So this is after the fact, but I ran this at Gen-Con. At the time, I thought I must just have forgotten where it was, or that I couldn't find it in a panic, but I recently went back and confirmed that I think it is a mistake. In Part 3, the House GM may announce that the Inspired Defense condition is in effect. That is the only time the words Inspired Defense appear in the PDF. I don't think there is a condition in Pt 3 that was mislabeled, but I could be wrong about that.

The Pegasus cuts power to the engines after confirming vector and gracefully glides into the Exemplarion, a massive star yacht and personal pleasure cruiser for Zo!, a new ally to the Starfinder Society. The Society sorely needs allies at this point, and beggars can't be choosers, which is why First Seeker Luwazi Elsebo overrode objections to ally with the Eoxian.
Perhaps, you might have thought an Eoxian ship to dreary and smelly, like decaying flesh, but the ship is sparkling clean and well-lit. The group passes both a casino, a caff shop and three restaurants and only one seems to be serving food unfit for living consumption. There are hundreds of guests and consumers on the ship, spread out over six decks.
A skeletal halfling waves one of its arms with its other arm, trying to get your attention. A vocalizer gives its voice, as its lower jaw is missing, "You're the Starfinder agents right? Been looking all over for you. Come, come, I'll take you to your meeting."
this would be a good time to introduce yourselves. You've been traveling together for nearly a week, so feel free to reveal anything you think you'd bring up in the past week.
This is gonna be first come first serve
Player Name: (as you want it on the chronicle sheet)
Boons: (Suggested boons: High Society (Zo!) from 1-05 and Claimant to Salvation from 1-00)
Anything I might need to know:
Hope to start June 3rd. (This is for levels 1 through 4)

The Ashefall Lodge, captained by Oraiah Tolal, is unusual, as its a treehouse, stationed above the swamps of Tamran. The group was sent here by Steward of the Grand Lodge Ambrus Valsin. Since half the time, the port of Tamran is being blockaded by the Molthuni navy, it was long and arduous journey overland through the Nesmian Plains.
So, I've done a couple of PBPs so far. I am slower than the average GM, so if you're the type of person who needs this character to be done by X-date, this may not be the game for you (or that character in particular). On the other hand, I want to try to force myself to be quicker than I was on previous games. But I can't promise that the character will be done by this date or that date. I am not shooting for any particular subtier, nor am I going to turn away someone for playing out of tier. (though if you sign up with one character, and realize that you would be out-of-tier, and want to switch to another, that's fine)
What I need from you
I am currently recruiting people to play a CORE game of 7-14, Faithless and Forgotten, Pt 1. It will be by lottery. If you choose to, you can continue on to Pts 2 and 3. I don't have a preference on tier, it will be up to you who are playing.
Lottery will take place sometime Wednesday, the 13 after I'm done with work that day. I plan on starting play the 15th or 16th.
THIS IS A CORE GAME
1. Post a day, understanding that everyone has a rough day every once and while and that's gonna up-turn the apple cart. So aim for at least 6 posts/week.
But more importantly, what makes a post? Unless we're neck-deep in combat that's been going for a couple rounds, I expect more than a sentence. I don't need 500 words or anything, but give me at least a couple sentences. Tell me what your character is doing, and what your character is thinking. Also, respond to one another, not just to what I say as the GM. If Alice the Fighter says that she's scared of crocodiles, but Bob the Cleric has fought one before, he should bring that up, he should say something about it.
2. I do reserve the right to bot you a) in combat if you haven't posted in 24 hours, b) some skill checks, especially perception and sense motive rolls
3. If you want to use your re-roll on a bot-post (such as a saving throw), you must declare it at the very start of the first post after said bot-post.
4. I am a new GM to PBP. Please bear with me if anything is wonky on my presentation. If you have questions, tips or concerns, feel free to PM me.
It'll be first come, first serve, with the following caveats. Anyone who has GM'd for me, either in real life or in a PBP gets priority, and I reserve one spot for a person who is new to PFS-PBP. If you think that person is you, look at your campaigns page here. If there are more than five campaigns on it, active or inactive, you are not that person. I will finalize the roster around the start of August, and we will begin August 25.
That all said
Player Name: (as you want it on the Chronicle Sheet)
PFS History: (List of chronicles that this character has)
do I get a player credit if I GM-run a pregen on a scenario that I don't already have a chronicle for?
So the first session of Pathfinder Society in Lincoln, Nebraska was a success! We had three players, Crowe, Adowyn and a magus made at the table, along with a GM-run Kyra (me). I ran the Confirmation, which I've never played before in either mode. Do I only get the GM Credit or do I also get the credit for running a Pre-gen?
Follow-up if the answer is I get both, the next time we meet, I plan on running an adventure that I've got player credit already. Let's assume I have to run a pre-gen again (I hope i don't, but let's pretend), how do I indicate that I did that?
For the past few months, I've been traveling out to Omaha. Now that I've got some PFS GMing experience, I'm hoping to cut down on traveling costs by offering it in my hometown. I'm not affiliated with a shop, but a local gaming shop (Gauntlet on 13th street, to be specific) has said they're willing to host me.
Anyone in Lincoln or the surrounding area (even Omaha I guess!) please contact me.
