The daughters of Absalom's mysterious Blakros family have long been among the most pursued maidens in the Inner Sea. Now the family's matriarch approaches the Pathfinder Society to help her break a centuries-old pact with the denizens of the Plane of Shadow to save her twin daughters from a life of servitude at the hands of the Onyx Alliance. Heading into the fan-favorite adventuring location of Blakros Museum, the PCs have only a short amount of time to break the Penumbral Accords and solidify the Pathfinder Society's ties to the powerful Blakroses.

To join sign up here: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/calendar/?id=1017
AND post to this thread your PC's Fantasy Grounds XML and a copy of your last PFS chronicle sheet for this character (unless they are new of course). Your place is not confirmed until I get this information.

April 28th, 2013, 13:31

You already have my XML files for Matthius the witch and Jeeves his familiar.

Also its a new character so he doesn't have any chronicle sheets.


April 28th, 2013, 19:02

You should already have my files for Rayklann, except for the chronicle sheets as he's a new character.

I look forward to the game!!


April 29th, 2013, 20:22
Hi Rob and guys-I shall scan my chronicle sheet to you-I think you have my PF number.

April 30th, 2013, 03:35
Interested here. I am playing this character on Friday night for the first time, so I'll have to send you the chronicle from than on Sat (if it's sent back already). ;)

April 30th, 2013, 03:36
And the attachment....

April 30th, 2013, 09:30
Cool, well if everyone turns up there's at least 4 players so we have a game :-)

I have everyone else's XML files since we worked on the characters together.

Better nag your GM Tymire to get that chronicle in time ;-)

April 30th, 2013, 18:27
So let me post my character. I'm a bit confused, to be honest... Shouldn't I be able to connect with a local character to a locally run server?

I played one PFS game online but didn't receive a chronicle yet... The DM said, it's on it's way with .... SNAIL MAIL ...

April 30th, 2013, 19:06
Getting the XML means I can set things up before the game and check it over.
Actually I'm just following the procedure set down by Trenloe. This is the first time I've run PFS game with Fantasy Grounds so I'm just doing what everyone else does till I know any different ;-P

May 1st, 2013, 00:40
New at this too, but from what I have seen time is a huge issue. We ran 1-2 hours late for both games PFS games I have played on line so far (first steps 1 and 2). Doing it this way makes it so that the GM can review everything before hand and we don't waste 1/2 hour inputing characters in the server.

May 1st, 2013, 10:41
Yeah we do need to get this done in one session so won't have time to mess around (well guess it's a Saturday so if people don't mind going to bed at 3am we do)

If anyone is buying or selling any equipment since they've played before with the same character can you post the list of items with the cost to the forum here, I need to put that stuff on your chronicle sheet.

If you feel like posting a description of your character that would be cool too :-)

I'll have the server up and running a couple of hours before the start time so everyone can make sure their connection is ok and everything works. Please don't leave it until the last minute.

Venture-Captain Drandle Drang looks tired as he calls an
emergency meeting in the middle of night at his chambers in
the Grand Lodge. “I’m sorry to call you in on such short notice
and on such a dark night, but a friend of the Society needs your
help immediately.” From an adjoining chamber, an elegantly
dressed woman of middle age with olive skin and long, straight
black hair and piercing eyes steps into the room. “Allow me
to introduce to you Hamaria Blakros, of the esteemed Blakros
family, whose name I’m sure you all know.”
Hamaria sits at Dreng’s side, smooths her satin dress over
her knees, and speaks in a clear though pained voice. “I’m afraid
my forebears made a terrible mistake, and I need you to help
remedy the situation. When the Blakroses were first gaining a
financial and social foothold centuries ago, my ancestors made
a pact called the Penumbral Accords with a strange organization
on the Shadow Plane called the Onyx Alliance, which granted
us trade routes through its dark realm to avoid unpleasant
searches, tariffs, and questions among the many parties with
whom we traded. At the time, this was an invaluable service,
but as our wealth and influence grew, the benefits became less
pronounced. Now, almost five centuries later, we no longer
want to pay the ongoing price of this agreement. Since that
time, we’ve been providing a steady stream of slaves to the
Onyx Alliance... including the eldest of our daughters each
generation. This year we have two eldest daughters—my twins
Eleanir and Michellia—and I refuse to let them be taken!
“But we can’t actively break the Penumbral Accords ourselves.
We don’t know all the details other than our end of the bargain,
which requires us to deliver slaves to our very own Blakros
Museum on the night of each new moon—and to deliver the
eldest Blackros daughter of each generation on the new moon
after her 21st birthday. We are told to stay away until dawn,
and have honored this command thus far. In every instance
for generations, we’ve returned to find no sign of the slaves
or our own heirs left in the building. They’ve got some device
that lets them take our daughters to their plane, something
that only functions one night a month, and only until dawn.
That night is tonight, and my Eleanir and Michellia are already
there! I need you to get in before the sun rises and deactivate
or destroy whatever allows them to keep stealing our people.
If that prevents them from ever threatening us and holding
the Penumbral Accords over our heads again, even better.”
Dreng leans forward. “You understand, I’m sure, how valuable
our relationship with the Blakros family is to the Decemvirate.
Their assets at the museum are immense, and assisting the
Lady Hamaria tonight will go along way to ensuring that both
her family and our organization can form a long-lasting alliance
that will benefit all parties.” He glances at Hamaria, who nods
once in agreement. “Hurry to Blakros Museum, friends. There
isn’t much time!”

See attached for Jin's chronicle.

May 4th, 2013, 06:29
And attached again...

May 4th, 2013, 08:00
Thanks :-)

If you are buying or selling anything make sure you post the list of items here to this thread before the game. Just makes my life a lot easier doing the chronicle sheets afterwards.

May 4th, 2013, 09:08
I want to buy 3 healing potions, as we have discussed via mail before

May 4th, 2013, 13:10
If there is still room for one more, I'd love to join this game. Let me know and I'll create a char this afternoon. No chronicle sheet as it will be my first PFS scenario.

May 4th, 2013, 13:21
Yeah there is still room. Better apply on the calendar for formalities sake:
I'll need you character at least an hour before the game starts.
See you there :-)

May 4th, 2013, 13:45
Ok, great. I have applied through the calendar. Will get you a char .xml as soon as I put it together this afternoon.

May 4th, 2013, 13:47
Great :-) A bard will be a nice addition.

May 4th, 2013, 15:22
If your're in Europe and use Spotify this is the soundtrack for tonight's game:


May 4th, 2013, 17:10
Character sheet attached. Hopefully all ok.

May 4th, 2013, 17:33
Looks ok to me

If anyone doesn't have a portrait ready you need a 63x63 pixel png and put it in your portraits folder which is probably here: C:\Documents and Settings\<YOUR_USER_NAME>\Application Data\Fantasy Grounds II\portraits

Or you can send me a picture of your character and I'll sort it out.

May 4th, 2013, 18:02
The server is running so you can check your connection and character:

Server Alias: cold jump smelly ogre

I've also created a 'The Penumbral Accords' accords sub-channel in 'Pathfinder Society (PFS)' in teamspeak.

Teamspeak3 server: fgts.servegame.com

I'll be there later on..

May 5th, 2013, 13:16
I really enjoyed the evening yesterday.
Thanks for hosting the game

May 5th, 2013, 20:33
Glad you enjoyed it I thought it went really well, was lots of fun, didn't have any technical problems and finished on time :-)

Here is everyone's draft chronicle sheets, please check them over and I will then sign them once you have confirmed everything is ok.

May 5th, 2013, 20:34
Here's Wulf's sheet, the forum would only let me upload 5 files at a time..

May 6th, 2013, 00:04
Mine looks good to me :)

May 6th, 2013, 00:13
Thanks Rob for a fun evening. Chronicle sheet looks good to me.

May 6th, 2013, 12:33
Here's Matthias and Tremlin's signed chronicle sheets. I forgot about Tremlin's day job roll before so put that in. Not entirely sure where that goes on these old chronicle sheets so just put it in items sold. You only earn't 1gp from your performances though, better practice ;-)

Everyone else, if I don't hear from you by the weekend I'll just assume your sheet is fine and sign it.

Sounds like you got it all working OK and had a great time. :)
