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.

This (my GM persona) was the character that I wanted to introduce to the lodge. I am again sorry for the etiquette breach. My intent was to be friendly and say hi to everyone in a fun and whimsical manner.

:(

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.

Sounds good. We'll play "true" play by post until then.

Man, I remember being a kid and seeing adds for playing via play by POST meaning mail in the back of Dragon magazine. I can't even imagine how painful that must have been.

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.

Actually...

Bodta's kick is too much, the leg breaks and the femur punches through the skin. The minotaur drops and begins to bleed out!

Out of combat.

Two allies and a foe lie bleeding on the grass...

There are dozens of caravans carrying dozens of elixirs. There are 6 REAL elixirs being carried by the 6 named groups.

I'll answer the other questions in the Gameplay tab.

Is it 2 vials of elixir or 6?

Since Roakar has nothing to do but sit and wait, he asks a few questions to probe how well the situation was planned out.

"So how many people do you have in the field right now and are they as in the dark about the possibilities they face as we are?"

"Does this map update in real time? What else can it show? How do you know which caravans are being attacked"

"What's the plan if they attack a false caravan in overwhelming force."

"We have six teams out there now. The Faithful Procession of Abadar, Inquisition of Inevitables (a half dozen Kolyaruts), Pashow’s Parade Caravan itself, Lord Lightfoot Master of the Four Winds and supreme Disciple of Irori, Korvosa's Sable Company, and finally a team of Pathfinders."

"The map updates in real time. If any of those lights shine red, we will instantly teleport you there. And I'm sorry to say that if they attack a decoy, we let it die. We cannot afford to fall for a feint."

Focusing on a mithral punch to the side of the knee, Paeter scores a solid hit that catches the devil by surprise!

Free of weapons himself, he turns now towards Paeter:
Left Claw: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (9) + 10 = 19
Right Claw: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (7) + 10 = 17

But the halfling's armor and reflexes prove the better!

Round 4:
Paeter: Go
Syrak: Go
Pandoor: Go
Falco: Go

Baddies: TBD

DM:

Bearded Devil: 51

I stand corrected! She does drop from Oggil's onslaught after Thiera and Hun's attacks.

Grand Lodge

Male Unknown All

Hun that was definitely time to roll a 20!

and

Oggil, at a table of strangers I'd say no, but I'll allow it. It must be the sazerac I've got while updating games.

Miss: 1d5 ⇒ 3
Miss: 1d5 ⇒ 2
FORT: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (14) + 5 = 19 She keeps it together, her will will not be defeated, even if her body fails.

Round 2:
Thiera: Delay
Hun: Stabbity
Oggil: Miss
Baddies: ATK
Dupine: Go
Piper: Will blinding ray

DM:

Leader: 21 (12 NL) Blurred, Blind

Bleeding wounds sloweth not the righteous! The devil takes another powerful hit.

Spell Penetration: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (19) + 1 = 20 Falco's missile punches right through the devil's resistance! The real surprise is the celestial frog starts chomping on him, holding him fast!

1d5 ⇒ 2
1d5 ⇒ 5

Hun doesn't hit the heart itself, but it's awfully close! Blood that falls from her wounds becomes crystal clear...

She speaks in Tien:
Like a Fossil Tree
That hath born not one blossom
Sad has been my life

She then unleashes whatever she has left. She hacks at Hun, while speaking words of magic to turn the sparks on her blade to full on lightning: ATK: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (7) + 12 = 19 and hits him for DMG: 1d6 + 7 ⇒ (1) + 7 = 8 and Elec: 1d6 ⇒ 2 AND Elec: 5d6 ⇒ (6, 2, 2, 5, 2) = 17

Her face is hard to read, but she doesn't look like the surrendering type as she let the magic save her...

Hey Everyone,
For the multi-table, I strongly suggest checking in with Jesse Davis (online VC.) The multitable special was an experiment, and while it went swimmingly, I'm not 100% it's allowed at the moment.

I could also be COMPLETELY wrong, but I just wanted to throw that out there first before the ball got rolling too far.

The battle tips ever more towards the Pathfinders as Piper quickens everyone's reactions.

Round 1:
Thiera: Magic
Hun: Fire!
Oggil:ATK
Baddies: ATK
Dupine: Go
Piper: Haste

DM:

Leader: 0
Black: 10

Sandor's onslaught is vicious by any standards, and fits right at home in this hellish castle. When he is done, only the steaming corpse of the hound remains.

I've moved Odric and Morkeleb in with a double move. The hound by him is dead, and this is the most efficient way to get him back in the fight. There's no AoO because of the corner. There's no line of sight until the very end for Morkeleb.

Grym and Bucho join him in hunting the monster down.

Round 3:
Ferox: Go
Gaius: Go

Baddies: TBD
Odric: TBD
Morkeleb: TBD
Grym: TBD
Sandor: TBD

DM:

Black: Slow (Rounds remaining: 5)

It depends on if you're a GM looking to recruit or a player looking to sign up.

GM looking to recruit: The lodge typically uses the gameplay thread to recruit, but the recruitment ought to be done in character there. For example I use my retired seekers to "recruit" with a link to a sign up sheet. Most of the GMs in the lodge use a google spreadsheet for sign ups. The typical technique is either FCFS or lottery after a sign up window.

Player looking to join: Dot the gameplay thread (in character is best.) Keep an eye out for GMs looking to recruit tables. If you sift through some of the thread you'll quickly get a feel for the technique.

Good luck and welcome!

Hey guys!

So EF gave me an invite to this campaign. I have to say, I'm super excited. Here's my schtick:

1. I'm happy to stick with the Halfling. Honestly, the last time I played a halfling it was 1e, and it's time I changed that.

2. I've played with everyone in this campaign before. I can definitely commit to playing fast. My teaching schedule this year (and next) allows me to post an unreasonable amount each day. Unless my fiancee and I are away, or I'm at a convention, I'll be here to post.

3. I just retired my cleric of Sarenrae, so I've already been kicking around the thought of a new cleric. Based on what we have, a cleric of Desna seems like a good fit.

4. My level. I'd be lagging behind, but I've got some core games in play right now. I can apply the credit to this character, so I estimate by the time we all hit 4th level, I'll be caught up.

5. Scenario options. I don't know what you guys have in the pipe, but I've played a bunch of core over the last few months. I don't know if my presence messes that up. The first 3 GM XP I'll be applying to this character is the Quest for Perfection trilogy.

6. GMing. I'm happy to GM. I JUST qualified for 5 stars, so that means I'm cutting back. This is a good thing as I can pay more attention to what I'm running.

7. I'll have a character ready ASAP.

8. Thanks again EF and everyone else for letting me in. See you in a bit.
