Starfinder's original campaign returns in a new six-adventure hardcover compilation! When a fragment of an ancient alien superweapon surfaces in the depths of hyperspace, its discovery sets off a race to find the extraterrestrial doomsday device. Hopping from planet to planet in the Pact Worlds and beyond, the heroes must contend with both the undead Corpse Fleet and the nihilistic Cult of the Devourer, each of which seeks to acquire the alien artifact for its own purposes. Can the heroes find and destroy the superweapon before their enemies seize control of it, or will the Pact Worlds' sun go dark and cold, a harbinger of dead suns across the galaxy?

Starfinder's very first campaign explodes onto the pages of this massive hardcover compilation, containing all six adventures in the Dead Suns Adventure Path, a galaxy-spanning campaign that helped launch the Starfinder RPG, along with support articles, rules, monsters, and more!

ISBN-13: 978-1-64078-459-8

I do assume cover is placeholder, but I still find it funny that huntmaster Xavra is there as third bad guy considering other two faction leaders are far more important to plot than he is xD (he is pretty deadly though)

But yeah huh. I wonder if there are updates to this one or maybe roll20 support. Would be nice if they can work out some of the original's railroady elements.

That's interesting.

I also secretly hope they expand some of npcs with npc articles to give them more depth :'D But I do think entire new pages are unlikely (unless book doesn't include any of the original extra articles unrelated to ap itself)

This hits me at an awkward moment, since my group's probably 2 sessions from wrapping up Book 1.

Yay! I'll take two!!


I'm surprised, but this is neat to see.

Hopefully since I already have six books physically so justification to buy this might be hard :'D

It used to be that Paizo shied away from compilations because of how they impacted subscriptions. It's interesting to see how the business model seems to have shifted. (And nice for me since it makes it easier to catch up on stuff I missed.)

Oh, I had no idea this was coming, and I am super-excited for it!

Probably the only Starfinder AP besides Fly Free or Die I and most players had a problem with from time to time. So hoping they do some rewrites to smooth things out a bit more for this one.

Time will tell if I'll get this or stick to the old AP

How to bypass the majority of Starfinder AP #2 in one affordable item.

LOL, I tried GMing 6 different groups on Dead Suns and and most of them were not liking it, and I as well. Though granted I had very hi hopes for the first new AP from (AKA like a Rise of the Runelords from PF I kinda thing).

But they have been getting better with each one for the most part at least :)

In order to set expectations, no, this will be a near reprint with very few changes. This is a product that will appeal to players who are looking to play the AP for the first time, not an expansion for those looking to replay this formative Starfinder Adventure Path.

Likewise, there will not be a PDF update of the existing individual volume PDFs.

Not every AP will get a complication. This is like a victory lap for APs and decided on a case by case basis. Subscribers to the AP line still have the best value: high quality without the wait.

sounds like very skippable book then, unless it gets roll20 release or something

I plan on getting at least 2 for people I know, plus my original copies aren't exactly mint condition anymore... So I'll probably end up getting at least 3 copies.

Sure. The hardcover compilations like Rise of the Runelords, Curse of the Crimson Throne and Kingmaker are more about updating a popular AP for the newest edition of the game. This is more about keeping an AP in stock. Also great for local game stores, libraries, and bringing new players into the Pact Worlds. More "New Player Acquisition" than "Expansion for Fans." Definitely a good one for VTTs to add. Adventures Ahead!

Holy crap! This is ironic considering the Dead Suns campaign I was playing in here on the forums wrapped up last month after nearly three years of play. XD
