The first stand-alone adventure for the Starfinder RPG is here! Centuries ago, the Stellar Flare—a science vessel researching the strange dimension known as the Drift—crashed on the surface of Akiton. Now, Vari-13, an android with a claim to the Stellar Flare, wants to find the wreck and rescue its valuable research. But Vari-13 will need help, and that's where your heroes come in. The Stellar Flare's remains lie in the middle of an enormous junk field filled with malfunctioning technology, inhabited by predatory creatures, and fought over by territorial space goblins. And there are whispers of an enormous robot made entirely of junk that wanders the scrapyards, immune to magic and eager to destroy everything in its path. Can your heroes broker a peace, reach the wreckage, and defend it against an army of scavengers? Junker's Delight is a complete Starfinder adventure for 1st-level characters written by Jason Keeley and Misha Bushyager. It features strange new alien creatures, new spells and equipment, and an in-depth look at Khefak Depot, a rough-and-tumble Akitonian settlement home to countless adventures!

3/5

Fun module except for one fight that was awful. The first two parts of the module were fun, but part 3 was obnoxious. One fight was poorly designed and resulted in characters either being ineffective or sitting out entirely. Several traps/encounters were also annoying.


5/5

Having run this twice I have fallen in love with this Module.
The fights are good
The NPC's delightful
The Town hoppin

There is so much for Characters to do while trying to solve what is going on to be free-forming enough to let them decide what to do.
Highly recommend


This was ... well... a DELIGHT!

5/5

Wow.. what a great module... full of Delightfull NPC's Dastardly Gangs and a Mcguffin Quest that actually made sense (well at least the Goblins thought it did)
As a VERY experienced GM this was a Delight to run and As I had 3 VERY new Players (all from The 5e World) they were amazed at how easy it was to learn the game while aso having fun.
This was also enjoyable for the ONE experienced player too...
As a GM I was amazed and smiled ALOT as I was prepping this (BTW the ROLL20 Conversion is AMAZING too)
This EXPLAINED things so well (I would say a better beginners box than the Beginners Box)
The Barrier Mentioned below did not seem to be an issue to me (My players have not reached it yet but I will simply tell my party it is an Impervious Force Shield right at the door... (edit... yep that worked fine when we played it)
The Treasure issue??? Again not sure the issue ... it was a Technomancers Hoard I would have WONDERED why a Mystic Spell Gem would even be in a Technomancers pile of stuff it would have been incongruousto me. (Edit... Now that I GMd this there is actually a perfect reason why those spells were chosen but it would be a huge spoiler to mention it here... to the OP all I can say is I am very CONFUSED that you did not see why Z had those spell gems) The Book said Great for Soldiers Mechanics and Technomancers (SO my party signed up with a Soldier a Mechanic a Technomancer and a Vanguard) they will not complain.
Great JOB to all involved.


A good starting adventure, with a couple narrative flaws/odd choices

4/5

A good starting adventure - thoroughly enjoyed it after only 2/3rds of the way through. You can use the generic flipmat from Paizo for a desert environment that emulates Akiton well. We used dominoes to simulate the canyon environment.

A couple of things keep this from being a 5 star review -

1. 2/3rds of the way through, you are required to get a 3 piece mcguffin to open a thing. However the people who give you the mcguffin quest are more than happy to lead you to the door its required to open -- but the book is very vague on what the barrier is. It just says a "field" as far as I can tell, but there's nowhere that describes its effects. I had to improvise and put in a level 3 jolting console trap as a way of deterring the players from trying to open the door without the macguffin.

2. Also 2/3rds of the way through, the group gets 3 spell gems as loot. ALL technomancer junk spells. I get the junk theme, but considering that there are 10-12 classes total, that means that there is a less than 10% chance these spellgems would have been useful to the group. I instead made one of the gems Junk Shards which is useable by Witchwarpers. But Mystics get the shaft. I think it would have been more reasonable to make one of them Junk Shards, a Technomancer only gem, and a Mystic gem, so that nobody felt screwed by the choices.

3. The difficulty curve is pretty tight. There's a junk golem with DR 5/Adamantine. For a level 2 group that's a pretty nasty encounter. Before BAB at level 3 combat can be either a cakewalk or a hellish death spiral. I improvised the junk golem by allowing the group to steal the item they need from him and cause it to make him fall apart. I would also restrict the CR 3/CR 3 encounter in front of the wrecked ship to only having to fight one of the two. Though comically the Space goblin's megalaser exploded on him during that scene -- also the megalaser should probably do 3d6 instead of a standard 1d6 explosion. Bigger Junk Laser, bigger boom if you ask me.

Nice :D Depending on amount of item/bestiary/articles, this means it might actually be longer adventure than standard SF AP format xD

Starfinder AP books are 64 pages. Pathfinder AP books are 100 pages. So it fits inline with the current Starfinder book sizes.

Starfinder AP books are 64 pages. Pathfinder AP books are 100 pages. So it fits inline with the current Starfinder book sizes.

Which is what I mean: All of starfinder aps have single page for codex of the world, bestiary article with several monsters not always featured in adventure and one or two(forgot which) articles.

Basically if the strandalone module has even one less article or if every article is adventure relevant, then the adventure is automatically little bit longer than starfinder ap ;D

Would you perhaps consider making the PDF available as a bonus for subscribers preordering this?

Hopefully this is the case. I like having the book on my shelf, but at the table I print out the PDF so I can make notes in it.

This is very disappointing, bordering on unacceptable.

If there is no subscription, and thus no free PDF, I will not purchase these in any format. It is only the subscription and the free PDF that counteracts the extortionate overseas delivery charges and 3-4 weeks delay in receiving the physical document.

Way to (potentially) screw your customers for their loyalty.

... why not just buy the PDF on launch? It's cheaper than a Sub anyway.

If they were offering the sub with no PDF that would be annoying, but there's no sub at all at the moment so don't see how anyone is getting "screwed".

Because the PDFs are overpriced by 200% and running an adventure from a PDF is incredibly frustrating, and building projector maps from a physical document is time consuming - thus I need both, and I am not willing to pay for them separately.

You know, there was probably a more constructive way to frame your core demand.

Some of us would prefer that the free pdf was available for such products *without* the necessity of a "subscription".

Indeed, some companies (such as Paizo's newest licensing partner) manage to provide free .pdf's to customers who purchase their adventures hard-copy from brick-and-mortar FLGSs.

Where Paizo is apparently in the mood for experimentation, and where FLGSs are taking a kicking right now, this seems an ideal time for Paizo to experiment with a different form of support for customers and stores...

So, whaddaya say Paizo? Can you make it so? :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I’d also love to have a subscription option!

In part, because I want Paizo to do well, and the status quo bias makes people who receive something from a prescription more likely to buy it (by not canceling their prescription) than they would if it was offered as a one shot purchasing option.

And in part, because I know I’m precisely the kind of person who wouldn’t get around to ordering stand alone adventures, but would happily receive them as part of a subscription!

I dont know if there's a better spot to talk about this, but in terms of future modules offerings, I presume there'll be quite a few set at level one (which I'm a fan of). I'm really hoping you release an unusual number of level thirteen adventures too.

Similarly (assuming 3 part APs will continue) level seven offerings would be great for me.

And it goes without saying a subscription offering would be extremely welcome. Regular releases I can't subscribe too make me stress!

On sidenote, standalone adventures make me excited about possibilities!

Like besides having more adventures taking place in each planet of pact worlds, standalone format allows experimental stuff like "what if whole adventure takes place in space and has only starship or boarding combat" :D

Also it means we don't HAVE to wait for six months to see adventure that uses mech rules!

Haha, OK, let me ask some distracting questions. How many adventures a year would you need to see in order to subscribe? What is your ideal length/page-count/playtime for each adventure? Would you want it paired with a Flip-Mat, Flip-Tile, or be self-contained?
