PaizoCon 2019 Starfinder Society Scenarios

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

This is the month. Let's move past the endings of games and decisions on who's sitting on what thrones, as this month is the climax of Starfinder Society's (slightly extended) inaugural season. Today we're going to review the two scenarios that make up the ending our first season and set-up Starfinder Society going into an upcoming interactive special and its next season of play!

Paizo's own "live editor extreme!!!!" (as Zo! would say), Lyz Liddell, brings us an emotionally touching tale of adventure and intrigue in Starfinder Society #1-38: The Many Minds of Historia. You may remember Lyz and her work from Starfinder Society #1-05: The First Mandate, where she kicked off a lot of the ongoing Scoured Stars storyline. This Tier 5–8 scenario advances the storyline of two fan-favorite factions: the Dataphiles and the Exo-Guardians. It's hard to go into detail about this scenario without providing some significant spoilers, but I'll just say that if you're a member of either faction, this scenario is going to drastically influence how your faction plays out in the future. Suffice it to say, if you've been interested in certain popular events in the setting, or some other recent events, this scenario should be a stunning capstone adventure!

Next up, we have the author of last year's major interactive event, veteran freelancer Mikko Kallio, bringing us the momentous conclusion to our first season in Starfinder Society #1-39: The Herald's War. Developing—no, just reading—this Tier 7–10 scenario was a pure joy from my perspective as the season's architect (along with a ton of insight from John Compton and the rest of the Organized Play team). Bringing together a figurative ton worth of elements (enough to make a sidebar wheeze) throughout Starfinder Society's first season, this adventure really shines as the culmination of a story that's been told over the past 20 months. From a climactic space battle to squaring off against the most significant threat we've seen in an adventure so far, this scenario really sets the tone for what immediately follows—more on that event in the coming weeks!

With that, Starfinder Year 1 is complete, and we have our upcoming Year of a Thousand Bites to look forward to (nothing ominous there). I can't wait to see everyone who can make it out to PaizoCon this week, where the Organized Play team and I will reveal some new tidbits in our Starfinder Society panel! Also, attendees get a chance at playing the two previewed scenarios just a bit early, as they won't be available until the 29th of May.

As a final note on these two releases, I'd just like to say that more than any other scenarios, some Major events occur within these adventures. I'd like to ask our awesome community to keep these events under wraps—well, under spoiler tags—for the coming weeks, as I think some players want to experience these changes without knowing what's coming.

If you didn't see them already, consider taking a peek at the organized play blog posted this morning, detailing the Pathfinder Society releases for May, including a preview of Siege of Gallowspire!

Reading 01-39, you could call it momentous... It is like you get to play in a Star Wars movie.

Trust me, it is going to be an awesome experience... and will probably take close to the full 5 hours.
