A Near-Death Experience

The undead Corpse Fleet has appeared in orbit above the Gate of Twelve Suns, intent on seizing the ancient alien superweapon called the Stellar Degenerator. The heroes are massively outgunned, and their only hope to defeat the Corpse Fleet is by infiltrating the fleet's flagship and taking control of the vessel's bridge. Only then can the heroes pilot the ship on a collision course with the superweapon in a desperate bid to end both threats at once. If successful, the heroes can destroy the Stellar Degenerator, but they'll need to escape the carnage to live to tell the tale!

This volume of Starfinder Adventure Path concludes the Dead Suns Adventure Path and includes:

  • "Empire of Bones," a Starfinder adventure for 11th-level characters, by Owen K.C. Stephens.
  • Advice on how you can continue your campaign past the final encounter and details on the devastation inflicted on the galaxy should the heroes fail, by John Compton.
  • Technological specifications for starships of extraordinary size and power, by Owen K.C. Stephens.
  • A collection of starships from the dreaded undead navy known as the Corpse Fleet, by Jason Keeley.
  • An archive of new creatures, including a plethora of undead monstrosities and a crystalline humanoid that can redirect blasts of energy, by Owen K.C. Stephens and Larry Wilhelm.
  • Statistics and deck plans for a massive undead flagship, by Owen K.C. Stephens, plus an introduction to a planet constantly wracked by energy storms, by Larry Wilhelm.

I see the PCs are expected to perform the ol' Samus Aran method of bad guy disposal.

I can tell what those are based on the previous volume's preview.

Yes, there is continuing the campaign article, rest of the articles are ships of the corpse fleet and ships of the line which includes "Sometimes battleships and dreadnoughts just aren’t big enough! This article presents new rules for starships of extraordinary size and power capable of acting as mobile bases for entire fleets"

I'm not super excited about those suport articles, i love scy fiy but for some reason ive never been super into space ship designs, tho im well awre that just me and i have been suprised before


Any word on whether the Alien Archive will include a new player race or if they'll be giving that a break after dropping 5 in the last one?

Would be symmetrical, if nothing else. No new races in books 1 or 6.

To be frank, the woioko (from AP #2) should have been in #1, to go with the description of their planet in the first volume's Codex of Worlds. Similarly, we have a new planet in this volume's Codex of Worlds with a new playable race to go along with it!


You know, I got that impression, actually. About the woioko, that is.

And I for one am glad to hear that there'll be yet another new race in this coming book. Honestly I kind of hope there are new playable races in the majority of AP's going forward.

Paizo Employee Developer

Not *every* new volume will have a new playable race, but a lot of them for the next year or so will!

This is mostly speculation on my part, but was the Woioko left out of the first book because you didn't want to include any new playable races right on release and/or were waiting for the Alien Archive to drop? That would make sense to me but I don't know the full story so thought I'd ask.

It's much more than since Alien Archive wasn't out yet, we pretty much needed ever monster slot in the back of the book to be used for things in the adventure itself.

So now the question is whether the new player race is the crystalline humanoid or one of the plethora of undead monstrosities.

What I love about this game is that I genuinely do not know the answer. I suspect it's the crystal but it could go either way.

Thats a cool cover, and so that what are final foe looks like, ptetty cool

Stuff like this is mentioned in the adventure path drift article. To keep a fleet together during the drift you need to have them all linked up or docked to one ship so clearly there are some monstrous ships out there to work as fleet carriers.
