May 2020 Starfinder Society Releases

Thursday, May 21, 2020

For those that didn’t see today’s earlier blog, check out our Pathfinder Society releases for May.

First Seeker Luwazi Elsebo examined the datapad with a jubilant smile.

“It gives me great honor to confirm Zafeldrin’s appointment to the role of venture-captain.” Luwazi spoke aloud to the crew members diligently working their stations. “He’s worked hard on Triaxus, and there were no voices on the Forum opposing this appointment. Besides, it should be interesting to have a full-blooded dragon venture-captain in our ranks!”

A flash of holographic data stole Luwazi’s attention, bringing her back to the moment. She examined the data with a raised eyebrow before directly questioning the crew, “Still no signal or report from the asteroid?”

One of the science officers responded, “No, ma’am. The entire site seems eerily quiet. Should we send in the first wave of ships?”

Luwazi pondered the dangerous question as she reviewed one final addendum to the datapad. It appeared that Zafeldrin was already hoping to employ several groups of Starfinder field agents for a mission into the abandoned Triaxian region of Cadascon, a region known for its strange crystalline growths. A bold endeavor, and one that could surely expand the Society’s influence on Triaxus and perhaps skyrocket Zafeldrin’s influence.

“Good luck then...” Luwazi mused while approving the mission and stowing the datapad.

“Ma’am?” the science officer queried, unsure if Luwazi’s statement was a reply to his question.

Straightening in her command chair, Luwazi Elsebo directed her full attention to the officer, “Not yet. We’ll divide the ships into tactical assault groups and make sure that we go in together. This mission could put an end to Datch and her campaign against the Society, so I want it done correctly.”

“Understood!” the officer half-shouted a response, “I’ll get to re-organizing our ships immediately. Also, the senior field agents are on standby for their briefing in the requested meeting chamber.”

Almost leaping from her seat, Luwazi looked around the command deck of the ship, “Then I’ll leave the rest to all of you. I’ll go brief our premiere agents on this mission. When I return, we’ll begin the first phases of the operation.”

Taking a single step away from the command chair, Luwazi paused. With a smile, she half-turned and reached to a wooden container she had kept just under her console. Plucking one of many similar objects from the container, Luwazi strode to the nearest bridge exit.

Staring at the shiny red apple she had withdrawn from the basket, Luwazi flashed a devil’s smile.

“We’ve got you now, Datch.”

She took a bite.

We’ve got two new scenarios coming out in May, wrapping up the main arc of Starfinder Society’s Year of a Thousand Bites. Starting with Starfinder Society #2-23: Edge of Cadascon by Emily Parks, the PCs travel to the Pact World of Triaxus and take part in a major expedition to a mysterious region of the planet. In Starfinder Society #2-24: Cornered Rat by Mikko Kallio, the PCs take charge of an all-out assault on a hidden installation used by the nefarious ysoki mastermind, Datch. This important mission could put an end to the multimedia smear campaign used to besmirch the Starfinder Society throughout the Pact worlds!

Until next time,

Mikko Kallio writing the finale of the Datch story arc? Oooo, this is going to be good~

I'd be surprised if Datch finale isn't the special mostly because of track record of them finishing story arcs only during multi table specials...

Well besides that, I have to say that while I don't know much about Datch(since not really getting chance to play season 2 metaplot scenarios yet), my impression of her so far was that she has been this non combatant mastermind, so if it turns out that final encounter with her is just "AND NOW WE CAN FINALLY KILL HER LEGALLY" I'd be disappointed :p

(like seriously, even in modern space future, no taking down someone socially or just getting them arrested, always murder even when their primary tactic has been social media? ;D I can't be only one who really loves non-lethal/non-combat takedowns right?)

I very much want Datch to be taken alive. She needs to work off her debt to society by giving level 1 starfinders mission briefings.

Death does not necessarily end her story. I hear the Eoxians can do creative things.

Eh, if they kill her in combat and she comes back as undead, what prevents them killing her in combat second time?

Y'all please me with the sheer amount of emotions surrounding Datch. I feel like I succeeded in a really terrifying endeavor... :3

Datch is awesome. Like, I wouldn't want her to go more than one season as the Always One Step Ahead villain, as that would get old...but I don't see that happening.

I keep telling a friend that it'd be hilarious if she was made to join the Starfinder Society so that all the agents that want to kill her couldn't. lol

Any word on when we might see Near Space added to Additional Resources?

"HA. I kept telling them "Stabby" was an emotion they didn't believe me at the center. "
