A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–4.

The PCs take part in an investigation after an Absalom Station pawnbroker tries to sell the Starfinder Society a lethal biotech augmentation. The search leads into the depths of the station's Freemarkets and into another investigation initiated by AbadarCorp. With rumors abound of mysterious disappearances near the Freemarkets and that those people using the augmentations are suffering from a mysterious illness, it falls to the PCs to piece together what's going on. Where is this never-before-seen biotech coming from, and what happens when the augmented dead don't stay dead?

Entertaining and quirky

****( )

The scenario is entertaining with an interesting plot. The overall difficulty is low but the scenario is well paced for newer players.


Fun little mystery scenario, brought down by spoilers

****( )

So the scenario works well as a whodoneit. Starts off with the society chasing some new top-of-the-line biotech, nothing reality-breaking, but cool enough to be with the the society looking into. The reasons for investigating are solid, the checks make sense for the location, for detectives and bounty-hunter style characters, it’s great.

The big problem with the zombies is that it is ruined by the scenario title and the blurb. Because if the zombies weren’t advertised, then it would be a great jumpscare and make the scenario much more effective, but since we all knew it was coming, it was just kind of ‘When is the half-alive part going to show up?’

If they had just renamed the scenario to something like “The mystery of the perfect hand,” or something, so that it could come as a surprise. I realize that is metagaming, but knowing something is coming means you can’t be shocked by it, no matter how hard you try. As is, still a solid adventure.


Pretty good zombie scenario

****( )

Its good scenario for newbies and easy to run and backstory is also pretty tragic. I think it actually works best if players don't know name of scenario, zombie thing coming as surprise is really fun :D

I hope this "Absalom Station pawnbroker" is the same one from Into the Unknown--recurring NPCs are great . . .

Thursty confirmed on Facebook that it's the same character! :D

That NPC was a popular one. He is available to my players as a resource in the Dead Suns AP, because we ran Into the Unknown as a campaign intro adventure.

Any Tags for this one?

As a related suggestion: Could something like "Starfinder Society Scenario Tags: None" be added to the listing for scenarios without tags? That would make it easier to tell if there are no tags vs the information has been added yet.

Starfinder Society Developer

No tags on this scenario. We're uploading tags with scenario descriptions now. So if none are listed, that means the scenario doesn't have any tags.
