Happy holidays! We hope you and yours are having a wonderful and healthy holiday season and new year.
For those of you who haven’t heard, John Compton dropped some important PFS news earlier this month!
Scarab Sage Faction Retiring
- Until Gencon (August 2nd – 5th, 2018), the Scarab Sages faction remains playable. Any Scarab Sage characters can remain in the faction.
- Once Gencon happens, the Scarab Sage faction retires. Any characters in the Scarab Sage faction must change their faction, and can do so for free.
- For characters with existing Scarab Sage benefits, those benefits persist. This includes traits, vanities, faction boons on chronicle sheets, and faction journal cards. No character can gain new Scarab Sage benefits.
In the post, John posted a list of scenarios that advance the faction metaplot. If you’ve got a Scarab Sage character who’s interested in finishing up the Scarab Sage experience, Quinn is GMing parts 2 and 3 of the Destiny of the Sands trilogy at Phantom of the Attic in January and February! If you’d like to play some of the other scenarios, let us know–if there’s enough demand, we can make sure they get scheduled!
The Scarab Sage faction will be “replaced” by the Concordance faction
Those of you who have played parts of Season 8 may recognize the Concordance of Elements, an extraplanar group that has allied themselves with the Society. The Concordance is interested in balance, and should be a welcome home for your more nature-oriented characters, like druids, hunters, and rangers. You can learn more about the Concordance in the related blog post.
The Concordance is expected to become available for play in early 2018. All characters will be able to get a free faction change into the Concordance when it becomes available.
Other Faction News: Liberty’s Edge Changes
There’s also a bit of news for the Liberty’s Edge faction: it looks like we have a winner in the voting for the interim (or… next?) faction leader! Namely, although Tamrin Credence won in the voting, the totals were close enough that both Credence and Karisa Starsight will contribute to the management of the faction.
