There's a lot to talk about this blog, so we're just going to jump right into the exciting set of releases coming out in just a few weeks.

Starfinder Society Scenario #1-18: The Blackmoon Survey, by Paizo veteran Jesse Benner, showcases the Starfinder Society's first foray to the undead world of Eox. When Starfinder agents and undead workers start disappearing from a Starfinder-operated excavation site near the infamous Blackmoon mountain, it's up to the PCs to make the trip to Eox and uncover what's happening. This Tier 1-4 scenario involves heavy investigation along with some interesting encounter set-ups that the Organized Play team is very curious to hear reactions about.

This scenario has no special scenario tags.

The second July scenario is our second venture into the (currently) lofty heights of Tier 5-8. You might recognize Matt Duval's name from several prominent Pathfinder Society Scenarios, and he did an excellent job putting together Starfinder Society Scenario #1-19: To Conquer the Dragon[/url]. Sometimes, I tend to obfuscate what happens during the course of a scenario, but I think that this particular entry might be just a little bit self-explanatory. I mean, sometimes the PCs just need to punch a dragon in its smug face. Also, there's some extra special bonus lore points for PCs who come into this scenario having played Starfinder Society Scenario #1-13: On the Trail of History.

This scenario has the starship tag.

Our next Gen Con release (technically an August release, but who's counting?) is a return to a fan favorite. Starfinder Society Scenario #1-20: Duskmire Accord 9 is a pretty unique Tier 1-4 scenario that resumes the Society's ongoing exploration of the megacomplex known as Salvation's End. The scenario's author, Brian Duckwitz, maintained the ongoing momentum that the campaign has had with its exploration of Salvation's End. I don't want to say too much about this scenario, but I think it's ok to just let the art speak for itself.

This scenario has no special scenario tags.

Finally, Gen Con has us return to a world we haven't set foot on since last year: the ghibrani homeworld of Elytrio. Written by Paizo's own, Jason Keeley, Starfinder Society Scenario #1-21: Yesteryear's Sorrow directly follows up on events from Starfinder Society Scenario #1-03: Yesteryear's Truth. The results from countless tables were tabulated to decide the future of the ghibrani people, and that future gets a bit of a push in this scenario… along with a heavy look into the past of what has become a fan-favorite species in Starfinder! Be aware that playing the previous scenario is not required, and in fact, this scenario was intentionally written so it could be equally enjoyed by characters who haven't previously interacted or learned about the ghibranis.

This scenario has the Faction (Exo-Guardians) tag.

That's it for our new releases at Gen Con 2018! This covers both the July and August releases for the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild, but rest assured that the team is hard at work on future scenarios. As for now, I'm going to get back to working on sanctioning the upcoming Starfinder Armory and the first installment of our upcoming Against the Aeon Throne adventure path. No rest for the wicked it seems…

Until next time,

Are the remaining chapters of Dead Suns going to get sanctioned too? Is someone else working on that, or is it being put after the Aeon Throne sanctioning?

I was looking at that picture and thinking, "Is that a unicorn with a Warhammer 40K bolt rifle strapped to its head?"

And, barring copyright infringement, I appear to have been correct.

That's super metal.

Anyway, my dwarf fighter/cleric/thief (sorry, soldier/mystic/operative)will be excited to head back home to Salvation's End and check on her neighbors.

I keep wanting to read the first scenario as "Blackrose Survey", and think 'They Survived!?'.

So, I shoved my -702 Shirren Star Shaman mystic into a cocoon for a bit because several mystics showed up as regulars at Dreamers, and I had other characters to play. However, this means that Cosmo, who played the first Ghibrani episode, will be able to play the sequel.

Man, am I ever looking forward to this!

Hmm

Will there be an announcement when it goes live? I am so excited for this, and for the upcoming Against the Aeon Throne!

So, I ran Duskmire Accords over the weekend, and giddly exclaimed to the party "best encounter ever" and when they deduced there was possibly a unicorn in the area they were curious.
Then when i showed them the pictures, they all laughed for a minute straight. Who'd be able to fight a UNICORN WITH A GRENADE LAUNCHER?! Who'd want to?

Props to Graey, and i want to see Sparklemane as a Venture-Agent.
