"Failed mission" during a PFS module


GM Discussion

Dark Archive 5/5

Hi, fellow DM

I just finish running the Midnight Mirror module.

Spoiler:
All players except for one survive but they let escape the other BBEG who just kill Anya and Stepan. They manage to save the boy and after discovering the truth about the "true heir" decide to let him become the next Baron Boroi.

So, how can I manage the result in PFS ?

I think they all earn their 3 XP, but I think they don't deserve their 4 PA. Can I gave only 2 PA for this module, or 3 or 1 ?

The guide doesn't gave any answer to my thought ...

They completed all of the module, they get all of the Fame. The only time a person would get less Fame during a module is if they only played 1/3 or 2/3 of it. How that is handled is outlined in the PFS Guide.

If they played it from start to finish, give the players 4 Fame.

If they completed the adventure, the get full rewards, including all four PP. You don't get a choice in the matter.

EDIT: What Nebten said.

Might want to spoiler all of that.

(Netopalis, this is the GM-Discussion board. Your suggestion has merit, as usual, but we're expecting spoilers here. Perhaps it would be better to add the name of the module in the thread title, so that people know *which* adventure is being discussed.)

Ouch! yeap, needs a spoiler on the mod name. Or the name in the title. (Drat! one I haven't played!) I read it as Midnight Mauler (a scenario I have played... not the mod, which I haven't)

Sorry, you're right - the name of the adventure in the title would suffice. I was just saying that 'cause I came here expecting a general question about mission failures. Seems to have been taken care of either way. Thanks!

Sorry, your right, but I tried to be vague enough about the end of the module.

I will be more carefull the next time !

I've run this module, so

my two cents:
the catch here is what you gave the PCs as a mission in the first place, since the module doesn't give you a Society tie-in. I had given them the mission of "find Anya Boroi, find out what's up with her, assist her in any way you can". In any case, I would give them the full PP if they succeeded in destroying the Mirror demiplane, since that is the core of the module (Stepan cannot continue using the mirror, the town is no longer poisoned by the shadow essence seeping into it, and so on) and can be considered its "win condition". Did they catch the shae leader, btw?
