Can you provide some guidance as to equipment to buy so we don't have to deal with mundane details of traveling in the cold? Will a Cold Weather Outfit be sufficient?

A Cold Weather Outfit is a must. I would also buy Cleats from the APG.

So...we have 4, Svartill and Hayden aren't joining us. I've reached out to most of our former players to let them know it's going. Vanna has already said she's already done this one and Waggi has also bowed out.

I know Baram and Itham have both had increases in personal life lately and are pulling back some so I don't know that they'll join us.

I'll give everyone else until Friday to answer and, if we still need people, I'll go to general recruitment at Flaxseed.

My plan is to really start on Monday, but feel free to RP in the Gameplay thread until then.

Oh hang on though. If we got 2 xp from the last game that put me up to 6 and therefore level 3? Is that still ok for this game?

Oops. It should only have been 1 xp. I'll upload a corrected sheet this afternoon when the internet at my house works again.

And the updated Chronicle sheet has been uploaded HERE.

And with Fiata and Ichio joining us, we now have 6. It's good to have you guys back again! I'm excited to see what's changed in the characters since the last time we saw them.

Let's begin!

Everyone check slide one of the maps. There's a picture of Haltani. I also copied over the initiative and perception info for the people who played with us in the Cataclysm. Please double check that everything is still correct (it should be...I don't think anyone leveled up.)

Fiata and Ichio, please put your information in there, as well.

I am also going to get a wand of endure elements.

I'm tempted to add a campfire bead as well... Any thoughts?

I love campfire beads in my home games- but I find them too situational in PFS. There is less traveling/camping RP in society- which is where they really shine.

No I found them on 20pfssrd. Is that an issue ? I assumed published paizo items are allowed ...?

Not all of them, actually. You have to double check on the "additional resources" page.

Alternatively, you can check on Archives of Nethys. They have a symbol of the open road next to anything legal.

Your boots are legal, btw.

Silver Crusade

LG Cleric (Herald Caller) | HP 16 | AC 14/10/14 | Initiative +0 | Perception +11 | Fort +5 (+7) Ref +0 Will +8 (+10)

They’re legal but I think they are probably over your purchase limit.

You can only buy goods up to a value set by your prestige.
However, you can go over this value if your purchase is on a chronicle which you earned.

Aha. I should have guessed there were more rules on this. Thanks for keeping me honest!

Then Castinus' smugness will be derived from a wand of endure elements instead, via some judicious prestige point spending.

Castinus is Level 2 so he has at least 3 PP and up to 10 PP. How many does he need to purchase a 1250 gp item?

Those boots are 2500gp to buy.

1250 is the construction cost. And PFS does not allow item crafting.

It’s not a matter of prestige, but of fame.

Castinus, I already got a wand of endure elements. Save your pp.

Oh ok I thought it was PP. So if I had 10 fame after the last game, did I have enough for the boots?

Silver Crusade

LG Cleric (Herald Caller) | HP 16 | AC 14/10/14 | Initiative +0 | Perception +11 | Fort +5 (+7) Ref +0 Will +8 (+10)

It’s in the PFS Organised Play Guide.

I think it’s 9 Fame for items up to 1500
13 Fame for items up to 3000

There’s no sliding scale, just tiers.

Out of curiosity, was the "Waggi" referenced in the recruitment post an Ulfen ranger playing in an Oathbreaker's Die game?

We could have used him. :)

That is exactly the Waggi referenced. He was one of the first members of the ongoing party.

And yes...he would have been useful.

Will do. Thanks for letting us know and here's hoping work slows down, soon.

So, an encounter like this can languish and wander for a while, especially in PbP.

To negate that, everyone can vote on what you want to do. The options are hand Uliyara over or roll for initiative.

Feel free to vote here or in the Gameplay thread. The first choice to get 3 will be what we go with.

But don't feel like you have to vote, yet. If you want to wait to hear more from either side, that's fine, too.

On a separate subject, I saw the new Terminator film last night. V good - well above the trashy level of the last few iterations. A good successor to T2.

I will go the direction of my sense motive, leaning toward initiative unless something really funny comes out of that check

Also- why the heck is Kal the rational one who rolled a SM? Lord knows he would rather do what would be the best of kicks and giggles.

It's a Magical Beast. I would say you could sense motive on anything talking to see if it's lying.

I would probably let someone use it to try to figure out an animal's intentions, as well, i.e. is it mad? Hurt? Happy?


Storming the Diamond Gate Games I've Played (Session Tracker)

Hey guys...there are no more 1-5 Hao Jin Tapestry scenarios and I'm pretty sure that Castinus and Kal will still be 2nd level when this one is over.

I think you'll be at 2.2, though. Let me know if that's correct.

Also let me know what you'd like to do for filler, if anything.

I'm thinking We Be Goblins Too. It's one I've been interested in. But I'm open to suggestions.

Castinus will be 3rd level if we earn an xp in this game assuming he survives! He has played one PFS scenario face to face, 'Fallen Family, Broken Name' meaning he is on 5 xp right now.

I'd be delighted if you were happy to continue GMing; I'd prefer to continue w Castinus but equally would be happy to switch to something else (even goblins!) if that's what you wanted to do.

As an alternate suggestion... might you consider DMing a PFS second edition game? I am running in-person PF2E Plaguestone and then either Age of Ashes or the new AP out in Jan, and have yet to play 2E as a player.

Quensha will be at 2.2 as well.

If you are willing to carry on GMing, that would be great.
What level is Bocke?

NG Human Male Inquisitor (Nethys) 1 [AC 18 (T 14, FF 14) | HP 10/10 | F +4, R +5, W +5 | Init +4, Perception +6]

Bocke will still be 1st after this adventure. I could play a pregen if the next adventure were not 1-5, and Bocke could still get the credit.

| Sermonic Performance: 8/8 rounds Human Evangelist 2 AC 15 (T:11/ FF14) HP:15/15 | F:+4/ R:+1/ W:+7 | Init: +3 | Perception: +10

Any of that sounds good. I have only played We Be Goblins Free.


Storming the Diamond Gate Games I've Played (Session Tracker)

Ok, it sounds like, unless Kal is different, only Castinus will be 3rd level after this adventure. And...even if Kal will be 3rd, they will be the only 2.

I'll make plans to run We Be Goblins Too, next and that will get more folks up to 3rd for Storming the Diamond Gate, which is the first 3rd-7th tier adventure dealing with the tapestry. Bocke can stick around with a pregen for that (although at some point he'll have to play other things to get that missing XP to catch up. He could, conceivably completely skip level 4, though.)

As far as second edition goes, I have not played. I expect to get the core rulebook on Tuesday but will need to play a bit before I'll feel comfortable running anything.

Great! So what are the requirements for WBGT then? Goblin, I guess, but anything else?

It's 4 2nd level Pre-gens. You don't have to bring your own goblin. I'll actually have to look to see if you CAN bring your own or if you can play with more than 4 people.

Just to make sure things are clear: We're close-ish to done with this scenario, over the half way mark for sure, but have at least a couple more weeks unless things go much faster than I anticipate.

But, I volunteered to run a Kobold Confirmation and have a gift certificate I'm using so I wanted to buy the next scenario I'm running for this group, too and needed to figure out what it was going to be.

Also, regarding our current game (this one,) if everyone can start keeping their tokens where they want their characters to be on the map, I'd appreciate it.

I am GMing two games and can probably leap forward a few XP in Jan/Feb. But I also have a 2nd level oracle. I had primarily been using him for live play, but there's a dwindling number of live 1e opportunities, which means if I were to apply the GM credit, I could have a level 3.

I also have a 5th level alchemist, but he's in the sweet spot of being able to play 1-5, 3-7, and 5-9 so I don't want to lock him up with online play.

Kal has a GM credit, so he will be 3 after this session as well.

I am good for whatever. I have a level 2 druid that I could always swap out for Kal- if that makes everything easier.

I have never played any of the "we be goblins" series, but would be happy to do so.

After We Be Goblins Too, Fiata will still be 2nd level. However, I have a 3rd level and a couple of 4th level characters that I could switch to if that makes things any easier.
