A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–4.

The ant-like formians of Castrovel’s colonies are a reclusive species who've only recently made peace with their enemies, the lashuntas. As part of the ongoing peace, the formians have admitted a small number of outsiders to participate in a reenactment of a famous moment in formian history. The PCs are among these privileged few participants, but they soon realize that there are other forces that want the reenactment to fail, tearing apart the peaceful coexistence of formians and lashuntas with it. It's up to the PCs to ensure these shadowy trespassers don't succeed!

3/5

I GM'd this online.

It's a bit dry, and not just because of the desert! It also went be fairly quick - if you don't have players eager to interact with the npcs at length then it'll go by very fast. There are only two combats (and one ship combat). A majority of the scenario is more or less an 'Oregon trail' sort of deal. Just skill check after skill check trying to overcome some challenges as you make the long trek through a desert.

Both combats are a bit of a joke, with the second one even being 'avoidable' if the party did well in the first part and can move quickly. The starship combat wasn't anything special to mention.

I would have liked to see more emphasis on the Formian+Lashunta political relationship and get to spend more time with Formian Culture. Also would have been nice to end on something besides ship combat. It really slows down the end of the scenario, which ends up just a few words and then a little hint at some nefarious dealings that relate to the current smear campaign.

So not bad, but not great. A little dry.

edit: I forgot to mention, I really like the fact this the scenario includes a very relatable real-world issue in the story.


Good introductory adventure - wish the focus has been on culture and diplomacy

3/5

I love this sort of adventure where a new culture is exposed to us and giving us as a lot of information about one of the core races which I have been desperately hungry for.

This has been something I have badly wanted - it was disappointing that a big chunk of this opportunity was spent traveling and then dealing with a starship combat, but if you want it bad enough and can get your players to pay attention the travel can do that and show a lot about Castrovel to new players which is very cool. Still, it feels like more could have been done to showcase the cultures and diplomatic/political positions of the Asana and the Formians to make the choice at the end more interesting.

I do like the diplomatic angle as well - though I do wish it were a little harder to balance the two party's interests.

I haven't gotten mine yet, but it's listed as "pending" since the 3rd. Along with 2-03/2-04, which I already own.

I haven't gotten my contributor copy yet either. I'm assuming customer service and the warehouse are suuuuuuuuper busy and then there was the long weekend this past weekend. I can't wait to see the final!

This one sparked a rather heated OOC argument at our local gaming shop. You would think everyone would relate to crippling student dept. Enter devotee of Abadar (otherwise known as Business Major)
