10-98 Siege of Gallowspire Aide token questions


GM Discussion

Scarab Sages 4/5

Preparing to run this at PaizoCon, and I want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row for the con. There are a lot of moving parts for this aid token section, and I want to make sure I have it right.

1)In addition to the normal character everyone is bringing that they will play, each person needs can bring up to 3 of their other characters as “aid characters.” Aid characters must be 5th level of higher. PCs can fill in any gaps with ‘generic’ 4th level pathfinders.
2) there are five roles-Scout, muscle, healer, spellcaster, and guard. Each aid character must be assigned to one and only one roll. A table is limited to 5 of any given roll.
3)At the start of the game, each player can choose if they want their aid characters (but not generic pathfinders) To try a ‘heroic’ aid. Depending on how they roll, a heroic aid may enhance an aid, but also may prevent them from participating in future stuff. They may also need to spend prestige to avoid getting hurt from this.
4)Throughout the scenario, you there are Oppertunities to send Aid Characters on missions, but not if they were injured from a heroic aid. If these missions succeed, the whole house gains a benefit but the character also runs the risk of being injured or even dying.

So: assuming that’s all correct, I have a question: So on page 7, it says “Each time the scenario calls for the Tokens, they can give one of these tokens to a nearby table.” (And later says 2 if one of them is heroic). But I can only ever find one instance of when Aid tokens are to be distributed (as soon as people roll for heroic aid, at mustering). Is that right? Are there other times to distribute aid tokens?

Also: is my assessment correct?

VampByDay, I suggest if you have not already, that you go to the Paizo Organized Play page and follow the directions to Slack. Once there, in the general thread, find the pinned pfs10-98 request thread and ask to be added. The answers you seek are in the conversations on Slack. I believe they want those conversations to remain private until the scenario is released into the wild.

The link to the slack channel is inactive or has expired. Would someone from Organized Play please update accordingly or send me an invite link?

I could not get this link to work.

I am currently preparing this and found the answer the above question. I don’t know if this is a result of a change to the scenario text or if it was in the original version.

At the end of Part 1, as well as each time the table completes an encounter, the table can give one of these tokens to a nearby table.

@LZP: The slack links are no longer active.

This scenario will continue to be run. (I'm running it at PaizoCon Oz this weekend, and Tonya will be playing at my table!!!) But the GM advise and discussion is hidden behind a locked secret door and someone has thrown away the key. Is there any way to move the discussion threads from Slack to the forum?
