I will be running a CORE game of Destiny of the Sands Part 1: A Bitter Bargain, for the PbP gameday VII. This will be in the 1st slot, running 13 August 2018 to 30 September 2018.

A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–5.

Amenopheus has learned that the legacy of the Jeweled Sages lies near the Osirian trade city of Eto, and the Pathfinder Society has pledged its support in the Sapphire Sage’s investigation of his ancient order; however the lead dried up—that was until a familiar information broker contacted Amenopheus offering an exchange of services. To assist an ally and unlock the secrets of Osirion’s past, the Society must deal with a deadly antagonist once more by sending the PCs to fulfill the bargain and collect its due. The only question is what price their foe will demand.

“A Bitter Bargain” is the first scenario in the three-part Destiny of the Sands campaign arc. It is followed by Pathfinder Society Scenario #5–15: Destiny of the Sands—Part 2: "Race to Seeker’s Folly" and Pathfinder Society Scenario #5–16: Destiny of the Sands—Part 3: "Sanctum of the Sages." All three chapters are intended to be played in order.

Content in “A Bitter Bargain” also contributes directly to the ongoing storylines of the Osirion [i.e now Scarab Sages], Qadira [i.e. now Exchange], and Sczarni [retired] factions.

I am interested, probably with a level 2. I will try and get them set up shortly.

Sorry, my barbarian will join the special because he was able to participate in the B session. I'll just sign up with this conjurer

Interested in trying this out, if a lvl 1 fighter isn't too low for tier

Silver Crusade

So far we've got a 1, two 2s, and a 4. That's a 2.25 average, so if this is all we get, we'll be low tier. If we go high tier, a 1st level character might have trouble.

Scarab sages characters are highly recommended, by the way, but it's fine if not.

Since we have a table with 4, I'll open the gameplay and discussion thread for dotting.

(In case anyone's confused by the above post, we still have room for 2 more people.)
