This is the Discussion thread for PaizoCon 2022 Starfinder Bounty #2 - Test Flight (Author table). If you're already part of the game on Warhorn, come on in and say hello!

Bounty 2 Sign-In Sheet!

Mike's PbP "Table Rules" -

0 - RL > Game. No other rules trump rule 0! :D

1 - I'd like it if everyone posted once a day Mon-Fri. Friday night through Sunday night is eh-whatever (I am in US Eastern Time, for reference, currently UTC -04). I'll try to post when I can over weekends, but I know people have lives and won't always be online, so no worries. My local lodge's "game nights" are Sunday-Monday, so my GM posts on those days won't be until very late in the evening.

2 - If you don't post in the middle of an "action" scene for a day, you get skipped once (or botted if your action would be super obvious or you leave a note to me or another player "proxying" your character). If you don't post a second time, you get "botted" by me to do something simple (usually just attack or aid another). If we get into the 3-5 range, I'll probably drop you a line off-list to see what's up. If it goes on too long...well, I hate dropping people from games, but it unfortunately happens :(

3 - When you've got a saving throw to make, please roll that first before posting any other actions/rolls (unless it can occur before the save).

4 - Feel free to roll perception whenever you want. If you want to use rerolls before learning the result of the roll, feel free to set conditional statements (i.e. "if that's a failure on X, I'll reroll"), and so on.

5 - Have fun! Rule 5 trumps all other rules! :P

~~~~~

Thanks very much, and I look forward to running this game for you! :)

Just posting this for...no reason whatsoever

GM Instructions for Starship Combat: Because this is PbP and Ship combat can be somewhat slow, I'm going to allow everyone to declare actions and make rolls at once. However, in copying another great GM's idea that I've seen, I'm going to ask that all of your dice rolls be kept behind [spoiler ] tags. When declaring your actions, though, please write those so your companions can see them (to allow you to work together with what each other are doing), and also feel free to post as many contingencies as you'd like, using a similar format as below.

~~~~~

Example:

Phase: Helm
Role: Pilot
Action: If our ship is forced to move first, I will attempt the "Evade" maneuver to increase our AC/TL and then try to get around very wide to the "south" of target X, making sure our front arc is facing it. If we can move second, I will instead attempt to increase our maneuverability to accomplish the same thing while making sure to not end up adjacent to the enemy.

Pilot (You can all peek at this spoiler since it's an example) Rolls:
Pilot Initiative: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (3) + 6 = 9
Evade DC 10 + 1.5 x Tier = DC 13
Evade Stunt: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (18) + 5 = 23

~~~~~

Exception:

Because you all know the DCs that you are rolling for, if you succeed at taking an action that has an effect for a crew-member in a phase of starship combat that occurs after the one you act in, you may edit your post (or make a second post if you'd rather do it that way) to indicate such.

Example 1: The Engineer successfully diverts power to the shields (let's say +6 shields). The Engineer can post this visibly so that the Science Officer knows how many shield points they have to play with should they decide to utilize the "Balance" action during the Helm phase.

Example 2: The Science Officer wants to move all your shields to one quadrant to fend off an enemy - they can either tell the Pilot that they are doing so or ask the pilot to set them up to do things that way. Alternatively, the Science Officer can make their post with a details on how they want to move the shields once they see the positions of the enemy ship(s) in relation to theirs.

I know this is a lot to take in all at once. If you want a more thorough look at the Starship rules you can find them on the Paizo SRD site.

Welcome, all! I figure I'll start us off either when I see everyone signed in or tomorrow, whichever comes first :)

It has been brought to my attention that I was accidentally bringing an illegal character so here is an Iseph clone for all y'all instead :)

Just fyi, I had something come up last night when I was planning on moving this forward, and I now need to crash in bed for a few hours. I will pick this up as soon as I'm awake. Apologies for the delay.

No worries - hope you get some rest!

Yep, life comes first.

Since I know it will come up, Kalhoun has Diplomacy, Piloting and Gunnery at +9, and Acrobatics at +7, so he should be fine in any role that is not technical or magical.

Also, before I forget! This being part of PaizoCon means that we all get to make a roll to win a Paizo Gift Certificate! I'd like everybody to roll an unmodified 1d20. On a 19-20, you win!

Everybody must roll by this time on Friday morning (~8am US Eastern time). If you don't, I'll be rolling for you (so long as you're already active in the game).

Best of luck to everyone!

Does my personal luck continue?: 1d20 ⇒ 8
(Yep)

Daddy needs a new pair of boons: 1d20 ⇒ 6

Hey all, sorry about the radio silence. My work campus ended up having to on quarantine and, well, sudden pretend promotions aren't fun.

I can either drop or jump in as y'all want seeing as it looks like gameplay has barely hit the briefing. The next week will likely be a bit hit and miss though as I continue to be stuck in charge.

This bounty doesn't take too long to run, so I leave it entirely up to you. RL > Game, always, so please do what you need to for you!

T'Krunch fancies himself the Galley Officer, but could handle Science well or Engineering.

Looking over the character sheets and posts, I think our best starting arrangement is:

Captain: Voltaire
Pilot: Iseph
Engineer: Kizilonoz
Science Officer: T'Krunch
Gunner: Kalhoun

This was not the hardest group to arrange. Did the Society actually send an appropriate group for once?

Nope. These bounties are technically jobs open to anyone (though for some reason, they do attract a lot of Society members)! ; P

As for starship roles, what you proposed works for me.

sounds like a plan

I need to apologize for not posting over the last few days. I've been dealing with an emergency with my cat's health. You have my word that I will have a full update posted within the next few hours.

Things with my cat are unfortunately not getting any better, plus other RL stuff over the weekend, but we should be good to go now. Look for a post shortly. Sorry again.

No problem - life tends to have that effect. Hope things are leveling out for you!

All chronicles have been sent!
(Check your email spam folders just in case since I sent it to myself and BCC'd them to all of you)

Again, thank you for playing! I hope you all enjoyed! I'll leave the game threads open for a bit in case you want to keep RP going or have any questions for me.

Thank you all for playing in PbP at PaizoCon! :)

Hope to share a table with each of you soon.
