Hello, Starfinders!

This month, we’re sending one lucky team of Starfinders to Akiton to participate in the inaugural Dustwarren Cup, a three-day boat race across the vast, shifting sand dunes of Akiton’s Dustwarren silt sea. Organized by retired racer Mimli Nurkop, eccentric scion of the fabulously wealthy (and much-gossiped-about) Nurkop ysoki clan, the Dustwarren Cup is drawing plenty of attention. So, hop aboard your racing yacht, set sail across the Dustwarren, and keep an eye out for danger! In a race this big, there’s bound to be trouble!

Starfinder Society Scenario #6-07: Race for the Dustwarren Cup is an adventure for 7th- through 10th-level characters written by Solomon St. John.

Greetings Pathfinders!

This month we’re going back to Magnimar, to Heidmarch Manor, where a simple delivery task will probably turn out to be anything but. Sheila Heidmarch has prepared a gift for a very discerning dragon, but a master thief has his eyes on that prize.

In Pathfinder Society Scenario #5-03 Heidmarch Heist, an adventure for PCs 5th– through 8th level, it’s up to you and your fellow PCs to ensure that the Pathfinder’s chosen gift doesn’t end up as bragging rights for an up-and-coming gang of escapees from Xin-Edasseril. Hilary Moon Murphy has put all of the flavor of Magnimar that could possibly fit into this scenario, so whether you’re a Society veteran, you’ve never set foot in the city, or anything in between, you’ll love the city as much as you hate the thief trying to ruin everything

Sheila Heidmarch sits within her manor, about to brief the PCs over a glass of wine. A thief goads the Pathfinders, his rapier at the ready.

Speaking of plans gone awry, we’re also bringing you Pathfinder Quest #15 In the Footsteps of Horror. A repeatable 2 hour adventure for PCs levels 1–4, this is the second release of our new Series 2 quests, and author Shan Wolf has crafted a wonderful dungeon crawl that starts, as all excellent stories do, when the unexpected completely sends all plans off the rails.

You and your fellow PCs will have to put your mission on the backburner as you fight to survive, and hopefully to find a way back home. If you were looking for an offering in our new quest series heavier on combat, then this is the adventure for you.

And for our final option for this month, we have a trip planned for Hwanggot! Pathfinders will meet with Venture-Captain Yi Da Som and the Waterfall in order to help them prepare for a meeting with Valashinaz, the underworld dragon of myth and legend. However, upon arriving, it seems her assistant Purepurin has not only forgotten the meeting, but is busy contending with a legion of pests! Among pickle jars and treasure piles, where could this kobold be?

Pathfinder Society Scenario #5-04: Equal Exchanges – Necessary Introductions is an adventure for 1st- through 4th-level characters written by Michelle Y. Kim.

That’s all for now, Pathfinders! See you in October!

Dang, I'll have one of whatever Sheila's drinking.

Not if it means I have to sit in front of a stained glass window of….myself battling heroically. Or maybe that’s how she got to where she is. Drinking.

I'm guessing Sheila Heidmarch and the Pathfinder Society may have spent a lot of gold trying to lessen the devestating impact on Magnimar (and help salvage their reputation) that happened after the Sihedron was reassembled and a tsunami hit the city.
