Here's the campaign for First Steps Part 3. At present first dibs will go to the group who participated in Part 2, which includes the following
Daniel Von Dorn
So far Astarton and Jericho have confirmed.
For anyone not listed above reading this and wondering, if I don't hear from any of the others, or they decide not to participate in Part 3, I will open a recruitment to replace back up to 6.

I thought so, but I try not to assume too much if I can (don't like removing the -ume part if I can help it, the dice gawds know I've done it enough).
So that gives three now.
I read the section on PFS items purchasing. That seems clear to me.
Well, for now, I have 444 gp, 9 sp, 9 cp in my pocket.
I buy 2 bags of caltrops (for 2 gp) and one grappling hook (1 gp).
So I have 441 gp, 9 sp and 9 cp left.
I make no other purchases for this scenario.
I'm ready to adventure !
All right, Pathfinder Society purchasing. Let's see if I can explain it Wuse Guy.
With each scenario completed, you get a certain amount of treasure listed on the chronicle sheet. For the one you received, it was 419gp. You can choose to save this money for bigger purchases later, or spend it on gear now.
When it comes to magic items, not everything is instantly available. The Guide lists always available items, which I've copied below
• All basic armor, gear, items, and weapons from Chapter 6 of the Core Rulebook, including Small and Large-sized items. This does not include equipment made from dragonhide, but it does include equipment made from the other special materials, such as alchemical silver and cold iron (see the Special Materials section on page 154 of the Core Rulebook). All mundane (completely nonmagical) weapons, armor, equipment, and alchemical gear found in any other source that is legal for play are considered always available.
• +1 weapons (2,000 gp + 300 for the masterwork weapon cost + item cost)
• +1 armor (1,000 gp + 150 for the masterwork armor cost + item cost)
• +1 shields (1,000 gp + 150 for the masterwork armor cost + item cost)
• Potions and oils of 0- or 1st-level spells at caster level 1st (50 gp or less)
• Scrolls of 0- or 1st-level spells at caster level 1st (50 gp or less)
• Wayfinder (50% discount—250 gp; see page 299 of The
Inner Sea World Guide)
Beyond those items, you need to either have the Fame to purchase an item, or you need to have it listed on a chronicle sheet. Their are specific rules in the guide for potions/wands/scrolls as well.
In a dark corner of the Coins district, on a sparsely populated block where the very buidlings seem to give it a wide berth, sits a blackened shop called Bada Bang!
Talor saunters in and makes the following purchases:
10 paper cartridges....120gp
5 regular bullets........5gp
5 cold iron bullets.....10gp
5 silver bullets.......125gp
10 powder doses........100gp
1 powder horn............3gp
Grand total: 363gp
I am prepared, my friends.
Let's do this thing.
I'm sorry GM Xzaral, but, after much thought, time considerations finally prevent me to commit to this game.
I wanted to thank you for the previous game, Xzaral, and wish you all a jolly good time playing this next opus :-). Hopefully, we'll meet again in play on these boards, when I'll have more time in my hands.
I will not really be able to spend the time necessary to purchase things until Monday morning. I apologize for this, but I am barely able to keep up with things right now as my vacation comes to a close. I will be ready about noon on Monday EST. If it is possible to get some of the role playing out of the way at the beginning of the module before I make the purchases, or if I can do it in game, that's cool because I really don't want nor do I like to make people wait.
Ok i think Wuse is just going to get two potions, both alcohol based of course. I drank quite a bit so I'll fill up on those as well. Unless of course I can cover that with an Untrained Profession(drunk) day job roll...
1 Potion, Cure Light 50g
1 Potion, Mage Armor 50g
Booze 1g ish
Leaving me with 330 gold
|Daniel von Dorn|
I'm fine either way.
Also I initially said Daniel will buy a heavy shield, but forgot that it incurs additional penalties when using it as a weapon, so I'll stick with the light shield, just add spikes.
Also Daniel will strive to donate 10% of his income to the church of Abadar, which makes 84 gp for the last two adventures.
In the end, he is left with 285gp.
I am ambivalent as well.
I am going to purchase:
Alchemical Silver Cestus- 21 gp
Acid Flask- 10 gp
2 Cold Iron Daggers- 4gp
I'll be throwing up the next post in a moment, but wanted to find out who will be around this weekend so I have an idea of how much I should continue forward. Being a holiday weekend (at least in America), I've seen a few people that wont' be around. If I see the same here, I might hold off pushing too much until next Tuesday.
Just let me know, please.
|Daniel von Dorn|
I realize I didn't specify, so quite possibly my fault, but was waiting to make sure everyone was ready before continuing on with the first encounter. It's been a few days since the last post though, so I'll assume everyone's ready and move the story along.
If anyone does still want anything from Absalom, let me know.

If anyone here is interested in running a campaign, I am in a Serpent's Skull campaign with pretty good players. We were about 3 weeks in and then the DM just switched the campaign to inactive and said he did not want to deal with the issues. Issues that we have all seen a dozen times on PbP. If anyone is interested, or know someone who wants to DM a Serpent's Skull campaign, please let me know.
Here is the OOC thread for the now inactive campaign.
We have a mwangi elf wizard, a vanara ranger, a human cleric (me), and a human bard(archeologist). If someone wants to take over, we can play with 4 players, this group is decently balanced I think, or pick up 1-2 more.
As I said, we had only played for about a month, so very little has happened and we could easily restart if necessary.
|Daniel von Dorn|
Hour by hour makes sense to me, in a way that if somebody freezes after hour 1 he can snatch a blanket and keep warm for the rest of the night.
Daniel doesn't have survival, so he'll be relying on the fort saves. I propose we put Nester in the wagon, and start a fire. Daniel will try to go without a blanket for at least first 2 hours.
EDIT: by blankets I mean cold gear sets, I guess.
Just a heads up that my PC decided to stop operating as normal today. I hope to get it up and running over the weekend (not 100% sure what's wrong, but I have a friend who knows abit). I can still post from my iPad, but I can't manipulate the battlemats that way, though I can see them. This shouldn't be too long (I hope!), but I'll see about continuing on.
Sorry I haven't managed to get things moving, but this holiday has been busier than I thought. Managed a few small posts here and there, but might not get combat pushed ahead until Monday. Just giving a heads up.
Also awaiting revised action from Daniel, and action from Talor for round 2. Not highly pressing as of this moment, but just giving a reminder.
So hectic holidays plus two birthdays makes for a busy weekend.
So the good news!! I'm about to post an update (Finally, right?).
Bad news!! Yesterday my brother fell off a roof, dangled from a ladder, then fell on his head onto some concrete. He's fine now, released from the hospital and all that. No permanent damage. But pretty scary yesterday. Of course I now get to tell him he survived a 1d6 damage fall after failing his acrobatics check (he's not a gamer, so really doesn't get it, but hey I get to laugh at him about it).
And just to top things off today, had to replace the battery in my van.
So I hope everyone had a much better Thanksgiving weekend than I did ;p
Wow, Xmas is over! Gotta say this has been a draining one for me. Hope everyone had a good holiday season (for those who celebrate).
Looking over my PBPs this morning, I realize it's been a bigger interruption than I thought it would be. So going through and apologizing to all my games for the somewhat unexplained absence and getting updates in as applicable.
I actually managed an update in here, so it's not too bad at least for this game.
I am loving this encounter, what with one dwarf shooting blind, another behind the bar looting it for all he's worth, and our lovesick bard who can't bring himself to off one of the bad guys (yet). Good times!
With that, the adventure is over. I'll work on getting the chronicle's up and sent out by tonight. I hope everyone had fun. I know there were some lengthy breaks between posts on my part and I apologize for that.
At this point everyone also can select a faction. If everyone can post their faction and a day job roll (or stated no day job roll) so I can get that for tonight, it would be appreciated.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Profession Comedy: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (3) + 6 = 9
Poor guy, I guess his heart isn't into comedy anymore. Oh well.
Thanks GM Xzaral for everything. I really enjoyed experiencing PFS play with all you guys.
Hey Xzaral - assuming that everyone has completed all of their paperwork, do you mind setting this campaign to inactive?
It would help the OCD gremlin who constantly bothers me to keep my campaigns tab tidy.
