What is Starfinder?
In short: Pathfinder in space.
A little bit longer: A science-fiction/science fantasy role-playing game by Paizo.
What is Starfinder Society?
Basically the Organized Play of Starfinder, similar to 5E’s Adventurers League. Generally less flexibility for the players and the GM but characters can be “ported” to the games of other GMs.
Why should I play it?
Well, first it’s a role-playing game in space.
Second, in my personal opinion it is better balanced than Pathfinder.
Did I already mention that you get to be in space?
About this scenario
A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–4.
When Historia-7, the leader of the Dataphiles faction, uncovers the first hints of a conspiracy operating against the Starfinder Society, the PCs must assist her in uncovering the truth. Sent to a corporate space station orbiting the Pact Worlds’ sun, the PCs must earn favor with the hedonist son of a corporate CEO to gain access to the confidential files Historia-7 needs. However, the PCs are stuck in the middle when this corrupt dilettante’s proclivities and shady associations emerge to thwart the Starfinders’ covert infiltration.
Content in The Solar Sortie also contributes to the ongoing goals of the Dataphiles faction.

A Starfinder Society Scenario usually takes around 4 hours but please reserve all 5 hours to account for any unforeseen circumstances.
What do I need to know?
In order to move the story and combat along at a reasonable pace, some basic Fantasy Grounds knowledge is recommended (how to roll checks, how to target creatures, …). If necessary, a short introduction to Fantasy Grounds can be given prior to the game.
If you are familiar with Pathfinder or even 5E, you should be able to adapt to Starfinder pretty easily. There are some differences but nothing you have to worry about too much as a player.
If you are not familiar with Pathfinder or 5E, a short introduction to the most important rules can be given.
If you are in doubt of what you can do, the GM will hopefully be able to help you.
Be aware that it is highly recommended that you are familiar with starship combat for this particular scenario.
If you want to construct your own level 1 character (or higher if you already participated in Starfinder Society), you might want to take a look at the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide (free), which contains some restrictions on what options you can use. Generally, options from the Core Rulebook are allowed, options from other official sources might be allowed. I can usually have the server up for you to construct your character on GMT evenings. Be aware that building the character on Fantasy Grounds just before the game (or during the game) is not recommended.
Alternatively, you can choose one of the pregens (already built on Fantasy Grounds).
Feel free to discuss your characters in the comments so you can decide on party composition and subtier.
If you are new to Starfinder Society: You’ll need a Paizo Organized Play number (can be provided if necessary) and a faction (see the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide).
If you already are involved in Starfinder Society, you’ll need to provide your previous chronicle sheet or at least Organized Play #, character #, faction and the various starting values (credits, XP, fame, reputation), e.g. in the Society tab on Fantasy Grounds.
What do I need?
An installed and updated version of Fantasy Grounds. A (free) demo version is enough.
Discord (preferably installed) as we will be using the official Fantasy Grounds Discord server.
A headset or another way to make sure that a) you can be heard clearly and b) there is no echo.
An Internet connection.
