Welp, Guess that kind of explains it. Someone hid an easter egg in the coding.


Oh children... do you not know? Much like if I post in a public channel and not a gaming one, my secret identity gets exposed.

So, Sahess has one spell of each level. I can do Shield, Long Arm / Mirror Image, and Monstrous Physique. Should I do any/all of these?


Male Human (Nerd) 15 Shadowcaster Wizard

Sorry about the bow thing, ignore it. I missed that line entirely.

I'll pick out my pre fight buffs when I get home in a couple hours. I'm not sure what manner of shenanigans we'll encounter in the fight after this, or even if there is one after this. My gut says "no" to the idea of more encounters without a rest, but then I remember that we got ambushed by cheating archers and two iron golems in close quarters and I just don't know how bad the meat grinder is. I'd say either the shield or the mirror image, but not both, and monstrous physique if you feel it would be valuable enough to go in with instead of breaking engagement to cast it later.


| Signal of Screams | Moonscar | Strange Aeons |

(They were stone golems)


Male Human (Nerd) 15 Shadowcaster Wizard

I was tired and my point stands: any golem is bad when it appears out of nowhere in your face. Whoever wrote that we had to fight two of them in a killbox was evil.


| Signal of Screams | Moonscar | Strange Aeons |

And purple scarlet worms! Don’t forget about those!

Yeah. Again, if it weren't for playing Sahess, tank of tanks, that fight is easily TPK territory.


Male Human (Nerd) 15 Shadowcaster Wizard

Also, something that gave me a chuckle. A Venture Captain let all those people and two stone golems, who are not subtle at all infiltrate the lodge... and we're the suspected traitors.

It's not like you can turn golems invisible! They're Spell Immune! You can't teleport them, you can't turn them invisible, you can't do anything but make them walk.

Oh we'll let the horribly lax security measures be worried about at another time. They'll be hearing from my attorney, and I get mine out of Cheliax.


| Signal of Screams | Moonscar | Strange Aeons |

In Eliza’s defense, most of the things that go into the maze when they’re not supposed to don’t come back out (because of Condria), and the golems were inside of worms burrowing underground until they were needed, so she couldn’t necessarily detect those guys easily. Plus the Raven’s crew has been planning this for a while, so they were able to figure out the Lodge’s weaknesses before swooping in at its most vulnerable. PLUS Eliza is trying to bring up the Woodsedge Lodge from its practical abandonment years ago as well as keeping a low enough profile to not be a target of the Revolution while still being a prominent member of an organization that does not necessarily have a good standing with the Red Revolution; Eliza can’t constantly be watching every square inch of a 90,000 square foot hedge maze (the scenario never actually says whether the hedge maze itself has more than one entryway in the hedge).

I know I’m playing devil’s advocate here—very poorly—but this is one of those things about this series that didn’t age well: it assumes that you all are on very good standing with Adril Hestram, whom they suspect of traitorous actions, and suspect you all of being his accomplices. Because it’s Adril, a guy none of you have heard of, then the effect really doesn’t hit home. Back when it was released, Adril was a prominent figure who acted as a mentor and friend to many up-and-coming Pathfinders whom he’s known since their Confirmation—and has had that same amount of time to corrupt and persuade into joining him as an agent in his traitorous actions. Imagine if, instead of Hestram, it was Marcos Farabellus or Ambrus Valsin—mentors that have known your characters in-game for years, years to mold you into the perfect agents for their nefarious plots. The fact that Hestram faded into obscurity following Eyes of the Ten just made the emotional connections players have to these NPCs become less and less as the years went on.

I’m not saying it’s explained well or written well, I’m just saying that there’s another side to these events that you guys are just kinda glossing over.

Sorry, went off on a weird rant there.

I mean, it would be extremely awkward if Adril didn't fade into obscurity following his death here. Worst case, everyone would know his name (like a certain Grandmaster Torch) in infamy, which would do even worse things for the emotional impact of this scenario.

In other news, pretty much out of buffs at this point. 1 2nd lvl spell and 1 4th lvl spell left - so be prepared for lots of grease or other 1st lvl fun stuff.

Alternatively, would we like to try out Arnaut's Fascinating performance (DC 25)?

I'm fairly indifferent. Thank goodness for that talisman thingy or I'd be about out of rage, which is my resource. Spells are great, but aside from Shield they aren't necessary to my existence. Rage does fabulous things for me.

A hearty apology. I appear to have come down with the flu (or a REALLY bad cold). It didn't give me any warning, so I was bedridden the entire weekend, there. Took all my effort to finish my assignments, so didn't have time to post here.

Sahess, would you like to come with Arnaut to have an up-close and personal introduction to our fireball-happy friend? He's got a scroll of dimension door that could put the two of them next to her, but he can't pull it out, move to Sahess, and cast it in the same round. If she can take a 5 ft step towards him though, he can also take a 5 ft step and use his standard action to cast the spell this round.

Zhu is welcome to come along as well, though she might not wish to be so close to Cale at this time (she'd have to use a move action to get next to Arnaut and then ready an action to attack someone on the other side of the teleport).

Thoughts?

Hm... I need to throw up a shield or he's just gonna magic missile me down, but otherwise, I can handle that.

Kicking myself for not bringing Cale's body now. I could just snap my fingers and poof, no more sorcerer.

EDIT: WAIT! DISPEL MAGIC!

You automatically succeed on the dispel check versus yourself!

Would that work?

Is it too late to for me to burn Inspiration on that saving throw?


| Signal of Screams | Moonscar | Strange Aeons |

I’ll allow it; I couldn’t exactly give you the chance because of how I was doing the saves, and the option should always be there.

If anyone has a graceful solution to such situations (or Misfortune revelation, Adaptable luck, etc) please share! I like having GMs roll saving throws to keep things moving, but don’t quite know how to work “extra” things like that in. But waiting for players to roll their own saves can be frustrating in both sides of the GM screen and kills momentum.


Male Human (Nerd) 15 Shadowcaster Wizard

Honestly, the smoothest gameplay is to allow the resolution of immediate and other out of turn actions like this, but there is a (completely valid) complaint to be had in that it makes things like Inspiration, Opportune Parry and Riposte, Saving Finale, and Bestow Luck far more potent because of how much easier it is to pick and choose when to use them.

My parents will be in town this weekend, so a lot of my time will be spent with them. On top of that, I'll be GMing the entirety of the Ruby Phoenix Tournament from 8am to 10pm Friday at a local con, so I will very likely be unable to post Friday, and the possibility of posting Saturday, Sunday, and Monday are still up in the air. In my Player games, please bot where necessary. In my GM games, thank you for your continued patience. I REALLY hope everything goes back to normal come Tuesday.

Unless anyone has any objections, Arnaut would certainly try to free the pheonix. Liberty’s Edge and whatnot. Especially since she’s stuck in this cave (wherever this is).

I am going to be at an IRL con tomorrow all day (Same one that Jordan was talking about, funnily enough), so I may not get around to posting for a while.

Regarding the... excited... crowd, Arnaut has another use of calm emotions with a decent DC. It can't hit everyone, but it can hit most of the crowd. Shall we give it a try?


Male Human (Nerd) 15 Shadowcaster Wizard

Yes. That would be immensely helpful, especially since... bloody faction missions.

Hope you had fun! I'm honestly scared of my own faction mission. Post-Disappearing Zarta would totally not give me a suicide mission for the glory of Chileax. PRE-Disappearing... outlook not so good.

Well, guys, they're distracted.

And remember, that wasn’t an evil act because....the scenario expected you to do it and evil acts aren’t allowed in PFS? Honestly, if this were my home group that would 100% be an evil act, but shrug.

Just to clarify, I'm not mad about the whole thing. It's a decent enough plot and it made more sense when it actually happened. Zhu Li, on the other hand... she's a bit put out.

So, faction missions.

In light of the absolutely massive fustercluck that was Beliac showing up, what do we think of comparing notes on them in the future?

Even if we don't, my local group used to treat these things like a game of Everyone is John and flip them over at the end of the game. Mine being "you'll know when to read this scroll. Read it."

Mine unfortunately usually come with a heaping helping of "don't let anyone else see you doing the thing", so I can tell you after the fact - unless the GM beats me to the punch! ;-).

I'm unfortunately not going to be able to post today, owing to having passed the hell out up until it was time to get ready for work. I'll try to have something up early tomorrow, but definitely tomorrow afternoon at latest.


| Signal of Screams | Moonscar | Strange Aeons |

I suppose I was a bit vague, so I’ll say it now: since this is a series of scenarios, I expect you all to list what you bought “between scenarios” at least somewhere so that I am aware of what it is you bought. I’m not normally like this when it comes to buying stuff during the time between scenarios, but in when it comes to a series gone through consecutively then I expect to know what new stuff y’all have. That’s why I’ve been shoving the “time to buy gear” thing down your throats.
