Well, first of all, belated happy Nowruz, GM!
About me: I live in France, and so am in the same timezone as you (will be working just outside of Berlin next month).
- If you know that you will not be able post for a while please inform all of us in advance.
- We will be using Google Slides for maps.
- Please have your profile up to date based on the standard PbP format so that I can see your stats and your abilities.
Thanks for running the game, and, whether I am in or not: good gaming!
A sort of peripheral question (sorry if it is too far from this thread): my GM take was that when the PCs crafted a rifle with UPBs during some downtime (I am talking SFS game) it came with a charged battery (I would have done the same w. bullets).
Did I miss some rule?
More seriously: you probably will have already reported the games for which you accrued the GM credit, giving a PFS/SFS number (said character).
If you have a DM who says this cannot be done because you must own the item, then do not lend the item to the player without a reroll, give it to him.
However, I have never seen anything saying "A reroll can only be used by the person who owns it" (though I mainly only looked those things up in the Guide and on the Perks webpage, but the only thing I remember seeing in all that is that if you own several, you can only use one).
A bit of a different issue, so sorry if this is not the place for it: I am not receiving the correct "tables of credit"for Starfinder Society games I DMed and reported.
I have 16 tables of credit, which corresponds to the scenarios reported so far.
I have scenarios credited before and after the the APs I reported.
Just wondering if others had the same kind of issue?
re. retraining: it is not that expensive when you're no longer low level, and have never died (and thus have a lot of PPs), especially in CORE (ain't much to spend them on).
Hello all Starfinders who play in French.
Black Book Éditions, which is the French based official Paizo partner, launched a crowdfunding-prepurchase event for its translation of Starfinder into French, which is due in the 1st quarter of 2018.
Here is the ---> link <---.
I do not have any stake in this company, do not gain anything in any way by promoting this, and have no idea of the quality of their translation (but they have been the official French Paizo partner for several years, namely with Pathfinder), I am simply putting this here in case anyone playing in French can be interested by what seems to be a cheaper promotional offer of le CRB.
For those outside of France, I did see that they state they have partners to lower the delivery fees in Canada and such.
My thanks that is above all other is to the one who is known here as Ilmakis.
The terror attack in Paris, France, mid-November 2 years ago: 130 people were murdered in the cafés, streets, concert hall.
The first French PFS Convention was scheduled to start the next day.
Then Ilmakis organized a game in his living room early the next morning.
Then the community organized the day, meeting in game shops, people's homes, and running the multi-table special via text messaging.
As Linda said: If you are struggling alone, please reach out and talk to someone you trust. Maybe you feel you will be showing weakness, and be shameful. In reality, most often, others will be proud of you, and probably see you as strong for opening up. Besides, you might just find out this person you trusted also has struggles of their own...
To finish on a lighter note, on seeing Philippe Lam's post here-above, I'd like to thank him for the wonderful joy he often brings us... in death.
@DM Livgin no way that I can make the decision to take ten or roll without bias
Hello, so, it is Monday. What will the flavor of the week be? Vanilla, chocolate, green-Kasatha-marhsmallow? Oh, no: STRAWBERRY!
As promised: Strawberries!!!
- Zoey Strawberry
So, put your info' in the recruitment thread (your SFS# etc. / and what characters you want to play if there's a choice etc.).
I'll see how many open spots we have and then check if we have a couple spots for new SFS players.
(sharing some useless info' just because it shook me up: killed my first SFS character yesterday! Running Absalom Station tabletop, in one long session)
Just a reminder of the rule Redelia reposted in the Discussion thread here (my bold):
The rule is that a character can only be in one game at a time. Playing a game with a pregen when the credit will go to a character is considered to be playing that character for this rule. GM credit is an exception to this rule. Mustering is not considered to be playing that character, so it's OK to list your character's details for a new game while an old game finishes up, as long as it is done before the new game starts.
Zakhar scowls, wondering if this fly is some witch in disguise, before taking a step to flank with... with this blob of green ectoplasmic goo that purports to be a Princess: more witchcraft, I will see about that once this mission is over.
Attack(bastard sword): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (16) + 7 = 23 (flanking)
Hello all, and thanks for the invite!
I have DMed the 1-1 and 1-01's a whole bunch of times, and I have DM-ed or am scheduled to DM all the non- repeatables
But I do not mind DMing any of the scenarios in PbP for no-credit.
Character-wise: I have 7 PCs at 2 XP (from running all the 1-1 and 1-01's) ; and I'm advancing 2 PCs with credits from the scenarios (playing and DMing).
I'd be very happy to play from 1-04, 1-05 on...
Thanks a lot for this guide!
So, at first glance I add my 2 cents that Inspiring Boost is very useful, at least in the games I've played at low level.
But, the main point I have is that I believe you are not accurately describing when to use it, let us see.

Eric has big boots to fill.
So, Hmm wears boots?!Was wondering (stilettos, pumps, penny loafers, high heels, slippers...).
Now, what kind of boots: camping boots, hip waders, rubber rain boots...?
A teeny tiny man enters, barely visible. An easy Sense Motive roll lets you understand that this person is literally crushed by the immense pressure of having to take over a Hmm game.
Hello all, and saddened that Hmm's life is harsh right now. I hope things will get better, somehow, in the upcoming weeks.
I will obviously not measure up to the current GMing, but I will give it my best, and hope to at least offer you an enjoyable ride.
I will start looking into things today, and hope to finish by tomorrow (reading the AP, and all the posts and such).
I will make an Alias for SFS DM-ing.
So, I'll get to reading and prepping, and will get back to you.
