A tall Osiriani man strides into the room, dressed in flowing robes with a longbow over one shoulder, and a satchel at his hip.
Greetings to all, I am Tothek. I am ready to serve once again.
He sits down, and with a wave of his fingers, brings a a tray of dates and a cup of tea floating over from the nearest table.

I’ve played at least two other sections. I’ll try to look them up tomorrow while not cooking.
I've never played a PF module. How long would a single part run for? (Alternatively, how many XP does a section contain, as a proxy for length?)
Each section of Thornkeep is worth 3 xp, which is pretty typical for a shorter module (e.g., Godsmouth Heresy, From Shore to Sea, etc.). Some modules (e.g. Dragon's Demand, Plunder & Peril, etc.) have sanctioned content that's worth multiple 3 xp chronicles. They also can be run in campaign mode, with each player receiving those chronicles once the sanctioned parts have been completed.
It'll vary somewhat depending on the speed of the GM and the group, but yes, most modules will typically run much longer than a standard scenario. My experience playing modules via PbP is limited but one took about 4 months (Masks of the Living God) and another took about 10 months (the entirety of Daughters of Fury, but we did a lot of RP too).

Nothing original or revolutionary, Watery Soup, but here are some tried-and-true gameplay expediters to consider:
For a dungeon crawl like Thornkeep, the table can really expedite play by developing some SOPs for room entry and clearance.
Skill Check Spoilers
The GM can help keep a good pace by making liberal use of spoilers for skill checks that PCs can open if their roll exceeds the DC.
Pre-formatted Saving Throws
If there are a lot of saving throws for traps and other effects, the table could consider having the GM use pre-formatted text for saves, so you're not waiting for a half dozen folks to post their individual rolls, eating up a typical day's worth of posts.

And don't forget botting spoilers for combat! Everyone needs those!
No they don't. They just need to play.
The GM is there giving the group a whole world full of people after all. The least a player can do is do the thing they signed specifically up to do and play their own character.
Aside from serious real life interruptions of course, because life happens.
|Bahram al-Urgug "Jack"|
Bahram, a first level archaeologist, is looking for his next mission.
#5–01: The Glass River Rescue
#9-01: The Cost of Enlightenment
He carries a great axe, but prefers to solve things through sleuthing and diplomacy. It rarely works out that way, however. I'm rather new to pfs, so may need a pointer or two on the finer points of rules for before or after a game. Also, this is for PF1.
Eranahu is a first level Ilsurian Archer (ranger) who is looking for his next great adventure! He is currently trained as a ranger, but his on his way to priesthood through his devotion to Erastil. He is a fairly carefree fellow who gets along with nearly anyone. The only individual he has not been able to get along with and will not work with, is Bahram,
mostly due to the fact that they are run by the same player.
Down the Verdant Path
If you list a few specific scenarios you're interested in, you can sometimes get a GM who enjoys one of them and/or has them already prepped and ready to go to volunteer. That's how I end up GMing half or more of my games. ;-)
I'm at capacity right now, but you might be able to catch someone else.
I'm bumping this to reiterate. I could be that "someone else".
Thistledown, list the 3-7 and 5-9 scenarios you're most interested in (my most advanced character is 5th level and honestly unlikely to reach 7th so 7-11 scenarios are going to be low on my interest list).
We've played live together so you know what scenarios are common in the area. My first choice would be a scenario that I've already played. Second choice would be a scenario that I have no interest in playing.
I have many games wrapping up in January.
Ok. Rather large list now that all those extra replays dropped. (Every one of these is burning a replay)

Alternatively, you can apply it to your 1st level character and not benefit from it / hold it in reserve until Level 7. Then your character will get full gold + boons (instead of 500gp & no boons).

Hello all! We are looking for one to two more people to step in for a group trying to complete a run through the Season 0 scenarios, currently around tiers 6-7 at the moment. The group also is planning on mixing in content from Dragon's Demand as well. The group is currently a cavalier, alchemist, and a life oracle; looking for another melee character and potentially an arcane caster/expert.
If interested, please check out our Discussion Thread or send me a message for more information!

@GMAndewW, I would be in at a later time. Right now, both of my Seekers are in games. The Archivist in Ruby Phoenix Tournament is near the end I think (in the semi-finals). Maybe another month? My cavalier is near the end of Passing the Torch 1, but will do Part 2 after that.
I nave a level 12 magus that is up for it.
