Ready to move on. I prefer a party size of 5, but I could live with 4 as long as we have at least one tanky front liner. Do you prefer 4, is that what the module is written for? Are we staying at 4 because of a temporary player loss?


Emerald Spire slides | Curse of the Riven Sky slides | Murder's Mark Slides |

The module is written for 4 but I don't mind adding another player if you all wish. If so, I'll make a recruitment post.

We are losing a player because Pirate Rob (Otto Boulderspine) has played the other levels (at least up to level 10) and was just jumping in for this one because he had missed it when he played through previously. So, without an addition the party will be: Alchemist, Paladin/Oracle, Paladin, Ranged Bard.

When I played it we had parties of 6 and we steamrolled a lot of it (but we also had some strong optimizers among us). I do think that it will get more challenging as you go deeper.

4 is OK if that iw what you prefer. I just have a soft spot for the number 5 in PBP. To me it seems to work the best. 4 is a bit scary as it doesn't take as much bad luck for a party of 4 to get TPKed.

Also, please don't forget to write in a hex for me? I'm picking up Hex E so we all have a country estate to chill in instead of a in. :)

I very much appreciate the opportunity to fill in my gaps. I'm closing in in all scenarios/modules played for PFS1.

Impressive!

Ok, chronicles are just about done. I only need:

Romulus: PFS #, faction, day job, normal/slow track. I've noted that you want Hex E.

I'll post in the recruitment thread and see if anyone wants to join us. May be a bit thin now due to Gameday.

Edit: just done so.

# 176948-15, Grand Lodge, Still unsure whether i'm suppose to do normal or slow, so just put me down for what i'm suppose to be to keep using this character through all the spire, and Perform (Percussion): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20


Emerald Spire slides | Curse of the Riven Sky slides | Murder's Mark Slides |

I'll put you down for normal track. Either way you are going to be slightly off the expected xp track for this level (which would have been: slow track full rewards: 1.5 xp); instead you'll get normal track partial rewards: 1.0 xp, but it shouldn't matter much over the long haul.

Responses to my post in the Recruitment thread so far:

* a halfling cavalier (beast rider) 4 and his faithful wolf-steed Lady ||| OR ||| fighter (lore warden) 1/investigator (empiricist) 2

* another Alchemist, but they use the Metamorph archetype, which replaces... basically everything with shapeshifting

Any preferences? I'm ok with adding both players if you are all amenable.

5 is still my fav, but I hate to say no to anyone :)

Anyone else with an opinion?

Chronicles are available here. This is the first time I'm sharing chronicles using this method so please let me know if you have any difficulties (or, of course, if there's anything mistaken with your chronicle).

GM Abraham, I think you should decide. I have an opinion but it is vastly trumped by the 'make the GM happy' rule.

Literally not a one of 'em. Metamorph trades out bombs and extracts and mutagens. Then gives you back mutagens at the same level you'd get it anyways. I'm sure there's a reason...

Also, hello again Yanda! We went through... Tome of Righteous Repose together iirc.

In dungeon crawls Shabah usually shows up in this alias, so no worries :-p

Mmm... Do need to update this one actually.

I don't think I've got a lot of purchases or anything though (maybe a Cloak upgrade?), so once you guys are set, I'm happy to get started :-)

Welcome, Shabah!

Also, I think I'm set up. Without a level up, things go quicker. :-) All I did was enchant my (already masterwork) armour and buy a replacement shield. :-)


Emerald Spire slides | Curse of the Riven Sky slides | Murder's Mark Slides |

Yep, I'll post a wrap up from the previous level and get us started on the next one hopefully soon.


Emerald Spire slides | Curse of the Riven Sky slides | Murder's Mark Slides |

For those who may be curious, this was essentially a puzzle level.

The thing you have to do is...:

Remove the 8 doors found throughout the level from their hinges and insert them into the big slots on the Godbox. They are made of a special alloy that doesn't trigger its magnetism. How you are supposed to know this is not at all clear (and when I played it we never came close to figuring it out). Worse, if you do turn off the Godbox, you release its magnetic hold (giving you a bunch of treasure that is currently stuck to it), but you also send the poor troglodytes into a rage, the only solution to which is to murder them. Needless to say, this is probably as controversial (to put it mildly) an adventure as I've ever seen from paizo. The good news is that the rest of the Spire is much more of what you'd traditionally expect from a dungeon crawl.

Godhome has now been reported.


Emerald Spire slides | Curse of the Riven Sky slides | Murder's Mark Slides |

Everyone, please update your information on slides 2 and 3. Shabah, please add a token for yourself on slide 2 and on the map on slide 1, and be sure to add the info for your saves/init/perception on slide 2. Also, if you have a familiar or companion, please add tokens and the same info for them as well.

Although this level is one that is normally recommended for slow tracking, instead I recommend that you do normal track. Assuming no further xp losses as you go along, this should have you on track to remain in tier for the remainder of the Spire. The only exception to this would be if the 1 xp you received for Godhome would cause you to go up a level. You can see the acceptable level tiers for each level on slide 4. Let me know if any of this is unclear. Basically, if you are now at 3.1, 4.1, or 5.1, if you do normal track for this level you should be 4.1, 5.1, or 6.1 at the end of it, which will set you up for the next level, which is tier 4-6.

Same here, no changes on my end with only 1 exp, and i'm saving up for a shiny.

Romulus, when you get a chance please fill in your details on slide 3. It makes filling out the chronicle sheets at the end much easier for me.
