Castinus here, standing alongside (but generally slightly behind) Kal'ryon, as normal.

If you guys can deal with botting me for about a week, I'm in. I don't have solid dates for my trip, but I'm almost certain it'll come during Gameday 8. Maybe we'll be finished by the time I go though.


Hao Jin Cataclysm Games I've Played (Session Tracker)

And Castinus keeps his streak going, too!

Sir Hayden, it's been my experience the special finishes about a month earlier than the end of a Gameday so probably around Halloween.

That being said, if you will set up a Bot Me scenario in your character write up, we can set up a process for botting you. Either way, you're welcome to join and we're glad to have you along for another run.


I would love to join but this would be my first PbP. Is that okay with everyone? I expect there will be a lot of questions and at least a few mistakes.

It is fine by me. I think I speak for us all when I say we're all happy to help newcomers.


Cool, so first questions ...

1. Should I post as my character (TBD, but new characrer level 1)? Is it a secret / mystery / aid to immersion if I do?

2. How do I get my character's stats to be at the top of each post?

3. When do we start? Aug 26? When the game minimally fills?

4. What are posting expectations? 1+ / day? Weekdays and weekends treated the same? Does time zone matter (I am in US Pacific, FWIW)

1. Yes. It doesn't necessarily keep anything a secret since you can just click on the profile to see someone's alias, but it does make it easier to keep everyone lined up. There's no "Was Watery Soup playing Castinus or that that Ebon Fist?" And, of course, in the actual gameplay thread you would post as your character.

2. You can click on the name for Castinus, Kal'Ryon or Hayden and see the formatting for characters. The key is to get the information in the Race and Class/Levels portion on the profile (even the information that isn't strictly race/class/levels.)

3. Because this game is being run as part of Gameday AND the special, we have to wait until August 26th to start. There will be several virtual tables running the same adventure at the same time with shared effects. Also, since you are new to PbP you should be aware that it will be almost Halloween before we finish. To give you an idea of the pace, it is expected that everyone post 1 to 2 times per day. I've been in games where everyone averaged 3 posts per day, but that was rare. And since, when combat comes, each post is a rounds worth of action, you're looking at a 3 or 4 round combat taking half a week.

4. I think I answered the posting expectations previously. But, I should mention that because we're part of a multitable special I might "bot" your character if you haven't posted in 24 hours and we're in combat just to keep everything flowing. That just means that I will do what I think your character is most likely to do but won't use any single use items. It also means that you need to have a good profile up so I can figure out what your character would do. And, you can set up botting instructions as well. "If A then do B. But if C do D."

So...that's a wall of text, I know but the part to be most interested in is #3 since knowing that it's going to take a couple months to play through this is probably the part that turns people away the most.

If you're still interested, we'd be glad to have you and help you learn about the great world of PbP.

Oh...and if you want to get a feel for this...here is a link to a game that I'm running for the other 3 players.


I completely understand the pace. I used to play Play By E-Mail Diplomacy, which had the same schedule.

Thanks for the answers! My next post should be under my character name. :)

Grand Lodge

NG Human Male Inquisitor (Nethys) 1 [AC 17 (T 13, FF 14) | HP 8/10 | F +4, R +5, W +5 | Init +4, Perception +6]

Bocke enters the room and looks at anything written on the walls. As a retired tomb raider, he's not used to entering rooms with so much light and so few warnings.

Silver Crusade

LG Cleric (Herald Caller) | HP 9 | AC 14/10/14 | Initiative +0 | Perception +10 | Fort +4 Ref +0 Will +7 (+9)

A Samsaran woman enters, bearing the sacred symbol of Shizuru.

This character is near the end of the boss fight of Master of the Fallen Fortress. GM is pretty slick and intends to have chronicles out before gameday. Quensha will still be level 1.

I couldn't find the game on the gameday sign-up sheet. Did I miss something? I don't want to steal anyone's spot.


Hao Jin Cataclysm Games I've Played (Session Tracker)

It's under the "Other Recruitment" tab because I wasn't originally doing it first come first served.

So, no need to check in anywhere else. You've got a spot. As does Bocke.

We've got room for 1 more.

And don't worry about coming in under the wire, I've got Castinus, Kal'Ryon and Hayden locked up in a scenario that I'm hoping to end by the end of next week.

Silver Crusade

LG Cleric (Herald Caller) | HP 9 | AC 14/10/14 | Initiative +0 | Perception +10 | Fort +4 Ref +0 Will +7 (+9)

Sweet. I just got my chronicle so that is sorted.


Hao Jin Cataclysm Games I've Played (Session Tracker)

Hey guys. Can everyone tell me which of the below scenarios your character you're playing in this scenario has played (even the guys that I probably know...)

#3-12 Wonders in the Weave I
#3-14 Wonders in the Weave II
#3-20 Rats of Round Mountain I
#3-21 Temple of Empyreal Enlightenment
#3-22 Rats of Round Mountain II
#6-21 Tapestry’s Trial
#6-97 Siege of Serpent

Game day has been pushed back two weeks due to delays in giving out scenarios.

It’s reported in Flaxseed.

Yup. Just saw the notifications this morning.

Feel free to keep chatting in character.

On a side note...have any of you played Ambush in Absalom?

It's a quick module that we could actually probably get through in 2 weeks. It doesn't provide XP or Gold but it gives you a couple small boons.

If there's enough interest, we might be able to play it while we're waiting for Gameday to kick off with this group.

I haven't played it. My only concern would be if we don't finish in time for the timed game. I guess if that's the case, we could just drop it prematurely. Since it doesn't give XP, prestige, or gold, it shouldn't have any drawbacks.

I'm game.

Seems pretty on brand for kal (chaotic and spontaneous). Let’s do it


Hao Jin Cataclysm Games I've Played (Session Tracker)

Ok, for anyone interested in trying to squeeze Ambush in Absalom in before Gameday starts the Gameplay thread is here.

Go ahead and post IC and we'll get going. I was able to do Fane of Fangs with another group in 8 days so, I expect we can do this one by the Wednesday before Gameday starts.

Or is this someone in the Bush family arriving in Absalom?

And what do you want to do with the aid token? Save it for a rainy day or go ahead and boost and pass?

It’s a feature of PFS Specials.

It’s a way for the separate ‘teams’ to interact and support each other.

Wow that sounds dull. And I'm an accountant so I know dull when I see it.
