Tier 1-4, the subtier will depend on the players. Make sure to decide on a reasonable subtier.

To quote the only post in the GM thread: "Well THIS is an interesting one."

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

Make sure you use the new FG alias when connecting.

No game (run by me) next weekend.

About the scenario:

A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–4 (subtiers 1–2 and 3–4).

Over two years ago, the Starfinder Society recovered the reports of a crashed starship that pointed them to several sites of interest. The world of Wealdriad is one such location, far from the Pact Worlds in the depths of the Vast. The Society has recently determined the planet is about to undergo a once-in-a-lifetime natural phenomena. The PCs travel to Wealdriad to catalogue the experience, but soon find that other forces have come to monitor the event and that not all of those witnesses are peaceful.

Scenario tags: Vehicle

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=3728), 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 announcements 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.

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.

Coming along with Vargouzal my vesk mechanic if playing upper tier. Probably Edward-209 if playing lower tier.

I'm in as well. I'll decide which character to play later (Especially depending on subtier).

Alright, with that 2 spots still open.

Let me know if you need the server up to build your character.

If you are new, make sure to send me the information from your last chronicle sheet (a scan of the sheet is usually the easiest way).

I'm late to the party, but I would like to join if there are still spots open. It's been a while since I played last. I just checked, and Jason is out of the subtier, so I will need to create a new -702 character. Can you make the server available?

The server is up (FG alias in game calendar) but I likely won't be around.

Right now, it seems like my choice of level will determine the subtier. Do people want higher or lower subtier?

stephan_
January 18th, 2020, 16:08
Correct, it seems like we currently have one each of each level (1, 2, 3 and 4) so without your character the APL is 2.5.

I can say combat in this one is not the most challenging aspect. That being said, a level 1 in a subtier 3-4 is always at some risk and there is a noticeable impact on all DCs depending on which subtier you'll play in.

In that case, I will probably bring a 1st level Solarian. Always a good idea to keep the low-level characters safe and to keep the skill challenges easy (unless someone vehemently wants high tier, then I'll look for a different character).

Ugh - sorry everyone. I confused the day. I didn't look closely at the UTC time and thought it was the Sunday/6AM US time (instead of today). I will make sure I don't do that again. Hope it was a fun game.

As 2-13 can currently be reported on the OSP site but not on the Paizo OP page itself, it might still take a bit of time to show up on the Paizo OP page.

Any preferences between 1. SAT 1st 6.30 PM UTC and SUN 2nd 1.30 PM UTC as well as 2. #1-39 The Herald's War (7-10) and #2-16: A Scoured Home (5-8)?

(Edit: I have a slight preference for 1-39 as 2-16 is only scheduled to be released on the 29th if things go well but either works for me.)

SAT 1st 6.30 PM UTC and #2-16: A Scoured Home (5-8) would be my preference!

Unfortunately I do not have a character over 4 yet.

Scoured Home 5-6 - I guess Saturday.

I would prefer "A Scoured Home". I already played "The Herald's War" and I believe I currently have no replay available for it.
Both days work for me, so no preference there.
