I should add that the benefits far outweigh the cons. It's a LOT of fun.

Grand Lodge

Male Unknown All

Soooo.... I'm currently in one of those right now (Endless Forms, Zinou, et al.) We have dedicated characters, rotate GM, and the GM applies credit to that character.

I WOULD be interested in this, but the issue is that since I'm already doing this, I'm burning through CORE scnearios at a very quick pace. (Even moreso as I'm currently doing this with the newbies to this party.)

YES to #1. As for point #2, anyone who got carpeted can take an AoO as the creatures are tiny.

Not sure what happened to Merisiel... Sorry, AFK tonight, but feel free to add.

Fingers crossed that we hear from RDN before dice are rolled.

Although the city of Nantambu is hot, the interior of Sharrowsmith’s
Exports is cool and dim. Aya Allahe gestures to a sideboard of iced
drinks and jungle fruits as she settles in behind her tidy desk.
“Please, refresh yourselves, for I’m about to ask you to journey far from the comforts of civilization.” The only other person in the room is a half-elf named Fola Barun, who has curly hair and dark skin painted with delicate designs. Fola stands behind a massive oak table, meticulously adding details to a half-finished map.

Allahe’s brow wrinkles over her golden eyes, hinting at her worry. “North of Bloodcove is the mountainous Terwa Uplands and a scarp called Azlant Ridge. For more than six years, Pathfinder archeologists at Azlant Ridge have been excavating an Azlanti outpost of vital historical significance; it’s perhaps the only Azlanti outpost on the Mwangi coast.” Allahe pauses. “Fola, you mentioned to me before that you wanted to learn how Pathfinder agents begin a mission. Why don’t you hold off on that map for a few minutes and listen?” The half-elf carefully sets her cartography aside and strides over behind the desk. Allahe nods approvingly and continues, “My good friend, Juliet Dias, leads the expedition at Azlant Ridge. During their first year, the expedition was beset by a horde of ape-men, but was saved by the timely intervention of a group of Pathfinder agents. The site has been mostly quiet ever since—Juliet provides monthly reports. Archeology is a slow and careful science, as Juliet is keen to remind me. Not all Pathfinders are reckless thrill-seekers.” Allahe flashes a conspiratorial smile.

Fola Barun speaks up. “Juliet Dias’s monthly correspondence is a week overdue. Her last missive described a strange light emanating from somewhere deeper in the Terwa Uplands, and her intense curiosity about it.” She slides a folded letter across the desk.

Aya adds, “I fear for my friend. Go to Azlant Ridge and seek out Juliet Dias. If she has met danger, please assist her. If my fears prove true, and Juliet is injured or worse, please ensure that the Pathfinder archeologists under her supervision are safe and continuing their valuable work, and then bring Juliet back to me. I have a riverboat to Bloodcove ready to depart, and I’ll provide you directions from Bloodcove to Azlant Ridge. Although I ask that you hurry, it is important that you ask whatever questions you may have before departing.”

So we went from too few to too many (obviously first dibs goes to whomeever GM wants, but I'd imagine it'd be THIS party.)

Chris: Bishop the ranger
QWERTY: Warpirest
Aarvid: Hugo
EF: Atum
Thunderspirit: Oracle
Jeff Chapman: Rogue
Matt Wilson: Wizard

Grand Lodge

Male Unknown All

Checking with them now. Are you talking about running Parts 4-5-6?

Part 4 I don't have a PC for.

Also, I totally get the figuring it out beforehand.

Grand Lodge

Male Unknown All

Piper and Amiri (GM Thunderspirit) are all who remain. I'll close the old thread once we hear from Piper.

Grand Lodge

Male Unknown All

Awesome! I don't know that they'll accept the invite, but we shall see!

Should we say that we'll start when EF gets back in January? It'll certainly give some time for Beckett to prep and for everyone to relax for the holidays.

GM, how do you feel about getting a thread open so those who are around can start getting to know each other and character picks?

Grand Lodge

Male Unknown All

So the party is:

GM:
Beckett

Players:
Hugo: Cleric/Ranger 15
Bishop: Ranger 15 2/3
Atum: Fighter Living Monolith 14

With GM permission I've got 3 friends whom I can vouch for. They all have level 13 2/3s ready to go. It doesn't help us with Sanctum of the Serpent God, but it does for right now.

Yeah, EF has the right of it, Wardens of the Reborn Forge is fun, but it's a huge commitment. I think I'll keep my next run of that to the physical table. Don't ge me wrong, it was fun to step in on that game!

Grand Lodge

Male Unknown All

The ones I said are not available are because I'm currently playing them in campaign mode and don't want to be spoiled for it.

Since my list was the base, there's no need to strike out.

Grand Lodge

Male Unknown All

THAT is a suggestion I can get behind! If you'd be willing that lets me recharge my batteries. Once Blood Under Absalom is done I'd be happy to jump back behind the screen.

I have a level 17 sorcerer and level 15 ranger free.

If it's still Stealth for Thorn and it doesn't increase it for everyone, that's DEFINITELY the thief's rogue's modus operendi.

Apologies for the cross post.

I've run through a few books of Curse of the Crimson Throne and reported them, but they don't count as table credit. Is this a known issue? I know you guys are super busy and don't want to overload you, but I thought I'd point it out.

Hey Lari--my apologies but I forgot my monk's level is 4, not 5 (already posted this in the thread). I could only play this at the lower tier.

Dang, I wanted to run with Bodta...

This is SO VERY tempting, and I think I've got the band width for it.

I would totally bring Thorn if he were free :-) I'd bring a level 5 Paladin (Standard campaign), and prefer him for high tier.

Before becoming a teacher, I worked with professional engineers who didn't have ranks in Knowledge (Engineering) :-) Wasn't their fault, tough times meant doing a different kind of engineering.

Boons win on a 16 or a 20 (not sure why 16, but it is)

Ignatious wins! This time we're not told the boon specifics, so you have to choose based on the hints below:

Player Boon #1: Sajan looks awesome in Horror Adventures
Player Boon #2: Fighting looks different depending on where you’re from.
Player Boon #3: You know what’s a good archetype? The Grenadier alchemist.
Player Boon #4: I hear you’re going to the elemental planes soon…
Player Boon #5: Over-specializing is always a good thing when it doesn’t cost anything…
Player Boon #6: FEAR ME! (over and over and over and over…)

Here's the ctrl+P for all my games:
1. I've been running games since the late 1980s, I've seen a lot of editions. I started playing PFS with Slot 1 Season 0 at Gen Con. I'm solid with the PFRPG rules, but everyone makes mistakes. I'll try to be as fair as possible.
2. I'm a Venture-Lieutenant for Southern NH. If you're ever in the area, or you need help finding games/conventions there. PM me.
3. I post with a high rate of frequency. That being said, if you guys can post 2-3 times per day, awesome. If it's only 1/day I understand. No worries. Real Life Comes First (tm).
4. Let's get started:
Player Name:
PC Name:
PFS#:
Faction:
Day Job: Feel free to roll now.
Notes: Anything I should know; passive abilities, boons that are way out there, etc.

I'm offline until Monday the 8th due to Gen Con starting now. Sorry I couldn't make a super awesome post first. I apologize for my spottiness over the last few weeks. When I return it'll be with a vengeance! (If I'm the GM, I apologize in advance for my "vengeance".)

CORE is alive and well. For PbP games here CORE fills quickly and frequently.

I fall into the "played everything" category, and I LOVE the challenge of core PCs in games.

I didn't understand that the culture of the lodge meant that only PCs interacted in Gameplay.

Hmm

Don't feel bad about learning to navigate the lodge AT ALL. There's no instruction manual, so it's learning by process. Maybe we should write a manual :-) I post in Gameplay as my GM persona all the time to advertise games.

I shot you a PM with some extra stuff just to help. :-) Most importantly, welcome aboard!

I hope paizo is paying attention - this type of comment is being posted often now in this thread by those that are typically AP subscribers.

That's not a business reason not to do it though. It is a separate subscription, so it won't increase your current expenditure. I feel the pain though. I'll have to balance my hobby budget and decide what I can afford.

Have you considered playing by post? It's an amazingly robust way to get your gaming in. I play plenty of AP and PFS online. I even play with my high school group from the mid 1990s. There are plenty of places to find great games on paizo.com

Also not really an option. Not only does the thought of play by post make my old grognard blood curdle, but (and more importantly) I don't know enough people who play by post whom I also actually like enough to want to game with.

Depending on WHY it makes your blood curdle, I'd offer up that it's perfectly suited for a grognard:

1. If it's because you have bad memories of the play by post of the 70s and 80s, fear not. It isn't nearly the same level of waiting and frustration.

2. If it's because it's too techy, I'd posit that it's an EXCELLENT way to play an older style of game due to the pace with which you can form in character posts etc.

As mentioned above, you can look around for a group that suits your style. The forum is full of every style of play you could ask for.

Sorry for derailing the thread. Back to your regularly scheduled program.

1. LOVE the idea of an Encounter Codex. Seeing as I am an overly busy GM who owns all the maps.

2. If Starfinder does take off, it'd warrant new hires, so hopefully it's not too much of aresource drain.

3. I'm okay too with 2-3 hardcovers max. I love getting new books, but it'd be nice to give my crying bookshelves a break.

I haven't looked at this thread in a LONG time. Thanks for all the updates. I need to clean it, edit it, add to it, and make it more in line with Pathfinder.

You guys added some awesome stuff.

I also noticed a lot of it CLEARLY came from my 8th grader mentality. I'll fix that too.
