Hi all,

I've been googling my eyes out for a chronological order in which to play the season 4 scenarios in which to enjoy the metaplot of that season to its fullest.

I know the core metaplot as it were is centered around scenarios 04-8, 04-10, 04-12, 04-20 and 04-26, but where do 04-00 and 04-02 fit in? And what about the subplots?

Anyone out there having a shortlist lying around maybe?

Scenarios are released in chronological order of events, more or less.

In terms of subplots, take a look at this thread and this flowchart. Often, plots span multiple seasons.

Cool, thanks.
With that flowchart and thread, I came up with the following order:

03-I1 In Service to Lore
03-I2 To Delve the Dungeon Deep
03-I3 A Vision of Betrayal
04-01 Rise of the Goblin Guild
04-18 The Veteran's Vault
04-19 The Nightmarch of Kalkamedes
04-15 The Cyphermage Dilemma
04-07 Severing Ties
04-09 The Blakros Matrimony
04-14 My Enemy's Enemy
04-11 The Disappeared
04-02 In Wrath's Shadow
04-23 Rivalry's End
04-03 The Golemworks Incident
04-13 Fortress of the Nail
04-05 The Sanos Abduction
04-17 Tower of the Ironwood Watch
04-06 The Green Market
04-22 Glories of the Past part 1
04-24 Glories of the Past part 2
04-25 Glories of the Past part 3
04-00 Race for the Runecarved Key
04-08 The Cultist's Kiss
04-10 Feast of Sigils
04-12 Refuge of Time
04-20 Words of the Ancients
04-26 The Waking Rune

That will make for a semi-continuing campaign story with a decesnt intro, build-up and finale, and even the APL falling just about in the required levels.
I cut out the two Tian scenarios and the (too hard) Storval Stairs scenario to make the story work.

Opinions, anyone?

Be aware that 'To Delve the Dungeon Deep' and 'A Vision of Betrayal' are no longer legal for PFS play.

Chronologically, 4-18 The Veteran's Vault takes place after 4-13 Fortress of the Nail, as the party's actions in 4-13 have an impact in 4-18. Actually making that work in a semi-coherent order might be tricky, unless you squeeze both in at fifth, which makes 4-13 rough.

Thanks for the feedback!

@Paz: it's going to be a homebrewed short-sessioned story-driven campaign-thingy experiment. So I'm not restricted to restricted scenarios :)

@UndeadMitch: squeezing in 4-18 after 4-13 results in:
03-I1 In Service to Lore
03-I2 To Delve the Dungeon Deep
03-I3 A Vision of Betrayal
04-01 Rise of the Goblin Guild
< snip >
04-19 The Nightmarch of Kalkamedes
04-15 The Cyphermage Dilemma
04-07 Severing Ties
04-09 The Blakros Matrimony
04-14 My Enemy's Enemy
04-11 The Disappeared
04-02 In Wrath's Shadow
04-13 Fortress of the Nail
04-23 Rivalry's End
04-18 Veteran's Vault
04-03 The Golemworks Incident
04-05 The Sanos Abduction
04-17 Tower of the Ironwood Watch
04-06 The Green Market
04-22 Glories of the Past part 1
04-24 Glories of the Past part 2
04-25 Glories of the Past part 3
04-00 Race for the Runecarved Key
04-08 The Cultist's Kiss
04-10 Feast of Sigils
04-12 Refuge of Time
04-20 Words of the Ancients
04-26 The Waking Rune

This still keeps the level requirements, but needs an extra Tier 1-5 scenario in there to get them back on track. Any suggestions what would fit after Rise of the Goblin Guild but before The Nightmarch of Kalkamedes?

Personally, I would recommend The Gods' Market Gamble. In my opinion, it's the best low-level scenario that the campaign has ever produced. Alternatively, the Temple of Empyreal Enlightenment is also fantastic.

Gods' Market Gamble:
Our VC cautioned against this scenario specially for tier 1-2 parties because the encounter with the archer can be deadly. But if you're doing a "home game" if you wanted raise dead or other things available for a low level party, I wouldn't be concerned too much.

Good one, thanks!

I was thinking about putting in 5-08 The Confirmation. Would that be an okay choice after those three intro scenarios?
