To qualify for day job do I need a rank in profession?
Also, thanks again for another great run. You do a great job,it's a lot of fun. I would love to join you guys again, I just signed up for the March yesterday at Gen Con so I'd love to do another with you but would prefer the mists, that is if you'll have me.

Seaweed returns to Skyreach and files a report. Then the cleric notes the report in a log with receipt, date, name and accepting officials identification. Seaweed alphabetizes some reports, chono-tizes others, and georganizes even more. Those reports gets filed into their appropriate place in the cabinets, shelves, stacks, archives, or other places with copious notes clearly identifying where and when everything ended up. Usually these notes are in triplicate-though sections SL231-9 through SL27-0 are only duplicated).

Also, while not completely finished, (it's mostly just wrap up), I would like to ask again for some criticism (hopefully constructive). What did you like, or not like? How can I try to improve? What methods I tried worked, or could be done better? Seriously, I's trying to improve, and I'm not going to take anything personal. Though I haven't sent them out just yet, including my new idea for Chronicle Sheets.

I'm going to retract my previous comments about deadliness from Frostfur. The dice gods showed you don't pull punches (without being cruel) :)
Feel free to ask any questions about the scenario you might have. All in all, I think this might be my favorite scenario. The part about the vision, I mad up and tried to customize for each of your characters. It wasn't part of the scenario. None of them had any actual game effects, but I was trying to make it sort of feel like either your character or everyone else was mad, and make it so you couldn't be sure which was true. few times I even gave contradictory visions to different people. As the DM, I really enjoyed it. I know some of the players to me they though it was cool, too, but I can see that being something that others might not like. Was there any issues with that?
Neither where the black eyes, (except for Imrizade), really part of the scnario. Again, except for with Imrizade, none of the other vine/tentacle/tendrils where actually there either. I tried to add them as both flavor and also hoped to both hint at what you where going to see later and give an explanation of what was sort of causing, for example the chimera skeleton to turn. In the scenario, it's just a chimera decoration that uses the stats for a skeleton.
So the basic idea is that Imrizade was an adventurer herself, though not a Pathfinder. Just sort of a solo Indiana Jones type. As a child, she discovered the lower chamber, and kept it a secret. She would come down here and play, and get away from everyone, but once she grew up, she kind of forgot about it.
When she travelled to old Osirion, she discovered the canister a few weeks ago, which was the receptacle of an ancient aberrant sorcerer's ghost, which began to possess her. The soercerer had been studying the portal, (and portals in general) in his life, and had always tried to open it to the Great Beyond, a hellish realm of chaos, madness, and death which he was obsessed with. Eventually he completely controlled Imrizade, and discovered she knew of a portal, but didn't realize what it was, and forced her to go there. No one else really knew of the room, (the entire museum is inside of an ancient magical fortress built by the one of the world's greatest mages of all time, who focused on exploring the planes of existence), and began to open the portal. But Imrizade tried to resist him, and partially kept the portal closed, only allowing some things to get by her. Something huge on the other side answered his call, and sent it's tentacles through to drain her, but couldn't enter itself, hoping that would stop her from resisting and allow him to fully open the portal. The guards and servants sent to check on her finally found the secret rooms below even the basement, but all died. Some the sorcerer found, and raised them as undead guards and servants.
Love the background and explanation, that really makes the story fit nicely, like the detective revealing the clues and guilty part to a crime in a mystery, brings it all together.
I am going to run another game, and you are all in. Evigail also offered to run, and I know another DM and some other players where interested in another game, too, so let me talk with them and form a plan. We can sort of split the groups up slightly and figure out what scenarios work for everyone within different groups, or whatever needs to be done. I think there is a potential for maybe 10-12 total people interested, and if we have 2 DM's, that should work well.
It also kind of helps to build up what I was hoping for in a sort of online PbP PFS group. I know some of you where in the other group I mentioned, too, so I'm not sure on the numbers, for sure. I'll let you know soon, though.
As a personal preference, I really like DMing the earlier scenario, but I can do pretty much any of them. I'm a lot less interested in Season 3 and 4's focus on metaplot or gimmicks, but some of them are really good. Is anyone interested in Severing Ties with a Levels 3-6ish character? Maybe lower, I don't recall. I'm trying to look through the scenarios for which will work well in a PbP medium, so I'm open to suggestions.
The groups sound awesome. I also have a level 1 Inquisitor Undead Hunter available.
For Elwyn, I am one XP away from third level and am hoping to be there through our next adventure for Gen Con starting Aug 15, can't wait
|Grundle Farbon PFS|
Well, Grundle here is 1 XP from 2nd level. My dwarf Phalanx Soldier (who just happens to sell gems and finely cut stones) is 2nd level with 2 more XP needed to get to 3rd.
But to be honest...I am excited to get Grundle to 2nd level. He's going to go Barbarian. Probably a Wild Rager. Character just morphed into this berserker type.
Thanks for the added and specialized fluff Beckett. It is an advantage of PBP that you can take the time to individualize that sort of thing. Putting it in spoilers was fine too, like we had a secret to respond too. If their were conflicting info in them, it was missed however as most people do not look at spoilers not for them.
The tendrils did throw me off though, I missed the skeleton because of that.
I am not sure if you can look at my sessions to see what I have played or GMed.
I have played Severing Ties and can run it, but do not have it. I have run (but not played) Mists of Mwangi and can run it again. Metaplot only matters to me for the current season so my actions can affect the campaign, however with a PBP I don't expect the prestige to make any difference (because of the completion time measured in months). To get
I have a 6.2th level and Seaweed at 2nd. I don't want to lock Galdur up right away, but if I get that next chronicle before we start I can play him level 7. I think I can run one and play one at the same time and am happy to run now play later.
I think choosing from an already existing pool defeats one advantage of PFS PBP. Namely it is an outlet for people who don't have a local game. To that end I hope to recruit a few people for my game based on zip code and proximity to a local game, filling half of the table here first. Just my opinion of course.
Elwyn (and others) how far are you from the nearest local game?
I dinnae have a copy of the UE so agile is out. The extra trident is for when the first one gets thrown. If its not too much trouble I will keep the hide armor, & not buy the +1 breastplate. I will instead buy a +1 darkwood heavy wooden shield (15+150+[10*15]+1000=1315 gp) for a bonus of 1. If it is too much trouble I will save purchases until scenerio's end.
for the chronicle sheet :)
I don't play locally, there are a couple that I know of, but for me its a time issue, can't devote the time in large blocks to much of anything between work, wife and four kids. So PBP it is for me except for Gen Con where I get the weekend to selfishly nerd out 24/7.
|Grundle Farbon PFS|
I'm in the same boat as Elwyn. I know there are PFS locals meeting near me, but kids and work make it so that I can't dedicate a night to gaming.
As far as splitting the party, if you took for instance 2 players from this group, (and me), and I took the others and incorporated them into my game, that would give both of us enough players. It would mostly be about who can play what game, and what we decide to run.
On the other hand, I only have a Level 8 Cleric open for play right now, so I might not even be able to without making another character. So it's cool if I don't play, too.
And to be honest, the chimera, is actually sort of presented as more of a construct. I'll take a bit of the blame there, but here's what the scenario says for DM's
"For Tier 1–2, a stuffed owlbear has come to life. For Tier 3–4, a stuffed chimera with a blue dragon’s head and moth-eaten wings guards the room. For Tier 6–7, the ancient assembled skeleton of a huge tyrant lizard attacks intruders."
with this as the description for players: "The doors open with a grinding creak, revealing a large room filled with monsters of all shapes and sizes. Giant skeletons and stuffed taxidermic monstrosities are frozen in poses of snarling ferocity, while mummified corpses lie in sedate repose in ornately carved sarcophagi. As silent as a tomb, the
air in the hall is stale and musty."
Well see you fit my criteria already. :) I say you three are in if Mists of Mwangi works for you. Beckett you want number four? Then I will call for enough random/new players to finish the table. Whomever is running the other table can fill it out with the other players, if that works for everyone?
|Grundle Farbon PFS|
Yeeeeehawww! Thanks Curaigh! (And I'm still formulating a response the RPGSS board...I just haven't had time to really sit down and think about it yet).
Once again, already did Mists. However, I'd be happy to fill out a table as a contributing character. Nevertheless I would defer to other players playing for credit first.
I've also reported this event, so it should appear now under everyone's sessions. For anyone that played under me with Rise of the Goblin Guild, I just noticed that for some reason it does not appear to be reported. Can you check and see if it is appearing for you?
I'm also going to open up a new discussion thread soon for the next game. I didn't know if Curaigh would like to use it as well, but if so, feel free. That would allow us to see who fits into which game better, but that's up to him.
