golarion is called). Didn't I hear there is going to be an AP called Iron Gods or something? That would fit with this.

I'm fairly certain it's not a joke.

Grand Lodge

It is an April Fool's Joke :)

Well, if it is a joke they've gone to great lengths, since they're in Diamond Distributor's sales kit for August...

It is not. I deliberately put up our August/September releases yesterday to avoid such speculation.

If it's an April Fools joke... I'm in DEEP $W*$#(* because that means I need to scramble to come up with an Adventure Path in about 10% of the time I normally have to build an AP and its support products.

This will work well for my Gamma World game - may need to buy a few once the previews come out.

That's a good call. Throw in a little bit of Mythic towards the end.

Myself, I'm thinking it's time to whip out DA2 and DA3, Temple of the Frog and City of the Gods.


All I have to say is... COOL!

Can't wait for Iron Gods, should be so much awesome!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I will definitely get at least one of these!

My saying it was an April Fools Joke was the joke... as I knew the posting of the "Star Chambers" Map Pack wasn't. Looks like it went off well hehe :)

That was fun!!! :)

I guess next year that August/September announcements will come out April 2nd? :)


Dotting for future purchase!

For anyone who just can't wait for August, or who want to supplement their starship/tech dungeon maps, Christopher West has done some great tech-themed stuff as well. In addition to the maps and card sets you see, the back of his Numenera maps include 1"-scale lab complexes.

Interesting. Should also be good for any Star Wars RPG players out there.

Hmm. I would be all over this if the map pack included high-resolution jpegs for VTT use.

The PDF is fairly high resolution, and suitable for use in a VTT.


Does this mean Paizo is coming out with a sci-fi version of Pathfinder?!? Please say YES!!!

Never say never, but for now, the Iron Gods Adventure Path is the next best thing.


Expedition to the Barrier peaks... here I come woohoo!!

That was my first reaction: "This puts me in the mood to play Space Hulk... and that's not a bad thing!"

With this being used in upcoming Starfinder adventures, i expect a sell-out soon. ;-)


New to paizo, question: if it says unavailable for print, is that for now, or forever? Is it awaiting reprint, or do I need to pray to the second hand gods?


Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Map Packs don't get reprinted, sorry. Second-hand gods it has to be . . .

They might update them for use with Starfinder though. Granted there's no telling when that would be.
