Venture Captain in Paris, France | Please MSG me if you are visiting France | We have weekly games in English too

You must use a level 1.
Can be a pregen (then you apply credit to a 1st level character of yours)
Can be your own character.
If you do not do all the parts of the Quests (as a player) you can replay the scenario parts you did not do at a later game session, to complete them all (but to do so you must NOT play another scenario with the character before doing this)
You can play the scenario again with another 1st level character


Not sure if anyone else has noticed but some of the stats for the level 4 mechanic pregen are incorrect. I haven't looked at the other pregen levels or classes, but I noticed it when making one for alevel 4 pregen game. For example his saves are listed as F +3, R +1, W +3 and his base saves for level 4 are 4, 4, 1 not including mods.. His attacks appear to be off as well as his bab is +3, +2 dex so should be +5 with his pistol, not +4.. I bring this up because we are not supposed to change anything with pregens but this is obviously incorrect.

It looks like his saves should be instead F +5, R +6, W +2..

I noticed too... for the same reason (prepping my pregen level 4).
It depressed me so I stopped prepping it! DENIAL

Let me know if they managed to fix the most egregious mistakes!

Everyone else... I still have not receieived the Con support package for PBP Gameday VI, so I am guessing that it will show up after Tonya returns from vacation (a week after we get started.) At that point, we should have a digitized Welcome to Starfinder Boon that we can use.

Incident at Absalom Station is a SFS Evergreen!

I posted here so that everyone would know!

Oh, by the way, Mechanic 4 is the same. All bugged.
Lvl 1 & lvl 8 seem okay (lvl 1 is better than lvl 4 in some areas! Quig loses stuff when he levels up, silly rodent)

Great news re. Incident at Absalom Station (will change my SFS plans, cool!)

Sovereign Court

Posted this in my scenario's discussion, but figured it would be worth posting here too.

Mechanics question: besides more/bigger damage dice, why would I choose a 2handed weapon over a 1handed weapon? Unless I'm missing something, they have the same static modifier to damage.

Liberty's Edge

Venture Captain in Paris, France | Please MSG me if you are visiting France | We have weekly games in English too

I think more/bigger damage dice is the answer...
And the reason to choose a one handed weapon vs. a two handed one, when there are no shields etc. could be to have a ranged weapon in one hand and a melee in the other.

The two handed versions often have special qualities that aren't available in one handed versions (like reach).

Spreading the word out.

I decided to host one more table for SFS 1-00, sign up link is there -> GM Khaoz PbP Sign Up. Planned start date is September 4th. New players feel free to overwrite in slot 1 and 2 for table 1.

Please remember SFS 1-00 IS NOT Replayable, don't bite more than you should chew =P .

Thanks everyone! Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.


Where can you find the pregens? I have been searching for them, but cannot seem to locate them. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

My google-fu may be failing me here, but I can't seem to find anything about charging batteries in SFS. Are we allowed to? Do depleted charges carry over from scenario to scenario? Do we need to pay for charging services? Is this covered in the scenarios?

I don't have my CRB on me at the moment but there are charging stations for batteries iirc.

Liberty's Edge

Venture Captain in Paris, France | Please MSG me if you are visiting France | We have weekly games in English too

page 234 - CRB
Recharging Stations

(it also states that you can use generators, under the descriptions of the ranged/melee weapons using batteries)


Spoiler:
Book reader 2/Japanophile 1/Cat Animal lover 1/Undecided 3

The fact there were charging stations wasn't an issue, it's the fact the guild guide doesn't seem to mention anything about batteries or services other than spellcasting. It makes it seem like we'd likely have to either buy new batteries or buy the armor upgrade that charges as you move.
Edit: it doesn't seem there's a quick answer to this, so I posted something up in the guild discussion page.


Wouldn't their inclusion in the rule book mean they were a valid option in SFS? I assumed everything in the crb was fine until otherwise mentioned in additional rescources.

Liberty's Edge

Venture Captain in Paris, France | Please MSG me if you are visiting France | We have weekly games in English too

I dont' see why you'd need anything specific in the Guide.
It's pretty clear in the CRB about how/where to find etc..

Lantern Lodge

Sign up sheet Dragon.

I assumed batteries were kind of like arrows. Just an inconvenient but small tax on ranged combat. And at higher level a way to slow down the barrage of shots as you have to use a move action to change them.


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

To be honest, I intend to ignore the battery issue in most SFS scenarios unless we spend weeks away from Absalom Station. Count charges like ammunition, buy extra batteries, and store them on your ship.

Huh. That's irritating. Both John Compton and Thurston Hillman said that they'd gotten an update pushed out on those when this came up at the GM Gencon Feedback Session. Maybe it was given to the web team but not updated on the site yet.

:/

Their intent was to get those egregious errors (saves and skill checks) fixed. I'll mention it to Thurston and ask what we should do.

Hmm

All the level 1 pregens are accurate though? I'm running the quests this Sunday for my in-person group, so if any of them are inaccurate still I'll probably just remove them from the selection pool.

I ran the quests yesterday with 6 pregens. There might be errors on those sheets, but nothing that had an impact on gameplay as far as we noted. In other words: I would include all of them to the selection pool

The pregens are fun! You should totally still use them, even if some have errors.

Play-by-Post Gameday has started! Yay!

I hear some GMs are trying to get a headstart on Welcome to Pathfinder and Starfinder chronicle sheets, and are trying to figure out what event code to use. Both Welcome Boons may be found in the GM Kit linked in my header.

The Event Code is listed on the First Post of the PBP Gameday 6 Announcement Thread.

How do I make an alias be SFS?
For that matter, I don't remember how to do PFS either, but I've got a couple so I must have figured it out at some point.

Might be a good thing to put in the Flaxseed Station campaign tab too.

Edit: I figured it out. Might still be a good idea to put instructions in the campaign tab though. I figured it out mostly by accident.

I've read through the SFS guide finally and can't really find a clear answer. If playing a pregen, are we still able to slot a Faction boon and earn faction rep?

I believe that answer is yes.

Page 6 of the guide says.
"A pregenerated character has boon slots, though such characters rarely have boons to use in these slots. In the event a pregenerated character does have such boons, such as Promotional boons or temporary boons granted by the adventure, she can slot them as normal."

You can but keep in mind I think the pregen only scenario doesn't allow for it.

But don't those automatically give faction credit?


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

Okay, let's clarify matters. Thursty told me that no boons may be slotted for 1-00 EXCEPT faction champion boons. You may always slot the boon that allows you to get faction credit!

Hmm


GM Hmm... for those of us who seem a bit out of the loop, how do you get the boons in the first place?

Per the SFS guide it starts that each character is given one (1) Faction boon at character creation. You may purchase additional faction "Championing" Boons with fame.

And assuming since you decide at the beginning of the scenario which character gets the credit from the pregen you play. You can use what faction champion boon that character would otherwise have access to on the pregen you use.

Just my thoughts please let me know if I'm wrong.

"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

Nope, you're right on target.

This is confusing stuff... I wound up clarifying with Thursty right before GenCon.

Hmm

Lantern Lodge

Sign up sheet Dragon.

I'm still curious about how to acquire additional faction champion boons.

Is it that you have to spend fame from that faction for them. So you must have somehow acquired bonus fame with a faction that you don't have a boon slotted for (I know there are scenarios that allow this) in order to be able to easily game reputation with that faction?

Or can you spend fame from one faction to get a factions champion boon with another faction? (which would be a little odd).


My understanding is that you get Fame, which is faction neutral and expendable, and Reputation, which is directed towards whichever faction you have slotted for a scenario and only increases.

Increasing Reputation gives you some social bonuses within the specific faction, and also serves as a prerequisite for several powerful/exclusive boons, which are paid for with Fame.

Champion boons cost fame, but have no reputation prerequisite.

Hopefully that was clear/right!

Lantern Lodge

Sign up sheet Dragon.

That makes sense. I thought fame was tied to the faction that granted it. There is wording on page seven that implies that fame is with a faction (and is kind of aligned with how PFS does it).

The chronicles however seem to also line up with your interpretation, fame as a generic pool and reputation as a faction based resource.

Thanks

Hmm

Funnily enough, that's not actually what the scenario says. It has its own special exception for reputation/fame.

It says you can't slot any boons, even champion ones, but you still get reputation/fame for a character for any champion boon the character for which credit is being applied to.

Andrew, you are thinking of the quest series. SFS 1-00 is the 4th level pregen special. It has similar language not allowing characters to slot boons, but does not have a note on chronicle sheet for gaining reputation.


Not sure how I can think of the quest series since I haven't run them, read them, or played them, but have run SFS #1-00.

Looking at the scenario now. It's in the Primary Success Conditions Section of the scenario on Page 18. Look at the last sentence. It's also in the Secondary Success Conditions as well on the same page.

Well, there it is. Not the place I thought to look when double checking. Thanks for pointing it out.

*AV:T is Attack Vector: Tactical and is a 3d space combat game that uses real physics in a fairly easy to use and play format. So acceleration, not speed for example.
