IIRC I signed up with my paladin, but it looks like we're probably good for frontliners, so here's everything I have in tier(ish):
Miklos Lebeda, Fighter 4/Rogue 4/Aldori Swordlord 1 (face/acrobatic frontliner)
Whaddaya guys want?
[PbP Gameday VI] GM Ladile and the Pathfinder Society Present: Reaping What We Sow Recruitment (New Players Welcome!)
1. Player Name: Andreas F
2. Are you new to PBP, Organized Play, or both?: Noooo... I started playing PFS in 2011 and got my first taste of PbP in 2013.
3. What excites you most about playing in this game?: I always find it interesting to play with inexperienced GMs/players. The possibility for seeing out-of-the-box thinking is high, and it keeps me from getting set in my ways :P
4. Tell me a little about yourself! What other games have you played? What are your hobbies?: I'm a Dane in his late twenties currently working towards a lab technician certificate. I've primarily played Pathfinder (and D&D 3.5e before that), but I've dabbled in other systems (7 Seas, GURPS, Exalted, Vampire: The Masquerade, Dark Heresy and probably more). Hobby-wise, it's just RPGs, but I did start playing when I was 9, and it suits me just fine.
5. Are you able to post at least once a day?: I usually check my PbP games at least twice a day, posting when necessary/relevant.
6. In order to keep the game moving along, sometimes I will bot players if a certain amount of time has passed since their last post. Do you give permission for me or the party to 'bot' your character as needed in combat or another situation?: Definitely. I'd hate to hold up the game.
7. Do you promise to tell me about upcoming vacations, busy times at work, conventions or other absences so we can bot you?: Indeed I will.
I'll gladly be the sixth player, if the seat's still open. I have a few characters in tier 1-2. Whaddaya need?
Oh, nice! This again. As with the "Baby It's Cold Outside", I have played most of these scenarios, but I can volunteer as a filler/cameo for Scions of the Sky Key Part 2 and Dead Man's Debt. I have a multitude of available characters, even Terril the Everchanging, who made an appearance last time, hasn't progressed out of the 1-5 range.
Of course, if there's a full party for the entire run, I'll graciously bow out.
Well, I might as well get the ball rolling on my Mummy's Mask game.
DM PatheticWretch has first dibs, of course.
Qstor, JAF0 and I'm Hiding In Your Closet can have a seat, if they still want it.
Whatever seats are left will be first come first served, though I'll give players who didn't get in any of the Emerald Spire tables preference.
The discussion thread is here, and it is a tier 1-2 evergreen module (the sanctioned parts we'll be playing at least).
@GM Evil: Yeah, Nadil's an old character. I used an Oread boon way back when to make him.
So to sum up, we have:
Jaysin Deckert , ranged fighter 7
My choice then demtermines the sub-tier:
Nadil or Viincent, tier 10-11 (no adjustment)
I'm fine with whatever, so what do the rest of you want?
Ok, I have a few free characters in this tier:
Nadil al'Gurat: "Classic" Summoner 11 (nothing fancy, some spells and an eidolon)
Which one do you guys want me to bring?
Judging by the sign-ups, we are missing a trap finder and perhaps a meat shield.
Meat shield-wise I have a Cavalier (Huntmaster) 2 or a suli Bloodrager 2.
Trap finding is not looking good at this level range, with only a brand new Ninja 1 with Disable Device +8 and Perception +5. Ninjas can't disable magical traps, though.
What would you guys prefer?
Name of PC: Sarra Balley
After rescuing the surviving Black Arrows (and flushing out the traitor almost immediately), the party assaulted the Graul Homestead itself. After breezing through the upper floors without finding the rangers' gear, they ventured into the basement where they ran into Mammy Graul's eldest son Hucker. The tight confines of Hucker's workshop chafed at Sarra, and in a fatally overconfident move, she decided to Rapid Shot the ogrekin while in melee with him. The first shot missed and Hucker succeeded on his AoO, nothing to worry about yet. The second AoO (yay for Combat Reflexes) wass a natural 20 followed by another natural 20 on the confirmation roll. Ouch... Power Attack was still in effect from Hucker's last turn so the damage was a total of 3d10+51. The result was 65 damage; a tall order for a already wounded 7th level bard, and the party could only look on in horror as Hucker's ogre hook pierced Sarra skull.

The Doctor manages to rile the bidders into three separate bidding wars; the Nethys priests against Baketra for the Buff lot, Khammayid Okhenti against Menya the Whip for the Weapon lot and Manaat Heshwah against the Meshhotens for the Osirion lot.
The winning bids are:
In addition to the items you wish to sell, there are also some things to buy. The most interesting items are:
With the lots entered into the auction, Dr. Phillip Hoka Dak tries to hear some gossip, but the other attendees disregard the half-orc. No rumors for you.
Who do you wish to convince to buy which lots? Remember that more than one bidder can be influenced to bid on the same lot. Just roll all the rolls at once, and yes, the Orator feat can be used here.
After "the incident", the good Doctor needs to pawn of the valuables that survived to fund future expeditions. With the help from his newfound ally (who is totally not a Pathfinder), he has discerned what will be able to sell at that planned auction at the Canny Jackal (listed prices are standard sell prices):
- 2x Potion of Darkvision (2x 150 gp)
The items can be split into lots of any size or internal relevance.
Before the auction starts, you can mingle with the guests, both to get a feel of the potential buyers and to try and influence any who might be interested in bidding on your lots. A Diplomacy (Gather Information) check is required to chat and learn rumors.
The attendees able to purchase any of your goods are:
- Baketra One of Wati's richest and most notorious gourmands.
Convincing the attendees to bid on your lots is a Diplomacy or Bluff check. The DC depends on whether or not the items interest them. A bidding war can be started, but with a cumulatively higher DC.

I'm planning on running the whole series in the near future, possibly, at least the first part, as part of the upcoming gameday.

So this is actually of interest to me - who is looking specifically for specials for 5 stars? I'd like to get a list going if at all possible for online planning stuff.
I've already passed the 150 game requirement, but I've only got one special under my belt so far. I am gming in the Year of the Shadowlodge pbp event though, so thanks Shifty!
"The City of Absalom is abuzz with excitement. The streets are full of revelers and feasting, as residents celebrate the city’s independence from tyranny. All seem most eager to witness the evening’s biggest event, the annual Passion of the First Siege of Absalom, where hundreds dress in elaborate costume, don fake armor and weaponry, and crowd the Irorium floor to participate in a mock combat, reenacting the first siege of Absalom. I suggest you do what you need to prepare yourselves and then get to the Irorium to find yourselves some seats."
Go ahead and introduce your characters as you walk towards the Irorium.
Welcome to my table of Year of the Shadow Lodge.
Please post your PFS#, Day Job and whether or not you're on slow progression.
To ensure that we finish in the allotted time (6-ish weeks), I will encourage you all to post at least once per day. Real life can of course get in the way of that, so for the pace's sake, have your stats readily available so I can bot you when necessary.
Otherwise, I look forward to playing with you guys!
If you're in need of more GMs, I'll gladly step up to the plate.
Seeing as a have trudged my way to 100+ games run, I have started to set my eyes on my 5th GM star. However, I have found an ambiguous passage in the guide regarding the requirements:
Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide p. 39 wrote:
First, a potential 5-Star GM must have run a total of 150 Pathfinder Society game sessions, including at least 50 different adventures and 10 or more Specials or Exclusive events over your entire history as a GM.
Does this mean that i need to run 10 different specials, or is that requirement separate from the one immediately before? It might just be me over analyzing the passage, but any clarification would be appreciated.
If you're running Frozen Fingers of Midnight, I'm game!
My half-elven cleric of Iomedae doesn't introduce himself... He has a herald for that!
"I present to you,
I seem to be having problems with reporting a scenario i GM'ed last night... As far as I can tell, I can't fill in the date properly. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, how did you fix it?
EDIT: I figured it out myself... Conclusion: I'm an idiot *facepalm*
