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.

November 2018 Starfinder Society Releases

November's a cold month up here in the wilds of Canada, and as I developed this month's scenarios, I found that I developed a growing obsession with them. While I didn't quite grow a beard or batter down any doors with axes, I certainly came to appreciate this month's scenarios for the important plot elements they introduce into the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild. So, let's dive in!

October 2018 Starfinder Society Releases

October brings with it all manner of spooky gifts! While this month's Starfinder releases may not as overtly spooky in nature as some past releases, I can assure you that both scenarios involve some scenes that scream for GMs to ramp up the tension. Let's dive into this month's offerings.

New Scenarios: Renkroda Heartlove!!!

Whew! With Origins 2018 only days behind us, I wanted to take some time to talk about the scenarios that just had a pre-release at that event and will be coming out this month. Unlike most releases, this month consists of three new Starfinder Society products, although one of them is a unique event and isn't available for open play just yet.

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.

Starfinder Society, From the Streets to the Stars!

March sees some major changes for the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild. This month, we transition to two scenarios per month—after all, we can't lag behind the adventure path line switching to one adventure per month! Luckily, the organized play team had contingencies for Starfinder's rampant success, and many of the stories we want to tell were based on a potential two scenario per month rollout. 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!

Starfinder Society Chronicle, Updates from the Organized Play Team

Back in mid-October, Starfinder Society Developer Thurston Hillman gave a sneak peak into Starfinder Alien Archive and the organized play team's plans to introduce more alien species as player character options. We put our heads together and developed the Mega-Region plan!

We Were Professionals... Civilized!

This month sees the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild release its first Tier 3-6 scenario: Starfinder Society #1-06: A Night in Nightarch. Adventure Path author and overall prolific freelancer, Mikko Kallio, stepped up to the plate to tackle this first foray into higher level Starfinder play. I had the pleasure of working alongside Mikko on the Ruins of Azlant and War for the Crown Adventure Paths, and I knew from that point that I wanted to bring him onboard for Starfinder Society.

Enter the Social Arena

The Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild is kicking its campaign storyline into overdrive with this month's scenario, Starfinder Society Scenario #1-05: The First Mandate. This scenario is the first in an unofficial multi-part series of adventures that slowly peels back some of the mystery surrounding the Scoured Stars incident. Of course, any good mystery needs a strong cast, and this month's scenario also introduces several new important NPCs to the campaign.

Only Your Fellow Players Can Hear You Scream in Space

With the Gen Con launch behind us, it's time to start jumping into our monthly scenario previews. I'm exceptionally excited to talk about Starfinder Society #1-04: Cries from the Drift. This is a scenario I think a lot of people (especially Exo-Guardians) will be talking about, as it includes several plot points we've only hinted at in our initial scenarios.

That's No Boon...

Gen Con's only about a week away—I'm sure my colleagues' fainting away is out of sheer excitement—and Paizo's organized play team is bringing a huge amount of new content to debut. It's too much to share all in one blog, so we're saving our six new scenarios (three Pathfinder Society and three Starfinder Society) for next week and starting off with our special events.
