Kensaku Rekishi, answering the call, the samsaran woman says with the wistful grin, thrinkets dangling from her armor as well as from different belts and sashes she wears, happy to be of service to the society.

A tengu in a slightly better-than-sleazy business courtier's outfit chimes in:

"The party of the first part, in this case, the Pathfinder Society, would like to inquire of the party of the second part, in this case, the adventuring expedition assigned to this situation, whether:

Party of the third part -- being myself, Karasuma Tazou, Attorney At Law

Party of the fourth part -- being Agraic 'Shieldarm', Scarab Sages associate

Party of the fifth part -- being Brigid 'Half-Human' Thundertone, Skald of Torag

Party of the sixth part -- being Estara Potts of the Dark Archive

would be most requested upon said expedition.

Upon determination of the inclinations of the expedition, the appropriate party will be dispatched to this expedition."

EDIT: Karasuma is a Rogue 5/Shadowdancer 1, Agraic is a UBarb 5, Brigid is a L2 Spell Warrior (Skald), Estara Potts is a L3 Telekineticist. There are also a lot of options at L1-2 available, as well.

Already played this one, TOZ. Thanks for offering me a spot, but I'll be passing this one up!

Hmm

Agraic may be fun to bring on this one. That's my vote, unless someone else has a beatstick they want to use.

Well! I would probably like to bring Darshan, my 5th level Investigator to this, because he isn't a member of a faction at all, uh-huh, nope, but, you know, may have a purely idle interest in things related to nobles and such.

So we currently have three and a pregen. I have heard calls for Amiri.

Sovereign Court

Given that we already have a Barbarian, but we don't have anybody divine, it might be worth thinking about Kyra.

The product description for the scenario mentions walking dead, but also mentions tangled web of Taldan politics.

I have to admit, I don't really have a good feel for the sort of role that an Occultist fills. The "Role" blurb in Occult Adventures says that he likes to travel with other adventurers... not very helpful. What sorts of things is Kensaku good at? If Kensaku is good at diplomacy/deceit sorts of things, then perhaps two barbarians are good at walking dead, and an investigator and an occultist are good at tangled webs of politics.

Kensaku is fairly good at knowledge things and buffing party members in combat. She's not bad at diplomacy, but definitely shouldn't be the face of the party. Oh, and she's really good at using magical devices, but that's a really niche thing so it usually doesn't help much

Shadow Lodge

Table Maps | Passing the Torch | Slaver's End

Level check? Darshan is 5, Kensaku is 4? And Agraic is a bit higher? Sounds like you guys might average to 3-4.

Silver Crusade

Male Human Things/20

I need to double check on Kensaku, she may have just leveled after her last scenario


? Retail Worker/12

Agraic is at 5, but have to make sure that this won't level him out of Part 2 of the Waterworld event

Silver Crusade

Male Human Things/20

Yes, Kensaku is indeed 5th. Updating her stat line and block now.

Shadow Lodge

Table Maps | Passing the Torch | Slaver's End

5 is the out of subtier level. Would you guys like a 4th or 7th level pregen? That will also decide which subtier you play, low or high.

Liberty's Edge

M Human Astrophysicist 10 / Linux Nerd 4 / Violinist 2 / Dramaturge 1

How deadly is this scenario? Are 3 5ths and a pregen 7 going to get murdered on 6-7? On the other hand, are 3 5ths and a pregen 4 going to find 3-4 to be a cakewalk?

Silver Crusade

Male Human Things/20

I bet we'll probably be fine. I'm willing to go to the 6-7, so it's up to Rob and Jim


? Retail Worker/12

Agraic isn't very 'tanky'... Close to a L7 Amiri, but in a different direction.

My gut feeling is always to 'play down' unless folks are actually at the tier in the question and I'm the 'outlier'.

...wasn't there a thread about this question...? :P

Shadow Lodge

Table Maps | Passing the Torch | Slaver's End

If you know of a fourth player that could make the call academic, feel free to let me know. :) I've reviewed the scenario and think the dice might be the deciding factor. It's a Season 0, so there is a lot of 'same creature but more' going on.

Silver Crusade

Male Human Things/20

Looks like we've got two for low, so I've been outvoted :-P

Shadow Lodge

Kyra pregen?

Liberty's Edge

M Human Astrophysicist 10 / Linux Nerd 4 / Violinist 2 / Dramaturge 1

Kyra pregen.

Did I vote low? I voted for the GM to tell us what he thinks we should do, really :)

Shadow Lodge

The GM shall decide and post an opener as soon as he can. Convention prep is a pain.

Next post will be tomorrow, waiting for our fourth party member to give yea or nay.


Commoner 18, Bard 5, Alchemist 4, Sorcerer 2

If I join in it'll have to be with my Summoner 7, which would push it into high tier. Are there any objections? It would also be my first PbP, so no hard feelings if you'd rather I sit out on this one.

Shadow Lodge

Table Maps | Passing the Torch | Slaver's End

According to Subtierranean the party will STILL get to choose low or high. With Chomper along, I recommend high tier to still have a challenge. :P

(Yep, exactly 5.5. :P)

Edit: Of course, without a dedicated healer, 3-4 might be better so you don't all die.

Liberty's Edge

M Human Astrophysicist 10 / Linux Nerd 4 / Violinist 2 / Dramaturge 1

I am in favor of not dying.


? Retail Worker/12

I'm not worried about challenge, with the consideration of not having a dedicated healer being kind of important.

That being said, I've played in scenarios where the lower tier was harder than the higher one... this isn't one of those, hopefully.


Commoner 18, Bard 5, Alchemist 4, Sorcerer 2

I am always a proponent of playing up when given the choice, but no one said I was smart. Either way, that's my vote.

Question: when somebody is paralyzed, are they poseable? (I remember a Buffy episode where Dawn got paralyzed, but others could move her limbs around.)

Because, you know, there's much opportunity for hazing hilarity if they are....

So y'all know : I'm going to GenCon. (As are at least two other people in this game....) I'm going to be GMing constantly, and won't be able to check in again until next Tuesday or Wednesday. (Tomorrow is drive day.)

I will also be at GenCon, but since I live on the forums, will still be checking in. :)
