My apologies, but I have the opportunity to play this face to face here at my FLGS. I'll need to drop. I deleted my info from the sign up data base.

Hope I have the chance to play with you all another time.

Heya GM,

So, thanks to me doing some math wrong (namely in how some of the boons from #1-99 and #2-00 interact with each other), the character I was originally going to play in this game, Jaavik, might be too high level, so I'm going to switch to a level 2 Operative instead. I've made the changes on the spreadsheet, and I'll "re-dot" in the gameplay thread. Feel free to remove Jaavik from the characters list in favor of Oz.

Thanks, and with luck I'll have my character sheet ready to go in PbP format some time this week!

Alright, I'm finally set to go. I might get a GM credit on this character over the weekend, but since this PC is level 2 exactly, nothing should change except maybe a piece of gear or two.

Looking forward to playing with all of you on this one!
(It's super rare for me to get to play something I haven't already GM'd first!)

GM,

I am going to pull Tsultro out, and put a level 1 character in. That way I am not the only out of tier character. That and I believe that Tsultro has one or two 3-6 scenarios a certain GM is going to run for him IRL and I don't want to accidentally have him locked in a pbp when the GM asks to run those games.

I am thinking that my level 1 will either be a technomancer or a mechanic. Leaning toward mechanic.

Sounds good!

I've heard from or see adds from everybody that's signed up except the mysterious "uwilnvrkno". If you're here, uwilnvrkno, feel free to say hello!

Jagrur and his faithul bot Mechanadross--okay, okay, I am still working on feeling out the bots name....but considering Jagrur is a roboticist and the bot is still a LOT of work in progress....I figured mechanadross kinda fits--at your service.

Should have it in my bio by the end of the day today. He is level 2 (found out that I had put another chronicle on my -710 character and never put it into the 'GM Baby' folder....sigh).

Hi All,

I'm still level 1 but was wondering if you all preferred a soldier or mystic? If the spreadsheet is up to date I think a soldier but I'm fine with either.

Just here to confirm we'll be waiting two more weeks instead of starting in ~24 hours. Sorry for the delay everyone.

Likewise - no worries here! I might even put another GM credit on Oz, but I'll make sure he stays at level 2 so as to not mess up any APL calculations!

Hello everyone!

Odo' reached out to me to let me know he won't be able to play in this scenario. Before I reopen/advertise his now-open spot (on the PBP sign up sheet and in Castomir's station), I wanted to reach out to folks here to see if anybody knew somebody who'd be interested in playing. If I don't hear back in the next ~24 hours I'll post on Castomir station. Whoever signs up will have to do it on the same PBP Gameday sign-up sheet that we all used to get here.

I might know someone who could grab that 6th spot. Let me reach out to them and see if they're interested!

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 AFlashinTime either bot my character, or have another player bot me.

It turns out that one of the people I had in mind has already played this scenario, and the other doesn't think she'd have enough time (she is apparently playing in two other pbps right now during this gameday), so I suppose carry on with open recruitment!


Greetings (once again) everyone!

This is your alert/update that we'll be playing (by post!) SFS 2-01: Pact World Warriors beginning in just under five hours. My opening post will be up about then (or within a few hours of then) over in the gameplay window, so this is your final chance to change characters, drop out, etc. We haven't been successful finding a sixth player, but I'm sure you all will do just fine with five (since there's no four-player adjustment, just think of it as having gone up against the scenario on hard mode, only without extra rewards). Based on the sign ups we have three level two characters and two level ones, putting us squarely in the level 1-2 subtier.

Feel free to begin to banter in-character in the Gameplay thread if you would like. Your (pre-scenario) prompt is:

You all received an urgent message from Radaszam "the Dealmaker", the Vesk leader of the Acquisitives faction, to leave Absalom Station on board a starship belonging to the Obsidian Spiders, Radaszam's private mercenary outfit. Radaszam was short on details, only describing the matter as in the Starfinder Society's interest and that he would explain more once you meet him in person at your destination. While on board you meet the rest of the party (your friendly GM begins gesturing to the Gameplay thread), who have all received the same communication. The crew is tight-lipped about what this is all about, only telling you that the starship is bound for Eox. After a few days transiting through the Pact Worlds, the ship reaches Eox, and begins to descend...


So it's actually a little under 6 hours. Oops. Still, soon!


And we're off!

For those of you that don't know me, I go by AFlashInTime around the boards, or just Dan, and I'll be your guide along this wonderful starfinding adventure. For those that I've played with before, it's great to see you again! For those that I haven't, it's great to meet you!

For pace, I try to post at least once a day, usually in the evenings in the United States. Mondays (tomorrow) are a little bit harder for me, but I should be able to let you know if there's going to be a 2+ day period without posting.

I'm a huge fan of RPing in PbP. I almost like PbP better than "normal" tabletop gaming from a RPing aspect because you can write as much as you want about what your character is thinking, feeling, and experiencing as the adventure plays out. But please don't hesitate to break character if something I've explained is unclear or I made a mistake, skipped you in initiative, etc.

To keep things moving along, I typically go by the "seconded" way of decision making - once a course of action is proposed, if somebody else in the party "seconds" the action "Yeah, let's move through the door", that's where the party's going instead of having to wait for everybody to chime in which can slow things down for sometimes trivial decisions. Let me know if anybody is vehemently opposed to this type of party decision making.

We'll be using slides for maps and scenario art. The link can be found in the top left (or in my first real post in the Gameplay thread). I'll reference it when we have art of characters, monsters, or need a map for combat encounters.

I'm sure I'll think of more to pass on as we go, but for now, once again, welcome and enjoy!

A couple of quick notes for you, GM:

1 - Elebrians can roll to recall knowledge on any subject, and can always take 20 as long as they have 2 minutes to stop and think. Would you like me to ask each time a recall knowledge opportunity comes up, or would it be easier for us to figure that out in advance some how?

2 - Oz has the "trap spotter" operative exploit, so he gets a free perception check (modifier noted in his stat-line) whenever he passes within 10 feet of a trap, even if he's not actively searching for one. Just wanted to let you know. Thanks in advance!

My deepest sympathies.


I'm sorry to hear that. We'll be here when you're ready.


@Ozmin

I also have an Elebrian character! One of my favorites, actually. If you could give me your character's bonuses to the "knowledge" checks -Engineering, Life Science, Mysticism, and Physical Science (off the top of my head) - I will give you the appropriate results for "taking 20" if there are 2 minutes available. And noted on the trap ability as well!


For everyone,

Since we're still in the introduction part of the scenario (and we're doing the weird time jump between on the ship introductions and mission briefing on Eox, oops) I'm going to hold off from making a Gameplay post tonight. We'll let everybody get caught up on introductions over the next 24 hours or so, get some questions asked, then go from there.

This will be only my second time playing him (#1-99 boon got him to level 2 to start), so I'm looking forward to see how he "operates" as it were!

@Oz,

Mine is a mystic/divine champion of Pharasma with the cultist theme because worship of Pharasma on Eox is... strongly discouraged. He also has no love for his home planet.

Please, please let somebody tell Jagrur on the comms about the keypad before he attempts to get a droid into the crawlspace.....That will be all sorts of move equivalent annoyances ;-)

And I hope somebody can hack it. If it can open a door it will make me and 'Dross be able to get of the room in the next 20 turns ;-)

I feel I should apologize now, and in advance - Oz is kind of an a**hole.

I try to tone down what I think goes through his head versus what he says/does, but sometimes I wonder if I don't do it enough. He's very much that "sigh...fine" kinda person who always makes it seem like they're being dragged along everywhere, and nothing is ever good enough for them.

In case that comes through in the pbp worse than when playing him in person, I just want to say that if it gets on anyone's nerves, let me know and I'll dial it back even more!

A square is 5 ft right? Last round I moved half speed (30/2 = 15) and this round I did the same..so that's a total of 6 squares which takes me from the start of the beams to the end as far I can tell
