GM OfAnything's Darkest Abduction

Game Master KingOfAnything

Standard high tier game of 6-23 The Darkest Abduction.



1 person marked this as a favorite.

Recruitment for a standard table of 6-23 The Darkest Abduction (7-11).

The occasional unexplained disappearance is common enough in Ustalav, yet a rash of unexplained abductions has led to fearful speculation on the verge of panic in the streets. Hoping to improve the Pathfinder Society’s reputation in Ustalav, Venture-Captain Basia Kalistoff has offered her lodge’s services in putting an end to this crime wave.

“The Darkest Abduction” contributes to the ongoing storyline of the Scarab Sages and Sovereign Court factions.

*This scenario calls back to 1-47 The Darkest Vengeance

Already confirmed are a lvl 11 sorcerer, cleric, and a large cat. Game to begin around April 7.

The Exchange

Would love a spot.

Player: PatheticWretch
Character: Clandelve Hammerhand
PFS# 132,076-1
Faction: The Exchange

1. Aside from a couple of feats like Step Up and Disruptive, Clandelve pretty much pounds on things with his hammer and shield.
2. Clandelve is a dwarven brute, best known for clearing out the entirety of Thornkeep, though he has recently participated in several smaller missions.
3. Outside of combat, Clandelve relies on intimidating any foes, though he does have some knowledge of engineering and dungeons.
4. In combat, Clandelve likes to get close and personal, where he relies on his fine armor while trading blows. If I need to bot, all of my dice are in a dice spoiler at the bottom of my character sheet. My preferred tactic is to get as close as possible and then attack with hammer and shield, hopefully knowing the enemy down.
5. I can post 1-2 times on weekdays, probably once over the weekend. I post all day Mountain Time, USA.

Race/Class(es)/Level(s): Elf Wizard (Evoker) 10
Faction: Dark Archive
Advancement: Slow

1) What special rules, boons, or corner cases should I know about regarding your character?
I cast fireball with a casterlevel of 12. The +5 additional damage from evocation specials is not multiplied with empowered spell.
I can loose a prepared spell to spontaneously cast fireball, applying metamagic as a full round action (not 1 round casting time)
I can adjust the element of my fireballs as a free action (archetype)

2) Why is your character in the Pathfinder society? A few sentences about your character and his or her previous adventures, either in or out of character.
There is still knowledge to gain within the Society, although the number of wizards from which I can learn something is very small diminish with every mission I go on. My most recent trips were to explore an ancient Jistkan city.
Before that I almost single-highhandedly solved an assassination attempt on Drandle Dreng. Loosers should never have 'attempted' in the first place. Never attempt, always succeed.
I played and GMed Darkest Vengeance, but this character does not have the chronicle

3) What are your strengths, interests, or skillsets outside of combat?
I am a font of knowledge about all topics. My floating disk carries two huge chests filled with all sorts of stuff.

4) What are your go-to combat tactics?
(Please also include this on your character sheet as a Bot Me! spoiler. You can even have your dice rolls ready to go.)

Bot me spoiler will be made
Usually I cast fireball to kill the mooks and let my companions deal with the bosses. If needed I can assist them with spells like haste or counterspell any spells a caster might want to cast. Note that I prefer to hit casters with magic missiles or stuff like that instead of actually counterspelling their spells.

5) Will you be able to post 1-2 times a weekday, barring occasional days off (Cons, Work, Vacations, etc.)? What time(s) of day are you usually online to post?
I normally post at least once a day during weekdays. Normal posting times is my commute (7-8 and 17-18 CET). Some evenings I also post.

6) Other stuff
I need to update profile for the last mission.

1) What special rules, boons, or corner cases should I know about regarding your character?

Domains are Luck and Defense (a sub-domain of Protection). You may want to familiarize yourself with the Bit of Luck domain power.

2) Why is your character in the Pathfinder society? A few sentences about your character and his or her previous adventures, either in or out of character.

It is an excellent way to see the world and meet people. I like to travel, see new things!

So far I have been lucky and been assigned to many of the missions with my lovely wife, Zahra.

One of our most interesting trips was to rescue the current Master of Scrolls, Sorrina Westyr. We saw some beautiful (but regretfully unfriendly) creatures on that trip and it gave me a better appreciation of stone. We have also traveled to Jalmeray and Varisia.

Early in our careers we helped the Minotaur Prince, Naur Spiritskin, and have had some delightful conversations with him.

3) What are your strengths, interests, or skillsets outside of combat?

I have studied many of the religious texts and know quite a bit about the various common religious practices. I am also pretty good at recognizing when someone is lying. Still, there are others who are much better at both skills.

It helps that being from Katapesh, I am very friendly!

Kn: Religion and Sense Motive

4) What are your go-to combat tactics?
(Please also include this on your character sheet as a Bot Me! spoiler. You can even have your dice rolls ready to go.)

Call upon the powers of Shelyn to protect and bless us. Wish luck on someone about to attempt something dangerous. Keep everyone alive.

Cleric buff spells, Bit of Luck on others, Channeling to heal. Will update profile before the game begins.

5) Will you be able to post 1-2 times a weekday, barring occasional days off (Cons, Work, Vacations, etc.)? What time(s) of day are you usually online to post?

Yes. Usually from around 10am to 10pm CDT. Posting varies by day, with Tuesday mornings and Wednesdays being the most busy but even then I can easily do three posts a day.

I can also post on weekends.

Nothing Really. Just you average hi level strait druid. Buffing the battle kitten.

2) Why is your character in the Pathfinder society? A few sentences about your character and his or her previous adventures, either in or out of character.

Strength-hello, battle kitten. Also very keen eye and very good at tracking. especially if I wild shape with something with scent.

4) What are your go-to combat tactics? Buff the battle kitten with spells. Usually prepare them before the scenario and put them in the spoilers. Once that is done, transform into a tiger and get in there. FYI- My stat block is not up to date, he power leveled recently over a con and have not updated him.

____
1) What special rules, boons, or corner cases should I know about regarding your character? He is pretty standard. Very high AC, fey foundling for improved magical healing.

2) Why is your character in the Pathfinder society? A few sentences about your character and his or her previous adventures, either in or out of character. Vrald initially joined the Society at the request of his family to represent Taldane interests. Since the reorganisation he has taken on a wider brief to ensure that honourable nobles are not taken advantage of by these large cross-country organisations. However he has also found the society an excellent mentor for his skills and often engaging in worthwhile activities beyond tomb looting.

4) What are your go-to combat tactics?
(Please also include this on your character sheet as a Bot Me! spoiler. You can even have your dice rolls ready to go.)
Vrald is a front and centre fighter. Typically starts with normal attacks, and then if he finds no difficulty upgrades to power attacks.

5) Will you be able to post 1-2 times a weekday, barring occasional days off (Cons, Work, Vacations, etc.)? What time(s) of day are you usually online to post? Generally yes. My time zone however is in New Zealand, so sometimes I'm just asleep when others are posting heavily.

Nothing too unusual, just a fire based blaster sorcerer.

2) Why is your character in the Pathfinder society? A few sentences about your character and his or her previous adventures, either in or out of character.

He joined looking to find himself. First it was about finding information about his father, who was rumored to be a half-red dragon orc that was a direct descendant of Daralathyxl, The Sixth King of the Five Kings Mountains. But the Society has helped him by giving him a purpose besides himself, which has on more than one occasion steered him from the evil urges of his bloodline.

He recently helped a samsaran discover some things about a forgotten past life. It gave him hope that one day he could find more about his heritage as well.

3) What are your strengths, interests, or skillsets outside of combat?

Not having many skills of his own. tends to aid the more competent outside of combat. Does enjoy fishing in his spare time. Uses it to contemplate and refocus (and make a few coins).

At range: Scorching Ray or Magic Missile if particularly fire resistant.
