February 2019 Starfinder Society Releases

Friday, February 22, 2019

February's scenarios begin the lovely countdown to what I like to call "Convention Season" which, for the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild, really kicks off at Origins. Luckily, February's scenarios also provide an excellent new recruitment option to our GMs in the field, and a scenario that continues a plotline many players have (rather vocally) expressed interest in. So, how about we dig into this month's scenarios!

Starfinder Society #1-32: Acts of Association, like many scenarios, is the brainchild of a conversation Organized Play Lead Developer John Compton and I had during the course of a meeting. The Starfinder Society runs missions on far-off planets all the time, so it stands to reason that they would need to negotiate contracts and treaties to allow for such exploration, right? This month's first scenario is a repeatable scenario that delves into what the Society needs to do to secure some of those agreements. With randomized missions and a randomized visiting dignitary, Acts of Association provides a whole lot of replayability and what I expect to be even more memorable stories as a result of these randomized elements. Written by rising freelancer, Scott Young (who also wrote Pathfinder Society #10-03: Death on the Ice and contributed to Pathfinder Society #9-16: Fallen Family, Broken Name) I suspect this scenario is going to be the cause of a lot of stories that I'll be hearing about in the upcoming "Convention Season."

Our second February scenario, Starfinder Society #1-33: Data Breach, brings us back to an investigation that's been happening all season long. Players and GMs alike may want to brush up on the events of Starfinder Society #1-07: The Solar Sortie and Starfinder Society #1-14: Star Sugar Heartlove!!! before tackling Data Breach, which follows the ongoing investigation into a conspiracy against the Society. Written by Pathfinder Adventure Path and scenario veteran alike, Jim Groves (who has a bibliography too long for me to link), I was astonished at some of the excellent encounter mechanics included in this scenario. For players who want a different type of scenario challenge, all taking place with the backdrop of breaking into a high-security data facility, Jim's got you covered! On a more personal note, it's been great to see some of the story arcs coming together, and I am exceptionally excited to see the reactions of players after playing this scenario as it leads into the upcoming Starifnder Society #1-38: The Many Minds of Historia.

That about does it for February's releases. Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we begin to reveal more Starfinder Society information, as well as more scenario previews. I have it on good authority that next month we'll be getting a much better look at our good friends, the jinsuls. I've also heard that the Starfinder Society, specifically one Radaszam, might have come into possession of a treasure map that needs some following up on…

Until next time,

Extra Special Bonus Blog Points: As a heads up, for #1-33: Data Breach, we'll be including two copies of a custom map that use a 1 square = 10 ft and 1 square = 5 ft. (smaller squares) to see how the community reacts to this. I'll be curious to get some reactions next week when the scenario hits!

That last photo(?) crosses the uncanny valley for me.

There's a PFS NPC that truly is my spitting image, too. I think I used it as an avatar at some point.

Any notes on the art featured with the blog? I *think* I can identify one of them...

Spoilers are spoilery:

The filename of the photo is a spoiler; https://paizo.com/image/content/StarfinderSociety/20190222-HiraLanzio.jpg

That's Hira Lanzio in street clothes and sans MIB sunglasses. The surprising part is his brown eye, though I'm still convinced he's Azlanti. I earlier assumed the glasses with the purple highlights were to conceal his heritage.
