Just gonna pop in here and echo Painlord up above. I am not in this game, but Euan is an A++ GM that always brings his a-game so make sure you bring yours as well.

I'm certainly interested, always eager to play more Starfinder.

Not seeing any reputation boons anywhere.

Under My Account when you click the boons tab you can find them listed with the rest of the boons. They're worded like this:

Leshy Companion (Verdant Wheel) wrote:
Gain access to the Leshy Familiar feat as a 2nd level class feat, retraining your class feat selected at 2nd level if desired. Must be Liked by Verdant Wheel to purchase.

I will say the Boons page could use a better interface to be a little less overwhelming but for now that's what we've got.

I'm so excited for this. June is much too far away.

Hope to run into many of you in other AP's. Lots of characters here I would have loved to play with!

How are they planning to make that work? Are they going to wait until you table has completed book 1 (and thus stay a book behind you the whole way)? In all honesty, it's often a good idea to have the whole AP in front of the GM from the start, it often makes the plot work better if the GM is aware of the twists beforehand...

I can't speak for Kittenmancer but some players are very good at seperating character knowledge from player knowledge. I don't think they're the first to play in an AP they were also running.

Good luck all. The competition is stiff.

you didn't mention it, but what's your stance on magic item crafting? some GMs aren't fans and some adventures make it impractical.

Obviously the GM's opinion may vary, but the players guide says this:

There are so many good choices and so many wonderful combinations of groups that could happen.

I could run a second table, but I would have to limit my posting to an expectation of every other day (potential for daily still existing but not required on either my or anyone else's end).

If you would like to express an opinion on this, go right ahead. I've gone back and forth on it several times myself (pbp is slow enough even with once daily posting, but this AP allows so much RP opportunity that combat would not be the main hangup, etc etc). If you don't have an opinion on this option other than you'd rather that so more can play, just favorite this comment so I can get a rough count.

Am I correct in that this would be your first time GMing an AP? From your profile it might even be your first time GMing a PbP game.

If these are both true then I highly highly caution against a second table. I'd rather not get chosen at all, then end up in a game where the GM burns out, and if you have no experience GMing a play by post you should start slow.

It's a bigger commitment than it seems, and it takes a lot of patience from everyone involved. AP's usually take a year or two at least on these forums. Two games sounds reasonable, sure it's just two tables. But that's 10 characters, with feats and class abilities and stat blocks. Ten character histories and interactions that you need to play off of. Ten people that need you to clarify or adjudicate rules. Ten people worth of loot to track. 10 posts a day to rely on to move things forward. For two years.

If the groups act differently, than you may be recycling less posts than as suggested above and having to conduct the same scenario in two very different ways.

There are GM's that can handle that and do it well, but if this is your first foray, don't bite off more than you can chew. I say this as someone who burnt out as a player and a GM on these same forums because life took some wild turns and keeping up with these forums became overwhelming. You never know what can happen.

Run one table, indulge in the story you tell with those people and learn from it. If you want to come back later and start a second table then make that choice from an informed, experienced position.

If you have not already read it, check out:
Painlords Guide to PbP GMing

Having played through an entire AP with Painlord, I can attest that they know what they're talking about.

Quote:

VARIANT FEAT—NOBLE SCION

You are a member of one of the significant noble families of
Oppara, whether or not you remain in good standing with
your family. In many cases, these families are Imperialists
loyal to Maxillar Pythareus, and as such you either are a
black sheep or your family has cut you off entirely.
Prerequisites: Charisma 13 or Child of Oppara trait,
must be taken at 1st level.

To take the Noble Scion Variant that lets you be part of a major house you either need Child of Oppara or a Charisma of 13 or Higher. As long as you meet either prerequisite you can take the variant and be part of a larger noble house.

The trait just says you need the Noble Scion feat, it doesn't say "in addition to" the Child of Oppara trait.

Not sure if you're still interested in running this GM, but I'd love to sign up if you are. I'd need to run a pregen since I dont have any in range.

Just popping in here again to roll gold now that I've settled on a concept.

Gold: 4d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 3, 3) = 18

Sweet, actually managed above average. I should hopefully have my submission done by tonight or tomorrow. Lots of good character concepts here I'd love to play with!

Well, it's not what I voted for, but I'm definitely interested. This here is my dot while I work on something.

Make sure you check your GM credit from the "My Pathfinder Society" link in the header. Some time ago GM credits stopped showing up on my individual alias profiles, but still show up under that page.

Dark Archive

I would assume the normal 2 week abandonement period is shortened for a times game, especially since all the Gm's need to be in communication with one another, an absence would likely be noted sooner as well.

I did get an email with event name & number, but there was no reporting link.

There were links in the Update One and Update Two emails, mine initially went to my spam folder so it's worth checking to see if that's where they ended up.

In any case this is the reporting link for Gameday games that have been completed.

It doesn't, actually. You can just right click and choose either Download to keep it locally, or Make a Copy to add an editable copy to your own google drive.

Ironically when I clicked the link for the website went down. It is significantly more stable however, as when I can get on at least I'm logged in and able to post.

I have a Cavalier that I love that was made for a Kingmaker that ended before the first book, and I'd love to dust her off. Will run through her stat block and make sure everything makes sense and submit when it all looks good.

With the limited options for Starfinder races, not only is the pool to choose from small, but many of the icons are similar, or are actually the same person. Which can be confusing on a map or when reading posts.

Also on a forum dedicated to playing your own character that you designed, I'd say the ability to represent that PC is pretty important.

I see what you're saying, that it's more Quality of Life then an actual problem, but for me it would significantly improve my enjoyment when playing Starfinder games. I'm already in a few and the avatar redundancy had gotten a little confusing at times.

Dark Archive

I made a post about how do it HERE

Although to add to that post I'd say, remember to click defocus/unfocus when you're done, so you can see new threads again.

The only entry about it I can find is the following "Shirrens rely primarily on telepathy for communication, speaking audibly with their mandibles only in formal situations."

That doesnt read to me like taboo, it reads to me more like preference or habit. If there is something else that provides more context, I would love to see it.

I don't necessarily disagree but I think it's a bit too vague. Additional context is the whole reason I opened this thread.

Unfortunately there hasn't been much more context yet given the small number of printed materials.

Seems pretty obvious to me that they can speak just fine, it's just not the preferred form of communication.

"Not preferred" and "Social Taboo" are not the same thing. If it's just minor preference, then who cares, if Shirren consider it appalling, they may avoid it in situations that might require some sort of vocalization.

All published material so far has them speaking exclusively through telepathy.

Dark Archive

THe comms or Voice Modulation might work, or maybe I'll see if there is some way to expand the telepathy.

There is a Mindcirclet and a Psychic Booster in the CRB that can help, but will need to wait until I have a little more in the way of creds.

Dark Archive

I just checked the blog post that revealed the Shirren, and the one with the Shirren Iconic Mystic and neither presents the telepathy that way.

It's a realistic reason however, and one I might default to, but I'm going to wait a little bit, hoping some more info comes out.

I only realized it because I'm in a combat with my Shirren Mystic at the moment, and he's more than 30ft away from any ally, so I started considering whether he would use his voice and realized I have no definitive answer 1 way or the other.

Dark Archive

1 person marked this as a favorite.

So, the CRB says that Shirren only speak outloud in Formal situations. Their telepathy is limited to 30ft.

This would be severely limiting in combat, as any ally more than 30ft would the be outside the range of a Shirrens ability to communicate.

I can't find anything saying wether or not Shirren are capable of physically speaking languages other than their own. Has anyone else caught anything that suggests this. Would it be completely unlike a Shirren to shout audibly in combat?

I'll probably assume they can speak all languages out loud until otherwise mentioned, but I'm still unsure as to whether or not they would.

Checking in from work, the pc I initially signed with is still wrapped up in a scenario, when I get home I'll figure out who I've got left.

Dark Archive

Think I'm almost done with a character concept too, just need to decide a few more background elements. Looking forward to seeing what everyone creates.

Looks like a number of us are/were checking mechanic out haha, I was pretty intrigued by the class too.

Envoy and operative look interesting as well though and I'm sure once I get a look at the book something else will jump out at me.

Dark Archive

I could print them, but since I only play PFS on these forums there's not really a need for it. The older ones came in full sheet form so the objectives were right under the bonuses which made it easier. I could rearrange the images with another program but I'm not sure why after 8 seasons of full sheet versions the half sheet is now the only one available.

Dark Archive

Operative or Envoy look interesting to me, with Solarian coming up 3rd.

Dark Archive

Is this using the standard Starfinder society pregens? If so they're up and ready for download here.

If not, it's still worth checking out while we wait for the official stuff to drop.
