Join the vesk crew of the VHS Jioh's Spine and climb into a orbital dropsled headed planetside for a mission to boost your personal honor and fight for the glory of the Veskarium!

Recruiting for up to 6 players! No prior Starfinder experience required! There is no planned starship combat in this adventure.

I have previously run this event at conventions, including Gen Con 2019. It was designed to be run in a 4 hour convention slot, to give you an idea of the length. I have 1st level pregens available. There are 1 female and 1 male for each core class, and each build takes different options. You are also welcome to furnish your own character so long as it is a vesk, and follows some minimal requirements (basically Core Rulebook only). Starting characters have a fairly decent gear loadout provided by the glorious Veskarium!

Posting schedule should be 1-2 times a day at minimum. I will be using Google Drawings for maps as needed. I will recruit for a few days. Links to the pregens are below, when expressing interest please indicate if you plan to use a pregen or build your own (and submit for review). I have taken some liberties to start creating my own vesk canon material, but if you like klingons or the jem'hadar you'll understand my take on the vesk. This is not a Starfinder Society game.

Are you ready to take your place and fight for your honor and for the glory of your house, and Damoritosh?


I'll be the first to dot interest, never played Starfinder before.

I have played other space games using different rules.

I may be taking a Pregen since I don't have the Hero Lab license for Starfinder to check for my newbie to Starfinder mistakes ... LOL. I will not be able to view the pregen until I get home tonight.


I'll gladly pick the House Soldier.

I think the Gorn fit the Vesk as well.

With everyone worshiping Damoritosh, will this be more of an evil campaign?


Hi, I would be interested in this. I actually created a Vesk Mercenary Soldier for another PbP game on a different site that never took off. It's close to your pregen one but if it's OK I'd like to use mine since I spent a while creating it and would like to give it a whirl.

If that works let me know if you want me to post it here or via a PM.

Thanks.


Hello folks!

I guess I borked this up slightly. When I didn't see any interest in the first few days I marked the campaign as closed, not realizing that it would leave this thread open.

If we can get a least 4 interested players I'll be happy to still run this for you guys!

@Zahir - I doubt very seriously that the Veskarium consider themselves evil. :) So long as deeds are done for Conquest, Duty, and War in the name of Damoritosh, I'm sure we don't need to worry about such labels. :)

Expressed interest:
Anderlorn - House Soldier (pregen)
Mainiac - Mercnary Soldier (custom)

I could do some sort of a melee Envoy if desired.


The Bloodspeaker Envoy is a bit of a melee build, but you are certainly welcome to custom anything you'd prefer.


Kind of surprised with the lack of interest.

I wonder if it is because the thread is marked inactive?


Sort of chicken/egg I guess. I only put it inactive after a few days of no posts. I just removed the inactive status now though.

Let's see if we can find some other worthy warriors!

I’ll definitely be throwing down a melee Vesk Envoy

Can I just take the list of gear that your Bloodspeaker Envoy has?


I'll throw in on one of the mystic builds....


@Zahir - absolutely!

@Spazmodeus - just let me know which you'd prefer.

If selected, I’ll stick the rest of his gear on him.

GM, at 4th level, I’ll likely dip Soldier. When I do so, I’d gain Advanced Melee Weapons, can I retrain my 1st level Feat at that time?

I'd be interested in either a technomancer or a solarion.

Haha, this being a “4 hour run” it seems unlikely that leveling up is important, you can belay answering my last question!


@Zahir - I promise if it becomes relevant, I will absolutely allow it. :)

Forgot to mention, I’d might want to make my own character, if that’s alright.


@Simeon - that is totally fine with me! I will pull the the 'standard issue gear kit' that I gave to all these pregens and post it later today so you guys will know what gear to add. These pregens are overspent for their level on purpose. In keeping with theme, the technomancer should take longarm proficiency feat.

The pregens have been sort of speced out so that everyone* is using an azmith laser rifle. There are a few doshko wielders (mainly the priests), and the soliders get light reactions cannons since they are the party heavies, and of course solarians always bring their own weapon. But the sort of default assumption is everyone* has been trained in the use of rifles.

Vesk First Duty Assignment Standard Issue Gear

*some exceptions may apply


Isn't (9) rounds a little low? Usually military and police usually carry 30+.


Probably, but since nobody has had to use their backup sidearm yet I'm not overly concerned. You'll also have some credits to spend on additional gear when things get started.

For those of you creating custom characters, I'd like to have them turned in by Monday evening (Eastern time) so we can get things started.

Sounds good for the game.

It’s looking like I won’t have time to create a custom character, so I’ll go for one of the pregens, probably house mage.


That works for me!

I have opened the Discussion thread here.

We can absolutely roll with 4 players, and should Mainiac submit a character before we start gameplay, or someone else wants to hop in the open slot I am happy to accommodate them.
