GM Brayden's PFS First Steps (Group 2): To Delve the Dungeon Deep (Inactive)

Game Master Brayden Green



I was just informed that one of my players has job conflicts and won't be continuing on.

Level one PFS characters only. In fact, they should probably be new. I will be giving first session credit (gold, xp, etc) to anyone that jumps into the game, so you won't need to do any catching up.

Also, I would prefer that this be to those that don't have regular access to PFS, so that they have a chance to play.

GOod luck with the submissions. Let the games begin!

Sovereign Court

Ooh, I made this character when PFS came out but never got into a game so she has lain dormant, so I'll have to do a quick upgrade to PF but...

A young Taldan aristocrat who has joined the pathfinders to escape her overbearing mother and make a name, and a fortune, for herself.

She plays the callow youth but it is a front for acres of cynicism.

I'll update and lay out a bit more info.

Sovereign Court

Mivvy is a daredevil bard, who uses oratory and comedy (usually scathing, satyrical or both) to undermine her foes and cheer her fellows.
She will be branching out into dancing (because silence is a terrible thing) as well.
Mivvy likes to carry a rapier because it is the weapon of the upper classes in which she was raised but prefers to use her whip because tripping people up (and keeping them at a distance) suits her style.
She also likes illusions.

A quick sample from character description:
4. What is your favourite colour? If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? If you had 100,000 gold pieces to spend, and you couldn’t buy anything even remotely useful, what would you spend it on? A menagerie of exotic animals? A magical pleasure barge? An ostentatious harpsichord? A personal chef who follows you around? A parcel of swamp land? A fossilized dire sloth?

"Oh, my darlings, Burnt Orange is very in this season, and I'm lucky because I can really wear sophisticated colours, which a lot of ladies just can't."
Black, it flatters, and hides.

“And that salad Divvy makes at that little place behind Kaegums' is absolutely divine; Guinea Fowl, poached eggs and that strange varisian sausage – scrummy!”
It is actually very yummy indeed.


Well met, Mivvy. And good job, indeed!

Sovereign Court

So, how do I receive PFS credit? Not done this before.


Well, when we choose the player I'll roll you over into the group and report it. We haven't done that exactly, yet. I'm going to let my players decide who they want to bring in. :) BUt things look good from your end. :)

Oh, sorry, I over-interpreted your positivity. My bad.

I read through the gameplay thread for In Service To Lore and it sounds like a neat group: made me want to know what the old lady was really up to, and what it feels like to fight the deadliest halfling in Absalom. :D


Also, I am looking for a couple players in my other group due to work concerns, so I suggest posting over there as well to increase your chances (I don't consider that spamming, they are two completely separate groups.)

You can post the same character there, or submit another. You can't play the same character (if one is selected for both, for example) per PFS rules, so maybe have a backup just in case. Because that other group has 2 people to fill, and I stole a player from that group for this group, they have first say on whom they want.

*** HERE IS A LINK *** to that thread, just in case you need it.

haha, no joke! Part of my reason for porting over a player from the other group was to get a fighter in on the mix. And thanks for reading :) I, and the other players definitely take that into advantage.

And they *are* fun. This is one of the funnest groups I have ever gamed with in a pbp format.

Porting my submission over from the other thread :-)

I would like to present Gormogon Locke, a Neutral Half-Elven Inquisitor, who wields a scythe :-)

Appearance:
Gormogon is a rather dour-looking Half-Elf, with raven-colored hair, and dark, coal-black eyes.

He typically dresses in a well-worn explorer's outfit, which covers a threadbare, albeit still functional, suit of leather armor.

His most distinguishing features are a broad-brimmed hat, the brim of which is decorated with teeth from a wide variety of creatures, and a large scythe, which has also clearly seen *quite* a lot of use.

Background:
Originally from Karcau, in the Province of Sinaria, part of the Immortal Principality of Ustalav, Gormogon was shunned by the great and good because of his mixed blood. Never quite able to forgive his Elven father for 'cursing' him with human blood, he has vowed to dance on his sire's grave - not by killing him, but by outliving him. To that end, he was drawn like a moth to the flame to the Cult of Urgathoa; the promise of immortality was too good an offer to pass up.

Not content with the 'lesser' forms of unlife, he set his sights on Vampirism, currying favor with the Cult's Dhampir and Vampiric members. Of course, they viewed him as little more than a disposable grunt, but he was initiated into enough of the Cult's mysteries that Urgathoa began to grant him some small crumbs of power.

He would probably have beavered away in quiet obscurity for decades, but as luck would have it, he was given a 'break' when one of the Cult's Dhampirs had a mid-life crisis, swore-off the Pallid Princess, and 'converted' to the worship of Pharasma. Understandably, this annoyed the Cult sufficiently that they put a bounty on the miscreant's head - a promise of vampirism to the minion who brought back the traitor's head.

This galvanised Gormogon, and he followed his quarry to Absalom, where he learned that the Dhampir had sought sanctuary with the Pathfinder Society. Knowing that as an outsider, he would have no luck prising his quarry out of such a protective cocoon, he joined the Society, as well; all the better to track the traitor's movements. Gormogon takes the long view on things; he can afford to be patient, biding his time for decades, if necessary, until the traitor makes a mistake, and he can then strike. Of course, the opportunity, as a member of the Society, to track down any number of lost Urgathoan artifacts also appealed more than a little bit...

Knowing that the Pallid Princess is not welcomed by all, Gormogon normally 'moonlights' as a 'travelling devotee of Pharasma' (the irony of his ruse is not lost on him), and he describes his 'sin eating' as 'shriving the victim's soul', even though he knows full well that his ministrations sends them straight to Urgathoa's arms.


Welcome Gormogon.

We will be selecting within a day or two, and starting by Sunday or Monday

Scarab Sages

An olive-skilled Half-Orc stands tall before you in loose fitted, simple clothing and sandals, carrying little besides his sturdy looking longbow.

Where do I come from you ask? I sometimes ask that question myself. I was found in a basket near a monastery in Lastwall. Rather than killing me outright, the monks took pity on me and brought me up in the ways of self reflection. I struggle at times with my, shall we say, less refined side, but wisdom and meditation have helped me to be at peace with what I am. Unfortunately, word of my presence spread and I had to flee my home for my life. I have become a Pathfinder to help the downtrodden, the cast-outs, and to explore the wisdom of many peoples. I offer my hand, and my bow, in friendship.

I am relatively new to PFS. I have recently GMed the First Steps series, but I have not had a chance to play any of them yet. This character is a Zen Archer. Do you have one spot open or two?

Added a link to the character sheet in my profile. Waiting on equipment purchase until I know if I am in or not.

Any news on who gets the free slot?
