Starfinder Society, From the Streets to the Stars!

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

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?

Starfinder Society #1-10: The Half-Alive Streets written by Mara Lynn Butler, is our first scenario release in March. This scenario takes us back to Absalom Station at a lower level range and provides some additional introductory friendly content for newer Starfinder Society players. What I enjoyed most about this scenario is that Mara Lynn included scenes that really focus on the personal lives of some of Absalom Station's inhabitants and gives some really touching moments for the PCs to get involved in. Also, this scenario has some callbacks to previous scenarios, with a few fan-favorite NPCs making their return. I know that at least one of these NPCs is obvious, but I think players will be surprised to see a second (maybe) friendly face show up during this adventure.

This scenario has no tags.

Our second scenario (still getting used to that) is Starfinder Society #1-11: In Pursuit of the Scoured Past by Pathfinder Society veteran author, Cole Kronewitter. Cole's had some experience working with Hellknights, and when we decided this scenario was going to introduce some Hellknights into Starfinder Society, we knew that he'd be an excellent fit to write it! Along with Hellknights, this scenario also continues the ongoing narrative of the Year of Scoured Stars, and it acts as the second installment in our ongoing major story arc that started with Starfinder Society #1-05: The First Mandate. Finally, this scenario introduces a new locale that I really think encapsulates the theme of Science-Fantasy: the library world of Athaeum. I suspect scholarly PCs (and a certain scholarly ysoki who tags along with them) will find themselves overwhelmed by the specific information kept within the towers of this mysterious world.

This scenario has the Faction (Second Seekers [Luwazi Elsebo]) tag and contributes to the ongoing year of the Scoured Stars storyline.

Next month is looking to provide a similar spread of scenario types. First off, we have a new repeatable introductory scenario that includes starship combat. Next month's other release is the third part in the ongoing Scoured Stars storyline that also includes a very special starship encounter. Expect to see a preview post on these scenarios sometime in April. Next week, get ready to hear about our future plans for the Starfinder Society, when we unveil our Origins offerings and provide some further information on our first interactive special.

Now, it's time for me to get back to work and work on some of our future scenarios!

These look very interesting. So, will there be any hints on where Starfinder Society will go next year? There is much to explore, as well as drawing on the settings past.

"Wait, wait, wait! We're going on a mission with ol' 'Patches' himself. I am sure we'll have plenty to talk about!" says a certain ysoki fixer.

"So, is there much opportunity for smuggling on Athaeum?"

With starfinder being such a success, does that mean we can expect official figures sometime soon?

The writers are KILLING IT on loyalty bonuses for those who've paid attention to the NPCs and lore breadcrumbs along the way. I'm so impressed and absolutely loving my time in SFS.

Agreed, I absolutely love how each scenario either calls back to an old one or helps set up a future one. I don't think I can count a single scenario (besides maybe the first one) that doesn't call back to at least one another scenario. I love it, it's great.
