April PFS at October Country

ImageFresh off the heels of our little 1st anniversary celebration last night (well, OK, there were cupcakes), here’s what’s in store for April.

On April 4th, Rich McKean will continue the Destiny of the Sands trilogy with #05-15 Destiny of the Sands Part 2, “Race to Seeker’s Folly,” a Tier 1-5 scenario:

The Pathfinder Society has discovered the location of a powerful Osirian artifact secreted beneath the sands, but they are not the only ones who seek its power. The Pathfinders must endure the scalding Osirian desert, brave its inhabitants, and watch for hidden dangers if they are to survive. Can the PCs reach the ruins before their rivals claim the prize? “Race to Seeker’s Folly” is the second scenario in the three-part Destiny of the Sands campaign arc. It follows Pathfinder Society Scenario #5–12: Destiny of the Sands—Part 1: “A Bitter Bargain” and is followed by Pathfinder Society Scenario #5–16: Destiny of the Sands—Part 3: “Sanctum of the Sages.” All three chapters are intended to be played in order. Content in “Race to Seeker’s Folly” also contributes directly to the ongoing storyline of the Osirion faction.

And on April 18th, get ready for the zombie apocalypse! I will be running a table of #01-07 Among the Living, a Tier 1-7 scenario:

Famed Pathfinder Bodriggan Wuthers disappeared from his dig site beneath the House of the Immortal Son in Taldor’s gilded capital of Oppara. Once a grand temple to Aroden, the Immortal Son is now Oppara’s most opulent theater. Sent to locate Wuthers, the Pathfinders must attend an opera with members of the Oppara elite in order to gain access to the secretive theater’s dig site. When a cult crashes the performance and the nobility change into hideous walking dead, the Pathfinders are forced to choose between finding Wuthers or saving themselves.

If there’s demand for more space on a given night, we will find a GM to run a second table. As always, games start at 7 PM and you can sign up on Warhorn. Hope to see you there!

Celebrating One Year at October Country

PZO1117-FireworksAs I mentioned in my last post, this Friday marks the 1st anniversary of Pathfinder Society play at October Country. We have two scenarios running:

  • #4-09 The Blakros Matrimony (sharpen your social skills, people!) at either the 3-4 or 6-7 subtier, depending on party composition
  • #5-15 Destiny of the Sands – Part 2: Race to Seeker’s Folly (focusing particularly on the Osirion faction) at the 1-2 subtier

There is room in both of these games for more players. Plus, celebratory cupcakes! Plus, more surprises! We hope to see you there tomorrow.

March PFS and Our First Anniversary!!

PZO9406-FightAlthough it may not feel like it, March (and the start of Spring) are just around the corner, and we are running four scenarios, two on March 7th and two on March 21st.

On March 7th, Jason Schaff will be GMing #3-16 “The Midnight Mauler” (Tier 3-7):

The Decemvirate sends members of the Pathfinder Society to the former crown jewel of Ustalav’s royal courts, the decaying city of Ardis. Tasked by the Society to look into the fate of Absalom’s former Master of Blades, Vonran Vilk, what they find will lead to exploration, diplomacy, murder, haunted pasts, and tragic love. Can the PCs stop the rampage of the Midnight Mauler before he kills again? “The Midnight Mauler” was originally an exclusive adventure, run only by 4-star Pathfinder Society GMs, Venture-Captain and Venture-Lieutenant campaign volunteers, and Paizo staff for its first year, but has been revised and updated for public release

And Rich McKean starts us off on the new Season Five three-part adventure with #5-12 “Destiny of the Sands – Part 1: A Bitter Bargain” (Tier 1-5):

Amenopheus has learned that the legacy of the Jeweled Sages lies near the Osirian trade city of Eto, and the Pathfinder Society has pledged its support in the Sapphire Sage’s investigation of his ancient order; however the lead dried up—that was until a familiar information broker contacted Amenopheus offering an exchange of services. To assist an ally and unlock the secrets of Osirion’s past, the Society must deal with a deadly antagonist once more by sending the PCs to fulfill the bargain and collect its due. The only question is what price their foe will demand. “A Bitter Bargain” is the first scenario in the three-part Destiny of the Sands campaign arc. It is followed by Pathfinder Society Scenario #5–15: Destiny of the Sands—Part 2: “Race to Seeker’s Folly” and Pathfinder Society Scenario #5–16: Destiny of the Sands—Part 3: “Sanctum of the Sages.” All three chapters are intended to be played in order. Content in “A Bitter Bargain” also contributes directly to the ongoing storylines of the Osirion, Qadira, and Sczarni factions.

On March 21st, I will be running another Blakros family scenario, #4-09 “The Blakros Matrimony” (Tier 3-7):

The eldest daughter of the prominent Blakros family is set to wed an influential Hellknight, and the Pathfinder Society is invited to the festivities. Dressed for a wedding befitting royalty, a team of Pathfinders attend the ceremony on behalf of the Decemvirate, but will their presence ultimately strengthen the Society’s relationship with the influential Blakroses, or will events at the wedding bring the already tenuous alliance to a breaking point?

Finally, Rich will continue the Destiny of the Sands trilogy with #5-15 “Destiny of the Sands – Part 2: Race to Seeker’s Folly” (Tier 1-5):

The Pathfinder Society has discovered the location of a powerful Osirian artifact secreted beneath the sands, but they are not the only ones who seek its power. The Pathfinders must endure the scalding Osirian desert, brave its inhabitants, and watch for hidden dangers if they are to survive. Can the PCs reach the ruins before their rivals claim the prize? “Race to Seeker’s Folly” is the second scenario in the three-part Destiny of the Sands campaign arc. It follows Pathfinder Society Scenario #5–12: Destiny of the Sands—Part 1: “A Bitter Bargain” and is followed by Pathfinder Society Scenario #5–16: Destiny of the Sands—Part 3: “Sanctum of the Sages.” All three chapters are intended to be played in order. Content in “Race to Seeker’s Folly” also contributes directly to the ongoing storyline of the Osirion faction.

And March 15th marks the one-year anniversary of Pathfinder Society play at October Country. During the first year, we have run 38 tables with 32 different scenarios or modules run by 7 different GMs. Pretty awesome! Thanks to all the GMs (Jason, Rich, Bob, Marguerite, Eric, and Patrick) , players, and October Country staff (i.e., John Ezell) for a successful first year!

So, how should we celebrate? :)

Pathfinder Society in February at October Country

ImageWe’ve got two tables running on Friday, February 6th (7 PM, as always). First, Eric Lasko will be GMing #01-55 The Internal Vault at the low subtier (1-2)

A decade ago, the Decklands family, a house of Chelish nobles, were exiled from Absalom for treason. Their fate made for an interesting story and when a Pathfinder agent in Cheliax studying the family’s long history and exile from the City at the Center of the World ends up murdered, the Society sends you to the recently discovered Deckland Vaults in Absalom to see what connection their old home might have to your murdered colleague.

GM Rich McKean, meanwhile, will be running a table of #5-07 Port Godless:

Few are as adept at fighting demons as the Riftwardens, an organization of spellcasters dedicated to protecting the boundaries between the planes. Many are already committed to the Fifth Crusade in Mendev and are unable to assist the Pathfinders directly in the society’s upcoming expedition into the Worldwound, but if the Pathfinders assist the Riftwardens elsewhere, perhaps a small number of the mages might be free to return the favor. Unfortunately, this means entering the godless nation Rahadoum, where several Riftwardens have recently disappeared. Content in “Port Godless” also contributes directly to the ongoing storylines of the Cheliax, Osirion, and Qadira factions.

There is still plenty of room at both tables, so come on by. There’s an outside chance we may not have enough folks for two tables, so bring all of your characters so you’ll be sure to have something at the right level to play (or we’ll just hook you up with a pre-gen).

Two weeks later, on February 21st, I’m running #1-35 “The Voice in the Void”

Mystery strikes again at the problem-plagued Blackros Museum in Absalom and its curator, Nigel Aldain, needs your help. When a famed Osirian tomb raider returns to Absalom and disappears in the museum’s basement, Aldain fears the worst. When strange sounds echo from below and several of the curator’s night watchmen go missing, he panics and begs the Society to investigate the mystery and save his museum from the darkness that infests it.

I’ll be running this at whatever subtier is appropriate for the group who shows up. We can also add a 2nd table of the same scenario if there is enough interest.

As always, sign up for October Country PFS events at our region’s Warhorn page. This helps us gauge how many folks will be showing up. But you know that because you’re all amazingly good at using the system (not true of all PFS communities, from what I’ve heard!).
