Duskmire Accord 9 | Beacon Code Dilemma

A place for out-of-character discussion.


Duskmire Accord 9 | Beacon Code Dilemma

Looking to move to the briefing Friday-ish, around October 11th.

Acquisitives

Female CN skittermander space pirate operative (thief) 3 | SP 9/18 HP 20/20 | RP 4/4 | EAC 15; KAC 16 | Fort +1; Ref +6; Will +3 | Init: +4 | Perc:+9, SM: +6 | Speed 40ft | Active conditions: None.

Given that I've run this a few times, I think my only available PC is my third level operative Kaneeri. Are we cool with going low?

Acquisitives

Male Damaya Lashunta Operative (Spy / Star Knight) 6 | KAC 22 EAC 22 | HP 40/40 SP 42/42 RP 9/9 | F +5 R +11 W +6 (+1 vs. undead immunities)| Init +8 | Perc +12 | Active Status:: -none-

I believe my only freed up 3-6 right now is this fellow (a 5th level)

Dark Archive

GM

I'm fine going low or high. I have a 3rd level starfinder forerunner/soldier I can bring if we play down, or a 5th level technomancer if we end up playing up.

Grand Lodge

I'll be at a con starting that friday, but should be able to a post in rather late in the evening.

I think I'll be using a pregen so 4th level.


I will be bringing a 3rd level, too, (Mystic) so it's fine with me!

Sorry, I dotted in and then tabbed away, and then completely forgot to delete it in time.


Duskmire Accord 9 | Beacon Code Dilemma

Looks like we may be low tier. Still waiting on one player.

Please let me know if you a chronicle for any of the following (on this PC):
SFS #1–05: The First Mandate
SFS #1–16: Dreaming of the Future
SF Adventure Path #1: Incident at Absalom Station.
SFS Quests:Into the Unknown

Also, am I correct that you have each played this at scenario at least once before?

Dataphiles

I have 1-05 for this pc.

This will be my first time playing this scenario.

Acquisitives

Male Damaya Lashunta Operative (Spy / Star Knight) 6 | KAC 22 EAC 22 | HP 40/40 SP 42/42 RP 9/9 | F +5 R +11 W +6 (+1 vs. undead immunities)| Init +8 | Perc +12 | Active Status:: -none-

Hmm, I'm considering whether or not to flesh out one of my GM blobs (which would turn into a 4th level). That way I wouldn't be playing down... but OTOH Sovyal has 1-05, 1-16 and AP#1! I'll have to lock in my decision tomorrow.

I haven't played/GM'd this scenario yet.

Acquisitives

Female CN skittermander space pirate operative (thief) 3 | SP 9/18 HP 20/20 | RP 4/4 | EAC 15; KAC 16 | Fort +1; Ref +6; Will +3 | Init: +4 | Perc:+9, SM: +6 | Speed 40ft | Active conditions: None.

Kaneeri has Into the Unknown credit.

I have GMed this a few times.

Grand Lodge

I have played and gm'd it before. If I go with a pregen, then there are no connections, otherwise there is at least one connection.

Dataphiles

Male NG half-orc cyberborn mechanic 3 | SP 18/18 HP 23/24 | RP 5/6 | EAC 13; KAC 15 | Fort +3; Ref +6; Will +1 | Init: +3 | Perc: +4, darkvision 60 ft., SM: +0 | Speed 20ft | Expendables: Pulsecaster Rifle: 40/40 | Active conditions: Environmental Seals

None of those scenarios on this character. I have played this scenario before.

Great to be playing with you guys. I see some familiar faces.

Dax, I think we played together, with this character, on Protectorate Petition. And then I think maybe we were together on Acts of Association. I played the vesk gladiator Flameclaw there.

Sovyal, I played the yoski Gab with you in Reclaiming the Time-Lost Tear.

Valen, you ran me on Yesteryear's Truth last year on Gameday, with the halfling Ashtif Cloudskipper.

Incidentally - I do have a level 6 available who hasn't played this, which could push us up into the higher tier if we want. He completed Dreaming of the Future. He's a frontline soldier, so could tank for the group.


Duskmire Accord 9 | Beacon Code Dilemma

I've had the pleasure of sharing a table with most of you in the past and, based on that, I agree that this run should be a lot of fun. As this scenario is new to a number of you, I will likely stick a bit "closer to the text" than I may have otherwise, though I hope to add a few interesting layers for the repeats.

I will post the (rather lengthy) introduction shortly, but I'm fine with waiting until Monday to allow players to settle on characters/tier.

Acquisitives

Female CN skittermander space pirate operative (thief) 3 | SP 9/18 HP 20/20 | RP 4/4 | EAC 15; KAC 16 | Fort +1; Ref +6; Will +3 | Init: +4 | Perc:+9, SM: +6 | Speed 40ft | Active conditions: None.

If we’re choosing, I’d prefer to play down, since I have a Level 3 character.

Second Seekers (Jadnura)

Male Half-Elf Colonist Soldier/Starfinder Forerunner 3 | Spd:30 | SP: 27/27, HP:25/25, RP:4/5 | EAC:17 KAC:19 | Init +8 | Fort:5, Ref:5, Will:4 | Per:9 Sense Motive:1

With this character I have no credit for any of the scenarios listed.

I have played this scenario once and ran it twice, so I'll be letting others make most of the decisions (which makes sense in character, too).

Acquisitives

Male Damaya Lashunta Operative (Spy / Star Knight) 6 | KAC 22 EAC 22 | HP 40/40 SP 42/42 RP 9/9 | F +5 R +11 W +6 (+1 vs. undead immunities)| Init +8 | Perc +12 | Active Status:: -none-

Since it looks like I have another day to play around, I'll be brainstorming ideas for a character to turn my 4th level blob into. I'd hate to play down and overshadow the other characters.

Wayfinders

Female Dwarf Soldier 4 | SP 25/32 HP 34/34 RP 7/7 | EAC 23 KAC 24 | F +5 R +6 W +7 (+2 pois./spell/SLA) | Init +5 | Perc +10 | Status: -none-

OK, here's my replacement for Sovyal! A 4th level so that we're solidly low-tier.

Grand Lodge

OK. Con is done and I can now focus on this game. I've decided to go with Domak, my vesk operative 3/soldier 1. He has credit for Quest Into the Unkonwn.

Yes. I've gamed with some of you. It's good to be playing with friends.

Kaneeri has art! It is adorable!

I'm mostly done getting my profile together. I'm pretty sure I bought some gear before her last mission, and I need to figure out where I wrote that down.

The whole hook-hand-thing is less of an encumberance when you have 6 arms.

She isn't actually missing a hand; it's just plastic. Similarly, you might notice the seam going up the parrot, which is also a toy!

"Skitter me timbers!" That's awesome!


Ah! I did think that might the case given the "child's costume" description.

And I did notice that the parrot was a toy! I think it's a very fun concept.

Grand Lodge

Dagnabbit, I just realized that this character (Domak) already has credit for this scenario. I have another character, Donovan that I can play instead.

Slotted boons:

Permanent: Existing Half-Orc (Permanent, +2 Dexterity)
Faction: Dataphiles Champion, Improved
Promotional: T-shirt Reroll
Social: Expert Blackmail
Ally: Professional Hireling - +7 to Diplomacy/Bluff/Intimidate. The way I flavor this is that it's an AI chip that's plugged into my Exocortex, feeding me behavior suggestions when I make Diplomacy/Bluff rolls. I can't invoke the AI during combat, because my Exocortex is busy using combat tracking. Let me know if this is okay. I've played it this way several times and the GM has always been OK with it, because it's mechanically the same as having a separate hireling doing the action.

Relevant Slotless:
Marked Field Agent
Digital Presence - I will also be applying my Tier 2 Digital Presence boon, to get an additional +1 Fame/Reputation with Dataphiles for an online adventure.

I had hoped to get a post out at this table before I head out to a local con, but work/life got in the way. I probably won't get an update until Sunday night or, sometime Monday.

Have a great weekend!

So, just want to be sure I am clear: There's no way to manually hack into the computers from this side, because the control panel is destroyed?

That is correct. The scenario states, "The control panel on this side of the larger barrier has been destroyed, so it cannot be disabled from this side."

I love Ynge. I want her and her cookies on all my missions.

I agree. I really love the disarming quality of her grandmotherly disposition - but you better think twice before getting on her wrong side!

Happy you guys like her! After both playing as and playing with a lot of edgy Starfinders, I figured it was time for a kindly grandmother to join the ranks :>

I don't buy it. You're a halfling in a dwarf costume. ;)
