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 :)

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 (sfs-pbpgd-table2) 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.

    I really enjoyed 1-10 Half Alive Streets. Just because all the characters went above and beyond in terms of roleplay particularly with non story relevant character interactions.

    Edit: on second thought, I see all but one of us are low tier. I'll think about this.

    Out of Character Questions

    Can you access Google Slides? Yes so far (on my tablet not so easy, but on any computer I use yes)

    Do you have an up-to-date 'bot me' spoiler -- complete with dice expressions? (check out Kastien's botme) Maybe not 100% up to date (I hit level 5 with GM credit), but will be when the game starts.

    Will you be willing to bot other characters if I ask you to do so? If you need me to yes.

    Do you promise to let me know if you get super busy for a few days so we can bot you? Sure. I will say now if the game lasts until the end of September (28th to Oct 6th) I will be on a ship on the East coast of the US during that time. I might be able to access via tablet sometimes (probably when we are at port), as I don't want to be charged a huge fee for using the ships wifi.

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

    What's been your favorite SFS Adventure with this character, and why?About half of this character XP is GM credit, so I will say as a player, "In Pursuit of the Scoured Past", or "It Rests Beneath" were likely the two I remember most with her.

    Day Job: Forgo Day Job for Instructor Boon

    Any other special things you need me to note on your chronicle? Instructor Boon grants 1 additional Fame for the purpose of the Boon (full text below for reference).

    Instructor Boon:
    This boon represents time spent outside of adventuring that you’re taking to train a potential new Starfinder. At the end of every adventure you have this boon slotted, record the total amount of Fame you earned. You can expend your Downtime at the end of an adventure to increase the amount of Fame recorded for this boon by 1. Once you have accrued 40 Fame with this boon, your student has come into their own and is ready to become a full-fledged Starfinder (a new character). Have your GM mark the Chronicle sheet where you accomplished this, and keep a copy with your new character. When your new character reaches 5th level, instead of choosing four ability scores to increase, you can choose five. Otherwise you follow all other rules for leveling up. This bonus applies only at 5th level.

    Just waiting on Dr. Creed to decide and finish his profile, and for Senesdar to grow/replace a new hand before checking in. In the meantime, we're coming down to the last week of prep time before the PBPGD kickoff, so I just wanted to check in and make sure everyone is ready for a fast start. If you have questions, now is the time to ask.

    Sorry, I actually got my scenarios mixed up and would prefer to slot Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsebo) as my Faction, rather than the Acquisitives. I have 14 reputation with Second Seekers (LE).

    Okay, you guys have probably heard by now, but Gameday has been delayed 2 weeks, largely due to the GMs not receiving the specials on time. Our official start date is now Sep 9. I'll keep you posted if things change.

    Since this was put on hold for a couple weeks, I am going to just mention that I am going to likely be out of Wireless or Cell service between the days of September 27th until October 6th. I might have service when the ship docks and I can disembark for a little while. If you need to move the story forward, please Bigrin either bot my character, or have another player bot me.

    We may want to sort out starship roles here.

    Dr. Morvius would make a decent captain, engineer, or science officer. If there are better options for those, he could be a gunner if needed.

    Grand Lodge

    Saryn can Pilot +6 and Engineer +6, but is really a Gunner +6

    Scarab Sages

    Janilla prefers the captain (Diplomacy +10), though she can do the Enginner job (Engineering +9), Gunner (+8 to hit (Piloting 5 ranks, +3 Dex)). While she is probably one of the better Pilots...she REALLY doesn't like to pilot, all the pressure of making the immediate calls on where to move and all...(Piloting +11...stupid +2 for being a halfling....sigh). Oh, and she can attempt to be a Science officer (Computers +4), but you shouldn't ask her to do that...

    Fixit is best suited as the Engineer or Science Officer as he has large bonuses in both Engineering & Computers.

    Exo-Guardians

    Male N Kasatha Gladiator Soldier 4 | SP 32/32 HP 32/32 | RP 5/6 | EAC 16; KAC 16; ACvCM 24 | Fort +5; Ref +3; Will +5 | Init: +2 | Perc: +1, SM: +1 | Speed 40 ft | darkvision 60 ft (in armor), normal vision | Active conditions: none

    The only things Senesdar is really any good at it being a gunner (+6 to hit) and a very commanding captain (+7 intimidate, no diplomacy or bluff).

    Grand Lodge

    Janilla is our best pilot by far.
    Fixit can go Engineer
    Senesdar as Gunner
    Dr Morvius in the Captain's chair.
    Saryn on Guns
    Chik-Chik as Science Officer

    Any other suggestions?

    Note, that Dax is right that Janilla is likely the best pilot. She will likely not make any move towards it unless goaded, and if goaded, you will hear complaining from her about why she has to be the pilot (her personality, she hates being type cast as an ace pilot just because she is a halfling). ;-)

    Though the sensors on Pegasus and such might be better if we need to find things on the planet. I just know that when we have to choose a ship...usually the stronger ship helps in combat (especially if we have those bad dice rolls I usually have when playing starship combat :-P )

    I suggest letting Fixit and Chik-Chik fight over Engineer and SO; Saryn and Senesdar can take the guns; Janilla is our best Pilot; Dr Creed can lord his title over us as Captain.

    @Fixit - since you went to the trouble of taking Skill Focus in Computers, do you want to take Science Officer, and Chikasa can take Engineering. Looks like there's less of a gap there in terms of our respective bonuses too, so that would probably be the optimal spot for me at least.

    Thats fine with me. Fixit tends to end up as the Engineer so SO will make a nice change.

    Just a reminder, I am on vacation as of tomorrow. I will have access to internet Saturday, Sunday, most of Monday and maybe Wednesday. Tuesday, Thursday and Friday I won't. I will be back home on October 5th to continue with normal posting.

    The 'enjoyment' of a cruise up the Eastern US and Canada is definitely needed.

    And home...will be able to actually think and post as of tomorrow. Tonight I need to do some vegging out and probably sleep. Flight was exhausting.

    Sorry, Janilla, I think you're right. I probably should have focused on patching the power core and letting Fixit get back to SO station to rebalance the shields. We can focus on restoring shield points while we keep chipping away at the enemy with our better weapons. Will take that into consideration next round.

    Chikasa, it is fine. Janilla is just an angry driver at this point. :-)
    Remember, she really doesn't like flying, and at this point I am amazed she hasn't barfed everywhere (that might be next round...I am contemplating a flyby maneuver, or something else especially fun). Also, it seems weird that this ship just manifested here...and she is wondering WTF is happening.

    Thinking tacticks....though with our big guns on the forward, and so is theirs, I really don't think we will do any 'playing chicken' actions soon....though having shields strengthened in the forward, so that the heavy laser cannon could be used would be nice...just will require me to keep making initiative (which we know won't happen all the time).

    I am probably one of the maybe dozen or so people that actually like Ship Combat. It is a decent set of rules (compared to say Warhammer 40k Rogue Trader, or others I have tried), that at least gives everybody something to do. I do not like though that at lower levels, the Engineer always diverts power, science officer either targets or balances shields, and gunners either fire one or 2 weapons. Very little for those crew actions to do that is fun. Captain and Pilot are the 2 crew that has variance.

    I also really enjoy ship combat, although I agree that it gets much more interesting at higher levels. My favorite role would probably be Engineer, due to overall having so many options as to how to increase the other roles abilities (through divert) or removing their penalties (patch/hold together).

    I really enjoy the ship combat. On tabletop it is a bit more fun, but only because it moves a little more swiftly. Which is why I am trying to check in on this thread a bit more often than my others. OF course, being sick and having single daddy duties this last week haven't helped.

    Using two engineers is actually a smart move...right up until the point where your shields in one quadrant get focused on. Then unfortunately you have to have an SO to balance things out and move shield points from the less-targeted areas.

    Yeah. I don't know what Creed has, but if he has a decent computers, he could step down being Captain long enough to do Science officer. Seen that happen a time or two where the captain took over some other duty for a round or two (science officer, or even gunner one time).

    I'll join the chorus of enjoying ship combat! I'm really excited to see the additions coming up in COM, though, especially so some of my other SFS characters can have a chance at being relevant in those settings.

    Enjoying ship combat is unanimous! I love it! I have some 3D printed Drakes and Pegasus, and I have a bunch of cool ships by 0-hr games I like to use in home games.

    I contemplated changing roles, and I may if we survive another turn. I have decent computers and engineering.

    Meanwhile, I just cajoled Saryn into winning this thing for us!
