A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 3-6 (subtiers 3-4 & 5-6).

When a Pact Worlds colony out in the Vast calls for medical assistance, the Starfinder Society dispatches the PCs with much-needed medicinal goods. Arriving at the colony, the PCs must help the colony survive, as most of the settlement’s inhabitants are afflicted by a mysterious illness. As the PCs work to save the colony, they uncover the truth behind the illness and a conspiracy that could change the shape of the Pact Worlds.

Short but sweet


It's a bit on the easy side and runs really fast, but the story works, and especially right now is extremely apropos. I had a good time playing this.

A timely scenario about Public Health


I have no idea how good this scenario will be at a later date. What I know is that I ran this scenario via VTT after unexpectedly having to shift the scenario to that venue due to the Covid-19 crisis.

So naturally this scenario became one big opportunity for the players and I to make jokes about quarantines, public health and pharmaceutical companies which is something all of us needed. The scenes of you as Starfinders needing to calm down quarantine-crazed colonists could not have gone better.

That said the scenario did have a few other fun things going for it. The scene at the generators had some logical and funny things in play and even the final encounter did something I wish we had more often with a secondary not-just-killing-things goal in play.

Ultimately this was a lot of fun - not the most epic thing but whimsical and fun in a time when that is what we needed most.

Great to see this in the wild! Big thanks to Thursty for his guidance and development, and to Jenny Jarzabski for stepping in when I had to tap out.

A note about the encounter in A2:

It seems I didn’t give the Subtier 5-6 elementals the correct HP. It should probably be 70 each rather than the listed 40.
