    Q: I reported a success for Mission 6 yesterday using that form you posted. Should I also post it here or somewhere else? I don't think I saw the overseer GM announcement for Mission 6 success...

    It registered, no need to post here. The mission success condition requires more than one table to succeed, though, based on the number of tables playing (3/5 of the total). In this case, the missions won't be 'complete' until we get 17 successes for that mission (some of those will come from ACG as well).

    For now just move your table on to whatever the next mission they want to do is, and when the whole house has completed a mission I'll make an announcement.

    If anyone has a player with a spare lesser restoration (and an aid token), one of my players has been hit with a negative level ( which drops to level 2 in 3-4 subtier) and so would be really grateful.

    Lesser resto doesn't heal negative levels, unfortunately. You need a restoration spell.

    If your group earned the Hard level of the Supply Check prep mission (allowing the quartermasters to set up shop in the tapestry), and the character has 300 gp, they could buy themselves a Soul Stimulant and ignore the effects for 12 hours.

    Cost of removing an energy drain level is 520g by a friendly caster (Restoration plus the 100g material component). Or they can gamble on their reduced Fort save after a day.

    I thought it was 380gp? (4x7x10) + 100

    Anybody need an Aid Token?

    I thought it may be more likely seen here.

    I think you are right. Sorry for the bad math.

    GM Lorenzo - did you end up passing your aid token?

    Just did (to GM chadius). I checked the Aid Token tracking form, but it looks like it might not be up-to-date.

    If I have missed any Aid Token movements, I apologise. I will try to go back and double-check later today.

    I noted your request in the Recruitment tab for labels. The columns are labelled for GMs then each of the aid tokens. Looking in any Aid Token should show where it currently resides (C) and who have had and passed it previously (P). Looking at the GM list will show how many times a GM has had any aid token by the colour of the GM's name. Currently, that is black for having received 0 tokens, and blue for 1 token. As the game continues new colours will appear and the key is below the GM list.

    Please let me know if there is any other confusion or any suggestions for improvement. I want this to be useful for all.

    Edit: just clicked your link and realised it was not my form you were looking at. If you want, try this Aid Token tracking form and see if it works better for you.

    I added column names. Although the RNG shifts anytime a cell is modified. Not sure if that's the intent.

    While I'm thinking of it, I'll mention that when I ran this last (live game some time back, tier 7-8) the Astral Pirates encounter nearly killed one of my characters. The gnome sorcerer there has Phantasmal Killer spells that are likely to kill PCs.

    Almost as in: they used three rerolls (I forget where they all came from) trying to get the party wizard through that spell and he barely succeeded.

    For those running the tier, be aware of it I guess?

    Q: I have not applied any boost related to Mission completion to any token yet. I was under the impression the Overseer GM is the one doing that when the House completes a mission officially. Only token boost I made so far is when one of my players decided to boost a token before we passed it to TOZ. Have I done it wrong?

    ...Well one of us has... 0_0


    Hao Jin Cataclysm (Gameplay|Maps & Slides)

    I'm only asking because I'd be 4 missions behind to catch up on those boosts... :P

    Current status shows no missions complete, so no mission boosts should be in effect.

    Edit: Realized you were talking about your own tables boosts. Once they complete missions, if they meet the requirements listed at the end of the mission they unlock the aid token special boosts for that mission.

    For example, my team has done the Muckmouth and Patchwork Allies missions. They dealt with all three runes in Muckmouth and convinced all three allied groups to work with them, opening the special boost options for Provide Spellcasting and Allied Offensive respectively.


    Hao Jin Cataclysm (Gameplay|Maps & Slides)

    Ok! so those are above and beyond the travelin' / bouncin' around Aid Tokens right? (if so I'll just list those in one of my slides, perhaps alongside the Part 1 boosts)

    Shadow Lodge

    Table Maps | Hao Jin Cataclysm |

    Correct, your tables can try to enhance the boost with those unlocked option or just setting for the normal boost when passing them off.


    Hao Jin Cataclysm (Gameplay|Maps & Slides)

    Ah I see! thanks for the clarification.

    Thanks TOZ. None of the missions are complete, but when those kick off they bring a different benefit.

    Just reported a Muckmouth success. Hopefully that came through right.

    Yep, it did. If you ever want to check you can click over to the "Form Responses 1" tab on the "Current Status" document linked above.
