The Starfinder Society is an organization renowned throughout the Pact Worlds for its many efforts in the fields of archaeology and exploration. Since its inception, its agents, known as Starfinders, have worked together to travel the breadth of the Pact Worlds, Near Space, and Vast. Among other objectives, Starfinders search for the ruins of lost civilizations and clues relating to the galactic phenomena known as the Gap. Above these agents are a group of experienced leaders known as venture-captains, who assign important missions and react to immediate threats against the Society. Above the venture-captains are an elected body of leaders known as the Forum. Members of the Forum, which include some venture-captains, are responsible for voting on major Starfinder Society initiatives and handling the day-to-day management of the Society. However, the Forum’s most important role is in the election of the Society’s nominal leader: the First Seeker.
