Hired Guns

Now employees of the Deep Cultures Institute, the heroes are set to investigate what's happening in the sun. Burglars in the DCI museum throw that plan askew by stealing the institute's data. The missing files are compiled and cross-referenced rumors on potential intelligent life inside the Pact Worlds' star, none of them substantiated. Who might want such speculation, and why? Following the robbers' path takes the heroes to the bubble-city of Corona and the infamous, unstable Brass Bazaar, where they learn the thieves weren't the only ones interested in the DCI's guesswork. The heroes must uncover who has the stolen data, find out where it's stored, and extract it. In the process, they discover more than they bargained for!

This volume of Starfinder Adventure Path continues the Dawn of Flame Adventure Path and includes:

  • "Soldiers of Brass," a Starfinder adventure for 3rd-level characters, by Crystal Frasier.
  • An array of quirky locations in the Brass Bazaar, along with the people and items found in them, by Adrian Ng.
  • A tourists' survey of the Burning Archipelago, by Kate Baker.
  • An archive of elemental creatures, from mischievous mephits to cruel salamanders, by Crystal Frasier and Owen K.C. Stephens.
  • Statistics and deck plans for an efreeti starship, by Thurston Hillman, and a vignette of a desert world that serves as a haven for damaged starships, by Christopher Carey.

First Smurf to crash the message board Hahahaha!

In all seriousness, though, this AP seems legit from the descriptions

Where is the cover image? Issue 4 of this AP already has a cover.

Issue 1 & 4 at least have placeholder covers, this & issue 3 & 5 have nothing yet.

I guess Starfinder is priority #3 after PF 2.0 & PF 1.0, as there is no hardcover announced for the first half of 2019 & the Starfinder Beginner Box wasn't heard from ever again since it's initial announcement... ;-(

What are the articles in this issue? Each of the rest of the AP has a sentence listing what articles are in them, but not this one. Also, what race/species is the lady on the cover? Tiefling? I'm very curious about her and her species, especially if she is not a tiefling.

I'm guessing she's an Efreeti.

A white haired one? Maybe, but she would be a first. She looks like a tiefling too, an oni blooded one. But she could indeed be an Efreeti or an Ifrit.

Possibly, but Efreeti have never had designated hair colors to my knowledge.

She took a Serum of Appearance Change.

I'm curious if we'll be getting one of the other mainline genie-kin in the alien archive for this or one of the different flavors of ifrit from the Plane-Hopper's Handbook(Sunsoul seems particularly appropriate for the AP).

That's assuming we get a new playable species at all, of course.

They confirmed that we're getting all 5 of genie-kin races on one of the SF Wednesday streams, but they'll be spread throughout the AP.

I really hope we get PC race stats for Salamanders, considering the lack of serpentine races so far (besides Ilthisarian).

I was kind of hoping for Playable Efreeti and Azer but nope! Playable Salamanders would satisfy my planar race urge.

I am fortunate enough to have my copy! I'll do what I can to answer questions but I haven't had much more than a skim through so far.

Are salamanders playable? Regardless, what geniekin (or other playable race) is in this book, if any?

What's your favorite aspect of the Brass Bazaar?

Spoiler:
Salamanders aren't playable unfortunately, however we do get both Suli and Sylph instead.

I haven't finished reading the Brass Bazaar section just yet, but there is an Anacite-run shop which sells robotic toys that is quite entertaining.

What are the other monsters in the bestiary (name, type, subtypes, size and CR)?

I got my pdf today! I always skim through the art and the articles at the back first, and I must say I'm a fan of the "Touring the Archipelago" article. It's a fun angle for examining a location. And who wouldn't like to take a tourist jaunt to the Sun?

Alien Archive creatures:

Janni, medium outsider (native) CR 4
Mephit, small outsider (extraplanar, variety of grafts with different subtypes) CR 3
Suli, medium outsider (native) CR 1 + playable race
Sylph, medium outsider (native) CR 2 + playable race
Salamander, medium outsider (extraplanar, fire) CR 6
Thoqqua, medium outsider (earth, elemental, extraplanar, fire) CR 2

I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Elinnea! I think that’s one of the most creatively challenging thingsI’ve worked on so far!

Is it just me or are the maps in the PDF, lower rez than usual?

Especially the ship interior in the back of the PDF is low-rez for me. I can barely make out any details.

I just wanted to personally thank Crystal Frasier for the trap in A4.

Absolutely brilliant, thank you!

Book 1 had a map of Asanatown, Book 2 sadly hasn't a map of Corona.

I would like a map folio for Starfinder Adventure Paths.

I know "Pact Worlds" has a map, but it's not very detailed.

I am seeing the same thing, too. It's not just you. Why are they so low-rez?

It looks like they had an issue with the maps in the PDF this time, because I just bought the PDF and have the same problem. And some people in the Costumer Service forums also has it.

I'll hope they upload a better version soon :)

So any funny items in the bazaar?

I've noticed that the PDF was updated to fix the over-compressed images (Thanks!), but the inside cover map of the starship is still undersized. (It's the only undersized image left at this point.)
