Personally I was hoping for Lifeform as the term, but I get compatibility is a major priority and common terminology whenever possible makes sense with that goal.

and a crush of people stampede him leaving him bruised on the ground with his face on the deck plating and the hand clutching his cred stick still up in the air.

...

3 speed increases. 1 kinetic weapon and a weapon upgrade on it. That leaves 6 mods to go. We'll need one pilot and two gunners. I suggest adding two more projectile weapons, two piloting upgrades, an EAC upgrade and a KAC upgrade.

I'm fine with that unless someone has a particular place they want to see their upgrade go

It takes a few days to get back to Absalom Station. When the you
return to Absalom Station, Radaszam is ecstatic about the signal you found and immediately sets a team to work decoding the beacon’s signal. First Seeker Ehu Hadif recommends you bring Khendai to Respite, a therapy and support center on the grounds of the Lorespire Complex, so Khendai can receive the support and care they need to overcome their trauma and move on with their life.

The PCs complete their primary objective if they discover Rasheen’s
next beacon and catalog the contents of the mausoleum. Doing so
earns each PC 1 Reputation for their selected faction.


If the PCs complete at least four of the following tasks, they complete their secondary objective and they earn 1 additional Reputation for their current faction:
catalogue at least 6 resources from the mausoleum,
catalogue at least 10 resources from the mausoleum, escort
Khendai to Absalom Station,
repair the mausoleum’s network,
destroy Dortay ven Corbosi,

relay the fate of Khendai and Keystone to Corbosi Inc.,
and discover Rasheen’s next beacon before the adventure’s conclusion.


Acquisitives: This mission furthers the goals of the Acquisitives
faction. If the PCs discover Rasheen’s next beacon before the
adventure’s conclusion and destroy Dortay ven Corbosi, each PC
earns 1 additional Reputation with the Acquisitives.


Second Seekers (Ehu Hadif): This mission furthers the goals
of the Second Seekers (Ehu Hadif) faction. If the PCs catalog the
contents of the mausoleum, each PC earns 1 additional Reputation
with the Second Seekers (Ehu Hadif) faction.

Any GM's out there interested in running 4-02, Settling Accounts or 4-15 Feuding Faiths PBP? 4-02 is a tier 1-4 scenario and 5-15 is a 5-8 one.

I have have PC's available that could play in both if I can find GM's for each of them.

While I'm at it I might as well add I've got a PC who is available if someone wants to run 5-04 Fragment of the Fourth. This one is a tier 9-12 scenario and I'd like to play in the higher tier.

I might be able to do one or more of those in a few weeks when my current PbPs wrap up.

[dice=Willpower save 2nd try with Improved Iron Will]1d20+11

+2 insight bonus on this save if Dortay was using a spell, because I have Spellbane feat.

Another +2 circumstance bonus from Cerebral Countermeasures if this is a mind-affecting effect.

Photon attunement 3.

Assuming he saved, Gremvest activates Plasma Sheath as a move action, then as a standard action, uses Solar Acceleration to do a full attack against Dortay plus Haste himself plus Grump & Patrick for 10 rounds.

[dice=fire damage if first attack hit]2d8+18+5
[dice=fire damage if second attack hit]2d8+18+5

Finally, if what Dortay did was cast a spell, Gremvest probably should have gotten an opportunity attack because his weapon has reach. If an opportunity attack was triggered, here it is:

[dice=Opportunity attack holy ghost killer OPPORTUNISITC malebranche-class burning chains vs EAC]1d20+16+2
[dice=fire damage if opportunity attack hit]2d8+18+3

It was a spell and you attack will negate it. You other attacks miss.

Prebriefing flashback
A black haired human woman wearing red armor with black highlights enters the room. She seems distracted by a holographic heads up display which seems to be displaying some starship test data. She registers Kaylees voice and perks up, "Kaylee good to see you again, what have you been up to? Any exciting developments with Simon? Hey Simon!."
Nadia takes a moment to listen to the other assembled Starfinders, pausing to address Shokil, "I don't know if the mini bar has any eggs, but I can try and whip you up a prairie oyster."
She then turns of her display and takes a seat.

Scruffy and Robert-0 move towards what they assume is a dance floor.
They attempt to cut a rug. Robert-0 mostly spins in circles and flails it's limbs. Scruffy uses his malleable limbs ability to scratch/and shorten his arms and legs as he attempts to dance. This of course is his attempt to create a distraction.

GM Farol wrote:

With regards to what Scruffy said, I forgot about the hexes that fall 'in between arcs'. But quick glance in the online rules says:

'Range And Arc
First, determine the range between the two starships (counted in hexes) and the arc of attack. For every range increment beyond the first, the gunnery check takes a cumulative –2 penalty. The attacking starship can fire a weapon against only ships in the same arc as that weapon; see the diagram on page 318. If the targeted starship is in a hex that lies in two arcs (the shaded hexes in the diagram), the gunner decides which arc’s weapons target it; it can’t be targeted by weapons in two arcs.'

So I am afraid that you can't shoot with more than 2 weapons in this fight. Unless the above rules were changed. Or I am missing something.

Hmm been doing that wrong for longer than I care to admit.

Tik does not fool the thug, his stab is easily blocked by him, but then...

Scruffy fires his pistol, the acid dart is accompanied by an electrocution discharge of significant size. It scratches Merthinett armor just barely but it looks like enough to spin her around and crush her into the wall nearby.

Verthanis take a step back with their hands raised.

"Hey, she was paying us, we have no interest in fighting you. Over there is where Merthinett kept her valuables, it is yours." they retreat to safety Do you let them be? Or continue fighting?

In the safety box, you can find a few items of low quality and a datapad with a red sticker on it. When analyzing its content you spot a recording from security cameras showing an Android getting to work and being there through the day. Really boring and uneventful video.

I will wait for you to take a decision if you want to let Verthanis go or not, and move you forwards then.

Scruffy yeah your pistol targets EAC. Good job all! the first fight could be behind you!

yeah it's just a little weird because you CAN put injector rounds in it, but it fires some fine stream of chemicals normally

"*sniff* Scruffy just wants to get the job done and fix his drone."

playing it safe and taking 10 if that seems unsuccessful in round 3 I would change to a roll for round 4

Flexnaught shutters his eyelids blocking out all external stimuli and breaths deeply a few moments despite not needing to, "Remember your training." He takes a single deep breath before turning to the camera an explaining in that single breath, "Melt a pound of butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat and slowly cook until the bubbling ceases and the liquid turns clear. Strain and cool, being sure to leave any solids in the bottom of the pan. Or, once the butter has cleared, remove from heat and add two inches of hot tap water. Since it's less dense than water, the now clarified butter will float to the top.A few hours in the fridge will solidify the butter. Use or wrap in wax paper and foil and refrigerate. Can be frozen for up to two months. But since I don't have that much time, I'll improvise."

You know there are a bunch of things in this errata that are things like rephrasing how often class features can be used. Going from when this wears off the target is immune to being only targeted once per day. Which I'm sure is what was intended but the way things were worded it makes it seem like you could spam the ability for as long as the creature was still effected. I'm assuming that wasn't the intention hence the errata. When every ability for the class is phrased that way its a lot of changed. I actually printed the errata and just started writing them into my hardcopy while watching tv. There are some sections ill be cutting out and pasting in because they are extensive, but mostly it was line out this word change it to this word. Add this work at the end remove this sentence. I'm not that bothered btu i understand those who are.

If it hasnt been a problem at your table and you arn't playing PFS, I'm thinking it shouldn't be that much of a concern.
