Welcome to my Play-by-Post!

I'm Thunderspirit, and I've been running games since the early 1980s. (Yes, I'm old, and yes, I've seen a lot of editions.) I started playing PFS back in Season 0, but didn't really "get into it" until the end of Season 3. I'm a Venture-Lieutenant in Chicago. If you're ever in the area, or you need help finding games/conventions there, PM or email me, and I'll endeavor to set something up if I can. :-)

Expectations for my play-by-post games:
----------------------------------------------
1) Real Life Comes First [tm]. This is a game, after all.

2) Try to post at least once daily. (If you're going to be gone for 24+ hours, try to give a heads up before you go. But that said: remember #1.)

3) Saving throws first. If you have a saving throw to make, have it be the first dice of the post, before you roll anything else. Also,
you can always preemptively roll Perception, Disable Device, etc. — this makes the game run more efficiently. I ask only that you make sure pogs are placed in their actual position in case your choices have, shall we say, consequences...

4) Animal companions, eidolons, phantoms, etc. For play-by-post, I have them go on the same initiative as their PC. (This is slightly different than what I do in face-to-face games.) When you post, play your PC first, then the pet.

5) Know your obscure rules. Most people know how the basics work, but if you have a character who uses something less than common, please know how it works (Handle Animal, Sunder, Grapple, etc.).

Please post in this thread with this format.
Player Name:
PC Name:
PFS#:
Faction:
Day Job: Feel free to roll now.
Notes: Anything I should know; passive abilities, boons that are way out there, etc. If you have abilities that are immediate actions that interrupt an enemy, I'll be as fair as possible, but you can help me out by telling me under what conditions you typically use it.

I do ask that the header for your PC have saves, initiative, and Perception modifier in them. (If you're not sure how, just ask and we'll lend a hand.)

That about covers it. Looking forward to the game!

Hello all!

Planning to begin this right after Gen Con, as I know at least one of my players will be in attendance.


Five-star Hound of Tindalos. Er, GM. Whatever. | RoW Encounter Map |

You are making your way through the crowded streets of Absalom on a mundane mission, the sort that is usually issued to Pathfinder Society neophytes. But you all were hanging about the Grand Lodge on a warm midsummer morning; and if there's one thing Venture-Captain Ambrus Valsin hates, it's idle Pathfinders.

He promptly sent you off to The Coins with, essentially, a grocery list for the evening repast. This isn't the sort of thing you expect to do at your experience level, and you made no bones about it. But Valsin simply waved his hand and sent you on your way, and that was the end of that discussion.

Among the throngs on the midday streets of Absalom, a gnarled beggar passes by. A copper for th' poor, good folk. A copper for th' poor! Here but for th' grace o' th' gods go ye! His grimy fist deftly slips a crinkled piece of paper into Bishop's palm before vanishing back into the swarm of longshoreman, merchants, stevedores, and other pedestrians.

Kn (local) DC 10:

The Saucy Wench is one of the few permanent structures in the Grand Bazaar in the Coins District of Absalom. It is a four-story mead hall of ill repute.

Kn (local) DC 15:

The Saucy Wench is also one of Osprey's favorite places to disseminate secretive orders from the Society to its member Pathfinders.

In preparation and anticipation to begin Thornkeep in the wilds of the River Kingdoms starting in January, we've scheduled two scenarios which are also set in the River Kingdoms.

  • 0-17: Perils of the Pirate Pact (levels 1-7)

On the schedule is 5-14: Day of the Demon (levels 3-7). We'll also have a table of something for brand-new PCs (maybe Master of the Fallen Fortress, maybe The Confirmation, maybe something else) to support the
Occult Adventures Playtest...and the associated spiffy boon available for it.

List formatting appears to work on the regular messageboards...

  • one
  • two
  • buckle my shoe

...but not on the event creation part of the site.

It's not an end-of-the-world deal-breaker, obviously; but I know they've worked there in the past cos I've used them, even though none of my events have them in it now. Just curious whether that was an unintended bug or an intended feature for that part.

Welcome!

All things being equal, I'd prefer to run this at 1-2 or 3-4, for the sake of continuity if someone wants to play all the scenarios sequentially. But it's open to 1-7, so if we wind up playing 6-7, so be it.

  • PFS 0-05: Mists of Mwangi (levels 1-5)
    This is the first foray into the infamous Blakros Museum in Absalom. It's become a staple centerpoint of trouble in the city, and this delve began its well-earned reputation.

  • PFS 4–03: The Golemworks Incident (levels 5-9)
    A horror-themed scenario that begins in Magnimar and ends with players on the edge of their seats.

In the snowy lands of Irrisen, the witch queen Baba Yaga likes to keep her eyes on all her children, and she does so through her chicken-legged huts and their resident guardian dolls. Made in the image of her famous Dancing Hut, these strange huts watch the borders of this frozen land, keeping foreigners out while keeping the Irriseni in. According to the legends, If a hut dances around and refuses to let you in through its tiny door, you must stand in front of it and loudly call out,

"Hut, O hut, turn your back to the woods and your front to me."
