This is part of Gameday VII and will run in the first session. Startday will be August 15th.
This is a couple of days after the start of Gameday VII to get the initial rush out of the way.

A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1-4.

When a major Pact Worlds organization approaches the Starfinder Society about investigating an abandoned outpost in Near Space, the PCs get assigned to the case. Travelling to a distant world, surmounting dangerous threats in the void of space, and meeting new alien cultures—this mission is about everything the Starfinder Society embodies.

Ashes of Discovery is a replayable scenario designed to help introduce players to what it's like to be a member of the Starfinder Society. With randomized mechanical and story elements, when you play this scenario, you'll never play the same scenario twice.

Expected posting rate will be roughly once a day with me reserving the right to NPC your character in if you haven't posted in 24 hours since the last post made to keep the flow going and the game moving forward.

Hi there! I'll be bringing my level one death-touched mystic!

Scarab Sages

Welcome Dethara.

I was starting to wonder if anyone was going to show up for this game ;).

Dataphiles

I have this death-touched operative that should be available then, if we want to keep with the theme!

Dataphiles

Ha! Awesome!


Would love to play, will make up a PC tomorrow


Let me sign up with the pre-gen Obozaya, if that is ok. Posting will be iffy the first days, as I am still on holidays then and travelling, but fine from the 17th on.

Exo-Guardians

Much as others might wish him death-touched, he isn't...even Pharasma doesn't want him anywhere near her. May I present Zapp Brannigan, the Man with no Name!

Zapp is a level one envoy with an adventure under his belt. He comes complete with Kif and his personality can be toned down on request.

Dataphiles

Ok, decided on an mechanic, stats to follow, but am on holidays. Will probably just use the pre-gen stats of the Ysoki mechanics. On holidays and not so much access to internet....

Scarab Sages

Welcome everyone, by my count that makes..4, right?

Feel free to dot into discussion and gameplay if you haven't already so you'll see any updates/have a reminder on where to go once the game starts

Just for my information; did anyone already play this scenario? (and if yes, could you post a spoiler block with what you remember as having already encountered so I can filter those options out. I assume that people would prefer to meet something new.)

Exo-Guardians

Glad to be aboard!

Already played before:
If I remember correctly, I've encountered aliens made of energy and rock people the last times.

Dataphiles

GM:
I have played it with the installation being from the Skyfire Mandate, the aliens were dragon like and very musical. Uh... The space battle was against a creature we never managed to identify. I think they respected the space creature. If I missed any variables let me know.

Dataphiles

Hello, is there still one slot free?

I never played SFS, but PFS. I created a PC anyway.

Scarab Sages

@Mec-01; as far as I know (or at least can count) there are at most 4 other players, so if you want a spot; it's yours

Dataphiles

Thank you. I should inform you that I will be perhaps away on the 15th and 16th August because of PFS/SFS conv here. Let's see if I manage to connect anyway.

I don't know how to appear in the players and characters cases.

Dataphiles

To appear on the character and player list, and to have this campaign show up in your 'Campaigns' tab, just scroll up to the top and click on the 'Gameplay' thread. Then make a post as the character you'll be using. (It can be anything). If it's an introductory post you can leave it there. If it's gibberish, just delete it afterwards.

Scarab Sages

I wanted to start a few days after the start of the gameday so that everyone (including me) would get the initial rush out of the way, but if PeteZero and Mec-01 both are going to be less available till the 17th I'll just relax my 1 post a day expected posting rate till say..the 18.

We'll still start and if everyone can post that's great..but otherwise we'll just start of more relaxed and wait for everyone to catch up before going ahead full steam (or nuclear power - whichever the case might be)

Acquisitives

If there's still a spot open I'd like to jump in with Dalinar here.

Scarab Sages

@Dalinar; that makes you number 6. Welcome aboard. I'll let the Powers That Be know that we're full now.

Dataphiles

Well, I've to go to a wedding on the 18th. I know, it's a bit busy these days. But I think I can post on the 13th, 14th, perhaps 15th and/or 16th, 17th. The 18th will be difficult.
Then I should be able to post in the evening (I'm in Europe).

Acquisitives

Cool thanks. I have also played this before. I remember

Spoiler:
We started off with a starship battle against a giant shark thingy. On the surface we met a bunch of 7 legged aliens who told us where the clanholding was and that they had exiled one of their people recently. We walked across an area with stone rain and found the guy who was exiled. We think anyway, we weren't able to communicate well so he may have just been one of them who wasn't exiled. Inside we fought a few rock creatures and another one of the aliens, who may have been the exile. We discovered that the original owners of the place were killed by some creature that they set free on accident. They somehow got it back into its hole and re sealed it.

Dataphiles

This PC is awaiting a chronicle, which will make him 2nd level. I expect to have it in hand soon, so he should be ready to go.

GM:
I have played this scenario four times previously, although this PC has a few tricks that my PCs in the prior run didn't have access too--okay, just one trick mainly, the vampire voice necrograft, which allows him to Intimidate without language barriers.

He also doesn't wear armor, which will likely be an issue in this scenario (although he has the blackheart necrograft to help with that).

This PC has the AbadarCorp Annoyance boon, although they may a non-issue.

Finally, I am scheduled to play a scenario with this PC in October, in case that is an issue.

Scarab Sages

@Harrowed Jack:
With October you mean scheduled for the second part of the gameday? I expect to finish before then..but that will depend mostly on the posting rate of the (other) players (and dice rolls..if you guys don't manage to hit anything for 3-4 rounds in a row it does tend to slow down the game a bit ;) . I do tend to finish a scenario in 4-6 weeks...so I expect to finish before the second half of the gameday, but I can't give a 100% certainty.

If you want to switch this character out for another one, make a new one/play a pregen or even if you want to drop out of the game....I'm fine with any of those. And otherwise we'll just do our best to finish on time.

Dataphiles

@ Revvy Bitterleaf:
I am fine with this character and can switch things up if it looks like this PC won't be available for GD Pt. 2
