As for the Starfinder Special. We have had an influx of players and enough on the waitlist for a 3rd Tier 5-6 table. So I added another table. GM Redelia has graciously stepped up to the plate so GM Revvy Bitterleaf will be taking over her Tier 1-2 table.

There will be no need for players to sway any tables at this time but wanted to give everyone a heads up while remaining transparent in this very fluid process.

Hey, everyone, there have been some reports of people not getting notifications of posts in gameplay threads. This happened to me; there were several games I did a dot and delete a few weeks ago, and they started yesterday, and I didn't get any notification. So if you have a game that you expected would have started yesterday and did not, check on it.

I am pretty sure there was SFS character sheet template with all the BB coding somewhere but I can not seem to find it. Was I mistaken and that only existing for PFS? I have a template for my characters but it is not very user friendly for other people and I have a new player who needs a template. Anyone able to push me in the right direction?

There is one in the PbP GM kit. In that folder it's the document called 12 - SFS Character Template.

Thank you! That is exactly what I was looking for!

Hello everyone!

We have had these terrible outages the last couple of weeks and it might be that your GM has not returned yet. If this is the case please allow for a bit more time than usual.

If your GM has not posted something this Friday please contact let us know so we can find a replacement GM for you.

If you might be in one of the specials with a missing GM: please let us know ASAP, the specials are on a strict schedule.

@Magabeus - If you end up with a missing GM (unlikely), let me know. I can pick up another table if necessary.

I have coded up a bbcode SFS template for PCGen based on the paizo standard block, if that helps.

A single player can only get credit for a scenario twice? Once as a GM and once as a Player.

If I GM a game, I have to give credit to a character? How is this done when you run the same scenario multiple times?
.

Sovereign Court

When you run an scenario a second time, your characters don't get credit, unless you use a nova replay. And you get your first nova after your 10th scenario GM'd.

Grand Lodge

So I'm not required to put in a character number when I report a scenario? I can just put in my base society number?

Sovereign Court

@Dax Thura: Correct.


Honor's Echo: Blade

The only exception is 'repeatable', which can be GM'd or played any number of times, but only credited to a given character once.

So I have a question regarding the Alien Archive boon issued late last year. I played in the requisite 6 adventures (for tier 2 personal boon) between August 17th(2017) and June 14th (2018). All the adventures/scenarios I played in, I completed. It also happens that, I played all the scenarios via PbP on the Paizo boards (many of them as part of 'Game day events'); therefore it should be easy to document I actually played said adventures during the allotted time. Before this last summer began, I reached out to the various GMs and asked all of them to sign off on my Alien Archive boon so, I could build a character from one of the new races offered by the boon.

One GM got back to me and signed. (thank you GM Christopher P Marsh!) The others I got no response from or, some just told me to sign off on it myself. I wanted to follow through with this but (Ie. ask a venture officer it was O.k. to sign off myself because the games were so well documented), this summer was extremely busy for me and I never pursued it any further. Now that the summer is over, and I find myself with some more time; I wanted to find out if I could still use the 'Alien Archive' boon. I could easily list all the games I was involved in (even provide links to all their game pages). I can also provide pdf copies of all the chronicles (of the appropriate games) to a venture officer. What I'm requesting is: Could one of the online VOs sign off on my Alien Archive boon sheet retroactively? I'll provide them with any proof they need and send them a copy of my Alien Archive boon (which unfortunately only has one two actual GM signatures)
If this is possible please let me know thanks!

*edit* Quick shout out to GM 'Big Boom' who also signed my Alien Archive Boon..(just opened the file and noticed he signed as well)

Questions concerning Alien Archive Boon.

There are a couple of chronicles that have started to appear that have this similar fashion that have boxes for a GM to initial or sign off on.

Alien Archive
Skitter Shot

Since the wording on the boon says that your GM may check it off, please treat this like Faction Card check marks, i.e. ask your GM in discussion for permission and how many boxes, and then check the appropriate box(es) or fill out the information on the lines yourself.

I would suggest that you also keep a list for yourself of the scenario name, date, GM, and number of boxes / lines. Your 'played' session list in your Organized Play page is a great record, especially since they have all been played online.

For example what I did with my Alien Archive is wrote the Name of the scenario and date that it was complete. In the GM Portion I wrote down the entire GM name.


male Snows of Summer

Thx GM Tyranius,

I've already put down the scenarios name and date the scenarios were played on the Alien Archive boon. I've also listed each GM's SFS#(PFS#) in the section where the GM is suppose to initial. However, there is also the section on the boon itself Marked, GM Only. That needs to be filled out by another GM besides myself (I assume).Whom should I ask to fill out this section? I assume the only pertinent portions of this section of the boon sheet are the Gamemaster's signature and SFS#...as the other sections don't apply to the boon itself.

Sure I’m away most of the weekend but, I’ll PM you Sunday evening or Monday morning with a link to a google docs folder with a copy of the boon in it. If you sign off on it... i’m Pretty sure it will be a legal boon. Thanks in advance for helping me with this!

***Official Announcement concerning Gameday VII***

Due to the site outages early during Gameday, we are moving the end of Gameday to November 19. We encourage GMs of games that are supposed to start on October 1 to find a start date between October 1 and October 15 that works for them and their players.

Hi everyone,
I wanted to make sure you're aware that the notifications for new private messages aren't working anymore. I would strongly recommend that everyone check their messages once a day or so, and also request people to be patient if someone doesn't respond to your message.

I received my copy in the mail this week; that's why I was wondering.


Maps ... Starship combat ... Party Loot Tracker

I have a quick question. One of my players wants clarification of the rules of using credits found during an adventure to buy stuff. Their question is

Player wrote:
we use credits found in session without having it reduced on our chronicles? I feel like the answer's yes, but the items purchased are only available during this session? If so Ferradei wants to use some of those credits to buy a healing serum. She'll hang onto it but it's for the group in general.

I have skimmed the guide book and then searched for the word "credit" and nothing that I can find talks about the credits you find on an enemy. Can someone help me out by either pointing me to a page number or an answer somewhere? Thank you in advance.


Venture Lieutenant Play by Post PBP GM kit

Those credits represent the reward as it appears on your chronicle. Of course you can use them when you get them, but the items purchased are just that: items purchased with your character's funds. That means you have to account for that purchase on your chronicle.


Maps ... Starship combat ... Party Loot Tracker

Thank you for your fast response!

GM Tyranius PFS Reporting Tool | Scenario List | Scenario Sign-up Sheet

Yup, They are not free credits to use during the adventure. It is all your payment in the end. Now any consumables found and used during the scenario are a different story.


Can anyone tell me what the common practice is when someone stops posting to a PBP SFS table (6 players at table)? Do you DMPC them, or just let them fade away and move on without them?

I would bot them for a little while but if it is in the order of weeks, yes I would simply let their character disappear. No chronicle sheet for them.

Dark Archive

GM Tyranius PFS Reporting Tool | Scenario List | Scenario Sign-up Sheet

I would send them a PM and make sure everything is alright. Meanwhile DMPC them in the process. If gone for a significant amount of time as FireclawDrake said then I would drop from the scenario with no chronicle awarded.


I have sent a PM. It's been 2 weeks since they have posted anything, and we are now at the junk race scene in The Commencement. The missing PC's help would be very useful, but I don't want to hold up the others any more than I have to at this point.

Dark Archive

I would then DMPC through the race and if he is not back by the end then drop the PC. I would not wait the entire 24 hours in between posts to DMPC either as it has been some time and a message has been sent. If or when he returns he can let you know.


That was my feeling also, but I thought I would check.

Grand Lodge

You might also wish to do some light digging to see if they have posted on any characters. Sometimes people post about an emergency or absence on a couple of their games but forget a game and it looks like they just disappear. Plus, if nothing else, that confirms they haven't posted anything anywhere on the boards for a couple weeks.


Venture Lieutenant, Play by Post (online), Hostess of Cottonseed Lodge (playtest)

You actually cannot choose to not give them a chronicle if they are far enough into the scenario. If they are past the point where they can withdraw with no consequences, they have to be given a chronicle for whatever partial credit they have earned. If they have disappeared, as a practical matter it's hard to get that chronicle to them, but you at least do need to include them in your reporting, probably with 0 PP, and give them their chronicle if they reappear. Often this partial chronicle will be for 0EXP/0PP, in which case its function will be to prevent them from replaying the scenario.

I'll be sure to look into that. I assume that is he completed 1 mission (The commencement) that he'd receive the rewards for that mission?

GM Tyranius PFS Reporting Tool | Scenario List | Scenario Sign-up Sheet

Yes, Apologies on the no chronicle rewarded portion. Redelia is correct. It is early in the morning for me :).

Here is right from the guide.

PG 11 of Starfinder Society guide: wrote:

APPLYING CREDIT

All players receive a Chronicle sheet unless, at the GM’s discretion,
they are replaying the Adventure Path for no credit.
Pg 14 of Strafinder Society guide wrote:
Award the character XP. A PC receives XP only if he survives the scenario or completed at least three encounters over the course of the adventure and is raised from the dead by the scenario’s conclusion. A character earns 1 XP for completing a scenario. Mark this value in the shaded XP Gained field (I) and initial the adjacent box.

The key is they would have had to have completed at least 3 encounters.


Thanks all. Appreciate the input.

I'd love to say I missed you all, but was too busy visiting ruins :-)

I got to both the oracle of Delphi and the temple of Poseidon (highly recommend anyone going to vist that chooses sunset as the best time to go). Of course maybe that conversation should be in Flaxseed.

Took a time machine back to the start of the big bang in Edinburgh, that is more Castamir's station material.
