A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–8.

Balancing time against the lives of the myriad trapped Starfinders, nominated First Seeker Luwazi Elsebo authorizes a dangerous mission to return to the fated region of space known as the Scoured Stars. The might of the resurgent Society is finally poised to breach the formerly impenetrable barrier surrounding the trinary system. The galaxy pauses to watch if a new generation of Starfinders can save those once lost. A mission of exploration and a mission of mercy, this return to the Scoured Stars will undoubtedly shape the future of the Starfinder Society.

Content in The Scoured Stars Invasion also contributes to the ongoing goals of the Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsebo) faction. Content in this scenario also contributes to the ongoing year of the Scoured Stars storyline.

My Favorite Special

*****

This is a fun, balanced, and cohesive special with an immersive environment and a fulfilling story. I've run and/or played every PFS special, but I honestly believe that this is my favorite.


An Awesomely Good Time!

*****

This was my first foray into Organized Play, and I had a blast! There were lots of interesting things to do that hearkened back to a dozen different sci-fi tropes. The pacing was brisk, but I didn’t feel like we left too many things undone. There were lots of moments to let your character shine! And the rewards were quite exciting!

I’ve definitely become a SFS convert!

Is it usual to promote these sorts of special scenarios fifteen months before they are released? Or is there some kind of limited release earlier than June 2019?

Also, will it be part of the SFS subscription?


Normally (at least that is the way it is in pfs) multi-table scenarios are run at conventions and are available for sale one year after that.
So my guess is this one will get limited release at gencon 2018 and then anyone can buy it in 2019.

Multi-table interactive specials like these typically release in the summer, are available to play at conventions, and then become available for purchase one year later. #1–99 debuts at Origins 2018 and will feature at dozens of conventions worldwide until June 2019, when we expect to release it to the public for sale.

Ah, cheers. Thanks GreyYeti and John.

Are they included in the subscription when they become available?

My understanding is that this special will be played at Origins (in June.)

I know this is the way things have always been done, but I really hate that these are exclusive to cons. My home group has been faithfully playing through every scenario in order over the past year, watching the storyline build, and we won’t get to play or even read about the conclusion for a year. Yes, I know online cons are a thing and are great, but that doesn’t suit everyone’s schedule or preferences.

This is my feeling too, to be frank. I realise everything isn't for everyone. Nonetheless, deliberately crafted scarcity is always annoying when you're on the outer.

EDIT: That may have come off snarkier than intended. It's more disappointment than any true annoyance, in my case.

If your homegroup can get 3 tables together on the same day, nothings stops you from asking your local VC to provide the scenario for that day.

I do appreciate the suggestion, but by "homegroup" I mean literally the same four (sometimes five) players showing up every two weeks at my home. There was a while there were only three players, so the GMPC Iconic had to be played . . .

We struggle with one table. :(

And just how many tables will we need to play simultaneously on convention to qualify for 1-99? Can they be multicity tables?


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Nice! Eagerly awaiting the requirements on number of tables and the maps that will be used.

This contradicts with the Paizo blog post "Origins—Launching into a New Starfinder Society Season", which says it'll be exclusive until Gencon 2018.

Has there been a change of plan?

Sovereign Court

I believe what that means is that it can only be run at Paizo-approved conventions between Origins and Gencon. After Gencon it can be run at any convention that gets RVC approval. (And then in August 2019 it will be opened up.)


Starfinder Superscriber

That answer seems to contradict with the blog post;

Tonya Woldridge wrote:
Looking ahead, players, GMs and organizers can view "The Scoured Stars Invasion" special akin to the mid-season finales that have become popular in modern media. This event will have some major repercussions that the campaign will explore into the second half of its now-extended season. To maintain a cohesive narrative and not punish players who don't have the chance to attend the events debuting the special, we won't be directly following-up on these events until at least a month after the exclusive window ends. This gives local lodges a chance to run the interactive prior to delving into any scenarios that touch on the ramifications.

Season 1 ends at Origins 2019, so if the exclusive window for #1-99 is extended to June 2019 then this is less a mid-season finale than an early season finale. This leads me to believe that there's been a miscommunication within Paizo about this product.

For all of our planning purposes it'd be good to have this sorted out.

That just means that there won't be scenarios tied to the fallout from 1-99 until September (since the Paizo-exclusive season ends with Gencon).

Basically, everything that has come out about this fits in directly with how Solstice Scar part A worked last year. I would be shocked if they were changing what they were doing with multi-table specials without making it abundantly clear.

Woo! I have all of those maps except for Space Station but I'll have that way before Gen Con anyway! Thanks Thursty!

I'll be requesting this one for my Con in September.


Will we be able to request it for running in July or will this be one of those that it previews @ Origins and then the final won't be able to be scheduled until after Gen Con?

Wayfinders

I am going to be playing this at GenCon on Tier 5-6! So exciting!

Hmm

I just signed up to run this at Gencon hopefully I get selected to. Am looking forward to seeing this.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

I am signed up for Saturday night at Gen Con as well to play in this, tier 5-6.

There are still 128 tickets out of 180 available for that tier so I hope more people sign up for it. However, all 300 tickets for tier 1-2 and 230 of 240 for tier 3-4 are already sold. Tier 7-8 still has 80 of 120 tickets available. Obviously folks are still on the lower levels when it comes to Starfinder Society. So, 218 of your best Starfinder buddies can still sign up at Gen Con!!

The map for area E should instead use the same map as area B. There was a mix-up in the files and it's currently showing an incorrect (Mythos Dungeon) map.

Please, tell me, what is minimum number of simultaneous tables to apply for running this special. It is important for our small Moscow SFS lodge

Does this mean that Mythos Dungeon is no longer needed?

No, the Mythos map is used in other encounters.

Can you play out of tier for this scenario? My friends and I bought tickets for tier 3-4, but due to GM credit I would end up level 5 when we hit gencon?

After #1-17 (I asked the same question at Origins)

Though I don't really think of #1-00, #1-09 and #1-20 as being part of the Scoured Stars story line.

Correct!

The scenarios you mentioned are part of our ongoing Salvation's End story arc, which is something that's likely to be one of the select non-season stories we pursue throughout the campaign.

Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsbo)

Will there be a disadvantage to playing this before 1-17? I am frustrated that I do not think I will have time to play it before my Gameday.

I played the special at Paizocon UK, and then 1-17 the next day, no real disadvantage honestly! :)


So I inquired about the storyline at GenCon, but my 9-block GM brain dumped it hardcore.

What are the 'must-haves' before the Scenario (no spoilers) for story impact after 1.05?

Thank you for your patience, trying to get someone up to the level I'm playing this at during SKALCon (3-4) and would like to get the story ones on the right character.

#1-01: The Commencement

#1-05: The First Mandate
#1-11: In Pursuit of the Scoured Past
#1-13: On the Trail of History
#1-17: Reclaiming the Time-Lost Tear

References to many other things throughout 01-99, though they did not do 100% of the things that I expected.

#1-21 feels like a response to #1-13 and #1-99, but is part of a different storyline.
