A Starfinder Society Special designed for 4th-level pregenerated characters.

Following the disastrous Scoured Stars Incident, the Starfinder Society fights to remain relevant as the rest of the galaxy moves on. With surviving agents stretched to their limits, the First Seeker launches a desperate bid to search the false moon of Salvation's End. Will the mission reveal a discovery that can stabilize the Society long enough for a new generation of Starfinders to come to the fore? Players use 4th-level versions of the Starfinder iconic characters in this debut special event of the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild.

Written by Larry Wilhelm.

Quirky but short

****( )

The session is fun and a little quirky with the encounters. I personally found the scenario quite short and felt like there should of been a second part.


A really good start

*****

This was a fun one. I actually enjoyed an adventure with pregens and thats not easy. The prison set up added a lot of atmosphere to the adventure and the world, and I was really invested in the mystery of whats in the redacted and the redacted in the redacted. And I almost died laughing at the most annoying radio broadcast ever.

One minor nitpick, Yasoki shouldn't sweat. Sweating is a human thing and really doesn't work too well with giant coat of fur. Rats use their tail for that.


Great fun!

*****

Though this has to do with the DM and the group of players, of course, this was my favorite adventure.
In a more objective way: there are several very nice NPCs, with interesting personalities ; good surprises...
Really worth it!


half baked adventure

*( )( )( )( )

well intruduction adventure can be better but if you gonna play it just meta game it and go second floor pack the package and wait for boss to call. then report its already done


Just okay

From my experience as a GM at my local gaming shop...

First, the set up. I admit, I'm not entirely sure what this scenario is supposed to be. Is it an intro to Starfinder (as one might expect from a 1-00 special that has to be played with pregens)? If so, for brand new players (like my group) starting at 4th level and figuring out starship combat on the fly (pun intended) was maybe not the smoothest introduction to Starfinder. Is it intended for more experienced groups? If so, its release time (at Gen Con along with the game's release) doesn't lend itself to that at all. Maybe I'm overthinking it, but I think I would've rather had a special with level 1 pre-gens, or a "we be space goblins" type special to introduce players to the game.

Second, the story. I liked it! *minor spoilers* Interacting with the barathus as the first alien race made for a memorable encounter, and doing battle with the space goblins was fun. The end was a little bit of a let down (the PCs wanted to keep going), but overall an engaging setting and story, which is harder to accomplish when non-unique pre-gens (goblins, for instance).

Third, the gameplay. It was okay. Running on the 4th day Starfinder was out I think I made the last fight too easy and running *minor spoilers* multiple starships at once against the PCs was quite a bit of a slog.

Overall, a decent scenario, but I would've preferred a level 1 "we be goblins" type of special for scenario 0 of season 1. Playing as 4th level "normal" pre-gens both adds complexity to the game before people are really ready for it and takes away a PC's ability to connect with the character they're playing because they know it's a one-shot. The special also isn't repeatable, and given the relative lack of Starfinder Society content in the first several months of year 1 I'd really rather have had another option for players to run through again (again, like We Be Goblins).

Maybe I just wish this scenario was We Be Space Goblins. That's probably it.

I played this at Gen Con and the only complaint I had was the sudden and abrupt ending, it was good introduction to Starfinder and we had a blast at our table.

I totally agree about the ending.

Only other issue we had was that the GM was not told about the errata which you can find here. That extra Gob ship and bad dice rolls made for a long encounter, but we still finished on-time.

I ran this adventure 2 times at Pacificon in Santa Clara, California. None of us knew if this adventure could be applied to a level 1 Starfinder character? Since it uses level 4 pregens..

For easy reference in the future. :)

What happened to the exception that allowed applying to a character of the same level if the adventure requires pregens?

Can this scenario be played with existing starfinder pc's or ONLY pre-gens?

Will that every change? My local group will be level 4 soon and I would like to run this for them as a precursor to the new scenario related to Salvation. But I don't think they will go for playing pregens instead...


I'm about to gm this on the 19th of may and there's only one thing that confuses me. After reading out from cover to cover, i noticed that it's said twice that the pcs get 3000 credits at the end but the chronicle says 1500. Is this intended or is it a typo and should I change the chronicle to reflect what's written in the scenario?
