Welcome to 1-22 The Protectorate Petition written by Mike Kimmel
Scenario Tags: None - Levels 1-4
The alien copaxis have long inhabited their world in Near Space but only recently petitioned the Pact Wolds for protectorate status. Sent as part of a delegation to review the petition's virtues and validity, the PCs must explore the ancient copaxi ruins and learn about this applicant species' history. Will the PCs decide to vouch for the copaxis, or will the PCs discover something that casts the copaxis' petition into doubt?

Wayfinders

I don't see the need for 3 technomancers, so I'll play this guy.

The usual:

Player Name: philipjcormier
Character Name: Tolmu
SFS#: 55792-702
Faction: Wayfinders
Day job: Profession(counselor): 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (8) + 12 = 20

Any other information needed, please feel free to ask and/or examine character sheet.

Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsbo)

If we are playing tier 1-2, then I only have Speck Zezener, my technomancer who is available.

Player Name: kuey
Character Name: Speck Zezener
SFS#: 215076-705
Faction: Second Seekers (LE)
Day job: profession(lab tech): 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (9) + 14 = 23

Grand Lodge

Hello all, thanks for the interest (and signing up), and I hope to not let you down, and that we have fun (plus some holiday cheer & spirit!).

We thus have 2 technomancers (lvls 2 & 3), a mystic (lvl 1), an envoy (lvl 2), and then:
• a solarian or a blitz soldier (lvls 1 for both)
• an envoy or a solarian (lvls 2 for both)
Choose whatever combo' you want (having wo solarians or two envoys can work fine, so feel free to go with what you want).

Our average level is 1.83 (going from 1 to 3) so we are in Tier 1-2 w. 6 players.

@Pete H. (and any others w. their -701): I imagine you are aware of the Welcome to Starfinder boon, but, if not, the PbP GM Kit link in my signature-line can lead you to it (file number 13).

For all: the Sideshow slideshow link way up on the top to the left leads to the Google Slides where you can put in your info' on page 2 (SFS data, perception & init' bonuses) and your mini on page 3 (the marching order can be determined later, in game, if needed).

You can go Dot the Gameplay thread.

I imagine you all are at least somewhat (if not super-)experienced with PbP, but, please, if anyone needs more info' or help as to how to do anything, please ask.

As I said, I aim for 1/post a day. Just warn if your away for a bit, and no problem about skipping some around XMas & New Year's, but I will bot people if the absence gets a bit long... just to keep the game flowing and not have people getting bored.

Hoping we all enjoy this adventure!

@Speck Ha ha! For about two seconds, I read "Faction: Second Seekers (LE)" as LE = Lawful Evil !!!


My solarian will take till Monday to get finalized, but I’m happy to bring him if the other solarian goes with their soldier. If they don’t, I’ll run with my envoy.

Got that boon already, ‘’tis quite nice!

Grand Lodge

No problem about taking time to finalize the sheets etc., and, as I said, choose what you prefer to play, or what combo' of characters you want (I do not see any balance problem whatever choices are made).

@Tomu: I switched your Percep' & Init' bonus in the spoilers on slide 2 (I think it is correct now, and that they were inverted - sorry if I'm wrong)

Wayfinders

They are correct as listed. Sorry if I put them up wrong.

There are only 4 of us?

Grand Lodge

Pete H. is preparing his 2 characters to see which he goes with, depending on what bigrin42 chooses to play (who has not yet checked in, I imagine he will appear today after the week-end?).
So 5 have checked in.

Yes, sorry my weekend was packed and I really didn't get online at all.

I think I will go with Rastar, my blitz soldier, freeing Pete up to take his solarian if he wants to.

Exo-Guardians

Player Name: bigrin42
Character Name: Rastar
SFS#: 52459-704
Faction: Exo-Guardians
Day Job: Profession (bounty hunter): 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (6) + 6 = 12

Grand Lodge

Question for Rastar: you have +1 Init' w. 17 Dex'?
And you said "Blitz", but you actually are "Hit and Run"?

Exo-Guardians

Oh wow, I guess it shows how much I haven't paid attention to my 2nd PC. Honestly, I haven't even played him yet as he's a bonus credit baby (starts at level 2 with the scoured stars boon and has a skittermander pregen credit added as well).

So... long story short, he's a mystic not a solarian. :P

Anyway, it appears that regardless who I bring I'll be doubling up on another class (which I doubt is any sort of issue). Thus, unless someone has a great argument I'll bring my mystic.

Player Name: Pete H.
Character Name: Hef Sadir
SFS#: 123584-702
Faction: Exo-Guardians
Day Job: None

Grand Lodge

Okay!
All are here...
Hef Sadir can add Init' & Perception bonuses to the pre-prepared spoilers (or tell me what they are).

Exo-Guardians

Added. I'll have my header up today and hopefully my profile too.

Wayfinders

If people would prefer two technomancers instead of two mystics my 1L is also available. I can play either, but to be honest I prefer the technomancer.

Grand Lodge

Play what you prefer I’d say.
I just started the intro’ to get the info’ out but still plenty of time to change and update your sheets etc.

Look, don't try and clear things up. I want to be mysterious and such.

Nah, I was winging it on the Blitz thing. Rastar is very much a hit and run guy. And I'll fix the character stat block.

A dark cloaked figure enters the bar. Eyes of coal and a stare that peels back layers until it sees your soul. Ladies swooning as he passes, his indifference acting as an aphrodisiac. And just as if he were never there, he is gone...

Who was this mysterious stranger you saw for just a glimpse? What is his story and how can you be more like him? One may never know, but what we do know is that he'll never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and desert you, never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye and never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.

Exo-Guardians

Tolmu, I’d support you playing whichever you prefer. About 80% of my decision to play Hef was due to wanting to play him more than my Envoy.

Wayfinders

Thank you, but now that we are dice rolling an encounter I think it's too late.

Grand Lodge

@Tolmu: No problem, just change your character if you want.
Play what is fun for you.
Nothing so important going on yet that you can't.
New rule: when you land, whoever exits is who you'll play for the rest of the game, so you have a little bit left to choose.
If you do, just give us a little description of who you've changed to and we'll say that that's the one that was there since the briefing.

@Laniakea: Happy to see the useful part of the Steward from the get-go! (I've been planning to make a Steward, so this urges me to do so now! (will probably go for the Steward Infiltrator since they just went legal it seems).

Wayfinders

Player Name: philipjcormier
Character Name: Alzandre Dufau
SFS#: 55792-701
Faction: Wayfinders
Day job: profession(archaeologist): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15

This is my Technomancer. I changed the information on the slide, but the day job gold will need to be adjusted, and Tolmu be removed from the active player list.

Alzandre has the Welcome to Starfinder Boon.

Grand Lodge

Fine! Thanks for filling out the slide info' (I changed Day Job Credits - no gold here, only virtual credits on a cred' stick).

To all: for the minis, I have (from left to right)
Numina6 - correct? (1st from left)
Alzandre Dufau (2nd from left)
Speck Zezener (3rd from left)
Hef Sadir - correct? (4th from left)
Laniakea - correct? (5th from left)

so the one that was missing was:
Rastar- correct? (that I added as 6th from left)

I have no idea how to remove Tolmu from the active player list... (is that important?)

Exo-Guardians

It's in the campaign settings, I don't know if it's important though.

I replaced my old mini with the actual Kasatha one I'm using now. I'm guessing the mini's on the far right are at the front of the group, correct?

And I'm 5th from the left.

Dataphiles

Yes thats me on the left

Grand Lodge

Okay, thanks! I had never scrolled down in the campaign settings.
Tolmu is removed... back into cyber oblivion, poor chap!

Thanks for the answers re. the minis
To all: for the minis, I have (from left to right)
Numina6 (1st from left)
Alzandre Dufau (2nd from left)
Speck Zezener (3rd from left)
Laniakea - correct? (5th from left, with the goggles)
Hef Sadir (5th from left)
Rastar (that I added as 6th from left)

Yes, the far right is the front of the group (arrow means where you are walking towards)
But this is just a general thing in case of need, I'll let you place yourselves when important.

Wayfinders

Looks right to me.

opps. wrong character.

This is the right one.

Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsbo)

Now currently 4th from left, but yes, the goggle wearing Abe Sapien.

Wayfinders

Awesome movies

Grand Lodge

Okay, I see who you all are-- sorry, I thought the " goggle wearing Abe Sapien" was a Kasatha (((
Thanks, all good!
