Nitty gritty

- Aim for one post a day. I may bot you through combat if you take a long time to reply. Obviously if you're unable to post for a time just let me know and we'll work around it, not a problem.
- For combat, I'll post maps via Google drive that everyone can access and edit.
- Thumb every post, so if your character has nothing to contribute to the current scene, I know that at least you're following along.
- Post your character statblock in this thread, and make sure to include your PFS number and faction. I'll get the IC thread up this week.
- Subscribe to this thread and the IC thread when it goes up!
- Most importantly, have fun!

IC posts:

- Descriptive text for your character actions in plain black.
- "Character speech" for what your character says in bold and in quotes, possibly in a different color for every player.
- Thoughts what your character is thinking, italicized.
- OOC (use [ ooc ] [ /ooc ] tags, comes out grey) for OOC questions and information that is directly relevant to what is going on in game.

Venture-Captain Dennel Hamshanks ignored all pretense of pleasantries as he pounded into the meeting room in the Grand Lodge in Absalom. "Never time to do it right, is there? Gorum see us through this, then."

He grunted loudly and leveled his glare at the entire room. "Ever been to Qadira? Religion is almost a fad down there, with new cults springing up like weeds and getting crushed just as quickly. It has been that way for centuries."

"But some make a mark—on Qadira or in the Chronicles. Three centuries ago, the archdevil Moloch, preaching surrender to the desert heat, suddenly became the rage. Qadirans walked into the desert just to die just as if the heat was their paradise. The most devout sought out the hidden Citadel of Flame, where a fearsome bull-headed idol of Moloch judged them and sent the worthy to Malebolge, the sixth layer of Hell. No surprise that Sarenrae’s priests launched a mighty crusade to demolish the citadel. After two weeks, a great sandstorm swallowed the expedition—and, it seemed, the citadel and its idol. Nothing more was heard from either."


"Until ten days ago, that is. Sandstorms regularly scour the Qadiran highlands, and this time they emptied an entire valley of dunes. Poking out of that valley, visible only to those soaring above—such as a flying Pathfinder wizard—was the lofty spire of a fortress: the Citadel of Flame, presumably."

"Hopefully we are the first to learn about its reappearance and we need to act fast. The Decemvirate doesn’t expect any trouble, so they’re sending you. But I do expect trouble—who knows what’s infesting that citadel? Get in there fast and find that idol—it could be the key to the entire cult. It’s likely statue-sized, maybe as big as me, and should have a bull’s head on it. And for Gorum’s sake be careful. Your ship leaves in two hours."


You will leave Absalom and pass through Sedeq, the slave- and spice-capital of Qadira on your journey there, so you'll have the chance to purchase any equipment you might need.

An unusually weathered elf in desert robes chuckles. "But what do we do once we've found the statue? Are you expecting us to take it home with us? Or just knock it to pieces?"

Hamshanks stares blankly at the elf for a moment, before he composes himself and answers, "I'm sure I don't need to remind you that one of the primary goals of the Pathfinder Society is the retrieval of artifacts and the acquisition of knowledge, something we'd be hard pressed to achieve if our agents smashed the things we send them out for, rather than bring them back. You seem like a strapping young lad, I'm sure you'll find a way."

He pauses as he sits down with a sigh. "That said, destroying the thing would offcourse be preferable over leaving a potentially dangerous item out there for Gorum knows who to get their grubby paws on, but only in the event that you can't retrieve it. I'm confident you'll choose to do the right thing," he says, stressing those last two words.

Grask cracks the knuckles on his huge gnarled hand.

"Grask good at carrying heavy things. Grask bring back statue!"

He rubs one of his tusks.

"Grask spent many months in desert. We must bring lots of water, many die if no water."

Sandurel grins at Grask. "I like your plan, sir! You carry the statue!" He chuckles again. "I think it's been well over two centuries since someone called me a young lad, and I'm not sure anyone has ever called me 'strapping' before. You on the other hand..."

"Carrying heavy things is certainly a job for a man," Olivia says, making sure that everyone can tell just how bored she is. "I do hope there is something a little more worthwhile then some stupid doll."

"My secretary will provide you with everything you need regarding your travel arrangements. Check in with him before you leave," Hamshanks answers, motioning towards the door with clear intent.

I also recommend everyone double checks that they have at least some sort of ranged weapon handy, what with the flying demons on the cover. ^^

"I'm ready to get on with this. I expect that the travel arrangements will be adequate for someone as refined as myself."
Olivia Feigns a yawn, and idly checks the string of her crossbow.

After getting your travel arrangements from the venture-captain's clerk, a swift sea voyage sees you to Sedeq, a Qadiran settlement located south of the Zho Mountains. Asking around in the city gives you no new information beyond what Hamshanks already told you, though in Sedeq the faithful of Sarenrae spit on the sand whenever they speak of the Moloch cult.

After a tiring trek through the endless Qadiran dunes, the sun beats down on a maze of red slickstone, delicate arches and towering columns called hoodoos dotting the landscape. Somewhere within this expanse lies the Citadel of Flame and within, the idol of Moloch.

The path descends through a maze of cliffs, opening into a slot canyon of smooth red stone surrounded by towering hoodoos. At the far side, two hoodoos carved into enormous bull-headed men leer down on the canyon, while those nearby look like stylized flames. To either side, the canyon walls rise steeply in a series of rough ledges to the clifftops above. Brass doors on a massive wall of baked gray mud can be seen through an arch at the far side of the canyon.

Everyone gets a Perception or Survival check, and a Knowledge (planes) check (if trained).

Sandurel notices some faint scorch marks criscrossing the valley floor, and he realizes there must be fire elementals nearby...

As the group moves into the canyon and Sandurel shouts out a warning, two fire elementals quickly move from out behind two of the hoodoos, one to your left, and one to your right.

Tracker Round 1:

>(21) Sandurel [14/14]
>(19) Grask [25/25]

>(18) Balakin [8/8]
(9) Fire elementals


Everyone is up! Squares marked with a triangle are difficult terrain, squares marked with an H are the hoodoos, and provide cover. The knowledge check was enough to know that fire elementals are immune to fire, and vulnerable to cold.
