Starfinder: A Look Ahead To Horror Among The Stars

2 Minute Read
Oct 11 2018

The upcoming Starfinder Adventure Path, the Signal of Screams, promises to be full of science-fantasy horror, including new spells, feats, themes, and monsters that lurk in the distant darkness between the stars.

Now that the Against the Aeon Throne adventure path has reached its conclusion, Paizo is gearing up for the next 3-chapter Adventure Path, this time leaving behind the action-and-intrigue-packed intrigues of the Azlanti empire behind to explore some new thematic territory. This time embracing the delicious blend of Sci-Fi and Horror, we’re moving into territory explored by stories like Dead Space and Event Horizon and the like.

With this new Adventure Path, Paizo is taking us into the luxurious confines of a resort asteroid where everything is going fine, right up until the playes run afoul of The Diaspora Strain. Find powerful new abilities that come with a horrific price, as well as a ton of new options for players interested in exploring the horrific side of things. Especially since in this adventure the players are swept up in the madness as much as the NPCs.

Elysium is a Lie

A vacation at a luxury resort located on an asteroid goes horribly wrong as the facilities malfunction and the guests and staff turn violent. The heroes must protect themselves, aid others who have remained rational. and hopefully find a way to stop the growing delirium, even if it means going through guests who have been transformed into hideous abominations! But what will the heroes do when they realize the same condition has begun affecting their own minds?
