AFO Questions

Do we pick a flaw?

How much Style do we start with?

My character is a priest, not a Musketeer.  Can my Rank be a level 0 in the Church?  Or do all characters have to be Musketeers?

Forward planning

As I posted yesterday, I plan to finish running Storming the Diamond Gate next week. The week after that I would like to start The Midnight Mirror. This should take us through to near the end of October.

If you would like to take a break from PFS for a while, we need to get our AFO characters ready so we can play. Once we start the first module, Force Majeure, I figure it will be about 3 or 4 weeks of material. If we plan to start 11/6/12, can I get everyone's commitment to getting a character together? That should take us through November.

As far as PFS is concerned, we still have a bunch of material available. We need to play a couple more tier 3-7 or 5-9 scenarios before everyone has a character that will qualify to play the tier 7-11 material. Once we hit that point, I plan to run Portal of the Sacred Rune.

Besides that, here is a list of lower and mid-tier scenarios and modules that we have access to play:

Tier 1-5

Shades of Ice - Part I: Written in Blood
Shades of Ice - Part II: Exiles of Winter
Shades of Ice - Part III: Keep of the Huskarl King
Tide of Twilight
The Goblinblood Dead
Rise of the Goblin Guild (Bruce needs to run)

Tier 3-7

The Midnight Mauler
The Sanos Abduction

Tier 5-9

Our Lady of Silver
Sniper in the Deep
The Rebel's Ransom
The Heresy of Man - Part I: The First Heresy
The Heresy of Man - Part II: Where the Dark Things Sleep
The Heresy of Man - Part III: Beneath Forgotten Sands
You Only Die Twice
The Ghenett Manor Gauntlet
The Immortal Conundrum
The Haunting of Hinojai (Dave can run if Steve is not there)
The Golden Serpent (Dave can run if Steve is not there)
The Golemworks Incident
The Green Market

Tier 4-6

Dawn of the Scarlet Sun (1 XP – Bruce plans to run)

Tier 6-8

Realm of the Fellnight Queen

This list may change as some of us have been playing PFS at conventions and other venues making it more difficult to play/run certain scenarios on Tuesdays.

Player input on what types of games and/or characters that you would like to play would be appreciated.

Games in October

I expect to finish Storming the Diamond Gate next Tuesday. We only got through the first encounter last week. There are enough encounters left for those that missed last week to still earn full credit.

After that, while I would still like folks to work on their AFO characters so that we can finally play, I expect that I will try to run another module, The Midnight Mirror, for PFS credit. This module is playable by characters 3-5. I believe that everyone has at least one character that they can play.

I expect the module to take 3 or 4 weeks to play given our abilities to start on time and to get side tracked. That should take us through October or at least pretty close.

Goblins now PFS Legal*

To quote the updated Additional Resources, "To create a goblin character, you must have a Chronicle sheet that opens the race as a legal option at character creation."

This means that goblins will be joining PFS but they are not an always available race. Not sure where you can get such a chronicle sheet but I expect that they will be available at conventions and game days.

New Printer

I can order a new printer through work if we want.

Here is what I found while poking around:

HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One Printer - J611g - $69.99 - Print, copy, scan. Wireless. Uses the same 61 cartrages as the old printer. I can get free shipping.
  HP Deskjet 3000 Printer - J310a - $69.99 - Print. Wireless. Uses the same 61 cartrages as the old printer. I can get free shipping.

I also found the same printer as we had before, HP Deskjet 1000 Printer - J110a, for $29.99 but the shipping is not free.
  We can also poke around locally. We just need to decide on how much we want to spend.

New Adventure for Leagues of Adventure Released

A new adventure for Leagues of Adventure, Dreaming Spires, was released today. It is the first part of a multi-part set of adventures. I would like to run this in the near future so start thinking about your character concepts. Think Victorian Era steampunk.

A copy of the latest Leagues of Adventure character creation cheatsheets is located on my website at:

I am also ready to run All For One. The first adventure is Force Majeure.  


At this point, you all still need characters. I have printed several pre-made character if you do not have the time or desire to create your own.

A copy of the latest All For One character creation cheatsheets is located on my website at: This file also has a listing of sample Lackeys and the source where they are located. I have copies of all the books and source material.

Five Talons of the Jade Dragon PDF Released

The HEX adventure, Five Talons of the Jade Dragon, has been released as a PDF. This is the last adventure which the group performed playtesting. As promised, your names appear in the credits. Check it out below:

This adventure will also be appearing in the Perils of the Surface World hardcover that will be published later this year.

Next Tuesday

I will finish up the Feast of Ravenmoor next week. I expect that we need another hour to conclude the adventure and do paperwork.

I will also have Storming the Diamond Gate prepared to run. It is a PFS scenario for characters 3-7. Depending on what tier you plan to play, I believe that everyone has at least 2 characters that will qualify for play. (I was expecting to run this at the 6-7 sub-tier as I would like to get everyone to a point where we can play some tier 7-11 adventures but if you want to play lower sub-tier we can make that work too.)

Kelly, Kara and Dave all have a character that is 1 XP from 7th (Dave also has one at 9th). Bruce has one that is 2 XP away (but he has another already at 8th) and Corey has one that is 3 XP away.

If we play the higer sub-tier I think the party would be:

Elise - Witch (6) - Bruce
Fantasticleez - Cavalier (6) - Dave
Karorgrarbag - Sorcerer (5) - Steve
Simone Dickenson - Bard (6) - Kara
Phi-Torr - Fighter (6) - Corey
Zaldon - Fighter (5) or Al goBoom - Alchemist (7) - David
Frabbl - Druid (5)/Bard (1) - Kelly

D&D Documentary Kickstarter

Looks like some folks are trying to film a history of D&D Documentary. It is worth a look.

Perils of the Surface World Kickstarter

There is only a few more days for the Perils of the Surface World Kickstarter. If anyone is interested, they have opened up dice and style chips to the kickstarter for any pledges of $40 or more. They are also offering free PDFs for any hard copy book pledge.

I believe that both Corey and myself have made pledges that qualify. If anyone is interested in just Ubiquity dice or Surface World style chips, we can add $6 for dice and $25 for chips per set to our pledges. If you are interested, I would like to know by Tuesday night.

Next Tuesday - Best of both worlds

I have a Pathfinder module, Feast of Ravenmoor, that I can start next week. It is meant for 3rd level characters but it can be played with PFS characters 2nd-4th. I can run that for PFS credit for a few weeks until everyone gets their All For One characters sorted out.

By Tuesday, I think that everyone should have at least one character that will qualify to play and it should be a fair party mix. You would get the module/adventure feel with PFS credit.
