Mr. Hillman,

If there isn't an upcoming scenario where we end up body guarding this band and discover all the awful people in Absalom's pop music industry then you've failed us all.

Further more, if the ultimate villain of that scenario isn't a Taylor Swift type Half-Elf who has given her soul over to Aspis then you've failed us twice.

PS Strawberry Machine Cake is a really good name for an all Asian, Manga inspired Nine Inch Nails cover band.

My group enjoyed playing this at full volume as they went into the warehouse, guardians of the galaxy style.

Did they dance as they fought a giant alien monster?

SMC has already made an appearance at once of my Dead Sun's games; the band was spotted dining at an exclusive restaurant in the Parkside district just last evening!

I assume that seeing that attractive Holonet star sitting at the same table as their lead singer was just because they're good friends!

Oh, no. Is there any meaningful difference between Starfinder adventuring parties and paparazzi?

Not after my Paparazzi Character Concept gets uploaded to my account.

You are swiftly led into Venture Captain Arvin's office where the grim faced Damaya-Lashunta waits by the window.

"Starfinders, I need you to listen carefully because this is the most dangerous, most violent, most critical mission I've ever sent you on. At 0700 Galactic Standard Time, some maniac named "Yeezus" uploaded some sort of black material to the intergalactic web. Two hours later, the Swift Legion declared war upon the Confederacy of Perry and the threat of bloodshed now hangs upon civilized space. I need you to attend a last chance peace conference at a neutral zone established at the VMAs..."

Vesk prefer opera.

And Shakespeare. You haven't heard Shakespeare until you've heard it in the original Vesk.

My Vidgamer Icon Envoy made sure she left a copy of the new album behind on the planet Elytrio. That, and a copy of Chicago Mobs of the Twenties. Never hurts to get a piece of the action.

My Itch Streamer Envoy went on a very long on stream rant about how Strawberry Machine Cake is a terrible band, for people with terrible tastes, and how 5Credback is so real music. He'd love a chance to bodyguard them, and stream it!

stupid rules didn't let him buy five copies of the album...

My -701 is a Lashunta Icon Envoy that happens to be a burgeoning pop star working with the Wayfinders to seek out and establish new venues to perform at. She immediately hated SMC. Needless to say she bought their album.

Ugh, I know, right?

Their music is just skrub-trash, there's only, like, five bass drops in their entire discography! Why waste time listening to it, when you could listen to real music, like D3dYs0ki or Larude!

Starduststorm! Now there's a song worth fraggin' to!

As much as the scenario said they are a pop band I still imagine them more like Baby Metal

I'm a fan of BABYMETAL, really, so I wouldn't mind.

I tried to roll profession : black marketeer to get the album easier. Naturally I failed. Of course now that I have it, selling copies on the black market could be a thing for my operative outlaw thief.

Fine, I'm going to be *that guy* and say I thought the album thing was on the wrong side of silly and sets a goofier tone for SFS than I'd like. But I guess if it brings you all so much joy, I can live with it.

That would be the android preschool chorus.

Judging by the laughter around the tables I've been at (playing and running) I do think that you're in the minority on this. Or, at least, it brings a lot of joy to a lot of people :-)

It would have to give a reroll.

3/5

Standing in line for the SMC album is one of the most repeatable aspects to the scenario. Few PCs are willing to stand in line, so creative solutions to the encounter abound!

apologies to the many excited fans who expected to find a surprise concert at that abandoned warehouse

All PFS and SFS scenarios typically release on the last Wednesday of the month, if memory serves. Last month was atypical because of Gencon.

I'm surprised no one has asked the important question.

What have groups used as background music for when the groups are waiting in line, since part of the "hours long" experience is being forced to listen to this music while waiting for their copy.

Closest thing I could find...

just because of how funny it is.

In my headcanon, Strawberry Machine Cake is a Maoist teenage mutant pop band in the style of the RPG Tähti.

They are now the favourite band of my anarcho-syndicalist ysoki operative.

I didn't get the album because I'm an Android that couldn't be bothered by such things. Now I'm an Android full of regret. Regretdroid.

After sharing this list with some of my friends, they started asking for the brain bleach and asking why I inflicted this upon them.

True facts about Ladybaby: the band was formed by two models and an Australian pro wrestler who calls his persona Ladybeard. After Ladybeard left the band due to not feeling the music industry, the two girls continued on as a duo called The Idol Formerly Known As Ladybaby.

Scenario Pitch: The frontliner for Stawberry Machine Cake has come into possession of intel crucial to the future of the Starfinder Society, but assassins are after the group! To keep them safe, the PCs must impersonate the band well enough to make it halfway through a concert in order to lure to the assassins into a trap!

I might have just ripped that off from an episode of Scooby Doo, but hey, a good idea's a good idea . . .

They would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling Starfinders!

Charli is tired and grumpy from waiting in line, but she still nimbly avoids the big folk trying to trample her. But then she has the album in hand and all her troubles seem small. Spinning and dancing with the album, she belts out her favorite Strawberry Machine Cake song in front of the crowd.

♫ That’s great! Starts with a twist of fate
The Drift, the Gap, Triune
Tells us, ‘No need to be afraid’

The start of a new dawn, the Gods won’t let on
Where have our memories gone?
Hell with that, where the hell’s Go-lar-i-an?
Speed it up a notch, pawn, grunt, keep on
The shuttle starts to buckle with fear of flight, downsize
Wire in a fire, spin out the Pact Worlds
An alliance made for hire; unspoken conflicts rise
Tangled treaties fall and treaties form
With the Swarm breathing down your neck.

Team by team the Stewards baffled, feeling all alone
Look at that Star Stone! Fine, then.
Uh oh, the Armada grows; the lost generation
Comes in its own. Absalom Station!
Where have our memories gone
Where the hell’s Go-lar-i-an
Tell me with the rapture and the radioactive in the right, right
We’re quixotic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light
Feeling pretty psyched!

Golarian’s gone and we know it
Golarian’s gone and we know it
Golarian’s gone and we know it
And I feel fine... ♫
