Leaders in Liberty 2

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Back in July, the organized play team launched an exciting contest called Leaders in Liberty to name and detail a new character in Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild canon. We read the entries, narrowed it down to our top picks, and invited the community to vote on the best candidate. In mid October we had our winner, Karisa Starsight as presented by Sam Sampson!

When we first launched the contest, we were a little coy about exactly how this character might feature in the campaign. We were, after all, several weeks away from releasing Pathfinder Society Scenario #9-02: A Case of Missing Persons, which provides considerably more context. If you haven't played it yet, I both strongly encourage that you do so, and I will be providing only the slimmest spoilers (you can see more in the spoil-tagged section below). Namely, Major Colson Maldris is not currently available to provide the Liberty's Edge faction the necessary guidance and oversight. While this faction is likely one of the best equipped to operate without a leader, we want to bring in someone who can not only provide leadership in the difficult time, but also guide the faction's vision and steer its reforms in the wake of Maldris's rather spotty legacy.

Pathfinder Society Scenario #9-02 Spoiler:

Major Colson Maldris has gone missing, and it seems he's enlisted some very questionable allies. Without an appointed leader, the Liberty's Edge faction needs someone to keep the operation running smoothly and coordinate the hunt for Maldris.

That's right, we're asking you to help pick a faction leader.

We have two candidates, whose backstories I'll summarize below along with a snapshot of their strengths and style. The first is Leaders in Liberty contest winner Karisa Starsight, who you can read about in more detail in this September blog. The second is Tamrin Credence, a halfling smuggler and freelance freedom fighter. Let's meet them both.

Karisa Starsight

The slaver Kolm Redarax found the infant Karisa aboard a derelict Bonuwat ship, and he was so taken by her unexplained presence and strikingly blue eyes that he adopted her as his daughter. She worked hard aboard that ship, tending to the slaves her adoptive father shuttled from port to port. Whereas he saw these souls as chattel, she quietly grew to respect and pity them. As she reached adulthood, Karisa struggled between her love and loyalty for her father and the plights of the people he bought and sold.

Several years ago, Andoren privateers known as the Gray Corsairs assaulted their ship, subduing the crew and freeing the slaves. When the Corsairs' captain was on the verge of slaying Redarax, Karisa intervened, swearing her own life, service, and freedom to Andoran in exchange for his life. Not want to condemn the young woman to anything resembling slavery, the captain provided a different offer: she could instead apprentice to an upstanding Eagle Knight, and Redarax would live out his sentence in an Andoren prison. Karisa eagerly accepted.

Her mentor was none other than Major Colson Maldris, and she has excelled as his aide. Over the past year, her duties have more resembled those of a steward, overseeing some of the Liberty's Edge faction's operations while Maldris traveled farther afield. Even so, there's a side of Maldris that she's only now uncovering as she tries to find his current whereabouts and holds together the initiatives he set in motion. All the while she wonders at the irony that no matter his morals, Karisa's father is in chains while she promotes liberty in the Inner Sea region and beyond.

Strengths: Karisa Starsight has a much more intimate familiarity with the faction's operations, which inclines her toward making changes and executing missions "within the system" while also watching for hypocrisies that undermine the faction's goals. She has solid connections within the Eagle Knights without being one herself. She's also the more self-reflective candidate, likely to examine the faction's moral pillars and assess how the faction could do better. Even so, her childhood on the seas leaves her ready to tackle threats head-on when needed.

Tamrin Credence

Trained as a sommelier, butler, and shopping assistant, the halfling now known as Tamrin Credence spent his first 26 years as a Chelish slave, albeit a well-treated one. When a tiller (a member of the halfling liberation group called the Bellflower Network) infiltrated the estate and laid plans to lead a few halfling slaves to freedom, Tamrin made a counter-offer: he would create a distraction so the tiller could escape with twice as many souls. The plan worked, albeit at a cost. By the time the tiller returned to lead him out of Cheliax, the halfling butler had received many scars for his deception.

Tamrin Credence is a self-styled name that the halfling adopted in the decade since, both to distance him emotionally from his subjugated past and to create a new identity that wouldn't lead to his recapture. He's continued to assist the Bellflower Network as a spy and supplier, often leading him into dangerous territory or treacherous relationships. Although he's infiltrated and worked with the Aspis Consortium and Cheliax's port authorities to this end, his most infamous rivalry is that with Zarta Dralneen, whom he regularly undermined while she served Cheliax as that nation's liaison to the Pathfinder Society. Only once she fell from Cheliax's good graces, suffered unforgiveable offenses by her former allies, and sought refuge with the Society did the two agents begin finding common ground. They've now worked together on coordinating several missions, though years of thwarting each other's ambitions leave them prone to verbally sniping at each other over unresolved gripes they're yet to bury.

Tamrin's experience with the Liberty's Edge faction is modest, having only worked with Major Colson Maldris a few times before the former began more concerted collaboration in the past 18 months. Even so, he's a proud "liberator of humanoid assets" with criminal and business contacts in dozens of cities. What he lacks in faction experience, he makes up for in gutsiness, survivability, cunning, and a willingness to lead from the front as needed.

Strengths: Tamrin Credence is a pragmatic individual who doesn't mind breaking a few unreasonable rules if he can mitigate the harm to innocent bystanders and maximize the benefit for oppressed people. He's witnessed the dark underbelly of several infamous operations firsthand, and he knows that no matter how seductive those groups might seem at times, they're ultimately immoral. These experiences have left him hardened against corruption, and he takes a more decisive stance on correcting the faction's embarrassing past misdeeds. He has strong Bellflower Network connections, though he would broaden his agenda considerably if made the leader of Liberty's Edge.

Voting

Voting begins now! Let us know which of these two candidates should step up to lead the Liberty's Edge faction in Major Colson Maldris's absence. You'll have three weeks to pick your favorite candidate, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday, December 13. Our plan is to feature both of these characters at least once, so even the candidate that doesn't receive the most votes will still play a role in a future scenario. We're also looking forward to pursuing more of the Liberty's Edge storyline later in Season 9, discovering just what Maldris has set in motion!

Huzzah!

Liberty's Edge **** Venture-Agent, Indiana—Hammond

I will cast my ballot in favor of Karisa Starsight. Both candidates have very interesting backstories and should be featured in future products.

Karisa Starsight, to my mind, has the inside knowledge to reform Liberty's Edge. She is familiar with the evils of slavery, but also seems to believe in mercy and redemption. She also sets up the possibility of problems with her adoptive father's past and her own mysterious origins catching up with her.

As someone who plays several Liberty's Edge characters, I have had my characters check out some faction missions before deciding what to do. (I have not played every scenario, but I am aware of the issues in what I have not played.) Many of my characters try to balance their lawful nature with a belief in liberty. (I believe that Lawful Good and Lawful Neutral characters who follow either their faiths or Common Rule as a philosophy should be able to find a home within the faction.)

I would have no problem if Colson Maldris died while trying to achieve some redemption for his misdeeds and having both Karis Starsight and Tamrin Credence lead the Liberty's Edge faction. {Redemption for Maldris is possible, but it should take more than an atonement spell.) I look forward to seeing how people vote. We should have more interesting choices like this.

A small fox clambers on top of the voting box, carrying a sack who's bottom glistens wetly and in true Andoran fashion has a few words to say. A surprisingly deep gravely voice booms out from the gray bundle of fluff, echoing across the square

"We've had more than enough "coalitions" and schmoozing. Maldris' "little black book" could fill four libraries. And that's fine. But what has he DONE? What has that gotten us? Not a damned thing I've ever seen."

Grr pauses to move aside as someone casts their vote into the box. Andorans have seen better, and weirder, orations and keep voting as he paces across the ballots to avoid being in anyone's way.

"On the other hand we have someone that's seen slavery, not just looked at it. That knows what they're up against. That's known the price for others freedom , would and HAS paid that price themselves. Someone's who's gains in freedom can be measured in people, not paper. That's why I'm voting for Tamrin Credence. To show slavers what the edge of liberty looks like, up close and personal."

He drops the sack into the box to cast his ballot.

A weathered tengu squints at Karisa and then Tamrin, nodding at them both politely before dropping his vote in.

"Votes should be private." he offers in a gravely tone, then departs.

I've cast my ballot for Tamrin. Several aspects of this character are appealing to me, not least of which include the reduced ties to Andoran and the Eagle Knights. I enjoy the fact that he clearly has opinions about the Society and its members. He's similarly going to provoke opinions from PCs, including at least one of mine.

Marsest shifts his weight and sighs.

"He's not here now though so that's not relevant. Karisa gets my vote if we're required to pick just one candidate, but both have major strengths that would lead me to believe collaboration would be the most effective way forward."

They're both very interesting characters who would make excellent leaders, but of the two Karisa Starsight stands out to me as the one more likely to be able to keep the Liberty's Edge ship afloat through the coming storms, keep its people safe, get to the bottom of whats going on and ensure the faction can keep on doing what it does best.

Tamrin sounds like an excellent field agent and operative but not necessarily someone who would be the best 'big picture' leader for juggling dozens of operations throughout the Inner Sea. Plus the fact that he's undermined a faction leader in the past and possibly even put Pathfinders lives at risk because of it doesn't scream 'reliable leader'.

I do say, how does a member of the nobility partake their fair share in this vote off event?

Liberty's Edge needs a strong voice. We also need a "face" that will be remembered by those seeking freedom and haunting to those who withhold it!

I vote for Karisa Starsight!

Tamrin brings grit and hard experience, and would help us keep an eye on Zarta. I like that. Still, the merciful nature of Ms Starsight could be a benefit as well. Hmm. Tough choice, if one really must choose. Our own Pathfinder Society is run by a council, or so we are told, why not the people of Liberty's Edge?

Liberty's Edge ****

I like both of them and hope that both continue to be an asset to Liberty's Edge. My vote though must go to Karisa Starsight. Between her training and balanced ways of thinking, she will be able to unite us all and hold us to act in a manner which coincides with the purpose which made the creation of Liberty's Edge a neccesity.

I really appreciate the direction this discussion's going, and it's good to hear that both of these characters have traction. It's entirely appropriate that Liberty's Edge should be voting on these issues.

Two things to remember: First, this voting's open to everyone, even if you don't have a Liberty's Edge PC yet. Second, those who do have a Liberty's Edge PC should remember to download the Season 9 Faction Journal Card, for which participating in the Leaders in Liberty contests/voting is one of the season goals.

Campaign and roleplay on!

"It is a difficult choice, then, that requires careful contemplation and considered thought, not just for our possible pasts, but of our futures to take care.

One is not only choosing the path forward, one is also acknowledging the failures we must learn from.

One of the most important things in learning is perspective. We look upon two candidates with very different perspectives, and we are struck by the youth of one candidate and the strength of another. In any given contest, either might prevail.

Alas that there is no choice of both candidates, one in an administrative role, one in a field operations role.

Tamrin, though, is willing to do what is necessary to protect the innocent and bring freedom to more hearts and minds. In this uncertain age, we need that sort of forward thought.

May all see their own Path to Enlightenment on this matter."

There's a bit of a pause.

"Oh, right, should probably mention... Brother Wei Ji, Aspirant of the Master of Masters, Eagle Knight, from the Home Office."

I voted for Tamrin for a few reasons. The first and foremost is experience. As a Bellflower Tiller he has been fighting the system from the inside for a good while now. Also of note is that he puts further distance between the faction and Maldris’ many misdeeds. Maldris’ skeletons have skeletons in the closet. Lastly, he is a halfing, and halflings are pretty cool.

** Venture-Agent, Russia—Gurevsk aka Dr_stalker

I vote for Karisa Starsight, because Tamrin wasn't interesting NPC. Tamrin's loyality is very questionable. IMHO Tamrin will be more usefull as Cheliax Custom officer.

P.S. IMHO Laria Longoad is the best option for Liberty Edge. She is an Hell's Rebels NPC, but Eando Kline is AP NPC too, and he is important in PFS.

T's sad not to see Junia Dacilane in the list. I hope, she will become the next leader. And I would like to see her in future scenarios.
But.. well.. we need to have the halfling among faction leaders. Not only because they bring good luck. Not just because he's halfling. But because he looks really cool. LE just deserved a good leader.

Tamrin Credence not only has actual first-hand experience as a field agent but he also already donned the mantle of leadership during a recent crisis in Absalom. How many slaves were freed that day?

Right here! In Absalom! Our home!

I'm sorry to say, but the other candidate doesn't seem to have a lot of actual experience in the field or as a leader. However, her contacts and familiarity with the faction's official matters will be useful--when she's working with Tamrin as his second-in-command.

(Also, the Society needs more halflings.)

While Karisa's experience is appealing, the idea of teaming Tamrin up with Zarta for mission briefings is just too good to ignore.

Also, Karisa seems a little "too good to be true," while Tamrin's backstory of a butler/slave-turned-captain is much more appealing to me than slaver's child-turned-captain. I like the pragmatic Tamrin more than I do the schmoozing Karisa. Seems to me that his briefings could play that up a lot more than hers. Plus, he's a Halfling, I have a soft spot for them.

My chosen subject, fellow citizens, is slavery.

I shall see this day and its popular characteristics from the slave's point of view. Standing there identified with the bondman, making his wrongs mine.
I do not hesitate to declare with all my soul that the character and conduct of this continent never looked blacker to me than on this day!

Whether we turn to the declarations of the past or to the professions of the present, the conduct of our nations seem equally hideous and revolting. Avistan is false to the past, false to the present, and solemnly binds herself to be false to the future.

Standing with the God Of Man and the crushed and bleeding slave on this occasion, I will, in the name of humanity which is outraged, in the name of liberty which is fettered, in the name of our constitution and our holy texts which are disregarded and trampled upon, dare to call in question and to denounce, with all the emphasis I can command, everything that serves to perpetuate slavery, the Great Sin and shame of Avistan!

I will NOT equivocate, I will NOT excuse; I will use the severest language I can command; and yet not one word shall escape me that any man, whose judgment is not blinded by prejudice, shall not confess to be right and just.

What, am I to argue that it is wrong to make men brutes, to rob them of their liberty, to work them without wages, to keep them ignorant of their relations to their fellow men, to beat them with sticks, to flay their flesh with the lash, to load their limbs with irons, to hunt them with dogs, to sell them at auction, to sunder their families, to knock out their teeth, to burn their flesh, to starve them into obedience and submission to their masters? Must I argue that a system thus marked with blood, and stained with pollution, is wrong? No! I will not. I have better employment for my time and strength than such arguments would imply.

While ever a single man, woman, or child toils in bondage, our celebrations are a sham; our boasted liberty, an unholy license; our national greatness, swelling vanity; our sounds of rejoicing empty and heartless; our denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; our shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; our prayers and hymns, our sermons and thanksgivings, with all our religious parade and solemnity, are, to the Gods above, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy; a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages.

And that is why I cast my vote, for Tiller Credence.

12\10. Vote for Tamrin.

And cant believe, that just girl from slavery pirate family can be good leader.

Grand Lodge **** Venture-Agent, France—Paris

Voting Karisa Starsight for two reasons :

- She was in confidence to Colson Maldris' plans, and while she doesn't have operational experience, she is better placed to oversee the operation when Tamrin Credence is more on frontline duty and only had indirect involvement with the Liberty's Edge faction. The ability to get above the melee is what a leader may need at times.

- I might see the logic of why the latter might be more suited in that aspect and how he handled his part on tbe Absalom crisis, but for the same reasons it could be dangerous. Being pragmatic and more decisive isn't bad, but I'm holding the Zarta thing against him. Karisa probably will be naive but to clean the dirt of the faction let's not adding more of it even with good intent.

Liberty's Edge *

Of course, my vote was given for Karisa Starsight. From this character you can make a much more interesting hero, it will be such a "dark horse", which no one takes seriously at the beginning, thinking that she is naive and young. For its development it will be much more interesting to observe than just a "bad" halfling.

The way I see it, Tamrin isn't "bad" in any way, aside from allying with some criminal elements for the greater good. He might have a pragmatic outlook, but his backstory is way more gripping to me. I already get a feel of how his mission briefings go, while I have no idea what Karisa's like other than "She's friends with the Eagle Knights."

To be fair though, I like her self-reflecting attitude. The Society could use more of those. Then again, the eternal "action versus inaction"-debate: would you rather wait until you have a clear picture, possibly losing opportunities, or make a firm stand for what you believe in now?

---

Aside from that, I like Tamrin because I can envision him as a combination of the pragmaticism of Aram Zey and Marcos Farabellus' brash "if you have to break some laws, just go for it"-atttiude. He has a clear moral compass I can get behind.
Also, his backstory can lead to some fun scenarios. Old "friends" coming back to haunt him and such. Plus, Bellflower stories!

I've got a couple of Liberty's Edge PFS characters, but don't know a whole lot about Karisa and Tamrin's roles in the faction other than what I've just read.

There are a lot of ways this could affect both characters and further development, but I not only look at now, but the future for the factions in terms of storyline that can result for this decision, for better or worse.

My vote goes to Karisa.

Consider this a vote for Tamrin. Breaking the chains of slavery isn't always glamorous work. You need someone who won't shake at doing something shady to help the greater good, even if it a makes a Paladin sneer.

Besides that, Halfling representation, and non human races in general, is sorely lacking in the society. A vote for Tamrin is a vote for equality!

This is just a temporarily fill in until Maldris returns right? I like the way he was taking things... Which of these two does the Paracountess endorse, maybe she could give our faction some moral guidance...

<Okay roleplaying aside, I gotta go with Tamrin, its not because he has proven leadership and experience in the field as well as getting results. Its not because Karisa seems like a babe in the woods who allowed her sugar coated glasses to hide Maldris' darker side.

While I do agree with everything I said above, at the end of the day, any time Tamrin appears in game and I hold up his homemade face card, it will remind my players of that scenario where at the end I looked at them and told them all that you all did a evil act willingly and without question or hesitation, anyone good must change their alignment to neutral (the sole neutral person protested their acts the whole time and was spared).

Now Tamrin didn't tell them to go off and do what they did, they came up with that on their own... and I will never let them forget that, specially since the mastermind of it was normally the nice person in the party.>

Winding down from his rant, Zomo turns to Tamrin. "Here is a leader that's proven time and time again that he places the mission ahead of his own luxury and pride! Who has been tried! And found made of iron!"

Dropping his vote in the box, he turns one last time to Kasira; "If you're in, I'm out."
