A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 7–10.

A group of skilled infiltrators has stolen precious data from the Starfinder Society's most secure location. When these agents attempted to sell their data on the world of Daimalko, they didn't count on rousing the attention of the planet's native colossi. Travelling along with a prominent faction leader, the PCs visit Daimalko to retrieve the stolen data and any evidence pertaining to the theft—evidence now inside the belly of an immense colossal beast!

Could have been great but riddled with mechanical problems

2/5

This was as conceptually amazing as it had been promised to be but there were serious issues with the scenario on a mechanical level.

It felt very free form in terms of approach but there is a lot of missing connective tissue in this one.

Spoilers:

For example, there are three beacons you need to find and reactivate but its unclear whether they need to be recovered and moved for another character to be able to work on them but therein lies a massive difference in the achievability of the skillchecks.

Once inside the belly of the beast there are many many super high skill checks but the basic computers check just to escape the tekenki at the end to escape is almost unmakeable for computers invested characters who don't ALSO have a very high intelligence.

The entire party had to spend 8 prestige to get body recoveries

The DCs in general are far far too high for basic successes. They really cannot be THAT high for basic clearance of obstacles. I am all for rewarding characters that specialize but this felt like it was meant to punish parties that DIDNT have characters specialized in computers.

The environment was also underdetailed which meant that many player plans required making up a mechanic wholecloth far far too often.

Overall very very cool concept but the editing and execution left me wanting.


Great flavor, skill DCs way out of whack.

3/5

The first thing I noticed when I prepped to GM this scenario is that the skill DCs seemed really high, and my players, having played it last night, agreed with me. The only reason the players were able to get full rewards was because we were doing a charity event with $1 rerolls and the players spent over $20 on skill check rerolls alone. This was in addition to them ‘cheating’ and not having to do certain skill checks by creative use of spells and class abilities. I’m obviously not complaining about donating to charity, but not every group will have this option. Everyone commented on how out-of-whack the DCs were. We had a level 10 operative and Technomancer, and an 8 soldier and mystic. The mystic and soldier were unable to contribute to ANY skill checks AT ALL and were basically stuck watching the other players throw dollar bills at me until they rolled a 15 or higher on the die. They eventually took to taking 20 on every check they possibly could. If not for the flavor of this scenario (which they loved) it would have been a very unhappy table.

When Thursty teased this scenario on the Know Direction Beyond, I was ecstatic to find out we are finally going to Daimalko. Written by the one and only Amanda Hamon the one behind the damai and the planet. This scenario's premise is proper high-end content as we will be going in the belly of the beast!

It's here! I breathlessly expressed my adoration for Daimalko to Amanda Hamon at Gen Con, and I've been buzzing with excitement ever since they teased the scenario on the blog last month.

Do folks think there might be a Damai boon tied to this one? How COOL would that be, huh? Either way, huzzah!

It would be pretty cool to get to play a damai, wouldn't it?
