Starfinder Four v. Hardlight Harlequin | 3-09 The Secluded Siege | |

This a thread for discussion of things out-of-character.

Liberty's Edge

male (he/him) Retired PFS VO in MD

what levels are we looking at? I have a barbarian 3 and a bard 3.


Thanks a lot for GMing! Very much looking forward to this adventure!

I would rather go high tier.

Dark Archive

Woo! Looking forward to playing with you folks.

If we are playing up, I have a medium/paladin 3(that does some bard stuff) or a swarm-monger druid 3.

Edit: I also have a ranged-focused brawler 5 that I forgot about. My preference is the paladin, but I'll play whatever works best.

Sovereign Court

I have a ranger 2, otherwise I will have to pre-gen.

I'm okay with either.

If I pre-gen then I am happy to see what everyone else goes with and fill a gap.

Sovereign Court

My ranger is a Sable Company Marine so adventures in Korvosa will, literally, be right up his street.


I was hoping to bring my investigator, who is currently level 2 but I'm willing to play up. I have a level 3 skald I can bring instead if we really need to raise the APL.


Seems like the APL would be around 2.5 so maybe we can play high tier with 4 player adjustment?

What are you thinking of bringing, Noral?

I'd like to bring my ratfolks occultist Remmy along, he hasn't seen the light of day in WAY to long. Remmy is level 4 occultist, so that should put us up, though I can bring a level 5 character if we need.

Edit: Poor guy has been in the drawer so long I had his level wrong, he's actually 5! So that should definitely pull us up.

Hi Matt, Noral here:

I would like to bring my shaman who is still in a scenario but that should finish in a week. He would be level 4 by then.

If Toral's game does not finish until then I will need to check again.

Any suggestions for a pre-gen? I’ve never played an arcanist before?

Looks like if I play a 3 (and everyone else brings what they've talked about), we're at 3.3. If I bring a 5 we're at 3.6. That's either high tier with the 4-player or high tier with no adjustment, right?

The arcanist pre-gen is well-built and fun. I also like the oracle.


Enora is absolutely great!

As you can tell, I've gone for Enora.

GM Valen, would you remove Seldiir Elberion from the list of characters, please?

I have to change the character.

Toral is not ready.

Checking in with Taarik.

If I did my math correctly, then we are playing the higher tier with the four-character adjustments.

Hello GM, did the insect repellent Taarik used last round have any effect? Would affect my action this round. Thanks!!

It would have, if the swarm around the artifact hadn't subsequently been destroyed.

GMs have been asked to start reporting games, including those that have not yet completed. To that end, I will need folks email addresses for reporting purposes. If you do not wish to post here, feel free to PM them to me.

Yikes! Email PM'ed.

The quest assumes that the party will make some sort of report back to Kreighton Shane, whether by missive or in person. I would assume that some sort of report back to the Venture-Captain is customary/expected after every Pathfinder mission.

However, what you wish to include in the report (or if you want to make one at all) is up to the party.

Otherwise, the party has successfully finished the first quest.

The next two quests also start with missives from Kreighton Shane (both are now posted in the Handouts) and the party chooses which to tackle first.

Hmm. Kreighton Shane seems like a pretty trustworthy guy to me, and Garrick would just tell the whole truth, but he's willing to let other people make the report if people feel strongly about it.


Arcanist 4 | HP:27 | AC 13/13/11 | Initiative +2 | Perception +1 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +5 (+7)

Enora is a truth-seeker and would tell the whole truth but punctuate it with lots of questions of her own.

Remmy will report. It's not exactly in his nature to hide things.

I can use lay on hands, but it won't really help if the haunt is already dormant.

Hi guys, I am on vacation starting tomorrow for three weeks so please bot me as I will only be able to post every couple of days. Sorry for any inconvenience caused!


Starfinder Four v. Hardlight Harlequin | 3-09 The Secluded Siege | |

Just a heads up, I am heading out to cub scout camp with my son this Thursday, getting back sometime Sunday. Thus, my last post this week will likely be Wednesday (or early Thursday) and my next will be the following Monday.

We are getting close to the end of the scenario. I anticipate that even with my absence over long weekend, that we will be wrapped up within the next 2 weeks.


Great!! I think I remember what you explained about the event last year! Have fun!!


Starfinder Four v. Hardlight Harlequin | 3-09 The Secluded Siege | |

Off to camp! My next post won't be until Monday, US East Coast Time.

Fimbrik (assuming he is alive in 4719) is easily over 275 years old. Assuming he was in his 20s at the time of the battle in the "vision", he'd be about 300 years old.

Helven Leroung, a human, was already an established Pathfinder and member of the Decemvirate by the time Montlarion Jeggare had died in 4417 AR.

Per the scenario, Zaul Blystone, also a human, was born "approximately 300 years" before the party entered the Thicket of Endless Fall in the year 4719 AR.

Assuming both Helven and Zaul rose to the Decemvirate in their 20s and that neither was more than 50 during the events in the "vision" the party experienced, then the battle in the "vision" occurred between roughly sometime between 4439 and 4447 AR.
