Episode 2: [Classified Sci-Fi Adventure]

With Episode 1 complete and as successful as it was, I don't want to waste any time before getting Episode 2 off the ground. And Episode 2 is something with lasers.

I'm not going to say much more than that for now, or really until the first session. Once I have my players for this session I'll post stats for four unnamed new races built using the new race builder rules from the Pathfinder Advance Race Guide playtest. Players can create their characters using those races and basic Pathfinder classes (with a few caveats I'll explain down the line - like how to handle equipment). Once all of that is handled, I'll announce the names of each of the races and their context at the start of the session and we'll be off and running.

I've already got a great prop for this adventure... I'm just not quite sure yet how to get it running inside the Paizo conference room. We'll see.

So here's the run down:

Episode #2: [Classified Sci-Fi Adventure]
Game System: Pathfinder
Campaign Setting: [Classified]
Adventure Description: The most important battles don't always happen on the front lines. While war might be brewing elsewhere in the Galaxy, the darkness of space disguises all manner of shadows. It's up to a single team of fixers to retake control of a doomsday weapon capable of changing the face of battle forever. 

Players Wanted: 4
Characters: 3rd-level Pathfinder characters created partially in advance of the first session. Race options will not be revealed until registration is closed.
Sources Available: Pathfinder Core Rulebook, Advance Player's Guide, Advance Race Guide, Ultimate Combat

Deadline for Registration: 2/24/12
Proposed First Session: Friday March 2nd

  1. Wish I was in on this one! I love a good sci-fi game. Too bad I'm so far away.

  2. Are we who played in Episode 1 prohibited from playing in this as well?

  3. New folks do get preferential selection, but hey, if no one signs up... well, at least I know I can handle you troublemakers.
