New April 2019 Starfinder Society Scenarios
Wednesday, March 20, 2019
With only two months left before we reach the upcoming conclusion for Starfinder Society's inaugural season, the team is excited to preview our upcoming scenarios. April brings us a new Tier 1-4 scenario following up on a past (repeatable) adventure and a Tier 5-8 scenario that brings a certain faction's ongoing effort to a conclusion.
First off, let's hear from Organized Play Lead Developer John Compton to talk about what's in store for our first scenario.
Starfinder Society's success stems in large part from the ease with which the setting folds in modern touchstones like reality TV, corporate mischief, rock bands, and nature conservancy. These themes, along with classic sci-fi tropes of exploring new worlds, meeting weird aliens, and making pew-pew sounds during starship combat, brought us a wealth of stories over these past two years. Yet there is at least one adventure concept that Pathfinder Society's mastered that is less represented in Starfinder: the dungeon. For the Tier 1-4 adventure Starfinder Society Scenario #1-36: Enter the Ashen Asteroid, we wanted the opportunity to explore a small site with big implications, all the while providing a fun break from the ongoing Scoured Stars storyline to explore the Pact Worlds.
Fortunately, veteran author Larry Wilhelm was raring to go, creating an abandoned duergar complex hidden within the Diaspora. The dwarven mining consortium, Ulrikka Clanholdings, began excavating the asteroid AA-126D only to find the unholy iconography of Droskar, the exiled god of cheating, slavery, and toil. Although they'd normally obliterate the site, a longstanding contract with the Starfinder Society (facilitated by Venture-Captain Thromkendal) grants the Society a brief window to survey sites like these, identify any critical archaeological context, and make recommendations regarding further action. But there's far more than dusty halls and barren stone resting under this asteroid's surface, and it will take all the PCs' mettle to make it out!
Our second April scenario is one I'm particularly excited to highlight! Starfinder Society #1-37: Siege of Civility is a partial sequel to another siege-related scenario. Written by Kalervo Oikarinen, this higher-level scenario introduces us to a new civilization within Near Space, one that the PCs may have tangled with in the past. A social scenario at its core, Siege of Civility offers PCs a chance to influence a swathe of new NPCs and at least one familiar (and not necessarily friendly) face! Finally, I think everyone should be happy to know that successfully completing this scenario is going to bring a certain Wayfinders project to the finish line, just in time for what's coming up.
With that, we've got the Starfinder Society Season One's last month to look forward to. The culmination of over a year of effort comes to fruition as we enter the last two scenarios before a climactic interactive special. If you're interested in the evolving relationship between two popular faction leaders, or the first punch in the all-star bout that's going to take us back to the Scoured Stars for one last mission... well, be sure to stop by next month!
