Hello everyone! Thank you all for joining my game. My goal is for each and every one of you to walk away thinking 2 things: 1) Man, that was a lot of fun, I can't wait to do it again; and 2) That DM Bigrin guy is a great GM, I want to play in more of his games :)

Please take a moment to answer these questions about you and your character. They will help us all stay on task and have fun!

Any other special things you need me to note on your chronicle?

I also need you to fill out your alias profile with all the relevant information.

Relevant profile information::

Please put the relevant stat block in your profile, under the Race field. See below for an example of what I am looking for. This is my quick lookup so I don't have to do a full dive into your character when I need to make snap decisions.

Female Ysoki Mystic 1 | SP 6 : HP 8 : RP 5 | EAC 13 : KAC 14 | Fort. +2: Ref. +2 : Will +2 | Init. +2 : Perc. +8 (darkvision)

Also, please put your full character sheet in your profile somehow, whether it is formatted text from HeroLab, PCGen, or another character generator, a link to an online sheet, or raw text. (talk to me if you want to know more about PCGEN, a FREE character creation and management tool).

I have also set up a Discord channel so that we can have time-sensitive discussions (not having to wait until someone checks the boards to answer a question). It isn't mandatory, but Hmm's games have really shown me the utility of having some form of discussion and question answering mechanism outside of the delayed board responses.

Ready? Break!


A clicking noise heralds the arrival of a spherical robot that shuffles into the room on a set of spider-like legs.

"Hello, I am the BotPlay-4000. I have been assigned to help this group move forward as swiftly and smoothly as possible. I have a limited ability for strategic problem solving, so it is to your benefit to provide me a detailed list of possible actions. It is also to your benefit to make use of me as little as possible. My job is done best when I am not necessary at all."

The spherical body spun on its axis, without moving the legs, then the robot skittered away, back to whatever hidey hole it came from.

===========================================================================

I will use BotPlay-4000 under the following circumstances:
It's combat, and 24 hours have passed;
The group needs a skill check from you, and 24 hours have passed;
You tell me that you will be gone for a few days, and ask me to bot you.
I prefer not to bot, but I want the game to keep moving. If I do bot you, it will likely be minimal. I won't use player non-renewable resources except in dire situations.

Second Seekers (Jadnura)

| RP 6/6 | folio boon 1/1 | Ysoki Technomancer 2 | SP 7/10 | HP 12/12 | KAC 15 | EAC 14 | F +0 | R +3 | W +3 | Init +3 | Perc +0 (Darkvision 60 ft.) | Sense Motive +0

That's... a lot of information. I'll do what I can.

Can you access Google Slides? - yes.

Do you have an up-to-date 'bot me' spoiler -- complete with dice expressions? (check out Kastien's botme)
Sure. Move to get a clear shot at an enemy. Preferably within 50 feet and behind cover.
[ dice=Arc Pistol, Static vs EAC]d20 +4[/dice ]
[ dice=Electricity, non-lethal]d6[/dice ]

Will you be willing to bot other characters if I ask you to do so?
Sure. Though they will have to fill in any RP later.

Do you promise to let me know if you get super busy for a few days so we can bot you?
Sure.

Are you comfortable with a 1-2 post a day pace?
Yes.

What's been your favorite SFS Adventure with this character, and why?
None yet. My first 3 XP with this character were from a boon and the only scenario she played was nearly a TPK and the level 2 operative died in 1 hit.

Hi DM Bigrin,

Let me roll through your questions:

Out of Character Questions

Can you access Google Slides?
Yes

Do you have an up-to-date 'bot me' spoiler -- complete with dice expressions? (check out Kastien's botme)
Not yet, but tomorrow I will add them

Will you be willing to bot other characters if I ask you to do so?
Sure.

Do you promise to let me know if you get super busy for a few days so we can bot you?
Yes

Are you comfortable with a 1-2 post a day pace?
Yes. I am in UTC+1 Time-Zone and I can post through the day. Only during weekends, I might not be able to post everyday, it depends if I go on a trip. But I will keep you posted.

What's been your favorite SFS Adventure with this character, and why?
This PC is fairly fresh so I played only Solar Sortie and I loved it. This hero is an Operative with a SPY spec. I envision him as a chameleon. A person with a lot of identities that he swaps when the need arises. All of the personalities exist and have their resemblence of life. I felt that it fitted nicely to that scenario. So I am pumped to try some more.

Do you have an up-to-date 'bot me' spoiler -- complete with dice expressions?
On it! Edit: That should do

Will you be willing to bot other characters if I ask you to do so?
Yes

Do you promise to let me know if you get super busy for a few days so we can bot you?
Can do

Are you comfortable with a 1-2 post a day pace?
Certainly. I can post every day without trouble, usually more. On PFS days (Saturday) and long days at work (variable, 2-3 per week) those 2+ posts will usually be on opposite ends of the day. Pacific time zone, just so you know.

What's been your favorite SFS Adventure with this character, and why?
I played a most enjoyable game of Ashes of Discovery in which Ivan had a lot to teach people. He gave a from-the-heart speech about what not to do when one's god seems to leave them. He played into the locals' ways of stone and go-karts, and his dice were +5 flaming burst. That helped him learn things he probably shouldn't have known, giving credence to his point.

No. I'll get to work on it.

Yes.

Do you promise to let me know if you get super busy for a few days so we can bot you?
Yes

Are you comfortable with a 1-2 post a day pace?
Yes. I can post almost always post at least once each day and night, often 2 or 3 times, even on weekends.

What's been your favorite SFS Adventure with this character, and why?
Into the Unknown. It was an all small characters table. Tchisk earned his ace pilot reputation and bullied Julzkama into cooperating. It was a fun time. Special note should be made to Solar Sortie as well. Tchisk still wears the robe he used as Eagar the Dark of the Abyss Dragons gladiatorial group.

I would also want to do some purchases:

Called fusion to be placed on my semi-auto pistol (120)
Total: 590


Tulgarst, the Dwarven Admittance, in most cases, goes in the Personal Boon slot as a +2 to one attribute. See this SFS 1.1 guide blog post for additional details. I glanced at your build and it doesn't look like you have the +2 in there, and you can retroactively convert the 'new' character option to the boost to an existing character per the 1.1 SFS Guide.

That's what I figured, thanks! I could've sworn I gave myself the +2 when I got the chronicle a second time, but now it doesn't look like it. All the better!

Damn those rolls. 15, 18 and 20. It means that during fights I will be rolling 1's and 2's, but that should be fine

Could be worse. You could have rolled a 4 like Buscador. He's screwed

Sorry I had to break my own rule. I had the misfortune to brick my phone on the very same day (Friday) that someone ran a truck into the fiber junction that serves my neighborhood. No internet all weekend. But, I should be able to post from work, so I'm ready to keep moving. Thanks for your patience.

No worries;) I was wondering if Ambassador is a quiet kind of alien waiting for us to make a more firm stand :D


Hope your internet gets fixed up soon :)

Welcome to combat!

The way I do combat is to set up the initiative tracker, and then let everyone post in blocks (before the monster, after the monster, between the monster groups, etc.). If your block is up in the tracker (bolded) then you should post. Don't worry about posting in order, as that slows everything down. Post as you can and I will merge the actions together in initiative order. If your action would depend on what someone before you in the order, place contingencies in spoilers, like this:

If playerA does this:

I have this action prepared

If playerA does this instead:

I have this other action prepared

Obviously, if it is too complex you can delay, but I will be running combat updates at least once every 24 hours and if you miss your posting block, you lose your action.

Clear as mud?

With that roll you know all the things!

glitch gremlins:

Buscador knows a lot about glitch gremlins. He knows that they are immune to fire, and have resistances to cold and to spells in general. He also knows that they can cast small spells of their own - mostly annoying spells like grease and ghost sound, but also overheat.

"Don't know what to do with the Ambassador reluctancy to eat in public. Should we try to arrange him some private space in the restaurant? Like movable walls? What do you think?"

I read the culture tabs before realizing I cant take 20 on a skill I don't have but none of us made the required check so that isn't PC knowledge.

Oh, I was wondering where that came from. Didn't see such a spoiler in more recent posts.

Crap!

I read through all of the information and you are right. Sorry about that. I also read the spoiler to see if this is where I took it, and it was not. At the beginning of the scenario, I actually read about that race of aliens and this is where I saw this. I need to make notes and read things after the game :(

sorry for messing with a good scenario. My bad :(

Nbd. We just pretend Drun didn't say that and we'll deal with it if the ambassador brings it up.
