Bad luck with failures to close some locations may mean we're not going to win this one.


Due to the site downtime I'd highly suggest everyone here organizes some sort of Out-Of-Band communication method so we can all keep in touch in case things go down, and let people know when things get back up and it's their turn. I hang out on the PFS discord which you can reach at pfschat.com; I'm around the ACG channels as well as #pbp_gameday_vii which is where announcements related to Game Day will be made. I'm there as skizzerz (aka Lehran#0605), if you want to drop me a DM to let me know who you are so I can poke you about site downtime/uptime or if you have any questions that are best asked in private.

Other tables have organized other chats such as Hangouts in order to discuss strategy and stuff as well. If someone starts one of those, let me know and I'll add the link to the Campaign tab; I won't be joining myself though since I don't have/use Hangouts.


I'm GM Paladin on that Discord chat.


I’m also in discord, “masaru” Vincent, same name basically, just typed differently.

I’m happy the forums are back and got lucky with the card draw, especially the location.

I too am on PFS Chat. Yiroep (GM Andrew)

I will be at Dragon Con this weekend. It starts officially about 48 hours from this post and lasts til Monday. I am not doing too much there but there could potentially be an outage from me.

If anyone else is there, I will be wearing the nametag "Yiroep (GM Andrew)."


I'm Eddiephlash on Discord. And basically everywhere. I'll try to take my turn soon!


I'm Bigguyinblack on discord.

Dragon con in full swing for me. Posting will be very sporadic.


I am khazkhaz on Discord. I'm ok with Hangouts as well. I know I'm on Hangouts with a few of the guys here in my other games.


Female Human Ninja, Tier 3, Deck Handler

Sorry guys, probably won't be able to pay till tomorrow evening.


Congratulations, that was down to the wire! I’ll get the development flavor text and next scenario up tonight.

In the meantime, you an take a look at deck upgrades (I’ll post a full list of those later tonight as well, but I’m the meantime you can use the list from my last update plus any booms people acquired since then). Reward is “Traders: Falsin Deek, Ghoul Market, Sunburst Market” and if this was your first scenario in your tier, you also get a Skill Feat.

Additionally, everyone can roll 1d20 for a boon; 1 or 20 wins! See here for the list. Boon?: 1d20 ⇒ 14


Grazzle's deck Desired upgrades: None until tier 3

boon?: 1d20 ⇒ 5

Looks like item 1, ally 1, and a lot of Bs including 1 spell.

Choice 1. Item 1. I would like to trade out my Bestiary of Garund for a Binder's Tome (Reveal to add 1d4 and the mental trait to any combat or charisma based non-combat check at my location.)
random roll: 1d1000 ⇒ 927

Choice 2. Spell B. I would like to upgrade my Viper Strike (2d4 dmg poison) into a Holy Light (2d6 dmg, 2d12 instead vs undead.)
random roll: 1d1000 ⇒ 913

Choice 3. Armor B. Replace Crocodile Skin Armor with Armor of the Sands. We got multiple armors so a roll shouldn't be needed.

Oh and skill feat will be +1 to charisma.


Link to Deck Handler ; Looking For: Spell 1 -> Weapon 1 -> Blessing B -> Ally B

Boon: 1d20 ⇒ 15

Erasmus is going to gain a Skill Feat in Dexterity.

First choice: Weapon B random roll: 1d1000 ⇒ 799

Second choice: Item 1 random roll: 1d1000 ⇒ 595

Third choice: Armor B random roll: 1d1000 ⇒ 258

Fourth choice: Blessing B random roll: 1d1000 ⇒ 311


1d20 ⇒ 8


1d20 ⇒ 18

I have questions about how this part works so I'll need to read the guide in more detail.


Female Gnome Combat Paladin, Tier 5, Deck Handler

Reward?: 1d20 ⇒ 7 No reward.


Grazzle's deck Desired upgrades: None until tier 3

You can ask them here. I'll go over how this works for the newer players.

We will each get to upgrade 1 card in our deck. Things go faster and simpler if you list your top 3 - 4 choices and roll a d1000 for each. High roll wins.

The cards we found don't matter. What does matter is the type and rarity.
When upgrading you will use a card from your deck or decks.

For example there is 1 Ally 1. Let's say Qualzar wants it and rolls the highest on his d1000, He would take an ally out of his deck, Replace it with an ally 1 from whatever box or boxes he built his deck from, then that that ally is a permanent addition to his new deck.

All of those basic and B boons we found are considered B upgrades.
So for your upgrade you could say you want an armor B. You would take an armor out of your deck and replace it with any B armor, Even if it isn't basic.

Spells, items, and blessings are good finds because there are often good choices that are B rarity but not basic.

Traders
In Season of Factions’ Favor, traders work differently than in Mummy’s Mask, in the following ways.
• When you are rewarded with a trader, instead of checking it off on the Bazaar card, record it on your Chronicle sheet.
• You do not visit traders after winning a scenario. Instead, at the start of each scenario in this Adventure Path, before setting out the locations, you may visit 1 trader you have recorded on your Chronicle sheet.
• Pay the trade cost with the usual number and type of cards from your deck, but instead of putting those cards in the box, put 1 in to your deck box and bury any others.
• At the end of the scenario, return the card you traded for to the game box, and put the card you returned to your deck box back into your deck.
For example, to pay the trade cost to a trader offering spells at a cost of 2 boons, put 1 of those boons into your deck box, bury the other boon, then add the spell to your deck. At the end of the scenario, return the spell to the game box and put the first boon back in your deck.

Falsin Deek: Items 2 boons
Ghoul Market: Armors 2 boons

However the Sunburst Market works differently and is what most of us will be using for awhile.
Instead of trading say 2 armors from our deck for 1 random armor we can go to the Sunburst Market and trade any boon from our deck for any boon listed in the Sunburst Market.

They are all basic cards but it adds a lot of flexibility.
Pick any card in your deck that you feel you don't need and get a blessing, ally, spell, etc... of your choice from the Sunburst Market's selection of wares.

So in my case I will probably trade my Pick for a 3rd Cure or maybe a Remove Curse. At the end of the next scenario I return the spell back to the box, (It isn't counted as an acquired card.) and put my pick back in my deck.
But since we have access to these traders for every game (As far as I know) I could just keep trading in my pick for a basic card from the Sunburst Market.


OK So I get one card as a reward, and I roll off with others to see which one I get?

The choice of cards is the sorcerer deck I have and up to one additional add-on deck, right?

I guess my choices will be:

Ally 1 1d1000 ⇒ 171

Spell B 1d1000 ⇒ 635

Item 1 1d1000 ⇒ 354

Weapon B 1d1000 ⇒ 871

And if I can't get any of those, I'll take an item B which we seem to have a surplus of.

My skill feat will be a +1 to Charisma.


So I can get any boon I want from the sunburst market? If so I'd like to exchange a blessing of the gods for a blessing of the elements.


Grazzle's deck Desired upgrades: None until tier 3

Yes. You don't even have to trade in a blessing. You can trade any card in your deck.


Female Gnome Combat Paladin, Tier 5, Deck Handler

Ally 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 436 (Retriever)
Weapon B: 1d1000 ⇒ 783 (Lance)
Armor B: 1d1000 ⇒ 462 (Fireproof O-Yoroi)

Skill Feat: +1 to Strength


Grazzle's deck Desired upgrades: None until tier 3

We can't move on until everyone posts what deck upgrade and skill upgrade they are taking.

Just list them in preference and roll a d1000 by each.

Mummified Cat (Item 1)
Idorii (Ally 1)

Blowgun (Weapon B)
Acute Senses (Spell B)
Catching Cape (Armor B)
Crocodile Skin Helmet (Armor B)
Crocodile Skin Lamellar (Armor B)
Filter Hood (Armor B)
Tussah Silk Coat (Armor B)

Camel (Ally B)
Dhabba (Ally B) x2
Pahmet Clanman (Ally B)
Porcupine (Ally B)
Shock Lizard (Ally B) x2
Tarworks Master (Ally B)
Tomb Raider (Ally B)


Item 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 303
Item B: 1d1000 ⇒ 42
Weapon B: 1d1000 ⇒ 908

Looks like I get the Weapon B. Highest roll?


Grazzle's deck Desired upgrades: None until tier 3

So we have

Qualzar +1 charisma

Ally 1 171
Spell B 635
Item 1 354
Weapon B 871

Mogmurch Skill upgrade unchosen. Replay?

Item 1 303

Raz the Noble +1 strength

Ally 1 436
Weapon B 783
Armor B 462

Erasmus +1 Dexterity

Weapon B 799
Item 1 595
Armor B 258
Blessing B 311

Grazzle +1 Charisma

Item 1 927
Spell B 913
Armor B

Aric - 勝20100 MIA

So far
Item 1 Grazzle with a roll of 927
Ally 1 Raz the Noble with a roll of 426
Spell B Qualzar with a roll of 635
Item B Mogmurch No roll needed
Weapon B Erasmus no roll needed since Mogmurch chose item over it.

I've already earned the skill feat for the tier.


I am OK with this. Now to decide what B-level spell to use... I think I'll replace Confusion with a combat spell. Not a lot to pick from in my deck. I'll use Lightning Touch.


OK, I just read throught the post to understand how this works.

Skill Feat is +1 Charisma for Aric and +1 Dexterity or the Red Raven.

I’ll let go our only weapon.

First pick is Ally 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 750

Second pick is Item 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 449

Third pick is ally B, and there is enough for everyone so no roll.


OK so I get Ally 1 if I’m correct, it is Dandy Brute.


Grazzle's deck Desired upgrades: None until tier 3

That bumps Raz down to armor b.


Female Gnome Combat Paladin, Tier 5, Deck Handler

Tis ok. I grabbed an extra mount from the market.


Is the order of play determined by how we completed the last scenario?


Link to Deck Handler ; Looking For: Spell 1 -> Weapon 1 -> Blessing B -> Ally B

I think he is just bumping the person who was last to first and moving everyone down one each scenario. It's a pretty fair way to do it.


Qualzar wrote:

Yes. 1st turn of new scenario is whoever would have been next in the previous one had it not ended. For example, if Mogmurch/khazkhaz won this scenario, then Raz/eddiephlash would go first in the next one. That way everyone gets close to an equal number of turns across all scenarios.

Silver Crusade

ship stats:
Speed 6; Maneuver: avg (turn 2) AC 16; TL 15 HP 140; CT 28 Shields 21 (fwd 7, port 0, stbd 7, aft 7) Attack (Fwd) heavy laser cannon (4d8); (Tur) coilgun (4d4) Power Core 150 PCU; Mods: +1 Pilot; Complement 2–6
Copper Gate | Skittershot | We Be 5uper Goblins!

Makes sense.


skizzerz informed me that I may take a card feat for this scenario.

Adding Immolate to my deck.

I won't be tiering up. I'll tier up with everyone else.


Also, who do I message regarding joining the Hangouts or Discord group (if any)?

Specifically, 4-1A was your 4th successfully completed scenario in Tier 1, and the Guide doles out feat rewards as follows:

1. On your 1st successfully completed scenario of your tier, you gain a Skill Feat
2. On your 2nd successfully completed scenario of your tier, you gain a Power Feat
3. On your 4th successfully completed scenario of your tier, you gain a Card Feat and can optionally increase your tier
4. On your 5th successfully completed scenario of your tier, you can optionally increase your tier
5. On your 6th successfully completed scenario of your tier, you are required to increase your tier

All of this is found in the Card Guild Guide, among other things. If you weren't aware of this progression, re-read the guide. If you haven't read it yet, download it and read it.

Got it. I have two scenarios left before I’m required to tier up.

To my knowledge we have no set discord channel or hangout channel for this table. If Skizzers wan't to create one I'll join.


I need everyone's PFS numbers (including the character id), so I can get a start on reporting. If you are not playing a brand new character, please also state how many scenarios you have previously successfully completed before starting at this table.

As for hangouts, I don't personally use it but it can be a good way to speed things up for strategy discussion, etc. If someone wants to start one, please do so and invite everyone else! Joining will be optional, but if someone starts one up I recommend you join if able.


225148-1004


I think I put it somewhere else (signup or my deck handler maybe), anyway this is a brand new character and is my 93504-1001.


Grazzle's deck Desired upgrades: None until tier 3

# 145373-1005 and I created him for this table.


42641-1001 This is a brand new character.


Raz: 134467-1004. Paladin + Ult. Combat. New for this table.


Link to Deck Handler ; Looking For: Spell 1 -> Weapon 1 -> Blessing B -> Ally B

43439-1008. Brand new character.


Ultimate Combat with Raz is really great. The extra mounts aside, these armors that add to diplomacy checks really synergize well with her "use Diplomacy for acquisitions" power.

3 diplomacy checks this turn, all successes!


So, how is death handled in this situation? I've looked at the guide and it indicates that die bumps can be used to keep characters from dying, but I don't think we've gotten any yet, have we?


Sorry, I had no time on Sunday to do much of anything. I'm trying to untangle everything now. Updates will be posted to the Gameplay thread.

Re death: you get die bumps after finishing every scenario in an adventure with a single character. Nobody has any yet here. If you die, your only option would therefore be starting over with a new character should you wish to continue playing.
