GM PDK's PFS RPG 'Honor's Echo' for PbP Gameday VI


Play-by-Post Discussion


Start: October 2
Current Players: 4
Additional Players Needed: 2

Please note that this is for level 1 PFS RPG PCs only (aka this is for Classic PFS, and NOT for Core PFS).

The pregen requirement has been lifted as of GenCon: do NOT bring a pregen. You must bring an actual 1st level PC. All stats must be listed clearly under the character's online alias.

Please note that we will run all 6 quests in a row, therefore once you commit your character, you cannot take him out of the quests and come back to complete them later.

For a complete listing of Gameday VI games, please click here:

POSTING REQUIREMENTS: minimum twice daily*. Please do not apply if you do not intend to post often.

*NOTE: reduced posting will occur from Oct 7-14 due to personal circumstances. Outside these dates please post twice daily; on occasions, if unable to post please provide botting guidelines but please don't expect the GM or party to carry you through extended parts of this scenario without making a post. There are 6 short quests in this scenario, some of which may only last a day or two (real time) and require 2 or 3 posts: therefore, if your character does not contribute to the quest, the GM reserves the right to not check the quest as 'completed' on your chronicle.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!

Greetings friends. I may not be the best at finding traps but I can surely disable them. Should you like to creep in the shadows and have Stealth Synergy as I do we could, perhaps, help one another.

Not much story for this guy yet. He will likely rebuild at L2 but I thought this would be useful for the quests.

Sir Durant is a retired knight from Nirmathas. He spent his military career guarding caravans, which brought him a surprising amount of combat experience, especially given Nirmathas's continual conflicts with Molthune. He's a devout follower of Iomedae, and even has the religious training of a paladin, but the goddess never blessed him with the paladin's knack for more developed forms of magic. He found that retirement didn't suit him entirely, but that the goddess has more work for him to do. So he joined the Pathfinder Society as a way to share his experience with younger, more ambitious warriors.

Side note: I purchased a Wand of Cure Light Wounds prior to this adventure. Mohag, could you carry it and use it for me? Anyone else who doesn't have a wand of their own can feel free to take a hit off of it as needed.

I'm unable to move my token at the moment. Could someone please move me so that I am adjacent to Trajet?

Thanks!

Not just you, map is set to view only.


Oops... will fix soon.


I will post again Sunday night: feel free to RP away for the next 24hrs. Thx!


Sorry gents: on a fishing trip right now. I should be able to post again Sat.

I’m back from my trip and ready to get going again whenever you’re ready, GM!


I will resume posting steadily today or tomorrow; have returned with no fish, but perhaps an extra Profession rank somewhere... :P


I will try to give this a push in the next few days. Technically, Gameday VI wraps up a week from now. There may be some frequent botting: do not take this personally, as it will be meant to keep things moving for a Tue Nov 7 wrap up.

I plan to do quest 4 Wed and Thu, and I'm hoping to put a serious dent in quest 5 on Fri. I'll be away Sat and beginning of Sun, so I plan to do quest 6 on Sun and Mon (emphasis on Monday).

If this works as planned I will try to have chronicles ready for the night of Tue Nov 7.

We did get an extension, HMM just wants us to report on or before the 17th. But I understand if you want to finish quick.

I'll definitely have some time for posts in the mornings and evenings the rest of this week. During the work day can be tight, but I'll try to keep on top of it.


Glad to hear about the extension Barid. I'll try to stay on schedule but not at a sacrifice to the scenario.


Dear Honor's Echo players,

Nov 17 is tomorrow so I will have to report the game tomorrow. We have until Nov 20 to finish though, so I would appreciate if some of you can try to push for a few more posts per day so we can wrap this up on time.

The last part involves roleplay, as your worldwide investigation draws to an end, but it is in my opinion one of the most interesting and meaningful interaction I've seen in all my years playing Pathfinder, be it through APs, modules or PFS scenarios... so stay alert and enjoy that last part of the story!

Please roll a d20 to determine if you've earned yourself a boon! 19 or 20 means you get to roll 1d4! :)

Boon Roll:

GM PDK: 1d20 ⇒ 5

About a 35% chance of getting nothing on 10 rolls at 10% each :(

It looks like Sir Durant with his +10 Diplomacy is the best choice for Face for us. Lets see who has the 2nd best Diplomacy to see who will 'Aid' him.

Unfortunately, Vello only has a Diplomacy of +0.

Looks like the only ones that have + in Diplomacy are Barid at +7 and Mohag at +1.

Barid is obviously the best choice. As long as he doesn't roll a 1 or 2, he succeeds.


Others can aid. You lose nothing for trying. I can just do a major GM roll using Sir Durant as main and rolling for everyone if you guys want to speed this up?

However I'll still need some RP intro by some of you for each NPC. We'll start with Gloriana as per Otto's post. All agreed?

Vindex has a diplomacy of -2. I feel like he would be very uncomfortable with this whole process, and would probably avoid actively helping with the diplomatic parts, unless pushed into it by his companions.

He may respond to NPC specific prompts, depending on what they are, but he's mostly going to be drinking quietly and lurking near the group, hoping he doesn't draw attention to himself.

Yup!

Mohag is happy to try to help. If there is call for some other check (like a Bluff or Intimidate) he can use Inspired and Inexplicable Luck to roll twice, take the better, and add +8.


Well done Pathfinders! this completes "Honor's Echo". You have done very well and I shall issue the chronicles no later than Wednesday evening. I had a great time! Thank you for your patience and for a splendid adventure! Take care! - GM PDK

Enjoyed the chronicle with everyone and your game GM PDK. It got a little iffy at the end, but that was due to most of us not being built for high social interaction. Good thing Sir Durant was with us. Hate to think if we didn't have a high Diplomacy character in the group.

Thanks for running, PDK! Had a great time. I'm glad Sir Durant's high diplomacy build ended up being helpful, especially there at the end, though I do feel a bit bad for hogging the spotlight quite a bit there.

Thanks for a fun game to all the other players as well! I hope to play with you all again sometime soon!


Sorry for running a bit late gents - had a crazy week...

The chronicles have been PM'ed to each of you.

Enjoy!


TYVM Everything looks good.
