The discovery of a series of millennia-old ruins sets off a chain of events that puts an ancient titanic spacecraft on course to the Pact Worlds. When the vessel—which belongs to an evil, warmongering civilization long thought dead—begins destroying all other ships in its path and attacking important resources to increase its power, the heroes must rescue millions of lives from destruction and find a way to stop the ship and all aboard it. Will the heroes be triumphant? Or will the alien species take the Pact Worlds as its new home and conquer the galaxy?

Rescuing a xenoarcheological team on a distant, frozen world from weather gone haywire, the heroes unearth more than they bargained for as an ancient ruin rises from the ground and kicks off a series of events that could change the face of the galaxy forever. The tower contains secrets of a warlike civilization thought long dead and is strangely connected to small moon in the Pact Worlds. Returning to explore a previously unknown facility under the moon's surface that threatens to overheat and destroy all life there, the heroes learn that the moon is signaling a gigantic alien craft, drawing it toward the system with lethal intent!

“Waking the Worldseed” is a Starfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for four 13th-level characters. This adventure begins The Devastation Ark Adventure Path, a three-part, monthly campaign in which the players stop the threat of an ancient alien civilization in Starfinder's first high-level adventures! This volume also includes a gazetteer of the moon of Hibb and a selection of deadly threats.

Each monthly full-color softcover Starfinder Adventure Path volume contains a new installment of a series of interconnected science-fantasy quests that together create a fully developed plot of sweeping scale and epic challenges. Each 64-page volume of the Starfinder Adventure Path also contains in-depth articles that detail and expand the Starfinder campaign setting and provide new rules, a host of exciting new monsters and alien races, a new planet to explore and starship to pilot, and more!

Yay! Go Bantrids!!

Its probably new race because we haven't heard of galactic history in neither Pathfinder or Starfinder.

But yeah, cool high level premise indeed :D I'm probably gonna be repeating myself since I'm just happy this exists

I wonder if second 3 part ap will cover levels until 20th or if it will be another low level one and we get final levels later. I don't think the 6 part ap of 2020 will be high level one though, if they ever do 6 part aps covering 13-20 they probably wouldn't do a year with only high level aps.

Also wait a sec, I forgot that Hibbs is were Bantrids woke up from stasis. Bantrids are somehow connected to oncoming doomship? What.


Aren't the Astrozoans descended from some forgotten race?

That'd be a scary empire to face.

Anyway, so happy to see some high level content. Hope it gets sanctioned for Society play!

The immediate question we're all wondering about is how high this is going...

Well all of Starfinder APs are three levels per book(well, in that sense there is level it begins in, level you level up during it and level you level up to at end of it)... So 13-15, 15-17 and 17-19 maybe?

So practically first one would be 13-14, second one 15-16 and third one 17-18? That said, I don't remember how starfinder's exp math works on top of my head, so for all I know I'm wrong.

A high-level, 3-Part adventure path?

Yes. Sign me up. THANK YOU!

Just adding to the noise and saying YAY for high level content! Great news for both home games and Society!

Also, I'm already thinking of ways to string SoS and this together once my group finishes up Curse of the Crimson Throne! (We're half way through book 4)

I adore the Bantrid. I might be more excited to learn more of their culture than I am to play this.

Historically, high-level Pathfinder adventures have seen slow downs in the speed of leveling as compared to low-level content. I'm not sure if Starfinder will work that way or not.

Excited to see this! Also, I love the three-book format for APs; it seems much more approachable.

Hmm


I approve of this.

Ooh. This sounds fantastic!

I'm also having flashbacks to the Berserker series... although it's been so long I barely remember any of it! Should bring back some good memories.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Sounds fun. I guess I will have to create level 13 starter characters. I don't have any past 10 right now.


Hmm...now that I’ve thought about it a bit, what if the enemy is the Sivv?

They made the Stellar Degenerator, which was a weapon of truly colossal and catastrophic proportions. This Devastation Ark could be right up their alley.

Sivv civilization died out due to bankrupting themselves though so having multiple superweapons would be kinda weird. Plus its wasn't outright stated they were evil and warmongering, the war with kishalee just escalated a looooooot and they were desperate to end the centuries long war.

If I remember correctly, it is stated that the kishalee were finally defeated by an unnamed warmongering race (not the sivv, exactly)... Could be this one? I think I'll continue my Dead Suns campaign with this AP

This AP should be covering levels 13-19.

Maybe #33 is extra long or has a "continuing the campaign" section?

We are planning to have a blog post at some point in January with a little more information about The Devastation Ark AP... but I haven't written it yet.

So what would you want to know? Do you want to hear some spoilers? Would you like to see some preview art? How can I get you even more excited?

And just to be a bit of a tease, I'll say that there's some REALLY GOOD speculation going on in this thread...

Art! ART! ARRRRRRRRRTTTTTTTT!

Pretty pretty please :3


Welp, this is awesome. Our Dead Suns group was one of my favorite groups of people to play with in my whole TTRPG career, and we've long been saying we'd love to run our characters up more, but our Dead Suns GM is overworked and wasn't up to writing his own campaign.

...so basically, Keeley, that's at least one very happy group of customers here.

Well, what levels it covers, how the heck the currently unnamed ancient race is connected to bantrids, what the ancient race actually is and have we heard about them would be nice to know :D

Besides that, it would be interesting to hear how it has been like to work on high level starfinder content and how the starship combat and such works on higher levels. I've been wondering a lot about whether amount of exp slows down at higher levels in Starfinder like it did in Pathfinder so whether this starts at level 13 and after final boss ends at 19 or if its more like two levels per book.

(it would help with my speculation, I mean if it IS 3 levels per book, then the hypothetical high level 6 part adventure would need to start at level 9 with 9-11, 11-13, 13-15, 15-17, 17-18 and 19-20. That way you get to play in level 20 and not just end the book on it or play for level 20 for the entire adventure. Though in that scenario, level 9 would be bit odd since 3 part aps end at level 7, so it wouldn't be effortless to combine two of them with it... Speculating is fun!)

I feel like you might have missed that this is a three-issue AP.

And I think you missed the "hypothetical" part :D I'm speculating based on this 3 part AP what levels hypothetical high level six part adventure would look like

Or the bantrid ran as far away from the unknown threat as they could and ran so hard it imparted a species-wide phobia of staying still.

I'm so happy to see some high level gameplay for Starfinder. Hopefully this adventure takes the party the rest of the way to 20. I know my group will probably never make it to finish the way to max level but I know just having the option there makes them much more excited and willing to jump into the game.

Everyone liked that.


Starfinder Superscriber

You had me at Hibb.


Will any new playable races be debuting in this AP?


Starfinder Charter Superscriber

I'll also de-cloak to say this fills a much-needed gap in Starfinder adventures. Thanks!

Ohhhhh...this looks cool! and the way my group is going, they should finish Signal of Screams just in time for it :P

I'd like to have enough info to foreshadow and link it to Dead Suns.


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

Well, this is awesome.

And also too late. I've just bought Legendary Planet so we could have a high-level adventure.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Well, then. I guess I gotta put my money where my mouth is, then, now that the devs finally did what I asked for. I'll get some of the hardcovers through local retailers, since shipping from the US kills me. But I'll sub for The Threefold Conspiracy and this one.

Addendum: Guess I'll have to start in a few weeks, since at the current time the suscription still only offers the fifth and sixth parts of the current AP. But I'll make a note to do it in a few weeks, i.e. at the end of January.

Until which level does this AP go? And also, how to connect this high level AP to past AP's you've done? Especially the Threefold Conspiracy, since that will be the first one I'll get :p
