[pfs] Words of the Ancients (Inactive)

Game Master Matthais777


Hey everyone! I'm recruiting for another lovely high tier scenario! Words of the Ancients is a 7-11, and as usual, I'll take the first 6 recruits to sign up!

After countless divinations and the efforts of undercover agents throughout Varisia, the Pathfinder Society has discovered the location of the last component needed to awaken a sleeping runelord. In a mad dash to beat the cult of Lissala to this ancient Thassilonian ruin, the Pathfinders must do whatever it takes to ensure they and not the evil cultists acquire the power within. But the arcane components are not unguarded, and even after 10,000 years, the cost of ensuring the safety of the region could be higher than the veteran adventurers are prepared or willing to pay.

I have several options depending on subtier and party composition.

Unchained Monk/Sorcerer/Dragon Disciple 10
Swashbuckler/Ranger/Vigilante 9
Hunter/Fighter 9
Unchained Barbarian/Druid 8
Fighter/Inquisitor 8

Sovereign Court

I'd also like to sign up and have a few options.

Verdant Sorcerer 11 (battlefield control focus)
Tripping focused Flowing Monk (8-9)
Evangelist Cleric 10 (less healing more buffing)
Gnome Battle Ladder Warpriest 8 (twf and slow as all get out)

I would be interested, I have a lot of character options between 8 and 10.

I have run and played this previously so would need to burn a GM star on it. If you prefer to take someone who isnt replaying then obviously that would be fine.

Hi, I could jump in with a pregen level 7 as I have no character in tier but if you would rather like to take real characters that is of course understandable!

Sovereign Court

I only have one option open, my level 8 knifemaster rogue takkit shinrou. If it's still open, I'd love to play

We still have spaces open. :)

Enora, I won't say no to a pregen so long as you keep in mind that anything that happens to the pregen (Such as horrible death) happens to your character, and people have a nasty habit of dying horrible deaths in these higher level games.

If your cool with that, then I see no reason why you can't play as a pregen.

Liberty's Edge

Looks like low-tier might be the direction we're heading. Both my level 8 PCs are front-liners with out of combat healing capabilities.

The barbarian/druid probably does more damage than the fighter/inquisitor, but the fighter/inquisitor has more useful knowledge skills.

Sovereign Court

Takkit can lay down some decent damage. He went head to head with a Remorhazz that killed two other party members and killed it on his own. It was either him take it one on one and hope to kill it, or lose both the healer and the caster as it had already taken out both our frontliners. It was a brutal battle.

That being said, please don't make me do that again. I was very worried about his well being for the entire duration of the fight.

Sovereign Court

Sadly it looks like I'm going to have to take my hat out of this ring. I already played this one. Sorry! I should have paid more attention.

Enora will definitely not die!! ;-)

I will join you!

But just in case - let me readjust the PFS number and I would use the chronicle sheet to apply it a first level character.

GM, any idea for a start date? I know with the boards being on the fritz lately everything is chaotic, I'm just trying to make sure I don't end up with a ton of games all at the same time. :)

@Takkit, my plan is to start as soon as we have our six. Right now, our crew is sitting at-


Since Knight of Rust is bowing out, we need 2 more players before we start.

Sovereign Court

ok, awesome. that works for me.

GM, can you send us a PM with your campaign link when you want to start? That would be great!

I am looking forward to this!

I would like to join this one. I have several characters available, need to check at home.

I see we are aiming for low tier?

Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I have the following characters available:

Toctep: lvl 7 draconic disciple: deals massive damage and eats that as well because he has next to no AC.
Deaglan: lvl 10 melee cleric
Eolowyn: lvl 10 archer

Between level 7 and 9 I can provide:

Psychic 7
Alchemist 7
Druid 8
Sorcerer 8
Inquisitor 9
Magus 9
Occultist 9
Alchemist 9

With Magabeus, we'll have 5 players. If you guys wanna go ahead and get started, by majority vote we'll go, but otherwise I'd like to wait for a 6th to give you guys your best chances.

Liberty's Edge

Recruitment has been open for almost a week at this point. How long do you want to wait for a 6th?

Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I am good to go. For the 5 of us I will pick Deaglan given that season 4 is rather lethal and we do not get the 4player adjustment.

I might have to update his profile, will doublecheck later today.

Sovereign Court

Glad you mentioned that, Magabeus. I still have to apply Takkit's last chronicle sheet for his money and all.

I would rather like to wait for a 6th player! ;-)

5 players is really the worst number.

I would rather wait a little bit for a 6th. Maybe until the weekend?

Are you all playing up or down?

Liberty's Edge

A bit unclear at the moment.

I think we have a 7th, 8th, and 10th settled. I can play 8, 9, or 10, and andreww 7, 8, or 9.

So our APL is anywhere from 8 to 8.8. We'll either be 7-8 or 10-11 (4-player).

Dark Archive

I could offer this fine fellow, who will undoubtedly offend, bother and bewitch you.

Scarab Sages

I would be using a replay, so priority should go to others. Also, I'd prefer playing higher tier.

Liberty's Edge

With Minmaximus we have:

Arcanist 7
Wizard 8
Rogue 8
Cleric 10

With 6 players we will be able to play down if our total levels are 50 or less.

So that leaves 17 levels between andreww and I.

Andreww, do you have a preference?

Is Takkit level 8 or 9? The profile says 8, but it also says 24 xp which would be level 9.

Liberty's Edge

Can I apply with a level 9 monk? I'm at work right now but I can give all relevant info later tonight.

Sovereign Court

It would appear his is 9. I have to apply my sheet from To Scale a Dragon to his stats as well as purchases. I haven't used this guy in a while.

Liberty's Edge

zer0darkfire, I think we might be full at this point, but I'll have to have the GM confirm that.

Even if Takkit is 9th, we still have 17 levels between myself and andreww before we are forced the high tier (I forgot that if we are exactly 8.5 we can choose round down and play 7-8 still, it's only after that we are forced to round up and play up.)

Once andreww chooses a PC I will choose which ever one keeps us playing low subtier.

Liberty's Edge

Ok well feel free to PM me if you need a player then

I would be GM star relaying so happy to sit oout in favour of zer0darkfire.

Liberty's Edge

So levels appear to be 10, 9, 9, 8, 7 that means I think I need to play one of my level 8 PCs to keep us from bumping to higher subtier.

APL: 10 + 9 + 9 + 8 + 8 + 7 = 51/6 = 8.5.

I'll probably go with my barbarian/druid.

Liberty's Edge

I'm here, thanks AndrewW!

Okay, so here is the crew I have.


If Zerodarkfire is still interested, and Andreww is willing to step out, then he'll be our sixth, if not it'll be andrew. :)

I'll have the threads setup before days end, then it's just waiting for check ins to get started!
