View Full Version : SFS #1-22: The Protectorate Petition Sun March 10 @ 3 PM GMT

March 5th, 2019, 11:32
Tier 1-4, subtier will depend on the players. I do recommend a somewhat balanced party though.

Please schedule around 4 1/2 hours for the game.

About the scenario:

A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1-4.

The alien copaxis have long inhabited their world in Near Space but only recently petitioned the Pact Wolds for protectorate status. Sent as part of a delegation to review the petition's virtues and validity, the PCs must explore the ancient copaxi ruins and learn about this applicant species' history. Will the PCs decide to vouch for the copaxis [...]?

Some boilerplate clarifications:

Please apply on the FG forums on both the game calendar as well as in the game thread (if multiple household members are playing, one person per household is sufficient). First, it's easier to tell how many spots are already filled that way. Second, the other players (as well as the GM) know what level and class to expect from your character (if you don't know yet, simply state TBD). Third, you'll get notified about any updates if you post in the game thread (at least about the first one). Fourth, it allows the GM to determine who applied first should it become relevant. Some exceptions might apply.

Also, please be sure to check the thread for new messages occasionally. You don't have to check each and every day or every few hours but please make sure to reply to any posts that do concern you in time. Should you remain unresponsive, I'll give the spot to a player that applied after you (as I won't know whether you are still interested in participating or not). Exceptions might apply, e.g. if you state beforehand that you won't be able to respond due to traveling.

If you apply but don't show up or drop out during the game without notice, in future games I might also give preference to other players who have a better track record of showing up. I am aware though that life and technical problems can always happen, so don't worry if you have a valid reason though.

These rules are not in place to prevent players from playing but in fact to enable players willing to play to actually do so. It's frustrating if I have to turn down players if it turns out they would in fact have been able to play.

Technical details:

We will use Fantasy Grounds (I have an Ultimate license) and Teamspeak.

Steps before the game:

Make sure to both apply here as well as in the game calendar (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/calendar/index.xcp?id=3409), stating which character you'd like to play.

If you apply, make sure you send me your previous chronicle sheet of the character you want to apply this chronicle to (if you already have any chronicle sheet), either here or on Discord (Fantasy Grounds channel).

If you haven't already, also make sure to either build the character on FG yourself (and send it to me) or log in early enough so you can do so on game day.

Make sure you have updated Fantasy Grounds.

FG alias and Teamspeak server can be found under GM annnouncements in the game calendar.

Other notes:

Also make sure to track your purchases on the Inventory Tracking Sheet.

Be sure to apply on time (if you can make it) as the last games were rather full.

In your own interest, make sure the party is somewhat balanced level-wise.

Newcomers to SF, SFS and/or FG are welcome.

Signed up with Prentis (Drone Mechanic 2). Hopefully ConEd will be more cooperative this week.

FYI there is a game calendar link in the Starfinder Game Announcement thread but not in this one.

I also would like to join. Ireloss (Solarian1/Soldier1)

March 5th, 2019, 14:02
I'm in, too. I will decide on the character I'll play later, when I have a better overview of which subtier it's going to be.

March 5th, 2019, 16:05
Alright, look like we have legal table, three spots still open.

@Chris: Thanks, should be fixed now.

@SchroedingersCat: Do you need a quick introduction to FG before the game and/or need to have the server up to build your character?

March 5th, 2019, 17:56
An introduction to FG would be nice.
Malkavian_Andi already offered to build my Character in Fg for me.
I have joined the Discord server and would send you my character and chronicle sheets.

March 5th, 2019, 19:05
As promised, here's SchroedingersCat's xml. My own will come later, when I have decided (haven't found the time to look through my characters yet.

March 5th, 2019, 19:16
I would like to join also if there is still a spot available. I will look to create a character and provide more details.

March 5th, 2019, 19:23
double-post, sorry

March 5th, 2019, 19:25
I'm thinking a Vesk soldier might be useful, but I'm not fussy.

March 5th, 2019, 19:34
@Malkavian_Andi Thanks a lot!

March 5th, 2019, 19:55
@dmkevin: Sure, welcome. Usually SF is relatively forgiving regarding party composition. This specific scenario is not articularly combat heavy. But entirely up to you. You can also freely rebuild until you play your first game as a level 2.

I can usually have the server up GMT evenings if you want to build your character.

4 spots filled, 2 still open.

@SchroedingersCat: I'm in the process of importing your character. Just tell me a little bit in advance if you want to get a quick pointer to FG.

I've decided to play my Skittermander again, even though he's 3rd level, but I'm ok with getting OoSt credits. He's a supporter anyway, so doesn't need that much of the expensive equipment.

Oh, and please delete the version that's already on your server. I have updated him.

March 6th, 2019, 10:19
Alright, thanks.

With one person (Jack) stating they'll post here after they get home, all six spots would currently be filled.

March 6th, 2019, 16:43
Lotta soldiers around, hahah
I'm in!

March 6th, 2019, 17:07
The server is currently up for those who want to build/review their characters.

March 6th, 2019, 22:31
26592Hopefully, this will not need any editing, I believe i did it right.

March 7th, 2019, 17:07
Looks good at a first glance.

You'll manually have to add the Armor Savant and Rapid Response benefits though.

March 8th, 2019, 12:28
Subtier still unclear at this point.

Venture Captain Arvin looks at the assembled soldier-heavy-group before him. "Expecting trouble?" He shrugs. "Well, you can never be too careful. Just be aware you're on a diplomatic mission."

March: As mentioned before (#1-22, #1-33, #1-03, #1-21 if there are no unforeseen circumstances)

March 9th, 2019, 17:54

March 10th, 2019, 14:59
The server is up.

March 10th, 2019, 20:10
stephan_ ,

Thanks for all your work today in GM'ing!!!

March 10th, 2019, 22:01
No problem, I hope everyone had fun. It was less combat focused than usual but I think still interesting.

Chronicle drafts sent.

June 11th, 2019, 08:16
I would like to join also if there is still a spot available. I will look to create a character and provide more details.

Hi. Unfortunately, this particular game is long finished. Starfinder Society consists of single scenarios that are to be played as one-shot games. You are still welcome to create a character and join any games that will be offered in the future. Just keep an eye on the game announcement thread (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?40717-***-Starfinder-Game-Announcement-thread-***-Subscribe-to-get-email-updates-GM-posts). You can also subscribe to that thread to get an email whenever someone posts a new game.
