Next Few Weeks

Tomorrow I will be running scenario #5-21 - The Merchant's Wake. Bruce is planning to play a new level 1 guy so I expect that we will be playing the low sub-tier (1-2). That means that characters from 1st to 3rd are the best fit.

After that I was considering running a module. I have a couple tier 7-9 adventures which I can run.
The first is Cult of the Ebon Destroyers. The summary from the back cover reads:
A malignant cult has taken root in the mystical and magical realm of Jalmeray. Known and feared throughout distant Vudra, the cult of Dhalavei has expertly destroyed organizations and societies from within for millennia. Now a new sect of the sinister Cult of the Ebon Destroyers has its sights set on Thakur Kharswan of Jalmeray, and the magistrates and bureaucrats behind the throne must hunt down and eliminate the cult before the unthinkable happens. If only there were someone they could trust to behead Dhalavei's cult before the assassins do the same to their beloved ruler…
The second is No Response from Deepmar. The summary from the back cover reads:

A hundred miles off the Chelish coast lies the remote island of Deepmar, where the House of Thrune sends prisoners to work in crystal mines, wresting valuable spell components from the depths of the earth. A month ago, all contact with the penal colony ceased, and now someone must discover what mysterious fate has befallen the prisoners and guards of this isolated mining operation. The abandoned colony shows no signs of struggle yet something is clearly not right: Herds of animals lie mutilated in the surrounding fields. The savage beasts of the island have run amok inside the compound. And the silent, gaping mines—each named for a different layer of Hell—lead to new threats beyond anyone's imagining. As the PCs explore the island in search of the missing miners and their jailers, what they discover may unhinge their very minds. If left unchecked, the new masters of Deepmar could bring about a new era of madness for all of Cheliax—and beyond.
Does the group have a preference as to which one to play?

Based upon available characters, it looks like Kelly would play his paladin (7). Bruce has his choice of his samurai (7), magus (8) or gunslinger (7). Dave has his cavalier (8) or oracle (8). David has his fighter/ranger/barbarian (9), his alchemist (9) or his oracle (7). Alan has his cleric (9).

Randy's cavalier is still 6th. We will need to play a few more tier 5-9 or 3-7 scenarios to get him to 7th.

Newest Hero Lab Update has Some Occult Adventures Character Classes

I was checking Hero Lab for updates before going to U-Con tomorrow. To my surprise and pleasure, it appears that the Occult Adventures playtest character classes are now available. To my disappointment, only some of the characters are available and only one of the ones I was considering playing.

The classes that made it are: Medium, Mesmerist, Psychic and Spiritualist.

Maybe they will do another update soon.

Looking for a volunteer

I would like to get a PFS character from the Occult Adventures playtest. In order to do that, I need to play it at least once between now and 11/25/14.

Would anyone be willing to run one of the following scenarios in the next few weeks?

5-21 The Merchant's Wake

5-22 Scars of the Third Crusade

6-01 Trial by Machine

6-05 Slave Ships of Absalom

If everyone wants to play one (or two), I can arrange to run another low tier scenario before the deadline. I can run one of the one above or maybe the first level of The Emerald Spire.
