View Full Version : SFS #1-33: Data Breach Sun March 17 @ 3 PM GMT

March 11th, 2019, 19:40
Tier 3-6, subtier will depend on the players. I do recommend a somewhat balanced party though. Also bear the name and description of the scenario in mind when discussing party composition. Due to this being a brand new scenario (with little GM discussion so far) it's difficult to tell how tough combat will be, so I can only give the recommendation to not underestimate the combat involved.

[The storyline continues from #1-07 and #1-14, though it is not necessary to have played them.]

Please schedule around 4 1/2 hours for the game but again, it's tough to tell due to it being new.

About the scenario:

A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 3-6.

Following up on previous intelligence about a broad conspiracy against the Society, the PCs undertake a daring raid against a fortified complex near a city within the Pact Worlds. With only a limited amount of time to breach the site and retrieve valuable data before an automated system scrubs the files, the PCs need to use all their skills in order to complete this mission in a race against the clock.

Content in Data Breach also contributes to the ongoing goals of the Dataphiles faction.

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=3420), 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.

Cao Ren, support Guard Soldier (5) tank, is in!

Now, to make an alarm on my phone so I don't forget again XD

Applied with Ethan Hunt (Operative 20). In the event he is not considered SFS legal, I will just go with Wex (Technomancer 6).

This post will self destruct in five seconds...

Of course Ethan Hunt is welcome here. Unfortunately, it seems like he is out of tier though...

March 12th, 2019, 13:23
Alright, it looks like we have a legal table.

I had a more detailed look at the scenario. The difficulty of the fights is "fluid" in some way, so I would suggest expecting the worst and be glad if it turns out to be easier than expected. For the same reason, it's difficult to tell the length of this particular session. I think there is a good chance it will take less than four hours but it depends on a few specific circumstances. In general, just be aware it's very dissimilar from the previous one.

In case we only have three players, you'll have to decide on a pregen.

As we can't start with only 2 players also please remember to be on time.

March 16th, 2019, 01:36
If you still need a player I will play a Pregen

March 16th, 2019, 10:09
Sure, a real player is always better than the party having to control an additional pregen, glad to have you.

The choice is up to the party (*cough* beware the title and description of the scenario though *cough*).

Also a heads-up: I should be able to run SFS the next two weeks, whether there is a game on April 6th/7th is still unclear though.

I've played the Operative Pregen so far I would not mind to play him again. The Mechanic would also work for me

March 16th, 2019, 11:22
Playing this scenario will not block #1-07 and #1-14 for me since I have not played them yet?

March 16th, 2019, 11:50
Both of them should work. Level 4 pregens are already built on FG (though not everything might be automated).

No, it will not block them. There are some spoilers for #1-14 (basically how it ends, not how it happened). If you really want to avoid them, you can just exit the channel for 3-5 minutes.

Sounds good

The server is up.

Chronicle drafts sent.
