CURRENT STATUS (Effective 5/20/2018)

Accessible Areas H. Blood on the Snow (p. 21); I. Twinhorn Camp (p. 23) & J. Voice of the Shadow (p. 27) once H. Blood on the Snow has been completed.

Upcoming Areas J. Voice of the Shadow (p. 27) on May 30

Note: Encounter J. has an unusual status. It gets its own time on the schedule, but can also be started early if the conditions are met.

Why do we have a transition to Voice of the Shadow on May 30? The way I read it that is just one of the four possible encounters after Blood on the Snow and it does not have it's own time on the schedule. See page 20 and 21.

Idruzi will be looking for a spellcasting of Restoration once it is available. I think the Pathfinder caravan is assumed to be able to do things like that in this part of the scenario. Since the negative levels are (currently) temporary, I think the 100g version will suffice to remove them both?

I'm unfamiliar with any special rules regarding spellcasting during this scenario. Am I missing something?

Scarab Sages

HP 52/52; Panache 2/2; Reroll @+4 0/1; charmed life 4/4; CLW wand 47/50 Halfling inspired blade; AC 24; Fort +8; Ref +14; Will +9 (+11 vs fear); Init +8; Perc +12; SM+5

I think between the parts, it is probably reasonable to assume that given the number of pathfinder teams of high level around, most spell casting can be acquired for the usual cost. But probably not within given "parts". This is kind of similar to how we get hp and spells and such back after finishing part 1, but before we started part 3.

Medda is available in between parts after Part 1. Otherwise, I know of no available spell casting services in either version A or B. Chalk it up to table variation when the quoted player played A.

You are indeed correct! I don't want to retcon the Deepening Shadows condition, but will announce when we reach Bolstering Light.

Scenario, page 21 wrote:
If Part 3 is not the final part of the adventure, instead begin this part with the Deepening Shadows condition in play. Once the PCs have reported enough successes to meet the Uncertain Opportunity and later the Bolstering Light thresholds, announce that those respective conditions have replaced Deepening Shadows.

I recommend to also announce Uncertain Opportunity when that achievement is reached as it will give the players feedback that they are achieving something.

If there are any tables that have already started encounter J: Voice of the Shadow they can keep it as it is. For other tables it is easy to implement the Deepening Shadows conditions. I would not announce the condition with an overseer post.


AtAT | PFS2 1-03 | url= | SFS 1-25 | url=

That's what I'm doing: implementing deepening shadows without an announcement.

Well, that's Blood on the Snow finished a good 15 rounds after the last enemy dropped!

It turns out that a confused necromancer casting Magic Jar and attempting to possess other members of the party while the cavalier "rides" around on an insanity-horse is quite enough to keep a fight going long after all the (enemy) undead have been destroyed!

Chadius, you may have forgotten to report a success in part H, considering you reported diplomatic successes in part I but no successes in part H.


Thanks for the catch, I just reported a success in H.

My cross-tabular skills may be rusty, but I think the "Portal Closed" milestone is referencing the Dragon's Lair instead of Voice of the Shadow. I just reported success in Voice of the Shadow, but no change on tally page.

My employers have informed me I'll be attending conference out of state June 5, 6, and 7th. Though theoretically I could handle posting with the conference, I would prefer one of our amazing backups pick me up.

So to inform the masses and our glorious overseer GM Granta, I have reached out to our backup EM+GM.


Good to go.

Should be fixed now.


Hmmm... so the Portal part should be started today...
but we're still in Deepening Shadows conditions correct?

So the desecration effect will be in full force and unlikely to go away?

Do the portal successes count towards the general successes that curtail that condition? (They do not appear to, given the one already reported)

Sovereign Court

War for the Crown

We don't actually start the portal today. In SSB, we just continue until June 4. Though ideally, tables will finish the other encounters and move to the portal soon.

My wife just went into labor early so... help for my team if they need it, please. Currently they’re chilling after a portal victory. Thanks.

Happy thoughts for a smooth and relatively pain free delivery for your wife, Blake, and a happy start to life with the new little geekling.

Oh! Congrats and here's hoping for a smooth delivery and easy transition time for you and your family :D

Congrats GM Blake and best wishes!

Exciting times! I'll put myself down to cover you for the next few days.

Best wishes for the three of you.

Thank you, everyone. Mom and baby girl are doing well. I should be back to normal-ish by Monday. :)

Monday of which year? :p

Normal is overrated.

Can one of the backups take over for GMG/Magabeus for a bit? He had something urgent come up in real life. I think it's probably for a few days.


Umm... well, that might get interesting. 8P

I am back. Thank you for stepping in, Dennis.

Lantern Lodge

Sign up sheet Dragon.

I do't think I can cover Magabeus at the moment sorry. I'm at a conference, and also struggling a bit with recovery from a head wound I picked up last week. While not serious, it is leaving me quite fatigued


Am already on it... hopefully he's not gone for 3 days... else I'm going to be running 3 at once =)

If that happens, EM±GM, let me know and I can help out with one.


Venture Lieutenant Play by Post PBP GM kit

I expect to be back in business in 24 hours.

@Aerondor: are you still ok to cover for me this weekend?

Lantern Lodge

Sign up sheet Dragon.

I should be. It's more not wanting to load anything else on my plate for the next couple of days.


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post | League Group | TL;DR Group | Shore to Sea | Haunting of Hinojai

Just as a heads up I will be away at a convention from today (June 7th) through Monday (June 11th). EM+GM will be covering my table during this time and I should be back and able to resume my posting sometime on the evening of the 11th. Thanks again, EM+GM!


So, due to jumping in as backup on so many different tables at relatively the same time, I did a little investigating to see where the aid tokens were hiding.

And noticed that Token #1 hasn't gone anywhere in a month.

It last went to GMG... but as far as they're aware, they don't have one anymore, and just passed along token #2 yesterday.

Is there a way to check where each are currently hiding?

Silver Crusade

The recruitment thread is supposed to contain every transfer of aid tokens. If a table says they no longer have it but the aid token last shows it going there, I would check that table's GM's posts, to see if the token was only partly passed on.


18/23/28 - 15/17/19

Looks like #1's with Pirate GM as of the 23rd.

Opps, I had totally missed that we had token #1.

We'll get on that shortly

GM Dennis will be finishing the scenario as overseer. Due to some overwhelming life circumstances, I have to put Pathfinder completely on hold.

For the indefinite future, I will not even be logging into Paizo. My profile will be updated with methods for contacting me off the site.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the special, and a big thank you to Dennis.


Venture Lieutenant Play by Post PBP GM kit

Take care Granta. Hope to see you back sooner rather than later.


Hao Jin Cataclysm (Gameplay|Maps)

Thank you for everything GM Granta.

Thanks for posting this, Granta. Please take care.

Hmm


Solstice Maps

Take care Granta

In other news my Table is sitting on an aid token and not using it. Is there a table in need of a token.

Take care, Granta!

A note on timing: I'm in US Pacific Time, UTC−8:00. I'm not sure what time Granta was on, but if you see overseer posting times change a bit, that may be why.


Well... so I've been called in for a work-related thing, that will send me out on a boat in the gulf of alaska for a week and a bit (needless to say, no internet)

They originally said it would start on the 20th... so I was free and clear... but they have just now, pushed that all up a week or so.

So now I'm flying out on Tuesday (the 12th).

As such, I will not be able to do my pre-scheduled backup duties for Redelia on the 13th through 17th!
