Venture Lieutenant, Play by Post (online)

There were a few APs where volume 1 met the replay rules, so you could do the whole AP in campaign mode and also that first volume in society mode. Maybe that's what you're thinking of?


Catastrophe's Spark. ◆◇↺

Technically in PF1e, couldn't you have done the APs in both Standard and Core? Is that what you were thinking of?

Since they are different campaigns, that is certainly allowed.

Announcement

Alright folks, we have another 2x AcP Event Weekend coming up for the soon to be released One-Shots for Starfinder and Pathfinder 2E. Below you will find a sign-up sheet for GM Registration along with the weekend that your PbP / PbD Table must start on to earn double AcP. If you table starts before or after that allotted weekend then you will not receive the double AcP.

  • SFS One-Shot - The Great Grav-Train Robbery
  • PFS 2E Head-Shot the Rot

    Similar to Sundered Waves the VO team will create a separate event for this as well as use our reporting tool so that all PbP Games are consolidated on one event and easier for Alex to turn on once they are all reported in. I will email the event # and reporting form out via email to the GM's as it gets closer.

    At the moment all I can give you information on are the titles of the One-Shots and the dates for double AcP. Please keep an eye out for future blogs with better descriptions and product pages.

    I will be sending in the Scenario Support request for these items on October 10th. We do not yet know exact release dates nor when you will actually receive them so please be patient with that process. We just wanted to get word out so that you can plan ahead if you wish to run / play in these One-Shots.

    Where do we find out about those one-shots?

    @Hmm- I would create them a couple of weeks out from their starting weekend and start recruiting then. We are still a month out.

    @Aerondor- There isn't a product page up yet nor a description I can give you. The titles were announced at Gen Con and we were given permission to use these dates a little early for planning purposes. Wish I could give you more than that.

    And there was me thinking I was being especially dense. How long does the existing one shot(s) run? Are they scenario length? I'm guessing so, given it says they should be able to be completed in one sitting.

    Dark Archive

    Scenario and AP Tracker

    They are scenario length. Sundered waves ran a little faster and Dinner at Lion Lodge ran a little bit longer. They are generally played with the pregens provided as with Sundered Waves the pregens were all tied to each other with likes / dislikes that helped with the roleplaying. Dinner t Lionlodge they weren't tied together like Sundered Waves were but the pregens are build around the one-shot.

    I'm torn - heists, swindles, and overall larceny and roguish behaviour is my favourite genre, so the chance to PLAY such an extremely rarely catered for beast in an RPG is too enticing, so I'm trying to avoid GMing.


    Spoiler:
    Book reader 2/Japanophile 1/Cat Animal lover 1/Undecided 3

    I might end up with a little more GMing on my plate than normal, but I'd love to run a scenario for you Shifty, what with all of the scenarios you've GMed for me in the past and these one-shots are a good length for me. If you'd like I can save a spot for you.


    4-99 MAPS:

    Depending whats I my plate when they come out, I may run one as well.

    I was thinking that it would be a good place to reenter PBP GMing, since I have been absent for a while on freelancing gigs. Besides, I cannot resist a good train heist. I'd also be happy to GM for you Shifty.

    I'll run the train heist as well. Look forward to playing the PFS2 one though.

    Like Aerondor, I think I'll run SFS and try to play PF2.

    Guess I should look at running the PF2 adventure then. Guessing from the name it will involve guns and undead.

    Start is during SkalCon, just requires I prepare the opening post ahead of time. Hopefully I will have completed my Gameday X game by then.

    And here are those Grav Train pregens!

    Let's do crime!

    Grand Lodge

    Page 3 makes it sound like the players don't actually have to use the pregens. Is this to be allowed in Society play? Are players allowed to use the pregens but change equipment as suggested below? Or "minor aspects"? What's minor? An operative exploit? A feat?

    Or will there be a published policy to play the pregens as written for this event?

    Mixing up the Crew wrote:
    Your group might prefer to use a crew of your own creation for The Great Grav-Train Robbery instead of the pregenerated characters provided here. New characters should work fine in this adventure, or you might consider keeping the pregenerated stat blocks while changing equipment and minor aspects as necessary. Although everyone in the crew is a career criminal, they’re antiheroes in the Robin Hood sense, not outright villains, and any characters you create for the robbery should share a common philosophy that encourages cooperation and discourages unequivocally evil actions.

    Oh, and thanks for linking that, Oh Great Queen of PBP (forever Queen in my heart, at least.)

    It is Campaign mode so what you linked is correct. It is HIGHLY recommended that you use the pregens provided though as they are specifically built around the story with tie-ins not only to the story itself but usually to each other which helps with the roleplaying aspect.

    You can make minor tweaks to those pregens as you see fit for example the PFS2E ones for the latest one-shot had several feats and equipment that either did nothing or nulled out aspects of the class so you would likely swp those around a bit.


    "Doom Girl" // ♫ // ◇ ◈ ↺ // PbP Events // // PbP GM Kit // Year of Fortune's Fall // DA Duology Maps

    They really do look well-integrated into the story.

    Grav-Train One-Shot should not have been sent out to the GM's for the 2x AcP Weekend. GM's keep in mind to be eligible you must start your game on the weekend of Nov 11-14, 2021.

    Anyone planning to make bb-code of the pregens for player's aliases for PBP? I mean, I could start, but I'd hate to spend hours trying to get it all formatted, only to find out someone else had a macro or something and had it done in minutes.

    I'm letting my players choose their characters now by using the pdf, especially since I've got a player that's new to SF and PBP.

    I was going to whittle away at it this weekend, but I could certainly use the assistance. Lt me know which ones you are working on and I will work on another.


    Yikes. At least the art pieces look nice.

    LNA-464
    Operative 6
    advanced needler pistol +4

    They either forgot to add the BAB or the DEX bonus on this one...

    ---

    The better built pregen and they mangle it like that, poor bot.

    Grand Lodge

    I've done the Operative. I built it in HeroLab Online, then used HLO's export to BBCode option. It's not perfect, it doesn't include url links, but it doesn't take too long, and it's usable by players.

    I'll knock out the rest of them today or tomorrow. Once I'm done, I'll post a link to a Google Doc with the bb-code text.

    So far, the Operative is short one language and the needler attack is off by 4 as The Ragi noted

    If anyone wants to share their slide deck as payback, I'd really appreciate it.

    As promised. Here's the link to a Google Doc with bb-code for all 4 of the pregens in one file, in the order presented in the pdf. Commenting is allowed.

    Issues:

    Envoy: Short 1 language (not corrected). Note that Signature Item is from Tech Revolution, so I added the text since TechRev is not on AoN yet.

    Vanguard: None.

    Technomancer: I don't have AA2 in HLO so I don't have the Uplifed Bear. I had to build a custom race in HLO, and I can't be sure I got everything right. Please check it over. He seems to have 3 extra ability score points from the point buy than he should. I did not correct this, as I couldn't be sure it wasn't something I did wrong, and didn't want to invalidate the whole published build either way.

    Operative: As previously mentioned, short 1 language (not corrected), and ranged attack modifier is incorrect (fixed).

    Note too that none of them have Engineering tool kits, even though all of them except the Vanguard have ranks in Engineering. I did not fix that; though, I think it probably should be hand-wave-fixed.


    Female CN SRO Operative 6 | SP 42/42, HP 38/38, RP 8/9 | EAC 20, KAC 22 | F +3, R +9, W +6; +4 vs. target only humanoids | Init +6 | Percep +13, Sense Motive +12 | Speed 50ft, Climb 20 ft. | Active Conditions: none

    “If the statement of the entity with the unlikely call-sign ‘Nomadical’ is accurate *scoff* my program is missing a language interpretation and transmission sub-routine.”

    Here you go! Just make a copy for yourself! BTW, I normally put all the monsters on a slide directly, but with Option 2 and those teeny tiny squares, I decided to allow GMs to place their own creatures.

    A little bitty bantrid by my side
    A little bit of starship is all I need
    A little bit of Verces is what I see
    A little bit of party on the Sun
    A little bit of Eox all night long
    A little bit of Akiton, and I beam
    A little bit of you completes my team

    Mambo Nova Five

    The party's where the mission's found
    Briefing's done, head to the sound
    Oh yeah... we're adventure bound
    Take one step left and one step right
    One to the front and one to the side
    Clap your hand once then roll the dice
    And if it looks like this then you doing it right

    A little bit of lasers in my life
    A little bitty bantrid by my side
    A little bit of starship is all I need
