Not just an enemy datapad, also a derelict ships computer core, or that robot head you found. Maybe it's on a flash drive or a bubble memory high density disk.

It could be a picture, text, video, a virtual object, or a compressed android mind/soul.

1: Blueprints for an ettin class super tank, with twin turrets.

Liberty's Edge

2 : An forgotten blockchain encryption key passfile from decades past.


3: A password to an account full of illegal loot. There is embedded programming that notifies the authorities of your current location when you withdraw or transfer any of it.
4: 100 shares in a security company currently protecting Absolom Station.

8. Smart Gun's registry of confirmed kills has dozens of dates in the future, the final one is YOU!


9. A lot of boring tax data for some company. Concealed within it are any one of the other options listed in this thread.

10. A library/wiki on some piece of fiction. Swapping some names and terms (there's no key here, but you might be able to work it out) turns some of the bios of the fictional characters into pieces of opposition research on 'real' (within Starfinder) characters.

Some Starflix Streams: (our play by post comes up with a bunch of these)

Weekend at Gobos: The protagonists are hauling around a dead goblin pretending he's alive

14. A digital file named "Ten Tech Hacks for Clever Adventurers". Its essentially a book, with associated digital files and bits of code, containing various optimization tricks and enhancements to get more usage and do interesting things with standard adventurer equipment, like common weapons and tools.

All the tricks "work", at least marginally, though how useful or effective they are in practice varies. However, about half of the hacks which involve loading modified software are subverted. Using the modified software will double the energy usage of the device, as it begins mining blockchains for a remote network.

15. A digital cookbook on Akitonian (or whatever) cuisine.

16. A collection of vesk jokes ("How many vesk does it take to manufacture a plasma cannon? Twenty-one. One to manufacture the rifle, and two squads to fight over it.").

17. A kalo fashion catalog (there is the Kalo Fashionista illustration in Pact Worlds, after all).

39. The complete series of the Pact Worlds equivalent of Sailor Moon, which gets really weird after Sailor Aucturn shows up.


40: Turcopy5.12 A copy program that looks and moves like a turkey. If she lightly pecks another program she will suck up all the static nearby and then lay an egg. Out of the egg will hatch a miniaturized, machine code version of it with an MC001 at the end of it's file name.

45. A collection of logged surveillance footage and intercepted messages from an Absalom Station residence that observes a family exhibiting increasingly odd behaviors, mostly related to paranoia about a possibly fictional disease, as well as unexplainable phenomena such as a family member phasing through the kitchen floor or the presence of an emaciated, pink humanoid hiding in the house.

Mixed in with the footage files appears to be an episode of a public access tri-vid show hosted by an amateurish and mentally-unstable sculptor seemingly obsessed with the same disease referenced in the logs.


46: A birthday party with a grandmother ysoki pinching the birthday boys cheeks. After s second she pauses, reaches into his mouth and takes out the cake cutter.

47. An archive containing numerous gaming dossiers detailing you, and your immediate associates. They seem to update in real time to reflect recent events in your life. Attempting to edit your dossier functions as a Mnemonic Editor, after which the dossier's data becomes corrupted and inaccessible. Though you can easily manipulate your own, there does not appear to be a way to edit the dossier belonging to another.

Dark Archive

Dark Archive

51. A large multiplayer game. In the game you and a friend control a pair of kingdoms. As the "controller" of said kingdoms you make every decision about the lives in your kingdom, from farming and families, all the way to religion and war. If you continue playing, a new world makes the holonews. It bears a striking resemblance to your game. If you stop playing, the world begins to fail. However, could you keep playing knowing it's real? (Stargate Atlantis s3 ep15 "The Game")

57. A large file contained within exceptionally strong encryption. Attached to it is a warning file in plain text: "Whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you do. Do *not* open this file! Inside this file is doom, for all who touch it. Spare yourself and the world. Don't open it."

If the players attempt to crack the encryption, it is a DC 50 Computer Science check. On opening it, they find. . . a note: "Your crime has been reported", as well as a beacon program of supernatural sophistication. If they trace this beacon, they find it sent a full report of their location to a server in Axis.

Within ten minutes, a gate opens, and several inevitables "summon" the perpetrator to return with them to Axis. If they go, the PCs find themselves before a Rokyamut, explaining why they decided that opening something clearly labeled as a great, existential danger was a good idea. If they don't, they will be subject to periodic pursuit and attack by inevitables for the foreseeable future.

58. A collection of vidlogs that gradually become more corrupted and incomprehensible as you watch though the series. The vidlogs tell the story of a small group of humans that all appear to be members of some unknown religion or cult focused on living an ascetic lifestyle, upholding an rather disturbing level of cleanliness, consuming large quantities of water, and maintaining fear of corners.

Should the PCs watch through all the vidlogs, they begin to attract the attention of Hounds of Tindalos, which may periodically manifest through corners near them, and attack.

63. A small file containing the original Doom. Can be played on literally anything with a screen and a few buttons or touchscreen controls. Literally anything.

64. BILLY MAYS HERE! No, it's actually an AI constructed from years worth of Billy Mays vidoes. And he will constantly try to sell the pcs something. Can be employed as a very intense marketing AI.

65. A series of politically incorrect shirren memes made by ysokis from last year, one sector over. Nothing special, though #32 is kinda funny.

66. A laundry list. It's just a laundry list. Of clothes. Who cryptates laundry lists behind a dc 10 computer check?!

67. ONE UNBELIVABLE TRICK THAT ACTUALLY WORK! MOBS HATE IT! CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT!
