[SFS] Sanctioned AP: Incident at Absalom Station (1-2)


Recruitment


I will be GMing a SFS game of the first AP (Dead Suns) 1: Incident at Absalom Station. To accommodate American Thanksgiving, I’m looking to start this on Monday, November 27th. I expect I’ll close recruitment Saturday November 25th, unless there are already an overwhelming number of responses, in which I’ll give an update with at least 24 hours to submit a character.

Logistics: This is a 1-2 (repeatable) adventure worth 3 XP and has some Starfighter combat. As this is a sanctioned SFS game (and not Campaign Mode), you will be required to have a legal SFS character to participate. Pregens are possible, but unique characters are preferable.

I am only committing to GMing the first chapter at this time, though there is a long term potential for more. My goal, though, is to help get people to level three characters easier, so I may repeat this for other players :)

There is one reserved spot for GM Kuey as part of the GM Trade System, so I’ll be looking for up to 5 players. Selection will be based on making sure there is a balanced party, with a slight preference for more experienced PbP players (this AP chapter is longer than a typical scenario.)

The expectation will be that players post at least one post per weekday and one post over the weekend, unless they notify ahead. There are holidays coming up, so allowances for RL will always be made, just please let us know :) For other details such as how to format signatures and make rolls, check out my profile.

If interested, please post in with a character you would like to play with the following:
Character Class

Space Combat Role

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Good day. Here's my entry for this AP. I'll fill out my sheet in a bit. Thinking of a good fighting style. Cheers!

Character Class: Soldier
Character Level: 1
Space Combat Role: Gunner

Hi Wolfspirit. I have a Technomancer concept that I'd like to try out:

Character Class: Technomancer
Character Level: 1
Space Combat Role: Science/Engineering

Wayfinders

So I'd love to play this, but here's my concern...

As this is a level 1-2 module, will a bunch of 1's get owned in the second half of the module?

Character Class: Soldier
Character Level: 1
Space Combat Role: Gunner or Pilot (+7 Piloting)

A few of the reviews I've read indicate that the end may be challenging for a full group of level 1s, so I'll be keeping an eye on that for party composition.

Thanks!

I mean, there can't be too many level 2's in the campaign yet, and certainly not that many that haven't played this particular scenario.

This problem is a pitfall of the "Society Legal character" version of running any AP books for PFS or SFS.

The Exchange

I'd like to join if able. Two character options

Class: Operative (skill focused not combat)
Character level 1
Space combat role: any, specializing in Science or engineering

Option 2

Class: Technomancer
Character level 2
Space combat role, science or engineering

I've only been doing PbP here for a few months, but I try to keep a good frequency and my history I hope shows that.

Three things I note:

1) You can almost make a full android crew out of that
2) Pangea - “Bad Gunner” looks bad on a resume as your only skill
3) My iPad now knows and autofills the word “Technomancer”

Sadly, Bad Gunner is fairly accurate for a Mystic's role in Space Combat. However, as a "Sixth Member" it isn't that big of a detriment, whereas given the overall difficulty of some of the non-space combats makes them a valued member.

Lack of support for Wisdom-based (and to an extent, Strength-based) is one thing I hope is resolved as Starfinder is out longer.

GM kuey reporting. If L2 characters is of concern, I currently have a L2 solarian and, by 27 Nov, a L2 mystic. Both can be captains or "bad gunners" for space combat. :) I don't see any melee submissions yet (but can't be sure), so the solarian might be more useful, but I guess it all depends on final party make up. I'm fine with playing either character.

Apologies, I forgot to mention in my original post that I do have an Envoy available as a second option if desired:

Actually, with some GM credit applied, RZMR is now level 2. Pays off to be a GM :-)

I need to apply my Commencement chronicle. I might add/change some gear.

Colthan likes to learn. So he is pretty good at Computers and Engineering +10 but he is also trained in Life Sciences, Medicine, and Mysticism.
And he is a decent pilot mostly due to his good reflexes.

I'll add my name to the list.

Character Class: Human Envoy
Character level: 1.2

OR

Character Class: Vesk Soldier
Character level: 1.2

Both characters have Quests and Commencement chronicles.

Submitting Pogo, 1st level Ysoki Ace Pilot mechanic, and Howland, his AI hover drone.

I will be adding a background spoiler to his profile later tonight. I have not run him yet in any games.

His theme is ace pilot, so he'd make a great starship pilot, but his skills would also allow him to serve as engineer or science officer.

I have been playing PBP games since 2013 and am GMing 2 Pathfinder Adventure Paths.

Ding ding ding! 12 entrants! The obvious solution is to run two tables?

Dataphiles

9 actually. You listed alts. Though I'm sure if GM Wolfspirit wanted to run 2 tables he would get enough players.
Speaking of alts I'm flexible on class.

I listed alts separately. There are 12 distinct entrants.

Dataphiles

My mistake. We will see what Wolfspirit wants to do.


Hey there. I've been following along, but trying to get other things rolling, and we've still got a couple days left on the original recruitment posting. For the moment, I'm only looking for one table. However, my goal is to get things set up so that they can be re-run with low effort. I'm not going to promise anything, but if things get up smoothly, I may run a followup table once the group has progressed to a second part.

I do appreciate the listing of applicants. It'll help when I review them.


Looking at the applicants so far, we have two full groups, even trying to go with Balanced Parties. To that end, I think I'll close the recruitment a day early, at the end of this Friday. I'll try to have the initial roster posted Saturday, to get rolling the Monday after that.


I created a LINK to the current applicants so far. Let me know if anyone is missing

1 person marked this as a favorite.

A few hours left! I'm holding off on making a final selection for the first round, but I'll make the cutoff in about 3.5 hours. Once I've made the selection and everyone accepts, I'll open the roster to a potential second run.

Acquisitives

Ok


Well, you guys certainly didn't make this an easy pick, but I sent out an initial round of invites. So far I have 5 of 6 confirmed, and expect the final confirmation this evening. On the other hand, I'll hopefully be setting up a second round of of this AP soon. If you haven't received an invite and would be interested in the second round, please add that to This List. I won't guarantee anything until I've got a good handle on my bandwidth but I'm hopeful. Or, if anyone else wants to step up and take over a table, go for it! There's at least a full table.

Thanks everyone for applying.
