(posting as Ezren's actions)

Looking at Ezren i think he can try to do some solid damage to the fey muncher.

(1 action) Hand of the apprentice then (2 action) acid arrow..

hand of the apprentice: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (6) + 11 = 171d8 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10

acid arrow: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (17) + 10 = 273d8 ⇒ (3, 2, 7) = 12

if it hits 1d6 persistent acid damage

Dark Archive

Ezren will most likely try to help with the tack and tackle approach for the supplies.
crafting: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (15) + 9 = 24

Hi all. I'm Douglas from Scotland and have been playing and running RPGs for more than a couple of decades now. Over that stretch I have run LARPs, campaigns and one shots across a hefty number of different systems.

For PFS I have been involved for about 5 years now, starting as a player finding a way to play instead of always Gm, through to resident GM as part of the team to being the Venture Captain for Scotland for the past two years.

I can be found lurking around the many discords out there and running games on the Roll for Combat discord. Hoping that helping out as mentor with one of these will help bring more people together and provide a fun time for all (without the usual worries of GM-ing in a new way for the first time).

I am currently running two games on the discord for Play-Dis-con 2020 and find myself happy with 1-3 games GM PBP at a time (along with playing in 2-5 games)

Our thanks for keeping us in the loop though and they are great to see being supplied via Paizo :)

This is where the warning to the paladin *player* that this would be an evil act comes in... and where if they choose to do so then they know it has chance of falling repercussions. If they eat the whole thing then it will be an outcome beyond it anyway so can be the tragic eternal struggle trapped there or whichever narrative way they continue it.

They cannot physically intervene via PVP (and that rule is not overwritten in this case) but they can make their opinion known in character. Its part of playing a paladin in society and is the clause about working with evil where needed.

Slightly off the main discussion but please include all available skills... the old ones made it tough for new players and the first draft of playtest had a similar issue...

leaning over a new player to get their charisma bonus to be able to participate is not awesome fun for either side!

Thanks Thursty.. I didn't want to to come across as a complaint but more of a general feel a year down the line.

I have more race boons unused than i have characters so far and still wanting to get to grips with more new and interesting things (so would not want to stop the race stream) but it is getting to be pokemon rather than character concepts...

Loving the idea of Manifold Host and in having other bits and pieces but last con i was more interested in rolling the player boon to pass on to a local than i was to see the GM racial one.

I am not sure how best to flag this one so giving it a go, the influx of so many races across the year+ of Starfinder has meant that they are seeming less valued and less of an interest as a GM convention reward.

We have had the chance to get used to the core book, potential of legacy races as standard, chronicle boons unlocking races, play boons for more races and a stack of GM boon convention races (with double choices).

I would like to suggest that for GM con boons would it be possible to do a race and a featured effect instead of the double boon - I know that we are new to the campaign but we really do have a lot of choices with another Alien Archives on the way...

I know there will still be picks people will want to go for and more characters to build into but it does start to feel like we are gaining these faster than we can look up.

I would like another seeker arc (for mostly retirement) would like another ending story for a character before we tidy things up and move over in a way that one scenario in a season has been tough to do.

Dark Archive

many thanks - came through without a problem :)

Hi there, looks like this order (normal purchase of the scenario) got stuck at pending but by all accounts the scenario came through but this did not move on. Would you be able to give it a push in the right direction?

Thanks

Preorder expected March 2018 - hoping its not a long delay on this one! need some camera action...

Hmm.. we are planning for 6-05 Slave ships for a new year party - hoping to enjoy a last game for 2017 and then see in the bells..

Dark Archive 4/5 5/5 *

Any options to jump into the new faction (even a reduced PP cost)? I have a sky druid sylph that is screaming out to jump ship across. If not then i have some maths to start on....
attempts to read better, nice was not about for any of the new ones coming in...

> Go ahead with multiclass brainstorms.

More Anecdotal evidence but this one is not a full Gunslinger but has the feat investment to get it to work while taking class levels of bard to get a good generalist.

Build: Support bard with ranged touch damage output.
Character: Alexander Killik - Ifrit Andoran Military
Classes: Gunslinger (Mysterious Stranger) 1, Bard (Arcane Duelist) X (currently 7)
Guns: lucky +1 pepperbox, +1 peperbox, double barreled rifle, single barrel rifle (also about 3 cheap pull out pistols as backup)
Feats: PBS, Precise, Rapid shot, Quick Draw
Argument for a dip: Bard is not an easy martial build without alot of focus - this gives a way to do solid damage at mid levels of the game and still do combat buffs. Has done massive crits and failed misfires across his adventuring but performs well in the majority of scenarios.

Using this build a bard can contribute with bardic performance still up using ranged touch attacks. Grit means solid damage (CHA to all attacks for 1 round for 1 grit) and lucky fixes at least one mess up per scenario.

Without the gunslinger level he would have to invest in more damage output on a bow and with base line str it would be a lot more sporadic along with a lot less hits...

A tall, dark haired man in expensive clothing holding a staff enters the room.

As a noble, Hellknight and loyal citizen of Cheliax the choice is obvious, Tamrin Credence must be the new leader of the Liberty's Edge. It is hard to contemplate that they could have a worse leader than the buffoon Maldris but Tamrin may just fit the bill and finally drive this remnant of Andoran into oblivion.

Tamrin Credence, first and last Halfling leader of the Liberty's Edge!

At least you can use your voting SLIP wisely...

There is a check before it starts going (but i don't think you can turn it off before it starts... maybe make it a disable device check before it activates)

"Those inspecting the statue can attempt a DC 20 Perception skill
check to notice that there is a seam around the waist of the
statue and the arms look like they might pivot. Anyone who
beats this check by 10 or more can notice that on the back of
each gauntlet, shrouded by energy is a matching gemstone
that looks almost like a button."

but yeah, I see what you mean about resolution its only be hit and then fix it...

Also death happens - back to the 1-5 slog...

Dark Archive 4/5 5/5 *

If you play across a few different areas then the 1-5 content also gets more diluted - We try to run a 1-5 table every month. in three different meetups.
This really means the 1-5s get the most dragging out and the evergreens only work so long for the longer term players. I like the number, we get good mileage out of the ones that come out for scheduling and when a new one comes out we (mostly) know everyone can play them. (apart from a few season 0 over the three years running we appear to have had a go at them all and are trying to give them a second run when they can be planned.
This means we can much more easily find a high level one to fill in than another not new 1-5 to schedule so the releases make this an easier job :)
The high levels have a ton of cool plot points and thread endings/continuations but the 1-5s are the main scheduling...

at least you get a copy and paste room :)

Product Description thread gave an update on that one:

So Area 6 refers to switched A-F and a boxed area A, but none of those seem to be marked on the map. I can kinda piece together the encounter, but I'm not 100% sure what's going on.
Yeah, that is my mistake.

The map was originally drawn horizontally, so with the way it is oriented in the adventure it goes like this...

C | F
-----
B | E
-----
A | D

I hope that solves it up...

Looking for one extra Legacy Race Boon for my contest. I have race boons that I am willing to trade for this, but I’d like to award more than one winner.

Thanks
Hmm

Sure i got one at a con recently and the contest was amusing (my legacy plan for Ky-rah snuck through with the use of the human option)

**just saw the other post - shout if you don't have any luck :) **

Dark Archive

Glad it helps - prepping to run it next weekend so in a similar boat and had done some digging :)

Dark Archive

As for where the motes go:

"Whenever a lever is pulled that causes the walls to rotate, the
motes vanish, leaving behind a nimbus of light and appear
in the 10-foot-square area closest to the lever that was pulled
without traveling through any of the walls (they stay in the
cell that they started in)."

So if F is pulled initially - turn to 2 long rooms and motes to C (glow in C)

Then if the PCs move down to E to reset the system it turns horizontal and Motes move closest (into F - glows in A and C)

Then onward wherever they pick next (or spread out etc..)

This is why I don't normally prep. Knowledge only inhibits the process, better to wing it and fill in the gaps with whatever sounds good. Worked when I was selling cars, works now with pathfinder.

The written trappings of an outmoded scenario are an unseen cage to the characters progression, only by throwing aside the scenario can you embrace true role playing...

...now did the session really get played?

Awesome Work on the AR and the CC - hopefully that has cleared a bit of space on the desk at least ;)

Just to check in - any idea if the PRD update is on the near horizon? I think this one will be of an impact on whether character need to be rejigged (trying to plan for attending cons and when i need to plan to fix a couple of the expected changeS)

Dark Archive 4/5 5/5 *

IC renouncing the path would do it (as in some ways it is the fluff part of the boon) - anything else is levelling your way to the quest. It does not even say you need to drop the boon if you miss a ROW sheet.

The Quest encounters aren't especially dangerous for lvl 1, with the exception of Crash in Silverhex Chronicles... That can be a TPK if the rolls are against the party.

I would advise to be wary of the honor quests as well, there are a couple of potentially dangerous ones here two (we had a few kills on the two tables we ran when it came out)
