You are able to locate a good area to get the station which has all the components Tradock was looking for as well as some additional presents he felt like picking up. All in all you have 7 packages of gear to carry. Each taking up one bulk and one hand (or similar appendage)to carry.

Tradock is playing with his squox on a lead in a near by green while you get the last of the packages.

Place yourselves anywhere you would like on the map and let me know who is carrying how many packages. The area is busy and crowded with other shoppers so moving around is all difficult terrain as well as the crowd is providing soft cover for anyone not adjacent.

Coming somewhat late to this, I would like to add my favor for either making it only one session or one session that a VC has to observe. The other two sessions can be VLs or other 5-splater.

Also if you are going to require three, then I would suggest (after GenCon and Pax unplugged) to allow for GMs to request reviews when they sign up for the big conventions. Also if you allow for other 5-splaters and VLs to review, they can volunteer a review slot as well for those cons.

Never mind. I am out for now. My Techo is only 2 so I will let others jump in and will work on them later. Seems like I currently have nothing in the 3-4 range :)

Also I am heading to Origins so that will slow down my postings.

Any word on the maps for this?

Vargrant Harsk misses, but Li'l and Snooty hack at sucessfully, and Sexy turns the sparkle lizard in to a sishkabob . Tasty and spicy!

With a brief multi-colored flash the combat ends.

All that is left is the quiet drip of the leaking wall.

And so it Begins

You are in Absalom, the mighty City at the Center of the World, and you’ve always longed to explore one of the countless ruins of failed conquerors that litter the plains outside the city’s walls.

You’ve heard rumors that one of the sealed siege castles has been laid open by a minor earthquake. Word on the street is that no one has yet entered the tower, which folks are calling the “Fallen Fortress.” What better way to start a life of excitement and adventure than by exploring its long-abandoned, dusty halls and perhaps claiming its ancient treasures?

You get a notice to meet at the Wayward Finder. A man with a noticeable limp walks in and towards you. He clothing would be considered the height of fashion, about a century ago. He voice is low and wispy with a strong Ustalavian accent. "Oh good, many of you have responded to my notice. Yes? Well, it is still quite simple. There is a crumbling tower near hear that has long been abandoned, that has an artifact of significant importance. A rare and valuable McGuffin. I would go myself, my adventuring days are behind me." He notions towards his left leg. "But, you are all young, healthy, and uncursed. You should have no problems. Aside from any other spoils you find, I offer you this sum of gold for return of the valuable McGuffin."

Nurmair picks up the orb and feels slightly empowered.

You feel a dark warm power and a voice or feeling of "Yes" is in your head. And you feel like making your way towards finishing this place.

It was a lot of fun. And I will put it down to do again for next year. Unless I can swing PaizoCon. But then I could try to do both.

Just to put it out there. is there any chance of a tier 5-6 table being added for the Starfinder Special?

You can put me down for a level 1 or 2 something depending how July goes.

IF there is still room, I would like to bring in my Ysoki rifleman.

New Stars, New Lodge!

If they do as much as they did with Pathfinder Beta to 1E, I should be fine. I expect much discussion and change from the published playtest to the final

A few thoughts.

I liked the idea of the Unchained action economy. I wanted to try it.

I like the Unchained NPC/Monster rules. It feels a little wonky at level 1-2 in Starfinder, but for the most part it seems to play out fine. Yes the Mobs have much higher to-hit bonuses, but I have yet to have anyone die in SFS.

I am a little mifted about restarting stars again.

I will add to Hmm's rant a bit.

I came back to PFS after missing seasons 3 though 6. When I saw one of my "newbie" players from San Diego get her 5th star a few years ago, I felt like I should have gotten mine as well. So I decided to work on it. I am spitting distance to my 4th now, and have a plan to get 5th elegable by Origins or PaizonCon 2019.

Not this is sort of a bit of a blow. The 150 tables are still doable, but it is the special requirement that still requires planning.

I am not sure if I will continue to crank out another 50 PFS tables over the next 14 months, or will I get my 4th star and just work on Starfinder novas. I like the "badge of honor" that goes with the stars. I just would have like some more time to relish in it before starting over again :)

Ok. The Gameplay is up Go in and intro yourself.

Mostly ready to go. Still figuring out my last relvaltion for level 4

If you have the boon, it would go before your first mission. Normally for such boons they are my "0" Chronicle.

Well I would like to throw my hat in the ring:

For this I have a Vesk Technomancer. Born and raised on Absolom station so a "second generation" type thinking, knows some of his racial history, but is much more cosmopolitan. He is also on the small side for a vesk, but still his wiry and strong.

He was studying and teaching at the Arcanarium until recently. There was an incident involving a gnome and high energy magic. Now his is out and about looking for adventure.

Starship role would be science or engineering.

Side question, can you draw your weapon during a spring attack or shot on the run

Scarab Sages

Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Companion Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

I found the AA to be:


  • One part Bestiary
  • One part Race Guide
  • One Campaign info
  • Some equipment
  • DRAGONS WITH FRIKN' LASER CANNONS!
  • Guideline to make your own creatures

If you have a base attack bonus of +1 or higher, you can combine drawing or sheathing a weapon or weapon-like object with moving up to your speed as a single move action.

The phrase "moving up to your speed" and that the actual move action to move is "Move your speed" is what makes me think that you can draw an a weapon with the trick attack.

The trick attack says:

Quote:


As a full action, you can move up to your speed. Whether
or not you moved, you can then make an attack with a melee
weapon with the operative special property or with any small
arm.

It comes down to the fact does a "Full Action" contain a Standard, Move and swift "action" or is a Full action its own thing.

Awwww, just saw this - that makes me the reserve sign-up. I hope everyone listed gets to play... but if they dont... *hopeful finger crossings*

If you are quick you can take my slot, it has not started. I just backed out since I have a chance to play it in person.

I did some "back of the napkin" math with armor.

Freebooter I: 750 (similar to the mithril Chain shirt)
Freebooter II: 4720 (similar to +1 upgrade to armor, Nat AC, and deflection)
Freebooter III: 16,900 (similar to +1 to +2 upgrade cost of armor, Nat Ac, and deflection)

So the Sell back isn't as important, you are just left with extra "backup" equipment.

Scarab Sages

Just found a local in person table. So you can replace me with one of the wait listed for "Claim to Slavation" since we have not started

The contemplative is one of the few races with a -2 Con. And with a -2 Str as well I don't see many front line ones

Scarab Sages

Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Companion Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Also it is easy to bring up after the fact with level boosts.

The one extra Stamina at level one isn't much, but 5 at level 5 is half a dies worth

Also I wanted to play the Adventure Path outside the context of Society Play. But with the current demand versus supply, people are consuming it as part of their Society Play.

Scarab Sages

Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Companion Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

The current player character creation rules do not allow for any attribute to start above 18. So is there any real benefit of a +4 Stat over a +2 Stat?

Granted, some races like the contemplative have 2 -2 stats, so you could opt for two 8s and have some higher others. But then 8 Con would be "interesting"

Are undead and constructs immune to non-lethal damage in Starfinder? (I'm still waiting for Alien Archive PDF to be purchasable, so I don't know what's in "undead immunities", even after running an SFS mod that had undead in it.)

Yes.

Scarab Sages

Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Companion Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

It is in the rules (p 250) that 0 hp can just mean the target is dying for 3 rounds. So you can "take them in alive"

Except for undead, constructs, and similar creature types that are destroyed sst 0 hp

It's no longer necessary to have a healer, which I think is great. Those parties with healers can chug along harder and faster than those without.

Ha, I just had the funny image of DocWagon from Shadowrun. Having a healbot on speed-dial when you absolutely need one!
I was thinking of the Defender class back in the old City of Heroes MMO. Don't call them healers if you didn't want a fight (and a sudden loss of all those wonderful buffs).

I always said in CoH, "Preventing Damage is just as good as healing it."

There are lots of "holes" in the weapons charts in the CRB.

As Luke mentioned, there is a set of Laser Sniper Rifles in the AA. The Adventure Paths are also introducing new equipment.

So in about a year there should be more options.

Howdy

So for claim to salvation my preference is the Technomancy then the Mystic.
