A Starfinder Bounty designed for Level 1.

A desperate scam artist prowls the bars of Drifter’s End, fleecing the tourists and starship crews of Absalom Station out of their hard-earned credits with a chunk of fake horacalcum and the chance to invest in their newly discovered starmetal vein. It’s up to the PCs to track down this fake miner, and haul them back to pay their dues!

    Please give it time. Our webstore coordinator tells me new images sometimes "seem to be having some trouble coming down the pipeline."

    I am not sure how useful this is, but the Fly Free or Die AP has Side Jobs in volumes 2 through 5. They are small extra encounters that start at 5th level and end at 10th. They seem a lot like Bounties to me if you are looking for higher level options. Volume 1 has an article on Galactic Trade and volume 6 has some Continuing the Campaign encounters that look they they could stand alone just as well as Side Jobs. An AP is a bigger purchase than these new Bounties, but the whole AP is gold. :)

    All these are great ideas, but I think a lot of the enthusiasm for bounties is coming from the Org Play crowd where a bounty can provide a nice short adventure in a store's tight time slot, or at a non-gaming convention where newcomers are more likely to give you an hour of time than 4 hours of time. I'm also excited by the ability to decouple quest packs in Organized Play now.

    But you are right that the Side Jobs are incredibly awesome, and Fly Free or Die as a whole looks like a ton of fun!

    Hmm

    Really happy to see Starfinder bounties, my work schedule makes it impossible to play adventures that take more than one session to play.

    Hmm

    I'm happy the Org Play community is interested! Bounties are hybrid products designed to serve both them and non-Society players. Definitely entry level. I've just heard a lot of Pathfinder players and streamers looking for higher level experiences, so I mention them. Backstory: I've been looking for content we've already created that can be converted into "Paizo Presents" liveplays next year.

    Aaron --

    This is a serious question. Would you ever consider a Wayfinder adventure for this? I wrote Wandering Waterbear for Wayfinder 20. It's all Paizo IP, runs in 4 hours, and has had great reviews from players.

    Hmm

    By the way, I didn't say it before, but I am beyond excited to see John Godek, a 5-nova GM, writing the first bounty!

    Thanks Hilary! - I hope you and your 5 Nova's will be doing one soon too!

    It will happen eventually—there are a lot of great people who also want to write SFS adventures.

    Congratulations on this one, John! Really looking forward to seeing it! :)

    I'm guessing that they're going to change the SFS xp to more resemble that of PF2 in order to factor Bounties into things. Either that or you get .25 xp per each one.

    I'm trying to preorder but, there's no Add to Cart option for both of the Bounties. When will these be available for preorder?

    Our digital-only products don't usually get a preorder option, you'll be able to purchase it Wednesday when it's released!

    1/4 XP? Better than 0 but annoying for book keeping. I missed a memo or blog post on this, how often are these coming out?
