GM Henry Fortuna's First Steps (Sessions 1-2) [Completed] (Inactive)

Game Master Signore di Fortuna

Fresh-faced recruits gain the opportunity to prove their worth to the Pathfinder Society.


1 to 50 of 248 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | next > last >>

Here is where group 1 will post for discussions.


Just a few reminders:

Character sheets can be posted on your profile if they are clear and concise enough. Just don't make it where I have to read something longer than the dictionary ;) If you like, you may submit them via google docs. The only reason I'm being a stickler about this is because I have to check them for legality.

If you haven't already, please download and read through the guide which is here.

Also, please obtain your Pathfinder Society number as well if you need it: click on the Pathfinder Society logo on the left of the page, then find My Pathfinder Society and register for your number there.

You'll have the weekend to get this done and we'll be ready to go on Monday.


Oh and post here so I know you're alive and still interested.

Hi everyone. Looking forward to First Steps. This will be my first PbP and second PFS game.

*edit* I'll be maintaining my character sheet through HeroLab. I will post it as a spoiler on my profile and also maintain it in google docs. I'll have all this done by Monday.

Hi! This will be my first-ever play by post and only my second ever PFS game.

I'm a poor college student so I don't have hero lab but my GM who-is-sadly-moving-in-a-week gave me a bunch of pdf character sheets you can type into and they do the math for you. I will get Elianna ready to go this weekend.

Looking forward to playing with you boys! <3

I'll be working on my stats now. They should be up in my profile page in a couple of hours.

As far as I know, we are assumed to not have a faction yet. Is that correct?
Does that mean we get to select one trait now, and another trait (the faction trait) when we finish first steps? Or can we already select a faction trait from the faction we think we are going to choose?


No factions or faction traits until we finish First Steps. Just keep a slot open if one appeals to you. Really the idea seems silly, but in a role-playing context it's actually logical.

Also, my fillable Chronicle sheets have a drag-down menu that put in a faction for you (apparently, a default blank was too strange a concept) . So either a)I stick Andoran on there and you can disregard it, b)I can hold off on Chronicle sheets until we finish all 3 sessions and I fill it with your chosen faction then, or c)do option a and then send you correct reprints later.

Also, when creating your characters, if a trait, ability, feat, etc. comes from a book other than the core rule book make a note of it for ease of reference. College drained my mind long ago and my retention isn't what it used to be :P

Okay, I think I'm done! (Tell me if anything is missing, GM.)

Looking forward to playing with all of you!

I'll go with this option.

OK, Good to go. Tweaked stats a little bit from previous post. Posted references for non-core abilities in a separate spoiler block.


Kurth: You should probably set up two stat blocks for when you're raging and when you're not (mainly for my benefit :P), re-check your math for your equipment as well and your Will save should be 0 not -1.

Grand Lodge

Female Elf Magus 1

Yay!! My sheet is ready to go. I put it up on google docs just like you asked!!

Elianna Morgethai

Will our characters meet for the first time in the adventure, or can we roleplay before we start the game itself? Do any of you use any IM programs to chat? Can you tell I'm excited to play as Elianna? <3


I will be finalizing my character sheet this weekend. I will try to have it complete by sunday evening, tomorrow I will not be in town otherwise I would complete it then. Thank you for putting me in for this campaign.I look forward to my first pbp game!

Thanks for pointing these out! Should be fixed now.

+1 to your question whether we can start roleplaying now. I'm excited to start as well!

I'm afraid I stopped using IM a couple of years ago.

It sounds like we are all ready to rumble, I certainly am ready to go when GM Henry is ready to go!

Hmmm. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Spire Defender and Spell Dancer can stack, since they both modify the Magus' armor proficiencies in one way or another.

Grand Lodge

Female Elf Magus 1

I asked my local GM about that and he said that spire defender changes the starting profiencies which only say "light armor", but spell dancer changes the (ex) ability called "medium armor" and "heavy armor" which aren't the same as the ones the class gets at 1st level.


I know I'm lagging behind. I apologize. Little sleep + reviewing 10 characters = meh. I'll look over Elianna tonight at work. I'll try and get Vim and Luthor looked over in the next hour or so.

Kurth: You are good to go.

I haven't used an IM program in ages.


Spire Defender and Spell Dancer do stack because they do not affect the same things. There is no rule prohibiting the combination. However, from a personal standpoint (which doesn't count), I really don't like using two archetypes because they're generally incompatible lore-wise.


Elianna: Your character is good to go, but, just letting you know, there are no action/hero points in PFS.


I apologize for lagging behind, but when you call a locksmith at 8 am on a Sunday, it's bad all around.


Luthor: Three things: 1) Your vindictive trait cannot be used until session 3 is completed since it is a faction trait. 2) I would prefer that you change Variant Channeling: (Protection) since Protection is not part Cayden Cailean's portfolio or domains, you can choose from Ale/Wine, Bravery/Valor, Freedom, or Strength. 3)Any adventuring gear you'd like to buy with your remaining 73 gold? ;)

Grand Lodge

Thank you Mr GM!! Hehe yea I know but I saw AP and thought it would be a great place to list Elianna's arcane pool points. <3


Elianna: Ha!

Vim: You are good to go.

1. Oh yeah, used to making 'regular' PFS characters. Removed from the sheet.

2. Good catch, I didn't even think about that when choosing the Variant Channeling. I chose Ale/Wine.
3. :) Purchased.

Updated in my profile.


Alright, Luthor, you're ready for action.

Just waiting on Illias to submit his character for review then we can get started.


I've put everything under my society character section, Let me know if you need any more information. It feels a little light to me but I am not too sure what i'm doing.


I've loaded it into google docs and i've sent you a private message with the link. let me know if i need to adjust.

Qadira

M Halfling Rogue (Scout) 1

Ilias, your stats posted in your profile add up to either a 17- or 18-point buy, depending on where you put your racial +2. Maybe you forgot to do that?


Ignore those stats I re did everything and posted a Google doc to fortuna


My stats are now corrected and a full form of my specifics are linked. Please let me know if i have left anything out.


Illias, why do you have two sets of armor? Apply one to your AC. What is a custom container and where can I find it? Everything else appears to be fine.

Guess I'll crack open the ol' gameplay thread here shortly.


Gameplay is now open. Please observe these two rules:

1) Respect spoiler tags. Read them only if meant for you.

2) If you ruin any part of the plot in any way or act suspiciously well-informed, I reserve the right to remove you from the group to wander the wastes of the Abyss eternally.

I had problems today with the site. Seems like some Paizo goblins got their spanners in the mainframe.


I couldn't for the majority of the day yesterday.


Same here. They must be fixing what ain't broke :P


@Kurth: Yes, it says Assignment #17. It's supposed to convey that Valsin gives out petty (or not so petty) assignments all the time.

@Group: I'm running a mid-grade fever so I probably won't post in gameplay today.

Thanks for the info. Get well soon!

Paizo posted on Facebook yesterday that they were having ISP issues, which caused all the downtime. Guess they got it figured out.

Summer fevers suck. Hope you feel better.

I'll be away for the weekend, so any posts will be by phone and thus probably short.


Elianna:
Are you aware Mordant Spire elves are opposed to Pathfinders when it comes to Azlanti artifacts? There is a point where the group will be looking for one and I wanted to make sure you were okay with that fact coming up.

GM:
I am, which is one of the reasons I'm glad I came up with the story I did for her, with her father from Mordant Spire but her mother from Kyonin, and her training being a blend of both. She might feel a little weird about it, but it should be fun to RP!! <3

So sorry for being the last to post since we've started. I'm helping one of my best friends pack up for his moving away from here this week and it's taking a lot of time and energy :(

Qadira

M Halfling Rogue (Scout) 1

Looking at the first round of this imp combat. Are we supposed to post in strict initiative order or just post our intended move whenever then let it play out and correct as needed? We seem to be jumping around.


I intended for folks to post their actions whenever they wanted to and correct them if needed. *shrug*

Grand Lodge

Female Elf Magus 1

Posting in a second but I'll be gone for 24 hours helping my old *sob* local GM move tomorrow :(
