Constantine is generally a typical debuffing witch (no slumber hex, though). Usually he prefers to harrass enemies, partially for character reasons partly to avoid stealing the spotlight. With this being hardmode I'm going to be more likely to pull out the big guns. That said, I'll have plenty of slots if anyone has particular requests.
I'll get some of the sheet up over the weekend, but I won't have access to some of my hard copy stuff until Monday.

Hey Ilmakis, thanks for offering to GM this series for us! Looking forward to being
spanked challenged by you again! I still remember the Siege of the Diamond City fondly. ;)
Hi guys thanks for joining :)
I will let you the week-end to finish to upgrade your character.
Once you've done it, tell me and I will audit it before the game start.
For now you are 5 characters (level 14 - 14 - 14 - 13 and 12) which put you at 13.4 so playing low tier without adjustment.
A little bit about me.
I'm Florent, the French Venture-Captain. I live in Paris and work in IT.
I play since the Pathfinder Beta after having done a little bit of 3.5 back in the days. PFS is my first experience as an RPG OP (I've played CCG before). I've GM a lot in Paris to launch PFS (being one of the few GM able to read english well enough) and do lots of PbP (mostly as a player) on the french Forums and here on Paizo since june 2013.
I like RP, and I like when my players play their character rather than just roll them.
I hope you will enjoy my GMing and if a rule discussion come to light, don't hesitate. I'm trying to be open-minded :)
If your character have some obscure rule please tell me, so we can discuss it beforehand.
It appears we are melee heavy so I'm gonna go with a more mobile spell list and try to stay on the move more than normal..
I can also adjust to be a bit more emergency healing and buffs as needed the next time we rest.
Also missed he took Craft for his day job, so I'll be rolling that at the end instead of Heal.
My recommendation is 12-13, but I fully expect to TPK either way. I'll tackle high tier if that is what everyone wants. We won't get to choose next time due to leveling up.
Also, I should mention that I have run the series, and will do my best to keep player knowledge separate.
I have one, but more than one is prob a good idea.. I need to roll a 5 to emulate, and its auto for the scroll with heroism up.. That said if someone can auto use the scroll it might be better.
Negative on the breath of life. If needed, he can prepare one casting, and pick up more scrolls. The tricky part is having it out in time to use it.
Being L12 I would prefer if we can play down of course. That said, I fully expect this, as a hard mode, to be highly challenging in lower subtier. Additionally I think the APL will switch to high subtier as soon as someone levels up (which could happen as early as after the first scenario given the post EotT crowd).
As for the scroll of breath of life, its interaction with a spring-loaded wrist sheath is highly prone to table variation, so I think it would be better to ask for Ilmakis's stance on the question first.

I'm here. I'm travelling tomorrow and will be on a short vacation until Wednesday but I should be able to check in each day. I believe I'm updated but I'll need to take a look.

about wrist sheath.
I allow scrolls to be store in it. But note that even as a swift action using it provokes an AoO.
remember that for scrolls you may need two rolls, one for the scroll itself (DD20+CL) and one to emulate the characteristic needed to cast the spell (DC25+Spell level) if your score is too low.
You need to have the right components in your gear to cast a spell (for costly spells). "Paying X golds doesn't count as having the equivalent diamond dust worth X gold in your gear".
If you have scrolls for spells with costly components, please add them to the scrolls cost and write how much (like restoration whose cost could vary from 100 gp worth of diamond dust to 1000gp)
During the game.
Please, describes me all the actions your character do (move, swift, free...) and if you have immediate action you want to use in certain case put them in spoiler.
I will also do all the saves, perceptions, initiative checks needed during combat, if you have rerolls Iet me know before hand so I will try to give you the opportunity to use it :)
Yea thats what I meant with emulate.. He needs a 5 with heroism to emulate for breath of life scroll and needs to just not roll a 1 in the scrolls use. Granted it's a bit harder if he doesn't have heroism up.. My resto scroll is just the 100 gp variety.
AS far as spell requests go Constantine it kinda depends on your patron.. It definitely looks like we will be in need of some aoe spells, as we have none atm. Im prob gonna memorize a fireball, some maybe a lightning bolt and cone of cold or something. Possibly a few heal spells, as we seem light on heals for a hard mode lol..
@Shump remember that you need a free hand to use lay of hand so with a heavy shield you must drop your weapon to do it. Also the Aegis of recovery is like your amulet of natural armor a neck slot. Both can't be active at the same time.
I suppose you hare a standard half-orc with class without archetype ?
@Kurik what bonuses gives you the sash of the war champion[APG] ? You don't have the bravery class feature nor armor training with only 2 level of unbreakable fighter.
@Basalte You can't use a wand to put a spell in a cracked vibrant purple prism ioun stone
Armor training. I'll have to doublecheck if HeroLab is in error about that. All it does for him is reduces ACP by one, so it doesn't really matter.
It would also have an effect on the inquisitor using the bane baldric, come to think of it.
I know, someone told me at the GardenCon this summer and I forgot to update. Thanks for the reminder! I don't need the ioun stone anymore since I retrained to Bloodrager instead of Barbarian, but it could come in handy if any caster have interesting 1st-level spells to cast in it. I'll empty it.
Good plan, I should do that as well.
I'd love that, Darius, yours will last much longer than the wand's. Thanks!

Oh I forgot to mention about my famliar. She usually hangs out stealthy on my person when adventuring so don't forget to roll her perception with the rest of us please. Also Darius's perc is +2 higher when she is around. Unless you object I'm fine with her going on his initiave to save time etc..
She has a spoiler tab in my profile, but I can link it here..

Starlight Blast (Su) As a standard action once every 1d4 rounds, a lyrakien can tap into the divine power of Elysium, unleashing a blast of holy starlight in a 5-foot burst. All creatures in this area take 1d4 points of holy damage, plus 1 point for each step their alignment deviates from chaotic good. For example, a chaotic neutral or neutral good creature would take 1d4+1 points of damage, a neutral creature would take 1d4+2 points of damage, and a lawful evil creature would take 1d4+4 points of damage. A DC 12 Reflex save negates this damage. Chaotic good creatures are unaffected by this ability. The save DC is Constitution-based.
Traveler’s Friend (Su) The performances and company of a lyrakien ease the burden of travel. Once per day, a creature may spend a minute listening to a lyrakien’s performance—doing so removes the effects of exhaustion and fatigue from the listener.
@Darius thanks, It was just to be sure she had the right bonus to her saves and skills.
About diamond dust. Is that for Stoneskin ? If so, this is not diamond dust, it's diamond dust + granite dust (so unable to be use for anything else).
@Kurik ok, what do you had to fix at the end ?
The sash problem. Also added a weapon cord for his axe, and converted cash into dust for carriage/components.
It is for stoneskin yes. I'll change it to just Stoneskin Dust.
And I just did a quick edit of her skills and a few were off, apparently not updated since leveling.. Its all fixed now..
|Constantine of Absalom|
My main weird thing on this character is the Curse of Vengeance Feat. If Constantine goes down, he's gonna do everything he can to take the enemy down with him. I don't leave the house without at least a few curse options prepared, but the most likely version will be using Greater Bestow Curse for a -12 CON penalty.
I also have planned spontaneity. I usually use those slots to mix a spell that's a huge help in specific circumstances with one that's a safer bet. Lightning Bolt/Speak with dead was a common choice at lower levels.
@Constantine & Darius & Shump could you create an aliase for your Familiar/Animal Companion ? Thanks :)
@All remember about immediate action, you can't use it if you are flat-footed. Remember also it costs you your next swift action and that Liberating Command asks for both immediate action of the caster and the target (and thus can't be used on yourself).
I have a question. I recieved the Moment of Glory boon from pfs gameday 2 and with being a hardmode camp I fully plan on using it. My questions is when you use it to become mythic for 3 rounds do you gain a mythic path, feat, path abilities, and bonus hp for the 3 rounds?
As far as putting extended shield into the ioun stone it makes sense to me. It's still a 1st level spell. Only it its heightened would it become a higher level spell.. Never heard it brought up before honestly. Im sure between the gms here it can get answered :)..
For your information, here's the exact text for the boon you're mentioning.
Moment of Glory: Whether it is by fate, fortune, or circumstance, you are able to tap into a hidden reserve of power at just the right moment to perform a truly extraordinary feat. By activating this boon as a free action, you become a mythic character (1st mythic tier) for 3 rounds. If you fall unconscious due to hit point loss during this time, you automatically stabilize without needing to attempt a Constitution check. In addition, once before this effect ends, you may use the surge mythic ability to increase any d20 roll you just made by rolling 1d6 and adding it to the result. Using the surge is an immediate action taken after the result of the original roll is revealed. This can change the outcome of the roll.
When you use this boon, cross it off your Chronicle sheet; however, anytime you successfully complete (earning the maximum possible number of Prestige Points) a scenario that using the “hard mode” option, you may have the GM sign this boon. You may use this boon one additional time for each such signature you receive.
They made the FAQ that says the spell is treated as whatever level is worse for the caster. So it counts as a higher level spell when determining costs and slots (including ioun stone slots) and the lower level for determining DCs and other things.
In general, use the (normal, lower) spell level or the (higher) spell slot level, whichever is more of a disadvantage for the caster. The advantages of the metamagic feat are spelled out in the Benefits section of the feat, and the increased spell slot level is a disadvantage.
Yea I knew yall would have the answer lol.. I'll save the rod charge and it will just last 13 mins Basalte.
As far as the boon goes it may not matter. I recieved it over 2 years ago and after looking I can't find the emailed copy anywhere. Looking back through pms I found where I won the boon and was told I would recieve it after the gameday was complete, but I have no such email :(.. At the time I simply copied/pasted the text so I would remember what it does, the same that Basalte linked. I'm not sure who to contact since it's been over 2 years ago, so I'm considering just saying nvm.
