Working on my character now, although I'm currently torn between making a proper Fighter or a Magus... While launching eldritch energies with one hand and wielding cleaving steel in the other is tempting, I'm not sure if it'd be in the party's best interests.
My RL group's main melee guy is playing a magus! You can do some scary, scary damage with a maximized shocking grasp spell. Their HP isn't as high as a straight fighter but they're not going to be squishy, and if we've got a paladin you shouldn't be the only one taking hits anyway. Not that straight fighters can't be fun too! I'm sure whatever you chose will be fine~
Aaaaand I think we've got considerably more applicants than spots in the game, so I'm going to go ahead and finish my bard, with the caveat that if Yugi and I both get in I'll re-spec her as a rogue or oracle or whatever the party needs
