January 2019 Starfinder Society Releases
Thursday, January 24, 2019
With the month of January a whole new year begins, but we're still making our way through the final months of Starfinder Society's first season. I'm excited that this month starts a very real countdown of sorts to our end-of-season finale interactive special. While the team isn't quite ready to start talking about our second interactive (more later, I promise) there are some major scenarios coming up this month that start us towards our season's end.
Let me start by saying, that despite its name, Starfinder Society Scenario #1-30: Survivor's Salvation is not a scenario that continues the story of Salvation's End (though we'll be going back to that place in due time). Author, Kiel Howell, presented this scenario to the organized play team as an exploration into something that we've got a lot of questions about since the events of the Scoured Stars: how Starfinders cope with the stresses of their occupation. Called by Zigvigix to investigate the disappearance of a fellow Exo-Guardian who spent the better part of a year within the Scoured Stars, the PCs get to see some topics addressed that we don't tend to see in our typical scenarios. Now, it wouldn't be a real scenario without a threat and a bit of a sci-fi twist to things, so for those more interested in pulling out laser guns and shooting at threats… well, Kiel's got you covered!
Onto our second scenario!
Continuing to explore the repercussions of the Scoured Stars, Starfinder Society Scenario #1-31: Treading History's Folly has the PCs retrace the steps of First Seeker Jadnura, returning to the site where he uncovered one of the mysterious Tear relics that would lead to the Society into the Scoured Stars. Vanessa Hoskins brings us a delightful look into Jadnura's past actions, as well as information that should delight those who've been following the Scoured Stars story over the course of our first season. There were moments when developing this scenario that I had chills from some of the information we were finally getting out into player and GM hands. Similarly, this scenario also goes on to remind people of a few other mysteries that we intend to showcase over the remaining months leading up to our finale interactive.
To further spur on our contingent of dedicated Starfinder conspiracy theorists, let me share one other lovely new piece of art. I can honestly say it's going to factor in quite a bit over the course of our coming scenarios. Whatever could it be?
Alrighty, that's it for January's release! As I write this, I'm going through development on February's scenarios and am already excited to talk about those. Though next month won't continue the Scoured Stars story as much as this month, I'm excited on some of the other storylines we get to follow-up on. Expect to hear back from me in a month with an update on the Dataphiles ongoing efforts and the appearance of a well-known Dead Suns Adventure Path character asking the PCs for help with a bit of a diplomatic endeavor.
Until next time,
