My daughter had this idea for a cheerful, chaotic good cleric of Groetus that I really like. The cleric happily goes on adventures, and is just SO EXCITED TO SEE HOW IT ALL TURNS OUT! ISN'T IT EXCITING? WE’RE GONNA GET TO SEE HOW EVERYTHING ENDS!
This reminds me a bit of a character concept that I had (and am actually playing). A CN Wizard focusing on summoning. Went to the Acadame in Korvosa. While there accidentally messed up a spell and ended up glimpsing into the void. He went quite insane, and now secretly worships Nylarthotep. He joined the Pathfinder Society to search for rituals and relics that can help him usher Nylarthotep into the world, and prevent the other old gods / threats to Golarian from getting here first.
He spends most of his time ranting about how we are all doomed.
I am currently in a group working our way through the Emerald Spire superdungeon. We started the fourth level and our GM has disappeared ( gone for ~ 2.5 weeks with no word). I don't necessarily know if the group is ready to ask for a backup GM yet, but I was hoping someone could tell me if we are far enough into the level to get a backup GM if that is the way we want to go, or just scrap the whole thing and move on. Can someone who has played or run the mod take a look at the spoiler below and tell us if it is worth getting a new GM to come finish the level out for us?
Description of where we are on level 4 of superdungeon:
We entered the level, talked to some troglodytes. They gave us a tour, showed us their gross meat cauldron and kept vaguely talking about their god. Eventually they showed us their god (the weird magnetic box thing). Where we ended, we had gone up to the previous level, gathered up a bunch of pots and pans and other metal to make a sacrifice. We came back and made the sacrifice (tossing a bunch of metal onto the magnetic box). This is when our GM disappeared - we haven't had any combat on this level, but we have had a decent amount of RP. Maybe this is just an atypical level that is pretty combat light? Thanks for reading!
Everyone might need to be a bit more diligent about posting, but I am confident we could squeeze one more in before game day. I'm happy to gm something, either death on the ice or something else.
Oath of the Ovrrwatched and Death on the Ice are the only two more on our list in the level range for this group, both of which Mike has already played, so maybe he should take the next game here. I'd probably prefer oath of the Ovrrwatched so I don't need to burn a replay (don't have many of those...).
I played in the group with SodiumTelluride. Very cool module. Would recommend. I do think it is a good idea to play with a GM you know and trust - I've heard some horror stories of things being run wrong, or forgotten that result in party wipes and whatnot (which I somewhat understand - there are some very complicated bits to run in it).
I'm a bit limited on characters - I have a level 11 that is getting parked until some friends get to that level, then we are going to do an AP, and then right into Eyes of the Ten, so he's not really available. Beyond that I have a level 6 (almost 7), plus an unbuilt level 5 character (lots of pregens and some AP stuff in campaign mode...)
Just an FYI, I forgot that my family vacation coincided with the start of the gameday. I will do my best to nominally participte in this game this week, but it may fall by the wayside. I will be 100 percent back in starting next saturday, and should be able to post quite often after that. I hope this doesn't cause any major issues here. Still looking forward to it!
So we have a Paladin, Bard, Druid, Wizard, and Barbarian? I'm just getting back to the forums after Gencon and haven't made my character yet. How is the druid at healing? Should I make a cleric to cover that base? My initial instinct is to make a Ranger, but I can make a cleric if we need the healing.

I tossed my name in the hat too for the standard, even though you said you'd be doing first come first serve. Is this for a game starting nowish, or for the game day?
Flynn is able to swiftly lead the party through the crowd to the entrance of the lbarary. As you enter the library, you are greeted by a Taldan man named Tobias.
Ah, you must be the group here to do some research in the restricted section of the library.
He looks the party over and seems a bit off-put
Well, you certainly are an... interesting group of, ahem, 'scholars'. Well, you have permission to be here I suppose... for two hours at least. Do see that you don't make a mess and please, don't even try to reshelve your own books. It will take us weeks to get them back in the right spot.
He walks quickly through the libray as he speaks, eventually arriving at the restricted section.A large table stands at the center of this large room, whose walls are lined with rows upon rows of inset shelves. A set of double doors is the only way into the room, and two stone statues depicting bearded scholars with open books are the only other decorations.
You discover a section of the west wall has hinges and swings outward
Assuming at least one person makes the first perception check, everyone make a second one.
The western statue's right arm can be shifted up and down, changing which word on the opposite wall it is pointing at. On the opposite wall is a carving of a scroll depicting the words "Innovation, respect,
knowledge, courage, integrity, honor, excellence, glory"
Knowledge History or Local DC15:
The virtues of Honor, Courage, and Glory are most important to the Lion Blades

Baypony, how do I get a link to show up in the header to my alias like you did?
