[PbP Gameday VII] (PFS 3-07) GM Valen's Echoes of the Overwatched (CORE)

Game Master Lysle

Starting August 16th

Maps



This is my recruitment thread for a CORE run PFS Scenario 3-07, Echoes of the Overwatched. This game is part of Game Day 7 and will start on August 16th (two days after Game Day starts).

Full Disclosure: I am hoping to use this scenario and a couple others in order to level up a core PFS character that I currently have involved in another scenario. I encourage role-playing and thoughtful descriptions in my games. Nevertheless, I am planning to run this as a quick-paced game.

Game Expectations
I ask for a posting rate of 1-2 times per day during the business week and at least once over the weekend, though I realize (and expect) that real life can get in the way of fun at times and that not all players will be able to meet that pace. At such a posting rate, I expect to complete the scenario before the end of the first session for Game Day. I expect folks to occassionally be unavailable for a period of time. If I know that I will be unavailable for some reason for more than 24 hours (or 48 over a weekend), I will post such. I request and expect all players to do the same. I already anticipate being unavailable to post on August 23 and 24 and September 7-9.

I will bot players who do not post anything within a 24 hour period (or over a weekend) and will request each player have botting instructions in place before the end of the first briefing.

Before the game begins, I will post a botting policy similar to those used by other GMs on these boards.

Play-Style
Although there will be opportunities for role-play, expect things to move quickly. I will likely use GM rolls for Initiative, Perception, and a number of other checks. Expect players rolls to primarily be limited to combat.

Number of Players
As this is an earlier scenario, I'd like to keep the number of players to 5. I am offering spots first to players from two of my recently concluded Core games, before opening it up to others. In each instance, seating will be first come, first seated.

If you wish to play, go ahead and post here with your responses to the following:

We do, indeed. Looks like we are definitely low tier for this one.


I’ll take it. I have a 1st level Barbarian eager to go. I’ll make his sheet look nice tonight and post when I do.

looks like Coreguy will have to wait to go back to the museum, but Barcher just got back from the plane of earth and could use a nice day at the museum!

We are currently at 5 players and I had advertised this scenario run with a limit of 5 players (though I do have a soft spot for dwarves). As players may have foregone other games in order to sign up for a limited game, I will put it to the first five players to vote as to whether they mind a sixth.

If I receive no objections (or get a consensus) prior to August 13th, then I will open the game up to six players. Even one objection means that I will keep the present cap of 5.

Players can post here or PM me with their vote if they prefer.

This seems to me to be the most fair way to do it while also trying to be respectful of those who already committed to a 5-player game.

If the cap remains in place, I will PM Ironshanks if a player does not appear for mustering prior to the start date.


I’m fine with letting him in. Nothing like a good dwarf to keep you company.

Scarab Sages

I'm totally OK either way. I don't have a real feel for how challenging a Season 3 scenario would be for a Core group.

Grand Lodge

Any decision on this yet by chance?


I haven't heard any objections, so welcome aboard!

Thanks, looking forward to it.

Scarab Sages

Hey there guys, hoping that there is still enough time to get one more player in. I can bring a lvl 2 cleric (looks like you are missing one).

Let me know if it's not too late. Otherwise, I am good to go!

Edit - I have just noticed the 5 player limit advertisement. No hard feelings if you don't have room for another. Just thought that posting here doesn't hurt. Let me know either way. Cheers!

Sorry, Yabatha. I appreciate your interest, but this game is full (even more so than I had initially planned).

I may be running another core game in the near future as I still need one more GM credit after this one to level up a PC in a current game, so keep an eye out for it. I'd be happy to reserve you a spot.

Scarab Sages

No worries Valen. Thank you for your consideration - I would love for you to reserve a spot for me in a future core game. Hehe - there aren't enough of them out there at the moment. Best of luck for the game!
