In order to learn about the esoteric faith of the Empyreal Lord Korada, the PCs are sent by the Pathfinder Society to explore an abandoned aasimar temple to the benevolent deity. But what they find there is anything but an opportunity for peaceful reflection and enlightenment.
Greetings Pathfinders! Though this is my first attempt to GM a PFS game in play-by-post, this style of gaming is very familiar to me, as I've been running pbp games on another board for more than 20 years.
This game will begin on 8/13/18, and is a part of PbP Gameday VII, which boasts a great many games you might be interested in (besides this one, of course!)
As noted in the title, this game is geared for PFS characters between levels 1-5, and if there is heavy interest in the first week or so of recruitment I will take the first 12 folks that have signed up and select six based on party balance as far as character level and classes at that time so as to allow those that aren't recruited to continue to look for games elsewhere before Gameday VII. In this manner, I expect to hopefully have the decision made by Friday, June 29th so those that aren't selected can find other games. If the recruitment thread hasn't reached six players by that time, I will just take first come, first served and make the announcement that the adventure is full after six players have signed on.
When you apply, please post with the character profile you will be gaming with. I strongly prefer character sheets completely filled out at the time of application, but so long as I know character race, class and level I can allow further time to create the character sheet itself in the profile - so long as it's completed no later than July 31. Character profiles that have applied (and been accepted) without a complete character sheet by that date will be dropped from the adventure and I will seek replacement characters before the 8/13 start date.
I can, and usually will, post every day and would like to see the same from my players, since this is intended to be a fast-moving adventure. There will certainly be exceptions to this rule on my part, and I have no problem if the same happens on the part of my players as well, but please don't make it a habit. If you are unable to keep up with this place, I do ask that you apply to another adventure that better matches your own expectations and needs.
I do use maps, but I use a Roll20 map that players cannot manipulate themselves. Instead I'll have a grid set up, so that you can give me details as to how you move in combat situations by specifying which grid square you intend to move into - and preferably your route to get there, especially if you might be threatened by AoOs, or spell effects, or any other hazards such as difficult terrain and the the like. The less specific you are in your post, the harder it is for me to try and figure out your movement and though I'll try to do the best I can to do so, you might find yourself in a different square than that which you intended if I can't make your movement match up to what you posted. For that reason, be as specific as you can, please.
I'd also ask players to try and keep in mind where they act in the initiative order, and be proactive in determining how the combat situation might change prior to their character's action. Giving me alternative actions based on a potentially changing situation (i.e. I attack Goblin #2, but if he's down before my action, move 3 squares east and attack Golbin #4) would be very helpful to me when I construct my combat posts.
Other than the above, all I ask from my players is to be respectful of other players and to enjoy the game!
I would like to play with this character. He is currently not playing any other games.
I have several other 1-3L that are currently playing but should be available to substitute out if needed. Please feel free to sift though my alternate characters. Options include: Amarel; Oded Fardeth; Erlandel; and Kam Yuen.
Berta Lighthammer, here to meet your frontline damage-dealing needs! Why hit it with a hammer, when you can hit it with a LONGhammer! (Patent pending.)
Alternatively, I have an alchemist and a wizard (conjurer), both level 1, if a different party role needs filling, but am very excited to give this one a go.
