Starfinder Society is a worldwide science fantasy campaign that puts you in the role of an agent of the Starfinder Society. The Society is a group of explorers who travel out into the galaxy in search of lost knowledge and technologies, bringing what they learn back with them to share with the people of the Pact Worlds.
In the Aftermath of the Gap
a sudden loss of history that affected the entire galaxy and resulted in the disappearance of the world of Golarion—the Starfinder Society formed and became one of the preeminent organizations of the Pact Worlds. The Starfinder Society is helmed by the elected First Seeker, and advised by Guidance, the digital amalgam of all past First Seekers’ consciousnesses. In addition, a group made up of prominent Starfinder agents known as the Forum helps decide matters of importance within the organization, and individuals known as venture-captains handle mission briefings for lower-ranking agents.
Using the Drift, the machine god Triune’s gift of rapid interstellar travel, Starfinder agents explored worlds far and near. The treasures they found and knowledge they recorded secured the Society’s prestige and wealth for generations.
317 AG: The Society’s age of prosperity abruptly ended with a failed expedition into the trinary system known as the Scoured Stars. An armada representing most of the Society’s agents and assets disappeared as a result. Under the leadership of First Seeker Luwazi Elsebo, the recovering Society orchestrated a massive rescue mission several years later.
319 AG: After defeating threats from the Scoured Stars, including the militant jinsuls, the Society turned its attention closer to home when it became the target of a misinformation campaign orchestrated by a corporate mastermind named Datch. What followed was a year of struggle that ultimately led to Datch’s detainment and imprisonment within the Lorespire Complex. After this victory Luwazi voluntarily stepped down to allow a new First Seeker to assume leadership.
320 AG: As part of a new age of exploration and prosperity ushered in by this new First Seeker, Ehu Hadif, Society membership continued to swell.
321 AG: This newfound prosperity was threatened by the Data Scourge, a mysterious digital attack on the Pact Worlds orchestrated by Historia-Prime, the controlling ex-leader of the Dataphiles faction. With the help of a digital fragment of Prime’s personality, a famous hacktivist, and many other allies, the Starfinders thwarted the plot and saved their organization from hostile takeover.
322 AG (current year): In the aftermath of the Data Scourge, the Starfinder Society fractures along faction lines. Faced with the past mistakes of the Society, the betrayal and heinous crimes of former Starfinders, the grievances of active agents, and the weakening of external alliances, First Seeker Ehu Hadif embarks on a year of change, opening the floor to all agents, giving them a platform to voice concerns, plans, and ambitions, and lobby for change. New factions are founded, reforms are enacted, relationships are mended, and trust is tentatively reforged.
But the Starfinders’ plans for a brighter tomorrow aren’t without opposition. The Starfinders face off against opportunistic criminals, internal corruption, and uncover clues involving a secretive criminal organization with a centuries-old connection to the Starfinder Society.
