Is anyone planing on renaming the SPOILER?


Dead Suns

Scarab Sages

If you're a player in the Dead Suns AP don't read the spoiler unless you want to be... spoiled.

Ok seriously I hate the name of this...:
Stellar Degenerator? Really? I know Death Star and Starkiller Base were taken but that name is seriously on the nose, like early 60s B-grade Sci-Fi bad.

Anyone got any better suggestions?


Well it's kinda hard to suggest a new name when we don't know precisely how it functions, although we can certainly guess. Other than being "on the nose" what don't you like about the name?


suggestions:

Starbuster. Nova Bomb. Coronaic Disruptor.


Another suggestion:
Stellar Annihilator?

Spoiler:
Simple it's not scary or awe inspiring and it basically tells the PCs what it does (we assume collapses stars?)

Would be cooler if it had an alien name and then they learn what it does.

I'll probably just call it Maurice.

"If we don't destroy the Black Star, all is lost!"

"If we don't destroy the Stellar Degenerator, all is lost!"

See the difference?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Yes. The first sounds like a fantasy name, the second like a science fiction name.


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

Yeah I kinda like the name, it feels nice and scifi, plus the name hints at what it does so there's a good reason to be afraid!

So both are half wrong, since starfinder is a science fantasy game. :)

So we just need to combine the two, right?

"If we don't destroy the Stellar Star, all is lost!"

Spoiler:
Nailed it!

It's certainly better than

"if we don't destroy the Black Degenerator, all is lost!"

So do I and I can't stop laughing when I hear Stellar Degenerator.

I really hope the final boss is asking for "1 million credits or he'll fire it."

Well the AP is called the dead suns, why not call it the dead sun, or sun deather (j/k), seriously though if you don't like it's name may I suggest sun slayer, star slayer, solar decimator, sun destroyer, solar doom, star darkener (again j/k)


Light Ender


Guess the project name could be Project Dim Bulb. ;)


The Starkiller weapon?

I hope the final boss is Don Carnage.

I may call it something like, Final Desolation.

And Solar Decimator would fall short of killing a star as it would only reduce it by 1/10.

I apologize for the vague names of the aliens involved here, but I can't remember the names of the races involved and don't have the AP at hand. I'll edit this later to be clearer.

I'm also trying to be mindful of when the builder's information, versus when the beings who hid its information is being looked at. Each race would likely have different names for the device. So, for me, the "Builder's" called it:

show:
Entropy's Arrow

and the "Hiders" called it the Stellar Degenerator.

this lets you do some cultural anthropology on the two races by way of inference, with one race clearly more literal and the other metaphoric in their world views.

No. That was a terrible movie.

If someone pass translate check it will translate as A Device to Degenerate Steller Cores and Cause their Quite Fast but not Immediate Collapse.
