PFS2 01-01 The Absalom Initiation

Game Master Nevynxxx

A new era is beginning for the Pathfinder Society, with new recruits and new factions all excited to build connections and embark on grand adventures. Those recruits invited to attend a welcoming party can meet both the old guard as well as the up-and-coming leaders. But the party's not all talk; the PCs learn of four exciting escapades in Absalom, through which they can kick off their adventuring careers!

Hi, I'm looking for 5 players to join one I've already got for the above Society Module.

Ideally I want all brand new characters for an intrigue heavy scenario (as far as pfs goes, there's still plenty of fighting!)

This is a quest, so 4 sub modules, that can be completed in any order after an intro.

I'm looking for players who can post 1/day, ideally uk/eu but not vital. I'm looking for people who will abide by a couple of formatting rules for combat/initiative posts, that will be posted in the discussion thread. Nothing too onerous, just to make my life as gm easier tracking wise. But I will insist, so you should know that up front.

As for me, I'm able to post every day, usually 2 or 3 times, and sometimes on the weekend too. I have been running games on here on and off for years now, and I'm not going anywhere soon.

This game will be reported, so once started, please don't play parts of this module anywhere else until we are done.

I already have one player. Looking for 5 more.

Hello, Nevynxxx. I would like to join you on this endeavor, pretty please.


I too would like to try out the new rules set.

Bump!

There are some pregens available if anyone doesn't fancy character creation this time out.

I’m up for trying the character creation process. Are there guidelines available online somewhere or do we just need to wait for you to post them?

As the ruleset is so new, the PFS version is extreamly close to the core rulebook version.

This is the definitive guide though.

OK - I didn't know if there was anything specific to the scenario to guide a person toward making characters that would be a better fit.

No, no players guide as such. The idea of society is that characters are Pathfinders, and fairly well rounded so you can sit at a table and play alongside pretty much anyone.

In reality, most games are more organised than that and characters can be picked to make a nice mix of skills like any other game.

Maybe I will throw a variety of characters together if I have time just to have fun with that process. I presume these need to be first-level characters, is that correct?

Is the other player you mentioned leaning toward something? I'm mostly looking to narrow down my choices, so I will try to avoid stepping on their toes with my character.


I am thinking some kind of arcane caster.


I'd like to apply if you're still accepting. I'm in the GMT+2 timezone. I'd like to use my playtest points to create a 2nd - level character if that's fine.

I might go with a halfling rogue. Not terribly original, but it’s a chassis I’m familiar with while I learn other rules.

I would like to apply. If appropriate, I would also like Cyber, enter 2nd level character using my playtest points.

I was thinking of a rogue-ruffian, cleric-warpriest, or a fighter if accepted.

A couple of level 2 characters in the mix is fine with me.

We have a Discussion Thread if you want to move over there for Char creation?

So far we have:

Wintergreen:
Pixie Rogue: Halfling Rogue
Terevalis: Arcane caster
Arklore: ogue-ruffian, cleric-warpriest, or a fighter (2nd level)
CyberMephit: Something second level

That leaves one spot open, but I'm happy to go with 5 players if we don't get another recruit today.


I would be interested but I'll have to go home and read through the new rules for what I might want to make.

I expect it will take a few days to get characters sorted before we kick off, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Hi, do you have room for one more? Thinking a Dual wielding Ranger or Archer Fighter

I am planning an archer ranger at the moment.

Dark Archive

Sethran, I'm happy to take a number 6.... looks like we have two rangers so far, one is level two. So although I won't say "no" to that idea, you may want to rethink the character.

Liberty's Edge

Brill. Yeah i checked the discussion after. I will try something different

Envoy's Alliance

For what it is worth, my rogue Boram is not built to be a major melee contributor and has virtually no ranged attack options. I suspect there's a lot of room for him and another rogue if that's a course that interests you.
