Aerondor, I know you're already covering GMG's table next weekend. Do you have capacity to take on Redelia's table as well, or should I look for an alternate arrangement?

Sorry to hear that Granta, definitely hope to see you back on this soon.

Additionally, Due to a long weekend coming up here, I may be able to assist with some back up duties. But before the 19th of June, as that's when work will start getting hectic again.


18/23/28 - 15/17/19

Sad to hear that Granta, but I'm glad you're taking the time you need.

Best wishes Granta. Take care and hope everything turns out ok.

Sign up sheet Dragon.

@Grants - best wishes. I hope everything works out.

@Dennis. I should be okay to cover both for a few days. That said the head injury is still leaving me pretty fatigued. I get home from work and pretty much go straight to bed. So if someone else can step up that would be best, if they can't I can at least keep things ticking over.

Batpony, I need someone from the 13th through the 17th. Aerondor has stated above that he can do it if needed, but it would be better if someone else does.


Solstice Maps

I can cover Redelia's table Its the same tier as mine and I have the time to spare that week

Perfect, thank you!


Are people reporting the Leaf and Scale encounter (the first one with the Kobolds and the Dryad) as a success?

It does not have any sort of reporting note attached to it. Is it supposed to count? (didn't last run).

Reporting: If the PCs successfully overcome this encounter, report one success to the Overseer GM.

They didn’t put reporting on a separate line, but they did include it.


Hmmm...

Ah, the lack of a carriage return was causing my eyeballs to go right over it!

Thanks Bret.

EM GM, I already reported the success for my table!

Was checking for another table. =)

Question, as we approach the end: Did Granta add any of you as reporters to an event, like he did last session?

Silver Crusade

The last session, I believe Solstice Scar was reported as part of OutPost. I am a reporter there, but I was added for other reasons, so I don't know about everyone else.


Mosquito Witch

I don’t see it as a reportable event on my organized play screen.

No reason GMs couldn't report their own tables for this one.
Just the backup GMs that really needed him.

As we approach the next transition, it seems we are unlikely to reach the Scattered Kobolds or Surprised Dragons milestones. The Fey Allies bonus is only one Fey Success away, though, so try to finish that up if you can, those of you mid-encounter. Also, a reminder that I am in US Pacific time, and will likely post the transition after my F2F game tomorrow night.


Solstice Maps

This section has suffered in pbp from the encounters beginning with everybody too far away from each other. On a face to face table that closing the gap part can be done very quickly but in pbp it has seemed to take two days just to get them fighting

This ran slow last time too, I sugested at the time that part 1 be cut slightly shorter and an extra day or so here.

The king and queen encounter takes a lot of time in PBP, and virtually everyone wants to do it - seriously who would pass up a chance to meet and talk with them - and in many scenarios you would be punished one way or another for not following that particular and pretty obvious train track. Thus less folk doing the kobold caves, which hurts later on.

Another option would be the final dragon encounter being run faster, as most tables seemed to get through that in moderately quick time.


Fiend series | Shackles

I just reported a Fey success!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

For the fey encounter I just laid everything out, revealing the King and Queen's skill checks, biases and warning them against Diplomacy/Intimidate. Then I told everyone to make 3 skill checks. I would accept their first 2 and reserve the 3rd rolls.

That way, everyone made their rolls and argument in one post and I could resolve it immediately. I did not reveal how many successes were needed unless they reached their goal.

My party didn't succeed with 2 checks per PC, so I used their 3rd rolls to just give them the best possible outcome. I could have asked for the designated leaders but I feared that would take too much time.

The fey encounter took a total of 2 days to resolve and they were off again, hunting kobolds.

I love PbP but back-and-forth conversation takes way too long.

Transition posted. Please move to area N quickly (use a cut-scene to wrap up the current area, if needed). If I missed a table please let me know.

Thanks to a campaign coin she is merely at -11 hp with 12 con.... all hail Desna!

(does a happy dance at the good news)

Does that mean that I'm still your only actual kill?


Remember not to multiply the extra dice from vital strike on a crit...

I feel that part B should have had a "when the dragon dies, the kobolds go "Whelp..." and decide to begin a career as carpenters". My team has killed the dragon and I still have to run the rest of the encounter against two hopelessly outclassed kobold cavaliers.


Mosquito Witch

I am doing the same in my tier, only against regular kobolds using slings!

Hopefully they will kill the last one tonight!

One more day! If you haven't already, you should be soliciting reporting information from your characters. Once you have it, please find your tab on THIS SHEET and fill in your information. Back-up GMs, please fill in your info on the 'Overseer & Backups' tab.


After several rounds of missing, the party turned one dragon and 4 kobolds into 1 cornered kobold. Luckily this is the last day so I'm sure tomorrow I can just say "the surviving kobold surrenders"


Fiend series | Shackles

Redelia, you are still my one and only PbP kill. I have also killed several local players.

Please don't forget to fill in your own information along the top of your tab! I see a few that have player info but no GM info filled in.

Wow! That really makes for a rough game if you are killing off the players!

Core 3-4 Success!

The owl familiar dropped the dragon. :-P

Lots of 11th hour victories; my guys finished off the dragon a couple hours ago :)

No luck here, Dragon was harassing my party from fog, didn't even get to see it :(


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post | League Group | TL;DR Group |

All of my reporting info is entered except for the PFS ID# of one player who has been a bit slow in posting his information; will add it as soon as I hear from them.


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post | League Group | TL;DR Group |

Okay, my reporting should be complete on the spreadsheet!

One last (possibly silly) question - for someone who played OoS (I had a 7th at my 5-6 table) do I calculate their gold by taking the average of the values for the 5-6 and 7-8 subtiers?

I believe so. It should work just like a normal scenario.


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post | League Group | TL;DR Group |

Okay cool, thank you :)

I'm a bit stumped on a faction goal. A player would like to check the box for: 'Rescue a named NPC who is a divine spellcaster with a good-aligned deity or a named outsider with the good subtype. Alternatively, collaborate with the NPC to overcome an obstacle directly related to the PC's success conditions, such as defeating a foe; summoned outsiders do not contribute to this goal, but called ones do if not coerced into service.'

The player was thinking Medda should count. Flavorwise, she should, but it appears that mechanically she is a psychic caster instead of a divine caster. I would like to let the player have this, but I don't see how I can.
