Open Recruitment for a PFS legal run-through of #3–11: The Quest for Perfection, Part II: On Hostile Waters

I expect all characters to have a tagline covering at least the information given here before we begin.
As well, I will NOT accept a player that does not have the majority of your character sheet uploaded (at least skills, saves, attack and damage bonuses with weapons, significant gear/magic items).

Otherwise my expectations are mostly about having a fun time, and keeping things moving.

If this sounds like your kind of game, please feel free to post your interest here!

I am looking to start ASAP, so I will take the first 6 to post their interest (that also have character sheets uploaded) with ONE EXCEPTION: if a player from my run of the first part wish to play, they will be given priority to continue the arc. Otherwise it will be first come first served. If we do not have 6 by July 26th, but have at least 3 I will offer to run 3+pregen, if the players are willing.

This scenario is a 1-5 that is Part 2 of a 3 part series (both other parts are 1-5's as well). I intend to run all three parts. Players in the previous part will have first right of refusal to the subsequent parts (but are not obligated to play the remaining parts).

So! Let's hear who's interested, and what character options you have!

This scenario is a 3-7 that is a great adventure that I loved playing and have run multiple times. It is also a wonderful continuation of an NPC from 6-21 Tapestry's Toil.

So! Let's hear who's interested, and what character options you have!

After receiving some mission details which I will provide once we kick off the scenario with the "box text" you and several members of your team are packing or your trip into the mountains.

Considering you (likely) haven't worked with these Pathfinders before, it may be a good time to introduce yourself before you leave the Lantern Lodge here in Goka.

Feel free to dot in and/or introduce your characters.

As well, please have the majority of your character sheet uploaded (at least skills, saves, attack and damage bonuses with weapons).

Otherwise my expectations are mostly about having a fun time, and keeping things moving.

Things that I feel help with both of those:

Clarity - If you can be clear with what you're communicating, things will move more smoothly, allowing for more fun, and less stress.
This includes formatting "such as using text like this" (bold and quotes). Internal thoughts can be similar, but maybe italicized instead.

I love flavor text, and giving more of a description of what you're doing. But please don't bog down the gameplay thread with so much flavor that people don't want to read.
And I strongly discourage internal monologues. Quick thoughts such as "THAT was mean!" are fine, but if you are typing several sentences that no other character can hear/interact with, it doesn't do much for anyone else.

Efficiency I will roll most of the dice rolls that are appropriate, and that I can find. You are free to request and roll most social rolls, and obviously your turn in combats. (If you are subject to an effect that requires a save, I will make the save, and tell you the results. This is faster than waiting for your save, then waiting for my response)

That being said, my next point is:
Consistency - I will try to post at least once a day during the week (usually evening for me) and would like to expect the same from you. Some days I may be able to check an additional time, and would use those times to help keep things moving, but not up my expectation of anyone.

That being said, if you do not have anything to contribute to a non-combat encounter, don't feel the need to post until something comes up that you want to act on.

If given an opportunity, or your turn in combat comes up, I will bot your character (helpful to have full character sheets in profile) if you do not post within 24 hours. Some GMs may place you into delay, but that can slow down combats, and put a lot of pressure on the remaining players. If I have to bot you twice, I may continue to bot you without waiting 24 hours, until I hear from you again.

Communication - Talk with me. I'm a pretty easy-going person. I'm a real person on this side of the forum/GM Screen, I recognize that you all are too. Sometimes life comes up. Family, work, conventions. If you're gonna have trouble making time for the game for a bit: let me know. If I've botted you for a while, let me know when you're back.
If something I or one of the other players does bothers you, please let me know.

I think that's most of my stuff for now. I hope to see you all start dropping in and look forward to having fun!

A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 5–9.

A simple retrieval mission takes an unexpected turn when the Pathfinder Society learns a valuable treasure was under its nose—within the curious demiplane connected to the Hao Jin Tapestry. The descendants of the original owners have changed in the centuries since their sequestration, though, and initial attempts to parley have ended in failure. Can the PCs discover what became of this lost people and secure the relic they guard?

Content in “Tapestry’s Toil” contributes directly to the Year of the Sky Key metaplot as well as the ongoing storyline of the Grand Lodge faction.
