GM Quirk's Acts of Association (Inactive)

Game Master Quirk, Private Eye

Maps and Handouts



Greetings, brave Starfinders!

I'd like to post a couple of guidelines for this adventure that I hope you'll take to heart.

1. Please plan on posting at least once a day. We may slow down a bit on weekends, though I hope to be able to at least make a GM post or two even then.

2. This adventure is an opportunity to truly stretch your role playing prowess! Please embrace that, and enjoy interacting with the NPC's presented to you. I promise I will do my best to make these NPC's and their situations enjoyable for you. Acts of Association is, for the most part, very light hearted.

3. With that in mind, I hope I won't be metagaming too much by suggesting you find ways of doing nonlethal damage. Many of the encounters will best be solved by NOT killing something!

My next post will be a request for information I'll need from you as players.


Here is some information I'll need from each of you:

1. Your character's name, class, race, and level.

2. Your organized play number + character number.

3. An email address for me to send the chronicle sheet.

4. Slotted faction.

5. Day job roll (if applicable).

6. Please put a "bot me" expression on your online character.

7. Instead of simply "dotting in" over at game play, please feel free to post a short background for your character. It can be a short description, or it can be narrative in form.

8. (Optional) A little bit about you as a player might be nice. I always enjoy getting to know the people I interact with here. On the other hand, I know some also appreciate the anonymity of the internet, so feel free to skip this part.


A little about me:

My name is Alan, and when I'm not playing games with all of you I'm working at a community television facility in the midwest United States. I live at home with my wife, two teenagers, and Penny Lane and Clementine the Guinea Pigs.

I have been playing and GMing RPG's since 198coughcough.

This is my first time GMing a PBP game. I have had some good GM's here on the Paizo forums, so I think I'm ready.

I work in coding in the UK. I've been running tabletop games for my friends for a few years now, but I've not done too much PbP yet. I've done a couple of other PbP Starfinder scenarios, but that's it so far.

I'll add a bot-me section to my character profile.

Long time gamer (board, RPG, CCG) going way back (D&D in '78). I only just got into organized play when Starfinder was released and haven't looked back. I'm a programmer for a small medical company, currently waiting to hear back from the FDA about the project I've been working on for the last several years.

8. Buncha noobs here! I started playing D&D in 1977, and played wargames before that (mostly SPI games). Due to profession, family, and geography I haven't been able to do practically any F2F gaming for the last couple of decades. PbP has been a boon for me over the past 8+ years (hence the more than 30k posts on the boards). I'm part of a team handling safety support, environmental compliance, and quality assurance for one research directorate at Argonne National Lab near Chicago. Mich, whereabouts are you?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I'm pleased I -might- not be the oldest one here!


By the way, I'm thinking we'll get things going Thursday night. Let me know if that's a problem for anyone.

It's a decent place to work. I live in the other direction, about as far (west edge of Joliet).

Quirk, I'll be playing this with my technomancer Gletch instead of Officer Wilson. I realized (after dotting in) that Wilson will hit Lvl 2, and I want to hold off on playing him again until I am able to rebuild him with the Law Enforcement theme (and maybe some other stuff) from the Character Operations Manual.

It looks like this will be a tech-heavy crew ... which, having played this scenario before, will make things interesting. :)

1. Gletch, Bleachling Gnome Technomancer 2
2. 108452-707
3. Will PM
4. Dataphiles Champion
5. None - Will check of "Savior of Tasch" Boon
6. "Bot Me" added
7. Will do.
8. I started roleplaying with AD&D 2nd edition, some homebrew stuff, but really got into it through Dragonlance and Dark Sun.

I am on a business trip right now and will be flying home tomorrow night, so probably will not be able to post until Friday morning.


Seeing if our 6th player will pop by. I'm fine with 5 if I don't see anything tomorrow.


Chiskisk's briefing is up. Looks like we may go with 5 characters, which is fine with me (though I'd be willing to let someone in yet this weekend.

We'll play out any questions you might have for Chiskisk today, and then meet Bubs tomorrow!

Sorry, had a tooth pulled this week and the painkillers had me out of it!


Welcome Cycle-1. You're right on time. If you could review my notes above and post the required information I'd appreciate it.

Do you have map tokens set up for us?


Usually just a matter of copying and pasting your pic, then resizing on the map. I went ahead and did yours. It's also common to add a color boarder.

I asked because when I GM, I set the counters up myself; in several years of PbP, I haven't had to do it as a player.


Yeah, I've seen it done both ways. For any further maps, it will be easy now that we have everybody (I went ahead put Cycle-1 on the map near the bridge).

I would expect a large update tonight when I get home from work.

This isn't a quest, is it? Should we go ahead and slot our boons?


Gah! Did I forget that?

By all means, slot your boons. Despite the fact that you're on a ship right now, there is no starship combat.

Also, no other special boons you could slot.

I've got my slotted boons on my character sheet (nothing exciting).

If these are pugwumpi I am going to have words with the author.

Just a quick heads up - Pax Unplugged starts today, and I will be there playing and GMing Starfinder through Sunday. I will try and get a post up while there, but I wouldn't count on it. Sorry for the absence.

It looks like our solarian's player hasn't posted anything since early November.


Yeah. A little bummed about that.

I'll probably bot Kaia (the envoy) by the end of the weekend and put this thing to bed. I'll try to navigate getting everyone your sheets after that.

After what happened to Justin Warren, I get concerned any time a player goes quiet in all their aliases.


Still working on chronicle sheets. This is the first time I have GM'd online, so I am still working on the best way to manage the sheets for all of you. I think I finally found the right app to fill in the PDF and save the chronicle sheet separately from the rest of the adventure.

I'll either email these, or see about sharing on google docs or something like that.

You don’t need an app, you just can “print” the chronicle in .pdf ;-)

How's it going with the chronicles?


Things were Christmas central at our home this past weekend. I promise I haven't forgotten all of you though.

I'll see what I can do tonight.


Hey Gletch, not sure I ever got your email in my PM's. Could you send? I am starting to send out chronicle sheets via email. Mich Igan should see his now, working on others.


Looks like I need an email address from Kaia as well. Rex, Lola, and Mich--I have emailed the chronicle sheet to the email address you have provided.

Gletch and Kaia, feel free to PM me those email addresses.

Got it,and it looks fine. Thanks again for running!


It's truly a Christmas miracle! Event is reported, and 3 out of 5 of you have chronicle sheets emailed.

GM Q, if everyone has their chronicle sheet, can you set the game threads to inactive? Thanks!


Thanks for the reminder. I have not heard from Kaia yet, so I'd like to leave this up 48 more hours and see if my messages are seen.

Thank you for bearing with me, and Happy New Year to everyone!
