Hello, there! For this PM’d about today’s session of “The Confirmation”! Please wait a couple of more hours! Something came up!

Update: I’ll have to start Sunday, instead. I am sorry for the delays.

I've never played the Confirmation before to be honest. I don't have any level 1 characters however...

Need help? I can show you the ropes of character building.

Sounds good!

I am still down for it (with the same character) and I can imagine some of the others from the last attempt (phaeton_nz, Colin_Mercer, Pete H. and PDK) might be interested, too.
Maybe send them a pm and reserve them a seat for 2-3 days?

Sounds great! I’ll get straight to it, then!


Okay! Good new, everyone interested in a 1-2 tier session! Now that I have the time, and a better understanding of GM credits, would anyone be interested in a hosted game of “The Confirmation”? I’ll be hosting it with up to 6 players. I never fully got to experience this event before, and would love to try it out, at least by GM’ing it! Yes, I already have the scenario.


Got a freshly revamped level 01 Arachne (Spider Were-Touched Shifter) character to play! Anyone interested in helping out?


Okay. And I think I should just archive this campaign, period. I have been struggling to make time for it to much, and stress has been getting to me, lately. I am sorry, everyone.

@GM: please take me out of the campaign tab so that I no longer receive notifications. Thank you, and good luck to the rest of you with your confirmation.

PDK/Davor

How do I do that, again?


Hmmm…. I noticed that I’ve held up this campaign for quite sometime…. Would you all prefer if I cancelled the game, and didn’t mark anyone as having completed it, so that you may all get the full experience, later?


”It’s not always advised to just hand out things to new recruits; they don’t learn to plan ahead, that way.”


Janira offers one last thing, ”Anyone wanting to buy anything else? After all, splash weapons are advised, in the area we are going.”


Sorry for the late message! I’m busy with preparing things for college!

Hey everyone, I wanted to drop a quick note to say that unfortunately I'm going to have to withdraw from this game. Real life has thrown a curveball my way, and I'm finding it increasingly tough to keep up with the many PbP games. I'm really sorry.

I appreciate all the effort that our GM has put into making this game awesome. However, my schedule has become pretty hectic lately, and I don't want to hold the group back or slow things down further. If things settle down for me in the future, I'd love to join another campaign or rejoin this one if there's an opening.

Good luck on your Confirmation!

I fully understand, and apologize that we didn’t get further, by now. You have a fun time, and good luck with your own hectic schedule!


”To answer everyone’s questions! This place is full of monster vying for territory. Centaurs to to the lower regions, Minotaurs in the higher parts of the mounts, and harpies in the icy peaks. But with luck, we can avoid them. We will likely have to hunt for food, along the way, as it will take about 3 days on foot, to get there. Now, then! How about we get moving?”


Any last questions, about the adventure?”


“Alright, then! Here you all go!”, says Janira, as she hands parchment to each bundles of participant. “These are your Adventurer journals! Record your adventures with these! It’s part of your role, as a Pathfinder Society Member! Now, then….”

“On to the details of the mission at hand,” Janira says with an eager grin. “After reviewing my mission reports personally, Master Shaine believes it is no coincidence that each time they entered the caves it was during a full moon, so it is also no coincidence that you have been called here now, just a day before the moon is full again. We both believe that tomorrow night is our best chance to find out why these caves are important and what exactly the gillmen are doing in there.
“The caves we’ll be travelling to lie under the base of the Kortos Mounts. We’ll need to spend every minute of daylight possible to reach the caves by foot, crossing over the Cairnlands, taking the paths to Diobel, and finally making our way through the wilderness. With any luck we won’t run into any of the local inhabitants. Once in the caves, we’ll need to work together to explore and determine whether any gillman are present or have been recently. Keep an eye out for any other clues that might hint at the caves’ significance, too.”


Alright! I’m back! Time to get started!


Perfect! Sounds like everyone is here for some excitement! Well, I hope to provide you all with some, soon!

(This is Pete H's new PC)

Say hello to Cannoli Jones!

Hello! Sorry for the absence again, everyone! I’ve been very busy, this weekend! Hope you all understand!

And no, there’s no hurry. In fact, I was actually thinking of asking if you all if we could pause, this week; I have a lot about to happen.


Technically, we could play with only 1 player. It’s about how flexible the GM is.


“Excellent! Anyone else?”


I think we should could as good, at this point. I see enough players here, now, to not need more.

Also, sorry for the break; had a crazy week, again. But things should be calming down enough to post regularly, from here on!


Perfect! Let’s continue!

Everyone remembers that, in the center of the Island of Kortos, lies the Kortos Mounts, a mountain range.

“Okay, then! Since you all know so much!”

Janira pulls out a large leather-bound journal and opens it on the table. “Before we set out, we should all get to know each other and review our plan. After all, the most important factors that determine whether an expedition will be a success are cooperation and preparation! I’ll go first!”

“At 24 years old, and 2’10”, I am the oldest of seven siblings! My father raised me in Eastport, where he still employs dogs to help him move shipping and store containers to homes & businesses. I originally enrolled to the Pathfinder Society for the various delicious foods out there, only to find my knack for spells quite handy & fun! I am great with a crossbow, and hope to one day get published in a Pathfinder Society Chronicles volume, so I may inspire others!”

It is at this Point that Janira realizes everyone has introduced themselves informally, and decides to take a different route, in the future introductions.

“I see we all know each other, already. But let’s see more! Why did you all join the Pathfinder Society?”

You can give just a one-sentence answer, if you’d like.

Aoi start browsing her Pathfinder Chronicles for more information that she might be able to provide for the team.

Technically, you can take 10 on any knowledge skill check in non-dangerous situations. But I’ll count the highest roll, the 26, instead, for the sake of helping the party out.

Aoi Resenthal remembers an incredible amount of detail, and began explaining about the Gillmen!

(15+) “Also known as Low Azlanti, the Gillmen are believed to by the descendants of the Ancient Azlanti people.”
(20+) “During the Earthfall, the empires of Thassalon and Azlant were split apart; it is believed that the Gillmen survived by an aquatic deity’s blessing, allowing the to become amphibious.”
(25+) “It is also believed by scholars that the Gillmen were associated with the terrifying Aboliths, though such an alliance have since fallen apart. The Gillmen now as an independent group.”

Congrats! All that’s left is the DC 10 Geography check! Which can be taken untrained.

DC 15 History, to learn more about the Gillman, or DC 10 to learn more about the Island of Kortos.

This was supposed to say “DC10 Geography”. Sorry, about that!


DC 15 History, to learn more about the Gillman, or DC 10 to learn more about the Island of Kortos.


Anyways! We’ll start in a few hours! In the meantime, here’s the starting point, to get everyone ready!

The invitation delivered last night was remarkably simple, especially given the importance of the occasion: “Start where it all began. Meet us at the Pig’s Paunch one hour before dawn.”
The Pig’s Paunch is a run-down building with a faded sign of a large pig standing on its hind legs, arms folded above a corpulent belly. Inside, the air is thick with the scents of human sweat, stale tobacco, and leftover food. In the center of the room, surrounded by inebriates sleeping off their revelries, a familiar elven man stands high upon top of a large round table.”
“Welcome! Welcome, my students! Please, have a seat!” With that, Kreighton Shaine, the Pathfinder Society’s Master of Scrolls, nimbly drops down to sit cross-legged on the table before looking about the tavern with a sense of reverent wonder. “Can you believe it? It all started here years ago—well, over four hundred of them at least. Under this very roof the Pathfinder Society was born.
“But today! Today you will begin your Confirmation! Master Farbellus, Master Zey, and I all agree you have shown your worth and dedication to the Society, so there’s no better time to see if you can handle becoming full field operatives. Allow me to introduce you to Janira Gavix,” he says as he motions for an excitable halfling woman to approach. She wears a large backpack and carries all manner of tools, pouches, and scroll cases around her waist. Shaine continues, saying, “Janira here will be going with you on
your Confirmation. She was one of my brightest pupils and will no doubt be an invaluable resource on your journey, for she discovered the caves you are about to explore during her own Confirmation.”
Janira speaks up in an enthusiastic and cheerful voice, “Greetings, aspiring Pathfinders! Six months ago, while I was mapping cave entrances
in the foothills of the Kortos Mounts, I witnessed a lone gillman entering a concealed cave. I thought little of it at the time, but I saw another one enter the cave again a month later as my Confirmation stretched on. A few days later, after I completed my assigned task, I entered the cave system, but was unable to find the gillmen.” Master Shaine hops to his feet. “Initiates, for your Confirmation, you will travel to these caves to explore and document its many passages. Additionally, and most importantly, you are to learn what the gillmen are up to in there. Oh, and you need to come back alive as well.” With these parting words, the Master of Scrolls jumps off the table and strolls out of the building while humming to himself.

Alright, folks! Please ask any questions you have, about the mission, while introducing yourselves, formally!

May I use a pre-gen?

Yes, you may


Alright! We can discuss things, officially, now!


Hello, everyone! Sorry for the delay! I was busy, for a while, but have the time to start, now!

@Gothic_Artificer: I am still interested, but please take your time for preparations. I'll happily wait a bit longer before I have a mediocre rushed game. ;-)

Also, phaeton_nz posted a link regarding the set up of a PBP - see below.

Maybe this post can help you

Hello, there! Sorry for such a delay! I had a lot of home renovations to prepare for, and get finished!

Luckily, they are over, and the Confirmation is open!

It’s going to be for the first 6 players interested! So please! Everyone interested in playing 05-08: “The Confirmation”, please join as quickly as possible! Thank you, and sorry all, for the delay!


Who is ready to get tested?


All good, here!

Scratch that. I need to rest, then look up how to form a fresh forum, for hosting a PbP game. Unless everyone is okay with playing through Discord.
Are you still planning on running the Confirmation?

I am! I just didn’t have time to run it, until now! Just give me a while to figure out how to start a PBP. I usually hosted during events, so the VO’s already had them set.


Woohoo! We did it!

Do you have a signup sheet for it?

Not yet! I had a much busier week than expected, but should have one set up tomorrow!


Well, at least Kyomi isn’t dead yet, right?

Whelp…. This sucks…. Kyomi is 3 HP from death, again….

Anyone running Tier 01-02 scenarios? I have a level 01 Swashbuckler for PFS1, that needs some more experience.

Inversely, is anyone interested in playing through “The Confirmation”, a Tier 01-02 scenario? I’m also looking to GM it.


GM Nowruz wrote:

Rolling for boons for us.

No 19 or 20 so no boons. :-(

I’ll report today but we can continue our game.

Thank you. I wonder if it’s alright for me to roll my own die?

Kyomi Boon roll: 1d20 ⇒ 2

Didn’t change anything, anyhow.


Yeah, I was checking - there’s no way Kyomi will be able to read the scroll.


Is there room for a level 01 Kitsune Ronin? I have not played this scenario, yet.


Does Tenacious Shifting effect “Wild Shape”, since it’s essentially “Beast Shapes ii”? Or in the case of my Weretouched Spider Shifter, “Vermin Shape ii”.


GM Nowruz wrote:

Can you all please fill out slides 2 and 3?

THANKS

Sorry about that! All done! And sorry if I’m making this game a bit…. Odd. My character is definitely a strange one, and I understand it isn’t necessarily to everyone’s tastes. If you need my to tone it down, I fully understand.


Also, I need to ask: would everyone be alright, with me making a comic out of our adventure? It’ll be sold through “Pathfinder Infinite”, after I finish the first adventure with my Kobolds comic (roughly 3-4 months, from now).


Sorry I’m late! Just got the message!

• Experience with PbP: I mostly played Pathfinder Adventure, but did get in a play through a single session of “Race for The Runecarved Key”, as my Kobold Character, Tarka. I will be using her, here.

- Class(es)/Level: Tarka is a 01 Gunslinger (Bushwhacker/ Maverick/ Pistolero)

- Played or GM’ed this Scenario?: No
