New Scenarios: New Discoveries and Ongoing Investigations

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

This April the Organized Play team releases our next set of Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild scenarios. I wanted to take a moment to highlight these two unique scenarios.

Starfinder Society #1-12: Ashes of Discovery written by Pathfinder Society veteran Crystal Malarsky and John Laffan, is our second Tier 1-4 repeatable scenario. The team knew we wanted another repeatable scenario early on to help new players have sufficient content to play alongside our growing stable of veterans. One element that was missing from our previous repeatable was the presence of a starship combat, so we made sure to include one in this adventure. This encounter should provide more introductory starship encounters for new players interested in dipping their feet into some of Starfinder’s more unique rules. Another element of this scenario that has me particularly excited is that it serves as a launching point for countless adventures, and while it doesn’t connect with some of our grander story arcs, it serves to set-up new relationships between the Starfinder Society and several Pact Worlds organizations.

This scenario has the Repeatable and Starship tags.

Our next scenario continues the ongoing Scoured Stars storyline, Starfinder Society #1-13: On the Trail of History by another Pathfinder veteran, Christopher Wasko. It’s hard to say much about this scenario without spoiling some of the events from last month’s Scoured Stars event, Starfinder Society #1-11: In Pursuit of the Scoured Past. What I can say, is that this is a story that goes back to some of the root of what sets Starfinder apart. Exploring a new world and interacting with new cultures, all while fighting against external threats that could bring the entire mission to an abrupt end! Another interesting tidbit, is that this scenario is the first that started connecting to our upcoming interactive special, Starfinder Society #1-99: The Scoured Stars Invasion. I know for a fact that Christopher and Mikko were thick as thieves in their dealings while writing their respective adventures, and some of the story connections are sure paying off as I sit here developing the interactive.

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

Next month’s scenarios involve some kind of sugar pop band that people seem keen about and a lovely gala event where nothing can possibly go wrong (SAVE THE RENKRODAS!)

Now, it’s time for me to get back to interactive special development!

As someone who got into PFS a couple years ago, being on the ground floor of the Starfinder Society story is insanely satisfying. I'm loving the build of this arc and so pumped for it to explode into whatever the next turn of longterm events are. Viva la Elsebo!

Wait. Hold the presses. This your SECOND Tier 1-4 repeatable scenario? What is your other Tier 1-4 repeatable? Have I missed one?

Hmm

For those interested I created a google doc for GM prep for 1-12. Mild spoilers ahead:

Spoiler:
Scenario 1-12 involves the GM making up their own aliens by rolling on tables. If you don’t feel like doing that, here is a document of some sample ‘aliens’ you could use from pop culture. Enjoy!

I just wanted to share one of Strawberry Machine Cake’s most recent songs!

For some reason, they sure like writing about the Scoured Stars Incident!
