Jarlsblood Witch Saga | Poblano's Scoured Stars Incident | Silverhex Chronicles

Welcome and thanks for signing up for this Gameday VII run of "Ashes of Discovery" folks!

First off, I'd like to introduce myself a bit to those of you who haven't played with me before. I'm GM Mjolbeard. I've been playing SFS since its debut last year, much of which has included PBP as a venue. I highly value the game, and love to do as much as I can to throw in a lot of role-play with my roll-play, as the saying goes. With that in mind, here are a few expectations that I will hold for myself as well as my players in this game:

1) Please try to maintain a posting rate of 1+ post/weekday. Weekends are almost always busier for me than weekdays in one way or another, so I may or may not post during that timeframe. I'd accept the same from you. Within those posting rates, I'd love to see as much role-play from each of you as you feel comfortable with. Particularly good role-play can potentially earn things like circumstance bonuses on various rolls.
2) Please list important information about your character in the Classes/Levels section of your stat block. Please also have your full character sheet available in your character's profile. If you're at all unsure what I'm talking about, feel free to take a look at my SFS characters for some examples.
3) I'll roll initiative for combats and perception for potential surprise situations. I'll also provide information for knowledge checks in spoilers with the DCs listed. Please refrain from reading the spoilers unless you make the DC with the appropriate skill check.

That's it for the most part. As far as start date goes, this game will be run during Session 2 of PbP Gameday VII, which starts on October 1, 2018. That will be quite a wait, but it does give us all plenty of time to gear up for the game. For now, please provide the information for your character requested below using the template I've provided. You can also dot in on the gameplay thread with your character of choice.

With all that out of the way, all that remains is for me to say thanks again for joining me, and happy gaming!

Hi, I'm thrilled to be joining you! I'll be bringing my Shirren Operative Zez'ka. She'll probably get some GM credit before we start, so I'm not quite sure what some of her details will be right now. She'll be either level 1 or 2 by the time we play.

Thanks!

I'd like to sign up. But seeing how this is still 3 1/2 months away I can't specify which character will be available by that time. It will most likely be a lvl 1 character that I'll have made to play with one of the new races I've got access to now

Davrin is a ghost operative. Like the others, he'll will likely be getting some chronicles on him before the start of the game, so will fill in the other details then. In fact, there's a chance I might be starting a new character by then instead.

Hey folks! Welcome! I'm excited to have you all on board.

As a general note, it should be no problem for you to add a chronicle or two to your characters before we get started. I know this is a long way off. I just wanted to make sure I got the game up right away.

@Revvy - This is fine. Feel free to pick whatever works for you when we get closer to the date.

@Kuey - Hey there! I'm glad I can finally get you in one of my games, especially after the lottery didn't include you in my Wrath's Shadow game! I definitely owe you a game or two after the great adventures you've taken my characters through in the past, so welcome aboard!

The Exchange

I would also like to throw my hat in the ring for this, I also have no idea which character I'll be playing but I can say it will likely be one of the following:

Verthani Cyborg (if I like it from Armory)
Elven Corporate Agent ExoCortex Mechanic
Quest for Sky Marbleheart Dwarf
Witchwyrd Priest of Abadar
Half-Orc Eoxian reality show survivor

If we're going low, it will likely be the witchwyrd, so

This is my first experience is anything like Gameday VII; signing up for a game so far in advance feels weird. Cournae is playing in her very first session right now and is also signed up for another day during the first session, so all them details will likely be in flux until the end of September.

Excellent! Looks like we've got ourselves a FULL TABLE. I'm looking forward to playing with you all when October finally rolls around. In the meantime, feel free to dot into the gameplay thread.

This was Davrin Emalon, aka kuey.

Yup, I went ahead and created a new character which I'm going to bring in for this game come Oct. (Turns out Davrin is likely to hit level 3, and would like to keep things in tier.) Meet Speck, the cyberborn ysoki technomancer / divine champion.

Hey folks! As you may have seen in the Flaxseed Station discussion, the scenarios for Gameday have arrived. I've been reading over the ones I'm prepping, and reading this one over reminded me to make sure you all know this scenario has the Repeatable and Starship tags. So make sure you bring someone with skills they can use in a starship combat!

I'm looking forward to gaming with you all in a couple months!

I had accidentally signed up for someone's Duskmire Accord when I meant to sign up for this Ashes of Discovery. All my bad. However, I wanted to put my interest down as an alternate if a seat happens to open up (hopefully not, hopefully you all have a great game, but just in case). Thanks. :)

Hey guys, just wondering if there is a spot still open for one more player. I would love to bring a lvl 1 mystic to the table. Let me know if there is room still available.

If possible, I'd like a spot or waitlist.

Hiya folks!

Wow, looks like there's still some interest in this game. We are creeping towards October, and it seems the site has leveled out for a while (*knocks on wood*), so it's nearly time to start getting things sorted out here.

Since we have so many folks interested, I'm thinking about opening up a second table so everyone can play. At the moment, we have 9 players interested, so we could have a table or 4 and a table of 5, which works nicely.

Before I just arbitrarily split the tables by sign up order, though, did anyone sign up specifically because they wanted to play with another player or character? Or does anybody have any preferences about party make up they want (for example, "I want to be the only Envoy so no one steals my spotlight" ;D )? Let me know, and we can start getting things in place.

Our originally anticipated start date is a mere 3 weeks away! I look forward to playing with you all!

Operatives
Zez'ka - Daredevil - lvl 2

Mystics
Uafluozhaheeed - Xenodruid - lvl 2
Emissary-to-Him - ? - lvl 1 As I don't know what type you are, I will say that Devastator is not SFS legal (just in case)
Mordin Gimhargruest - healing - lvl 2
Cournae - Akashic - lvl 1

Technomancers
Speck Zezener - lvl 1

Solarians
Chirrk Do'Tak - Armor - lvl 2

Is there room for one more?

I can try to add a soldier (assuming his current game ends on time). I also have a Solarians and Technomancer available.

Absolutely! That'll bring us to two even tables of 5.

Go ahead and post your soldier's info that I requested above. If you need to change to one of your other characters, you can just give me the new info. Welcome aboard, Wolfflauer!
