[PFS1e] GM Deussu's #6-05 Slave Ships of Absalom CORE (Inactive)

Game Master Deussu

Maps, portraits, etc.


A Pathfinder Society 1st Edition Scenario designed for levels 1-5.

The metropolis of Absalom promotes commerce in its many forms, and although slavery is legal, it is increasingly common for citizens to frown on the institution. The practice becomes more questionable when an ally of the Pathfinder Society traces an attempt at supernatural surveillance through a slave. Sent as independent sleuths, the PCs must track down the source of this espionage, which takes them deep into underbelly of one of Absalom’s darkest industries.

Content in “Slave Ships of Absalom” also contributes directly to the ongoing storylines of the Liberty’s Edge and Sovereign Court factions.

Written by Mark Garringer.

Before applying to the scenario, I urge everyone joining to read Doomed Hero's Guide to PbP and Painlord's Advanced Play-by-Post if they haven't already. They have been sited to be the cornerstones of PbP guidelines.

During the game I will utilise Google Slides to an extent to provide portraits for NPCs, maps for combat, and a place for players to share their own notes for everyone to see. Moving a token on the slide with a mobile device might be a PITA, so describing your actions in length is a good way of getting around that. You can also ask someone else to move the token to a desired spot.

I expect myself to be able to post from Monday to Friday on a regular basis, but weekends are more irregular. I live in UTC+2 time zone, so anyone in the USA might see me post in the afternoon or late at night. If you know of an upcoming event or issue that hinders you from posting, please let me and the other players know.

Lastly, I initially considered making this a CORE campaign game. If there is enough players wishing for such a game, I will gladly switch to CORE.

If there are any other questions, please post them here.

Liberty's Edge

If you go Core and upper tier, Will Hawk (lvl 5) will gladly signup for this crew. I have already played this (long ago) in standard. He is a member of Liberty's Edge.

Silver Crusade

Would this be a module where a bard would do well? I was thinking of making a magus or a druid but the reviews of the module on Paizo's website indicate it's more of a social module.

Oh yes, this scenario has a sizable number of named NPCs. Most of which are just on the receiving end of a sword's blade, but still... named!

Dark Archive

Sylvester would be happy to join a upper tier (4-5) core adventure with Will Hawk. The opportunity to play in core games is pretty limited now. :)

Grand Lodge

dotting for interest in standard..

Sovereign Court

Ny'a would be interested if this ends up as a CORE game! I've played it in standard with a Liberty's Edge PC; I'd love to experience the Sovereign Court end of things this time around.

Thanks for offering!

Dark Archive

So far in this thread: 3 for Core, 1 for Standard and 1 that has not declared. :)

It does seem like this will change into a CORE game.

We still need more players to apply. There's time, though.

All my Core characters are too high but if you need a seat filler I can build something real quick or play a pregen if it is tier 3 - 4.

Sovereign Court


posting in for interest in CORE>

There is far more interest in CORE games, so I'll transform this into a CORE game too. It will likely go to the higher 4-5 tier.

Sorry, grimdog73. Of course, it's never impossible to create a 1st-level character to jump in, if you like.

I'll open up the discussion and gameplay threads. Please dot in both, those who are applying.

Silver Crusade

I've got this Core Level 3 Fighter, if there's still room :)

(I'll go ahead and post my application in the Discussion thread just in case, but ignore it if you have enough players already!)

So far the roster looks like this:

GM Fuzzfoot's Will Hawk
Shadow Dragon's ???
Mage of the Wyrmkin's Sylvester Solstar
Zin Z'arin's Ny'a
nightdeath's Florin Leogil
Ythiel's Erica Zufan

If all six post to the discussion first, we'll good to go.

Most certainly! Note though that nearly all other characters are around level 3 to 5. If this is okay with you, welcome aboard!

If an empty spot opens up I could join with the Kyra pregen.

The remaining spot is yours. I've tried contacting Zin Z'arin for a while now, but haven't heard anything.

I'm ready to push the game onwards once you've posted.
