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?

After absence due to having our first kiddo, I would like to get back into GMing for PBP and want to start with something relatively easy (for me).

For PFS credit, I would like to run "Mists of Mwangi" from Season 0 for 4-6 players, tier TBD by interested players (1-2 or 4-5). We will determine Standard Campaign vs. Core Campaign based on interest.

Below, please post the following using your PFS Character Alias for these Messageboards:

1) Class and Level
2) Desired Tier of Play
3) Standard Campaign or Core Campaign
4) Your perceived party "role" (front-line, healer, ranged combat, skill monkey, controller, blaster, etc.)

Game will take place here on the messageboards. I will receive submissions through next Wednesday, April 12, to begin on Friday, April 14. If there is a balanced party of 6 players before that date, we'll begin early.

My ideal posting rate is 1-2 posts per day, with notification for absences. I will likely use Google Drawings or Google Slides for the game mat.

Successful completion of this scenario will land players an invitation to a follow-up scenario (TBD).

Post questions below for assistance. I look forward to gaming with you!

Grand Lodge

I've been working on a Half-Orc Ranger for PFS play...mostly finished, just tweaking...

1) Ranger 1
2) 1-2
3) Could go with either Standard or Core
4) Ranged combat/Scouting

If selected, should be able to post multiple times a day, or as needed...

The Exchange

I'm interested. I can't make it to all of my local lodge's Core games, and this guy needs some XP.
1) Ftr1/Wiz1
2) 1-2
3) Core
4) Front-line (can now afford fullplate!)

Silver Crusade

Narayan has recently been freed up and would love to plunge into the mists

1) Unchained Monk 3
2) No preference
3) Standard
4) Frontline

1) Barbarian-2 (frontline-DD)
Druid/Fighter-3 (frontline-Tank)
Ranger-4 (frontline-DD)
Cleric-5 (healer)
2) Prefer High Tier
3) Can only do Core

If the group decides on Core then I can figure out what character we need. If not Core then I'll bow out.

Would prefer Google Slides, since it's editable on a phone.


I've got Copper Tam, a Standard level 1 Inquisitor, and Eveleth, a Core level 1 Sorcerer.

Silver Crusade

Narayan would enjoy fighting alongside Copper Tam again. Though there wasn't really much fighting last time :p

Sovereign Court

1) Unchained Rogue (investigator) 1
2) Tier 1, please
3) Standard
4) Skills and melee

Dark Archive

1) Class and Level : Bard-2
2) Desired Tier of Play - Low but okay in high
3) Standard Campaign or Core Campaign - CORE
4) Your perceived party "role" (front-line, healer, ranged combat, skill monkey, controller, blaster, etc.) [b]Skill (well, knowledge) monkey, provides backup healing and a little light missile assistance along with general advice (inspire courage!)

Sovereign Court

1) Class and Level : Investigator - Psychic Detective [L2]
2) Desired Tier of Play - 1 to 2
3) Standard Campaign or Core Campaign - CORE
4) Your perceived party "role" Detection, Kn skills, Face, ok combat with good range and Spells. She was surprisingly useful to the party in the last game she was in.

^ I think you meant "Standard"? Or do you have a CORE character?

Scarab Sages

So, making my earlier post more in line with my characters...

1) Iconoclast Inquisitor 1
2) 1-2
3) Standard
4) Perception/Sense Motive, frontline support

(Hi, Narayan! Yeah, it's fun with you!)

Liberty's Edge

And here's Wrong John Silver's other character:

1) Aberrant Sorcerer 1
2) 1-2
3) Core
4) ...oddly frontline

Liberty's Edge

Haven't statted me'sel' up yet, but Oi'll do that in short order. That's- that's not a Halfling pun. Mr. Trelawney and me are right-ready to get goin'!

1) Magical Child Vigilante 1
2) From level 1. (I think that's what you mean, first time doing PFS.)
3) Standard
4) Face and Control for now, though around Lvl. 3 he's going to suddenly become a frontliner since Mr. Trelawney is a tree and trees grow. True science fact. (At level 5 the tree might calcify or catch on fire or something, not sure. Don't like to plan ahead too much if it might ruin the fun of discovery.)


Thanks for submissions so far, everyone. Just FYI:

If the current trend holds, this will be a Tier 1-2 scenario (current count of 9 to 1).

It's almost evenly split between Standard and Core campaign characters. I won't commit to running two campaigns at one time, but I could see myself running Standard or Core first, then coming back to run the other if folks are still interested.

My only note for the Standard campaign is that there currently aren't any submissions for a "healer" role (though y'all might have the tools you need to make it, if you have potions handy).

I'll definitely give it another day (and this post bump) to collect interest from a few more folks, but we'll probably be able to start earlier than I initially anticipated.

More soon - thanks!

Scarab Sages

Any word on this?

Grand Lodge

I would love to play (I've GMed this one at a table, but haven't played it).

1) Cavalier (Beast master, order of the shroud) 2
2) 1-2
3) Standard
4) Frontline


Hi, everyone,

Thanks for patience as we went to the end of the originally set recruitment period. With submissions as they currently stand, I can run a 6 person table for the Standard Campaign Characters as follows:

Grynt - Ranger (Ranged/Scout)
Narayan - Unchained Monk (Frontline)
Copper Tam - Inquisitor
Giovanni - Unchained Rogue (Skills/Melee)
Lady Alya - Investigator (Skills)
Gardener - Magical Child Vigilante (Face / Control)

By tomorrow, make sure that your Character sheet is up to date. If you have received any chronicle sheets or boons that this character will utilize, please have them available for review in a digital format (image or pdf will be fine).

I've put a first post in the gameplay thread here.

Core Campaign Folks: I'll be happy to run this for all of you, too, if you are still interested in doing so after our initial run through with the Standard Campaign Folks.

Thanks!

Silver Crusade

Woohoo!

Lantern Lodge

Look forward to seeing core eventually.

Liberty's Edge

Aaa, sorry! It was my brother's birthday yesterday so I wasn't online, and I didn't realise this was happening so soon.

I'll get right on this.

Liberty's Edge

Roit: 'ere we go!

Here we are! Really sorry it took so long, had a panicky few days since posting here last and I wasn't sure this was still on.

I'm brand-new to PFS so I might have got it wrong. Anyway, I'll post in the gameplay topic as soon as possible.

Grand Lodge

Weirdly enough, the actual gameplay thread has disappeared for me, so I can't, in point of fact, post.

Silver Crusade

Yeah, that appears to be site-wide at the moment. Hopefully they'll fix it before going home for the holiday weekend...

Grand Lodge

The Gameplay thread is back up now...


Thanks for persistent checking, all. Once we have all 6 characters introductions, we'll continue.

Sovereign Court

Checking is GM

@Lady: Wasn't sure if you were aware but the Gameplay thread is live. Making introductions now...

Sovereign Court

Thanks and posted :)
#She is very prim and prop-per is our Lady Alya De-Qill
Likes things all in order.

Grand Lodge

We are not very good at gathering information, it would seem.

Pretty great at knowing the locals though; thanks Grynt.

Sovereign Court

test

test: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11
test: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (18) + 5 = 23

Grand Lodge

Genuinely sorry for taking so long you guys, had basically no internet for most of the weekend.

Grand Lodge

No worries, it was holiday weekend and wasn't much posting any way...

You might want to edit your last Gameplay post though, and change it to your Gardener alias...it's showing up as Nitro~Nina...

Liberty's Edge

Agh! I caught my most recent one, but the one before is no longer edit-able. Hope that's not too much of a problem...

Liberty's Edge

D,: I did it again! Sorry. Is there any way to make The Gardener my default for that thread only?


Not that I'm aware of. No worries! I'll know who it is, but try to remember as best you can.

Liberty's Edge

Just think of it as super-immersed rp. :P Loamy totally forgets which identity he's in sometimes. It's canon now.

(Really though, I will do my best. If this weren't PFS I'd suggest some sort of Disguise penalty each time I do it...)

Sovereign Court

This chrome extension will help set default aliases for campaigns among other things.
