TL; DR-Welcome to the sixth season! 90%
Basics– LET’S GO TO THE… museum? The Starfinder society is partnering with many different groups to show off artifacts of the past. What wonders will be shown, what friends will be made, and who might want to mess with this display?
Mechanics or Crunch– Paizo has a solid adventure here, with a decent balance of talking and combat. The flow is mostly talking for the first half and then combat for the second. There are a lot of NPCs to sway, so combat might get a little bit left to the side as its really only two fights. That said, it’s done well. 4.5/5
Theme or Fluff– This is a one building adventure. You really only spend time in one museum for the entire adventure, schmoozing with different people learning about things that will happen later in the season’s adventures. That is pretty standard for the first adventure in a Starfinder Society season. My one issue is the adventure is pretty short. Most of the time I run this it’s less than three hours for a five hour session. The players have fun and the story is decent. Overall, its a good addition to the first adventures of each season. 4.5/5
Execution– PDF? Yep. Hyperlinked? Yep. Solid Art? Yep. Good layout? Yep! This is what I expect from a Paizo adventure. Things are not perfect, as they give good pictures for everything except for one enemy type, so you will need your own picture. It’s not bad by any means, but it’s one small thing. 4.5/5
Summary– This is a fun adventure. It’s short and a little unbalanced in story tempo if you are a combat monster, but overall it’s a good one. I had fun, and so did my players. It’s not perfect, but definitely one that I will be gladly running for multiple groups this year! 90%
