Today we’re going to take a look at the two most recent Starfinder Society Scenarios that are currently available for purchase, and let you know we thought. Although you’ll find references to events in each that I liked or disliked, and comments about specific characters, these scenarios are not explored in detail. It’s not my intention to spoil the events in these scenarios, or give summaries and full reviews, but to share my opinions and provide recommendations. That said, if you want to avoid even minor spoilers I recommend you check out a different article. Whether you intend to use them in home games of the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, sanctioned scenarios for use with the Starfinder Society Organized Play, or just want to read a nifty new adventure, we’ve got you covered! So sit back, and get ready to explore the Pact Worlds!
Scenario #1-14: Star Sugar Heartlove!!! is a Tier 3-6 adventure written by Eleanor Ferron. It takes place at Songbird Station, a beautiful Temple of Shelyn located in the Diaspora that is part concert hall, part space station and all awesome! It has the Faction (Dataphiles) and Faction (Exo-Guardians) scenario tags scenario tags and does not feature starship combat. Following a lead discovered in Scenario #1-07: The Solar Sortie, Historia-7 has uncovered a secret corporation that has altered and erased Starfinder data and files. Historia-7 has uncovered the identity of only member of this unnamed group: a man with intense security! Luckily, this same man is scheduled to attend the sure-to-be-amazing mega-concert put on by Strawberry Machine Cake! Even luckier? Your friend Zigvigix (leader of the Exo-Guardians) happens to have tickets and has invited you! So, while you’re attending the concert of the decade, you need only find Historia-7’s suspect and determine if he’s a person of interest or a red herring. Oh, and don’t tell Ziggy! Those of you who have played #1-01: The Commencement or #1-04: Cries from the Drift will get a bit of extra enjoyment from this mission, while those of you who have the ‘Star Sugar Heartlove!!!’ boon should definitely slot it! And then? Get your hands ready to do some clapping! You’ve got a concert to get to! And this concert? AWESOME! This scenario starts with a ton of fun flavourful, short, social encounters (many of which have benefits other than the obvious). You get to chat up some friendly skittermanders, meet some superfans, and generally have a blast while going about your reconnaissance mission. The first combat is fun, and the entire last section of this scenario? AMAZING! Epic! Over the top! Awesome! Any number of other positive words! It’s just a fun, exciting scenario. I loved it! Definitely giving five out of five stars!
Scenario #1-15: Save the Renkrodas is a Tier 3-6 adventure written by Andrew Hoskins which takes place on the wild continent of Ukulam on the planet of Castrovel. It has the Faction (Acquisitives) scenario tag as well as a brand new tag: Vehicle! Yes! Although this scenario doesn’t feature starship combat, it does feature a wonderful vehicle chase! It’s got a really fun premise and sees your PCs attend a gala to raise money for the conservation of the nearly extinct renkrodas. Their mission? Make the powerful people in attendance your pals, and ensure that you leave a good impression of the Starfinder Society. That’s it! At least on paper. Obviously, there’s much more that happens in this scenario, and to be honest it’s one heck of an exciting, whirlwind! Such a blast! A word of warning, though, it’s quite combat heavy. As for NPCs, Radaszam, leader of the Acquititives accompanies you to the gala. In addition there’s two new characters who might see further cameos in the future: Muldoi, a kasatha naturalist and security officer, and Poshment Jamjet, a bleaching techno-musician. I give this scenario four out of five stars, though I strongly debated giving it the full five out of five.
Both of today’s scenarios were just amazing! I hope you have the chance to play them. I know I want to!
