Tier 1-4, subtier will depend on the players.

Please schedule around 4 1/2 hours for the game, just to be on the safe side.

This scenario features vehicle combat.

Back to the regular schedule, so please note that we'll use Teamspeak again.

About the scenario:

A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1-4.

Dispatched by the Wayfinders' faction leader to a Near Space world, the PCs have orders to assist a local Starfinder research outpost. The outpost's head researcher sends the PCs on a mission to explore a strange calcified region, which soon reveals that there's more happening on this world than first appears.

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=3467), 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 it is your first SFS game, I'll at least need your Paizo Organized Play # and your faction.

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.

I am still trying to get a handle on the GMT thing. I am -6 to GTM (MST) so would that be at 7pm mst or 8 am ?

7 AM (13-6=7; GMT +- offset), see here (https://www.worldtimebuddy.com/?qm=1&lid=0,7&h=0&date=2019-5-5&sln=13-17.5).

Alternatively, if you set up your timezone on your profile (and are logged in), the game calendar (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/calendar/index.xcp?id=3467) should display the correct time on the right.

Keep on mind that GMT is static, most timezones are not, so your GMT offset might be different, depending on whether daylight saving time is in effect or not.

Reminder about the game in about 4 hours.

Prentis (+9) and HuMN (+7) seem to be more trustworthy in regards to piloting vehicles by the way.

Two other short notes: You can always try to exit a vehicle to circumvent vehicle combat.
