GM-8574: Mists of Mwangi (2017) (Inactive)

Game Master Jason Lillis

A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 1st to 5th level characters (Tiers: 1–2, 4–5).

Pathfinder Lugizar Trantos recently returned from the Mwangi Expanse with haunted eyes and a pack full of strange idols. Absalom's famed Blakros Museum purchased his pieces and Lugizar vanished. The strange monkey idols he pulled from the misty jungles of Mwangi carry with them a fell curse, and now their power has laid claim to the museum. Can the Pathfinder Society uncover the source of the curse in time, or will the Blackros Museum be forever lost to the mists of Mwangi?

As I haven't done any other than the Glass River Rescue, and would like to keep our mighty monk on board, the two mentioned by Narayan sound fine by me...


Sounds good. I'll start prepping for Voice in the Void. Your APL is 3 (12 levels / 6 players + 1 for 6 players = 3), and Voice in the Void offers a tier 3-4 subtier. Are y'all ok with that level of play? It shouldn't be that much more deadly, but one never knows...

I'm good with that.

Quick note: I'm going to be wielding a double-chained kama from now on, but I'm going to be calling it a bladed scarf.

I only have lvl 1 characters. I can do a pre-gen (double-checking that credit can be applied to an existing character when it reaches that tier) if that helps our survivability.

I've got a 3rd level Ranger that's available that I could play so that's fine by me. Do you think we'd be through by late August when the gameday events start? He's signed up to play then...


I think we can get everything through by late August. Do you have a projected start date for Game Day?

It's August 25th...


Got it - yeah, if we start by July 1 (if not before) then we can be done by then. Thanks!

No worries...and I can start before then if you (and the other players) are ready before then...

Just confirming that I can do a pre-gen if we're doing that tier. Also that i'm not missing a start date on this.


PFS Campaign Guide wrote:

TIERS AND SUBTIERS

Roleplaying Guild Scenarios are designed so that players of a variety of levels can participate in a given adventure together. Every scenario has a tier range and many have associated subtiers. Tiers indicate which character levels are legal for that scenario. If a PC’s level does not fall within the tier, that character cannot legally play in that scenario.

• Tier 1 (no subtier)
• Tier 1–2 (no subtier)
• Tier 1–5 (Subtiers 1–2 and 4–5)
• Tier 1–7 (Seasons 0–2 only, Subtiers 1–2, 4-5, and 6–7) - Voice in the Void falls here, but the chronicle sheet has Subtiers 1-2, 3-4, and 6-7
• Tier 3–7 (Subtiers 3–4 and 6–7)
• Tier 5–9 (Subtiers 5–6 and 8–9)
• Tier 7–11 (Subtiers 7–8 and 10–11)
• Tier 12+ (Seeker Content; Subtiers 12–13, 14–15, and 16+)

Within each tier, PCs or pregenerated characters should be used in the subtier in which they fall whenever possible, but they may be adjusted up or down, based on the average party level at the table, as outlined below. For scenarios with more than two subtiers, characters must be in adjacent subtiers to play together.

My read on this is that you are all between levels 1 and 4, and so only one tier apart from each other. Those in the "lower" tier will get out-of-tier rewards for the scenario. It's more than you would normally get, but not as much as the folks in levels 3-4. Make sense? So you shouldn't have to play a pregen unless you want to. Thanks!

You know, on reviewing, I'm not sure that the +1 to APL for 6-person parties is still a thing, even for the older scenarios, though we are obligated to play up if we have the option if we have the 6 person party IIRC, so it may be moot depending on which characters end up showing up.

Or I could've absolutely missed something in the current guide :)

Going to play the sane pc if she fits


Thanks - sometime later today or tomorrow, I'll set up a "recruitment" page where everyone can check in with the character they'd like to use. I'll post the link for it here when it's ready, and you can check in with an alias for your preferred character. If anyone wants out before we get going, we can always recruit another player to join us.

Have a good one!

Say, I've been thinking about how I'm designing my character for Level 2, and before I play with her at that level, I'm looking over all my character's choices. Right now, I've got a (generally considered substandard) trait, Bullied. +1 attack on unarmed attacks of opportunity. Now, I am designed as a reach fighter with IUS, Step Up, and Combat Reflexes, so it's not out of the realm of possibility to get to use this with some regularity.

But is it really the best choice? Not sure. Thoughts?

I think it depends a little on how you're intending to continue with Inquisitor and Monk Levels.

If you're going to mainly go Monk, then I might recommend Honored Fist of the Society for +1 ki pool once you get it, but if Monk is more of a dip, and you'll be primarily leveling as Inquisitor (or splitting them evely), Magical Knack is pretty great for multiclassed casters.

I think Bullied should probably be fine, but from a mechanical perspective I think the other two could definitely be helpful (and don't seem like a total non sequitur for Copper's backstory).

It's a monk dip, 2 levels at most. Magical Knack is a possibility.

(I've already got Birthmark, and I'm keeping that.)
