Hello Patient People!

You've all been invited here because you signed up for Hmm's Starfinder Table Two. You signed up without a start date. You signed up without even knowing what adventure I'm thinking of GMing for all of you!

Well, now your patience is about to be rewarded. When my other table, Claim to Salvation, ends, I'd like to do a different Starfinder adventure with all of you. Chances are that by now you've got into one of the other SFS adventures, so I'm thinking of doing "Incident at Absalom Station" from the new Dead Suns Adventure Path since Thursty has hinted strongly that it will be sanctioned right at launch.

However, I am not tied to this... I could do one of the other Starfinder Adventures that will be out by September. Is there any one that you folks are hankering for?

Please let me know!


The problem with Starfinder at this point is I feel like were back in a video library from the 80's - theres some cool looking covers on the shelves and a sweet sounding blurb on the back, but we have no way to pick one over another :P

My luck we'd pick the Uwe Boll epic.


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

So... Let's make this easier. What are you already signed up to play? I could do Claim to Salvation again, or I could do something else. I was thinking Incident at Absalom Station mainly because it's the one I'm certain that none of you would have signed up to play yet.

Hmm


First: Woot! I get to play with HMM.

If Absolom Station is sanctioned, I'm good with that. It might actually be my preference with this group.

I will have run and played 1-00, played 1-01, and the Quest. So I'm also game for 1-02 or 1-03. I'm also cool with another 1-01 (hopefully as fun to replay as Confirmation).


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

Woot! I get to play with Shifty and Blake's Tiger!

We can go with Incident at Absalom Station. Thursty has indicated that it will be sanctioned prior to GenCon, and launch with Starfinder. Since this table will be starting once Table 1 (Claim to Salvation) finishes, I expect that many of you will have gotten the opportunity to play other tables before then.

Why don't you both go ahead and dot and delete to get this into your campaigns?

Hmm


sign up

i really have no preference. just happy to be here.


Xorn Rogue 1 / Fighter 2

Works for me. Absalom Station looks fun!

Dark Archive

I am in!

Sovereign Court

I have no preference.

This is my only Starfinder sign up, trying to ease myself in.


This is my only SFS sign up, once we know whats going on I can go fishing for the others :p


GenCon will be my crash course/introduction. :)

I will probably return with a few hundred character concepts (and the ability to run PF 9-01 by heart).

Sooo... apparently the pdf has dropped for subscribers who have the package out for delivery...


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

It has not dropped for me yet. I keep checking!

I can say... artwork looks gorgeous, I will lay claim on any space ship the 6 of us will acquire!

*goes for shopping before working on a char*


Mine dropped... reading the rules now...


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

Aaargh! Mine has not!

Hmm


Sadness. I wanted the pretty LE cover, so I didn't subscribe--I don't need three copies--but my hard copy is 4 to 8 days away. :)

Dark Archive

@hmm

do you want to run the AP using the PFS rules? or as in campaign rules?

I actually have 4 copies inbound... 1 pdf, 1 LE, 2x normal CRB (1 I will give to my gf and the other one I am selling)


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

I'll be likely running the sanctioned bits, but we'll see what happens when I get hold of the AP, and get a chance to read both it and the sanctioning document. I usually love Campaign Mode, but I am not sure what Campaign Mode would offer in this case!

I am curious to hear what sort of characters you eventually put together!

Hmm

Sovereign Court

Hmm, I've subscribed to the AP line.

Would you give me a heads up on any parts I can safely read?

When I get my own copy, I'll let you know!

My downloads are happy! I just got my shipping notice!

You may safely read the "Gazeteer to Absalom Station", which contains tons of glorious detail about the setting of Absalom Station! It is wonderful!

Still waiting for my shipping.


Whee! Book here. Building commences.

Sovereign Court

PDF out in 17th, UK stores giving 5th sept release date.


Current character ideas:

Human Mechanic (exocortex), Priest theme: Missionary of Triune (Brigh-aspect) whose exocortex serves as an intermediary.

Android Operative (ghost or explorer), Spacefarer theme: Calculating sharpshooter (sniper focus) or gunslinger (small arms focus) trying to prove his value as a free individual

Lashunta Solarian, Spacefarer theme (or Ace-Pilot or Xenoseeker): Eager explorer of the galaxy who just wants to see as much as he can see of what's out there.


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

Just popping in to let you know that Starfinder character registration went live!


There's not that much equipment to choose from, but boy do 1000 credits go quickly if you're making a fighter build.

I'm bummed that I won't be able to earn Tier 1 as a Dataphile for the PbP boon. Tier 1 would push me into level 2 (barring some sort of boon in Commencement or the Quests that adds an extra Reputation).


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

I suspect it will confuse a lot of people, since it confused me initially. You will be able to earn it once you have three adventures earned with the Dataphiles. You can totally earn Tier 1 at second level.

Hmm


Can you play Book 1 as a sanctioned adventure with a Level 2 character?

EDIT: I didn't want to accidentally play my character past tier.

Dark Archive

When do you want our chars Hmm?


Played my first session today (the Quests) and it was great fun.

I assume we are still going with the AP (Dead Suns) or have we had alternative ideas come up in the meantime?


OK. I've been leveling my -701 Mechanic for this. I actually got to use him in 1-01 and a pretend for the Quest. Then I volunteered to run 1-00 for a GM-less table (their choice was me who had started prep for GDVI and had two scenarios or someone who never played SF before). But GMs can't downgrade their over Tier chronicles to Level 1, can they?


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

I don't think you can downgrade 1-00, but I need to read through the SFS guide once more. Treat is as a hanging chronicle that will apply when you hit level 3.

Incident at Absalom Station is a SFS Evergreen!

I posted here so that everyone would know!

Hmm


Oh, that's cool.

And, yes, having now researched and researched (due to hearing conflicting information), I have come to the conclusion that only Players can downgrade Pregen earned Chronicles.

My 4 Fame stare longingly, so close but so far, from Dataphile Tier 1 status.

Sovereign Court

Can we read that blog post, or is it spoilerific?

Sovereign Court

I'm leaning toward Human Technomancer at the moment (unthemed).

looks cool.

Dark Archive

I will create a solarion for this


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

Hey everyone, it looks like we'll be starting up in Session 2 once Solstice Scar ends. It looks like both my tables will be ending at the exact same time.

Do you all have characters made for this? If so, I would love to see them so I can have a chance to look ahead a bit at what you are bringing. I am now going to start setting this game up and prepping it.

Hmm

Dark Archive

I will try and get mine up tomorrow... have an idea so will post when done!


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

That sounds excellent! I am looking forward to seeing what all of you come up with!

Hmm

Sovereign Court

I've forgotten how to make a PC without herolab!

Might take a day or two.

Wayfinders

149000-701 Female NG Feychild Gnome Xenoseeker Envoy 1 | SP 7/7 HP 10/10 | RP 5/5 | EAC 14; KAC 15 | Fort +1, Ref +4, Will +2 (+2 Fear & Despair, +2 vs illusion) | Init: +2 | Perc: +0, SM: +4+1d6 | Speed 30ft | 3/3 - dancing lights, ghost sound, and token spell. | Active conditions: Fatigued and Fan girl squeee!

I know. The HeroLab situation sucks. On the other hand, I made Charli pretty quickly by hand.


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

I used the SFS character template in GM Kit in my header. It worked pretty well.

Hmm

Blake here. I haven't added the two chronicles he has or purchased the few things on his grocery list, but this is Hawthorne the Priest of Triune (Brigh).


"Doom Girl" Online VL // PbP EventsPbP Gameday GamesPBPGD6 New Player Game Finder // PbP GM Kit // Gallows of Madness Maps & Handouts // Incident at Absalom Station

That looks awesome! All it needs is a list of your chronicles, your boons, and your 'Bot me' spoiler! Oh, and an Avatar, if you can find one that fits.

Hmm


I'm thinking of a Vesk Icon Mechanic.

Bear with me.


I was holding out hope for Starfinder avatars, but that may be a while.

Sounds fun!

Bret's -702, Mikka is Vesk Mercenary Mechanic. Still will punch things, but very bright and likes fighting alongside her drone!

I love it when people get goofy!

Hmm


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I'm thinking more "Big Jims Galactic Towing and Recovery", an up and coming trid-show about a Vesk Mechanic who performs Macguyver like hasty repairs - Macguyver meets Tim the Toolman. The Drone will have the 'mount' modification, and it will be a loud quadbike he rides around on with his toolbox welded on the back.

I sort of got the idea from one of the classic real-life Aussie TV shows:
Bush Mechanics
Mostly filmed in native Aboriginal dialects, but these guys are a hoot and the subtitles are solid. Also, Australia really is that wild.
