A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 3–6.

The Ice Wells of Aballon are half-frozen jungles that line the planet's deepest craters. Preservationist Xenowardens monitor these sites of natural splendor, and they have recently granted the Starfinder Society exploration rights to the Ice Well known as Gullet. Venturing deep below Aballon's surface, a group of Starfinders quickly uncover a threat to the verdant jungles and a growing sickness that could threaten the rest of the planet.

Starts off great, then detours into weirdness

3/5

So this scenario’s a bit confusing. I mean, it starts off alright. You are told to explore the native flora and fauna of an area, report back, play nicey-nice with an NPC guide. The guide is exotic, the local is exotic, and it is a scenario that favors a skill that isn’t computers or engineering, so that’s refreshing! And the first half of the scenario is fine, follows logically very nicely.

The second half of the scenario jumps right off the rails and takes a right turn into unknown waters. I mean, it just comes out of nowhere and makes no logical sense. Without spoiling anything, you stumble upon something you had no idea was going on and it is just coincidence the Starfinders show up when they do. And it is up to the Starfinders, who just happen to be there by happenstance, to save the day. That kind of extreme ‘oh, we just happened to show up at the at the exact right time even though we had no idea what was going on’ writing is a bit too trite for my taste.

That said, the fights and set pieces were all tactically challenging, interesting, and fun! Just wish the story had been workshopped a bit more.
