June 2022 Scenario Previews

The Drift is malfunctioning, Triune has fallen silent, and countless citizens of the Pact Worlds are lost to the chaos! Amid this upheaval, Fitch and numerous Starfinder volunteers trawl Pact Worlds space aboard the Master of Stars, searching for survivors in need of aid, derelict starships, Drift debris to investigate, and clues that might shed light on the source of the Drift Crisis itself. When a starship belonging to an ally of the Society is discovered immobile and powerless, Fitch dispatches a team of Starfinders to investigate. But the PCs’ simple quest to check in on a friend quickly becomes a rescue mission that will take them far beyond starship corridors to an annexed Drift beacon and the metaphorical doorstep of the mysterious “4th.” Starfinder Society Scenario #5-04: Fragment of the 4th is a scenario for levels 9–12 by Isis Wozniakowska.

Starfinder Society: Year 5 Announcement

In the aftermath of the Data Scourge, the Starfinder Society fractures along faction lines! Infighting, power grabs, and suspicion run rampant, all threatening to tear the Society apart. Faced with the past mistakes of the Society, the betrayal and heinous crimes of former Starfinders, the grievances of active agents, and the weakening of external alliances, First Seeker Ehu Hadif embarks on a year of change. He opens the floor to all agents, giving them a platform to voice concerns, plans, and ambitions, and lobby for change. New factions are founded, reforms are enacted, relationships are mended, and trust is tentatively reforged.

February Scenario Previews

This month we’re back on the trail of legendary explorer Jelev Rasheen! Well known for her voyages at the dawn of Drift travel, Jelev made regular trips into the Drift, returning every few years with holds full of treasures and relics from distant worlds. After her mysterious disappearance, dozens of alleged children, partners, and adventuring companions spread one final tale about Rasheen: that she was last seen commanding a fleet of ships laden with treasure. Over the years, the Starfinder Society has investigated two of Jelev Rasheen’s treasure beacons, and now they’ve discovered a third. So buckle up and blast off, Starfinders! There’s treasure out there! Starfinder Society Scenario #4-14: Rasheen’s Riches is a scenario for levels 7–10 written by Mara Lynn Butler.

December Society Previews

This month, it’s all about the holidays! At the urging of a cheery raxilite, the Starfinders perform good deeds to spread cheer during three popular Pact Worlds holidays: First Choices, Newspark, and Reunion. First Choices is a shirren diaspora celebration where celebrants share their personal achievements and interests through gift giving. Newspark is a holiday first commemorated by androids to celebrate hope in dark times, known today for its extravagant parades. Finally, Reunion is an Akitonian holiday focused on sharing food and strengthening bonds of love, family, and friendship. Starfinder Society Scenario #4-12: A Festive Operation is a repeatable scenario for levels 3–6 written by Ivis K. Flanagan. I hope this adventure brings joy and laughter to your gaming tables this month!

November Scenario Previews

This month, First Seeker Ehu Hadif dispatches Starfinders to Eborth, a planet claiming to possess technology immune to the Data Scourge, which they’ll share in exchange for Pact Worlds protectorate status. Alongside representatives from the Stewards and the Xenowardens, the Starfinders serve as envoys tasked with reviewing the world’s petition. On the record, the Starfinders are concerned with examining Eborth’s archaeological sites for clues to the planet’s past, but behind the scenes, the Starfinders must determine if the claims regarding Eborth’s technology are true. With the fate of both Eborth and the Pact Worlds hanging in the balance, there’s sure to be more going on than meets the eye! Starfinder Society Scenario #4-11: A World’s Ambition is a scenario for levels 7–10 written by Matt Duval.

It all started when Starfinder launched and John Compton (lead of Organized Play development at the time) kept threatening me with a “Time Capsule Boon” where he’d let Pathfinder Society Characters transition into Starfinder Society. It was something of the atomic bomb equivalent of threats to be uttered in the office. The idea of crossing the streams between the campaigns was ludicrous. LUDICROUS, I SAY!

Introducing Starfinder Society Year 4

It’s time for the Starfinder Society to rally together against a mysterious new threat! A series of digital attacks unleashed simultaneously across the Pact Worlds throws the system’s status quo into chaos, leaving an opening for an army of unidentified robotic attackers to storm the Lorespire Complex on Absalom Station. Can the Starfinders defend their headquarters while navigating the technological pandemonium caused by this Data Scourge, discover who or what is behind these attacks, and stop them from destroying the Pact Worlds as we know it?

Starfinder Society November Previews

“You have sixty seconds to eject your stolen cargo before my gunners blast you out of the sky,” Brigadier Tassada Kor barks into the comms, watching the battle from her position on the bridge. The decorated vesk officer commands the dreadnought Talon’s Razor, crewed by 435 stalwart souls loyal to the Veskarium, and she did not tolerate pirates in her corner of space. The targets of her ire, three smaller ships darting and wheeling in the viewport in front of her, spit lasers as they arced close before speeding out of range of her vessel’s firing arcs. The Razor’s hull shakes violently, sparks raining into the black as enemy weapons slam into the shields. Tenacious opponents, Tassada admired them for it, but their insolence must end. When Tassada directed her crew to the outskirts of Veskarium space to investigate reports of piracy, she unintentionally kicked a hornets’ nest of smugglers and their mercenary escorts. The vessels in her crosshairs now were the last of the ragtag armada challenging the Talon’s Razor.

Meanwhile, we kick-off our high-level series of adventures with Kendra Leigh Speedling’s Starfinder Society #3-08: Fleeting Truth: The Darkside Depository, which begins an investigation into a thread of the Society’s history and that has wider implications for the entire Starfinder setting!

Honor Demands It

We're approaching the end of a glorious Starfinder Society year, and we wanted to make sure we ended December with a narrative bang. It's amazing to look back at everything we've accomplished. Not only did 2018 kick off with our introduction to morlamaws (yes, it's really only been a year), but it's also featured reality television events, much-anticipated pop concerts, and wildlife benefit fundraisers. We also saw the return of an ancient starship from Pathfinder Society, debuted Starfinder Society's first multi-table interactive special, and scaled up to two scenarios a month. Needless to say, it's been a busy year, and that calls for some more fun adventures.

Origins—Launching into a New Starfinder Society Season

From the first, the organized play team envisioned Starfinder Society as a stand-alone campaign. So when discussing season rotation, we looked for a way to give the event spotlight focus. Putting the launch at Gen Con would overload the team and possibly diminish the impact of the Pathfinder Society season rotation. So we looked to another large event that would have the scope to handle a season premier. Origins Game Faire, June 13-17 in Columbus, Ohio, met our desires. Thus we brought Origins under the umbrella of Paizo-organized conventions. But not only Starfinder Society benefits from the expanded Paizo focus. It also brings an opportunity to play Version C of the Solstice Scar ongoing interactive event and the chance to participate in some Pathfinder Playtest demos. Another benefit is added rewards for GMs, namely store credit for the paizo.com webstore, volunteer t-shirts, and a copy of a Pathfinder or Starfinder hardcover book, in addition to rewards offered in previous years such as hotel rooms and boons.

So, without any further rambling on my part, how about we take a peek at the March releases?

We're Gonna Start a New Life, Under the Sea

I'm the first to admit that when I first read the Starfinder Core Rulebook, I quirked an eyebrow at some of the environmental protections armor offers. Coming from other RPGs, it was clear that Starfinder had a different concept of what environmental hazards should challenge PCs. When it came time to outline Starfinder Society #1-08: Sanctuary of Drowned Delight, I discovered that Starfinder armor provided a plethora of opportunities for adventuring in environments often reserved for higher-level play in other games. So, despite being a Tier 3-6 scenario, this month's scenario is going underwater!
