    ZEITGEIST Combat Balancing in PF

    It was the Cypher System we switched to. Oddly, I wouldn’t recommend it and would much prefer to have stuck to a crunchier system, but the idea was to compromise with some of my players who prefer to focus on story, and enable me to run the game without extensive conversion work. (I got to the...

    ZEITGEIST Combat Balancing in PF

    If it means anything, my players dropped Rufus Hammerton in round 1 too, and we were playing 4e back then. Happens some time. Been looking at PF2 lately and I like what I see. I'd love to have run Zeitgeist in that system. It looks ideal.

    Thanks. I'm so glad we did. And I'm also glad I maintained these reports because they'll always give us something to look back on. It was a pleasure to share, and to pick up ideas as we went along. I very much hope you do write another AP, though I can't imagine you or anyone else ever writing...

    Session 259, Part Four Epic Destinies King Baldrey With a flourish, King Baldrey signs into the law the Baldrian Codes, just one of many works that would go on to cement his reputation long after he stepped down from public life. He is surrounded by his ceremonial guard, the maustin caji, who...

    Session 259, Part Three Denouement Scenes Group Portrait Captain Rutger Smith knocks at Gupta’s door. With him is Bartholomew Pryce, editor of the newspaper Pryce of Progress, Kieran Sentacore and Khaled Valchek. They have stopped by to invite the ‘Heroes of Lanjyr’ to this week’s meeting of...

    "And they all lived happily ever after." Even as a child I remember thinking, "what a crock of shit, man".

    Session 259, Part Two The Royal To Do List (or, Proof that King Baldrey is Worthy to be Canonized) Weeks went by. The unit went their separate ways, and rarely came together again, except in small groups. Few of them saw much of the king, who busied himself with shepherding the new world he...

    I know, right? I have to say, though, I'd make him king in real life if I could. Especially right now.

    Session 259 - Denouement, Part One As the enormous energies released by the Stone of Not washed over Gupta, she realised that she could now make the same choice she had rejected in the Gyre: relinquish godhood and restore life to the thousands of eladrin women who had died during the Great...

    Finally got some time to piece together a response to this. I think the first thing I should say is that the finale of Zeitgeist lived up to the rest of the campaign, at least for us. The roleplaying gods smiled on us, and the 'big event' approach paid off, lending the final session the weight...

    We took a month off after the finale and will meet for the final denouement session in two days. I have a few observations to make about how the finale went down, but wasn’t sure where to begin. Is there anything you’re particularly curious about?

    Session 258, Part Eight Round 22 The energy tendril jumped to ‘9’. Two pillars had descended, and the unit benefited from two corresponding boons: they were bathed with the healing energies of the Life pillar, and they were all granted a little extra Time – time they desperately needed if...

    Session 258, Part Seven Round 19 As soon as the golem heart connected, Conquo found he was able to speak to Borne, just as Xambria had been able to speak with him when they shared a head. “Now, come on, Borne,” he said. “We both know what’s right and what’s wrong. Mother taught us both well.”...

    Session 258, Part Six Round 17 A bright spot appeared at ‘4 o’clock’. Nicodemus rallied Borne, who gradually lowered the Time pillar, once Nicodemus had replaced Illocus with Regulus, the lynchpin of the Watchmaker design. Korrigan handed off Jiese to Matunaaga, who ran like the wind back...

    Thanks. You deserve it! It's pretty mechanical by this point, but it was still fun to write (if a little time consuming). Oh, don't worry. You're good...

    Session 258, Part Five Round 14 Borne stomped on towards the Space pillar. Quratulain streaked through the sky towards him, taking a well-deserved breather as she fell. Rumdoom couldn’t catch the Ghost Council, but Borne had come close enough to present a more tempting target – Rumdoom...

    Session 258, Part Four Round 12 “Borne,” shouted Nicodemus. “Pull yourself together and fight on! Towards the Space pillar! Go!” As Gupta tried to outpace the colossus on his ponderous way, Nicodemus summoned a blade barrier in front of her; she leapt over it and kept on going. Hot on the...

    Session 258, Part Three Round 10 The entire area erupted in a ball of fire, as the Revolution launched incendiaries and the ancient demon exploded simultaneously. Conquo and Korrigan were both set on fire. Korrigan ignored the flames and spent most of the rest of the titanic encounter ablaze...

    Session 258, Part Two Round 8 As sheer luck would have it, the energy tendril swung back around and almost struck Borne, forming a barrier between him and his intended victims. The colossus roared in fear. Nicodemus sharply admonished him, “Stop feeling sorry for yourself and take a step...

    Session 258, Part One The Axis of Revolution Rounds 6-7 Across Elfaivar and the rest of Lanjyr, Gupta’s worshippers cried out in horror and agony. But the unit knew that death, for Gupta, was often a mere inconvenience, and, thankfully, so did her worshippers. Though pained, they did not die...
