Starfinder Society

GM ShadowLord's SFS #01-01: The Commencement (Inactive)

Game Master The Rising Phoenix

All Starfinders complete their training by conferring with Guidance—a network of uploaded personalities embodying paragons from the Starfinder Society's history. Before receiving the blessing of Guidance, the PCs must meet with and assist critical missions on behalf of key leaders of the Society's leading factions. With the events of the Scoured Stars Incident still fresh in everyone's memory, there's plenty that needs doing to set the Society back on track.

I came across this in the society guide. I'm not sure if any of you have read it yet, so I'm posting it here for you. I have no idea if any of this corresponds to anything in our mission as it was taken from the SFS guide not from our scenario.


In 316 ag, the Starfinder Society elected the renowned kasatha explorer Jadnura as First Seeker. Elevated due to his reputation for maintaining balance between the various divisions of the Society, Jadnura also proposed a tantalizing personal objective: a coordinated expedition to a region of space known as the Scoured Stars.

The Scoured Stars are a small cluster of star systems known for housing worlds filled with vicious fauna, not to mention an abundance of malicious outsiders and other strange entities. Well over a century ago, the Starfinder Society prohibited expeditions to the Scoured Stars, in part because of the deadly inhabitants but also because findings from the few successfully explored worlds showed little of research value. Jadnura’s quest would have seem suicidal, had he not provided a link to the mysterious worlds.

During his time as a Starfinder field agent, Jadnura discovered a mysterious artifact known only as the Tear. The item was little more than a jagged hunk of magical stone etched with indecipherable markings. The magical artifact defied most mystical and technological investigation, only relenting after years of intense scrutiny. It took the most powerful divination magic available, but veteran Starfinders uncovered a link between the Tear and the Scoured Stars. When Jadnura ascended to the rank of First Seeker, he rallied the Society to travel to the Scoured Stars to at last answer the Tear’s secrets.


This is the starting point for the first season of the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild. With the bulk of the Starfinder Society lost in the aftermath of the Scoured Stars incident, the Society is on the brink of ruin. Only the actions of a particularly outspoken Starfinder, Luwazi Elsebo, has held the Starfinder Society together in the ensuing months. A dedicated assembly of surviving senior Starfinders has assisted Elsebo in stabilizing the Society, as well as in rebuilding the Forum. Many of these agents specialized in managing specific aspects of Society operations, each becoming de-facto leaders for Society factions both old and new.

Even with the dedication of Luwazi and her allies, the Starfinder Society suffered further losses, as discouraged surviving agents opted to leave the Society. The loss of further field agents, especially those few veterans who left, made holding onto the Society’s vast portfolio of claimed planetoids, stellar regions, and other archaeological sites almost impossible. The necessity of maintaining the Society’s claims on these regions was too much for the remaining agents to handle, and Luwazi turned to outside assistance from reputable mercenary organizations.

Through such imperfect arrangements, Luwazi and her allies successfully held the Starfinder Society together long enough for a new cadre of Starfinders to complete their training. Now, with the Scoured Stars incident still fresh in the memories of the Society’s survivors, the quest to rebuild and discover the truth of what happened in the Scoured Stars begins!

Test, dot

I'd like everyone to visit the Maps & Handouts link and on the first page do three things.

1) Fill out your init dice roll.
2) Paste your picture to be used for the maps that matches your posting picture.
3) Complete the table with the information for reporting.


Everyone please remember to setup your quick stat bar for reference. I find that information useful when needing saves, HP, and other important stuffs.

Kai winced as he saw Ratrod's shot slam into the jumracer, shaking Laboni and nearly ruining all of their hard work on the control surfaces. "Can't you guys at least try and hit him? He's going to pull this off, especially if those other drivers take it into their heads to shoot us instead of him!"

Kai wrenched the junkracer sideways, slipping around a pile of scrap in the center of the track and punching the throttle as he scraped past.

piloting: 1d20 + 7 + 5 + 2 ⇒ (16) + 7 + 5 + 2 = 30

Grr...Got distracted by the wife and swapped posts
