Written by Jason Bulmahn

Keleri Deverin, an aristocrat and scholar living in Magnimar, has a problem. Just a week ago, she received an invitation from her cousin Kendra, mayor of the nearby town of Sandpoint, to attend that town’s upcoming Swallowtail Festival. With the festival’s focus on the consecration of Sandpoint’s new cathedral, Keleri hoped to bring a family heirloom, the Star of Desna, to receive a blessing, but as she prepared for her trip, an unexpected complication arose that caused her to request aid from some allies.

Creating Characters
You should build 1st-level characters using the rules found in the Pathfinder Playtest Rulebook but you should also note that, although these characters will be your primary characters for Doomsday Dawn, you will need to create different characters to play through some of the later chapters.
You should work together to build a balanced and diverse party using any of the character options found in the book (subject to the specific restrictions listed below), while creating characters you are eager to see gain power, fame, and glory. You should avoid choosing the same ancestry and class as each other, so you will be able to playtest as wide a range of character options as possible.

You must work with the GM to choose a background for your PC from those listed in the adventure.

Purchasing Gear
Each character begins with 150 sp. You can purchase any common gear found in Chapter 6 of the Pathfinder Playtest Rulebook, along with any other options you gain access to from your class and feat selections.

Released August 2018 at GenCon.

Starfinder Starfinder Society Faction (Second Seekers [Luwazi Elsebo]) Starship
2 of 60 of 1

Character levels 3-6

Written by Christopher Wasko

Now possessing key information about the mysteries of the Scoured Stars, the Starfinder Society sends the PCs to a distant star system in the Vast. The idea that the non-spacefaring natives of this system have any connection with the distant Scoured Stars seems unlikely, but it's up to the PCs to confirm if a connection does exist. Other factions complicate the situation by having their own unique agendas relating to the distant world and its peaceful inhabitants.

Content in On the Trail of History also contributes to the ongoing goals of the Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsebo) faction. Content in this scenario also contributes to the ongoing year of the Scoured Stars storyline.

Released April 2018.
