A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for 5th- through 8th-level characters.

Unstable planar matter ejected from the Drift has collided with Akiton's wastes, causing regional destruction and rapid biological mutations. Yet, from this collision sprouts opportunity, as the planar collision terraforms Great Gwaz into a lush, jungle paradise. At the request of famed Akitonian Starfinder Avor Stelek, a team of Starfinders is dispatched to investigate the so called "planar bloom." Can the Starfinders stop the planar bloom's spread? More importantly: should they?

This scenario is one of four stand alone Starfinder Society Scenarios directly tied to the Drift Crisis, a galaxy-wide catastrophe detailed in Starfinder Drift Crisis. While basic knowledge of the Drift Crisis enriches the experience of this adventure, it is not required. The Starfinder Society Drift Crisis Scenarios include: Starfinder Society Scenario Special #4-99: A Time of Crisis, Starfinder Society Scenario #5-04: Fragment of the 4th, Starfinder Society Scenario #5-07: Planar Bloom, and Starfinder Society Scenario #5-14.

    Light-hearted, fun with a lot of RP potential

    4/5

    This is a good example of why I enjoy Starfinder, just played it, but if this is a good example of scenarios in this season, I need to free up more time in my schedule to play.

    Only having played it, my feedback is a bit limited, and I might upgrade it after the fact, but I felt like this is exactly what I was hoping for as far as Drift Crisis integration is concerned, and this is yet another reason to motivate me to run the AP. ^^

    Looking forward to more material for this author.

    The second part of the scenario was a bit more tedious, we played high tier and the combats felt like they need more time to resolve - and as often the case with certain enemy effects a failure spiral can happen all too easily.

    Yeah, Akiton is that one planet in the Pact Worlds that seems to have a chance of actually benefiting from the Drift Crisis, seeing as how Drift Travel originally crashed the thasteron market and the whole planet really could use a bit of a makeover.

    ""Yeah what could go wrong. Where do you think those plants are getting all that water? They need to be sucking what passes as akitons aquafier dry for 100 miles around that thing. And for all we know thats the larval form of an interdimensional kaiju....

    There's a neat-sounding boon mentioned on the chronicle sheet for this scenario, which we got an early sneak-peek at, at Gen Con. It doesn't seem to be active in the list of boons in the Org Play boons tab, yet, though. O Great and Wise Paizo Overlords: is there any chance that the Chronicle boon for 5-07 can be turned on a bit early (like the one from the also-unreleased 5-06 was?)

    But of course! My apologies for forgetting, we're going to call it "blatant bias because Alex was running 5-06 at Gen Con but not 5-07." It's active now; as a treat, here is the text of the boon as well.

    Spoiler:
    First World Mutation (Vanity Boon): While investigating a planar collision outside Great Gwaz, you were exposed to powerful transformative magic from the First World. This exposure caused one of the following mutations. Select this mutation when you acquire this boon and mark the mutation on your chronicle sheet for Planar Bloom.
    [ ] Your eyes glow and change color with your mood.
    [ ] Woody plants sprout from your head like antlers and grow small edible berries.
    [ ] Fairy-like wings sprout from your back and make a faint jingling noise when you flap them. (These wings don’t grant you a fly speed).
    [ ] Flower-covered vines grow out of one of your body parts and coil around your body.
    [ ] You grow colorful grass on the top of your arms and legs.
    [ ] Your skin becomes sparkly, as if blanketed in glitter.
