Next Week

We are gaming on 12/23/14. We still have the last encounter of #3-03 - The Ghenett Manor Gauntlet to complete. I could plan to run some more of the Silverhex Chronicles quests to fill in the rest of the session time.  The only wrinkle is that it looks like Alan will not be able to attend next week. He has suggested that we plan to play something else next week and finish up the scenario and play quests on 12/30/14. (yes we are planning to game that day too).

If folks agree to playing something else, I can plan to run a low-tier PFS adventure instead next week. Randy has expressed an interest in working on expanding his stable of characters. He only has two with any XP; Ser Roland (7th) and Vedross (3rd).

We have the following scenarios that no one has played:

5-22 - Scars of the Third Crusade (1-5)
6-01 - Trial by Machine (1-5)
6-05 - Slave Ships of Absalom (1-5)
We also have a few that either Bruce or I would need to use a GM Star replay and the other run:
2-01 - Before the Dawn - Part I: The Bloodcove Disguise (1-7)
2-02 - Before the Dawn - Part II: Rescue at Azlant Ridge (1-7)
5-01 - The Glass River Rescue (1-5)
6-06 - Hall of the Flesh Eaters (1-5)
3-08 - Among the Gods (3-7)
5-02 - The Wardstone Patrol (3-7)
6-02 - The Silver Mount Collection (3-7)
Any preferences? I would like to know what I should be prepared to run.

Wardens of the Reborn Forge Sanctioned for Seeker Play

The module Wardens of the Reborn Forge has been sanctioned for Seeker play. If you take a 12th level PFS character through the whole adventure you will receive 4 chronicles sheets. This will grant you a potential of 12 XP, 18 PP and a tone of gold and available items and boons.

This is an alternative cap-stone adventure like Eyes of the Ten (which only grants 5 XP).

This is a module and does not necessarily have the PFS flavor. The whole module is sanctioned. Each part has its own chronicle sheet. The 4th sheet is only available if you complete the whole adventure with an appropriately leveled PFS character. i.e. 12th level for part 1, 13th level for part 2 and 14th level for part 3.

Current plans for December

I have decided to wait on running a module for a bit so that I can earn back replay for my GM Stars.

This Tuesday I will run #2-25 - You Only Die Twice. I will plan to run #5-23 - Cairn of Shadows the following week. Both are tier 5-9.I expect we will be playing the higher sub-tier but that is up to the group.

It would be nice if Dave can plan to run #3-03 - The Ghenett Manor Gauntlet (5-9) and/or Bruce to run #4-04 - King of the Storval Stairs (7-11) in the following weeks. That should take us through December and likely into January.

I should be available the Tuesdays leading up to Christmas. I am likely not available on 12/30/14 but it is a bit early to tell.

I plan to run the three tier 7-11 "of the Fiend" scenarios starting in January. These are:

#22 - Fingerprints of the Fiend
#2-10 - Fury of the Fiend
#5-17 - Fate of the Fiend
