Hello, Starfinders!
Breaking news!

First Seeker Ehu Hadif soon to retire! Four engaging candidates rise from the Society’s rank and file, gaining the respect and support of their fellow Starfinders! Which of these four First Seeker hopefuls has what it takes to lead the Starfinder Society into the uncertain future? The choice is yours! The time to vote is now!

Meet the candidates for the 2023 First Seeker Election in Starfinder Society Scenario #6-06: Tomorrow’s Seeker, a repeatable adventure for 1st- through 4th-level characters written by our very own Alex Speidel! This is your chance to personally meet and engage with our four candidates for First Seeker, perform a mission for each, and get a taste of where they plan to lead the Starfinder Society in the future. After you’ve played the adventure, visit paizo.com/firstseeker to learn more about our candidates and the election, and to cast your vote!

The future is in your hands!

Meanwhile, at the heart of the Pact Worlds system, a call goes out for freelance problem solvers! Domaaz Manhala, youngest student ever to attend Solar University, is determined to earn the respect of their peers by performing a grand experiment in the quad. Unfortunately, they’ve been unable to find the time to collect a few key components! It’s up to you to travel the Burning Archipelago to collect the missing components and assist Domaaz with their explosive experiment!

Starfinder Bounty #9: Burning Ambitions is a short adventure for 4th-level characters written by Joel Southall.

Take care, Starfinders!

Welcome, Pathfinders!
This month we see the release of our new season, the Year of Unfettered Exploration!

Because no year could ever begin without a bang, we start in the Grand Lodge in Absalom, celebrating a monumental victory and the new allies that were gathered during our recent adventures! The Pathfinders are tasked with entertaining one of the new venture-captains, Taiwalei, and escorting him through a small tour of the Maze of the Open Road. However, missions are never as simple as they seem, and it appears some of the Elemental Planes ripped through into the Maze, bringing new faces, new challenges, and a whale shark of a time!

Pathfinder Society Intro: Year of Unfettered Exploration is an adventure for 1st- through 4th-level characters written by Sen H.H.S.

Also this month, we’re heading back to the Blackwood Swamp to check in on the Azlanti dig site and the nearby Tskikha iruxi enclave from our two PFS intro scenarios, Pathfinder Society Scenario Intro #1: The Second Confirmation and Pathfinder Society Scenario Intro #2: United in Purpose. It’s become a bit of a training ground for initiate Pathfinders, as most of the dangers were cleared out years ago along with the most important finds. The main issue is that it’s been weeks since anyone has heard from either the Tskikha or the initiates, and Lolly Adafish, the newly-promoted venture-captain, is beside herself with worry.

It's up to you and your fellow Pathfinders to rectify this situation. As you learn what has become of the missing Pathfinders and iruxi, you’ll be faced with elemental magic gone out of control, and the choices you make will determine if everyone can make it back from wherever they are alive, including a certain young kobold who has been occasionally finding a place in this very blog over the past several months.

Pathfinder Society Scenario #5-02: The Blackwood Lost is an adventure for 3rd- through 6th-level characters written by Alison Cybe.

That’s all for now, Pathfinders! Remember: Explore, Report, Cooperate!

Level 4 SF bounties yeeesssssssss! Very pumped to finally add +0.25 XP to that one character that had the audacity to level up past 1 without a whole number of XP!
(Yes, it's the character's fault. Not the player's. Not even a little bit.)

That thrills me as well. I really want my character's XP even, if it has no mechanical effect.

Off to the swamp!
