Hello! Welcome to my table. Before we start, please do the following:

Please complete the macros linked at the top of the page. This will be used for initiative and secret rolls.

Please also post your token to the slides and post your position in the marching order. The slides are also linked at the top of the page.

As per the Organized Play Foundation Community Standards, each player must decide if they will allow their characters to be damaged by friendly fire (usually via splash damage). In keeping with the “Explore, Report, Cooperate” motto of the Pathfinder Society, engaging in non-consensual character-versus-character conflict is prohibited. While accidental friendly fire happens due to missed attack rolls or other factors, players must obtain the consent of other players before deliberately including fellow PCs in damaging effects. This rule does not apply in situations where a character is not acting of their own free will, such as if they’re being mind-controlled by an NPC and forced to attack a fellow Pathfinder.

You may select a consumable item from the Pathfinder Provisions list. These used to be the school items you get prior to starting an adventure. This applies to Scenarios only. Quests and bounties do not receive provisions.

No pathfinder provisions for us since this is a Quest. right?

Thanks for the invite, GM.

I have 2 GM Glyphs, so I will give Hero Points to the lowest leveled teammates. I think that's Kosh Bracken and Loquinor Brightcoral.

I'll take a minor healing potion as my Pathfinder Provision.

I use a custom icon on Google Maps.
>Icon<

GM, I have >Four Winds<, which allows 4 teammates to immediately Stride half their speed as a free action. Given this is PbP, that would pretty much halt the game while waiting for it to resolve. I suggest you adjudicate it so my teammates can Stride as their first action of their turn.

Hi Loquinor Brightcoral! I'm a water/air kineticist. Good to see a fellow water kin.

I have 2 glyphs as well.

I think you are the only other water bender this character has adventured with Cirri. I think we have adventured together before but I am not sure if it is with this character.

I think I have everything filled out, the Initiative though should be +5 and not +9

Macros are filled out. Filling out Slides presently.

I have 2 Glyphs, but I don't recall if Glyphs are or are not used in Quests.

I’m having an issue with posting pics on slides. This is the third adventure where this has happened. Instead of pasting, the page refreshes.

Is this a known problem? Is there a solution for it?

I had problems doing the same in another game, Kosh.

Cirri, how do you like playing a dual gate bender?

This character really benefits from control over water and air, and note much else. I wish sonic control existed, or I'd fit that in too. At some point Cirri will be Water/Air/Metal, probably at level 5 as PFS is slow.

Dual gates let you control multiple elements at once. Your blasts are much more versatile right out the gate for getting around weaknesses and resistances.

This build is a quasi caster and will get her hands on scrolls, wands and staves that use these elements. It was always difficult for me to justify an elemental specialist using the core classes, so it's nice to be forced to.

I'm playing a Fire/Metal kineticist in an IRL game, he's much more offensive and armors up before shooting or smashing in 1 of 6 elements. Definitely need Safe Elements on him, though. Cirri is more supportive so that's not as needed.

How is solo water going so far? Water bending is very versatile in terms of attacks, support and movement. It's hard to focus!

Are you doing a Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V from Windows? I've never had an issue but I've just dragged and dropped my picture in the slides. Google introduced keyboard shortcuts recently and you might be entering a key combination for 'refresh'...

I’m doing a Copy/Paste from an iPad. It’s been working fine for the past few years, but stopped last week.

There was a change in the app where you need to Double-Tap to enter edit mode first. I don't know if that is the source of your frustration.

I like it, it is kind of a passive element but I like the heals and deflection.

Yep... In my case the NT Bootloader somehow stopped loading... then again, my disk is pretty old... It's a 500GB disk, if any still exist! :)

I was going to correct myself and say that my original drive is actually 320 GB (probably from an old XP box) but it appears yours is even older... The BIOS this morning showed that I replaced the disk just in time because it's about to become a rather large paperweight... :)

Do you think it would be a good idea to get coral armor?

>Coral Armor<

It's Medium proficiency, so you're untrained in it. You'd have to spend a general feat to get it started. It also lowers your speed a bit, which isn't too big of a deal as you can rely more on ranged attacks anyway. It also requires +2 Strength to avoid Check Penalties, so unless you're going to do melee it seems like a waste.

Its main advantage is that it works well underwater. There is a PFS scenario that is completely underwater (The Crashing Wave, I think?) but otherwise most scenarios stay out of the water.

Take it if Lorqinor would in character go underwater a lot, but for optimization it's not needed.

That's my opinion, anyway.

Also, if you can wear it without penalty, it provides no additional benefit but cost 3x as much as hide armor. Its skeletal property is inferior to plate or composite.

Thank you both for this information

There is an atunner magic item that a kineticist can get at 3rd level, correct?

Cirri, your last post in game reminded me of Storm from the 90's X-Men cartoon!

Cirri often calls upon her siren ancestors when channeling.

GM can adjudicate how Four Winds works. Technically you have to move when Cirri uses it, but that doesn't really work in Play by Post.

It's probably easier in PbP to give everyone a free action to Stride half their feet, provided it's the first action.

Ya, not everything translates well from one format to another.

Moved on map.

Changing it to a free action at the beginning of the turn would interfere with Drifter's initial deed.
