About the adventure

The cold, logical landscape of Aballon is a place some deem to have too little life for them, just not enough... passion, per se. But, to those outcast hybrid creatures, creatures of metal and meat (or just metal), the beautiful, steely city of Striving is a haven for those not biological enough to fit in elsewhere. The natives to Aballon, the anacites, were created long ago by unknown creator beings simply known as The First Ones. You will be an explorer working for a group of varied technological beings, only known as the Cold Iron Collective. A relatively unknown group, The Cold Iron Collective has little to no mentions on any infospheres outside of those on Aballon, where they are mentioned as early as 95 AG, and only talked about as a secretive group that many chalk up to conspiracy theory. And yet, this shadowy group has hired you to investigate the nine ancient cities of the First Ones, which anacites are forbidden of entering under ancient law. What will you find there? Who knows. One thing is for sure, not even your employers seem to know what lies, hidden on the streets of... The Reliquary of the First Ones!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Mic required, should have played at least 2 or 3 sessions of Starfinder to understand the basics of it. Starship combat will not happen often, if at all (depending on character decisions) so those rules shouldn't need to be fully memorized. Webcam not needed, but totally allowed.

What I provide

I will have basic tactical maps and rules as memorized as possible.

Gameplay details

This game will be consisting of lots of on planet exploration, with each of the ancient cities acting as it's own, large urban dungeon. Frequent expeditions back to Striving or other nearby Aballonian cities is expected, as players will have to stock up on resources. Once you dig deep enough into each city you will be able to create a base of operations, where you can set up comm stations and order resources from Striving or sell the stuff that you find there back, hefting heavy credits to help fund the operation.
