This month sees the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild release its first Tier 3-6 scenario: Starfinder Society #1-06: A Night in Nightarch. Adventure Path author and overall prolific freelancer, Mikko Kallio, stepped up to the plate to tackle this first foray into higher level Starfinder play. I had the pleasure of working alongside Mikko on the Ruins of Azlant and War for the Crown Adventure Paths, and I knew from that point that I wanted to bring him onboard for Starfinder Society.

A Night in Nightarch, as the scenario name suggests, takes place in the drow settlement of Nightarch, on the distant world of Apostae. If you've had a chance to read Alien Archive, then you know that the drow have a strong presence on Apostae, where they've taken on a major role as weapon suppliers. The crux of this month's scenario revolves around a standard business transaction gone awry; the Starfinder Society purchased a shipment of weapons from the drow, and now a petty rivalry between drow houses endangers that legitimate agreement. The drow offer the Starfinder Society 24 hours of diplomatic immunity to retrieve the stolen weapons shipment, and it's up to the PCs to accomplish this vital mission.

Getting the Society's guns back will require a measure of guile and stealth... or a determined group of Starfinders willing to kick in the door and murder everything in their path. Mikko did an excellent job of giving the PCs options on how to tackle this dilemma. For groups that prefer a methodical planning approach, there are several benefits to doing so. For groups preferring the battle thrill of clearing out an entire complex of foes, well, there are certainly a lot of enemies to be cleared in this scenario!

Finally, I'm eager to see the reaction to the Chronicle sheet associated with this scenario. We're trying something a bit different with this scenario, and following up on some promises we made from early in the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild's inception. So, please be sure to post your (spoiler tagged) thoughts on the forums!

As a related note, this scenario has no special scenario tags.

Come back next month, and be sure to bring your tinfoil conspiracy hats, when we preview our next scenario Starfinder Society #1-07: The Solar Sortie. This upcoming scenario is of extreme importance to the Dataphiles faction.

Until then!

Wild guess:
We get to meet the undead Hats, as an arms dealer seeking only the best caps in trade for his awesome guns! When the party meets up with him, he requests a signed SMC baseball cap with extra glitter. Unfortunately, they’ve sold out, so the party must construct a facsimile out of tinfoil picked up in a duel with a bunch of Akiton miners.

We're about to find out when I send my 3rd level elf there. Thrusty did say a couple months ago he thought it'd be "high-larious."

The adventure was fun to write; it was so different from anything I've written for Paizo before. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the art, the boons, and other new things Thursty added or improved on. :) I hope people will enjoy it!
