Welcome to Starfinder Boon Release


Starfinder Society


Will the boon be available to download by August 25th for the online Game Day?

Given it was sort of inferred it would be ready by yesterday, who knows :)

I plan on running sessions as a GM and would love to have the Welcome to Starfinder Boon to give to new players.

I know our VOs got them at GenCon and will be bringing them to our next weekly game night (24 August). Check with your VOs and see if they already have copies to share. If not today, I'm sure they will soon.


Alright, time to summon Hmm then.

Honestly, I was sort of hoping they'd be freely downloadable like the PFS one, for those of us who don't have easy access to VOs.

I'm a VC, and we have a SFS launch event in a couple of hours, the boons haven't come down the line yet.

Well, that answers my question, as Shifty is my VC, and it is my launch event.

Quick update. We have the boon done and available at Gen Con. The digital version is taking some extra time to generate. We hope to have this out soon for everyone to use!

Hey all, Tonya assured me that the Welcome to Starfinder boon will be part of the upcoming PBP Gameday packet. It does indeed exist. The moment that I get it, it will also appear in the PBP GM Kit that you can find when clicking my profile.

I am also going to try to get both boons to appear in the summary headers for both Flaxseed Lodge and Castamir's Flaxseed Station. (I'll see if we can get them listed in other lodges too!)

Now... I have to go get sleep. I GM again in the morning. It has been a very intense convention!

Hugs,
Hmm


It worked!

Summoning Hmm from a few posts above is what worked. I want to know what summon spell you use to summon her though? Surely, Hmm is not a monster! She seems too nice! Or have I fallen victim to something I am as of yet unaware of? Desna, help me!


It was summon halfling VO!

Gees Snake killer I'll be home tomorrow and have plenty of welcome to starfinder boons printed off.

A couple of questions on this boon, as I haven't played PFS since about Season 1 and don't know how these boons work in PFS.

I played Into the Unknown and 1-01 this weekend. Will I be able to get the boon somehow?

I also accidentally deleted my 701 character as I couldn't make the character registration system work so my first/only SFS character is 702. Can that character get the boon?

Thanks!

Having previously had a player with that exact issue, contact Hmm and your local VO.

Anyone know when the Society at large will be able to download this for our players?

To be honest I think we may see it sometime this week after the Paizo staff gets back from Gen Con and gets some much needed rest. I suspect they will get the website fixed and updated and we should be able to find the download then.

2/5

It would be great to see it this week as I have
a kickoff starfinder society event I'm running at a game store this Sunday.

Initial estimates say 20ish players over the course of the day (which is huge for the store.)

Shadow Lodge 4/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Florida—Jacksonville aka Kyrie Ebonblade,

That is why I was asking too.. stepping up event here in Jax, I figure maybe a dozen -701 pcs starting up

Sovereign Court 4/5 ⦵⦵⦵⦵ Venture-Agent, Georgia—Atlanta aka The Masked Ferret

I have a few players starting tonight. It would be great to give it to them.

Shadow Lodge

Does the welcome boon have to be the first boon on the character? Can we go back and give it to players that are starting before the boon gets put on the site?

The boon does not say it has to be placed on the -701 or that it has to be the first boon on the character.

I am pretty sure the boon is one per player however.

Also eagerly anticipating the intro boon for an event in a few weeks

The Exchange 3/5 ⦵⦵

Why oh why didn't I grab an extra blank copy at GenCon like I planned on.

Grand Lodge 5/5 ⦵⦵⦵ Venture-Captain, Online—PbP aka Hmm

I am asking myself the same thing. I had them in my hands! I just was certain they would be on the site by now.

Hmm

Shadow Lodge 4/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Florida—Jacksonville aka Kyrie Ebonblade,

Quite surprised about it myself but The shrugged it off to something that got missed in the run up to GC50. I mean that had to be crazy right?


What does it do?

The boon gives you special items that are limited in use and not overly powerful. Similar to the Welcome to Pathfinder Society boon.

I found a blank Welcome to Starfinder sheet in my bag. Thursty, am I allowed to scan it and put a link to it here until you guys get the digitized copy up? I don't want to get in trouble with you, but I also would love it if those running SFS events this weekend had it.

If the boon is not required to be on the 701 or as the first Chronicle, that goes a long way towards addressing some concerns I had seen/heard. Thanks for that bit of information.

Hmm

I'm glad you asked because I was going to scan the one I have and share it not even thinking about asking.

BTW congratulations HMM

I've got some bad news.

Welcome: A player may apply the Welcome to Starfinder boon to their first character (XXXX–701)

It still does not say it has to be the first chronicle, however.

Alright. I think most can still work with that unless their character has trouble operating an airlock early on.

In his defense, those airlocks can be tricky.
