Fly Free or Die Adventure Path

A crew of scoundrels, rogues, and misfits finds it hard to survive in a galaxy where everyone has a price. Targeted by a crime boss and his army of enforcers, preyed upon by faceless mega-corporations, and hounded by rivals, the crew of the Free Trader Oliphaunt line up the big score that will at last make them rich beyond their wildest dreams. But when their many enemies join forces and the crew loses it all, they find out there's two things in the galaxy that can't be bought: freedom... and revenge.

We're No Heroes (1 of 6): It's just another day punching the clock when the player characters, a blue-collar transport crew, are blamed for a bad cargo and stiffed of their bonuses. They take a dangerous job smuggling weapons to a world conquered by militant hobgoblins, but one fiasco later, they're in debt to a crime boss and about to be fired. Their only chance is to steal the Oliphaunt, an experimental cargo hauler with a magical secret, and then survive long enough to collect the payoff!

In this thrilling kick-off to the new Fly Free or Die Starfinder Adventure Path, a crew of scoundrels, rogues, and misfits finds it hard to survive in a galaxy where everyone has a price.

“We're No Heroes" is a Starfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for four 1st-level characters. It makes an excellent introduction to the game for new players. The adventure begins the Fly Free or Die Adventure Path, a six-part, monthly campaign in which a merchant crew with an experimental starship tries to get rich, escape interplanetary assassins, and outwit their rivals. This volume also includes rules for finding, buying, and selling interstellar cargo (and using the profits to enhance your starship), a collection of deadly threats, and a player's guide that provides advice and new character creation options ideal for this Adventure Path.

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!

We’re getting a player’s guide?! Awesome!

CorvusMask: It is not a space pirate AP. It is a space trucker AP. As far as alignment goes, I expect most characters will be some version of Neutral, but important moral and ethical choices are an important part of this AP, so what you do and how you treat others WILL matter.

Toxicsyn: Yes! All three of those were influences (but there are a lot of other influences too).

Porridge: Yes! Chris Sims, former Starfinder Developer, wrote it; it's in the back of the first volume and includes new themes, gear, and player backgrounds to tie your character into the adventure.

This sounds more like 'The adventures of Han Solo & Chewy' or Firefly than pirates or evil characters for sure.

Hey, maybe my group will want me to run this one after we finish Runelords. It doesn't have to be Space Pirates, it just has to off the space fantasy adventure game beaten path. That it comes out after the Starship Ops Manual I have high hopes for it.

You will definitely see some specific rules from SOM in this AP, though not necessarily in the first volume. Things like boarding, starship chases, etc.

I did a job. Got nothing but trouble since I did it too, not to mention more than a few unkind words as regards to my character. So let me make this abundantly clear:

I do the job. And then I get paid.

This is one of my favorite motifs for sci fi adventures, I'm super excited for this AP.

That ship is really amazing. That really is truly amazing. That is so amazingly amazing I think I'd like to steal it.

This will be a 6-volume adventure path starting at 1st level, and the players should be 13th by the end. Devastation Ark will be out by then, so you can move right into that AP for endgame play!

Glad to hear that it goes to 13! I'm still hoping one day we'll get a 1-20 Starfinder AP but the fact that we've got one that takes us into higher level gameplay is nice.

Well, hopefully we'll see a new 3-parter for high levels after this one. But this one sounds pretty cool already!

I'm very excited to see a classic Traveler-style sandbox (?) AP for Starfinder. Cool!

Sounds like it has a really nior Sin City vibe to it, I might have to repaint my terrain grey scale with red highlights while I'm waiting.

Take my love, take my land,
Take me where I cannot stand.
I don't care, I'm still free,
You can't take the sky from me.

Take me out to the black,
Tell them I ain't comin back.
Burn the land and boil the sea,
You can't take the sky from me.

There's no place, I can be,
Since I've found Serenity.

And you can't take the sky from me.

It’s as sandbox as I can make it, while still being an AP. I encourage GMs to modify the hell out of this thing, to give the players as much choice as possible. But in an AP with limited page count, I just can’t account for every possibility.

Looks great. Still hoping for Starfinder a Kingmaker-like, where the maps are planets, and it’s all about terraforming and building colonies.
