New Scenarios: Renkroda Heartlove!!!

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Whew! With Origins 2018 only days behind us, I wanted to take some time to talk about the scenarios that just had a pre-release at that event and will be coming out this month. Unlike most releases, this month consists of three new Starfinder Society products, although one of them is a unique event and isn't available for open play just yet.

Starfinder Society #1-16: Dreaming of the Future is comes to us from four distinct and skilled new authors. This quest pack contains a set of four quests taking place throughout the Pact Worlds. The PCs travel to Aballon, the Diaspora, Verces, and even the moons of Liavara in search of a hidden repository of lost knowledge. Each quest runs about an hour and can provide shorter gaming experiences for local groups looking for ways to introduce new players to Starfinder. As mentioned, we have some new authors involved in these projects and I'd like to be the first to welcome Natalie Kertzner, Nate Wright, Sasha Lindley Hall, and Tineke Bolleman into our growing family of Starfinder Society freelancers! We're also pleased to feature excellent art by Donald Crank and Nicolas Espinoza, the latter who depicted this enterprising ikeshti to the right.

This scenario has the Quest, Repeatable, and Starship tags.

Our next release is something special for players who've been following the ongoing Scoured Stars season storyline. Veteran freelancer Larry Wilhelm brings us another epic entry into the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild with Starfinder Society #1-17: Reclaiming the Time-Lost Tear. As our first Tier 5-8 scenario, you can expect a lot of challenging encounters and exploration of heightened threats—including those illustrated by Graey Erb. I suspect many a player will be uttering the dreaded line, "it could be worse."

This scenario has the Faction (Second Seekers [Luwazi Elsebo]) tag.

While far from the final installment in our ongoing Scoured Stars storyline, this tale of adventure and exploration leads directly into our final preview product.

Starfinder Society #1-99: The Scoured Stars Invasion, by well-known Paizo freelancer Mikko Kallio, saw its worldwide debut at Origins. This event is big, as in we're talking trinary star system big. While describing much of this scenario would be a spoiler-ridden minefield, I am pleased to say that it's an event that helps shape the future of the campaign and begins to pivot the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild's (extended) first season. As a fan of modern television, I'd refer to this event as a strong "mid-season finale" that pays off many of our ongoing story threads, while also seeding some serious new plotlines into the campaign. For those interested in playing it soon, don't fret! There will be additional exclusive runs of this this event at PaizoCon UK and Gen Con 2018. Following Gen Con, this event becomes open for wider release at all qualifying events. If you're concerned about future scenarios spoiling the events of this interactive, we've got you covered—don't expect any major follow-ups to this event until the September releases!

This scenario has the Exclusive, Faction (Second Seekers [Luwazi Elsebo]), and Starship tags.

Well that's it from the Starfinder Organized Play team! We'd like to take an opportunity to thank the hard working staff, volunteers, and everyone who played Starfinder (or Pathfinder) game at Origins 2018 (and the fans who voted at the Origins Awards, naming Starfinder RPG the Fan Favorite RPG). While convention season is hectic and filled with long-nights, going to a convention always reminds me about what I really enjoy in our industry: the fans. Getting to talk to people all throughout the convention about Starfinder has re-energized me to get more done. I and the rest of the team renew our dedication in making the Starfinder Roleplaying Guild the best living science-fantasy campaign around.

Until next time,

Thurston Hillman
Starfinder Society Developer

Oooooooooooooooooooops.

Teach me to write a blog right after a five day convention and a day of travel home. I'll see about getting this updated to a more appropriate title.

Heh, really hoping for a mission to rescue the Pact World's sensational, feather boa draped, singing/dancing, interstellar diva one day! ;) :D

After Natalie magnanimously didn't slaughter my table, I look forward to playing it again. I loved the NPC you wrote for this!

Aw, thanks! This was my first published adventure, having primarily dealt in 3rd party player options beforehand, so I'm glad to have provided some fun!

I can't wait to GM this some more. :)

Are there other living science-fantasy campaigns? I'm not being smarmy, I'm actually curious.

Edit: Of course, I remembered two just minutes after I posted this!

I don't always like blog posts, but when I do, they are about great adventures by new, talented writers!

Ah, yes, the wisdom of Renkroda Heartlove, the most interesting theropod in the Pact Worlds.
