Ohmygosh, I love meta-roleplay. I was browsing the group roleplays wanted against my judgment, and this looks awesome. I'll have to keep strong in my other games to justify wanting to join this one too, if it isn't too full. Unfortunately, or not, I was also interested in the "guy player experimenting with a female character" concept. Maybe it was a group exercise in roleplaying new things.
Anyway, if there's a lot of magic types, I was thinking of something a little different, like a heavily armored halfling fighter or something.
