A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 5–8.

When the Society starts finding evidence of missing weapon caches showing up on worlds in Near Space, it puts together a team to investigate. The PCs travel to one such world, where they uncover enemies of the Society are outfitting the pre-Drift locals with weapons well beyond their technology level. The PCs must choose how to handle this delicate situation, but the Society is clear that it needs its weapons back and out of the hands of those who aren't ready for such technology!

Sangoro's Gifts is the second of two adventures in the Stumbling Society series. This adventure is preceded by Starfinder Society Scenario #2-06: The Stumbling Society, Part 1: Sangoro's Lament. These two scenarios are intended to be played in order.

Great despite flaws

5/5

I had written a really long review, but this website managed to delete it when I pressed preview, so here is the short version.

The stats of NPCs and spaceships often do not follow the actual rules for building them, or even basic logic. A spaceship with 120 total shields should not have 24 shield in each quadrant, mystics can't cast entropic grasp, and mystics with a negative wisdom modifier can't cast at all. The internal logic is also flawed at points - at one point NPCs get slaughtered in a scripted fight they really should have won by their stats.

The encounters are interesting, but a bit too easy.

All of that is meaningless compared to how great NPCs and story progression are. The choices the players make feel interesting and meaningful, the setting is awesome, and the NPCs hit the perfect spot of being memorable, but not annoying, sympathetic but flawed enough to create conflict, and most importantly fun both to play and interact with.

Great scenario, could have been better if the easily fixable mechanical problems had been resolved before publishing.


4/5

First time we ever solved an ecounter by saying "WE ARE THE SISCO"


Great experience

4/5

The single biggest issue I had was that:
Sending a second ship with you triggered all of my conspiracy theory triggers.

I constantly expected the second 'cargo ship' to become a gun ship (ie, it opens it's cargo bays and exposes it's missile launchers) kind of moment)

Because of that, I didn't role play as hard into the second ship as I could have, and always wanted to have a back up plan in case, even on the planet, they started to attack


Guns and Religion. What could possibly go wrong?

5/5

I think this was a challenging adventure concept to do well. The concepts at play are so rooted in imperialism. But I feel by focusing the attention so squarely on the Society that they did pretty well at making this fun and tugging at our guilty consciences.

The encounters were all interesting - the fact that you dont necessarily want to be going into psycho killer mode does a lot to mix up the tactics you might use.

Ultimately, DRAT THAT RAT! Absolutely loved it.

It needs to be noted that the connection between this and part 1 is pretty darn tenuous so don't feel pressured to play them in order at all.

    Huh!

    Revised statement on the final map:

    It's labeled "Flip-Mat: Jungle" in the adventure, but this is in fact Flip-Mat [Classic]: Forest

    Spoiler:
    This scenario appears to have starship combat, but no starship tag

    Super excited about this one!


    Chronicle Spoilers:
    The new Kiirinta race has an ability called Reverberating Shriek, and the DC of this ability appears to be based on the TARGET'S Constitution score, rather than the Kiirinta's. Is that a typo or deliberate?

    Hmm, that's a good question...but one I don't have the answer to. I wrote it as the

    Spoiler:

    kiirinta's Constitution score.

    I'm not sure if that was a deliberate change made in development or not. But it does seem unusual.

    It should be the Con store of the creature using it. :)


    Chronicle question:

    Spoilers!:
    The chronicle says, "You can use this boon only if your character has a Reputation Tier of 3 with one or more factions and at least one of your other characters has the “Drat That Rat!” boon from The Stumbling Society Part 1, representing your completion of this two‑part series of adventures."

    Does this mean the two parts must be completed by different characters in order to get the kiirinta character? Or if the same character gets both chronicles, does it satisfy this condition?

    Chronicle SPOILER!:
    Basically, your character who completed this scenario needs the Reputation Tier 3 and either this character or any other, needs to have the Drat that Rat boon. This is basically to cover in case you played Part 1 with a different character

    Looks like Archive of Nethys needs to correct its site too.

    This seems to be missing the Starship tag
