PFS Gameday VII (and beyond) - The King is Dead Boring! (multi-scenario recruiting)


Recruitment


OK, it is once again that time!

In and around Gameday, for the past two years, I've started small 6 scenario runs, with the same group of PC's for each.

The 2016 version was in and around Irrisen, 2017 took us to the Mwangi Expanse.

Now for this year's version!

The 2018 iteration shall be in the glorious country of Taldor, pulling on a few entries from years past.

So, am looking for 5 (possibly 6) people interested in RP and interaction with a static group, and willing and able to play all of the following scenarios

0.24 Decline of Glory
0.29 The Devil We Know, Part I - Shipyard Rats
0.30 The Devil We Know, Part II - Cassomir's Locker
0.41 The Devil We Know, Part III - Crypt of Fools
0.48 The Devil We Know, Part IV - Rules of the Swift
2.21 The Dalsine Affair

Obviously, it will run past Gameday, by a fair bit... but the intention is that those scenarios that happen during the Gameday window will be reported as such, the remainder reported normally. From the prior two goes, it should take about 6 or 7 months to finish them all.

Though all 6 are tier 1-7, I am hoping to run them all in the 3-4 tier (or higher)... though will depend on interest.

My intention is to start as soon as I can get a group that will work, so the first scenario will probably occur before Gameday starts, with the 2nd and 3rd falling within Gameday, and the remainder outside again.

This is not a first come first serve, or any kind of lottery, recruitment. Due to the longer duration, I will try to select a group that will work over long run, as well as to ensure the game falls in the desired tiers without overpowering everything and sucking the fun out of it all! 1 post a day, minimum... more frequent even better!

Newer players and RPers encouraged! Fun has been had by all!


How could I NOT be interested? Is this starting from scratch or?

I fail at reading. Dale would certainly be interested, or another fine Sir or Ma'am.


I'm already hoping to use Dale for the reunion tour, he would not be available for this if so!

So another sir or ma'am might work better if that gets off the ground. =)

Hey EM! I was in your Irrisen group and would love to bring Masym back for this...but he has already played in one of the scenarios -- 0.30 The Devil We Know, Part II - Cassomir's Locker.

He could do the first two scenarios however, then rejoin the group for the rest of the campaign arc!

Silver Crusade

Wow, this looks like a ton of fun! I would love to apply. I'm EwokBanshee, an experienced PbPer. I've participated in a longer PbP campaign before and had a lot of fun! Lumo here is a level 4 Cleric, who is a front liner first, with some healing abilities thrown in.

Ah ok wasn't sure if that was going to fly. Then consider a level 3 melee slayer or a level 3 or 4 grippli druid with giant slug companion... Sounds like the slayer may ruffle less fancy feathers.

Silver Crusade

I'm interested in taking part, but the best I have to offer is Fifi Vanaash, a level 1 (one scenario away from level 2!) Sacred Servant of Sarenrae. As a player, I can offer 2+ posts per day, and really give it my all when it comes to intra-party interactions.

All around, she's really fun! But I understand if it's not possible.

Sovereign Court

Baronet Marcus Vulpares Fantailler, Son of Marcus Vultulus Fantailler, Heir to the Fantailler family estate would be proud to represent the greatest nation in all of Golarion.

I need to check his papers when I get home, but he has several GM/module chronicles that will kick in at various times, but I'll make sure to take some chronicles as slow track in order to keep roughly in the same tier as the rest of the group should I be granted this opportunity to represent the greatest nation in all of Golarion.

I can generally get 2+ posts in per day with the exception of weekends that can get awfully busy and 1-2 throughout the whole weekend is more normal.

I would LOVE to participate. I haven't played any of those scenarios. I'm a reliable poster, and a big fan of role playing.

I would be bringing either:

- Midge, a chipper level 2 (4 XP) halfling sorceress with the celestial bloodline.
- Everbloom, a sly level 2 (5 XP) kitsune wood kineticist with a fondness for power who's not nearly as nice as she seems.
- Ayla Vivindor, a level 2 (4 XP) gnome rogue whose a chatterbox willing to do what it takes to get the job done! She also writes over the top adventure novels about her exploits.

Thanks for your consideration.

Wow! Midge! Had tons of fun with her in our previous adventure. Really loved the sisterly dynamics. (at least to Fifi, the little chipper was kind of like a big sister)

Thanks, Fifi! I appreciate that. She's one of my favourites, actually. She tends to forge a really strong bond with at least one or two of the other agents she's with.

I have Nuethro here that is available to take part in a dedicated 6 chronicle run. I'm able to post 2+ per day, including weekends. I often check multiple times per day for new posts on the games I take part in.

Nuethro is a Level 2 (XP 4) Unchained Monk.

Sovereign Court

Checked Marcus's XP totals and here's the deal
Current XP: 5.5 (Level 2)
At levels 3, 4, and 5, he'll get 1.5 XP from Plunder and Peril (Slow track chronicles). I'd be happy to play normal or slow track for any scenarios in order to maintain subtiers as needed.

Marcus is a Barbarian... probably a terrible one. He is trained in Diplomacy and Knowledge (Nobility), prefers dirty tricks to real fighting, and his version of a rage is more like a noble brat having a temper tantrum.

Scarab Sages

I would be very interested!

This is the character I would like to play and she is level 3 now.

Character: Zaarah Katsu
PFS: 314670-4
XP: 6
Faction: Scarab Sages but will shift to Sovereign Court after the faction is dissolved
Class: Swashbuckler 1 / Magus 2

You can read in my posts that I am very RP focused.

Thanks for offering this opportunity. ;-)

This is to begin August 13 for GameDay?

If so, I feel confident Hanzi Logain, recently of New Oppara in Goka would fit right in here.

He is a Nagaji Samurai, level 5. A ronin in the service of the society after a certain civil war unseated the Jade Regent.

I have a backup character or 3 if you want me to switch.

The first Chronicle will before Gameday. The 2nd and 3rd will be part of Gameday.


Aye, what Nuethro said.

The hope is to start relatively soon.


After further reviewing timelines and characters, I must regretfully withdraw from this awesome opportunity.

This will be an amazing string of games. I can't complement EMGM enough on the Mwangi Experience. Enjoy the run guys.


Begone, miscreant!

Lots of good applicants thus far... so might be able to get this sorted before too long.

(I admit to wanting to try to work Fifi in... if only for the Sarenrae element.)

We'll see how the tiers work out... it'll be close. Math is hard!

Do seem to be a bit melee heavy on the applicants thus far though. Hrmm...


@Eric - I noticed you were looking to sign Masym up for one of Ladile's games... Unsure on how to juggle that =)

@eddv - You have anything level 3(ish) and not melee in that stable of yours =)


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Sorry EM:GM Masym is not eligible for one of the scenarios you provided The Devil We Know so he would have to drop out at that point anyway :(


Ah, but I had a way to work that in =)

I r clever that way.

Up to you.

(Besides, Ladile's is a 5-9!)

Silver Crusade

Thank you for your consideration! Was getting a bit daunted by the fact that Fifi is the lowest leveled character presented thus far.

Here's a link to the adventure Fifi and Midge shared together. As a brief summary, she's a really kind girl, that just enjoys spreading Sarenrae's wisdom and righting wrongs. She's also a tad clueless and has a habit of falling for every male individual she meets!

Anyways, I understand if it's not possible nonetheless. Wouldn't want to make the party babysit the newbie!

Okay ya talked me into it! I'll see if I can swap another PC for Ladile's game :)

I mentioned it only because worship of Sarenrae is banned in Taldor. =)

It adds an extra RP element to things!

Whoah! Did not know that! If Fifi manages to get in on the fun, then I'm sure it will be fun.

Bah! Any good Taldan should be willing to handle their disputes face to face with a duel of blades to first blood, or a good bout of fisticuffs.


Alright, will probably close this tomorrow.

Not all the melee chars will be making it in, unfortunately... despite Marcus' thoughts on Taldan proclivities for such things =)

If folks have non-martial alternates (lvl 3 or 4) they might want to use as well, let me know!

Silver Crusade

@EM

I do actually!

May I Present:

Londo Greenbottle, Level 4 Half-Orc Spiritualist. He has already been on a heck of a character journey, having started as a disillusioned former crusader from Taldor who was haunted by the spirits of those he wrong had a hand in killing during the Third Crusade. Since then, he has partnered up with the Spirit of a worshipper to Roidira, the nihilistic god of the void and has gone on a Quest for Truth and Redemption. This took him to Heaven itself where he realized that....he needed to devote himself to Sarenrae. Since then, he has returned to a town scarred by the Third Crusade to save it from further paranoia fueled destruction.

I think a return to Taldor to face the consequences of worshipping the Dawnflower would go quite nicely.

Still too melee?

I have 3 other characters with no particular attachments to Taldor in range that fit the bill of being 'actual non-melee':

Glenn Kerosin - a level 3 Grippli Alchemist, specializing in Mycology from the Mwangi Expanse. The society just pays his bills and lets him gain access to exotic forms of fungi.

Thornberry - She talks to animals! A level 3 Leshy Warden Druid who is almost certainly going to result in me needing to learn the rules for advancing a leshy. A nice set of control spells.

Abatton Ekujae - level 2 Arcanist - An Ekujae elf who suffers from 'the curse' (actually a bat-skinwalker) and has been ejected from the tribe. Attended the Magaambyan school of magic and now travels the world in search of profit and a new tribe to fit in with. Interestingly has already played Birthright Betrayed, so already has some exposure to Taldor/

Hey GM, instead of Zaarah I could also jump in with her brother Kioshi.

Character: Kioshi Katsu
PFS: 314670-1
XP: 6
Faction: Scarab Sages
Class: Wizard 3


2d20 ⇒ (20, 5) = 25
2d20 ⇒ (1, 7) = 8

Alrighty then!

Recruitment now closed!

Were 8 folks who applied, so will go with 6 players, to leave out as few as possible!

Anyway, will go with:

Eric/Masym
Fifi
Marcus (though might ask you to go slow on one of them)
meloriel/Midge
Zaarah
eddv/one of the 3/4 ones

This just gets us into the 3-4 tier for all.

Already created a discussion thread, for folks to chime in on. A Gameplay thread will follow later, once I figure out how I want to start.

Thanks to all that applied!
