Into the Fire!

With data recovered during the previous adventure, the heroes have proof of a deep-culture site in the sun and the coordinates to travel there. What they lack is the technology to dive into the star. Luckily, a member of the Corona Artifact Divers, daredevils who delve into the sun's atmosphere for thrills and profit, has just what the heroes need. However, this genius inventor is in debt to "business people" who have claimed the sun-diving starship to recoup their investments. The characters must venture to the bubble of Verdeon, confront those holding the vessel, and pilot it into the sun. Upon doing so, the heroes find a truly bizarre bubble-city and the key to further solar adventure!

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

  • "Sun Divers," a Starfinder adventure for 5th-level characters, by Joe Pasini.
  • A survey of Noma, a bubble-city of artificial intelligence within the sun, by Joe Pasini.
  • A look at a handful of nefarious criminal organizations operating across the galaxy and equipment of use to those who engage in questionable activities, by Lacy Pellazar.
  • An archive of creatures elemental and solar, as well as the unique artificial life of Noma, by Joe Pasini, Owen K.C. Stephens, and Linda Zayas-Palmer.
  • Statistics and deck plans for a starship that dives into the heart of a sun, by Joe Pasini, and details of a moon being terraformed by genies from the Plane of Earth, by Judy Bauer.

The adventure description is missing some text at the end.

Treasure diving into the sun sounds like something an Icon would do. ;-)


"Business People" could mean a Barathu Corporation, and I'm pretty sure the next word is most likely Archipelago, but don't quote me on that.

Criminal groups. Cool. Need that.


That salamander looks awesome. I'm excited to learn more.

Dark Archive

This volume will probably have the "Oread" &/or "Undine" in the Alien Archive section.


The whole bit about a moon being terreformed by shaitan makes me think it'll be oreads. But who knows.


I wonder if there are any homages to David Brin’s novel Sundiver in here. Since I read it over 30 years ago I’m not going to spot them if they’re there.

Come for the solar submarines in space, stay for the vast criminal enterprises.

For real though: Is the Shadari Confederacy in this? My smuggler SFS character needs to know cause there's a big old hole in his backstory.

There is not, sorry.

Also, some of the artwork in the PDF is rather low quality/compressed. I do hope they sent the right file to the printer...
If the PDF could be updated, that would be great.


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


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Djinni (CR 5 Large Outsider, Air, Extraplanar)
Ghul (CR 5 Medium Undead, Shapechanger)
Photonic Anomaly (CR 5 Huge Starship Ooze, Fire)
Protocite Reclaimer (CR 3 Medium Construct, Technological)
Protocite Speaker (CR 3 Small Construct, Technological)
Wysp (CR 2 Tiny Ousider, Elemental, Extraplanar)
Wysp Conductor (CR 8 Tiny Ousider, Elemental, Extraplanar)

The criminal organisations discussed are the Abazobaris, Disciples of Grace, Golden League, Ixo Syndicate, and Verdant Shield. Really cool lore stuff in here.

Also, want to second the request to tweak the art. There are a lot of low quality images in here, with several looking very pixelated. The renders look gorgeous, as always, so it would be grand to see them clearly. That aside, wonderful issue.

Could someone describe the protocites? What are their connections to the anacites?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Protocites are so similar to anacites that some of them use anacite stats. They are the main subject matter of this adventure, so I really cannot summarize them here.

Seconding the call for attention to the undersized images, which is now an ongoing concern and no longer limited to the maps.

I'm going to herald the call about the image compression as well, hoping that my print copy doesn't look as terrible as my .pdf looks. The image clarity for a disconcerting proportion of the art is really bad.


Pathfinder Card Game, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yeah... it's really bad. I hope this image resolution issue won't overshadow the adventure itself, which looks quite interesting.

Dark Archive

The print version has no image resolution issues - besides being printed too dark.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

So, there's an updated version of the PDF, that's slightly bigger in file size and looking better :) Thanks.

Seconding the thanks for fixing the images in the last two issues, but must note that the map of the Excoriation Combine Jezail in the inside back cover of SFAP#14 still needs help.
