This is a tier 2-4 module granting 3XP and 4PP upon successful completion. If you're still deciding which character to bring I recommend favouring a lvl 3 over a lvl 2.

Day job roll The miserable mage strokes his beard.

"Day job!?" he responds. "Day Job?!"

"Why, sir, do you seek to insult me, Golthwur Strath? Master of Magic? Scion of Sorcery? Potentate of Power? I would think not! For surely, even the most mundane of men knows that a mage's pursuits of matters arcane and wondrous e is neither restrained by the hours of sunlight nor a task undertaken merely for a wage!"

Slow or normal xp track Normal (at least, as "normal" as Golthwur can be.)

Unfortunately, Golthwur is just shy of 3rd level (by 1 XP). I'll be updating his profile to reflect his more recent adventures in the next couple of weeks.

Jeskit just hit lvl 3. I'll update in short order.


Was going to bring my Cavalier 2, but am reconsidering in light of the GM's suggestion. I've got a Wizard/Rogue 3 and an Alchemist 3.2 (but need to build him - GM baby) available, and also I think I'll have a Psychic 4 available by the time we start. Will give it a bit of thought.


Feast of Ravenmoor | Dead Man's Debt

I tend to lean away from playing a pathfinder module at the bottom end of the sanctioned tier range - most modules assume a level up (or more than one) between the start and the final encounter, but you don't get to do that in PFS - so if you do play at level 2 the risk is greater.

Gronkh looks pretty tough for a level 2, but it's up to you in the end.

Golthwur is fun to play, but the aged mage is not the best equipped for survival (though he would rage against any who hinted at such!).

I am fine playing a level 4 pregen, particularly if it is necessary to increase the survivability of not just Golthwur, but of the entire party.


Feast of Ravenmoor | Dead Man's Debt

I don't want to put you off playing your chosen characters :)

When I played this module we had a lvl 3 swashigator, my lvl 3 divine verminous hunter with mantis companion, my wife's lvl 3 monk (basically a Sajan pregen clone, very slightly tweaked), a level 2 switch-hitter ranger, and a level 1 pregen warpriest. The latter was a bit of a screw-up, because the player brought an illegal character but he was brand new, and the mistake wasn't spotted till we were several hours in; I think he brought his PC from his home game. He should have been given a level 4 pregen, not the level 1. This party survived and was successful. With 4 level 3s and 2 level 2s you should be OK, but the level 2s will naturally find it slightly more dangerous.

Yagaji is a bright & shiny Nagaji Paladin of Iomedae...and he's dumber than a bag of hammers.
(Not certain if profile is entirely up-to-date: he's played one more scenario IRL, and need to check ITS, etc. But most of it should be accurate. )

Hmmmm. It looks like, with Golthwur, we would have 3 level 2s. On top of that, Golthwur is an absolute coward who often contributes little to combat (though he would vehemently deny it!).

While a squishy coward may be fun to play, I don't want my PC choice putting the entire party at risk.

Any suggestions on a pregen? Looks like we have a couple front liners and a caster. Do we need a healer? Should I bring 4th-level Kyra?

If I have time to build him I’ll be bringing an Alchemist 3 instead of my Cavalier 2


Feast of Ravenmoor | Dead Man's Debt

Official start date isn't till August 26th, so you should have time to make your alchemist.

Current party roster:

Golthwur (wiz2)
Byron (wiz3)
Yagajimoro (pal2)
Jeskit (bldrgr3)
not-gronkh (alc3)
angela (inv3)

Sedoriku hasn't checked in yet with Angela. This party looks like it might be doing a lot of book-sharing ;)

The module is written for 4 PCs, so you're looking OK I think.

You should play Golthwur and let the chips fall where they may. Either we'll succeed, or we won't. As long as we have some fun along the way, it matters little...

The small halfling gives Golthwur's outbreak a single raised eyebrow before she sets down her pack, pulls out a small note pad. She writes a small note on the first page and tears it out before removing a single manil folder with the wizard's name written on it. She then takes out a small contraption and affixes the note to the inside of the folder with a small metal barb. She puts the folder away and gives Golthwur a professional smile.

Sorry for the wait! I was traveling and didn't check Paizo for a good while there! But I'm back, though it looks like we're having a delayed start anyways!


Feast of Ravenmoor | Dead Man's Debt

Yup.

Gameday start is postponed 2 weeks because scenarios haven’t dropped yet.


Gives me a little more time to see if I can pull my Alchemist together...


Feast of Ravenmoor | Dead Man's Debt

There is now a link to the slides for the scenario at the top of the page, and in my profile header.

I borrowed heavily from slides prepared by GM Jakuri, which has saved me a fair bit of work.

Abraham, when your character is ready please add details to Slide 1.

I am on UK time, but my most frequent posting time is late night. On September 8th I am due to have minor surgery - outpatient only, but I might still be recovering from sedation on the 9th, which might slightly delay the 'official' beginning. I'll aim to get an introductory post up in the week though.

I was just going to post something about it being one more week before we start! Lol. Here's hoping the surgery goes well!

My apologies, but I have a family wedding this weekend, and I'll be driving for 12+ hours on Thursday and Sunday. Obviously, it'll be difficult to post every day, so please do bot me as necessary.


Feast of Ravenmoor | Dead Man's Debt

No worries Yagaji - speaking of botting, could you all (if you haven't already) put some basic Bot Me instructions in your profile please? I do like to keep things moving and will normally bot in combat if you haven't posted 24 hours after your turn comes up.

I do hope you meant "PCs" ticking you off and not this player. If not, then I apologise because I certainly did not mean to offend or appear to "sabotage" the party's chances at success. That is not my intent and if I cross that line, please let me know and I will adjust the PC.

As a PC, Golthwur is an unrepentant jerk, but I don't wish to act like one as a player. If the way I play Golthwur makes someone uncomfortable or otherwise ruins ani,

Sorry for the double post. I was preparing a post, while waiting for my son to get ready for school. When he needed help, it looks like the post got sent inadvertently.

Golthwur the PC acts like an unrepentant jerk, but, as a player, I want to be helpful, considerate and fun. If I can improve my play in any way on those fronts, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Ahhhhh! I meant PC! Player character! You are playing Golthwur beautifully, and I love it! Sorry for the mix up. I may have taken the character part out somewhere in editing blah.

Golthwur is fun :) I am liking how this party is shaping up!

Gameplay update later today.

@ Angela - I figured as much, but knowing that communication can be imperfect, I'd rather be overly cautious than risk making anyone uncomfortable. Thanks for the encouragement!

@ GM supervillain (and all) = This is a good group! Great roleplaying of NPCs and PCs alike! I'm really enjoying this run and eager to see what happens next.

Yep, I'm also super enjoying Golthwur and haven't been offended by anything he's said or done! This group is highly entertaining. Doing my best to keep up, though Gronkh is one of those PCs whose personality I haven't quite "gotten" yet, beyond that he's in it for the gold.
