Chronicle Sheets for Starfinder AP


Starfinder General Discussion


I know this is most likely in the wrong forum, but it didn't look like I had the ability to post in the Starfinder General forum.

I was wondering when we might expect to see chronicle sheets for the Starfinder AP become approved for Starfinder Society play. Do we think it will be similar to Pathfinder and we will need to wait 6 months-1 year before we can start running it for credit?

My wife just ordered me the 1st issue for Fathers Day and I am now jazzed about running it for folks!

According to the Society panel at PaizoCon, the sheets should come right as the books are released, mostly since each Starfinder AP volume is shorter than a Pathfinder one (about the length of a sanctioned portion of a PF AP, if I recall the wording correctly).

They also said that, because of the shorter length, there would not be a campaign mode, as that really only exists for PF APs and modules where just playing the sanctioned material doesn't give players the full story.

This is all, of course, subject to change, but it's the most recent thing I've heard.

We're aiming to have the first adventure sanctioned at release for Gen Con. Not 100% set in stone right now, but that's the goal (and one we're making good headway towards). :)

Don't most campaign mode modules usually have the entire book as sanctioned material? Outside of one case I can't think of anything else that doesn't give you the full story in either case.

Fair point on most of them. I've only gotten to do Dragon's Demand and Tears at Bitter Manor, but both felt like they had quite a bit more content than I would have expected if I had brought a PFS-legal PC. Perhaps it varies?

You're right about Dragon's Demand. The level range on that is pretty wide and honestly it probably should be run in campaign mode. I've ran later modules where the range is more compact.

With Modules you usually dont miss out a lot with just PFS sanctioned content, but with Adventure Paths, you miss out on a LOT.

So is this something where a group playing once a week could keep up with Starfinder AP released material?

If you can go through a Pathfinder AP book in 8 to 9 sessions, it should be easily possible for Starfnder AP as well I think.

The Exchange Owner - D20 Hobbies

The two different Pathfinder AP I've done took 1.5 to 2 years of 1 session a week. So 70 to 100 sessions. If these are half as long, that is 35 sessions to 50 sessions? But they might even be faster. I guess we won't know until we play them?
