Tier 1-4, subtier will depend on the players. Make sure to decide on a reasonable subtier.

Quests usually take more than 4 hours, so please schedule 4 1/2 - 5 hours for all quests. You can of course only play some quests.

Edit: Game calendar added. (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/calendar/index.xcp?id=3568)

I'm open to suggestions on what scenario to run next. Maybe not enough players for tier 7-10 yet though.

About the scenario:

A series of five Starfinder Quests designed for levels 1-4.

The Starfinder Society has dispatched an investigation fleet to a seemingly impossible world: a planet located between a nurturing sun and a voracious black hole. When a chance meeting with the local inhabitants leads the Society to discover another group of visitors who threatens this incredible planet, it's up to a group of heroes to make sure that the world's delicate balance does not break and the planet isn't sent hurtling into a black hole!

Written by Arc Riley, Jennifer Povey, Jessica Catalan, Rigby Bendele, and Shahreena Shahrani

Scenario Tags: Quest, Repeatable, Starship

Technical details:

We will use Fantasy Grounds (I have an Ultimate license) and Teamspeak.

Steps before the game:

Make sure to both apply here as well as in the game calendar (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/calendar/index.xcp?id=3568), stating which character you'd like to play.

If you apply, make sure you send me your previous chronicle sheet of the character you want to apply this chronicle to (if you already have any chronicle sheet) either here or on Discord (Fantasy Grounds channel). If it is your first SFS game, I'll at least need your Paizo Organized Play # and your faction.

If you haven't already, also make sure to either build the character on FG yourself (and send it to me) or log in early enough so you can do so on game day.

Make sure you have updated Fantasy Grounds.

FG alias and Teamspeak server can be found under GM annnouncements in the game calendar.

Other notes:

Also make sure to track your purchases on the Inventory Tracking Sheet.

Be sure to apply on time (if you can make it) as the last games were rather full.

In your own interest, make sure the party is somewhat balanced level-wise.

Some boilerplate clarifications:

Please apply on the FG forums on both the game calendar as well as in the game thread (if multiple household members are playing, one person per household is sufficient). First, it's easier to tell how many spots are already filled that way. Second, the other players (as well as the GM) know what level and class to expect from your character (if you don't know yet, simply state TBD). Third, you'll get notified about any updates if you post in the game thread (at least about the first one). Fourth, it allows the GM to determine who applied first should it become relevant. Some exceptions might apply.

Also, please be sure to check the thread for new messages occasionally. You don't have to check each and every day or every few hours but please make sure to reply to any posts that do concern you in time. Should you remain unresponsive, I'll give the spot to a player that applied after you (as I won't know whether you are still interested in participating or not). Exceptions might apply, e.g. if you state beforehand that you won't be able to respond due to traveling.

If you apply but don't show up or drop out during the game without notice, in future games I might also give preference to other players who have a better track record of showing up. I am aware though that life and technical problems can always happen, so don't worry if you have a valid reason though.

These rules are not in place to prevent players from playing but in fact to enable players willing to play to actually do so. It's frustrating if I have to turn down players if it turns out they would in fact have been able to play.

Hi I'd like to apply for a spot. I plan to play an operative with a hacker operative specialization. Thanks for the consideration.

I'm in, too. Will need to take a look at my characters and decide which one to play, which will also depend on which level we'll end up and what is still needed to round out the party.

Alright, with two others indicating thorugh other emans of communication that they'll sign on here on the forums soon, currently five spots filled.

Are there any more vacant spots? I'd like to apply my goblin mechanic, if there's any room left.

Edit: Game calendar added. (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/calendar/index.xcp?id=3568)

I'd like to apply my goblin mechanicOut of curiosity, how do you manage to play a goblin?

Just to make sure: As this is a Starfinder Society game, character creation has to follow the SFS guide (https://paizo.com/products/btpy9vlp?Starfinder-Society-Roleplaying-Guild-Guide).

It's in the Alien Archive.

He has a rather sad story.

Races from alien archive are not PFS legal, unless you've acquired a boon. And there is no goblin boon as of yet iirc

Due to one player not being able to make it, one spot would be available again.

Chronicle drafts sent.

Next weekend would be a higher tier game again but if i can schedule it, I'd give priority to #2-01 (tier 1-4) as that likely takes longer and is therefore more difficult to schedule.

If I run #2-01 next weekend, I'll likely schedule higher tier games the following two weekends.

Any preferences between SAT August 17th 4.30/5 PM GMT #2-01 Pact World Warriors (tier 1-4) (with two higher tier scenarios the weeks afterwards) and SAT August 17th 5.30 PM GMT #1-23 Return to Sender (tier 5-8) (with a tier 1-4 the week afterwards)?

As I have already played Pact World Warriors, I'm in favor of Return to Sender.
