Yes, every mod has faction missions for each faction that gets handed out before we get to the main mission. IRL, they get passed out as handouts, in PBP, either the DM posts it for each player or send it to you via the PM system.

Andrazi and Hadassah you are completely right. Just looked it up and I've been doing it wrong the whole time, applying racial mods first.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

Awwww yeah. See this is interesting because along with our main mission we each have something else we are trying to do. It will be interesting to see if and how this affects our main mission.

Sczarni

Male Human(Varisian) Cad 6 (HP 26/52; AC:24, T:13, FF:22; Fort:+9 Ref:+6 Will:+6; Init+2; Perception+0)

Well I doubt they'd interfere with the main mission. But it does give us something else to do while traveling through the mod.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

this shall be fun. Especially since i belong to Cheliax. Imma be spreading da chaos

Sczarni

Male Human(Varisian) Cad 6 (HP 26/52; AC:24, T:13, FF:22; Fort:+9 Ref:+6 Will:+6; Init+2; Perception+0)

Uh, read Cheliax again. They hate chaos... They love law and order, almost too much.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

yes, however they want to do this by spreading chaos. Like the anarchy theory, only out of pure and utter chaos comes true peace. They want to throw Golorian into chaos so that the Cheliax lodge can rise from the ashes. Thats how i got away with being chaotic even though my diety is lawful. By the idea that only chaos can bring law. Or at least thats how i read it.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

but now im going to check this in the PFS guige just incase

Sczarni

Male Human(Varisian) Cad 6 (HP 26/52; AC:24, T:13, FF:22; Fort:+9 Ref:+6 Will:+6; Init+2; Perception+0)

Okay.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

reread it, im a idiot idk where i got all of what i just said. I probably just skimmed it and misread it.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

I was sort of already building my character and how i wanted him to be so i probably wanted him to fit into that and just idk. lol All of that could still apply in hiss mind however that doesnt represent the factions thought. I may need to work with the gm now to fix his alignment. I want him to belong to cheliax still but now i feel his alignment isnt right for that.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

Ps: thanks for pointing this out to me. And the reason i want my character to belong to cheliax is to have him have a sort of underlying evil. Just to give him more of a corrupt feeling. Like a rogue spy.

Edit: not that he is evil, just corrupt. A "rogue" if you will. Like a hireling. A person who does espionage missions for money. But i want him to act towards his group nice. Just because he feels they are a part of the mission and a vital part. I give my characters a lot of depth even though most of it is in my head lol

Sczarni

Male Human(Varisian) Cad 6 (HP 26/52; AC:24, T:13, FF:22; Fort:+9 Ref:+6 Will:+6; Init+2; Perception+0)

Well, it's alright, people interpret things in different ways. You can still be a spy working for Cheliax. They require all types of skill sets. You can still be Chaotic as well, not everyone likes everything the faction is about. I think your last few sentences are right on. Some are just part of their faction because they have to be, others like Andrazi do it because they believe in the cause.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

Ok cool :)

Sorry, been in and out all day. Got my wife an English Bulldog today (12 weeks) so kinda busy with puppy stuff. On the bright side, by whippet loves the little guy.

No worries. I just got back from the field, s I'm catching up, too.

Just wanted to point out, I am not going to cause issues with the game, I am just RPing, really.

@Ranvar, (not that it's a really big deal), but in PFS your alignment MUST be within one step of your Patron Deity's Alignment, regardless if you are a divine spellcaster. In all honesty, Cheliax probably isn't for you, though I'm not telling you to change it, I just do not think it is what you would want for your character. The Scazarni, Taldor, possibly Andoran (more of a good than evil), Osirion or Qadira might be better options.

Scazarni are like a combo of the mafia and gypsies. They use underhanded tactics, both physical and political to achieve their goals, which is basically to gain power. (not evil, but definatly not good).

The Shadow Lodge are rebels against the leaders of the Pathfinders, believing that the leadership is corrupt and basicaly uses and throws away Pathfinders for their own gain. They are sort of like the Union and rebel alliance, but still loya to the PFS in general, just not it's leaders. (off the top of my head, this might be the best fit for you).

Taldor is sort of like Rome as to starts to fall. They hav a lot of money and history and fewer and fewer morals.

Andoran is sort of like early American/French post revolution, still trying to spread their humanistic ideals of freedom and democracy.

Qadira is a middle-eastern faction all about procuring trade and coin, regardless of obsticles.

Osirion is sort of the Egyptian faction, recently beginning to regain power and influence as they collect ancient relics and magical might from thir ancient past.

Sczarni

Male Human(Varisian) Cad 6 (HP 26/52; AC:24, T:13, FF:22; Fort:+9 Ref:+6 Will:+6; Init+2; Perception+0)

While I agree Cheliax probably isn't for him, if he's not a divine caster he can legally worship whoever he wants. It may not make sense to do so, but he can do it. The restriction on alignment is only for divine casters.

Andoran

23/23, AC:17, T: 11, FF: 16, CMD: 16, Fort +7, Refl +2, Will +6 (+2 vs Charm/Comp), Init: +1, Perc: +6, CG Human Male Cleric 2/Cavalier 1, Greatsword (PA): +4, 2d6+7

You can worship anyone, true, but all characters in PFS are still stuck with the One step rule for a Patron Deity (not just divine classe). It shouldn't be an issue though if he doesn't have any Feats/Traits/Etc that requries a (or that specific) Patron Deity.

From the PFS Guide 4.1, page 7 (under step 10)

"Religion: Characters can elect to worship any deity
listed in a table of gods in the Core Rulebook, The Inner
Sea World Guide, Pathfinder Chronicles: Gods and Magic,
or any other source listed as an official Additional
Resource. Characters may elect to worship an evil god,
but must always be within one alignment step of their
chosen deity.
For clerics, this is an especially important
choice, since the deity’s alignment determines whether
the cleric channels positive or negative energy, a decision
with significant tactical implications for the cleric and
her allies. Characters who do not receive powers from
a divine source may choose to be atheists or to have no
deity at all."

Sczarni

Male Human(Varisian) Cad 6 (HP 26/52; AC:24, T:13, FF:22; Fort:+9 Ref:+6 Will:+6; Init+2; Perception+0)

Oh, carry on then, I missed that part. Though all it means is he would have to be True Neutral to worship the big A.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

Well then. I forget everything is backwards in PFS. But understandable so. Im going to pm the GM (that rhymed) to see if i can change my stuff around and what he suggests

Andoran

23/23, AC:17, T: 11, FF: 16, CMD: 16, Fort +7, Refl +2, Will +6 (+2 vs Charm/Comp), Init: +1, Perc: +6, CG Human Male Cleric 2/Cavalier 1, Greatsword (PA): +4, 2d6+7

Yes, my understanding in that for non-divine characters, you can be one step on each alignment. I also believe that this is one of those things that will be cut from the Guide at some point in the future.

As far as I'm concerned, (nudge, nudge) he can be an "atheist" on the character sheet with a fondness for the big A. :)

Sczarni

Male Human(Varisian) Cad 6 (HP 26/52; AC:24, T:13, FF:22; Fort:+9 Ref:+6 Will:+6; Init+2; Perception+0)

Yea, he can do that too.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

I honestly prefer my non clerics to be atheist, but i know some GMs who would raise a fit for not picking a diety.

Andoran

23/23, AC:17, T: 11, FF: 16, CMD: 16, Fort +7, Refl +2, Will +6 (+2 vs Charm/Comp), Init: +1, Perc: +6, CG Human Male Cleric 2/Cavalier 1, Greatsword (PA): +4, 2d6+7

Backwards in PFS?

Andoran

23/23, AC:17, T: 11, FF: 16, CMD: 16, Fort +7, Refl +2, Will +6 (+2 vs Charm/Comp), Init: +1, Perc: +6, CG Human Male Cleric 2/Cavalier 1, Greatsword (PA): +4, 2d6+7

No it's fine in PFS, and honestly, I wish it where true for Cleric's as well for the exact same reasons to avoid individual's issues with real world religions.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

Well not exactly backwards, just different than regular Pathfinder. In reality PFS is more to what it should be, its just getting used to the new rules :P

Sczarni

Male Human(Varisian) Cad 6 (HP 26/52; AC:24, T:13, FF:22; Fort:+9 Ref:+6 Will:+6; Init+2; Perception+0)

Well it's a little different, but for necessity.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

lol ok cool

Andoran

23/23, AC:17, T: 11, FF: 16, CMD: 16, Fort +7, Refl +2, Will +6 (+2 vs Charm/Comp), Init: +1, Perc: +6, CG Human Male Cleric 2/Cavalier 1, Greatsword (PA): +4, 2d6+7

Wow, I just realized all that was in the Gameplay thread, not discussion. I'm going to go back and delete the post not related to the in character gameplay.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

yeah..... i thought about saying something

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

deleted all of mine

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

I only post when there is something directed at me, or a story advancement. Too many posts just makes the story harder to follow.

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

true. I just want this to move faster, i like pathfinder but i hate going and seeing nothing is going on :P

Sczarni

Male Human(Varisian) Cad 6 (HP 26/52; AC:24, T:13, FF:22; Fort:+9 Ref:+6 Will:+6; Init+2; Perception+0)

Yea, I think we're waiting on the Dm for this one. I've attempted to leave for the ship twice now. :)

Cheliax

Male Human Rogue/spy 1

Yeah, but to no avail, partially our fault but in the end we the lady to talk :P

Sczarni

Male Human(Varisian) Cad 6 (HP 26/52; AC:24, T:13, FF:22; Fort:+9 Ref:+6 Will:+6; Init+2; Perception+0)

Pretty much.

Hi folks, sorry, this flu has been kicking my butt. back on my feet and will get back to daily+ postings. Thanks for your patience!

Shadow Lodge

No worries. Take your time and heal up my friend. And keep the kids rom getting sick too.

Shadow Lodge

Was there any more information about the Aspis Consortium or cult before she leaves. I know but this character hasn't encountered either really.

Otherwise, im good to go.

Second that on the sickness. I have three girls at home 6 and under and all of us including wife are sick.

Grand Lodge

Faction missions are out. I leave it to you to make them public or private as you will. The only interaction of any note was the one I posted with the two Iomedean knights. You have of course all come into contact with dozens of other people as you walk through the crowded business district to the wharves.

Grand Lodge

Also, here is the information you know from your Pathfinder training on the Aspis Consortium.

The Aspis Consortium is a trade organization with interests in many parts of Avistan and Garund. What distinguishes them from other trade groups is the size of their operations, and their willingness to do whatever is necessary to accomplish their goals. While it is not unknown for merchant groups to sell weapons to both sides in a conflict, the Consortium might take it further and actually have a hand in starting the strife to begin with. Because of their interest in valuable relics and knowledge, they often find themselves in conflict with the Pathfinder Society. Pathfinders should assume that any Aspis Consortium member is an enemy, either openly or behind the scenes, and act accordingly.

Membership in the Consortium can be broken down into two groups: merchants and mercenaries. Merchants are the brains behind most Aspis operations, deciding where profits can be maximized and how the goals of the organization should be implemented. Second are the mercenaries, who provide protection for the Consortium's operations and provide guidance on military matters. The bulk of the people working for the Aspis Consortium are often unaware of whom they serve, only knowing that they are paid well for their service.

Agents of the Consortium are often distinguished by metal badges which they carry concealed on their bodies. Bronze tier agents are strictly regional players, and are made up of former soldiers, experienced merchants, or seasoned mercenaries. They are chosen for their expertise in a given field or region, and are generally unaware of their employer's larger machinations. Silver agents guide the work of the bronze, coordinating regional operations and gathering intelligence for their superiors. Gold agents organize Consortium business within a large geographical region.

I was meaning more in character, but no worries, I didn't know a few things in there, too. :)

Out of Character, is there anything about Lassala in this scenario? I don't want details, (until after the game), but I've always found her mystery interesting, and would like to know if there is any stats and history in there I can read later.

<Edit>Curious, the Wiki says she is LE now, and I'm pretty sure recently she has been noted as LN with the Runelords twisting her teachings towards the evil side. Is it just me, or has this changed?
