#9-07 Salvation of the Sages PbP (Inactive)

Game Master supervillan

MAPS & HANDOUTS



Hello,
This is the recruitment page for #9-07 Salvation of the Sages PbP in standard mode.

I will play low tier so level 7-9 characters are very welcome.

Scarab Sages of course have priority so this will be a lottery of sorts instead of a first come first served methodology.

Two seats are reserved for Shifty, Nekome if they still want.

Please include the following information in your application:

Player Name:
Character:
Pfs-Id:
Faction:
Track:
Level:
Class:
Anything special we should know about your character?:

Thanks a lot! I know this is a complicated scenario so I’ll do all I can to be fully prepared and want us to have fun and be successful!


Player Name: Merilessa "Meri"
Character: Merilessa "Meri" Ondino
Pfs-Id: # 2367042-2
Faction: Scarab Sages
Track: ????
Level: 4
Class: Druid

This is my very first time doing PFS, and I have no idea what a track is. I'll need some extra guidance being a newbie, and I hope that doesn't make you wince too much! (Note, I currently play in a non-PFS Core-only pbp game elsewhere.)

Meri is a core character, a summoner druid, and I am currently planning a roc companion for her, though I'd be open to something else depending on setting. Note that I need to tweak her a bit, as she's currently set up for level 5. I also need to get all of her stuff added. I saw that there's a way to add that with some coding on the character page, but if you can point me to a template with the raw code, that would be very helpful. If not, I'll muddle my way through it.

Thanks, and let me know if you need anything else from me.


Hello Merilessa, unfortunately this scenario is for characters of at least level 7.

This is a great scenario so you should play it when you are in the right level range.


I don't know if you can answer this, but is there a place where someone who is brand, spanking new to PFS play but not PF can go to get oriented to how all of this works?

I'm trying to download the PFS Roleplaying Guild Beginning Box New Character Guide, and it won't download for me. I'm on a Mac computer running OS X Mojave, but I have the ability to unpack zip files and I can read PDF files, so in theory I should be able to read it once I can download it. For now, I'm going to wait and see if it just needs to go through some kind of processing before they can release it to me. I'll reach out to Paizo support if I continue to be unable to download it.

BUT...is there anything else you can recommend that I can look into?

Thanks.

P.S. Sorry about posting a level 4 character, I thought the 7-9 meant the number of players you are looking for.


Meri you need:

Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide

To plug and play and just get started you can also use a pregen (not recommended for this one as it has a nasty reputation!)

There is also a lot of info to help you get started Here

Grand Lodge

Shifty=Frost

Player Name: Shifty
Character: Frost
Pfs-Id: 41662-8
Faction: GL
Track: Standard
Level: 7
Class: Pally
Anything special we should know about your character?: Aasimar shieldmaiden riding a celestial warhorse - Nordic but nice!

Grand Lodge

Player Name:Blaydsong
Character: Athum
Pfs-Id: 261876-4
Faction: Grand Lodge
Track: Standard
Level: 7/1
Class: Occultist/Living Monolith
Anything special we should know about your character?: Secondary front-line fighter with a penchant for archeological-type missions, to the point where he decided to make the ancient Osirian magic a part of him by bonding a scarab to his forehead and become a Living Monolith. Also possesses the intelligent weapon Slitherbane. Lastly, he is a dwarven-blooded Oread.

I will need to update the character information here, as it's sorely out of date, but that shouldn't take me too long to do.

Scarab Sages

Player Name: Nekome
Character: Agate
Pfs-Id: 244757-1
Faction: Scarab Sages
Track: Normal
Level: 9
Class: Wizard (diviner)
Anything special we should know about your character?: As a diviner, Agate is always able to act in the surprise round (but is still flat-footed until it's her turn). She is also always aware of magical observation, as though she has permanent detect scrying.

Grand Lodge

I just remembered some things about Athum that I missed earlier.

- One of the defining traits of Occultists (which most DMs I know find really annoying) is that he can identify all magic items just by handling it (no roll needed) unless it's artifact-level.

- Also, Athum has a number of Psychic skill unlocks, though they don't get used too often.

- There may be more - he has a number of neat little tricks - but I can't recall them all.

Silver Crusade

Player Name: MadScientistWorking
Character: Peridot
ID: 59724-24
Faction:Silver Crusade
Track: Normal
Level: 9
Class: Alchemist (Chirugeon, Sacramental, Waseland Blightbreaker)
Anything Special?
Healing Bombs means I will be making attack rolls against allies to heal them.
I gain touch injection of healing infusions an unlimited number of times with a swift action delivery.
My normal Mutagen swapped out for one that grants me a domain. My deity is Desna.
I gain a roving discovery I pick at the start of the day that is two levels lower than what I normally pick up at the start of the day.
Healing Extracts automatically count as having the infusion discovery and I can swap them out at any time for another extract.
Also my third level extracts can be used as a Break Enchantment.


Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Player Name: Jeremy
Character: Trokkus
Pfs-Id: 238544-1
Faction: Silver Crusade
Track: Normal
Level: 7
Class: Paladin
Trokkus is a half-orc paladin, but he's not really tough enough to be a front-line fighter. He's more of a second-rank support character.

Dark Archive

Tentatively throwing Ahn in here...

Player Name: Ryan
Character Name: Ahn Silvertongue
Pfs-Id: 36007-3
Faction: Dark Archive
Track: Standard
Level: 9
Class: Paladin 8/LIfe Oracle 1

Ahn is a Gnome Oridin with one life link (and uses shield other) Has no paly spells as he was focused on achieving Ultimate Mercy as quickly as possible. He can raise fallen members as long as he has enough lay-on-hands available. Mostly stays ranged with his bow and Produce Flame, but will sometimes get up in it.

Has not played the other sage scenarios.


That looks like a pretty decent party good to go :)

Frost - Pally 7
Athum - Occ 7/LM 1
Agate - Wizzy 9
Peridot - Alchy 9
Trokus - Pally 7
Ahn - Pally 8/Oracle 1

Good melee, solid casting, and enough healing to keep us trucking, and we all fit in tier.


Looks good! Thanks Shifty!!

I would even allow a seventh player if that player is of the scarab sages faction.

In addition to the usual info needed for reporting and chronicles, would you please post to say if you have played any of the following scenarios with the character you are bringing to this scenario:

#14: The Many Fortunes of Grandmaster Torch
#2–07: Heresy of Man, Part 2: Where Dark Things Sleep
#5–12: Destiny of the Sands, Part 1: A Bitter Bargain
#6–04: Beacon Below
#9–04: The Unseen Inclusion

If you have played 9-04:
Do you have the Debt to the Scarred Sage boon? Please reply in a spoiler.

if you have played 5-12:
Do you have the Reckless Revenge boon? Please reply in a spoiler.

if you have played 6-04:
Do you have the Honoured Acolyte boon? Please reply in a spoiler.

More questions for you all! (There's a lot of background information feeding in to this scenario).

How many Scarab Sage boons do you have? (Obviously if you're not a Scarab Sage the answer should be zero).

How many feats, traits, or class features do you have that impose a code of conduct on you?

Do you speak Draconic? Do you have any other dragon-themed feat, trait, or class feature? (If so how many?)

How many languages do you speak, not counting your racial languages?

-

How many Mendevian Commendation boons do you have?

How many bonus combat feats do you have?

How many mutually exclusive boons do you have? These are boons that result in another boon being crossed off a chronicle - either you made a choice on the chronicle sheet or the party made a choice during the adventure.

How much gold and/or Prestige have you spent in order to heal other Pathfinders?

What colour outfit/robes/armour are you wearing on your expedition?

Silver Crusade

I haven't played any of those scenarios on this character.
1) No scarab sage boons
2) 0
3) Only draconic because I'm a smart half orc.
4) 14. 9 from linguistics. 5 from intelligence.
5) 0 Mendevian crusader boons
6) Does Throw Anything count?
As for the rest I need to double check my chronicles and I'm not home currently. I'll also link a picture to my character. She's the half orc you see in the picture for the Wasteland Blighter in Healer's Handbook.

Scarab Sages

I've played #5-12 with this character.

Spoiler:
I do not have the Reckless Revenge boon.

5 Scarab Sages boons.
No code of conduct.
No Draconic, no dragon-related feats, traits, or class features.
7 languages aside from Common and Dwarven.
No Mendevian boons.
No bonus combat feats.
No mutually exclusive boons.
None, she's offered, but people are always sure they have enough prestige to cover it.
Agate generally wears practical dwarven clothing, so gray/brown. I imagine her cloak of resistance as black with subtle glimmers scattered through it.

Silver Crusade

1) No scarab sage boons
2) 0
3) No draconic .
4) 2, Common And Dwarven
5) No Mendevian crusader boons
6) None, inquisitors don’t get any
7) None that I know of...they are all listed in my profile
8) Just a few taps from a wand of CLW
9) White and yellow, as in the character picture

Sovereign Court

Player Name: RxGus
Character: Ischell
Pfs-Id: 273096-3
Faction: Sovereign Court
Track: Normal
Level: 7
Class: Monk 1/Paladin 6

Reach build. Hippy stoner meets big lebowski...

Dark Archive

Has not played any of the listed scenarios.

How many Scarab Sage boons do you have?: 0

How many feats, traits, or class features do you have that impose a code of conduct on you?: Pally code of conduct... as a reminder respect legitimate authority, act with honor (not lying, not cheating, not using poison, and so forth), help those in need (provided they do not use the help for evil or chaotic ends), and punish those who harm or threaten innocents.

And he worships Ragathiel... chivalry, duty, and vengeance

Do you speak Draconic? No, had not yet picked this level's linguistics languages... pretty sure I wouldn't have picked draconic! :)

How many languages do you speak, not counting your racial languages? 14 in addition to gnome and Common.

How many Mendevian Commendation boons do you have? 0.

How many bonus combat feats do you have? 0.

How many mutually exclusive boons do you have? These are boons that result in another boon being crossed off a chronicle - either you made a choice on the chronicle sheet or the party made a choice during the adventure. 4 I think

How much gold and/or Prestige have you spent in order to heal other Pathfinders? CLW wands, probably a wash with how many times he was healed. Some shield other scrolls, bunch of free Lay o' hands... BUT the biggest would be two breath of lifes from his last pair of First Aid Gloves (Two during the Solstice Scar!) - so 4500+

What colour outfit/robes/armour are you wearing on your expedition? Full plate. Worn steel, he just came off a brutal time with the Siege of Gallowspire. The outside of his great coat/cloak is grey, but inside it is Ragathiel's color, crimson (with gold embellishing), emblazoned on his chest plate is a wing crossed by a sword, but it lacks color.
Click for Images of Ahn

--------------

I'm going to roll this right now because I sometimes forget it... during Destiny of the Sands, Ahn performed an eldritch ritual, resulting in and alien creature sometimes trying to contact him in his sleep...

Contact/Nightmares? - Low bad: 1d100 ⇒ 7
Sigh... the creature tries to contact him, giving him a restless nights sleep, tormented by nightmares!
DC 17 Will Save: 1d20 + 15 ⇒ (6) + 15 = 21
But he is not fatigued or damaged.

We won’t get another scarab sage as it seems. :-)

Jump into the gameplay and please fill out the slides and answer the questions above.

Recruiting closed with seven players.

Sovereign Court

#14: The Many Fortunes of Grandmaster Torch
#2–07: Heresy of Man, Part 2: Where Dark Things Sleep
#5–12: Destiny of the Sands, Part 1: A Bitter Bargain
#6–04: Beacon Below

#9–04: The Unseen Inclusion Played, but not this character

How many Scarab Sage boons do you have? None!

How many feats, traits, or class features do you have that impose a code of conduct on you?

Paladin Code:
Additionally, a paladin’s code requires that she respect legitimate authority, act with honor (not lying, not cheating, not using poison, and so forth), help those in need (provided they do not use the help for evil or chaotic ends), and punish those who harm or threaten innocents.

Irori Paladin Code:
Iroran paladins meditate on self-perfection and train relentlessly, knowing that their example can inspire others to excel. Irori offers no universal paladin code— each paladin in his service creates his own code as part of his spiritual journey, seeing the adherence to such a self-formulated creed as one of the many tests one must face to reach perfection.

Ischell's basic tenants
1. To use acquired influence in the aid of others, not self
2. Encourage each to find, and follow, their unique path to enlightenment

Unchained Monk:
A monk who becomes nonlawful cannot gain new levels as a monk but retains all monk abilities.

Do you speak Draconic? Do you have any other dragon-themed feat, trait, or class feature? (If so how many?) No to both

How many languages do you speak, not counting your racial languages? Just common. Ischell is not the brightest.

How many Mendevian Commendation boons do you have? None

How many bonus combat feats do you have? One (Combat Reflexes, UC Monk)

How many mutually exclusive boons do you have? These are boons that result in another boon being crossed off a chronicle - either you made a choice on the chronicle sheet or the party made a choice during the adventure. [/ooc]None[/ooc]

How much gold and/or Prestige have you spent in order to heal other Pathfinders? 2 PP, 0 gp

What colour outfit/robes/armour are you wearing on your expedition? White cloak of resistance, trimmed in blue with blue metallic flecking throughout the white field- and a hand of Irori on the left breast. He wears no armor, and silk monk robes of blue and silver under his cloak.
