Season 0-2 faction missions Question


Pathfinder Society GM Discussion

Sovereign Court **

I have a question about the season 0-2 faction missions.

The faction missions have two objectives that need to be done, but sense you only get one PP for doing these, would it be possible to split them up so each faction gets there own mission? (instead of newer factions sharing one with an old one)Of course some missions would need some re-writing and a little bit of creative dm work, (and maybe stuff added) but i think it would be better for the players, who are often disappointed in the older scenarios that do not give them individual missions.

Is this possible?

The way I understand this is that, in the earlier season scenarios, if you complete both faction missions you receive 2PP (one for each completed faction mission). With the older factions sharing the faction mission with one of the younger factions, it gives those factions sharing missions a better chance of completing them successfully (unless I am wrong).

As far as making changes to the faction missions so each faction gets their own mission, I am sure this is possible but not legal due to the requirement to run the scenarios as written.

Please note that I am still learning the ropes and I may be wrong in this information. So please do not take my answer as the final answer. I am sure someone will either determine this is correct or let us both know what the answer is to your question. I hope this helps.

You get one PP for completing each faction mission; simply completing the main mission of the scenario awards no PP.

There are two key reasons not to do this:

1. You should run the scenarios the way they're written, i.e. everybody gets two faction missions in this case.

2. Generally, each faction has one easy mission and one hard one. The player who gets given the difficult one is probably not going to be that pleased.

If players don't like teaming up with other factions, they're best off sticking to season 3 and season 4, or all playing the original five factions.
