    Hello! I'm your BR Dinketry! Welcome to Korvosa!

    Or rather, welcome to my PACS (oooh shiny and new!) table for the Cards Against Gnomanity DOS event of Curse of the Crimson Throne!

    *sound the trumpet fanfare*

    I'm familiarising myself with all things Harrowed and Cinderish; please check out the new Core rules (as linked in the Campaign Info tab) if you need to do so, as we will be using the new PACS rules for this scenario.

    This is the out-of-character thread, so give it some thought and post an intro here. I'd suggest answering the following questions:

  • What's your name?
  • What character are you playing?
  • What's your experience with play by post (PbP)?
  • What's your experience with PACS (Pathfinder Adventure Card Society)?
  • What's your experience with the adventure card game (organised play notwithstanding)?
  • Where are you, geographically? When do you usually post?

    As this event is part of a convention, we will be somewhat time-limited, so I must ask that you check the thread daily and post promptly. In order to keep things smoothly running, I'm going to suggest that we all use Discord. Click on this link to get to our Discord channel!

    Hey all!

    MauveAvengr here aka Koren the Paladin. Koren is definitely more of a support character so he'll probably follow people around.

    I'm currently playing in another one of BR Dinketry's games as Raz the Paladin, the Mounted Menace. Been quite fun so far. It's my first PbP and my first PACS game (so this will be my second of each). Played through all of the old APs with some friends from college before and had a blast with them!

    I'll read up on the Core rules. I may make some mistakes but I'll try not to!

    Currently living in Oregon (west coast of the States). Fairly regular with my posting and can post throughout the day usually.


    Cogsnap's Deck Manager

    Hi there!

    I'm WilderRedbeard and I'm planning to play Cogsnap from the Alchemist deck (paired with Ultimate Intrigue). That being said, I know there will be some overlap with Varian from CotCT so I am more than willing to switch to another character if it would balance the party better.

    I have been playing online PbP since last year's CaG event and have completed 1 full AP (Season of the Shackles) as well as a couple of events (Retrocon and Gameday VII) since then. I have thoroughly enjoyed playing online and in person and have started collecting as many of the base sets and character decks as my budget will allow.

    I am located in Southern Ontario, Canada (EST) and can post fairly regurlarly any time during the day on weekdays. Weekends I am able to post at least once per day but usually less frequently than during the week.

    I have not used Discord for PbP yet (or really much at all) but am interested in finding out how it works. I'm looking forward to playing with you all!


    Radovan's Deck Handler

    As discussed in the Discord chat, I will be switching from Cogsnap to Radovan. I will send a pic of my class deck box to MorkXII as soon as I can.


    Greetings everyone. I'm Katlyn99 and I will be playing Damiel (S&S) with the UE deck added on. I haven't played any PBP before. Went a little crazy and signed up for three tables for this convention though.
    I've played PACG since it first came out and PACS since it launched. Even so, I still manage to forget things or confuse rules so please let me know if I make a mistake. :) I've been a BR at many many local games. I am in Idaho (MDT) and work from home so I should be able to post pretty regularly during the weekdays. Weekends vary though I will be able to post at lest once a day.

    I've used Discord for years for video games.

    Feel free to give us a character intro in the Gameplay thread, my peoples!


    STR d8 (Melee +2) | DEX d8 (Acrobatics +2, Stealth +2) | CON d8 | INT d8 (Craft +1) | WIS d6 | CHA d4 Zadim Deck Handler

    I'm ajpopp, playing Zadim the Slayer, the Shadow of Sarenrae. I'll be using the Inquisitor deck (as per the adventure reward) and Ultimate Equipment.

    I've played all four of the original PACG with my family and we just finished the Dragon's Demand. I am playing a PbP with Dinketry as BR and MauveAvengr and Sonor as players.

    I've used Discord for an online game of 5e and for Dinketry's Season of Plundered Tombs.


    Hey

    I'll be playing Zarlova. I'm Salim(Sonor) from Dinketry's Season of plundered tombs as well. I have mainly played the mobile game before, and I'm still learning a lot about this game as well.

    Alrighty!

    Things to do:

    1.) Tell me how/if you want to spend your hero point. You can spend this for any feat - skill, power, or card feat. Or you could keep it, but once you decide to not spend it now, you cannot spend it for a feat in the future.

    2.) Roll for your deck upgrade choice. I prefer a weighted preference list of d1000 rolls for any deck upgrade desires, and we can sort it out via a combination of diplomatic negotiation and dice rolls to back it up. Use the formulation below:

    BR's Fake Character wrote:


    1.) Blessing 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 978
    2.) Weapon 2: 1d1000 ⇒ 825
    3.) Weapon 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 503
    4.) Ally 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 80

    3.) Remind me who is BRAND NEW to PbP! I think Katlynn99 (Damiel) is the only who is brand new. You get a cool boon!

    Damiel's Cool New Welcome to PACS PbP Boon:
    Society Initiate: You may only assign this reward to the first PFSACG character that you create. At the end of a scenario, if your character is dead, you may cross this reward off; your character is no longer dead. If you have a role card, you may instead cross this reward off to gain a card feat.

    4.) Speaking of Katlynn99 (Damiel), we have been gifted a bonus boon from their treasure trove! This is open to all other players at the table! I have decided a unique way to reward this boon - each player who wishes to try their luck needs to roll a d12 and a d20, then multiply the two together. the lowest roll wins! This is for all you gutter-ball dice rollers out there! Show us your worst rolls and win a boon! What boon, you might ask?

    Friend in the Potables Business Boon:
    It's a funny story. You were down at the Yellow Cloak Tavern, minding your own business, and you fell chatting with this woman sitting alone at the bar. One thing led to another, nobody went to jail, the otyugh was unharmed, and she ended up owing you a favor or two. This reward can be used up to three times, in the following two ways.
    1.) Cross off one use of this reward and bury a card from your hand to add an item of your choice from the box that has the Alchemical trait to your hand.
    2.) Cross off two uses of this reward and reveal a card from your hand to add an item of your choice from the box that has the Alchemical trait to your hand.

    5.) And if you thought your trip to Boon-Town was done, then you'd be wrong! This is a convention game and as such, there's a potential boon to be had....but we don't have the info just yet. Nevertheless, I'll have everyone roll a d20 and then I'll sort it out once prize support has been clarified for our convention.

    6.) Lastly, for the next scenario, let me know if your character is going to be making use of Zellara's Harrow Deck as a loot item (swapping it out for a different item in your deck).

    I think that's all for now.

    -BR Dink


    Deck Handler

    1. Hero point not spent. (Always good to have a way to rez yourself....)
    2.
    Item 1 1d1000 ⇒ 258
    Item 0 1d1000 ⇒ 616
    Weapon 1 1d1000 ⇒ 934
    Spell 1 1d1000 ⇒ 500

    5. Bonus Boon

    6. I am going to duck out of the game here. It was a pleasure gaming with you all!


    Radovan's Deck Handler

    Scenario 1-X Reward:
    Radovan might be interested in the loot item. If there's another character that could make better use of it he's willing to differ to them.

    Character Advancement:
    Hero Point will be spent on a Power Feat:
    "At the start of the scenario, display any 1 devil form ( [ X ] or 2 devil forms)."

    Deck Upgrades:
    Blessing 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 903 Blessing of Kofusachi
    Ally 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 487 Rodrick
    Item B: 1d1000 ⇒ 148 Staff of Minor Healing
    Ally 0: 1d1000 ⇒ 672 Zae

    Bonus Boon:
    Thanks for the generous donation, Katlynn99!
    Boon Roll: 1d12 + 1d20 ⇒ (9) + (17) = 26 9 x 17 = 153 Welp, that's not likely to be the lowest roll

    Convention Boon:
    Boon-Town Roll: 1d20 ⇒ 14


    STR d8 (Melee +2) | DEX d8 (Acrobatics +2, Stealth +2) | CON d8 | INT d8 (Craft +1) | WIS d6 | CHA d4 Zadim Deck Handler

    1. I will spend the Hero Point on a Power feat, to upgrade from "discard" a weapon to add my Stealth skill to a combat check, to "recharge" a weapon to...

    2. My preferences for upgrades:
    1st choice = Item 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 168
    2nd choice = Blessing 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 181
    3rd choice = Ally 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 684
    4th choice = Item 0: 1d1000 ⇒ 430

    3. I'm not brand new to PbP.

    4. The golf score roll:
    Friend in the Potables Business Boon Roll: 1d12 + 1d20 ⇒ (5) + (9) = 14 5x9=45

    5. Boon-town Boon: 1d20 ⇒ 13

    6. I am not interested in Zellara's Harrow Deck.


    STR d8 (melee+2) | DEX d4 | CON d6 (fortitude+2) | INT d6 | WIS d10 | CHA d8 (divine+3) Deck Handler

    1) Koren will spend a hero point on the following: You may discard the top card of your deck to add 1d6 (☐+1) to any check by another character at your location. If that card is an armor (☑ or a blessing), you may recharge it instead of discarding it.

    2) Here are Koren's upgrade preferences:

    a) Spell 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 426 Stoneskin
    b) Ally 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 798 Surgeon
    c) Blessing 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 314 Blessing of Shax
    d) Blessing 0: 1d1000 ⇒ 573 Blessing of Iomedae

    3) Not new to PbP

    4) I like boons.
    Boons!: 1d12 ⇒ 11d20 ⇒ 12 1x12 = 12

    5) Mystery boons? Even better!
    Mystery Boon: 1d20 ⇒ 19

    6) Koren isn't very interested in the loot item. But will take it if no one else wants it.


    1)Zarlova will keep the hero point for now.

    2)Upgrades:

    1st Choice: Spell 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 922
    2st Choice: Spell B: 1d1000 ⇒ 850

    3)

    No, not new anymore :(

    4)
    okay, I'll try
    1d12 ⇒ 5 x 1d20 ⇒ 14
    Koren has better score than i do for sure.

    5)
    yay, mystery boon!

    Mystery boon: 1d20 ⇒ 9

    Just waiting on Radovan's desires and rolls.


    I'll use the hero point on my first power feat, letting me draw some cards at the start of every turn :)

    Spell 0: 1d1000 ⇒ 736
    Ally 1: 1d1000 ⇒ 409

    Does not compute. Please verify.


    Oh also, I'm not going to roll the 1d12 for the Friend in the potables business reward, I'd rather one of the other players gets it. :)

    Our winner of the "Friend in the Potables Business" boon is Koren! Congratulations, Koren! I believe I have your email, so I will send that off to you straight-away. You can apply that to any character, including this one!

    We will wave good-bye to Damiel for now, but I'm prepping for the next scenario. It should be up shortly!

  • Zarlova: 1 hero pt; ?????; card upgrade: Item 0

    Zarlova, you posted as Salim, but you also suggested that you'd take a second Skill feat. You're not allowed to take more specific feats (i.e. Skill, Card, Power) than Tiers you have unless it was a specific scenario/adventure reward (as seen in older adventures). In other words, you cannot spend your Hero Point for a Skill feat. What would you like to do instead?
