This month we officially launch the Year of Redemption’s Rise with not one, not two, but three new Starfinder Society Scenarios! Let’s dive right in!
The Data Scourge is over and Absalom Station is saved! Yet, trouble continues to brew within the Starfinder Society. As suspicion and paranoia cause agents to isolate and the Society to fracture along faction lines, First Seeker Ehu Hadif embarks on a year of change. He opens the floor to all agents, giving them a platform to voice their concerns, plans, and ambitions, and to lobby for change. From these discussions, new factions are founded, reforms are enacted, and relationships begin to mend. Our first scenario
Take on the role of Starfinders tasked with assisting three minor factions integral to the future of the Starfinder Society: the longstanding Manifold Host and the newly formed Advocates and Cognates factions. Soothe the tempers of clashing agents, welcome new members to the Starfinder Society, track down and destroy lingering fragments of the Data Scourge, and help Ziggy secure a new base of operations! Wait, that last one sounds familiar…
Take the first steps toward a brighter future in the Year of Redemption’s Rise! Starfinder Society Scenario #5-01: Intro: Year of Redemption’s Rise is a repeatable scenario for levels 1–4 written by Alex Speidel. This is the first scenario in the ongoing Year of Redemption's Rise metaplot. While it is recommended you begin with Intro: Year of Redemption's Rise, the remaining metaplot scenarios in the Year of Redemption's Rise can be played in any order.
In our second scenario of the month, the Starfinders have discovered a relic of dubious providence in their collection, which further investigation reveals to have been stolen by a famous, long deceased Starfinder. Rather than bury the truth, Celita and Fitch dispatch a team of Starfinders to Qidel to return the relic to the strix from whom it was stolen and to offer the Society’s heartfelt apologies. But earning the acknowledgement of those we’ve wronged takes more than pretty words, and forgiveness is far harder to come by. Starfinder Society Scenario #5-02: Road to Reconciliation is a scenario for levels 3–6 written by Shay Snow.
Finally, the Starfinder Society travels to Vesk-6 to meet with Miiyu, pahtra pop star and leader of the Pulonis Liberation Front. Miiyu asks the Starfinders to help her identify a murderous double-agent she suspects to be hiding among her inner circle. To get the Starfinders close without tipping off the traitor, Miiyu has planned this mission to coincide with another: securing an old military bunker as a base of operations for the PLF. Unfortunately, helping rebels isn’t exactly a Veskarium approved mission. To avoid the attention of the Veskarium, the Starfinders need to juggle their true mission with their public mission to investigate the mysterious Shriek. Keep a sharp eye out! Vesk-6 is dangerous enough, without having to worry that one of your traveling companions is a traitor! Oh, and did I mention this adventure has… mechs? Yes, this is our first Starfinder Society Scenario to feature mech combat! Starfinder Society Scenario #5-03: Combatant’s Concerto: Fugue of the Traitor is a scenario for levels 7–10 written by Alison Cybe.
This scenario continues the ongoing Combatant's Concerto storyline, which began with Starfinder Society Scenario #3-11: Into the Veskarium and Starfinder Society Scenario #4-06: Combatant's Concerto: Prelude to Revolution. While playing these previous scenarios enriches the experience of this adventure, it’s not required, so play away!
I hope you join us in launching the Year of Redemption’s Rise!

Gather ‘round, Pathfinders! We have one Pathfinder Society scenario releasing this month, and it’s an exciting one. Pathfinder Society Scenario #3-15: Cavern of the Sundered Song is our very first 2nd Edition Pathfinder Society scenario for level 9–12 characters! Many players have been eagerly awaiting an opportunity to play in this level range, and veteran adventure author Kate Baker has crafted something both challenging and exciting for them.
This is a non-metaplot scenario, so if you don’t quite have a character in this level range yet, the standalone nature of the adventure means that it’ll still be relevant when you’re ready. Speaking of the story, Cavern of the Sundered Song has plenty of opportunities for role-playing with some fun characters, including one you may recognize from your character’s earliest days in the Pathfinder Society: Kreighton Shaine, the Master of Scrolls! Why has he been avoiding the enigmatic scrollmaster Effeflinn Whyst for so many years, and why have the two of them suddenly disappeared into a portal leading to a dangerous, isolated cavern? It’s up to you to find out!
This adventure also includes a side mission for the Grand Archive faction. I’d love to say more about some of the wonderful places you’ll visit in Cavern of the Sundered Song, but I don’t want to spoil anything. You’ll just have to roll the dice and see for yourselves!
