Honorbound Emissaries

Welcome and thanks for signing up for this run of the "Into the Unknown" quest series folks!

First off, I'd like to introduce myself a bit to those of you who haven't played with me before. I'm GM Mjolbeard. I've been playing SFS since its debut last year, much of which has included PBP as a venue. I highly value the game, and love to do as much as I can to throw in a lot of role-play with my roll-play, as the saying goes. With that in mind, here are a few expectations that I will hold for myself as well as my players in this game:

1) Please try to maintain a posting rate of 1+ post/weekday. Weekends are almost always busier for me than weekdays in one way or another, so I may or may not post during that timeframe. I'd accept the same from you. Within those posting rates, I'd love to see as much role-play from each of you as you feel comfortable with. Particularly good role-play can potentially earn things like circumstance bonuses on various rolls.
2) Please list important information about your character in the Classes/Levels section of your stat block. Please also have your full character sheet available in your character's profile. If you're at all unsure what I'm talking about, feel free to take a look at my SFS characters for some examples.
3) I'll roll initiative for combats and perception for potential surprise situations. I'll also provide information for knowledge checks in spoilers with the DCs listed. Please refrain from reading the spoilers unless you make the DC with the appropriate skill check.

That's it for the most part. As far as start date goes, I'd like to have everyone dotted in and getting warmed up on Friday, April 20, then we'll really get things going after the weekend on Monday, April 23. For now, please provide the requested info for your character using the template below. You can also dot in on the gameplay thread with your character of choice.

I have GM'd this quest and played it twice.

I ran 2 of the quests for a local face-to-face group and applied the chronicle sheet to my 703 character. So, I plan to split the chronicles between this, my 703 character (GM Baby), and my 706 character (which is finishing up Commencement for Outpost) character, if that is alright.

I will, however, play a pregen for continuity throughout all 5 quests

Character: Pregen (will choose depending on party make-up)
I have yet to play a solarion or mystic, so leaning towards one of them if all else is the same

Great! I am hoping to use this game for part of an Alien Archive boon. I realize that there are many factors that affect the pacing, but with that in mind, let me still ask, what do you think is the likelihood that we can finish before the June 14 deadline for the boon?

I have played and GMed this. I'd like to bring my 2xp GM Credit Baby Nuar Mystic. I'm dotting in for now and will have him completely statted up by week's end. I haven't dug through Pact Worlds yet and I was told there's an archetype in there I might like. For now...

From what I've seen of the scenario in reading through it, it seems like it'll play fairly quickly, so there's a chance we might make it in time for the boon. That said, I know I've got some pretty busy weeks coming up by the date you mentioned, so I don't know if I'd feel comfortable making any promises at this point.


Honorbound Emissaries

Also, welcome, Braford! Glad to have you aboard!

With Braford joining us, we're up to legal table size, so there's one exciting note!
Looks like we have a Mystic, Technomancer, Envoy, and whichever pregen Sev chooses. Seems like we could have a pretty interesting party on our hands!

No problem. I'm in either way!

I am considering abandoning my pregen idea and playing a new PC straight through. if so, i will post new PC here before we begin.

Wait, the Nuar are a legal race? If that's true then I might need to change all of my SFS characters.

It's a GM boon, though I do not recall for which Mega-Region this season.

Looks to me, like there are more players than slots! If that is the case, then I am willing to bow out as I have played the scenario twice already.

Alternatively or in addition, I've run most of these quests before and I'd be willing to run a separate table of this, if there is enough demand for it.

I received it (and my first GM Nova) at ConQuest in Sacramento, CA last month.

You can also choose the monkey-like race; I can't recall their name but they remind me of Vanara.

I apologize if my prior post was seen as an attempt at "recruitment" for my own game in another GMs' thread. If so, that was not my intention.

If GM Mjolbeard can provide room/tables for everyone, great! If not (which given the time commitment for a GM is understandable), then I just want to make sure those who have to be turned away from this table, get a chance to play.


Honorbound Emissaries

No problem, Sev! Unfortunaltey, I won't be able to run two tables of this at the moment.

The good news is that we currently have 8 people interested, not including Sev himself, so we do have enough players to split into two tables of 4. Better yet, I'd love to play this series as well if you run a table Sev, assuming you don't mind me having some knowledge on the scenario since I'll be running it at the same time. You would still be welcome at my table as well, if you still want to play in addition to GMing.

Sounds like a plan! I'd love to have a seat at your table and more than happy to have you at mine. I will set up a Campaign thread and post a link here sometime tomorrow and get things rolling.

But who'll be at which table. It looks like there's already three ysoki here. The thought of an all ysoki game makes me happy.

I think I'll be melee and wisdom skills. Sense Motive, but no social skills. No intelligence skills, either. If that helps for party makeup.

Devil We Know | Burden of Envy | B12 Somewhere Below (GM School)

I have set up a second table game thread here for once we decide who is playing at which table.

I'll leave it up to GM Mjolbeard as to how best to divide up players. It looks like there will be one table of 5 and one of 4 at present.

Unfortunately, my ysoki melee soldier PC, "Lightfoot", will be tied up until the end of Outpost, unless folks who want an all ysoki party want to wait that long.

Sounds good, I’ll whip together my operative’s sheet this weekend so he’s ready to go at whatever table.

Second Seekers (Jadnura)

Nuar Technomancer (10)

My Halfling Operative just hit 3rd level. She's by far my favorite character. Hopefully you enjoy yours just as much!


Honorbound Emissaries

I'm counting a total of 10 players here, to split between the two tables:

Sev - ??? (Playing on Mjolbeard's table)
Mjolbeard - ??? (playing on Sev's table)
Dennis Muldoon - ???
Laniakea - Woioko Envoy
Braford - Nuar Mystic
Levylissa Li Lilley - Lashunta Envoy
Skeemo - Halfling Operative
Tchisk - Ysoki Technomancer
Flint Locke - Ysoki Soldier
Ningth - Ysoki Envoy

Shall we do a small party and a tall party? If Sev would like to take the small party, I could play either my ysoki technomancer (with a bit of a different build from Tchisk), or I could play the iconic mechanic.

Then I would take Sev, Dennis, Laniakea, Braford, and Levylissa.

Sound good?


Devil We Know | Burden of Envy | B12 Somewhere Below (GM School)

Oh, rats!

Just kidding. I am quite fine with that. Although, I'd like to reserve the right to play a token "small" character at the "tall" table if that's okay.

Also, in helping to make my character selection, let me ask this --
Has anyone at the "tall" table NOT played 1-09 Live Exploration Extreme yet? I'm considering using a boon from that chronicle, but I am reluctant to do so if someone hasn't played yet for spoilery reasons.

If you'd actually prefer to play a small character, I'd be glad to take the small table. I've actually got a lot more character ideas I can get together for the tall table.

Or did you just want to be the odd-one-out at the tall table? Haha!

Nuar Technomancer (10)

I've played and GMed Live Exploration Extreme!. That's actually one of the two Chronicles Braford has ^_^

It doesn't have to a short/tall thing. I just noticed we had several ysoki earlier. Just let me know which table I'm at, have PC will game.

I would love to play at whatever table Dennis Muldoon is at ^_^

Grand Lodge

He/Him

Heck yeah! I haven't actually built this character yet, maybe I'll do a matching Nuar...

Second Seekers (Jadnura)

Nuar Technomancer (10)

Although he's ready to play, I have a jumble of ideas for him and a Vesk that I need to sort through and separate. Both have a racial Strength Bonus and Natural Weapons but one I want as an Envoy and the other as a Mystic. One I want as a Steward (probably the Envoy) and one I want as a Knight of Golarion (because I picked up a Boon for it). But then there aren't any Mystic Connections I like for the Nuar, except Mindbreaker (which really would be purely flavor; mechanics are terrible).

It's kind of a mess, but I'm hoping that playing something will help me decide what I like.

Grand Lodge

He/Him

I'm leaning toward a soldier (which I haven't played yet) with the Armored Storm battle style, to take advantage of the Nuar charge and natural attack. We shall see.

Hi there! I'd like to throw my hat in as well if it's not too late. I've played this before but have not yet GM'd it. However, I am thinking to start up my own table in the near future as well.

I'm pretty open to playing any class... This character's profile is currently set up with a ysoki technomancer build but I'm not yet decided if I'll stick with it. So if there is still space at any table, just throw me in and I'll quickly whip up a character with whatever class is most lacking at that table!

I'll a complete noob on Starfinder, so I have yet to play the mod in question. But don't let that stop you in slotting a boon.


Honorbound Emissaries

Ok! I'm gonna go ahead and close the recruitment now. Thanks for joining in the fun, Kaiole!

We'll do the small/tall thing, just for the heck of it. Gotta do what we can to mix it up with these replayable scenarios right?

So, I'll be taking our small table, which will include the following:

Mjolbeard's (Small) Table
Sev's small character
Skeemo - Halfling Operative
Tchisk - Ysoki Technomancer
Flint Locke - Ysoki Soldier
Ningth - Ysoki Envoy
Kaiole - Ysoki Technomancer

Those on my table, please go ahead and dot into the gameplay thread. I'll remove anybody who posted there who will end up at the other table.

Then we'll also have...

Sev's (Tall) Table
Mjolbeard's character (TBD)
Dennis Muldoon's character (TBD)
Laniakea - Woioko Envoy
Braford - Nuar Mystic
Levylissa Li Lilley - Lashunta Envoy

Speaking of which, Sev, that link to your thread in your post above isn't working for me. Could you direct those of us who will be at your table to the correct campaign?

Here is the link to Table 2="Tall table" Discussion thread.

Edited the link to go to Discussion rather than directly to gameplay in order to get all PC info in one place.

Alrighty, seeing as Tchisk is already on board as a technomancer, I'll switch to something else.

Sev, you mentioned you were thinking either solarion or mystic. If you go solarion, then I'll go mystic. If you go mystic then I'll go with mechanic...or maybe solarion but probably mechanic.

@ Kaiole - Go ahead and choose what you want to play. I am still kicking around a few ideas. As this was an intro scenario and with there being a "full" table of 6 PCs, I don't think that a party has to be too "well-rounded" to be successful. That being said, a mechanic is almost ALWAYS helpful to have in a scenario like this with

one of the tags this scenario has.:
