Scarab Sages after Season 9?


Pathfinder Society

Scarab Sages

First, I'd like to preface this by saying that I DO NOT want to see any spoilers here for what happens in the Season 9 adventure(s) focusing on the Scarab Sage faction. I haven't played Salvation of the Sages yet, but now that Neferanu is finally in-tier for it, I look forward to doing so.

My question is specifically about the language about faction changes in the Season 10 Roleplaying Guild Guide. Page 32 states:

"Halfway through Season 9, the Scarab Sages faction became inactive. While the Pathfinder Society campaign is unlikely to produce more content to support this faction, characters who are already members of the Scarab Sages can retain their membership in the faction and continue to spend Prestige Points on faction benefits. Characters who are members of the Scarab Sages can also switch to another faction at a cost of 0 Prestige Points at the beginning of the next adventure they play after August 2, 2018."

If my Scarab Sage character stays in the faction, can he still earn Scarab Sage-specific boons on Chronicle Sheets from previous seasons' scenarios?

The Guide states the faction is "inactive," not "retired," and the section on Retired Factions (page 33) still lists Scarab Sages having access to Osirion boons. So I think this means that nothing has really changed other than not getting any new faction-specific missions in Season 10, but I would appreciate clarification on that before I next play Nef.

Irori be with you.

Yes. This is the difference between the Faction becoming "inactive" vs every other Faction that was "retired".

My understanding is the only thing that changed is PCs that weren't SS as of 2-AUG-18 can't join the faction after that date. Those that were SS on 2-AUG-18 get a free switch before next table, if they want it. That's all. Everything else about SS stays the same.


OK, thanks! That's exactly the kind of confirmation I was hoping for!
