you guys still have room for more?

**

Ohako, you've made a fallacious assumption that the heal day job = long term care.

It does not. It could be any of a number of things that the skill covers, and more.

As has been mentioned earlier, any benefit that affects only a specific use of the skill (in this case long term care) does NOT have any effect on day job checks.


I think I'm going to change the alias I'm using for this.

Realized I like to search on my name to find threads I've been posting in... and suddenly there's alot more posts to weed through, if I use this alias for the GM stuff too =)

Also, realize its helpful to have a profile image attached to the GM alias too.

So will be making a GM alias shortly and use that from this point forward.


Also, shopping during a scenario has to take community size into account for what might be available.

Not an issue if you're in Absalom.
Might be if you're in Turtleback Ferry.

(And no, I'm not sure where that is... just recall reading the name somewhere!)


1) Buy what you'd like now if you know what that is.
Once it starts... though you might have a better idea of what you might need, you never know how rushed you'll be...

2) Believe so... you're the only native of the desert =)


6 days to go time.

If you've not gotten me your PFS info yet, please do so (Think only Phoebee is missing).

Also, be sure to finalize any pre-scenario purchasing and the like.


I can join you guys in this, if you need a 6th.
probably at level 5, so would still be low tier.


Shrug, not too worried about it one way or the other.

Am eager to start, but the 27th is so far away. =)


1 person marked this as a favorite.

The mask continues to stare at you in impassive judgement.


just as an fyi... the recruitment thread actually lists this as The Kortos Envoy.

Has confused me a couple of times when I click on it and it ends up being King of the Storval Stairs =)


Ah true. Yes, no in character reason really to have such things prepared!


Nope. You have nothing that indicates that.

And (ooc) there won't be even after you get going.... just a routine task in town as far as you're aware.


Ya, I did some research, and its all over the map how folks do it.
Though the print it off, fill it out, and scan it method seems popular... just seems like a lot of work and tree killing (and requires a scanner!)
Many have premium pdf editors in their own right... but I'm a skinflint!
Doesn't help that the Paizo pdfs are protected such that you can't easily extract just the chronicle from the pdf.

I found a free web site pdf editor, to which I can upload the scenario pdf... then I can delete all the pages but the last one (which is the chronicle) and edit that. Then save the finished product back to my local drive. I think it will work out well, with no foliage or pocketbooks harmed in the making of!

Though my ability to do a signature with a mouse on a screen is somewhat lacking =) But close enough for government work! Hopefully I just have to get it looking good once... than can copy it from there.


Ya, am doing pdf.

I just realized, while I was figuring out how to do it (for free), that I could make many of the fields form fillable text fields.
So you guys could then fill in the values for chronicle #, accumulated xp/PP/gold et al, right in the pdf, and not need to use a pen at all (or worry about illegible handwriting)
Hmm.. though unsure on purchases... I'll have to ponder that section.

Not sure if that'd be good or not, but liked the thought while I was playing with it, so was thinking of trying it out on you guys. =)


OK, we have 6 folks tentatively checked in! (Phoebee is replacing Deko's mesmerist)

Figured I'd post some expectations and the like now. In case folks feel they can't meet them, it still leaves lots of time to find something more suitable.

As I may have mentioned, this will be my first go at GMing a PbP ... (have played many, and GM'd over the table many times... but first time in this format, so will be some adjustments as we go.) So feel free to ask questions and make comments and suggestions as we go that will help improve the experience for all!
Will use GoogleSlides for maps and such (figured out how that works over the weekend) ... and even sorted out how to do the chronicles, though not necessarily how to distribute them yet (might get emails from you guys for this later). (anyone have any thoughts on making the chronicles fillable pdf forms?)

I'm intending to run a bunch of scenarios in a row and will attempt to make the transitions between them as fluid as possible. This will occasionally mean I will need to change up some of the intro text a bit from the stand alone scenarios (including who is delivering the information), as well as some text in the middle to avoid temporal confusion (we'll be going season 0, 3, 2, 2, 6, 2 possibly), but nothing too major beyond that. It does say I can 'paraphrase' the info =) I'm taking that to heart.
The first two, at least, should fall easily withing Gameday5 (possibly more depending on how we progress) and will be reported as such. After that it will continue normally, til we're done or you guys decide to stop!

The goal of course being to make it seem like a small campaign over a couple of levels. How well it turns out, remains to be seen!

I would also like to keep them moving at a reasonably good clip (nothing like long delays to kill momentum). So expect reasonable posting rates from you guys as well.
Although once a day posting at a minimum will be expected, more is encouraged (especially during combats). Given that checking to see if there are new posts is a simple as clicking on a bookmark, I don't see it as a big time commitment to at least check to see if there is a need to post anything.

That being said, I am hoping for a lot of good RP opportunities... so encourage everyone to embrace the concept and setup. (Good to see folks posting in the gameplay thread already, getting introduced!)

Excited to do this thing! 19 days can't go by fast enough!

It hits everyone in the area.
Nothing in the spell allows for you to exclude folks.


All the pregens can be downloaded here

Personally, will go with either Kyra or Amiri depending on party needs.
As mentioned, I have the aliases set up already =)


I'll give it a go. (With either Amiri or Kyra (cause I already have aliases set up for them! =) )

84637-18


No worries! No shortage of games. =)


And who do we contact if we did not receive the expected boon?


Aye, its 1-2, 3-4, 6-7 for tiers on a 1-7.

I was looking at either a 5 or a 4.

If qwerty has a 2 ... if I bring the 4, we're 1-2, if I bring a 5, we're at 2.5 at get the choice. =P

Little too much manipulating, so I'll just let Lady Ladile hop in, in my stead. Makes things easier for all =)


That's ok, Deko. Thanks for considering!

Will go see who else wishes to fill in from those who applied


Ya, if this ends up in the low (1-2) tier (which it looks like it will), I'll give up my spot.
Always seems a waste doing the 1-7's in that tier.


Am not allowed to officially start until the 27th, but RP is permitted in the gameplay thread before that (including introductions, et al) as you are left waiting for the VC to show up in his office.


I'd be up for this... even more so if it gets into the higher tiers.

Unsure on character choice at present.

(Will this be for Gameday5?)


Am going through doing a quick audit of folks characters as they come in.
Will send each of you a pm if I spot anything obvious or have a question.

Its lower level, so not so hard to do =)
(I once had a GM point out that I'd never bothered to buy any clothing.)


None at the moment. Her level has no impact on the tier at present.


Done!


You have been called to the Grand Lodge of Absalom for a briefing. Seated in a small chamber around a darkwood table, various trophies gathered from across the face of Golarion hang from the walls. A monkey-shaped mask with a serpent’s tongue glares out from the center of one wall, a strange halberd with gold rings piercing its thick blade and dragons carved along its haft hangs opposite the monkey mask. You are alone save your fellow Pathfinders, who apparently have been called here for the same purpose.

Feel free to hang out... but its still over 3 weeks til we start... and that mask is a little creepy...
This will not advance beyond basic introductions until then!


Ooops, was editing the campaign name and broke the link to it!

New actually-working link to campaign thread.


Welcome folks!

This will not start until Gameday V gets underway, so a bit of time.

We will be in the low tier... Penelope, that means you will end up out of tier for most of this... not sure if that's an issue for you or not.

We are of course starting with Frozen Fingers of Midnight (from season 0)!

If you want, and are sure you'll be in come the 27th, fill in some basic info for me, starting with:

Your Name:
Character Name:
PFS#
Faction:

I'd appreciate it if everyone can put a basic character sheet in their profile alias for easy reference to things. If you need help with this, let me know.

Since we've lots of times, I will take a moment to check them all over, see if there are any obvious hiccups that jump out at me.


OK, back from a long weekend!

Recruitment for this is closed. Have lots of responses.

Melshanto (Deko)
Wei Tchak
Dead-Eye Jones
Masym
Penelope
Malusha

Will keep the originally posted start date for now.

Have made a campaign thread (but again, not actually starting until Gameday (the 27th))

Everyone else: will keep a record, in case anyone is unable to go once the start date arrives.


@Nella: That's fine. Wouldn't be til after the weekend anyway.


Jeeze, I posted this super early, just to have more time to find folks able to play them all...

Hour and a half in, and lots of interest already.

@Deko: any format/alias is fine for the recruiting part. No need to create the PFS alias just yet. Though I'm curious, you have 16 PFS characters registered... how have you never made a PFS char? =)

@SkipperD/Wei Tchak: I'll keep the switch out in mind!

If we get a good selection of PC's soon enough, would folks be open to possibly just starting the first one, outside of Gameday, and then doing the 2nd and beyond when gameday comes around, rather than waiting a month. =) Frozen Fingers is season 0 so can go quickly...


Of course! Open to new, old, and everything in between.

Might be my best bet for finding folks who've not already played them. =)

What Drahliana said. Audit everyone.
Then no one is singled out!


4 people marked this as a favorite.

OK, gameday 5 is on!

Would like to run a series of PFS scenarios and attempt to connect them up... at least by geography and personnel. (thus encouraging RP and griping about the weather!)
All are aimed at putting the players in icy northern climes, in or around Irrisen and the Land of the Linorm Kings (though starting in Absalom)

Of course, there's only 90 days to work with... and I've got 5 scenarios in mind (possibly 6)... so unlikely to make it through them all... but the idea will be to continue on afterwards normally if we need/want to.

So, looking for players who would like to, and can, run through the following 5 (or 6) scenarios (1-5's all)
(The first 2, at the very least for GamedayV)

0.04, The Frozen Fingers of Midnight
3.01, The Frostfur Captives
2.15, Shades of Ice - Part I: Written in Blood
2.17, Shades of Ice - Part II: Exiles of Winter
2.19, Shades of Ice - Part III: Keep of the Huscarl King
And, as a bonus, possibly
6.18, From Under Ice

I realize its a bit much to try to find a full group who've not done any of these... so will remain flexible, but will see how it goes for now.
Please note: as they're all 1-5's... if you plan to stay the course, your PC will probably need to be level 3 or less to start off, so as not to outlevel things.

Would also like folks with reasonably quick post-checking rates... in hopes of as much progress as possible in the time alloted.

I've played in many pbp... so now its time to give back!

Starting August 27th with Frozen Fingers.


It only shows up if you post in the Gameplay thread.
Posting here, in the discussion thread, or in Recruitment thread, will not do it.

Might that be it?


Last minute addition! =)

Hmm.. now to decide which lvl 8 arcane caster to play!


Its a Core game, Belvica.

Graci!

Quick question:

The chronicle for Year of the Shadow Lodge Special (and this will be true for some other years as well, now that I think of it) has a boon listed separately at each tier group. The boon has the same name and the same benefits (just can be used more times in the higher tiers)

But typically when you play in a higher tier, you get all things in the lower tiers as well.

So if you played this special in Tier 8-9 say... can you select one of that boon, you can use twice, and also select one of the lower tier boon (of the same name) which you can just use once?

I notice that the Blood Under Absalom special had the same sort of chronicle setup, but my GM for that one crossed out all the lower tier boons. Was that a mistake?

The other specials I've done do not have this format, listing just a single boon.


Hey guys, one of those new recruits...

Have two level 6 melee types, one a ranger with a large-sized avian pet (so two melees for the price of one, kinda), and the other a reach weapon barbarian.

GM V mentioned the barb, but figured I'd check in here first.
Both are melee, with a few skills, so figured I'd let you guys sort out what you need, if any.


I could join... with either a ranger or barbarian (both level 6)


Butter sock!


Also, the unchained summoner, which came out well after bestiary 2, still has the same language on the Grab evolution as the original summoner.

So from whichever angle you approach it, for eidolons, it has to be smaller than them.

ps - Augment Summoning really has no effect on the eidolon (except in rare cases when you use the 'Summon Eidolon' 2nd level spell)


What alignment are the party? (more imporantly the guy with the sword)

You can do a lot with the Possession.

Have the PC's learn of some sort of evil in 'local town they are in' killing people in some horrible fashion.

Fear and panic start to set in amongst the populace.

The PC's investigate... (adventure of some sort)... eventually leading to them realizing that the one doing all the killing is the PC with the sword, who is getting possessed by the demon at night while he sleeps, and returned before morn non-the wiser... perhaps with an occasional clue.

If they're on the move, have some other group investigating a string of deaths, and catch up to them accusing the PC of said atrocities.
etc..

Eventually, they'll figure it out, the demon possesses the player one last time, and they have nice fight, with the PC as the BBEG =)

At least til they take him down (hopefully non-lethally), then they wonder what to do with the sword.

Hell, you don't even need to do it all, just hint at it.
Perhaps the PC wakes up some mornings, covered in blood... with no explanation why.

Of course, none of this gets the sword back where it wants to be... but some demons just like to screw with the good guys 'because' =)


+1 to what Chess Pwn and Davor Firetusk suggested.


The called Erinyes devils you mentioned can cast Minor Image and Fear at will.

Toss up a few illusory walls somewhere that they sit behind and spam fear on the gunslinger, et al, until he fails the save.

At which point he drops whatever he's holding (read guns) and starts to run. (if he's using gloves of storing for the guns, then he's not using weapon cords!)

Have something pick them up (unseen servant perhaps? Something/Someone with telekinesis? Hell... they're clerics... have him cast Animate Object on the dropped firearms, and have them start firing back at the party! That will be fun image =)

Hell, drop a Eagle's Splendor (mass or single) on the devils, to increase the DC of the save to a 21, if it helps.


Feh, the Archives of Nethys has been the culprit for more illegal character options at tables than I care to count.

The main issue being that it does not differentiate between legal for all, and conditionally legal.

'Sure its legal... but only if you're a goblin!'
