YAY! Welcome to the game, hope you will all have fun. I'm playing / have played with most of you, but probably not in this orientation. I am looking forward to a good scenario.

Thank-you for running!

Rudzik just watches from the wall he's currently leaning against. "Everyone here?" he asks gruffly.


I had wanted to run something for Outpost, they said this needed a GM, and I can run one more game. Plus I could use a chronicle to apply to one of my 9-11's.


I was going to post a sort of intro so we could have a week of "Hi, who are you?" before the official start, but... let it suffice to say this adventure will not be allowing for that sort of leisure.

Will there be time for shopping after the briefing, or should we turn up with everything we think we're gonna need, GM ScorchedOne?

@Rudzik, I was going to buy an oil of align weapon for your bow. Are you OK with that?


I would arrive with what you need.

That’s very kind of you to offer, Eadie, but Rudzik is planning to grab another himself (since it’s for his weapon). He’ll also be snagging more of those holy arrows for good measure.

Side note, chaotic good follower of Abadar?

Would you believe it’s a long story? (:

Eadie’s backstory is tied strongly to Abadar. Her mother (who died in childbirth) was a paladin of the Faith. And despite her non-lawful nature, she was dragged along to Temple every holy day by her ultra-lawful Aunt, who would not take ‘no’ for an answer.

She was ‘made’ to work in the Golden Vault. She hated it. She rebelled against the Faith and her Aunt. They fought like cats-and-dogs about it. Then her Aunt died in an accident. Eadie pretended to blame Abadar while deep down she blamed HERSELF.

Eadie tried running away from Abadar and her guilt by joining the Pathfinder Society. On her first mission, Eadie believes Abadar found her again. She thinks Abadar saved the life of one of her dying companions, and so she decided to give Him a second chance.

Does Eadie understand the tenets of the Faith? Is she truly a believer? Does Abadar think of Eadie as one of his flock? Did the dice god save her companion? Possibly … quite possibly not.

But Eadie thinks He did and is very thankful to Him. Is she a pious, credit card-carrying, one-step-removed, money-hungry WORSHIPPER of the Master of the First Vault? Nope.

But does this crazy, lovable, murderous agent of Chaos maintain an unlikely but undeniable LINK with the Celestial Zillionaire of Zillionaires? I think so. And man, it’s been fun to watch it develop ;)

In game terms, she’s a “Reverer” not a “Worshipper” and doesn’t get any mechanical benefits from worshipping Abadar.


Again, that's why it was a side note, thanks for the brief rundown. Yay characters! I feel like Abadar aside from being LN is still kind of a chill bro. He just wants everybody to be in balance.

Oh no worries! Feel free to ask me about my characters anytime ;)

It’s interesting what you say about Abadar being a chilled dude. I met Vic Wertz, who has Abadar as his avatar at paizocon last year (I met Fendel there too!)

Vic was unassuming, chilled and very easy to talk too. From his interactions with customers on the boards you can tell he’s a solid, successful businessman – but the business is about quality and fun first – not greed.

I was always inclined to see him more as "God of the 1%," personally - and anyone well-familiar with both the Nuremberg Trials and Monty Python's "Vocational Guidance Counselor" sketch should understand why I've sometimes been inclined to think that if there truly is a "worst alignment of all", LN is it (I hate how Paizo pegged Thoth as LN - I say as fine a specimen of NG is rare indeed).


I can see that, but honestly I think Abadar would be mad as heck about the 1%. He's not quite to the level of socialism/communism, but he's for fairness.

Fendel is a very chilled family person, with a sense of humor eerily similar to mine ;)

What exactly would it mean for us to sell our souls/emotions/fates/etc???

I'm amazed they're seriously letting us do this in this adventure. I'm almost tempted to give it a whirl. It would be simultaneously 'very Lucija' and 'very non-Lucija' to do....


I can't elaborate too much, but there are mechanical aspects to each sale, and obviously being hell they're not great. They can be negated eventually though. That is all I'm comfortable saying.

So, how much gold does everyone have? Why can't we just pool our money and make the sale?

I have just over 9,000 - but not 10,000 - in raw lucre.

If you count diamond dust I'm sitting at ~10k, but I'm also essentially out of prestige, so that's all potential resurrection fund for now.

If we need to come back and buy the soul that's one thing, but I think pursuing another lead makes sense for now.

Oh, do they all (potentially) lead to the same end? I'd missed that.

Speaking of which, any reason I can't (or shouldn't) buy my 1/scenario Dark Archive-discounted scroll about now?


The leads are completely different. This is one lead. The other leads are other leads.

I've got ~3400 gp, but I'm not sure I want to spend some of it this way.

Maybe Zarta is desperate enough?

I think we should try another lead -- maybe the gnome as Ando said?

I think each is a differrent thread we can follow in order to find out what is going on. We can always come back to the Hag, we have 2 days after all.


Right. I'm just saying that this is the only one that directly relates to the gaining of this soul. The gnome is a separate thing, as is the third bit of information you gleaned.

So, what would happen if I tried to conjure a devil or other native Hellion while here?

Obstacles? Alterations? Risks? Benefits? Hijinx?


No worries for a native hellion here. Also your Thaumaturgic Circle doesn't prevent their entering as I read it, it acts like Magic Circle Against Evil, which means if these were summoned they couldn't enter, but they're on their native plane. They have no issues. I've factored it into the armor classes of affected individuals, but I don't believe it would otherwise impede them.

Who is in the coffee-colored round border north of Fendel?

Also is that a round chasm beneath the flaming pentacle?


It is indeed a chasm beneath the pentacle. The brown border is an erinyes, everything with a border is an erinyes.
