A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 3-7 (subtier 3-4 or 6-7).

Click here for more details of playing Pathfinder Society at FG-CON 8!

When the Pathfinder Society claimed the Hao Jin Tapestry in Tian Xia, it seemed as though the Aspis Consortium’s influence there had ended. An anonymous informant recently identified an Aspis resurgence in Goka’s Deepmarket, and Venture-Captain Amara Li hopes that a small, well-trained team can ferret out the villains and prevent any greater atrocities. Can the PCs traverse the Deepmarket’s treacherous politics and tunnels and neutralize the Consortium’s local ringleader?

Content in The Deepmarket Deception also contributes directly to the ongoing storyline of the retired Lantern Lodge faction.Content in this scenario also ties into a special metaplot element from Pathfinder Society Special #6–98: “Serpents Rise”. Players who have completed that special event are encouraged to bring its Chronicle Sheet when playing this adventure.

    Any preferences on subtier? I have 3rd levels and a 6th that I can bring to either.
    3rd level Tengu Zen Archer (assuming he survives HG’s game in the near future) and a 3rd level Ifrit Flamedancer (bard).
    Or a 6th level Archaeologist with a reach weapon and a song in his heart. :p

    We still have a few weeks, but do we want to discuss character options so we can get a preliminary idea as to which subtier we’re looking at?

    Just as a note this is a “Serpents Rise” scenario. If anyone has a boon from playing Serpents Rise please mention it to me prior to start as it makes a small change in the scenario.

    I’m good for either sub-tier. No “Serpents Rise” credit here.

    On second thought, my preference would be the 3-4 so I can get some time in with my Ifrit flamedancer, but I can go 6-7 if the rest of the group leans that way.

    What are folks planning on bringing to this party? I have several options in this range.
    Garbunkle – Male Gnome – Two Weapon Fighter/7.0
    Prindlemire – Male Gnome – Sorcerer/6.0
    Inquisitor Stick – Male Tengu – Inquisitor/6.0
    Grum the Thug – Male Half-orc – Rogue (Thug)/5.0
    Spirit Walker – Male Gnome – Spirit Totem Barbarian/4.1
    Daydrocandri – Male Gnome – Oracle/3.1
    Brom of the Stone – Male Dwarf – Druid (Menhir Savant)/3.0.5
    Thumpinollo – Male Gnome – Sacred Shield Paladin/3.0
    Thoom – Male Oread – Monk of the Sacred Mountain/3.0
    I don’t care too much which one I bring.. they are all pretty cool.

    It would be nice to see Thoom again. He was such the conversationalist from what I remember….although a bit repetitive. :p

    Anyone else want to chime in with character options?
    If we go for the 3-4 subtier, we have an Oread Monk and an Ifrit Bard so far.
    Xazil, do you want to fire off a group email in case there are some who aren’t tracking the conversation here?

    I prefer 6-7 as I don’t get much games on level 6.

  10. Blackfoot
    April 4, 2016 at 05:28

    It doesn’t much matter to me which tier we go.
    I have more dudes for the lower tier, but I still have plenty of options for the upper.

  11. cmdisc
    April 4, 2016 at 15:54

    I’m fine with going 6-7. I can bring Logus along. A Lvl 6 Reach Bard (archaeologist) with a bit of combat capability, a smattering of all the various Knowledge skills, and a song in his heart.

  12. Lordkavos
    April 5, 2016 at 09:29

    I have Ulfgar, my Ulfen (human) drunken barbarian 5 / brawler 2 or Ember, my Ifrit swashbuckler 3 / Dawnflower dervish bard 1

    Im about to make my character for a tier 1 game on friday at the con. Could i play the same character or should i make a new one for this game so its established at the correct lvl?

    • Xazil

      In a normal PFS scenario like being run at the con you get 1xp each. So you wouldn’t likely have the gain the 6xp to go from level 1 to level 3 (which is the minimum level). Also most of the people above are expressing the desire to play the level 6-7 version of this game.

      You could play a level 7 pregen here and apply it to your lower level character later on, either as a level 1 or wait until that character reaches the level of the pre-gen. You may even wish to play the pre-gen of your characters class to get the feeling of it at higher levels.

      • SumoOnion
        April 6, 2016 at 06:09

        allright. I’ll play a lvl 7 pregen then!
        I’ll get back to you with which class then.

  14. Blackfoot
    April 6, 2016 at 06:22

    Since it looks like we’ll be playing up, I think I’ll be bringing Garbunkle (Two-weapon Fighter: Level 7.0) to this one.

  15. cmdisc
    April 6, 2016 at 09:31

    Between LK and BF we will have 2 melee types. Logus is melee reach with a range of Knowledge skills and roguish things. Not sure what Kyle is bringing, but we could probably use the healer, buffer, and debuffer types of some kind.

  16. Xazil

    Currently the party is forming pretty well at 6-7.

    Garbunkle – Two Weapon Fighter 7
    Ulfgar – Reach/Grapple Barbarian 7
    Logus – Reach Melee Bard 6
    Rebecca(?) – Reach / Heal / Face Cleric 7
    Pre-Gen ?

    Still awaiting one persons input. The party is missing Arcane and Skills somewhat.

    • SumoOnion
      April 7, 2016 at 03:00

      I can play the pregen as the arcane character if thats needed?

      • Blackfoot
        April 7, 2016 at 03:35

        I’m sure you can, but there is actually a significant list of different arcane types of pregens available, Wizard, Sorcerer, Bard, Arcanist… umm… Probably some others I can’t remember. Ezren the Wizard is probably the most straight forward one.

        • SumoOnion
          April 7, 2016 at 03:49

          What about Seoni the Sorcerer?
          Would that work? Or should I go for the Wizard?

          • Blackfoot
            April 7, 2016 at 04:35

            I’m sure that’d be fine.

          • Blackfoot
            April 7, 2016 at 04:36

            We’re going to kick ass regardless.. play what you like. 🙂

  17. SumoOnion
    April 7, 2016 at 05:15

    Haha allright.

    Xazil do you have the xml for Seoni the Sorcerer? Or should I bring it myself?

  18. Xazil
    April 7, 2016 at 07:40

    I have Seoni 7 on hand SumoOnion

    I see the game is full, is there any way to post for a standby position?

    My character is participating in 6-98 the evening before this session. If an opening becomes available I would love to get it.

    The character is a Rogue 3/Sorcerer 3; so you know what you’d be getting.

    • Xazil

      Unfortunately once the game gets to full numbers the signup page it doesn’t accept any more tentatives to allow for backups. I will now consider you the 1st alternate and try to contact you if someone drops out or is a no-show.

      • Acyd69
        April 7, 2016 at 22:36

        Thank you. I will make sure I am ready in case of such an event.

  20. cmdisc
    April 8, 2016 at 08:15

    If I can get into Xazil’s Sanos game the day before this, then I’m willing to vacate my spot here and let Acyd69 have it. Hopefully we’ll know more within the next 24 hours.

    • Acyd69
      April 8, 2016 at 08:42

      Only if you want to, no pressure.

    Ok, I got into the Saturday game so will be cancelling my booking for this. Acyd69, looks like you’re in. Enjoy. 🙂

    Opps, I wasn’t going to bring Rebecca, I’m bringing Evelyn. Sorry for not stating this much earlier. She’s level 6. Good news is, I have a high UMD, if we need a healer. Plus the bard can heal after the battle. You can bring any pre-gen you want.

  23. diablodevil2
    April 10, 2016 at 10:12

    I’m planning on bringing a level 5 Half Orc investigator. Sorry for being late on spotting this, my booking thing weren’t working, and bluh bluh. Anyway! I’m just waiting on my chronicle from my last game, still.
