Interest Check: PFS scenarios run as a non-PFS campaign


I've been looking over the Starfinder material and I am keen to try it out but I am not yet confident in my ability to craft a game wholesale. But PFS scenarios off "mini-adventures" that could reasonably put together into a plotline. As time goes on and I get the feel for it, I could start crafting my own material.

Understand, I would like to add homebrew elements which means that this game will not be eligible for PFS credit, since PFS games have to adhere precisely with the rules. I don't intend to change a lot but I want the freedom to be able to do so.

I am currently running two online games, one homebrew and the other Pathfinder RotRL. The homebrew game has been running for a couple years now, and the Runelords game will hit the six-month mark in a few days.

I would expect this game to run at a slow pace, maybe one post per day or two. Normally no more than one post per weekend.

How much interest is there in this type of game?

All the interest.

I've played most of the PFS scenarios prior to season 8, but I still would be interested. Given my memory for the adventures, I don't I'd spoil anything.

I think it sounds fun. I stopped playing PFS several years ago because I prefer longer plots, but the scenarios were always interesting, and stringing them together into something new sounds intriguing.

Sounds interesting. I've done PFS less that a year, so a lot of the scenarios I have never played. I also prefer longer plots with the same characters mostly. You can get more interparty roleplaying that is mostly lacking in regular PFS games.

I would join you in this adventure.

I would definitely potentially be interested in such a campaign! How adverse are you to third party products? I've got a few ideas for Pathfinders using Drop Dead Studio's Spheres of Might,especially with their new "Gish" book Archetype playtest.

This sounds very interesting. Is there a particular season you have in mind?

Dotting. Sounds interesting. I've only played one or two society scenarios over the years, so it would be something new for me.

Sorry, is this Starfinder characters or Pathfinder characters? I see references to both in your post, so I'm not sure which it is.


I would like that clarified too.

I am very interested in playing Starfinder. I purchased the rules and am going to start running it. Playing it is something I want to do.

Sorry, I should have been more clear: I was talking about Starfinder (SFS) scenarios rather than PFS scenarios. And Starfinder characters. I don't know Starfinder nearly well enough yet to be converting PFS scenarios to Starfinder, but that is a cool idea for the future.

I know there isn't a lot of selection of SFS modules yet. But they make a good starting point I think, and they are mostly low-tier.
