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.

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.

solid scenario

****( )

It does several things well and while there are some things that could be better or done more intuitively, over all it is fun scenario that a lot of people at my local chapter/lodge are enjoying.


Good Play - Terrible Story line.

**( )( )( )

I love the characters, sure the names are kinda stero typical and bland, the Ysoke is called "livewire".

The blatant ideas stolen from other scifi movies is okay, but feel cheap, there is Chronicals of Riddick, Star Wars, and more.

and the ending, it's so jarring and painful I felt ripped off (and I was playing this without cost lol).

The combat is fun, I just find that the actual storyline is very bland, very unoriginal and in somecases very poorly written. For Example - the Audio logs of the crew are stored in a locker - but the Logs are from 6 different crew. The way the scenario puts it, the way they are found makes no sense at all. infact it's stupid.

Personally I will be rewritting alot of this when I run it, changing features like this to make greater sense. Finding a note or a diary with the comms systems passeword would make sense so you can then "download" the audio backups from the computer.

This scenario has alot of potential but I am sad to say the actual storyline really lets it down.


A strong start for Starfinder Society

****( )

This prevent special scenario gives Starfinder Society a great starting place! Exploration, weirdness, a little bit of ship combat, and an unexpected adversary at the end. We had s mixed group of characters and everyone got a chance to shine.

It is a pregen only special, which is in this case really cool: we get a chance to try out characters that have a few levels, where as in Starfinder Socierty organized play most of us can only play level 1 or maybe a level 2 if they're lucky.

Give it a shot! It's a great place to start.
