Starfinder Society Specials, Novas, and Table Requirements

An updated list was released to the venture-officer corps on May 12th. As part of the update, RVC approval is no longer required to schedule recent multi-table interactive specials, and no multi-table interactives must be run at conventions.

Our last public bulk update from Tonya was from April 29th, 2019, but as of this writing, it is out of date. This list is obviously not the authoritative source; check with campaign leadership to confirm the current Special rules.

Specials for Other Systems

Requirement: 4+ nova GM, at any time

These scenarios may be run anywhere, but only by 4-nova and 5-nova GMs. (And ONLY them—Venture-Officers may only run them if they meet this requirement. VCs get a +2 and VLs a +1 to their nova rating to meet this requirement.)

  • #1-98: Into the Perplexity: The First Trial (Levels 3-6)
    • This scenario can only ever be played once, and you can only get one chronicle sheet, even if you both GM and play it, and even if you GM it multiple times. Replays cannot be used on this scenario.

Multi-Table Interactive Specials

These scenarios may be run anywhere if they meet the listed table minimum, are playing the scenario simultaneously, and are in contact with each other. Previously, some multi-table interactives needed to be run at conventions; this requirement has been removed for these games as of May 12th 2021.

Also as of May 12th, 2021, RVC approval is no longer required to schedule a multi-table interactive. It is still considered best practice to communicate with your RVC when scheduling, however.

For now, all Starfinder Society multi-table interactives have the same requirement: each requires three or more tables. For SFS #2-00 and #3-00, the intermediate tiers (level ranges) count as separate scenarios for purposes of replayability.

  • #1-99 The Scoured Stars Invasion (for levels 1-8)
  • #2-00 Fate of the Scoured God (for levels 1-12)
    • Treat tiers (level ranges) 1-4, 5-8, and 9-12 as separate scenarios for purposes of replayability
  • #3-00 The Last Bite (for levels 1-8)
    • Treat tiers (level ranges) 1-4 and 5-8 as separate scenarios for purposes of replayability
  • #3-99 (for levels 1-8)
    • This scenario is still under development and is embargoed until September 20th, 2021.
