Mike's PbP "Table Rules" -

0 - RL > Game. No other rules trump rule 0! :D

1 - I'd like it if everyone posted once a day Mon-Fri. Friday night through Sunday night is eh-whatever (I am in US Eastern Time, for reference, currently UTC -04). I'll try to post when I can over weekends, but I know people have lives and won't always be online, so no worries. My local lodge's "game nights" are Sunday-Monday, so my GM posts on those days won't be until very late in the evening.

2 - If you don't post in the middle of an "action" scene for a day, you get skipped once (or botted if your action would be super obvious or you leave a note to me or another player "proxying" your character). If you don't post a second time, you get "botted" by me to do something simple (usually just attack or aid another). If we get into the 3-5 range, I'll probably drop you a line off-list to see what's up. If it goes on too long...well, I hate dropping people from games, but it unfortunately happens :(

3 - When you've got a saving throw to make, please roll that first before posting any other actions/rolls (unless it can occur before the save).

4 - Feel free to roll perception whenever you want. If you want to use Hero Points before learning the result of the roll, go for it. Or you can set conditional statements (i.e. "if that's a failure on X, I'll reroll"), and so on.

5 - Have fun! Rule 5 trumps all other rules! :P

I was surprised to find this not having been asked anywhere on the rules forum before.

This type of augmentation is for Small and Medium creatures only. Hideaway limbs for creatures larger than Medium typically cost more but can hold items of greater size or bulk.

Does anybody know if the designers have stated any place what the cost is for large+ creatures, or what limitations these augmentations have for such characters?

Thanks in advance!

No real major questions on this one. Honestly, this scenario is kind of a breath of fresh air. Easy to read (standard levels of typos in opf adventures nonwithstanding), easy to prep, easy to run in a 4 hour block (so far I've only experienced it running in less than 4 hours, which is also a positive for me). Just noticed a couple of things I found worthy of mention so I figured starting a GM thread might be helpful.

- Players from the last adventure Therseis showed up in (The Protectorate Petition) might be curious as to where the copaxi's drone is, since they were apparently a Mechanic the last time we saw them. This also threw me a little at first until I remembered that copaxi basically have access to a mnemonic editor every time they level up. I was a little sad that aspect of Therseis's story (and its tie to copaxi history) is apparently being left behind, but that's just me.

- My players were also very concerned about parts of the briefing - wondering how much leeway the military was giving them since on the one hand they had ID badges, but on the other Ziggy was implying that they should take clandestine samples (all the while knowing the PCs were being tracked, etc.). Make sure to not let your players get bogged down wondering about smuggling samples since it simply doesn't come up at all during the adventure.

- Another question that came up at one of my games where they learned about the Fallen Hand prior to getting in the submarine - the PCs wanted to search the local infosphere for more information. This was one where I felt I could have done more digging into Near Space prior to GMing...but at the same time GMs shouldn't have to do research before running scenarios to have answers, I think.

Mechanics stuff:

- The vehicle rule sidebar is missing an important part that is 100% necessary for this scenario.

Vehicle Tactical Rules wrote:
Vehicles provoke attacks of opportunity while driving, and when you are in a vehicle that’s driving, you similarly provoke attacks of opportunity if you take any actions that would normally do so (including making ranged attacks) unless the vehicle provides total cover. You can’t use the drive action to move a vehicle through spaces occupied by creatures, even if they’re allies.

Emphasis mine. Both submarine variants provide total cover, so PCs who stay inside of them cannot provoke attacks of opportunity. This led to players wondering if the submarines had viewports or hatches they could use to fire out of. This is a failing of the CRB in that submarines don't get any useful descriptive text or even art (that I'm aware of), so I told them yes (since the vehicle rules allow for passengers to fire from inside vehicles, even ones that provide total cover).

- In the high tier, the gharial seems to be listed with the wrong size ("large") even though its stat block still has space/reach 15 feet.

Side note: points to the artist for the mutated gharial. I'm fortunate enough to have a paleontology professor in my lodge who specializes in crocodilians. Upon seeing the art, they applauded the art for correctly portraying a female, "based on the shape of the snout alone." :)

- Lastly, this scenario falls into the same trap SFS #2-11 did with the use of vracineas as enemies. One of their most powerful abilities is scent-based, but both groups I've seen had their environmental seals up from either the moment they got into the submarine, or from when they got to the mangrove swamp (since the players knew how bad those stink), the fight turned into a somewhat boring stand-still slug-fest once everyone made their saves versus the lures.

In the grand scheme of things, while all of the above are minor issues, I still felt that other GMs might benefit from seeing them. Especially since it only uses published flip-mats, this one is definitely joining "Duskmire Accord 9" as one of my "quick pick" scenarios for whenever I need to run a game on short notice or when I want something for a shorter time slot!

Hello,

I've had a minor financial hiccup, and if possible (I know you all have a huge backlog you're working through right now) I'd like to cancel the remaining part of this order that isn't slated to ship until mid-September. I fully understand that you might not see this message for a bit, and it's on me if I've posted this too late to catch the order before it ships.

Hello,

I'm trying to buy a SFS scenario for a new GM in my lodge (normally I'd loan them a printed hard copy, but current real-world circumstances make that difficult on several levels), but when I go to check out, "Find a friend to invite" doesn't seem to work like it did in the past. I enter their Paizo user name, hit "Find"...and nothing happens.

I've tried it on Firefox, Chrome, and on my phone; on both regular and incognito windows. Any assistance or advice would be appreciated. Thanks very much in advance!

Ectoplasmic Snare wrote:
You launch a writhing tendril of ectoplasm to snare a creature. Make a ranged attack roll against your target’s EAC. If you hit, the target can attempt a Reflex save. On a successful save, the target is entangled for the duration. If the target fails, it is grappled and takes 2d6 bludgeoning damage each round it remains so. If the target escapes the grapple, it remains entangled for the duration. While the target remains grappled, you can move it up to 15 feet each time you concentrate on the spell. If the distance between you and the target ever exceeds the spell’s range, the snare disappears. This spell affects ethereal and incorporeal creatures.

Normally, the DC to escape a grapple is 10 + the grappler's KAC. Alternatively, when restrained by bindings/rope it becomes 20 + 1.5 the opponent's CR.

Any thoughts on how to calculate an escape DC from this spell if a target is hit and fails their initial saving throw? Without further guidance, the tendril of ectoplasm is sort of a "binding" and thus 20 + 1.5 the caster's CR, I guess (which seems a bit high to me in the middle of combat)?

Thanks in advance!

Question is in the subject line.

For the Biohacker Genetics Field of Study, the Booster lists a 60 minute duration. But for the inhibitor:

Quote:
Inhibitor: You deliver a DNA-twisting or material-altering chemical nanite compound into a creature’s body, imparting vulnerability to one type of energy (your choice). If the creature is immune to that energy type, this inhibitor temporarily removes that immunity and gives the creature resistance 20 to that type of energy. If the creature has resistance to that energy type, this effect instead reduces its resistance by 10 (minimum 0). This biohack does not remove a creature’s resistance or immunity to natural hazards or environments, only to damage from energy attacks, spells, and other abilities.

Table-experience suggests that the duration may not matter if this is used by a PC on a monster or enemy. However, for campaigns and longer adventures, knowing the duration could be important.

Thanks very much in advance!

Success condition question:

Primary Objective

If the PCs complete the Balgirdtrek without being caught
cheating or interfering with the other teams progress they
complete the primary objective of this scenario. Doing so
earns each PC 2 Fame and 1 Reputation for any faction

Secondary Objectives
Winning the Balgirdtrek grants the PCs the Tarnbreaker
Champions boon on their Chronicle sheet and earns each
PC 2 Fame and 1 Reputation for any faction associated

Is this scenario supposed to be worth a maximum of 4 Fame and 2 Reputation, or are these numbers in error?

Side-observation from the chronicle sheet:
If the spell "snowball" is made legal when the Lost Omens World Guide is sanctioned for play, players may grumble at their only (non-boon) reward being something that is already always available (if they own the book).

Welcome nufriends to another fun and slightly loopy module called SKITTER CRASH! I will once more be your conductor of this crazy space train into six-armed furry fury, part deux!

Rather than copy my introduction post from the Skitter Shot discussion, I'll just link it...which I just did? ^^;

Also, the link to the Skitter Crash character sheets, cheat sheets, and some art can be found HERE

One thing I will copy and paste, however...

Dire's PbP "Table Rules" -

0 - RL > Game. No other rules trump rule 0! :D

1 - I'd like it if everyone posted once a day Mon-Fri. Friday night through Sunday night is eh-whatever (I am in US Eastern Time, for reference). I'll try to post when I can over weekends, but I know people have lives and won't always be online, so no worries.

2 - If you don't post in the middle of an "action" scene for a day, you get skipped once (or botted if your action would be super obvious or you leave a note to me or another player "proxying" your character). If you don't post a second time, you get "botted" by me to do something simple (usually just attack or aid another). If we get into the 3-5 range, I'll probably drop you a line off-list to see what's up. If it goes on too long...well, I hate dropping people from games, but it unfortunately happens :(

3 - When you've got a saving throw to make, please roll that first before posting any other actions/rolls (unless it can occur before the save).

4 - Feel free to roll perception and sense motive whenever you want, and if you have a reroll, feel free to use that anytime as well.

5 - Have fun! Rule 5 trumps all other rules! :P

~~~~~

Also, please post the following information in this discussion thread:

Player Name/Alias:
Organized Play # / Character # (that you want to apply this chronicle sheet to - any level 3-4 SFS character is allowed, or we can "drop" the chronicle down to a 1st level character with reduced credits)
What faction are you slotting for this adventure:
Do you have a promotional boon to slot for this adventure / what is it:

Unlike most SFS adventures, the only boons you can use here are basic Faction boons (to earn Reputation), and Promotional boons such as T-shirts, messenger bags, etc.

Thanks very much in advance for that info. At this time, please feel free to say hi and get settled. Once everyone has checked in, we can get this party started! I'm looking forward to running this for all of you, and hope you enjoy it as much or even more than the last one!

Just fishing for opinions (a truly dangerous catch) -

Create Darkness (Alien Archive) wrote:
As a standard action, the creature can create a 20-foot-radius area of darkness centered on itself, which negates the effects of all nonmagical light sources in that area. This darkness lasts for a number of minutes equal to the creature’s CR, and the creature can dismiss the effect as a standard action. The darkness doesn’t move with the creature. Unless otherwise noted, any magic source of light can increase the light level in the area as normal.

Emphasis mine.

Solar Manifestation (Su) wrote:
...You also choose whether your solar manifestation (in any form) either glows brightly with one color common to stars (including blue, red, white, or yellow) or is the perfect darkness of a black hole. A glowing solar manifestation, regardless of its form, sheds dim light in a 20-foot radius. You can shut off the light or darkness as a standard action in order to blend in or assist in stealth, but whenever you enter a stellar mode (see page 102), the glow or darkness returns immediately.

Emphasis also mine.

In a area under the effect of Create Darkness, would a glowing solar manifestation would increase the light level from dark to dim in a 20 foot radius, due to its supernatural source?

The SFS game where this occurred (#2-03) has already passed, and all present at the table agreed on a solution - I'm just curious to see if there are other opinions or things that we didn't take in to account.

Thanks in advance!


Looking at the rules for Investing an Item, it seems clear that if you remove the investiture from an item you previously invested, it still counts against your limit of 10 items per day. Can you reinvest that item if you have not yet reached your limit?

As an example - you invested a Bracers of Missile Deflection (Greater) during your daily preparations, but during your adventuring day, decide that a different party member would benefit from borrowing it, so you remove your investiture and let them take it on. Later that day your party finds a different magical item that does something similar and they return it to you...can you get its benefits back if you invest it like it was a new item (i.e. having the second investment count separately against your limit of 10/day)?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this one!


During a PFS game last evening, an interesting situation came up.

PC A (a cleric) was fending off a Skeletal Champion, while PC B (a monk) was fighting two Skeletal Guards. Both PCs were engaged in melee with their opponents. One of the Skeletal Guards rolled a natural 20 in an attack against PC B. PC A declared they were casting the Protector's Sacrifice focus spell as a reaction in order to absorb some of that damage.

The GM, looking at the spell, noted that it had somatic components, giving it the manipulate trait thus meaning that it could provoke the Attack of Opportunity reaction from the Skeletal Champion. However, then the question came up about whether a reaction can trigger another reaction, and whether that reaction could in turn trigger any other reactions...so the GM decided to let that one go (since the PCs were rolling rather poorly during that encounter anyway).

Doing a search through the forums, I haven't seen a question like this yet (or my search fu is weak). Does anybody happen to know the answer on this one?

Thanks in advance!

Just gave this my first read-through, and I have a couple of early questions:

LOCKDOWN wrote:


In a single turn, several things happen at once.
D All the lights on the floor go out. The only light is what the PCs bring with them—most likely flashlights in their armor’s personal comm unit, which raise the light level by one step (from darkness to dim light, for example) in a 15-foot cone.

I've heard several players and other GMs since Starfinder's launch mention that armor has built-in flashlights and other systems, but the only thing I've ever been able to find in the actual rules (beyond standard environmental protections/seals) are the anchor functionality of the boots. While I think that modern/sci-fi armor should have built-in comms and/or lights (and I know I'd want them), I can't find this in the CRB or Armory...does anybody happen to know where this rule might be that I have yet to locate?

LOCKDOWN wrote:
D A jammer activates on an adjacent floor, preventing the PCs and other surviving employees from communicating beyond the confines of the office floor.

Several of my own PCs like to carry level 1 signal jammers to block enemy comms while on missions, and when in-game time allows, they turn them on in advance so the party can take 1 minute to cut through the jamming with Engineering checks so their own aren't affected. Normal signal jammers can be overcome with DCs dependent on how powerful they are. If we have players who are savvy as to how this game mechanic works, are there any details we can give them about why they can't attempt to bypass it (since the scenario does not appear to take into account that characters can do that with normal signal jammers)?

Thanks in advance!

While helping a group of new players learn how to build characters and play 2nd edition last week, I was looking for online resources to assist (since there were originally going to be 4-6 players in attendance and only one me). Through reddit, I stumbled on this amazing resource, which was originally formatted for the PF2 playtest. I reached out to its creator, who just finished updating it for the PF2E Core Rulebook and gave me permission to share it with the PFS community.

I hope you find it helpful!

This is the discussion thread for Skitter Shot (Tier 1-2: using pregenerated Skittermander characters or your own level 1-2 skittermanders) as part of the PbP GameDay VIII, set to begin on August 26th, 2019!

Sorry for only getting this page up now, but post-Gen Con 2019 has been a bit insane for me - moving, medical/back issues, and other things I won't bore you with.

Feel free to pop in and say hello if you're part of the game from the Signup Spreadsheet!


At first glance, I figured this was super easy - just use the normal DC process for a grenade (10 + half item level + dex mod), but the more I looked at some of them (in this case, the rather neat holo grenade), I began to wonder if the fact that some of these list specific spell and caster levels might affect that.

As such, here I am, wondering if anyone knows for sure or heard any rulings on this sort of thing, since for Society play, individual GM opinions might not hold water at every port-of-call.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
